Fox News Edits Video of The President To Blame Obama For Violence In Ferguson
In the Fox News version of the video, the president said,“I know that many Americans have been deeply disturbed by the images we’ve seen in the heartland of our country, as police have clashed with people protesting….There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests, or to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.”
Fox News took two quotes from the president that were unrelated, and four paragraphs apart in his speech, to create the false impression that Obama was siding with the protestors.

Here is what the president really said,“I know that many Americans have been deeply disturbed by the images we’ve seen in the heartland of our country, as police have clashed with people protesting. Today, I’d like us all to take a step back and think about how we’re going to be moving forward.

Fox News has been editing the president’s remarks for years, and years, and years. The use of this tactic is not new, but it demonstrates how far Fox News is willing to go in order to misinform and mislead their viewers.

Fox constructed an entire Obama bashing segment around a misleadingly edited video (LIE). Fox News has spent the entire Obama presidency attempting to use racial division in order to sink the Obama presidency. Michael Brown’s murder was just another excuse for Fox News to remind viewers that Obama is black and blame him for violence.

I can tell that your teachers must have loved you. This is very good work. You took the time and energy to give an exact example of what all democrats have been saying for a long time now.
Actually...this is the first time I can think of hearing an exact example. If I get a chance I'll do one also. It shouldn't take long since Fox does it constantly.

This department has a long history of civil rights abuses. This is one of those places that, for them, life will always be Birmingham Al. in the 60's. These guys don't even have dashcams. What does that say?

You're not using ghetto math. 3 colored guys plus a colored cop equals an incident no jungle rat cares about.

If you were to give this some real thought, if possible talk with someone about it, and truly see what is happening with people and Fox news, this is what you would conclude:

People who would watch a show such as Fox news or listen to someone like Rush Limpbrow in earnest could not possibly have an I.Q. high enough to finish high school! YET, they do exist. I find this to be a considerable enigma. It is a simple situation. A TV news show that is totally bias toward the right. The only odd part involved in that is the show claims to be fair and unbiased. What makes that odd is that a vast number of people believe what they are told rather then their own eyes. I realize that none of this is new to anyone but I am recounting this enigma at a time far past any reasonable persons ability to decipher truth from fiction.
So what is driving this to continue? Why is it continuing? And in light of this event one must ask themselves, is this the phenomena that has driven religion throughout history? Fox news has brought me to the point of asking myself;

IS THERE A GOD!!!

Are the looters paying for damages they did like the police if found guilty?
