Poll: Did Fox News' Obama Attack Video Cross the Line?

Even Conservative Sites Questioned the Video

By Published on .

This one seems pretty straightforward. Yesterday morning, "Fox & Friends" ran a four-minute video that looked back at four years of hope and change under President Barack Obama. With quick cuts, multiple voice-overs from critics and dramatic music, the video looked less like a news segment than an attack ad that would have been created by the Mitt Romney campaign or a GOP SuperPAC.

How blatant was it? So blatant that even conservative website Hot Air questioned whether it was appropriate. And a Fox News official later said the video hadn't been authorized and that the production team would be dealt with.

Like I said, it seems pretty straightforward. But maybe you have a different opinion. Watch and decide.
