Greta Van Susteren announced the big endorsement we’ve (not) been waiting for last night: Todd Palin has decided to support Newt Gingrich. That’s right, not Sarah Palin but her husband, Todd, has decided Gingrich is best. Not only that, Greta scored a personal interview for all the deets! File this one under “No Republican Cheerleading Too Trivial For Fox News” along with that Christine O’Donnell endorsement of Mitt Romney.Read more
If ever there was proof of Fox Nation's blatant disregard for its own stated purpose of tolerance, civility and "fair and balanced coverage of the news," it's one of their latest "fired up" posts called, Is the Obama Regime Messing With the WH Visitor Logs? Calling the Obama administration the "Obama regime" is deliberately inflammatory enough but if you actually read the article, it's a blatant attempt to suggest something sinister about the Obama administration over nothing. Well, unless you think that leaving out the names of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton from an official list of attendees at a White House party in 2009 in sinister.Read more
While Fox's "War on Christmas" is seasonal, Fox's patented "war on Christians" is ongoing because, as we all know, Merkin Christians are being persecuted at a level not seen since Nero. And as the mouthpiece for the church of the perpetually persecuted Christians, Fox & Friends is always willing to provide a pulpit from which to preach the gospel of that victimhood which, according to Jon Stewart, is "the true genius of what Fox has accomplished." Uber Christian warrior princess and veteran of the Fox "war on Christmas," Gretchen Carlson is very concerned about what the godless hordes are doing to this Christian nation. Yesterday, she did her Christian duty during her interview with the sister of mega church pastor, Joel Osteen, about the anti-Christian forces of satanic, secular darkness.Read more
As I reported in an earlier thread, the right wing world went all apocalyptic over the "Occupy" supporting song written byVirginia third graders. Alleged Fox "news" anchor, Martha MacCallum just couldn't believe that children would do such a librul/commie/ pinko thing. And not surprisingly, "the morning happy-talk show that Ailes uses as one of his primary vehicles to inject his venom into the media bloodstream," otherwise known as "Fox & Friends" seized the issue in order to promote their ongoing propaganda about how the librul/commie/pinko school system is trying to turn our precious innocents into raging Marxists by creating "class warfare." Last Thursday, Fox & Friends wall of genius, otherwise known as Steve Doocy, reported on this travesty as part of their ongoing series, "The Trouble with Schools" which is essentially right wing propaganda that feeds the Fox News meme of how the librul/commie/pinko public school system is creating tiny Trotskeys.Read more
Monday morning, 6:50am, #2 pencil in hand, a clean scratchpad, and fully prepared for Brad Stine’s weekly appearance on Fox and Friends. However, I was not prepared for Stine’s new haircut. Clearly his greasy meth tweeker look wasn’t working for him. But that’s no excuse to go to an ersatz Frank Luntz look, right on down to the bad toupee. That is a bad toupee, isn’t it? No matter because, as discussed previously, there is no topic on Fox “News” on which Brad Stine is not a maven. This week he dragged out to discuss bail being granted to a burglar in which his cohort was shot dead by the home owner. Which means that among all the other things on which he’s proved himself to be an authority, Stine must also be an expert on the Judicial System.Read more
As I previously posted, Jesse Ventura has demanded a retraction from Fox News of its reports cheerleading a Navy SEAL claiming to have punched Ventura for supposedly dissing the military. So how is Fox News handling the matter? If The Five yesterday (1/9/12) was any indication, by doubling down on their smears and depicting Ventura as wrong, crazy, unpatriotic and brain damaged – and not showing a shred of interest in any actual investigation or corroboration. So much for “we report, you decide.”Read more
It looks as though Jesse Ventura is not going to take the allegations of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle that he punched out Ventura – no pun intended - lying down. Not only has Ventura categorically denied ever having been punched by Kyle, Ventura has also demanded an apology and retraction from Fox News which, as I reported over the weekend, broadcast and cheered on Kyle without doing any apparent fact checking of his claim.

Glory Hallelujah! Last night, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow not only threw 316 yards to bring his team to glory over the Steelers, he also set a post-season record by averaging 31.6 yards per completion. According to God’s Messengers at FoxNews.com, and at Fox News Channel as heard by moi this morning on Fox and Friends and America’s Newsroom, it’s (probably) a miracle! Some people say it’s the hand of God Himself pointing us to the message of John 3:16! But wait! Are there other, more sinister numbers lurking in the shadows at Fox?Read more
There seems to be a Fox News meme here. Much as Fox loves to attack the Occupy movement and accuse Democrats of playing “class warfare,” at the same time, the network is trying to co-opt the populism and use class warfare against President Obama. You may recall Fox’s attack on President Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard vacation last summer. More recently, the network went after his Hawaiian vacation over Christmas and New Year’s. Yesterday, Fox News Sunday tried to equate Mitt Romney’s role as a venture capitalist/corporate raider to Obama’s role in the Solyndra bankruptcy But, in a twist that could have been engineered by (Fox News contributor) Karl Rove, Fox has taken that a step further by helping 1%-er Romney make Obama’s “elitism” a campaign issue.Read more
Posted on Fox News.com this morning and still a second tier lede. Seems that Tebow's 316 yards matches his favorite bible quote, John 3:16, about God giving the world his only son. OMG, that proves it. Tim Tebow is God's other son!
Seriously, do people actually believe this - uh - stuff?
