It's so easy for them (Fox, CNN, msm, etc.) to manipulate a "story". It just makes you wonder how often on a daily basis they deceive people. Why would anyone choose to get any sort of information from any of these sources? The sad thing is many people think these are credible sources of information.


good catch op

Big surprise. Fox is to Neocons what CNN is to Socialists. Neither group is working in the interest of the people of this country. Why do you think the Tea Party consists of all political and racial groups? And don't parrot the BS that the MSM would have you believe that it's a bunch of white conservative racists, either.

Thanks OP for this thread. I'm glad people are keeping the MSM in check. I bet the msm hate's the internet. No wonder they want to control it. Good work!

A CPAC official told Fox News that the big story is not Paul winning again but rather the strength of Romney's second-place finish. Read more: www.foxnews.com...

Hahahahahahahaha. That's great.

That article is so completely biased, they're not even trying anymore

This is hard to believe..

I don't really want to believe it, but the evidence is there.

I find it hard to believe fox would do this..

Maybe it was a technical mix up or problem?

The evidence is leading toward this was done on purpose..

A dead give away about Fox was the hiring of Bill O'Reilly. That right there should have been the key moment? Though i have conservative values, I guess more along the lines of libertarian/Independent, ( I dont wish to affiliate my self with any left or right political party), I dont know how anyone can sit in front of the tv and watch any of the media outlets....all it does is start arguments about who is more reliable than the other, when we all agree they are all biased? Eradicate the media outlets, and that is one step closer to liberty!

In my opinion only idiots watch Fox...




Though I'm not a " FOX " supporter, are you suggesting that only educated people like yourself watch the oh so unbiased and fair reporting of CNN, or MSNBC perhaps?


CNN is not slanted...they are middle of the road, however, they lack journalistic investigation and do not call out propaganda spin anymore because they are trying to balance and to do so may seem like they are taking sides. CNN has turned into a sham where you will be no more informed at the end of a cycle as you were at the beginning.

MSNBC is a liberal organization..highly slanted to the left. They do not make up facts and corrupt data though, they take the facts that support their views and push them forward, often ignoring things that go against their narrative.

Of course I am talking about the commentators, not the news. All 3 stations do alright when it comes to the actual news (with some exceptions to fox whom deems news to also be what their commentators spoke about the night before..but they don't do that too often).

I don't mind the commentators. There is room for Beck, Maddow, Hannity, and all that..they just shouldn't be on a news channel in my opinion..it confuses the public to think that somehow commentary = facts.

I think a new law should be considered...a banner across the top of all commentary shows stating its commentarys, or "opinions" and not news.

Ffs, isn't there a law that if you present news you cannot lie? I'd sue them to hell over this and other crap they've been caught lying about.

That's messed up.

The poor guy got sandbagged too, because he wasn't even there and so had no reason to challenge the video.
This is really insidious, but then again, this is really FOX news.

As a matter of fact, no. There is no such law, and media production is in no way obliged to be accurate, truthful, or factual in any sense. PERIOD.

The courts have already decided that not only is the above statement TRUE and legally accurate... the media has NO OBLIGATION to tell you that they don't have to tell the truth... let alone when they are lying. They may - IN FACT - lie and outright CLAIM IT IS TRUE... without consequence or penalty.

Well whopedoo. There's a point that needs changing. We have a system here that is based on volunteering of media people. Council of public word is the closest translation I can come up with. It's not an official or anything thought. It does hand out decisions that courts take very seriously thought. Maybe something like that should be in US too. It's ok to make stuff up in shows that present opinions instead of news. That line however is bit difficult to find considering something like FOX that is 99% opinion and it presents it as a news.
for this.

I remember being shocked to learn about the whole - they can lie with impunity - business. I expected that most people would rather not have their names and images associated with fabrications and entertainment productions passing themselves off as reality....

But then... when you turn on the TV .... 'reality' begins to set in...

It's abuse of freedom of speech and freedom of press as far as I'm concerned. Isn't the very definition of news that is something factual?

Hey Mccain was booed by conservatives and look where that got him.



Yeah, he thankfully lost the election and completely lost his mind in the past few years.

Gee Fox News distorting the fact?!?!? SHOCKING!!!! (sarcasm)
Fox News ALWAYS distorts facts....this is just buisness as usual for them. Try watching the documentary OUTFOXED : Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism

This is turning out to become a promotion of Ron Paul more than it is a detraction or diversion.

So either, they meant to make us want to back his ideals....

Or they are actually this desperate and foolish to have this one backfire on them.

Rather astonishing to say the least. Either way. Hmmmm

Of course, it's entirely up to you, but just imagine all the stuff that you're hearing on FOX (and believing?) that is completely fabricated. To me, it's EASY to believe FOX would do this. I've watched them doing this kind of thing for years. Glenn Beck is the epitome of ignorance and just insanity.

It's hard for me to watch MSNBC anymore, either. They sound very much like FOX did a couple years ago: Slanting all the stories, exaggerating the parts that make Democrats look good and the parts that make Republicans look bad... It's all the same stuff. But MSNBC doesn't outright lie like this. At least I haven't caught them at it yet.
