Fox shows it's colors

“If President Obama gets his way, the special voting rights of some of America’s finest will be eliminated,” host Shannon Bream said Friday night. “The campaign is suing to keep members of the military from having extra time to cast their ballots in one key battleground state.”
This of course, is a lie. Ohio's law as it currently stands, creates a tiered system of voting privileges...instead of the same voting window for all Ohio citizens.

The Obama Administration argues in the suit that “This disparate treatment violates 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and can be rectified by the Court enjoining enforcement of statutory changes that eliminate early in-person voting for most Ohioans during the three days before an election”.

Is Fox guilty of misreporting the facts of the case, purely out of poor journalism........or has their role as the GOPs media wing become even more blatant? I decide.



  1. I think we'll be hearing more about this. Raw Story is a lefty site, so I'm holding judgment until I hear both sides.

  2. I hope we do hear more about it....and you are correct about Raw Story, though the portion I cited is Fox's own transcript and the legal suit; as opposed to the writers commentary.
