a very interesting story that appeared today

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2033808/Tony-Blair-godfather-Rupert-Murdochs-children.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

a wee bit of the article

''But now it has emerged that Mr Blair is also a godfather to Grace, as is Rupert Murdoch’s eldest son Lachlan.
The ceremony, hosted by Queen Rania of Jordan, took place at the spot where Jesus is said to have been baptised.''

lol oh dear 'phony' tony and 'god' murdoch. seems they got a wee bit carried away with themselves

wonder what 'favours' phony tony had to do for the dirty digger?

Interesting you take shots at Maddow, who has shown herself, while openly admitting she's a liberal, to be fair and even handed when questioning her guests regardless of party. She has also had no problem in apologizing and correcting mistake when she makes them.

She's a graduate of Standford, is a Rhodes Scholar (They don't just hand those out, btw), and holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in politics from OXFORD.

A few of her awards:
In 1994, Maddow was an Honorable Mention in the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Prize in Ethics.[54]

In June 2009, Maddow's MSNBC show was the only cable news show nominated for a Television Critics Association award in the Outstanding Achievement in News and Information category.[55]

In July 2010, Maddow was presented with a Maggie Award for her ongoing reporting of healthcare reform, the murder of Dr. George Tiller, and the anti-abortion movement.[58]

In August 2010, Maddow won the Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award, which was presented by The Interfaith Alliance.[59] Past honorees included Larry King, Tom Brokaw, and the late Peter Jennings.[59]

Now, lets see your female talking bubble heads on Fox beat that CV.

Like it or not, Maddow is intelligent, well informed, and most of all, she's HONEST.

All politicians are crooks. I watch both MSNBC, and Fox News. They are both attacking the other party, they tell you what you want to hear, and the "facts" are based of what they want you to believe.

OK...in the spirit of this 5th grade level "My Left-Leaning TV Personality is better than your Right-Leaning TV Personality" contest, here they are:


Gretchen Carlson was raised in Anoka, Minnesota and graduated from Anoka-Hennepin School District 11's Anoka High School, where she was the 1984 class valedictorian. Carlson, a gifted violinist, graduated cum laude from Stanford University in 1990, with a degree in sociology (organizational behavior). While at Stanford University, she studied abroad at Oxford University


Pretty much a dead heat with Rachael Maddow...other than the gifted musician part, & Carlson not getting the same award as Larry King. LMAO


Martha MacCallum earned her bachelor's degree in Political Science from St. Lawrence University. She also studied at the Circle in the Square Theater School and founded the Miranda Theater Company in New York


A political news anchor/contributor....with a political science degree & a passion for liberal arts. Par for the course..liberal or otherwise.


Molly Line is a graduate of Virginia Tech where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and Political Science.


Another political news anchor/correspondent ....with communication & political science degrees. Par for the course again..liberal or otherwise.



Courtney Friel earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from San Diego State University.


Still another educated "bimbo"??? Cant be!!


Julie Banderas graduated with a bachelor's degree from Emerson College


This may be scraping the bottom of the barrell for you, so attack away!! Just remember she has one(1) more degree than Snooki, who earns 10 times more than her..


Megyn Kelly pursued an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Syracuse University and later pursued a J.D. from Albany Law School; she served as an Editor of the Albany Law Review while enrolled at Albany Law School.
Following her graduation from Albany Law School, Kelly practiced law for nine years. Her first action was for an associate in the Chicago Office of Bickel & Brewer LL during which the time when she co-wrote an article for the American Bar Association's Litigation journal entitled "The Conflicting Roles of Lawyer as Director."[8] She often practiced as a litigator with Jones Day in New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C. before leaving to pursue a career in journalism.


Not bad! The 'dumb blonde/bimbo" campaign is wearing kinda thin.


Harris Faulkner studied business economics and mass communications at the University of California Santa Barbara. After graduation she worked as a junior accountant before becoming a freelance writer for L.A. Weekly, contributing as a business writer.

Faulkner has received six Emmy Awards including the 2005 Emmy for Best Newscaster and Best News Special.


That rounds out the stupid Fox lineup. Although I like watching Rachael Maddow, her pedestal isnt quite as tall as you think it looks.

Fox Doctors Hoffa Speech To Fabricate Call For Violence
September 05, 2011 4:55 pm ET by Matt Gertz

Right-wing bloggers misled by dishonest Fox News video editing are attacking Teamsters President James Hoffa for supposedly urging violence against Tea Party activists during a Labor Day speech. Conservatives are also attacking President Obama, who appeared at the event, for "sanctioning violence against fellow Americans" by failing to denounce Hoffa. But fuller context included in other Fox segments makes clear that Hoffa wasn't calling for violence but was actually urging the crowd to vote out Republican members of Congress.

With all that education, you can't blame what they do on stupidity. That leaves the rest of us to believe it's intentional.

Really..I was watching her coverage when that stuff went down in Egypt..she was blatantly pro rebel....they were doing a live broadcast with two of her coworkers standing on a balcony, in the background a group of rebels pulled a man from a truck and beat him until he stopped moving..this was unfortunate for her because she kept harping about how peaceful the rebels were....the rebels then threw his lifeless body into the bed of the pick up, they started pushing the truck for some reason...here is the question she asked her coworkers" do you think they are taking him to get medical help" or something like that...the coworkers were dumbstruck...in a later broadcast the same truck could be seen in the background burning...Yep she's intelligent ....lol

I think that any agenda driven media outlet is Evil...under reporting, not reporting, reporting with bias,,it's all the same to me....

