Anderson Cooper Calls out Sean Hannity

Fox News host Sean Hannity aired a special on “liberal media bias” that CNN’s Anderson Cooper claims was edited in a “completely misleading way.”

In the clip from Hannity’s show, Cooper is shown calling the attacks on Joseph Wilson, the former Bush administration ambassador who set off the Valerie Plame scandal, “a victim of a Bush administration smear campaign.” However, as Cooper showed, the clip had begun in the middle of a sentence. Cooper was actually saying that Wilson was claiming to be a victim of a smear campaign, not stating his own personal opinion.

“I try to choose my words very carefully and I don’t like it when someone cuts around them to make it seem like I’m saying something I’m not,” he said, adding that he hoped Hannity did not “knowingly, falsely edit something to make a point. After all, that would be biased.”

Keith Olbermann Dares Bill O’Reilly & Glenn Beck to Sue for Defamation

Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck are upset about a character on the fictional TV show Law & Order mentioning their spreading of hate and ignorance, so Keith Olbermann calls them out and dares them to sue. Of course, if they take this to the U.S. courts, and not the court of public opinion of like-minded viewers, their spreading of hate and ignorance will be used against them. They would rather play the victim and whine about it on TV where nobody can debate them. Here is Keith Olbermann’s response:

Bill O’Reilly Confuses Obama & Osama, Forgets He’s Live

Normally, Fox News Channel airs a taped version of The O’Reilly Factor, but last night’s was, apparently, a live broadcast, which Bill O’Reilly seemed to forget at one moment. When he mistakenly started to refer to Osama bin Laden as “Obama,” he mentioned having to “cut that again.”

O’REILLY: Pinheads and patriots, on deck, tonight starring a Congressman who says, you’re never going to believe it, Pres. Bush allowed Obam…uh…Osama…I’m going to have to cut that again.

Of course, it could have been worse… it could have looked like this:

Fox News Caught Using Election Footage For Sarah Palin Book Signing

It’s getting cliche to say another day, another Fox News “mistake,” but that’s what Fox News is claiming now that they’ve been caught, yet again, using old footage from past events in stories run for current events.

Just recently Jon Stewart aired part of a Sean Hannity report about the Bachmann rally in which FNC used footage from the 9/12 protest in Washington DC that helped them portray the event as having a larger attendance than it really did. Now, Fox News has been caught using year old election footage in a story about Sarah Palin’s book signing when Fox News host Gregg Jarrett stated that Palin is “continuing to draw huge crowds while she’s promoting her brand new book. Take a look at — these are some of the pictures just coming into us.”

Fox News claims that this is a “production error” and that “serious discipline action” will be taken. It’s rare that anyone at FNC will admit to any wrongdoing, but this is the second time in about a week that the same “mistake” has occurred. Keep in mind that Fox has gone to court to protect their right to lie. So, the chances that this was a mistake and that they even care are probably equal – slim to none.

Crooks and Liars’ John Amato is filing an FCC complaint against Fox News for its misleading segment. You, too, can contact the FCC.

Original Story

Update: A “production error” was made and the wrong video was used in this post. This has been corrected and “serious discipline action” will be taken – I’ll slap my own wrist. Thank you, I’ll be here all week…

Sean Hannity Caught Using 9/12 Video to Inflate Bachmann Rally #s

The Daily Show host Jon Stewart slams Sean Hannity for trying to dupe his viewers by showing footage of the crowds from the 9/12 Project event in Washington DC and saying it was from Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) anti-health care reform protest. First, 9/12 supporters use attendance numbers from Obama’s Inauguration to inflate their own attendance, and now they’re using the actual 9/12 footage to inflate the numbers of the latest event.

Update: Sean Hannity has apologized. Did I just see something porcine go past my window?

HANNITY: Now on his program last night he mentioned that we had played some incorrect video on this program last week while talking about the Republican health care rally on Capitol Hill. He was correct. We screwed up. We aired some video of a rally in September, along with the video from the actual event. It was an inadvertent mistake, but a mistake nonetheless. So Mr. Stewart, you were right. We apologize. But by the way, I wanna thank you and all your writers for watching.

Translation: We inadvertently got caught.

Notice how he only apologized to Stewart? Where is the apology to his viewers? Perhaps his fans don’t expect one, because he is simply mirroring their own preconceived notions, right or wrong.

Fox News Uses Children In Anti-Obama Propaganda

Here is a clip from Countdown on msnbc discussing Fox News’ obsession with what FNC personalities are calling “indoctrination” of our youth. The video shows singing children from February (Black History Month), seven months ago! Keep in mind that the children brought home notices and no outrage was shown before, during, or after, until now, seven months later from Fox News. Then, of course, you have O’Reilly, Hannity, et al claiming this never happened with Bush. msnbc provides the video showing that it did, in fact, happen with Bush too. At about 4:40 into the video, Eric Burns from Media Matters, points out the legal issues surrounding the fact that the original video shown by Fox News did not have the children’s faces blurred.
