It is common knowledge how seriously US right wingers take their nations constitution, and now Fox News have hit upon a novel way to use it to rally their viewers to a cause: make a new section up themselves!
In coverage of an ongoing legal row over whether US Supreme Court justice should recuse herself from a case on the constitutionality of Obama’s healthcare reforms (Fox reckon liberal Elena Kagan will vote in favour of the measures), that bastion of journalistic “fairness and balance” invoked the following in support of their argument:
“US Constitution, Article 28, Sec. 114”
This is of particular historical and political significance, since up until now the US Constitution has only had seven articles, with the longest having ten sections and none of the language quoted above.
Scholars must be queuing up outside Fox’s offices to see their amazing new discovery.
