Ron Paul on FOX ("what year is it?") News Feb 15, 2011

Pretty embarrassing and negligent editing on FOX's part: the 2010 CPAC straw poll results' mixed-response was played as if it were 2011!

Thanks sharpsteve for the quick update.

Who is this ignorant news anchor? Is it that difficult for Fox to find quality journalists to anchor their news programs? I don't get it. If you have scheduled guests on, shouldn't you at least try to be prepared and know something about their positions? All it takes is a quick Google search nowadays, it's not even five minutes of one's time. If someone's too lazy to even use Google, they don't deserve a job in news.

And who needs to be fired for playing the tape of last year's straw poll results as if it was this year's? Can someone find out the email to whatever show this is so we can let them know our opinion of this slanted reporting? It's either incompetence, which I suppose is possible given the intellectual disposition of the reporter, or simply the work of a biased producer.

Fox really likes to skew things. Lately, there were the reports that Cheney was called a "draft dodger" but not a "war criminal", a bunch of opinion hit pieces on the CPAC results and now this. There was a speaker at CPAC saying how Fox News, other than perhaps their opinion shows, was truly fair and balanced. I think not, as this is news, shown on their news programs. It's much like when the results in 2008 Nevada listed Ron Paul in third yet Fox showed Romney, McCain and Huckabee's pictures with percentages. It's blatant and probably deserves lawsuits. Ron Paul really is the elephant in the room and ignoring him won't make him go away.

Ron needs to wake up

and realize that FOX is his enemy. He needs to focus on other networks.
This was a smear from the start and the biggest LIE is this "earmark" crap FOX keeps pushing.

Target local fox affiliates and threaten boycott their advertisers, protest in front of the station. Believe me the other TV stations will cover it. Contact their advertisers.

It is time to start exposing Fox News

In preparation of the 2012 elections. If do not, we do so at our movements peril. We knew they would be at it again and this is proof people. Wait till Paul is really educating at the debates and see how they treat him. I agree with a previous poster about the necessity to reveal this fact to people who consume this tripe. It is imperative that they see how Romney is treated for winning the straw poll or anything else and how we are ALWAYS received by popular data. We should further expose how the media AGAIN talked up Romney over Paul though he did not have the votes and how they are directing the news cycle to favor who they want. They did it with Gulianni, Romney, and McCain. They even did it for Obama.

We need some strong video presentations to go viral on this issue to start sharing with the Republican base who will be voting in 2012 so they are prepared for the propaganda too.

This one sums it up nicely.

This one sums it up nicely. They've been destroying our national discourse for years with lies and one framed story after another. As a journalism major, I recall two classes all those years ago that spent a week or two on framed, preconcieved narratives (propaganda). I'd wager, as "journalists" themselves making the big bucks, they know exactly how to do it too. I just hope when people finally realize what a sleaze pit Fox is, they'll be outraged rather than try to 'rationalize' their BS.

Watch this expose from their MANY former journalists, if you can stand to sit through it all.-


Not just FOX

Outfoxed is great. Have you seen this one?

"Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about "homos," Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon -- all presuming they're off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality."

Wow, that's an outrageous "mistake" that should be corrected on air by Fox. There's a big difference between the 2010 and 2011 results -- in the video this year there's much louder cheering and it's hard to hear booing.

His introduction was a complete lie...

There can be no doubt that Fox News is entirely corrupt!

And willing to lie.

Misrepresenting old footage of CPAC as current CPAC video while interviewing Ron Paul and asking him about his comments on the video and current win is more than propaganda, it amounts to an outright lie.

This is slander.

Can some of you Youtube savi people

Make a video showing the difference between what fox reported and the actual event? I just convinced one person to our cause by showing them the facts maybe it could work for more people.

Ron Paul > Gary Johnson > Crap > Obama

There's a guy over at RPF building a website devoted to doing just that.

There's plenty of material to draw upon - so site content shouldn't be a problem.

Only the acceptance of the truth can defeat systemic evil.

After work I will be emailing

After work I will be emailing this Fox News lie to every other media outlet I can think of that may want to rip fox a new one. URghhh...

I can't believe these jokers introduced this interview with the 2010 CPAC results. What pieces of propaganda work over there. Tools.


Freedom - Peace - Prosperity


Skip to 8:40 of the 2011 poll announcement and you can clearly see that Fox did indeed use the 2010 announcement to set him up in this interview.


Here's a Fox report showing the crowd going wild as well. Ah, Fox.


Take it as a good thing though. They fear us.

Such an easy thing to prove. SOOOOOO slimy.
Those of you who Tweet or Facebook should make this revelation known out there in internet land. Talk about losing even MORE of their credibility!

I am glad he was challenged on earmarks and his position. It allowed him to bring up his views and his concerns, while not getting a softball response from the interviewer. Giving him in my opinion, more credibility.

Did anyone notice the introduction?

I was wondering if anyone noticed the introduction in this interview. I may be wrong, but wasn't that the winner announcement from last years CPAC?

Im pretty sure it was!

Typical spin for FOX news! We should email Fox news to let them know WE are aware of what they are doing, AGAIN. Jerks!

That was last year

I remember it.

Pretty sneaky of them to do that, but would you expect anything less than underhanded techniques from Fox?

I remember from the recent events in Egypt, that once Mubarak "stepped down", the people surrounded the State TV propaganda headquarters, and the people inside were fearful for their lives.

The Egyptian people knew that their Media apparatus had been working against them. I can only hope that the American public someday comes to the same realization.
