I’m confused, is the intended implication that Fox is purposefully mislabeling Iraq as Egypt? Or that Fox is careless? I’m confused what Fox’s agenda would be for doing that. More likely, I just learned a little about Mr. Parson’s political agenda. @confused, I’m sure in this case it is carelessness! However as a Brit the political agenda demonstrated to be fair by the broadcasts of both Fox and msnbc is shocking enough to suggest such “mislabelling” could be exploited to make a point. ah, gotcha, thank you for clarifying. I agree they can be as biased as Egyptian State television. Cute story. You realize the map is over a year old, right? http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/200907270040 […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by José Hernández and wanlinksniper, Mahdi Rahimi.
