Liberals and their vivid imagination

Speaking on David Letterman, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow explains how Fox News is "fake" (interesting bit begins at 0:55 in the video):

Maddow: The problem is that is reasonable to assert about Fox is that they make up things out of whole cloth and then make a big deal out them. For example, they said the new black panther party decided the election for Barack Obama. They ran dozens and dozens and dozens of stories about how the New Black Panther Party, which is one guy who braided his beard in Philadelphia and who didn't have an organization yelling on a street corner, I mean, they said, they represented that story as if that is the guy who decided the election. That is fake.
If all of that sounds wrong-headed, it is because it is wrong-headed. Even the normally left-wing Politifact couldn't find a single case where Fox asserted that the New Black Panther Party decided the election, let alone "dozens and dozens and dozens" of such stories. Further, not how she also cannot summarize the story with even a shred of accuracy: no one cared about a "braided beard" and neither is the New Black Panther Party just "one guy."

Any channel that broadcasts news 24/7 is going to make some actual mistakes but Maddow cannot find one. Apparently, when hate-mongering on the enemy, facts are irrelevant.

Notice that, when Maddow claims "dozens and dozens and dozens" of such stories, she is making it up out of whole cloth. Her claim that Fox makes things up out of whole cloth is psychological projection.
