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.

POLITICS AND DINNER DON’T GO TOGETHER

I have to apologize here from the get go. The other night my partner Nick, and I went out to a local diner for a quick bite to eat. We were seated at a booth in between a group of four behind me and a group of three senior citizens behind Nick. While perusing the menu my ears caught the phrase “I don’t like Obama”. It came from one of the ladies in the group sitting behind Nick .

Being preoccupied by politics, certain buzz words like election, President, McCain, or Obama, catch my attention even when I am not paying attention.

So this older woman’s utterance of the word “Obama” lit up my on my radar screen. Even though it may have been impolite to pay attention to a conversation not involving me, I couldn’t help myself.

So I apologize for any impolite eavesdropping, that I may be guilty of. It wasn’t my intent but I’m a political junkie, and as such, this election season is for me what Christmas is to a wide eyed, little boy.  It’s like the Super Bowl to football fans and I am just in tune to any references to politics. Besides, to put it nicely, this woman was not using her inside voice. So curiosity got the best of me and I paid attention to the political opinion that was unfolding.

The woman went on to say “I don’t like Obama but he’s got my vote”. The woman explained further “those Republicans are only for the rich and big business”

At this point the waitress came over to take the orders of Nick and I. Being distracted, I let my partner order first and I than quickly determined what I wanted. With my attention taken off of the conversation that I was not a part of, Nick and I started our own banter.

When the waitress returned with our drink orders, both Nick and myself happened to hear that same woman I overheard earlier say “and that “McCann”, “he just wants to give tax breaks to big companies”. At this point I had just begun to take a sip of my Pepsi with lemon and no ice when she continued “and who are those big businesses to make as much money as they do. They shouldn’t be allowed to make that much money in the first place”.

Upon hearing that , I gagged on my soda. Having caught that remark from right behind him, Nick knew what the cause of my discomfort was.

We were about to eat and after having heard what I just heard, I could not allow myself to pay any further attention and still be able to stomach the meal I was about to eat.

Nick knew my blood pressure was rising and quickly tried to establish our own conversation and provide a diversion from that which had me fuming. Our food came and we discussed the details of the event we were heading out to DJ.

Through it all, I could not help but allow the words of that woman to echo in my head. I couldn’t stop wondering if she actually knew what she said. Did she really believe, that in America, people should only be allowed to make a certain amount of money? Did she actually believe Democrat talking points and accept them as the truth?

I thought to myself, how little this woman really knew and how misinformed she was. Yet, despite her lack of understanding , awareness and information, she threw her words out with total conclusiveness and decisiveness. This is a woman who referred to John McCain as “John McCann”. She didn’t even know his name yet she acted like a brilliant sage who proclaimed Republicans are only for the rich and that businesses should only be allowed to make a certain amount of money.

What this woman neglected to realize was that Republicans and “John McCann” do not believe in penalizing success. They do not support limiting opportunity or making our government some type of communist politburo that does everything from control your wages to determining what, how and where your children are educated. She didn’t understand that Republicans were not for the rich or sponsors of class warfare but that they didn’t believe in penalizing success or taxation that goes so far that it taxes the dead and buried. This bitter, jealous woman could not wrap her head around the fact that “John McCann” is not trying to keep her down but that he is trying to prevent government from holding her back.

All these thoughts raced through my mind as Nick and I ate and as I tried to focus on our own discussion.

We chatted away and finished up our meal but in the back of my head I could not stop thinking about how gullible this woman was. She actually believed in the liberal bumper sticker slogans and campaign catch phrases that promoted liberal socialist policies in brightly colored wrapping paper and big ribbons and bows. She admitted that she didn’t even like Barack Obama. Yet because he was a Democrat and since they were against the rich, she was for them.

Beyond angering me, it worried me. I worried about how many more people in America held her thinking and how many despised the free market that comes with our democracy? How many Americans were actually supporting socialism and wanted to adopt it as our way of life?

With our meal finished, I got up before Nick to find our waitress. I put on my McCain-Palin jacket, prominently, found the waitress and asked her for not only my check but for the check of the people at the table behind Nick. I told her that I wanted to pay for it. The waitress was taken back for a moment and said “Oh, Ok, here ya go”. After paying and getting my change, I asked if she could give me a blank dinner check to write a message on and that she could give to the customers I paid for. She handed one to me and I wrote:

 

“Dear Fellow Americans;
I paid your check.
I did so because this is still America and in it I can still make as much as my ambition, skill, and willingness to make allows. In it I am also still allowed to keep enough of it so that I can spend as much of it as I want and on what I want. If Barack Obama is elected he will determine all that for me. So enjoy my generosity while you can because if you get your way, we will all be losing our own ways.

P.S.: John McCain is the man trying to preserve democracy. Tom McCann is the company you buy your shoes from.”

Upon leaving the diner with Nick, and after paying for more meals than I expected, just to make a point, I realized that just like the government should do, I too should mind my own business.

  A Quickie 

One day George W. Bush and Dick Cheney walk into a diner. A waitress walks up to them and asks if she can take their order. Bush leans close to her and says, “Honey, can I have a quickie?”

