Faux News Sunday finds time to discuss "bow-gate," but ignored reports of alleged Blackwater bribes
Despite finding the time to discuss the manner in which President Obama greeted the emperor of Japan on the November 15 broadcast of Fox News Sunday, there was no time during the program devoted to recent reports that officials at Xe Services -- formerly Blackwater Worldwide -- had allegedly authorized about $1 million in bribery payments to Iraqi officials in the aftermath of a fatal shooting involving Blackwater security guards. By contrast, Fox News Sunday has previously devoted 18 minutes of broadcast time to discussing videos of conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles posing as a pimp and a prostitute while asking for assistance from employees at an ACORN office, which followed Fox News' aggressive promotion and coverage of the undercover videos.

I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Just the other day over in another wah wah Fox News thread (http://www.debatepolitics.com/bias-m...post1058361870) they were again quoted as stating Fox News lied, mislead blah blah. Within seconds the MM claim was debunked. Not one MM "fan" had the intestinal fortitude to admit the obvious and of course that paragon of journalistic virtue MM has not seen fit to acknowledge either their incompetence or dishonesty, retract the erroneous claim or apologize. Ya know, exactly what they say Fox News does.
You will note in that thread, that the exposure of a bold Media Matters SNAFU fallacy is ignored by every single poster in the thread. Most of whom have managed to pop up in this one too. You have comments like WillRockwell's "so you can't bust MM?" And of course the person that posted the MM mangling of the truth was Whip Comes Down. How shocking to see that so deep is this posters intellectual honesty and his sense of integrity that he managed to ignore the debunking of his MM allegation. So here he is a few days later up to the same sad shtick (read PeteEU impersonation) and using MM as a source again.
Watching Fox News OCD sufferers cite Media Matters as their source for "proof" that Fox News is (insert irrational allegation here) is the very definition of a circle jerk.
