what liberal media? fox news releases false kerry qoutes

fox news releases false kerry qoutes

TV news show sorry for Kerry 'joke'
From correspondents in Washington
October 2, 2004

AMERICA'S Fox News apologised today for posting phoney quotes from US Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry on its website.

Carl Cameron, a Fox reporter who covers the Kerry campaign, wrote an item that had looked like a news story but had made-up Kerry quotes, said Paul Schur, a Fox spokesman.

The item was not intended to be posted on the site.

"Carl made a stupid mistake which he regrets," Mr Schur said. "And he has been reprimanded for his lapse in judgment.

"It was a poor attempt at humour."

The phoney item read in part:

"Rallying supporters in Tampa Friday Kerry played up his performance in Thursday night's debate in which many observers agreed the Massachusetts senator outperformed the president.

"'Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!' Kerry said Friday."

The item also quoted Kerry as saying of himself and President George W. Bush: "I'm metrosexual - he's a cowboy."

After withdrawing the item, Fox posted a statement on its website apologising for the error.

It said: "The item was based on a reporter's partial script that had been written in jest and should not have been posted or broadcast. We regret the error, which occurred because of fatigue and bad judgment, not malice."

Mr Cameron had been a political reporter for Fox News since 1996, Mr Schur said.

Asked about the incident, Kerry spokesman David Wade said: "America would be stronger if only George Bush could admit his mistakes as easily."

FOX News, has always been, and will always be biased Republican butt-smoochers. That's just how it is. I refuse to watch their news channel seeing as the same company that owns that, Clear Channel, is also helped by a dear friend of George W. Not only that, how can they act so snobby, aren't they responsible for such things as, The Simpsons, That 70s Show and so on. Sorry, one news network doesn't bring you up to the credibility of CNN, or even CBS.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

CBS News? Credibility?

Fox News may have a conservative slant, but every other news agency (CNN, CBS, etc) is liberal!

Maybe the same liberal media that released false (horrifically false) documents about Bush's guard service????

Fox suxx

I understand that this phony network's ratings are down as well.

You have to wonder, who could be so stupid as to believe the reich wing Nazi style Bushsh¡t that those idiots impart every night? Dr Goebels could not have spoken or written more slanted garbage in his time.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

I only watch Fox News for their attractive reporters. I have to have it on mute though since their spin is sickening. Actually, the spin on both sides sucks ass. The worst part is that the vast majority of Americans are sheep and will do what one of these dipshit networks tells them to do.

you are right because we all know that bush went to vietman got 3 purple hearts. we all know was NOT an drunk, crackhead getting by on his fathers concentions. and any news media outlet that does not report on GWBush's 3 purple heart is really just a mouth peice for left.

The liberal Media is largely a myth...frankly the American mainstream media too often seems too timid in tackling its leaders...

Whne Blair/Bush meet up the contrast is amazing...questions from the American media are respectful, frankly pretty soft...

The British media (despite our press leaning conservative) at such events are rude, sarcastic, looking to trip up the politicans and most importantly to get answers...that's how is SHOULD be! There shouldn't be a cosy relationship between media and goverment, whatever its persuassion.

Add to this the weekly half hour of Prime Ministers questions and monthly press conferences, we get to see what happens when our Prime Minister is asked tough questions.

Only perhaps in the debates in GW being tested in that way...and being revealed for the useless fool he is.

Why don't you prove it instead of spouting off things that resort to mere accusations?

fox news is pathetic.
fox is shamelessly and obviously the republican party's poodle.
on the other hand, while CNN might have a liberal "slant" at worst, its a slant. i havent seen them being either covertly or overtly critical of the government except in an oblique way. (digression : compare that to the BBC which inspite of being state-owned has major run-ins with the labor government).

what makes me most pessimistic about this upcoming election is that fox and its biased reporting is widely believed to be the truth by the voting population.



And then she was back, that goddess-like creature, back to torment the souls of the good and distribute free samples of bacon to the bad.

How can CNN have a liberal slant when it's lead political guy is Bill Schneider, who is massive right wing with the American Enterprise Institute

and it's "main" news man, Wolf Blitzer, is a hardcore republican as well.

i didnt know that about schneider, but anyway i'm only referring to certain people, such as cheesestix here, saying CNN has a considerable liberal bias. but then i suppose they consider any channel that doesn't spout Big Brother's line in its unedited, unmitigated beauty is a liberal mouthpiece.
