Fox news fed the beast and let it move into the house. Now they are learning you can't piss off the beast that is in your house.

"Boy, what an ass Neil was," the viewer wrote. "I will watch for a Dem to get grilled like that but won't hold my breath."

Yes, because "I don't care about actual news, I just want to stick it to the libs" is a healthy viewpoint.

I never get tired of that pic, especially because its still perennially relevant to the vast majority of Politics threads.

FTFA: "Now some of you say you will never, ever watch me again for the way I treated a congresswoman who I otherwise very much respect," Cavuto said. "Well, then I respectfully bid you adieu because if you prefer only hearing the interviews that suit you than let me say good-bye to you now because the time's going to come again when I will probably offend you."

Good on him. Cavuto often an ass, but I've seen him grill people of various views who needed to be grilled. Shouldn't be intimidated by viewers. For the life of me I can't figure out why he's supposed to be offended by a comparison to Bill O'.

Yeah, I've used it alot lately.  It will only get more relevant as the GOP gets going in 2015/16.  But, I have the bottle corker all ready to put up a lifetime supply of GOP Tears, so I think I'm ready for it.
 
2014-06-27 01:23:46 PM  
Yeah! I'm sick of Fox News doing nothing but fellating the President, and the Democratic party. Fair and balanced MY ASS!

How dare they stop sticking it to the libs and stick to anybody else. Don't they know their job?

Really don't care for Cavuto, of course.  But good on him.  I hope he sticks to his guns.

In order to do that, they have to invite a Democrat onto their network.

Serious question: If you were a Democrat, why would you go on Fox News? You're not going to change any of their viewer's minds, so it seems rather pointless.
 
2014-06-27 01:50:53 PM  
After reading that headline, I just realized that I'm so out of touch with politics that I'm not entirely certain who Michele Bachmann is or what she does, and I've never even heard of Neil Cavuto until exactly right now.

Hm.

Heaven forbid FOX News viewers send emails deriding the ludicrous statement that we should defund the Executive Branch.

Is Al Sharpton a congressman? No he isn't. If he was a congressman who said something as painfully stupid as Bachmann did, I would expect them to grill him.

Don't you love it when Right Wingers try to hold private citizens to the same standards as their backwards ass politicians?

The things you learn in a Fark thread that have nothing whatsoever to do with the topic at hand.

Fox News got to learn to study it out!
 
2014-06-27 02:50:53 PM  
Bachman's district needs to gerrymandered the hell out of it the way she's been carrying on. It's still cute that some people still think she's gonna get a cushy Fox job after she gets out of DC.

Oh, and someone needs to find these complaining idiots and shame them.
 
2014-06-27 02:51:48 PM  
If you can't question Michelle Bachmann without backlash, your base may have reached full derp.  Please check your base and apply necessary repairs.

Remember, something like 40% of doctors are republicans, and it's not like lying on surveys is hard.  Those numbers aren't too far off from what an actual survey would've turned up.

I have not seen the news articles that say 40% of doctors have quit or retired since January. Please send a link.

Yes, but mostly it's stuff like "i hate that they didn't show enough of Kelly's legs when she said things to that old guy."

I totally don't get that. Seems like a couple of the funniest and most thoughtful segments I've seen on the Daily Show lately have been at the expense of Democrats. I know there's a whole world of people who can't take even the slightest criticism without feeling personally attacked. I feel sorry for these people. Here's a bumper sticker:

Life is more fun when you laugh at EVERY one
