Bill O'Reilly was the clear winner of our Outrageous Quote of the Week poll last week. His winning entry was, "Things are obviously out of control and the Democratic party is primarily to blame. Simply put, President Obama and his acolytes do not want Americans to accumulate wealth. They want to take private wealth away from those who have it and give it to those who don’t have it. And they have succeeded in doing that with an assist from the Bush administration, which ran up colossal debt after 9/11."Read more
Fox News lives in a nearly apocalyptic world of cosmic dualism in which the godly Fox is constantly fighting the forces of darkness. Chief among those groups deemed anathema is the media which, according to the "fair & balanced" Fox, is constantly bombarding Americans with evil, liberal, and very biased propaganda. Last week, Neil Cavuto treated his viewers to an epic hissy fit about how, according to Neil, the liberal media wasn't treating US Senator Ted Cruz's filbustery thing with the same respect that they gave to the real filibuster done by Texas State Senator, Wendy Davis who, in the godly right wing, is the very spawn of Satan. Never mind the reality that there were major differences between the two political maneuvers. But whatever. Grab some cheese because you are about to be treated to a big glass of Neil Cavuto whine.Read more
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
