So...Fox News Is...Real Reporting Now?

Shucks. We didn't know there was any problem with Fox News to begin with...

It's the last day of 2009 and Fox News is turning over a new leaf.

They're focusing on hard news and reporting and going away from the divisive drivel that has done little to further dialogue. Three cheers for progress!

...Only problem here? They're the same old same. As Jed Lewison of Daily Kos points out, Fox's new ad campaign could not be further from the truth

1. Fox claimed an ABC broadcast from the White House was an unprecedented use of the Presidential residence...but when Bush was President, they had done the exact same thing.

2. Fox anchor Neil Cavuto fabricated attendance figures for a Tea Party rally -- and it was all caught on tape

3. Fox anchor Trace Gallagher falsely claimed that the Dow had fallen 56 points during an Obama speech. It actually went up 28 points (not that it would have been relevant even if it had gone down).

Happy New Year!
