Fox News Lies: The Mike Tobin Attack

Quote
Fox News has reported that Mike Tobin was "attacked," "punched," "hit," and "battered," yet has not released any footage of the attack despite the fact it occurred during filming. This is because it didn't happen. How do I know? Because this is the video I took of the incident.

TT, I didn't know you were such a radical.... glad you have your eyes open.  We need more like you.

I read recently that Fox can't go to Canada currently as there are laws against the news media lying there that did not get repealed.  Don't remember where at this time.

I still don't believe they have western media there that does not lie.

Of course FOX nooze has already had its ability to lie upheald in Federal court

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Akre

Jane Akre and Steve Wilson who refused to lie about the controversial Monsanto dairy drug BST were fired

the Federal appeals court sided with WTVT saying, in effect, that the TV station did not have to tell the truth and could lie with impunity--- not even whistle blower laws would protect people from wrongful discharge for refusing to report falsehoods

Is this a great country or what ?

inconclusive. 

Fox is the only major media outlet willing to speak out against the liberal bias in the media.  It's one of my news sources and will continue to be.

Why do I have the feeling that this sort of thing has

I rely on the people I work with and people I shop with for my news, they are just as accurate and reliable. I heard this morning at the walmarts that gas was gona be 17 dollars a gallon by Thursday.  lol

Regarding Fox "News":
Quote
Fox argued from the first, and failed on three separate occasions, in front of three different judges, to have the case tossed out on the grounds there is no hard, fast, and written rule against deliberate distortion of the news...The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves.
