NOT EVEN VICTORIA JACKSON'S UKULELE?  1:42 pm November 2, 2012

Fox & Friends: Why Doesn’t NBC’s Hurricane Sandy Telethon Have More People Who Sneer At People Who Need Help?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Well it is obviously Media Matters Day here on your Wonket, as they are our “idiotic Fox & Friends video” go-to, and Fox & Friends is on somewhat of a tear! Now? They’re just asking! why NBC would give Barack Obama such a wet, tonguey blow job by doing … a Hurricane Sandy benefit? Is that because hurricane relief and disaster management have liberal biases? (Of course it is. And it’s obviously just Not Fair to mention a hurricane right after a hurricane happens, when Barack Obama is good at cleaning up after hurricanes, and Mitt Romney is bad at it.) But it is also because they are putting a whole bunch of rock stars on a stage, right before an election, and they are all liberals, and as Steve Doocy plaintively demanded, “HOW IS NBC GOING TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE SAY???”

Yes, NBC has already announced Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, and BRUUUUUCE — because the aformentioned music-people are liberals, obviously, which fits right into NBC’s pro-Obama dastardly plan. There is nothing else we could possibly see that they might have in common! And to add insult to liberalism, NBC has NOT announced plans to let Kid Rock, Meat Loaf, or The Nuge! onstage to invite Barack Obama to suck his machine gun! This is all the proof you need of NBC’s TERRIBLE BIAS against awful music people who threaten the president’s life the great and very deep bench of conservative popular music!

NBC, get right! (So to speak.) Give us a little more this.

I saw on the internet that Greenwich, Ct is hosting a telethon for itself on Fox.

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Oh please! PBS. Greenwich wouldn't have anything to do with FOX than they would with the WWE.

Barbara_ November 2, 2012 at 1:45 pm

How is this supposed to make "Obama look more Presidential?" Is he going to step out of Air Force One and wave a Bic lighter for an encore by Springsteen?

Tommy1733 November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

He will no doubt sing another popular soul number from the 70's. The wingnuts love it when he sings.

Serolf_Divad November 2, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Obama's going to parachute in to the stadium wearing a parachute harness that's even more blatantly crotch-hugging than the flight suit George W. Bush wore for his "Mission Accomplished" speech.

Geminisunmars November 2, 2012 at 1:59 pm

As long as he doesn't wear Queen Liz's (don't call Her Liz) outfit from parachuting into the Olumpics.

AngryBlakGuy November 2, 2012 at 2:01 pm

…maybe he will sing a duet with Christina Aguilera, I would suggest genie in a bottle.

Trinket November 2, 2012 at 3:53 pm

We can only hope.

Doktor Zoom November 2, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Victoria Jackson's Ukulele has a sticker that says "This machine kills laughter."

LesBontemps November 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

WIN.

Goonemeritus November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

And compassion

Barbara_ November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

And her underpants have an XXL sticker that just screams, "boner killer."

elviouslyqueer November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

No, darling. "Boner killer" is her voice. Her panties have a sticker that says "Fresh until Sept 1986."

OneYieldRegular November 2, 2012 at 1:55 pm

I would almost believe this were it not for the fact that Ms. Jackson has a demonstrated inability to comprehend irony.

C_R_Eature November 2, 2012 at 2:25 pm

This Comment Deserves Cephalopony!

Mittaplasia November 2, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Did you see the comment below it? "I like its soulless black eye."

RufusTFirefly November 2, 2012 at 4:46 pm

You win the internet. Again.

BoatOfVelociraptors November 2, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Fox News is unfortunately north.

Mittaplasia November 2, 2012 at 2:41 pm

They're way out there where the buses don't run!

nounverb911 November 2, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Obviously, no one at Fox lives in Jersey or Staten Island.

Sue4466 November 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Also, none of their viewers. Or they believe their viewers are so stupid, they won't see that Fox would rather Christie have let them fester in misery than accept Nobama's help. Of course, Fox might be right about that.

PuckStopsHere November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

The hurricane is God's way of punishing us for Meatloaf singing "America the Beautiful" in public.

Serolf_Divad November 2, 2012 at 2:22 pm

My God, I missed that second video the first time I read this story.

