Fox News Warns Democrats About Patriotic Music

Various Fox News personalities have been fixating on what they call an attempt to “kill” their patriotic music. Here is what they had to say, then check the whole truth below.

BRET BAIER: “[T]he House of Representatives today faced the music and reversed a decision to kill the patriotic tunes callers hear when they’re put on hold.”

SEAN HANNITY: “Now, up until now, you probably have been enjoying lovely patriotic tunes. Well, that is until Nancy Pelosi had anything to say about it. Under the current Democratic leadership, patriotic music was replaced with smooth jazz elevator music.”

STEVE DOOCY: “[I]n what has got to go down as one of the most boneheaded moves of the summer, which is now concluding as we approach Labor Day, apparently Nancy Pelosi and the House leadership had said … we’re going to have a test project where, for three weeks, we’re going to get rid of the patriotic music.”

So, what’s really going on? There is no conspiracy to eliminate patriotic music. House Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Daniel Beard’s spokesman Jeff Ventura had this to say:

The music was changed during recess as a pilot program in an attempt to offer offices a choice of hold music. [...]

This had nothing to do with the leadership — not in the beginning or the final outcome.

Veterans Demand Apology From GOP & Fox News

Regarding the so-called “death book”  that supposedly encourages veterans to “commit suicide” is under fire from veterans. On August 25, RNC Chairman Michael Steele made this claim on Fox & Friends, which went unchecked and, of course, was not disputed.

Now, veterans are demanding an apology from Steel and Fox News for the failure to report the truth and for creating “an atmosphere of mistrust “Let me be absolutely clear, Steele lied. There is no VA manual encouraging veterans to commit suicide,” said Paul Sullivan, the executive director of VCS, a non-profit based in Washington, DC providing advocacy for veterans, especially veterans with mental health conditions.

STEELE: “If you want an example of bad public policy, let’s look at this situation with our veterans where you have a manual out there, telling our veterans stuff like, ‘Are you really a value to your community?’ and, you know, encouraging them to commit suicide. This is crazy coming from the government, and this is exactly what concerns people, what puts them in fear of what government controlled health care, of health care, will look like.”

Fox News Attacks Color Of Change Co-Founder Van Jones

Color Of Change, an organization effectively pushing sponsors away from Glenn Beck’s show for the inflammatory comments he made about President Obama, was co-founded by Van Jones. Fox News’ Glenn Beck and Fox & Friends hosts have now gone on the attack against Van Jones, who has had nothing to do with the boycott. Jones is now a White House environmental advisor who is working toward clean energy incentives and creating 21st century jobs.

Gretchen Carlson teased the upcoming segment with Glenn Beck by mentioning Van Jones having “ties to a terrorist.” This claim was never backed up, revisited, nor its source cited.

BECK: [Jones is] basically a community organizer inside the framework of our republic. That’s what’s happening. When Barack Obama said, “I am going to promise you fundamental transformation of our nation,” this is what’s happening. We are bringing community organizations and community organizers and we’re embedding them inside of the system to build a new framework. This guy in particular, and he’s not the only one, and you’ll see more tonight, this guy in particular is an avowed communist, communist!

Regardless of Van Jones’ views, he has not been with Color Of Change for two years and had nothing to do with the boycott against Glenn Beck’s advertisers. “Glenn Beck is trying to change the subject,” said James Rucker, executive director of Color of Change, “The issue is his baseless fear mongering.”

Fox News Misleads About AARP Membership Loss

Fox News is reporting that American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has lost 60,000 members since July 1, 2009. Keep reading to see why the following claims are BS.

Hannity claimed loss of 60,000 members “very indicative.” On August 18, Fox News’ Sean Hannity stated: “[W]hat are we to make of the AARP? According to reports now — CBS News had a report — 60,000 members of the AARP have left. I think that’s very indicative that they’re losing seniors. There is a conservative alternative, American Seniors for Choice, which is against Obama’s plan. They gained as many as 5,000 members.” He also stated that AARP’s “love affair” with President Obama “has cost the AARP tens of thousands of members.”

