    Just as MSNBC has been recently criticized for airing an edited clip of Mitt Romney, by cutting off his remarks, John Stewart calls out Fox for doing the same thing to President Obama.

    Sean Hannity aired a clip of President Obama speaking in 2011 to juxtapose President's Obama's recent executive order. The attempt was to contrast then Obama saying he cannot do nothing alone regarding the DREAM Act to his signing of the order.

    However, on the Daily Show, Stewart aired the full clip, where President Obama declared that he would do exactly what his executive order did.

    Here's what was left out:

    "Now what we can do is prioritize enforcement, since there's limited enforcement resources, and say, 'We're not going to go chasing after this young man or anybody else who has been acting responsibly and would otherwise qualify for legal status of the Dream act passed.'"

    As southbeach would say, "an extremely unscrupulous organization."

    Has Hannity aired the full clip? (rhetorical question)

    No. But James O'Keefe is using it in his new "gotcha" video. (sarcasm)

    No one with a functioning brain is watching Fox for news. Fox is right wing propaganda and while there is nothing wrong with that, if you pretend that it's really news, you are an idiot.
