The Ten Most Egregious Fox News Distortions (VIDEO)


www.huffingtonpost.com

Fox News has defended itself against administration criticism by saying the White House has confused its pundit shows with its news programs. But the network constantly, misleadingly disparages Obama and his administration in its supposedly straight reporting. Here are the ten of the worst examples; there are many more.

Wading through faux news stories is a lot like wading for merde' (look merde' up...hint its French) if only because they call themselves fair and balanced even when it's obvious that they are not...and before someone brings up Keith Obermann...he doesn't pass himself off as a reporter or his show anything other than commentary.

So here without further adiu is faux's stinkiest merde'.


Bill Hemmer Accuses Obama "Czar" Of Condoning Statutory Rape

Bill Hemmer reported that Department of Education official Kevin Jennings knew of a "statutory rape" case involving a 15-year-old student but "never reported it." In fact, the student was above the age of consent.

Fox News Crops Biden Dishonestly

In March, Fox News's Martha MacCallum presented a clip of Vice President Joe Biden saying "the fundamentals of the economy are strong" -- and presented it as from an interview that weekend. In fact, the clip came from a 2008 campaign event at which Biden was quoting Sen. John McCain.

Fox News Deceptively Crops Obama On Health Care

In April, Fox News's Wendell Goler reported on an Obama question-and-answer session that was cut short to make it seem as if the president wanted a health care system "like the European countries." In fact, he was just restating a question -- he went on to say that he opposed such a system.

Megyn Kelly Accuses Sonia Sotomayor Of "Reverse Racism"

In April, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly described a "problematic" remark by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as "reverse racism" and said it sounded like she thought "that Latina judges are obviously better than white male judges."

Fox News Passes Off Republican Talking Points As Its Own Reporting

In May, Fox News's Jon Scott said the network had decided to look back on how the stimulus "grew, and grew, and grew." In fact, the entire report came from a Senate Republican Communications Center press release, complete with typo.

Fox News Misleads On PATRIOT Act

In October, Fox News's Trace Gallagher and Bill Sammon claimed that Senate Democrats would like provisions of the PATRIOT Act that helped catch a suspected terrorist to "go bye-bye." It was a total distortion of both the proposed changes and the terror case.

Chris Wallace Promotes "Death Book" Smear

Wallace had a former Bush administration aide Jim Towey as a guest on "Fox News Sunday" in August and together they pushed numerous falsehoods about a Veterans Affairs administration pamphlet on end-of-life issues.

Fox News Anchor Calls Obama Fist Bump A "Terrorist Fist Jab"

On the news show "America's Pulse," E.D. Hill described Barack and Michelle Obama's fist bump at a campaign event last summer as a "terrorist fist jab." She later apologized and claimed that was how it had been "characterized in the media."

Fox News Makes Up Math

In a segment on Obama's budget in April, the network claimed it was four times bigger than President Bush's costliest plan. That simply isn't true.

Fox News Promotes Tea Party Protests

Fox News reporters constantly promoted the Tea Party movement and also lied about coverage of the September Tea Party march on Washington in an ad. The network completely ignored an equally large gay-rights march in October.

Fox tells certain things to keep its cover kept, but it still leaves out the most important issues such as the fact that Israel dictates our foreign policies, our economy is almost totally destroyed and the federal reserve is raping the american public.

Obama and his team have more important things to do than spar with faux news but then faux is so blatant in its bias it cannot even call itself news without snickering to itself.

Wow, I didn't know about the Joe Biden crop! That's pretty foul. My favorite of all time has got to be the "terrorist fist jab"!
That's classic. You can't make this stuff up!

FOX is entertaining. That's for sure.

Let me get this straight, you are using huffington post as your source? So a left wing, extreme liberal smear and hate site is your source for stuff knocking Fox News. Seems that the Democratic excuse machine is going into overdrive trying to cover up all those times the Democrat puppets are not staying on message and letting the truth slip out.

I guess your biases are showing a little too much comrade. Perhaps you should try a bit of fair and balanced without it being filtered through the distortion of the left wing spin machine. Have you ever even seen any Fox News?

The NEWS Station who is without sin may cast the first stone...


They all are committing these crimes against us... One is not better than the other.


Something I heard a long time ago... Take the best... Discard the rest!

Well that did it for me - you should have NEVER mentioned Michael 'media whore' Moore in the same sentence as something you WANTED me to watch - if its ANYTHING like the absolute CRAP he spews then count me out.

Good day...

I said GOOD DAY SIR!

You have to ask yourself who funds this crap? I suspect that you will find some interesting left wing money behind this. It's a favorite liberal trick -- dress up your talking points in a self righteous pseudo documentary to evoke the sympathy of the masses.

Regardless of the source, the information is true. Please provide counter evidence if you have it.

And of course it's going to be a liberal site to run this story...do you think Fox would point out it's own mistakes and fraud?
A better way to response to this thread would have been to give examples that the liberal media is guilty as well, instead of just moaning about the source and not even denying the information.

Really, is that the best you can do? Anyone can be funding it. Your just guessing. For all you know journalists(who think Fox is the the biggest joke) could be funding it.

But it is really hard to argue what is shown in teh clips. Some points are just outright disgusting. With or without a documnetary format.


Jon Stewart kills fox all the time.

I love how this shows all the msm and the hoopla of swine flu. And how Glenn Beck terrorizes people about it but then turns around and won't say whether he is getting it or not.

jon stewart msm and swine flu

This one is CLASSIC

poll bearers

jon stewart


And this is a perfect example!, How JS shows major Fox double standards and hypocrisy.
