Remembering Wounded Knee: 122 years ago today

On Dec. 29, 1890, a Lakota encampment on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota was attacked by the U.S. Army and close to 300 Native Americans were murdered in the Wounded Knee Massacre.

Fox News Chyron Falsely Declares "Same-Sex Marriage... Fails In Minnesota"

Fox News inaccurately stated that same-sex marriage had "failed" in Minnesota this morning. In reality, Minnesota defeated an anti-gay amendment to its state's constitution.

During the November 7 edition of Fox News' America's Election HQ, the network ran a segment noting the success of marriage equality efforts in Maine, Maryland, and Washington.  Fox's chyron for the segment read "SAME-SEX MARRIAGE PASSES IN WASHINGTON, MAINE AND MARYLAND, FAILS IN MINNESOTA."

SSM Chyron
In fact, Minnesota voters rejected a proposed state constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage.

Same-sex marriage remains illegal under Minnesota law, but the defeat of the state's anti-gay amendment is a victory for proponents of marriage equality, not a failure.

Fox News management claims to have a "zero tolerance for on-screen errors" policy.

Robots on the not always believe a person wrote what you read.

I received six of these with almost the same wording on them within a few hours of posting the story on my blogs. These are robotic postings paid for by Dish Network/Blockbuster. The same sort of posts are done for political causes, fundraising and smear campaigns. They are generated and sent out by computer programs. If this is a student posting, where did you get the "original" wording?

Yes they do and I’m so excited about it! I can’t wait for the Blockbuster Movie Pass to become available because I’m going to be the first person with it! It’s so much better than Netflix and now that DISH Network has teamed with Blockbuster, they have a bunch of cool offers that are available to New and existing DISH Network customers as well as non-DISH customers. Blockbuster has the most extensive library of movies, games and TV shows and you can get thousands of On-Demand titles straight to your PC or TV! Customers will also have access to over 100,000 movies, TV shows and games by mail with new releasing coming out before Netflix and Redbox. You can exchange them inside a Blockbuster store and even get Blu-Rays at no additional price. The best thing about this new offer is that you won’t find these titles on DIRECTV Cinema or Comcast on Demand and everything is combined onto one bill! I actually work at DISH Network and I’ve been wanting to tell people about this for a See more...
