Martha MacCallum Says "Occupy" Supporting Third Graders Brainwashed?
In the cloud cukoo land of right wing Merkins, our children are being constantly bombarded by satanic, socialist, atheist propaganda which seeks to teach children that the USA is not the most awesome country that Jesus ever created. According to these true Merkins, librul education is actually deluding our precious innocents into thinking that hard work doesn't always reap its own rewards and that the captains of industry aren't benevolent father figures but corporatists who don't give a crap about anything other than record breaking profits. Income inequality, according to residents of the state of right wing delusions, is merely left wing indoctrination meant to create "class warfare" on the part of those who, regardless of their declining economic situations, should be grateful to live in "exceptional" Merka. And that's why, when some Virginia third grade students composed a song about the "99%," the right wing shills for the 1% went apoplectic about how this was "class warfare." Not surprisingly, Fox "News" provided some validation.Read more
Chris Wallace Lets His Bias Show As He Ridiculously Compares Mitt Romney’s Role At Bain Capital To President Obama And Solyndra
On Fox News Sunday today, host Chris Wallace may have thought he was playing the tough but fair host by repeatedly interrupting DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as she attempted to answer his question about why Democrats are attacking Mitt Romney. But a closer look at his behavior strongly suggests his real purpose was to discredit attacks on Romney’s history as a venture capitalist - via the ridiculous comparison to President Obama’s role in the Solyndra bankruptcy.Read more
Brian Kilmeade Scolds Tebow Mocking Football Player Who "Mocks God"
If the early Christians were as humorless as those members of the Fox News church of perpetual outrage, it's no wonder that they had some hard times. Today's martyrs are constantly whining about how they get no respect from the forces of satanic secularism. But if they want some insight into why they are lampooned, they need only to click their remotes to Fox News to see their fellow Jesus BFF, Brian Kilmeade, a high priest in the Fox Tim Tebow cult, make idiotic comments revealing his devotion to God and Tim Tebow (who, on Fox, is God). Kilmeade's latest pearl of wisdom involves statements from a football player who is obviously heading for a quick dunk in the Lake of Fire after blasphemous comments directed towards God and Tim Tebow who, on Fox, is a deity. And Brian is pissed - the same Brian Kilmeade who had to apologize for an anti-Islamic comment (only one of many). But he has God's and Tebow's back so it's all good.Read more
Brian Kilmeade, Eric Bolling And Fox Nation Gush Over Navy SEAL Who Punched Out Jesse Ventura
On The Five on Friday (1/6/12), the gang discussed Chris Kyle, the most lethal Navy SEAL sniper in American history.” Kyle has a new book out and he had been a guest on The O’Reilly Factor the night before. Brian Kilmeade, guest co-host for The Five, opened the discussion by saying, “But before we get into that (Kyle’s military work), listen to what I think is his greatest takedown ever.” Kilmeade was referring to Kyle’s claim to have punched out former Navy SEAL Jesse Ventura for “bad mouthing” the Iraq war, President Bush and America. Co-host Eric Bolling was even more pleased. Over at "civil," "tolerant" Fox Nation, they were also approving.Read more
More Defense Spending! Less For Everything Else!
Those Fox News neocons Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer are dying to make cuts to programs for seniors, education and other social programs. But now that President Obama has proposed cuts to military spending, they are outraged. It’s not like either of them is ever likely to be injured in any conflict but hey, why should they feel even a tad more vulnerable when we could cut back on school lunches or infrastructure or women’s reproductive rights?Read more
Death Wishes For Nancy Pelosi On FoxNews.com - And Rape, Too!
Co-authored by Aria
You may recall that over the holidays, Fox News engaged in hypocritical class warfare over Nancy Pelosi's and President Obama's Hawaiian vacations. Not surprisingly, FoxNews.com picked up the class warfare attack, at least on Pelosi. The readers reacted with real class, too - by wishing she gets killed and/or raped. Comments were eventually closed, but not before we were able to get some screen grabs. You can see that many of the disturbing comments were up for at least several hours. This is Fox News' modus operandi. They put up an inflammatory post and rather than properly moderate, they leave the comments there until the thread is eventually shut down. We've repeatedly posted about the longing for violence to Democrats in Fox News' online communities.Read more
O’Reilly And Goldberg On The Look-Out For Phony Charges Of Racism Against Republicans
During a discussion with Bernie Goldberg on The O’Reilly Factor last night (1/5/12), Bill O’Reilly said he is “very concerned” that the 2012 presidential campaign “will include charges of racism against people who criticize President Obama.” Not that he’s concerned about any actual racism against President Obama, especially from the likes of say, Donald Trump, or Hannity show regular, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. No, O’Reilly is concerned about false charges of racism against white people. “So we asked Bernie Goldberg to keep an eye on that situation,” O’Reilly told The Factor viewers.Read more
O’Reilly Boasts His Show Will “Play A Major Role In The Presidential Race”
Apparently, Bill O’Reilly is getting some heat from his tough interview with Rick Santorum the night after he won the Iowa primary (1/4/12). Last night (1/5/12), O’Reilly devoted 7:35 to his Talking Points segment – which normally lasts two or three minutes – to defending his interview. O’Reilly even made some interesting, legitimate points. But he damaged his own credibility by leading off with a boast about his own self-importance.Read more
GQ Peels Back Curtain On Murdoch-Ailes Tensions
There have long been rumors of tension between Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes. An ironically named article in GQ, “Why I Love Fox News,” takes a look at some of the machinations within News Corp. Writer Michael Wolff, who also wrote the Rupert Murdoch authorized biography “The Man Who Owns The News; Inside The Secret World Of Rupert Murdoch”, dishes some of the dirt on the feud between News Corp. on the one side—represented by Murdoch and his family—and the Fox News Empire on the other side, represented by Roger Ailes. During the research for his book Wolffe had unprecedented access to Murdoch and, no doubt, his thinking. Wolffe writes:Read more
Hannity Promotes Baseless Theory That Obama Will Start War With Iran To Get Re-Elected
Ordinarily, Sean Hannity and other Fox News conservatives salivate over the thought of going to war against Iran. They’ve been talking it up for years. But now that Donald Trump – that great expert on President Obama – has said he believes Obama will initiate a war in order to help himself win re-election, all of a sudden, they’re not so enthusiastic. On Hannity’s Great American Panel segment last night (1/5/12), guests Angela McGlowan and former Senator Alfonse D’Amato immediately agreed with Trump without even bothering to ask for any facts to support the theory. Oh, nobody seemed to mind going to war and having (other people's) blood shed. No, they squawked about such an abuse of power. But the real horror seemed to be that they thought this hypothetical ploy might work to get Obama re-elected.Read more
