Fox “News” Stoops to Unimaginable New Low
James Rosen, who serves as Fox’s “Chief Washington Correspondent,” just posted a lengthy article titled: “EXCLUSIVE: Bergdahl Declared Jihad in Captivity, Secret Documents Show.”
Here’s the first paragraph:
U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.
Really? How about if I say I saw James Rosen taking a stabbing someone in the middle of 5th Avenue in NYC on, oh, say March 4, 2014 (“purported witness”) and I write that information down (“secret document”) and I hand it to a reporter somewhere. Is it reasonable for me to expect that reporter will report what I supposedly saw and wrote down without so much as investigating whether I can prove I was in NYC on March 4? No, at least not until now.
That’s what happened here.
It’s clear that Fox is so crazed to destroy President Obama / Democrats (don’t forget, we’ve got midterms coming up) it’s lost whatever semblance of its journalistic mind it possessed before now. It’s goal isn’t to inform, it is to shovel out as much propaganda as it possibly can, as fast as it can.
