Fox News Tilts Away from Rick Perry
9/23/2011 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 09/23/2011 10:30:29 AM PDT by mitchell001

Last night's Fox News debate choice of questions, Hannity's lack of Rick Perry post debate interview, and Hannity's strained Rick Perry interview Wednesday night show that Fox News has an anti-Perry tilt.

Was the lack of a Hannity Perry interview due to a choice by Perry or Fox or both?

No it doesn’t.

Weren’t people just claiming Fox News has an anti-Palin stance? Even though she works for.........Fox News.

I am sure Hannity would have liked to have Rick Perry as a guest last night, apparently Perry either wasn’t interested or didn’t tell Sean either way.

Fact is, Perry had a horrible debate last night and he deserves much of the criticism he is getting. That doesn’t mean Fox News is suddenly against him. It just means he is being vetted properly.

Perry has not impressed me at all.

But if you look at the bright side (if your behind him 100%), the media bias will get him prepared for what will come. If he can’t handle the Fox bias now, what will he do with the other networks.

Rick Perry over the last two debates has pretty much called Americans like me “Heartless Racists.”

Maybe he should try MSDNC?

Duh, how do you know he did not turn down a post debate appearance. I mean he did not need to drive anymore nails in the casket.

They did him a favor he soiled himself with the Conservatives have not heart comment so it was best he just go home. It gave Obama an ad that will run over and over and over next year. Remember the Dems are all about good intentions not necessarily results. Perry going forward is going to be messy now.

I don't think I'm alone here.....what I've been seeing on Fox (up until yesterday) is a rather friendly bias towards Perry, a somewhat favorable bias towards Romney, and a negative bias towards Palin.

Have things changed today?

I think Fox news has gotten wrapped up around their own self-perceived importance. O’Reilly has been this way for years. Anywho, I think the so-called “conservatives” at Fox see themselves as kingmakers and “We Report - You Decide” was thrown out long ago. In some respects, they have gotten as bad as the other networks.

FOX has been pimping for Romney and Christie for some time. They have subtly trashed the conservatives. Guess Ailes is behind it.

I thought Perry did pretty good with Hannity on Wednesday night. Its not FNC’s fault that Perry stumbled his way through last nights debate.

Why Perry wasn't on the post debate show probably had to do with a scheduling conflict, or the Governor was licking his wounds.

A general Mutt tilt. Hannity is more simply a shi’te stirrer entertainer , that’s the basis for his shows. The “debate moderators” have never been even remotely pro-Perry, only cordial until its time to spin for Mutt, not to mention that conservative bastion Google.

Don’t agree. Perry probably wasn’t much in the mood for an interview anyhow after his pathetic performance. And, of course, the Fox debate moderators never asked HIM about DADT. At worst, he’s being treated with benign neglect.

“Faux News has been pimping Mittens since the part started.”

Geez, I’ve never seen that expression on this board before. Are you aware that when you read it, it says “Foe News?” Is that how you fee them, as the foe?

If you want to be cleaver, you need the phrase to be a clever play on words. But even that doesn’t really work, does it? Not as well as say, “See BS” does. See how that works? Say it, read it, it describes the network perfectly.

Give up on Foe News.” It’s lame.

I hate that commercial, too, and change the channel as soon as it comes on. They apparently just want to appeal to homosexuals, which is fine with me. They can have them. I prefer Orbitz.

I agree Perry is hurt by his debate performance. However, his stance on immigration has turned me from a supporter to a nonsupporter. If he hardens his stance on immigration I may come back.

It is unfortunate that Gingrich has so much "baggage!"

How odd can it get? I’m on illegal immigration 24/7 so obviously I’m not a Perry fan.But tell me how on God’s green earth that was a smart strategy for him on immigration.
He should have gotten sanctuary passed AT LEAST-before starting his campaign.
There is no “path to citizenship” for these illegal alien college students. IT IS AGAINST FED CODE. Perry is totally misleading on law here.Anyone that breaks into this nation illegally and remains in this nation beyond 6 months is ineligible to apply for residency or citizenship.

So what if Fox is biased one way or the other. Listen to all sides, read between the lines, and then make up your own mind.

Regardless, our goal should be to back whoever is nominated and remove 0 from the White House. We must also gain control of the Senate and dilute the power of the presidency.

The point is these claims are bunk. People constantly whine that Fox is out to get their candidate and it's utter nonsense.

Perry has also had plenty of good coverage from Fox. He's now done poorly in a few debates and is getting some criticism and pointed questions. Big deal, it isn't a conspiracy to hurt Perry. Fox is not out to get Palin, Perry or anyone else.

“If you want to be cleaver, you need the phrase to be a clever play on words”

Somebody hasn’t been doing his French homework. :) “Faux” in French means “false.” Hence False News. It was a clever play on words, albeit one used by liberals extensively over the past 5-years or so.

FoxNews basically marginalized Bachmann last evening, asked her few questions.

FoxNews continued what CNN managed to get started last week, but MSNBC failed to accomplish — getting the wannabes to go after each other.

It makes for a good side show atmosphere but that is about all.

Isn’t Hannity already the only TV host or reporter that Perry’s seen fit to be interviewed by so far in the campaign? And wasn’t that interview just this past week?

You really don’t expect Perry to muster himself for two such interviews so early in his campaign, do you?

Perry rarely does very good in these “sound byte debates”, same in the Texas ones. If and whenever we get to some 2 or 3 on stage, he works better because there is more time to offer details in a real debate format, not just prepared comebacks.

Up against nobama one on one, he would look much better.

The whiners are having a glitter party this morning as Rick delivers the long game goods, but loses the debate....again.
Never seen so many naive citizen pol’s on FR, enabling the RINO ROMNEY, who never shows up anywhere but for debate night. All this ground work to deliver for the media, the RINO cabal, FOX, the LUNTZ forum, the neocon websites, NRO, Malkin of all people, all to promote Palin, who will snipe rightously, but never run.

That’s funny right there ;-) Nice bling on Missus G last night, I noticed. Sometimes Dana looks pretty good, other times like she came straight from the gym.

Fox News is the best we got, but it’s still run by people who are fundamentally elitists, but who happened to notice there is life out in the red states, so why not present both sides of issues instead of just one.

You’re right in your appraisal of Hannity and FOX in general. But if Perry continues on in this way, does he really deserve the nomination? He’s got as many negatives as Romney, and they’re different ones.....I could see the drums beating for Romney literally TWO years ago-—and I could see among the talking heads on radio and TV who are ostensibly on “our” side, that Hannity was not resolute and would never come out forcefully for anyone until late in the game-—he’s both “Mediator” and “Weathervane”. Levin, Mark Steyn and Rush are a different story, but none of them
will be able to either back or not back Sarah Palin until and unless she actually gets in the race. Romney seems the choice of both the MSM and Fox. It increasingly looks like we are left with NO candidate who could sweep us off our feet and get us believing that they’re actually going to make a difference, because to do that a candidate has to grasp the entirety of just how bad the last two years especially have been and just what a seriously deranged ‘leadership’ we’ve had to put up with. In this context Cain actually looks good.Palin is the only one who has articulated the right things, but she has GOT to announce, and start submitting herself to the heat all over again. This is the final phase of the “Pro Game” and time is running out.
