Conservatives Accuse Obama Of Lying About Giffords Opening Eyes; Her Doctors Disagree

January 13, 2011 1:12 pm ET by Ben Dimiero

In one of the most cynical displays in recent memory, following the lead of Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, several conservative websites - including Fox Nation and MRC arm CNS News - suggested that President Obama lied last night when he said that Rep. Giffords had opened her eyes for the first time shortly after his Wednesday night visit to the hospital.

In a recently-completed press conference, Giffords' doctor Peter Rhee explained that what Obama said last night about Giffords opening her eyes was "true."

In response to a question from a reporter about previous statements that Giffords could open her eyes, Rhee and Dr. B Michael Lemole, Section Chief of Neurosurgery at University Medical Center in Tuscon, explained the important distinction. Namely, Giffords previously opened her eyes in response to "stimulus," and yesterday she opened them spontaneously, which represented a "major milestone" in her recovery.

While it's depressing to have to parse this -- rather than simply be happy about the good news -- such is the state of the conservative media, where absolutely everything Obama says is fodder for their attacks. Instead of chalking up any potential discrepancy between what Obama said and previous statements by doctors to the complex nature of medicine, conservatives went ahead and accused the president of lying. It's as despicable as it is predictable.

Expect Jim Hoft to accuse Giffords' doctors of being in on the conspiracy shortly.

Much like News Corp is the Rupert Murdoch propaganda ministry, eh?

At least I post a citation to back up the article I reference, whether you like the group who put the article out is frankly none of my concern.

Other that you childish loons, FOX is considered amoung adults to be fair and balaced, their ratings prove it nightly. Your continue maligning of the Network and its highly successful owner, while covering your eyes to all of the money and hype the George Soros check book has put into propaganda and Obama's puppet strings, makes you so small in the public eye that we dismiss you as we would when swatting a fly.

or bush standing on top of the trade towers ...Uh?..can we call that a photo op.?

see both sides are loons making it a political rally and a photo op. So stop blaming one side when the other has done just the same.
Bob, did you miss the point on this? Some things are acceptable and some are not. Some things that are acceptable in one time and place are not acceptable in another. A memorial service is not supposed to be a pep rally, and people at a memorial service shouldn't behave in a manner acceptable at a pep rally.

Care to explain this then?

Fox News is the most distrusted name in news, while PBS is the most trusted, according to a poll by Public Policy Polling.

The study was released on Wednesday. It is the second annual TV news trust poll PPP has conducted. The poll finds that PBS is the most trusted news outlet by a wide margin, with 50 percent of respondents saying they trust it, as opposed to 30 who don't.

Fox News is the second-most trusted network, but also the most distrusted one, with 42 percent trusting it and 46 percent not trusting it. That's as compared to the 43 percent who said they didn't trust CNN, CBS or ABC. But Fox News was one of only two networks that saw its distrust levels increase from last year's study. Last year, 37 percent of respondents said they didn't trust Fox--a nine-point difference from the 2011 poll.
