Fox News, where "won't reduce deficits" means "will reduce deficits"

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Visitors to Fox News' web page today encountered this fair and balanced headline:

What? CBO says the Senate health care bill will reduce deficits. Why does Fox News headline the opposite?

Because the CBO now says the Senate health care bill will reduce deficits by slightly less than it had previously estimated. That, once Fox News runs it through their patented Lie-O-Mator 3000, turns into "CBO: Senate Health Bill Won't Reduce Deficits."

UPDATE: Or, um ... this.
