Fox Reporter Greeted With ‘Fox Lies’ Chants In Madison

By Huffington Post
February 18, 2011

Fox News anchor Chris Cotter and reporter Jeff Flock found the scene in Madison, Wisconsin a little bit inhospitable, as the gathered protesters chanted “Fox lies” over and over again during their afternoon hit from the state capitol building. One gentleman in a woolly hat was especially emphatic about his opinion that “Fox lies.” “Fox lies!” he said, adding, “Fox lies.” Flock quipped, “Those appear to be the only two words he knows,” but credited the majority of the crowd for being “reasoned, calm, and willing to talk.”

As it turns out, questions regarding the veracity of the content on Fox News have been raised in more substantive ways of late. Additionally, many of the protesters carrying signs criticizing Fox for being “fascist” nevertheless praised their sports coverage, so that’s something.
