Fox News Again Apologizes for Obama Jabs

Jun 13, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Fox News Channel apologized for the third time in three weeks for what it said was poor judgment related to coverage of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, the New York Times reports. The most recent incident involved a headline referring to Mr. Obama’s wife, Michelle, as “Obama’s baby mama.” Previous incidents involved an anchor calling the Obamas’ fist bump a “terrorist fist jab” and an analyst joking about the possibility about the candidate being shot to death, the newspaper says.

  1. Maybe FOX will wise up at the top, can Roger Ailes, get a real news person to run it and then set the wise-guy on air types straight to get on with reporting the news, the real news.

  2. You’re joking right?
    They have absolutely NO interest in reporting “real news.” Their entire purpose in life is to be an outlet to get the American people on board, (a propaganda source if you will,) for a neo-con agenda of world domination at all cost. They have nothing to gain and everything to lose by reporting the “real news.”
    After the Iraq war and occupation was started, an independent study found that those who watched the FOX News Channel as their main source of news and information were more misinformed than those getting their world news from any other source.
    Hell, the majority of FOX News viewers still think Sadaam Husein was responsible for the 9/11 attacks! Get a clue…

  3. Those wacky FOX folk! Always the kidders (remember that stuff preceding the Iraq War? Hilarious!) Lighten up, people. Our economy is owned by foreign countries anyway.

  4. We all know that FOX is a xenophobic-GOP-Big-Oil shill. To consider them a news outlet is really a waste of time. I take news delivered by UFO networks more seriously than FOX.

  5. Everyone in the country into hip hop does the fist bump, at least every young man does. If the FOX guys think that’s a terrorist fist jab or whatever then they really must be on another planet!
