Skip to comments."Fox News Against The Right!" (Posted on Ann Coulter's Website)

OK, why did Fox News have to cover that volcano erupting? As I said, conservatives can't count on Fox to keep the immigration debate boiling. Fox isn't the conservative cable channel. It's the Bush cable channel. Try to find the immigration bill controversy on the Fox home page. (It's there, but you have to look way down. Even then it's spun deceptively in a pro-Bush way: "As plan moves forward in the Senate will House sink it?" As if it's already a done deal in the Senate and only those Pelosi Dems stand in the way. ... )

Thanks. Will read the link.
Good article on Anne’s web site today about this topic.
Good to see liberals and conservatives working together for a change, even if it is on goofy conspiracy theories.
“Ann Coulter on Hannity and Colmes last night wondered aloud whether the White House contacted Roger Ailes at Fox News and asked him to tamp down coverage of the illegal immigrant amnesty bill.”
Because it’s so bad open discussion will submarine it.
So far the Liberal MSM is checkmated with the fear of being called racist on one side, and the excitement of defining the conservative “other” as racist on the the other side.
No mention how the bill will disproportionately harm the lifestyles of Hispanic and other minority Americans.
I’ve had a real sense that we are being marginalized. Chertoff’s statements about us wanting capital punishment for immigrants were unbelievable and irresponsible. I wouldn’t put it past FOX to be toeing the line. After all, they are giving Geraldo a huge amount of airtime on this issue and Shep Smith has been encouraged to rant as well. I would also say that even though who are center-right on FNC are pushing this bill.
Amplification on prior post.
Fred Barnes on Special Report does the pro amnesty dance everynight.
All you have to do is watch Special Report and Fox News Sunday to see a solid wall of pundits (Barnes, Kristol, Kondrake, Williams, Liasson, etc.) in favor of amnesty and open borders and they are not even civil about it.
These clowns who live in gated communities in million dollar homes don’t ever hesitate in calling any of you who oppose ILLEGAL aliens as “yahoos”, “bigots”, “nativists” and every other race-based epithet they can think of.
What is sad is that after their daily tirades against those of us who strangely think the law should be followed, Brit Hume will come out and say “Fox News, Fair and Balanced!”
If they pass this bill and Bush signs it I willnever vote Republican again, ever, and I will never send any money to these crooks.
I’ve switch to CNN for news. CNN was always better on breaking news and Lou Dobbs is great on issues important to me. Last Sunday CNN was asking hard questions on immigration (to both D’s and R’s) I never hear Fox ask. Ann is right Fox about Fox, they are neocon water boys.
He’s a Weekly Standard yahoo.
All supporting wage depression for invitations to the right parties, and class solidarity...though they can never really belong.
We already have laws. We should enforce these laws. Deport illegal aliens, build a fence and otherwise secure the border, fine those who set up "sanctuary cities" that aid and abet and fine employers, cut out special perks for these criminals, etc. And the problem will fade.
What is this apparently frenzied obsession with illegal aliens by Bush & the Senators that borders on insanity or treason?
I watched Ann Coulter on Hannity and Clown and did see Hannity change the subject when Ann brought up FoxSnooze lack of amnesty coverage. She probably won't be asked on again until the amnesty bill passes.
I stopped watching Special Report when Barnes and Kondracke started that spewing that stuff the last time. When was it, two years ago in February? I stopped watching in March of 2005.
Fox has been crap from day 1. I don’t understand why anyone takes it any more seriously than CNN.
CNN stopped covering news objectively many years ago. They now carry the water for George Soros and MoveOn.org. Yes, they have Lou Dobbs, but that's it.
FoxSnooze sucks, but CNN reeks like decomposing skunk carcasses.
Has anyone seen the O’Reilly online newsletter? Main piece is about Bush & Bair and the usual.
NOTHING ABOUT THE SENATE BILL, OR A CALL FOR UNIFICATION TO STOP IT...OR DISCUSS IT FOR THAT MATTER.....
We don’t watch Fox all that much anymore at our house.
