The propaganda station is at their usual old tactics in swaying public opinion:
On the February 23 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade brought on a panel of guests to discuss the ongoing protests in Wisconsin, sparked by Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to cut benefits and eliminate most collective bargaining rights for some public employees. While talking to Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman, Kilmeade discussed the results of a recent USA Today/Gallup poll to falsely claim that “61 percent” of those polled are “in favor of taking [collective bargaining rights] away.”
The poll Kilmeade is talking about is here, complete with this graphic:
As you can see, 61% actually OPPOSE taking away collective bargaining rights from workers, and if those shades of blue are hard to differentiate, perhaps the headline on the USA Today article, “ Poll: Americans favor union bargaining rights”, would be a big indicator that FOX news got it exactly wrong!
