Okay, not that we didn't know that FOX was just an arm of the GOP, but you'd think they wouldn't be so blatant about it. Today, in a rant against the stimulus, FOX's Jon Scott just regurgitated a press release sent earlier today by the Senate Republican Communications Center. Media Matters busted them:


During the February 10 edition of Fox News' Happening Now, co-host Jon Scott claimed that "the Senate is expected to pass the $838 billion stimulus plan -- its version of it, anyway. We thought we'd take a look back at the bill, how it was born, and how it grew, and grew, and grew." In tracking how and when the bill purportedly "grew," Scott referenced seven dates, as on-screen graphics cited various news sources from those time periods. However, all of the sources and cost figures Scott cited, as well as the accompanying on-screen text, were also contained in a February 10 press release issued by the Senate Republican Communications Center. One on-screen graphic during the segment even repeated a typo from the GOP document, further confirming that Scott was simply reading from a Republican press release. The Fox News graphic and the GOP press release both claimed that a Wall Street Journal report that the stimulus package could reach "$775 billion over two years" was published on December 19, 2009 [emphasis added].


Pathetic. If anyone from FOX ever read a real paper or watched another network, they might become aware of the dire economic predicament our country is in. But, they'd never report it, because FOX, as an arm of the GOP, is part of the reason we're in this mess.
