  • Jimmy Carter: Glenn Beck And Fox 'Distort The News'

    Business Insider ^ | 11/22/2010 | Glynnis MacNicol
    One sometimes wonders what the Dems would do if they didn't have Fox News to kick around anymore. Former president Jimmy Carter got in on the act this weekend telling Reliable Sources host Howie Kurtz that "Glenn Beck and others on Fox News, I think, have deliberately distorted the news." From the interview (video below): KURTZ: CNN started six months before you left office. Now, of course, cable news is a much bigger operation, three 24-hour channels. And you write in the "Afterward" to your book that, "To gain viewers, these 24-hour news channels have now come to rely on...
  • Selling Stupidity (Idiots listen to Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh and Palin) [Another Doozy!]

    Nolan Chart ^ | October 5, 2010 | Joel S. Hirschhorn
    In trying to understand how so many Americans adore people like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh I have come to this critical understanding: Poorly educated, terribly informed, intellectually deficient and downright stupid people need idols. They feel angry, frustrated, ignored, cheated and disillusioned by so much going on in American society. They find the emotional, political and philosophical rants by talk show, loud mouth celebrities matching and justifying their feelings. Of course, those celebrities work hard to fan the flames of all that unhappiness and discontent, and also perpetuate ignorance. They sell stupidity to gullible dummies,...
  • Gawker Tastelessly Gawks About Suicide of Fox News Employee

    Publius Forum ^ | 07/08/10 | Warner Todd Huston
    The lurid website recently posted a story about the suicide of a Fox News employee that was entirely empty of any real newsworthiness, but did serve as a platform to throw a dig at Fox News. In fact, it seems the only reason that Gawker posted the story at all is to attack Fox News. Exploiting this poor woman’s death and mental anguish just to get a dig at Fox News is over-the-top even for Gawker, but it is the culture our friends on the left have fostered in America today. Featuring a giant Fox News logo, the Gawker...

  • Jon Stewart's Feud With Fox News Heating Up

    04/27/2010 8:05:26 AM PDT · by LottieDah · 105 replies · 4,065+ views
    Jon Stewart, the host of Comedy Central's Daily Show, has been not-so-quietly waging war with Fox News for years -- and recently he's been turning up the heat. His most recent battle with the News Corp. (NWS)-owned network hinged on an airing of Fox & Friends, which two weeks ago asked (more than once) whether the crescent-moon shaped logo that the White House used during a nuclear security summit was some sort of Islamic image. As the New York Times recently reported, Stewart had his staff call the White House to ask just that, and lo and behold, discovered that...

    The Lid/Fox News ^ | 3/26/2010 | The Lid
    At least we know where Barack Obama gets it from. The President has a nasty habit of blaming things on everyone except for himself. During the campaign he always found a campaign worker to blame to cover up his lies (unless of course he was blaming President Bush or his Grandma). Obama's former mentor Jeremiah Wright does the same thing. Yesterday he spoke at Jackson State University and blamed his troubles during the Obama campaign on Fox News and racism and the efforts to stop Obamacare on fox news and Hatred of minorities and the poor (at least he mixes...

    Here's the press release: ...Here are the facts. The direct quotes come from the March 10 broadcast of Fox & Friends. Fox: "Texas board of education begins hearings today on proposed changes to textbooks..." The truth: The State Board of Education today is expected to take a preliminary vote on updated social studies curriculum standards... New social studies textbooks are not scheduled to be selected until 2011. Fox: "So one of the proposed changes is to start history class in the year 1877." The truth: Texas has and always will teach U.S. History from the beginning until present day.... Fox:...

