How Fox “news” Handles The Truth

It doesn’t!

After trying to win the election by having Mitt Romney blame President Obama for the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi and failing completely, there was one guy who didn’t believe the “story”, and said so yesterday.

Thomas Ricks, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, won the Pulitzer for writing at The Wall Street Journal in 2000. Of course this was before Rupert Murdock acquired the newspaper.

Mr. Ricks doesn’t last a minute and a half on this excuse for a television station.

Funny though!

    Fox Executive Vice President Michael Clemente claimed that Ricks apologized after the interview. Ricks said Clemente was “making it up.”

    “Why are they doing this? Because their MO is that when the facts aren’t on their side, they attack the person,” he said.

    Ricks had had a busy day. Might have affected his choice of words.

    Clemente: Run with that as an apology!!!!!! Yes!

    Fox Executive Vice President.

    Boy, that’s a lofty title for someone who exaggerates to get back at somebody who criticized him in the sandbox when he was five years old.

    Ricks didn’t have the “strength of character” to apologize on the air? Fine Clemente; invite the man back on to get that apology. Have O’ Reilly get all red-faced and scream at him for another minute before cutting his mike off. That should make you feel better.

    What a disgrace to punks.

    Ricks showed real character by not caring whether Fox was ever going to have him back on. If only everybody had that kind of integrity. In other words: what if somebody put on a fake cable news channel and nobody came?

    Maybe Clemente got his start as a right-wing blogger, claiming that people agree with him by trying to twist their words around.

    It’s a lie a minute with ANY republican; literally. I never turn on the Limbaugh program, but every time I have, I’ve had to turn it off within one minute. Why can’t Americans figure out that it’s not worth their time to watch people lying.

    But when it’s a federal supreme court judge that lies, it’s just astounding. Very recently, I saw an interview with justice Scalia on the Charlie Rose program and I had to turn it off because Scalia was just rolling his eyes about how much it pains him when people don’t understand how to use the English language.

    Help me! This is the guy who installed George W. Bush as president. Did he ever say anything about Bush mangling practically every thing he said?

    Thank goodness I don’t have Fox “news”. Just wasting a minute every week adds up.
