(Atlanta Journal Constitution)   Murdoch sent special messenger to Petraeus begging him to run, offering full support from Fox News and the use of Roger Ailes as campaign manager.

Obama wanted to do Obamacare. ... He wanted to do environment, which is basically controlling all aspects of the economy.

Well the environment is rather sexy.

This won't be "news" because it is as much "news" as Anderson Cooper coming out of the closet. It's merely revealing something we all knew all along anyway.

Laughter OL...an honest-to-God "overzealous staffer" defense from Roger Ailes.

I love the classics.

Subby, liberal Democrats control the White House, the Senate, and the mainstream MSM media. Fox News supporting a specific presidential candidate in the face of that unified opposition to conservative thought and policies is merely leveling the playing field. That's what "fair and balanced" means.

PN, you are the sole reason that I always check the name of the poster before replying. Well done.

I'm completely shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

Everybody knows Murdoch is too busy trying to kil MacGyver.

Clearly both sides are equally bad.

What an amazing lack of security on Obama's part. If they could sneak a digital recorder that close to Petraeus, then we're all lucky Fox didn't try to strap a suicide vest on her.

Its really tough to find someone to run for President who is both sane AND isn't cheating on their wife.

Its why the Republicans in the end had to go with Romney.

2012-12-04 12:21:08 PM
The republican billionaires already blew a shiat ton of money on Romney, imagine the the matching funds a guy like Murdoch could have gotten... Then it would have all went to shiat when the whole scandal came out in October.
 
2012-12-04 12:24:41 PM
This would only be news if it ended up being that they WERENT in the pocket of billionaire republicans. Everyone already knows this, it's just modestly interesting that someone on their team admitted it.

I like how scared they are of Obama. Makes me realize I need to vote straight democrat from now on.

Murdoch is in it for the money, and has said so in the past. Ailes is the farking crazy one.

I can respect a whore, not so much a zealot.
 
2012-12-04 12:35:00 PM
Imagine the lulz if Petraeus had accepted and Ms.Crazyeyes Bunnyboiler got outed during the campaign.

Fox really does run like a f*cking criminal enterprise. You've got your bagman correspondent sweet-talking the potential frontman, with the boss promising to send his top enforcer to handle things.

If you put that scene in a gangster film, it would be seen as cliche and derivative.
 
2012-12-04 12:40:03 PM
If he was the presidential nominee he wouldn't have been exposed that way.
 
2012-12-04 12:43:30 PM
I usually shy away from conspiracy theory stuff, and this is certainly a huge stretch that I can't logically connect, but perhaps if Petraeus says yes, there is no Broadwell? Murdoch's power knows no bounds. And I don't mean that they'd simply cover it up after the fact, either.
 
2012-12-04 12:45:16 PM
OK, we've settled the question about whether Fox News is a wing of the Republican party, right?

I sent this article to my dad, a Fox News soldier. He keeps reminding me that they are Fair and Balanced, 'cause that's what it says. Kind of wish there was an un-send option. He's still butthurt about the election.

The have always been the PR arm of the GOP. In 2009 they became the leadership of the GOP. Seriously.
 
2012-12-04 12:58:44 PM
In a way I'm not surprised--Petraeus would have been a much better candidate than any of those who ran before the scandal erupted. And also that Fox News is a freaking propaganda spewing shiat storm.

They'll start by claiming we wouldn't have a problem with it were this done by MSNBC or Jon Stewart.

Hi. My name is Dwight Eisenhower. I was a 5-star general in the US Army, Supreme Commander of the US' Europe campaign in WWII and the first Supreme Commander of NATO. I also served as President of these United States for 8 years (as a Republican) and delivered two of the most stinging rebukes of the modern Republican Party ever issued from a President (I'm so awesome, I delivered these rebukes 40 years before anyone knew they needed to be delivered.):

1. That the military-industrial complex, which only serves to feed itself with public money, must be restrained. Sure, they do good things like cell technology/GPS and the internet, but also things like the Iraq War, billion-dollar "research" projects that do nothing but make Erik Prince richer, and cost-plus contracts that do even less than that.
2. "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

Also, like Israel found out when they elected Ehud Barak, a military man who takes his oaths seriously is not really a friend to the chickenhawky, constant-war, "project strength" types.

// not an ironclad rule, to be sure
// there are derpy generals - remember McChrystal?

I'm just really curious to see what FoxNews says about this if they actually say anything.
 
2012-12-04 01:08:57 PM
You can tell he was caught flat-footed with all of this by how lame is back pedal is.

"That's absurd!"

"There is tape."

"uhhh....I was only being a wise ass? Yeah, go with that."

Why is investigative reporter Bob Woodward's report about Petraeus & Ailes in the #Style section of the Washington Post?
