Fox News Launches Their Campaign To Recall Wisconsin Democrats
http://www.politicususa.com/en/fox-news-wisconsin-recal...

Fox News jumped into the Wisconsin recall elections today, by hyping the recall elections being faced by three Democratic senators, while never mentioning that six Republicans also face recall.

Here is the video from Media Matters:

:snip:

Steve Doocy said, Remember the Democratic lawmakers from Wisconsin who ran away from their responsibilities and hid out in hotels in other states during the debates with the unions? Well, three of them are now facing recall elections. They will be held next month.

Fox is trying to frame the recall as a voter driven effort to punish the Democrats for leaving the state instead of allowing Scott Walker to pass his union busting measure. The truth is that the recall effort is being driven by voter outrage over Walker and Republicans in the state legislature passing the measure in violation of the states open meeting law. Walker then tried to implement the measure in violation of judicial order not to.

2. Clearly an admission.




What more proof do people need? They are clearly admitting right here and now that they are not in the
news business (they never were). It is plain to see they are the propaganda arm of the rethuglican party.

3. Corporate wants to cut the US hold on democracy at the bud with
the shotty propaganda of FOX. The undermining of democracy should be illegal.Isn't it illegal to provide comprehensive misleading information?

4. SFOP
This is SFOP for Fox and anyone with a brain that can actually use it knows it; although many of their listeners don't qualify.

This will motivate those that can think for themselves the rest will just be led by their cult leaders anyway.
