Fake News – Fox, CNBC and CNN Style

The following two videos from The Daily Show are brilliant illustrations of today’s massive deficits in journalistic integrity. The clips speak for themselves. The moral of the story is one of my frequent refrains on the many radio interviews I provide each week: what you think is fact is usually spin. (Adobe Flash Player required to view both of the following videos.)

This next clip is an all-too-typical example of the hypocritical double standard in reporting that permeates Fox News (spin conservative style) and CNBC (spin progressive style). Which station’s integrity deficits are more disgustingly unpatriotic? Spin is spin no matter where on the political spectrum it occurs.
