Fox Nation Promotes Operation Rescue Propaganda
Operation Rescue is a radical anti-choice organization which has engaged in "aggressive tactics to disrupt and blockade" clinics that provide abortion. In the 80's they directed violent fury against Dr. George Tiller's Kansas City clinic and we all know how that ended. While they have moderated their tactics, they are part of the mainly GOP war on women's reproductive choice which is now heavily invested in destroying Planned Parenthood. Their newest guerilla tactic involves obtaining 911 calls from Planned Parenthood which purport to show malfeasance on the part of this organization that they so loathe. That Fox News is their media mouthpiece is shown by Fox Nation's sourcing of an Operation Rescue article which, like much of what is promoted on Fox News, is a classic example of the propaganda being used to destroy and deny reproductive choice inAmerica.Read more
New Hampshire Primary Open Thread
Anybody watching the primary results? Here's a place to post your thoughts, observations, opinions, etc., especially regarding the media coverage. I'll be watching Fox News, of course. What are you watching?
Fox Nation Deliberately Race Baits Michelle Obama
In yet another mockery of its own stated purpose of civility and tolerance, Fox Nation (edited by O’Reilly Factor ambush producer, Jesse Watters) distorted comments from First Lady Michelle Obama in order to suggest she’s a black racist who's upset that whites have too much power in Illinois. Sadly, the hate-mongering community of readers there pounced on the race bait Watters deliberately fed them.Read more
Fox News Cheerleads Todd Palin Endorsement Of Newt Gingrich
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
Fox Nation Hate Mongers In Article About "Obama Regime"
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
Gretchen Carlson Pimps Fox Meme Of "War On Christians"
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
Steve Doocy Advances Meme That Occupy Supporting Students Indoctrinated - Oh, The Irony!
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
Brad Stine Gets A Haircut And It Doesn’t Help
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
Fox’s The Five Sneer At Ventura’s Denial Of Navy SEAL Punch Story
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
Jesse Ventura Demands Apology And Retraction From Fox News Over Navy SEAL Punch Allegation
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.
