    Fox Noise caught in yet another LIE

    Posted by Mark NC on June 20, 2014 at 10:48 am. 3 Comments :
    In yet another example of journalistic malpractice, the folks at Fox News broadcast a number of reports that got the most significant facts completely wrong. In order to do so, they relied on the assertions of a single, uncorroborated account, and failed to do the most basic follow-up with the people in a position to know.

    Shameless self-promotion…

    The latest lie-riddled reporting on Fox concerned the circumstances of the capture and release of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Fox and other conservative media outlets are endeavoring to place the responsibility for Baghdadi’s brutal march through Iraq on President Obama. Representative commentaries include these by Fox hosts Jeanine Pirro and Megyn Kelly:

    Pirro: The head of this band of savages is a man by the name of Abu al-Baghdadi. The new Osama Bin Laden. A man released by Obama in 2009, who started ISIS a year later.
    Kelly: We are also learning more about the leader of the terror group, a man described as the new Bin Laden, the heir to Bin Laden. It turns out he had been in U.S. custody until 2009, over in Iraq, when he was then turned over to the Iraqi government as part of our troop drawdown. And then he was released.
    On Pirro’s Saturday program she led into the subject with a mouth-foaming harangue about Obama’s “feckless” leadership and socialist designs on America. On Kelly’s primetime program she interviewed Col. Kenneth King who claimed to have been present when Baghdadi was transferred from the custody of U.S. forces to the Iraqis, who later allegedly released him to go on to form ISIS. However, an investigation by PolitiFact uncovered a very different story, confirmed by the Defense Department, and branding the Fox report as “false.”

    “Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’ was held as a ‘civilian internee’ by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “He was held at Camp Bucca. A Combined Review and Release Board recommended ‘unconditional release’ of this detainee and he was released from U.S. custody shortly thereafter. We have no record of him being held at any other time.”
    Since the right-wing is so intent on assigning blame for Baghdadi’s campaign of terror on the president who was in office when he was set free, then according to their logic it is all Bush’s fault. But don’t expect Fox News to report the facts as laid out by actual journalists. They won’t even report the comments of their own witness, Col. King, who appeared on another network (ABC) and admitted that he “could be mistaken.” It turns out that he never knew the name of the man he presumed to be Baghdadi, he just thought there was a resemblance to the man he encountered. Nor will they report Col. King’s remarks to the Daily Beast where he downplayed the threat posed by Baghdadi, saying that “He was a bad dude, but he wasn’t the worst of the worst.”

    PolitiFact went on to note that, even if Col. King’s account were correct, and Baghdadi was still in custody in 2009, Obama still could not be held to blame for Baghdadi’s release. The terms of the Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq required the U.S. to turn over all prisoners to the custody of Iraq’s criminal system. That agreement was negotiated and agreed to by the Bush administration in 2008.

    So virtually everything reported by Fox News was wrong. And, not surprisingly, all of the misinformation leaned toward blaming President Obama for the mistakes of President Bush. It’a pattern that is all too familiar. Now that the truth has been revealed and confirmed, we can expect Fox to issue a correction at the earliest opportunity. And if you believe that you are probably already a dimwitted, gullible disciple of the Fox Disinformation Society.

    • Here's a thread with a redundant title!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Fox news is just plain garbage it will be gone within 10 years as their viewership is dying at an alarming rate.

    • Amusing responses. This is so typical of the arrogance of the Libroids. Somehow others lies are worse than theirs. How self indulgent do you need to be to even think that way?

      • Asian American Journalism Organization Calls On Fox News To Apologize For 'Islamophobia'

        The Huffington Post  | By Catherine Taibi | 8/28/2014

        The Asian American Journalists Association has called on Fox News to apologize for its recent segment on ISIS and the murder of US journalist James Foley.

        In a letter posted to the organizations website, AAJA took serious issue with a recent discussion on "The Five" about the violent actions of the terrorist group ISIS. During the segment, co-host Andrea Tantaros spoke about Muslims, Islam and ISIS interchangeably.

        “They’ve been doing this for hundreds and hundreds of years if you study the history of Islam,” she said. "This isn't a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head."

        AAJA called the comments "alarming," "inflammatory" and accused the network of perpetuating "Islamophobia."

        "AAJA calls for Tantaros and Fox News to apologize for the irresponsible, inflammatory statements," the organization said. "We also call on Fox News to discourage its journalists from making blanket comments that serve to perpetuate hate and Islamophobia. Muslims and Islam are not interchangeable terms with terrorists or ISIS. We in the media know better and must be vigilant in our choice of words."

      • REPUBLICAN SENATOR TOM COBURN ISN'T EXACTLY A FAN OF FOX NEWS

        The Huffington Poost | By Katherine Fung | 08/15/2014

        Republican Senator Tom Coburn called out Fox News during a talk on Wednesday, saying that some of the network's shows are exactly the opposite of what the network claims to be in its "Fair and Balanced" slogan.

        “There are certain shows on Fox I can’t watch,” Coburn told audience members at Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma. “Because they’re totally not fair and totally not balanced. What I want is, I want all the information in which I can make the best decision.”

        BuzzFeed reported that he was asked how he would "fix" the media if he were in charge of it. Coburn also said that "the truth is somewhere in between" Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, and lamented the current state of journalism as a whole.

        His comments about media start at the 23:40 mark in the video above.

        Coburn has criticized Fox News in the past, and several Fox News hosts returned the fire. In 2010, for example, Coburn told voters to not "be biased by Fox News."

        It's easy to achieve some level of arrogance when the RWNJs and media sources like Fox show over and over again that they will go to totally unprecedented new and ridiculous levels of constant lying for selfishly narrow and primarily partisan gains that are quite detrimental to the country as a whole.

    • Blue, Why don't you tell this board ya "amerikans against tea the party, or is it "news korpes" version of the truth on how " Dr. Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim", aka Bhagdadi got released by Bush, ya brainless parroting? Please feel free to put ya tom foolery on display. BTW, how do ya like ya new found phraseology, is that how ya shrink diagnosed the effects of ya pot head maladies?.....hehehehehehe

      Funny You will not parrot the NYT story about Phil M. "insider trading" of "klorox" before the "Ikhan buyout" bid. You are indeed a mindless tool.

    • What is it when BO lies to everyone to get his way

    • "De Blasio was talking about the latest security concern for the FBI and the NYPD. Al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Sunni militant group that is waging a new war in Iraq, had some chilling final words when he walked away from a U.S. detention camp in 2009.
      “I’ll see you guys in New York,” he said."

      Is this a lie Blue!?

    • "But the narrative solidifies in 2005, when he was captured by American forces and spent the next four years a prisoner in the Bucca Camp in southern Iraq. It was from his time there that the first known picture of Baghdadi emerged. And it’s also there, reports Al-Monitor, that he possibly met and trained with key al-Qaeda fighters."

    • Blue, is it really a lie or less then diligent reporting? Seems to me that in this 24 hour, have to be first with it, news world, just about every news outlet has suffered from this type of mistake.

    • 5 thumbs down and now rebuttals. It must suck to have such cognitive dissonance about nearly everything. Contards are sheep being ruled by wolves that are owned by pigs.

    • crickets from the monkey house, lol
