Maybe the only way to we can make a statement is to boycott the major sponsors of Fox News. Dont use their services or buy their products.

That is a good idea.



Fix the spelling?

About 44 seconds into the video, at the top it says, "2010 footage passed of as the 2011 footage" - it should be "off," not "of." And at the end, about 2:20, you spelled "explanation" incorrectly as "explaination." It's a great video (perhaps the Judge portion wasn't necessary, as someone mentioned,) but it would great if you would correct those two misspellings. Thanks very much.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

You forgot the word "be"

in this phrase, "but it would great if you would correct those two misspellings." ;)

I watched your video...Thanks

I watched your video...Thanks for posting....an excellent piece!
Do you think it could be it's own posting?

Fox News is one big

Fox News is one big propaganda tool. Maneuvers like this prove one thing: Fox News is petrified. In their attempt to be “Fair and Balanced”—which, by the way, I could care less if they were or not, but find the hypocrisy in it laughable—they try to coax the audience into believing what is not so. Did they think their simplistic legerdemain would work? Are they not aware that people, especially in the Paul camp, are impervious to its cunning artifice? Their ruse and duplicity may satisfy the Dupe and the Ninny, but not the acute non-automaton.

Yahoo: Fox News Bias Shown in Ron Paul CPAC Footage Switch?

Ron Paul may be a bit more popular than Fox News would like the public to believe.

Long Island Express reports that Fox News has allegedly used old footage to discredit Congressman Paul's victory at this year's CPAC. After Paul's victory at a straw poll in 2010, a room full of Mitt Romney supporters indeed booed.

A mistake like that can only happen at FOX NEWS and oh yeah, coincidentally they don't support anti-military industrial complex advocates like Dr. Paul.

Fox News Deceptively Switches CPAC Videos, Gets Caught

Ron Paul: Fox News Deceptively Switches CPAC Videos, Gets Caught
February 16, 2011
By Mondoreb

Faux News indeed caught

Fox News joins the rest of the Corporate Mainstream Media with an underhanded switcheroo of 2010′s video of CPAC with that of 2011. “We Report, You Decide” becomes “We’ll spin you like a top, sucker!”


Does anyone find it a bit odd?

Does anyone find it a bit odd that the speaker is wearing the same clothes as he did in 2010? It certainly makes it a little easier for FOX to fake it. I think the speaker was probably in on the Fox deception as well.

Cynthia, A coincidence of course in a long line of coincidences.

I don't see how he had anything to do with what happened at Fox, but after reading this, he sounds like Ron Paul is not one of his favorite people.

More about Mr. Fabrizio.

"In 1996, Fabrizio served as chief pollster and strategist to Bob Dole's Presidential campaign. He also has served over the years as a key advisor to more than a dozen U.S. Senators, scores of U.S. Congressmen and numerous Governors and other statewide elected officials, as well as the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee. Most recently in 2006, he served as pollster and strategist for Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), whose victory in the face of the Democratic tidal wave that swept through the rest of the Minnesota has been heralded in the national media as “one of the very few GOP bright spots nationally in an otherwise dismal election year.”

"Fabrizio’s current and past corporate clients inclued a Who’s Who of Fortune 500 corporations including Visa, Hewlett-Packard, Bank of America, AOL/Time-Warner, QualComm, FedEx, Pfizer, Harrah’s, among others. Fabrizio is recognized by the domestic and international media as a top political pollster, strategist and analyst. He is often found quoted on the front pages of the New York Times, the LA Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post as well as in leading magazines such as U.S. News and World Report, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, Fortune and Time to name a few."

Fox News Caught Smearing Ron Paul
By Alex Moore Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Fox News was caught flagrantly deceiving viewers in a smear on Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

On Superbowl Sunday, Bill O’Reilly asked President Obama what he and the rest of Fox News Channel (or “FNC,” as O’Reilly likes to call it) could do better. “Just give the American people the facts,”

In reality, the only people booing Paul were Fox News themselves—there was no booing of Paul other than the booing they fabricated. Why would they do this? Because Fox News favors a particular type of conservative right-wing lifestyle and candidate, and Ron Paul does not fit the bill.

Recently an ex-employee of Fox News made headlines by calling the network “a propaganda outfit.”

The Fox News smear against Ron Paul goes to show how far the network will go in attacking its own ostensible allies—Paul is a Republican, and a fiscal conservative, after all—in championing its chosen candidates. But also given how blatant this distortion, it also raises the question of how often Fox News engages in this kind of blatant deceit.



We all knew they did this,

We all knew they did this, but FINALLY they get caught. Bout time.

*** Side note Fox Business tends to appreciate Ron Paul a bit more.

Thanks! Here's my comment:

Hello FoxNews:

You need to air the correct video from the 2011 CPAC showing Congressman Ron Paul announced as the winner of the straw poll, not the one of Mitt Romney's crowd booing from last year. We know if wasn't a "mistake" that you dug that up out of archives, but go ahead and apologize anyway, and air the real footage with the wild cheering and standing ovations that greeted the announcement of Congressman Dr. Paul's win for the 2nd year in a row.



thanks but I don't retract my "bastards" comment

That's really an...

... insult to bastards...

Here's an idea. Fox gets its right to broadcast from the FCC. Why don't we file a complaint. A couple of million dollars in fines would teach them a lesson. Any thoughts?

No..the FCC only applies to the airwaves.

You don't need a license to broadcast on cable, satellite, or the internet.

Besides, that would be very anti-libertarian of you to seek government control over the media.

Interesting. Any proof of that?

I'm betting not.

Here are some of their own options for filing complaints on the FCC site:

"Broadcast (TV and Radio), Cable, and Satellite Issues"

"Biased or distorted news stories by the media"

The FCC does do some interefering with

cable, but requiring a license is not one of the interferences. Cable is not considered socialist public property, unlike the broadcast airwaves, as much as you'd like to socialize it. It's certainly not against the law to be biased, distort, or outright lie. We have no Fairness Doctrine. The press gets very extreme Constitutional protections in this country. Anyone who wants government to regulate the media is supporting the wrong candidate. Ron Paul is in favor of the 1st amendment. "Congress shall make no law.."

Do you have proof that you need to get a license to send information through private property lines, such as through cable and internet?

Was posted a long time ago

It appears they have a category specifically for things like this.


Main complaint link to get to it on your own:


... anyone ever filed a compliant with the FCC? I can't do it tomorrow, but will give it a go on Friday.

Plano TX

wow, so many people susceptible to conspiracy theory.

Obviously, it was either a mistake or some lone-wolf anti-Ron Paul guy in the editing room did it. To think it was some kind of conspiracy is ridiculous. It would be too obvious and Fox as a channel would know it would be found out. Don't you think they don't know how paranoid Paul supporters are, looking for any little sign of portraying Paul in a bad light? It's not a big deal. From what I understand Fox is apologizing.

How can you simultaneously say RP and Glenn Beck are two of your most favorite people, while Rockwell is one of your least favorite?

Also, if you don't realize that Fox subtly and NOT so subtly influences the political realm for its benefits.... well you're not paying attention. Even the neocons know this to be true.
