Fox Host Tries To Dismiss "Fox News Lies" Chants

Following a live report from New York City's Zuccotti Park in which protesters chanted "Fox News lies," Fox Business host Gerri Willis claimed that Fox is simply "trying to cover the story just like everybody else." However, Fox hosts and contributors have pushed lies, smears, and attacks about the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Fox Business Host "Angry" At "Fox News Lies" Chants From Occupy Wall Street

Willis: "I Have No Idea What They're Talking About." After airing a live report from Fox Business reporter Adam Shapiro during which a crowd at Zuccotti Park chanted "Fox News lies," Willis responded: "I have no idea what they're talking about. We're trying to cover the story just like everybody else there." She continued: "Every time I hear a crowd chant that, I get really, really angry, because Fox News -- just like everybody else -- is trying to cover the story." Fox Business, The Willis Report, 11/15/11

1. Evidently at least some of them believe their own bullshit.

5. They really do. Some smart people too.
A friend of a friend in a distant town works for a local FOX. Drank the Kool-aide.

Ten minutes with me ..., he sees through it, and now hopes to retire soon.

3. Proof of Fox "New" lying righ there ...
1. "I Have No Idea What They're Talking About."

2. "Every time I hear a crowd chant that" ... um, isn't that saying that you've heard it before? You don't know what they're talking about?

6. "I don't know what they're talking about"
Because my paycheck depends on me not knowing what someone is talking about when they say Fox News lies. And I like my paycheck very, very much.

7. Then they cut back to the studio
and proceed to lie about what has happened.
