Shaggy_C: I think this is great; there will finally be a counterweight to MSNBC. Everyone claims Fox is biased but that's just because they aren't used to both sides getting equal time. In most of the liberal media, conservative opinions are either ignored or given barely any air time while the liberal commentators and their enablers the anchors themselves do all the talking. On Fox both sides are treated fairly and you get the balanced view. It's a little left-wing for me sometimes with all of the time they give to the liberals so I'm glad we'll finally have a proper station for pure conservative thought and opinion.


I can't tell trolling or serious. so, 9/10. Need a few misspelled words, and some signature words like "you libs" to get 10/10.

they don't on fox.

roger ailes created fox as a conservative counterweight to a perceived liberal bias in the media. he has come out and said this many times. by his own definition, fox news is not balanced at all.

Glad to know a major part of the GOP sector has not learned anything after the 332 - 206 shellacking.
 
2012-11-13 09:41:54 AM
a huge reason why the GOP lost this election is because they're getting incorrect information from the right-wing media machine. so as a democrat, i'm chuffed that they think that the answer is that they need to move their media farther to the right - unskew those polls even more!

9 am - "Soetero: The Secret Life of Barack Obama"
10 am - "Black Like Me - The Obama Agenda for America's White People"
11 am - "Circle Jerk - A Roundtable Discussion of issues that concern the Tea Party"
12 pm - "I'm One of the Good Ones - The Allen West Story"

3 pm - "Obama - What the Fark is This Guy's Problem?"
4 pm - "Sauce, Cheese, and Grease Cooking Hour"
5 pm - Hoverround Infommercial

That last hour is ridiculous. What typical Tea Partier is going to be up that late, and what typical Tea Partier doesn't have a Hoverround? Hell, their Medicare helped them buy it.


An you best keep your hands off it (both the Medicare and the Hoverround)

WI241TH: YoungSwedishBlonde: Watched some of it on election night. I didn't get a chance to see them when the election was called for Obama unfortunately, but they had a doughy balding white guy akin to Rush next to some blonde tart with about an inch of make up on her face spewing the usual whargarbl

Megyn Kelly and Karl Rove, that's where the line about Republican Math comes from: Link


Ha, despite the similarities, I was really referring to the actual TPNN. They have a livestream up on election night, I'll have to look at my history when I get home to get the link. The production value was that of a HS Intro to Broadcasting class.

Never really looked at the pic closely before. Does that graffiti in the background say something about sobriety? "Freedom From Sobriety" would be my guess, though it must have been bought from an artist since the spelling appears to be correct.

It pretty much is. They are still popular among very conservative folk. That, along with the election, is more proof that the "silent majority" is just not conservative.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: The left in this country is farther to the right than most European right wing parties. It's like our right wing doesn't even have a goal, other than "pull anyone left of me farther towards the right". Sad thing is, they're winning the game, and nobody seems to notice.


Are they really winning the game?

Lost the Presidency in both EC and popular vote, and actually lost ground in the Senate, despite outspending the Democrats about 3 to 1 (and the truly massive Republican far-right propaganda blitz).

No, everyone who's going to get on the Right-wing crazy train is already aboard. Now the problem is that some of that wing are becoming radicalized.

I haven't seen it (but it's a 2008 German remake of The Wave). Does it have the X-Men's Senator Kelley in the starring role?

Fixed.

More seriously: I can only think that this channel would be a video version of the Daily Mail, where all stories can be summarized as one of:
* undocumented immigrants with ties to terrorism allowed to stay next to your kid's school
* health and safety regulations force closure of 80 year old business
* pedophile appointed head of government agency
* Romney should have won, says independent news analyst
* Man has sex change -- weds self 
* Internet invented by liberals to provide kiddie-porn to home-schoolers

Its the new style. Present the most partisan opinion as neutral by wrapping happy/sharing words around it. The Fox World Wide News Entertainment division constantly attacking the Left is new center, so MSNBC must be Pravda.

Really? Hmm. I think I heard that the GOP was going to be marginalized Southern Party after 2008.

Here's a prediction -- 2014 election night when all the under 35 voters stay home because Obama didn't do all kinds of magic by executive order....he'll still be black and the Senate will belong to the Tea Party.

"Disappointment" with Obama led to the 2010 GOP sweep of state houses which made the House reliably Republican for another 2-3 election cycles and guarantees more obscructionism which guarantees more "disappointment" etc.

Heh.

Reminds me of one night way back when I had cable, was flipping back and forth between Fox and CNN, both had the 4 box screen of different commentators arguing some point. On Fox, everyone was screaming, trying to yell louder than the other so as to be heard yet it only resulted in a migraine inducing wargarbarl. Switched to CNN, they're arguing the same argument and switching between people, there were some rolling of the eyes but no one was interrupting anyone; that is until one guy got bent and begun screaming and interrupting the others. The host keeps asking him to calm down, let someone else speak and not to scream on her show. He continues after a couple warnings until his feed was cut. She looks straight at the camera and says: I warned him three times, if he can't have an adult conversation then he can't be on my show.

Also, do eeet! Hopefully this leads to the true split between the Republican party and the teabaggers. If we can shatter that party in half the Democrats will run roughshot over both of them for the next 10-20 years. It would be smart for liberals to help bankroll this teabagger news network to help get it started. Its basically the same as pushing the GOP off of a cliff.


Yeah, that is just what we need. A one party monopoly (even more so than already exists with the Republicrats)

I blame the education system in America. Allowing the education system to fall under states rights in several areas has left the majority of the south and rural areas underfunded and with poor teachers/curriculum. As a result America has some of the dumbest people in the industrialized world. Bigoted dumb rednecks that consistently fall prey to conspiracy theories and siding against their own best interests.

That has a high chance of backfiring. FOX already sways people into blatantly false propositions. An ever derpier network could sway people even farther to the right. Because of Poe's Law you could put up almost any crazy thing and not only would it be believable but a large percentage of people would be convinced by your message. Even people who didn't buy it would start saying "Well sure, FOX is a little right of center but have you seen those nuts on the Tea Party Network?"

Same with everything, though... Like the price of gas, for example- Price jumps a dollar, people moan.. Price goes down 50 cents, people happy... Later on, price goes up a buck.. People moan.. Price goes down 50 cents, people happy... Later on price goes up a buck, people moan... Etc. Etc. Etc.
