Fox Nation chides Obama for not filling HHS secretary, neglects to mention Republican filibuster

April 28, 2009

You have to hand it to Fox Nation.  They actually rely on the fact that you only get your news from one source: Fox.  If you are a news connoisseur like the majority of well-informed Americans, you know that the majority of their stories contain brazen half truths.

Fox Nation can only update when stories are released that concur with their message.  Thats why there are so few new stories every day.

Let’s take this gem for an example.

Headline: Obama Unprepared for Swine Flu Scare?

Snip-it: President Obama went golfing and the Department of Health and Human Services is short a secretary, so other U.S. officials took the controls Sunday as the Obama administration ramps up efforts to find and isolate U.S. cases of swine flu.

Full Article: Fox News

The headline, of course, implies that Obama was not ready for the flu scare.  You know what would have helped?  The money that was removed from the stimulus bill for pandemic flu preparedness by a Republican Senator from Maine.  Does that get a mention on Fox Nation?  Ha!

The Snip-it, otherwise known as the only two sentences that any Fox Nation devotee reads, claims that Obama is “short” a Department of Health and Human Services secretary.  Any guesses why that position is unfilled?  Because the motherfucking Republicans in the Senate are filibustering Kathleen Sebelius.  Why?  She’s pro-choice.  Shocking for a Democrat, I know.

The full article doesn’t mention Sebelius until the 11th paragraph.  You know how many people read until the 11th paragraph of any article they find on the internet?  Nobody.  And that is what they rely on.
