If ever you doubted that Fox News’ interest in Benghazi was about anything other than using it as political fodder against Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration, check out last night’s “debate” between Bill O’Reilly and James Carville. That is, it’s a debate only if your definition includes the host browbeating the guest and declaring he’s not interested in the facts.Read more
Fox News loves to present itself as the champion of troops and, as evidenced in Fox's week long propaganda blitz directed towards critics of the movie, "Lone Survivor," Fox is also the champion of whatever war that the US is involved in. It's fascinating. I don't seem to recall that there was anywhere near as much Fox outrage over the abysmal conditions at Walter Reed as there seems to be about movie critics who feel that this movie, co-written by the liberal hating sole survivor of a Navy Seals fire fight in Afghanistan, is pro-war propaganda. As of last night, there were five Fox pieces in which Fox talkers portrayed the movie's critic's as downright un-American. So it wasn't a surprise that the oh, so patriotic Bill O'Reilly, who only served with a pen, got in on the action on last night's Factor during which O'Reilly made his usual baseless claims. As Jon Stewart says "crank up the grampalodian!"Read more
On The Kelly File last night, Megyn Kelly tried to use President Obama’s planned Vatican visit as yet another excuse to attack him. But thanks to the intemperate remarks of her Obama-hating guest, the segment is more likely to be remembered for his crude comments about sex education.Read more
The movie blockbuster "Lone Survivor," is about a group of Navy Seals, in Afghanistan, who were involved in a firefight that left only one survivor. While it seems innocuous enough, Fox News talkers have their patriotic panties in a bunch about an Atlantic Monthly article and bloggers who are using their First Amendment right to opine that the movie glorifies war. The writers are not defaming the soldiers involved in the mission; but that is how Fox News, the media booster for George W Bush's not so excellent adventure in Iraq, is playing it. It must be a big f**king deal for Roger Ailes because as of today, there have been five segments on it. Why the propaganda blitz? Is Fox trying to increase the box office take? Is it being used as an opportunity to smear those who are anti-war? Or is it because Marcus Luttrell, the "survivor" Seal who co-wrote the movie material, really hates the liberal media? Go figure!
On Your World, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) fear mongered that tax payers will wind up having to bail out health insurers thanks to ObamaCare. But why fact check? Just because Bachmann has a miserable record of promoting falsehoods? Apparently, that’s no reason to doubt a Republican her on “we report, you decide” Fox News.Read more
What happens when a Fox News contributor calls our president and attorney general "vile and disgusting racists?" Why, he gets invited on Fox News prime time to offers his opinions about Rev. Jeremiah Wright's criticisms of President Obama at a Martin Luther King event!Read more
Believe it or not, Fox News is defending President Barack Obama - now that they can use him to attack Rev. Jeremiah Wright and the Chicago Teachers Union. Rev. Wright spoke critically about Obama at a Martin Luther King event held by the union and this is big news on Fox.Read more
I’m sure that by now, most News Hounds readers are aware that a new book reveals Hillary Clinton’s aides kept a so-called “enemies list.” However, if you want to know exactly how dead-on-arrival this “scandal” should have been, you only have to look to Karl Rove, who offered up his $0.02 on the matter to say that lists of this nature are an institutionalized political practice - right before he tried to explain why Hillary’s list should be an outrage, anyway.Read more
