Another LIE About Obama’s Connections to Muslims

The Lie?
During a segment on the October 5th, 2013 edition of Fox & Friends, one of the show’s co-hosts, Anna Kooiman, decided that President Obama, “has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture out of his own pocket.” Her assertion was part of a discussion (if you call any conversation that includes Tucker Carlson a “discussion”) involving the government shutdown that led to the closing of World War II Memorial. Kooiman’s claim was stated so matter-of-factly, that it automatically became the leading candidate for the FoxNewsLies.net “Lie of the Year!
The Truth
Kooiman’s “source” was the satirical website National Report. The statement had been a well-written fake designed to make people snicker. Unfortunately, Fox & Friends isn’t snickering. So, you can expect the folks at Fox will determine that the National Report is really a clever extension of the Socialist Worker, and that the president won’t be paying out-of-pocket for the International Museum of Muslim Cultures. He’ll be funneling it from your grandmother’s pensions.   (sources: mediamatters.org and snopes.com)
