Today’s Fox and Friends Pushes Yesterday’s Debunked Story To Attack POTUS

I’ll often poke around the Media Matters to see what I’ve missed when I’m not watching Fox News. Yesterday I couldn’t help but run across an article titled, “Wash. Post's Sargent Deflates Story That White House Pressured Ford Over Ads,” quoting a Greg Sargent article. That’s why I was so surprised to hear FBN reporter Charles Gasparino [who looks a lot older on-air than his FBN bio page. Who is he trying to kid?] say the exact opposite on Fox and Friends this morning. Here’s Sargent yesterday, who did that thing called “reporting:”

The Secret Service Discovers The Truth About Fox News

As a newish Twitter user I still marvel at the conversations and information that sweep through the Twitocracy. Today I was able to see pictures of the Space Shuttle Discovery docking, and Commander Mark Kelly’s arrival, on the International Space Station tweeted from space by astronauts within minutes of it occurring.

Fox News "Democrats" Schoen And Caddell Urge Obama Not To Run In 2012

Fox News Democratic contributors Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell can always be counted on to bash Democrats with Republican talking points while dressed in faux Democratic clothing. But the two have outdone themselves in a Washington Post editorial today in which they urge President Obama to achieve greatness by not running for re-election. It's just a coincidence, I suppose, that their thoughts are in synch with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's "top political priority" over the next two years - preventing President Obama from getting a second term. It's also just a coincidence, I'm sure, that this op-ed should come out on the eve of conservative David Horowitz' "Restoration Weekend" where Schoen and Caddell will appear with the likes of Michele Bachmann, Ann Coulter, Ralph Peters and Pastor John Hagee. Furthermore, Schoen actively helped fundraise for a Republican candidate last month.
