Faux News

‘Simpsons’ Nails Fox News

“The Simpsons” has never shied away from biting the hand that feeds it. In this classic clip, the show eviscerates Fox News in what may be the greatest ever indictment of the network. It’s worth watching multiple times just to take in the “crawl.”

Fox News Debate Implodes

Liberal bloggers had gone crazy when they heard the Nevada Democratic Party had agreed to co-sponsor a debate with Fox News. On Friday the event was canceled after a series of developments. Barack Obama was freezing out Fox reporters, John Edwards and Bill Richardson announced they wouldn’t participate in the debate and, finally, Fox President Roger Ailes (above) brought the whole thing crashing down with a botched bad joke.

Fox News Targets Obama

Documentarian Robert Greenwald has collected some of Fox News’ worst smears against Barack Obama, who sensibly responded to the attacks by freezing out Fox reporters. At the end of the video, Greenwald urges the Nevada Democratic Party, which plans to allow the “fair and balanced” network to host a debate, to do the same.

Jon Stewart on Fox News

Stewart on Fox’s Obama Smear

Jon Stewart is at his ironic best in this riff on Fox News’ egregiously irresponsible story on Barack Obama’s background.

Fox News Resurrects ‘Path to 9/11’ Propaganda

Fox News intends to broadcast unaired footage from ABC’s propagandistic miniseries “The Path to 9/11.” The scene in question, which suggested that Sandy Berger rejected a proposal to assassinate Osama bin Laden, was toned down after the series’ wild inaccuracies and political motivations led to a national firestorm.

Colbert and O'Reilly

Colbert vs. O’Reilly

Stephen Colbert appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Jan. 20 and had this to say to his inspiration: “You know what I hate about people who criticize you? They criticize what you say, but they never give you credit for how loud you say it.”
Update: Watch O’Reilly on the Colbert Report

Fox News Plays the Name Game

The folks at Fox News, always innovative in the ways of fairness and balance, do some of their most inflammatory work on the banners that hover at the bottom of the screen. Not to rest at mislabeling party affiliation, they’ve taken to editorializing given names.

Cavuto and Frank

Barney Frank Does Battle With Fox’s Cavuto

One thing we love about Rep. Barney Frank is his total unwillingness to allow an interviewer to step on his answer, misrepresent his argument and then slither away. Neil Cavuto practices the dark arts for Fox News in this particular interview, as Frank steadfastly defends his position on exorbitant CEO pay against an avalanche of nasal smugness.

Hitler and Rummy

Conservative Radio Host Wants Dissenters Detained

Conservative radio personality Mike Gallagher appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to vent his anger at “The View” host Joy Behar for comparing Donald Rumsfeld to Hitler. Without a shred of irony, Gallagher then called for the government to round up Behar, Matt Damon and Keith Olbermann and “take the whole bunch of them and put them in a detention camp until this war is over, because they’re a bunch of traitors.”

O'Reilly

Dan Rather Hurt O’Reilly’s Feelings

In what must have been conceived as a self-parody, Bill O’Reilly and other notables from the Fox News circus lambasted Dan Rather for his accusation that the network receives talking points from the White House, and demanded an apology. On various Fox programs, O’Reilly and friends alternated between vehemently denying the claim and struggling with the meaning of balance. O’Reilly: “I basically say, look, we have people like [Kirsten Powers] on. We have Michelle [Malkin] on. This is balanced.”

“The Real Victims of Fox News…”

...weren’t the liberals it attacked but the conservatives who believed it,” writes Nicholas Kristof at the N.Y. Times. “Be very wary of Mr. Bush’s effort to tame the press. Watchdogs can be mean, dumb and obnoxious, but it would be even more dangerous to trade them in for lap dogs.”

Cheney’s Suite Demands

When the vice president spends the night at a hotel, he requires all TVs pre-tuned to Fox News (natch), room temperature set at 68 and caffeine-free Diet Sprite, among other things.

Guess Why Cheney Came Out of Hiding

It apparently wasn’t the vice president’s sense of duty to the country that precipitated his sit-down interview with Fox News. It was the president, no dummy when it comes to PR, who made Cheney sit down in front of the cameras, according to Time magazine.
