Mike Huckabee’s Fox News LIE(S) of the Year – 2011

Fox News Lies - Lie of the Year
The Lie?
In early March, Mike Huckabee (R-Fox News), told several Fox News Lies about President Obama. First, he told a radio show host, “One thing that I do know is his (President Obama) having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American,” said the Fox host. “If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.”
The Truth
President Obama was raised in Hawaii and Indonesia. His first trip to Kenya wasn’t until the 1980s. (source: talkingpointsmemo.com)
In fact, during an interview on Good Morning America on February 21st, Huckabee said, “Let’s focus on the issues with which we have disagreement, not on, really, the extraneous personal things that are immaterial. Huckabee later compounded the original lie, by claiming he’d been a little tired the day he offered the original lie. He later told Bill O’Reilly (R-Fox News) that he’d actually written in his book, A Simple Government, that Obama was actually raised in Indonesia. He said that appeared on page 183 of the book. Unfortunately, that was LIE #2. There is no page 183 in that book. Congratulations Mr. Huckabee! You’ve provided Fox News Lies Lie of the Year.
