Fox News exposed using the wrong footage -- again.

Since I know this will get flipped back to MSNBC, I'll open by saying tha this is why I'd say Fox is even worse than MSNBC in its partisan fervor. I don't know of too many things that MSNBC has ever done that are as egregious as this.

Fox News again accused of airing misleading video
11 mins ago

For the second time in just over a week, Fox News is coming under fire for misusing old news footage. The latest flap is leading some people to charge that the cable news network is intentionally misleading its audience, while Fox claims a "production error."

Wednesday's incident occurred when Fox News host Gregg Jarrett mentioned that a Sarah Palin appearance and book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan had a massive turnout. As footage rolled of a smiling and waving Palin amidst a throng of fans, Jarrett noted that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate is "continuing to draw huge crowds while she's promoting her brand-new book,'' adding that the images being shown were "some of the pictures just coming in to us.... The lines earlier had formed this morning."

However, the video used in the segment was from a 2008 McCain/Palin campaign rally. In response to the minor uproar that arose after clips of Jarrett's report hit the Internet, Fox senior vice-president of news Michael Clemente issued an initial statement saying, "This was a production error in which the copy editor changed a script and didn't alert the control room to update the video."

On Thursday afternoon, Fox News issued an on-air apology delivered by host Jane Skinner:

Yesterday we told you about Sarah Palin kicking off her book tour and then we spoke to Sean Hannity about an interview that he did with former Governor Palin. When introducing the segment we showed you footage of people lining up in Michigan for a book signing that evening. In the tease before the segment, the tease to commercial, we told you how those people were already lining up to meet Palin. The problem is we didn't show you the video we were actually referencing. Instead we mistakenly aired what's called "file tape" of Sarah Palin. We didn't mean to mislead anybody in that tease. It was a mistake, and for that we apologize.

The current mishap comes on the heels of a controversy sparked last week when footage from a conservative rally held over the summer was played on "Hannity" during a segment on a more recent rally. During the clip, host Sean Hannity marveled over the large turnout for a Washington, DC protest. The Daily Show later pointed out that there seemed to be some inconsistencies with the video shown on Hannity's show, namely that the atmospheric conditions seemed to vary from shot to shot. Hannity later apologized on the air for what he called "an inadvertent mistake."

Barely a week into Palin’s blitz to promote “Going Rogue,” media coverage is becoming its own story. Fox News rival MSNBC caught heat last week for using altered images of Sarah Palin on the air, for which they later apologized. On Wednesday, Yahoo! News reported Newsweek’s defense of their latest controversial cover, which Palin herself blasted as “sexist.”

For the record, the Daily Show caught Hannity's stunt a week ago. Think Progress caught this one.

So you are suggesting the error was deliberate?

I think it can be safely assumed that I am suggesting that.

I was waiting for you to reply. Somehow I just knew you'd jump in trying to introduce plausible deniability.

Well, I don't expect any 24/7 news outfit to be infallible.

Good, because it isn't clear that they were lying at all.

So this bullshit of stealing and then completely misrepresenting footage is something I should just live with, rather than something I should actively condemn?

Hard to say I'm surprised. What, pray tell, would you need to see?

A newly discovered pattern of pulling the EXACT SAME TRICK?

God knows how long they've been doing it.

Perhaps they are just prone to making mistakes? That should make you happy.

Question: has Fox ever made an error than you would classify as not being a good thing for the GOP? That is your charge, right? That Fox intentionally makes these errors in order to help the GOP?
