No it isn't.

JusticeandIndependence: No it isn't.


Sure it is. Obama in office means better ratings. The mouth-breathers need something to be frothed up about.
 
2012-07-02 12:23:05 PM  
In the sense that the continued financial and rating success of his network is depending on Obama continuing to be the Most Liberal/Socialist/Communist/Fascist/Anti-American/Anti-Freedom/Anti-Je sus Omnipotent Inexperienced Empty-Suit Dictator in HISTORY!
 
2012-07-02 12:27:39 PM  
He is probably correct. Stupid people will vote for stupid politicians for the stupidest of reasons. Because of this, Obama is a shoe-in. Idiocracy had begun.
 
2012-07-02 12:28:02 PM  
My money is on Obama too. Doesn't mean I think he is the best man for the job, or that I like him. I just think he is the better politician
 
2012-07-02 12:28:20 PM  
ok asshole, put your money where your mouth is. First instruct your news organizations to start reporting the truth and facts 24/7. Then we can talk about the next steps.
 
2012-07-02 12:31:05 PM  
Murdoch should be pouring money into the Re-Elect Barack Obama PAC(s). 4 more years of outrage and ratings.

Sorry, I did not vote for Biden /Obama. That in and of itself proves your taunt wrong.

Go away or we shall taunt you a second time.

Yikes, and coming from the guy who owns the propaganda arm of the GOP and its reelection effort. Is he conceding that his media empire isn't doing such a good job....?

A shoe-in is something what's sure as eggs is eggs, for all intensive purposes.

You forgot to throw an "Irregardless," somewhere in there their. That would have made it a shoe-inn.

Perhaps I'm reading between the Tweets as it were, but when Rupe says things like "socialism, etc." I kinda get the feeling he's not really personally invested in the ideology. His media empire is, but he personally is not.

^that right there.

If we had a Republican president, and 75% of Congress was Republican... kinda hard to keep the Fox News schtick going.

Just like Lorne Michaels wants a president- Republican or Democrat- with the most personality quirks.

Of course I want Romney to save us from anal rape, etc.

That's the only kind of rape the right believes in. Anything else is just a woman not doing her duty to her husband, amirite?

Republicans think portion control is anti-freedom and would throw your ass in gauntanamo with the rest of the terrorists.

You're farking joking right? Democrates don't regularily talk about censoring things like science, defund public education, or claim that a college education is a bad thing.

Most people are too wise or have to many morals to run for public office. This is why we will always be lead by corrupt idiots.

Murdoch's tweets read like he's composing old-timey telegrams.

US election is referendum on Obama, all else pretty minor STOP

On Romney: Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics STOP

I think the network reflects his beliefs, but he's fully aware that the rhetoric is hyperbolic.

Well, he got his point across, for all intensive purposes.

This November, the libs will make sure their minions tow the line.

Which will give 0bama free reign to enact the librul agenda for the next four years.

You sound concerned.

He knows where his money comes from.
Obviously Fox News is slanted towards the Right. By having the Right all worked up and angry his viewership goes no where but up.
 
2012-07-02 04:15:40 PM  
He likes higher ratings and nothing has brought higher ratings to Fox News than a Muslim Kenyan Usurper President that we need to keep a close eye on.

Obviously. You can't complain about creeping Kenyan Muslim socialism when there's a Republican in the White House.
