Too bad lying on broadcast news isn’t a felony in America

It is in Canada. If it were also true in the U.S., there would be that LOOOOONG line of Fox News reporters, editors, and executives cooling their heels in prison.

Watch the following video:

Can you see those awful, ugly union protesters picking fights and being generally rowdy? Looks like a rowdy crowd.

In an effort to “prove” that the unions are the bad guys, however, Faux News badly miscalculated the cognitive abilities of the average American. Did you see it?

Watch it again. Please note the abundance of the rare Wisconsin tropical palm trees around the state capitol in Madison.

Yepper. You’re watching a video segment from a protest in Sacramento that Faux News inserted to “prove” that the wingnut wackadoo segment of American politics are the good guys, and that union workers are “evil” and “communist” and “they eat babies”. It’s whatcha call youse “propaganda”. We all know about that, right?

Did Faux News and that bastard Murdoch really think they could get away with this? And have they apologized for this incredible blunder? (Probably, and no.)

Call your local cable company and ask them to remove Fox News from their lineup. Call News Corporation and tell ‘em to go to hell.
