NHDP: Faux Documentary’s Partisan Rhetoric Parrots Brown Campaign, Ignores Facts
Manchester, NH—Fox News is coming to the defense of former employee Scott Brown in an obvious attempt to prop up his campaign. Yesterday evening, Fox News ran a “documentary” focusing on the impacts of the ACA on New Hampshire, which was full of partisan rhetoric that echoes Scott Brown’s attacks, ignoring the facts and actual reality of what’s happening on the ground. It’s no coincidence that Fox began production on this piece while Brown was still on their payroll, and while a prominent Fox employee publicly acknowledged a pending Brown Senate bid.
“It’s no coincidence that Fox aired a ‘documentary’ parroting Scott Brown’s misleading ACA attacks just three months before Election Day,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “This is a blatant attempt to prop up their former employee’s campaign, full of half-truths and misleading rhetoric on the ACA that we’ve come to expect from people who are dead-set on repealing the law and desperate to get back into the U.S. Senate.”
