Jon Stewart from The Daily Show spotted inconsistencies in a video that aired on Fox News on November 5. Fox News and one of its hosts Sean Hannity used footage from two different events and put them together in the same piece to support an argument that many people showed up at an event in Washington D.C.
To the average viewer it may not have been noticed but when Jon Stewart breaks the piece down it is pretty obvious the differences in the footage. Check out the link below, you will not regreat it.
It is sad when the news networks and newspapers try to get over on the viewers and readers. I just do not understand why journalists have to do this. It is a journalist job to report the news not make a story, journalists are shorting themselves and the public when they try to make a story go their way.
Many Americans have been going to other news sources, such as the BBC. Others who are not prejudice and small minded have been going to Al Jazeera, who has their own English division of the news. Now people can say they are bias in some stories like the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, they are clearly on the side of Palestinian, with the tear jerking stories of how the people are suffering. But what news organizations are unbiased these days? Someone always has a motive. I’m not saying its right but they do.
So, in seeing a blog posted by Mindy McAdams, America needs Al Jazeera English, I thought I would check out the other major world news networks web sites. I was surprised by my results.
The Al Jazeera and the BBC both had similar front pages to their websites and similar stories and coverage. Fox Network also had similar top stories but CNN had coverage of the Emmy’s! Nowhere in the top portion of the page was there anything stating there will be failure in Afghanistan, which is a top story in all of the other networks webpages. All the stations have found this crucial news today. CNN did not.
