More lies by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News

This video is called OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch‘s War on Journalism — Trailer.

From the blog of Paul Begala in the USA:

Fox News: We Report — Even if We Know It’s False

I’ve been dealing with the media and politics for 25 years, but I’ve never had a more surrealistic day than January 8. Several times that day Fox News reported that I was joining Sen. Hillary Clinton‘s campaign. It was a big story – at least until the stunning election returns.

The only problem was, it wasn’t true.

Fox News never even tried to contact me to verify their story, and when I contacted Fox, I felt like a character in a Kafka novel — or at least Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Fox’s Major Garrett — a good guy whom I’ve known for years — broke the story. My phone started ringing off the hook, and my email box bulged. There are still, thank goodness, a lot of real journalists out there. Tim Russert was first. I assured him it wasn’t true, he thanked me for waving him off a false story, and that was that. …

After I told Fox it wasn’t true — and this is the surreal part — they kept reporting it anyway.
