Rachel Maddow does an excellent job here pointing out the hypocrisy of Fox News and condemning the Obama administration for acting without knowing the whole story just one day after they were attacking Shirley Sherrod as being a racist and playing the highly edited recording of her on their network.

As Rachel noted when she wrapped this up, "the wonder is not that they do this. The wonder of all of this is anybody falls for it... over and over and over and over and over again..."

No doubt. How anyone can watch Fox and think they are a credible news source is beyond me. They wrap up the segment with Kent Jones doing his best impersonation of how Fox would have covered the Aesop fable The Tortoise and the Hare.

Can you help us out?
