FauxNewz at it again....
Edited on Tue Jul-29-08 04:48 PM by WyldRogue
Just saw a report on Ted Stevens and...you guessed it, FauxNewz had this as the banner:

Ted Stevens (D-AK)

Unbelievable!!

(I need to make it clear that it was my local Faux station that did it)

I did capture it with my DVR but in all actuality, I have no way of transferring it to a video for a screen capture :(

Gonna snap a pic of the screen with my digicam and post the pic asap

Here it is folks!!

5. Just another honest mistake, obviously.
Faux would never knowingly pull such an obvious stunt. Again. And again. And again.

Even the ones that know they do this shit gloss over it. They don't care.

11. "Arrangements ... to turn himself in..."
"Stevens will not be arrested. He was seen walking into an attorney's office, and Justice Department officials said arrangements are being made for him to turn himself into authorities."

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,393562,00.html


i.e., no press photos because Stevens isn't a Democrat. :eyes:

15. It's no wonder that so many wish bad things to happen to Fox
They are so truly evil in so many ways. I won't even watch the local affiliate unless it's something generic like my Red Sox playing and I have no choice.

29. In their defense, it's HARD to tell 'Ds' from 'Rs'.
See, they BOTH have that straight vertical thingy on the (shudder) LEFT side.
And they both have that humpy thingy on the RIGHT (YEA!) side.
Except the 'R' has that little tail thingy on it too.
(Typographers used to just tear their hair out over that.)

I'll never forget the time that an article in Variety referred to the song "RARRY'S LITTLE GIRD".
:rofl:

They also did it for Craig as well but am having trouble finding an image :(


Found a 'mistake on Arlen Spectre who's a Republican (who was in the doghouse for a bit at the time)



And look what I found:



That was when McSame had the Rethugs pissed off and FauxNewz (who absolutely loves him now) tagged him as a Dem
