On the one-year anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Fox & Friends purported to analyze the results of the bill and repeatedly shed doubt on the impact of the stimulus on the employment situation. But Fox & Friends ignored independent analyses of the stimulus, including those conducted by Moody's Economy.com and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, that said the measure raised employment by 1 to 2.4 million jobs by the end of 2009.
In reports on Fox & Friends and America's Newsroom, Fox News advanced the false House Republican claim that "[t]he CBO estimates that health insurance premiums would be nearly $5,000 cheaper under the Republican reforms than the Democratic ones," in Fox News' Martha MacCallum's words. But the GOP's calculation ignores the premium caps included in the Democrats' plan to assist middle-income families purchasing insurance through the exchange, and the purported premium savings that Fox News highlighted apply to only 5 percent of private premiums.
Fox News correspondent Caroline Shively asserted that "[Sen. Barack] Obama says 'Enough already. There's nothing wrong with being a Muslim, but I have been a Christian for two decades now.' " In fact, Obama has said that he has "always been a Christian," and has also repeatedly stated that he has never been a Muslim or ever practiced Islam.
