Fox News Censors Scientist From Discussing Climate Change – Then Smears Him After Revealing Their Agenda
Yesterday, Scientific American editor Michael Moyer visited Fox & Friends to discuss future trends in science and technology. The number one trend, as he saw it, is climate change. But he was asked by the producer to pick something else. Moyer tweeted about his experience and Fox News got spiteful. Today, they smeared Moyer as a “coward” and co-host Brian Kilmeade urged Fox viewers to attack Moyer on Twitter.Read more
Poor Mike Huckabee. When Chick Fil-A's owner, Dan Cathy came under pressure from gay groups over his public condemnation of same sex marriage, an irate Mike Huckabee organized a Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day to encourage folks to combine their biblical homo hating with a big, heaping serving of Chick Fil-A chicken. But it seems that Dan Cathy, in what could be a smart business decision to expand the restaurant chain, has decided to temper his public opposition to same sex marriage and "is now going to leave it to politicians and others to discuss social issues." Huckabee is not a happy camper. But rather than direct his ire towards Cathy, he is blaming gay bullies for forcing Cathy to cave. Hate group leader, Tony Perkins agrees. Awww.....Read more
In the “how insensitive can you be” department, you might put Bill O’Reilly’s attempt to smear an African American mother - who wrongly left her kids in a hot car while she went to a job interview - by comparing her to Donald Sterling.Read more
Basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar visited The O’Reilly Factor tonight to discuss Donald Sterling. But for some reason, O’Reilly also found it necessary to quiz Abdul-Jabbar about his patriotism. As if being black cast it in doubt in some way.Read more
While Bill O'Reilly seems to have simmered down from the days of "f_uck it, we'll do it live" and cutting his guests' mics, it appears that he still has some anger issues. His awareness of the problem was demonstrated in a 2013 "Tip of the Day" during which he advised his audience on how to "vent" their anger. He recounted how, earlier the day, after he got angry (justified because "somebody did a bad thing" to him), he went into a private room, closed the door, and started screaming lots of F bombs. But his inability to follow his own advice was recently demonstrated when Bill ran into Gabriel Sherman, the author of the Roger Ailes bio, "The Loudest Voice in the Room, a book which contains the story of the O'Reilly's sexual harassment suit and other good stuff like how O'Reilly "terrorized" a female employee. Suffice to say, Bill is still one, angry dude.Read more
Gawker reported today that the reason Fox News anchor Shepard Smith remains in the closet is because Fox News won’t let him come out. Not only that, when Smith tried to come out, Gawker said, he got demoted. Fox has denied the allegation.Read more
Fortunately for Dean Angstadt, he had a friend who refused to let him take everything Fox News says about the Affordable Care Act as truth. Otherwise, this newly-insured heart patient would likely be dead.Read more
Does Fox News Know That Shirley Dobson Sees National Day Of Prayer As Answer To 'Evil' Same Sex Marriage?
Fox News, in attacking the Military Freedom From Religion Foundation, provided a warm and affirming platform for the National Day of Prayer. Megyn Kelly interviewed former Focus on the Family head, Dr. James Dobson, and his wife Shirley Dobson, both of whom are closely connected to the National Day of Prayer Task Force which organizes a prayer event in the federal Cannon House Building. Peter Johnson Jr. spoke with the vice-chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. Both interviews were critical of Weinstein and his group which is not, as both I and Chris Rodda point out, an "atheist group." But in supporting the National Day of Prayer, is Fox also supporting Shirley Dobson's belief that only by glorifying Jesus' dad can we rid this nation of the scourge of same sex marriage and other evil liberal stuff?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck's 'PC Police' Meme Validated By Editor Of College Newspaper With History Of Racial Insensitivity
While Fox News warmly embraces conservatives who feel besieged by the forces of godless secular forces, it dismisses those who are offended by conservatives as "politically correct" liberals who make life miserable for good conservatives. Yesterday, Elisabeth Hasselbeck invoked "PC" in her smear of a Dartmouth student who objected to a "Phiesta" themed fraternity party. Her guest from the Dartmouth Review, Nicholas Desatnick, validated the message about pesky minorities getting uppity. But while Hasselbeck was showcasing him as a voice for Dartmouth students, what she didn't mention is that his paper is not the official college news outlet but an independent entity formed in 1980 by "four discontented campus conservatives." And when it comes to racial issue, this newspaper has some junk in the trunk. But then this is Fox & Friends...Read more
Is Megyn Kelly vying to be Donald Sterling’s white Santa? She certainly seems determined to give the guy a break. First, a Kelly File producer showed up at the NBA press conference and suggested Sterling’s punishment over remarks made in private was a “slippery slope.” Then Kelly spent a segment on The Kelly File explicitly suggesting Sterling was getting a raw deal. But it’s funny: when ACORN workers were illegally recorded – and made part of deceptive videos that took down ACORN – Kelly was all hunky-dory about it.Read more