Fox News’ Van Susteren: “Sixty thousand senior citizens have bolted AARP.” On the August 18 edition of her Fox News show, Greta Van Susteren stated: “They’re out — 60,000 of them. Sixty thousand senior citizens have bolted AARP since July 1.” She then interviewed an AARP member who stated that she is planning to quit the group because of her views on the AARP’s position on health care reform.

Doocy: “Sixty thousand people: that is the number of people who have left or canceled AARP.” On August 19, Fox News Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy stated: “Sixty thousand people: that is the number of people who have left or canceled AARP — the American Association of Retired Persons — since July 1st. Some members are outraged and continue to criticize the over-50 group because of their support for health care reform.” The following graphic appeared onscreen while Doocy spoke:

There are two sides to every story, and in this case the other side provides the whole truth… Let’s look at the figures, first, regarding membership numbers for AARP to see why Fox News’ claims are misleading. AARP claims that they regularly lose 300,000 members per month due to reasons including death. AARP also gained 400,000 members and 1.5 million members have renewed since July 1. AARP has around 40 million members, making that 60,000 a fraction of a percent.

Fox News Ticker Faux Pas – Rep. Joke Sestak

As mentioned previously, Fox News has a history of getting information, such as party affiliation, wrong on their broadcasts, intentional, or not. But how many times does it take to not be a coincidence or accident? Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) was renamed Rep. Joke Sestak (D-PA) on the August 17 edition of Fox & Friends.

Gretchen Carlson Gets Cash For Clunker Stat Wrong

Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson claimed to have performed some “crack research” about the Cash for Clunkers program, but you’d have to be smoking crack to believe it…

CARLSON: By the way, I did my own crack research yesterday, spent a tremendous amount of time on this yesterday finding out information. In my home state of Minnesota, so far only two of these deals have actually been approved –

DOOCY: That’s all?

CARLSON: — by the government.

DOOCY: Wow.

CARLSON: Two in the entire state of Minnesota. And then you wonder about whether or not these dealers feel like they’re going to get their money from the government. Not so sure.

It’s not as if she misspoke and then corrected herself. She actually believes she’s right. The fact of the matter is Minnesota Automobile Dealers Association’s study shows that out of the 7,500 submissions, the government has approved 2 percent, which would be 150. And only 8 percent have been rejected.

Fox News Hosts Criticize Obama on Nonexistent Provision

The Drudge Report & Rush Limbaugh have floated a false accusation that President Obama has not read, or is not familiar with certain provisions of the House health care reform bill. Even after the accusations were debunked, Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Neil Cavuto, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade all criticized Obama for the same reason.

July 21 – Hannity (talking with Dana Perino):

HANNITY: The president is rushing Congress to produce a health care bill before the August recess, but apparently he’s not reading the bill too closely. Now listen to his response when asked by a blogger about a provision in the House bill.

OBAMA : You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you’re talking about. Let me just speak for the Obama administration.

July 21 – Your World With Neil Cavuto (does not challenge flasehood):

DeMINT: And now he wants to pass something that affects a fifth of our total economy in the next two weeks, and no one has even seen an entire bill. He doesn’t even know what’s in it, and he’s admitted it

July 22 – Fox & Friends:

DOOCY: We are going to talk to her about it. So there he is, and somebody wants to know about one particular part, section 102, because it’s very important to all of us. Let’s hear what the president had to say about it.

OBAMA : You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you’re talking about. Let me just speak for the Obama administration.

KILMEADE: And here’s — so I thought, OK, 102 — it’s over 1,000 pages.

DOOCY: Right.

KILMEADE: So it’s no big deal. Maybe we are demanding too much.

