FOX Attacks Obama: Terrorist Fist Jab?

As Media Matters noted, FOX's E.D. Hill teased last Friday's edition of America's Pulse by saying: "A fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab? The gesture everyone seems to interpret differently."

Hill was referring to the fist pound (or dap) that Obama exchanged with wife Michelle last Tuesday night upon clinching the Democratic nomination. She then brings in a "body language expert" to further explain Obama's hand gesture (for those of us who are so out of touch that we don't understand what a fist bump means). NEVER again does Hill bring up the "terrorist" allusion during the segment, which suggests that FOX was merely comparing Obama to a terrorist in an utterly disgraceful ploy to boost ratings and spread slander.

Now that Obama has fist-bumped his way into the national spotlight, we can clearly expect FOX to continue smearing him throughout this election and beyond. Rest assured, however, that we will continue to expose their lies with our FOX Attacks series.
