Fox Accuses Obama of Giving Part of Arizona Back to Mexico



Straight from the "We can't make this stuff up" file, Fox News has accused President Obama of giving Arizona back to Mexico. Yes, you read right. The network known for being extremely free with their facts is under fire for allegedly making up stuff about the president, again. During an America Live report, guest host Shannon Bream made the following statement, "A massive stretch of Arizona now off limits to Americans. Critics say the administration is, in effect, giving a major strip of the Southwest back to Mexico." According to Bonnie Swarbrick, the public information officer for the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in Arizona, the "massive stretch" of land is about five miles square,  and has been closed since 2006. Five square miles is not massive and he wasn't elected until 2008, so how is this his fault? Really Fox, really?
