Fox News host Steve Doocy: Romney’s ‘Lie of the Year’ actually true



By Eric W. Dolan

Fox News host Steve Doocy claimed on Sunday that a Romney campaign ad that was widely rebuked as misleading was in fact true.

The ad claimed that Chrysler planned to make Jeeps in China due to President Barack Obama’s policies, but that Romney would “fight for every American job.” Numerous media outlets and fact-checkers slammed the campaign ad for falsely suggesting Jeep was outsourcing jobs to China. Chrysler itself debunked the claim and PolitiFact named the ad as its “Lie of the Year” for 2012.

Doocy insisted news that Chrysler planned to build 100,000 Jeeps in China was proof the Romney ad was true. His guest, Seton Motley, said the fact-checkers were actually leftists masquerading as objective journalists.

1. If Douchey says it, it must be true.

I probably know ten guys who would take it as gospel.

3. Chrysler can't build enough Jeeps for US market & China is charging absurd tariffs on imported Jeeps

 

The Romney campaign has insisted that its most recent ad — which is carefully worded enough that it is not factually inaccurate — merely states the truth: that Jeeps are not currently made in China but will be soon. But the ad makes no mention of the point Mr. Marchionne and others have made, which is that no American jobs will be lost.

The Romney campaign has shown no signs of backing away from the ad. In fact, it is now repeating the same claims in a new radio commercial.

The memo from Mr. Marchionne is below:

Chrysler Group’s production plans for the Jeep® brand have become the focus of public debate.

I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China.

North American production is critical to achieving our goal of selling 800,000 Jeep vehicles by 2014. In fact, U.S. production of our Jeep models has nearly tripled (it is expected to be up 185%) since 2009 in order to keep up with global demand.

We also are investing to improve and expand our entire U.S. operations, including our Jeep facilities. The numbers tell the story:

• We will invest more than $1.7 billion to develop and produce the next generation Jeep SUV, the successor of the Jeep Liberty — including $500 million directly to tool and expand our Toledo Assembly Complex and will be adding about 1,100 jobs on a second shift by 2013.

5. What does Douchebag drive?

Why should Douchbag be given any credibility considering all of the whoppers he tells during his shows?

9. Fox News Lies: Pretends Romney’s Jeeps-In-China ‘Lie Of The Year’ Was True

This headline needs the words "Fox News Lies" in the headline to get the real fact about this article clearly stated.
