Peter Johnson Claims Occupy Movement Is Unacceptable

The “Fear and Balanced Network,” aka The Fox “News” Channel, seems happiest when its personalities are able to instill fear in its audience. Among the Fear and Balanced things you should fear include, but are not limited to, Muslims; labor unions; The Phony Wars on Christmas and Halloween; Immigrants, especially the undocumented kind; creeping Socialism; creeping Sharia Law; the creeping President of the United States of ‘Merka; and Black ‘Merkins in general that are neither president, nor Herman Cain. However, judging by the sheer amount of airtime devoted to it in such a short period of time—not to mention the over-the-top demagoguery—the thing Fox “News” wants its viewers to fear the most these days is the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Seeming to be leading the Fox pitchfork crowd are Eric Bolling and Peter Johnson, Jr., both of whom go farther in their condemnation of OWS than other Fox “News” readers. Therefore, it was a glorious two-fer Friday when Eric Bolling (filling in on Fox and Friends for one of the blonde Foxy Friends) hosted the Knight of Malta, Peter Johnston, Jr.

Brit Hume Suggests Sexual Harassment Law To Blame For Herman Cain’s Problems

By Brian

It’s true that Herman Cain may be innocent of sexual harassment, that his employer, the National Restaurant Association, may have made a strategic decision to settle rather than litigate against two women and that the matter remains, perhaps unfairly, on Cain’s record now. But Brit Hume took this possibility as an indictment of sexual harassment laws rather than, say, Cain’s failure to adequately deal with the questions surrounding his conduct. (H/T Media Matters)

Last night, Bill O’Reilly made an impassioned argument justifying the rich getting richer. His guest Dick Morris aided and abetted with the cockamamie argument that the poor are really getting richer, too.

How Fox News Uses Weak Democrats And News Corp Synergy To Play Pretend

Nothing demonstrates how frightened The Right Wing Establishment™ is of the Occupy movement than the continuing, and seemingly never-ending, Fox “News” effort to smear the world-wide protests. The Fox tele-prompter readers have used every trick in the book, to the point where the so-called news network is actually touting the Nazi Party’s endorsement of OWS. Leave it to Doug Schoen—a so-called Democratic Pollster who was awarded “Democratic Wanker of the Decade” in these pages—to take Fox’s side. Yesterday he used the pages of the Wall Street Journal (owned by News Corp, not coincidentally the parent company of Fox News), to publish an absolutely stupid column titled “Polling the Occupy Wall Street Crowd.” And, leave it to Stewart Varney to appear with the Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends to pretend that Doug Schoen is onto something when he’s really full of crap.

Bill O'Reilly's Strange Sexual Obsessions

Aging traditional Catholic Bill O'Reilly does seem to have an obsession with sex. As we know from his spy novel, "Those Who Trespass" and the Gina Mackris tapes, Bill does seem to have a fascination with sneaking up on women who are showering. (He's clean?) We also know that he has a penchant for being the voyeur as shown in his many videos of scantily or unclad women. We know that he had an obsession with Miley Cyrus and reprimanded her for wearing "short pants" and showing a bit of her bra in a photo. (He's into couture?) Obviously, this all reflects a certain - ah - fantasy life that is too disgusting to think about. And while he hasn't been doing any "T & A" segments lately, it's apparent that he's still a very kinky boy that you don't take home to mother. In talking about the Occupy Wall Street people he said: "three weeks is enough. It's dirty and filthy, there's rats running all over, there's dope all over the place. They're having sex outside at night around. (inaudible) Does that say anything about the entire movement." And he knows this how? As an intrepid reporter is he engaging in "hands-on" reporting or just observing from afar. Nuff said. Ewwwwwwww!!!!!
