Fox Nation Hates Michelle Obama

Reported by Ellen - August 20, 2009 -

Fox Nation made a disingenuous effort at neutrality in reporting on Michelle Obama's shorts "controversy." The article it linked to pooh-poohed those who were offended by a first lady in shorts on vacation at the Grand Canyon and even went so far as to note that the shorts were "discrete, classic shorts." But that must have been too favorable a report for those "America lovers" at Fox Nation. Instead of noting that the point of their own article was the pettiness of the criticism against Obama, Fox Nation presented it as a genuine controversy with its headline, "Michelle Obama in Shorts Controversy." The rather predictable result was a slew of hate-filled comments about Mrs. Obama and her looks. Screen grabs after the jump. (H/T reader Marco)
