Lunatic Lies

Oh, those wacky newshounds (another fine product of the Outfoxed syndicate). It's hard to know what to ridicule more, their ignorance or their dishonesty. The latest entry from Donna makes that decision even tougher.

She is yelping about this morning's Fox & Friends, who discussed talk-show host Bill Cunningham and John McCain's subsequent apology:

They found time to talk about a radical right wing radio host, Bill Cunningham, who was supposed to warm up the crowd for McCain. He did it by calling him Barack 'Hussein' Obama at least three times. Maybe what came next wasn't what the F & F crew expected.... Cunningham was ranting and raving about how McCain should be thanking him and not apologizing for him so he was going to change his vote. Not McCain, Hillary Clinton, "just like Ann Coulter" he said.
Not what the "F&F crew expected"? Cunningham said that yesterday. He wasn't there this morning. There is no "not what they expected" involved in playing a soundbite from the day before.
Then they asked another right wing radio host, Mancow on, not to speak about Bill Cunningham, no, he was on to speak about Nanny cams...
Is this the same Mancow that, according to the biased bassets, strays from the "party line" so much that he "may never be seen on Fox news again"? (That was February 2006, by the way!) That Mancow?

More to the point, how could Fox & Friends "ask another right wing radio host" on? You can't have "another" if you didn't have one in the first place, and as we have already noted, Cunningham wasn't there. Donna fudging the facts? Misleading her credulous readers? Say it isn't so!
They also had an unfair and unbalanced report by not having a Democrat on to give his/her opinions on what this did or didn't do for John McCain.
Worse than fudging facts, this is Another Hound Lie. What about Juan Williams, who is certainly a liberal and supports Democrats? He opined on the McCain controversy this morning on Fox & Friends. Why did Donna leave that out? But wait, there's more! Keli Goff, who worked on Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign and is now an author and pundit, also appeared on F&F this morning, and one of the issues she discussed? Yup, the McCain/Cunningham controversy.

This stuff is not difficult to document. Millions of people saw it with their own eyes, live, on FNC this morning. Yet Donna and the newspoodles lie about it anyhow and think that, maybe this time, they'll get away with it. Insanity defined.

Fox Fan
"...Donna and the newspoodles lie about it anyhow and think that, maybe this time, they'll get away with it."
Unfortunately for those who get their "news" from the NH, the newspoodles do get away with it all too often. It would take a team of people to cross-check all of the slanders and lies that stream from their soiled paws. 
I wonder if the California "Healthy Pets Act" applies to the mutt writers? The world could only be so lucky...

great job johnny, but I have to agree with FoxFan, they keep doing it because they know they're going to get away with it. their regulars either don't watch fox or don't care if the truth is fudged a bit to make fox look bad.
