Dr. Hill refuses to be the "House Negro" that Juan Willams is... Dr. Hill a true "Field Negro" won't brown nose or suck up, he is better off.

Does the newshounds every read the articles on fox nation? Another fine example:
FOX NATIONS ASKS: Did a Former Obama Official Kill Limbaugh’s NFL Bid?  
NEWSHOUNDS: Tin Foil Hat Alert! Fox Nation Cooks Up A Conspiracy Theory To Baselessly Suggest Obama Connected To "Killing" Limbaugh's NFL Bid
BTW there are things I don't agree with 100% with fox nation on (the approved comments for one and the fact that they link to RW sites most of the time, newsmax, world net daily are some examples)

Re: Fox News Watch embed video: If Keith and Rachel got more than a passing mention at the end, I'd suggest that this video also be posted at OlbyWatch.

Maddow and Olbermann respond to George H.W. Bush’s attack on them as ’sick puppies.’

A new perspective on Glen Beck's ratings that could really hurt a guy's feelings:
Fun With Ratings: How’s that Boycott Against Beck Working Out?
Olbermann 8pm + Maddow 9pm + Olbermann 10pm + Maddow 11pm + 109,000 other people = Beck at 5pm.

In this little smear job Aunty Em doesn't appear to know the difference between Beck calling Hitler a great mind and Anita Dunn actually calling Mao one of HER favorites.
Hey, but these are the Hideous Hens of Houndland. They need someone to attack and smear.
p.s. Has anyone else noticed that all of these left wingg attacks have had very little effect on Fox?

I disagree, Blackflon. All the left wing attacks are having a positive effect on Fox! Murdoch couldn't ask for more free advertising.

Axelrod is the "whining czar".
