Fox News Calls Obama ‘Enemy Of Israel’ As Israel Gives Him Highest Award

By now most people are familiar with the various studies that have confirmed that regular viewers of Fox "news" are the most badly misinformed people in our country, surpassing even those who watch no news source at all in the level of things they don't know. Some have suggested that people who aren't interested in detailed reality and just want easy to digest talking points are drawn to Fox, while others believe that it is Fox which simply dumbs down anyone unfortunate enough to rely on their misleading claim to be a "news" network. And nowhere is the misinformation thicker than in the constant unfounded and baseless attacks on the President of the United States.

Haters gotta hate, I guess.

Fox News Calls Obama ‘Enemy Of Israel’ As Israel Gives Him Highest Award
By Egberto Willies
March 22, 2013

Today was a very eventful day for President Obama in Israel. He visited Gaza, albeit with rockets being launched into Israel from there. He then gave a major speech in Jerusalem to an auditorium filled with cheering university students where he provided encouragement and tough love to both the Israelis and Palestinians. After that speech, the President was awarded the Israeli Presidential Distinction Award, the highest civilian award in Israel; he is the first sitting President to receive one.

As he was getting this most distinguished award, both CNN and MSNBC covered the event live. This should have been a patriotic moment for the country. In accepting the award, the President even said he accepted it on behalf of the American people. Fox News was not covering this event.

Tonight, however, Rachel Maddow’s coverage of this snub was epic:

“After that big speech that was so well received by that huge Israeli audience in Jerusalem, President Obama was honored at a state dinner. He was awarded the Israeli Medal Of Distinction which is the highest honor a civilian can receive in Israel. He is the first sitting President to ever receive this award. Israeli President Shimon Peres said to President Obama, quote: “The people of Israel are particularly moved by your unforgettable contribution to their security.” He called President Obama, ‘Dear Barack.’

“So that was what was happening live in Israel. CNN and MSNBC are carrying it live, showing the President of the United States receiving this medal at this big state dinner in a foreign country… Fox News channel, however, is pretending like it is not happening. They’re talking about repealing Obamacare…. We are all watching as the Israeli president is saying to President Obama, ‘I know that you would not stop striving for a better world.’ What was running on Fox News instead was a commercial for their new special on President Obama as an enemy of Israel…”

COMMERCIAL: Obama: The State Of Israel will have no greater friend than the United States. Narrator: But with a friend like Obama are Israel’s enemies gaining strength? Sean gets expert insight on a special Hannity.

“That is what Fox News was telling its audience of American conservatives instead of showing this, happening in Israel. In real life, in the actual world, at that very moment, They report, you decide.”

Fox News is a clear and present danger to America. They are no different from the propaganda engine used by dictators and the oligarchy in the third world. It is the same tactic used to demonize Hugo Chavez and other leaders who attempt to bring real democracy and access to success for the masses and middle class.

Fox News is mostly responsible for much of the gridlock, bad policies, citizen misinformation, and the driver of citizens who vote against their own interests. While the remainder of the mainstream media is not as blatant in their servitude of the American plutocracy, they also have blood on their hands.

    I'm not at all surprised that watching no news at all is better than watching Fox Entertainment. At least if you watch no News you're not being feed misinformation.

    Idiot repubs
    Fox news has always had a disconnect from reality.

    That's why they exist.

    I guess this is a "thank you" for the $8.5 million tax payer dollars that are given to Israel every day.
  • ProudPr... convex 2013/03/22 14:59:45
    We have been providing financial support to Israel since it was founded in 1948. Yet no previous President has received the same honor that President Obama did.
  • convex ProudPr... 2013/03/22 15:04:34
    We'll need to supply the boots on the ground when things heat up with Iran...

    I pray it doesn't come to that, but who knows.
  • Gloria 2013/03/22 13:50:39
    Oh who listens to what fox says? In fact if they say it I don't believe it.
  • zbacku 2013/03/22 13:50:14
    I guess Obama past actions of backing the Muslim Brotherhood means nothing.
    Or the fact that he wanted Israel to give back all the land won in 1967 doesn't matter anymore.
  • ProudPr... zbacku 2013/03/22 13:56:27
    The President didn't back the Muslim Brotherhood. The President backed democratically conducted elections. He didn't decide who the Egyptians would vote for.

    And yes, the President suggested using the 1967 borders as part of a settlement. So did George W. Bush. So did Bill Clinton. So did George H.W. Bush. So did Ronald Reagan. So did Jimmy Carter. I'm not sure where Gerald Ford or Richard Nixon stood on the issue.

    That'd be kind of like saying that GW Bush backed Hamas in Gaza because State supported elections...
