Does Fox News now have an All-Amnesty lineup? Looks like it. Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have now fallen in line behind World Citizen Rupert Murdoch’s support of ”sweeping, generous immigration reform,” including a “path to citizenship.” Karl Rove was always on board, of course. What about Fox News’ viewers? Are they going to go along like sheep? They now have no network that represents their perspective on what seems to be a key issue for Obama’s second term. Is it time for a new Fox? (Wouldn’t it be time for a new Fox anyway?
Comments: And just who would start this enterprise?? Fox hasn´t gone completely to the dark side, but they are well on their way. Still, they are better than any other cable news channel out there.
The whole discussion about immigration reform is stupid. The time is rapidly approaching when immigrants simply won´t want to come to the U.S. because things won´t be any better than they are where they already live. No jobs, inferior health care, a slum to live in, who wants it?
This is where Glenn Beck was supposed to go!!! The Tea Party rose up with amazing success which I believe to be, in part, to Beck´s support (along with Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann). When his show left the air... the air went out of the Tea Party as a movement.
I knew it was a mistake for him to leave that show and it may have cost us this election with the fracturing of the Tea Party and the scum of America desecrating it at every opportunity.
I pray God now intervenes to save our Republic as the Republicans have dismissed the Tea Party as radicals - there just doesn´t seem to be a viable movement left to combat the socialist who choking out the American way of life now... I´ll simply pray!
Indeed, we are simply "not viable" any longer. The socialist tide floats all boats. And networks. And pundits. Even Rush is left farting in the wind as his audience maxes out. While still a believer, I tune him out after an hour due to suicidal urges setting in. When all around you lose their heads, join in lest you want yours on a stick.
I have a got deal for all of the liberals, lets start with Murdoch, Maher, Schumur, Mikey Moore. We will do immigration reform THEIR way but...They can no longer live behind their walled compounds and they no longer have doors to their homes.
Our entire family and all our friends have turned FOX off for good. The only time I go to FOX is to see the first half of Bret Baier. If he´s followed by a panel that includes Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers, whatever her name is Stoddard, and the other RAT flamers, its tune out time.
Karl Rove has been a light for FOX and the thanks for what he brings is the dung now being dished at him with Ailes´/Murdock´s approval. There is nothing left to watch. We tuned out network years ago, I wouldn´t watch any other cable, listen to Rush daily, and my principle source is the web—I tune in FOX only for event stuff and then often miss it. Even Brit Hume has taken a dive and where he once was a voice to listen to, that´s long gone. Charles Krauthammer is carrying Fox and when they can him, which is likely ahead, that will put the last stone on the pile.
I´ve written to Fox, sent emails. Nothing. Time to tune out? You bet. It´s long overdue.
hannity is a do as I say not as I do person (except for the military and there I´ll give him kudos) mainly using platitudes and sayings over and over to let people blow off steam. he has been a faithfully follower of the "architect" since day one, and praised our new supreme court head justist john roberts as the best thing since sliced bread. Too many strikes on Fox news and their line up of "conservative reporters"
No matter what the clones on Fox say, there is no way that the Republicans can go along with the liberal Democrats and put all the illegal aliens on a "path to citizenship", if the Republicans did that, they would be committing long-term national suicide.
Nobody knows for sure how many illegal aliens are here now, the liberal media propaganda puts the figure at 11 millions but in reality it could be 20 million people. After being legalized under any sort of a liberal Democrat amnesty the legalized aliens would gain the right to bring their foreign relatives here in the years ahead. That could easily encompass 20 million more aliens in the next decade.
Most illegal aliens are poor low income earners who come from socialist oriented third world countries. Once legalized with US voting rights they would overwhelmingly vote for the liberal Democrats who would promise them all sorts of new rights, benefits and services in turn for their votes. With the liberal Democrats gaining tens of millions of new foreign born voters the Republicans would never again be able to win national elections.
Listen to Marco Rubio who wants to legalize long time illegal aliens by granting them a temporary immigration status without a "path to citizenship" until they individually meet the normal requirements that all legal immigrants must meet to quality for an immigrant visa under current law. The liberal Democrats will never go along with that and lose tens of million of new votes.
Fox an Friends First, is my wake up, feel good, day brighter. Where else can you get the news an look at some of the best legs in TV. (laughing). As far as the Latino problem goes, we need to get them into the GOP Party, if we have any chance of getting back the Presidency. Fox still is the best of the Cable News Outlets. The Libs get a little annoying but their views is a balance.
Hannity is an idiot who not only beats a dead horse, he beats its skeleton, then its dust. He is a one note tune, at best. I came from a very similar backgroud to O´Reilly on Long Island and grew up around the same time. He is a nasty piece of work, as nasty as the Irish can be. I cannot stand him.
Beck was ok, but he did not bring the humor of his radio program to the fox tv stage and lost his audience there.
If any panel has Bill Kristol as the voice of the republicans/conservatives on it, I change the channel.
