How stupid are the people who trust FOX News? How much deception can they absorb before they catch on? Virtually every news program aired footage of the speeches given during the King funeral last week. They all aired footage of the many condemnations of the Bush policies. They also aired the thunderous applause invoked by the comments. At one point a 3 minute standing ovation resulted at the conclusion of a speech that contained several powerful condemnations of Bush policy.
FOX News watchers, however, were exposed to an altered version of reality, as usual. FOX News aired footage of one of the key speeches where all but 8 seconds of the audio portion of the 3 minute standing ovation was edited out. The FOX â€œNewsâ€ crew was actually commenting on how the speech did not get a big response and that the crowd seemed to show respect to Bush with their silence. What rock do FOX News watchers live under? How removed from reality does one have to be in order to maintain a trust in FOX News? Not that any of the other news organizations deserve our trust; they do not. But the deception pretreated on the public by FOX News is so obvious and so over the top that one would have to be a moron not to notice. And for those of you why may be wondering where I am going with this, or where I already went with thisâ€¦I am indeed calling the people who trust FOX News, morons. Sorry, but it is true and it is about time we started speaking the truth a little more often and with the passion it deserves. Think about it!
