    FOX: 'Deliberate misinformation'? - THE WEEK

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman accused Fox News of spreading "deliberate misinformation" about the health-care reform bill and other important issues -- and he made the complaint directly to Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Krugman, appearing with Ailes and others on a ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, said that the bill was actually a Republican plan, first championed by Mitt Romney, but many people don't realize that because Fox News has tried to convince people it was socialism. Ailes said "the American people are not stupid," and if they're confused about the health plan it's because the bill's supporters tried to "hide" elements the public wouldn't like in a 2,000 page bill. Does Fox News try to get at the truth -- or does it intentionally mislead its viewers?

    Do what?

    Some Liberals especially act like their left leaning media isn't biased, it's kind of funny to see.

    But then again, it's the same with some Republicans..

    Actually the thread title ought to be:
    Rightwinger: Deliberate Misinformation.

    We can start with your screen name. You are a rightwinger only in comparison to say Jane Fonda.
    Then there is the putting of a period in the title instead of the question mark in the original.
    Then there is the knowledge that the "deliberate misinformation" was actually just an attack by a partisan hack on a TV show rather than anything substantive.

    But it is a measure of the left's desperation they have to sink to low's like this. Pinning the failed health care bill ont he GOP is really scraping.

    The fight against FOX News will never end as long as there are liberals in this country. So I guess that means the fight will last forever!!!

    It's getting old. REAL OLD!
    Take a look at the number of viewers on any given night.
    There's your answer.

    Did Krugman provide any proof to back up his claim?

    Many people love to be told how to act and what to think.
    One reason why the Republicans and religious go so well together.

    Proof? You're asking for proof from a liberal? WTF is the matter with you?? Obama is the One We've Been Waiting For. If you dont like him you're obviously a racist. No proof is needed. Fox is against Obama. They are obviously not a news organization. So you can say anything about them. There is no proof needed for any of this.
