Wasn’t as much as a protest as Hannity and the rest of Fox News wanted it to be. So they did what they always do – doctor footage to make the protest look bigger. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get past the scrutiny of Jon Stewart, who took time to point out that the supposed footage from the Health Care protest was actually footage from Glenn Beck’s 9/12 rally. Whoops!
Depending on how you decide to spin the story, an Associated Press poll either proves one of two things:
1. In the case of Yahoo! and CNN, the majority of the public still approves of Obama, although they are unhappy with the Congressional Democrats.
2. In the case of Fox News and MSNBC, Obama’s popularity slips even more and the Democrats are the most hated people on the planet.
Considering Fox News’ track record, I’m more inclined to believe the first option (and after looking at the actual data from the poll, it is true that Obama hasn’t lost much support, just the Congression Dems). Why MSNBC feels the need to hop on the Negative Nancy bandwagon, I have no idea.
