More Spin from Fox News Re CPAC: "We made a mistake."

I knew this would be Fox News' excuse...

From Mediaite:

Fox News claims it was completely accidental. Mediaite received the following statementfrom Senior Vice President of News Michael Clemente:

“We made a mistake with some of the video we aired, and plan on issuing a correction on America’s Newsroom tomorrow morning explaining exactly what happened.”

This article gives Fox (cut-&-paste) News way too much slack.

Bill Hemmer Apologizes for Fox News Ron Paul Hoax "It was an honest mistake"

Fox news is a fake!

Evil media always lies, fabricates and distorts news, they belong to their "father of lies" NWO. Boycott them.

Lou is totally faked. No blame on him. No body can resists ten of million dollar salary. He sold everything of his. Country and American people mean nothing to him so don't be mesmerized by his smooth talk! Keep going with RP.

And to think...

...I was ALMOST ready to turn the sound on!

hahaha

Fixed News made a mistake - an 'honest' mistake! hahaha - that is funny. They would never intentionally attack any liberty candidate - of course not. They are patriots - they care about you and me, and everybody on the planet too.

After Hemmer Apologized, You Could Hear Julie Annie And Rummy

Tenth Century FOX : This is a PATTERN, not just an incident

Tenth Century FOX, named 20th Century FOX until 1/1/2000, cannot be trusted.

1) Somebody had to dig, to locate that old clip. 2) FIRST question was about the Booo's. 3) SECOND question was 'earmarks', absolutely irrelevant to the CPAC event.

Hemmer just said (9:27 a.m.)

"It was an honest mistake", "We apologize" and "We hope to have Representative Paul back on soon"

Right, then how come their leading interview question was a reference about the amount of booing seen in the old (purported as current) video? Their first question was based on the video so did they review the video before asking this question or not?

Video? Link?

I'd like to see it.

I saw it as it was broadcast.

It is true. And guessing the two hosts were selected for characteristics OTHER THAN intelligent journalistic integrity, the questions had to be pre-written.

Conspiracy!

Not yet but you can bet Moxy will be

all over this one. Will watch for post.

Yep. Finally caught it.

Really lame.

They apologized.

Wasn't too bad. More than I expected anyway. Was actually expecting even less than that.

Here's my favorite line from the article

"However, it might be hard for Fox News to regain the trust of many ardent supporters of Rep. Paul."

LOL!!!

I don't think their spin will be that effective. They shot themselves in the foot and their is no quick-fix-miracle cure IMO.

Did Fox News ever have the trust of RP supporters?

Billion dollar campaign, trillion dollar bailout, can you tell me what's the definition of a sellout?

No.

I have not seen this correction

I called (212) 301-3000 Fox news headquarters and she just said they were unaware that there would be one.

Ya, they did make a mistake,

Ya, they did make a mistake, and they did not say exactly which one. It was a mistake in thinking we would not notice. That people are easily duped. That no one truly supports RP. This time if they keep marginalizing him, especially so blatantly, they will find themselves with few viewers, and sitting on the ground on top of the branch they cut off.

IF we were to revolt...

I know where and what we should take down first. The MSM.

Lets be honest, if they were really doing their job, we wouldnt be in the position we are in.

hmm, I think they ARE doing

hmm, I think they ARE doing their job, you're just confused about what they define their job as

They need to not only apologize, but air the 2011 footage that

shows the real reaction. Of course it could not have been a mistake, as shown in the comments below.

Wow the RP Matrix style vid

Wow the RP Matrix style vid in the post just before this is by far one of the coolest RP vids I have ever seen from an entertainment point of you. All the talking heads attacking RP, the O Riley character looks hilarious when he gets kicked over the railing and he falls 20 ft to the floor. Hats off to whoever created that video, that was really well done.

I like that comment on that

I like that comment on that site that says "amazing how all of Foxes mistakes seem to push thier agenda further" he said "they must be the luckiest people on earth".

I understand and I might even buy that this was a mistakr by Fox. I only wonder what the odds were of CNN, and MSNBC making the exact same mistake.

I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for

Awesome! I want their apology on vid!

Anyone who knows the history between Fox news and Ron Paul knows this was no accident. Otherwise they have a lot of accidents, but their major accident will be being on the wrong side of history.

Fox News

Edits all of my Commercials....I watch how they do this. They pull video from the archives for my spots..... There is NO WAY this was an accident. You have to search for the file...all digitally logged by date. Come on!!

Why would anyone be surprised

Why would anyone be surprised that their newsroom or video archives are staffed by underpaid, careless employees? I'm not surprised.

EXACTLY -

It's archived footage from a YEAR ago! geezus, i have to look in archives to find something loaded last month!!!

I Thought of That, But

First, I hesitate to sic the government on anyone exercising their right of free speech. Lying isn't illegal in this context.

Second, I don't think the FCC has jurisdiction of cable channels since they don't go over the air. If they do, they shouldn't.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/
