chandebo says: Hi, I'm a big fan of your blog from Australia and I was just watching Liz Trotta's comments on fox news regarding women in the military and it makes me really mad that someone with such rediculous comments like the reason there are women being raped is because they are there is being given air time. What do you think? Also can you please post a link if you can so your other followers can make up their own minds? Keep up the great work!

» SFB says: First, thank you for the kind words. On the matter of Liz Trotta, well, she’s been no stranger to creating controversy with her words as a Fox News analyst. She’s always been something of a anti-feminist, extremely caustic right-wing commentator, and when you fly that close to the sun, so to speak, sometimes you’ll melt your wings off. This is not to say that the right holds a monopoly on making disgusting remarks on television, to be clear, but in advocating a certain right-wing critique of feminism and bureaucracy, Trotta either completely ignored, or embraced the inhumanity of what she was saying. It goes without saying that women serving in our military deserve better than to expect to be raped by their male colleagues. As for her getting air-time — that’s in Fox News’ hands now. MSNBC seems to have split from Pat Buchanan, who on merit has held many abhorrent positions throughout his life (Trotta derided his removal, interestingly enough). While it’s a big thing to demand somebody’s firing, what Trotta said is far beyond the level of remark that’s brought down much more prominent, essential media personalities than her. Only time will tell. — Chris @ SFB

abitterredpill says: The post you just reblogged about the "Gulf of America" was presented to be satirical. It's considered to be a companion piece to the legislation tabled in Oklahoma to say that life begins at ejaculation. Fox conveniently neglected to mention that part. Just FYI. (Since I can't send links, check NPR's story, "Call It 'Gulf Of America,' Not Gulf Of Mexico, Lawmaker Says In Bit Of Satire")

» SFB says: Well, we’ve been had by Fox News, who presented a satirical bill as a real story. Great. — Ernie @ SFB

It took them a couple of months, but The Muppets have formally responded to Fox Business’ claims that they were brainwashing kids into hating big oil companies. (Which, mind you, they later apologized for.) Kermit’s take? "And besides, if we have a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?"

Fox’s Graphics Department is Having a Very Bad Week

And it’s only Wednesday.

The unemployment graph where 8.6 is magically greater than 8.8 or 8.9 floated through the Tumblr on Monday (the horizontal lines have been added to the original Fox graphic).

Now it’s on to geography. Let’s admire how New Hampshire replaces Vermont and Utah is now Nevada.

They report, you’re deceived!

Roger Ailes should hire more people.

What might be next for Herman Cain? Because I have no doubt that there is a TV-radio future if you wanted one.
Sean Hannity • Discussing what Herman Cain should do next, now that he’s suspended his presidential campaign. Hannity had Cain on his show Thursday night, his first TV appearance since he suspended his campaign amidst allegations of a long-term sexual affair about a week ago. He has since endorsed Newt Gingrichsource (viafollow)
