Skip to comments.On MSNBC, a Gun Debate That Fox Doesn’t Seem to Worry About (decided to cover West, Texas instead)
Posted on 04/18/2013 6:47:01 PM PDT by markomalley
President Obama hadnt finished his first sentence on Wednesday when the Fox News Channel cut away from his Rose Garden remarks about the Senates defeat of a measure that would have expanded background checks for gun buyers.
On Thursday, Mr. Scarborough, a registered Republican who promotes his conservative credentials as well as an independent streak, assailed the lawmakers who voted against the background check legislation. Citing the failed Senate vote as evidence, Mr. Scarborough said, This party is moving toward extinction.
That would come as news to Fox fans, who have heard comparatively little about the subject. While most of Joe was dedicated to guns on Thursday, Foxs morning show, Fox & Friends, didnt mention the word once. It focused instead on news about a Texas fertilizer plant explosion.

Brian Stelter seems to be just as much a petulant child as Obama.
Seriously what could be more important then our pout, whining, self important LOSER and his efforts to disenfranchise the American People, certainly not death, injury and destruction on a grand scale.
...is a fraud.
I loved that Fox cut away. Saved me from having to flip off channel Obama was on.
When MSNBC starts to cover the abortionist trial please wake me up...otherwise they have NOTHING to stand on.
The media trying to distract from their own scumbaggery by throwing a fit about FOX covering a breaking story.
When I want to read real news, I will read the National Enquirer.
It was great - Greg Gutfeld said something like “oh, that’s what it’s going to be”, and then cut away.
“Fox & Friends” had 3 times as many viewers as “Morning Joe”
on Wednesday. It’s probably that way every day.
The “Slimes” concern troll Brian Stelter needs to buck up. His whining is disgusting.
Nothing exists for these Northeast Elitists west of Pennsylvania.
Sorry, it just is.
Card carrying doesn't impress me much. Crossovers gave us McCain and others. Even Michael Bloomberg is probably registered as a Republican.
And one of the guys who funded the Gore recount was a "registered Republican" who boasted that no candidate in the history of time itself matched his views more than Al Gore. He even joined up at FR to discuss the recount when his name kept showing up here because of news coverage.
The NYT thinks that an explosion in Texas is foreign news.
The Senate has a Majority of Democrats but its the Republican's fault it didn't pass?
Is he serious?
It’s hard to believe that even the scum sucking NYT would write a piece like this.
I automatically turn off the TV any time Obama comes on anyway as do most conservatives, and breaking news compared to listening to this poofter whine is definitelt the way to go.
Jackie Gleason summarized their attitudes: “Spending the night anywhere but in NYC is camping.”
Let them freeze, starving, in the dark. And hey, thanks pRessident Failure for bringin’ us all together you ......
Don’t recall any nashing of teeth when these low lives refused to cover Bushes speeches. Two faced liars is all they are
That is the gutsiest thing I have seen Fox do ever! I actually applauded, suspended between the mute button and the change channel button, when it became immediately evident that he was not going to address the Senate event, but turned on his typical verbal diarrhea about "Gabby Giffords," a total irrelevancy and tedious repetitive exploitation on a sad vegetable, irrelevant to the actual ongoing events.
My only disappointment was that it happened during the telecast of The Five, and they succumbed to the PC stupidity of an immediate apology. Sort of took the edge off the gutsy move. What was the damage done to Hussein? Every other Hussein Propaganda network was showing the bullchit no-information speech.
I saw that live...And I had the same reaction...
But I look at it this way...We ALL need to listen to what Obama says...It is a clear signla to the intent of his desires and we need to be aware of them, no matter how irritating it is to watch...
AP, on their website has the clip of his comments beginning with the father (useful idiot) of one one of the kids who was murdered at Sandy Hook...Then he was proudly introduced by that guy, thus the rant begins from the petulent child in chief...
I highly recommend folks here go and bear through that speech...You need to hear it from the horses mouth what his views are, and what he has plans to do in the upcoming weeks...
This is not over by a long shot...
