Fox Nation Considers Obama "Reduced" By Spending Time With "Unemployed Union Workers"
Blog ››› ››› MELODY JOHNSON
An October 12 Fox Nation post highlighted an Associated Press story about President Obama sharing a beer with unemployed construction workers in Florida. But unlike the AP headline, Fox Nation declared that Obama was "Reduced to Holding Beer Summits with Unemployed Union Workers," suggesting that sharing a beer with a group of American workers would somehow be beneath the President. From Fox Nation:
Additionally, the AP article's headline (which Fox Nation demoted to a photo caption) as it appeared October 11 in The Washington Post was, "Obama raises a glass with unemployed construction workers in Florida, toasts 'to more jobs.' " The article makes no mention of Obama being "reduced" to spending time with them, or even that they were union workers.
Fox Nation has a history of manipulating headlines of other news outlets in order to twist stories to fit their right-wing bias, and today's example is no different.
