They’ll Say Anything To Go After FOX

The Alinksy radicals in the White House have worked hard to marginalize FOX News. The Whote House picked a fight with FOX and declared it was not a real news organization. In a piece at Salon, former Obama economic adviser Robert Reich wrote:

In December 1994, Bill Clinton proposed a so-called middle-class bill of rights including more tax credits for families with children, expanded retirement accounts, and tax-deductible college tuition. Clinton had lost his battle for healthcare reform. Even worse, by that time the Dems had lost the House and Senate. Washington was riding a huge anti-incumbent wave. Right-wing populists were the ascendancy, with Newt Gingrich and Fox News leading the charge. Bill Clinton thought it desperately important to assure Americans he was on their side. Big Journalism

The problem with this statement is that FOX News did not exist in 1994.

The radicals will do and say anything to marginalize those seen as the enemy to their agenda. But FOX has the last laugh:

    Of course isn’t a real news organization. They are the propaganda arm of the republican political organization. It’s not even close.

    “2009: A year of Fox News political activism

    With the inauguration of President Obama in 2009, Fox News transformed itself from a conservative media outlet into a partisan, right-wing political organization that openly viewed itself as the “voice of the opposition.” Throughout the year, Fox News has declared war on the Obama administration, the Democratic Congress, and progressive organizations by, among other things, campaigning for the firing of various administration officials, partnering with conservative groups and politicians to oppose progressive policies, and even allowing its own contributors to fundraise on-air for conservative political causes.”

    Thirty specific categories examined here.

    Fox News’ year in apologies: fake videos, false info, cutting and pasting from GOP.

    “Every day for the past five years, our researchers have monitored Fox News and debunked countless instances of misinformation. However, what they have witnessed over the past several months is both new and deeply disturbing. In that time, Fox News has, among other things:

    • Compared the President of the United States, members of Congress and progressive leaders to Nazis and genocidal dictators such as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong;

    • Referred to President Barack Obama as a racist who has a “deep seeded hatred for white people”;

    • Repeated calls for revolution in the supposed defense of liberty;

    • Simulated the assassination of Speaker Nancy Pelosi on air;

    • Routinely insinuated that the Obama administration and Democratic Congress are destroying the United States as we know it.

    More:

    “Fox News is not a news operation. It now comprises all of the elements of a political campaign, including organizing, explicitly partisan advocacy, (highly dubious) opposition research, War Room-style attack communications and even fundraising for the Republican Party and the conservative movement.”

      Of course this is complete BS.

      The WH says MSNBC and CNN are real news organizations. They (along with the MSM) are part of the administration. They are the media wing of the Democrat party. Keith Olberdouche wants to sleep with Obama and Matthews has orgasms when he speaks.

        Yeah, that’s why ALL OF THEM have more republicans on than democrats.

        Again, I bring facts, you bring the BS:

        “If It’s Sunday, It’s Conservative: An analysis of the Sunday talk show guests on ABC, CBS, and NBC, 1997 – 2005” Link

        “Lawmaker Appearances On Cable News 1/26-1/28” Link

        Chart here.

        “In every year examined by the study — 1997 – 2005 — more panels tilted right (a greater number of Republicans/conservatives than Democrats/progressives) than tilted left. In some years, there were two, three, or even four times as many right-titled panels as left-tilted panels.”

        Your side cheats and stacks the game, and that’s still not good enough for you.

        • Blake says:

          OUR side cheats? This from an ACORN lover, the same people who register voters 75 times?
          Cheat? Really?
          That is the best joke I have heard in some time D- did a goat tell you that one?

      • Adam says:

        Fox gets ratings the same way that people can’t help but look at a car crash. They don’t want to see but yet they can’t look away!

    • Blake says:

      Actually, what you say about what Fox has had to say, is said by editorial and opinion commentators- not the news part of Fox- nevertheless, the talking points you have pointed out are true, and it is my belief that Barry is trying to destroy this country.
      It has to be intentional, because he could not be this STUPID and survive without the “special” helmet.
      I do think he has a hatred of White people, and this speaks to his abandonment issues with his promiscuous mother, and admittedly “racist” grandparents.
