Fox News trolls America by branding greatest NBA player of all-time as a failure

Fox News and Michael Jordan

*CORRECTION: Fox Nation was quoting a website called Free Beacon(they forgot to put quotes around the text). The page was simply a feed aggregate. Although Fox didn’t make it clear and has since taken the quote down, it was a mistake nonetheless.

Ignore for a moment the amusing photo of President Obama pointing and instead focus your attention on the caption provided by Fox News.

“Obama glad-handed with about 120 donors, including failed baseball player Michael Jordan and noted anti-police activist Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday.”

Uh, troll so hard Fox News.

As a native Detroiter, it’s in my blood to hate Michael Jordan. He whined, he bitched and he cheated en route to dethroning the Bad Boys. He was arrogant and smug and dammit, he was the greatest basketball player of all-time. He’s also an incredibly successful entrepreneur and businessman despite his shortcomings as Bobcats owner.

And yet with his multitude of triumphs, Fox opted to go with “failed baseball player.”

Most supporters will argue the information is indeed factually correct. I’ll simply respond by giving you the finger and asking you to kindly stop trolling America.
