Another Outragous Distortion by Fox News. This Time: Taking a Statement out of Context.

    The Associated Press reported that:

    “Despite reservations, the Obama administration is relieved that Morsi won without unleashing a new wave of violence and unrest, and without provoking a military coup.”

    As they usually do, Fox Cable News left out the first and third part of this statement and expressed outrage that the Obama administration should be “relieved” that the Brotherhood candidate won. But of course that isn’t what the administration told AP. They were relieved that there wasn’t violence or a military coup. (One suspects Fox and its guests were rooting for the military coup.)

    Fox News has a far right agenda and once they put out these borderline lies, they are snatched up by their audience as fact. When Fox get's called on it, they may 'whisper' an apology so it won't be very obvious, this is how they've accomplished their goal of distortion of facts and can get away with it.

    Once the lie is out there, the damage is done and little can be done to take it back. Fox gets paid well to do this and they are winning the media competition this way.

    What's that saying ?? "A well stated and well timed lie, often repeated, will always be be believed over the truth" This method is working very well, just look at the gay, elderly and poor people who vote republican, Like the TBaggers they're votes are being bought by billionaires and large money'd interests who are laughing all the way to the bank about getting duped people to vote their way as apposed to voting for their own interests.
