Fox News exposed on its own turf

What happens on Fox “News” if you challenge one of their most-cherished narratives?

If you’re Tom Ricks, author, Pulitzer Prize winner and former military affairs reporter for The Washington Post, the interview ends abruptly and you’re sent quickly packing, probably ensuring that you will never see Fox air again.

Nicely done, Mr. Ricks. (Transcript below).

It got me to thinking, though. Back in the day, David Allan Coe had a country hit titled “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” which he claimed was damn near the perfect country song. All it lacked was a mention of “momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison or gettin’ drunk.” So Steve Goodman, who had co-written the song with John Prine, sat down to write Coe a new closing verse. It went like this:

“Well, I was drunk the day my momma got out of prison,
And I went to pick her up in the rain.
But before I could get to the station in the pick-up truck,
She got runned over by a damned old train.”

So … what would be the perfect Fox “News” non-story? If you were a Fox “News” producer, and you wanted to dream up the segment that would punch every button for your audience, what would it be?

The Benghazi attacks were carried out by the New Black Panthers to recover evidence that Obama had really been born in Kenya?

—————

TRANSCRIPT:

JON SCOTT (co-host): Pressure mounting on the Obama administration over its response to the deadly attack on our consulate in Benghazi, as [Fox News correspondent] Catherine Herridge reported just minutes ago. Several top GOP lawmakers are backing off their criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, instead focusing on the White House. Two senators even expressing concerns about a possible White House cover-up. Let’s talk about it with Tom Ricks. He is author of The Generals. He has spent decades covering our military. He joins us now.

Senator John McCain said in the past he would block any attempt to nominate Susan Rice to become U.N. — I’m sorry, secretary of state. She’s currently the U.N. ambassador. He seems to be backing away from that. What do you make of it?

RICKS: I think that Benghazi generally was hyped, by this network especially, and that now that the campaign is over,  I think he’s backing off a little bit. They’re not going to stop Susan Rice from being secretary of state.

SCOTT: When you have four people dead, including the first dead U.N. ambassador — U.S. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype?

RICKS: How many security contractors died in Iraq, do you know?

SCOTT: I don’t.

RICKS: No. Nobody does, because nobody cared. We know that several hundred died, but there was never an official count done of security contractors dead in Iraq. So when I see this focus on what was essentially a small firefight, I think, number one, I’ve covered a lot of firefights. It’s impossible to figure out what happens in them sometimes. And second, I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of Republican Party.

SCOTT: All right. Tom Ricks, thanks very much for joining us today.

RICKS: You’re welcome.

Also, I found his discounting of an ambassador’s death in comparison to the deaths of government intelligence contractors somewhat….disagreeable…

I’m not big Fox advocate to be sure, but they are the only ones to routinely air the likes of this guy, Al Sharpton, Harris/Dawkins and others who can intelligently post their positions…at least they try…

The Benghazi attackers got their weapons via Fast and Furious and were led by Obama’s “real” kenyan cousin who dated Monica Lewinsky back in the day. Of course it all ties back to the Whitewater Arkansas land deal.

Stevie Ray, as Ricks noted later, the segment was supposed to go to discuss combat readiness of U.S. Army units, but it was ended before they could get that far. Ricks was chided by Fox folks afterward for being “rude.”

So no, no points for being open or transparent. Nice try though.

The primary method of communications for the Benghazi fast & furious attackers was their obamaphones, which everyone knows allow illegal aliens to speak Arabic. Most of the attackers were illegal alien dayworkers that obama’s cousin “Red Archie” picked up at home depot on the way to attacking the Consulate. They were paid with foodstamps.

When the media, such as you and Fox, became news, the news became a fossil…you have to act like an archeologist to sift thru the political/ideological crap to understand that generally speaking, you, Fox news and the like are all the same…half truths are the most we can expect from either..

Shame they rained on the Liberal parade…the outrage is somewhat indicative of the fear the Libs have of being challenged in the press..

Can anyone explain the relevance of belittling the death of a US ambassador by comparison to intelligence contractor deaths? Help as clearly I’m too ignorant to make the connection..

Here is one for you.

NEW BOMBSHELL: President Obama engaged in secret talks with Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan to institute aggressive “social justice” policy as quid pro quo for huge minority support in 2012 election.

…and as for the idea that Fox puts certain people (especially minorities) on for no other reason than to parrot the narrative and give false confirmation of right wing assumptions and prejudices. Absolutely! NOTHING sells to an airhead better than having as stooge placed in front of said airhead and says what said airhead wants to hear AND THE STOOGE LOOKS LIKE THE OBJECT OF AIRHEAD’S CONTEMPT. To this type of person it registers as instant and bonafide credibility. They never look beyond the surface. I can tell you without a doubt as minority it is KRYSTAL clear ( because I AM “Krystal’s Balls”) when another minority is presnting legitimate criticism in discussing minority issues and one who is a Stooge. Believe it! it extends beyond that to things in general. I just use that as an example because I key on many of the bombastic personalities I see on there with brown faces, which really is an affront in and of itself.

Most of us understand that there’s very little, if any, difference between a crazed Muslim street mob and crazed Muslim terrorists. In fact, they are interchangeable. Both Fox and the Republicans know this but chose to completely disregard the feelings of the families of our killed Benghazi people for monetary and political gain.

