‘Government Slimdown,’ Not ‘Shutdown’ Insists Fox News’
‘According to Fox News, America is not facing a “government shutdown,” just a “government slimdown.”
‘In various Associated Press reports being used on FoxNews.com, they have replaced the word “shutdown” with “slimdown” in what can only be seen as an attempt to minimize the disaster currently being perpetrated against the American people by a handful of Tea Party Republicans’.
‘he blog at MediaMatters.org reports several instances of the Fox News website altering the AP titles and reports’.
‘For instance, one AP headline- ”Obama Shortens Asia Trip Because Of Shutdown”- was changed to “Obama shortens Asia trip due to government slimdown.”From : http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/10/04/government-slimdown-fox-news/
