“Aha,” David Axelrod said to the President, “I think I’ve figured out what your problem is.”

by editor on March 11, 2010

The morning crew at Fox News seethes with rage 24 hours a day. Even when they’re not on the air.

The President’s socialist agenda isn’t the problem. His horrible appointments aren’t the problem. And his massive deficits aren’t the problem. No. The problem is that just too many people watch that damn Fox News.

The Telegraph UK reports the denial on the Potomac:

“Obama’s big problem,” a senior Democrat told me, “is that four times as many people watch Fox News as watch CNN.” The Fox network is a remarkable cultural phenomenon which almost shocks those of us from a country where a technical rule of impartiality is applied in the broadcast media. With little rest, it pours out rage 24 hours a day: its message is of the construction of the socialist state, the hijacking of America by “progressives” who now dominate institutions, the indoctrination of children, the undermining of religion and the expropriation of public money for these nefarious projects. The public loves it, and it is manifestly stirring up political activism against Mr Obama, and also against those in the Republican Party who are not deemed conservatives. However, it is arguable whether the now-reorganising Right is half as effective in its assault on the President as some of Mr Obama’s own party are.

Got that? Fox pours out rage 24 hours a day. Because rage is really appealing and people are really drawn to watch it 24 hours a day.

Morons. That’s it. No other comment necessary.

Everyone is screaming Fox is bashing Obama, Fox is screaming all the other networks are in love with Obama. Everyone of them are reporting the news the left is mad because everyone is listening to Fox and the right is mad because they believe Fox. if ( in the absence of the truth the people will believe anything) is true. People have the opportunity to hear what is happening from both sides and the majority of people are leaning toward Fox, that tells me the collective thought process of the diverse culture we live in is coming to a common denominator. Even if you don’t want to believe what Fox is saying you have to admit if they where wrong the Obama adminastration would have destroyed them already. Obama wants nothing more than to shut them up but he cant give a rebuttal to the accusations of Glenn Beck. I guess Glenn is right.

Okay… The problem is not the fact that he and his people suck majorly, is Fox. The problem is Fox and the solution is either to diminish their credibility or to push the alternate news cable channels to counteract Fox. Uhm this smells like trying to destroy 1st amendments rights. YET if Fox was pro Obama it will be all good. Stupidity.

I only watch FOX today. I switched to FOX from the Clinton News Network to get the truth in reporting. I accidentally caught some Olbermann a few weeks ago and he was downright insulting to me personally. I swear I will never watch MSNBC, CNN, or whatever else is out there pretending to tell the news truthfully.

However no more of the idiot O’Reilly since he supports worker ID cards. I am a small business owner and know the laws we already have. They only need be enforced and the problem will go away. If I wanted to pay an illegal immigrant under the table, no ID card could stop me. Heil Hitler, now show me your worker ID card.

The Good: Benjamin Franklin: “Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” – Get it now O’Reilly? Franklin was a much smarter man than you will ever be.

The Bad: Pelosi: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” – WTF is that supposed to mean?

The Ugly: “Olbermann” – nuff said

I know what we can do Davey, we can call Air America and see what they think.

This has nothing to do with the ‘rage’ of Fox or even slamming Fox per se — the money quote is “shocks those of us from a country where a technical rule of impartiality is applied in the broadcast media. ”

This is a blatant attempt by the left to once again argue in favor of placing the old ‘Equal Time’ rule back in effect – which as we all know wouldn’t actually be equal time at all considering …

Is it just me or is this too simple for the “progressives” to see. All Dear Leader has to do is…..drum roll please…revamp CNN to spew rage 24/7. If the formula works for Fox, why wouldn’t it work at the Clinton New Network – on yeah, it isn’t their’s anymore. It is the same thing with the Left’s wildly unpopular radio programs, they just don’t throw around racism and invective the way Rush does. It must work on the Right, why not the left?

How about the throw away line above,”the now-reorganising Right” – I love when they stumble across a phrase that encourages a false premise like this. Guess the Right has been at sea for some time and is just now fumbling around for some direction and leadership.
