An all time low for Fox News; al Qaeda of Madison, WI
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 10:05 AM by Botany
An all time low for Fox News ...... splicing in al Qaeda or Taliban fighters with a rocket launcher or a rocket propelled grenade in a "news piece" that they did last March on
the protests in Madison, Wisconsin.

This is a hammer with which we can beat Fox over the head with. How on earth does a picture of Taliban or al Qaeda get accidently get dropped into a report on the good people of
Wisconsin using their 1st amendment rights to peacefully protest against their government.

I am pretty sure that Wisconsin doesn't look like Afghanistan or Iraq

I found this by accident last night when looking at some youtube videos about Wisconsin. This is a perfect example of the propaganda that Fox News does in their day to day business.

A Thanksgiving treat @ 1:41 into the video. (I could not watch the whole video)

If somebody could post a screen capture of that image that would be very nice.

.... because of the IU student that was arrested in Tahrir Square earlier this week.

3. The thing is, Fox is well known for manipulating the news to
suit their agenda using well known methods, truthful, honest or otherwise, to convolute the truth.
They have proved that using Goebbelist propaganda works with the more gullible citizenry.

7. On the bright side, FAUX NEWS has a growing reputation as "News for Dummies".
Their demographic is dying off, and the youthful enlightened population continues to grow in numbers and maturity.

8. FOX is for dummys.

Anyone with a lick of sense knows they spew vitriol and hate, but not much else of "value". In my opinion, the single biggest reason behind the giant gulf between left and right is FOX news.

9. In my opinion, the single biggest reason behind the gian gulf
between left and right is that there is no left left. The Dems and Repukes collaborated openly in the 40s and 50s to smash the Communist Party and its sympathisers. The left has never recovered, although thanks to OWS, reports of its permanent demise may be somewhat premature.
