I don’t know what’s worse, torture psychologist James Mitchell spending 25 or so minutes defending his practices on live television or “straight news anchor” Megyn Kelly helping him exonerate himself.Read more
If you’ve watched Sean Hannity defend the Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing unarmed Michael Brown, you’ve almost certainly seen Hannity quote “Witness 40,” who claimed that Brown charged Wilson’s police car “like a football player, head down” as evidence that Wilson was justified in his actions. But today, The Smoking Gun revealed that Witness 40 has a long record of dishonesty, a few felonies and lots of racism.Read more
Brian Kilmeade: Australian Hostage Incident Is 'Muslim Extremism' Even If Prime Minister Says It Isn't!
Fox News is, as described in the Center for American Progress report "Fear Incorporated," as an "echo chamber" for American Islamophobia. So it wasn't a big surprise that Fox News, without knowing the actual facts, would use the Australian "terror" incident as an opportunity to fear monger about global Islamic jihad. What was interesting, though, was that Brian all-terrorists-are-Muslims Kilmeade would present, as a credible source for his hysterical hyperbole, a former sports reporter turned "terrorism expert" who has said that gays and liberals are allied with radical Muslims because they hate American and Jesus, too. But, as Kilmeade informed us, this incident in Australia is "Muslim extremism" even if the Australians won't acknowledge it. So there!Read more
As the Sydney hostage crisis was still unfolding in Australia, Fox & Friends broke away for a dispatch from the domestic horror of the War on Christmas.Read more
The Sydney hostage taking makes the Fox & Friends hosts think of all the reasons we should love torture even more than before.Read more
One of Fox's plethora of culture war wedge issues is about how Hollywood is a bastion of liberals - a right wing meme that reached its height in the McCarthy era red baiting. And while those days are over, Fox, in an effort to keep hate alive, frequently lambastes those in Hollywood who hate Jesus and America. Last week, the patriots on Fox's "The Five" whined about supposed anti-military bias in this year's selection of Golden Globe nominees because the movies "Unbroken" and "American Sniper" were "snubbed." Eric Bolling whined about "liberal nutjobs" in Hollywood.Yet, Bolling and the gang don't seem to have any problem hanging with the Hollywood homiesRead more
Former NYPD Detective and Fox News contributor Bo Dietl repeatedly announced on the air Friday that he will run for New York City mayor in 2017 against Bill de Blasio. Host Neil Cavuto should have probed to find out if Dietl is serious because if he is, he should be removed from the Fox payroll pronto.Read more
Eric Bolling is a devout Catholic who considers himself "as Christian as they come." He goes to daily Mass where he lights candles for his Fox pals. Because he feels an obligation to "stand up" for his faith, Bolling once kicked an atheist off of a Fox business show! And when it comes to abortion and birth control, Bolling stands firmly with the Catholic Church. But funny, he isn't quite on board with church teachings when it comes to immigration and torture which Vatican bishops, in reacting to the Senate report on torture, said was "a betrayal of human values and should no longer be used as an interrogation technique." Is the smug, self-righteous Eric Bolling (and his fellow Fox torture supporting Catholics) a "cafeteria Catholic?" Oh, nooo......
