Chris Wallace Offers Suggestion To Romney Campaign

In the middle of his interview with Romney advisor Ed Gillespie, yesterday, Chris Wallace threw out a suggestion to the campaign in the form of a question. "Is there any thought to naming that running mate early, not waiting until the week before the convention, to give Romney some help on the trail on campaigning and fundraising?"

In His Weekly Segment Brad Stine Disses His Own Wife Right To Her Face

Fox “News” is heavily invested in the Phony War on Hilary Rosen, despite apologies all ‘round.  Why?  Because Fox has found this to be a hugely divisive topic, and all divisive topics works in its favor.  That’s why it’s a winner for the so-called Fair and Balanced network, which is also why it was still an active meme this morning as the real GOP War on Women never was.  Since the Rosen-Romney hullabaloo occurred after the last episode of The Weekly Stine™—that Monday morning Fox and Friends segment where ex-carny Brad Stine blames everything wrong with ‘Merka on Liberals—it was an obvious topic to outsource to Stine.  What was less obvious was for Stine to outsource his segment to Desiree Stine, identified helpfully by the chyron as “Wife of Brad Stine,” as if that is the “be all and end all” of her existence.  It may well be.

On Fox Nation Bill Maher Is "Pig Maher" & Rush Limbaugh Is Limbaugh

Republican spokesmodel Rush Limbaugh has a long record of sexism and misogyny. Among a plethora of offensive things, he has morphed independent women with a regime that murdered millions of people in his use of the term "feminazi." His latest "humor," involved the three day long defamation of Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student who spoke out about women's reproductive rights. In addition to calling her a "slut," he engaged in lurid fantasies about her sexual activities - even suggesting that she, and all women who support insurance coverage for birth control, provide him with sex tapes. Meanwhile, Bill Maher has made several insulting, offensive, and sexist comments about Republican women which pale in comparison with Limbaugh's commentary. And that's why the righteous Fox Nation writers, in true junior high style, have, with one exception when Maher lampooned liberals, dubbed him "Pig Maher" whenever they do a Maher thread. Yet, Rush Limbaugh, whose standard Fox Nation photo is the skinny Rush, has no descriptive adjective. Ironic, don't ya think! Check out the newest "Pig Maher" threads on the "fair & balanced" Fox Nation.

Fr. Jonathan Morris Uses Fox News Pulpit To Instruct Catholic Voters On "Non Negotiable" Issues

The US is religiously diverse. So one would think that Fox News, as America's red, white, and blue newsroom, would reflect that diversity. You might assume that the concerns of a variety of religious groups are featured on the "fair & balanced" network. In a nutshell, wrong!  That Fox News seems to have become the media arm of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops political agenda is evident in its ongoing promotion of the bishop's "religious freedom" crusade which encompasses their belief that all Catholic employers should be able to deny birth control coverage for their women workers. As articulated by Roger Ailes faithful handmaiden resident priest Fr. Jonathan Morris, the bishops are fighting mad and urging Catholics not to obey "unjust laws" like the HHS birth control mandate. And just to make sure that Catholics know for whom to vote, Fr. Morris, during his weekly Fox & Friends sermonette, used a Catholic video as an aide for instruction on Catholic voting as well as getting in yet another word about the bishop's main rant - you guessed it - "religious freedom."  Wonder when they'll be hosting the "Rev Al" for his advice on voting?!

“Objective” Special Report Presents Judge Andrew Napolitano As A Tax Expert

Thursday night (4/12/12) on Special Report, the Buffett Rule was the topic for the "All-Star" panel. Who better for Fox to talk about taxes than Judge Andrew Napolitano? Yes, a judge talking about taxes! Not only that, but Napolitano is also a political expert, He declared that the President Obama's main purpose in proposing the Rule is to demonize the rich and, especially, Mitt Romney.

Ailes And Palin At It Again

I think it's safe to say that Sarah Palin's contract at Fox is unlikely to be renewed. First, she announced her decision not to run for president on Mark Levin's radio show - and not on Fox News. Now, she has had some snippy words for boss Roger Ailes - in the wake of his remark that she "had no chance to be president."

Father Jonathan Morris Pimps Bishops Call To Disobey The Law

The right wing and its Fox "News" mouthpieces had their nice white panties in a bunch over the occasional acts of civil disobedience by "Occupy." One assumes that if the National Organization for Women encouraged doctors to perform abortions in violation of state laws or if municipal clerks granted illegal marriage licenses to gay couples, the right wing and those on Fox News would be apoplectic. But the men in black, otherwise known as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, are urging civil disobedience of "unjust" laws which are part of what Fox and the bishops tell us is a "war on religious liberty." Roger Ailes' boy toy resident theologian, Fr. Jonathan Morris, informs us that the bishop's call to disobey (which was strangely silent during the Viet   Nam war) extends beyond the HHS birth control mandate to things like "inability to minister to illegal immigrants" - a group of which Fox News is not usually supportive. Who knew? You learn all sorts of things from Cardinal Dolan's America's Newsroom.

Juan Williams Smacks Down Hannity’s Race Baiting In Trayvon Martin Case

Juan Williams all but told Sean Hannity that he was deliberately race baiting Thursday night (4/12/12) when Hannity yet again fixated on comments that the black fringe group, the New Black Panther Party, has made regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting. Williams said, “To me, the attention you’re giving this group is playing to a stereotype. This is like a minstrel show about ignorant, angry, threatening black people.”
