C'mon, Fox, take some credit: You've earned it.

Under the headline "Obama Still Dogged by Muslim Rumors," Fox Nation … dogs President Obama with (false) rumors that he's a Muslim.

Fox's write-up of the dogging is little more than a collection of excerpted suggestions that Obama is Muslim. Fox Nation excerpts a Washington Times op-ed titled "The First Presumed Muslim President" and Franklin Graham's statement that Obama "was born a Muslim"; the closest Fox comes to debunking the rumors is quoting Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell saying "The president says he's a Christian. I take him at his word."

If there's one thing Fox News is rarely accused of, it's excessive modesty. But this time, at least, they don't give themselves enough credit. A more accurate headline would be "We dog Obama with Muslim Rumors."
