Rep. Anthony Weiner was on Fox and Friends this morning with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, talking about the House voting on the health care bill. Both the Huffington Post and Media Matters ran a segment of the show where Weiner “attacks” the hosts, saying that shows “like theirs” have spread disinformation about death panels and the bill. But if you watch the entire segment of that portion of the show, Weiner’s conversation with Doocy and Kilmeade was actually much more fair and affable than these blogs have made them out to be.
The Media Matters clip:
The entire segment:
Sorry, when a show ends with the hosts saying “That was a great interview!” and yet the headlines read “Anthony Weiner Calls Fox and Friends On ‘Lies,'” the disinformation is being spread both ways. Weiner even admitted that he’s already compromised on what he wants to see in the bill – which, lets face it – doesn’t make the Democrats come off too good. There is so much more to this interview than what some liberal blogs would like to have you think…which just goes to show, you can’t believe everything you read.