I honestly never thought I'd hear someone massacre "America the Beautiful" more mercilessly than Mitt Romney. But, Christ…. Mitt Sounds like Pavarotti compared to Meatloaf!

I guess that in the same way that becoming a Conservative comedian kills your sense of humor (see: Dennis Miller) becoming a conservative Musician is murder on the vocal cords.

nonbeliever7 November 2, 2012 at 2:33 pm

OK, ok, after all these heathen years, I see the light. Hurricane Sandy proves there is a God and she is subtly telling Mitt to fuck off and die. I'm changing my name to trubeliever7.

Gleem McShineys November 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Point of Order! Not sure what it was, but that was definitely not "singing."

succalina November 2, 2012 at 11:15 pm

Meatloaf's not looking too good. At. All.

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Telethon? Too soon!

gullywompr November 2, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Did they not see how Brownie got his nose rubbed in that argument?

Callyson November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Really? The timing is suspect? The wingnuts are going to double down on "heck of a job" Brownie's criticism that Democrats are acting too quickly to help those who need assistance after Sandy?

I have a friend whose nephew lost everything thanks to Sandy–he lived on the Long Island shore. Oh, and he has a wife who is due to give birth in six weeks. Go tell him that the timing is suspect, asshole…

/FFS again

BlueStateLibel November 2, 2012 at 3:46 pm

It's also too soon to turn the power back on … let us all freeze-ez to death first.

Crank_Tango November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Ah fox and friends, the inner sanctum of Hitler's bunker.

emmelemm November 2, 2012 at 2:06 pm

More like Hitler's bunghole.

Tequila Mockingbird November 2, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Ah fox and friends, the inner sanctum rectum of Hitler's bunker bunghole.
Fixed!

Crank_Tango November 2, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Ooops, I spelled Santorum wrong again!

hagajim November 2, 2012 at 2:34 pm

you mean the inner sanctum of the re**rd Hitler bunker.

tihond November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Steve Doocy doesn't care about Barack people.

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

If the Nuge isn't on the bill, it's suspect.

Schmannnity November 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

How is NBC going to control what people say? It could do like Fox and run electric wires to Steve Doocey's nipple rings.

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 2:20 pm

*shudders at the mental image of Doocy in leather with a ball gag in his mouth trying to scream his safe word, "CNN"*

FlownOver November 2, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I'd love it if Doocy were pretty fuckin' far from OK.

FakaktaSouth November 2, 2012 at 2:33 pm

It is quite fitting that this is how the Dooce believes things should go – that's how it works, right? the Network tells you what to say? Here's the propaganda for today you pathetic little twat. I just hate these people.

Ducksworthy November 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

I think the Foxians realize what an apt metaphor Hurricane Sandy is for what Obama had to deal with after Shitstorm Bush.

Goonemeritus November 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

It’s clear that God is in the tank for Obama, what other explanation could there be for the timing of this storm?

cousinitt November 2, 2012 at 2:16 pm

God is a Blah??

Geminisunmars November 2, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Of course She is.

starfanglednut November 2, 2012 at 9:02 pm

:)

SmutBoffin November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Hurricanes are weather, and the weather is liberal*. Ergo, the destruction is Obama's fault to begin with.

Suck much, NBC?

*Saw it on Beck's chalkboard.

HouseOfTheBlueLights November 2, 2012 at 2:29 pm

It's true. Lovely, red, North Carolina outlawed sea level rise, that's why the hurricane hit New Jersey instead.

AlterNewt November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Fox and Friends. That's hilarious.

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

You know what? I hope one of the participants says "Barack Obama hates white people," so they can hear just how fucking stupid they sound.

Schmannnity November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Glen Beck is coming?

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 1:59 pm

God, I hope not…we'd need to declare anyplace that happened a Superfund site

AngryBlakGuy November 2, 2012 at 2:03 pm

…he doesn't?!

SmutBoffin November 2, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I thought that was the reason why we were voting for him!?

AngryBlakGuy November 2, 2012 at 2:13 pm

…yeah, wasn't Rev. Wright supposed to be his VP?!

