Fox’s Jonathan Hoenig: Unions Have Crushed Every Industry

By Brian

On Saturday's Cashin’ In (11/12/11), the topic was Apple training their workers on how to deal with unions. Host Cheryl Casone asked liberal Sally Kohn, "Working at Apple, I mean, is your physical safety threatened? I mean, is that really the right place for a union to be?"

Fox Pundit To Rural America: If Privatized Postal Service Doesn’t Work For You, You Can Always Move!

By Brian and Ellen

If ever a Fox News segment proved how elitist those “we like America” Fox Newsies are, it was this segment from Forbes on Fox on Saturday, October 22, 2011. Host David Asman purported to frame it as a discussion about the Postal Service’s financial problems, especially with regard to the unions. But that was really a thinly-disguised excuse to talk up privatization. Asman slyly maneuvered the conversation that way by going immediately after his introduction to panelist Dennis Kneale with the enthusiastic “question:” "Dennis, you say, ‘Shut down the whole post office before taxpayers get stuck with another bailout!'”

Glenn Beck Back On Fox News To Demonize, Fear Monger And Hate Monger About Occupy Wall Street Protesters

Glenn Beck visited The O’Reilly Factor last night and it was just like old times. Apocalyptic? Check. Hate mongering? Check. Incendiary rhetoric? Check. Tied to President Obama without any real facts? Check. Van Jones smear? Check. The only things missing were his crocodile tears and the chalkboard. But it was easy to get the picture anyway as he foamed at the mouth about how the Occupy Wall Street Protesters were poised to unleash some world calamity. O’Reilly seemed skeptical about some of it but he didn’t offer any serious challenge and even egged on Beck at points.

Bob Beckel Literally Owes His Life To Roger Ailes and Eric Bolling

From the Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction Department: On yesterday’s edition of The Five—the Fox “News” equivalent of a uncomfortable family dinner each and every weekday—wacky-but-loveably-sexist cousin Greg Gutfeld interrupted the proceedings to demand that crazy-but-no-longer-addicted Uncle Bob Beckel tell the anecdote of what happened earlier in the day. Short version: At lunch, with the extended [corporate] family, Uncle Bob appears to have choked on a [jumbo?] shrimp. Beckel was the first to admit that had not Eric Bolling and Roger Ailes been there to Heimlich him [he’s big enough that it might actually take two people] the headlines today might have been very different. No. Really:
