Did Fox News Distort the Message by Calling Above's Hanged Banker in Miami 'Sick'?

Fox News is appalled by politically-charged art influenced by the current economic crisis plaguing our country. At least that's the vibe we got after stumbling upon a regurgitated "culture" story on Fox Nation.

A day after New Times broke the story about street artist Above's hanging banker, Fox figured they'd shit on art and  call it "sick." Under the headline--"This Is NOT Art ... It Is Sick"--the "fair and balanced" news blog slapped a cropped photo of Above's work -- focusing in on just the noose (see after the jump) -- and ran a poorly written teaser of Daily Mail's Meghan Keneally's story on protest art.

Do you think Fox distorted the message by cropping the photo? Take our poll after the jump.
