Judging from past "brilliance" from Jossip, the piece is probably NOT satire, Johnny.
 
Sure... they have to mischaracterise the gist of the Judge's opining on what will be the legal defense for Blagojevich.
 
Sure... they have to get to their weird destination (the claim that such conversations are really FNC strategies for smearing Obama) via a route that's as convoluted as Keith Olbermann's psyche.
 
What the hey... Liberal memes don't have to make sense. They are for liberals, afterall.

Congrats J$ on beating Drudge with the Hannity news!
 
I have mixed emotions about the new show format, but I certainly wish it the best. I bet the news qualifies SH to be Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann's pick for worse, worser, worst, really worst, absolutely worst selection of the day. By the way, I believe that K"C"O's subconsious name for that segment is "People of whom I am jealous".

"Breaking: "Hannity" To Premiere"
 
Once again my analysis was spot on over the H&C situation   ... But my posts still continuously get questioned.

The 3 Friends were a hoot this morning.
Doocy appeared with a picture of Obama and Blagojevich together...But the other 2 thought this was a little feeble and wouldn't back him on his case.
Then Gretchen piped up about "the war on Xmas"

Never mind about that...I'm more interested in what skip they're going to through the "fair & balanced" logo in....Fox might as well call their "prime" time...The Republican Snugly Bunnies Time :lol:

Hannity's show will feature something that Cowardly Mr. Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann is too afraid to do; have on people with opposing views to debate with the host.

Yes, they're great aren't they. Makes the morning fun! No doubt why they have such high ratings. Did you know Doocy has won a ton of local emmy awards? Cool guy. Thanks for watching.

I wish you wouldn't harp on moderation issues, especially when they're not true. There is nothing missing from your 6:06 pm post. It's all there, including the last line that you insist was cut off, deleted, censored, whatever it is you are claming. Please do not clog the threads with such nonsense.

Pity half that post is missing, btw CM, your boy KO has yet to hit a demo #1 this week and The Factor line up tonight indicates another 2nd, 3rd or 4th place finish. Oh, the humanity!

Positively last attempt at the missing part...I think it may have been a problem my end...Sorry for being a numpty  
 
"sorry Bill...She was outraged...like a good Fox employee should be....She was extremely upset about this comedy show creation called "Festivus"... Brian then appeared to start pulling the proverbial ....Excellent comedy...But just think what Jon and Keith can do with it :lol:...I await their contribution with bated breath "

"FOX Report Moves to New HD Studio"
 
Don't you miss the old days when someone simply sat behind a desk and told you the news?....Instead of all these new-fangled bells and whistles.
 
I don't suppose announcing jobs loses...Is any more palatable on HD.

I look forward to the Hannity Show. He will still have a brain dead liberal on to debate but he will have more freedom to do his own segments. I would actually like to see Hannity and Glenn Beck team up and argue about true conservatism. If people want to hear liberal opinions they can swing and dead cat and find it. America needs as much conservatism injected into the sewer of television as possible.

No, but the women announcing the job losses are! Do you have HD Chippy? It's worth the extra $10/mo.

Probably not, but with HD you actually get to see the fingerprints in Olbermann's nostrils.
