--actually, FOX's anonymous accusation was a strong charge that should have been attributed ON THE RECORD if they were a responsible news outlet. . And verified by a second source... (ya know like REAL reporters did back int he day? --"All the Kings Men" against Nixon) Otherwise they're just a pro-cop propaganda outlet.
I can't believe Megyn, others, and Hannity shilling to defend police on the air without knowing the facts and before the trial. What's the hurry? It's like they convicted the administration without knowing the facts about Benghazi--all to be discredited by Republicans in Congress who found nothing after months of 'investigating.'
How can Fox faces sleep at night shilling for their right wing companies point of view? No doubt asking the questions they want asked, making side comments they want made. Everything you should have learned in journalism school NOT to do!
Fox does a brazen attempt to discredit a dead victim with an unsubstantiated and unattributed report-- none of which has anything to do with his wrongful death.
And even now they raise all the discredited first night controversies, just to muddy up the waters and confused their viewers --- as of to create some reasonable doubt in viewer minds because of their one-sided reporting!
We saw the same thing with Fox's token black reporter on Thursday night, not listening as he interviewed, but just arguing with the crowd
And then after that superficial questioning, Hannity actually called his propaganda a 'good report.' The token black reporter was an outrageous attempt to incite those he was interviewing and ignoring their concerns. They told him over and over what they thought... but he just ignored them because it wasn't sensational enough and didn't follow FOX's thinking.
We're just seeing Fox do what they do so often. Convict people on the air with secret sources and innuendo. That's not justice or journalism. Thats grocery store tabloid stuff just like your owner Rupert Murdoch did back in London before they ran him out of the country and charged some of his people!
It's like they're selling our country and the people out for MONEY and sensation. A Kangaroo Court on cable TV! All the while they hide behind our revered 1st amendment.
Sadly this kid with the broken neck is dead so he can't sue Fox for defamation and force them to go public with their 'anonymous' source. Fox was more interested in protecting their SECRET SOURCE---which was both highly suspect and also too boring to listen to. It filled up Megyn's show, whether it made any sense to viewers or not.
Trashing the kid with a secret source to make Fox's moron viewers think he doesn't DESERVE humane treatment? Is THAT journalism or propaganda DISGUISED as Journalism?
Any reasonable person would conclude no matter WHAT he DID, he didn't deserve to have his neck broken in the back of a paddywagon. Please don't say YOU DON'T GET THIS? That is UTTERLY UNJUST IN AMERICA.
Why does FOX and the right take sides when the case is already headed to court?
Is Fox and the right just advocating that any black should be hanged from a tree? Is it racist or pro police, or pandering to their Southern redneck aging viewers and readers? Just WHO is actually playing the race card here?
Why don't they TEACH their viewers/ readers MORALITY rather than playing to their IMMORALITY for ratings?
Why don't they just calm down and let the justice system do what we pay them to do, rather than influence them like some trickster defense lawyer looking to impeach the victim on TV even before it goes to trial?
Is FOx and their Conservative site friends trying to turn viewers into a hanging mob...or do what's right. Teach them to respect our concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' in so many cases. And not just blindly trust police who clearly have sown they can't be blindedly trusted!
Fox's Hannity, was quick to say over and over that Ferguson's case wasn't about "Hands UP, Don't shoot" and "Black lives Matter." I agree, it wasn't an airtight case, with little forensics, no video and secret proceedings. They chose to ignore the larger issue so to discredit the protestors.
The same week, the older man IN NYC, murdered in video while the police got off with no charges...and the dutiful union defending their cops no matter what the video showed. Talk about a case of Rico racketeering! Hello Justice Department?
Looking more broadly, which is what blacks say so often they're doing, Fox chosen to ignore what blacks are saying...that it's LARGER than Ferguson. They just don't don't want that on their air because it contradicts their dogma, so they parry it and change the subject.
Who DO you work for, Fox?
Who wants this horrible national problem in so many cities dismissed so badly for you to sell out what little journalistic ethics you still have? Tell us, Megyn! Your loyal viewers deserve the truth.
