Description on YouTube:
News bulletins around the world have been following Russia's election rallies. But one channel stands out - America's Fox News has been showing streets ablaze, violent clashes and firebombs thrown at security officers, but with one major problem - the images are not from Russia, they're from Greece!


Is there any kind of agency that can point out the fact that Fox News is not Real News but a Propaganda machine just like the one a German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda,Paul Joseph Goebbels, used in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945

1. This is the same ClusterFox that used a video of a protest in Florida
and claimed it was Wisconsin.

8. Sure do
I kept hoping that being around so many palm trees would make me feel warmer, but it didn't work. :D

10. Lol, I love those photos. People are so creative and funny.
:rofl:

And Fox strikes again. They also put Libya where Iraq belongs on a map. Faux news is not a joke.

I think they should be required to post a disclaimer that they are the TV version of the Onion, only not as clever and funny. It is a crime to allow people to think they are for real.

3. Wouldnt be surprised

If they used old newsreel of the Russian revolution and claimed it was the democratic national convention.


Of course they will admit, 3am about 2 months later, that a technical error was made and they apologize for the mistake.

The zombies that are Fox News fans will believe the original lie until they die.

4. In Fox's defense, they didn't drop the ball
That is what they always do. If they reporters did their work, they would have known that Fox makes no attempt to report the facts. I will look forward to seeing this video again, used as coverage for an upcoming occupy event.

6. What is new? Fox News lies. We all know that.
CNN made a mistake and apologized I gather. (That was unclear from the report.) Maybe this is news in Russia, but it certainly isn't in the US.

11. Fox is in a class by itself
But other than mentioning them by name at the beginning because it was their footage they were showing, the name Fox is not mentioned again. It morphs into "mass media" . Why not call Fox out as a deliberate liar and fabricator of facts, a station that is nowhere connected to factual news, whose viewers have been proven to be more ignorant of the news than people who don't watch news shows at all??

13. I strongly agree
AND, pundits from other news agencies (RT included) would do well to avoid labeling FOX 'sloppy,' since FOX intentionally misrepresents. They are quite skilled at creating propaganda, hence their viewers have a world view that does not correspond with reality.

16. They also show an instance of CNN doing the same thing.
I understand why people hate fox news, but the other networks aren't much better. CNN is just about the same, and none of them will make someone informed about the news if it's their primary source.

22. Fox may be in its own class, but it is polluting the general discourse
Like it or not, what the other corporate media sources do and don't cover is heavily influenced by Fox.
It is a mistake to view Fox as sort of a "lone nut."

28. True, but
Fox takes distortion and lies about the news to new heights and should be called out on it each and every time. It doesn't get the others off the hook though.

15. Fox News lies.
In addition to lying I have found them to be guilty of pretty much anything and everything they accuse others of. I look forward to the day when people are ashamed to admit they watch Fox News.

FAUX is not a news organization. Just a bunch of Nazi like white folks with their aganda set along the lines of republicans.

RT is just as bias and agenda driven as Fox News. There was nothing so called about the orange revolution. And there was nothing coincidental about the dioxin poisoning of Viktor Yushchenko. Viktor Yushchenko who was running against the Russia backed Viktor Yanukovych 2004. Yeah, Fox News did it's usually fake riot footage. But RT is spinning that just as hard to make it look like everything is copacetic in Russia, which it is not. And trying by extend to infer that Russia's interference in the elections of country formally in the USSR is not resisted by the Ukrainians and Georgians. RT is disrespecting the people who stood up in the orange and rose revolutions as much as Fox News disrespects the OWS.

RT may provide a valuable alternative perspective for some news stories, but when it comes to covering the internal politics of Russia, they have a clear agenda.

19. FOX knows its audience
Most of the FOX viewership won't know the difference between Moscow and Greece. The rest won't care that there's a difference between Moscow and Greece. FOX is merely pornography for the politically frightened.

20. Sigh
Episode #1,437,364 of this same stuff. How long until the FCC starts to look at their licenses? Bias is one thing, I expect bias, but the false videos and falsified graphs and misidentified politician party affiliation over and over is criminal. It's not honest mistakes or you wouldn't have dozens of incidents each day on FOX.

26. read that on the phone the other day
RT had them down as Bumbling Fox News putting people in t shirts in Moscow winter

one of the um adult models who lives there Ivana F*kalot supposedly will be taking part in the protests tomorrow in Moscow. Hey Adult models are people and voters too. I will worry for her though. Moscow adult models are not as well protected as American adult models (yall will say porn stars)

Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 04:33 PM by GreenTea

29. If Fox News was an actual news organization they would be doing 2 things:
1. Apologizing profusely for the error; and
2. Publicly firing one or more people who did this.

They are doing neither, which tells you everything about Fox News.

34. I'll trust RT's reporting on Russia's protests
as soon as I start to have faith in FOX's reporting on the Occupy protests.

Which is to say... I won't. And those who do should feel ashamed.
