Fox News Joins The Republican War On (Democratic) Voting

As Rolling Stone reported in an article called The GOP War on Voting, a number of Republican state governments – many in important swing states – have imposed new legal impediments to voting. America Live with Megyn Kelly held a discussion yesterday on the situation deliberately framed so as to suggest that the Obama campaign is stealthily working to undermine voter integrity and enable voter fraud. Guest and conservative talk show host Chris Plante not only grabbed that ball and ran with it, he began by openly accusing the Obama administration of voter fraud (unchallenged by Kelly) and later laughed heartily at every mention of voter disenfranchisement. UPDATED.

Huckabee Jokingly Urges Election Dirty Tricks

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, former presidential candidate and now Fox News host, made a shocking joke during a recent speech in which he exhorted voters to break the law in support of an Ohio referendum scaling back public workers’ collective bargaining rights. Really. UPDATED.

Fox News Helps Whitewash Coulter’s Latest Murder Fantasy: Killing The London Rioters

As we’ve previously noted, two-time voter fraud suspect Ann Coulter fantasizes a lot about murder. Somehow, neither her very questionable voting record nor the murder fantasies ever seem to be a problem for Fox News. Two days ago, the attention-hungry Coulter advocated in a column for “a few well-placed rifle rounds” to end the London rioting along with “a more sustained attack… (that) might save England from itself.” Have no fear she assured us, “There's no danger of killing off the next Winston Churchill or Edmund Burke in these crowds.” But no biggie. Coulter got a friendly platform on The O’Reilly Factor last night where she spewed some more of her hate-filled, racially-tinged invective - albeit with only a hint of violence - as O’Reilly sympathetically listened. There was no mention of her mass murder suggestion nor that pesky voting record. FoxNews.com similarly glossed over Coulter's comments by calling its video of the segment, Coulter: Liberal Policies Led to U.K. Riots. Video embed after the jump.

Fox News' Amnesia About Ann Coulter's Voter Fraud Inquiries Continues

I seriously doubt that Fox News will EVER care about the two voter-fraud investigations into Ann Coulter's very suspicious voting record - despite their obsessive hysteria with minorities others voting illegally. Still, I feel the need to create a record of this stupendous hypocrisy, especially in light of, as Brad Blog reports, the tsunami of new restrictions on the polling place now being rammed through by newly-elected Republican majorities in state after state. Can there be any doubt that Fox will support each and every such effort?

Fox News Tweet Du Jour: The Bolling ACORN Doesn’t Fall Far From The Fox News Tree

Remember ACORN? Sadly, the advocate group for poor and disadvantaged ‘Merkins was utterly destroyed by the deceptively edited ‘Pimp & Ho’ videos created by James O’Keefe and disseminated by Andrew Breitbart. Once Fox News started running the videos, it was all over. Lawmakers quickly defunded the group, based on no more evidence than these bogus videos. This forced ACORN to declare bankruptcy in November of last year. Yet, investigation after investigation has exonerated ACORN and pointed the finger at James “Pimp” O’Keefe. In fact, just this week the Government Accounting Office weighed in after an extensive investigation. According to ConsumerAffairs.com, “GAO Finds Little to Support Congress' Abolition of ACORN.” You’d think that based on all the investigations concluding ACORN engaged in no wrong-doing that Fox News would stop denigrating the organization. However, you’d be wrong.
