Because everyone has a kneejerk reaction to condemn and damn Fox News, though even according to our own president, they are the only news media
organization that has failed to "fall in line" and toe the WH propoganda. Well, Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
Yet, NBC just had to oust their own over deceptive media clips, designed to severely mislead the public, and to sway public opinion on hot topics, not
once, not twice, but 5 times. Most notably with the Trayvon Martin shooting and Sandy Hook.
Yes, I know, people will now chime in and say, "So does Fox News!"
The point of the matter is Fox News has made errors of posting wrong clips, but the INTENT behind the errors is what is to be investigated. In the
incidents with Fox News, the basic story line was not affected, it didn't change the totality of the story.
With NBC, that is completely the opposite. The entire basis of the story was totally false, and the carefully edited clip was used to support the
false stories. This is where the two media organizations differ.
With the Sandy Hook incident, the story NBC pushed was the father was heckled during his testimony. The clip was edited to support that agenda, which
was supportive of the "gun nut culture" and showing how they were nasty people. Supportive of WH agenda.
In truth, the entire clip shows he asked a question, and the people were answering him.
Totally NOT the WH agenda.
It took all MSM EXCEPT Fox News - ONE year to even report at all on Fast and Furious, let alone to reveal anything that even slightly discolored or
tarnished the WH or Holder.
Fox News did what should be considered award winning investigative, in depth, real, boots on the ground reporting about Fast and Furious. The WH
agenda ever since has been to bash Fox for this, and to turn people away from listening to them.
It was because of Fox News that Congress even began their investigation. It is still because of Fox that any attention is still being paid to this.
If you want real information on F and F, Fox News independent investigative reporting was some of the best reporting done in recent years.
There are still many misperceptions about F and F that the other MSM push, but that Fox uncovered, and were proven factual in Congressional
Get that. Proven in Congressional Hearings. Regardless of any personal opinions on Fox News Corp, they were vindicated in Congressional hearings.
Would be interesting to check and see, but I think the reporter working on this was up for some awards.
