A ‘Daily Show’ gotcha: Fox News called out on video it misused in report on Bachmann rally

MSNBC’s Keith Olberman compliments “The Daily Show” on its catch that Fox News’ Sean Hannity used videotape from a Sept. 12 rally mixed in with video from Rep. Michele Bachman’s “Superbowl of Freedom” health-care rally. Doing so made the event appear to have a larger attendance than was actually there. (See “The Daily Show” catch below.) Clarence Page, columnist with the Chicago Tribune, talks with Olberman about the video misuse, finding it a real embarrassment to FOX.

“The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart takes a closer look at the trees in FOX News’ video coverage of the Bachmann rally in Washington, D.C.
