(Hackery begins around the 3:47 mark)

As the right went apoplectic in anticipation of the health care reform vote, Fox News did their level best to muddy the waters in their coverage from Washington on Sunday. The desperation is reaching such heights, I'm almost embarrassed for them...almost.

Many thanks for the video and more from News Hounds:

Fox News didn’t just insert video of health care protesters to take away from the moment of Rep. Bart Stupak’s press conference announcing that he had reached a deal with the Obama administration and, as a result, would be supporting the health care reform bill that was now all but certain to pass. Fox also added audio to make it sound as though the protesters were part of the event, threatening to drown him out.

Can you help us out?
