Fox News Freaks Out And Claims Torture Report Is A Conspiracy To Distract From Obamacare


obama fox news northwestern

Like clockwork, Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are in full paranoid conspiracy mode and claiming that the release of the Senate’s report on torture is a conspiracy to distract from Obamacare.



Fox’s Jesse Watters went right into the conspiracy, “I don’t want to know about it. I think people do nasty things in the dark, especially after a terrorist attack. I find it ironic that they’re dropping this report on the same day Gruber’s testifying to know that out of the front pages. But I mean the Senate Democrats, they’re just trying to get one last shot at Bush before they go into the minority. And they didn’t even interview any of the CIA interrogators for their report. It’s kind of like how Rolling Stone does their reporting. They only get one side.”

Watters completed the paranoid trifecta by working the debunked IRS scandal into his rant.

Rush Limbaugh also pushed the conspiracy on his radio show, “The Democrats, the main story, the lead story today, by design, is the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture, dumping on the Bush administration on “Jonathan Gruber Day.” Gruber, what’s happening out there is being dwarfed by what is happening with the release of how rotten and horrible this stinking country was when George Bush was president. And it still is, because Obama still hasn’t been able to close Club Gitmo where all the torture went on, and may still be going on, even though Obama may not know about it and thinks he’s tried to stop it.”

The fact that the Gruber hearing was going to be a circus and a farce was visible from miles away. The hearing was the Republicans last chance to push their Obamacare lies and conspiracies. Right-wing media like Fox News and Limbaugh can’t handle reality that the majority of Americans aren’t buying what they are trying to sell on the ACA.

The Affordable Care Act is in the midst of a very successful second signup period. Republicans were trying to derail the law with a sideshow hearing on Jonathan Gruber’s comments about the intelligence of voters. Gruber’s comments didn’t deserve a committee hearing, but Darrell Issa couldn’t resist gaveling in the Obama conspiracy circus one last time.

When the American people show no interest in their B.S., Republicans cry conspiracy. The Fox News/Limbaugh freakout was more evidence that the non-reality based conservative media can’t handle any kind of truth.

  1. Ha! Didn’t distract me in the least. I got signed up on ACA this morning, even while I was following the news on CNN.

  2. To distract from the fact that Obamacare works? That every scenario of apocalypse predicted by Republicans didn’t materialize?

    Sounds to me like conservatives are trying to distract the rest of us from true facts…

  3. There has to be a way to legally forbid these disgusting trolls to be able to spread their lies and hatred. FOX and their bunch of amateur wanna-be’s wouldn’t know news or truth it fell on them and crushed them. (Even though it would be a blessing for the rest of us) And Limbaugh, that disgusting piece of crap, he’s on a down hill slide to hell, so we don’t have to worry to much about him.

  4. Ha! So what if it is a diversion! Two can play that game!

    Benghazi!! Isis!! Ebola!! Benghazi!! Isis!! Ebola!!

    If it diverts the rwnj’s attention…so be it!

  5. All day long I have been reading the redacted version in bits and pieces and I have to say in this condensed version we should be ashamed as a country and I am only about a third through it.

    It makes one wonder what’s in the 5000 pages they didn’t release? We are no better than the Japanese Imperial Army, the Gestapo, the North Korean People’s Army, and the KGB in our moral depravity.

    But it brings everything in focus on being a real American. Murder by the state of unarmed citizens. Racism. The treatment of women etc… We are a nation of torturers. That is who we are. Because even if we didn’t agree we went along and that makes us just as guilty.

    So anyone who still believes there’s a “debate” over whether or not the United States approved torture is an idiot, coward and I have no time for them. There is no debate. We all are guilty

  6. There should’ve been hearings and investigations on the “death panels” wrought by Republican governors who didn’t accept the Medicaid expansion for their states, instead of a hearing about what a economist said about either the American voters, or Congress, of which I’m not quite sure, but what happened to his right of “free speech” to cite his opinion of whoever he was criticizing?

  7. And to think brain dead Americans defend their hard hitting reporting and analysis

    Fox News wunderkind Andrea Tantaros on Torturepalooza:

    “The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome. We’ve closed the book on torture, and we’ve stopped doing it. And the reason they want to have this discussion is not to show how awesome we are. This administration wants to have this discussion to show us how we’re not awesome.”

    We’re just awesome baby!!!!

  8. Limpballs can’t get his info straight, Did he ever heard of
    Abau grab? Many I’m not spelling it right, but that was were most of the atrocities happened..Have another weed.
