Media Research Center reporter Dan Joseph recently asked students at George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, Virginia to sign a fake petition calling on President Obama to spy on Fox News.

The students were apparently unaware they were being recorded on video (below) and there is no acknowledgement that the school allowed this hidden camera stunt.

“We want the to be able to legally read their private e-mails and listen in on phone conversations between Fox News employees and their associates and their families," Joseph said to students, noted Campus Reform.

While some of the students questioned the constitutionality and legality of spying on Fox News, others did sign the petition, and there were students who simply didn't listen to Joseph's fake spiel and walked away.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Joseph claims that eleven students signed the petition in 45 minutes.

It's not surprising that college students have a dislike for Fox News, due to its opposition to gay rights, immigration reform, Plan B emergency contraception, the occupy movement, social programs for the poor and financial aid for school.

The Media Research Center is a conservative organization founded by Brent Bozell, who said that President Obama "might" look like a "skinny ghetto crackhead" in 2011 on Fox News, reported The Daily Caller.
