Oh... THAT's why Fox News can go fuck itself

By Ellipses

It looks like "Token" from South Park has some recurring gigs on Fox News as the "make us not look like crazy, pasty white guys by being a black voice of opposition-consultant."

I thought "all the blacks" voted for Obama because he was black...

Its beyond absurd that people swallow that crap hook, line and sinker.

When people defend FOX "News" they say that critics don't understand that the commentators are just offering their opinions on matters. The problems with that is, news anchors aren't supposed to constantly offer opinions on news. Leave that to the pundits later. Media Matters made a little video showing the "news" side appearing very similar to pundits like Beck and Hannity.

Oh, and you're definitely not a news organization when you relentlessly promote a protest in D.C. and then a producer pumps up the crowd behind the on-camera reporter.

You mean the protest they started? I understand they didn't cover the gay rights protest at all. Funny, the numbers between the two marches were roughly the same. You think that would be news.

What a cesspool of incestuous thought. You all remind me of dogs recycling their own vomit over and over again. Eat, puke, eat, puke.

Don’t be afraid of a lone Fox network that is voicing dissent. It’s all good.

So let’s recap. If Fox runs a story critical of the administration, from exposing nutball 9/11 “truther” green jobs czar Van Jones to taking a detailed look at the smoke and mirrors math and hidden landmines in proposed health-care legislation -- the other news organizations better not touch it with a ten foot poll. BO’s signal to corporations is just as crystal clear. Think twice before you run an ad on Fox.

Last Thursday, the administration tried to make the docile news outlets accomplices in an actual boycott of Fox. You know the other networks admirably refused, saying they would not interview Feinberg unless Fox was permitted to as well. It was a huge defeat because of the principle at stake.
It’s good and healthy when government debates and criticize opposition voices, but BO’s White House has gone beyond that. The BO Gang thinks they can actually delegitimize any significant dissent. And it’s blatantly obvious. White House aides openly told Politico they wage a deliberate campaign to marginalize and ostracize any who are disobedient. (Fox News; health insurers; U.S. Chamber of Commerce)

These tactics are not illegal or unconstitutional but they are tacky and embarrassing. The debate helps guarantee liberty by checking and balancing and restraining each other and an otherwise imperious government. There should be competition. There is nothing more American but they should also recognize legitimacy of other factions and, indeed, their necessity for a vigorous self-regulating democracy. Seeking to deliberately undermine, delegitimize and destroy is pathetic and worthy of Richard Nixon.

Fox News is a lone minority in an ocean of liberal media. ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, CNN, MSNBC vs. Fox. The lineup is so unbalanced it’s a fucking joke. Fox viewers number more than those of CNN and MSNBC combined. CNN recently fact-checked a "Saturday Night Live" skit mildly critical of President Obama, but did not bother to check the disgusting racist remarks that CNN falsely attributed to Rush Limbaugh. I have not seen Cylnsier retract his repetition of these widely acknowledged lies either.

And the icing on the cake is Fox’s ratings are up and BO’s ratings are down.

I will take the answer as a "duh."

I am whelmed.
