Friday Fox Follies was sure this week’s column would be a slam dunk after Michelle Obama’s forceful speech on race at Tuskegee University, aka Speechifying While Black™. But then her husband had to open his big mouth: Obama Swipes at Fox: Pushing Narrative That Poor People Are ‘Leeches’. No biggie. Add a few words here and there and — voila! — an All Obama!!! All The Time!!! column. However, that plan was dashed as Conservatives Quickly Try to Turn Stephanopoulos into the ‘Next Brian Williams.’
Last week Tucker Carlson proved he isn’t a real journalist (which may be why he’s on Fox). This week he proved he’s running a frat house, a topic in the news lately for systemic sexism, not to mention racism.

There’s nothing Friday Fox Follies likes least than to repeat a topic from last week because new jokes are hard to find. No matter. When Bill O’Reilly Goes Ballistic On Eric Engberg, David Corn, Calls Bob Schieffer A ‘Plagiarist’ this reporter must follow the truth, no matter where it goes.
During Monday night’s broadcast of The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly got bent out of shape over the amount of praise Jon Stewart has received from national media figures since The Daily Show host announced he is departing at the end of the year.
CNN boss Jeff Zucker said that he is interested in having a conversation with Jon Stewart about joining CNN after he leaves The Daily Show. The idea of a Jon Stewart to CNN move should terrify Fox News.
During Monday night’s broadcast of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart addressed the recent revelation that NBC News anchor Brian Williams had made false claims about taking rocket fire during a helicopter ride in Iraq in 2003.
Now we now know for certain what station Bobby “The Party of Stupid” Jindal watches. Jindal’s repeating of Fox’s debunked “no-go zones” myth is a perfect example of how crap spewed on Fox is repeated at dinner tables across this entirely too-credulous country.
At the beginning of his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart paid tribute to the staff of French newspaper Charlie Hebdo after a terrorist attack on the paper’s office claimed the lives of 12 people.