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Well, maybe the white men…

AngryBlakGuy November 2, 2012 at 2:17 pm

…nothing wrong with a little snow bunny action!

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Thass what I'm talkin' bout!

HistoriCat November 2, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Shit, I've reached the point that I hate white people too. Well, most of us, anyway.

Loch_Nessosaur November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Next on Fox and Friends – You People!

belmontreport November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Why would you raise relief money while people still need relief? You should do it after the clean-up is done, because that is when they need money the most, I think?

Schmannnity November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

It's kind of like washing pots after they are already clean.

belmontreport November 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Bravo.

HouseOfTheBlueLights November 2, 2012 at 2:30 pm

They should (re)build it themselves, amirite?

CindynEncinitas November 2, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Just go to Staples and buy an Easy button, stupid people!

Callyson November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

"Where are the conservative performers? There aren't any on the list I saw"

Um, NBC is trying to *raise money* for Sandy victims, not lose audience share…

Christ, these assholes…I just can't…

bikerlaureate November 2, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Why is NBC discriminating against all the compassionate conservatives that are clamoring to help hurricane victims?

BlueMonkeh November 2, 2012 at 2:06 pm

yes. i'm sure all of the supporters of mittens that scoff at the layabouts and riff-raff of society would just give a shit-ton of their money to the victims of a hurricane if only Ted Nugent and MeatLoaf would perform a duet followed by a dramatic reading by Jon Voight and the comedy stylings of Dennis Miller. sure they would.

bikerlaureate November 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm

"Where are the undermedicated schizophrenic performers? There aren't any on the list I saw" …

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Stacy Dash could recreate a scene from Clueless.

AlterNewt November 2, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Easy Cally, your heart…

Wilcoxyz November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

What's Kanye going to say this time?

Barry Obama cares about white people. Sorry, WET people. Wet people.

Serolf_Divad November 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I question the timing too. Why would NBC put on a hurricane relief concert just after the hurricane? Why not six months from now, for instance? Or maybe on the day of Mitt Romney's innauguration?*

*That would be the 9th of never, FYI.

Schmannnity November 2, 2012 at 1:50 pm

If Springsteen is coming, I can think of a certain 400 pound governor who will be there.

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I picture him with a pizza in one hand and a 2 liter in the other screaming "Rosalita!" as chunks of pepperoni fly out of his mouth.

SexySmurf November 2, 2012 at 1:57 pm

400 pounds? Only if he leaves both his legs at home.

Terry November 2, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I think Bruce should break down and talk to Christie this time, if only because Christie told Doocy off royally.

FakaktaSouth November 2, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Because I believe the Gov did that purely because he believes Mitt is a sunk ship (pardon) and he is in desperate need in his state AND considering his own interests, I hope Bruce tells him he's gross and to stop fawning all over him til he actually learns what the songs mean.

Tommmcatt_Again November 2, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I think you just solved the "Why is Christie sucking up to Obama" riddle. He knows Barry has a backstage pass.

neiltheblaze November 2, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I picture him now – gushing and begging for an autograph on his original first edition LP copy of "Born to Run" that still has the plastic on it.

Tommy1733 November 2, 2012 at 1:50 pm

"NBC, get right! (So to speak.) Give us a little more this"

Actually, no, please give no more of that ever. Ever.

FNMA November 2, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Good Christ, imagine a triple bill of Meat Loaf, Kid Rock and the Nuge…There is a hell. The horror…the horror…

Terry November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

The strange thing, well one of them, is that Kid Rock has actually done some good things in and around the city of Detroit. Very bleeding heart liberal kind of things.

FNMA November 2, 2012 at 2:06 pm

No, the really strange thing is he fucked Sheryl Crow. How the fuck did that happen? (Roofies, I'm guessing.)

Lascauxcaveman November 2, 2012 at 2:27 pm

GAAAH! You did not have to tell me that!

poorgradstudent November 2, 2012 at 2:02 pm

I'd watch it…if it ended with the ghost of Warren Zevon rip Kid Rock to shreds for completely ripping off "Werewolves of London."

DCBloom November 2, 2012 at 2:20 pm

WIN!

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Mr Loaf¹ is a New Yorker, so he might be asked to perform.

