In order for that to make any sense, the Fox News exec is basically saying that the internal workings of the company are such a mess that a few workers can redirect the resources and time necessary to make that ad and air it without senior management knowing anything about it.

When HotAir.com is questioning whether you should have run the piece, maybe you shouldn't have run the piece...
 
2012-05-31 09:16:02 AM
Why is this even news at this point? Does anyone out there not already know full well what Fox News is all about?
 
2012-05-31 09:16:59 AM
This plays into my theory that Fox & Friends is basically where Fox News stashes the useful idiots. I used to wonder if they were feigning idiocy, but now I think they're genuinely stupid.

It's funny, when I was a kid in the '80s, Real Americans mocked the Evil USSR for its propaganda machine.

Yet these same Real Americans lap it up like hungry kittens when it fits what they want to believe.

Ooo Fox News, give me more!!! MORE!!

Does it even matter at this point? Objective people already know damn well that Fox is %1000 biased and nothing more than a right wing noise machine. Faxtards on the other hand will never in a million years understand why "news" organizations should not be doing this. They will never grasp the idea that it totally undermines the entire organizations credibility. They will call it fair and balanced because liberal media derp derp derp.

Yes, I'm sure they were producing a similar hit piece on Romney.

A similar Romney piece on Morning Joe would never happen. Fox and Friends is just the propaganda arm of the GOP and Christian fundies.

Think of how many new jobs could created with money like that. Instead most of that money will simply move from the pocket of one rich guy to another.

That was kinda sorta where I was going with my snark. "We can't hire people without more tax breaks. Do you know how much it costs to bust public unions, suppress voting and fix elections?"

Oh, sure! That's easy! He's a commienist. He's a sekrit muslin. He's a peacenik who practises appeasement towards our enemies. And...um...

Shoot. I know this one.

I'd say the odds are pretty high.

I could get that Murdoch wouldn't know what with him being investigated by the Brits, but the exec in the article is basically saying he's really shiatty at his job since he has no idea what his underlings are up to.

3. His wife is black
4. Ware Birf certificate?

The interesting question is whether this breaches any FEC or FCC policies, such that one or the other will take some official action.

Sorry, Fartbama has the only known time machine, and he's playing havoc with the space-time continuum trying to make it look like he was born in Amercia.

Seems plausible, in light of Murdoch telling Parliament that he has no idea how his business is run.

But yeah, open propaganda season has officially launched over at fox.

I recall our president being taken to task for plainly stating that it's not a news organization.

It was an associate producer. That's not just "some guy".
 
2012-05-31 11:07:13 AM
My favorite part about that four minute add is that it tries to prove that the public can no longer get excited about Obama by showing a "2008" shot of a packed stadium with the crowd going wild. Unfortunately, the editor chose a shot from 2012 of a packed stadium with the crowd going wild to illustrate the point.

FOX seems to have a problem with stock footage.

HotAir.com criticizing Fox News is like Slobodan Milošević walking up to Pol Pot and saying: "I think that you're being a little bit extreme."
 
2012-05-31 11:17:13 AM
Even fox news is running stuff against Obama? Libs must be sick of Dear Leader.
