Fox Nation gets an "F" for Obama rating falsehood

››› ››› MATT GERTZ

The Fox Nation featured a headline that falsely claimed: "One Group Gives Obama's 100 Days a C+." In fact, the article to which the headline linked discussed a poll of "new media experts" who graded the WhiteHouse.gov website, not President Obama's first 100 days in office.

On April 27, Fox News' website The Fox Nation featured a headline that falsely claimed: "One Group Gives Obama's 100 Days a C+." But the "group" mentioned in the NationalJournal.com article to which the headline linked did not assess* Obama's first 100 days in office. The article instead reported: "In a recent poll by NationalJournal.com, new media experts from across the political spectrum gave WhiteHouse.gov an average grade of C+."

As Media Matters for America has documented, The Fox Nation has repeatedly featured misleading headlines not supported by the articles to which they link.
