Fox News goes all out fair and balanced on Barack Obama

A Fox News contributor, Liz Trotta, apparently thinks we would all be better off if both Osama Bin Laden and Barack Obama were dead. She wished “both of them” were dead on live TV on May 25th.

This is, of course, a somewhat expected escalation of the “fair and balanced” reporting from Fox News. Day in and day out they demonize their “opponents” with nastiness not seen in network TV before.

You gotta wonder what happens to individuals advocating assassinating presidential candidates. At Fox News…probably a promotion and a raise.


Scientific proof that Bill O’Reilly is an asshole

Indiana University media researchers have concluded a study into Bill O’Reilly’s ranting on TV. They’ve analyzed 115 episodes of his TV shows on the Fox News channel. I would feel sorry for them having to have gone through that traumatic experience if it weren’t for the awesome results of their study.

They found dear Bill uses a derogatory name once every 6.8 seconds, and that he’s frequently and consistently using known propaganda devices in his speech. He’s using fear prominently to back his insane arguments.

He’s also consistently and with no exception labeling foreigners in a negative light.

It’s no news to anyone, of course, that he is a xenophobic racist asshole. It’s just good to have scientific evidence of it.

A PDF publication of the study results can be found on the Indiana University website.


Jack Thompson lies on national TV

Kotaku.com editor Brian Crecente has posted the video of Jack Thompsons appearance on Fox News yesterday just hours after the shooting at Virginia Tech.

He goes one step further than just posting the video though. He completely and utterly destroys all “arguments” Jack Thompson made during the appearance. There wasn’t a word of truth to anything he said on TV yesterday.

Facts can be a bitch, right Jackhole?

One would hope, however, that the mass media outlets would at least once actually get someone who’s not a habitual, self-serving liar to comment with or instead of Jack Thompson. How about it Fox News?


Jack Thompson blames video games for Virginia Tech shooting

Jack Thompson, the ambulance chaser extraordinaire, has done it again.

Gaming blog Kotaku.com reports that hours after the Virginia Tech shooting that left 30+ students dead, Jack Thompson somehow has managed to search the shooter’s apartment, talk to his friends or just plain old see the future. All this before the police even had the identity of the shooter figured out, mind you. And all this before anything about the shooter has appeared on the news.

He’s claiming on Fox News (who else) the shooting was caused by video games. Nice work scumbag. Just as nice work from Fox News. Whatever are you going to air next? Maybe David Duke commenting on the significance of Jackie Robinson to American history?

Those of us who are familiar with Jack Thompson’s modus operandi saw this coming the minute the news about the shooting hit the news. Jack Thompson is just playing a pretty standard number’s game. He’s really a statistician at heart.

He’s made a career out of blaming popular culture for all the evils of today’s world. But he doesn’t pick his targets at random, he works quite methodologically and definitely has studied the famous S-curve phenomenom. He’s always chasing it, and always, always attacks something that’s just made it into the mainstream and is repeatedly in the news. He’s just maximizing his profits. It’s a smart move from an ego-whore like himself.

In the 80s it was about rap music. When that became passe he picked another target, video games. When it becomes old, he’ll pick something else. It’s guaranteed.

By picking targets popular enough he knows at any given time a certain percentage of Americans are enjoying doing whatever he’s attacking. The more popular, the better his chances of capitalizing on blaming his target for anything under the sun. Think about it. What young adult these days has never played video games? The number is fast approaching zero. And Jack Thompson knows it.

What surprises me is how none of the massmedia outlets haven’t caught up to his game yet. It’s so obvious even a moron should get it.

Video games did it. Sure.


Hate and Hypocrisy – The Right Way of doing politics

John Edwards is a “faggot” [1], Al Gore is “a total fag” [2], Barack Obama is hunted in Pakistan [3] and cheating is ok in the Speaker’s house, but not in the White House [4].

So those would be examples of compassionate conservatism and family values, eh?

Let’s just leave it at that, no other comment is really necessary.

2. Coulter on Gore at MediaMatters.org
3. Fox News chief on Obama at Huffington Post
4. MSNBC on Newt Gingrich

You probably didn’t know Mark Foley was a Democrat

So Fox News reports on the Mark Foley scandal, and runs a ticker underneath stating Mark Foley is D-FL.

Malicious mudslinging or a revelation of the subconscious of Fox News producers? Who knows.

They claim that it was a honest mistake, of course. But how on earth could you make a mistake about that? It’s IMPOSSIBLE to not know he’s a Republican.


Once a dick, always a dick

Looks like Bill O’Reilly is in some serious trouble now. Sexually harassing a coworker, who had the presence of mind to record some of the conversations is not a particularly bright idea, but then when was Bill ever the bright one to being with?

Fair? I don’t think so. Balanced? Yeah right.
