To be fair, I have a lot of Korean friends who often get stopped for directions by Japanese tourists. But Chinese/Tibetan/Korean? Yeah no. Also, you can just look at the clothes in that piece and know those aren't Koreans.

Most people can't tell the difference between Orientals, except for maybe Filipinos which people confuse with Mexicans.

According to multiple sources, the cutaway footage was from the Mount Everest avalanche.  Of course, the original Fox article now has a 404 for the video.

No.
You have to go to a lot of effort to spin every "story" in the direction of being anti-Obama and playing into the confirmation bias of the target audience.
You have to be willing to almost lie without lying and even then sometimes just straight up lie.
You also have to get your blonde bimbo news woman to read the teleprompter correctly.
That takes a lot of work, a lot more than just "having a pulse".

Here's a screen cap I grabbed during the news story.

Ironic that the source in the article can't even tell which type of Asian is depicted, just that it is not Korean

So subby here's what the article really says:

Korean group mad that Fox OBVIOUSLY did not use Koreans in the footage, but are UNABLE to tell what type of Asian they are.  "people presumably from another region of Asia,"  In other words: EVEN FELLOW ASIANS CAN'T TELL!!

It's a well-documented phenomenon that people have trouble telling members of another race apart.

// of course, deliberately not caring to confuse Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Tibetan/Mongolian/Siberian is a different story altogether

I think most of you farkers are ttoally missing the point which in some ironic way makes you almost as bad as FOX. It's not about whether Koreans physically look like other Asians etc but rather the insensitivity and ignorance of FOX News in regards to this incident.

I mean how would you feel if say a newschannel shows parents and kids sobbing after a school shooting with some random videos of sad kids crying in some random school in Germany or Poland?

No, no, no. That's a feature, not a bug. The Fox news audience eats that sort of thing up.

More specifically, they eat up people saying "wait, that's not right", because they see it not as Fox being inaccurate, but as "sticking it to the libs".

"Hey, that video's not of Koreans. Fox isn't being honest."

"Aw, who the hell cares? We get the point- they're crying. Why do you stupid bleeding hearts get so bent out of shape over this sort of thing, anyway? It's not like the Koreans will ever know. If you moonbats spent as much time working as you did worrying about Fox News, this nation wouldn't have half the problems it does."
