  • No, Fox News. Ted Cruz Is Not Barack Obama. Not Even Close. (Barf alert)

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)If Fox News tries to sell Ted Cruz as the conservative Barack Obama, are they damning him or helping him? There are so many laugh-out-loud moments in this clip it's hard to know where to begin. Dorothy Rabinowitz hails Cruz as a magnificent orator, hard-liner on foreign policy, and one who can inspire the conservative base to action. But overall, this is an on-air attempt to damn Cruz with faint praise, just as they did in an editorial earlier this week. It's clear both from the WSJ editorial and Peggy Noonan's pile-on the next day that Cruz is hardly their...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was on “The Kelly File” tonight to react to the news that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will seek the Republican nominee for president in 2016. Megyn Kelly asked Paul about some of his supporters who were in the audience at Cruz’s announcement, sporting “Stand With Rand” shirts. “We were glad to see them there and organized and excited about the possibility of me running,” he said. Paul said that he didn’t hear much that he disagreed with during Cruz’s speech today. “We kind of come from the same wing of the party,” he said. “If you...

Particularly certain hosts. But I have to wonder: if Ronald Reagan was running in 1976 starting in ’75 against Gerald Ford, how most of the people at Fox would treat him.

    National Journal ^ | March 17, 2015 | Emma Roller
    One America News, which launched patriotically on July 4, 2013, is something of an anomaly in the cable news universe. First of all, it's based in San Diego, California. The channel's news coverage is intended to be straight down the middle, even though its talk shows are pretty staunchly conservative. The network does not cover sports or pop culture news. Like Lahren, many of its news anchors and reporters are young. And for now, it airs no commercials. The network may want to emulate Fox's success, but it's taking a very different path to get there. Robert and Charles Herring,...

Try that on for size, because Democratic strategist and longtime Clinton loyalist James Carville has achieved what seems like it should be the impossible. Media Matters, a lefty watchdog group, an arm of the Democratic Party and perpetual hater of Fox News, proudly announced the news this week in a statement. Carville will be a “reoccurring guest contributor,” according to the lefty site HuffPost.

    Americans are hungry for the truth. Six years of steady misinformation, cover-ups, scandals, lawless actions, outright lies—people need a dose of truth You grab the TV controller and settle in for a quick look at the “news”. You gravitate to the national news presentation that most fits your political leanings. Since a large majority of America is conservative, most settle on FOX. That is unless you feel like you need a break from reality and decide to have a few chuckles. Then you move on to MSNBC—but hurry before it fully implodes.

    On his MSNBC show tonight, trying to explain away a poll showing Fox News to—once again—be the most trusted national news network, Hayes argued that it was unfair since Fox was the only conservative outlet, pitted against MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS. Hayes analogized the poll to one in which Mike Huckabee was placed against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry and Al Gore. Huckabee would win, said Hayes, but only because people were split among the others. Hello? The others are all DEMOCRATS. Just like all the non-Fox outlets you mentioned lean left.

    Two weeks ago former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a lot of heat from the media when he said President Obama doesn't love America during a fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It turns out, many Americans agree with Guiliani's assessment. According to a new Fox News poll, the vast majority of Americans believe the United States is the greatest country in the world, but a smaller majority believe President Obama feels the same way. The new poll also finds the numbers saying Obama is patriotic, honest or a strong leader have all declined in the past few years. More...

    While jousting with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly a few years ago, Jon Stewart proclaimed him “the Mayor of “Bull---- Mountain.’’ But that image is imprecise. Fox News, the cable network beloved of conservatives, is less a mountain than a fortress, or maybe a tank. Firmly in the driver’s seat is O’Reilly, who worked at a Boston TV station and attended Boston University and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. The network’s operational mode is the furthest thing from serene mountaintop remoteness: Day in and day out, Fox girds for ideological battle with what it sees as the...

    MSNBC registered its lowest full-day rating in nearly a decade on Tuesday, a devastatingly low benchmark that shows just how severe the network's decline has become. The liberal cable news network drew an average of 55,000 viewers in the all-important 25-to-54 year-old demo on Tuesday, its lowest full-day rating since July 2005, according to Nielsen ratings provided by an industry source. CNN had nearly three times as many viewers in the demo; Fox News nearly five times as many. That low reflects a more general decline in recent years.

    For most of history, people suffered in miserable poverty. Then, in a few hundred years, some new ideas made life hugely better for billions of us -- things like running water, the printing press, the steam engine, electricity, the Internet. We want people to keep coming up with new and better ideas. But there's a problem: Why would you bother to spend years inventing something if other people can just steal your idea? Who will devote years and millions of dollars to making a big movie? Or a dozen years and billions of dollars to bringing a new drug to...

    Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" had another jaw-dropping weekend, reaching an impressive $200 million at the domestic box office. Despite the film's colossal success, liberals like former DNC chairman Howard Dean and director Michael Moore just won't let "American Sniper" go. Over the weekend, Moore invoked Jesus in a slew of incendiary tweets aimed at dishonoring American soldiers and the Iraq war. One tweet stated "Tomorrow's Sunday School (1 What Would Jesus Do? Oh, I know what he'd do --hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back!" He followed that tweet with: Sunday School: (2) But What...

    Fox News is not exactly known as an ally of the Obama administration, especially when it comes to disputes between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, or disputes between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Yet two prominent Fox News hosts, Chris Wallace and Shepherd Smith, harshly criticized Boehner and Netanyahu on Friday for secretly arranging a Netanyahu speech to Congress that is transparently aimed at undermining President Obama, and set up without the White House's knowledge. The White House, State Department, and many foreign policy observers, including prominent former US ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk, expressed outrage over...

    Fox News on Friday aired a rare criticism of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, over his decision to accept an invitation from House speaker John Boehner to address Congress. Fox News hosts Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith criticized the move, saying it would cause backlash in Israel and damage the relationship between the United States and Israel. “I happened to be the White House on Wednesday when Boehner announced he invited and Netanyahu accepted this, and a top White House official was flabbergasted. Said, ‘We got no advance warning. We found out about it,’ them in the White House, ‘when Boehner...

    FNC’S CHRIS WALLACE: NETANYAHU “WICKED”, “MALICIOUS” FOR “SNEAKING UP” ON OBAMA’S BACK By Aaron Goldstein on 1.25.15 In an appearance with Shepherd Smith on Friday, his FNC colleague Chris Wallace blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his impending speech to Congress in early March: To give you an idea of how malicious this is, I’ll tell you that US Secretary of State John Kerry met with the Israeli Ambassador to the United States for two hours on Wednesday and Ron Dermer did not announce the fact that Netanyahu was coming to Washington, DC. This is not in order to...
