Fox News loves to point fingers at the so-called "liberal mainstream media" for being too credulous, especially now over the Manti Te'o hoax. So where were Fox's journalistic skills when the NRA attacked President Obama as an "elite hypocrite" whose own children go to a school with 11 armed guards, while trying to restrict guns elsewhere? Answer: nowhere to be found - just like those mythical armed guards at the Obama daughters' school. The Washington Post did some real fact checking and guess what? That NRA ad that Hannity gushed over got it wrong. I haven't seen a correction anywhere else on Fox, either.
As Karoli at Crooks and Liars noted, the fake story about the armed guards seems to have originated from Breitbart.com.
The NRA preserves the slave mentality:
LaPierre, the overseer of the new plantation.
And did I miss something on the WP article? Because I saw nothing of secret service agents or armed guards in your article. It just says that the school is a popular choice for how good it’s security is. Nothing about them being armed.
However, in this one (which I’m sure you read), they reference to articles that say no, they don’t carry:
I went to your WaPo link and there was no mention at all of armed guards in it.
And the Washington Post made mention of it in 2008:
Note that I said “people,” not “Fox News viewers.” Huge difference.
To paraphrase commenter “King Cranky” in the C&L article link:
“Like Mitt Romney’s campaign, neither the NRA nor Fox News will be dictated to by fact-checkers.”
