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, were experiencing divisiveness in terms of our politics. Like, the Religious Right has identified themselves because of the propagandizing and illiteracy of...I dont know...News Corp, maybe?
"They have identified themselves with this extremist, right-wing insurgency of a partythis Tea Party. They call it a grassroots movement. Grassroots? Youre attached to the wrong ship. And that just shows you the enormousand dont 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 dont 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."

Who? I have no idea who this woman is.
Sorry Ellie RATHER DID LIE! Why don’t you call Gloria Alred and claim that Cain felt you up also....
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!
The aptly-named Ellen Barkin.
Who is Ellen Barkin? Sounds like she’s barkin’ up the wrong tree.
...just another Hollywood delta bravo.
Ellen Barkin had great legs. But, they just went up and made an ass of themselves.
Me neither. Do you think Ellen is Barkin up the wrong tree?
“Youre attached to the wrong ship. And that just shows you the enormousand dont 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?
Well Ellen you are no longer my second favorite actress.
People like Barkin gave us Obama. No laughing matter.
Who the hell is this idiot? Never even heard of her. Maybe someone needs to remind this looney tune of the occupiers who are taking craps on the street and raping children
Another one I will not watch anymore.
Yes. They have. Especially Cronkite and Rather.
