Ranker put together a list of the top ten Fox News fails of 2011. We covered most, if not all of them: Fox News mistaking Tina Fey for Sarah Palin; Bill O'Reilly's claim that the oceans' tides are "proof" that God exists; and a study showing how shockingly uninformed Fox News viewers are (our link is not working at the moment). Even so, it's a fun walk down not-so-happy memory lane. Have a good laugh at Fox's expense here.
Maybe they’re just tired of yelling at each other, but the introduction of Donald Trump as a phone-in guest on The Five is just another example of a show devoid of original ideas. Two reasons: Trump’s all over the network already and phone interviews work really well on radio, but tee vee? Not so much, so why devote two whole segments to bad tee vee? The Five predictably sucked up to The Donald—even Bob Beckel—and the love affair was mutual; Trump’s opening bid was, “I have to admit it, you have a great show.” It was after all the hugs and kisses when The Five allowed Trump to go full-bore Birther.

The Fox News online community reacted to an article about the shooting death of rapper Slim Dunkin with a slew of racial vitriol. “Encouraging news” and “one less n***** trash” were some of the comments that were posted and liked. Another reader said he wants to round up all “African’s” and put them in cages. 6 readers liked that comment. Screen grabs after the jump. (H/T Chris B.)Read more
Tonight was Ann Coulter’s turn to attack Newt Gingrich on The O’Reilly Factor. This time, the focus was on Gingrich’s radical plan to rein in what he called a “grotesquely dictatorial” judiciary. Like Glenn Beck the night before (pre debate), Coulter didn’t mince words in her criticism of Gingrich. She said, “He makes these wild overstatements… but he doesn’t make the right point, he makes a point that is not correct, he’s bombastic, he opens conservatives to ridicule… and he hurts a good cause.”Read more
If you're not a fan of Newt Gingrich, you’re sure to enjoy this heated debate on The O'Reilly Factor last night between Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck in which Beck said Gingrich “would be an awful president." O'Reilly tried to defend Gingrich but it fell flat with Beck. Video after the jump.

Not only are atheists in the Praetorian Guard of the mythical "war on Christmas," but they fight a constant battle against all that is good and holy in this Tim Tebow nation. Along with secularists and those religious "fringe groups" so feared by Gretchen Carlson, those evil atheists are plunging good Christian Merka into a maelstrom of satanic political correctness which is loathed by Gretchen Carlson. As such, the Fox News war machine never wastes an opportunity to turn its sights to those nasty atheists especially those who are ruining Christmas.Read more
Back in November, Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller were chatting about Hank Williams' apology for comparing President Obama to a Nazi. Bill, no stranger to Nazi references, said "it's always bad to use Nazis in analogies; you don't do it." Recently, teabagging fave, GOP Rep. Allen West said that “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine." (And if ya wanna talk propaganda, can we talk about Fox "News?") But what say you Bill O'Reilly?
In Post-Debate Interview, Hannity Tries To Spin Romney’s $10,000 Bet: “How Many Times I Have Done That”
Sean Hannity went to Iowa for a special “spin room” show that followed Fox News’ Republican presidential candidates’ debate there last night. But apparently, Hannity figured that the candidates had gotten enough tough questions for the evening. “I will not ask you about Romney care,” he assured Mitt Romney during their turn together. Hannity went on to help spin Romney’s $10,000 bet moment from the previous debate by expressing surprise that it got so much attention because he, too, makes bets like that often.Read more
