    'Fox And Friends' Anti-Obama Video Could Double As GOP Ad (VIDEO)

    "Fox and Friends" aired a remarkable four-minute video on its Wednesday show.

    The video, which the hosts of the show advertised as taking a "look back" at President Obama's four years in office, could easily be mistaken for a Republican attack ad. It was aired multiple times throughout the show.

    "We decided to take a look back at the president's first term to see if it lived up to hope and change," host Gretchen Carlson asked at one point, introducing the video.

    In the video —which is labeled as a "Fox and Friends Presents" production — viewers see images of Obama talking about jobs contrasted with footage of homeless people. There is dark, foreboding music, and statistics about the unemployment rate, the rise in the number of food stamps, and the national debt, among other things.

    Some media critics were outraged by the video. The Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik denounced it, calling it reminiscent of "1930s propaganda":

    So what? Fox is merely a sign of the utter abandonment of journalistic standards by all the networks and cable outlets. You just hate Fox because of the direction their bias is pointed.

    So your only problem with free speech is when someone says something you don't like. We get it.

    Sure. I couldn't agree more about Fox. Their bias is overt and deep. As are MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CNN, NPR, and every major news outlet I can think of.

    Obamabot...that's original.

    I'm not surprised that you missed the point. Respectable news outlets don't air propaganda.

    Most of the Fox critics real issue with Fox, is that their bias is not the one they favor.
