Fox and Friends Misleadingly Edits Video to Claim Tea Partier Was Attacked

Not really a St. Louis story, but following up on my previous post...

Fox and Friends presented a video they claimed showed that a man attacking "peaceful tea party protesters." You can watch their take here:

However, not only did Fox and Friends start the clip at a misleading time, they actually zoomed in to hide a full shot of the tussle, which seems to show the Republican pushing the guy they claim was an attacker. Here's their zoomed in shot:

And here's the actual video of how the tussle started:

And of course they failed to mention that both men were charged with simple assault.

"Fair and Balanced" in action again.
