    Think Progress » Fox News displays old campaign footage to claim Palin is getting ‘huge crowds’ at her book signings.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luNheD4DGr8&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Fox News' misleading Palin crowd shot[/ame]

    Oops?

    Ironically, Sean Hannity is mentioned as the clip is played. And remember, this is suppose to be there "non-commentary" news.

    This stuff just helps out the palin camp. Wouldn't be surprised if murdoch's sig is attached to the chain that drops JS his salary.

    Not really. And it definitely doesn't help Fox News. People are going to be paying attention to their videos even more now to point out lies.

    Sean Hannity always makes me laugh nervously for a very long time.

    Yawn, Fox continues to make this mistake. Either they're doing it on purpose or they're an incompetent news organization. Choose now.

    As for it being valid or not, it's real:

    Fox uses old Palin crowd footage - Michael Calderone - POLITICO.com

    UPDATE: Fox responded to the matter via The Swamp.

    Nice trying to defend Fox though. :eusa_whistle:

    Don't be silly. The FAUX fans are loyal. No dishonesty committed by FAUX is too much.

    Fox is a laser beam aimed at Nationalists so their base audience doesn't give a fuck about accuracy or honesty. All this stuff does is martyr fox and palin. I'm actually surprised some palin freak fan hasn't already responded to the op with "this is evidence palin scares the shit out of liberals!"

    I believe Fox's news like I believe Sammy Sosa didn't lighten his skin color.

    Point is, once a bold faced liar, always a bold faced liar.
