During its incessant coverage of the removal of the word "God" from the Democratic National Committee platform, Fox News sometimes played "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. But, as Raw Story reports, the rock group was not amused. Their music publisher sent a cease and desist letter demanding that Fox stop using their song. Furthermore, Michael Stipe, the group's lead singer, had some choice words for Fox News and their brand of reporting.Read more
Bill O'Reilly Has No Problem With Limits On Women's Reproductive Rights - Cuz Women Still Have Reproductive Rights!
As News Hounds Ellen pointed out, Bill O'Reilly was doing his best cranky, old man imitation at last night's Democratic Convention. He was particularly incensed about the consistent defense of abortion rights because he couldn't wrap his overly inflated cranium around the Democratic narrative that our reproductive rights are being threatened. In supporting his claim that these rights are not under assault (AS IF), he made the factually correct statements that birth control is legal and "if you want any kind of birth control device, you can get it." But here's the thing. Thanks to O'Reilly and his pro-life pals, who just hate the idea that those slutty sluts are having wild sex for recreation and not procreation, you may be able to "get" birth control; but your access to it is being made more difficult. Let me splain it to Bill because I don't want him to be confused!Read more
Here we go again. Vice President Joe Biden is up right now. President Barack Obama is on deck. Share your thoughts and observations in our comments section.
Bill O’Reilly has been obsessing this week about whether or not Fox News personnel have been received hospitably at the Democratic National Convention. Not because he worries that Democrats have an incorrect view of Fox but because he’s going to be there today. In my book, that’s as good as admitting that Fox News is geared for Republicans.Read more
Last night, Sean Hannity interviewed NBC’s Tom Brokaw. Hannity was in deferential mode, as opposed to his bullyboy mode. At about 6:30 into the video, Hannity began complaining about liberal media bias. Brokaw began to disagree saying that Fox has “a bias to the right.” But Hannity interrupted to say, “I’m the only conservative – outspoken conservative here.”Read more
That Fox priest Fr. Jonathan Morris pals around with some heavy hitters in the radical, Republican right is underscored by his lecture, yesterday, for the Nevada chapter of the St. Thomas More Society where controversial, ultra-conservative Justice Antonin Scalia was the keynote speaker. The venue was the Palazzo which has connections to GOP money man Sheldon Adleson. (Scalia voted yes on Citizens United). I'm sure that Fr. Morris made some important contacts in "sin city" and whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas so it's all good!!!
Dick Morris – you know, the guy who said Hurricane Katrina would be a “huge positive” for George W. Bush – was on The O’Reilly Factor last night where he previewed Bill Clinton's convention speech by reiterating the crackpot conspiracy theory that Clinton is only fronting support for Barack Obama because Hillary is being “held hostage” as a member of Obama's cabinet.Read more
Coming up: Sandra Fluke and Bill Clinton. I'll bet Fox News has its knives and guns ready to attack the moment it's over. Share your thoughts, opinions and observations in our comments thread.
'Liberal' Van Susteren Glosses Over Michelle Obama's Convention Speech In Order To Harp On Party Platform
Although Michelle Obama rocked the Democratic Convention last night, Greta Van Susteren, whose show came on the air shortly afterward, almost completely ignored Obama's speech. Instead, Van Susteren focused on the removal of "God" and "Jerusalem" from the party platform.Read more
