It may be Labor Day weekend but since Fox News hates all things labor, there's no reason to take a holiday from pointing out the ongoing outrageousness on the "fair and balanced" news network. Click through to find eight new reasons why Fox is neither fair nor balanced.
And the nominees are...
Chris Wallace, looking ahead to the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington: “(A)t what point have we gone as far as the country, as the government needs to go in putting a thumb on the scale if you will?”
Clayton Morris, asking whether a “recent string of violence is an indication that we need to bring God back into the home.”
Birther Donald Trump, supposedly giving credence to his accusation that the New York State attorney General colluded with President Obama to sue Trump University for fraud as a political vendetta: “I’m not a very paranoid person.”
Mark Fuhrman, explaining how he “knew” the attack on an 88 year-old white man was race-based: “These two teens picked him, not only because he was old but because he was white. There was no chance that he was related to anybody in their community at all that they knew. I mean, race is a factor.”
Ann Coulter, playing a national security expert on TV: “Democrats, generally they intervene when it is directly contrary to the interests of the United States. They seem to think it’s selfish to do something that will help the United States such as invade Iraq, take out a dictator and preside over several democratic elections.”
Herman Cain, "explaining" why Senator Tim Scott was not invited to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington even though Scott was invited and turned down the invitation: “Because he is a conservative Republican, pure and simple. …I know Senator Scott and I know that he would have moved heaven and earth in order to be there if he were invited.”
Donald Rumsfeld lecturing President Obama about truth and integrity regarding military action against Syria: “(T)ake a deep breath, get down to ground truth and say to himself that the United States does have a role to play but it has to be played in a steady, solid way.”
Katie Pavlich misrepresented African American concerns about voter suppression - and deliberately insulted them at the same time: “I waited a really long time to vote last time and I didn’t complain about voter suppression.”
Please vote below for THE most outrageous from the selection above. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes, dear readers, because the choice is now up to you.
PS I apologize for not getting to the poll last week but I was working on my Salon.com article.
I will go with the new guy Clayton. He seems to be channeling Gomer the Huckster or Father Spanky.
Ann Coulter’s statement was certainly the most hilarious.
Katie Pavlich’s statement was by far the dumbest.
But my vote went to Clayton Morris for his assertion that a recent string of violence is due to a lack of God in the home. Not sure if he ever really read the Bible, since there’s no shortage of disgusting violence in that thing. Of course, it’s all God-sanctioned and “Christian” violence, so that’s different, right?
