Fox News host Steve Doocy claimed on Sunday that a Romney campaign ad that was widely rebuked as misleading was in fact true.
The ad claimed that Chrysler planned to make Jeeps in China due to President Barack Obama’s policies, but that Romney would “fight for every American job.” Numerous media outlets and fact-checkers slammed the campaign ad for falsely suggesting Jeep was outsourcing jobs to China. Chrysler itself debunked the claim and PolitiFact named the ad as its “Lie of the Year” for 2012.
Doocy insisted news that Chrysler planned to build 100,000 Jeeps in China was proof the Romney ad was true. His guest, Seton Motley, said the fact-checkers were actually leftists masquerading as objective journalists.
However, as was previously noted last year, the Jeeps being made in China are produced solely for the growing Chinese auto market. Chrysler is expanding production in China, not moving American Jeep production to the country, as Romney’s ad implied.
Jeep production in the United States has tripled since 2009, adding more than 11,200 jobs.

The View audience goes wild when Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman get schooled on democratic socialism
Both conservatives on "The View" warned of the dangers of democratic socialism, but co-host Joy Behar drew a rowdy response with her impassioned defense of wealth distribution.
The panelists were discussing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's climb in the polls, and Meghan McCain speculated about the possibility of the Massachusetts Democrat heading into a contested Democratic convention with Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
"I happen to love Elizabeth Warren," Behar said. "I think she would make a magnificent president, and I think this whole talk about she's too far to the left is a lot of hooey, frankly."
Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump
In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.
Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.
Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond
In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.
As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
