In the official video, seen at bottom, cadets applaud after Obama says, "through their competence and creativity and courage, we are poised to end our combat mission in Iraq this summer."

In the Fox News version of the video, seen below, there is no applause but rather an awkward pause.

Media Matters' Jamison Foser acknowledges that Fox News' microphone may not have picked up the audience applause, but suggests that the network still promoted that section of the clip to make it seem as though Obama's comments were not well received by the cadets:

Now, maybe Fox didn't intentionally remove the audience applause. Maybe Fox's video used a direct feed from Obama's microphone, and it simply didn't pick up audience noise. But if Fox didn't intentionally try to make Obama look silly, why did it choose a 2-minute clip -- out of a 32-minute speech -- that portrayed Obama looking silently around the room, seemingly for no reason?

Any mention of Chris Matthews of MSNBC, not FNC, calling West Point "the enemy camp' for the president back in Dec?

Apples meet oranges, which would you prefer INDY?

If it makes you feel better I read that Chris Matthews criticized Obama for his handling of the oil spill. So the tingling is off the leg, so to speak.

Any relevance for the case at hand? Is poor news broadcasting made okay by sillyness of some other news moderator from another channel?

Trust yourself,
Trust yourself to do the things that only you know best
Trust yourself
Trust yourself to do what's right and not be second-guessed
Don't trust me to show you beauty
When beauty may only turn to rust
If you need somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

Trust yourself
Trust yourself to know the way that will prove true in the end
Trust yourself
Trust yourself to find the path where there is no if and when
Don't trust me to show you the truth
When the truth may only be ashes and dust
If you want somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

Well, you're on your own, you always were
In a land of wolves and thieves
Don't put your hope in ungodly man
Or be a slave to what somebody else believes.

Trust yourself
And you won't be disappointed when vain people let you down
Trust yourself
And look not for answers where no answers can be found
Don't trust me to show you love
When my love may be only lust
If you want somebody you can trust, trust yourself.

You, you got to trust yourself ....


~Bob Dylan

I have to kinda laugh at the concept of Dylan defending Fox News

Obama could cure cancer and the lead at Fox would be "Obama puts millions of oncologists out of work."

I actually like Fox. As long as you know that it's a tabloid and to not expect the truth, it can be wildly entertaining.

I loved a story from Bangkok, when it all went pear shaped last week - a couple were stuck in their 5 star hotel, and the hotel in a misguided attempt to calm and relax their guests decided to limit their access to news about the crisis. Pages missing from newspapers, and news channels suddenly not accessible from rooms. Oh, except Fox. Whether that was an accident or by design, it was okay - no coverage at all on Fox. Well done.

Fox News may be the undisputed ratings champion in cable news, but not among black viewers.

The New York Times' Brian Stelter tweeted that, according to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News has averaged just 29,000 black viewers in primetime so far this television season (9/09-7/10). That represents just 1.38% of its 2.102 million total viewer audience.

CNN and MSNBC, meanwhile, both have far more black viewers, both in absolute terms and as a proportion of their overall audiences.

MSNBC has averaged 145,000 black viewers, representing 19.3% of its 751,000 total viewer audience.

CNN has averaged 134,000 black viewers, representing 20.7% of its 648,000 total viewer audience.

Stelter noted that he pulled the Nielsen numbers after working on his story in Monday's New York Times on race and cable news.

His piece, "When Race Is the Issue, Misleading Coverage Sets Off an Uproar," examines the recent media firestorm over comments made by USDA official Shirley Sherrod as an example of "warfare" waged by conservative media.

I'm sure there's no shame on their part, in fact some might find this to be vital...

considering the overriding subtext of Fox News these days is "when minorities are in charge, it's bad for white people," should we be surprised?

can you imagine -- !!! -- the psychotic rage that would erupt from white america if a black man behaved like any of the Fox prime time line up?

or, worse, if the Tea Party were black?

the double standards are shocking.
