As more of the Fox News gusherama over Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan for vice president, “objective” host John Roberts and “objective” reporter Carl Cameron, helped promote the Romney campaign’s spin that Ryan would give the ticket an 11-point bounce in the polls. For closers, Cameron, compared Mitt Romney's gaffe in introducing Ryan as the "next president of the United States," and suggested it could be a sign "he's going to pull off the upset."Read more
Fox News has been gushing all day about Mitt Romney going along with their choice of choosing Paul Ryan as a Vice Presidential candidate. As part of the enthusiasm, host Bret Baier asked Fox contributor Stephen Moore – who just happened to be in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin – if Ryan would be a factor in the youth vote. You betcha! Why? Because he walks into meetings listening to Metallica and Led Zeppelin on his IPod! And he’s an avid bow hunter!Read more
Mitt Romney made a shocking slip today when he introduced his running mate, Paul Ryan, as "the next President of the United States." But not to fear, Fox fans, Fox's own Democratic "strategist" Joe Trippi was on hand to help assure everyone it was no big deal. Obama did the same thing, he told us, without noting that Obama immediately corrected himself, whereas it took Romney almost two minutes - after he had left the podium and Ryan had taken it - to do so. Nevertheless, Trippi told Fox's Bret Baier that Romney "handled it beautifully."Read more
Bill O’Reilly announced last night that a new Fox News poll showed President Obama with a 9-point lead over Mitt Romney. Bill O’Reilly, apparently stunned at the results, came up with an, uh, interesting explanation. It’s because so many Americans are on welfare.Read more
Although you can hardly turn on Fox News without hearing about how President Obama and the Democrats are engaging in “class warfare,” Bill O’Reilly apparently thinks the rules don’t apply when it’s a rich Democrat being pilloried. During his “news quiz” segment last night, O’Reilly crowed about a past segment “exposing” Senator John Edwards as a “snob” who lives in an “over-the-top $6 million house” across the street from a mobile home park, “where everyday folks live.”Read more
No sooner had Sarah Palin finished complaining to Sean Hannity about President Obama’s “disgusting attacks on people who he just happens to politically disagree with,” than she was back for Part 2 – and singing the praises of the unhinged, hate mongering Allen West, her first choice to be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential candidate.Read more
It's rather obvious that the owner of Chick fil-A, if not homophobic, has made some homophobic comments (or in Bill O'Reilly's euphemistic parlance, embraces "traditional marriage") and has connections to homophobic hate groups. But that doesn't mean that Chick fil-A workers should have to be bullied. And that's why it's obvious that the dude who bullied a Chick fil-A worker and then posted it on You Tube is, as Jon Stewart says, a "dick." But that didn't stop Steve Crowder from using this unfortunate incident, on Fox & Friends, to castigate Adam Smith who, in his interview with Glen Beck's website, "The Blaze," says that he and his family are being harassed by those same folks that Crowder says are so much nicer than Occupiers. But the whole Chick fil-A controversy has been used as a huge culture wedge issue which, in part, serves to reinforce the Christian right's fear and loathing of gays. So is that why Crowder identified Smith, twice, as "that gay man" when Smith said, on the infamous video, that he is not? Just saying...
Sean Hannity is still on his kick of trying to make an Obama campaign ad into Watergate. And who better to inform the “we report, you decide” network's viewers whether or not there was illegal collaboration between the Obama campaign and the pro-Obama SuperPAC that produced the ad than Sarah Palin? Rest assured that she didn’t let a little thing like not having a law degree or not having done any apparent research stop her from arriving at her guilty verdict and more.Read more
Apparently, the Church of England is not satisfied with News Corporation's efforts to resolve its ethical concerns - and it has gotten rid of its nearly $3 million worth of stock.
