Did Fox News Fabricate An Obama Quote?


Regardless, the unspoken words were imputed to Obama in a Washington Post article, a New York Post editorial and conservative blogs after Doocy's segment.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the remark had nothing to do with Romney. Nor is the phrase new: Obama used the words "silver spoon" in a similar context during a March 2009 speech about the importance of education and opportunity.

A Fox News spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
