In this case, I wish Fox News was actually telling the truth. In a report on health care, Wendell Goler of Fox News stated the following:

Goler claimed that Obama "doesn't want to do it halfway" on health care, and then aired a clip from a March 26

online town hall


event of Obama saying, "If you're going to fix it, why not do a


universal health care system like the European countries?" Following


the clip, Goler reported: "His critics worry universal health care


would mean government-run health care." In fact, Obama actually said, "

Now, the question is,

if you're going to fix it, why not do a universal health care system


like the European countries?" [emphasis added] In doing so, Obama was


paraphrasing the town hall question he had been asked -- "Why can we


not have a universal health care system, like many European countries,


where people are treated based on needs rather than financial


resources?" -- before explaining why he opposed such a system.
