Fox News Exec Admits Lying On-Air About Obama

Prior to the 2008 election Fox News was the source of a lot of silliness, but the most egregious lie being foisted upon viewers was that Barack Obama advocated socialism. This admission comes from Fox Washington managing editor Bill Sammon who admitted the lie in the following audio obtained by Media Matters.

Over and over again Fox News has been proven to be a propaganda factory not a new outlet, yet they continue to get the same access accredited press gets to officials and events.  That needs to end.  If they are going to be a PR firm for the GOP, then they need to be treated like one and have their press credentials lifted.
