FOX News Edits Clip Misleadingly To Smear Biden

Reported by Ellen - March 16, 2009 -

Think Progress reports that in its enthusiasm to smear the Obama administration, FOX News misleadingly edited a clip of then-Vice Presidential candidate Joseph Biden quoting John McCain saying the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" and presented it as "proof" that Biden currently holds that view. Think Progress noted, "Apparently, dishonestly rewriting history is perfectly acceptable at Fox now." UPDATED: 3/17/09 FOX's Martha MacCallum apologizes for "inadvertent" error. But it's hard to imagine how this could happen unless FOX News was deliberately trying to denigrate Biden.
