Fox Nooz

Oh How Cute, Fox is Suddenly Worried About “Media Bias” and its Impact on Democracy

Apparently there are “new questions” about the role of the media 2012 race! What kind of questions? Well, the kind Fox Nooz asks, like: why does the media insist on pointing out all the lies that come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth? And: why do they have to call constant attention to the fact that Gingrich is a womanizing scumbag? Yes, those kinds of questions.

The video opens with a clip of Newt being his normal charming classy self, telling a primary debate moderator that it’s basically his fault that there aren’t “decent” people running for office. Then cut to Megyn Kelly, who seems like she might be a little drunk? Maybe? And then here comes Fox Nooz contributor Jonah Goldberg to weigh in on the controversy (so yeah, maybe she IS a little drunk because even Megyn Kelly probably dreads talking to Jonah Goldberg) as well as some regular Fox Nooz contributor, so we KNOW we’re in store for a balanced, nuanced discussion, what with all these Fox Nooz contributors chatting about how much the media SUCKS. Except for Fox Nooz, who is Above it All. As usual.

          Dude, I turned off the talking head tv box after the evening news, rolled a doobie and have been listening to the soothing sounds of Led Zep and praying to Robert Plant to break the levee and drown the Teabaggers cause I knew their time was gonna come. All hail the Rock God!

      When you are too crazy even to represent the American people, you really need to seek treatment

    • fartknocker

      My significant other said it best with in her heavy West Texas accent: [i]Adios Fuckface[/i]. I love her succinct message.

    • Mittaplasia

      I was hoping Missourians could shut that whole thing down.

  • Lazy Media

    Jonah Goldberg's face is incomplete without a fist in his mouth.

    I know that's evil violent aggression,but fuck it. I was happy when they schwacked Bin Laden.

  • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

    Sherrod Brown keeps his seat! Yay!

    • glasspusher

      yeah, just saw that, nice.

  • zedbot

    *plays Ted Nugent backwards* Blooooo is Gawwwd.

  • mavenmaven

    Given how much the Republicans have lied during this campaign, I wouldn't be surprised if Fox simply declared Romney as president based on "their information" regardless of the actual outcome.

    • BadKitty904

      Their "sources." It's all about their "sources"…

  • Lot_49

    Oh no…Mittens took Wyoming!

  • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

    VA looks to be RLY close, folks.

  • glasspusher

    Bamz' got a higher %age in Miami-Dade than he had in 08, and all the results are not in yet! Beat that panhandle with a stick!

  • Schmannnity

    White, Anglican, Democratic, Hard-drinking voters rejoice! I am sorry, was it G&t or Bloody?

  • http://www.wonkette.com ChillBill

    Who the fuck cares what these irrelevant buthurt Republican propaganda station says? Fuck 'em! Four more years!

  • PubOption

    I seem to remember the media saying a lot about Clinton being a womanizer, Fox included.

  • Lazy Media

    Tammy fucking legless Duckworth, motherfuckers!

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Now that he'll be out of a job, maybe Joe Walsh can mastermind another Eagle reunion.

      I hope that's the last stupid Joe Walsh the congressman/guitarist joke you will ever see on Wonkette.

      • http://www.boskolives.wordpress.com boskolives

        No, here's the last one:
        Q. What do you call a guy that gets his ass kicked by a legless woman?
        A. Joe Walsh

  • glasspusher

    …and they're sandbagging the borders of Lubbock as we type?

  • Mittens Howell, III

    Some fucked up sads happening over at FreeRepublic right now:

    "Just unbelievable. We’re done as a nation. Contrast this with 1980! We are just not the people we were when I was a kid.

    Just had a baby girl so I won’t be committing suicide."

    Ummm. Oops.

    Also this:

    "If obama wins and it looks like he will… I will shut down my 40 year old business early next year and reduce my footprint as much as possible. I will not feed the beast that is eating me… any more than I have to. I am John Galt."

    hehehe

    • BadKitty904

      If it's not too early – and to quote the GOP in 2000 – "We won. Get over it."

    • DixvilleCrotch

      The Jerb Creators will all be retreating to Galt's Gulch

      • bobbert

        We should be so lucky.

    • fartknocker

      I yet these some fucks want social security, love a large military, enjoy drone strikes while sitting on their fat, white asses watching Faux news, and drive on roads paid for with tax dollars. Boo-fucking-hoo.

      And Florida is still a fucked up place to vote according to MSNBC.

    • Naked_Bunny

      We are just not the people we were when I was a kid.

      Good to know we've improved a little.

  • SigDeFlyinMonky

    The continued support of the internal "logic" of the wingnut narrative/mythos/eschatology must be preserve at all costs. No sacrifice of truth or self respect on its altar is too high a price to pay. Eventually, we hope, the remnant keepers of the flame will resemble "Quest for Fire". (Without Rae Dawn Chong, of course!)

  • ProgressiveInga

    O/T but $arah Palin on Faux Nooz right now. Not a good look, 1/2-term Gov…

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    Megyn spoonfeeding questions to Jonah Goldberg about media bias — lordy, I feel like I'm watching David Vitter and a call girl right now.

  • Barrelhse

    I can't stomach the "Romney" "family", also.
    Am I bad for being happy if they lose?

    • BadKitty904

      No. Not one bit.

  • Lucidamente1

    Please, Fox, please call them "nattering nabobs of negativity."
