Once again, not news.

Fox will do just about everything and anything. Nothing new. If you don't like it, don't watch it or discuss it with people who like it. To each his own, even if full of lies.

I don't have a favorite politician -
they all represent nightmare material to me -
but this is just plain pathetic and wrong - and on purpose.

Here is the embeded video

And then people ask why FOX is not considered a newsworthy channel.

Please... you can't be serious...

After watching the complete linked video and the comments from an obviously unbiased youtube video submitter, it is now proven beyond a shadow of a doubt...

People need to get out of the house.... and experience life...

If that can't be done, and people are worried about how a cable news channel represents a news story, it might be a good thing to represent the material in a less sensationalist way, otherwise you are no better than what you claim to be against.

Idiots or genius? There are enough similarities to possibly cause confusion.

They both were Muslim, and they both led a reign of terror through the DC area.

Considering the similarities....I'll give FOX a pass on this one.

I don't watch Fox News enough to make a decision if these examples are the norm. I have seen Fox News report on actual news and they present the same stuff as the other news networks. So the "if it's on Fox News, it can't be trusted stuff" just doesn't sit well with me. I don't think any of the news networks can be trusted. For sure, in my opinion, Fox News is predominantly Republican bent during, especially, the morning crap show and the evening crap shows. Really, though, I can't see any difference between the other cable shows, in that the others have a Democrat bend to them. Wouldn't it be nice if there really was a news network that truly expressed both real liberal viewpoints and conservative viewpoints, instead of Democrat or Republican viewpoints? Wouldn't it be nice if these "news" shows expressed, also, the opinions of those of us inbetween? The libertarians, the constitutionalists, the greens, the socialists, the communists,

I really hate this you are with me or against me crap. And the manipulation of news, via a "mix up" of videos, or staged events, is not the activities of just Fox News. I'll give an example of just two events, that were not perpetrated by Fox News.

The fake military records of GWB, by CBS.
Okay, let's go into the wayback machine for this next one. Yes, it's old, but it still stands concerning a network that has since this incident, commited the same sort of frauds. NBC. The expose of a dangerous car. If hit from behind it could cause the car to burst into flames. Not trusting that the car would actually burst into flames, the producers put a small bomb in the back of the car so that when it was hit from behind, it exploded, via remote control devices and said bomb.

Yes, Fox News seems to be a major criminal in propaganda, but I believe it's only realized due to extreme scrutiny, while ignoring other news channels.

Edited to add "enough" in the first line of my post.

Are you kidding?

I'd like all of you Obama-Muslim theorists to A) provide hard evidence and B) acknowledge that by the Constitution of the United States a person of any religion - yes, even a MUSLIM - can be President of the United States. This shouldn't even be a debate.

Also, to compare Obama to the DC sniper is both ignorant and insulting.

I am a democrat. I don't agree with Fox on everything. Just like I don't agree with CNBC on everything. If they are wrong and do stupid stuff that's bad and they shouldn't do it. But somebodies got to stand up to this Obama socialist pig who is destroying this nation and turning us into a socialist country. Fox does that more than the rest of them. The other news networks are so controlled by the White house it's not funny. There is enough real stuff to prove Obama is wrong without faking.

If the shoe fits, let him wear them. Obama's friends are terrorists, the sniper and Hasan the murderer are terrorists and muslim. Obama is a muslin, well... at least when no one is looking.

It seemed to me like a simple error on the part of the editor/director. They cut to the next segment too early, not really a big deal. When a broadcaster is running content 18 hours a day, you can expect slip-ups every once in a while.

We all know Fox is terribly biased, but I think equating this to a purposeful smear attempt is taking it a step too far.

posted on Nov, 15 2009 @ 08:45 PM
This is just a FOX News smear campaign --nothing more, nothing less. The Obama / DC Sniper was a mistake, that's all. A 1-2 second mistake and this YouTuber bashes FOX. Wow.

I agree with the one poster...people need to get out and experience life more often.

What I'm about to say is complete speculation - I'm not really reading that much into this incident. This is just a thought:

When the clip was shown of Obama, the news caster was in the process of talking about someone getting killed and how the killer was going to die. The two words that stood out to me a lot were "kill" and "die" - especially die, there was a lot of emphasis on that word.

Subliminal messaging anyone? A lot of people are afraid of lone wolf terrorism in the United States now that we have a democrat in office, and a lot of people think that Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and the like are going to push extremists over the edge...

But his is probably just a mistake or some stupid intern getting his jollies.

All msm is propaganda and spin.

Go figure a guy with the handle Liberalviewer would think only fox news is bad....

A thread on a simple technical error and it actually gets flags? When hate reaches this level, the hater can no longer be considered reliable for any information on anything. Critical thinking has left the room.

I doubt it was an error. Fox puts many subliminal things into their broadcasts.

If it looks like a Bin Laden, and sounds like a Bin Laden, it probably is, well, a sniper...

They reckon a Fox can't smell it's own tail ,

..... but that tale certainly stinks from where I'm sitting .

OP needs to find a new hobby , maybe Fox hunting ,

then he can really run with bloodhounds !

I think it was something far more sinister. I think that Fox was subtly trying to suggest that someone should kill the president.

I think that Fox news needs to be investigated fully for this to see whether or not it was in fact their intent to try and influence someone to attempt to gun down the president. I think it was.
