I think you overlook one important point. The news has long since ceased to be a source of information. The news is nothing more than entertainment. You aren't going to learn many facts by watching the news. At best, you may get a good feeling in your heart to see that everyone agrees with your particular viewpoint.

Mark Twain said, "He who doesn't read the papers is uninformed. He who reads the papers is misinformed". Nothing much has changed since Mr. Twain's time.

So somebody mixed up footage of a crowd. Who cares?

Not as bad as the time MSNBC cropped footage to make a black guy with a rifle appear to be a racist white man upset we have a black President. Now let's see...what do i care more about? Mixed up footage of a crowd numbering in the tens of thousands, or a deliberately doctored shot intended to pander to more white guilt and provoke racial tension?

The hypocrisy is staggering.

Sean Hannity took time Wednesday night to say that Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show" was correct and Fox News did air portions of the wrong protest. Hannity said that it was an "inadvertent mistake but a mistake nonetheless" and apologized.

He also thanked Stewart and his writers for watching the program.



I saw Hannity apologizing tonight, and said it was indeed an error. The video is in the link from his show.

They lie, they misrepresent facts, they present gossip and celebrities, but omit the important stories. All these and more are characteristics of the MSM. Fox is sometimes a bit more blatant in its methods, but they all do it. There is even a court ruling, which allows news stations to falsify the news.



In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

Back in December of 1996, Jane Akre and her husband, Steve Wilson, were hired by FOX as a part of the Fox “Investigators” team at WTVT in Tampa Bay, Florida. In 1997 the team began work on a story about bovine growth hormone (BGH), a controversial substance manufactured by Monsanto Corporation. The couple produced a four-part series revealing that there were many health risks related to BGH and that Florida supermarket chains did little to avoid selling milk from cows treated with the hormone, despite assuring customers otherwise. According to Akre and Wilson, the station was initially very excited about the series. But within a week, Fox executives and their attorneys wanted the reporters to use statements from Monsanto representatives that the reporters knew were false and to make other revisions to the story that were in direct conflict with the facts. Fox editors then tried to force Akre and Wilson to continue to produce the distorted story. When they refused and threatened to report Fox’s actions to the FCC, they were both fired.

But that is no new phenomenon. Here a video from John Pilger. In his speech he exposes wrongdoings of professional journalists.

if it makes a difference at this point, I get my news from two places...
ATS and The Daily Show.

Sadly, I do too.
If I have time, I go online and surf a few "news" sources for further explanation of the info. I originally read or heard about...

I like to get my news from at least 10 different places.

I like Drudgereport because of the list of links down the side mostly, but also because he does post intriguing headlines. If one grabs my attention, I will follow up and research it via many, many sites. Especially if it is something that has my attention enough to form a world view about,

Other country media is also very informative for finding things out about the US our own media won't cover. You have to take it with a dash of salt, of course, but if it matters enough, you can usually find some evidence the story is being stifled. Of course, they have propoganda just like we do!

People just have to be wise, and choose carefully.

The White House declared war on Fox News because they deemed Fox's headlines and content leaning toward Republicans instead of Democrats.


"They're widely viewed as, you know, part of the Republican Party," she said. "Take their talking points and put them on the air. Take their opposition research and put them on the air, and that's fine. But let's not pretend they're a news network the way CNN is." Even the captions the network uses to headline its stories, Dunn said, are slanted.

Sorry, chum. That makes Fox news a credible news source.


Oh - come on? You are really buying into the left right paradigm? Give me a break.

They offer you Fox as an alternative, and you buy it? This is obvious deception - Fox are pieces of crap - they are the controlled opposition - you really need to go back and have a look at the 'good cop, bad cop' psychology of this.

Mass media is owned - it's only useful purpose is to watch it to try and understand what opinion they are trying to give people, then understand what their motives are for doing so.

Wow... "Professor"... Perhaps you should do a little more research before you post. TDS went after Mitchell with a fervor that the 'News' networks could only dream of. As the poster above pointed out - the Jim Kramer gutting is legendary. Olberman has also been firmly in the crosshairs. And who could forget the infamous TDS vs. Crossfire spat that lasted for the duration of CNN's program?

Go back to class...

