Fox Nation joined the Fox News Sore Losers Club today with a blaring - and misleading - headline: OBAMA REELECTION TRIGGERS MASSIVE LAYOFFS ACROSS AMERICA. But it turns out the facts are well, different.
The article really only focuses on one coal company which is run by a Romney activist. As Think Progress reported,
The coal CEO laying off workers is the same one who forced his workers to attend a Romney rally in August. Those workers had to forgo a day of pay in order to attend the rally. In the past, (CEO) Murray has also forced his workers to make campaign donations to Republicans.
On the side of the page, Fox lists a number of what it calls "related stories" about other companies laying off with a blatant - but unproven - suggestion that Obama's re-election is to blame. As Think Progress also noted:
There are hiring and firings at firms all the time, and Fox presented no evidence that these layoffs were either related to the election or unusual in any sense.
Oh, wait- of course they won’t.
Meanwhile, the lives of their base will be getting incrementally better because we did ALL the hard work of saving the country, and we’re compassionate enough to allow them to live in it.
Did we really expect a “Thank-you!”?
And, in Foxspeak, they’re called “job creators.”
“Welcome to Planet Wingnut! Enjoy your stay!”
They are talking about the gNOpig and teabagged party zombies.
From now on, they will bit*ch, moan, and whine for food.
