Ellen Barkin Attacks Fox News, Calls Its Correspondents Liars
hollywoodreporter.com ^ | Nov.7, 2011 | Sofia M. Fernandez

Posted on 11/08/2011 5:49:29 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Ellen Barkin lashes out at Fox News in a recent interview, accusing the network of "blatant lying."

The outspoken Barkin has a reputation for candor, whether in person or on her Twitter account, and her take on the News Corp. entity is no exception.

She tells the Los Angeles Times magazine, "Well, we’re experiencing divisiveness in terms of our politics. Like, the Religious Right has identified themselves because of the propagandizing and illiteracy of...I don’t know...News Corp, maybe?

"They have identified themselves with this extremist, right-wing insurgency of a party—this Tea Party. They call it a grassroots movement. Grassroots? You’re attached to the wrong ship. And that just shows you the enormous—and don’t misquote me here!—the enormous success that has killed us in terms of Fox News."

Barkin then attacks the channel for lacking journalistic integrity, "The blatant lying that passes itself off as journalism. I don’t even need to get there to go mental. Can you imagine a legitimate newsperson -- Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw -- just lying on the news? Let alone the entertainment factor -- you know, news as entertainment."

Dan was just sooooo truthful. We all recall that from his coup with the George W national guard stories. And Walter, ol Walter portrayed all of our victories on the ground in Vietnam as defeats. Soooo truthful!

Ellen Barkin had great legs. But, they just went up and made an ass of themselves.

“You’re attached to the wrong ship. And that just shows you the enormous—and don’t misquote me here!—the enormous success that has killed us in terms of Fox News.”

Does anyone speak `moron’? What’s she trying to say? There’s some sort of misplaced naval metaphor then she seems to say that Fox is kicking their butts. (?)

She must need work. This is how they advertise. Pathetic, ain’t it?

Looks like she was in one decent movie — Diner — almost 30 years ago. Since then, not so much.

Yes, I am just moving past the assault on the eyes (has NOT aged well) to the substance of the quotes, and conclude she is a low grade moron.

But, hey, in this "Democracy", foisted upon us by Constitutional Amendment, she has a vote that means as much as mine or yours.

"Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death." James Madison

Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. John Adams: letter to John Taylor, April 15, 1814

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.:Thomas Jefferson

Funny, I always thought she was hot, in sort of a quirky way. But while waiting for The Herminator last night on Jimmie Kimmel, I turned on Leno and she came on. What a whackadoodle ditz!!! Lost all sex appeal. She was rambling about her 27000 insta-friends from Twitter that she now has. Sounded to me like a lonely washed up has-been. I actually felt pity for her.

So after seeing that, this solidifies the truth of the package - lonely has-been with typical worldly/Hollywood perspective of black is white and white is black polar opposite distortions of reality.

Her knockers pop out like balloons.

And lifts them back in with warm spoons.

I notice how they always claim “lies!” but never give any examples.

This is just another dimwit liberal skank who got by on her looks for a few years, now is all used up and irrelevant and is angry about it and wants to lash out.
