Bozell & Graham Column: Jimmy Fallon, Democrat Political Asset
NewsBusters ^ | February 21, 2014 | 11:40 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham

Posted on 02/21/2014 10:33:01 AM PST by F15Eagle

The Obamas have had few more obsequious media allies than NBC's Jimmy Fallon. Now that he's taking over the hallowed ground of "The Tonight Show," Fallon's proven ability to spread his reach into viral videos on YouTube promises to become even more politically potent.

Fallon's Obama-friendly sketches and interviews have become immediate "news" grist for the Comcast corps at NBC and MSNBC. The same sensation happens when Fallon is ripping into a Republican.

Just as NBC and MSNBC were tearing Gov. Chris Christie apart over "Bridgegate," Fallon joined this political crusade by bringing on liberal rock star Bruce Springsteen for a jokey version of the hit "Born to Run."

Fallon and Springsteen sang clumsy lyrics that Christie was "killing the working man who is stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam." The YouTube video went viral, while the media played it up as another nail in the coffin they were building for Christie's career.

The NBC press agents are trying to paper over Fallon's political tilt. A Parade Magazine profile on Feb. 16 oozed that Fallon "persuaded Brad Pitt to yodel, President Obama and Mitt Romney to 'slow jam the news,' and Tom Cruise to crack raw eggs on his noggin." But why pretend?

Jimmy Fallon has been a political shill from day one of him getting "Late Night". His band was not an accident. Neither was Jay Leno giving him a Democrat set-up with his last "Tonight" show "featuring" BHO and Oprah.

There is nothing less than a political coup by mindless liberals who are using every form they have access to the foist this nonsense upon the public.

If you thought any part of "The Tonight Show" was conservative, you haven't been paying attention.

BTW, the article appears to be pro-Chris Christie.

For the record, I am against Chris Christie so this is posted to be about Fallon; not to promote Christie.

No surprise here. One doesn't ascend to his level these days without fellating the Hollywood Left.

Used to watch Leno but will not watch Fallon, especially after that horrible skit last night with the big MO and Will Farrell. I have no idea why anyone was laughing.

Yep, because he was even more left-leaning. I saw his first couple shows after he took over from Conan. It was O-O-O-O-Obama all the time.

Gotta admit, I was too young to watch him but I did watch a lot of Caron. He seems like a right-winger compared to Leno and Fallon. Leno wavered but he was sucking up to Obama pretty good at the beginning, taking shots at Palin. I stopped watching, unless ‘Headlines’ was on and then I switched after that.

Fallon teamed up with Queen Latifah for a movie before he started his late-night stuff. If I had any doubt, his pathetic, and I do mean pathetic, pandering to O was obvious those first couple days.

He should have been selling “collectible plates” and tingling with Chrissy Matthews.

It’s just not fair.

At least with Jay Leno, he was a good American, somewhat conservative and was critical of Obama.

This Fallon fellow appears to be on an Overt Mission to prop up Obama and destroy Republicans.

Not only should there a Conservative Boycott of The Tonight Show, but a boycott of NBC and the show’s sponsors.

Kudos to Brent Bozell for bringing another media injustice to light.

~~~and was critical of Obama.~~~

Watch the years 2008 forward (ahem) and his PDS. He was part of selling this guy to the masses.

And all you have to do is look at his line-up for the last show. That’s all you need to know regarding it.

Oprah, Kardashian, and a taped message from Obama, pretending it was all in fun.

I don’t think many will watch. Especially once the find out how lame Fallon is, in reality, with stand-up. He is simply not funny.

I’ll give that Leno could be funny, if he wasn’t on conservatives. “Jaywalking” and “Headlines” were very good, usually.

Fallon is about as funny as root canal. He’s on the Universal tram tour, he’s horrible and I can’t even go on that ride. I thought whoopie was bad. And yes he is just another omomba colostomy bag.

I turned it on for three minutes after the Olympics last night. Utter crapola, including our illustrious “first lady” who was a parody of herself— as always.

That’s the last three minutes I’ll ever waste with the Tonight show. Fallon can Falloff as far as I’m concerned.

It was just state propaganda disguised as “entertainment”.

I wasn’t a huge fan of Leno, although I liked his “headlines.” At least Leno would poke fun at the regime, something Letterman would not do. Letterman is a regime moutpiece, and I won’t watch him. Fallon, though, goes to a whole creepy new level of 0bama worship. It’s almost like watching the old Soviet propaganda about Joseph Stalin.

I’m wondering when Fallon will do a musical skit called “Ode to 0bama.”

Yes and it was far more entertaining.

Fallon is as entertaining as KO, or perhaps Geraldo Rivera.

Or tuning into state propaganda by Tokyo Rose during WWII.

'Zactly. Up here, we had for far too many years on the CBC, a 'show' called This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Basically, it was a bunch of socialist from our centre of welfare recipients, Newfoundland, attacking anything that was conservative while drooling over any utterance by a Liberal or NDPer. Truly nauseating. With good reason, I cancelled my cable last year.

In 2011, Fallon had Sen. Michele Bachmann as a guest and she was introduced with a song by Fishbone called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.”
