Fux: Obama hates our centuries-dead troops

Faux draws criticism for nooze anchors headlining repug fundraisers... uhh, donating millions to the GOP... damn ... their trollish headline of Prez Obama's new book:

Obama's decision to include Native American leader Sitting Bull didn't go over well with the headline writers at Fox Nation, a Fox News website. Their initial take: "Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General." (At the time of this writing, the headline has been changed to read: "Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Defeated U.S. General.")

Several bloggers and Fox critics quickly jumped on the site's overheated reaction to the children's book.

"Fox News Turns Obama's Kid Book Into Anti-American War Epic," wrote Gawker's Maureen O'Connor.

The New Republic's Jonathan Chait also poked fun at the network's coverage of the book: "Fox News Exposes Obama As Indian, Not Kenyan, Anti-Colonialist."

"Our Indonesian-Kenyan-socialist president is at it again!" wrote Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

Fox News chief Roger Ailes claimed in a recent interview that his network doesn't take unfair shots at the Obama administration. But headlines like this one only give ammunition to the many Fox critics who contend that the network—and sites affiliated with it—will take every opportunity to criticize the Democratic president.

Fox News did not respond to requests for comment.
Of course they didn't.
