SuckerPunching FOX NEWS

Maybe a primer in the English language is necessary for the HuffPo.
They really believe that Rove, Fox, and the RNC, are all one and the same. How sad and shortsighted they are. Clink on the Headline link to go to the 'one line' breaking story...

Fox News Declares “It's Too Late...We're Already Probably At War With Iran”...

Note the circled onscreen text: Is America 'already' at war with Iran? Does that seem like a declaration or is that just a question? Much like, "Is Iraq in Civil War?"

Cavuto said, 'But what if I told you it is too late, that we’re already probably at war with Iran and most of us don’t even know it?"
That is considered a declaration by FOX News? "What if I told you" and "probably" are a definitive declaration?

Remember, this is the very beginning of a news commentary show (not the nightly news), and this lead in line is the 'teaser'. Furthermore, the link to the story fails to provide any further details whatsover. No followup about what Neil said later in the broadcast or any clarification. The entire 'story' is simply a headline and a one line quote taken out of context with no explanation. The link to the story at ThinkProgress consists of a transcript (one sentence) and a video (video of that one sentence). All portrayed to make it appear that FOX had declared war as a de facto arm of the Bush Administration.

Look, I know Fox is killing the competition, but do you have to resort to this, Arianna?

So, Arianna, keep using lies and distortions to try and bad mouth FOX. The fact that you used a deceitful headline (once more) and a link to a completely uninformative, non-story speaks volumes as to who the real hucksters are.

And speaking of the HuffPo goons, lets see how some of their readers have responded to this ONE LINE NON-STORY. This is hilarious shit the way they start frothing at the mouth at the mere mention of Fox:

WTF!!! Our president and his accomplises at Fox News have got to be stopped. We can't just declare war on everybody.

Unlike real journalists who REPORT the news, the regime shills at Faux News like to CREATE the news, STEER the news, SPIN the news and just plain LIE. Shameless. Absolutely shameless.

WOW! This immediately reminded me of when FAUX declared Bush won the 2000 election



Last I knew Bush had to ask Congress before he starts waging war.

I want a reporter to ask Bush why his daughters are not serving overseas since the mission is so noble (according to him).

See, it doesnt take much. You throw a little red meat to the digital brownshirts and they make BBQ.

its pretty interesting that you didnt post the pic from huffpost supporting their claim, and huffpost didnt do this story anyway, they just linked to it from Think Progress, where the full transcript is posted and you can link to the video itself. Didnt anyone ever tell you not to judge a book by its cover? headlines are attention grabbers, not informational highlights.

I did post it. I had to copy and paste its HTML since blogger is having some probs right now and doesnt seem able to allow me to upload pictures (at this moment. )
The full transcript IS NOT posted:

CAVUTO: But what if I told you it is too late, that we’re already probably at war with Iran and most of us don’t even know it. Welcome everybody, I’m Neil Cavuto, and this is Your World."

Thats it, Joe. Thats the entire transcript. Now click on the video link. The video is nothing more than the above quote. You KNOW Neil spoke more about this during the show, this was just the lead in teaser at the top of the show.

SO YOU ARE WRONG JOE. The link does not lead to a full transcript, and the video does not either.

Have you gone to Think Progess and watched the video yet, Joe? Its pretty informative huh? Have you read the 'complete transcript'?

I did check it, and they gave the transcript about what was posted, I do see that the pic is up now, I'll just take your word for it that it was always there. I have no reason to think you are being dishonest.

alright so I was wrong. I dont have a problem admitting it.

I think that its a good representation of the methodology Fox uses to manipulate its veiwers, and its no different from the way Huffpost makes their headlines. Yet it seems you only see the manipulation on one side of the issues, makes one think you're wearing blinders.

I do make mistakes on occasion, something to do with being human I think, but from your reaction one would think you havent had the experience of ever being wrong.
That must be nice.
Tell me, does that perfection come with a halo, or is it just a benifit of being republican?

I make mistakes, Joe. Im wearing underwear on my head for crissakes! I have to hit the 'publish' button like 10 times because I keep finding typos or a pic wont load right.

Just one more question:

Why did you choose this reply?:
"Last I knew Bush had to ask Congress before he starts waging war."

This one happens to be true, which is why we arent really at War with Iraq, Congress never declared War. Sure we're busy killing as many of them as possible, but that doesnt make it a war. Yes they authorized a "Use of Force", much like vietnam, though obviously that isnt supposed to imply this is the same as veitnam .

I gotta admit I didnt realize that was underwear, I thought it might be a yarmulke, or maybe a scrubs hairnet.

Joe, the president didnt declare war on Iran. Neither has Fox News. Thats why I included that quote. Its moronic to say "only congress can declare war". WE KNOW THAT. But this guy apparently believed the headline, that FOX had declared war and that that was all Bush needed, that we were indeed now at war with Iran.

Of course, Congress DID approve the Iraq War.

Hehe I guess I wasnt thinking of it in terms of the post itself, stupid of me.

When exactly did Congress Declare war in Iraq? Surely you dont mean during Bush I's presidency, do you? they didnt declare war then either, they Authorized the use of force (on January 12, 1991)in accordance with The UN Authorization of Military Indradiction (of August 25th 1990).

You are correct, Joe. We didnt actually declare war. I wonder what the difference is between authorizing force and declaring war. I guess authorizing force means 'attack if need be' whereas a declaration would be bombs dropping tomw, no more talk.
