Another Fox News Freudian Graphic Slip

Fox News has become infamous for their habit of distorting and editing video to make their ideological point, but we should not forget to mention the Fox News graphics department, who today managed to make the Freudian slip of labeling Sen. Joe Lieberman as the Republican from Connecticut. This is the same department that once labeled Max Baucus a Republican and Mark Sanford a Democrat.

On Hannity Sarah Palin Lets Her Racist Flag Fly

Sarah Palin was on FNC’s Hannity tonight, where things took an interesting turn when she gave her opinion on the Ft. Hood shootings. Palin stated that the shootings were an act of terrorism, and she claimed that it could have been prevented if the military would have engaged in racial profiling.

Sarah Palin Floats Glenn Beck as a Possible 2012 Running Mate

In an interview with Newsmax, Sarah Palin floated Fox News host Glenn Beck’s name as her running mate for 2012. Palin said, “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way.” Apparently, Palin’s qualifications for a running mate include that they be a “hoot.”

Going Rogue: The Fallout Day One

Palin’s book. Sigh. Must we? I suppose we must (mentally kicking John McCain AGAIN!) Well, I started by compiling the growing list of untruths and flat out fiction, and what some are now calling “libel” …but the list is literally so long, it won’t fit even within the bounds of my rather lengthy articles. And frankly, I can only stomach so much. The lies are so petty, so empirically false, so blatant, so Orwellian, so juvenile, so transparent…It’s hard not to get lost in the Crazy.

Even Lou Dobbs Wouldn’t Vote for Sarah Palin in 2012

Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs was on the Today show this morning talking about the potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates. When it came to Sarah Palin, Dobbs said, “Would I consider voting her? Frankly based on what I have seen, personally no.” Things are looking bad for Sarah, when even Lou Dobbs says no thanks.

Palin Campaign Adviser Claims Sarah Made Up Parts of Her Book

During a report on the NBC Nightly News, Andrea Mitchell dropped an interesting little nugget about Sarah Palin’s new book. According to her adviser, Nicolle Wallace, Sarah Palin never took notes on their conversations, or called her to fact check anything. Wallace called the conversations in the book fabrications.

Coat Hangers: a Symbolic Protest Against the Stupak Amendment

Selecting singularly vivid iconography – the coat hanger – as in coat hanger abortion, CredoAction launched a campaign to persuade the 20 formerly pro-choice Democratic Congressmen who voted Yes on the Stupak Pitts Amendment to change their minds, by sending coat hangers to those Democratic House members who voted to restrict access to abortion in the healthcare bill along with their petition.

CNN Finally decided that Lou Dobbs’ Race Baiting is not Journalism

Although Lou Dobbs was a strong critic of the conduct of war in Iraq by the Bush Administration and frequently appeared on Bill Maher’s show on HBO, his constant self promotion and race-baiting ‘advocacy’ is not journalism, and was definitely beneath the standards of CNN. Let’s hope that Nancy Grace soon follows Dobbs out the door.

Why Isn’t The Media Criticizing Sarah Palin for Banning CBS?

Remember the weeks of indigent outrage in both the right wing and mainstream media when the Obama administration said that Fox News is not a news organization? It turns out that Sarah Palin did a little blackballing of her own, when she banned CBS from covering her resignation speech. Where is the criticism of Palin?

Hillary Clinton Offers Diplomacy over Coffee with Palin

Sec. of State Hillary Clinton was on NBC’s Meet The Press today. At the end of the interview she was asked about Sarah Palin’s comment in her book about the possibility of sitting down for a cup of coffee with Clinton. She said, “I’m ready to have a cup of coffee. Maybe I can make a case on some of the issues that we disagree on.”

Glenn Beck Continues to Spread Lies About the Healthcare Bill

Glenn Beck was on FNC’s The O’Reilly Factor on Friday, where he continued to spread lies and falsehoods about the healthcare reform bill. Beck is still claiming that under the bill, people who don’t buy insurance will face jail time. This is not true. The penalty for not buying insurance is an additional tax. No one will go to jail.

Jon Stewart Bids Buena Suerte to Lou Dobbs

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart perfectly summed up the lack of logic behind Lou Dobbs’ stated reason for resigning when he said, “So in order to positively contribute to a better understanding of the issues of our day, you must leave your nightly television show devoted to understanding the issues of our day.” Check out the video.

Sarah Palin Accuses the AP of Lying About Her Book

A grumpy Sarah Palin posted a note on her Facebook page which claims that the AP’s report on the contents on the book is erroneous. It doesn’t seem to matter to her that the AP has actually read the book, because she said, “And as is expected, the AP and a number of subsequent media outlets are erroneously reporting the contents of the book.”

The Real Reasons Why CNN Dumped Lou Dobbs

As dramatic as Lou Dobbs’ immediate resignation was on CNN last night, the whole story of the deteriorated Dobbs/CNN relationship is starting to emerge today. Dobbs was told by CNN to do an objective newscast, or he could leave CNN. In short Dobbs could either clean up his act or hit the road. He chose to leave.

Chuck Norris Goes Full Right Wing Nut Job on the Healthcare Bill

On FNC’s Your World with Neil Cavuto, Chuck Norris launched into a doozy of a conspiracy theory about healthcare reform. Norris said, “If this thing passes the government will have the right to come into our home, and regulate how we raise our children.” To his credit, host Neil Cavuto wasn’t buying any of Walker: Texas Nutjob’s theories.
