Fox Attacks!:

On March 13, 2008, FOX’s Sean Hannity interviewed John McCain for the full hour. The interview started with questions about McCain’s time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. At one point, this was said:

MCCAIN: I think it makes you a better person. Obviously, it makes you love America. I really didn't love America until I was deprived of her company.

Get that? McCain “really didn’t love America” until he was a POW.

Jedreport.com discovered that the transcript of the McCain/Hannity interview on FoxNews.com had no mention of McCain saying he “really didn’t love America” until he was a POW. I checked and sure enough, it wasn’t there. So I started watching the video of the interview of FoxNews.com — it wasn’t there either. Read on...

This video proves Fox News scrubbed McCain's statement from the video and transcript on their website. We know Fox isn't fair or balanced and have come to expect this sort of hackery from them, but they still have to be called out for it. Call or write Fox and ask them why a so-called news outlet is trying to effect a presidential election by scrubbing John McCain's unflattering statement from their website. Remember, be nice...
