Newsbusters praises FOX segment that doctored Gore's comments

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Just in case there is anyone out there who still doesn't realize that the Media Research Center is a bunch of lying hacks, a post on the organization's "Newsbusters" blog should remove any doubt ...

Remember that FOX segment Friday night in which O'Reilly Factor guest host Laura Ingraham used doctored video to smear Al Gore? Media Matters exposed Igraham's dishonest attack later Friday night.

Yesterday afternoon, Newsbusters associate editor Noel Sheppard praised the segment for "Expos[ing] Gore's Global Warming Profit Motive." Sheppard ignored the fact that Igraham did so by doctoring video of Gore's congressional testimony.

Some days, I think MRC picked the perfect name for its blog. "Newsbusters" doesn't sound like a name for people who want journalism to be better, it sounds like a name people who want journalism to go away would choose.
