Faux News Busted Again! Using Fake Video, Passing It Off As Real!

Jon Stewart has called out Fux News, once again.

This time, the comedian and host of the “Daily Show” on Comedy Central pointed out video shown on Sean Hannity’s interview with right wing ‘nut’, Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann. Stewart mocked Hannity for inflating Bachmann rally attendance and trying to pass 9-12 rally footage off as real footage from her.

Citing no evidence, Hannity estimated on his radio show that 20,000 attended the Fox-promoted, GOP health care protest. However, MSNBC reported that D.C. Capitol police estimated the crowd at only 4,000. Prior to the rally, Hannity said crowds at the event — which he and other Fox News figures heavily promoted — would be “massive.” Conservative media previously inflated crowd estimates for the 9-12 March on Washington.

Story originally reported by Media Matters.

Don’t expect any retractions!
