Posted on 11/06/2012 10:46:12 PM PST by dagogo redux
I don't usually bother with TV at all, but my wife seems to want to get her news from Fox for reasons beyond me. We have a home theater system, and invited our neighbors over tonight to watch the election returns on Fox with us.
We were appalled by the process through which the Fox morons cheerfully dismissed state after state before the facts were even in, a pattern epitomized when some babe strutted in smarmy fashion down to their "Decision Room" to humor Carl Rove's contention that Ohio had been called far too prematurely for Obama.
It was an amazingly amateurish, overly glitzy production throughout, and one where every single Fox News person seemed more than glad, titillated in fact, that Obama had won. I found it disgusting beyond words.
I left Fox long ago, but I think my wife finally saw the light tonight. We're done with the. May they rot in whatever hell they go to.
I didn’t even watch.
I’m through with Fox except Catherine Herridge, Benghazi reporter.
Only if CNS or American Spectator starts at cable news network for conservatives.
Fox is the most fair and balanced non-partisan news network on cable.
Where are you going to go to MSNBC?
Careful... your treading on thin ground here... I put up a similar post and it got yanked...
Yes, I’m pretty much feeling the same way. I don’t need them. There are plenty of places to get my news on the Internet.
I’ve been done with Fox, the GOP and all but one conservative talking head since summer.
Maybe Glenn Beck’s channel will be a good alternative. I’m done with Fox as well.
agree....all in the same pile of pooh....
I was disappointed that the usual gain wasn’t there. I like Neil Cavuto and Lou Dobbs, but prefer the others. I like the CEOs they had who blasted all the problems witht he past 4 years and the essential stupidity of the sheeple.
You can't imagine how much crap I got from a lot of folks here on FR over the last decade when I pointed out that Fox News is an amateurish, third-rate news organization. I haven't watched it in years.
Agreed. It was sickening.
Whats FOX to do with a culture that buys and sells votes?
The DNC outbid us.
We need to outbid them and at the same tome reste the US faster.
$500,000 and one acre of land in manhattan.
Some people think Murdoch is trying to appease those in power so they will not go after him for that debacle in Britain. Perhaps he is going easy on the Democrats for that reason.
I quit watching FOX and all TV over 4 years ago.
Absolutely through with Fox! They were shameful. Especially Megyn Kelly. She was positively giddy. Fox News has killed the goose that laid the golden egg. They started out fair and balanced and it appealed to people. They ran away with the ratings but now its went to their heads and they are as bad as the rest. No more cable news for me. I’ll get my news from my local news and conservative talk radio.
Me too. They remind me of Lucy holding the ball out for Charlie Brown and then pulling it away at the last minute. Remember haw they were in the tank for Romney during the primaries? Now they completely abandoned him even a couple of weeks go.
Those talking heads on FNC, they are making 6-, 7-, 8-figure salaries while the rest of us are jobless or loosing their life savings. Fox, you are no different than CNN.
Real Conservatives do not watch Fox News.
When their hosts and analysts started supporting McCain-Kennedy Illegal Alien Amnesty turned me off years ago. When I decided to watch again, they supported Obama on the Eligibility issue by attacking the Birthers. Goodbye FonyCon News Channel
I am through with TV FOX and the rest of the talking heads. Lou Dobbs is tolerable and Cavuto is smart and good, but the rest are window dressing and waay too unaffected in general. Scary times.
FOX was all in Left until they got there man Romney, and moved to the middle only to move back Left as they move FORWARD! with them.
Education, from start to finish, guarantees another generation of more socialist/Marxists who have increasingly less use for religious liberty.
Maybe. But Glenn Becks channel would be too Alex Jonesy for me.
Obama has 4 years of executive orders to sign.
Nowhere was Hannity or Greta during tonight’s coverage. BOR began the Debbie Downer chrous. Also remember a major investor in FNC is Saudi. On it’s best day, a person should accept anything reported by Fox with skepticism.
FOX swings left.
Quit watching years ago.
I watched the Blaze for the most part. They still need more programming but I thought their election coverage was fairly good. They didn’t call states as quickly as the other channels but I was ok with that. They also weren’t afraid to bring religion into the conversation, which I liked. I’m no Mormon but I do think God is the only answer, in the long run.
Fox does need to dump Rove and Dick Morris, and O’Reilly too while they’re at it, and Hannity.
Hell, never mind, keep them all, I won’t watch anyway. I have this site, the Blaze, Breitbart, Drudge and a few others I can still count on.
I switched away from Fox to The Blaze, and it was so much better. No Bob Beckel in sight, just honest discussion in an intellectual manner.
About all I watch anymore is “The Five” and “Redeye”.
The rest is stoopit like BOR(though I do try to catch the sage), Mascara Boy and a few others.
I like the morning program as I prepare for the day but for the most part Fox is boring.
