Since this is such a long topic and I've been away for a couple days and, therefore, wasn't able to partake when this thread was fresh, I'm just
going to take the liberty to throw my opinion in after much debate about this topic has already occured.
My disclaimer is that I HATE Fox News. I hate all cable news but Fox just makes me want to
With that said, I couldn't help but wonder as I was watching this how many times we have ALL been subject to this blatant disregard for truth and
complete skewering of the facts in order to get a satisfactory portrayal of events on behalf of whomever is trying make things seem one way when they
are entirely another.
I saw a few posts complaining, this wasn't proof, Jon Stewart is hardly reliable, etc. Regardless of all that, the proof is in the pudding and was
put right in front of your faces. Jon Stewart had a clip from the Glenn Beck show using footage of his 9/12 event that was the EXACT SAME FOOTAGE
Hannity used on his show for the Health Care reform protest.
It really doesn't matter if Hannity knew of what was occuring. He may just be a patsy who is just as much taken in by Fox News' shameful "news"
reporting like it's own viewers. What does matter is that the people who work behind the scenes sure did take the time to make sure it looked like a
whole lot more people attended the Health care reform protest than really did.
What matters is that those behind the scenes at Fox News WANT people tho THINK there were that many people when there weren't for one reason or
Back to my initial question of how much does this type of thing happen to us? How much of how we perceive events/issues that are important to us is
based on this kind of alteration of the truth?
What would America really be like if this type of thing NEVER happened? If we knew EXACTLY how everything happened and were given the chance to make
up our own minds after we are given FACTS not altered footage, heavy editing, and hot headed opinions?
