Video: Fox Affiliate Reports ‘President Obama Is Dead’ Instead of Osama


obama-is-dead[Video below.] A Fox News affiliate declared that President Barack Obama was dead and then flashed along their news scroll that “Obama Bin Laden” had died.

While reporting the breaking news Sunday that Bin Laden had been killed in a mansion outside Islamabad, the Fox affiliate said, “President Obama is in fact dead. I’m sorry, Osama Bin Laden.”

The affiliate then flashed along its news scroll that “Obama Bin Laden” had been killed instead of Osama, and reported that the killing happened a week ago.

Fox News is often under fire for reporting along party lines.

In February, the network switched Gallup Poll numbers to make it appear that a majority of Americans were for collective bargaining rights of government workers, a Republican cause, which was false. In fact, 61 percent of Americans were against it.

  1. To express our displeasure with policy of the current administration in a mature manner is consistent with Torah. However, to express – even if it’s “only a joke” – pleasure (“I wish it were true”) with the idea of the president dying is not a Torah ideal and it’s not consistent with the ideals for which so many readers of this site strive.

    Sad indeed that we’ve sunk so low.

  2. hey mr. yingerman why can’t you give credit where it’s due.President Obama should be praised for this unbelievable feat

  3. Wow, you have this story more twisted than Fox. The poll FOX News lied about was whether Americans support the kind of law, passed in Wisconsin and signed by Republican Governor Walker, to strip labor negotiating rights from public employees. That was the Republican cause.

    The truth is the poll found 61% would oppose a law in their own state similar to such a proposal in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who would favor such a law. FOX switched the figures, presented a graphic with the lie, and then took 44 minutes to correct it.

    Fox News Channel, their commentators, and their affiliates have a long history of corrupting the truth in the service of their Republican masters. The are incredibly in the original sense of the word, they lack any credibility.

  4. This is stupid. The names sound similar so they made a mistake. 1010 wins did the same thing. Big deal.

  5. why is everyone making such a big deal about a stupid slip of the tongue? Let’s just thank Hashem that they finally caught the terrorist of terrorists!!!

  6. They can’t get the story straight because it’s a lie.
    Osama Bin Ladin has been dead for 10 years.

    Meanwhile in other news …

    There was a wild party in Washington DC this past weekend as US government officials wheeled the corpse of Osama Bin Ladin around DC in the back of a red convertible.
