Fox News Does Not Blame Republicans Who Voted Against Health Care for 9/11 RespondersOn the "Fox & Friends" show, Fox News reports on the block closure of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 that would cover health care costs to 1st responders of the 9/11 attack sites.
So basically, Republicans cutoff health care to 9/11 first responders, which means that yeah, just about 10 years was enough for them to "forget", despite all the bumper stickers and XXXL t-shirts explaining that the expiration date on that guilt was "never".
Fox's legal analyst responds to the decision with "Shame, embarrassment, outrage and anger" (all while sad-sounding jazz music plays in the background, thanks to Fox's special effects masterminds).
He also claims that the American senators have "turned their back on American heroes."
However, one thing that the reporter fails to mention in all his backlashing is that 42 votes against the bill were all done by Republicans.
So in fact, it was Republican senators themselves who blocked the 9/11 responder health care bill. The mysterious omission crucial information is the FAIL here and the fact that pretty much everyone called them on it is an even bigger FAIL.
Fox is like that kid in class that gets busted for using the same exact sentence as Wikipedia on a history essay... only people rely on them for news.

Fox News Mocks NASA's Attempt to Bring the World Together, Mocks ReaganHere's one that's really out-of-this-world, even by Fox's standards. After NASA administrator Charles Bolden delivered his outreach goals for the space agency, Fox immediately transformed the innocuous PR statement into a malicious agenda.
Bolden said NASA intended to "reinspire children," "expand international relations" and "reach out to the Muslim world." These, of course, could only be the words of cruel, cruel terrorists since obviously the most important word used in these statements was "Muslim."
Fox focused on that word and one correspondent even pointed out in an argument as to why NASA is dealing in religious affairs that "the S stands for Space." Cutting edge news here, folks.
The Fox graphics department even joined into the efforts of building conspiracy by transforming the NASA logo on the screen into the "Crescent moon and star" symbol affiliated with the Muslim world.
WHY DIDN'T WE SEE THIS COMING?
Well, Jon Stewart put it nicely saying, "Because I wasn't really looking for it and don't really care." If Fox is suspicious of NASA and its Muslim dealings, then it should also be very suspicious of that one guy who's supposedly a leader of sorts for their own, Ronald Reagan. He also used the space program to build a bridge to peace in his presidency. But he must've been wrong to think that NASA could accomplish such a thing because, well, like one ignoramus once said, "S stands for Space!"

Fox News is Not Run By HumansThere's always been speculation as to whether or not Fox News reporters and hosts have any human soul at all, and in 2010 Fox put that speculation to rest.
They do not have souls; they are not even human, according to them.
In a February edition of Fox News' "Happening Now," an on-screen graphic showed a man sitting in a closet with the following story headline: "dsfgsdfgdsfgsdf." Oh, and the additional story details goes: "sdfgsdfgsdfgsdfg." Personally, Fox robots showing their true colors are the best thing that's happened to the network. It shows the world that there is indeed a reason for all the unintelligent madness that goes on over there.

More likely scenario: people were having a conjugal visit in the control room and/or their graphics guy got laid off that day and was just putting in some extra hours.
Fox Completely Misquotes Obama. No, This One Was Worse.Anyone who's taken a history class before knows that treaties are hard to follow. There's a lot of words involved and details that need special attention in order to get the full picture of the agreement are often "wordy" and require "reading."
The fact that Fox News only hires people who failed history was illustrated, clearly, in their discussion of the nuclear arms treaty President Obama signed with Russia in April.
Though the policy does limit the amount of nuclear weapons to a more-than-sufficient number per country and prohibits countries from using nuclear weapons to those that don't have nuclear weapons, the treaty also clearly states that the "U.S. reserves the right to make any adjustment to this policy in the case of biological weapons threats" and that the policy "does not apply to countries not in compliance with NPT."
What that does NOT mean is that "if there was a biological attack which killed over a million Americans [that the] president [is] saying we would not retaliate," which is exactly what a Fox correspondent DOES say in the video below starting at 3:50. Amazing.
And it's not just one Fox correspondent completely misunderstanding the treaty, there's a second one, equally dumb, equally confident that "yes, that's what the president is saying."
Jon Stewart breaks it down for us better than a collection of Fox News clips, cause c'mon, why poison your brain with more of those than are already on this list:

Video of British Tea Partiers is Actually of Student ProtestIt's easy to say that Fox News is a major leader in distorting U.S. news, but on November 26 in a segment of "Special Report" titled "Yankee Rebellion Resonates in Ye Olde England," Bret Baier started misrepresenting news on behalf of another country: Britain.
Let's start off with the title "Ye Olde England." Don't think the modern-day sovereign state of the United Kingdom likes being talked down to like some non-functioning ancient relic very much, but that's not the real problem, old chaps.
The real problem is the so-called "Yankee" rebellion that Fox News was touting around, reporting that Great Britain was following the United States' example and embracing the Tea Party ideology. At one point in the report a voiceover says that the British people are increasingly asking for smaller government and tax cuts, but the video that's played as an example of this actually shows the opposite.
If looked at closely, the video, which lasts only for a few seconds, is of protestors marching against education cuts and increased tuition fees. These are both things that directly contrast Fox's news report.
Sadly, subtle "mistakes" like these often sidle the average viewer leading them to believe that the protesters are actually Tea Party activists.
