Yet Another Reason to Love Fox News...

Laura Ingraham took time out of her show last week to blast LeBron for expressing a political opinion ON HIS OWN DAMN NETWORK/WEBSITE.

 

She told him to, "Shut up and dribble."

 

She's just incensed because he has more of a voice and is a better role model than she is.

 

She's incensed because he's a black man who's accumulated massive amounts of wealth (good for him) AND articulates a view point different than hers.

 

She's OK with him playing sports for her entertainment, but she's not OK with him having a political opinion that isn't her own.

^ I would think that conservatives would appreciate an actual American success story.  LeBron wasn't born into wealth like the Cheeto.  But again neither were Obama or Hilary Clinton.  Conservatives seem to like oligarchs rather than self made people.

^ What makes these FoxNews celebrities anymore qualified than LBJ to talk about politics?

 

What makes Lebron anymore qualified than Fox News hosts to play basketball?

They are free to attend try outs to try to make their living that way.

 

Were you outraged at the political opinions spewed by Curt Schilling, an athlete who was given airtime on Fox News?

"Lebron needs to shut up and dribble! Now, coming up next on our segment, Tomi Lahren discusses how to defeat ISIS in Syria."

 

Followed by Ted Nugent talking about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

He isnt.  They can play basketball whenever they want.

 

If they tried to subject me to watching that, I'd tell them to stop dribbling and get back to telling me the news.

But, sure, the right is engaging in thoughtful, productive discussion and debate. Here is one of their thought leaders using one of her high-school maladies to describe the enemy....

 

Ingraham: Liberals are 'kind of like herpes'

https://thinkprogress.org/brian-kilmeade-attacks-parkland-survivors-fox-and-friends-dana-loesch-8f579df484df/

 

On Thursday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade criticized survivors of the February 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who took part in a CNN gun violence town hall a week later as “emotional” and “illogical.”

 

During an interview with NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, Kilmeade told her, “No one had it worse than you in that town hall where people were just so emotional, illogical — they were unconsolable [sic].”

 

Kilmeade’s comments are not the first instance of a Fox News personality attacking Parkland survivors. On February 21, The Five host Greg Gutfeld offered some unsolicited “advice” to the students.

 

“You’ve got to beware of when other groups co-opt your protest,” he warned, echoing a right-wing smear campaign against the students that originated on pro-Trump blogs.

 

Classy.

Dear Sean, everyone has inconsistent beliefs. Thus everyone is a hypocrite. But not everyone is classy about it....

 

@KevinMKruse

"Americans don't want to be lectured by hypocrites" is an actual sentence that Sean Hannity just uttered on Fox News.

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/school-walkout-fox-news-gun-control-122025402.html

 

On Wednesday morning, students all over the country left their schools for 17 minutes to commemorate the deaths of the students and staff of Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (one minute for each murder committed by the gunman), and to make an appeal for stricter gun control legislation. By Wednesday night, Fox News went gunning for the students, ridiculing their protest. Tucker Carlson devoted the first segment of his 8 p.m. hour to scoffing at the sincerity of the students, calling them dupes of the Democrats. He exhorted his viewers, saying, “You should be against this!,” as chyrons at the bottom of the screen read “Political Props” and “The Left Is Exploiting Children.” Carlson continues to push the idea that the Stoneman Douglas students who’ve spearheaded this newly energized gun-control movement are too young, too immature, too stupid to do their own thinking on this matter.

 

Laura Ingraham:

“Democrats are using these kids to whip up enthusiasm for the mid-terms, 2020, and beyond, and of course for voter registration. It’s theater, but with real-world consequences.”

 

There it is: voter registration is bad, and protest is never sincere—it’s “theater.”

 

Fox News' new strategy - attack the kids because they're probably dumb and immature.

 

In an alternate Fox News world - the Freedom Riders were too stupid to know what they were doing.

 

Those people participating in sit-ins?  Idiots!

Fox News on Obama: "Bowing and scraping before dictators."

 

Fox News on Trump: "The Commander-in-Chief's leadership is now leading to a major diplomatic breakthrough."

 

For literally the EXACT same thing.

Fox has degenerated…to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration"—retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters' statement as he resigns from @FoxNews

 

Fox News Is Gaslighting Their Viewers Into Authoritarianism

In a crisis, rules are allowed to be broken and norms suspended. And it’s Fox’s job to manufacture those crises for the GOP.

It has been confirmed by Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters that Fox News doesn't allow commentators who "don't like Trump" comment on the Russia investigation.

 

If you still watch Fox News and view it as a serious News station, you are ignorant.  Im sorry.

Hannity:

 

“This country is headed towards a civil war in terms of two sides that are just hating each other and if Robert Mueller wants, there’s a big red button in the middle of the table,” he exclaimed. “And if Robert Mueller is so pompous and so arrogant and so power hungry and so corrupt that he’s going to hit the red button and he’s going to ignite a battle that we’ve not seen in this country before.”

 

Hannity continued, “You think it’s, and I’m not talking about a war, I’m talking about, in terms of, there’s going to be two sides of this that are fighting and dividing this country at a level we’ve never seen and you’re going to basically have two sides in America, those that stand for truth and those that literally buy into the corrupt Deep State attacks against a duly elected president and that’s what it’s going to be.”

 

Sean Hannity is a nut.

“EPA had attempted to allow television camera access to Fox News without informing the other four networks: CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS. Fox alerted the networks and a pool was established allowing networks equal access to the event.”

 

 

Good on Fox News.

In case you were wondering if they are state media or not, every media outlet in the world is reporting this morning on the $50 billion in tariffs that China is placing on US goods.  Fox News?  Not a peep.

^I thought you were joking.  You weren't joking...

 

Not at all. 

 

On a daily basis my Facebook and Twitter feeds are filled with Trumpie friends saying that CNN isn't reporting XYZ because it doesn't fit their narrative.  Then I post a link to it saying, no here it is right here, on their main web splash page.  Like the YouTube shooting yesterday for instance. 

 

If you look at any major stories that might be anti-Trump however, Fox News drags its feet on reporting it, if at all. 

 

That's what you call state media!

Santa Barbara has fond memories of @seanhannity's time here in the 80s.

 

He got the boot here as a shock jock cuz he and/ or his guests spewed such morsels of enlightenment as… "All gays are AIDS carriers", "Gays eat fecal matter" & "Homosexuals are disgusting people"
