This seems like perfect fodder for The Daily Show. Jon Stewart and his gang love to skewer Fox News whenever they can. Sometimes it deserved, other times they’re just having fun with it. This time? It looks like Fox News will be very much rip for criticism. Why? The network was caught – again – deceiving their viewers. What did they do this time?
Truth is Contagious is reporting that:
“In a shocking act of mass public deception, Fox News attempted to skew Ron Paul’s 2011 CPAC straw poll win by representing it with footage from the previous year’s CPAC event, at which Mitt Romney supporters had loudly booed the result, another example of the continuing dirty tricks campaign being waged against Paul by the establishment media.”
They have reportedly been creative with their editing before and also by exaggarating the facts to fit their focus. Do you think it’s okay to take liberties with editing or should they stick to the reality of a given situation?
