Fox Refuses To Air President Obama's Equal Pay Signing Ceremony

On national Equal Pay Day, Fox News ignored President Obama's signing ceremony for new executive orders aimed to address the problem.

On April 8, President Obama signed into law two new executive orders to help alleviate the pay gap between men and women hired by federal contractors. The president hosted a ceremony at the White House featuring equal pay pioneer Lily Ledbetter.

Unlike MSNBC and CNN, however, Fox declined to air the ceremony. Happening Now co-host Jon Scott directed viewers to Foxnews.com for coverage of the ceremony after he depicted it as merely political, "the Democrats think it is a political winning issue for them, that is why they are touting it right now." Fox ran a segment that reported on House Republicans' plans to "fix" Obamacare during the event:

3. If there was film of President Obama walking on water

Fox news and republicans in general would complain that he was polluting the water system with his dirty feet. Seriously, he can NEVER do anything right in their eyes. Whatever he does is by definition wrong. I keep expecting to turn on Fox News (not that I ever do) and see the headline "Obama is bad - film at 11."

5. Of course not. If Fox did, Repubs. would be shown the truth. Some might start to vote Democratic.

6. That's because they are not news.

The whole network is a Dramedy masquerading as news.
