Top definition
A particularly blatant form of media spin and partisan hackery where a particularly embarassing or scandalous member of a political party is suddenly relabelled as a member of an opposition party in an attempt to deflect association with that shame or scandal away from one's own party onto another. Named after FOXNews, which was famous for "mistakenly" labelling Republican politicians caught in sex-related scandals as Democrats.
Right after Mark Foley was caught sending explicit messages to young male pages, the FOXNews Magic changed him from a Republican to Democrat.
