“I gave them no straight answers. Every time they called, it would be from an unknown number. I’d be like, ‘Yeah, I got my English degree from Texas.’ Then the next time, ‘Yeah, I’m in engineering.’”
Try not to laugh. I know we already know that Fox News is a joke but this really goes to show you the process that Fox goes through in order to paint Obama negatively. It also says a lot that it took weeks to find someone for the show that fit this narrative. Fox “News” is a huge joke.
Talking Points Memo actually interviewed – Max Rice – the kid being interviewed by Gretchen Carlson unlike Fox News which he says he just made up a bunch of stuff and they didn’t even fact check even the conflicting statements he gave them. They have the story HERE:
“When I picked up the phone, my ears perked up at the national TV part,” Rice said. “I was like, ‘Fuck yeah, I graduated college.’ And they should have known I hadn’t graduated.”
A YouTube video easily found by searching the name “Max Rice” shows a similar-looking young man delivering a high school commencement address in 2010, casting doubt on Fox’s claim that he is a recent college graduate (Rice confirmed that it was him in thevideo). Rice said there was little in the way of screening done by Fox in advance of his interview, save for a long e-mail he received last week.
“It was a checklist basically, requirements to appear on the segment,” Rice said. “I had to have voted for Obama in 2008, feel disenfranchised and now be voting for Romney.”
But as awkward as his appearance on Fox was … his stand-up was pretty bad; you can see that HERE.
