There was big news about Gov. Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” scandal yesterday. The guy who was in charge of the George Washington Bridge the day the lanes closed says he has evidence Christie knew about it. You may recall that Christie adamantly denied knowing about the closures and blamed them on rogue employees.Read more
On Wednesday, Neil Cavuto discussed President Obama’s State of the Union Address and the Republican response with five guests. Not one was a Democrat.Read more
As Newshounds Ellen reported, sting videographer James O'Keefe is not a paragon of ethical standards. And neither are his videos which are manipulated to make his subjects appear as if they are doing something illegal. His attempted video entrapment of ACORN workers resulted in O'Keefe having to pay $100,000 to settle a suit filed by a worker who claimed that he was misrepresented. But O'Keefe's shady past isn't a problem for those on Fox News who use his videos to discredit those on the Fox/right wing enemies list. Last week Megyn Kelly his latest video, which purports to show Wendy Davis' followers mocking her wheelchair bound GOP opponent, to attack Ms. Davis. Fox & Friends, who played part of the video, used it to attack Ms. Davis. But O'Keefe is no stranger to this happy chat show where his bogus ACORN videos were pimped, in 2009, on a segment featuring O'Keefe dressed as a pimp (Not how he dressed for the stings). In underscoring why Fox viewers are misinformed, Brian Kilmeade assured the audience of the video's truthiness!Read more
Sean Hannity and RNC chairman Reince Priebus were a vision of racial hypocrisy as they sanctimoniously condemned MSNBC over a tweet suggesting – not baselessly– that “maybe the rightwing will hate” a bi-racial Cheerios commercial that will make “everyone else” go “awww.” As if far worse rhetoric were not a regular staple of Fox News.Read more
Quick, somebody get Bill O'Reilly some smelling salts. The woman he can't stop obsessing over, Sandra Fluke, has announed she is "strongly considering" running for Congress. Since the district is heavily Democratic, she'd be heavily favored to win, should she get the nomination. UPDATEDRead more
Sean Hannity was obviously tickled pink about a Daily Show segment in which a cast of New Yorkers satirically begged him not to leave New York. It was actually a hilariously devastating critique of him. But, apparently Hannity's vanity trumped all. Tonight, he played excerpts from the video – but with the comic criticism edited out.Read more
Once again, a Public Policy Polling poll found that Fox News is both the most trusted and least trusted television news outlet. That’s because Republicans en masse choose it as “most trusted” and Democrats split their “most trusted” vote among the other networks. However, it’s also the news network that wins the distinction of being the clear choice for “least trusted” among Americans.Read more
Bill O’Reilly: There’s No War On Women But ‘Pinhead’ Republicans Better ‘Wise Up’ And Raise The Minimum Wage!
Bill O’Reilly last night insisted the "war on women stuff is a ruse," and there’s no pay disparity between women and men. But just when you might have wanted to start shouting at the TV set, he smacked down Republican Kate Obenshain with an impassioned argument that it’s time for the GOP to support raising the minimum wage. Or else forget winning the White House for decades.Read more
The hypocrisy of the Christian right, and its mouthpiece Fox News, is truly amazing. After gay rights groups called for a boycott of Chick Fil-A, the right wing and Fox News went ballistic. Fox & Friends suggested that a boycott would be "un-American. A Chick Fil-A "appreciation day" was organized by Mike Huckabee who also organized a Facebook campaign to get the homophobic (it's biblical so it's OK) Duck Dynasty patriarch back on the show after First Amendment hating gays objected to Phil Roberston's comments. But now that a TX anti-choice organization is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies, over a tweet in which they linked to a Huffington Post story naming Wendy Davis as one of several possible contenders for "woman of the year," Fox, so far, (it just broke) is mum - except for Megyn Kelly's denigration of the tweet (and Wendy Davis) before the boycott was announced. Fox has targeted the Scouts before, but now we have Wendy Davis as part of the meme. You just can't make this stuff up!Read more
