Leave it to Fox News to put a damper on the positive economic news of the decrease in the national unemployment rate. Fox spent an entire news cycle claiming that the drop in the unemployment rate from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent was contrived by the White House to enhance President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects.
Fox has once again lowered any chance for the network to be considered “fair and balanced” as its advertising suggests. Having apparently never won a major award for journalism, but with consistently high ratings, Fox continues to impersonate a news organization with profit as its main consideration without any consideration for journalistic standards.
Americans are a very determined people. Who knows how much progress we could have made over the past four years if Fox “News” wasn’t working hand-in-hand with the “party of no” to divide our country.
