Libtalkers Push For End To Fox News Channel


'Progressives' Want Fox Hosts Moved To Fast-Food Counter

With more recklessly dishonest rhetoric added by the hour, our "progressive" friends are continuing their campaign to eliminate the Fox News Channel.

Not surprisingly given their history of deceit, libtalkers are adding what they can to the mix, without regard for actual facts connecting FNC to the UK's tabloid phone-hacking scandal.

Libtalker/ notorious trial lawyer Mike Papantonio, known for his work on MSNBC and association with Robert F Kennedy Jr, insisted there was a direct connection between Fox employees here and News Corporation staffers under fire in Britain. But he offered no evidence of wrongdoing by anyone at the cable talker.

And in an even more brazen approach, syndicated radio host Randi Rhodes told listeners she won't be happy until Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and other Fox personalities are working behind the counter at a fast-food restaurant.

While insisting Fox is "hiding everything", she too included no facts to back up an assertion of improper behavior inside FNC.

Here are brief excerpts from both programs:

MIKE PAPANTONIO (Friday 15 July 2011 Hour Two - 08:33): We know that the same people who worked across, across the Atlantic, in Europe, are now over here in the United States working for our media. They're working at the Wall Street Journal. They're working [laughs] at Fox.

I mean, look, the same people who have been involved in all of this, you can't tell me that they didn't understand the methodology for going about tapping people's phones. It was a whole, a whole technology scam they had.

GUEST / PR SPECIALIST CLIFF SCHECTER: Yeah, I mean, and look, you, you're a lawyer and, you know, you need to see these kinds of patterns for a living. Public relations, what I do isn't much different in that way. I'm sorry, you know, I can't make any accusations on, you know, info I don't have. I can only say that seeing how the company has behaved, seeing the types of people they've hired, seeing what they've been accused of abroad, I would be utterly shocked if we didn't find out that the companies here were engaged in the exact same thing.

PAPANTONIO: Yeah, we don't know at this point but I can tell you something. I've seen enough of these stories to understand that there is a pattern and right now what we have is a pattern of, you know, think about this ...

And here's Rhodes:

RANDI RHODES (Friday 15 July 2011 Hour Three - 03:13): I'm not going to be happy, you know, until the only question Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly answering [sic] are, would you like fries with that?

RANDI RHODES (03:26): every time I - I hear Steve Douchy [sic], I want to take a shower! In fact, I do! Steve Douchy [sic], shower time! Time to boil my body! You know!

To our libtalk/MSNBC friends: until any of you can provide evidence of wrongdoing at Fox News, you are LYING. So let's see what you've got.


  • Since when does the Left need FACTS to back up their assertions. Isn't that one of the advantages of being a "progressive" -- that you don't have to have any contact with reality for your beliefs to be true?

  • Even if FNC went away, their comptition would still find a way to lose in the ratings. Same goes for progressive radio pukes, you will always lose in the raings, even if you are the only game in town, & besides, FNC ain't going away anytime soon. They can close their eyes & wish really hard, nothing is going to change. Fox & Friends, O'Reilly, Hannity, Greta, Cavuto, Special Report, & Red Eye are still going to be there to kick their butts. Go after them at your own risk...

  • "I won't be happy until..." - Randi Rhodes

    Well, then you will just never be happy, Randi. I don't think you ever have been.
