Skip to comments.FoxNews running with mainstream media wolf pack
Posted on 11/07/2008 8:57:53 AM PST by Yomin Postelnik
Its two days after the US presidential election, and the mainstream media is still shoveling out the propaganda.
Having gotten away with calling a predicted landslide that never happened, theyre now elevating two-day-old, USA President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama as President of the World.
The only news of emerging world presidents is Vladimir Putins plot to return as Russian president.

All “News” Networks are the same . . . just pandering to whoever will listen so they can make a buck. I have no use for any of them.
I had to turn it off...finally.
It’s just become unwatchable.
Let them. Since the night of the election I haven’t watched any MSM news and don’t intend to. I will be getting my news strictly from the internet and talk radio from now on. I really can’t watch those insufferable talking heads any more. Waste of time.
Maybe FOX news should be renamed as Jackal News.
I turned off PMSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC a long time ago. Fox News has now been turned off. I can get my news exclusively from the internet. It’s done. Bye bye, Fox.
About MSM not poster!
I found how the World had been misled by prostitute Writers,
to ascribe the greatest Exploits in War to Cowards,
the wisest Counsel to Fools,
Sincerity to Flatterers,
Roman Virtue to Betrayers of their Country,
Piety to Atheists,
Chastity to Sodomites,
Truth to Informers.
Jonathan Swift (III:8;5)
Is there anyone on the planet, producing alpha waves, who didn’t know Putin would find a way back to the presidency? Come on, it’s what Commies do.
Fox who? I’ll check back after the love fest.
Fox has joined the media enemies of a free America. My wife and I therefore no longer watch Faux News
I’ve joined the narional boycott of Faux News channel.
No Fox no time.
I think it is time to cancel my cable.
Thank you Canada!
They want back on the plane!!!
And that would be the truth! I think viewers are mad as hell with the outrageous, unfair, non-stop two year long election coverage. Wake me up for the next hurricane.
FOX is going to wind up wandering in the wilderness with McCain. The left hates them, and they’re alienating their natural audience. Idiots.
I think you are right! :)
Scurvy dogs, the whole lot of them.
The bottom line will always win out. Fox is as self serving as the rest of the pack. If their ratings go down, they’ll start sounding a little more fair and balanced, if not, they sound like the rest.
I’m Mad As Hell and I’m Not Going Take It Anymore!
Similarly back in the late 1970’s an excellent movie called Network included a scene in which a main character implores his television program audience to run to their doors, and windows, and shout out “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”, this inspired people in the movie theater to stand up and scream that they were mad as hell, and that they weren’t going to take it anymore.
Kerasotes theater matrons would run out at precisely that moment in the film, and try to get people to sit down, and shut up. It was a most pathetic display of squareness on their part, but their understanding of audience mentality was right. People don’t generally go to a movie to listen to other members of the audience shout - actually it was kind of fun!
YOU HEAR THAT IT IS KIND OF FUN... JUST STAND UP, RUN TO THE DOORS AND WINDOWS, AND SCREAM “I AM NOT PUTTING UP WITH THE MEDIA ANYMORE, I AM MAD AS HELL”...SAY IT LOUDER...JUST DO IT YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOO.
The media would lose advertisers, and they deserve too, Boycott those who advertise on the news networks... Isn’t it time?
News is turned off on my TV including local news. No more cable news on my TV — turned off the alphabet networks years ago.
Sports now dominate my TV!
His snarky, lying hateful remarks about Palin were discusting.
He is a despicable person.
Fox News not refuting him and sending him over to the MSM shows their views.
Fox is now part of the MSM.
Welcome to irrelevancy, Fox.
It’s been refreshing not to watch any of the news programs.
Rented a movie last night, instead of watching Fox self destruct...
I’m sorry to see FOX news turn to the left. I have turned them off in the last couple of weeks.
The one I really would like to see flop is O’Reily. He is more dangerous than most because he claims as loudly as possible to be neutral. His claims are only propped up by the occasional non issue that he throws to conservatives. When it counts, he is as biased as Colmes. If you have any doubt you should see the Cameron “sources say” crap about Palin the other night and then click on last nights talking points where he tries to defend it without taking on the primary point.
