America’s Chickens Coming Home to Roost – the importance of context, and the power of selective quoting Mar 21 2008
One of the clips that has been played over and over again was of Barack Obama’s pastor saying that America’s chickens were coming home to roost. This video reveals that he was quoting a U.S. Ambassador who had said this. Fox News and other media outlets played the quote, over and over, making it sound like it was the pastor who thought that. See the video for yourself, and see the power of selectively quoting a speech or talk.
