22. Dembloggers has Faux spinning on this issue
"Video: Fox News Tries To Spin Fake Applause

If you haven't heard, the only applause during the Bush speech was started by a Bush staffer. When FOX News heard of this they had to spin the news so it wouldn't make Bush look like a clown. Fair and balanced my ass!

On the positive side it is a little funny that even Fox News admits that the applause was fake." :
