Bill Maher's Real Time

Hannity Pretends Christine O’Donnell Never Said She Dabbled In Witchcraft

Sean Hannity may have broken the record for most disingenuousness and hypocrisy in one Fox News segment last night (9/20/10). It started with Hannity whining about those meanie Democrats “orchestrating a smear campaign” against Christine O’Donnell. As if Hannity ever does anything but smear anyone he considers a political opponent. But then Hannity added dishonesty to disingenuousness by saying that Bill Maher “led the charge” for Democrats by “trying to suggest that she (O’Donnell) dabbled in witchcraft as a high schooler.” In fact, as Hannity must surely know, Maher did not suggest anything. O’Donnell said it herself, plain as day, that she had dabbled in witchcraft.

O’Reilly Snaps on Maher’s “Stupid Country” Comment . . . But Wait, What’s That Dennis Miller Said?

Guest blogged by Julie

On Thursday night’s O’Reilly Factor/Talking Points Memo (7/30/09), Bill O’Reilly blazed out of the gate with this thunderous query: “Why is the far left saying America’s a dumb country?” With video.

Fox Nation Resident Wants Bill Maher To Die

Bill Maher, in responding to CNN's Wolf Blitzer's question about whether Sarah Palin has a future as a presidential candidate, said that "he wouldn't put anything past this stupid country." Not suprisingly, the website that promotes "mutual respect" has the video as one of today's ledes. Not surprisingly, the "nation" is all upset and wants Maher (a comedian) to, with regard to America, love it or leave it. It's ironic, the Fox Nation consider themselves uber patriots and defenders of the Constitution - yet they really have a problem with the First Amendment - except when it comes to their pathetic and idiotic rants at teabagging events where they call the President a Nazi and other fun stuff. And more irony in that they consider themselves uber Christians - better than the rest of us evil, secular libruls - yet, a homicidal resident (with anger issues) of the "nation" (and it's so not Colbert's) wants Bill Maher to die. I thought that there were moderators at Fox Nation. Stay classy Fox Nation - way to promote "mutual respect." And keep up the good work, mods! Fox Nation, by its very existence, proves Bill Maher is absolutely correct!

Fox Nation Says Yes To Biased Media

Fox Nation’s red, white, and blue advertisement says that “it’s time to say no to biased media.” Are the headline writers oblivious to this imperative or do they just not, in the interests of partisan propaganda, give a crap? I ask the question because today’s top lede makes this – ah – biased comment: “Repulsive Bill Maher Panel Slanders Reagan.” Isn’t the inclusion of a subjective modifier, before Maher’s panel's name, a teensy bit – ah – biased? (Are they referring to Maher or his panel or both as "repulsive?") But ya gotta love Fox Nation priorities. We have economic problems, conflict in the Middle East, and all sorts of other issues worth noting; but Fox Nation is concerned about what “the repulsive Bill Maher Panel" (Maher is a comedian) says. However, it does provide the Fox Nation with yet another opportunity to engage in yet more less than lucid primal screams about those evil liberals. And this story is a “twofer” because, as the photo shows, Maher was talking to an African American. Beyond inciting more hatred, this big, lede story is silly and yet another example of Fox Nation "biased media."

FOX News Guest Wishes Sean Penn Could Be Tried For Treason

Another night on FOX News, another attack on Americans masquerading as patriotism. On last night's (1/27/09) O'Reilly Factor, guest Andrea Peyser complained that since we're not actually at war with Venezuela, Sean Penn can't be charged with treason for “breaking bread” with Hugo Chavez. Bill O'Reilly, who earlier in show had instructed viewers to “just walk away” from anyone who does not respect opposing points of view, didn't bat an eyelash. With video.
