Fox News Anchor Lies on Obama: Now She’s Apologizing for More Fox News Bad Journalism

wwwppspw


Attacking President Obama appears to be the full-time job of Fox News, even if they have to lie in order to get it done.  Anchor Anna Kooiman stated this week that President Barack Obama offered to pay for a Muslim museum with his own money out of his pocket during the recent government shut down.  Not only would this be prohibitively expensive, it is also not true.  But since when did Fox News care about the truth?

The remarks were made during the Saturday show “Fox & Friends.”  While most journalists might be fired for such an ugly half-truth, Kooiman will probably end up getting a raise and promotion.  She claimed that as the president was paying for a Muslim museum, other more “American” projects, like the World War II monument, were not being funded at all.  Of course the Fox News audience ate it up, since they want to believe that the president comes from another planet.

Kooiman did tweet a quick, open apology.  But it appears that her “source” was a satirical news site that loves to make fun of crazy things that conservatives want to believe  So, much for actually checking your sources.

  1. And this is supposed to be a surprise because of what?
    Fox news has built an empire based on the notion of false narratives and fear exploitation. Facts have no place at Fox and if they did, they wouldn’t exist anymore.

  2. Fox News is for the ignorant and tailored made for white racists. No one without being tethered with the veil of racism believes anything Fox News reports. Period!
    Not that I am advocating that the other news channels are free of bias, just that Fox moves to the top of the heap.

    I would not be surprised if Fox told its viewers that the President has a tail. Just like White soldiers told the French during World War I and II.

  4. What more could one expect from the likes of Fox News? When you check the IQ of these types of individuals you can come up with no ;ess than what you come up with…STUPIDITY!!! Let’s put Rush in that pile of ignorance. It will be a wonderful day when the likes of you people over at FOX News can accept an individual by the the context of their character and not by the color of their skin. When you look in the mirrow in the mornings what do you see looking back at you?

  5. Fox amuse me.

  6. All this stuff can be traced all the way back to European Slavery and Racism but they are getting weaker and weaker and they are kicking to still stay alive.Cocknockers.

  7. The owner of Fox news has already stated he is not about politics but ratings therefore only a fool would believe anything that is on Fox. They get their rocks off by continuously trying to degrade President Obama and the First family. If I were a registered Republican there would be no way I would watch anything on Fox for 99.9% of it is nothing but lies. Fox is ran for and by racist Rednecks with or without money!

  8. Racist Zionist crackers Rupert Racist Ass Murdoch An Australian & English Tel-lie-vision station Secret Agendas all up in there! Abbott & Costello Dummy!

    Why are you all promoting this book about “Free Israel” on this website? Is it simply that they paid for the ad, or does it also have to do with this being a BLACK Website, and they think that all of us black folks love Israel and it’s anti-Jesus Jews? Well, such is not the case, because no blacks of whom I have within my membership, and associates of mine, or family members, give a hoot about that apartheid country. Especially, since we teach that they were not supposed to have their own country in the first place, until THEIR messiah shows up, removes their enemies and leads them into their homeland. And their messiah is NOT JESUS, of whom they do be believe in, nor care at all about. And they do not even care about Christianity, or even the cross, which they spit at whenever passing one. So Christian black readers of the supposedly black website, strongly consider NOT giving a dollar or even a dime to help Israel. Now let me see if the word JEWS is blotted out here, as is the case in other Your Black World sites. And let’s see is the words blacks, African American, Christian, Muslim, Hispanic, greek, Baptists, Mexican, Palestanian, whites, or French are blotted out just as is Jews. — Rev. George Brooks

  12. Fact-Checking has lost the Republicans a couple of elections but FOX NEWS propaganda “has grown grassroots “.., Hence the law makers & the budget-hawks… Their motto is **Don’t retreat, attack ** After government shutdown (no shame) Attack the administration’s website.. Any apology means nothing the “Obstructionist “… lawsuits will…
