SHOCKER! Defending Itself Against Lying, Fox “News” Lies

Reported by Aunty Em - December 19, 2010 -

The Blogosphere was having a lot of fun this week with the so-called Fox “News” Channel. This after a scientific study proved that so-called Fox “News” viewers were the least informed. When asked about the study, senior VP Michael Clemente also proved why the so-called Fox “News” audience is the least informed: He lied to the so-called librul NYT.

Brian Stelter contacted Fox News:

In a statement, Michael Clemente, who is the senior vice president of news editorial for the network, said: “The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having ‘Students Who Study The Least’ and being the ‘Best Party School’ – given these fine academic distinctions, we’ll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was ‘researched’ with.’”

The snark is what we’ve come to expect from Fox News, but where’s the lie? Also according to Stelter:

For the record, the Princeton Review says the University of Maryland ranks among the “Best Northeastern Colleges.” It was No. 19 on the Review’s list of “Best Party Schools.”
