In addition to Fox News hosts proclaiming that the "war on women" is a liberal myth and that - true story - women are insulted about all that talk about lady parts, several GOP women have appeared on Fox to push the same meme. These Republican women claim that what women really care about is the economy and who cares about lady parts. The woman in the attached video is supporting Romney for the reasons given above. But I don't think she will be appearing on Fox News.

Fox & Friends got a twofer earlier this week when it showcased a threatened lawsuit by Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley against the U.S. Military. Dooley is not only a virulent Islamophobe but he apparently hates President Obama. So when Dooley’s representative told guest host Peter Johnson, Jr. that the Pentagon has capitulated to jihadists, Johnson was all ears and no challenge.Read more
In a new article in Mother Jones, writers David Corn and Stephanie Mencimer caught Mitt Romney singing the praises of Glenn Beck at a May 2009 fundraiser for a dubious, unaccredited college that seemed more intent on promoting extremist views than academic excellence. The entire article is quite eye-opening about how the recently-moderate Romney pandered to the far right. But most relevant to us as News Hounds are Romney’s comments about Beck.

Neil Cavuto presented Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett yesterday as a “fine Governor” whose great job in Pennsylvania just could be the reason Romney’s poll numbers have improved in that state. This just one week after Cavuto credited Florida Governor Rick Scott’s good job as a possible reason Obama was ahead in that state.Read more
On Monday’s Special Report (10/8/12), Brit Hume thought the President was lying about Romney’s tax plan. But Hume wound up misrepresenting the effects of the Bush tax cuts.Read more

In addition to the usual character assassinations and promotion of the GOP/right wing agenda, Bill O'Reilly's trademark bloviation has taken on a "Dr. Phil" aspect in that Bill is now giving his "folks" advice on how to be a better and nicer person. Last night he recommended giving compliments, "rare in this selfish world," to people because it makes them feel good. He advised that if they make a good point "say, hey, that's a good point." Recently, as discussed by Ann Coulter on Megyn Kelly's Fox News program, and reported on the Fox News website and Fox Nation, African-American actress, Stacey Dash received death threats after she tweeted her support for Mitt Romney. She is being defended by Sandra Fluke who tweets that the "racist attacks" are unacceptable. She makes a good point. Let's see if Bill practices what he preaches by giving her a compliment. I'm not holding my breath!Read more
