GOP Senator Tom Coburn Calls Out Fox News For Bias And Misinformation

It’s true.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) pushed back a couple of times against Fox News during a recent town hall forum. The first instance came after a woman suggested that under Obama’s health care reform she could be put in jail for not having health insurance.

“The intention is not to put any one in jail. That makes for good TV news on FOX but that isn’t the intention,” Coburn responded.

Coburn later defended Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she was personally attacked at the forum. He pointed the finger of blame at Fox News: 

“What we have to have is make sure we have a debate in this country so that you can see what’s going on and make a determination yourself,” Coburn added and then again warned the crowd against the myths perpetrated on FOX News.

“So don’t catch yourself being biased by FOX News that somebody is no good. The people in Washington are good. They just don’t know what they don’t know,” Coburn said.

Roger Ailes is not going to be happy.
