Citizen Journalism Strikes Again

The blogosphere has done it again. As discusses on its website, Fox edited its video and transcript of Sean Hannity’s hour-long interview with Senator John McCain. Fox removed a portion of the interview where McCain revealed that he “really didn’t love America until he was deprived of her company” while held as a prisoner of war. It’s not that surprising that Fox would edit something like this out. After all, the channel’s hosts have regularly criticized Michelle Obama for saying “…for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” Fox was just covering its tracks, trying to keep the egg of its face and avoid the embarrassment that could come with this revelation.
