This should be the nail-in-the-coffin for anyone that thinks that Fox is a ‘credible’ news source. To my knowledge, this type of blatant fabrication has not been evident on other news channels and puts Fox in a league by itself. It’s sickening. What has happened to journalistic ethics?! What has happened to integrity? On to the clip:

Fox news did get caught red-handed. And sadly, they got caught by the only legitimate news program still on television (which, even more sadly, is on Comedy Central). – ats
“Sean Hannity uses footage of Glenn Beck’s bigger protest to make the GOP’s health care rally appear more heavily attended.” – videosift
… if TDS were lying or fabricating this story, Fox would sue them into oblivion, and Jon Stewart’s staff knows this. By that fact alone, TDS, Comedy Central, and their parent companies have to be 100% sure that what they are presenting is ironclad fact. This isn’t about Fox vs. CNN, repub vs. dem or any of that crap. It’s about pointing out the absurdity of thinking that some people have regarding the sanctity of Fox. What’s it going to take? I don’t care what part of the spectrum you come down on – that clip above destroys any credibility that Fox News has. – ats
CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, who is reporting this? Right. Just Comedy Central…so far. Why? What holds the others back? I have no idea.
For real news read a variety of foreign and small local news sources where real reporters still do their jobs every day: Who, what, where, why, when… no spin.
