O’Reilly Factor “Misreports” Mark Foley’s Party Affiliation

Posted in mass media, News, News and politics, Politics by Curtis on 10/4/06

From MosquitoBlog:

FOX used three different 15-second cutaways to identify Foley as a Democrat from Florida. Ever wonder why the studies show that FOX News viewers are the most ill-informed Americans?

So he’s once, twice, three times a Democrat now. If the mistake had happened once during a less high-profile program on the network then I couldn’t see making a big deal out of it. But O’Reilly is peak time for FOX—I mean, the ratings just go through the roof when that *(&@# starts jabbering. And it wasn’t just one offense, but three. So someone knew what they were doing.

Cute. Keep it up, Rupie, and see what happens.

Sadly, probably nothing.

    I agree, this was a ridiculously stupid mistake for a Cable News Channel to make. And to make it 3 times is difficult to pardon, casting suspicion as to whether it was a mistake at all. But you bring up a good point: This is why it’s important to get information from various sources. If a person consistently watches only ONE network, regardless of the network, they will be ill-informed.

    Can you point me in the direction of the studies that claim FOX News viewers are the most ill-informed Americans?

    O’Reily is the worst hpyocrite on Fox news. The arrogance of these anchors make me so angry that I canceled Fox News. Stephen Colbert last night reported on his fake O’Reily show.

    These Southern Church going folks watch Fox News who believe in all Fox News propaganda as truth. There are about 45% Americans who still believe that US has find WMD in Iraq and Saddam Hussein had some connection with 9/11. This is illinformed its ignorance and close minded uneducated approach.
