THIS is how you deal with Faux News reporters!

Post by Elfdart »

Crooks And Liars

One of the tossers from Fixed Noise went trolling for comments among an anti-war demonstration. When several protesters made it clear they wanted nothing to do with Faux News, he turned up the flamebait. Asking one of the demonstrators what his message was, the marcher said "Stop the torture; stop the war", to which this little wanker of "journalist" asked: "Do you not believe in freedom?"

To which the crowd started chanting:

FUCK FOX NEWS!

The best part was the fucktard reporter and the studio anchor clutching the pearls with shock and disbelief. :lol:


I guess they never heard of this guy. :wanker:
"One way we recognize a mass hysteria movement is that everyone who doesn’t believe is accused of being in on the plot. This has been going on virtually unrestrained in both political and media circles in recent weeks."

I love how the apparent definition of "freedom of speech" to the nitwit reporter is "you have to talk to me because I have a microphone."

The moment I saw "Leftist" seriously used on the pop-up tagline, I knew that the video would be a classic. :)

I'm honestly not sure if the "anchor" and "reporter" shown are simply playing up the "Demo-commies are divided and insane" angle for their viewers, or if they're actually delusional enough to think that FOX News is a legitimate conduit of free expression. Both prospects are similarly grim.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: freedom of expression ends at fraud. FOXNews, by claiming to be "fair and balanced" (or for that matter, using the word "news" rather than "opinions" in their self-description) is defrauding the public.

They clearly did not expect to see the vitriol towards Pravda, er…FOX News from the “far left” protesters (why are all Democrats “far left” in FNC’s eyes? Do they think that moderates stay home or just don’t exist?),

That's not true. I'm sure they would have regarded Benito Mussolini as a moderate.

Not a chance, he made the trains run on time. Consolidating them under the control of the government instead of allowing the free market to regulate them is clearly socialism.

Actually, he just declared that they arrived on time. Almost no actual work to improve the rail network was done during the fascist dictatorship, the notion is just a enduringly successful piece of propaganda.

No they wouldn't.
Mussolini is a liberal, not a moderate.
Or so Jonah Goldberg says in his book Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning.

Oh this was fucking classic.

The irony that this was more or less the exact tactic Fox and other Right Wing nutjobs have been using for the last 8 years or so, just drown out counter arguments by screaming loudly in unison, makes it all the sweater. The look of shock on these peoples face as they are utterly unable to DOMINATE an interview or a conversation the way they usually do is just AWESOME.

They aired alot of 'Generic Protestor Shots', said the protestors 'Got a little rough' and joked about the "Reporter" being in danger. A bunch of cliche' 'Hey, that's a liberal ticket, you stupid liberals, you must all think alike, because conservatives think alike.'. And ended with a surprisingly honest statement: They will continue to send him back to 'cause trouble'.

I am willing to bet that this little segement didn't make it on the nightly news. Not keeping with the fine tradition of putting the family first like a good Republican and keeping those naughty liberals in their place! Yeah, this is just great and stuff. Better enjoy every minute of it, I don't think it's going to be happening again. It's the Haily Boop comet of the television news!
