It's really unbelievable. If you've read anything here of late on the many out and out lies of Fox News, it's incredible that not only are they not held accountable as a "news organization" for those lies (not mistakes, mind you, as in the Rather case, but simply bald-faced lies) that they are never held accountable for anything. Even by those folks who were so "outraged" by the Rather case and called for his resignation and suggested that CBS no longer has credibility about anything.
Well, guess what? Even after Carl Cameron (Chief campaign correspondent for Fox, wife works for George W. Bush, and assigned by Fox to cover Kerry's campaign) simply made up fake Kerry quotes and posted them to the Fox website yesterday, he's still at it today as Atrios notes.
Yes, a known 527 parody group set up by Republicans is calling themselves "Communists for Kerry" was interviewed by Cuticle Carl who filed a report today filled with quotes from this fake group such as: "Even though he, too, is a capitalist, he supports my socialist values more than President Bush ... The North Koreans are my comrades to a point, and I'm sure they support Comrade Kerry, too."
It's just amazing. See the Atrios story --- especially you Rightwing hypocrites who dare read this Blog and yet still offer your bullshit mock outrage about Rather --- for full details. Anything to win. No moral compass necessary.
Are there any wingnuts here with the stones to publically call for the immediate resignation of Carl Cameron who has been allowed to continue covering Kerry even after both of these stories?
