The Daily GOP Ignominious: The Factor's O'Reilly "Obama had nothing to do with getting bin Laden!" (Media Matters UPDATE)

What you are about to see and hear is over-the-edge demagoguery with negative intent. Bill O'Reilly recently proven to be the most non-credible, embellishing and lying television personality, programs one of Fox News's most bizarre "leggy" hosts to partake in Obama bashing. The booking of Tantaros was not a surprise as the theme of the segment related to comment from of all people Dick Cheney. Tantaros surpasses all hosts on Fox with her level of zany and well concocted anti-Obama dogma.

Fox News and right wing media continues to offer a platform for the nation's most ancient of conservative dinosaurs and a chief policy framer for the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. Dick Cheney is traipsing across conservative media like Tiny Tim "Tip Toe (ing) through the Tulips" , taking shots at President ObamaOf course, the Paleozoic Era relic is an anti-Obama "on demand performance" for Fox News entertainers and fresh "Kool-Aid" for O'Reilly viewers. As audience that is as easily entertained as hunting Ants with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a hot sidewalk.

The following segment was broadcast as anticipated from Fox. Bill O'Reilly and his producers inserted a "red meat" (alleged) democratic strategist who was ill prepared to respond to O'Reilly poking at Obama with no international accomplishments through two terms in office. Sadly, the alleged Democratic strategist, appeared to give-in to O'Reilly's attempt at "gotcha." Before a complete cave to the Fox News chief demagogue, the guest summonsed-up bin Laden. If O'Reilly did not anticipate the response he must have been preoccupied with deciding which international event he would insert himself before the end of the segment. Maybe, he was trying to recall if he was across the field from the bin laden Compound during the raid. He was taken aback and literally fumbled through the last seconds of the interview. O'Reilly may have actually uttered an under his breathe "whatever", after asserting Obama had nothing to do with the killing of the nation's number one enemy. After throwing-out US Intel and Navy Seals as the entities that got bin Laden, The Factor's producer quickly ended the segment. 

Saved by the show producers. Even a novice Democratic strategist would surely report with facts related to the president's ultimate responsibility for the killing of bin Laden. 

 An image such as this was planned to the minute such that all parties gathered in the White House Situation Room.  The order for the raid came from the president with the full consultation of military officers and Intel staff in the room. Navy Seals who raided the bin Laden compound were skilled and courageous military executioners. Men who executed a mission planned by some in attendance that evening and key operatives in the field. Fox News producers ended the segment before the alleged strategist summoned-up the fact that President Obama ordered and authorized teh raid on the bin Laden compound. Within weeks of taking office in 2009, President Obama gave orders for a 90 day operational plan with timelines regarding the bin Laden elimination.

O'Reilly said, "Obama had nothing to do with it," probably sent his viewers off into the night to finish their stove-top tin ball popcorn and beer safe in their dreams and anticipation of the next night's O'Reilly Factor. Problem! You can rest assured the viewers did not end their evenings with thoughts of this:

Did he say, "Hiding in a cave?" 

The problem with demagoguery? It fails to consider archival history and it is more often than not absent of fact while feeding off emotion.

Ebola: "It's Here."

"It's Here!"

"Witch Doctor"

"Traditional Medical Care"

Fox News draws the attention of CNN's Reliable Sources, Brian Steltar's and production team.

Fear, loathing and racism, the hallmark of Fox News and a testament its viewers. Viewers who not only tune-in for daily does of various concoctions of derangement, viewers who tolerate and possible relish the undercurrents of racism that permeates and infiltrates Fox News as a media or entertainment center. 

Brain Steltar and guest Miles O'Brien explore the dark passages of Fox News as network "Fear Bringer."

For expediency and out of respect for our many screeds on Fox News, I will simply end the piece here.

When your resume includes this, should we really expect more?

Not a Fox News set image
Competent minds and purveyors of media (even opines) do not have to go there. But, ultimately the lowest level of denominator is the viewer who seeks or tolerates such mindless libido enticement laced propaganda.

Fox News Writers and "Camera Chair" Personality Suggest "Going Postal!"

Fox News personality goes "postal!".

"The Camera Chair!"  At what price the camera chair? Does a network executive who said he hired Palin "....because she was hot", provide any reason to believe this hire was the result of journalistic acumen? 

A never before linked source: Teensleuth.  Ah, the Teensleuth read turned into a far better screed (read) than anticipated.  We suspect Tantaros, Fox News bimbo, followed a carefully orchestrated script as she worked up to her proclamation that Obama voters should be punched in the face. Fox News writers and management care not that there are millions who find the DOJ accusation against the Fox News reporter abhorrent.  The tendency to blanket anyone who does not support conservatism into a "Binder of haters"  like "Binders full of women" is yet another reason Fox News does much more to hurt conservatism than the network helps the cause.

You know, the dextro-amphetamine that the Air Force allegedly fed to pilots to keep them fightin’? The potential side effects include psychotic behavior, anxiety, paranoia, aggression, violent behavior, confusion, auditory hallucinations, mood disturbances and delusions. I imagine punch bowls full of this shit on the tables in green rooms. They probably shovel handfuls into their pieholes while they prepare for their stupid show by snorting bath salts and playing with bubble wrap and uber violent video games where they have to defend the US from liberals, minorities, and zombies. 

Serious news reporter (above),  Andrea Tantaros  – one of the however-many hosts of Fox News’ The Five – became so incensed at the Justice Department for investigating one of the network’s reporters that she told her viewers on Thursday to find anyone who voted for President Barack Obama and “punch them in the face.” In one of those savvy responses that earn her the big bucks: 
“Fox said, we’re targets, clearly Media Matters and others have put us on a target list! And they said, ‘Oh, Fox is just crazy! They’re just paranoid!’ Really? Are we? This is what is happening to our press! This is Obama’s America! It’s like the Soviet Union! He said he would change the country. He said it. And a lot of people voted for him.” 
She concluded her psychotic rant with: 
“And if you see any of those people today, do me a favor, punch them in the face.” 
After a commercial break, a caller from South Carolina told Tantaros that he hated Obama, but worried that telling people to punch Obama voters in the face was sending the wrong message. “To be clear, I didn’t say punch Obama in the face,” the Fox News host pointed out. “You’re going to get me arrested with this type of government.” 
“If someone voted for him!” she insisted to the caller.  
“If anyone that you know who voted for President Obama, smack ‘em down!”

We realize jingoism is a basic DNA component of modern conservatism.  However, GOP party leaders might do well to rein-in the propagandizing drivel from Fox News writers.
