Fox News caught red-handed (again) doctoring video

November 18, 2009 5:54 pm ET by Matt Gertz

UPDATE: For photographic proof that one of therallies Fox News presented as being from Palin's book tour actually took place last year on the campaign trail, go here.

As the folks over at Think Progress note, Fox News's Gregg Jarrett today used old stock footage of a McCain-Palin rally from last year to illustrate how Sarah Palin is "continuing to draw huge crowds" during her book tour. He was apparently not tipped off by the McCain campaign "Country First" sign in one of the shots, nor did he wonder why Palin would be using a teleprompter to plug her book.




This is the second time in ten days Fox News has been caught deceptively using video to advance a misleading storyline - and that's just the tip of Fox News' video-doctoring iceberg. Maybe now Howard Kurtz will admit that there's a larger cultural problem with Fox News?

Fox News continues to pander to its base

Post by T on Fri Jan 15, 2010 10:42 pm

On January 13, Fox News' three top-rated programs for 2009 -- The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, and Glenn Beck -- devoted a combined total of less than 7 minutes of coverage to the earthquake in Haiti, instead choosing to air such things as Beck's hour-long interview with Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly's discussion of Comedy Central host Jon Stewart, and Sean Hannity's advocacy for Massachusetts candidate Scott Brown's Senate campaign.

Does Fox News care about the tragedy in Haiti? In a word….NO, because the far right doesn't. Fox News continues to pander to its base (it use to be politicians who did that). This is typical of the far right segment of our country today.
