One of my students said that Fox News took a Democratic Congressman’s comments made on The Colbert Report out of context to make him look bad. Here’s the clip:
It looks to me like the Fox commentator got the joke, and wasn’t trying to misrepresent the congressman. In fact, I’d say the author of this clip was trying to misrepresent how Fox presented the clip. Notice how quickly the clip cuts away from the commentator’s reaction. He was smiling, after all.
In the end, it all comes down to perspective.
