It’s hard to believe that the Fox Nation web site is published by an organization that considers itself a news enterprise. Anyone who takes the site seriously is gravely in danger of becoming irreversibly idiotized. For example, this morning the Fox Nationalists posted this item declaring that “Stocks Tumble Worldwide After Obama Speech.”
The implication, of course, is that Obama’s speech had something to do with the stocks tumbling. However, despite the deceptive headline, the article states that it is actually the “speculation congress won’t pass” the President’s proposals that contributed to the market decline. In other words, the markets favor Obama’s plan and want it to be implemented. So a more honest headline would have read “Stocks Tumble Worldwide Due To Republican Obstructionism.” But then again, if you’re looking for a more honest headline then you probably wouldn’t be reading Fox Nation in the first place.
