Eric Bolling is RFN's Most Misinformed Person of the Year! Congratulations, Eric.

Quite possibly the best Fox News headline v. Real source headline ever in the history of RFN.

The Fox Nation headline, "780,000 More Women Unemployed Than When Obama Took Office," heads up an article snippet that reads,

California lawmakers approved billions of dollars Friday in construction financing for the initial segment of what would be the nation’s first dedicated high-speed rail line connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The state Senate voted 21-16 on a party-line vote after intense lobbying by Gov. Jerry Brown, Democratic leaders and labor groups.

The bill authorizes the state to begin selling $4.5 billion in voter-approved bonds that includes $2.6 billion to build an initial 130-mile stretch of the high-speed rail line in the Central Valley. That will allow the state to collect another $3.2 billion in federal funding that could have been rescinded if lawmakers failed to act Friday.

The source article, from AP, makes no mention of women, the number 780,000, or Barack Obama’s job record! The comments alone show that Fox readers are not paying attention to the articles and instead are just absorbing headlines. Examples include,

This is OBAMA’s WAR on Woman.  Keep them unemployed,  If people dealt with the facts instead of the liberal bull no one would vote for this failure” and “Women. minorities, youth…virtually every demographic is suffering under Obamanomics.”

We all know Fox likes to spin their headlines, but attaching them to entirely unrelated articles? A journalistic low for a corporation thriving on journalistic lows. In case you were wondering about a typo, the article has been up for a full day and has over 340 comments.
