Skip to comments.Fox's Coverage of the Election - Vanity
Posted on 11/06/2012 5:15:36 PM PST by HawkHogan
Why do the talking heads on Fox sound so negative and dejected. O'Reilly sounded like he was ready to concede the election to Obama based on Hurricane Sandy. I don't understand the negativity.
Also, Juan Williams needs to go to MSNBC.
These guys don’t know how bad exit polls are.
To create drama and draw viewers.
Yeah, their coverage has all the cheer of a graveyard. It’s like they’re already in ‘obit’ mode for Romney’s campaign without coming out and saying it.
First of all, I can’t believe these numbers. Second, ref; eeg-O-rielly, if Romeny loses it falls square on the fat soldiers of sissy boy Christie.
I just don’t understand it. They really think undecideds broke for Obama by a large percentage.
Don’t fret. Let Chris Matthews suffer from premature elation.
It does not appear to be good news for Mitt I am sad to say. Chris Christie should be ashamed for selling out the U.S. for freebies for N.J.
Seriously!!!! Juan keeps talking about ‘he feels more like I feel”...who cares about that? How about the shitty economy? How about 4 dead US embassy employees in Libya? Where are these points that blow up Obama’s ‘likeability’??
O’Reilly just said that 8% of independents in NH are going Obama. Is this correct? How accurate can that be?
They sound negative cause they know that Romney lost:( as I said earlier I got a call from a real insider at R headquarters and they say everyone there is down cause Romney lost Ohio and don’t really see a viable path anymore.
‘m praying that is wrong but it’s the truth Pres O:(
Watch Fox Business News with Neil Cavuto. It beats the regular Fox network by far. Neil has been dismissing the exit polls pretty much and is even handed.
Easy, O’Reilly is a blowhard who lives inside his east coast bubble. He has no idea that most of the nation could give a damn about hurricane Sandy. In fact, most people wish that the east coast would just drop off and sink into the ocean. But, whatever, once again the blowhard will be proven wrong. What a moron.
Because they know there are millions of lazy, stupid people who will vote for Obama to ensure they get their "freebies".
They don’t know anything yet. So far it looks like Obama has won where we expected him to win and Romney has won where we expected him to win.
BOR’s bottom lip seemed to be quivering
None the less, I tend to agree with his view of what Americans have become: They want “things” (from others than themselves, sadly) and brown and feminine.
He said the white majority is history. Statistically, that will certainly be true in a few years.
People BOR and my age recall what America was - and that explains our quivering bottom lips.
What insider is that??
I guess that watching this stuff for awhile today and then watch an episode of The Walking Dead, well, not so bad.
Juan Williams to MSNBC? Do they even hire blacks?
Bill O’Reilly is an AZZHOLE. All he cares about is getting another interview with the Marxist.
Too much useless yapping going on now.
We in TN did our part. VA looking promising.
What insider is that??
I’m watching the Blaze on 212 DISH, here at freerepublic.com Drudge report.
ROMNEY WINS: AL, GA, IN, KY, MS, OK, SC, TN, WV...
OBAMA WINS: CT, DC, DE, IL, MA, ME, MD, RI, VT...
FROM DRUDGE http://www.drudgereport.com/
Then why did Romney mention that he did not prepare a concession speech?
the numbers show what the numbers show. They can only report what they show. We can have our feelings but the numbers are what they are and just because every objective measure has shown Obama to be a complete and abject failure, it doesn’t mean he won’t be able to pull this out. At some point, we need to accept it, whatever it is.
Less than 1% in with Romney up in Michigan.
it doesn’t matter does it. I don’t make things up talk in conjecture or even post often because of my job. I spoke to a friend and posted what i’v heard. Take it how you want, but watch Ohio go blue...It sucks and it’s the damn stupid auto bullcrap.
The Blaze has great coverage, and is far more upbeat.
Agree. So early, and they're going negative on R&R. Not encouraging ... but I'm optimistic and if R&R win FOX needs to apologize profusely to the Republican voters watching.
How can they NOT know? They have been covering elections for how long?
I am just so blown away that a president who essentially said in his first month in office that if he didn’t fix the economy in 3 years, it was going to be a one-term proposition... Economy still in the tank. Unemployment still up (both official numbers and the REAL numbers).
A president who has thrown the war on terror out the door - making buddy-buddy with AlQaeda and their affiliates the Muslim Brotherhood. Directly supporting those who we were at war with just a few years ago...
The Marxists that Senator McCarthy tried to flush out and was alienated for pursuing have won.
I think those Obama wins were pretty much givens, but was hoping MD would flip.
“What insider is that??”
He signed up before the 2002 election (about a week).
His insider is likely his own mind.
Bloviating Bill is just ticked off at the Romney campaign for not coming on his show.....because the world revolves around this egomaniac. I agree that the coverage is dismal and totally down beat. We are switching to local channels for coverage.
News legs including FOXNews pay for the exit polls, so the talking heads are required to pimp them as a condition of employment, even if they know the exits are wrong.
I am not buying the Sandy/Christie issue. I just don’t see voters making up or changing their mind on last weeks Hurricane or Christie’s actions.
Seriously- I’m sick of it!
They aren’t keeping me! I put it on and they were talking like o was going to win and I just changed it to DIY, something kind of mindless to take the stress off.
Everything called for Obama so far was expected.
BOR is just doing a CYA thing
LOL! Did DU lock you out? Go spread your concern troll doom and gloom elsewhere.
Rove seems very upbeat.
I will always say that I believe the cheating by the democrats in this election was on a massive scale. But it is in places like FL, PA and OH that it made the most difference.
What does my join date have to do with anything? If you go read my posts, you’ll notice I’m a young conservative from PA.
I asked a legitimate question why Fox News is being so gloomy. Someone else created a thread about it as well. Sorry, if I have election night nerves.
“OReilly is a blowhard who lives inside his east coast bubble.”
Absolutely true. However, on the Christie issue he’s dead on.
I’m puzzled how the race could already be called for the Republican Governor’s race in Virginia, yet there is a chance that Obama will win that state? Confused voters?
BORe needs to shut his cake hole.
From what we’ve seen, especially from the Indies and R turnout, I still believe Mitt is going to win.
Karl Rove just said Romney is doing well in Ohio, Virginia & Florida
Let not your heart be troubled. On Fox, Karl Rove is painting a very good picture for a Republican win in Ohio, Florida and Virginia. I realize Karl was not very popular hereabouts a few months ago but he’s an astute observer of politics and an excellent numbers cruncher.
