Unequivocal Proof that Fox News Sucks

Your morning joe with a message of hope and change

For all the union members screaming “Fox lies” during the Wisconsin protests… for President Obama insisting that Fox News is “destructive” for our country’s growth, and his administration attempting to de-legitimize them as a news organization by barring them from news conferences… for every logic-impaired idiot who has never actually watched Fox News but KNOWS that they aren’t journalists… here’s the proof that you’re right: screenshots of the two main cable news sites taken virtually at the same time. If a picture tells a thousand words, these two pictures should speak volumes:



See? You were right! Fox News DOES suck, because – what real American journalists would concern themselves with devastating tornadoes in those yucky Bible belt states, when we can talk about a royal wedding on the other side of the world?

I have long suspected that a good part of the asinine “royal worship” in this country is frustrated leftists who desperately long to just pronounce themselves royalty, collect taxes from the rest of us, and wave regally from on high as we bow before them (*coughObamacough*). Leftists imagine themselves as part of the elite inner circle of the world, so it’s not at all surprising that their focus is on a pair of their own. (The groom’s daddy, by the way, is an enormous left-leaning tool.)

But I digress. Yeah. Fox News is so biased and if you watch it you’re a drooling moron and you’ll never understand How Things Really Are because Fox News lies? And did I mention, Fox lies?

At the site where this CNN/Fox comparison was displayed, there was a bracing discussion from a group of intellectual giants debating why Fox News, which is clearly not really a news organization, would have covered the tornadoes while CNN concentrated on inbred monarchy types. Allow me to share just a tiny nugget of this incisive analysis:

“(Fox is) not exercising journalistic professionalism; they’re showing a news story that they think more people will want to see. I’d imagine Fox’s target audience is more rural and midwestern on average, and this story probably hits closer to home for them. It’s all about the money, yo.”

This story hits closer to home for them? Where do YOU live, “yo”? Unless it’s in Wales or Scotland, I daresay this story should hit closer to your home, too. In fact, I kind of wish this story had actually hit your home. Oops! Violent rhetoric. Allow me to retract that statement. Although speaking of hateful rhetoric… I stand in awe of a true master of the art, writing in the same discussion thread (profanity is masked for your reading safety):

“Fox is still f***ing retarded. The devastation is known, and talking about it isn’t it going to change anything. They’re called acts of nature/god for a reason, and the bible-belt is getting hit by storms that wouldn’t be as bad if the imbeciles living there hadn’t fought so damned hard against preventing climate-change.Yeah, I said it. We all know it’s true, and the fact that people are dead shouldn’t dissuade anyone from holding this up as evidence of their stupidity and backwards thinking. What better time than now, when we can see that people are actually being killed by the extreme weather caused by global anthropogenic climate change? But Fox won’t cover that aspect of it, even though CNN has. Fox will, however, talk about all the prayer groups being held to ask a f***ing MYTHICAL SKY WIZARD to stop the tornadoes. In the BIBLE BELT. Where almost everyone is a Christian, even when they don’t believe it (because they get the s**t beat out of them if they don’t act like bible-thumpers). FoxNews: Negative Over 9000, CNN: 0, so it’s still better.”

People like this actually vote, which explains a lot, no? One doesn’t even know where to begin – the seething hatred for Christians (and their mythical sky wizard), the fact that in defiance of all scientific evidence this bitter little hater “knows it’s true” that climate change apparently parked itself over the southern states and let loose, or the journalistic genius of noting that since the tornadoes have already happened, “talking about it isn’t going to change anything.”

The mind boggles. If this doesn’t inspire you to pray (hard) for this country, I don’t know what would.

But I digress again. If any of these mental midgets could actually find the Fox News Channel on their remote, they could watch the only television news outlet where you are likely to hear a variety of views on virtually every topic. Yes, many of the commentators make their opinions clearly known. (As opposed to the Katie Courics and Dan Rathers of the world, who make their opinions clearly known while insisting that they’re objective and neutral.) But Fox News as a pure news organization is excelling, because they are not manipulating virtually all coverage to hew to the leftist party line. (For a concise example of how this type of manipulation works, see this brief deconstruction of a CNN story).

A picture tells a thousand words. Two pictures can speak volumes.

    I don't know if you're following the NDP Leader Jack Layton's exposure of being caught naked in a massage parlour yesterday and the story being run by SunTV (what the rest of our liberal media has been blasting and fear mongering as Fox News North for months before they began broadcasting a couple of weeks ago) but every other MSM here in Canada has avoided the facts of the story and made it a "smear" campaign by SunTV.

    It's very similar to the failed attacks on Fox News in the states, because the just like in the US, Canadians are getting tired of the biased reporting from the entrenched media and the filtered message they spoon feed us everyday. No one is fooled.

    I expect a very similar comparison will be made between SunTV and our other main outlets in the near future as you have done here with Fox.

      Our clear thinking cousins in the North will gain in strength and influence when there
      is and open forum for debate and information without propaganda. Good luck K-K with
      media improvement……………………………………………..William

    If there were more royal knots being tied, the Left might fall into believing that war, harsh weather, illness and poverty have been vanquished, and hence, not try to detach the rest of us from our wealth.

    "…a good part of the asinine “royal worship” in this country is frustrated leftists who desperately long to just pronounce themselves royalty…"

    Well said. I have long felt that the socialist/communist/fascist/progressives of today are the direct intellectual descendants of the Loyalists of old. The people of today who support centralized government control over private citizens are no different from those people who affirmed the Divine Right of Kings. They all are willing to surrender their freedoms and the freedoms of others to some despot in the hope that the person or persons they hand power over to will be a benevolent lord and master.

