    Fox News Fabricates Part of U.S. Constitution

    Fox News is shameless in misinforming its viewers into believing that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan should recuse herself from the case involving the constitutionality of a provision of the Affordable Care Act. In this case, they’ve been caught blatantly making up part of the U.S. Constitution to help make their case…
    Fox News Fabricates Parts of U.S. Constitution
    Three glaring problems with this argument: The Constitution has no Article 28, has no Section 144, and does not contain the language quoted.
    The Constitution actually contains seven articles, none of which have more than 10 sections. It also has 27 amendments, none of which contain anywhere near 144 sections.
    The language Fox quoted from actually comes from a statute passed by Congress, Title 28 of the U.S. Code, Section 455. But that’s the very statute legal ethicists have analyzed in finding that Kagan does not need to recuse herself because of the email.
    Obviously, part of the issue is that there’s a pretty major typo, but it goes well beyond that into the non-existent fact-checking.

    It was just a mistake. They don't really think the Constitution says that. Fox sucks ass, but not that hard.

    Well the kool-aid drinkers wouldn't comment on Obama saying we have 57 states so I will opt-out like they did. Shoe is on the other foot now.

    I'll gladly comment on it.

    People misspeak. Big deal. Do you really think Obama, former Harvard Law Review president and Senator, actually thought there were 57 states? That makes you stupid, not him.

    That said, FOX also just made a simple mistake here too. Not deliberate. It's basically like a typo. Big deal.

    Oh, and two wrongs don't make a right.

    Not quite the same. Obama was tired from traveling, and he made a slip-up on the spot. Congress not only fabricated a line in the Constitution, they created whole new articles and sections so that they can make their point. Obama made a mistake. FOX News lied. Again.
