Faux News bias is out of control
Fritz of On the Fritz emailed me about the most heinous blog the other day. Faux News is affiliated with a piece of trash site called Tongue Tied. The alleged purpose of the blog is to point out speech Norvell deems is too “politically correct,” but the lowlifes posting on it are clearly immigrants from Freeperville. Fritz:
It will make you sick to your stomach — especially the comments from some genius who calls himself “Hate Buttslammers”! These people make the Freepers look somewhat sane and informed.
I seriously can’t believe that this many people are so uninformed about AIDS in this day and age. What a bunch of knuckle-draggers! There are so many unbelievable posts here. But this one is my “favorite”:
AIDS is preventable. AIDS is a lifestyle disease. In western countries, AIDS could be brought under control in one generation if homosexual men would keep their pants zipped. Unfortunately, the typical homosexual activist is also an extremely selfish individual who puts sex above all else: Sex is before health, sex is before religion, sex is before politics, sex is before a career, sex is before dinner, sex is for dinner — sexual gratification completely rules the lives of these people. As a result they “demand a cure” so they can continue an unhealthy sexual lifestyle. It doesn’t matter to them that they are severely cutting into budgets for non-preventable diseases such as cancer, muscular dystrophy and diabetes. I must repeat — homosexual activists are among the most selfish, self serving individuals on the face of the earth.
Now that you’ve finished hurling. Fritz continues with some more tidbits about this lovely site’s connection to Fox News.
Fox News features this blog on their Web site once a week. Here are the archives on the Fox News site.
Norvell’s latest column is up on the Fox News Views web site, linking back to the low-rent Tongue Tied.
Not that Norvell is trying to hide anything about slant of the newschannel/news site/blog he toils on. In the May 20, 2005 European edition of the WSJ, he really let the cat out of the bag regarding the winger bias at Fox, which still clings to the ridiculous public assertion that “we report, you decide” actually means anything. (Slate):
Even we at Fox News manage to get some lefties on the air occasionally, and often let them finish their sentences before we club them to death and feed the scraps to Karl Rove and Bill O’Reilly. And those who hate us can take solace in the fact that they aren’t subsidizing Bill’s bombast; we payers of the BBC license fee don’t enjoy that peace of mind.
Fox News is, after all, a private channel and our presenters are quite open about where they stand on particular stories. That’s our appeal. People watch us because they know what they are getting. The Beeb’s institutionalized leftism would be easier to tolerate if the corporation was a little more honest about it.
