    This will be brief and some will say why diary "Fox lies", it's what they do 24/7, without apology, everyone here knows that.  And outsiders, Foxers and Teahadists will say heh, everybody makes mistakes, they just got some numbers wrong.  To the latter, I say bullshit.

      Here's what the "reporter" said about the vote on todays Ryan wealthfare bill:  "It was a party line vote.  All the Republicans except four voted for it and all the LIBERALS except three voted against it".  Then he added, so, four, three, about the same on both sides.  Hold on.  I read here and in the New York Times that not one Democrat voted for Ryan's monstrosity?  Am I wrong, is our front page wrong, is the New York Times wrong?  New York Times headline:  "House Passes GOP Budget:  No Democrats Vote In Favor".

      And, almost as bad as their outright lie, they committed a sin of omission as well.  They did not mention the fact that this passage is DOA in the Senate leaving their low information voters with the impression this is now the law of the land.

      Again, I'm aware this misinformation is SOP for FOX but they need to be called out.  Yes, in their overall scheme of lies, distortions and half-truths, this is a small one but I don't think it should get a pass.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
