Noted Constitution defenders Fox News refuse to be inconvenienced by the actual Constitution.
Watch Jon Stewart kick Fox News right in the face.

- Might be crazy.
Well, I think we know what Fox News can do with that money they saved by cutting loose Sarah Palin.
I rarely watch Fox News, so I didn’t see this. Do they really think such a coin would actually be made, or was this a rhetorical statement poking fun at the absurdity of the idea? The latter is okay. I can’t believe even Fox would be that dumb.
I have found, historically, FOX News is not the home of intricate satire. Now, I do think THIS conversation may have happened:
Producer: So there appears to be a law that allows the President to mint a coin in any denomination as long as it is platinum. So he could get past the debt ceiling block by approving the minting of coins as debts come due.
Show Writer: So a coin made of that much platinum?
Producer: No. No. No. Like any coin. The weird law that exists just says that the only coins he can mint need to be made from platinum. It was meant for commemorative coins but the law was written poorly.
Show Writer: Oh! I get it.
Show Writer: …
Producer: We could have fun with the idea of a coin made from that much platinum.
Show Writer: Yeah. But it could confuse our extremely low information voters on the intricacies of a complicated issue.
Show Writer: So we’re going to do it?
Producer: Oh yeah.
Yup. Get it together, conservatives. Step one, accept that Barack Obama isn’t the devil.
A one minute video from me. I decided to watch some Fox News today to see how things are going “in the bubble” (copyright Bill Maher) on election day. It was worth it for this!
Neil Cavuto learning that when one is faking outrage the end of your sentence can sneak right up on ya’.
David Webb, who apparently wishes we were more “extremely chauvinistic or nationalistic and marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.”
Vocabulary is a tricky mistress.
It is a great insight into this kind of idiot’s mind. All his life he has heard people call a certain type of faux patriotism “jingoism” with disdain in their voices and has assumed they must hate all patriotism.
Being stupid is hard.
Fox News wins the prize for the largest bar to represent 4% ever.
We report. You decide.
Not The Onion of the Day: This is a screengrab from today’s Fox Nation story on President Obama’s support of gay marriage. It has since been changed to read: “Obama flip flops on gay marriage.” Still a fail.
Chris Brown and Fox News in a feud, hopefully a feud that will humiliate and destroy both parties involved.
But at the moment, Andy Levy is my hero. :-)
Yeah, the vitriolic opposition to President Obama has NOTHING to do with race. Nothing at all.
I wonder if the history books in fifty years will write about how one of the reasons we stayed in a recession for so long was because some politicians were comfortable exploiting unexpressed racism for their own political gain instead of working with President Obama on solutions. And how some media types were very happy to exploit and fan the flames of that racism for profit. And that other supposedly “objective” media types were happy to allow ignorance to flourish unchallenged just because they lived in fear of being called “biased.”
I’ll gladly be biased in favor of intelligence over ignorance.
And thanks, FOX News for redirecting my anger today away from the corporations sitting on BILLIONS of dollars of capital who refuse to act like the “Job Creators” we are told they are because you have convinced them to hold onto their money until we can get someone in there who will REALLY lower your taxes.
Why aren’t the smart, conservative voices in this country allowed to be heard as much as the loud ignorant ones?
And that question is rhetorical. I understand the country in which I live.
