About the clip, Sean Hannity replied: “Although it pains me to say this, Jon Stewart, Comedy Central, he was right… It was an inadvertent mistake but a mistake nonetheless.”
Then, a week later, FOX repeats the same mistake. This time involving Sarah Palin’s book-signing:
As footage rolled of a smiling and waving Palin amidst a throng of fans, Jarrett noted that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate is “continuing to draw huge crowds while she’s promoting her brand-new book,” adding that the images being shown were “some of the pictures just coming in to us…. The lines earlier had formed this morning.”
Actually, they used footage of a 2008 McCain/Palin campaign rally, suggesting that it was footage of people turning-out for her book-signing in Grand Rapids, MI.
Had this been a democrat and another news-media outlet, FOX news would decry it as obvious political manipulation by the media to build-up public perception of a democrat.
