 Has Fox Gone Too Far? - Implies Obama Caused Suicde
Has Fox Gone Too Far? - Implies Obama Caused Suicde
College student commits suicide. Coincidentally it happen at the same time that Obama was making his budget speak. Fox reports the story with a not-very-subtle implication that Obama was the cause of the suicide. picked by 2manyusernames 5 months ago

I get infuriated how the liberals of the internet and Plime always attack Fox without being able to see the only difference between Fox and their news source is who the bias is against.

However this article really is in very bad taste. Now the author and the author's editor is to blame not the entire Fox network - unless Fox comes out and acknowledges that this article was way past good taste and was no where close to professional journalism.

I agree. But the network is responsible for the behavior of their employees. That ass Glen Beck would've been fired along time ago if Fox DID give a damn about their employee behavior. Instead, they keep him around to getting higher ratings.

Left and right have these extremes, but it seem to me that the right has more of their extremes in the limelight, which is very bad for the US.

When Obama's speech went on on Fox News, and he got to the part to say that "Around two-thirds of our budget is spent on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and national security. "
the highlights on the bottom of the screen said:
Around two-thirds of our budget is spent on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

In case someone thinks dishonest handling of footage is something new, here is an other one:

Let me get this straight.

While Obama is delivering a speach at a university, a student at that university commits suicide on campus?
Fox news then report on it saying:
“George Washington University students in Washington, D.C. learned of a tragic coincidence of timing on their campus Wednesday. As President Obama delivered a speech on deficit reduction in the Jack Morton Auditorium, university officials were learning one of their students had committed suicide in his dorm room across campus.

Fox News has learned that the male student may have been a junior at the school and was described as solitary. He rarely left his dorm room, according to a source.”

I think the people blaming Fox for bias in this case should step back and reconsider.

Probably it happened before the speech; they have found the body during the speech. The connection is imaginary. Anyways FOX has pulled already the "GWU Suicide Tragically Coincides with Obama Speech," article.
Still I wonder what's next. "While Obama delivered the 45 minutes long speech, about 1.43 children died from hunger in Africa. (yep, that is 16,000 a year)"
We can measure lots of things in Obama speech. The speed limit in my neighborhood is 40 miles per Obama speech. The LightObamaSpeech (LOS) is the distance the light can take during the Obama speech. It is about 774,000,000 km.
Uranus is in 3.9 Light Obama Speech distance from the Sun.

I think there is a point when after all the tasteless, slanderous, and made-up things fox news pumps out, it can no longer be blamed on the "talent". They are to fault for letting them put this type of "news" out time and time again. They are grasping at straws with most stories. I don't have a particular news source i watch or read to i say it without bias. Fox needs to do something about the company's standards, actually its way past that point. Oh well.

Fox News is notorious for blaming the Democrats for every ill of society. They rarely say that directly, but regularly make implications and innuendos that paint liberals, President Obama, Democrats, atheists, gays, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, hippies, and/or unions are the root of all evil.

Case in point: during the Wisconsin union protests, they aired footage of "union thug violence" from California to play it up as if it was happening in Wisconsin.

If I've read it correctly, Fox removed the offending article. You are seeing it after they covered their butt.
