Fox News Spent The Day Lying

All morning today Fox News used a 2009 photo to claim that the president met with a pirate yesterday rather than address the Middle East situation with the prime minister of Israel. Obama posed for the photo three years ago as part of a joke sequence for that year's White House Press Correspondents Dinner, which, of course, was attended by Fox News. Yesterday the Obama campaign tweeted the photo as a "Talk Like A Pirate Day" joke with the caption: "Arrrr You In?"  Fox's story rocketed around the internet courtesy of closeted homosexual Matt Drudge. Fox finally tweeted a "correction" this afternoon.
