Sigh.. I don't know how anyone at FOX can look at themselves in the mirror without wanting to punch themselves in the face. I want to go to a carnival where each booth houses a different FOX personality/anchor/producer. At the front of the booth, you're allowed to select from an array of heavy everyday objects (stapler, medicine ball, dust buster, etc), which you can then throw at them from a challenging yet fair distance for the chance to win a fun prize.

The fun prize, of course, being hitting a FOX personality/anchor/producer in the face with a heavy everyday object.

If there's a war on salt, I'm on salt's side.

You know what happens when you sow your enemies' crops with broccoli or kale? It might make 'em mad but it sure won't make 'em starve.

Salt FTW.

They're not that insane, sadly they're that smart. They're smart enough to know how much money and influence is to be had by both scaring and infuriating an easily led, but not inconsequential portion of the electorate.

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and passes a flurry of laws across many states abrogating women's rights, it's a GOP-led war on women.

Lionel Mandrake: I'm so fkn sick of the "war on X" meme


No one whores out the "War on X" meme more than Fox. Outside of that newsphere, we have a war on poverty, war on (some) drugs, and I guess now a war on women because it really does feel like a concerted, multi-front attack on substantial human rights for women.

So if you want someone to blame for it, you have your usual suspects.

Now, regarding this Daily Show clip, I seriously want to know:

HOW DO THEY DO THIS? ...this is the sort of awesome editing that won them a bazillion Emmys and Peabodys. And it must be some sort of secret, because why can't the other news channels do anything this slick? The Daily Show must have one hell of a crack video transacting/database team. The amount of sifting and editing and searching and databasing they gotta do to come up with clips like that is astounding.

I have to believe that they must have been compiling this segment for several weeks. There's just no way they could have cobbled that much footage together in just a few hours while writing jokes throughout. Maybe that's what they do whenever the show goes on hiatus for a week, or maybe on Fridays: Compile, sort, catalogue and stenographize 24h news video for quick retrieval should they need it.

Does anyone have an inside scoop on how their magic video editing ninja skills work?

It's not just FOX unfortunately. Those clips were all from cable news outlets, whose job it is to manufacture outrage on both sides (mostly conservative, but both) for fun and profit. Cable news has single-handedly dumbed down the national debate on real issues, and elevated bullshiat issues like whether or not a school in California bans poinsettas. For the record, I think that's pretty stupid, but it doesn't rise to the level of spittling outrage expressed on cable news.

I hate cable with every fiber of my being.
