Fox News Whore for a Day: Inanity of Sean Hannity
Inside the Fox News lie machine: I fact-checked Sean Hannity on Obamacare
I happened to turn on the Hannity show on Fox News last Friday evening. “Average Americans are feeling the pain of Obamacare and the healthcare overhaul train wreck,” Hannity announced, “and six of them are here tonight to tell us their stories.” Three married couples were neatly arranged in his studio, the wives seated and the men standing behind them, like game show contestants.
I decided to hit the pavement. I tracked down Hannity’s guests, one by one, and did my own telephone interviews with them.
First I spoke with Paul Cox of Leicester, N.C. He and his wife Michelle had lamented to Hannity that because of Obamacare, they can’t grow their construction business and they have kept their employees below a certain number of hours, so that they are part-timers.
Obamacare has no effect on businesses with 49 employees or less. But in our brief conversation on the phone, Paul revealed that he has only four employees. Why the cutback on his workforce? “Well,” he said, “I haven’t been forced to do so, it’s just that I’ve chosen to do so. I have to deal with increased costs.” What costs? And how, I asked him, is any of it due to Obamacare? There was a long pause, after which he said he’d call me back. He never did.
The amount of money that is wasted on bad American media and their paid whores is wholly less egregious than their inherent attempt to proselytize idiocy, gullibility and the crippling of skepticism needed for effective participation in any discussion about any facts. Fox News, in its own way is worse for America than an outbreak of the plague. If their color scheme was not red, white and blue, I believe half the saps that watch would find something else to do. Fox News and the Republican Party are parasites.
The Republican Party Is Composed of People Who Utterly Worship Dishonesty and Superstition
Myth #1 - “One must be a Republican to legitimately criticize the Republican Party.”
If you have ever done something stupid, you understand the Republican Party. Republicans enshrine, worship and utilize stupidity; they embrace their own ignorance and the genesis of every Republican tenet they have is born of fraud.
Myth #2 - “Republicans are not parasites and bums.”
The jest of a Republican’s opinion is a couple of think tanked points followed by talking loudly over any other participant’s comments. Most Republican voters grow bedsores on their rears watching an Australian’s whore lie to get paid. A Republican behaves as if an hour a day of Bullshit Mountain allows them to achieve a thorough understanding of critical thinking. Republicans do not “work for it”, they want to be told how to think, told what to think and told when it is OK to think.
Myth #3 - "The Republican Party is a Political Party."
The Republicans no longer have a party; Republicans are now classified as a cancer. Republicans are the quintessential type of people, responsible for the failure of every great country. Republicans are that grease that makes it so easy for the corrupt and incompetent to ruin it for everyone. Republicans bring nothing to the table; Republican voters are the grist of fascism.
Myth #4 - “Government is too big.”
We in America simply have no government at this point. Our legislators are owned by the corporations and American’s brain washing by shit-stream media is complete. America is in intensive care and life support has already tried the defib once on her. She may not make it. We have no government, thanks wholly to the party of zombies who call themselves Republicans, that chant the battle cry of the corporation which has no loyalty to any country - “big government is bad government”. Republicans are those people that simply destroy countries by providing the laziness, lethargy and ignorance the corrupt and powerful need to hold us all down. As Abraham Lincoln put it, “the monied interest will divide the people and destroy the nation” - one Republican who saw where his party was going.

Call it Karma
I Don’ Know
People that listen to Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck or are fans of Fox News can not do one thing that “normal” people can do. They can not say, “I don’t know or I don’t understand.” If you do know that you don’t know, someday you might know, if you pay attention. Fox fans are too busy being told that they are right all the time to ever have much of a clue.
To understand what is going on, it takes years. Fox news philosophy is that you are being lied to if you believe that politics and issues of the day are not simple and easy to grasp. And that appeals to most Americans who actually believe that the guy in the Whitehouse has failed cause he hasn’t fixed everything in four years.
Fox news will explain it with experts like Captain Kangaroo, Rush will talk to himself for hours and tell you the way it is, Beck will stop taking his medication and tell you what to think and after a few moments you will be well versed in whatever you think - cause Fox news says so. If you don’t agree with Fox news, you are an unpatriotic bastard or a commie.
