Again, Faux news has been caught red handed selectively editing a news clip to make it more palatable to their lesser informed audience. This is old news to some, but to others, it may be the first time you have seen it done. This time, Faux News edited a clip of President Obama's speech at a June 26 campaign event in Atlanta.

Fair and balanced ? Far from it. If the "Liberal Media" is caught doing this, conservatives would and have jumped all over the offenders ... why is this the only place I have seen this occurrence mentioned ?

Nice catch but the simple

Nice catch but the simple fact is they all do it to some extent. One reason that I watch shows on both sides of the ideological divide.

I don't watch any of that

I don't watch any of that crap anymore.  Stories are formatted now to raise eyebrows.  It's stupid and shallow.  Where have all the professional journalists gone?
