McCain: Fox News is 'schizophrenic'

By HADAS GOLD | 7/31/13 8:58 AM EDT

In a wide-ranging interview with The New Republic, Sen. John McCain called Fox News "schizophrenic" and spoke about his conversations with Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes about immigration.

"I think that Fox News is a bit schizophrenic," the Arizona Republican said in response to a question posed by Isaac Chotiner about how immigration reform is protrayed on Fox News. "I saw a guy on “Hannity,” maybe “Huckabee,” and the guy said, “You know, the Chinese are coming across our border, and they are going to commit cyber attacks.”

"They have to cross the border to do that?" Chotiner asked.

"Honest to God! 'They are going to commit cyber attacks,' McCain said.

When asked what Ailes and Murdoch say about whether the Republican party can "come along" on the issue, McCain said Murdoch is a supporter and Ailes is a realist.

"It is well known that Rupert Murdoch is a strong supporter of immigration reform. Roger Ailes is also a realist. He believes that immigration reform is vital to the country first, but also the GOP," McCain said.

But despite being a realist, Ailes does "not dictate" on the issue, McCain said, noting that Fox News host Sean Hannity has come out against the issue "and kept his job."

"I don’t think Roger Ailes is ham-fisted," McCain said.

McCain also blasted Katie Couric for "shredding" Sarah Palin.

Time to put a name tag on him and drop him off at the bus station with Biden.

The POS needs to be packed up and sent back to NVN with the Vietnamese being told that they should have kept him and we won’t take him back this time.

He really believes he is the new voice of the GOP.
I used to think he was just stupid.

There is more here than meets the eye.

McCain please just shut up.

Now.

You made Arizona proud, for a while. You did one or two good things, including picking Sarah Palin.

Stop while you are ahead.

He's not a traitor - he's a retard. Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence. He graduated at the bottom of his class. He was a reverse ace, losing 5 of his planes, one to hostile fire. McCain is Forrest Gump without the positive outcomes for other people.

The problem is that he won’t shut up. He’s as big a narcissist as Il’Douchebag.

I have never believed that HE selected Palin, I think she was pushed on him and he proceeded to ignore her for the rest of the campaign.

Was it really a good thing for her? Her political star was on the rise anyway. JM was self-serving by picking her and I doubt he even remembers his reasoning then. Gone even more bonkers now, more or less.

I think it's an organized media campaign by the current administration. Instead of Obama taking any flak for the imiigration fraud, the Syria debacle, or any of a dozen other issues they let McCain be their front man. He deflects attention from them and at the same time basks in the limelight that he so pathologically desires it trumps all reasoning on any issue.

Either that or McCain is threatening the GOPe to jump to the Rats if he doesn’t get his way.

Nothing like having your facts nailed down when you are making an argument, right Juan?

Maybe it was on Hannity, or maybe Huckabee.

Or maybe CNN or MSNBC or Al-Jazeera.

Maybe he heard it at the Alzheimers Clinic or it could just be the voices in his head again.

Time to put a name tag on him

Given that mark he wears so proudly, I think "Beast worshiping darksider" describes him and the rest of his kind, but that's kinda long for a name tag.

Uh uh. He was born to two american citizens who were in Panama on military orders and was technically a resident in the U.S. Panama Canal Zone (U.S. Territory). I served through my career with a number of officers who were born in various countries and U.S. Territories under the same circumstances and they are american born citizens eligible to run for the office of the presidency.

I’d rather see him stripped of his citizenship and put aboard a ship to anywhere/nowhere ala “The Man Without A Country” by Everett.

He thought picking her would sink him (he was in for Obama from the start). And he was right, but only after prompting behind the scenes attacks on Sarah. His ‘base’ loved her and he wasn’t prepared for that. So he had to sabotage her through the MSM. And SNL.

Only a fool would think that allowing third world refugees into the country could possibly help the party seen as supporting the rich and successful. And only a complete moron would think that third world refugees could help the debt problem.

Sarah, given the opportunity a second time, would you support this evil gnome? Loyalty is certainly an admirable trait. However, there must be a time to cut bait and toss the anchor.

"I saw a guy on “Hannity,” maybe “Huckabee,” and the guy said, “You know, the Chinese are coming across our border, and they are going to commit cyber attacks.”

Is he in denial? I just watched the two DVDs, "They Come To America" and "They Come To America II", and they provide clear evidence that this is occurring constantly and the US Government is just looking the other way!

Why else would they have posted signs on the border, in English, Spanish, AND CHINESE?

From New Republic :

IC: Does it bother you when people say choosing Sarah Palin is your legacy?

JM: No, because I think historians will decide that facts are stubborn things. We were four points down when I chose her and three points up afterwards. She held her own and, some people said, won a debate with the vice president. She did everything I ever wanted. She excited our base in a way I was unable to achieve. And then I watched the shredding and destruction to destroy a good and decent person by the liberal media, beginning with Katie Couric. Not only do I not regret it, but I have probably not seen anyone in American life savaged like she was, particularly by the liberal left.

IC: Do you draw any connection between her outlook and the group of congressional Republicans, Tea Partiers, that you have had trouble with?

JM: No, because I think she had a positive message. A message that we would have less government, lower taxes, less regulation. Many in this group didn’t come to power to get things done. They came to power to keep things from getting done.

IC: But she also accused Obama of “palling around with terrorists.” It wasn’t entirely positive.

JM: Well, if she attacked Obama and Biden, that is fairly standard.

IC: “Palling around with terrorists”?

JM: With all due respect, you never heard about when John Lewis said my campaign was worse than the Birmingham church bombing?9 That may have escaped your attention.

IC: It did. I agree, that is bad.

JM: OK, well, that is what he did, when they orchestrated this “racism” effort against me. Maybe Sarah Palin said “palling around with terrorists,” but the things that were said about me and her were far worse. I’ll never forgive John Lewis.

IC: Did you ever talk to Lewis?

JM: No. I would be glad to show you the press release. But we selectively take something Palin said, and the vice president’s job is to attack, and how many people know about John Lewis? I can show you many other comments. For me to complain about it is a waste of time.


The old boy seems fiercely loyal to Governor Palin. Wonder why?

Giving interviews to TNR can’t be excused by alleging mental retardation. Nor can his “reverse ace” actions which, in light of his current actions, really bespeak a sympathy with the hard left. And worst of all, he is not alone in the GOP, which is painfully obvious.

Lot of odd things happening recently - Christie attacking Rand Paul, which was a disguised attack on the Tea Party, and Ted Cruz being pushed into the fight (on the side of the Tea Party of course).

I don't think Juan McAmnesty is running, but it sure does feel like the RINOs are trying to herd the Conservatives like Rand and Cruz together, and demonize them - Christie using the image of 9/11 victims and trying to blame future terrorist attacks on Conservatives... None of that is a coincidence.
