Media Matters, the watchdog site, caught Fox and Friends good. The show, probably the most egregious and flat out moronic of the Fox News lineup, did a "story" on a recent New York Times article about CNN and MSNBC closing in on fox in the ratings race. Fox and Friends mentioned the piece's writer Jacques Steinberg and Steven Reddicliffe, the editor who ran the piece.
They also ran photos of the pair, photos that were almost comically altered to make them look uglier. They darkened their eyes, messed with their noses, teeth and hairlines, and passed it off as real. Another high water mark for Fox News: They distort, you decide.
