Newshounds' Billy Liar Strikes Again!


Corcoran caught again, and he's capitalizing on the deaths of US troops to smear Fox. With J$P Video!

You'd think that at least on Veterans Day, the Fox haters would show enough respect to our fighting men not to exploit their deaths to feed their diseased obsession with Fox News. But such fine points of decency are lost on the newshounds (another fine product of the Outfoxed syndicate).

It's one thing for them to parade their egregious ignorance as some sort of enlightened analysis. For example, newsmutt Melanie concocted a scathing commentary about Neil Cavuto. Why? Because, she insisted, he was broadcasting from Las Vegas:
Ben Bernanke's on Capitol Hill, Neil Cavuto's in Las Vegas
...where was Neil Cavuto, the anchor of Fox's "premiere business news" program? In Las Vegas -- covering O.J.!... On Fox, "premiere business news" anchors travel to Las Vegas to follow up on "business news".

Melanie repeated the claim the next day, and, like the dutiful, gullible sheep that they are, the kennel-dwellers fell for it:
  • Caputo [sic] again proves to the world what a wanker he is. I mean, he's in Vegas to cover OJ or see some skin?
  • It makes perfect sense to me. Cavuto is more about "show" than "business".
  • As far out of touch Cavuto is I would have thought he was on the moon or something
  • Neil Cavuto should do a business report on Las Vegas brothels. I'm sure he will be rewarded with a "freebie," if you get my drift.

The truth? Neil Cavuto was not in Vegas. Not on Thursday, and not on Friday. He was on his Your World set in New York, like every other day. Fox had a reporter, Jonathan Hunt, in Las Vegas. Hunt is the guy with the Brit accent. Cavuto is the one with the big head. Get the difference, Mel?



There is a bit of irony here, or perhaps it should be called hypocrisy. It was Mel who, not that long ago, insisted that cancer-survivor and MS patient Cavuto should get his "ass" out of his New York studio. Ah, the compassion and professionalism of the anti-Fox terriers. But we digress.

As we said, it's one thing to be sloppy and lazy and expose yourself as an incompetent hack. It's something else entirely to use US troops as pawns in a desperate attempt to smear Fox with lies. And that's the department of the guest-blogging cur, Bill Corcoran. As we have documented over and over, Corcoran makes weekly lists of stories Fox "doesn't cover", and they are invariably phony and wrong. Hardly a surprise when you consider that he compiles the lists without even bothering to watch FNC's coverage!

The latest example comes just this morning:
Below are a handful of events pertaining to the war in Iraq which FOX News felt were not worthy of coverage or, at best, only a passing mention...The FOX News web site is carrying the story of six U.S. soldiers killed Saturday in Afghanistan, but it remains to be seen if FOX News television will mention their deaths...

It took only minutes to go to the tivo and find examples of "Fox News television" covering this story as soon as it broke Saturday morning and throughout the day [QuickTime video]:



It's obvious that FNC was on the story all day Saturday. Yet on Sunday Corcoran says it's a story Fox didn't cover and it "remains to be seen" if they even "mention" it. Billy, you're a fraud and a liar.

Thanks JD.
 
Mr. Corcoran's credibility (what's left of it) is in tatters.
 
I wonder if they actually believe their accusations? Or if they know they're being dishonest?

Bill Corcoran is a moron. Back in the days when I thought I had delusions of becoming a big time movie star there was a movie extra by the name of Bill Corcoran who would get up at Screen Actors Guild meetings and make a complete idiot of himself whining and complaining. I wonder if this Bill Corcoran is the same one.He certainly as stupid as the other one.

There are a lot of Bill Corcorans. This one claims to hail from Chicago, but given his track record you shouldn't believe anything he claims without three eyewitnesses bearing signed, notarized statements.

It's too bad that the facts are being wasted on informed people on this site instead of those who desperately need the truth over at NH. The daily lies and brainwashing they crave is surely eroding their already subpar intellects.

Well the facts aren't allowed at NH. I just got an email from someone who dared put a link to this article up at NH. First they deleted his comment, then he says they banned him. For the crime of pointing out the truth.

Happens everytime I link to here. Although, this time I had a #3 post and it took them over an hour to delete it. Early Sunday's appear to be a great time to post since they are stil sleeping off the Saturday drunk in MUTTLAND. Notice the pound master's never come over here and tell you you're wrong! I loved the post Mutt Ellen had today with this GEM.
Let's not let those three dodge democracy! Email Hannity at hannity@foxnews.com, Levin at marklevin.show@citcomm.com and Boyce at customerservice@abc.com and let them know that real "Great Americans" don't try to stifle dissent.
Changing a few simple words, which of course I did and posted and it stayed for awhile till the caught it, to read:

Sorry Johnny! I notice my mispelled words in my post above. I did post it over there and it was #3 post. And sat for awhile till the drunken mutts caught it. Those smartest libby mutts have tried to block me but have yet to succed. The I put "another GREAT SMACKDOWN BY JOHNNY DOLLAR" and put the link to here and they must have been real pissed because it sat for over 2 hours before they caught it. It would be nice if we could get some regulars just to nail their board. Non-stop posting about everything and anything like they do to TRUE AMERICAN BLOGS. The enemy always runs when faced with their own tactic's.

Sorry for the spelling of a mutt above. I have now been given my rabies vaccine so the spelling should improve.

Hey Johnny & Scott, my posts were also deleted over in muttland. It is fun to torment them.
 
I had to comment after they used Ted Kennedy's opinion on waterboarding. I asked "I wonder what Mary Jo Kopechni would say about the Sen. comments?"
