Every American Journalist ought to be ASHAMED of themselves

Every American Journalist ought to be
ASHAMED of themselves

FOX News has sullied the good name of American Journalism.  On Sunday before the Super Bowl, controversial Fox News host Bill O'Reilly interviewed President Barack Obama at the White House. They talked about Egypt, healthcare, and taxes, but toward the end of the interview, O'Reilly asked the president, "Does it disturb you that so many people hate you?"

Obama chuckled and fielded the question adroitly, "You know, the truth is that the people—and I'm sure previous presidents would say the same thing, whether it was Bush or Clinton or Reagan or anybody," he said. "The people who dislike you don't know you."
"But they hate you," O'Reilly pushed.

"The folks who hate you, they don't know you. What they hate is whatever fun-house mirror image of you that's out there, and they don't know you," Obama said. "And so, you don't take it personally."

But the question was false!!  The premise of the question, "many people hate you" is unsupported in the REAL world.  Yes there are people out there that hate Obama.  There are people out there that hate me, that hate you, but there ARE not "many people."  It was a loaded question; loaded with FRAUD!!!!!!!!!  It is called begging the question.[1]  There are not so many people that hate our president that it should be a topic for a Super Bowl Interview.  Relatively speaking Mr. Obama's approval rating has been going up not down.   

But that was just the last in a line of I think libelous acts by FOX News.  Media Matters for America, an online watchdog group, published FOX NEWS INSIDER: "Stuff Is Just Made Up" February 10, 2011 7:20 am ET by Eric Boehlert.  In the VERY good article Mr. Boehlert exposes FOX for what they are FRAUDS!!!!!!!!!!!

They don't report the news they make it up to fit their agenda.  And the credible Journalist let them get away with it because they are too lazy to do their jobs.  It is oh so SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
