Bill Sammon Thinks Propaganda is Funny

March 29th, 2011

It's one thing that we know from internal Murdoch Device memos that FOX News Washington editor Bill Sammon is a liar and a propagandist. Newly released audio received by Media Matters reveals that Mr. Sammon not only admitted 

to his smears in front of a friendly audience in 2009... he also think it's funny.

"I have to admit, that I went on TV on Fox News and publicly engaged in what I guess was some rather mischievous speculation about whether Barack Obama really advocated socialism, a premise that privately I found rather far-fetched."
Lies fed into the news stream to try and cripple political enemies are not simply "mischief." It's not a coincidence that Tea Party types are supporting efforts by corporations who literally pay no taxes at all to gut worker rights and compensation. The poor corporations can't stay "competitive" if they don't. FOX said so. Any attempt to make corporations pay what they should is "socialism." FOX said so. And they are "fair." And "balanced."
FOX said so.
