U.S. Truth-speak in action

Fox News has been revising history again by calling recently disgraced Republican Congressman Mark Foley a Democrat instead. Foley resigned last week after it was revealed that he "sent sexually suggestive emails and instant messages to males under the age of 18 who had served as Congressional pages."

One of the messages printed on the Fox screen was "Did Dem[ocrat]s ignore Foley e-mails to preserve seat?"

So, an accused Republican child sex offender gets outted and Fox decides to pretend he wasn't a Republican at all but rather to shift the blame onto the Democrats.

As the folks over at Boing Boing put it, "we have always been at war with Eurasia."
