Fox News continues to lie about “violent protests in Wisconsin”

Just yesterday, we were talking here about a Fox News reporter who lied in his coverage of protests taking place in Madison, Wisconsin. As you’ll recall, he claimed to have been beaten, when video shot by one of the protesters clearly showed that he hadn’t been. Well, Fox responded today by showing real video of protesters engaged in actual instances of violence. Of course, the video they were showing, as Bill O’Reilly talked about the unruly mobs n Wisconsin, of angry protesters pushing people and screaming in their faces, wasn’t actually shot in Wisconsin. If you look in the background, you can see palm trees.

    Why not show footage from the LA riots that happened after the Rodney King video became public? Or, better yet, how about images from the 1967 Detroit Riots?

    I didn’t realize when I posted that last comment that today is the 20th anniversary of the Rodney King beating.

    Wow, I’ve only been out of the country for 2 weeks and I barely recognize the place. Is it worth it to come back?

    This just strikes me as testing the limits of laziness and gullibility of the FOX regular viewer… I mean, honestly, of all the protest-like footage they have sitting around on their hard-drives, they can’t find anything without a handful of fucking palmtrees plainly visible in the background. Really? They aren’t even trying anymore.

    Taters, why do you not acknowledge me? It’s driving me mad. I want to be friends. You sound like a very dynamic individual. I’m picturing you having the build of a lumberjack. I feel like the young Alan Greenspan must have felt the first time he met Ayn Rand. I feel alive for the first time in my life. Please don’t continue to ignore me. It’s only intensifying the throbbing of my heterosexual loins. Let’s go and beat up gays and then make love.
