Fox News Sunday Edits Out Jon Stewart's Criticism Of Fox Exec | Media Matters for America
I hope Johnny boy isn't the one pissing and moaning about this....if so, he shouldn't have gone on the show in the first place.
Hey, that's the argument being used on another thread regarding editing.
Why would this be surprising, or "outrageous"?
They own the network. They can edit the piece any way they see fit. Did it materially change the interview or make it misleading in some way? nope.
Would you guys be singing the same tune if MSNBC snipped out part of a comment by a prominent conservative?
I found it very revealing when Chris Wallace said that they report the other side, which is very different from fair and balanced.
Well, I can't speak for the others in this thread, but I certainly would.
I'm a liberal (not a "classical" one, either) - I just can't get "outraged" at stupid shit like this. FOX is certainly allowed to leave out parts that they don't like - just like I don't get "outraged" when a movie advertisement only quotes the good parts of reviews.
I once watched Obama giving a speech on CNN. In the Speech, he said, "Republicans keep saying I will raise your taxes".
So I channel surfed and happened to end up on Fox. They played the same speech but with a little "edit". The announcer said, "Obama on taxes": I will raise your taxes. They forgot to keep in "Republicans keep saying". On one hand I was very surprised. On the other, I wasn't. Hey, it's "Fox". Foreign owned by an Australian and a Saudi Arabian Prince, the guy who thought those that brought down the WTC were "heroes". Not exactly pro-American. No wonder they work to undermine the government and create "unrest".
