In the jest to show Obama in a bad light again Fox News copied a article from the Onion which is known for it's satire and presented it as truth to
their readers. What the Fox News did not do was inform it's readers it was a joke and the gullible readers of Fox took it as truth. More likely is
they thought that their viewer base wouldn't be able to tell the difference. In other words, they really know their audience.
Screen-shot of the article with some comments from Fox News readers:
The article from Fox is now
taken off but the damage is done by their idiocy.You won't see a retraction or apology posted either. They knew exactly what they were doing. It is a
disgrace that Fox is allowed to dupe its citizens with disinformation like it currently does.
This is honestly a shame. I wonder how often the do stuff like that, post little snippets and start rumors. I knew a lot of people would believe it
was real, but it's still depressing that Americans, especially the right wing apparently, are that stupid.
