Fox News and its parent company News Corp. are one of the largest media conglomerates on the planet, and unquestionably the most manipulative. It’s well known for its conservative leanings and partisan reporting. Over the course of any given day, you can watch them disseminate their talking points to the loyalest viewers in cable news . It should come as no surprise that the network that hired Sarah Palin and Karl Rove would be vehemently anti-Obama, the Fox News narrative isn’t complicated. It boils down to ‘Mitt good, Obama bad.”
So what does Fox do, when their own poll shows Americans prefer Obama?
Everything they can.
Media Matters has compiled a video showing various Fox hosts and news anchors frantically trying to walk back, talk around, downplay, dismiss, re-interpret and generally deny the findings of a recent Fox News Poll, showing President Obama leading Mitt Romney by seven points.
Watch the video here:
That’s not to say that Fox hasn’t been doing a good job getting their narrative out there. The poll showed that 43% percent of the people who say they’re voting for Romney are doing so, because he’s “Not Obama.” But on a positive note, it seems like the ‘angry, petulant children’ vote won’t be the deciding factor in this election.
