It’s never been a secret that Fox has been and remains at the top of irresponsible and inaccurate journalism. They play the game of simply reporting the news, but anyone with eyes and ears can see that it is news with a slant…a conservative slant. But, now they’ve taken it a bit too far by blatantly campaigning for the GOP.
Fox’s top idiots on the network’s Fox & Friends thought they’d take a little walk down memory lane into President Obama’s campaign by putting together a medley of his campaign speeches and his campaign slogan of Hope and Change. But what was supposed to be a retrospective was a blatantly conservative anti-Obama campaign ad that features foreboding music, homeless people on the street and a family counting change at the dining room table.
The ad depicts him as the food stamp president and attempts to convince viewers that food and gas prices went through the roof, and unemployment and the deficit are out of control allllll because he came into office with lies of Hope and Change. They couldn’t wait to slap each other on the back for the ad too. They gave thanks to the producer that worked on the video for them because it was a Fox & Friends presentation.
But other conservative journalists have already lambasted the network for its partisan antics before they could finish a round of applause for themselves. The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik told the Huffington Post:
“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.”
The scariest thing about the network’s propaganda is that viewers are absorbing it at an alarming rate. CNN hit a 20-year low in May with 389,000 primetime viewers, but Fox…Fox News?! They reeled in 1,692,000 viewers. You’ll see just how scared you need to be when you check out the ad.
