That doesnt mean that Sean Hannity didnt lie to his viewers by simply lying about what Obama said at his speech. Can you address that part or you simply going to ignore it? I just explain a couple of post ago that it was the only source I could find for the video.

To be honest I dont know why I guy like Sean Hannity, a person who I used to like is resorting to this type of crap, smear journalism. I mean it pays the bills but is no better than the National Enquirer, the only good thing left to watch at Fox is O'reilly and Shepard Smith although O'reilly sometimes gets on my nerves.

Every single other "journalist" at Fox are just tools.

This type of practice of claiming something that is false as being factual..... Remember the presidential election that was won by Al Gore and how they were the first to say that Bush had won... Remember the day when the actual recount of votes that had been hampered by the attorney general of Florida was to be shown on morning network broadcast and Fox was the first to accuse terrorist of flying the planes into the WTC and Pentagon superseding the televising of the actual vote count evidence..... Oh well.

Both Fox and ACORN are crap organizations, full of liars, bigots, and hate panderers.

These two were made for each other.

Did you ever notice that when people can't win an argument, that they resort to name calling?

Oh..when your precious Faux News does it.."it was all a mistake"..

But when NBC or CNN does it it's "Liberal Propaganda and Brainwashing"..

..I am telling man..you right wing conservatives are hypocrites..


And the left is not?
If you ever want to know what the left is up to, look at what they are accusing the right of, and then you will have perfect knowledge of what the Left has been doing all along.

There is no difference between the party's anymore. Stop this pathetic Left vs Right bickering.

The FAUX NEWS apologist posts on this thread crack me up.

What happened to DENY IGNORANCE? (As opposed to blind allegiance)

If they are, in fact, "Fair and Balanced" they'd retract this false accusation.
If not, I'd say they are "Unfair and Unbalanced."

Besides they claim, "We report, you decide" as kind of a National Enquirer Tabloid disclaimer. Which is why they are not taken very seriously.

Just don't forget, THEY decide WHAT to report.

Hilarious.

Interesting. It's like the Manson Family getting off because they claimed to have killed more people than they did? Acorn is finished. No, it won't happen overnight, but they are done, lefties. You see, in the real world, the "deep pockets" that provide the "individual contributions" needed to run these organizations become fearful of being mixed up with anything that could hurt their Hollywood image, so the funds dry up. Hopefully, the geniuses who run ACORN will be observed and reported on as they open similar front organizations with different names, so that they too can be ratted out. They should be followed from hole to hole until completely cornered, then given a minimum wage job at Goodwill and watched like a hawk.
I rarely borrow phases from the left, but there is one that sticks in my mind. At one of the leadership conferences where the Allies determined the fate of Nazi Germany, Churchill used the phrase "total war". Stalin, through his interpreter, corrected the Prime Minister. "No, Absolute War."
The difference may be minimal in English, but in Russian there is clearly a difference.

They were reporting what they knew. All they had was the video. A police inquiry to the supposed admission of murder had not been done yet and as I understand it was done as a result of Fox's story on this.

And how is this incident more newsworthy than CNN's screwup where they were reporting shots fired on the Potomac when the Coast Guard was conducting training excercises.

You bash Fox, but they all screw up equally. I smell bias here and it stinks.

Didi you ever notice that when people who can't defend their position engage in deflection?

Ah, yes. The old "You didn't fool ME. I was on to you the whole time" defense. Sort of like that creepy San Francisco radio host (I've already forgotten his name) who said he was only doing research for a book on child pornography when he was arrested on kiddie porn charges.

The woman may have been lying about setting up her ex so she could kill him. But her motive was no doubt to impress the "pimp and ho" with her own clever criminality, not to protect herself from them. Typical trailer trash talk.

I watched Fox last night specifically to see the new video, and not once do I recall them saying that the woman's claims were 100% true. The girl who plays the fake prostitute in the videos even said they weren't certain that the woman actually had killed her husband and that they were trying to verify it. So how exactly did they get punked?


I agree with this. I watched the reporting on this 4th clip of undercover work. It was stated by Fox they tried to check the veracity of the woman who said she killed her man's story. Was the worker trying to portray herself as bad a** to impress fellow street criminals?

Why would you expect her response to the undercover video as any more credible than her made up murder story. The point of Fox's reporting is to indicate Acorn hires lunatics that have no moral code whatsoever as tax advisers and business consultants.

You have to ask yourself how credible are mortgage applications from this organization? Based on what I have seen, which may be narrow, lying seems to in order. These types of false mortgage applications have a real economic impact as far as I can tell.

Faux news
flair and brainwash news.


Faux is the top rated cable news media outlet...they are the top of the pyramid of what is considered the MSM.

Yep...I now believe the MSM is a lie machine...considering Faux is the leader.

Oh she lied about killing her husband? OK, good, that makes it OK for ACORN to offer advice in human trafficking, and how to skirt the law to open an underage brothel. Very progressive............

You are sooo wrong!

Posters on ATS are the citizenry expressing "opinions" and "comments".

Fox News is a supposed "professional news network" manned by highly paid "professional journalists" who are practicing "journalism".
