“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.
i just Googled "misquoted by cnn" and came up with this= it happens. i think you could do a search for "misquoted by (insert name of any news org.)" and come up with enough reading to keep you busy all day. you can call it "lies" or whatever you like but probly most often the reporter is being sloppy, lazy or using 2nd hand info. i think it best to research anything that may be important to you rather than rely on a "talking head" from any of the news programs. i watch MSNBC, CNN , FOX, LINK(not news, but related info) as well as the networks and i take it all in with a grain of salt.
let's start an organization called "Remove the Division", to make the two major parties start working for "US" again, rather keeping "US" at each others throats all the time. i know= not as much fun
Hmmmm.... Fox seem to make record number of these mistakes and all in the same political direction. If you add in the fact that Roger Ailes has publicly said that the idea is to propagandize to those who are not bright enough to realize or care, and you should be somewhat worried. I predict quite a few people will want to make this about other news channels, though.
I'm sure the news show you watch never exaggerate nor manipulate peoples statements. Thanks for pointing out that Fox is the only one doing so
Well some people (namely Gr8ytHunter) tend to miss things like that. They aint very observant
Not only does the story not explain what misinformation Franken claims but offers nothing in rebuttal...

Tous pour un, un pour tous
Fox Nation is the most confusing/hilarious site on the internet. I'm not sure if the joke is on me, because it might be some sock puppet site, run by filthy Berkeley liberals or something. Have you ever taken the time to peruse that site? It's fascinating. But the best/worst part of all is the comments under each story. That's where you really get a feel for what regular Americans think about things. I make it a point to visit Fox Nation daily and read the comments. it's equal parts hilarious and sad.
I haven't been there.
LOL...I must've missed all those recent threads you surely must have started when NBC, ABC, CNN and Newsweek/Daily Beast purposefully edited audio, video and 911 transcripts to change context.
It only seems that way because your head is stuck in the sand when others do it. Amazing what one notices when they look for these types of things, no?
"It should also be noted that Doocy, while admitting his misstatement on television, has yet to address his equally false statements he made while co-hosting on Brian Kilmeade's Fox News Radio."
I looked, and looked, and looked to even see if the Examiner pointed out that NBC never even admitted on television to having edited audio in the Trayvon case. Couldn't find it, though. Perhaps you can point me to that article.
Instead, they issued a press release to announce their mistake and never even named the producer who was allegedly fired for the 'mistake'.
Typical Lib slant, though. The guy issues an apology on television, then gets called out for it because he didn't issue another apology on radio.
I already expressed my discomfort with the media take on the Trayvon case. I notice that you have been very vocal in those matters but strangely quiet on this? Even excessively forgiving. How does the sand taste down there?
THEN YOU HAVEN'T BEEN LOOKING VERY HARD. All ya gotta do is type in NBC fires into google.
And they fired the producer who did it!
Amazing what you can find without sand in your eyes.

New York --
NBC News has fired a producer for editing a recording of George Zimmerman's call to police the night he shot Trayvon Martin, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.
The identity of the producer was not disclosed. The dismissal followed an internal investigation that led to NBC apologizing for having aired the misleading audio.
The person with knowledge of the firing spoke on the condition of anonymity. An NBC spokeswoman declined to comment.
NBC's "Today" show first aired the edited version of Zimmerman's call on March 27. The recording that viewers heard was trimmed to suggest that Zimmerman volunteered to police, with no prompting, that Martin was black: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."
But the portion of the tape that was deleted had the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person who had raised his suspicion was "black, white or Hispanic," to which Zimmerman responded, "He looks black."
Later that night of Feb. 26, the 17-year-old Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla. Though Martin was unarmed, Zimmerman told police he fired in self-defense after Martin attacked him.
Questions subsequently have arisen over whether Zimmerman was racially profiling the teen, a theory the edited version of the tape seemed to support.
On Tuesday, NBC said its investigation turned up "an error made in the production process that we deeply regret." It promised that "necessary steps" would be taken "to prevent this from happening in the future" and apologized to viewers.

NOW ABOUT FOX'S FIRING DOOCEY......

