Bill Maher The Latest Target Of Fox Nation Death Threats

As our Priscilla noted, "civil," "tolerant" Fox Nation has taken to calling Bill Maher "Pig Maher." That's the Fox Nation editor doing it, not the readers. So it's probably no surprise that the readers should react the way they have on one of the recent threads. We will turn these over to Maher.

Why Is Aunty Em Apologizing To Steve Doocy?

Twitter has several problems. One of them is the 140 character limit. If I could keep my thoughts to 140 characters, I never would have become a professional writer. Another problem with Twitter is that when one starts to follow people (okay, these are problems I have with Twitter), it becomes so easy to snipe at them. Those two problems merged yesterday morning and the end result is an unreserved apology to my newest Twitter friend, Foxy Friend Steve Doocy. Maybe I should start at the beginning and, as with many other apologies, it all began with a non-thinking tweet:

Hannity Disses Michael Jackson Trial Fans As “Losers”

Sean Hannity is not just disinterested in the manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s physician. He wants you to know that those who care a lot about it are “losers.” After sneering at what he obviously considered excessive media coverage, Hannity added contemptuously, “Where do people have time to go home at night, make posters… and then stand outside the courtroom all day? …They’re losers.” Of course, the Murray trial is nothing like when Hannity spent every night outside Terri Schiavo’s hospice with a bunch of people who had nothing better to do than hang around with him – with signs.

As The Murdoch Turns: The Week’s Newest News Corp. News

NEW NEWS HACKING NEWS: As News Hounds has been reporting, the Murdoch Empire is still in deep doo doo as revelations in the phone hacking scandal continue to roil both sides of the ocean. Now comes word that News Corp. investors are demanding the removal/firing/dismissal/sacking/ouster/elimination/giving the boot to Chief Operating Officer James Murdoch, son of Rupert and third in line at the beleaguered media conglomeration. According to The Guardian a shareholders’ group has delivered a letter to the Board of Directors which reads, in part, “We question James Murdoch's suitability as a senior executive and potential successor to Rupert Murdoch. As a senior executive at News International it is unclear why he did not initiate in-depth inquiries at an earlier stage and why former colleagues now directly and publicly contradict his stated position that he was unaware that hacking extended beyond [Clive] Goodman [the News of the World's former royal editor].” And, it won’t get any better for the board or shareholders: Parliament plans to recall James and Rupert Murdoch for further questioning, but this time plans to place them both under oath.
