For me there was no doubt about the high point of Wednesday morning's election coverage. At about four o’clock I flicked over to Fox to see how the good folks there were managing their grief. I was greeted by what – even by Fox standards – was an amazing sight. Karl Rove had become embroiled in a heated debate with his own network about their decision to call Ohio and the Presidency for Barack Obama. It was too early, he said. There were still lots of votes to be counted. They had to be right, not first.
A clear and present danger to the socialist party , Fox news , which = Hannity . Greta is a moderate conservative and that's it . Throw in a few conservative guests . Their machine won't rest until Rush and the internet is dead .
You know NOW they will be going after FOX and Rush and Sean and anyone else on the right. The MSM and the administration are going to try to silence ALL on the right side. Count on it. Beginnings are here!
LMAO!! It's the exact OPPOSITE! The MSM is doing everything they can to "kill" the Republican Party. Fox news is a single cable news network trying to present BOTH sides--and if it isn't "powerful" enough to get Republicans elected, it can't be powerful enough to "kill" the party.
Soros and his bazillions of front groups are killing the GOP ... They create a false narrative and the rest of his paid patsys make it front and center..scream it enuf and voila .. Bozo gets a do over.
Nationally their 'Fair and Balanced' TV gives the Liberals and Ds another platform and a larger audience.[not counting the biases of their reporters and commentators]
I have NOT put Fox or any TV news on since the election ....... may never do so again ......... have been getting my news from internet [but not Fox internet].
**IMPORTANT Fox internet webpage has changed their method of sending e-mail of articles, so that you can no longer do so WITHOUT signing up with Google or Yahoo e-mail service ......... talk about 'personal privacy issues' and network services 'TRACKING' the articles you choose to save or send to friends.
Fox News is a great media outlet since there are so many that are bias...overtly progressive,liberal,and leftist...more so post-election. Karl Rove did a great job and I have confidence in him. America has moved to the left of center in the last two elections. Citizens are more immoral and careless.
The way I see it, Fox News, though not perfect, at least acts as a counterbalance to all the alphabets which are not above spiking stories like Benghazi. The Republican party isn't dead, at least not the conservative segment. There is a healthy conversation going on about what unites us and how conservatism can apply to society. What we saw in the TEA party rallies and the Romney/Ryan gatherings is not a fad, but a true grassroot movement. The other side is unified by a gimme spirit that wants to soak the rich (at least the non-progressive rich) whether or not it is a viable way to deal with the real problem of national debt. When they start running out of other people's money, they'll start going after each other.
No, Fox News isn't killing the Republican party. Instead, it is the Soros-led progressives of the Democratic party that has killed politics in America by making presidential elections hereafter about who can bribe Takers with more goodies paid for by fewer and fewer Makers.
No, the inside the beltway republican establishment is killing the GOP.
This establishment has given us every POTUS nominee since Reagan, and the only one who was moderately successful (Bush 43) greatly expanded the federal govt. with his policies. These actions, coupled with the poorly managed overreach into Iraq, led to GOP fatigue and gave us oblamer.
Every single one of these establishment types must go. They have a long and proven record of mediocrity and failure. Enough.
Many Brits have no comprehension of American politics. Two notable exceptons are Peter Hitchens (conservative brother of the late Christopher) and Melanie Philips.
Re the Rove episode: Darn, I missed this, because shortly after Ohio was called for Obama, I shut off the tv. Guess I could find it on youtube (if I can bring myself to re-live any of that dreadful night).
How out of touch is the GOP you ask? They ran Tommy Thompson for senate in Wisconsin. Michele Bachmann barely hung on in Minnesota. This will surely be her last term. Allen West was ousted in Florida an a fine conservative intellect like Mia Love from Utah could not get elected. While all that was happening JJ Jackson Jr was reelected from his `hospital room` and Allen Grayson is now back in Congress.
We are truly a one party nation. Romney won the heartland, nothing else. The big population coastal states wan everything for free an are getting it - until the producers stop producing that is. See GreeceSpain, etc.
Thanks, I though it was aided by idiots sitting in the lead of easy senate wins who decided to pipe up with the stupidest comments about rape and abortion that I've ever heard in my lifetime. That and a campaign that had a soundbite of something like. 'I'm going to repeal Obamacare.' instead of we need practical reform of healthcare for all Americans, including congress. Oh, and fumbling the ball over blatant, effective, voter fraud since JFK 'beat' Nixon in 1960.
Pope Francis has been named 2013 Person of the Year by Time magazine - edging out NSA whistleblower and fugitive Edward Snowden into second place. Pope Francis, 76, who was elected in March to lead the world´s 1.2 billion Catholics, was announced as the winner this morning by Time magazine editor Nancy Gibbs on the Today show - no doubt bringing a sigh of relief to those who feared that singer Miley Cyrus of twerking infamy could be propelled to first place by a swell of internet votes. The other five final contenders in the running for the prestigious honor
A series of intimate behind-the-scenes photos aboard Air Force One have revealed the moment George W. Bush proudly showed off his artwork to Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama - and they look impressed. Other images reveal him sharing a joke with the president and casually chatting ahead of dinner as they flew to South Africa for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service. The luxury aircraft hosted a political reunion on Monday, as the two Presidents and three first ladies - Laura Bush, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton - were on board. The Obamas retired to the President´s office and regular cabin at
When I was in high school, I joined the ROTC initially because I was attracted to the uniforms. I figured they would provide an opportunity to escape the constant berating by fellow students owing to my outdated clothing. I was fascinated with the guns and became an excellent marksman, winning several marksmanship awards. I also led a drill team, which was very advanced with the art of disassembling and reassembling military rifles in record time. I advanced through the ranks, eventually becoming the city’s ROTC executive officer and was offered a scholarship to West Point. I gained great respect for
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
