History Made: Fox News Credits Obama for Killing Osama Bin Laden

| by

You know when Fox News is singing President Obama's praises something serious has gone right in America.

I mean, everybody else on every single news channel was saying that Obama -- in concert with our heroic Navy Seals who carried out a daring attack -- pulled off one of the gutsiest, bravest operations in years.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

But Fox News?

They were actually saying the same thing.

I half expected Fox News to blame Obama for not killing Bin Laden twice. Or not killing him with the right weapon. But no, Fox News actually gave the president credit.

I know, scary stuff. The anti-Obama network used words like "historic" and a "very great success," which has my head spinning. 

You know, maybe the Fox spinmeisters didn't show up to work on Sunday -- maybe they'll arrive at work on Monday morning and say, "Wait a second, we gave Obama an ounce of credit?! Who authorized that?"

Then, get this, at 1:38 a.m. they actually quoted NPR -- in a positive manner. 

The world has been turned on its head.

Monday update:

Did I speak too soon? Looks like things got back to normal at Fox -- with Bush getting a far bigger mention on the Fox Web site and a Fox anchor telling the world that President Obama was indeed killed. See the screen shot and video flub below...