The waitress is appalled and yells at the President about women’s rights and storms away.

Cheney then says to Bush, “George, its pronounced ‘quiche’.”

An Open Letter To Keith Olbermann and NBC.

Failed Sportscaster, and Demoted Newsman Keith Olbermann, The New Tokyo Rose

Dear Depraved, Liar;
I happened to see your low rated program “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”. I would have turned you off like most Americans do but I was curious. I wondered if you were as big a schmuck as I have been told you were. Like passing a car wreck on the Garden State Parkway, I just had to look and see if it was possible for a news station to be as irresponsible as I have been told NBC is.

 Not only did I find that it was possible, I was stunned by the outright lies and offensiveness of the so called program you attempted to get through, . For almost thirty minutes you polluted the air with disgusting innuendos, blatant lies, and the greatest amount of disinformation ever transmitted since Tokyo Rose tried to discourage American troops from carrying out their valiant missions to defend democracy. For me, you were even more offensive than Tokyo Rose. She was not an American. She was not operating under any rules of decency or fairness. You however, are suppose to be, and yet, you flout those qualities as if they were Sunday comic strips.

 You conduct yourself in a way that strips any sense of integrity or decency away from NBC. It is no wonder why they have placed you on their sagging cable news outlet, MSNBC. It would also explain why MSNBC is so low in the ratings.

 What I do wonder about is how they can possibly keep putting you on any air?

 You failed at your job as a sportscaster, and somehow got utilized by NBC for delivering the news. Since then you have proved incompetent and along with your sidekick, Chris Mathews, got booted from that job and now you are left only with your appearance in a goofball, commentary segment.

 After seeing your performance, I have concluded that you must be offering sexual favors to some important troll at NBC. It is the only apparent reason that anyone could possibly have for employing you.

 On your program you lied exactly 13 times about John McCain and  9 times about Sarah Palin, the only two people that your show discussed.   Additionally, you called them racists and liars.  In the past you have even accused John McCain of treason and through it all you never once made a reference to any facts.

 Your despicable conduct, irrational behavior, prejudiced judgment and skewed logic has no place in an intelligent society.

Beyond that, the blatant hatred that you conveyed in your fairy tales, during this program, carried over. They conjured up the same sense of hatred for you that you aired for those who are not liberals, So much so that I must relay my own wishes for you.

 After witnessing your despicable program, it is my deepest hope that you are blown out of your ivory tower and have your legs and arms broken as you fall to the earth where a group of wild thugs spit on you while punching and kicking you. Then, with almost every bone in your body broken, I sincerely hope they throw you into a New York City sewer for 5 years, where you are fed a piece of bread a day and left to drink the raw sewerage that flows around you. And through it all, I want NBC to repeatedly report, day after day, that for your efforts, you are being accused of turning your back on any and all sense of journalistic integrity and for treason to the United States.

 You should be forced to endure the same conditions that the man you ridicule, belittle and lie about, endured during his service for and to our country.

But you, Mr. Olbermann, are not alone in the need for public denunciation. The corporate goons who afford you the opportunity to play the role of a modern day Tokyo Rose should pay even more dearly.

The dwindling ratings of NBC, due to mediocre programming, has been forcing them to scramble for survival for more than two years. Their hopes for MSNBC to help alleviate the suffering of it’s parent company has failed. MSNBC loses out to all other competitors and now they are having trouble selling air time to advertisers. Circumstances such as this are not only expected, but their irresponsible conduct in airing people, such as yourself, makes these results well deserved.

 

NBC is allowing you to fan the flames of hatred. They are allowing you to exploit a polarized electorate by polarizing them even more. NBC is allowing you to plant the seeds of anger during one of our nations most important moments, a national election. IT is a time when we must all be responsible in determining the direction we will head in and yet NBC uses it as an opportunity to breed anger.

 

Mr. Olbermann, I write these things not in an attempt for ratings or the undeserved, lucrative paycheck that you receive, I write this to you because your behavior can not be ignored and because it should not be kept the great secret that your low ratings allow it to be. I write this because responsible people should take it upon themselves to denounce such conduct and demand that it not be rewarded. I also write this to let you know that through your lies, false accusations and deceit, your hateful objectives have achieved their goal. They have created anger, but that anger is not aimed at the targets you hoped. It is directed towards you.

GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT

 

 

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said someone may steal from it at night; so they created a night watchman, GS-4 position, and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning division and hired two (2) people, one person to write the instructions (GS-12) and one person to do time studies (GS-11).

Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a quality control (QC) division and hired two (2) people, one (GS-9) to do the studies and one (GS-11) to write the reports.

Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So they created a payroll division with a time keeper (GS-9) and a payroll officer (GS-11), and hired two (2) people.

Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative division and hired three (3) people: an Admin Officer (GM-13), Assistant Admin Officer (GS-13), and a Legal Secretary (GS-8).

Then, one year later, Congress reviewed the operation of the desert scrap yard and said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget. We must cut back overall costs!” So they eliminated the night watchman
