Fox News' David Asman falsely claimed that "the one poll we've seen" on the National Security Agency (NSA) program to collect phone call records of tens of millions of Americans "shows that over 60 percent, a big majority, believe this is not spying, that it is not violating Americans' rights." Asman was presumably referring to a flawed Washington Post/ABC News poll that indicated that 63 percent of respondents said the program is "acceptable." However, Asman ignored the fact that USA Today/Gallup and Newsweek have each released polls on the topic indicating that a majority of Americans disapprove of the reported data collection program.
On Fox News' Your World, guest host David Asman stated that journalists covering the Iraq war are "not going to report on a lot of heroism." In response, American Spectator contributing writer Mark Yost claimed that he had been told that people are "somewhat embarrassed by people or feel lesser of themselves by people who do incredibly heroic things," and that "they don't make a big deal of it, because they themselves know that maybe, perhaps, in the same situation they wouldn't have done the same thing."
In a segment of Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto titled "Porn to Run," guest host David Asman interviewed Steven Hirsch, co-founder and CEO of Vivid Entertainment Group, about the business of Internet pornography. Throughout the interview, the broadcast was split-screened with footage of scantily clad women pole-dancing and stripping in front of men. Media Matters for America has previously noted that Your World, ostensibly a business show, has often aired photographs and videos of scantily clad women and blurred images of nude women.
Fox News host David Asman claimed without basis that "getting to the 30,000 centrifuges" Iran needs to produce a significant amount of weapons-grade nuclear material "is going to be a cakewalk," adding: "Are we going to have to wait until there's a mushroom cloud over Jerusalem before we take a hit in Iran?" But The New York Times noted that Western nuclear analysts have determined that Iran "still lack[s] the parts and materials to make droves of the highly complex [centrifuges] which can spin uranium into fuel rich enough for use in nuclear reactors or atom bombs."
Fox News' David Asman suggested that the use of U.S. flags and signs written in English at recent pro-immigration demonstrations was "just a cover" by the demonstrators to conceal their "real intention, which is to keep things as normal among illegal immigrants in the country." Similarly, Neil Cavuto suggested that the demonstrators' U.S. flags were "just a prop," and "just a ploy to win America's support."
Fox News guest host David Asman discussed nationwide protests of proposed immigration reform and wondered: "With so many illegals hitting the streets, is this the perfect time to round up these lawbreakers and ship them out?" As Asman spoke, the onscreen text read "Round 'Em Up?" Later, the text read: "Perfect Chance to Arrest Illegal Immigrants?"
On Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto, guest host David Asman interviewed Anna Benson, proprietor of Anna Benson Enterprises, a website that features a photo gallery of Benson in provocative poses. During a portion of the interview devoted to Benson's negative views on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and filmmaker Michael Moore, Asman aired some of the site's photographs and observed, "There's some pictures of you in some very, ah, wonderful poses."
