A new low for Fox

I know I got to this two days late, but that doesn’t stop it from being horrendous. Obama gave the commencement speech at West Point, and he got applauded here and there. When Fox News aired it, though, they just completely blanked out any applause at all, thus making the President look far more awkward. This article shows a comparison of two videos: one from the White House (that is, the official feed) and then a clip from Fox. What’s particularly hilarious is that there’s a visible clip in the Fox version where they removed a section where Obama closes a book, so it’s not even like they were trying to be discreet about it.

Still, this is a pretty new low for Fox. It’s one thing to take phrases and sentences out of context, but to actually alter the audio in the video? Shame.
