Fox News: Mark Sanford is a “Democrat”!

Talk about sloppy journalism…  Those folks over at Fox – check it out!


They put a “D” behind his name!!!

You know – it seems like this happens at Fox News a lot!  They keep bungling up the “crawl” and putting a “D” behind the Republican’s name trying to pretend it was an innocent mistake!

Remember this?

Or this little gem from February 2008, when McCain still was hated Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the Republican Thugs:

Brad Friedman said:

Fox “News”, of course, tells Newser (re: the Foley Flubbed-Photo) that “this was gross incompetence by a producer — nothing more.” In the Foley matter, they said “it was an honest mistake,” and thus never bothered to issue an on-air correction or apology.

Here’s one where Fox News mis-identifies Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) as a Republican and Lincoln Chaffe (R-R.I.) as a Democrat.

With these repeated mistakes, one would think that an intelligent news agency would simply terminate the employ of incompetancy like this.  There’s an obvious track-record of screwing up the political party identity – perhaps someone over at Fox News’ Human Resources should step in and restore Fox News’ good name as a professional news source!

fruitfly21Of course; Fox News could admit to being an amateur news agency.  Much better appeal than acting like they’re  being managed by junior high children who are more concerned with acne medication than they are with any sort of professional journalism with a story to tell its audience.

  2. I am curious whether there are stats for the other networks regarding this type of mistake. It seems to plague Fox more than others, afaik.
