Time To Be Honest: I Watched FAUX News Tuesday Night

November 7, 2012

FUAX News is not something that is welcome in our home.  The old saying in Pravda there is no  news, in Izvestia there is no truth comes to mind when thinking about the Republican Party ‘news’ channel.    Going back to the days of the Soviet Union and their use of media for political aims is the most apt way to consider Faux News.   There just is no reason to view FAUX News as they have no journalistic credibility.

But I did make an exception to the no FAUX News rule on Election Night.

I told those gathered in our home that we had to watch FAUX News at the time it was clear President Obama was going to be re-elected for another term.

“We have to watch as the salt is ground into the wound,” was the way I phrased it last night.

It was a riot to watch the FAUX NEWS conservative apologists try to spin and weave, duck and dodge, and finally come to terms with the fact they had lost.

One of the classic moments took place when Karl Rove tried to make the math go away–a Republican trick that never works.

    Unfortunately, the video has been removed, but did I not hear Rove refer to FOX, as “our network”! At least he got that right, it’s the GOP’s network.

    🙂 Oh, you are missing a lot, they have hilarious entertaining value to them at times. Stewart and Colbert like to mine “the best of” Fox to spice up their comedy routines with something dumb, yet said in a serious manner. Good old Poe’s law in action….
    They are worse than Pravda in a sense, for at least Pravda stuck with the same type of agitprop all the years of its existence, Fox is a little political brothel whose moral values are always up for trade to a highest bidder, ever eager to start kissing the rear end of a new political retrograde, some fresh rightwing nut de jour

    Lest we forget, Rove isn’t just an analyst or commentator on Fox. He, through his Crossroads PAC, was a huge advertiser on the cacaphony of channels owned by News Corp.

    This was no more or less than the owner of the used car lot threatening the local editor over a bad review of one of the cars by a national outlet. Watching Rove melt was like watching the court-martial in The Caine Mutiny. Scary and sad all at once.
