Fox News got spectacularly owned by this San Francisco politician (Video)

What the Fox?

Fox News just got owned.

It’s like when that playground bully at school who picked on all the kids for years finally gets a good hiding (well, kind of).

San Francisco politician Scott Wiener and his colleagues had been followed all week by Fox News reporters after a story on undocumented immigrants in the city.

But when they finally cornered him, he had this brilliant response…

The best part of the whole thing is that Fox News played the clip on one of their own slots – The Bill O’Reilly Show.

O’Reilly’s reaction is priceless. A shining example of news objectivity, something the BBC would be proud of…

The 20-second clip has made Wiener a bit of a hero in his home city, as well as across liberal America.

Wiener, who admitted he was happy to talk to any news organisations – liberal or conservative – told Think Progress: “There is such a deep seated frustration with Fox News and the fringe it represents.”

He added that Fox News is a “propaganda machine, nothing more and nothing less.”

Well, that’s them told.
