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, 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.
...btw...who in the hell is Helen Barkin??....
...Oh its Ellen Barkin...well that's different...WTF is Ellen Barkin???
And, more to the point, Who cares?
Hollywood; where vanity and amorality meet each day for lunch, and send the bill to the decent and humble.

Some kind of “actress” from the 80’s, casting couch type.
Looks more like 'pushed up' to me.
I have never read such incoherent ramblings.
They have nothing to do with anything.
You beat me to the crooked mouth bit. I thought I was the only one who noticed.
Sounds like she has a crooked brain, too!
A double Viagra and a shot of Cialis would be in order.
As an old vet once told me,”Wrap a flag around her head, and f**k her for old glory.”
Looks like she was in one decent movie — Diner — almost 30 years ago. Since then, not so much.
Fox News is a tool of the left. That is all.
to be fair, that's not the best picture of her...here's a better one (snicker)
“Like, the Religious Right has identified themselves because of the propagandizing and illiteracy of...I dont know...News Corp, maybe?”
Like, TOTALLY. Oh mah gawd and stuff! Republicans are like, grody!
http://snarkerati.com/galleries/index.php/Ellen-Barkin ~ shows everything ~ I think ~ she used to think she was a hotty.
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
Looks to me like she is in serious need of a stool softener, or at least, to eat more fiber.
washed up actress:”The big Easy” was one of her movies...I would describe her as shop worn!!!
I’m working on a pretty good limerick in her honor.
Do these people REALLY believe than anyone aside from their fellow hollywood denizens care what they think?
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.
That picture really flatters her, she needs a nose job bad hers looks like Joe Frazier pushed it in!!!
OK, here it is:
Every time Elly Barkin swoons,
Her knockers pop out like balloons.
..But her agent stands by
..Dollar signs in his eye
And lifts them back in with warm spoons.
Nyuk nyuk nyuk
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.
