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.
If Sandra Fluke were a conservative, I can just imagine the 24/7 hissy fit on Fox News about liberals’ attack on free speech were they to make the same remarks about her that conservatives have. But since she had the nerve to speak out on behalf of Obama’s health insurance mandate for contraception – and Rush Limbaugh verbally raped her – Fluke is firmly on the Fox News enemies list. Enter Ann Coulter - with a black brastrap sticking out from the white straps of her low-cut dress - on Hannity last night.Read more
Looks like Bill O'Reilly needs to lawyer up again. Both he and Greta Van Susteren face a lawsuit from the owner of the NY based "Drum Cafe," Aviva Nash, for what she feels is their portrayal of her as a con artist who steals from taxpayers. Her allegations of defamation of character and emotional distress are based on segments, done by the aforementioned hosts, during which they bashed the GSA for ceremony expenses which included drumsticks provided by Nash's company. While neither host mentioned Nash by name, they showed conference footage of Ms. Nash and her group. *O'Reilly's news correspondent for the piece, Juliette Huddy (also a defendant), described her as "hippy dippy" and after showing the same footage, Van Susteren said that the drum exercise was "insane" and that the expenses of the conference amount to stealing. As such, Ms. Nash claims that Van Susteren suggested that Nash was running a con. She also alleges that she has lost business as a result of Fox's exposure. And so it goes...Read more
