Fox News Isn’t News But MSNBC, CNN and All the Other Networks Are?

Bookmark and Share   According to White House “Special Advisor to the President”, David Axelrod, Fox News is not a news network.

FoxDuring a tour on the Sunday morning television circuit, the guru behind President Obama’s election effort told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos “It’s really not news — it’s pushing a point of view. And the bigger thing is that other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way, and we’re not going to treat them that way. We’re going to appear on their shows. We’re going to participate but understanding that they represent a point of view.”

In recent weeks, some honest assessments by FOX News have prompted the White House to call a war of sorts on Fox. They refused to allow the President to appear on the network a few weeks back when he went on every network including the Spanish station Univision, to make a desperate pitch for healthcare and since then several hosts on different Fox programs have not even received responses to repeated invitations for interviews.

Clearly, the President does not like Fox. His own Chief of Staff and henchman Rahm Emanuel said on CNN’s State ofaxelrod The Union that Fox “is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.”

What I find funny is not the White House’s dislike for Fox News. It is the reason why they dislike Fox and how since Rupert Murdoch’s premier news and opinion gathering outlet doesn’t simply rollover and kiss their collective arses, to a liberal, that is crazy rightwing radicalism.  Give    me    a    break.    Liberals of every color and stripe hate the station.   They all like to sit in the kitchen but they can’t take the heat. They can give criticism but they can’t take it.  For decades, the lamestream media has been dominated by a liberal bias.  That is acceptable to them but Fox News isn’t.

Try to be honest folks.  At least for just a minute.   I mean I can, so why can’t you?  I can admit that radio talk shows are dominated by conservative hosts.  From Limbaugh to Levine, Ingrahm to  Hannity, conservatives dominate the radio dial. There.  I admit it.   I have to, because there is no denying it.  I mean, beween the proliferation and popularity of consevative ralk radio and the dreary ratings and ongoing failures of  attempts to air liberal radio talkshow programs makes it quite obvious that there is a big market out there seeking the conservative perspective.  On the flip side, Air America has a an audience so small, that string and cups are all that is  needed to reach them.   These are the facts and I am honest about them and I do not deny them. 

For sure, Fox News does not glaze over facts such as that of President Obama’s approval numbers trending downward or that the more he pushed for his government run health management and care reforms, the quicker those ratings of his dropped. You can bet your butt that when the President goes abroad and calls America names, someone on Fox is going to point it out.

SOMEONE HAS TO!     

Because there is absolutely no journalistic integrity left in the business of news these days and no other network will bring it up.  The field of news is dominated by partisan liberal ideologues who use every gigabyte of the internet, every electronic transmission and every ounce of ink, to defend the President for anything that he does while at the same time, that which is indefensible, is simply ignored. 

These are facts folks. Those of you liberal lunatics who believe that two plus two equals three and that because it does not equal four, it can be considered a tax cut, need to get out of the parallel universe you float around.   Those of you liberal losers who are cursing me out at this very moment, yeah, I mean you, the Davids, the Scotts and Sammys or Sarahs, Sallys and Susies out there.  All of you who like to use Fox News as some kind of tool to fuel your hatred and blame others who disagree with you, of being brainwashed by Fox News, need to wake up.  Just because someone does not agree with your kumbaya, head up your hinnies, holier than thou mentality, doesn’t mean they are brainwashed or that Fox News is doing any brainwashing.  Do you really think that Fox is the only 24 hour news outlet that also carries commentators who state their opinions?    HAVE YOU PAID ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WATCH?

matthews-obamaYou numbskulls really think that Fox is not a news outlet  because they also hav commentators that present their opinions?  Us that what even your leading numbskulls are actually going on national news to discuss?   You guys actually have the nerve to single out Fox News as being biased and condemn the station for that?

For What? …………For doing the EXACT same thing that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC do?

I have long held the belief that Democrats are hypocrites and that their  liberal ideology is hypocrisy based. That hypocrisy is usually demonstrated every time you open your dumb mouths. That is one reason why I encourage your comments and angry tirades. Through them, you prove me right all the time. But in the case of your infatuation with Fox News, your insanely unhealthy  infatuation with that network, and only them, makes  it evident to everyone other than yourselves that you are hypocrites

You actually have the nerve, gall and audacity to be disgusted with Fox News for not overlooking the flaws and foibles of liberals and then you call them a station promoting a conservative agenda while saying  nothing about literally every other existing network, media outlet and group of reporters and commentators on your favorite programs.

Please tell me where and when any of the following lamestream media liberals do not promote a pro-leftwing “perspective”;

  • Larry King, Wolf Blitzer, Katie Couric, Matt Lower, Meredith Vieira, Contessa Brewer, Campbel Brown, Ann  Curry, Katie Couric, Nora O’Donnell, John King, Kiran Chetry, Miles Obrien, Anderson Cooper, Candy Crowley, Mika Brezinski, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann.

And that’s to name just a few.

But go ahead, please tell me where these people deliver an unbiased news report.

You wanna claim that Fox is biased?   Who was Dan Rather working for when he failed to verify the validity of falsified documents that allowed him to falsely tell the nation that President Bush went AWOL and deserted his command in the Air National Guard?

