Fox News War On Atheists Continues

The Christian right hate atheists. Given that Fox News is the mouthpiece for the Christian right, it's not surprising that Fox aids and abets this hatred. Perhaps in addition to his fear of gays and Muslims, Roger Ailes also hates atheists. As part of the Fox News persecuted Christian narrative, there is an ongoing attempt to vilify atheists as those who are responsible for these "outrageous" attacks on Christians, Christian crosses, and ski slope Jesus. Whenever any organization seeks to advocate for the separation of church and state, Fox takes the side of those who have no problem with blurring the lines. While Fox, particularly Fox & Friends, provides warm affirmation for signs and billboards proclaiming that Jesus saves and Jesus loves Christmas, they have utter contempt for atheists who put up signs and billboards that support an atheist perspective. In a recent spate of biased coverage about Vanderbilt University's non-discrimination policy, Fox framed it falsely as a way for atheists to take over Christian college clubs and for Fox's faith based audience, that's a scary thought. One of today's ledes on the Fox News website is a story about how the nasty Freedom from Religion Foundation has complained that an Alabama public high school's football team is violating the 1st Amendment because they pray in Jesus name. In the article, Fox's culture clubber Todd Starnes (Fox News radio) hit all the right Fox notes.

I might have to alter my predictions of Beck’s eventual demise after more radio stations abandon the Radio Drama Theatre and the NYT speculates about a post-Beck Fox “News” Channel.

Steve Doocy: The Way To Civil Discourse Is For Media Matters And Olbermann To Just Shut Up

By Aria

Remember when Roger Ailes claimed he told his on-air employees to tone it down? Apparently, they aren't listening. Or if they cross the line past what they can get away with on their TV shows, they take it to Fox News Radio. Take Steve Doocy's comment yesterday on Kilmeade and Friends. When asked if civil discourse among lawmakers was possible, Doocy completely changed the subject to promote stifling of Media Matters and "venomous" Keith Olbermann, saying that civil discourse is only possible if they're both shut down. Naturally, Kilmeade didn't feel the need to challenge this or tell Doocy that he had not even tried to answer the question... Instead, Kilmeade joined in the bashing.
