How Fox News Changes Facts

Neil Cavuto is lashing out at the media for not covering the Tea Bagging protests. Cavuto repeatedly reminds his viewers that Fox News covered Louis Farrakhan's Million Man March. Apparently, Fox News knows the secrets to time travel. The Million Man March occurred on October 16, 1995. Fox News made it's debut October 7, 1996. Amanda Terkel compiled Cavuto's repeated claims that Fox News covered the Million Man March.


– Apparently, these populist protests don’t count much for them. Millions concerned they’re being taxed and feed to death counts even less for them. But a Million March March that turns out to be well shy of a million men — even half a million men — does count for them. We covered the follow-up marches to that Million Man March, because no matter the number, it was a big deal. [Fox News, 4/9/09]

– We do not pick and choose these rallies and protests. We were there for the Million Man March, even though, as I pointed out, it turned out to be well shy of a million men. [Fox Business, 4/11/09]

– Because like in the Million Man March, it didn’t turn out to be a million men, but it got covered. [Fox Business, 4/11/09]

– You seem to pick and choose what events and protests were worthy. Million Man March, worthy, even though it wasn’t a million men, it was half a million. We covered that because we thought it had a worthy message too. [Fox News, 4/8/09]

Fox News: fair and balanced time traveling coverage.

Side note: it really say something when Charles Johnson thinks the Tea Baggers are saying "deranged stuff."
