Fox "News" Caught Spinning Half-Truths... Again!

Thanks to Media Matters For America for this one:

Fox News Channel has been caught using both falsehood and cropped video footage to hype unsolicited e-mail claims.

"Even while asserting that he wasn't suggesting anything "nefarious" on the part of the White House, Fox News' Major Garrett did just that while recounting an exchange he had with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, in which Garrett relayed complaints from people who, according to Garrett, said they received an unsolicited email from the White House. Garrett based his report in part on the false claim that it was Gibbs who first used the word "list" in reference to people receiving the email, when in fact it was Garrett himself who introduced the notion of a targeted "list" of recipients -- as well as the actual word -- into the exchange."

Article and video are here.

Also, for the last time... there are no "death panels" waiting to unplug your grandparents from life support!