This kind of behavior is despicable but fully approved by the cons here and shows just how dirt common they all are.

For every stupid move made by Fox, there is a corresponding and equally stupid move by MSNBC. It is not news, Jay, to point out that Fox (and its liberal counter MSNBC) stir ratings by tacking right or left. In fact, I think there should be a moratorium against watching either. As a country and society, we need conversation and sharing of competing viewpoints in a civil manner, not in the competitive gotcha way of two cable networks (or AJC bloggers).

Can anyone explain the relevance of belittling the death of a US ambassador by comparison to intelligence contractor deaths? Help as clearly I’m too ignorant to make the connection..

Let me try this one out. Nobody’s belitting the death of a US ambassador at all. What he tried to do was point out the hypocrisy that’s on display in regards to Fox News when it comes to American deaths.

When did they whip up a fury over contractors dying overseas? When did they whip up a fury over military personnel dying overseas? The only reason they’ve hyped up Benghazi is because they thought it would sway the presidential race. If it were indeed newsworthy, ALL media would have been over the story. As it has come out, all other media outlets appear to want to wait for the results of the investigation before jumping on the story instead of pushing the story.

This story is no different than BP Agent Brian Terry and the “Fast and Furious” crap. How many Border Patrol Agents have been killed in the line of duty? I bet not a single Fox News talking head can answer that question. Yet, they parade Terry around as though he’s some trophy of war.

I don’t watch Fox News as I despise the bandwith they take up on my satellite signal. I don’t care much at all for partisaned bullsh*t masquerading as “news”. Furthermore, I don’t care for the opinion-as-news reporting style they engage.

I don’t see the repentance in Murdock after he hacked into the communications illegally of his news subjects. I mean I saw he and his Leona Helmsley type wife appear before Parliament looking somewhat remorseful under the purview of the country thinking of encircling him into a criminal activity, yet he runs FOX like a thug with no conscience. He literally presses the issues of honesty to their limits and gathers a lynch mob around him, to distract from his illicit activities, as he rakes in billions.

As we watch the intrusion of the FBI into the private life of an Army general under somewhat sketchy circumstances that ended in disaster for the CIA director under Obama, you wonder if he is not a shark back in these U.S. waters too. He is like a serial pervert, not unlike the Jimmy Sevile only a different racket, with innocent private citizens being violated in the same immoral sickness of a child perversion. Like Sevile this habitual violator of the freedom of the press needs to be exposed and dealt with as a lesson to others in the Watergate heritage he represents. A country cannot be proud of this kind of nastiness, yet most on the right rebel in it.

These things are not either/or propositions. Just because someone doesn’t share in your “outrage” means that they feel the polar opposite of you.

As far as national security, do you not realize that the primary security of the consulate in Benghazi was the responsibility of the host country? That would make it more of a national security issue for Libya as opposed to us. I seriously doubt you’ll see masses of armed extremists marching or protesting through any city in America.

Honestly, with all of the childishness going on from the left and the right, I think America deserves the gridlock at this point. If the majority of Americans cannot recognize that the mental midgets on both sides that they keep reelecting (best demonstrated by Joe Biden and Michele Bachmann) do not have their best interests in mind, then we deserve whatever comes down the road.

It was simply that you fail to understand that bringing up child molestation in such a fashion and in the context in which you did was hyperbole run amok. That’s just my opinion, but I have strong opinions on this matter and flippant comparisons to rape. Two of my particularly touchy spots.

an example of the “news” you get when watching that crap:

” Black kids get kilt at the rate of eight per day in Preezy’s home town ”

now, a rational person might hear a factoid like that and do a bit of math and say “huh… 2,500 black kids killed in Chicago per year? that is obviously bullsh.t, and so is this channel.”

If you are stupid AND bigoted AND incredibly gullible, however…

Perhaps Mr. Biden mistook the title “VP” to mean Very Plagiaristic.

Real Addict vs. A Faux Cracked Addict:

*Real Addict may react with anger, denial, or helplessness.

*Faux News Addict: Jay, this tells me nothing, keep trying though, you will get there one day..

*Real Addict : Their helplessness may take the form of resignation that they are too addicted to change, or perhaps they simply do not have the willpower or desire to stop abusing drugs or alcohol.

*Faux News Addict: Fox news is the only unbiased,honest,forthright,nonjudgemental,straightforward,unvarnished reporting of the political news today. Unlike nBC,ABC,CBS which feverishly wanted the Prez O to have a second term.

Coincidence? I think not………………

The clip (repeated hundreds of times) of the Iraqi throwing the shoe at W got much more play than the Benghazi attack in the traditional media. The lack of coverage in the media, of the Benghazi attack and the Obama administrations coverup, says a great deal about how important the Ambassadors death was. Obviously the left, as represented by Mr. Ricks and the media, did not think this was a big deal.

I suspect it’s so that he can put together a new party with Tzipi Livni and of moderate leftists…looking toward the domestic issues as his focus, a counter to the swing right.

Uh, maybe just a week or something.

So no big deal, folks. Move along now…

stands, regarding that obvious BS about eight of Those People (or more accurately, their little ones) getting killed each day in Chitown, don’t be too hard on Andy.

His beloved, do no wrong GOP is having a bad month year decade.

BTW, did Kyle let you back in next door yet, Andy?
