    Let's Hear it for Fox News

    In all the smug blather about how the Fox News media wonks and pundits were melting down before the video feeds [meaning that one or two of them actually displayed puzzlement or a raised eyebrow during the event] there is an important aspect that totally zipped past the minimal intellectual capacity of the average gloating leftwinger . . . which is that EVERYONE was watching Fox News for the best and most accurate election coverage the other night and especially all the leftwing pundits and journalists who were not actually themselves standing before live video feeds.

    Specifically I am referring to live tweeting of the election night coverage. I was following the tweeter feeds of both leftwing and rightwing media personalities who were not themselves standing before camera lenses. Almost none of them were watching CNN or the traditional broadcast networks as first the exit polling began coming in and then actually voting tallies followed. Nineteenths of them were . . . getting their minute by minute coverage of events -- which they then tweeted -- from Fox News, which they always referenced in their tweeted reports or opinions.

    So there you have it Fox News . . . although none of them will officially admit it, even leftwing journalists and pundits now consider your output to be the most efficient and [heh] fair and balanced.

    So it goes.

    So, how long will it be before they're shut down? The liberals have already called for the FCC to do just that. How long before conservative commentators are banned from the airwaves as bullies? That's been called for, too. Not liberal commentators and not MSNBC. No, they're good respected and important sources of information. Dan Savage isn't a bully and neither are President Obama, Sen. Reid, and Rep. Pelosi. Lody, no.

    Tuesday night, for the first time in my adult like I was ashamed of the U.S.

    That's an interesting issue. As you recall our soon to be re-anointed Narcissist-in-Chief did try to get Fox News banned from his first term press conferences because they kept asking him non-softball lobbed questions and then insisted on a direct follow-up whenever he fobbed them off with a smirk or a joke or talked about something else instead. The amazing thing is that the rest of the media outlets [pretty much all leftwing] went ballistic on Obama, because even they were capable of understanding that if he went after Fox and froze them out then one of their own media outlets could be next.

    In order for the FCC to succeed in damaging Fox news the Republicans would have had to lose House of Representative dominance and that did not happen . . . not this time around anyway.

    Like a lot of things, the actual level of safety in most parts of Mexico is a great deal higher than the media leads you to believe.

    Cool Fox News Fails To Persuade Enough Suckers To Vote For Romney

    Despite their best efforts, Fox News is the biggest loser this morning, having utterly failed in their crusade to advance the prospects of their primary client, the Republican Party. Their sacred mission of partisan deception was proven to be impotent and ineffective.


    The Fox News campaign effort relied conspicuously on false themes that never took hold outside the confines of the Fox bubble. They accused Obama of going on an “apology tour;” of disparaging small business owners by saying that they didn’t “build that;” of weakening welfare by removing work requirements; of plotting to ship Jeep production to China. None of it was true, and none of it was accepted by a public who is smarter than Fox thinks they are.

    Nevertheless, Fox persisted in forcing their pre-masticated bullshit down the throats of American voters. They featured a parade of Republican politicians and pundits to pound their message into the already mushy brains of their viewers. Among their most brazenly partisan escapades was the broadcast of a four minute anti-Obama campaign-style video that was so egregiously inappropriate that they later pulled it from the air and their web site.


    Wrap all of that into a package that also included a War on Women, an aversion to fact-checkers, and his now-famous Etch-a-Sketching of his prior positions, and you have a recipe for electoral disaster. Not even the unprecedented presence of Super PACS dumping unheard of millions into the GOP effort could rescue Romney from defeat. Although it is heartening to know that folks like Sheldon Adelson, Karl Rove, and the Koch brothers wasted so much money and have nothing to show for it.

    This morning Fox News is scrambling to make excuses for coming up short. However, they refuse to take any responsibility for the electoral outcome. In many ways they seem to refuse to even admit defeat. Every story begins with the observation that the Republicans retained control of the House, and ends by saying that the losses were not the fault of the conservative agenda, but the strength of a powerful Obama campaign team and the bias on all the other media outlets.

    http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/?p=8377


    When President Obama delivered his Right-Cross; The Fox Noise Machine never saw the punch coming. I'm sure Fox will some day wake-up from it's coma, but will they be any smarter is the real question.

    “Conservatism is the fear that somewhere, somehow, someone you think is your inferior is being treated as your equal"
