Damn. We haven't even gone to the polls yet and already the Fool's News Network is spinning why Mittens lost the election.

pot meet kettle.

Though to be fair without Fox *cough* "news" *cough* we wouldn't have gotten the hilarious cavalcade of weapons grade retards to point and laugh at during the GOP primary.

In order to stay on pace the next GOP primary will consist of Cletis from the Simpsons a guy named Larry, his brother Darrell, his other brother Darell and every redneck ever interviewed for the evening news after a 'twister dun gone through his trailer park.

If this is an indication of what's to come, DERPCON 1 will be reached in about T minus potato hours. Nuclear butthurt can almost certainly be expected, so be sure to stock up on Preperation H if you, or anyone you know has severe conservative leanings. Wherever possible, take shelter and cover your eyes and ears to protect yourself from the expected category 5 herpicanes and derpquakes along party fault lines. Do not, I repeat do not engage with defeated political adversaries, they're probably experiencing a nauseating time-space jetlag from the GOP reality merging with actual reality, which has a well-known liberal bias. If you detect symptoms like blaming the President for a weather phenomena or accusations that somehow the President travelled through time to steal the election, then please escort him/her to the nearest library. Stay safe, America.

Dan Gainor is the Boone Pickens Fellow and the Media Research Center's Vice President for Business and Culture

Hmmm, Media Research Center... that sounds unbiased... let's see...

"The Media Research Center Celebrates 25 Years of Fighting Liberal Media Bias!

The Media Research Center is proud to celebrate 25 years of holding the liberal media accountable for shamelessly advancing a left-wing agenda, distorting the truth, and vilifying the conservative movement."

He sounds very concerned!

So this is how they've decided to rationalize Romney's defeat. Makes sense when you think about it. The entire Republican ideology relies on the premise that they are 100% correct about everything while everyone else is 100% incorrect about everything. That being the case, it is impossible for them to lose any debate or election on a level playing field because obviously people will choose the person who is 100% all the time. So when that fails to happen, the only logical explanation is that someone must have cheated, or the media was on their side, or a storm came along at an inopportune time, or whatever other kind of excuse you can pull out of your arse. Because the reason for your candidate's defeat can never, ever be that he or she had the wrong message, or is a complete dick, or promotes policies that a majority of voters reject. No, that simply cannot be, because as we have already established, your candidate is 100% right about everything 100% of the time. There must be some other reason, and someone needs to spread the word about that reason.

And that, in a nut shell, is why Fox News exists in the first place.

Because remember:

11 attacks on our embassies during 8 years of Bush = strong signs of the Bush foreign agenda working and that his leadership will see democracies rise in the Middle East

1 attack in 4 years under Obama = failed foreign policy in every aspect of foreign policy and we look weak to our enemies

Have you ever noticed how much Conservatives absolutely love the exclamation point. Read any "RE: FW: FWD: RE: FW: OMG OBAMA!" email from an old person, or a comment from a "states' rights" advocate on a local news article and see how many exclamation points they shove in there.

Perhaps it has something to do with how their news and commentary is presented: shouted.

Can't believe that, the same company that was behind The Simpsons, and Family Guy, also hosts Fox News. Kinda makes a bit of sense, and Fox News should probably be viewed with the same lens as Family Guy and The Simpsons.

Thsi is the equivalent to people crying "The refs are on their side" in football.

Grow up already. And no it isn't bias when a media source reports that your candidate or your party said something very disgusting towards a group of voters or shows outright disdain for them. It is called reporting.
 
2012-11-05 01:42:26 PM
All the Foxies bash CNN for being too liberal. Direct your attention to the bottom of most CNN articles (including opinion pieces). There is room for comments from folks who agree with the article and those with dissenting opinions. They are both displayed. Look at the bottom of this Fux News article. See anything missing?????

I have noticed we have a lot of "attacks to the source" of this article, but no arguments against the points raised in the article itself. I have to assume from this that nobody here can find any fault with the article and most people here are just a bunch of blind FOX haters.

Thanks everyone for supporting the article with your failure to address it in a substantive manner!!!!

BTW, does anyone know if Biden really said that, and what context it was in? I am asking because I don't watch FOX and I NEVER heard about it from anyone else. I would be really curious to know just how much FOX is spinning it. On the flip side, I know for a fact it can't be as bad as the liberal media spin on "Binder full of women", which in context made 100% sense and was not offensive at all. But you damn sure know the liberal media took that one and tried to run Romeny into the ground with it. If they were unbiased they would have not done that, or would have done the same with Biden.

enderthexenocide: ... A casual comment about the "47 percent" ...

oh, it was totally just a casual comment. no reason to make a big about it or anything. the media should totally have been talking about obama's "radical positions" and "ongoing failures," but they kept talking about casual comments that romney makes. they are so biased.


To be fair, it was a casual comment. Romney was remarkably casual in writing off 47 percent of the country as moochers with victim complexes. It was possibly the least scripted thing I've heard him say since the campaign began. And he sounded more casual and relaxed than he ever sounded in a campaign speech. Almost as if he were expressing his own actual beliefs, free of any need to appeal to any demographic other than the very, very rich.

This situation is way beyond that. Farkers and others have pointed out where Fox was wrong thousands of times over the past few months using arguments and citations. Today there is nothing left to do but point and laugh.

Just out of curiosity, do we have ANY evidence of Fox News saying ANYTHING positive about Obama, at all, EVER? And I don't mean maybe a guest they had on i mean someone that is a regular personality who is on the Fox payroll.

Did you actual see the press try to run him into the ground with it, or are you looking for something to blame? Sure, some pundits mocked him for it, but it's not like newspapers wrote a bunch of articles scandalizing it. When mentioned, it was typically as an example of a relatively poor debate performance, or to report people's reactions. The same way they would have noted another "57 states" gaffe on Obama's part as contributing to a debate loss.

Now, bloggers and pundits and such did mock him, but they're not the mainstream press you've convinced yourself is "liberal." Those are opinion pieces that are supposed to be biased in one direction or the other.
