FOX News Passes Off Regurgitated GOP Press Release As Reporting

MediaMatters.org calls Fox News out on this one. Their summary of the fair and balanced reporting:

In purporting to “take a look back” at how the economic recovery plan “grew, and grew, and grew,” Fox News’ Jon Scott referenced seven dates, as on-screen graphics cited various news sources from those time periods — all of which came directly from a Senate Republican Communications Center press release. A Fox News on-screen graphic even reproduced a typo contained in the Republican press release.

The repeated typo? Check out the date on the screen capture below:
