Time for a new Fox?
Daily Caller, by Mickey Kaus

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2013 11:55:08 AM

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.

Deal?

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.

Fox fired Beck, hired Beckel and the end was in sight.

Now they have Dennis Kucinich on their team.

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.

It can be done. It´s time.

"Forward."

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.

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.

Again, who should pay for this?

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.

Fox committed the cardinal sin. They forgot to "dance with the one who brung ya." The lure of mega-bucks was just too strong.

Then again, almost no one ever does what´s right anymore. Why expect Fox to be any different.

I, too, have sent them many emails, all of which were unanswered and the complaints obviously ignored since nothing ever changed except to go farther and farther to the left.

Just like America, itself, they are being destroyed from within, just like the communists always do it.

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.

So 53 percent of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare. But is it me or Republicans behaving like it´s a 100 percent?

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood

Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation´s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27.

Díaz-Balart: Obama May Issue
´Very Controversial Executive

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice: Diplomatic Solution Still

Washington Free Beacon, by Daniel Wiser    Original Article

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

FBI, IRS, and Rhode Island law enforcement officials entered the Rhode Island State House on Friday, apparently to collect evidence from the offices of Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox. A spokesperson for the Democrat´s office said to the AP that his staffers weren´t informed why they were asked to leave the premises by state police. Fox´s office and his attorney declined comment on the incident, while the U.S. Attorney´s office would only say that law enforcement officials were carrying out two search warrants at the State House. So with that in mind, the AP adds some context that may or

The White House has reportedly begun testing smartphones from Samsung and LG, perhaps indicating that BlackBerry may soon lose one of its most high-profile customers. Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd publicly criticized CNN this week for its relentless use of the "breaking news" chyron on stories related to missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370. "Another day of ´breaking news´ based on finding nothing or in other words, ´not breaking news,´" Todd, who also hosts MSNBC´s "Daily Rundown," wrote on Twitter on Friday morning. "I know it may look like I am casting stones while potentially living in a glass house. But the mistakes of one news org hurts ALL of us," he wrote. "Then it becomes ´the media´ is abusing ´breaking news´

Are you are among the uninitiated lumpenproletariat who believe the decline of the Roman Empire was attributable to a multitude of factors? Do you still naively assume that rampant immorality, political corruption, inability to effectuate regime change without violence and bloodletting, failure to curb runaway inflation, the complete over extension of military resources and the eventual drought of plunder were among the reasons for the fall of Rome? Then you obviously have not read the latest NASA report on how the benighted empire could have avoided collapse if only it had adhered to the tenets of Karl Marx. Apparently, Rome

In a question and answer session at Stanford Center at Peking University in Beijing, China, First Lady Michelle Obama said that sometimes one needs to do things she´s uncomfortable with. She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Los Angeles — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it´s outrageous that the country is even debating the subject. Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
