The Fox ("News") Cycle: From bogus right-wing attack to mainstream news ›

justinspoliticalcorner:

As more and more media outlets follow Fox News’ lead in covering the manufactured New Black Panther Party/Department of Justice (DOJ) scandal, Media Matters offers three case studies of previous bogus right-wing attacks that, with help from Fox News, went mainstream before being debunked.

New Black Panther story following a familiar pattern. Fox News’ embrace of Adams’ accusations against the Department of Justice are in keeping with a pattern observed in previous instances in which a bogus story has jumped from the conservative fringe to the mainstream media:

1. Right-wing bloggers, talk radio hosts, and other conservative media outlets start promoting and distorting the story.

2. Fox News picks up the story and gives it heavy, one-sided coverage.

3. Fox News and conservative media attack the “liberal media” for ignoring the distorted story.

4. Mainstream media outlets eventually cover the story, echoing the right-wing distortions.

5. Fox News receives credit for promoting the story.

6. The story is later proven to be false or wildly misleading, long after damage is done.

This same pattern has played out several times before, with some variations. Three prominent examples from the past two years are the ACORN videos, Barack Obama’s “relationship” with William Ayers, and the “Climategate scandal.”

Hits home on how FNC and FBN operate, as does the rest of the SCLM.

The Fox News solution: more discrimination, less pay, less benefits.

Is this a joke?



Fox “News” is Republican porn…

How to encourage job growth:
Extend unemployment benefits. Forcing people to work is bad policy and hurts everyone.
Increase the federal minimum wage to a living wage, so people only have to work one job (freeing up secondary jobs for other people).
Offer tax rebates for hiring people in marginalized groups.
Stop fucking around and tax millionaires more so that people will have some faith that our government can run an economy that actually cares about the 99%, thereby encouraging spending and job growth.
Create universal healthcare so employees can be more productive and work more days.
And voila! A job creation plan that doesn’t involve fucking over poor people.

It’s hard to do it because you gotta look people in the eye and tell ‘em they’re irresponsible and lazy. And who’s gonna wanna do that? Because that’s what poverty is, ladies and gentlemen. In this country, you can succeed if you get educated and work hard. Period. Period.

Bill “Poverty is a lack of hard work” O’Reilly, for Fox News

(via reallyfoxnews)

When are people going to realize how ignorant this statement is? Social mobility is becoming more and more limited each day, and poverty has nothing to do with hard work. It is blatantly obvious that,

1. Bill O’Reilly has never had a service job in his life

2. inherited wealth, and 

3. has never studied sociological theory or any sociology related topic in his life, or else he might actually understand the concepts of social mobility and oppression/greed.

I wonder how many of his fans he just called “irresponsible and lazy” in this?

(via feministslut)

A guy who gets paid millions for working an hour a day gets to call full-time minimum-wage workers irresponsible and lazy?

The 99% posters I see MOSTLY complain about this lie.  This piece of shit we all get fed that “getting educated” will put us on the path to success.  Now we all took out student loans to pay hyper-inflated tuition prices for bullshit degrees that don’t matter when there are NO JOBS you can put that degree to work with.

of course he’s insulting his fans and dissenters alike, but the difference is his fans will agree with him.  They’re the 53%-ers, the ones who think it’s okay to work 100 hours a week to make ends meet.  Because they believe this bullshit myth of “hard work.” 

Newsflash: The people telling us we just have to “work hard” have no fucking idea what that really even means.  It’s just like being told you didn’t pray hard enough for something to come.  If you’re provided for, you’re working hard enough, whether that means broadcasting one hour a day on television or working 100 hours a week with no benefits.  If you’re not provided for, then you’re not working hard enough.  Even if you’re working 110 hours a week.  

Just like God can’t lose, Capitalism can’t lose either.  Corporations can’t lose.  It’s not their fault when the economy collapses, it’s not their fault when they don’t create any jobs for people to “work hard” at.  It IS their doing when things are going well, though.

Fuck this fucktard. Poverty is not a lack of hard work. It’s a lack of luck. Fuck you rich people and fuck you Bill O’Reilly.

Fox News is an absolute joke, and this video from The Daily Show, while funny, is a very good compilation of why Fox News is hypocritical, biased, and just plain stupid.
