Fox News Fear Mongering Has Whipped Up Paranoia And Hysteria Over 2010 Census
Reported by Ellen - September 26, 2009 - 14 comments  
Well, there they go again. Those little devils. Making an attempt to link Fox to a murder once again.
What is it with people like that? If they had even 2 ounces of common sense they wouldn't be putting out garbage like this.
By the way, I am still waiting for the Poodles report on the violent Teabaggers, er, liberals in Pittsburgh.

Hey DollartardSlayer, Lets cut out the "Faggot" talk and get back to just bashing the Dollarites for what they say. Okay?
And no, I'm not gay, but there's some people that might come on here that is that's on our side. So let's cool it on that.
Maybe these guys need to get a room.
Gotta love that name "buster" though.

Johnny Dollar, Have you seen this? One of the producers at NBC News used Ms.
Jane Stone's email sent a message to a Anti-Acorn group that said
"Bite Me, Jew Boy". Breit Bart has posted the email.

Brilliant line from Bernie Goldberg in the Cable roughhousing post...
"When Glenn Beck, who doesn't even pretend to be a journalist, breaks stories the so-called mainstream media should be breaking, journalism is in trouble," he said.
Absolutely true.

The award for the dumbest statement of the week by a News Poodle goes to..
We all know that the person or persons who did this to Bill Sparkman will be caught and brought to justice. But what makes me mad is the fear mongers at Fox News, Right Wing Watch, WND, Michele Bachmann and other members of the Republican Party, who spread paranoia and hysteria, will never be brought the justice. They are as guilty as the person who killed the census employee for making some people of this country afraid of their own government.  
The reason the fear mongers have for not being held responsible for this crime is they are hiding behind the freedoms of the press and speech. But they are guilty and they know it.

J$, what's with this article from the Beck detractor? Notice I didn't call him a "hater", that's the favorite term that the left uses for anyone with whom they disagree.
This Jamie person called Beck a hater, yet offered absolutely no proof of who Beck hates, nor did he show any proof of any stories Beck has featured that were not true.
And Scarborough a "true conservative"? He's just a conservative BASHER, that's all. I think I'd rather have McCain in as POTUS than Scarborough, the king of "swaryness".

Maybe the other 15,970 Beck protesters decided to all go to Mount Vernon where they can really make a difference.   
How typical of the Seattle Times to devote awhole article to thirty people protesting outside while completely ignoring the thousands inside and any mention of the actual event.

Patrick has created several new Reddit accounts in the last few days. Anisha (roadie) called him out on it and he isn't even capable of telling her or john t the truth. This guy is priceless. Thank you, Patrick!

"Hey FF, how many names do you use over here? And that is getting to be a low life bastard when you use his childrens picture for your gravitar. What are you a pedophile? Are you like Blackflong?"
Sorry Patrick, I've never posted at Reddit in my life. I read it often from popurls, but I don't have an account there. You are wrong, as always...

And here is another peace-love-and-flowers example from Newswoofs. Priscilla referred to Hannah Giles as a "fantasy ho", and then took issue with Hannah's photo on her defense fund website. She apparently thought it was too sexy. These newshounds don't have the brains of a dog (pun intended).
The poodles can't lecture a single human being about hate speech.

I watched Joy Behar with Howard Kurtz this morning on CNN. Not a bad interview. I actually like the woman. She's funny without being nasty like Maher and others of that ilk.
She even said she likes Ann Coulter. That's a bit of a shock coming from a liberal. At least she's honest.
At times she can be a little prickly. Especially when you ask her about her liberal leanings. She is one of those big government/nanny state types.
We'll have to see how the ratings go. We could use more humor on cable.
I hope she does well.

re: fox bias.
Why isn't the hounds on the case? I mean you know they "watch" fox news so we don't have to, and they have nothing about it!!

OK, guys, come clean.
What is all that about me and Wild Turkey? For some reason I don't remember a thing. Hard to believe, I know, but it does sometimes happen to me.
So, did I really like that Turkey stuff or was it a case of any port in a storm?
Did I have a good time, I hope?
And the biggie, who knows what about that tattoo? How could friends let friends do such a thing?

Grammie, you must have had way too much of the Wild Turkey last night if you don't remember everything that happened.  
We downed the liter and then we zooted an eight ball of blow before going out and getting pictures of Patrick's kids on our asses.  
Why do my legs ache???