    Anita Dunn may be gone from the White House but her successor feels the same way she did about Fox News. From TVNewser The White House has a new communications director -- Dan Pfeiffer -- but the message is the same when it comes to Fox News Channel. During a video interview today with The New York Times' The Caucus blog, Pfeiffer was clear about the White House position on Fox News: "I have the same view of Fox that Anita [Dunn] had, which is that Fox is not a traditional news organization. They have a point of view. That...
  • Uh-oh: Jon Stewart catches Fox News’ creative editing

    Had CNN spliced footage of a sparsely-attended Capitol Hill rally to discredit the reports of large numbers of attendees to the 9/12 rally in September, conservatives would have rightly howled about media bias. What will conservatives say about Fox News splicing footage of the 9/12 rally into coverage of Michele Bachmann’s otherwise well-attended rally last week? Jon Stewart gives Fox News a well-deserved poke in the eye for fudging the footage, as well as exposing rather clearly its source:

    Add one more soldier to the Left’s war on Fox News: Oscar the Grouch. Last week, in a re-broadcast of an episode that originally aired two years ago, Oscar starts his own news network, GNN (Grouchy News Network). An irate viewer calls in to berate him that the news is not grouchy enough: “I am changing the channel. From now on I am watching ‘Pox’ News. Now there is a trashy news show.” Later , Anderson Cooper from 4th place CNN, guest stars as a reporter for GNN. “Walter Cranky” and “Dan Rather-Not” — Muppets representing real-life liberal news personalities...

    How do you spell hypocrite? Apparently it's J-O-L-I-E as the puff-lipped actress proves by banning Fox News from being permitted to interview her to promote her new role as the wife of martyred reporter Daniel Pearl in the upcoming movie "A Mighty Heart." As Jolie touts press freedom, her newest pet cause, she inexplicably put several restrictions on that very freedom of the press -- and not just against Fox News.

    Just when you thought the New York Times couldn't sink any lower than its chairman Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger ranting how he was sorry America wasn't a socialist and pacifist nation, the money-losing paper manages to surprise you.That's really the only thing you can say after reading Times Arts tv critic Alessandra Stanley's attempt to cast the popular-but-fading Fox show "American Idol" into the 2000 election controversy. Yes, you read that correctly. According to the Times, the reason that teenage girls looove tuning in is because Al Gore didn't beat George W. Bush.The lunacy is just too funny: “Idol,” now...

The Indian-American teen says he'll win, but Simon Cowell says if that happens, he'll quit. Even Paula Abdul, usually the kindest judge, says the buzz surrounding this unlikely contender has "run amok." It started with the Web site, which encourages voters to keep 17-year-old Sanjaya Malakar on the Fox show because his performances -- marked by a weak singing voice that often veers...

    'Ombuddy' talk: Is FoxNews 'ultra' or just 'conservative'? An interesting discussion broke out among my "ombuddies" yesterday. It stemmed from this inquiry from Renaud Gilbert, ombudsman at Maison de Radio Canada. Renaud wrote: We have a reporter who labeled FoxNews as "an ultra-conservative network" in a news bulletin. I had complaints from some people that strongly opposed the use of the word "ULTRA," saying it is a value judgment and not a judgment of fact, and that it has no place in a news bulletin unless it is attributed. Any comments? The ombuddies, including yours truly, almost unanimously agreed with...

    The always modest, always charming Howell Raines, executive editor of the New York Times, has a new autobiography out, “The One that Got Away,” a sequel to his 1993 memoir “Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis.” Dipping into his latest book on his love of fly fishing, we find Raines still rising to the conservative-bashing bait. On page 189, he lets fly with thoughts about liberal bugbear Fox News: “Fox, by its mere existence, undercuts the argument that the public is starved for ‘fair’ news, and not just because Fox shills for the Republican Party and panders to the latest...

    For all of us at this "small newspaper in South Texas" or as the host of MSNBC's "The Situation" Tucker Carlson says "podunk paper," it's enlightening — and sometimes embarrassing — to look at our big brothers and sisters in the national media on a story we each are covering. The first step we could all see coming. Someone should have given White House press secretary Scott McClellan a blindfold as he stood at the podium Monday afternoon. The White House press corps spent the previous day stewing about how the White House had failed to deliver a press conference...
