NEWS HOUNDS SUPPORTS CORRUPT ACORN!!! WANTS INVESTIGATIONS TO CEASE!!!
 
Help Stop Fox News' Campaign Against ACORN
Reported by Ellen - Wed 7:22 PM
 
Well, maybe not exactly. But if they had any common sense at all, they would wait until the investigations are complete and let the chips fall where they may.
 
But their hate is so deep they have a burning need to keep attacking and smearing Fox.

Re: "Ambusher defended?!": I could be wrong, but it seemed that Tommy Christopher was both defending Griff and calling him a hypocrite for giving the same type of response as Grayson. That troll commenter M didn't make me feel any better when he attacked Griff.

These clowns actually think they have some influence.
 
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! Hilarious!!!!!
What a bunch of fools.
 
And the White House can safely rely on information from this very web site in order to provide chapter and verse of exposed Fox News lies.  
How Fox News must hate and fear the Newshounds, just the way vampires shrink from sunlight.

B - you must admit that the writer of that little tale of crap has the perfect name. It's extremely self-descriptive.
 
That's all the President needs, to be associated with a web site that calls for specific people to die, be sexually assaulted, and be murdered; and enjoys referring to minorities with a variety of bigoted slurs.

I enjoyed the blog entry by Bill George (Olbermann Overkill), I certainly agree with much of what he wrote, but he's another one who says that he "NEVER" watches Fox News, then goes on to tell us all about Fox News.

It looks like Bill George used numbers from May 09'.
 
Keith will show up to tell mister George that Countdown is #1 with Burger Flippers & Pizza delivery drivers. So take that Mr. George, HA!

Fox News Ambushes Their Latest Target: Rep. Alan Grayson
Reported by Ellen - October 29, 2009 - 11 comments  
 
I'm sure it was just an oversight that Ellen, the Chief Liar at the Hateful Hideous House of Hounds, forgot to mention that Griff was in the public hallways and that a police officer even told Grayson that he was allowed to be there.
 
Nope, not an oversight. An outright distortion of the truth.
 
What else would you expect from the group of liars.

I guess they can't help themselves. The bigger Fox gets the worse the lies and distorions get. The News Hounds are becoming desparate and in teh end they will lose.
 
Fox will be around longer than any of them. Why they continue to wallow in scum is beyond me.

I'm glad to see that Bret Baeir seems to be keeping more of Beck's audience.
 
I like him and really like the end of the show with the panel, especially Charles Krauthammer.

The sneaky folks changed the url. I am off to find where it went and fix the entry.
 
update: The article seems to have disappeared from Bill George's site. Which is odd, since he wrote it! But I've updated the link to another site where it was cross-posted. Better read it while you can. Who knows when that link will be removed?!

So I see youtube killed the video that made me stop watching KO. I knew he was lying because I was watching MG live on Fox and knew KO was lying. Only after watching that video did I do alittle reading and saw that Fox was much better and KO lied allot.
 
It was the video from this link uped by J$.

What are those people talking about Griff Jenkins and "baby mama"? As far as I know, 'baby mama' was a chyron that showed up on screen, the employee who did it was fired (and subsequently hired by nbc), and an apology was made. I never heard any story about it being connected with Griff Jenkins.

Tommy Christopher had a link to the Dem Convention last year when he asked Jenkins if he thought baby mama was fair and balanced.
 
As best I can tell Jenkins said he couldn't be interviewed while working.
 
I think a few people thought he was equating Jenkins re himself to Grayson re Jenkins. I don't think that is what he meant but I'm not completely certain so I asked him just a few minutes ago.
 
I was confused too.

Well I just posted there because he has a flat-out falsehood in his piece. He's claiming he confronted Jenkins over "statements he (Jenkins) had made". Jenkins made no such statement. The whole 'baby mama' thing was a chyron on the freaking screen. Period. So his piece has a serious inaccuracy in it.

Well it gives me another chance to ignore Patrick, which always seems to make him go even more ballistic, if that's possible.
 
They had an explanation for the 'statements he made' bit, and while it isn't completely convincing to me it isn't unbelievable either so I don't plan to argue much further. Besides the fetid one is on the prowl and if I hang around there too much I might catch something.
