Fox "News" has a history of fakery

Remember when they did something similar to make a DC Tea Party event look like it had a larger attendance than it really had?

"Tea party" photo shows huge crowd — at different event

But they apologized, and said it was a mistake. But this shows a pattern of deliberate manipulation.

I attended the 2009 912

I attended the 2009 912 protest, and Faux News definetly lowered the offcial crowd estimates to 400,00 to 600,000 depnding on which idiot you listened to. The actualy crowd size was 1.1 million according to the DC police.

2009 912

I'm not disputing the estimated numbers, I'm saying Fox used a photo that wasn't taken that day, and tried to pass it off as coming from that rally.

"There’s another problem with the photograph: It doesn’t include the National Museum of the American Indian, a building located at the corner of Fourth Street and Independence Avenue that opened on Sept. 14, 2004. (Looking at the photograph, the building should be in the upper right hand corner of the National Mall, next to the Air and Space Museum.) That means the picture was taken before the museum opened exactly five years ago. So clearly the photo doesn’t show the 'tea party' crowd from the Sept. 12 protest."

Thanks Sharpsteve for the post.

This is absolutely unbelievable.

FOX owes Ron Paul an apology Big time. I don't even know if this is LEGAL.

Could there be a case of slander against FOX, who claims to report the truth?

Is there any case here?

Maybe not - but FOX is a major station governed (I would think) by some kind of FCC rules against using old clips as today's news.

Isn't there some truth in reporting laws you have to follow if you are going to bill yourself as a news channel?

I mean perhaps if you were the comedy channel you could get away with this with impunity.

I agree

I think the heat needs to stay on till they are fined or sanctioned in some way.

AS these things tend to go,

AS these things tend to go, RP's own reputation would suffer should a case for slander be brought by him. Certainly we should spread this, and Fox should issue a retraction and an apology. But RP would be better served by not making a big stink about it.
One of Dr. Paul's most attractive qualities, certainly one that left me a very impressed neo-con in transition, was his ability to endure unfair treatment, while not demanding his just due in the process. He is the living embodiment of that old Christian virtue, "turn the other cheek". The abuse he took in the debate process, while maintaining a cheerful demeanor - his steadfast adherence to the truth while being booed - all these make him a giant of a true statesmen. What differentiates the statesman from a mere politician is not just knowledge and intelligence, for these can be found in politicians who lie. A statesman also has a virtue that a politician lacks - he is not influenced by either the bribery of money or stroked ego, nor influenced by a lack of money or an insulted ego.

R_Michael - good reply to my post - I'll repeat it here...

I had speculated on a case for slander against FOX for substituting old footage into a new and current news report.

I wondered if the FCC had some kind of rule against it.

You replied with the following which was well stated...

"AS these things tend to go, RP's own reputation would suffer should a case for slander be brought by him. Certainly we should spread this, and Fox should issue a retraction and an apology. But RP would be better served by not making a big stink about it.

Thank you. And for what it's

Thank you. And for what it's worth, I'd personally love to see Fox News get what they so richly deserve. They will, someday.

FOX Deceives, Swaps CPAC Straw Poll Footage
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19jXxSeH2oQ

This just in. FOX news channel has just been caught in a blatant attempt to distort the perception of the 2011 CPAC Straw Poll results. On the February 15th broadcast of America's Newsroom Fox Reported the results of the win. when they opened the report they played the recording of the 2010 results rather than the actual 2011 recording. A clear difference is seen in the crowd reaction and in the attire worn by Tony Fabrizio who read the results to the audience.

The crowd reaction was remarkably different even though Ron Paul won in both cases. In the 2010 recording you could hear more booing and groaning from the audience [FOX CLIP] Now in the 2011 recording you can hear a truly excited crowd. [CPAC CLIP]

This is a clear attempt to persuade America that Ron Paul is not accepted by the majority even though he truly is.

Fox is no stranger to minimalizing Ron Paul's wins. During the 2008 Presidential Election, Fox ignored their own polling data from text Message polling and online Polls where Ron Paul was the clear winner. This, however, is the first time they have been caught SWAPING footage in an attempt to sway public opinion of a Presidential contender.

The first shot of the 2012 election season has been fired by the spin masters at FOX news against Ron Paul and it is time for you to act now and demand a full retraction, explanation, and apology for the false reporting.

Judge Napolitano one of the only true advocates for Freedom and Liberty at the fox news channel needs to be contacted too. Contact Judge Napolitano and demand that he expose the FOX network. How the Judge reacts to this will be a true test of his allegiance to to Ron Paul.

Contact the judge via email at:

Or on his facebook page @

Do not delay take action now, share this video!

augh, much better video, but Gary, spellcheck! Please!

@50s: "2010 footage passed of as 2011"

@2m18s: "DEMAND FULL
RETRACTION
EXPLAINATION
APOLOGY"

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

That's a really good one showing the difference and contacts.

Just a small note, it would been even better to have included more of the Fox report in question before pointing out the specifics of the misrepresentation, just to put it all in context for someone new to the Fox lie that has not seen the original slander yet.

I emailed them

I think they need to know that we are watching them.

I'm so disgusted

I'm sure this is a prelude of more lowball reporting to come.

I hope Judge Napolitano and Ron Paul saw this. The Judge probably won't say anything because he gets his paycheck there.

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

"The Judge probably won't say anything because . . . "

which is FINE! We NEED him (and Stossel) to stay firmly entrenched in there. He is the most effective educator for the neoconned clueless Fox News crowd.

One way or another there needs to be a new mass uprising of Media outlets that can provide solid information and Journalism and Broadcasting with Integrity..Without it this is David and Goliath..

wow Fox should apologize

We'll be attacked even more as our success explodes -goes with the territory..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

This blatant deception has to end now

They're not even good at it anymore! It's clear that they used old video with the announcer wearing something around his neck. We must not allow the msm to laugh at our champion of freedom anymore. Hire lawers to pursue slander charges. Get private investigators to expose the sick lying anchors who chuckle as they distort the facts. 2008 should have taught us lessons about what shady tactics these traitors will use to discredit the truth and those who tell it. Ron Paul really needs to expose these tactics himself and demand an explanation and apology.

2nd clip ending...

I almost died laughing! Anyone?

Nevermind camera angles and name tags

Just listen to the words:

2011

The winner of the straw poll, this year
(pause for applause)
Congressman
(pause for applause, chanting of Ron Paul starts)
Okay
(pause for applause)
Okay
(pause while the audience quiets down)
Congressman, Congressman Ron Paul gets 30%

The winner of this year's CPAC straw poll
(pause for boos)
is
(very brief pause)
Now
(pause for boos)
Okay

Well
