Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart and co. pointed out brilliantly that Fox News’ logic about “extremist” funding to the Park51 project can be equally applied to …. Fox News.

    Alex, is that where you get most of your material? Comedy central. How about SNL. They have a news segment. No wonder your opinions are like a joke, but not funny. I’ll bet you got your degree out of a crackerjack box and the only bar you passed was Clancey’s on 3rd street.

  2. The Daily Show and SNL know they are parody and so do the people who watch them.

    The problem with FNC is that people take it seriously

    “Alex, is that where you get most of your material?”

    It’s amazing how ill informed people are. I thought everyone knew the second largest stockholder in Newscorp was a muslim from Saudia Arabia. They need to read more widely.

    How long before Fox news drops this like hot potato. Any guesses?

    I watched the show this morning. I’m grateful that someone out there is actually investigating their shenanigans. If it takes a comedy show, then so be it.

    The audacity of Fox is amazing. It’d bad enough they’re showing various innuendo on cards and blackboards, but this takes it to another level. Incredible. What will a Fox true believer think?

    “The problem with FNC is that people take it seriously”

    Please show me one verifiable lie told on FNC. Please note that the comment referred to Fox News Channel, not simply Fox. Please back your claim up with video footage or some other independent proof that the story stated facts which were materially incorrect.

    I guess smears, innuendo, and partisan spin are fine with Juneau, just so long as there are no outright lies.
