Fox News Labels Elie Wiesel "Holocaust Winner" & Conveniently Labels Bad Republicans as Dems

Message David Pakman

David: Fox News has labeled Elie Wiesel a "Holocaust winner". Now, of course, he is a Holocaust survivor. He didn't win the Holocaust, here's what that looks like. This was put up on Fox News during a broadcast. He won, Louis. He won.

Louis: He beat the Holocaust.

David: Congratulations to Elie Wiesel.

Louis: Elie Wiesel 1, Holocaust 0.

David: Right. They took this down after a second, and then it popped back up and it said, "Nobel Prize winner". And then once they put the video online, you can imagine what happened, so they actually took it down from their website as well. How pathetic is it, what's going on over at Fox News with the titles?

Louis: Long history of this.

David: We do, we have a long history of it. That's absolutely right. I have a bunch of these for you, and some of these are incredible. Here's one where, and you tell me, ladies and gentlemen, which ones are malicious and which ones are just stupidity? Here's a map of the Middle East. Now, if you look at this map, it might be interesting to you, because if you look at the country that's labeled Egypt, you might say, "You know, I don't remember Egypt being north of Saudi Arabia and west of Iran." And you'd be right, because that's actually Iraq. So we have a map here of the Middle East, countries are mislabeled. All right, well, that's probably just an error, right, Louis?

Louis: I assume so.

David: Let's go on to the next one. This goes on to the long history of Fox News, whenever a Republican does something bad, you turn it on and he's labeled a Democrat. You know what I'm talking about, Louis. Here's Mark Foley. Here's Mark Foley... Louis, you've got to keep that mic on, buddy.

Louis: Oops.

David: Former Congressman Mark Foley, I met him once, it was odd, to say the least. I've told the story before on the bonus show. This is the image that was on Fox News when he left the House in disgrace after being caught sending explicit emails to teenage boys serving as congressional pages. Of course, he's pro-family and anti-gay, obviously. No question about that. Guess the party affiliation Fox News assigns to him. Well, Louis, unless the alphabet has changed, that's a D under his name. That's a D under his name.

Here's another one for you, and these just go on and on and on. This is a poll from the Rhode Island Senate. This is the poll results from a then-upcoming race between Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse and Republican Lincoln Chafee. Of course, we have a poll here that shows the Democratic candidate has an 11-point lead. Fox News conveniently mixes up the parties and the numbers. So these continue. There's a lot of these, Louis.

Louis: Let's keep going.

David: Arlen Specter. Arlen Specter, you remember back in 2007 when he was a Republican. Well, one day he said you know what, even though I'm a Republican, I'm going to get Alberto Gonzales in here, and I'm actually going to question him, because he forgot to misremember what he didn't ever learn. Remember that guy, Alberto Gonzales?

Louis: Mmhmm.
