Telling. Fox News asks of NBC’s Sandy telethon: “How is NBC going to control what people say?”

Tweet

Fox News is aghast that NBC will be broadcasting a benefit concert for the victims of Sandy. Why would that be? Because NBC is the pawn of Obama and all the acts (Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Aguilera, Sting, Joel) are flaming liberals. That’s why. Plus…

”Where are the conservative performers?”

Fox News contributor: “One of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote.”

Tweet

Nothing for me to add. Digby says it all: “I like it when conservatives say what they really believe.”

Oh look, this dickhead just happens to be a pastor. Fancy that.

“We should’ve never turned this over to women. And these women are voting in the wrong people. They’re voting in people who are . . . → Read More: Fox News contributor: “One of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote.”

Sun News Network and the emasculation of the North American right wing

Tweet

I haven’t had that much exposure to Fox News North but from what I’ve seen there’s obviously something fishy happening at that network which is symptomatic of a bigger issue with the North American right-wing male of the species. Listening to Brian Lilley’s chipmunk voice or recoiling from Mark Bonokoski’s lispy spittle . . . → Read More: Sun News Network and the emasculation of the North American right wing

More Onion than the Onion. Fox News reports on black hip hop birthday for Obama.

Tweet

It’s been amusing, if not a little sad, to see the right wing trying to outdo each other criticizing Obama for having a birthday party. They’re all pissed but none more so than Fox News. There were  African American people at the party! And no jobs were created. Can you hear the dog whistle? . . . → Read More: More Onion than the Onion.

Fox News drops Glenn Beck

Tweet

Glenn Beck’s website tones down the implications but Glenn Beck is ‘transitioning‘ from Fox News and will disappear from the network later this year. In effect, he’s been fired. Because of his rabid fans, Fox News has agreed to let him fade away instead of outright cutting the cord. His lack of . . . → Read More: Fox News drops Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck Too Psycho For Fox News?

Tweet

Sure looks that way. Rumour has it that his contract won’t be renewed when it ends come this December.

Carr believes Beck’s falling ratings might do him in. It seems Beck has lost more than 1 million viewers in the last six months, ever since he crested with his “Restoring Honor Rally” . . . → Read More: Glenn Beck Too Psycho For Fox News?

Can you find Egypt on this map?

Neither can Fox News.

UPDATE: The graphic originated two years ago. Media Matters was on the case in 2009. However, the graphic appears to be authentic.

There’s a term for what Fox News and wingnut radio do. It’s called ‘Stochastic terrorism’

Tweet

The outrage from some of the media and the progosphere in particular over dog whistle tactics used by the conservative media to spread hate and encourage violence against progressives, especially Democratic politicians, has been drowned out by the whines of innocence from the very wingers who perpetrate it. But now the media . . . → Read More: There’s a term for what Fox News and wingnut radio do. It’s called ‘Stochastic terrorism’

CK’s Predictions For 2011 – Good, Bad and The Ugly

Tweet

Some will be predictable. Some, many will chide me for being pessimistic; I call it realism, but anyway…  These are my predictions. If any of my co-bloggers and contributors have any predictions, they’re strongly encouraged to do their own posts about them. It would be interesting indeed. Anyhow, on with the festivities . . . → Read More: CK’s Predictions For 2011 – Good, Bad and The Ugly

What a serious journalist looks like

Tweet

Bill O’Reilly may be the heart of Fox News and Glenn Beck may be its soul but here’s the face (and body) of the daytime serious news part of Fox News.

Yowza!

I always knew Fox News viewers were a bunch of wankers but . . . → Read More: What a serious journalist looks like

“The Atomic Cafe” – We have met the enemy and he is us

Tweet

“In times of social crisis and tension, in times when changes come so thick and fast that the individual can no longer place himself in his group, when he knows something is wrong but doesn’t know what, when he feels himself a pawn, in times like these, most men become highly suggestible, . . . → Read More: “The Atomic Cafe” – We have met the enemy and he is us

Wishful thinking? Fox News calls Obama ‘former president’

Tweet

It doesn’t get more blatant than this. For a network caught many times manipulating images of liberals and placing the word ‘Democrat’ or ‘D‘ under pictures of Republicans caught doing bad things, this is a new low. The network just can’t help itself. It really is that evil.

Take that Ezra, Beck and Fox News: Soros gives cool million to Media Matters UPDATED

Tweet

Now all those gasbags on the right have reason to legitimately tie Soros to Media Matters. It’s actually a reality now. Soros is a donor to Media Matters. A big donor.

Media Matters has done a credible job so far of keeping the feet of the homophobic, racist, criminals of the right’s to the fire. . . . → Read More: Take that Ezra, Beck and Fox News: Soros gives cool million to Media Matters UPDATED

Television media coverage of liberal events no longer exists

Tweet

Today, two major events occurred in two separate countries with the same media reaction – indifference. In the States, the One Nation rally drew twice as many attendees as Glenn Beck’s rally a few weeks before it. The difference? The smaller crowd at Beck’s rally was much ballyhooed in the media, receiving . . . → Read More: Television media coverage of liberal events no longer exists

Should Have Known Kory Teneycke Could Do More Damage After Leaving the CBC–(Update)

Tweet

Oh yes! As we all heard, Kory Teneycke ended his rather short tenure at the CBC in favour of  taking over as Vice-President of Development at Quebecor.  And already, he seems to be working fairly quickly.

The former chief spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper is spearheading a bid by Quebecor Inc. . . . → Read More: Should Have Known Kory Teneycke Could Do More Damage After Leaving the CBC–(Update)
