Fox News Gives NY Times Reporters Yellow Teeth, Big Nose

When I came across these photos, I couldn't believe my eyes. Yesterday on Fox and Friends, Fox News aired photos of New York Times reporters, calling them "attack dogs." In the photos, reporters Jacques Steinbert and Steven Reddicliffe became the victims of yellow teeth, a receding hairline, and exaggerated features.

The Fox hosts were upset with Steinberg's recent article "Fox News Finds Its Rivals Closing In" which declared that CNN and MSNCB have added viewers at "far more dramatic rate" than Fox, so far this election. When asked if the NY Times would respond to the image doctoring, the paper's Culture Editor Sam Sifton said no thanks: "It is fighting with a pig, everyone gets dirty and the pig likes it."

Fox News has found some pretty creative ways to outrage me lately. What should be done to address this visual dishonesty? To see the video,

"I guess it's because I don't get my news from Fox or any other cable news station." Snaps to that. I tried watching a little (I forget which channel) at the airport and it was just jarring. Too much commentary, too little substance, and just too...I don't know. Flashy. It was hard to watch after the slow, steady, serious pace of NPR.

GS, I wanted to know what, if any, action NY Times or Fox should take in response. For example, should someone be fired, should the NY Times retaliate, should there by an apology, should viewers express outrage?

Well, I consider this immature and unethical. I know we all have different standards. I stand by my statement.

Liberty, what do you mean, "What should be done"? What do you suggest?

I just read this and it's the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Who is running Fox these day? An eighth grader who knows Photoshop? Fox is such a joke.

First of all, it's wrong to flat out say that anyone who watches fox news is a moron. Honestly, that kind of statement doesn't help anything - it just (rightly) pisses people off. Secondly, those 2 figures aren't well known politicians or celebrities - they're reporters - which makes the satire a little less, well, funny, because a typical person wouldn't recognize who they were to know that the photos were altered. That said, I do think that's what they were going for. (That doesn't make it right, btw.) Watching that video felt like watching high school kids talking shit about their ex-friend. Seriously, totally childish. Even embarrassing.

I think the McCain camp needs more commercials featuring him in his younger days when he was a hottie! Maybe they could play some "you lost that lovin' feeling" and tie in with Top Gun! I smell success!! :)

Somebody asked if McCain was supposed to look like Brad Pitt. The funny thing is, when he was younger, he was as hot looking as Brad Pitt.

I never knew MC had yellow teeth. I still think he is hot. Am I the only one who said d*mn and laughed when they saw the pics.

Altering the physical characteristics of a person not well known to the general public is not satire actually.

There be liberals here. They don't know the meaning of satire. ;) GTR :pucca:

Last time I checked this is the light/funny morning show/segment on Fox News. Has anyone heard of satire around here. Does this make every political caricature offensive? I agree that it's childish, but when you're in the public eye...this is par for the course. :shrug:

I was always more of a Cubs fan. I don't hate any team from WI, and I root for the Packers when they aren't playing the Colts. I'm planning on going to the Colts-Packers game this October.

How about the Brewers? You at least have to like on team from Wisconsin. Maybe the Admirals :WINK:

There was a rumor that #4 was planning a comeback, but with a different team. Brett took a short interview for this news, and merely said that they great thing about rumors is that they are just rumors. I am not a Packer's fan. I grew up in Indianapolis, and have been a Colt's fan since we stole them in '83. I'm glad they are doing so well now, because I suffered through the Jeff George years to get here.

Are you a packer fan? I don't really like the team I just have an obsession with Brett. It got to the point where I cried when I found out he was not coming back,then last night I turned on the news and it was about him,could not finish watching it cuz my husband wanted me to make him something to eat :MOB: do you know what that was all about?

That's my point cabaker they're all guilty of the same charge. No clean hands in this situation, so to single out Fox news for dishing back a common weapon of the trade is silly. N.Y.T. got served and I'm sure they'll volley back in return. Now if we want to debate the ethics of such practices in the mass media with out singling out Fox news that would be some thing to discuss. I'm just tired of these Fox witch hunts.

It's boring, and the brewery is going under (Oh wait, that isn't new news). In spite of the fact that everyone keeps talking about how the world is going to end and humans are to blame, the people in La Crosse just keep going to work and doing their jobs. Life goes on as normal.

The photo shop of Jacques Steinberg’s picture really got to me. I don't want to start anything; but the first thing Fox does is give a man with a Jewish sounding name a big nose and large ears. Jews were depicted this way in Nazi Germany. I remember dicussing the caritures in college and that picture brought back those discussions and images.
