It’s no surprise that it didn’t take Fox News long to start living up to its new moniker and begin fabricating stories so soon after the midterm elections.
The latest horse manure from Murdoch’s malignancies exploded over the conservative airwaves trashing President Obama’s trip to India.
Out front with the insipid remarks that the trip was going to cost taxpayers $200 million a day was the human Tasmanian devil herself, GOP Minnesota Congresswoman Michele “They’re coming to take me away, ha! ha!” Bachmann.
Doing her one better was the fascista fatso himself, Rush to Judgment, who flatulated that the whole India trip was going to cost $2 billion. You know, what Fox Fabricated News, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and contributions from foreign corporations will spend to get a Republican in the White House in 2012.
The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed, eh, Goebbels breath?
A Fox headline could’ve read:
“What price diplomacy? Obama spends millions of your tax dollars partying in New Delhi.”
Now one could only image how the Foxholes are going to run with the prez dancing with inner city children in India to traditional music.
“Obama goes Bollywood, dances in India while people are still out of work in America. Something to celebrate, Jesus Hater.”
Foxholes and Rush know that the GOP tea baggers have no answers on how to fix the economy. And forget about jobs. The conservative media and the party it controls owe their allegiance to foreign corporations that contributed money to Republican candidates so their countries can benefit from our outsourced jobs. At a much cheaper rate.
Ironic, ain’t it? The paranoids are concerned about illegal aliens coming into the country and taking away our jobs because they can work for less, when a political party has outsourced our jobs to foreign countries whose people will be forced to work for diddley squat.
The GOP is more interested in making sure Obama is a one-term president, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted this a week before the midterms. That means no votes for everything the president proposes. Even if, per chance to dream, one of Obama’s ideas could work to turn the economy around.
Why would the GOP want to get rid of this guy? He’s putty in their hands. They walk all over him like so much pavement.
It’s just like MSNBC suspending Keith Olbermann for contributing to Democratic candidates. MSNBC is clearly Obama’s network. Justifiably so, since that network is like Obama himself. Olbermann was suspended because MSNBC was afraid of being criticized for being hypocritical. Just like Obama, who got rid of Van Jones and Shirley Sherrod because they were controversial. And in Sherrod’s case, not only weren’t all the facts in, they were lies. But no drama Obama didn’t want to make waves. Oh, no.
MSNBC and Obama still don’t get it: Hypocrasy is —- media cliche alert! -— the new normal.
Fox has been trying to get rid of Olbermann for years — he’s the proverbial thorn in their side. Ironic that he attacked Fox for contributing to candidates in plain sight on air. Loser for Nevada Senate Sharron Angle bragged about going on Sean Hannity’s show and leaving with a $5,000 contribution. Christine “Wicked Witchcraft” O’Donnelll, who lost her Senate bid in Delaware, said, matter-of-factly, that she has Hannity “in my back pocket.”
Try to get that image out of your dirty little mind, Baba O’Reilly.
Contributing to GOP candidates over at MSNBC is subject to “indefinite suspension.”
Over at Fox, giving money to GOP candidates is known by another term: “mandatory payroll deduction.”
Olbermann is back from suspension on Tuesday. A few days before he got busted he put his “Worst Persons in the World” segment —- easiily the most popular part of his program —- on hiatus. He did so because somehow Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s rally in D.C. (which was Shakespearean only in the fact that it was much ado about nothing) made him think that he wasn’t living up to his potential as a journalist.
The “Countdown” host is pompous at times and fancies himself the reincarnation of Edward R. Murrow. But he — along with Rachel Maddow — is the remedy common sense needs to take occasionally from the purloined pretense of Glenn Beck.
Olbermann needs to bring back his “Worst Persons in the World” segment when he returns.
He doesn’t owe his audience an apology.
But it wouldn’t hurt if he made himself that night’s number one “Worst Person in the World.”