    That being said I have to note that I have been more than a little annoyed at FNC's own excessive coverage (IMO) of the royal knot tying. I didn't care when Chuck married Di back in the 80s and I don't care about Bill and Kate getting hitched either. Enough already!

    Of course if there are tornadoes in Spring it must be due to global warming, man-made global warming that is. Likewise if it rains in April it's due to global warming; and if flowers bloom in May, and if the leaves fall in well, fall, it's because of man-made global warming. When the snow flies and hurricanes blow it is only due to man-made global warming. Of course if none of these things occur that too is because of man-made global warming. Not a bad way to set up one's religion I must say; no matter what does or does not happen, it is all because of what the religion says. Nice!

      Exactly! As for FNC's excessive coverage of the royal nonsense, I am in total agreement with you. They spent far too much time on it, as well, in my opinion.

      Hoosier, you hit on something that I have been saying for years, when you scratch a liberal, you find a closet aristocrat.

      Personally I think they should be called what they are. Pseudo-Neo-Aristocrats, personally I like Americans of the Socialist Persuasion or ASP for short, because, like the deadly pit viper, they are small and deadly poisonous to everyone else's liberty.

    How bad is Fox News when Bill O'Reily is considered the most tolerable person who can interview President Obama?

    • May 1, 2011

      You're right, O'Reilly is so dumb, he is ignorant of his ignorance which is the milady of the ignorant. What an arrogant fool he is. Obama/Oreilly interview was the lowest point in American history. Just what have we become as a nation?
      Hannity and Kilmeade don't have an original thought in their heads. Maccallum displays a remarkable lack of knowledge and education. Smith and van Susteren are lefties. Doocy, Carlson, Kelly, Cavutu, Gutfield and Beck are great and I would never watch the other networks except for The Larry Kudlow Show on CNBC which is the best Show on TV by far.

    I find it kinda hard to continue to support FOX when they say Obama’s long form is proof that he was born in Kenya. The Washington Post was interviewed and say it is a complete forgery and are demanding Congressional and FBI investigations. They say it is a bigger story than Watergate.

    Meanwhile Fox has started toting the Obamaline .. All you had to do was get the original document that they released, the PDF file. Look at it on Adobe at 600X to see that the registration number was tampered with. All of the number is solid black, except the last number which is pixel city ion color.
    Not to mention the rest of the document. All kinds of people coming out saying it is a forgery of the lowest quality and Fox says it is authentic?

    Meanwhile, we have someone who obviously usurped the presidency of the United States and the liberals are going nuts so happy that this is energizing their base. The White House puts out a forgery as evidence of being able to hold the highest office in the land and Fox is telling us to believe …

    The sarcastic title threw me off as it would anyone; however, that discussion of the magic sky king fooled me at first, too. I thought it was also sarcasm.

    Incidentally, Liberals love of the monarchy is not unexplainable. Liberals derive themselves from Marx and when Marx got drunk with someone called Techow, Marx revealed that he cared nothing for the workers and did not respect anybody except the aristocrats. He also sneered at those who follow his Commie platitudes

    I giot no satisfaction from watching, or even knowing there was so much coverage of this wedding on TV period. WHY? Because I am of mostly as most "IDIOTS" say in this country—[I AM OF NATIVE HERITAGE]-And it made me sick to see. To me there is no royalty outside of Heaven Above. That said, we as people are allowed to watch what we want to and make "OUR" own minds up as to it's ability to tell us the truth. I watch FoxNews BECAUSE THEY WILL GIVE ME BOTH SIDES OF A ISSUE, AND TELL ME TO MAKE MY OWN CONCLUSIONS. THE OTHER MORONS DO NOT DO THAT, AND THAT MAKES ME SICK. So to me things are as clear as a bell. ALSO WANTED EVERYONE TO KNOW SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT WITH REGARDS TO THIS NATION-[AMERICA]-THAT IS THAT GOD IS NOT DONE WITH HER JUST YET.

    In reference to my previous post:__>>>>>We drank first port, then claret, that is to say, red Bordeaux, then champagne. After the red wine he was completely drunk. And that was what I wished because then he [Karl Marx] would open his heart and reveal himself as he really was. I gained certainty about things that previously had been mere suspicions. Despite his condition, he dominated the discussion right to the very end

    .__…I am conviced that everything good in him [Marx] has been devoured by the most dangerous personal ambitions. He laughs at the fools who repeat after him his proletarian catechism, just as he laughs at communists of the Willich sort, and also at the bourgeoisie."

    __The only ones that he respects are the aristocrats, the real ones, the ones who are conscious of their position. To wrest power from them, he needs..the proletariat and this is the reason he has created his system. I left with the impression that personal domination is the end-all of his every activity.1<<<<<<<<

    Socialism is the feudalism of the future.

    Are you really claiming that CNN didn’t cover the disastrous weather in the South while Fox did? Are you saying that all that coverage that I watched on CNN really didn’t happen?

    Ok, you don’t care about the British royal family – we get that. Click the button and go over to the coverage that you want to see instead of whining like some schoolgirl. CNN is a big company, they cover lots of stories, too bad if what you want to see isn’t on the front page the instant you log in.

    Just wait for that blogger who referred to the "Mythical Sky Wizard", to meet HIM on that Day.He will not like it very much.

    Alright I dislike Fox News and find it awful. That said, this was just a terrible review. Your argument was based on other comments filled with ignorant blasphemous crap and then proceeding to say that they vote. Your other point was findin creative ways to say they’re stupid. Those are not very educated reasons for bunking a national news station. I agree with your overall view but I would suggest you work on your opinionated writing skills. Much love.
