Fox News critic
In response to Dan Suter's challenge to name specifics about FOX News lying (Letters, Jan. 16): Health care reform is a government takeover -- named Politifact's lie of the year in 2009.
Health care reform contained death panels -- Politifact's lie of the year in 2010.
Here are a few more FOX News statements Politifact rates as false:
Never miss a local story.
w There's been more debt under Obama than all presidents combined.
w Halting Gulf drilling costs $1 billion a day in imports.
w Massachusetts health care is wildly unpopular among residents.
w America is the only country that grants citizenship at birth.
w Texas board of education is eliminating references to Christmas from textbooks.
w Less than 10 percent of Obama's Cabinet has any private sector experience.
w The White House director was once the right-hand man of Acorn.
Creative editing and misquotes by FOX News:
w Sean Hannity edits Obama's speech in Cairo to make the president appear to say "We are not a Christian nation."
w Steve Doocy deliberately misquotes the president, claiming Obama said, "I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth."
w Sean Hannity is caught using old film footage to make a Michele Bachman Tea Party rally look bigger than it was.
Google "FOX News lies." The truth will set you free of your misperceptions.
