Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Goes Three Rounds Against Fox & Friends Tag Team And Wins

No one has ever accused those Foxy Friends in the morning of being neither “fair” nor “balanced.” In fact, Fox “News” insists the morning show is part of the opinion side of the network [even though the opinions are pretty much indistinguishable from what’s on the “news” side of the network]. Yesterday’s 3-against-1 on the Curvy Couch only proves the rule that the morning show is Happy Talk disguised as GOP propaganda. All three Fox and Friends bravely went up against lone Congressional Representative, and Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. DWS proved more than capable of going several rounds with the Curvy Couch Tag Team and they never laid a glove on her. Each time DWS exhausted one of the Three Stooges, another one popped up. Not only did DWS defeat them on points, she managed to get in some serious blows of her own. While almost 10 minutes long, it’s well worth watching the whole thing. Or, you can read my exciting play-by-play below the fold.

Fox’s Cashin’ In Endorses Perry’s Idea To Suspend All Regulations

By Brian

Breathing dirty air or uninspected food? No problem for several of the Fox News regulars of Cashin’ In, part of the Saturday morning “business block” line up on August 20, 2011. Host Cheryl Casone called Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry’s idea to suspend all federal regulations for six months an “interesting idea.” When that “interesting idea” was challenged by guest Christian Dorsey, who suggested that breathing clean air and eating safe food were beneficial to society, Casone dismissed the concern by saying you can always sue if there’s arsenic in your Big Mac. Seriously.

Outfoxed By Democratic Governor O’Malley, “Liberal” Van Susteren Leaps To Defend Republicans

“Liberal” Greta Van Susteren obviously got more than she bargained – or was prepared for – during an interview with Maryland’s Democratic governor, Martin O’Malley Wednesday night (8/10/11). O’Malley was there to discuss how his state's sound financial footing might be threatened by the federal government's credit downgrade. But when O’Malley seized the framing of the conversation and insisted on making calm, civil but pointed criticisms of Republicans and their policies, Van Susteren couldn’t handle it. I think it’s crucial that Democrats who go on Fox seize control of the agenda just this way. For that, O’Malley is our latest Top Dog.

Erica Payne Challenges Fox News’ War On The Unemployed

Our newest Top Dog is Erica Payne of the Agenda Project. Payne was on The O’Reilly Factor last night discussing unemployment insurance, i.e. Fox News’ push to reduce same. Even “liberal” Juan Williams, the guest host, pushed the idea that those receiving unemployment benefits were sitting around on the taxpayers’ dime when they could be working at lower-paying jobs. It was no surprise given that Williams opened the segment by “asking,” “Have American liberals run out of credible solutions to fix this economy?” Payne did a terrific job, not just of arguing her position, but on pushing back against the “Let them work at McDonald’s and stop soaking the rich" mentality.
