Misinforming a General Public Always Backfires

"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart pointed out inconsistencies in alternating "Hannity Show" shots of a recent conservative rally on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. This has led to accusations of Fox News splicing video footage shot at a larger Glenn Beck rally held in Washington two months ago with video shot at last week's rally, thus falsifying footage to make the more recent protest appear bigger than it was. In other words, the Fox News got caught and made fun of. The lesson is learned once again – don't misinform general public. Speaking of which, so what's really going on with "the pandemic swine flu" in Ukraine? Btw, Ukraine's Ministry of Health prefers to call it the Californian flu.

Here is a video from the Daily Show.
