Is this a Lie, or Cameron's Interpretation?

Reported by Melanie - July 7, 2004 -

On July 7, 2004 at 1:00 p.m. ET on Dayside w/Linda Vester, Carl Cameron opened the show with a report on the Kerry/Edwards campaign from Dayton, Ohio. Vester initially asked Cameron what kind of reception Kerry and Edwards got and Cameron said "Oh, it was a glowing reception," (with a sarcastic emphasis on the word "glowing"). Cameron said John Edwards "went after the Bush administration" and went "up one side" and down the other.

COMMENT: I saw Edwards' speech. He did not go "up one side" and down the other or go "after the Bush administration." He talked about what he and Kerry want to do. Cameron painted a picture that was quite different from reality. Anyone who gets their news solely from Fox, however, will never know that.
