  • Obama + Foxnew/CNN = You have got to be kidding

    Apparently Obama spent one year in a muslim school when he lived in Indonesia for a year at ages 6 thru 9. Source

    "researchers connected to" Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) disclosed that Obama "spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia." Source

    And of course fox news is standing by its claim. That place is making it harder and harder for me to take seriously as a news station. especially when you give Jon Stewart so much ammo to take you down with, "That is HUGE!" (last nights episode). This really isnt gonna be good for Hilary's side, i was just waiting for the first pile of mud to be flung in this deal. Good thing Hilary doesnt have any thing in her past that would make her look bad.....

    The ABCNews.com article noted that "Obama denied that the story was true, and Clinton denied that she was spreading the story."
    Well duh...does it really matter what school he went to at age 6?

    Looks like he is already being 'type cast' and labled as a 'baddy'.

    I actually have a quote from his protocol droid on the matter:

      This opening volley in the game of negative, anti-campaign journalism was a huge misfire. This is a clear-cut case of a phony website injecting a false story into the mainstream media.

      The NYTimes summarized things in an article yesterday.
      http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/29/us...ewanted=1&_r=2

      None of this is imporatant (though the willingness of FOX to run with this is amusing). If anything, studying the path of the false story is just a reminder of how untrustworthy all journalism has become in the age of information.

        sounds like the same kind of bad reporting that knocked Dan Rather off the hill.

          Did you hear the scandal? Obama is black!

          This is pretty much what FOX is reduced to. They get more and more shameless as time goes by.

            Neg. Fox is reduced to "Hillary OUTS Obama as black!" They can't even deliver the beating without trying to pin the blame on another Democrat.

            I'm astounded they get to keep the word "News" in their name.

                Re: Obama + Foxnew/CNN = You have got to be kidding

                I thought this piece of the times article was particularly hilarious:

                And in an interview, John Moody, a senior vice president at Fox News, said its commentators had erred by citing the Clinton-Obama report. “The hosts violated one of our general rules, which is know what you are talking about,” Mr. Moody said. “They reported information from a publication whose accuracy we didn’t know.”
                Wait, 'knowing what you're talking about' is a FOX general rule? Really!
                What are the other general rules?

                Look at these fools on 'Fox and Friends' try to correct themselves:
                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBVMcLhx6DI

                Who are these people? Can we send them somewhere far away, preferably now?

                  So what is bad about going to a muslim school? Tons of people here go to Sunday schools, and catholic schools, etc. I don't get it.

                  If they were teaching ID at that madrassa, then I would be outraged. I hope Fox can deliver.

                      Re: Obama + Foxnew/CNN = You have got to be kidding

                      Just because I like the linkage (thanks Mosley for the entertaining "correction" video), here's the original segment as it aired on Fox News. My favorite moment (same as Trooper's, and Jon Stewart's - "This...is.... HUUUUUUGE!") comes at 1:12 in. If we could have an audio sig here, that would be mine.

                      Now that these guys aren't beating the drum for the party controlling all three branches of government, their entertainment value is growing significantly. This is pure comedy.

                      EDIT: Speaking of Comedy, here's the linkage to The Daily Show's treatment of the story.

                      EDIT2: Of course, reality hasn't caught up yet with Sean Hannity. The story's still linked on his front page, as if it hasn't been discredited.

                        Because muslims are terrorists.

                        Note for the unaware: the above is sarcasm.

                        I got a good laugh watching the video where Fox tried to clear the air.

                        "Just wanted to clear the air, the magazine that we read and then used to create a huge fuss was wrong. They were wrong. What? An apology from us for being dumb and blowing the story up into HUUUUGE news? We don't need to apologize, it's the magazine's fault. Carry on."

                        Bravo, Fox, bravo.

                          At least we know what the programming on Faux News will look like in a couple of months.

                            What the blank? The guy doing the weather is talking about the slow drips on the Senator's "baddy" image? "It really has been a slow drip for him."


                            These guys do not even care any more. They really do not. That was high school level stuff. I mean they have a great audience base, and I really do not see them losing it anytime soon.

                            @ The Dude. They will be fine. Their audience really could care less about the whole deal. But I see what you mean, if that thing would have been said about W, look out. IMO, it is the same caliber. I mean HUUUUUGE stuff to say that in our age of paranoia towards team Muslim.


                            And now to watch The Daily Show. Expect an edit later.

                            Edit:

                              So let me get this straight.

                              There is a possibility that

                              A. Team Clinton got this story going in order to put the hurt on Obama.
                              B. Fox news got this story going in order to label Obama as a baddy, and they made it look like Clinton did the mud slinging.
                              C. Some retard got this story going and Fox bit on it and was happy to throw mud on each of the two candidates, while receiving relatively little splash damage.
