Fox Nuisance Has Tantrum: Disfigures NYT Journos

Their desperation is so beyond pathetic, it hilarious. (I wonder if the Fox and Friends bunch will be on Keith's "Worst Persons" list tonight...)

"On the July 2 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends, co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade labeled New York Times reporter Jacques Steinberg and editor Steven Reddicliffe 'attack dogs,' claiming that Steinberg's June 28 article on the 'ominous trend' in Fox News' ratings was a 'hit piece.' During the segment, however, Fox News featured photos of Steinberg and Reddicliffe that appeared to have been digitally altered -- the journalists' teeth had been yellowed, their facial features exaggerated, and portions of Reddicliffe's hair moved further back on his head. Fox News gave no indication that the photos had been altered."
