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

by Kris E. Benson


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.

Just shows, the only voices that you can trust are the ones in your head.

Barbara_ November 6, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Jeff just turned on Fox News. That unnatural black hair color of Bret Baier is neither fair, nor balanced.

SaintNixon November 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Babs, it's scewed, I tells ya!

Barbara_ November 6, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Okay, I'm really high right now.

BadKitty904 November 6, 2012 at 10:07 pm

The Big Cat has switched from pouring wine to packing bowls. So much for classes tomorrow…

MittBorg November 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

(takes a DEEEP toke) Say wut?

OkieDokieDog November 6, 2012 at 10:27 pm

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!

SnarkOff November 6, 2012 at 10:05 pm

OT, but I fucking hate Florida. Fucking Florida.

MittBorg November 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Bamz' 15K votes ahead right now.

comrad_darkness November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

On the bright side, the republican plan to raise all the oceans will do away with florida.

NellCote71 November 6, 2012 at 10:14 pm

But. . . Alan Grayson, ees bueno? no?

Monsieur_Grumpe November 6, 2012 at 10:05 pm

From Minnesota:
10% reporting
53% Bachmann (Retard)
47% Graves (D)

Sigh.

SnarkOff November 6, 2012 at 10:07 pm

This is a good thing, really. Wonkette would be no fun without Crazy Eyez.

SaintNixon November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Our generation's Katherine Harris.

BadKitty904 November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

I dunno. Pink Sugar was just dumb as a brick. Crazy Eyes is…crazy.

tiredalways November 6, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Obama's BFF Axelrod on MSNBC looks very tired :( Hope they all get good night's sleep tonight – including all of us here on wonks

iburl November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Tragg and Mix and Munch and Egg and Tronk and Mittens will not sleep soundly tonight.

iburl November 6, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Aiken!! Goes!! Down!!

Abort! Abort! Abort!

comrad_darkness November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

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

fartknocker November 6, 2012 at 10:18 pm

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

Mittaplasia November 6, 2012 at 10:22 pm

I was hoping Missourians could shut that whole thing down.

Schmannnity November 6, 2012 at 10:07 pm

I am ready. Fox news: Blow me.

Monsieur_Grumpe November 6, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Todd Akin has lost!
Good riddance

ProgressiveInga November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

McCaskill shut that whole thing down!

Lot_49 November 6, 2012 at 10:14 pm

Nice!

Joshua Norton November 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Unleash the Hoverrounds!!

weejee November 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

NBC just call New Mexico for the President!

NellCote71 November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Texas needs to annex NM for all sorts of reasons.

Barrelhse November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

I want free stuff.

BadKitty904 November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

*NOW*, dammit. Plus those cakes we like. Also, too.

NellCote71 November 6, 2012 at 10:16 pm

But the ducks will get you in the end.

Lazy Media November 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

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.

MittBorg November 6, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Sherrod Brown keeps his seat! Yay!

glasspusher November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

yeah, just saw that, nice.

zedbot November 6, 2012 at 10:10 pm

*plays Ted Nugent backwards* Blooooo is Gawwwd.

mavenmaven November 6, 2012 at 10:10 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:14 pm

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

Lot_49 November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Oh no…Mittens took Wyoming!

MittBorg November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

VA looks to be RLY close, folks.

glasspusher November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:11 pm

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

NellCote71 November 6, 2012 at 10:17 pm

South African chard for me. In honor of all sorts of things.

ChillBill November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

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

PubOption November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

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

Lazy Media November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Tammy fucking legless Duckworth, motherfuckers!

BaldarTFlagass November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

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.

boskolives November 6, 2012 at 10:23 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

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

Mittens Howell, III November 6, 2012 at 10:12 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:16 pm

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

DixvilleCrotch November 6, 2012 at 10:21 pm

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

bobbert November 6, 2012 at 10:33 pm

We should be so lucky.

fartknocker November 6, 2012 at 10:23 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 11:23 pm

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

Good to know we've improved a little.

SigDeFlyinMonky November 6, 2012 at 10:14 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

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

SayItWithWookies November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

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 November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

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

BadKitty904 November 6, 2012 at 10:17 pm

No. Not one bit.

Lucidamente1 November 6, 2012 at 10:15 pm

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

Mittaplasia November 6, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Pusillanimous pussyfooters, also, too.

weejee November 6, 2012 at 10:18 pm

ABC just put Minnesota in the Prez' column!

bikerlaureate November 6, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Faux News cannot be outlawed fast enough or ignored hard enough.

Mittens Howell, III November 6, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Peggy Noonan and David Brooks making mad passionate love as the world ends.

ProgressiveInga November 6, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Brooks is the power-bottom, right?

Limeylizzie November 6, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Dear God, what a horrendous visual.

Limeylizzie November 6, 2012 at 10:25 pm

10.23pm Eastern time and i just made a very strong cup of coffee. Hey any Wonketteers want to get a celebratory Presidential and post-Sandy drink/coffee anytime soonish?

ProgressiveInga November 6, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Egg Romney is hating you people right now.

HobbesEvilTwin November 6, 2012 at 10:27 pm

loser says what?

ProgressiveInga November 6, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Scotty Brown concession speech on C-SPAN. "Hardest part is telling my truck that I'll be taking her home." WTF?

Buckminster November 6, 2012 at 10:47 pm

As usual, Fox sux

Buckminster November 6, 2012 at 10:48 pm

NPR stuff up here is excellent. Fair and pretty calm.

Not_Mother November 6, 2012 at 10:48 pm
