Fox News Commentator Agrees With Jon Stewart’s Criticism

Comedy Central’s host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, frequently roasts Fox News and their personalities, such as Bill O’Reilly. This week, on The O’Reilly Factor, Fox News commentator Bernie Goldberg agreed with Stewart’s statements about Fox News’ hosts using generalizations in reference to liberals. Last week Stewart brought up Fox News’ hypocrisy and told the network to “go f–k yourselves.”

O’REILLY: Does Stewart have a point here?” Bill O’Reilly asked. “Are we being hypocritical by generalizing about some people?

GOLDBERG: I’ll just speak about me. He does. I am pleading guilty. And that’s a sincere plea of guilty. I said that liberals think people who live in the middle of the country are a bunch of jerks, and obviously all liberals don’t think that. But I will tell you what, an awful lot of liberal elites think that. I worked with these liberal elites for 28 years at CBS News, and they were always throwing around the term white trash, by which they meant poor southerners who didn’t go to Harvard. I’m not sure why that makes them trash. As far as the middle of the country is concerned, you know, this was flyover country where people flew the flag on the Fourth of July and went bowling and ate at Red Lobster. You know, they were a bunch of hicks. But even all liberal elites don’t think that. So I am saying I was wrong, Jon Stewart is right.

Of course, Goldberg went on a rant about Stewart and even compared him to “a safe Jay Leno with a much smaller audience.”

The McBoycott

mcboycott_200x200Why boycott McDonalds, beside the simple fact that their food is largely regarded as being unhealthy? McDonalds restaurants, in some areas including Missouri and Kansas (UPDATE: similar report from Florida), have agreed to place large TVs in their restaurants with the proviso that they broadcast Fox News and only Fox News. One manager explained that it’s corporate policy. A Regional Director for McDonald’s stated that TVs were being placed in all McDonald’s in a five state region. Danya Proud, spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, denied that it is corporate policy, but that it may be a regional or franchise policy.

While the aforementioned sources are from 2008, and FoxNation.com has bashed McDonalds for their “black” web site last year, similar complaints still come in via email. One person reported nice 50″ plasma TVs in at least five McDonald’s franchises, with different owners. The writer was told that they “have to keep it on” and that FNC is the only channel listed in the menu, or in a channel search.

One solution: TV-B-Gone

Bret Baier Interrupts President Obama 16 Times!

There’s no doubt that President Obama didn’t expect soft ball questions yesterday when he went on Fox News Channel’s’ Special Report to be interviewed about health care reform by Bret Baier, but the lack of respect displayed by the Fox News personality was astounding!

As Obama pointed out, Baier repeated interrupted him while trying to answer the host’s questions. Not once, not five, ten, or a dozen times. 16 Times! Incredibly, Baier said that Obama was dodging his questions, to which Obama responded, “Well, I’m trying to answer your questions and you keep on interrupting.”

Glenn Beck Has Lost More Than 200 Sponsors

According to the Washington Post, more than 200 companies have pulled their ads from Glenn Beck’s show(s), including Apple who, apparently, has pulled all ads from FNC!

More than 200 companies have joined a boycott of Beck’s program, making it difficult for Fox to sell ads. The time has instead been sold to smaller firms offering such products as Kaopectate, Carbonite, 1-800-PetMeds and Goldline International. A handful of advertisers, such as Apple, have abandoned Fox altogether. Network executives say they believe they could charge higher rates if the host were more widely acceptable to advertisers.

There is a legitimate fear for Fox News staffers that Beck is becoming the face of the network. One Fox “journalist” stated that Beck “uses distorted or inflammatory rhetoric that undermines their credibility.”

Roger Ailes: White House May Have Had ‘Legitimate Complaints’ About Fox News

Without providing specifics, Fox News President Roger Ailes may have made an admission of guilt about the bias found on Fox News… at least as far as the claims that came from the White House.

ROBINSON: Do you subscribe to the statement of your news host Chris Wallace that the Obama administration is “the biggest bunch,” he said, “the biggest bunch of crybabies” that he’s dealt with in his 30 years in Washington?

AILES: That was his…

ROBINSON: They’re whining over nothing!

AILES: Well, I don’t think they’re whining over nothing and I think they have — look, there’s legitimate complaints that they could have. And I’ve had this dialogue with David Axelrod, who I like very much and, there are legitimate areas. I mean, Chris said that, that’s his words, that’s what he believes, and he had reason to believe that. But I don’t think its helpful to say that.

Sarah Palin on ‘Fairness’ and ‘Balance’ in MSM

Fox News contributor Sarah Palin was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where she had some rather entertaining things to say… And it was not the somewhat intelligent entertainment one would hope for from a Vice Presidential candidate, but rather what you would expect from Palin: a tsunami of BS.

PALIN: I studied journalism, my college degree there in communications. And now I am back there wanting to build some trust back in our media. I think the mainstream media is quite broken and I think there needs to be the fairness, the balance in there — that’s why I joined Fox. Fair and balanced, yes. You know because, Jay, those years a go that I studied journalism it was all about the who, what, when, where, and why, it was not so much the opinion interjected in hard news stories. … As long as there is not the opinion under the guise of hard news stories — I think there needs to be clear differentiation.

