Recently, Fox's Judge Andrew Napolitano went after President Abraham Lincoln and his legacy. Among other things, Napolitano accused Lincoln of needlessly starting the Civil War. Watch how Stewart and The Daily Show's Larry Wilmore shredded Napolitano's argument!Read more
Dick Cheney visited the Hannity show last night for the obvious purpose of providing a high-ranking attack on the Obama administration’s decision to downsize the military. But, unfortunately for them, Cheney undercut his own credibility when he suggested that food stamps should be cut more instead. Either Cheney didn’t know or didn’t care how much military families rely on food stamps.Read more
Andrea Tantaros, Martha MacCallum: If Gays Don't Shop Where They're Not Wanted, They Won't Be Discriminated Against!
Anti-gay Christian victimhood has been taken to a whole new level with the passage of the so called Arizona Jim Crow law which was passed by the assembly and now awaits a signature or veto from the governor. The law allows business owners, on the basis of their religious beliefs, to refuse to provide service to gay and lesbian customers. This morning, "news" host Martha MacCallum and her guests discussed this law. While Juan Williams said the law is discriminatory, Andrea Tantaros suggested that the controversy over laws like this, which make Christians look like bigots, could be avoided if gay folks avoid anti-gay business. MacCallum recommended that "the market" forces take over. I guess if African-Americans had only avoided all those segregated hotels, restaurants, water coolers, etc. we wouldn't have had to deal with those troublesome Civil Rights that made white Americans look like bigots?Read more
That Fox News moonlights as religious broadcasting was evident, once again, on this morning's Fox & Friends First when the gang talked, in credulous terms, about how a bus driver would have been killed if not for his pocket bible which stopped the bullets. According to the leggy blonde hosts, the driver can "literally thank the words of God." Ordained minister and one of a few chosen African-Americans to host Fox week-end shows (no regular black hosts during the week), Kelly Wright said that "the good book saved his life." The chyron stated, as Fox Fact, that this was "divine intervention." As was said in Plan 9 From Outer Space, "that proves it." But what would the Fox say if the driver had been carrying a stash of porn?
If you follow Rupert Murdoch on Twitter (which I do), you know that he regularly spouts off his conservative opinions without any pretense at being fair and balanced. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes recently discussed Murdoch's tweets, saying the media mogul “uses Twitter like an angry dude who spends all day on conservative message boards. He doesn’t like something? He’s hittin’ 'tweet.'”Read more
Cavuto on Business spent a lot of time defending Walmart this weekend. In particular, the show focused on Mike Rowe’s new ad for the stores promoting their purchase of $250 billion in U.S. goods. But before long, the guests were taking cheap shots at Walmart and Occupy Wall Street protesters.Read more
As I have often said, Fox & Friends is the place where Jesus and T&A peacefully co-exist. And that's because the curvy couch Christians know that Christian men have their man needs which, on Fox & Friends, are met with Victoria's Secret models, Hooters girls, and swimsuit models. Last week, in a stunning example of the - uh - the wide range of content on Fox & Friends, Elisabeth Hasselbeck interviewed a Utah mom who bought $567 worth of "indecent" T-shirts rather than allow them to be displayed in a store window where innocent young eyes could see them. During the same week, the morning family values krewe interviewed a couple of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and, as a visual aid, showed the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover which featured a copious amount of bodacious bootay, if you know what I'm saying. Something for everyone on Fox & Friends!Read more
As Tim Dickinson wrote, in Rolling Stone, Fox & Friends is "the morning happy-talk show that Ailes uses as one of his primary vehicles to inject his venom into the media bloodstream." So I don't know if official Fox priest, Fr. Jonathan Morris, didn't get an advance copy of the script or if he was just being a tad rebellious (in need of discipline?!) but, for the second time since the beginning of the year, the little propaganda priest didn't go with the propaganda flow! In January, he didn't agree with what appeared to be Fox's message regarding a brain dead teen. Yesterday, he didn't seem to be following the scripted Fox misrepresentation of a humorous and innocuous story, about a US Olympic half-pipe gold medalist, which Fox was clearly intending to use to bash the librul media as being anti-family and anti-Christian. Propaganda fail?!Read more
With Ted Nugent so much in the news lately, there has been a lot of interest in our 2007 post in which we published Nugent's Selective Service record. Not only did the tough-talking, gun-loving "patriot" avoid serving his country in a war when he had the chance, there's a very real possibility he lied to avoid doing so. Funny how Fox doesn't seem very interested in that, isn't it?Read more
If you watched any Fox News the last few days, you probably know about their hysterical outrage at the 2014 FCC study. The way they went on about it, one would think that this was a smoking gun proving Obama-run Tyranny. However, in the midst of their obsessive fear mongering, they left out a few facts and contexts. Let’s run through it.Read more