Face it. With nearly 1/2 the electorate getting money from the feds, the US is lost. No media outlet, no talking heads, nothing can turn that fact around. Vote buying with our own tax dollars (and future tax dollars) has proven to be hugely successful. The dems don´t really need the illegals. They are just window dressing.
I was surfing "TWIT" via my Roku and ran across Leo Laporte´s NMX 2013 Keynote (TWIT Live Specials #148). Leo points out that the new media should quit the push for "eyeballs", which is the game of broadcast and cable mass media. Instead, new media should concentrate on delivering a passionate message to a dedicated "community". More of what a micro-brewery is to Anheuser-Busch.
I thought of FNC as he made his point, and concluded that a similar approach is needed for political media. I´ve always been skeptical about FNC´s "fair and balanced" approach, as it plays the game of seeking eyeballs, rather than addressing a dedicated community of conservative listeners. That skepticism has, unfortunately, been justified.
The Blaze (GBTV) is a start, but resources like Blaze, PJTV, CainTV, InfoWars, and others need to coalesce into a conservative web-network. It needs to avoid some of the mistakes of the old "America´s Voice" and become more polished like FNC. As Laporte points out, it is much cheaper to produce a webcast than a cable-cast or broadcast. Make it available on the new streaming TVs and boxes. Include advertising to keep subscriber cost low - follow the Hulu model.
Fox suddenly shifted left when Murdoch got caught hacking into cell phones. After that, Rupert has been trumpeting leftist ideas like amnesty for illegals and now gun control. I haven´t watched since the central planner in the amerikan kremlin (val jarrett) blackmailed him to avoid prosecution here.
AND a Nationwide newspaper on the lines of USA today, but with only conservative writers, like Thomas Sowell, etc. AND real journalists (if there are any out there). Donald Trump might see this as a good investment..Gore had a tv station (it flopped like all things liberal)..now it is our turn. To do it and do it right.
was a FOX viewer for the longest time. A few years ago, maybe sometime after Shep let his mascara run, I notice a subtle shift to the left that has continued.....It came to my attention that a Saudi Prince bought a large chunk of FOX stock. I think he became the second largest stock holder....they´ve been off in this household since....Absolutely time for a new FOX
Rhetorical question time (I see that there are still some amnesty fans who post here). When the 10-20 million are given either green cards or full citizenship they become eligible for SS and Medicare plus a bunch of other programs. These programs are regressive only if you have to pay in at a high salary your whole working life - but highly progressive if you work fewer years, and or at a low salary.
That is, amnesty will cost the taxpayers a trillion or so dollars in new SS, Medicare obligations alone.
Inch by inch Fox is losing conservative viewers. - I do enjoy The Five - they laugh as well address all manner of issues, and putting Beckel back in his box when needed. Greta´s show is worth watching until she dives into the legal pie filling - she goes into the halls of Congress and isn´t afraid to make them give an account of their wobbliness. #24 ´s idea has merit, otherwise TV media is a wilderness.Thank goodness for the internet, and Miss Lucianne´s forum.
I watch much less of Fox than I used to because I can´t stand the liberal pundits. The "fair and balanced" thing is a con because it should be called "truth and lies". Lies should never be given equal time, even if they are dispelled in the course of the conversation. There is always some loony that will believe them.
O´Reilly is me, me, me. Hannity does beat that horse to dust and then some. I can´t believe they keep Shep on 2 shows, and Megan Kelly lost me on election night when she so perkily announced the reelection of the Poseur.
It´s outrageous that Fox has no competition. It´s success has been a clear sign that a more right-leaning, or heck, just a middle-of-the-road network has a huge market. But where are the bandwagon jumpers?
It´s very disappointing. Competition would keep Fox honest.
The final straw was the addition of Kucinich to the FOX line-up. THAT addition both confirmed & sealed the deal! ...FNC has come undone, just as did CNN before when its journalistic integrity became compromized & mired in the radical statist dems´ agenda. mmm mmm mmm
These days, radio and the web is where, with discernment, reality still can be found. That reality isn´t a pretty picture as the lefties are but pulling America´s Constitution and Bill of Rights out from under Life, Liberty AND The Pursuit of Happiness. It is like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
0bama has now apparently become an odd sort of cult figure to the gullible, as evidenced by the wacky dems´ media coverage of the past few days.
I believe that Fox Cable news has gone from Fair and Balanced to just Unbalanced and they lost me as a viewer about 6 months ago. I refuse to watch Mr Williams and Mr Beckel and the rest of the partisan leftists they have brought on board. They don´t even make any sense, much less bring anything worthwhile to the conversation. I get all my news from the Internet. Miss Dr K though.
I agree about The Five. I enjoy it alot. I do not even want to see Kucinich, much less hear his opinion. I told my 65 year old daughter today that I have never been this afraid for my country in my life. I don´t think it will matter much to me what happens, but I fear for all my grandchildren and great grandchildren.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
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
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
