Fox News Pundits Think Liberal Blogs Are Bad??

Reported by Priscilla - March 23, 2009 -

One of the chief memes on Fox News is that liberals are bad. Bill O’Reilly thinks they’re godless, Fox&Friends host a weekly series on how liberals are brainwashing American students (see any of my Larry Schweikart pieces), and Sean Hannity’s lede tease for tonight’s show is “could liberal policies destroy our way of life.” (Oh, no, over 40 million Americans might get healthcare, oh nooooo….) Another meme is that of the poor persecuted Palin family – with the most recent whine about poor, persecuted Bristol Palin. That Greta Van Susteren allowed Bristol to go public in an interview in which Bristol was criticized by both the right and the left seems lost on Fox. While Fox brays about smears from liberals and their blogs, they didn’t have a problem providing a national media platform for a group that smeared a decorated US veteran and presidential candidate. So, it was no surprise that last week, Bill O’Reilly and the little pals attacked liberal blogs for “negativity.” (here and here) So, I guess they’ve never read material from their side of the aisle.

Blogs are a way for people to have a conversation and like any conversation, it can range from the sublime to the ridiculous. Unlike Fox News and the hate radio outlets which sponsor shows from Fox screamers like Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, bloggers don’t have a national media platform. Thus, cherry picking quotes, from liberal blogs, is a meaningless exercise; but for Fox News, it serves as a way to push the propaganda about those nasty liberals. If the Fox punditocracy thinks that liberal blogs are bad, they should take a look at what is said on some conservative blogs. Didn’t Greta have to impose a monitoring system because of alleged racist comments about Barack Obama and his family? While the liberal comments cited on Fox were snarky, they didn’t rise to the level of – uh – negativity that is sometimes found on conservative blogs. And what makes it worse is that these are the folks who are supposed to be the purveyors of traditional, Christian, family values. Anyway, I’ve cherry picked a basket of my own just to illustrate the point that Fox doesn’t always tell the whole story and that others deserve a “wag of the finger.” Enjoy.

Jeff says: March 18, 2009 at 9:39 am -Hey (sick) nick c,What sexual position produces a really ugly baby? Ask your mama as I’m certain you don’t know who your daddy really is. You are a good example of what results when something should have been aborted. I could make an exception in your case

Ignorance, Bigotry, Homophobia also from the Fox Padre’s blog (real “ecuminism” here)
Francis says: March 18, 2009 at 10:21 amHey smarterthanrepubs, you made a great choice by leaving the one true church which is the Catholic Church to join a heretical 16th century “church” that has no problem “ordaining” woman as “priests” and “bishops”. If I am not mistaken, the Episcople “church” also lets sodomites become “priests” and “bishops”, and they don’t see anything wrong with sodomy or homosexuality even though it’s outlawed in the bible in both the Old and New Testament, not to mention in basic natural law. Also I believe that your “church” is pro abortion, pro birth control, and pro embroyonic stem cell “research”. Maybe that’s why alot of people in the Anglican “church” are leaving in droves to come home to the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church which is the ONLY TRUE CHURCH that Our Lord established

Junior High School Vulgarity and Homophobia from Newsbusters head honcho Noel Sheppard’s thread regarding Suzie Ormon March 20, 2009 - 10:43 ET by tomolson3 - hey suzzie smell your fingers!!, or better yet smell bawny franks fingers!!!!!

Some freaky stuff (what would Jesus think?) from NewsbustersMarch 16, 2009 - 13:18 ET by Lord Erond - I'll bet the NY Times collapses and finds you unemployed before the bastions of religious belief and catholicism do. Normally, Jesus tells us to love thine enemy and pray for him but your case, I hope you go straight to hell to be screwed by Satan's barbed demon penis for eternity. Frigging atheistic hack lying bastard

Pro-life or Assasination Chic from uber Christian and “pro-life” Michelle Malkin’s blog regarding Barack Obama -On September 30th, 2008 at 10:37 am, Tazed and Confused said:
I’m puzzled why the pro-abortion left won’t “walk the talk” and end their own lives… leaving fewer carbon footprints behind…Perhaps stepping into a wood chipper might let them share in the experience they so want for the unborn. Let Obama be first… I’ll be there to help.

Comment: And Fox thinks liberals are “negative?!”