Besides, Freepers is duh best at getting information.
They suck, their prognosticators were all wrong, and their election night coverage pales before cnn’s. John king and his magic board are tremendous and king is very fair. P’us, early tonight Snakehead said “OL Romney got to win evry game heah and brack Obama has only to show up.” Or something like that. I thought that was so annoying, but snake head was right! No need for a trashcan on his head.
One of the largest shareholders of Fox News’ parent company is a Saudi sheik. You don’t think he bought that large stake in the company because he thinks Sean Hannity is “a great American” and Shep Smith is heterosexual, do you?
She should watch her back she may just end up dying of natural causes especially if she unearths more lies about Obama he is going to go even more thug on everyone who tries to shine a light on what he did.
I gave ‘em up a while back. It’s just another channel to me now.
Fox Business. Regular FoxNews is crap.
You have to do more than just not watch. You have to boycott their advertisers. That’s what pays those huge paychecks. Ratings hurt. But boycotts hurt more.
Megan Kelly is such a harridan
much older yet much lovelier Martha McCallum had far more grace thru the debacle
People pay money for FOX?
Not me and can’t see why anyone would.
FOXsters are Obama voters.
I am not usually the disallusion type, but what is going to happen now, and how soon? It’s done, now a fact that we are all going to be on the public dole and half are already.
I was taken aback that Megyn Kelly seemed extremely perky announcing Obama’s victory.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting she was actually happy abut the outcome, but it was like she was intentionally trying to appear bright, upbeat and chipper.
I found it extremely odd and offensive.
And WHAT was going on with the dismissal of the states so readily, as you mentioned??? What???
And calling Ohio before the votes were counted. thoroughly disgusting.
I have no idea why people turn on that garish circus sideshow called Fox. It drives me batty.
Yes, and all the rest too. I cut the cable.
I think this was the most disappointing coverage by Fox I have ever seen. It was irritating that they were projecting states way too early. And yes, several posts mentioned Megyn Kelly being giddy....I guess I have had blinders on about her. I knew Shep and BOR were lost causes. I used to watch Glenn Beck when he was on Fox, but he started to get really over the top scary.
I am okay with some of the morning shows....well it is ambient noise anyway.
I won’t miss watching...guess I will get my news from FR, Breibart, etc
I’m through with Fox and every other media outlet. Not going to pay attention to anything any more. This is not the country I was born into and it will never be the same in my remaining lifetime. Screw it. Going to try to enjoy my remaining few years. Que sera sera.
“Where are you going to go to MSNBC?”
Why do people depend on TV for their news in the first place? I never got that.
There are much better sources for more thorough and reliable news and analysis than the idiot box.
Megyn Kelly is in her 40’s. I don’t know how old Martha McCallum is. Most of the barely dressed bimbo bottle blondes on Fox are approaching 40 or past it.
I don’t see why this is any different from other Fox (or any network) coverage.
Folks, we didn’t lose because of Fox. They didn’t have to change one state they called.
We can’t get upset because we can’t raise enough numbers of voters to vote in the person we support.
What is Fox supposed to do, wait all night and declare states the next morning?
Fox catered to us considerably in the run up to this election. It was the only place we could listen to without hearing the Left non-stop.
Who are you going to listen to now? I like Glenn Beck, but seriously he’s good for some things, but he’s not a full service news network.
We can’t simply check out. Get a grip folks.
The RNC is where our focus should be. They rig the process and only give us people they know aren’t Conservative.
Honestly, I think it’s time to leave the party. They left us a long time ago. Let’s see how the RNC does with ten followers on twitter, and no registered voters.
Yep, we saw that, too. I was thinking “WTH?” Admittedly, I had a bit of hope with what Rove was saying about Ohio but it turned out to be crap. What slayed me was all the analysis of what was wrong about Romney afterwards. All the faults people saw in the beginning were now excuses why he didn’t win.
Fox and Co. lost a load of credibility tonight.
Obama had the House and Senate for the first 2 years of his administration and NOTHING got done. Things got worse.
The economy took the downturn in 2006 when Pelosi and Reid gained control of both Houses.
The GOP failed to get this message out. They only started to use this message after Ryan was picked as the VP. Before that, they went years without responding to these false attacks.
And, if the economy really is not Bush's fault, why did Bush say nothing or try to correct the so-called false statements, is what many independenents and moderates asked.
Major communication problem on our side.
Paul Ryan was the answer, but it came too late.
There are much better sources for more thorough and reliable news and analysis than the idiot box.
I agree with that. The only time I watch TV for news is during special live events such as the approach of a hurricane or election night.
The reason why I mentioned MSNBC or any other cable TV network was because the title of the thread is: Anyone Else Through With Fox?
Based on the title and the text I assume the poster was referring to TV news.
