Thanks to the peeps over at SpinnWebe, we have yet another example of Fox “Faux” News’ Right Wing bias and general craptasticness.
See for yourself:
April 1, speaking about the current conflict between the Senate and the President over war funding, Barack Obama says this (from USA Today):
“I think that nobody wants to play chicken with our troops on the ground,” said Obama. “I do think a majority of the Senate has now expressed the belief that we need to change course in Iraq.”
Yesterday, this graphic comes up on Fox:
Does anyone else want to vomit with anger?
Huge props to SpinnWebe for catching this. It just goes to show you that Fox News cannot be trusted to follow a story with any amount of credibility or honesty. “Fair and Balanced” indeed. There should be some sort of regulatory service for news outlets that could somehow shame or take disciplinary action against media moguls like Fox News. Of course, free speech applies to these fuckers just like it applies to me, but fuckin A this shit is getting ridiculous.
People trust news outlets to give them the truth, even though they shouldn’t, and that trust is being abused to the extreme. Maybe Jon Stewart could get rid of Fox News alltogether, he did it for “Crossfire”. Man I love that clip: CLICKY. Anyway, we’re probably just SOL and JWF as far as getting rid of Fox News all-together.
With Rupert Murdoch looking into buying the Wall Street Journal, this only makes me more averse to following the main stream media. Not that I ever put much credence in them to start with.
In short, fuck those guys!
And GO SpinnWebe GO!!
