Fox News Demagogue Suffers Advertiser Abandonment (Video)

Fox News Demagogue Fails To Consider The Power of Young activist and corporate responsibility

Image result for laura ingraham show advertisers

David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) March 28, 2018
You know David Hogg as a leader in the flourishing #Our Lives Matter movement. Is it possible to possess a rational mind and fail to recognize the downside and gutter cesspool acts of attacking a 17-year-old who dares speak out against the guns Americans gun culture?  

How did the 17-year-old activist respond?  He responded as a person with social media wherewithal, rational thought processes and the activist he responded with a huge weapon. A weapon which carried a stinging lesson for consumer products companies which advertise on Fox News.  His Twitter response. 

After Hogg took to his Twitter account with an exhortation to flood Ingraham's advertisers with concerns about their support for the Fox News demagogue, show advertisers quickly responded. Yesterday afternoon four advertisers dropped the show; as of this morning, eight advertisers have withdrawn ads from the demagogue's show. 

Ingraham's apology (CNBC)

Of course, Americans who are of rational mind know Laura Ingraham is a far-right demagogue who can find no wrong in anything Trump, nor any wrong in anything anti-NRA or anything pro-gun restrictions.  Those same Republicans know more about Ingraham. She now has a show on FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) as well as a radio show.  If you are aware of the daily propaganda mission of Trump's most admired TV network you know she is now on Fox solely due to the firing of the network's former flagship demagogue, Bill O'Reilly. 

Ingraham fills O'Reilly ratings laden Fox broadcasts slot like an expensive leather glove. She feeds Right-wing viewer propaganda sponges comparable to O'Reilly with a slightly less inclination for on-air racism.  While she is less inclined towards weekly forays into feeding the bigoted minds of Fox News viewers, she never misses a beat when she finds an opportunity. How better to tickling her Twitter audience while offering favored remarks to the NRA than to attack one of the now very visible Parkland Shooting survivors?

Cable news has covered Ingraham's grotesque tweet, but as is generally the case MSNBC exceeds other networks in exposing the Fox News underbelly.  I don't believe there is an on-camera response to Ingraham which surpasses the scope and depth of comments from Republican Steve Schmidt (MSNBC contributor). 

"Another example of an adult acting terribly". MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt (Republican..Correction: rational Republican)

Of the 13 advertisers posted in Hoog's Twitter post, nine have to return corporate decency via dropping Ingraham. O'Reilly was fired from Fox News due to an avalanche of fleeing advertisers. Wonder how long FOXPEN with value Ingraham's entertainment potential as the day progresses?

Let's end with a segment from The Last Word (it includes additional comments about Ingraham's advertisers) along with a quick segment regarding #OurLives Matter as we move towards the November mid-term elections. Steve Kornacki and potential election impact (poll data).

The Daily GOP Ignominious: GOP Theatrics and Buffoonery

GOP theatrics and right-wing callousness. 

After a busy week regarding issues surrounding federal governance, international intrigue and evidence of GOP mental deterioration, we thought it might be time for a visual and auditory quick hit.

MSNBC  Chris Hayes, "ALL IN" and "want does the GOP actually want."

Chris Hayes and more.... GOP theatrics that are even starting to show to "low information" people. The charade is actually historic in precedent and humongous in scope.

Mediaite captures major conservative anarchy and legislative terrorism. Hannity earlier this week spoke openly about not being bother by the shutdown. Hannity is a multi-millionaire. How can Fox News exist with such an obvious affinity for class division and class warfare? Of course, Hannity would not care about the plight of the 800,000 potential furloughed Americans. And, he certainly is insulted from any consideration of reductions in WIC (Women, Infants and Children) funding. FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) literally supports warfare from millionaire members of congress and millionaire show hosts against the middle class and lower income strata.

It is revealing, gleeful, enlightening and validating to see American conservation show its most horrific and embarrassing sides.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Fox Cuts Away From Obama Speech!

Fox News is well beyond shameful. The network often cuts away for President Obama's national appearances and speeches. Today was no exception.

Watch!  FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) opted for 'breaking (and critical) news about naming a Royal in Britain. When the network returned to their on-air personality, the key story was the disastrous and soon to be related to the past Anthony Weiner.

