FOX lies #2 – ‘UPDATED: Fox Deceptively Crops 2008 Obama Speech To Falsely Suggest Assault Weapons Hypocrisy’

fox lies3

Keep lying and dumbing down your audience Fox.

‘During the January 7 edition of America’s Newsroom, anchor Bill Hemmer claimed that a report that the White House is considering a comprehensive gun violence prevention package, which includes reinstituting the assault weapons ban, “comes in stark contrast to President Obama’s position back in 2008’.

‘After airing a clip of Obama telling a campaign audience that he believes in the Second Amendment and won’t confiscate firearms, Hemmer said that those were comments Obama made when he “was trying to get elected”:

(What FOX says Obama said)
OBAMA (VIDEO CLIP): “So I don’t want any misunderstanding. When ya’ll go home and you’re talking to your buddies, and they say, “He wants to take my gun away,” you’ve heard it here, I’m on television so everybody knows it, I believe in the Second Amendment, I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away, I will not take your rifle away, I won’t take your handgun away”.

And what Obama actually said :

OBAMA: “I just want to be absolutely clear, so I don’t want any misunderstanding. When ya’ll go home and you’re talking to your buddies, and they say, “He wants to take my gun away,” you’ve heard it here, I’m on television so everybody knows it, I believe in the Second Amendment, I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away, I will not take your rifle away, I won’t take your handgun away… There are some common-sense gun safety laws that I believe in. But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one”.
