Fox News: Government Shutdown Actually a “Slimdown”

Well, it appears that buyer’s remorse has set in for the Right Wing media in the form of trying to candy coat their politician’s decision to demand the Affordable Care Act be destroyed put off for a year. If you head over to the homepage, the Shutdown that’s got over 1 million people sitting at home isn’t actually a Shutdown at all…Slimdown

That’s right, it’s a government “Slimdown” which is like completely different from a Shutdown even though the GOP has been calling it a Shutdown for weeks prior to it occurring and even though huge swaths of the government are now shut down…not slimmed down.

It’s almost like they’re lying to their readers….but no, no, that would be transparent and unethical. No one would ever stand for that. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
