As part of a Hannity show discussion about Obamacare, Fox News’ Dr. Marc Siegel offered his rather mean-spirited complaint: that it will allow too much access to health coverage for too many. Rather than look for ways to make sure there are enough resources for everyone, Siegel would, apparently, prefer that millions go without insurance at all so that the haves won’t be inconvenienced.Read more
Fox News civil war: Sarah Palin vs. Chris Wallace edition! After an interview with Senator Ted Cruz on Fox News Sunday today over his plan to defund Obamacare, Wallace mentioned he had received "unsolicited" attack material from Republicans who wanted it used against Cruz. Not long after, Palin took to Twitter to attack Wallace for not naming names.Read more
What does Greg Gutfeld have in common with white supremacists? The answer appears to be that both believe that America is in the throes of an epidemic of black on white crime which is being ignored by the mainstream media. But never fear, the fearless and proudly non-politically correct Greg Gutfeld is there to expose this outrage being perpetrated by hordes of black thugs who, according to Gutfeld, are part of a culture which is "corrosive." Earlier this month, he devoted two rants to the imaginary black on white crime wave which, in Gutfeld's mind (such as it is), is motivated by hatred of whites - even though the case he cited could involve mental health issues. But he's not alone. According to the ADL, white supremacists (and Fox News) are pushing the same narrative about black on white crime. What's that saying about great minds running in the same gutter...Read more
Per the "Vending Times," famous "dick" Tucker Carlson will be in the "windy city" next month. "CHICAGO -- "The National Automatic Merchandising Association reports that Tucker Carlson, the cohost of Fox News's "Fox and Friends Weekend," will be a guest speaker at its Advocacy in Action public policy conference, planned for the nation's capital early in October..." Not as good as CPAC but it's something. And like so many vending machines, Tucker takes in money and spews out crap. Seriously, color me impressed!!!!
Sean Hannity and his two like-minded Republican Congressmen were just delighted with the House efforts to defund Obamacare. Even more sickening to those of us who, unlike those three fat cats, actually have to find and pay for our health insurance, none of them seemed to spend even a second thinking about how we’re supposed to get affordable coverage instead. Nevertheless, the two Congressmen beamed about what a big favor they had just done us.Read more
It’s hard to imagine how a Republican Congressman could not be partisan enough for Fox News but that’s exactly what happened this morning on Fox News when Rep. Patrick Meehan was careful about his accusations over Benghazi.Read more
On America’s Newsroom, Martha MacCallum talked about mass shootings and Aaron Alexis, the slain suspect in Monday’s Navy Yard shootings. “We need to figure out why this keeps happening in this country,” MacCallum said. But, of course, we didn’t need to think about the role guns might play.Read more
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in memory, we not only have a tie for first place in our Fox News Outrageous Quote of the Week poll, we are one vote away from having a three-way tie.Read more
Last night, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan appeared on On The Record where he announced, “We think” that then-Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was aware that an IRS audit had exposed the supposedly wrongful investigation of Tea Party groups long before he said he did. The Washington Post did a great job of debunking this claim today. But not only did host Greta Van Susteren unquestioningly promote it, she acted as though Republicans have gone too easy on Geithner and suggested ways of prosecuting him more aggressively.Read more
Roger Ailes' investment in Elisabeth Hasselbeck, as the newest Fox & Friends propaganda pitching blonde, is yielding an immediate return. As reported on Media Matters lil Lizzie, during her very first week on the job, has been a dutiful medium for all the GOP talking points about the pitfalls and scariness of Obamacare. But, as Ed Schultz says, this Fox "scarecrow" is, like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, in need of a brain" and that if she "thinks that she can spook policy away, she can keep on pretending."
