Today's Death Threat On Fox Nation: For Rep. Jim McDermott
Reported by Ellen - April 1, 2011 -
It's clear, even from the little snip of a seven-second video that Fox Nation used to inflame its readers, that when Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott said he was "tired of reading the Constitution," he meant he was tired of House Republican's gimmicks, not that he was tired of the Constitution. But, predictably, Fox Nation, the website that is as "fair and balanced" as Fox News, did its best to suggest the opposite. The result? At least one reader thought it was grounds to kill McDermott. As for the moderators, it's now four hours later and they either haven't noticed or haven't cared. Screen grab after the jump.
In case you don't believe me, RealClearPolitics included the next line from McDermott: "When are we going to see anything having to do with job creation?" But given how much Fox Nation readers love to talk about killing Democrats and liberals - and how Fox Nation editors don't seem to mind that kind of talk - I guess nobody over there needed any stinking context.
