They Still Think We're Fox News

Reported by Ellen - August 16, 2009 -

I'm taking off for the mountains for a few days and posting may be a bit lighter than usual. So I thought I'd post something a bit less heavy than the kind of alarming, incendiary, anti-Democratic commentary that has been steadily pouring forth from Fox News lately: proof that many of their viewers can't tell us from them. It may speak volumes about the rest of their critical faculties - or not. You be the judge.

Dear Major Garrett,
I am so thankful you were able to ask the Press secretary about this e-mail today. Since when is the White House allowed to invade our homes this way? The Obama administrations behavior is reminiscent of the Wilson era Sedition Act. Following is my response.

Dear Mr. Axelrod,
Who is paying for this e-mail campaign filled with viral e-mail? I hope the government will not continue to invade our private lives with propaganda via the e-mail or perhaps a national take over is just ahead for the Internet

This is the question to ask Obama, Mr President, if your health plan goes through,
where do expect to get the Hospitals ?? Use the VA hospitals and clinic's, Military Hospitals, how about University Hospitals, or will you Build hospitals (I hope).

He should announce this before the vote !!

It's going around the VA hospital in Reno NV. And Mike O'callahan hospital at Nellis AFB.
it will be VA and Military hospitals. I think he should let the Veteran's and Military personal know if he is going to use there hospitals.

WHILE I'M ON MY SOAP BOX, SEND SHEP BACK TO CNN OR WHEREVER. HE IS A BIT COCKY AND TOTALLY STUCK ON HIMSELF BUT WE ARE NOT!!!!!!!!

Sal had a lot on his mind that day and sent us this one, too. After reading this one, I took pity on him and let him know he might want to double check the email addy.

SOOOOOOO - WAS E. D. NOT QUITE YOUNG ENOUGH AND NOT QUITE SINGLE ENOUGH FOR ALL OF YOU MARRIED BLOKES ON FOX??? FOX IS MY CHANNEL BUUUUUTTTTTT DOES FOX 'RUN' ALL THE GIRLS THROUGH A BLOND MACHINE EACH MORNING. E. D. DOESN'T NEED A SALARY ANYWAY - SHE HAS IT ALL!!!

Here's one we got 7/26/09. I have no idea what this person was getting at but I did not open the attachment to see if it held more of a clue.

See files herewith attached and proving admission of liability (blood in the water for any attorney, says my experience as a court reporter (CSR11417, State of California) of twelve years and former court reporting instructor of seven years (CRI, California); visible trepidation from contacts at CITY OF COSTA MESA POLICE DEPARTMENT during property pick-up).

The first to present a case always seems right until another steps forward to question (see writing of 9-1-06 herewith attached).

This one came in with the subject line: Sotomayor eyebrow flutter. Do you think he meant eyelid?

Is the rapid eyebrow flutter of Judge Sotomayor when she answers some questions a sign she is lying? Sometimes when the question is hard it looks like her eyebrows could fly off! Thanks, Jim

In case you wondered, racism seems to be alive and well in the Fox News viewership. We received this one on 6/11/09:

Please, if I have the wrong email - please forward this to the right department.

I am begging fox news to do this story. On monday night an 8-year old girl and her 37-year old mother were murdered by a drunken ILLEGAL ALIEN as they were walking out of the dance studio where the little girl just finished a dance class.

The illegal was driving a truck that is registered to a "horse trainer" with connections to weathly horse farms in westchester county, new york. The owner claims she did not know he had the truck. There are dozens of citizens, including my sons, who have seen this illegal driving this truck around town for a very long time - how could she claim he stole the truck?

Our Village, (name deleted), has been over run with illegals for many years. They are now spreading out into the surrounding town of Southeast (where this drunken illegal squatted). In the early morning main street is covered with hundreds of them. They drink and stagger all over town.

Our entire town is just heartbroken over these events. I keep thinking if this were an african american family killed - there would be no peace and the news would be all over it. Please do this story and let the entire country know what happened here at the hands of an illegal alien.

Please, please do this story.

Thank you for your time,

Sincerely,

Janet

We received this one 3/7/09:

I AM FURIOUS!!!!! This Saturday as I watched Fox Beltway Boys at 4pm MST with Juan & Fred – my blood was boiling!

There sat arrogant & prejudice Juan discussing with Fred President Bush & President Obama policies – the only problem was Juan addressed President Bush as “Bush” but President Obama as “President Obama”. Obviously Juan isn’t bright enough to know that “once a President always a President - out of respect” either than or he was showing his “prejudice” towards Presidents.

I noticed when Fred TRIED correcting Juan he stated “President Bush” but Juan never picked up on the correction. If this is how Fox wants to show it is “fair & balance” I suggest you start with Juan’s speak habits!

The only one that I see keeping Juan in check is Bret Humes as he corrects Juan's stupid comments!

Possibility former viewer ...

Greta,

Just tuned in, so I hope you were just kidding when you asked why Obama spoke today. What do you think! The TEA PARTIES! PREEMPTIVE ATTACK!

From 4/9/09:

Good Morning Fox American Newsroom:

Do you think that if American's doing the "Tea Party", should unite and not
send in their payment of taxes ' without representation' might really send
Congress a message of how disgusted we are? After all, they can't put us
all in jail!!!