All the media channels engage in propaganda. The Right and Moderates have one channel. The Left has ABC, CBS, NBC / MSNBC (CEO is and Obama Appointee), CNN and nearly every large newspaper in the entire country.

The DNC and the RNC are equally corrupt and full of it. Until you realize that you are just victims.


STAY ON TOPIC STAY ON TOPIC STAY ON TOPIC

THEY FAKED FOOTAGE TO TRICK PEOPLE INTO BELIEVING THAT THERE WAS MORE PEOPLE RALLYING THAT THERE REALLY WAS.BLA BLA BLA BLATANT LAIRS! THEY SHOULD BE BOYCOTTED !!!!!!!!!

FOX ARE NEWS NAZI'S !!

Just like a typical right winger, Instead of looking at the facts of a statement,
They change the subject and try to win that argument.
They do the same move a litigator would do during a trail,pretend they didnt here an accusation and bring up something totally different and argue that to
sway people off the topic at hand.oldest trick in the book.
The right wingers are using it more and more every day.
They rather see our country go down the tubes than admit they screwed up !

UUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!

You have one message,
It's from reality,
"Wake up and smell the coffee !!!"
you should write it down !

you do realize that the OP was not suggestion this is only at fox news, but this event happened at fox news.

Your tit for tat philosophy is the very thing that makes the masses of this country so dull.

This thread isnt about MSNBC, CNN, ABC, etc. It's about fox news. Yes the others have done it. IF you wish to discuss that - please do everyone a favor - grow up and go start your own thread.

The ignorance is staggering.

Who wants to take bets that had this never aired on the Daily Show - it never would have been retracted?


They played it off so well. Ohhhhh Sean Hannity - does your stupidity know no boundaries?

You're kidding, right? I don't care where the info comes from and Stewart has long been a source for pointing out the hypocrisy that comes out of Fox. If the information is undeniable fact, it's undeniable fact - regardless of the source


No doubt, they have showed this on all the media outlets except of course FOX. They are not talking about it at all...

But CNN, even my local news channel carried that story.

Sure the DailyShow Broke the story... but it has sense been corroborated etc.

It's pretty sickening if you ask me.

Really? You don't care about news stations falsifying things in general? Only when it is a news station you have issues with?

Now *that* is Hypocrisy.

People don't generally know that the opinion shows on FOX news are in fact opinion shows. They take them for News Shows. (That's really not the fault of FOX)

What a bunch of baloney! You must think that everybody that tunes into Fox is an idiot! For you're information, most people DO know the difference between news and opinion shows. Granted, there are probably some folks that think the opinion shows are news, but I would bet that that number is small.

It is quite amusing that so many libs get their panties in a wad over Fox.

But when a show splices footage from another rally and portrays that footage as from the story they are covering, you can see how they may be misleading the public.

And according to the Yahoo article someone posted, Hannity did admit it was footage from another event. Said is was a mistake. At least he had the backbone to fess up.

Sheesh, you people are ridiculous. With all that's going on, you concentrate your energies on ranting and raving aobut Fox. I recommend you spend your time and energy on more worthwhile projects.

I have to say that it took me quite a while to find the TDS video on a site that would let me see it and Stewart and his crew were quite astute to have noticed the difference in footage.

However, if TDS was a real news show, they would have contacted Hannity to see just what the problem was because it is easy to make mistakes such as this especially when some crew member is putting the video footage together.

So, it is quite a stretch to call this actually faking the news, since Hannity's show is not really news but commentary on the news.

Nonetheless, the video was misleading and someone should have called them out, even if it was just for laughs and not for some honest reason like correcting an error.

It's really easy to get the wrong idea about Fox News when you never really watch Fox News and only ever watch those who take the errors and faults and blow them out of proportion for political and financial reasons.

By the way, Hannity did acknowledge the error and apologized for it. Did anyone see that? Probably not, because you'd have to actually watch Fox News to know that--or read this post.



Now, that's honest journalism.

the reason this has been exposed in such a big way, is that people are tired of the hundreds of other distortions that FOX puts out as actually being true.
this is why i don't even turn them on anymore. i have fact checked a number of political stories put out by FOX, and found ALL of them distortions, if not outright lies.
i grew tired of doing that, and i now know they are just the T.V. media arm, of right-wing political lies.
