Fox News uses D for Disgraced?

After Fox News labelled disgraced Governor Mark Sanford as a Democrat (when he is a Republican), Intershame pointed out that this happens far too often to be an honest mistake:

Mark Sanford

John McCain

Arlen Specter (before he actually became one!)

Mark Foley

Lincoln Chafee

Pat Toomey

Ted Stevens

    Of course you realize this is a stroke of Machiavellian brilliance. Now I’m not in the habit of giving Fox News credit for ANYTHING (especially since they’re my employer and all in all not a great company to work for) but intentionally typoing the affiliations of disgraced republicans is so effective yet so simple its a wonder they’re the first one to try it. I mean, when you build a network on the assumption that journalistic integrity is passe, why not go for broke.

    Ever talk to a typical Fox News viewer?

    They’re not the brightest people in the world.

    Hmmmm … I wonder if a comparison with CNN or MSNBC would yield similar tactics. Nah! CNN and MSNBC are as true as new fallen journalistic snow. NOT!

    Fox “News” is a Joke…

    (Hint: Look at the letter next to Sanford’s name.) Apparently Mark Sanford wants to work with Megan Fox, because he Transformed from a Republican into a Democrat as soon as his sex scandal became public, according to Fox News. This……
