Fox Sports Fabricates Headlines

Submitted by Michael Allen on Sep 21, 2011


During coverage of a game between the Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons, Fox Sports created then aired fake disparaging newspaper headlines about Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The fabricated headlines read “Cutler Leaves With Injury,” “Cutler Lacks Courage” and “Cutler’s No Leader” (video below).


Fox NFL analyst Daryl Johnston even referred to the slanderous graphics as “actual headlines from the local papers here in Chicago.” The headlines supposedly referred to criticism Cutler received for sitting out the second half of Chicago’s playoff loss last season.


To its credit, the Chicago Tribune got Fox, whose parent company News Corporation is under investigation for phone-hacking and other journalistic malpractice issues, to admit that the headlines were fake.
