    After all the complaining about the "liberal media" and their "creative editing" and their "outright lying," from the conservatives here on the board, I certainly hope to hear equal condemnation for the conservatively biased news sources, as well.

    You can start with FOX who's doubled down in the last 24 hours.

    Yesterday they aired a bit about unemployment and used a pretty graphic spread to peove how much worse things have gotten in the last 4 years....only problem is, they compared the official unemployment figure in 2009 with the so-called "real" unemployment figure in 2012.

    Fox News To Issue Correction For Misleading 'Fox & Friends' Graphic On Unemployment

    Today they attempted to excuse Mitt Romney's untimely remaks about the events in Libya by saying that he was unaware that any deaths had occurred in Libya when he made his statement condemning Obama and The White House.

    This was, of course, in spite of the fact that Romney's statement referenced the deaths.

    Romney's statement:

    Fox version:

    MARY KATHARINE HAM: It should be stated the statement he put out last night about the Cairo embassy's truly appalling statements that somehow sort of said, well this anti-Islam movie, we are apologizing for that, and for Americans sort of exercising their first amendment rights, putting that statement out was pretty appalling. He responded to that before we had heard anything about anybody being killed in Benghazi. And I believe that is the timeline.

    JON SCOTT: Yeah. Now that is the statement that was put out by the State Department, an arm of the administration. And that is what Governor Romney then criticized saying, look, our embassies are under attack. It later turns out four of our people were killed. And the United States is apologizing. Juan, was that inappropriate?

    JUAN WILLIAMS: Well I don't, first of all, I think the death took place later

    The dumbest people on Earth work for FOX news. The dumbest viewers on Earth use them as a 'source' for any factual information.

    Their demographic will do exactly 4 things in the very near future

    1. get older
    2. be less informed
    3. get angrier
    4. die

    They will not develop any new viewership, and eventully will be EXACTLY like Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair.

    The Irony.

    Meanwhile the young lambs who vote for Obozo are facing unemployment rates over 15%.

    The Topic was unemployment, and a Fox graphic, that has correct information presented in an incomplete manner mixing the U3 & U6 figures.

    I beg to differ. The topic is not about unemployment - it is about Fox lying about unemployment - and it is about Fox lying about the Libya timeline.

    The original post clearly states that it is about news sources lying and presenting false information.

    If you want to start a thread about unemployment in the youth population, go right ahead - but not here, please. Here is becomes nothing more than a deliberate and pathetic attempt to divert attention from the fact that Fox News lies.

    And that graph they presented is far more than something with correct information presented in an incomplete manner mixing the U3 & U6 figures.

    It is an outright lie.

    I don't know....do the dems bill themselves as a "fair and balanced" news source?

    Equalled only by you [sic] own disregard for the rules and disrespect for the owner of the site whom you're supposed to be representing.
