Fox News is no stranger to making up news for its own evil purposes. This time, though, Fox Sports got caught doing the same thing.
Pro Football Talk says the network showed three local newspaper headlines about Jay Cutler’s supposed lack of toughness during the Bears season opener a couple of weeks back.
One problem. Those headlines were completely made up.
Since no headlines actually existed in any newspaper, Fox decided to make them up. And then say they were real. Seriously.
PFT contacted Fox and got a response
“It was misleading,” admitted FOX Sports spokesman Dan Bell.
“Our attempt was to capture the overall sentiment nationwide following that game,” Bell said.
Much like Fox News, Fox Sports looked at a situation, decided what people should think about it then doctored the facts to make it so.
