Misleading Fox Nation Headline Is Obama Smear

Reported by Priscilla - May 23, 2009 -

One wonders if the writers at Fox Nation are working under the assumption that their readers won’t actually link to the article. That seemed to have been the modus operandi with earlier headlines (here and here), which had nothing to do with the actual substance of the linked articles; but rather, attempted to cast Obama in a negative light. The newest headline/smear is “Why is Obama Dissing POW/MIA Group?” The article (Washington Times) reports that the Rolling Thunder veterans motorcycle group might not be meeting with Obama at the White House – but that isn’t definite. Meanwhile, they are scheduled to meet with an administration official and (separately) with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki. The article states that “Obama has not shirked his outreach to the military, however. He met Thursday with 50 wounded soldiers and their families, and helped to assemble packages destined for overseas delivery…” There is nothing in the article to suggest that Obama is being disrespectful of veterans. The only “dissing” is that directed towards Obama by Fox Nation. The headline is a lie; but in Fox Nation, seeing is believing!
