    It's Seattle. The whole city is demented...in fact, the entire Left Coast is deranged.

    They'll probably get a local journalism award for this "Demonstration of Journalistic Integrity."

    #1 Question: Which FCC rule, specifically, if there is one, did this FOX affiliate break?

    @Rita Marley might be able to help out w/some of this. Not sure.
    They sure have them (rules) for truth in advertising. You can't add extra raisins to your bowl of Raisin Bran, for example. They do all kinds of tricks to spoof up their products, but they have to use their product and nothing else. I don't know about newscasts.

    But there's something more going on here. An editor just doesn't have that kind of power. It would be like a cameraman taking his camera into the ladies room instead of filming the POTUS. Either one COULD I suppose, but that's why they have station managers and program managers and producers watching from on high. I'm saying, somebody told him to do that. I hope, now that he's fired, he spills the beans on whoever made him do it.

    He's not fired.

    He's on leave.

    Paid leave. Many weeks, until this cools down.

    We used to call that a REWARD. Paid time off...yippee!

    This wasn't one person's effort. The station staff did this together, probably with the blessing of the GM.

    Seattle. Hard Left.

    Seems like the most logical answer to what happened. (As opposed to how logical it was to do in the first place.) And you know what they say about answers that make the most sense.

    Can you tell me why the FCC doesn't investigate stuff like this? Isn't that their purview? Or, is it the FCC to whom this editor will be spilling his beans? If he does, that is. Hope so.

    The FCC is part of the swamp. Their rules only apply to certain groups.

    My guess is that this was set up ahead of time. The editor will get a paid vacation and return to work a hero. And to think this was a Fox affiliate.

    Thought as much. What can I say. Hope springs eternal.

    I believe you about the set up ahead of time. However, according to the link @Traddles provided, the editor has indeed been fired.
    Later Thursday morning, Hill released another statement saying, “We’ve completed our investigation into this incident and determined that the actions were the result of an individual editor whose employment has been terminated.”

    It is unclear whether the employee created the doctored video or just allowed it to go on air.
    You caught that contradiction there, too, eh?

    Since old man Murdoch left FNC to his son(s) to manage, they have sought to go more toward the Left/Center politically.


    And that will open the door to a competitor who will eventually emerge to fill the solid Conservative niche.


    (By the way, I consider myself strongly Conservative on most things. )

    What they probably are investigating is to see if they should give the video editor a promotion.

    It is unacceptable, completely. Termination was the ONLY right option.

    Period.

    The edit was sophomoric and stupid. Anyone would know it was doctored.

    I would pay a dollar to know if the editor was Muslim or not.