I wish I could get an honest all out boycott of this guy started. It would make him understand that if he really wants to be better than the MSNBC crowd he has to be principled every night on every issue.
Fox News will tank. Why watch a liberal-lite news networks when you have a choice of several full-throated ones.
FOX is dead to me since yesterday.
I am not watching it. I can’t stomach it anymore.
That is a very interesting point.
Reminds me of a recent Presidential election.
Why vote for a liberal-lite candidate when you have a choice of a full-throated one.
Drudge: FOXNEWS Greta Van Susteren obtains first post election interview with Gov. Palin

FOXNEWS Greta Van Susteren obtains first post election interview with Gov. Palin... Van Susteren traveling to Alaska for extensive sit-down interview with Palin to air Monday night exclusively... Developing...bttt
I haven’t watched Fox for quite awhile. At first I enjoyed some of the programs but they devolved into snarky shouting matches where all is sound and fury and nothing is communicated. But in some ways I guess I feel sorry for the network. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to be neutral in something as polarized as a national election. This is especially true of this very emotional election and the best a “fair and balanced” network can do is try to offset partisans on one side against partisans on the other side. Particularly in this election, it was extreme against extreme. Obviously they did some things right because Obama seemed obsessed with condemning Fox News and that is where the network is now running between Scylla and Charybdis: the loyal watchers want their old network back but Obama seems quite capable of carrying on grudges (and his choice of Emanuel proves this) and penalizing the network in the future. So the network can be loyal to its fans and be shut out of interviews and such during the next four years, or it can jump on the Obama bandwagon to ensure access to the administration.
Unfortunately we have come to the point in politics where if “you aren’t for us, you’re against us” (i.e., if you aren’t openly my friend, I consider you my enemy). Now, it has always been that way but it seems more open or blatant now and that has translated to new coverage. Certainly the open partisanship of the MSM during this election has made it impossible to claim journalistic impartiality as the standard of the profession.
The result is it is no longer possible to be “fair and balanced” and it was only a pretense in the first place anyway. No one is absolutely impartial and everyone sees events through their own colored lenses. The best thing that can come of this election might be to help people stop trusting any one source of news and develop their own system of learning truths. That is actually the best protection against manipulation by MSM or any other “Big Brother”.
I can’t stomach the news..my TV has been on the NHL channel...I am pretty sure I won’t see BO on there...football I love..hockey is my passion....been a Pens fan for years...watching them is the only thing saving the little bit of sanity I have left...
They were the worst part of the McCain despair that kept our voters away from the polls. There are a few exceptions, but they’re few and far between at a network that was supposed to be better than that.
We need to keep our spirits up. :)
Me too, Mom.
There's 'stuff' to be found on the net like @ NRO Online and YouTube and maybe even hulu.com.
If all else fails--books.
I will not have have my mind rotted and emotions toyed with.
Can't comment on any other channel because I never watch them.
The spinterview gave obama the allusion he passed the test from the right.
When challenged on his softball spinterview, o'prick said, 'hey i asked him questions and he answered. what do you want me to do?'
no spinzone my ass. o'prick snowed us serfs.
Although I have defended them, even as early as this morning, the writing is on the wall. They are going to cover for the inept Obama like the rest of them.
Duhbama was an embarrassment today, but they will pretend he wasn’t. His presser today was his stump speech. Pathetic, but they won’t mention it.
I am embarrassed for Fox.
Me too - and even though I’ve spent a lot of time on FR lately (as I used to years ago) - I’ve been getting a lot more done, too.
No more MSM for me!! - and yes - that includes FOX!!!
“I will be getting my news strictly from the internet and talk radio from now on. I really cant watch those insufferable talking heads any more. Waste of time.”
Agree. The MSM did everything they could to lambaste and dishonor every effort of Pres. Bush for 8 years - and they could not bring themselves to say anything against BO even with tons of evidence that he’s a charlatan. It’s sickening that it’s all love and tingles for that one all the time.
Are you my daughter? ;)
I will do anything but watch the news! My local news is just as bad as we voted 2-1 against Obama. Guess they didn’t get the message but they will as advertising dries up.
I wish I could take the newspaper without the front page too!
The sad thing is that this morning they were still far better than the rest. The others are rabid. Voices of reason aren’t found on TV.
