Fox News again accused of airing misleading video 
For the second time in just over a week, Fox News is coming under fire for misusing old news footage. The latest flap is leading some people to charge that the cable news network is intentionally misleading its audience, while Fox claims a "production error."

Wednesday's incident occurred when Fox News host Gregg Jarrett mentioned that a Sarah Palin appearance and book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan had a massive turnout. As footage rolled of a smiling and waving Palin amidst a throng of fans, Jarrett noted that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate is "continuing to draw huge crowds while she's promoting her brand-new book,'' adding that the images being shown were "some of the pictures just coming in to us....

During the clip, host Sean Hannity marveled over the large turnout for a Washington, DC protest. The Daily Show later pointed out that there seemed to be some inconsistencies with the video shown on Hannity's show, namely that the atmospheric conditions seemed to vary from shot to shot. Hannity later apologized on the air for what he called "an inadvertent mistake..."

Sounds like Fox has the same theory about the news.

Fox is not news, its an opinion show. I know people who only get their "news" from fox and its scary how uneducated, uninformed, and bat sh** crazy they are.

At this point, nothing surprising me anymore about any misleading information, lies, or subliminal messages that Fox News provides.  Kind of like this:

Im a republican but I hate Fox News. It is biased insanely biased.You have to be a idiot to take Fox at face value. I remeber watching Fox when the war started and they were talking about reports that Iraq using chemical weapons on american soldiers. Also they kept talking about Syria through out the whole thing like they were allying with Iraq.
Personally I get my news from CNN best news network with the least amount of biased news.
