Fox & Friends Uses Gold Star Father To Attack CA Mayor

The Fox "friends" love veterans and love to feature stories about veterans - except for those that are about veterans being beaten up at "Occupy" protests! If there is any injustice - except for veterans being beaten up at "Occupy" protests - shown to American veterans, the red, white, and blue pals are there to expose the outrage. And according to Fox News, such an outrage took place in Richmond, California where the mayor was not doing her duty to honor veterans on Veterans Day. What made this even more of an egregious outrage was that according to the Fox News website and Fox Nation, this "California Mayor Snubs Veterans to Attend Occupy Rally." Spreading the word about this dastardly deed were the patriots on Fox & Friends who didn't really tell the whole story but all's fair in love, war, and character attacks on Fox & Friends who, in this patriotic segment, had a Gold Star dad as a human shield.

"Journalist" (?) Steven Crowder Freaks Out About "Scumbag" Occupiers

Steven Crowder's website's unattributed claim, that he is "FoxNews’ brightest, funniest young Conservative mind," is actually quite amusing in that the only accurate word is conservative. But it seems that he's all grown up and is now a "journalist." At least that's the term used by Fox & Friends' Dave Briggs when he hosted Crowder, on Sunday's Fox & Friends, for a rant about evil Occupiers who hassled Crowder when they disrupted a conservative conference. Crowder, last seen on Fox when he whined about Jon Stewart's left wing bias, was given an almost uninterrupted platform from which to communicate the newest Fox "News" meme about those lawless, violent, and dirty f*#king OWS protesters. Oh, the irony! And while Crowder might not be doing comedy anymore, he's still a pathetic joker.

Maltese Knight Peter Johnson Jr. Praises Catholic College Opposition To Birth Control Mandate

Fox News has less than six degrees of separation from the Catholic Church. Given that the Catholic Church has traditionally been on the side of the rich and powerful, it's not surprising that Rupert Murdoch was given a Papal Knighthood in return for a large donation to the LA diocese for a new cathedral. The News Corps board of directors includes the very conservative Catholic and former Spanish president Jose Maria Aznar. Murdoch's American capo, Roger Ailes, isn't a Catholic but he attends Mass with his Catholic third wife. Many of the Fox anchors are Catholic and the one clergyperson who appears regularly, on Fox News, is a right wing former member of the wealthy and scandal ridden "Legion of Christ," Fr. Jonathan Morris. And it's just not choice of personnel that suggests Catholic influence in Fox News. The content, in relation to social issues, dovetails nicely with the conservative teaching of American bishops who have put "social justice" on a back burner while throwing their huge political clout to banning abortion and gay marriage. It was no coincidence that Fox "opinion" was spun for defunding of Planned Parenthood. The US bishop syndicate is not happy about health care reform regulations that mandate that Catholic institutions provide free contraception (as well as other gynecological related services) for their employees - despite the fact that many of these women are not Catholic. Thus, it wasn't surprising to see Fox's Maltese Knight, Peter Johnson Jr, on this morning's Fox & Friends, (Ailes little morning fiefdom) unilaterally defend those whose "war on women" is escalating.

How Hannity "Corrected" Cain's Smear Against Harassment Accuser And Politico

Last week, we posted about the wildly incorrect accusation made on the Hannity show by Herman Cain spokesman Mark Block - that one of the women accusing Cain of sexual harassment was the mother of a Politico reporter. Fox News had said it would correct the claim on the air. Whether they did or not depends on what your definition of a "correction" is.
