You've probably noticed that our columns have gotten wonky the last few days. I've been working unsuccessfully at resolving the issue. I'm hopeful I'll be able to get someone at NationBuilder tomorrow and solve it. Meanwhile, if you're not seeing the "sign in" box, it's probably at the bottom of the page. Sorry for the inconvenience!
One shudders to think how famous "dick" Tucker Carlson learned about sex. But that he is clearly uncomfortable with young people getting factually based sex education which harnesses the newest technology was evident in yesterday's Fox & Friends which explored the evil ramifications of a new app, produced by the NYC Health Department, to offer information to teens about a range of topics related to sex and sexuality. But what really disturbed Carlson was that the app has locations of places where young slutty sluts can, OMG, get abortions - as well as STD testing and other health services which not mentioned by Tucker. The app was developed to help cut down on teen pregnancy which, for some in the right wing, should be "celebrated" except, of course, when said teen and baby become "takers." And as far as STD's, conservative kids are clean teens who would never get those. Right?Read more
When challenged about the accuracy of their "fair & balanced" slogan, the top brass at Fox News claimed that its "news" programs, such as Bret Baier's nightly "Special Report," are objective. But their definition of objectivity is a bit odd considering that factually inaccurate information, dare we say lies, is part of their supposed "objective" commentary. Such was the case during Friday's "Special Report" panel discussion when Charles Krauthammer, for the second time, provided factually inaccurate information, dare we say lie, about the supposed media black out of the Gosnell trial. It's ironic that while Fox is trying to present themselves as doing due diligence about covering a trial that the evil librul media has supposedly ignored, their supposedly objective coverage includes, in addition to anti-choice propaganda, inaccurate information - dare we say lies?Read more
Fox Nation has sunk to new levels of despicableness with its deliberate exploitation of the horrific case of three kidnapped women in Cleveland. The women endured a ten-year Hell on Earth but to Fox Nation boss – and O’Reilly Factor stalker - Jesse Watters, it was little more than an opportunity to hype Fox’s completely unrelated “Benghazi-Gate” that the network has been doing its best to use to destroy the political careers of President Obama and Hillary Clinton.Read more
Earlier this week, I wrote about Geraldo Rivera’s reversal in the wake of reports that Fox chief Roger Ailes had ordered his mic cut during a contentious discussion in which Rivera argued that allegations against the Obama administration over “Benghazi-gate” were overblown and politically motivated. Rivera has since denied the rumor in a tweet: “Contrary to published accounts no one at Fox News ever either cut my mic or told me what to say…” But Rivera’s change of heart has been undeniable. On The O’Reilly Factor tonight, he not only joined his colleagues in criticizing the Obama administration over Benghazi, he joined in their efforts to make comparisons to Watergate.Read more
Bill O’Reilly donned his Media Police Chief hat last night and spent several minutes going over a chart showing how much other news outlets covered Benghazi, down to the second. After his review, he trotted out Media Police Deputy Bernard Goldberg to help adjudge the usual suspects guilty. But Goldberg wasn’t quite the Fox News lackey one might have expected. In the middle of his “liberal media” complaints, he fingered Mike Huckabee for saying that Benghazi would prevent President Obama from completing his second term. “This is wishful thinking masquerading as political analysis,” Goldberg charged. Even though he hinted that he shared the same wishful thinking.
In case anyone out there is gullible enough to believe that Fox News' interest in Benghazi is about dead Americans, check out how Fox host Eric Bolling came up with an anti-Hillary Clinton ad, aired it as news on The Five and then offered it up to Republicans. In a thinly veiled attempt to pretend he wasn't being partisan, he threw Joe Biden's name into the mix. (H/T Media Matters)Read more
Eric Bolling ‘Just Asks,’ What if Sasha Or Malia Obama Or Chelsea Clinton Had Been Killed Or Injured In Benghazi
Apparently, Eric Bolling just can’t stand anyone to be more despicable than he is. So with a recent spotlight on Andrea Tantaros’ outrageous “question” about whether or not President Obama would put 15 year-old Malia Obama on birth control (now that Plan B has been approved for teen use), yesterday, Bolling suggested “we’d be asking different questions” if either of the Obama daughters or Chelsea Clinton had been killed or injured in Benghazi. Classy.Read more
Of all the politicizing around Benghazi, Sean Hannity’s allegation tonight that President Obama “may just want to keep his guard up” because Hillary Clinton will sabotage him over Benghazi, in order to protect her 2016 presidential candidacy, may take the cake. At least, it’s neck in neck with Bill O’Reilly’s suggestion on Monday that Obama would bomb Syria to “wag the dog” and distract attention from Benghazi. But hey, maybe they’re both right!Read more