YouTube Preview Image

Not only does she ignore the fact that Fox News Channel is part of the mainstream media, but she ignores all of the evidence that clearly shows that Fox News’ opinions bleed over to their “news” segments… Unless she was talking about FNC being “quite broken.”

Paul Krugman on Fox News’ ‘Deliberate Misinformation’

Many of us would love to tell Roger Ailes that his network is in the business of “deliberate misinformation” to his face. Paul Krugman got that chance, on national TV no less… enjoy.

Fox News Incorrectly Names Co-President of Atheist Group

It’s not uncommon for Fox News to make typos and air mistakes, intentional or not, and their religious bias is hardly a secret. But this one is more than a simple mistake. In a piece about an atheist group, the following graphic was included, which incorrectly names the co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Her real name is Annie Laurie Gaylor, not what is shown below!

Roger Ailes’ Reasoning for Cutting Away From Obama Q&A

Arianna Huffington asked Fox News president Roger Ailes why Fox News was the only cable news network to cut away from President Obama’s questions and answers session with House Republicans.

HUFFINGTON: Roger, you clearly are in ratings, but if you are in ratings, can you explain to me why FOX went away from the meeting the president was having in — why did you go away, 20 minutes before the end?

AILES: Because we’re the most trusted name in news.

Ailes’ response may be somewhat honest, but only if you consider who is placing their trust in Fox News and what, exactly, they are trusting… It certainly isn’t the truth. But, any rational person knows that you cannot be a trusted name in news if you don’t actually provide news.

Here’s what Paul Krugman had to say about the subject, after the interview:

HUFFINGTON: Their framing of the President is that he’s radical, that he’s taking us down a dark, fascist or Bolshevik future — depending on the day. And there he was, rational, charming, and in full command of his facts. So the narrative fell apart and so the cameras stopped showing what was happening.

KRUGMAN: Yeah, I mean it’s — I thought it was actually quite funny except it has real consequences. There you have Roger Ailes, with this powerful, popular news network, whining about how the media are unfair to Republicans. I mean, he is a powerful person in the media — and of course, you know, “Fair and Balanced” is truly Orwellian and we know that. So it’s clear that Fox — I felt like yelling to him, “you can’t handle the truth,” because that was what was actually happening on the Fox coverage.

Fox News Cut Away From Obama Q&A With House Republicans

President Obama held a Q & A session with the Republican members of Congress at the GOP House Issues Conference, during which he addressed many falsehoods related to health care, the budget, taxes, etc. All cable news networks covered the session, but Fox News was the only channel to cut it off with 20 minutes left. Apparently The Live Desk co-host Trace Gallagher thought Obama was “at times being a little bit combative” and that “there was a little bit of lecturing there.”

House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) held a “Republican Response” press conference after the question and answer session with Obama. Not surprising, Fox News Channel covered the entire thing, including Karl Rove’s commentary prior to the press conference.

Fox Affiliate Bashes FNC’s Political Agenda

At least one local Fox affiliate is trying to distance themselves from the Fox News Channel. Here’s what Las Vegas’ Fox-5 news director Adam P. Bradshaw had to say:

BRADSHAW: We’re as fair and balanced as they’re not. We don’t have an agenda. Some viewers draw that connection. Most have never been able to tell a network from a local (station). I’ll get on a plane in my Fox-5 jacket and somebody goes, ‘I love (Fox News Channel’s) Shepard Smith!’ Or hate him. But it doesn’t have any impact on our coverage.

Bradshaw also addressed the difference between independent Fox affiliates, like Fox-5 in Las Vegas, and those that are owned and operated (O&O) by Fox. “Their (O&Os) coverage is more in line with the Fox attitude,” Bradshaw says. “We’re not following their political agenda in any way, shape or form.”

Fox News’ Major Garrett Tweets Vegas Erotic Service Web Site

Copy/paste mistakes can be embarrassing… Last night, around the time of President Obama’s State of the Union speech, Fox News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett, apparently, made one of those mistakes. He intended to direct followers to excerpts of the speech, but sent people a NSFW site instead.

For those who don’t know, people on Twitter commonly use URL shorteners (i.e. bit.ly) when posting links due to the 140 character limit. Using the URL shortener, Garrett posted a link, but failed to see that the destination of the link was an erotic service in Las Vegas.

The tweet was quickly deleted and Garrett made these statements:

I apologize. Bit.ly turned my original link to SOTU excerpts to a soft-porn link. NOT my intention. whitehouse.blogs…. Wed 27 Jan 19:21

The link just posted works. Any frequent visitor here knows that is not my style. Sorry. Shld have caught it sooner. Wed 27 Jan 19:23

For those suckling snide syrup. I publicly acknowledged an innocent mistake and corrected it. If that’s not good enuf, take a hike. Wed 27 Jan 20:18

Garrett previously tweeted that Obama will be in Vegas in the near future. It will be interesting to see if he’ll be tagging along – perhaps he’s planning his trip and was checking out the local entertainment… What actually may have occurred is that a character or two was not pasted along with the rest of the bit.ly URL, so the URL posted was one that may have been created some time ago. It is funny that his tweet after the mistake had been realized was blaming bit.ly when it was clearly an error on his part.
