Pin hypocrisy on Fox

 

The simplest way to tell if a politician hates America is whether he wears a flag pin on his lapel. On an occasion when President Barack Obama didn’t wear one, Fox News spent many hours proclaiming this a sign of disrespect and contempt for the country they dearly love.

While watching the State of the Union, I noticed the most powerful Republican in Congress, House Speaker John Boehner, was pinless. As Fox’s motto is “Fair and Balanced,” I thought they would be all over this blatant slap in the face to any patriotic American. But nary a word has been uttered, as Fox is too busy explaining the meaning of the word “dictator” to their viewers so they can parrot it in their letters to the editor.