Really? Media matters...lol Bashing FOX while posting links to Media matters that is some funny stuff....

Not as funny as people defending Fox.

It is clear that many that support Fox ignore the facts with regards to their lies and deceptions (which this thread is full of) and can only offer rhetoric in return and no facts to prove that Fox is neither Evil or Stupid.

Fox Doctors Hoffa Speech To Fabricate Call For Violence

September 05, 2011 4:55 pm ET by Matt Gertz

Right-wing bloggers misled by dishonest Fox News video editing are attacking Teamsters President James Hoffa for supposedly urging violence against Tea Party activists during a Labor Day speech. Conservatives are also attacking President Obama, who appeared at the event, for "sanctioning violence against fellow Americans" by failing to denounce Hoffa. But fuller context included in other Fox segments makes clear that Hoffa wasn't calling for violence but was actually urging the crowd to vote out Republican members of Congress.

During the segment that the bloggers have latched onto, Fox edited out the bolded portion of Hoffa's comments:

HOFFA: Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a b*tches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!

In an initial report on Hoffa's speech at 1 p.m. on Fox News, Ed Henry reported that Hoffa said that "we'll remember in November who's with the working people" and "said of the Tea Party and of Republicans, 'let's take these sons of b*tches out.'"

Henry made clear during that segment that Hoffa's comments were references to voting out Republican members of Congress, not to violence. And roughly 20 minutes later, he explained on Twitter that the "full quote" of the "take these son of a b*tches out" comment is "Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back & keep the eye on the prize, let's take these sons of b*tches out":

But in a second segment that ran at roughly the same time as Henry's tweet, Fox News dishonestly edited the speech in the manner seen above. Andrew Breitbart's Big sites, Real Clear Politics, The Daily Caller, the Media Research Center, and the Drudge Report have all highlighted that footage, using it to condemn "the violence emanating from union thug bosses" and demand that Obama "denounce" the comments.

In the Fox News segment that included the dishonestly cropped video, Republican consultant Brad Blakeman decried the comments as "thuggery at its best" and "the kind of remarks you'd expect out of Tony Soprano," and commented that "when a union president says 'let's take these sons of b*tches out,' that usually means someone's legs are going to get broken, somebody's going to disappear." Meanwhile, anchor Megyn Kelly somehow did not mention Henry's previous explanation that the comments were references to voting Republicans out of office.

Andrew Breitbart operative and CNN contributor Dana Loesch quickly followed up the attack on Twitter, claiming soon after the Fox segment and Henry tweet that Hoffa "threatens tea party voters" and that if Obama "doesn't condemn then he is sanctioning violence against fellow Americans by silence":....

Breitbart's websites also jumped onboard, circulating the cropped Fox News video of the Hoffa speech and describing it as a "threat of violence." Other right-wing media outlets soon followed.

Loesch's comments in particular were already way over the top. But they became truly embarrassing at around 3 p.m., when the whole story collapsed after Fox finally got around to airing what Henry had called the "full quote" of Hoffa's "take these son of a b*tches out" comment:

As Henry noted, Hoffa was actually referencing "what he thinks unions are going to do to take Republicans out of office." We'll see if that puts a stop to the ongoing right-wing freakout over the comments.

UPDATE: Hours after Fox News aired the full context of the "take these son of a b*tches out" comment, the network reverted to form. In the first segment on The Five, Fox again aired a dishonestly edited version of Hoffa's remarks that cropped out his references to voting. Watch:

Really?...funny to see Liberals worrying about context and what not...here's the thing ..he used violent terms such as War,battle,only one way to beat and to win,we like a good fight,they've got a war and there is only going to be one winner,were going to win that War,describes the unions as Obamas Army, ready to march..then after all of that instead of saying let's vote these so and so's out he says" Let's take these sons of ****es out"...not sure about the rest of you but I understand Take these sons of ****es out as slang for kill....

Liberals can try and argue that he was only referring to voting but given unions propensity towards violence historically, I would say his statements were double entendres in the very least..

To answer that question, "No, Fox News is NEITHER evil Nor stupid." Fox News is a business, and serves to entertain and inform people, and in doing so, they earn money by selling ad space and gaining subscribers.
You could ask yourself if fast food companies are evil, since they cause people to become obese. You could ask yourself if tobacco companies are evil, since they cause people to die from cancer. You could ask yourself if car companies are evil, people die in cars, and cars pollute our atmosphere. You could ask yourself if drug companies are evil, many thousands die each year from incorrect usage .
How about oil companies?
How about adult beverage makers?
How about

This thread is about Fox not telling the truth.

My post as an example of that.

Feel free to defend Fox all you want, but the facts are in.

They lie and distort the truth to fit an agenda, this fact has been proven over and over again.

Your failure to recognize this, is just that, a failure to recognize.

What's also scary is how few people use more than one source for their news. I read somewhere that a huge number of people think Jon Stewart's show is a news show.

Hey Paulina,

Yep I want a discussion.

Is Fox News Evil or Stupid?
Feel free to defend or refute the facts that Fox news lies and distorts the truths.

Anything beyond that will be see as either a "red herring" or just derp.

Awww how cute you can regurgitate a Fox talking point, yet still unable to actually contribute to the discussion, by either making a point or defending one.

In the world of reality, Jon Stewart has become the most trusted name in news even while he mocks the MSM. There has always been much truth in mockery and being the court fool. Jon excells above the fox clowns by far, and in truthiness among those who judge such things.
