Fox Attack: Right-Wing Blabbers Alter Images of Times Reporters

Speaking of Fox News (see last post), the network today lived up to its reputation for putting partisanship ahead of the facts when it broadcast digitally altered photos of two New York Times reporters. 

The Huffington Post has the whole sorry story, complete with original and altered photos of the reporters, who were—Fox claims—involved in a "hit piece" on the network and its declining influence.  In FoxSpeak, "hit piece" appears to be any story that is critical of Fox News.  

We don't mind Fox News defending itself. But Fox can't seem to do this honestly. Instead, they play games with facts and images, distorting reality to make a dishonest point. Come to think of it, that's the whole purpose of Fox News.

Fox News might as well Photoshop in the horns, mustaches and goatees. Couldn't hurt their credibility, which is nil.
