(Washington Post)   You may be worried about what might happen to Fox News if their number one benefactor, Donald Trump, is forced from office next year. But don't worry, they're already planning a 4-year reboot of their hit show, The Obama Years   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

They peddle in fear. They'll do better when the white house isn't impinging on their turf.

This.  I am sure that many on-air people are looking forward to not needing to defend cartoonish incompetence on a daily basis.

Oh, you mean back when they were calling Obama a "narcissist", making fun of his "57 states" flub in a speech and biatching for months about Michelle Obama spending $600 on farking shoes.

Should Biden be elected, I hope, the very first time a FN reporter asks him a question, he calls it nasty and revokes his press credentials for a day or so.  Then he can watch the Fox News right-wing-o-sphere go farking ape shiat for a bit before reinstating them and pointing out their blatant hypocrisy.

Counterpoint: I'd like him to not act like Trump.  That's kind of the whole argument for voting for him.

This is the Fark Politics tab.  I'm surprised that your comment doesn't have a dozen smarts already.

It will just be Hannity screaming the n-word on an endless loop, with interstitials of Ingraham throwing Nazi salutes and Tucker sobbing into his vast Swanson's Frozen Food inheritance about white male victimhood.

Congress needs to ban Yellow Journalism, it's literally propaganda anyway.


Shut the assholes down.

So what?  Progressives are legion and will continue to be.  Stay vigilant, but don't engage those with a Fox News worldview.  Keep an eye on them, but ignore and vote them into complete feckless irrelevance.  You will never change hearts and minds by engagement.

Upon second thought, I decided I don't care enough to go around WaPo's paywall. This isn't newsworthy.

They thought that their revenue would plummet when they lost their boogie man but it turns out having an amoral scumbag willing to parrot conspiracies is even more profitable.

Media cross ownership as permitted by the 1996 Telecommunications act needs to be regulated out of reality.

Doing so would break up Fox News and promote the proliferation of local news to at least pre-1996 levels.
 
2020-10-29 3:22:38 PM  
I didn't think they stopped running the Obama show, except for the Hillary Chronicles teaser in 2016 that didn't pan out.
 
2020-10-29 3:24:51 PM  
Same as always. If Trump wins, they'll be the unofficial propaganda network of the Trump Administration.

If they lose, they'll be Radio Free America saving us all from the communists and advertising grassroots Tea Party 3.0 rallies that they secretly organized.

All I know is mayor pete better be up for press secretary. He's been spanking Fox for the past few weeks and it's been so entertaining.

Fox: The pity party must go on. Donald has been unfairly treated. Suburbanite housewives and Thanksgiving are the real victims here. Biden wanted to hurt God! I will shed tears into my MAGA hat until the kingdom of our Lord Dotard is restored.

Does this mean I can look forward to a Resurgence of my favorite game to play using satellite radio? I tune into Hannity or Fox News on the television and start a stopwatch. Not counting commercials or fluff pieces I have yet to make it past 4 minutes where there hasn't been some veiled reference to how awful anybody with the last name of Obama or Clinton are. I guess I can add AOC to that list.

It's all they have and with nobody effectively able to call them out on it eventually repetition becomes reality.
 
2020-10-29 3:26:00 PM  
The biggest fear FOX News has is not about who wins the election, it's about their demographics.  As their viewers die off, can they be replaced?
 
2020-10-29 3:28:15 PM  
Fox needs to be destroyed. The only way to do that is go after each and every advertiser until they all either withdraw their ads or go out of business.
 
2020-10-29 3:29:22 PM  
No shait subby. That's not a surprise to anyone. The real question is whether or not the rest of the Media will cook up another fake Russian Hoax to levy against Biden in order keep their ratings?

I wouldn't hold your breath.
 
2020-10-29 3:31:18 PM  
It will be all AOC, all the time.
 
2020-10-29 3:31:23 PM  
Oh -- and never let them sweep this under the rug:

Relax. They'll have Kamala Harris to kick around for four years---especially if something happens to Biden and she finds herself in the White House

Heavens, her husband is even Jewish. Fox viewers who tune in to hear how (((Bolsheviks))) and (((billionaires))) hate America will eat the shiat up with a spoon, having increasing trouble holding a knife and fork due to COVID-related dementia.

/Blow that whistle harder, Laura. There was a Chihuahua in Tel Aviv who didn't hear it.
 
2020-10-29 3:33:59 PM  
They will do the same thing they did to Bush, ignore him and pretend they never heard of him and just focus on their attack of Biden and the DNC. Any flub will be a sign of dementia, jaywalking will be the worst thing a modern president has eve done since Obama. It will be all tan suits and dijon mustard again.

Trump supporters find it acceptable being miserable as long as "those people" are miserable, too.

Trump supporters find in intolerable if "those people" get to be treated the same as everybody else, even if it means everybody's life being substantially improved.

That's the sickness of this country. A third of the country is motivated by hate more than anything else.
 
2020-10-29 3:35:36 PM  
Derp never sleeps.
New narratives are being thought up and focus grouped as we speak.
Have no fear, Fox will never run out of lies.
 
2020-10-29 3:35:46 PM  
Oh Fox needs to worry if Trump loses.

Trump Network News will be a thing

How much of Fox's audience will switch?
 
2020-10-29 3:37:56 PM  
The GOP is great at being an opposition party - they just get to say No! and they don't have to have ideas of their own.   Like a toddler.  Fox is just an extension of this attitude, they'll do fine with a democratic president.

I can't wait until they refuse to take Trump's calls on the Foxy Friends. You'll see it coming when they start to cut him off sooner than usual.

The way I see it, we have two ways of dealing with Fox News after a Biden win...

We can take them on for the treasonous criminals that they are and end their rampant abuse of the first amendment. This will undoubtedly whip the right into a frothy, rage-induced frenzy that will only make them hate us more.

Alternatively, we can choose to heal the country and let them off with a warning in the spirit of bipartisanship. This will undoubtedly whip the right into a frothy, rage-induced frenzy that will only make them hate us more.

It's a tough call.

They have a playbook for in-power and out-of-power.  They've got experience at how to lie to their viewers.

Same thing they always do, Pinky. Whine and biatch about Democrats while pushing all the current right-wing talking points.
 
2020-10-29 6:08:24 PM  
Pretty sure there are plenty of reasons they should be shut down, people charged.
 
2020-10-29 6:11:56 PM  
I would pay good money to see Hannity and Ingraham punch each other in the face again and again and again and again and again and again.

While standing on Tucker.

They'd do this until one of them falls down.

Then Alex Jones would come in and kick them all in the neck while screaming incoherently and slathering himself in gasoline.

Then they'd relax with a nice smoke.

Po' Li'l Fox will be OK. Haters will Hate. Calling for Biden's impeachment. Frack baby Frack. Hunters e-mails.
Hillary cheated as an elector. Jesus, oops I mean Donnie Jr for President in 2022 ( We can't wait 4 years ).
