Fox News' Dishonest Attempt To Say Bloomberg Blamed Obamacare For Times Square Bomb

Reported by Ellen - May 4, 2010 -

Fox Nation found a unique interpretation of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's quote: "If I had to guess, 25¢, this would be exactly that, somebody who’s homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like ah, the health care bill or something. It could be anything!” Fox Nation turned that quote into the misleading headline, "Bloomberg: NYC Bomber Probably Didn't Like Obamacare." H/T to our former colleague, Melanie, who caught this one on her Say It Ain't So Already blog.

Not only is "fair and balanced" Fox Nation still running with this distortion, it's still one of their top headlines.

Note: I originally thought that Fox Nation was trying to suggest that an Obamacare opponent was responsible for the bomb. Later, after seeing numerous segments attacking Bloomberg on Fox, I realized the point of the post was to attack Bloomberg.