Good Lord, you people are hypocrites. Your are shameless buffoons who live by double standards and survive on hypocrisy. You claimed it was patriotic to protest President Bush but now claim it is unpatriotic to disagree with President Obama. You are highly offended by fringe elements who depict President Obama as Hitler but you made copies of images that made George Bush look like Hitler and proceeded to laugh yourselves to tears.

You are hypocrites. Face it. You are lying hypocrites. So put those fingers down and stop pointing them at Fox News. Starti pointing them at the endless array of journalistic prostitutes that you TiVo and talk about around the office water cooler or, in your case, the unemployment line.

But before you get ready to shoot off one of your hypocrisy proving comments, I want to let you in on a big secret. Fox News is not liberal. Can you believe it?……… They are the only station that does not run with strictly liberal reporters, commentators and guests.   While Rachel Maddow shows clips of tribute to Nancy Pelosi and then cozies up to her for a softball interview,  Neil Cavuto will interview a Barney Frank and then turn to a Newt Gingrich for a counterpoint. Hmmm, maybe that is what is fair and balanced, while shows like Countdown to Nothing with Keith Olbermann or Softball with the Screwball Chris Matthews are unstable and biased.

Here’s another secret. While you are crying about what you believe is the overwhelmingly biased coverage of one, “one”station, that you think is conservative, all those other so called news outfits that you like and listen to, well their ratings consistently come in well under those of Fox. So while you may hate Fox, believe it or not, a lot more people like Fox than they do your favorite liberal network.

Oh, and one other thing. I am a conservative and I can tell you this, Fox News may not be a liberal based outfit, but they are not conservative . If you were to compare Fox to any partisan politician, you would have to label them as a Rhino.  And I do not like Rhino’s very much.

World’s First Political Entertainment Network Premeirs This Fall

Bookmark and Share   Few have probably heard of Zolitics.com but if you are political insider or junkie like me, pretty soon it will become a tab in your favorites tool bar.

zolitics_logoIn a unique demonstration of political bipartisanship renowned Republican consultant John Brabender, former McCain advisor Leslie Gromis-Baker, Democrat strategist Tad Devine and ex-Bush White House confidant Sara Taylor have joined forces to create a cyber network that is completely devoted to politics….the humorous side of it.

According to Tad Devine in an interview in Politics Magazine, “being a political consultant, you have a lot of time in the off years, when you’re not working 24 hours a day”. According to him, Zolitics.com was a “good way to spend a chunk of time and show people the mechanics of elections.”   And so a few consultants with time on their hands have begun Zolitics.com, the first “Political Entertainment Network”.  Among other things, Zolitics.com will feature a number of ongoing webisodes that so far include such series aszoliticsmovingnumbersMoving Numbers” which is a ongoing 12 part saga of a dysfunctional U.S. Senate campaign in Pennsylvania.

Moving Numbers gives a hilarious glimpse at the real world, behind the scenes challenges and traumas that confront high profile campaigns for elected office. This series will include some real life politicians and political operatives including Democrat strategist Bob Shrum and pollster Frank Luntz.

If you like reality television Zolitics has “Scoops”, which features political reporters and the real story behind the smiling faces that deliver us the news after dealing with the often messy and chaotic conditions that go into the coverage of politics and political campaigns. Scoops features amateur journalists who compete for the delivering of real news stories.

zoliticsmyamericaOther series aired only on Zolitics include “My America”. This compilation puts accomplished and devout liberals and conservatives together on cross country road trips as each of these political polar opposites introduce each other to their conservative and liberal lifestyles that they live.

The first episode of My America will star former Pennsylvania conservative senator Rick Santorum who is a contributor to FOX News and former Al Gore Campaign Manager, Clinton administration official and Democrat strategist Donna Brazille, a CNN contributor.

The fourth ongoing Zolitics.com series is “Look Who’s Coming To Dinnerzoliticsdinner

This program is co-produced with Politics Magazine and it takes viewers to the trendy, upscale restaurants that the political establishment and its players haunt.

The show allows the audience to eavesdrop in on the dinner conversations of many of our nations political power players as they dine in some D.C.’s finest restaurants and political meeting spots.  It’s entitled “Political Rehab” and it features political figures who have fallen from grace and are trying to make a comeback.  I can see it now.  Larry Craig and Rod Blagojevich commiserating over lobster tails and cocktails as they try to justify or explain away their conduct and plan their next runs for office.

Zolitics, The Political Entertainment Network, currently only exists on the internet but talks have begun to turn it into a cable network or network broadcast.

All I know is, for me the only television I watch consists of viewing that is limited and devoted to specialty channels like C-Span, cable news, The History Channel and Animal Planet.

OK, and sometimes the Food Network.

Specialty stations have become quite successful within niche markets they serve and so I think The Political Entertainment Network stands a good chance at making the jump from the web to television.

As the creator and author of a blog called POLITICS 24/7, a twenty four seven political entertainment network is right up my alley. And I am probably not alone. Many of you who are reading this would probably find yourself flicking to that channel more often than not.

So prepare yourself for the coming of network that combines Saturday Night Live with The West Wing and intermingles  Meet The Press with Real Houswives of New York.    

Visit Zolitics.com and get a sneak peak of what their Fall launch lineup is like.
