    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.
    Perhaps it hasn't crossed your mind that that had no need to watch CNN and the traditional broadcast networks because they were all aware of the circumstances and were interested to watch FOX News in meltdown. And it seems they got it right, what with FOX predicting a win for Romney in Ohio.

    It you want accuracy then FOX isn't the place to be.

    Gosh no . . . that would never cross my mind because I have only been on political chatrooms for seventeen years now, reading both leftwing and rightwing sources all the time. Sheesh!

    In reality in the early going most of those leftwing tweets from journalists, professional operatives and pundits were nervous in nature and they were referencing Fox News instead of their own organizations to discover what was actually happening as it unfolded. Now you know.

    I now know your version of 17 years in political chat rooms, inasmuch as you appear to believe what's there instead of checking various valid sources. Good for you! That you prefer to remain in the dark, like many other Republicans can only be of benefit to the Democrats who are now probably beginning work on winning the 2016 election.

    What are the party members of the GOP doing this year?

    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.

    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.

    Cigar, I am disapointed in you, there was no picture with this one. Ha ha thanks for the read anyways. Can't say that I buy it but thanks for sharing.

    Obama's victory was not a land slide he won the popular vote by two million and is at 303 electoral votes (Florida is still a debacle). This was not a crushing defeat. He won by ~2 percent, this proves nothing about Fox reporting. If anything it shows how divided America is on the issues.

    Now let me ask a question to you Fox news haters, again no sarcasm, when was the last negative story done on Pres Obama by MSNBC, CNN, ABC or CBS. Just as I believe no one human is 100 percent bad I do not believe any one human (save one) is 100 percent good.


    Given the fact that Presidents in office have the upper hand in an election, (my assumption based of the number of two term presidents in the last 30 years), I would say the lefties should be looking at this as a Pyrrhic victory.

    The GOP is stopping socialism from taking over America by controling the house.

    My top 2 reasons for watching Fox News:


    Megyn Kelly. She's a 6 on my Klydesdale scale.






    Andrea Tantaros. She's an 8 on my Klydesdale scale.

    No matter how you slice it, Obama barely got re-elected and he certainly has got nothing near a mandate.

    Given the fact that Presidents in office have the upper hand in an election, (my assumption based of the number of two term presidents in the last 30 years), I would say the lefties should be looking at this as a Pyrrhic victory.
    Precisely correct. I'm not much of a statistics wonk because I find people more interesting but here are a few numbers for consideration. Ten million fewer people voted for Obama this time around than in 2008. Three million fewer people voted for Romney than voted for McCain in 2008. The Left squeaked by because they were marginally better at getting warm bodies to the voting stations than the Right.

    It's a matter of philosophy. The Right has always considered it up to an individual calling him or herself a Republican to get off their rump and go vote on election day. The Left simply goes out and rounds everyone up capable of breathing and drive them to the voting station. As fate would have it Romney lost by something like 2 million and 8 hundred thousand votes . . . or pretty much the same number as got off their cans and voted for John McCain in 2008. There's a whole heap of irony in that.
