On Thursday morning, Fox and Friends made 22 mentions of the minority-organizing group ACORN -- a consistent boogeyman for the GOP -- despite the fact that there has been no new news on the ACORN front in weeks.
"Straight ahead," said host Steve Doocy early in Thursday's show. "Congress has stopped funding ACORN after... Fox News uncovered shocking video tapes. But did you know that that ACORN ban was only temporary? Should ACORN get its funding back?"
Contrast that to the tone of the coverage when news broke, at roughly 8:30 am (late in the broadcast) that the economy had grown for the first time in the past year. The host spent just a handful of minutes -- and made only two mentions -- on the 3.5 percent growth in GDP, despite the fact that it signaled the beginning of the end of the worst recession in 70 years.

Wow this is very dumb. You do know another video has been released within the past couple weeks showing the stupid chick that claimed she threw them out did not throw them out. Oh but ya know apparently they are all psychics on FOX and knew that the GDP growth broke and PURPOSELY did not report it! Those bigot bastards! LMAO!
Defend them to the death! The tape was edited, the edited parts show the woman saying this is a put on right? I'm just playing along because it is funny. Guess FOX didn't air that, when the police report did
