    Obama Video on Fox News Criticized as Attack Ad

    5/31/12

    The Fox News Channel came under withering criticism on Wednesday for a four-minute video broadcast on its morning show “Fox & Friends” that portrayed President Obama’s tenure as a series of failed promises.

    The video had most of the hallmarks of a campaign attack ad, except that it was produced and paid for by a news network rather than a candidate or a political action committee.

    A blogger on the conservative Web site Hot Air wrote of the video on Wednesday afternoon, “It makes a pretty powerful argument against another four years of Barack Obama, but that shouldn’t be the job of news-reporting organizations, even when we like the message.”

    David Zurawik, a television critic for The Baltimore Sun, wrote, “Even I am shocked by how blatantly Fox is throwing off any pretense of being a journalistic entity with videos like this.”

    If there was any doubt that the FOXNEWS was simply just the public arm of the GOP, then that's been shattered to pieces with this vitriolic ad.

    Way to good FOX, that was so truthy....NOT!!! :lol:

    Has anyone here ever seen tho opinion shows on MSNBC?

    Andrea Mitchell. Alex Wagner. Dylan Rattigan. Martin Bashir. Al Sharpton. Chris Matthews. Ed Schultz. Lawrence O'Donnell. Rachel Maddow. Savannah Guthrie.

    None stop, virulent, vitriolic, hateful, factless, lying tirade following the MSNBC attempted equivalent to "FOX and Friends", the first Republican bashing show of the day, hosted by a dumb Polack and a RINO, and not a single conservative voice since they fired the only rational voice, Pat Buchanan.

    Talking about the public arm of a political party! FOX is the lone soldier on one side, while MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, WAPO, NYT and similar sewer-dwelling Obama-lovers bring out and fire their anti-Republican weapons of racist garbage hour after hour, day after day.

    MSNBC only stops on weekends, airing shows about the future residences of their favorite Democrats.

    MSNBC is ten times worse than Fox News when it comes to spinning news.

    MSNBC is full of hateful, idiotic, brainwashed hosts, like Chris Hayes, who have no filter.

    O'Reilly, Hannity, and van Susteren would wipe the floor with the MSNBC wackos in a debate or conversation

    You know you've beat a RWer to death when their only response is to change the subject.

    I ask again, for the umpteenth time on this board...please list all the "straight news" programs that are on the FOXNEWS channel.

    Thanks in advance.

    Neither fox news or MSNBC are "news." In the best case they are informed commentary and opinion. At their worst they are bold faced lies. MSNBC will admit to when it's stories are blatantly false, where fox tends to ignore any claims they used false footage or claimed outrageous things, but both are entertainment and should not be used for any fair or balanced reporting of the news. Trying to defend one over the other is stupid, and using either for your news shows you have no interest in the truth. I personally prefer my fake and twisted news parody to come from a legitimate entertainment network like comedy central. At least Stewart and Colbert are honest about the fact they are make believe news commentary.

    I could understand people confusing MSNBC with real news as they play to a much more intelligent crowd, as fox tends to employ emotional radicals who make no attempt at things like facts. Compared to a racheal maddow a Bill O is really a loud mouthed blowhard who cannot form an argument over a elementary school level. I am treally shocked the guy doesn't just doesn't stick hisw fingers in his ears and go nanny nanny poo poo, but he would not want to take rush's job. When you spend years with glen Beck as a news person crying about commies just the idea you can even claim to be news or fair without your head exploding is a statement on the deceptiveness of it's supporters and it's people.

    As a fun game you can play with these networks is to try and match up some of their news stories with the actual events. One of the greatest things to do this with is another Rupert news publication called the NY post. I swear there are days i cannot figure out what the post is talking about.

    The nice things about both of these networks is they let you live in a false reality where your opinion is always right no matter how off base and insane it actually is. News is supposed to report and let you decide. these networks distort so you do not have to think. No it is not a defense to say the guy on the other side fails at thinking so you are going to be an ignorant twit too.

    CBS set the standard when it offered forged documents to try to influence a presidential election. Everything else is bull sh-t.
