I believe Media Matters is an accurate site, but it certainly has a bias (deservedly so, imho) against Fox News. With that in mind, put this in the “interesting if true” category:
Fox News’ Special Report with Brit Hume showed an edited video clip of Rev. Joseph Lowery’s remarks at Coretta Scott King’s funeral, during which he mentioned the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Lowery’s remarks were greeted with 23 seconds of applause and a standing ovation, but the clip Fox News aired presented nine seconds of applause and little hint of the standing ovation without noting that the clip had been doctored. After seeing the clip, Roll Call’s Morton Kondracke concluded that the audience “wasn’t exactly uproarious in its response” to Lowery.
That’s pretty low even for the folks at Faux News. Editing the footage, then airing commentary that is based on a perception created by the editing? Not cool.
