SUMMARY: Fox & Friends hosts repeatedly touted the allegation that Steven Rattner “threatened to ruin” Perella Weinberg’s reputation, as Dave Briggs put it, if it continued to oppose the Obama administration’s Chrysler bankruptcy plan. Only hours later did anyone on the program mention that the administration and the investment firm have both denied the allegation.
And then the lie spins its way out into the conservative wank-o-sphere so conservative wankers can get their panties all in a bunch about something that didn’t even happen in the first place.
Way to rebuild your brand, guys.
Only fools believe Fox Noise about anything, and I don’t think the American people are in the mood for fools right now. I mean really, the guy with the annoying voice who sells television products late at night is more believable.