¹ actual NY Times sobriquet

EnnuiThereYet? November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

These asshats are just using what they find in the trash bins from the SNL writer's room.

It's probably a James O'Keefe undercover operation.

AngryBlakGuy November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

…I realize that my memory has been compromised from several years of heavy drinking, but if I recall correctly Mittens of the high Sith put on several so-called non political fundraiser after Sandy. Even though he said that he wouldn't!!!

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

The name itself sounds like an animated kids show. Which is what it is.

AlterNewt November 2, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Without the gravitas of Scooby.

Gleem McShineys November 2, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Things went downhill after they got rid of Tinky Winky.

elviouslyqueer November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I don't guess it occurred to Fucks & Fiends that the headliners at this benefit are actually from the states most affected by Sandy. Oh right, because that would require F&F to use "brains," "knowledge," and "research."

coolhandnuke November 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Pharm Aid is the only fundraiser that the Fox workers contribute to.

BoatOfVelociraptors November 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Cindy McCain and Rush always did love them some Pharm aid.

VA_Dreaming November 2, 2012 at 2:30 pm

No can do, that would be redistribution of wealth – they are against that commie stuff!

Terry November 2, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Will Kanye West and Mike Meyers be appearing together?

mayor_quimby November 2, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Mike Meyer's sphincter still hasn't unclenched from that dark (if you know what I mean) day.

poorgradstudent November 2, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Yes, why would you have a fundraising event for relief from a specific disaster soon after said disaster? It's like they're trying to raise money as soon as possible or something, even if it means not every single person affected by the hurricane can watch it!

HouseOfTheBlueLights November 2, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Featuring people actually FROM the affected area? It's like a a a a a conspiracy!

1stNewtontheMoon November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Pat Boone will be performing as soon as he is removed the no-fly list (and reanimated from the dead).

Mittaplasia November 2, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Little Richard will make damned sure that doesn't happen!

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

So lemme get this straight:

NY/NJ/CT get hammered by a hurricane. Megastars from the area, people who are identified first and foremost as NYers or NJites, are somehow political because they agree to participate in a fund raiser, but the shitkickers who were there for Katrina, like Dr John, they were acting out of the goodness of their hearts?

Terry November 2, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Bruce also played Jazz Fest in New Orleans a few months after Katrina. Brought tears to everyone's eyes with a great version of We Shall Overcome. Jimmy Buffett was there too and did a great job.

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Bruce is like that. He played a surprise concert in Norway after the massacre.

bobbert November 2, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Somehow, I don't remember Fox effusing about ol' Mac.

mrpuma2u November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Giving a shit about people in crisis has a liberal bias. C'mon, the states hit hardest are mostly blue states, why should they care?

DaveJ November 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

FOXNews has the technology at the ready to have a hologram of Frank Sinatra appear at the telethon and call Jimmy Carter a pussy.

Wilcoxyz November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Why hasn't the private sector cleaned this shit up yet? Is it just gonna sit there and let Mitt twist in his magic undies. C'mon hedge fund managers. Start mopping.

delaney_blom November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

It's gotten to the point that Meat Loaf will do anything for . . . .attention?

iburl November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, "Hank Williams, Jr.", Meatloaf, & Charlie Daniels are ready to sing.

"We are the World, we are Amurca, we are the ones that God loves best, so let's start bombing. There's a choice we're taking, now Mormon rules your lives, it's true we've purged the rolls of blacks and students too."

emmelemm November 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Dave Mustaine says, "Am I invited?"

SorosBot November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Now that he's a hurricane victim Christie is hoping so hard Bruce will finally speak to him.

Terry November 2, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Christie also stepped away from politics and thought about the people of NJ. That rates a few words from The Boss.

bobbert November 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I agree, but I also agree with Fakakta above that some of those words should be "Stop being such a dick most of the time".

Mittens Howell, III November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Conservative entertainers are all shitty-shit-for-brains who no-one wants to watch, maybe?

HouseOfTheBlueLights November 2, 2012 at 2:32 pm

No, they're all recovering from the post-CMA hangover.

