We‘ve all been taught that it‘s not polite to listen to somebody else‘s private conversations. But sometimes you just can‘t help it but overhear some of it passing by, riding a bus, lifting weights at the gym, or casually shopping. And what makes these funny conversations as amusing as they are is that they're completely out of context.

This Instagram account, Overheard LA, is dedicated to such overheard conversations happening in Los Angeles, California. Stating that “We all have ears,” the creators invite Angelinos to share some of the best pieces that they have ever overheard in their daily lives while living in the City of Angels. From weird questions and ubiquitous conversation topics - the Los Angeles population always has some funny things to say. We think it’s hilarious, and for the rest, you’ll have to scroll down and see for yourself!

Agreed. Fox News is NOT a news channel. As admitted by the CEO, it is an entertainment channel which began as a project by right-wing propagandist Rupert Murdoch and Republican media strategist Roger Ailes to spread disinformation and promote GOP politicians.

Makes sense to me. I tried getting my news from multiple sources for a year (including Fox News) and was emotionally/intellectually drained by the clickbait and entertainment bits being sold as "news" on Fox. There's a difference between the news and entertainment, and Fox is not news.
