“We Were a Stalin-esque Mouthpiece for Bush” — Fox News Insider

February 11, 2011

Asked what most viewers and observers of Fox News would be surprised to learn about the controversial cable channel, a former insider from the world of Rupert Murdoch was quick with a response: “I don’t think people would believe it’s as concocted as it is; that stuff is just made up.”

Indeed, a former Fox News employee who recently agreed to talk with Media Matters confirmed what critics have been saying for years about Murdoch’s cable channel. Namely, that Fox News is run as a purely partisan operation, virtually every news story is actively spun by the staff, its primary goal is to prop up Republicans and knock down Democrats, and that staffers at Fox News routinely operate without the slightest regard for fairness or fact checking.

Believeable – absolutly. One of the amazing thing about regressives is how “on message” they are – all parrotiong the same lies from faux and the rest of the right wing echo chamber.

10. The Robber Barons weren’t robbers — they were capitalist heroes.

9. Sputnik bankrupted the Soviet Union.

8. Galileo was a conservative. (and George Orwell)

7. The Founding Fathers really tried to end slavery.

6. Teddy Roosevelt was a socialist.

5. Conservatives swept MLK and the Civil Rights movement to victory.

4. Margaret Sanger was all about the eugenics.

3. Women were better off before they got the vote.

2. Darwin is a menace to Western Civilization.

1. FDR: History’s greatest monster



  1. It’s absolutely true – right-wingers always seem to be on-message, singing from the same page of the hymnbook.

    So – who is calling the tune?

  2. Seems to be the Kochs in thier many forms – aka the right Wing echo Chamber and Faux.

  3. The only people to whom this is news — are Faux Noise viewers.

  4. I would not know – my TV has an IQ filter….

  5. Just dropping by to read your latest. Miss both Graychin and Yellowdog on the TW comments. Hope you have dug out of the snow Graychin. Love the site. I also like Reader Supported News.

  6. BTW, I am Unifyer on TW although my ability to post seems to have been compromised. I read more than I write anyway. My fav is James Young, since Graychin left.

    • Unifyer / Brian, I remember you and your comments. You were one of my favorites as well. Thanks for stopping by.

      I have no idea what the “standards” for commenters are at the TW. It’s as if they shoot people at random, just to keep everyone on their toes.

  7. “my ability to post seems to have been compromised”

    of course – they gag any progressive with a brain. Another branch of the right wing echo chamber –

    I don’t even read it for laughs anymore. The comments are so utterly predictable.
