Kelly_cheney

Dick and Liz Cheney took their laughable anti-Obama campaign to FOX News but weren't even able to peddle their hypocrisy there.

Said Megyn Kelly, after introducing Cheney as "the man who helped lead us into Iraq in the first place:"

“Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir.”

Watch her rip his record of statements about Iraq to shreds, AFTER THE JUMP...

Fox News All But Ignoring Same-Sex Marriage Victories

Obama-FOX

Fox News' coverage of same-sex marriage victories in the past year has been "largely absent" compared to other major networks, according to a new study by Media Matters for America.

GraphFox News has spent just over 10 minutes covering the 13 court decisions in favor of marriage equality since Windsor, according to an Equality Matters analysis examining the five-day windows after each decision, during which period these decisions were actual news stories, with the bulk of the network's coverage devoted to one state, Utah. New Mexico and Michigan's decisions received no coverage at all, and the majority of the decisions received less than a minute of attention[.]

...

For the four states - New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Pennsylvania - where same-sex marriage has taken effect as a result of court rulings post-Windsor, Fox News has provided a scant two minutes and 14 seconds of coverage, compared with nearly 16 minutes from CNN and more than an hour from MSNBC[.]

Luke Brinker, a researcher at Equailty Matters at Media Matters for America, writes that "the network has withdrawn from its battle against same-sex marriage, uninterested in dwelling on the end of an era when warnings of activist judges and slippery slopes could score the network cheap points without raising many eyebrows."

Despite the claim that Fox has withdrawn from the same-sex marriage battle, its strong anti-gay presence is still felt. Just last week Fox had a so-called 'expert' on who said that the Santa Barbara shooter may have gone on his rampage because of "homosexual impulses".

FOX News contributor Dr. Robi Ludwig, who made the claim over the weekend that Santa Barbara shooter Eliot Rodger went on his rampage because he couldn't deal with his "homosexual impulses" and then said she was "misunderstood", has  been fired from her job as a spokesperson for Coldwell Banker Real Estate, according to a note left by the company on Facebook after an inquiry from activist Scott Wooledge.

FOX News Contributor Says Comments on Santa Barbara Killer's Gay Impulses Were ‘Misunderstood’

Ludwig

Reality tv psychoterapist Dr. Robi Ludwig, who over the weekend made the baseless claim that Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger may have gone on his deadly rampage because he couldn’t cope with his “homosexual impulses,” has now taken to Facebook to try and clarify those remarks made on Fox News.

Writes Ludwig:

I was misunderstood on @FoxNews this weekend, when I was asked to hypothesize several factors which could have triggered ‪#‎ElliotRoger‬ 's spree killing. I in NO way meant to indicate being a homosexual or having homosexual impulses is a cause for spree killing. My job on @judgejeanine was to asses several possible triggers for #ElliotRoger and his behavior ‪#‎peace‬ ‪#‎forequalrights‬ However, I apologize to all those who felt offended. That was never my intention.

Basically she’s just sorry if her groundless speculation led audiences to also speculate on her lack of professionalism and intelligence. That was never her intention.  


Dallas Morning Show Host Amy Kushnir Objects To Gay Kiss, Fine With Male Strippers On TV

Amy Kushnir and strippers

Just the other day the internet exploded with the story of KTXD's The Broadcast hostess Amy Kushnir throwing a tantrum and walking off the set because of Michael Sam's televised kiss with his boyfriend.

Said Kushnir of the PDA:

When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong...I don't call it a moment of celebration...It's being pushed in faces.

Kushnir then ran to FOX News to crusade for 'traditional values'.

A televised moment of emotion and tenderness between two men is "wrong" and it's "being pushed in faces" because parents may not "want their children to see this." None of this applies, evidently, to male strippers who not only appeared on her show this past February, but carried her out on to the set.