Trayvon was kicked outta school fo crack ..then he got blasted ...
Feelings get hurt, best not to have any!
Reading comprehension, anyone?
brdcstr: "I looked, and looked, and looked to even see if the Examiner pointed out that NBC never even admitted **on television** to having edited audio in the Trayvon case."
LOL @ Stank for believing NBC fired the producer...because they said they did.
Care to share with us the name of that producer?
There's a reason they continually refuse to release that persons name when asked.
swr, Stank..care to chime in on this one since you're now apparently in the business of pointing out hypocrisy?
TV Corrects Itself, Just Not on the Air
After broadcasting an audio clip on the “Today” show about George Zimmerman last month that hit the trifecta of being misleading, incendiary and dead-bang wrong, NBC News management took serious action: it fired the producer in charge and issued a statement apologizing for making it appear as if Mr. Zimmerman had made overtly racist statements.
The only thing NBC didn’t do was correct the report on the “Today” show.
What is it with television news and corrections? When the rest of the journalism world gets something wrong, they generally correct themselves. But network news acts as if an on-air admission of error might cause a meteor to land on the noggin of one of its precious talking heads. NBC used all of the powers at its disposal to amend the mistake, except the high-visibility airtime where the bad clip ran in the first place...
Search the worldre looking for.
Newspapers run corrections all the time, but a mistake on television news, like NBC’s misleading editing of an audio clip by George Zimmerman, is often followed by silence.
FOX is aginst OBAMA..oh nooooo !!!
So you've gone from 'discomfort' when NBC, ABC, CNN, and Newsweek purposefully alter words to change context, to utter disdain when a host from Fox does the same thing?
Humor us with more of this selective outrage.
And indeed they were chided just this morning on CNN for exactly that. A point they conceded. But LOL at you since you said you count find proof of them apologizing. They didn't do it on the air. BUT THEY DID DO IT! And it was more than amply noted BY OTHER NETWORKS AT THE TIME.
SO IT WAS ON THE AIR.
Doocey has not apologized for repeating his nonsense on other mediums.
BESIDES News Corp has more than enough problems on it menu that are bigger then NBC's.
Speaking before an inquiry on Wednesday, the News Corporation chief, Rupert Murdoch, sought to deflect suggestions that he wielded influence with British officials to further his corporate interests.
Global media tycoon Rupert Murdoch spent hours Wednesday downplaying his political influence, even as British Prime Minister David Cameron said politicians in his country had been too close to
Stank, are you stoned...or stuck on stoopid?
brdcstr; "Instead, they ***issued a press release to announce their mistake*** and never even named the producer who was allegedly fired for the 'mistake'."
Keep tryin', though. Going to the mat to defend them for setting the standard is getting comical.
What next....trotting out Dan Rather for a lesson on ethics in journalism?
nah if I was stooped I'd be named brdcastr 1
Your statement proves nothing. They did apologize. The apology was broadcast on more than enough networks and press outlets to be seen. The fact that you don't know his name is irrelevant.
Original. Did you think of that one all by yourself?
My statement proves that you're a hypocritical apologist who seems quite accepting of double standards.
Thank you. That deflection makes Doocy's lie fine.
Thank you for reinforcing ca4usc point. Lying is acceptable to conservatives.
This reminds me of a great joke by Kimmel this weekend. The difference between the people that listen to Limbaugh and Maher is that the people that listen to Maher know that he is an asshole. It appears by ca4usc and your posts that the people that listen that listen to Fox do not realize that lying by a supposed news organization for propaganda purposes is not good.
Another conservative defending Fox's lies with deflection. Do you deflect when other news stations post incorrect stuff or do you cackle like most conservatives about the MSM? Why do you ignore that these other stations fire their liars, but Fox encourages dishonesty to help the GOP?
Typical brdcstr post. "Defense by deflection. This makes Fox's lie okay? How is this even remotely relevant to this thread?
Other than that, what evidence would there be? Do you have evidence that they did not? Other than faith based conservatism, what evidence is there that they did not fire the producer as they claim? If they had not, I am sure that Fox would have reported it as another slam against the MSM. Fox's silence on the matter is also strong evidence.
You keep claiming to be so business savvy. For fear of legal action, no business discusses employee decisions by name. In fact, claiming that they fired someone for this is extra ordinary, probably to protect their reputation. Stating a name is not likely under any circumstace. Can you name one Fox employee fired for making false statements?
