On Sunday, a Fox News reporter decided to cover “marchers” in Denver. Thinking he was witnessing “Obama protesters”, he decided to take his camera into the crowd. When he approached the marchers he was greeted with “F**k you” or ignored. Well, the reporter, not the brightest lightbulb, claimed that the marchers didn’t believe in freedom of speech because they wouldn’t talk to them. Huh? Freedom of speech also means the freedom NOT to speak. Eventually, the marchers surrounded this reporter and started yelling “F**k Fox News”.
You can see for yourself in this video.
Take note: The reporter refers to the marchers as “Anti Obama protesters”. The truth is that these marchers are anti-war and anti-torture protesters.
You may be wondering just what does that have to do with the Associated Press (AP)? The connection is Karl Rove. Seems like Ron Fournier, chief DC correspondent for the AP has a friendship with Karl Rove. This explains Fournier baseless attack on Barack Obama’s choice for VP saying that it highlights Obama’s lack of confidence. That’s an odd statement considering a person lacking confidence would not have been president of the Harvard Law Review nor would this person have been elected to the Senate. Looks like Fournier doesn’t know what he is talking about.
Media Matters has more on Fournier and his good pal Karl Rove.
I’ll never understand how anyone can trust Karl Rove or George W Bush or Dick Cheney or John McCain. Everyone of these people are “users” and “takers” and would quickly turn on each other if there was money to be made or power to be grabbed.
We must stand up to this lying media. A lot has changed since 2004 and we must make sure that we take our country back and speak truth to these lies.
