Ann Coulter Thinks Herman Cain And Supporters Are “Much Better" Blacks Than President Obama And His Supporters

So two-time voter-fraud suspect Ann Coulter goes on Hannity, explains why she thinks “our blacks are better than their blacks” and then theorizes that President Obama is not as good at being black as Herman Cain. And how does Fox News react? Not with any disapprobation (though Red Eye’s Andy Levy did challenge her later, which I’ll post about later). Host Sean Hannity received every comment without challenge, if not with outright enthusiasm. FoxNews.com barely even noticed. The “fair and balanced” website described its video of the discussion, “Herman Cain Blame Game. Are the media treating the 2012 hopeful fairly?” The real question is, why is this woman given any kind of credibility, even on Fox News?

Bill O’Reilly Lectures Guests To Back Up Allegations, Then Takes Credit For Drop In Public Approval For Occupy Wall Street

I seriously think Bill O’Reilly has jumped the shark over the Occupy Wall Street protests. First, he spent the Talking Points segment that opened the show last night alleging (without any proof, I might add) that Occupy Wall Street is some kind of plot to “bring down the infrastructure of this country” and turn us into an “entitlement state.” Then, with his two liberal, female guests, O’Reilly turned insufferably condescending and hostile. He scolded Fox News contributor Leslie Marshall, “I want to remind you not to make statements you can’t back up on this network. We don’t do that on this network.” And then, moments later, he did exactly that by taking credit for a drop in the public approval of the protests.

Bill O’Reilly And Dick Morris Justify The Rich Getting Richer

Last night, Bill O’Reilly made an impassioned argument justifying the rich getting richer. His guest Dick Morris aided and abetted with the cockamamie argument that the poor are really getting richer, too.

The Five’s Eric Bolling Calls OWS Every Name In The Book, Then Defends Doug Schoen’s Phony Poll

Eric Bolling, Fox “News” Bully Boy and serial liar, took to the airwaves to smear the Occupy movement once again, although this time he eschewed wearing a tin foil hat. On yesterday’s show, and without pausing for breath, he called the OWS protesters, “Communist, Nazi, anti-Semites down here. Pot smoking, sex addicted morons, and you compare that to the Tea Party?” Clearly Kimberly Guilfoyle was amused because she laughed heartily at Bolling’s name-calling. However, Bob Beckel, who made the comparison, was not amused. He cried foul. Beckel has mentioned several times, on previous shows and in this segment, how he’s been forced to moderate his language when talking about Teabaggers because, as he has also explained, how angry it made his The Five co-hosts. They expressed their displeasure off the air and in commercial breaks. In fact, Beckel now calls them “The Tea People,” because of the severe browbeating he took. Yet, those same people feel that the Occupy movement can be described in almost sub-human terms and find it amusing.

Hannity And Guests Use Unscientific “Survey” To Attack Occupy Wall Street Protesters And Democrats

Just as Bill O’Reilly did a few days later, Sean Hannity cited a New York Magazine “survey” of 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters as some kind of scientific poll. New York Magazine never made the claim that the 100 interviews it conducted nor the results it tabulated into an article represented any kind of valid or accurate sampling. But Hannity and his “journalist” guests Jedediah Bila and Rich Lowry nevertheless seized upon the article as some kind of proof that the 99% movement are a bunch of America-hating fringers representative of the Democratic Party.
