Fox News Gets A Little Taste Of The Truth

I think the easiest job in the world has to be being a producer for Fox News. All you have to do is pitch ideas that you think paint Democrats in a bad light. Bring up Soros, Barbra Streisand and of course, Michael Moore, because we all know that they are pillars of the Democratic Party. Rinse and repeat. Over and over again.

Unfortunately for Fox, I think that the rest of the public (at least those who want to use critical thinking skills) have wised up and are using Fox's tactics against them.

Case in point, from News Hounds:

Martha MacCallum, host of Fox News' "The Live Desk," interviewed Deb Melnyk and Rick Caine, makers of an unauthorized biography of Moore called "Manufacturing Dissent." Although the film presents criticisms of Moore, it also includes interviews with supporters.[..]

While MacCallum tried to focus on the short-comings of Moore's work, Caine had bigger fish to fry.

"At its core here, Martha, what we're talking about is truth-telling via the media," he said. "So for us to sit here and act like Michael is the only person buffalo-ing the American public I think is a little disingenuous."

MacCallum failed to flinch at that, telling the two that they had obviously set out to show that Moore "wasn't what he was pretending to be, right?"

No, they said, they set out to tell the truth, whatever it happened to be.

"If someone is willing to lie for the cause, like a major news organization, for instance, it causes all kinds of problems for democracy. ... The media has to tell the truth. I don't care which side of the divide you're on. We've got to knock off the lies and tell the truth so the American public can do the right thing," Caine said.
