FOX news was caught, surprise, editing and mixing news clips in a fundamentally dishonest way. Why people put up with nonsense is beyond me. What is the role of the media? This sort of dishonesty in reporting is happening constantly. There are so many examples. One was analyzed in detail by Glenn Greenwald recently.
Glenn explains what is happening in the media:
“But the U.S. media’s willingness to mindlessly apply the term “terrorist” in exactly the subjective, self-serving way the U.S. Government dictates — starkly contrasted with their refusal to use the far more objective term “torture” on the ground that the term is in dispute (i.e., disputed by the U.S. Government torturers) — illustrates the establishment media’s principal function: to serve American political power and justify whatever our government does. ”
