Fox & Friends Misleads Viewers: Blames Dems for 9/11 Health Bill Delay (Video)
December 22, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—The dim-witted crew of Fox & Friends were particularly odious this morning, as they purposely misled viewers about why the 9/11 health bill was being held up. In the Bizarro world and alternate fact-free universe of the Republican propaganda hacks at Fox News, our 9/11 heroes are being denied the help they need because of a “Democratically controlled Congress.” They neglected to mention that EVERY single Republican member of the Senate filibustered the measure, while they held Americans hostage to their demands for tax cuts for the rich.
Co-host and buffoon Steve Doocy attributed the delay in passing the Zadroga 9/11 health bill to Democrats in the House. The “Democratic House killed” the bill in July,” said Doocy. He neglected to tell his low-information viewers that House Republicans blocked the bill in July, attacking it as a “slush fund” that they said would allow 9/11 scammers to raid it.
How despicable, right? Well, Doocy conveniently forgot to mention that part.
Doocy also wrongly said the bill was not paid for. It has ALWAYS been paid for, But Republicans answering to their corporate masters at the US Chamber of Commerce, objected to closing a tax loophole on foreign companies operating in the US.
No wonder a recent poll found that frequent Fox News viewers were the stupidest people on the planet.
