As Ive said many times, FOX lies. Its what they do. Here in this link Sean Hannity is very proud of the fact that the Tea Bagger anti-health care rally supposedly got 20-45K in protesters. As Stewart discovered, Hannity used video from two different events and tried to pass them off as the same crowd.

FOX viewers, how dumb do these people think you are?

EDIT: I guess I should add that its a hilarious bit of video.

Oh, waaa, waaaa....Fox News provides a much needed dose of real news, this story for example:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,571665,00.html?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a4:g4:r2 :c0.000000:b0:z5

Un-f*cking-believeable.

Is there still any doubt about FAUX News?

All the cases of under reporting are OK, though. The New York Times reported a crowd in Houston at 2,000 when 8,000 signatures were recorded. Other estimates showed it at 10,000 and that's just one example.

That's a hell of a lame example.


Yeah, you're right. There's no real difference between 2,000 and 10,000. Sorry to nitpick.

Glen Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage, Ann Coulter, Gerry Callahan, et al (there are SO MANY) are all modern-day Archie Bunkers, put on the screen and the radio to remind us of how STUPID being that insensitive and racist really sounds. Thanks, FOX!

Maybe some proof of the actual figures would be in order so it's not just your word against that of the Times? Or how about anything that suggests that this is even an error by the Times?

I took your deflection of a reply as a tacit acknowledgment that Fox deliberately lies to viewers as a matter of policy. Now if you think you can prove that the NY Times does the same thing, I'd be very interested to see you try. But you'll probably have to come up with something more substantive than two differing figures of an estimate of the size of some random unnamed crowd.

If the numbers were so good at the rally I have to ask why they had to doctor the film of the event. I thought the 'expose' Jon Stewart did was hilarious.

No surprise. Any Rupert Murdoch owned entity is always under suspicion of lack of integrity/ unethical behavior.

It doesn't matter how many people were at the rally...what matters is that Hannity deliberately ran footage of a different event, one which had far more people. If one of the three networks did this, heads would roll, but Hannity will smirk and grin and his followers will still worship him, and call him a "Great American."

Where's the NY Times article you are referring to?

In looking for it, I did come across this...should be fun to watch...

Did any heads roll for this? Dredging up a fake smear quotes is OK...

http://innerbanks.blogspot.com/2009/10/cnn-lies-about-rush-limbaugh.html

I'm curious if the FOX haters hold any other outlets to standards of journalism. Not a deflection per se, just in the interest of consistency.

If other networks have done similar things, I'd welcome a link to proof. If it's going to pass as news....no matter who's passing it off as such....I'd like it to be accurate. So, any examples of other networks doing it anyone would like to share?

So, are you saying Hannity doctored video footage to counter CNN and that makes it ok?

Also, please post that NY Times article you mentioned, thx.

I'm curious if you can see the irony in chiding "FOX haters" for not holding others to high journalistic standards. Do you hold anyone to any standards at all? It seems to me like you're willing to defend any Fox practice, circumstances be damned, by attempting to equate their actions to those of other networks. We're not talking about CNN though, we're talking about Fox. CNN surely makes errors. That was a bad one, although on its face, it sure sounds like something Rush would say. No doubt they could have run with any one of the hundreds of other racist remarks by Rush throughout his career and the message would have been the same. But my question for you is: does CNN take deliberate steps to lie to their viewers in order to misrepresent political issues and, in theory, bolster one particular party or platform? Because it's simply undeniable that Fox does this. And, try as you and your fellow Fox cheerleaders may, it's entirely indefensible.


I'm not necessarily defending FOX, Marc. If they do something dishonest that's wrong. I am defending consistency and holding any and all news outlets to the same standard. Honesty.

Standards? In today's megamedia? Pfft.

At this point there's about one litmus test left: It's BS or it isn't.

My favorite quote from that article:

"Under clear skies and a perfect moon, crowds packed the field at the Sam Houston Race Park and cheered loudly as speakers called for the people to take control of the American government."

One would think, with such a massive crowd, they could take control of government by voting? I wonder what their plan is for when that fails...





You mean, as in New Jersey and Virginia??

Yet you fail to mention NY-23. I'll take that over two governorships anytime.

I think democracy worked in Virginia and New Jersey....AND it worked in New York when outsiders weren't able to ride in and upset the apple cart. The people made their decisions and voted...agree with them or not...democracy in action.

Don't know why anyone would want to watch FOX, the spin zone which is unfair and unbalanced.