1stNewtontheMoon November 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

steve, we promise after the next tornado levels east bumfuck, oklahoma, toby keith will be invited to sing about putting boots up the asses of storms and the like.

Say, you want suspect timing?

How about the fact that the NatGeo channel is holding a special on Seal Team Six and how they kilt Osama on SUNDAY NIGHT??????

Oh. Wait. NatGeo is owned by FOX, nevermind…

Antispandex November 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm

"…why NBC would give Barack Obama such a wet, tonguey blow job…"

I'm sure there is SOMEONE at NBC that I would be glad to recieve a blow job from, if I were President…or not Presiednt. Let's see there's…well, I digress. The point here is, blow jobs for everyone, or no one! Sure, Mitt doesn't even KNOW (probably, you know, being a moral person, and a mormon) what (metaphorical or otherwise) a bolw job is, but I'm sure if it were explained to him, he would like one.

Next week–and every week– on Fox News " Handguns Across America" hate-a-thon.

SorosBot November 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Fox is so desperate here, feeling pressure with Obama ahead and looking forward to glory days of a second term, it's like they're living on a prayer as they try and keep the faith, hoping for a Romney victory who's chances keep moving out. Now that this stormfront has turned NYC and New Jersey into badlands and ruined Atlantic City, (along with hitting my hometown, making the streets of Philadelphia slippery when wet, but at least that didn't get it bad; still it's my life) Obama has shown himself to be a big shot, responding greatly to the crisis and covering himself in a blaze of glory.

Crank_Tango November 2, 2012 at 2:20 pm

everbody's got a hungry governor.

iburl November 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm

If Obama can stand between Chris Christie and Springsteen and get them to shake hands, he wins the election.

That's comedy. These idiots reside in the area that's been hit, and surely, like all of us, have friends, co-workers, and loved ones horribly affected. But still they carry on with their pitiful monkey show. Like the bobbing bits of poop on the saturated streets of Red Hook.

Um, BECAUSE THE HURRICANE WAS YESTERDAY, FUCKNUTS??

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Trix, thanks for the reminder. I've been so glued to the Sandy story that I forgot to donate to the Red Cross, but your story reminded me to do it.

Rock & roll has a liberal bias…..
if you are thinking Meatloaf & Nugent, that's not rock & roll

VA_Dreaming November 2, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Nugent is the definition of rock and roll – when he moves the rocks in his head roll around.
Meatloaf, however is simply the result of too many concussions when he played high school football.

FNMA November 2, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Meat Loaf was pretty good in Fight Club. Had a pretty decent rack, if I recall.

Gleem McShineys November 2, 2012 at 3:18 pm

HUG ME!

SorosBot November 2, 2012 at 2:56 pm

It's still Rock & Roll to me.

fatbob54 November 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Ok, so I finally watched that clip of Rmoney being serenaded by meatloaf and the other idiots and my head hurts.
The whiteys make fun of call and response?
The weirdo with the gray beard sings "I messed up the words"?
The loaf of meat sings so far out of key that my dogs start howling?
How was any of that even remotely patriotic?

Kid_Charlemagne November 2, 2012 at 2:16 pm

STOP calling the storm victims "Barry's Kids"!

ManchuCandidate November 2, 2012 at 2:17 pm

The more than obvious answer is that they suck and are irrelevant in current pop culture.

But by all means Faux Newz. Go ahead and pretend otherwise.

Jerri November 2, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Eh, fuck them.

ETA: I can't wait until Wednesday. As you can tell from this lackluster comment, this election cycle is just sucking my will to live right out of me. And it's not even sexy sucking.

Come here a minute November 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm

NBC is too biased to put on a country music star who will sing about putting his boot up Obama's ass — oh wait, I think I mean Osama. Whichever one is responsible for this tragedy.

cousinitt November 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Oh, FOX is just upset because when Mitt asked Jon Bon Jovi to play at a telethon for Mitt's trashed football field, Jon was all like, "No way Moron cult creep" and Mittens was all like, "Oh yeah, you, you singer of the devil's music, you!" And Jon was like, "It's a friggin' football field, loser" and then Mittens threatened to sell Bon Jovi's family into slavery.

actor212 November 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Say, FOX? I have a proposal that ought to rectify this.

