Is Fox Nation Inadvertently Or Deliberately Negligent In Not Correcting Its Grossly Inaccurate Smear Of EPA Head Lisa Jackson?

The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson, recently stated that despite right-wing claims that “230,000 new EPA jack-booted thugs” were about to crack down on greenhouse emissions from sources such as Americans’ backyard grills and cows, the EPA was actually planning to exempt individuals and small businesses and go after larger emitters. But she was grossly misquoted by Red State (among others) as having called Republicans, “Those jack-booted thugs." "Fair and balanced" Fox Nation ran with the misquote without bothering to check the facts.

Huckabee and Cavuto Get It Wrong Promoting The Faux Fisker Finland Controversy

Cavuto On Business Panelists Sneer At Electric And Hybrid Cars

By Brian and Ellen

Yesterday (10/15/11), Cavuto on Business discussed Chevy's Spark, a new electric car. Guest Amilya Antonetti pretty much set the tone by saying, "They're trying to push this crazy green agenda with something that absolutely not listening to one thing that any American is saying." A statement like that is pretty funny given that her website boasts she is “one of the pioneers of the ‘human and Earth friendly’ movement and champion to bring ‘Green’ mainstream." I guess that’s only when she’s selling her own products, not selling her punditry on Fox News. But in addition to being a hypocrite, she’s kinda, sorta – well, wrong.
