Further proof that Fox News isn't a real news organization.

Good comedy always has a bit of truth to it.

But it sounds like something he would do, so it's okay to report it even if it isn't actually true.

When you want something to be true sooooooo bad, you'll find a way to believe it. Same thing as UFO's angels, etc. Believe hard enough, and it'll come true.

I work for a daytime talk show and we often show little YouTube clips. We'll see it on one of our radio station websites or on Facebook but when I check them they are often from months or years earlier, so they aren't really timely and worth talking about. It takes about 5 seconds to do the most basic of research, which of course Fox did not bother with before rushing to the air to scold the president.

The worst part is, I doubt anyone will get fired or even reprimanded for a basic failure of journalism. Because it's no longer about being factually correct. It's about tearing someone down they don't like no matter the cost or method.

Fox knows exactly what they're doing. This story will be added to the never ending narrative of imagined atrocities bandied abut on free republic and the glenn beck and alex jones' message boards. Doesn't matter in the slightest if it's true, the faithful will repeat it until it's common "knowledge". The fact that the lamestream drive-thru happy meal media never reported it will just be further confirmation of it's validity.
