“Fuck FOX News!”

posted by on August 25 at 10:22 AM

I realize this plays right into FOX’s hands—ooh, dangerous, potty-mouthed leftists!—but it’s still pretty sweet.

Leave it to FOX News to interject itself into a news story.

I think Fox news has earned its status to be the worst news source in this country ever. I'm still hoping that people will start boycotting their sponsors.

I love that he continues to confuse freedom of speech with being obligated to talk to a reporter. "You don't want to talk to me? 'Guess you don't believe in freedom of speech." Douche.

"Do you believe in freedom of speech?!"
"Fuck the war!"
"Oh come on, that's not necessary."

HA fantastic! So classic. "Do you believe in free speech?" What a douche.

Those terrible hippies...don't they know that Obama was 7 in 1968?

Ask Eli. He understands everything.

Yes, reporter-fellow, free speech. The same right that keeps you from being hanged for your blatant distortions and outright falsehoods. Fuck the war, indeed.

I mean, FOX gave them a chance to spread their message, and they just didn't take the opportunity. I guess those signs and t-shirts weren't enough.

The comment in this video that really served to illuminate the fact it was a true Fox report came fairly early on...

Having introduced the group as a bunch of far-left radical protestors the chap then says "and most surprisingly, they're not *all* supporting Obama." That and the comment at the end reminding people the events being shown were all at the Democratic Convention.

I have the utmost respect for their manipulative skills; much like the British tabloids, I don't like what they're saying, but praise the skill with which it's all put together in the relentless pursuit of a specific goal.

And of course, both the live reporter and the anchor immediately characterize the situation as being "out of control", when clearly there was a great deal of CONTROL being exercised; control of the marchers, control of their route, control of what signs the cameraman chose to focus on, control of which particular protesters the reporter elected to speak to - shit, if there'd been any MORE control there, everyone would have been walking single-file and stopping at cross-walks!

And even more typical is head-shakingly disappointed tone they take when confronted with the fact that some people, upon having a FOX NEWS mic shoved into the faces, DON'T respond with the appropriately obesiant genuflections.

What a wimp! Doesn't he or fox know that freedom of speech includes the right not to talk to obviously biased reporters? What a lump.

I like it! Shouting "Fuck Fox News" is catchy, eloquent and to the point. Let's make it a slogan whenever they show up. If you don't like the F-word, just shout FFN! FFN!

"don't you believe in freedom?"

Kind of an ironic question, no?

I hope he got punched.

Posted by GK | August 25, 2008 12:28 PM

Methinks he was getting his amendments confuzzled, as the chant of "Fuck Fox News" is quite clearly an endorsement of the freedom of speech.

Gheezuz can the youth of America stoop any lower to the cess pool of rank stupidity and crassness? It's no wonder the Republicans have been winning the hearts and minds of Americans for the past 30+ years.

Ugh... I'm ashamed to share his name.

What a douche.

Fuck FOX News!

Posted by Vince | August 25, 2008 12:56 PM

I guess you *can* say fuck on television.

Posted by Ivan | August 25, 2008 1:02 PM

That's catchy....FFN

@18 Huh... so where are the FCC fines when we need them?

Dear Dan,

Griff's treatment has really nothing to do with either Fox or politics. Griff, whose parents undoubtedly named him Griffon, has been routinely getting wedgies and being shunned since at least the 5th grade. He stopped the attempting interviewing when he finally got the full scale adult wedgie from some throughly disgusted protester.

Did I miss your comments about Joe Biden and his horible record as a Drug Warrior? All I saw was a slightly damp looking photo of Settle, with you bitching about, imagine the horror, of rain in Seattle, of all places. Did I get that right?

Dear tara,

On behalf of all of us named Griff, FUCK YOU. I was never bullied for my name, and certainly never turned Republican.

The only aspect of personality the name Griff has any control over is sexual orientation- Hence why there always seems to be a character named Griff in every gay themed movie ever made.

Clearly, the people in this country are finaly awakened to the fact that FOX NEWS is not just a cheap irritating TV , it's the tool of the extreamly powerful few who don't care about America , they care only about there corrupt ideologies, it's a dirty propaganda, I can smell it any time I mistakingly flip to FOX NEWS, I'am with the guy who came up with (FFN)sorry I like the real thing more FUCK FOX NEWS, !!

Posted by sam | August 26, 2008 2:13 PM

LOL! That was great. The reporter was desperately trying to create confrontation. The "Fuck FOX News" made me laugh. I say that anytime some of their bullshit "news" manages to invade my media space.

It's been a long time since I've had to cry over statements that were made by an ignorant human being but Ann Price Mills brought tears to my eyes and heart when she appeared on National Television and set this country back 200 years. She had every right to support her candidate. When the campaign first started I was a Hillary supporter but I changed my position not because Barack is a Black Man and I am a Black woman but because Barack will bring a change to this country that the entire world is hoping for. He represents the best in all of us no matter what color our skin is or what our religious beliefs are. Ann Price Mills, you have demonstrated that racism has nothing to do with the color of our skin but has everything to do with ignorance.
