  1. 'Fox And Friends' Anti-Obama Video Could Double As GOP Ad [UPDATE: Fox News Issues Statement] (VIDEO)

    "Fox and Friends" aired a remarkable four-minute video on its Wednesday show.

    The video, which the hosts of the show advertised as taking a "look back" at President Obama's four years in office, could easily be mistaken for a Republican attack ad. It was aired multiple times throughout the show. (UPDATE: Fox News later issued a statement disavowing the ad and attributing it to an associate producer. See the statement below.)
    Some media critics were outraged by the video. The Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik denounced it, calling it reminiscent of "1930s propaganda":

    As the guy who challenged the Obama administration two years when it tried to deny Fox News access to interviews and other opportunities offered to the media on the grounds that Fox was not a legitimate news operation, I have to tell you even I am shocked by how blatantly Fox is throwing off any pretense of being a journalistic entity with videos like this. Don't be fooled by Bret Baier's Boy Scout smile or all the talk about how some shows are news and some are opinion on the channel. Any news organization that puts up this kind of video is rotten to the core.

  2. In related news........today, scientists have discovered that fire is hot.
     
  3. Fair enuf. msnbc clearly works for the dems, but they don't pretend that they don't is probably your point.
     
  4. i watch msnbc once a month or so but i think while they clearly point left they just present news with a left slant.
    fox news actively works to misinform. you will notice that fox withdrew the video so even they knew it was over the top.


    Study Finds Fox News Viewers Least Informed Of All Viewers
    Another study has concluded that people who only watch Fox News are less informed than all other news consumers.

    Researchers at Fairleigh Dickinson University updated a study they had conducted in late 2011. That study only sampled respondents from New Jersey, where the university is located. This time, the researchers conducted a nationwide poll.

    Left slant? Dude, get a fucking grip. Yes Fox news shills for the right. But MSNBC goes beyond shilling. Have you watched Sharpton, Maddow, Matthews? Come on dude. You just lost all credibility here. Not that you ever had any.

    Bullshit. Nothing in cable news "goes beyond shilling", you just don't like it when the other side does what your side has been doing full-bore from Day One.

    Dude, you just lost all credibility here. Not that you ever had any.

    Fox "News" viewers are the least informed in America. It's been documented and proven -- repeatedly. So shut your eyes tight, stick your fingers in your ears and go LALALALALALALA... all day long. It's all you got. :D

    If you could point to an MSNBC video comparable to what Fox produced, you'd have a point. But you can't do that.
