The preposterous, the ridiculous, the manipulative.

 

Rupert Murdock is not a friend of humanity. This brainchild of his, ridiculous as it stands, is poisonning the whole North American consensus. In cases like that the doctor recommends satire and ridicule.

Post your favorite clips and newsbits here. Of course satirical material is more than welcome. The Onion, Daily Show, Colbert Report...

From TPM - the toxic Fox Effect


More on the Fox Effect, Part 3


JOSH MARSHALL – APRIL 21, 2014, 2:18 PM EDT8044

But back to the Fox News Effect, my mother has always been a huge Oprah fan, I think pretty much since she saw the movie “The Color Purple”. She read a lot of her book recommendations and would watch her show religiously. So I was shocked last week when I mentioned something about Oprah and she said flatly “I don’t like her”.

After a moment, I realized that this must have come about from the trashing ofOprah from Fox News because of her endorsement of Obama in the 2008 election. I tried to press her on the issue asking why but she wouldn’t go into detail other than “I don’t care for her anymore”.

It is like she thought Oprah had betrayed her. And that is when I came to the exact same conclusion as your previous commenter. Fox News is absolutely toxic. You take an older generation that grew up watching the new as the be all end all source of information and truth, and now inject the “entertainment” factor of slick talking hosts with a political agenda, and you wind up with people like my mother who can inexplicably turn against someone they have respected and adored for 30 years simply because of the hatred and bile presented on Fox News is taken at face value. It seems the only purpose of the Channel is to drive people to fear and hate that which they don’t know. I wish it weren’t so and I only hope that the trends of younger generations being more tolerant will continue to grow.

Leader of the Fox Gang


by digby

This new book about Roger Ailes sounds like it's going to give him some major heartburn. This excerpt is particularly telling:

Ailes said that if he were president, he would solve the immigration problem by sitting the president of Mexico down and giving him a stern talking-to: "Your country is corrupt. You can now only take thirty percent of what the people earn instead of seventy percent. If you don't do that, I'll send the CIA down there to kill you." 

He had been careful to moderate his immigration position in public. "If I'm going to risk my life to run over the fence to get into America, I want to win. I think Fox News will articulate that," he told The New Republic a few months earlier. But Ailes told [Philipstown, NY supervisor Richard] Shea that as president he would send Navy SEAL trainees to the border as part of a certification program: "I would make it a requirement that you would have to personally kill an illegal immigrant coming into the country. They would have to bring home a dead body." [The Loudest Voice in the Room, pg 392]

People have made the comparison between the conservative movement and the Mafia or criminal gangs like the Crips and the Bloods before but I always thought it was a little bit silly. I was wrong.

There are lots of other, similar excerpts at the link. How about this one:

About a year after the attacks, Bill Clinton went for lunch at News Corp with Murdoch and his top executives. Murdoch's communications chief, Gary Ginsberg, who was a former lawyer in the Clinton White House and a key Murdoch emissary to powerful Democrats, brokered the meeting. Talk turned to Ground Zero and plans for reconstruction. The executives around the room offered ideas. When it was Ailes's turn, the conversation halted. "Roger said this insane thing," one person in the room recalled. "He was talking about rebuilding the towers and he said, 'We should fill the last ten floors with Muslims so they never do it again." [The Loudest Voice in the Room, pg 264-265]

He's as kooky as Donald Trump.

Fox News Pundit Shuts Down Network’s Hysteria Over Benghazi: ‘It’s ...

BY IGOR VOLSKY ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 AT 10:30 AM

juanwilliams2Fox News’ Juan Williams tersely dismissed the GOP’s year-long effort to implicate the Obama administration in a so-called “cover-up” of the attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sep. 11, 2012, telling off a panelist who suggested that the debate over the incident was still ongoing.

During a heated discussion on Fox News Sunday, former Bush administration official Karl Rove regurgitated GOP claims that “someone constructed a lie” that the incident resulted from “a spontaneous reaction to a video no one saw” and suggested Obama refused to scramble necessary military assets to save the U.S. personnel. Conservative commentator Brit Hume agreed, adding, “the list of questions that remain unanswered to this day are what make this a legitimate topic of conversation. I’m sorry to say this is not over.”

Williams disputed these charges point by point and explained that months of Republican-led Congressional hearings had been unable to uncover any evidence of a cover up. “It’s gone, baby. It’s in your head. That’s the only place,” he added. Watch it:

John McCain must have been beaten as a child. The only thing he knows is war.

Comment by doone on September 3, 2013 at 6:27pm

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) pushed back hard Tuesday against a Fox News host who raised concerns over a Syrian rebel's use of a ubiquitous Islamic phrase. 

McCain was making an appearance on "Fox & Friends" to build his case for supporting the rebels who are fighting the Assad regime in Syria when co-host Brian Kilmeade showed what he said was alarming video footage. The clip showed an explosion in a Syrian city with a presumed rebel fighter heard chanting, "Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!"

"I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said.

A clearly annoyed McCain quickly hit back.

"You have a problem with that? Would you have a problem with an American Christian saying ‘thank God, thank God’?” McCain said. "That’s what they’re saying. Come on. Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you that they are moderates. I know them and I've been with them. For someone to say 'Allahu Akbar' is about as offensive as someone saying 'thank God.'" 

Kilmeade quickly changed the subject after McCain's retort.

Fox News Host Calls Obama ‘Race-Baiter In Chief’ After Trayvon Martin Statement


TWEET THIS STORY

3:00 PM EDT, FRIDAY JULY 19, 2013

A Fox News contributor wasted little time in blasting President Barack Obama over a statement he made Friday on the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

Moments after Obama's remarks, Todd Starnes, host of the radio program "Fox News & Commentary," took to his Facebook page to brand Obama the "Race-Baiter in Chief. Starnes called the President's statement "reprehensible."

Last month, Starnes defended Paula Deen as she drew charges of racism, arguing that the media "hates" the celebrity chef because "most of them don't eat meat."

The Ratings Mirage

Why Fox has higher ratings--when CNN has more viewers

Conventional industry wisdom is that CNN viewers tune in briefly to catch up on news and headlines, while Fox viewers watch longer for the opinion and personality-driven programming. Because the smaller total number of Fox viewers are watching more hours, they show up in the ratings as a higher average number of viewers.

CNN regularly claims a cume about 20 percent higher than Fox 's (Deseret Morning News , 1/12/04). For instance, in April 2003, during the height of the fighting in Iraq, CNN 's cume was significantly higher than Fox 's: 105 million viewers tuned into CNN compared to 86 million for Fox (Cablefax , 4/30/03). But in the same period, the ratings reported by most media outlets had Fox in the lead, with an average of 3.5 million viewers to CNN 's 2.2 million.

More here

I consider both FOX and CNN to be nothing other than entertainment so I don't watch them. I thought CNN was good when it first came out and remained relevant into the 90's. Now it reminds me of tv programs that report on movie stars such as Entertainment Tonight.