The fact of the matter is that the provision referenced by Hannity, Cavuto, Doocy & Kilmeade does not exist. How did this start? A blogger asked Obama to comment on a claim made in a July 15 Investor’s Business Daily editorial. The blogger claimed that the bill “will make individual private medical insurance illegal.” Obama responded, “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you’re talking about.” – because it does not exist.

Brian Kilmeade Apologizes for ‘Pure Society’ Comments

It took about a week, but Fox & Friends cohost Brian Kilmeade finally apologized for making racist remarks about the pureness of Americans, or lack thereof.

“I made comments that were offense to many people,” confessed Kilmeade. “Looking back at those comments I realize they were inappropriate. For that, I sincerely apologize.”

He originally said this:

KILMEADE: We keep marrying other species and other ethnics–

CARLSON: Are you sure you are not suffering from some of the causes of dementia right now?

KILMEADE: The problem is the Swedes have pure genes. They marry other Swedes, that’s the rule. Finns marry other Finns; they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody. We will marry Italians and Irish.

Brian Kilmeade Gets a Little Racist on Fox & Friends

The talking heads on Fox & Friends were discussing the effects of long-term marriage on individuals in regards to Alzheimer’s disease. Brian Kilmeade, for reasons only a racist might know, brings up the following… uh… points?

BROWN HAIRED GUY: We keep marrying other species and other ethnics–

GRETCHEN CARLSON: Are you sure you are not suffering from some of the causes of dementia right now?

BROWN HAIRED GUY: The problem is the Swedes have pure genes. They marry other Swedes, that’s the rule. Finns marry other Finns; they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody. We will marry Italians and Irish.

DAVE BRIGGS: This study does not apply?

BROWN HAIRED GUY: Does not apply to us.

[pause]

DAVE BRIGGS: Huh.

Fox News Quite Upset About Al Franken Victory

Fox News personalities Glenn Beck and Brian Kilmeade (Fox & Friends) seem to be extremely upset that Al Franken is now a Senator… Of course, Fox News did sue Franken (and lost) about using the term “fair and balanced” in the title of his book… This is just childish ranting:

GLENN BECK: This is like having me in the Senate,” Beck said. “You don’t want me as a Senator! What is that? I mean, it shows how crazy our country has gone — you don’t want me as a Senator, you don’t want Al Franken as a Senator.

BRIAN KILMEADE: Now we find out that Al Franken — who’s barely sane if you read his books, and is quite angry in every facet of his life — is now the Senator from Minnesota

Even the Rupert Murdoch owned Wall Street Journal gets in on the rhetoric:

WALL STREET JOURNAL: Mr. Franken now goes to the Senate having effectively stolen an election… If the GOP hopes to avoid repeats, it should learn from Minnesota that modern elections don’t end when voters cast their ballots. They only end after the lawyers count them.

Fox News Lies About Obama’s Stance on Terrorism

The following screen capture shows the caption, “President’s Distorted Reality? Claims there is no more terrorism” while the subject of Barack Obama’s Cairo speech was being discussed on Fox & Friends. Of course, this is hardly honest, or factual.

Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy stated, “War on terror must be over. In fact, terrorism no longer a problem because the president never, not once, mentioned war on terror.” Semantics aside, President Obama did address, at length, the topic of violent extremism in his speech at Cairo University. Just because he didn’t repeat the terror, terrorist, terrorism mantra like Bush did, ad naseum, doesn’t mean the topic wasn’t addressed, or that “there is no more terrorism. ”

Fox News: Guardian of Persecuted Christians

The Fox News web site and Fox & Friends featured a story about a San Diego pastor and his family who were paid a visit by a San Diego County employee. Apparently they were in violation of county code, specifically “unlawful use of land,” and that they need a “major use permit.” The family claims that they were simply having a bible study, but the article is unclear about how many people were in the assembly.

Unfortunately, for those of us who like to know both sides of the story, including the truth, Fox News failed to provide any statements, or facts, from San Diego County. Apparently, Fox News will stand up for martyrs being persecuted, as long as they’re Christian…