I live in NYC, and would like a telethon. Perhaps you could ask Gretchen Carlson to come over and do a pole dance for me?

TheGyrus November 2, 2012 at 2:26 pm

NBC sure has a lot of brass to schedule singers from New Jersey and New York for a benefit to aid hurricane victims from New Jersey and New York.

neiltheblaze November 2, 2012 at 2:32 pm

See? Now here I was thinking that Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, and Bruuuuuuce were giving their time because they're all from the area and they all just saw the places they grew up get knocked around pretty hard by a natural disaster.

Silly me.

goat_thrower November 2, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I heard that "Wango Tango!" is the first thing Ted Nugent said when he successfully dodged the draft for the Vietnam War.

Disassembly November 2, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I hope all these celeBRATees participate in Fox's next smallpox telethon.

PuglyDoRight November 2, 2012 at 2:35 pm

“HOW IS NBC GOING TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE SAY???” You mean like Fox does? Here's a question, Douch-ey, why should NBC control what people say?

Trinket November 2, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I was wondering that, too.

SorosBot November 2, 2012 at 2:43 pm

"There is nothing else we could possibly see that they might have in common! "

Wait I got this! They all start with 'B', right?

tigernole November 2, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Jack Donaghy has this covered.

chascates November 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Limbaugh is apoplectic that the NYC Marathon is still on. First of all people in Staten Island are starving and drowning and secondly marathoners are 'health nazis' and of course are all leftists. You can't have more than a 16 ounce soda, you can't eat transfats, it's the end of America as he knows it.

HistoriCat November 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Plus, all those Kenyans – connect the dots sheeple!

An_Outhouse November 2, 2012 at 3:08 pm

If lazy, stupid, drug addict Obummer hadn't turned Sandy into Katrina, there would be no need for a telethon.

LibrarianX November 2, 2012 at 3:10 pm

A Fair & Balanced approach: show re-runs of the 2002 Olympics.

Scavok01 November 2, 2012 at 3:12 pm

"…half of New Jersey doesn't have power and can't watch the telethon." Because so often the people affected by disasters like to give to themselves to help in the relief efforts to help themselves. BUT that's how well-heeled Republicans do it. You change the money from one pocket to the other and claim a tax deduction.

Gleem McShineys November 2, 2012 at 3:30 pm

How is NBC going to control what people say?

Apparently it takes a multitude of approaches. You can hire 'tards, or keep the people showered in prescription meds, or even make their date-rape problems disappear.

So many solutions to this problem, right Mr. Ailes?

smokefilledroommate November 2, 2012 at 5:27 pm

I question the time of Bad Piggies. It's an election year, for fuck's sake.

gingerland62 November 2, 2012 at 6:34 pm

"what's the hurry" ? Seriously, he's on TV asking what's the hurry when there are thousands of people homeless hungry and without power following one of the worst hurricaines in history? God Bless America!?

bobster1985 November 2, 2012 at 9:10 pm

"The timing is more than suspect." Um, I guess so.

slowhansolo November 3, 2012 at 12:23 am

I fail to see how Springsteen on Air Force One could be a bad thing for the nation.

SorosBot November 3, 2012 at 12:52 am

Yes, moved out here Wednesday; was supposed to on Tuesday but that flight got cancelled for some reason, had something to do with bad weather; now I'm officially a West Coaster.

ttommyunger November 3, 2012 at 11:51 am

Compassion has a well-known Liberal bias.

steelrox November 3, 2012 at 1:00 pm

What a bunch of assholes at FOX, especially FOX and Friends. Leave it to them to question a concert to get immediate help to those devastated by Sandy. They have NO shame. Besides, I saw a show about them, its called American Horror Story.

BenGleck November 3, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Wasn't Romney's relief event held like the day after Sandy?
These three are an insult to shitheads everywhere.

barto November 3, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Apparently the Nuge refused to sign the contract clause forcing him to wear Depends on stage.

eaglewon November 5, 2012 at 1:04 pm

"half the state of NJ don't even have power they can't even watch this concert"

It's not entertainment for the storm victims you idiot, it's for the rest of america to send in money to help the storm victims.
