Fox Business host Stuart Varney didn’t just display a shocking lack of concern for those who are going without pay as a result of the government shutdown, he made himself out to be the real victim in the overall picture. While he continues to garner a nice, fat paycheck for his efforts.Read more
Fox News has a new poll out that shows the government shutdown is a disaster for Republicans. But Jon Scott and Monica Crowley did a masterful job of spinning the results and distracting their viewers' attention away from those results.Read more
The right wing is very adept at distorting reality in that they take their own negatives and project them on to those who are criticizing them. While the GOP has an abysmal record with minorities due to policies and public statements that are viewed as racist, there are some, in the right wing, who believe that blacks are the real racists - a meme that is advanced on Fox's The Five by Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld. Last night, Bolling and Gutfeld levelled charges of racism against MSNBC's Martin Bashir because Bashir asked a perfectly legitimate question based on the racial animus of the right wing - racial animus for which Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfled are Fox poster children.Read more
In their desperation to prove that the Affordable Care Act is a mess, the Fox News website is doing a "glitch watch" which purports to show how Obamacare is the failure that that Fox and the GOP have predicted it will be. The column details so-called "glitches" from various states because, according to Fox, "As ObamaCare enrollment begins, technical glitches on federal and numerous state-run insurance exchanges are delaying and turning away Americans." Fox defined "glitches" include material such as how the RI state site, gasp, "still needs adjustment." Wow, now that's f**ked up! But if Fox is really committed to "Fair & Balanced" news, shouldn't it have a success watch which might include the story about Butch Matthews, a Republican who loves Obamacare because it saves him money? Nah, that would be a glitch in Fox's relentless, anti-Obama propaganda, ya think!
Sean Hannity just couldn’t take a feisty Democratic Congressman Bill Pascrell standing up to his lies and spin. Not only did Hannity start screaming that Pascrell was a lying “elitist,” but “regular guy” Hannity followed that up by demanding they bet $10,000 over the facts of Obamacare aka the Affordable Care Act - that Hannity got wrong.Read more
Two nights ago, Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer developed the same sudden case of love for the federal government that Senator “Shut Down” Ted Cruz and host “Shut Down” Sean Hannity suddenly developed last night. Just in time to read the polls showing that Americans blame Republicans for the shut down and just in time to try to blame Senator Harry Reid instead. And host Greta Van Susteren did her part.Read more
Less than 10 minutes after a Fox News Alert reported a shooting on Capitol Hill, reporter Catherine Herridge immediately detracted from questions as to whether or not the government shutdown may have impeded the Department of Homeland Security. So after reporting that 10% of its employees are out because of the shutdown, she quickly took a gratuitous slap at President Obama.Read more
One day after Bill O’Reilly made a fool out of Sen. Ted Cruz, O'Reilly seemed determined to make up for lost GOP-unity time last night. He did so by declaring the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, a dangerous failure and thereby suggesting that Cruz and the Tea Party were justified in shutting down the government to stop it.Read more
