The Daily Banter And Fox News' Pirro Rant (VIDEO)

I deliver news for Fox News! 
I do not watch Fox News. As a craven news geek, I have no problems avoiding the network as it is in no way a news network. Since you already know my thoughts about the network as the television propaganda department for the GOP, there is no need to rehash that. The manner in which Fox News feeds its dedicated viewers is noteworthy.  

People who spend time receiving messages from Fox News are not expending those viewing hours for information. They sit and absorb "paradigm feed" like being "slopped' by a hog farmer to her/his hog pens. And, Fox News delivers.

How many times have you run across a Fox News video segment and noticed each segment has a few things in common? My reference is to host on camera demeanor, not the Fox News Anti-Obama message; a message focused 24/7 on Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS).

First, the raised eye-brows and glaring eyes while delivering the core message. As if the host is saying, "Here it comes folks, now open wide while I feed you another spoon of slop." 

Next, the raised voiceThe message has to be yelled into the brains of Fox News viewers as the message must permeate "tin foil" hats. Yelling also placates the psyches of those who tune-in for fresh "red meat." Network producers and writers are fully aware of the power of viewer high-fives in living rooms across the nation. Have you ever viewed a dull sporting event? Did you see any high fives? 

The message has to also reach the Fox News audience with commensurate vocabulary. When delivering the message to Fox News viewers, Fox writers avoid use of multi-syllable words. If a script could be enhanced with a word beyond the level of eight-grade education, the Fox writers avoid such words. 

Another delivery technique....delivery of messages to the invisible subject who's picture is affixed to the Fox set camera; as if the subject is watching the show. 

Finally, the finger pointing (O'Reilly central). Let's face it, if you want to be successful over on Fox, you must emulate host with the major audience numbers. How else to feed the sycophants?

Since O'Reilly's antics are well known, and Alex Jones falling for Piers Morgan's baiting received word-wide attention, and Jennifer Stefano's Jerry Springer Show like "go-off on MSNBC is also well document, let's move to a former TV personality turned Fox News entertainer.

The following deck and excerpt from The Daily Banter is a must read about a recent broadcast with host Jeanine Pirro. In case time doesn't permit, I have inserted a YouTube video from the piece along with a an item from Bob Cesca's list of Pirro’s ridiculousness. Cesca also addressed new mantra from certain right-wing demagogues. Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney recently mentioned a 60% increase in terrorist attacks.
(Jeanine) Pirro’s five-minute tirade had everything: finger-wagging, fear-mongering, misinformation, wild conspiracy theories, the phrase “cut and run” and, naturally, ball-shaming. It’s a cocktail of Obama Derangement Syndrome delivered with laser-like precision directly into the outrage cortexes of typical Fox News viewers, likely inducing octogenarian white-guy erections with tensile strengths not experienced since Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley and Hume Cronyn splashed around in that magical pool in Cocoon.
4) As if Obama was watching her ridiculous show. Next, Pirro shifted into addressing the president directly. 
“Now, Mr. President, you may see yourself as a war hero. The truth? There has been a 60 percent increase in radical Islamist terrorism since you’ve been in office.” 
It’s unclear which study she was talking about, but the only report we could find that involves a 60 percent increase in terrorist attacks had to do with North Africa, and the increase wasn’t overall for the years 2009-2014, it was from 2013 when there was a 60 percent increase over 2012. If we look at the overall post-9/11 trend for that region, the biggest increase took place between 2001 and 2009 under a different president. Furthermore, other than in 2013, terrorist attacks declined in North Africa from 2009 to 2012. This can’t really be attributed to Obama, but if we’re talking about blaming Obama for the spike in 2013, then he deserves credit for the decline as well, right?

There’s another study by RAND which was recently cited by the always trustworthy Dick Cheney which showed a 60 percent increase in terrorists groups — not terrorism. The study also indicated that this increase was due to weakened governments in the nations where the terrorist groups are forming.

Effective delivery ODS to Fox viewers is easily accomplished. When viewers tune-in to Fox with an anti-Obama paradigm that verges on seething, proper deliver requires nothing more than a mix of the non- verbals as posted above, outright, lies, fodder from The Drudge Report, and creative writers. Fox host are seasoned and highly compensated personalities who should be required to secure licensing from the same licensing authority as the WWE: The Screen Actors Guild.
