Shepard Smith done lost his mind

October 29, 2009

Background: Shannon Bream (interviewer for Fox News) was reporting on the Governor’s race in NJ which will be decided this coming Tuesday. The race is a close one between incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine and Republican candidate Chris Christie. This is one of those races that will seem to be a “litmus test” for the 2010 election. Shannon Bream had an impromptu interview with Chris Christie. Shep was obviously surprised and asked her when she would be interviewing Corzine. She stated that they had requested an interview with him several times and he had not replied. Then Shep apologizes for that “lack of balance” and says it wouldn’t have happened if he were in charge.

Okay, first of all, how is it Bream’s fault that Corzine isn’t interviewed when he is the one who won’t give the interview?  There are a few people who have no business being on Fox.  Shep is one of them.  Geraldo is another.  And in my opinion, Bill O’Reilly is another.  These people are about stupid.  What was Shepard Smith trying to do?  Win his way into the heart of the Supreme O?  Kiss up to Axelrod and Dunn?  Piss off his viewers?  Well, atleast he succeeded at the last one. 

Another little piece of this exchange that ticks me off is that Shep says, “the Democrat’s probably gonna win, right?”.  Um, no.  The latest Rasmussen survey has Christie (the Republican) ahead by three points.  Do your research, Shep.  If I really wanted to hear the liberal point of view, I would be watching CNN or MSNBC.


Big Props to the MainStream Media

October 23, 2009

Now usually I don’t agree with anything the Mainstream Media does or says. Today is different. I must say I am quite proud of how they handled themselves on this issue.

The White House contacted the press pool (representatives from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and FOX) and stated that they would be conducting interviews with the new Pay Czar, Kenneth Feinberg. However, everyone BUT Fox was invited. The other members of the pool stood up for what is right (you know – the Constitution and all) and refused to do the interviews if FOX wasn’t invited. HOORAY for you, mainstream media! So, the White House retaliated by only allowing each interviewer 2 minutes instead of the original 5. Boo freaking hoo.
Of course, when Carol E Lee from Politico asked White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, if he believed that FOX should be removed from the White House press pool, he said that wasn’t his job to decide. Oh really? Sounds like you are trying to make it your job.  Of course, as the President stated, he isn’t losing any sleep over this.  He’s just spending a lot of his time trying to stick it to FOX and making a fool of himself in the process. 

I just love it when evil schemes backfire!

Diarrhea of the Mouth

October 22, 2009

Yes, that would be the problem with Alan Grayson, the representative for Florida’s 8th district. Everytime he opens his mouth, crap oozes out.  He is so uncouth that even Vice Prez Joe Biden has called him a “bad comedian” in response to him making jokes about Dick Cheney liking to “shoot old guys”.  Wonder if we can get Cheney to take HIM hunting? 
He is the representative who infamously said that the Republican healthcare plan is 1)Don’t get sick. 2) If you do get sick, die quickly.  This little presentation was given only 3 weeks after Democrats got their undies in a wad about Rep. Joe Wilson shouting “You lie” during the President’s speech on health care reform.  The CNN and MSNBC pansies just couldn’t believe Wilson’s lack of respect and decorum.  Of course, they had no problem with Grayson’s rudeness.  That was just funny.  The most important fact being that Joe Wilson was right (the dems DO want health coverage for illegal aliens – the President WAS lying) and Alan Grayson was wrong (of course Republicans do not want sick people to just die).

After Joe Wilson’s outburst, he later apologized for his actions.  (I wish he hadn’t, but he did.)  When Republicans called for Grayson to apologize, he refused and then later apologized to the dead that died because we didn’t pass health care reform.  Ridiculous.

Now he’s at it again, appearing on MSNBC to call Fox News the “enemy of America“.  He said, “They’re the enemy of anybody who cares about health care in this country, the enemy of anybody who cares about educating their children, the enemy of anybody who wants energy independence or anything good for this country. And certainly the enemy of peace, there’s no doubt about that. They are the enemy.”  Wow, think for yourself much, Mr Grayson?  Sounds to me like you are just being a good little lapdog for the President and attacking his newest annoyance, Fox News.  I’ll bet he’s real proud of you.  Good boy, Alan!  You remind me of that stupid little dog on the cartoons that kept running beside the big dog, jumping over him, and saying “Hey Spike.  C’mon Spike.  What are we gonna do now, Spike?”

One can only hope that the good citizens in the 8th district wake up and elect a new rep next year.  Until then I’m sure we will hear more of these ridiculous comments from Mr. Grayson.  Your day is coming, Mr. Grayson.  America is tired of people like you.  Fox news has the highest ratings for a reason.  MSNBC is in the tank.  America is tired of liberal crap and representatives like you who have no morals.  I think that YOU are the enemy.  The enemy of freedom.  The enemy of prosperity.  The enemy of progress.  The enemy of peace.  The enemy of the American Dream.

Tolerance, open-mindedness, and all that crap

October 19, 2009

I just love how liberals tout tolerance and open-mindedness when it fits their agenda, and then turn around and do the opposite. Love, love, love hypocrisy. BIG fan.

Representatives for the White House like Communications Director Anita Dunn and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel continue to make disparaging remarks about Fox News.  Ms. Dunn said that Fox News was like an “arm” of the Republican Party and called it “opinion journalism masquerading as news”.  Emanuel stated, “it’s not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.”

David Axelrod, White House Senior Advisor, all out said that Fox wasn’t even news and even called for other news channels to stop treating them as if they were.  He said that “they” would continue to appear on Fox, but with the understanding that it wasn’t really news.  Just an opinion network or something.  Interestingly enough, “they” does not include the President.

What happened to that lovey-dovey, touchy-feely, hopey-changey thing?  It’s dealing with a 4-year-old.  If you don’t agree with me and constantly tell me how wonderful I am and how much you love me, I’m just gonna take my ball and go home.  What happened to that whole “we believe everyone is entitled to an opinion” thing?  What happened to that little freedom of the press thingy?  Oh, that’s right, we flushed that with the rest of the Constitution. 

And, really, for anyone who has watched CNN or MSNBC, you mean to tell me that Rachel Maddow and Wolf Blitzer are fair and balanced?  HAHAHA!  The White House doesn’t have a problem with those networks because they are falling all over themselves to kiss his Presidential behind.  Messiah worship.  And they promote his evil ideology.  If any network is an “arm” of a party, certainly CNN and MSNBC oughta be on the DNC payroll. 

In the end, the President and his cronies are doing themselves no favors.   In the 3rd quarter of 2009, Fox News was home to all of the top 10 cable news programs.  Fox averaged over 2 million viewers in primetime, more than CNN and MSNBC combined.  Also, while all of the “top” programs on those other channels were tanking, the programs on Fox were climbing in viewership.  Ah, it’s true – success is always the best revenge.
