As HuffPost's Jason Linkins reported earlier today, Fox News took out a full-page ad in Friday's Washington Post (and a half-page ad in the Wall Street Journal) to boast about its coverage of the Tea Party protests last weekend in D.C. and to goad its rivals by asking "How Did ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN Miss This Story?"
A number of these networks didn't take the Fox News ad lying down, and fired back, saying the ad was "just false" since they did indeed cover the protests. CNN's Rick Sanchez gave an even more colorful response (watch here) in which he said, "Let me address the Fox News Network now perhaps the most current way that I can, by quoting somebody who recently used a very pithy phrase, two words. It's all I need: You lie," the AP reports.
Now, Media Matters reports, Sanchez's network aired an ad this evening that strikes back at Fox News' claim. The ad's slogan: "Fox News: Distorting, Not Reporting."
