Skip to comments.Klein: Fox's 'hateful crap' borders on 'sedition'
Posted on 10/25/2009 4:22:04 AM PDT by Scanian
For a fascinating glimpse into the seething and completely unhinged liberal mind check out Joe Kleins dark and disturbing rant over at Time Magazine. The first line of the piece reads:
"Let me be precise here: Fox News peddles a fair amount of hateful crap. Some of it borders on sedition. Much of it is flat out untrue."
Although Kleins vitriol is off the charts it pales in comparison to what can only be described as his unseemly boot licking. Heres an example:
"If the problem is that stories bloated far beyond their actual importance -- ACORN's corruption, Van Jones's radical past -- are in danger of leaching out of the Fox hothouse into the general media, then perhaps the Administration should be a bit more diligent about whom it hires and whom it funds."
When a writer worries about stories in danger of leaching out he or she can best be described as a storm trooper, not a journalist.

Now that's a good old word, one that hasn't entered our politics in a long, long time.
My answer: Smile when you say that, Klein, because them's fightin' words.
Fox is the only net that reports the news.
NBC, owned by GE is in the tank for Hussein as are all the other major networks. They didnt run the ACORN stories, they didnt run the Van Jones stories. They are protecting their little fascist.
Klein is deeply disappointed that Fox is interfering w/ the socialists’ agenda.
And Olberman calling conservatives “mashed up bags of meat” is just tough love, right?
If the definition of sedition = “speaking critically about the criminal bastards running our nation” then I guess I’m guilty too. :(
These people are nothing but losers. To try and make this argument is such a farce. We all know the other networks are in the bag for Obama, and we also know Fox only seems right leaning because they report for the most part, fairly. Liberal journalist can’t stand this fact so they show their asses by seething. As far as I’m concerned Klien can go pound sand while I laugh at him for his complete biased idiocy!
Obama’s obsession with Fox News just might cause some interesting dynamics to appear on the international scale and within the ranks of “journalism.”
if we still had the Alien and Sedition acts....zer0bama would qualify for both
Call me a Seditionist. I REFUSE TO BE SILENCED!
Call me a Teabagger. I REFUSE TO BE SILENCED!
Call me a birther. I REFUSE TO BE SILENCED!
No carpet-munching, child-molesting, America-hating Communist will silence me.
“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic.” SWMNBN
How is it that America suffers such narcissistic fools who can not stop whining when they dont get their way? For I think America is too nice to these people (now hows that for bad English). I can only guess the fish is rotting from the head down.
“If the problem is that stories bloated far beyond their actual importance — ACORN’s corruption, Van Jones’s radical past — are in danger of leaching out of the Fox hothouse into the general media, then perhaps the Administration should be a bit more diligent about whom it hires and whom it funds.”
Gosh, Joe Klein..It sounds like you want ideas different than yours to be censored. No debate..No true “multiculturalism,” no true equality..Just totalitarianism, marxism, communism, fascism or whatever “ism” is required to take away the voice of those who might have a different point of view. Well, Americans are not ready for your kind of thinking yet, Joe. Methinks some strong opposition might happen if people like you choose to take away our First Amendment Rights, buried down in a remote corner of some bill not having anything to do with free speech. We are awake now and we are watching.
So when the merd hits the air-moving apparatus and the networks MUST report the facts, including the imposition of Martial Law (which will never be rescinded without revolution) then the sheeple will wonder why no one told them this was coming.
The White House can’t stand Fox News’ criticism, so you just run out and write anything to defend this administration.
Do you call THAT news?!
Personally, I think that Obama’s ‘hateful socialism’ goes well beyond bordering on sedition. Intentionally violating the Constitution that our Liar-in-Chief swore to preserve, protect, and defend is treason. I hope Obama sees the light and turns to side with America, the side of good.
Explain to me, Joe, how exposing Obama's thugs, hinchmen and fellow Marxists using their own words, documented in video clips and their own writing, is either hateful or untrue?????
Klein is a socialist sock puppet. Only can parrot what’s approved for release by his handlers.
Sedition is in his mirror
If it was for waiting room magazine racks he’d be cleaning toliets at rest stops on the interstate
Seriously, it won’t be long before Obama and the left start using the force of government to start silencing critics, and the MSM will fully support it.
Look, a national emergency for the FLU?? Let’s all get conditioned to have the government step in and takeover whatever next, such as FOX.
Klien must be the one Time’s keeping to turn out the lights.
TIME? ‘Nuff said, nobody reads Time anymore.
Really? That's an interesting standard to be raised by anyone in the MSM. Let's remember it for the next time some conservative finds himself in an all-out media firestorm because of some minor stumble, out-of-context quote, or remote association.
The MSM will pivot on a dime to hype Democrat attack lines of attack, no matter how trivial. And ACORN? One grows weary of saying it, but Joe Klein really should pause to consider how the story would be played if ACORN were a right wing outfit with a long history of vote fraud, street level thuggery, and close associations with a Republican president.
The amount of immaturity that the Left has put on display lately is truly amazing.
Because they won 53% of the presidential vote under false pretenses, they think they have the right to establish an American Reich and try to trample their opponents into the dirt.
Not only immature but delusional as well.
After reading wannabe WH courtier Klein’s piece, the first thought in my mind was,”does the man ever stop to swallow?”
Well, does he? Ick.
I thought when Bush was gone, the Left would regain its sanity?? Apparently there are deeper problems than we previously believed....
GE’s stock has sunk so low that they are beyond desperate for government contracts. They will do literally anything to defend their best chance at making big money—a “corporatist”(Mussolini’s original name for fascism) regime under Obama with GE one of government’s hand-picked corporate “winners.”
On the other hand, I don't think most liberals have any idea of the depth of contempt in which they are held by conservatives. They lie systematically and as a first choice, not a last resort, and they're so deep in their own bubble that they really don't think we notice.
Conservatives are far from perfect, but we at least tend to debate seriously the arguments being advanced by the other side, as opposed to ignoring them and hiding behind straw men and ad hominen attacks.
Engaging in a bit of psychological projection, Mr. Klein?
Joe Klein has utilized all of his talents and capabilities to pen a column that is little more than a series of fact-free name-calling statements. That suits Klein well, as it matches the depth of his understanding of facts and history.
^^^^Seditionist also, and will be every time big government steps over the boundaries of it’s limited powers under the Constitution. They’ve been going wayyyyy to far for the last two decades and it’s time they were pushed back to DC.
Hey Klein, remind us how the left winged media tried to destroy the last administration with trumped up charges of phony military documents and DUI and cocaine charges.
Sedition —> used frequently during the Bush Administration by Michael Savage when describing the liberals and their antics.
Joe Klein, a gutless coward who writes books using the assumed name “Anonymous”.
I’ve asked myself several times, if Obama wanted to send a contingent of Secret Service agents into the Fox offices with padlocks on some flimsy “national security” pretext, who really could stop them?
We will only know what they want us to know - facts, as we know them, will be constrained under a Martial Law declaration.
The sheeple (a David Gold coined word) will cower and applaud the protections afforded to them by the Feds. Those few that whine about the situation too loudly will be arrested and otherwise silenced.
Declaration of Martial Law is serious business and not to conflated with Constitutional rights viz a vie freedom of speech, movement, gatherings (live or online), and expression.
"Martial Law (which will never be rescinded without revolution)"...
Civil war is a better word choice, since what is hapening now is a revolution.
The 0bama admin. is sedition .
