Today in Fox News contributors getting beat up on camera: Steven Crowder, described on his Web site as “Fox News’ brightest, funniest young Conservative mind,” found himself in the middle of a crowd full of union folks (understandably upset over the passage of the Right to Work law in Michigan earlier today) who were in the midst of tearing down a tent put up by Americans for Prosperity. Crowder was there asking questions conservative in tone. There appears to be some tight edits in the clip, so we don’t know exactly what provoked it, but this much is clear: A union guy who had enough of Crowder’s you-know-what started punching him in the head.

EDIT: The raw video, which actually aired on Fox News, appears to show an interesting detail.

Fair and Balanced: Here’s a handwritten note, circa-2005, wherein the president of Fox News writes to a Bush administration official—on Fox News stationary—and offers to “help off the record” if needed. The administration official in question was Condoleezza Rice, then-Secretary of State; Rice replied with a generic form letter. The note was obtained by Gawker’s John Cook, who wrote: "Please just imagine for a moment how Fox News would cover the publication of a private note from the editor of the New York Times to an Obama Administration official offering ‘help off the record.’" source

Jon Stewart, describing what it’s like to walk inside the Fox News offices: "It’s like that scene in Indiana Jones where all those kid miners are working …"

This criticism of the polls is craziness. I actually did some research on this today, which is more than you’ve done.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace • Ripping radio host Mike Gallagher for suggesting that the presidential polls, which heavily favor Obama right now, have been manipulated. Wallace goes on: “The polls tell a story… Obama is winning. And Romney has got to win the debate.” Do you think more has to be done to call out this storyline?

R.E.M.: Losing My Religion

(from Out Of Time)

Rock legends R.E.M. to Fox News: Lose our song

Like the R.E.M. song above? So does Fox News, which used it during their coverage of the Democratic National Convention last night. Michael Stipe and his bandmates are not amused, telling Fox News not to do that ever again. “We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there,” Stipe says. Which “puff adder” was Stipe referring to, this one or this one? (Side note: We’re assuming Roger Ailes is not sweating this, considering he’s reportedly negotiating a massive new contract at the moment.)

Ann Romney … looked to me like a corporate wife. The stories she told about struggles — eh! It’s hard for me to believe. I mean, she’s a very rich woman, and I know that, and America knows that.
Fox News contributor Juan Williams • Following Ann Romney’s Tuesday night speech at the Republican National Convention, widely received in conservative circles as one of the most effective speeches ever delivered by a politician’s wife, during post-speech coverage with fellow hosts Bret Baier, Brit Hume, and Megyn Kelly. Given his history of troublesome rhetoric, his co-hosts gave Williams a chance to explain. When asked by Kelly to clarify his “corporate wife” comments, Williams replied that Mrs. Romney’s clearly did not accurately represent a “tremendous” number of women. “She did not convince me that, ‘You know what, I understand the struggles of American women in general,” added Williams. So, do you think he went too far? source (viafollow)
