On Friday, Jan. 19 ‘FOX and Friends’ weekday co-hosts Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson reported on an Insight Magazine online article which stated that associates of Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-New York) uncovered information that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Illinois) attended a radical Muslim madrassa during his youth in Indonesia.
Whether Clinton is tied to the allegations is unknown: a spokesman for Clinton denies that the campaign was involved in the Obama claim, while Insight Magazine stands by its story.
What can be said, though, is that FOX News acted irresponsibly and did not adequately apologize for its reporting on Insight’s false information.
FOX News’ disregard for the truth is disappointingly evident when it does not even know the meaning of words it uses
