Fox News Rewrites History to Blame the Dems

Just a few days left to one of the worst presidencies in history, but Fox News is dutifully still trying to blame everything on the Democrats (especially Bill Clinton). In a news report today, Fox reporter Wendell Goler said:

This president inherited a budget surplus, but he also inherited what he called “the trifecta of bad times.” … He inherited the 9/11 attacks. He inherited the recession and he inherited some tough times on Wall Street — remember the Enron collapse.

So, now 9/11 happened during the Clinton presidency?  Not to mention Enron? Don’t believe they said it? Here’s the video:

    But about 70% of the peons in this country do believe that drivel. If you live in academia, you don’t see the comman man out here in Appalachia who can only watch television non stop, can’t read, can’t think, and see Rush as their hero. They determine the direction of this country. ebdoug

    He said that Pres. Bush said that he inherited a trifecta of bad times…. Stop misrepresenting to forward your agenda. If you’re going to condemn others for sloppy reporting, etc., try to be clean yourself.

    He, the reporter, said that one of Bush’s trifecta items was inheriting the 9/11 attacks. The headline is “Fox News Rewrites History to Blame the Dems” The only thing the reporter did WRT that is repeat what the trifecta is. I love Pres elect Obama, and despise Pres. Bush, but this site clearly has an agenda. That headline is merely one in a long line.

    What he meant to say is that Bush never inherited the 9/11 attacks or enron from the previous administration.