Ignorance Is More Than Bliss It Could Be Sheer Genius
The greatest thing on television Tuesday evening was the Fox News team’s collective meltdown when the network’s own analysts called the election for Obama. In fact, Fox might have given us the most entertaining five minutes of cable news in television history. Karl Rove in particular couldn’t wrap his head around the idea that Romney had lost. He sent Megyn Kelly downstairs to the Fox election desk to find out what had happened. Despite one of the election desk staffers saying he was 99.5 percent sure about the outcome, Rove insisted that there must have been a mistake.
At one point even Megyn Kelly couldn’t take Rove’s BS any longer and asked him if the number-crunching he was doing was “math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better.”
Fox News cuts Paul Ryan a new asshole? I use Fox News as a regurgitant. Fox News is pandering lying Republican horseshit and has set the low bar for lack of investigative journalism and is no more than Rupert Murdochs’, “please vote Republican channel”.
Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold. Sally Kohn Fox News
Sally Kohn, Fox News: Paul Ryan is a lying piece of shit………
GOP is SHIT
Did you learn your employment skills by watching TV? Well, you will not learn to understand what is going on in the world either by watching TV and you know it, you stupid son of a bitch.
In the clip Steve Doocy interviewed a guest who didn’t understand why News Corp. was getting so much attention now, when in fact other companies like certain financial institutions also experienced hacking problems. Maddow threw her hands up in the air and explained the difference, clarifying for the “apparently confused” guest (aka lying spin bastard) that “CitiGroup and Bank of America were the victims of the hackers – News Corp. is the hacker – that’s the difference!” Maddow also thought Rudy Giuliani was being disingenuous with his response on the scandal given his alleged ties to Murdoch. Yet Maddow’s astonishment over the Fox & Friends segment proves she has another clip to add to her personal “oh my God have you seen this video file.”
FOX News,The Monied Interests and the GOP are SHIT
Putting Republicans and their owned pukes in their place, that’s what it’s all about.
On last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert ripped the folks on Fox and Friends a new one, even with his sarcastic persona intact (although he almost lost it a few times). The target? Steve Doocy’s aggressive misquoting of President Obama in an interview with Mitt Romney, a statement which Doocy has now quasi-apologized for.
Republican Party Is SHIT
Ninety-eight major advertisers—including Ford and Geico—will no longer air spots on Premiere Networks’ ‘offensive’ programs. Insiders say the loss will rock right-wing talk radio. When big money starts shifting, it is a sign of a deeper tide that is difficult to undo, even if you are an industry icon like Rush Limbaugh. It is a sign that the times are changing. Let’s hope that what emerges is an evolution of the industry, away from stupid, predictable, and sometimes hateful hyperpartisanship and toward something a little smarter and more civil.
It’s Like a Drug: FOX “News”
Rupert Shitcrock’s, “Please Vote Republican Carnival Channel” or aka, “Bible Thumping Empty Headed Honkies for a Whiter Corporate America”, aka “FOX News” is not just wrong, it is a drug.
FOX “News” tells it’s cretinous followers: (1) what to think, (2) what they think is right, and that (3) it is a lie that all this “stuff” about history and politics and government is difficult to understand or “beyond” the average. In three easy steps, FOX followers are no longer at the mercy of those who think, study and do research: one, two, three, FOX followers are instantly truly well versed and can hold their own in any political discourse and know your well studied ideas are lies and misdirection.
This is a drug. Complete understanding without the work, easy peasy and I don’t have to feel uncomfortable, lost and confused. FOX News is more than just wrong. It has an approach to people who want to feel empowered, that sucks those people in and spits them out with feelings of grandeur even though they have been crippled by the process.
People who like FOX most often are those people who, mentally don’t want to or cannot - work for it. FOX followers are ignorant that the only gift the human race has been given - the ability to learn - is accompanied by hard work, struggle and great effort.
Politics, History and an understanding of the issues that concern us all takes: (1) Time, (2) Determination and (3) And an understanding that with time and determination a greater understanding will come. Understanding and learning are not something we do well in a country of folks who expect instant gratification and Rupert knows this and takes advantage of it. The US educational system is well funded but rates very low world wide. No one in America wants to work anymore and FOX news fans are a grand example of it.