Fox ,oh Fox where art thou? 

While a bit over the top, I offer that Fox would have covered a Bush event even if the event was an Executive Branch Sphincter/Flatulence Distance Shot Contest.

Challenge Warren With False Rhetoric, Interview "Over."

The Wall Street analyst in the embedded video is so anti-Obama, I generally give him five to six seconds on my television set before clicking over to watch the Three Stooges.

Despite clear evidence the Obama Administration has been 'dead-on' working the nation back from an economic abyss, Fox News demagogues rant and rave false rhetoric everyday.

The following represents yet another example of agenda driven rhetoric from the Right. Problem is, the Wall Street quack ran up against a person with clearly superior intellect, 360 subject matter knowledge which will always trump "agenda', and administration credibility as stated above.  It makes me wonder, why even challenge. But, then I am not being paid multiple six figure compensation to support the FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network)/GOP 'noise machine' for broadcast to conservative America.

GOP, Wall Street and conservative hatred of  financial market regulation is as ridiculous as a world wide collapse of economies based primarily on  their "FREE MARKETS: NO REGULATION" belief-system, policy, and practice. 

Sign the petition to support the new Glass-Steagell bill:

On Friday, Elizabeth Warren went toe-to-toe with Wall Street analysts on CNBC to argue for the Glass-Steagell bill. And she won.

MSNBC Hosts Err On The Side Of Political Correctness

Propaganda gets unnecessary time and Left media reels from comments on behalf of Rand Paul? Rand Paul?

We all know the effectiveness of propaganda.  Since the beginning of human conflict, propaganda has played a key role in influencing minds. Since we are North Americans, how about a few examples of propaganda (We make no assessment of good or bad propaganda).

Pre-Revolutionary War
Mocking denouncement of Governor-General Chalmers in 1751, a year before the Proclamation of Enlightenment:
"Keep that man away, his hands can't be trusted... with our wives, or our country!" 
Cartoon from 1777. Depicting the failure of British Incursions of 1770.Image
"They've come back for more and they can't hack it. Coe's made sure they leave red faced and red coated."
The Civil War
Sort of reminds of Dinesh D'Souza's
book and film garbage
No words necessary
The House Breaker and Thief

Much more recent in US History
WWII                                                         US Jim Crow

OH, how times have changed!

Propaganda from the conservative Right is much more prevalent than at any time in the history of mankind.  Our  ancestors and more recent generations did not have the opportunity for uninterrupted propaganda delivered directly into the home.  Propaganda in the morning,  propaganda throughout the day and major Right-wing propaganda via FOXPEN (Fox News Propaganda and Entertainment Network) throughout the evening, if you so choose.

You are correct!  MSNBC also offers a full schedule of politics and news based commentary and reporting. Often, I view MSNBC segments are required viewing that satisfy a dire need to offset the propaganda from Fox News and the indifferent irreverence of CNN. Although  I admit, from my perspective,  CNN offers more direct news than either MSNBC or FOX News.

Ben Carson Shows Deep Levels of Bigotry And Poor Judgement, Plus False Apology

"Gifted Hands"; Bigoted Mind.

Bill O'Reilly once used the politically confused Juan Williams for "Color" commentary regarding getting on a place and being "nervous" (about people who appear in Muslim garb) as "Muslims." Color commentary is most definitely a intended metaphor! Williams allowed himself to be used for backing Bill O'Reilly's overt racism and Williams paid the price of termination from NPR. All Muslims do not wear "Muslim Garb" and most airline suicide bombers have not worn traditional muslim garb. Factually, most European Muslims do not wear such garb.  That sheds considerable light on Williams' racism.  It should not have taken Einstein like brilliance to understand terrorist are coached to appear as they are not.  O'Reilly stooge. Williams was serving as an on-air flatulence clearing butt-boy for Bill O'Reilly. Of course, FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) hired the 'color commentator'; immediately as I am sure O'Reilly felt his 'butt-boy" had suffered for running interference and picking up O'Reilly's fumble.

We have seen Herman Cain on public platform claim his is a "brother from another mother to the Koch Brothers." 

