There’s so much going on, but this week’s Friday Fox Follies starts with How “Fox & Friends” became the most repugnant show on Fox News, which is saying a lot considering the competition.
Last week, in Charleston Church Charade, FFF reported on the Fox and Friends rush to call the massacre an attack on religion. That’s why yesterday morning, I was shocked — shocked, I tells ya — listening as Fox & Friends Defends Hypothesis That Charleston Massacre Was Attack On Christianity, Not About Race. Watch them get angry and lie to defend their previous lies:
Who is to blame? Fox & Friends Blame Their Ridiculous Charleston Reaction On Liberals and Fox & Friends’ stunning hypocrisy: “We were never told the nature of [Dylann Roof’s] bias”. Here’s the thing. Maybe it’s true that they were never told the nature of Dylann Roof’s bias, but, if so, they should blame their own news department for keeping it a secret.
My news-gathering resources are a drop in the ocean compared to the money Fox “News” spends. Yet, AT THE VERY SAME TIME I was hearing those Foxy Friends call the Charleston Massacre a War on Christianity, I was reading internet news sites quoting Roof saying Blacks had to go before he started shooting.
If I knew that, why didn’t Doocy, Kilmeade, and Hasselbeck know it? Why did the Fox “News” Channel continue to blame religion long after Fox and Friends went off the air that day and only started calling it a racist attack when it could no longer ignore the clear evidence?
As always the best take on almost any story is when The Daily Show Trashes Fox News’ Hypocrisy In Wake Of Charleston Shooting. Watch:
Fox “News” embarrasses itself every single time it covers issues of Race, and Charleston was no exception. It’s like looking into a fun house mirror, reflected and distorted through a prism of White Privilege:
Fr. Jonathan Morris Uses Charleston Tragedy To Hate Monger About Al Sharpton • Fox News Gets Desperate and Calls The Confederate Flag The Flag Of The Democratic Party • Fox Regular Kevin Jackson Blames Black Liberals For Charlotte Shooting
In the “Spin Like A Top Zone” there was An Epic Clash Between O’Reilly And Kirsten Powers On Race: ‘How Many Black Friends Do You Have?!’: Kirsten Powers, O’Reilly Blow Up over Race, as Loofah Lad refuses to let her talk. Watch how differently he treats his 2 guests:
When he realized it was nothing but White folk talking about Black folk, Larry Wilmore Superimposes Himself into O’Reilly’s Shoutfest with Kirsten Powers. Hilarity ensued:
After he realized the world was laughing at him again, Bill O’Reilly Declares War On ‘Anti-Fox Defamers.’ It makes me laugh when O’Reilly Tears Into ‘Race-Baiters,’ Fox Haters: ‘You Want a War? You Got a War!’ As a long-time Fox Hater, I say, “Come and get me! I’ve already survived The Johnny Dollar Wars!”
No Fox “News” personality can Bait the Race like Hannity. Just ask Hal from North Bergen. So, after Jon Stewart Hilariously Exposes The ‘Fox-Abetes’ Illness Of Exploiting Charleston, Hannity Selectively Edits Jon Stewart’s Criticism And Whitewashes GOP History Of Racism. Then Hannity Goes Full-Stupid: Why Ban Confederate Flags If You Can Buy Rap Music? No wonder Cenk Uygur Blasts Hannity’s Comparison of Confederate Flag and Rap Music.
PASSAGES: Our Long National Nightmare Ends: Fox News Dumps Sarah Palin and Deems Her Irrelevant because Palin Never Lived Up to Expectations on Fox; Network Break-Up Comes 2 Years Too Late. As Sarah Palin And Fox News Say Buh-Bye – Again, Politico says Sarah Palin is the REO Speedwagon of Politics.
Also being kicked to the curb: Fox News Parts Ways with Bob Beckel. Fox News Cuts Bob Beckel: ‘We Couldn’t Hold The Five Hostage to One Man’s Personal Issues,’ which is a terrible way to treat an addict in recovery. Even Bob Beckel ‘Baffled’ by Fox News Statement About His Departure. This as Anthony Weiner Nominates Himself to Replace Bob Beckel on The Five.
Contrary to last week’s news, which counteracted the previous week’s news, Roger Ailes Re-Signs with Fox News, Will ‘Jointly Report’ to Murdoch and Sons.
Then there’s the time an Asinine Fox And Friends Publicity Stunt Nearly Kills A Man On Live TV (VIDEO) as Fox News Host Hits West Point Drummer With Axe In Lumberjack Battle. It was Fox & Friends Co-Host Pete Hegseth [who] Hits Man with Axe when Fox News host throws an axe at someone on live TV because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
I was hit by an axe while performing a drum solo live on National TV…..words I never imagined saying! This happened last Sunday and I have been reluctant to post but starting to receive inquiries from concerned family and friends. I am thankful to God that the double sided blade only hit broadside on the outer elbow with significant impact and a couple of cuts as it fell along my wrist. It could have been much worse or fatal. Focusing on full physical and emotional recovery.</p>Posted by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/jeff.prosperie”>Jeff Prosperie</a> on Saturday, June 20, 2015</blockquote></div></div>]
To quote Bob Marley: If you are a big tree, we are a small axe.
