Fox biased? Say it ain't so!

That image, from Indecision Forever, is a television screenshot, so it's a bit fuzzy. Sorry. But this will explain it:
On Wednesday, the Obama campaign organized a fundraiser headlined by basketball superstars Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning and Carmelo Anthony to boost the president's fundraising efforts.

Rather, supporters who donated for a chance to attend the so-called "Obama Classic" thought they were going to a fundraiser being attended by current and former NBA stars. According to Fox Nation and the Free Beacon, they were in fact hanging out with "failed baseball player Michael Jordan and noted anti-police activist Carmelo Anthony."

Heh, heh. Heck, even I know who Michael Jordan is (although "Carmelo Anthony" could be a new flavor of ice cream, for all I know), and even I wouldn't describe him as a "failed baseball player."

And "noted anti-police activist"? Heh, heh. I invite you to read Carmelo Anthony's Wikipedia page. I guess that's not a new ice cream flavor after all...

But how far can Fox 'News' go in pushing their anti-Obama rhetoric before they become a complete laughing stock to everyone? Of course, they've long since passed that point with me. But how could even the true-believers continue to give them any credence at all?
