Bernard Goldberg seemed a little more cocky than usual last night, during his weekly appearance on the Factor. Instead of whining overmuch about why the evil liberal media are more interested in Marco Rubio’s little drinking malfunction than they are in the Benghazi cover-up, he supplied Bill O’Reilly with some flattering theories: it's because they are compensating for Roger Ailes’s enormous influence, and because they’re scared of Rubio.
O’Reilly started the segment by playing the “testy” exchange between John McCain and David Gregory of Meet the Press, on the subject of the Benghazi cover-up. Why, asked Goldberg, was the media not probing for answers on Benghazi? Why are they “complicit?” with Obama and not holding him accountable? Well, it had to do with two people, Goldberg propounded: Barack Obama and Roger Ailes. (Ailes!?!?! Read on and you shall know all.) Obama, because “the media has never been so in love with a president before… because he’s young, he’s cool, he’s black and he’s liberal. If he were conservative they’d crucify him.” And Ailes? “Fox has become so popular and so influential,” Goldberg replied, “that I think the other media, you know, the networks, the New York Times and other places like that, are compensating for Fox’s influence. So they’re no longer simply biased. Now they’ve moved beyond bias into activism.” (Really? If Fox is so influential why aren’t the other networks trying to grab its viewers by out-right-winging it? And that ever so somewhat contradicts your last remark about the media loving Obama because he’s liberal. And speaking of activism... oh never mind. Back to the blog.)
Next on the agenda was what O’Reilly called “the pipeline” (i.e. from the news to the pundits to Saturday Night Live) to “diminish” Marco Rubio for that post-SOTU lunge for the water glass. Yes, said Goldberg, the media that showed so little interest in Benghazi is all over “Water-gate.” They’re trying to “buffoonerize” (O’Reilly’s word) Rubio because they fear him, he went on, and they only go after those they fear, those who are a threat. After Rubio appeared on the cover of “establishment” Time magazine, “that’s when he became a threat, that’s when he was in their crosshairs.”
So: first he lunges for the water, then he'll lunge for the White House. Are you afraid yet, gentle reader, like those liberal media types?
And this does include a few other claims he made that he should count himself lucky he was proven full of shit on.
Trade out a water bottle for a cup of Coca-Cola.
During Bush’s term…..12 attacks on American embassies…..52 Americans dead…..any bets where our trolls head was during this time?
This won’t doom Rubio, but no one remembers a thing he said in his speech and he’ll be remembered by the majority who don’t follow politics closely as “that guy, who took the drink”.
Of course you don’t really have an answer for any of this other than “Well, what about when FOX did this” or “FOX showed this”. You guys spend all your time mad at FOX for doing the exact same thing that all the other News Orgs do (that you ironically see as “reporting the news”).
And yet you can’t seem to stay away or stop talking about us – even though you’ve been repeatedly banned.
And in reality, the “librul” media has not ignored Benghazi. Every single outlet has reported on it. Analyzed it. Beat it to death. The only difference between the “librul” media and FoxGOPTV is that they realize that all the questions have been answered. They’ve discovered that there is no “cover up”. But the stupids at FoxGOPTV want there to be a “cover up” so badly that they’re willing to fabricate one. They lie constantly that the “librul” media is ignoring the story. But they’re safe in their lies because they know that their stupid sheep believe them. Case in point – the troll who seems to enjoy getting his ass kicked is furiously repeating the FoxGOPTV lie.
If goldfart wasn’t such a GOPig ass kisser, he’d be asking why none of these GOPigs were the least bit concerned about all the attacks on U.S. Embassys, and all the Americans killed during dumbya’s reign. If goldfart wasn’t such a GOPig ass kisser, he’d admit that the only reason GOPigs are pretending to be concerned about Benghazi is to attack and undermine President Obama. But that’ll never happen because goldfart enjoys being a GOPig ass kisser.
Nobody I know fears Rubio. He’s a proven liar, just like Etch-a-Sketch Rmoney and, well, the majority of GOPigs. That’s nothing to fear. What I’m concerned with are the idiots who are stupid enough to believe GOPig’s lies and vote for them.
Yeah, come back when you have something better.
