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.
