Fox News Just Makes Stuff Up

Most people know I’m not a huge fan of Fox News, at least in part because Fox News is no great fan of mine. Al Franken and Eric Alterman are rather detailed their explanation of just how conservative Fox is (it’s like the tower of Pizza leaning toward Texas; actually, it’s like the tower layed down in Texas). But you’d have to figure that even conservatives would have trouble keeping a straight face while making up lines like this: “‘Didn’t my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!’ Kerry said Friday.”

Ernest Miller is bogging about it over at The Importance Of…. More here, too: Is Fox News literally making stuff up out of whole cloth about John Kerry?

So, Fox went farther out on the limb than we expected and even they blanched at it. In the meantime, the rest of us can look at what seems to make Fox’s viewers tick (or, at least, what Fox thinks makes their viewers tick): sexual insecurities, abortion-rhetoric, fear of women, respect for authority/distaste for attacks on Bush, and fear of the Democratic ideals. Yup, I guess that pretty much explains why I’m a liberal.

  2. If the three US National Guardsmen on Border Security are guilty of any assist to smuggle in or otherwise help illegals enter the USA…direct the maximum punishment by law!

    You can tell the world who I am (AMERICAN), and I will turn in any illegal immigrant I come up against.

  3. Can’t get on BYA as you advertise – would like to ask “Why not more stories from Iraq about the good things going on over there – once in great while you have a story but we know that there are good things i.e. – schools going, electric plants, many families living better lives, what kind of churches are there that are making a go of it, business that are making a go of it etc……, thanks for you answer.

  4. WHY ARE DEMOS SO ANGRY ALL THE TIME – DO THEY NOT LIKE THEMSELVES – HOW CAN PEOP;E LIVE THAT KIND OF LIFE. IF THEY FEEL THAT WAY HOW CAN THEY EVER GOVERN THE COUNTRY – ITS SCARY.FPMFBG.

  5. I heard in passing on Tv(not sure what news channel it was on) To talk to your children about foreign attacks. Showed children talking to parents about what they should do in case of attack. Is this on regularly or just on late Tv?

  6. I was watching your show today as I normaly do and discussion was with someone named Susan. You posed the question to her regarding the monetary assistance by the Califonia Legislature amd nothing being done to support our troops returning from Iraq/Afghanistan. I am a retired
    veteran and I take offense to her deamenor regarding her stant on this issue. I am sick and tired of some beaucratic individual who won’t stand up and tell the illegals, YOU AIN’T GETTING ANY MONEY, YOU DON’T DESERVE ANY MONEY AND IF YOU WANT MONEY, GO BACK TO MEXICO AND ASK YOUR PRESIDENT TO GIVE YOU MONEY..i FOUGHT FOR MY COUNTRY AND WE (THE VETERANS)M OF THIS GREAT NATION DESERVE 100 TIMES MORE THAN WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.. i GU3ESS THE GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA CAN NOW SAY THAT HE IS TRULY THE TERMINATOR WHEN HE ALLOWS POLITICANS IN HIS STATE TO GIVE OUR RIGHTS TO ILLEGALS. IF WERE IN A POSITION TO DO SO, I WOULD SEND HIS AUSTRIAN BUTT BACK TO EUROPE WHERE HE BELONGS.

    PS: And I think I speak for a great number of veterans especially the Vietnam returnees who got nothing in return for their efforts in the Asian part of this world.

  7. I like Fox News. I watch is every day and keep it on often to watch over and over.
    Get off their backs, you are just jealous of Fox for doing a great job for the American people.

    Thanks Fox.

  8. You are a liberal because you have no brain. Ask the New York Times What you think. You will find their opinion of page one. The actual news is on page 14 or so.

  9. You are a liberal because you can not or chose not to think. Ask the New York Times what you think. You will find their opinion on page one. The actual news is somewhere beyond page 16. Maybe that is why they are going out of business. Go figure!