The right has of late done a yeoman's job of finding and proliferating African-Americans who stand to reap major celebrity, income, and notoriety via utterance of ridiculously 'sick' comments.  Alas the Right has found one who carries credentials at the PhD, M.D. level to join the likes of Ron Paul and Rand Paul.  I should quickly add the quality of political an social cognition from the GOP's latest spokesperson is not much an improvement of the Paul and Paul. 

Ben Carson delivered the keynote speech at a prayer breakfast yet feet from a documented racist in Jeff Sessions (R) AL, and the 44th President of the United States of America. We linked the speech in case you have interest.  My thoughts on his words: 27 minutes of "Yawn."

And, as is customarily the case the latest GOP Frankenstein Monsters has already blown-up in the face.  He has hit the trail with early apologies for bigoted remarks and innuendo against liberals which are not born-out by facts.  while complete reading is not necessary follow the good doctors, mind-boggling bigotry and offensive remarks. I wonder if he practices as such when his patients to not fit his paradigms of acceptability.

Ben Carson Attempts To Explain Away Controversial Marriage Equality Remarks, Apologizes "If Anybody Was Offended" (Link) 
Ben Carson Goes On The Offensive, Lashes Out At "Racist" Critics (Link)
Media Matters has reported on the good doctors cognitive constipation accompanied by oral diarrhea. 

Dr. Ben Carson, after comparing marriage equality advocates to supporters of pedophilia and bestiality, and then apologizing "if anybody was offended" by those remarks, and then attacking his critics as "racist[s]" who were trying to portray him as a bigot, is back to apologizing for his "offensive" comments. 
According to New York magazine, Carson, a professor of neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical School and nascent right-wing media star, sent an email to "the Hopkins Community" saying that he is "sorry for any embarrassment" his anti-gay comments may have caused them. 
But what really saddens me is that my poorly chosen words caused pain for some members of our community and for that I offer a most sincere and heartfelt apology. Hurting others is diametrically opposed to who I am and what I believe. There are many lessons to be learned when venturing into the political world and this is one I will not forget. Although I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman, there are much less offensive ways to make that point. I hope all will look at a lifetime of service over some poorly chosen words. 
Carson's apologetic email was sent just "a few minutes" after Paul Rothman, Johns Hopkins' dean of medical faculty, sent his own email calling Carson's remarks "hurtful, offensive," and "inconsistent with the culture of our institution."

Paul Rothman, Johns Hopkins' dean of medical faculty (Washington Post) on Carson offensive remarks.

It should be noted in case you missed a key fact, Carson did not apologize until shortly after his managing Dean declared his remarks offensive. I find that typically Republican, commonly false, and existentially insincere. If the heat had not reached down to his level, the rest of the nation may not have heard his phony words of apology. The good doctor is no Sarah Palin, Gohmert, King, Bachmann, Gingrich, trump, nor Perry. He has great cognitive abilities that are often used to carefully craft poignant messages to patients and students His attempt to use the increasingly common words, of "I misspoke, what I meant to say....." reminds me very much of Mitt Romney's post Boca Raton comments.

In March of this year Romney spoke with FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network):
Mother Jones

In an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News that aired on Sunday, Romney was once again asked about the video Mother Jones revealed last September. Here's the exchange:

Wallace: George Will said you've got a problem when voters don't like you. You've got a real problem when voters think you don't like them.
Romney: Yes, it was a very unfortunate statement that I made. It's not what I meant. I didn't express myself as I wished I would have. You know, when you speak in private, you don't spend as much time thinking about how something could be twisted and distorted and—and it could come out wrong and be used. But, you know, I did. And it was very harmful. What I said is not what I believe. Obviously, my whole campaign—my whole life has been devoted to helping people, all of the people. I care about all the people of the country. But that hurt. There's no question that hurt and did real damage to my campaign.
While we at times hear such form the Left, It seems to me we hear or read a false apology from the Right almost on a weekly basis.   Of course, President Obama has today apologized for referring to the California State Attorney General as the most attractive of them all.  A not-so-smart remark from the president, but his remarks pale in relation to the vitriolic drivel from the Right.
