Fox News’ Romney Campaign Ad

June 1, 2012 by  

The most “fair and balanced” arm of the Mitt Romney campaign took fire for a video it produced on Thursday.

More accurately, “Fox and Friends,” a show airing on the “fair and balanced” Fox News channel, aired an exceptionally partisan four-minute video about President Barack Obama that could have doubled as a campaign advertisement for Romney.

The hosts of the show described the video as a “look back” at Obama’s four years in office. It was aired multiple times throughout the show.


Bill Shine, the executive vice president for programming at Fox News, said in a statement: “The package that aired on ‘Fox & Friends’ was created by an associate producer and was not authorized at the senior executive level of the network. This has been addressed with the show’s producers.”

Fox News later removed the video from both its main website and from Fox Nation.

There is no evidence of what Fox’s motivation was in creating the video, but it has been noted that Romney’s former employer Bain Capital is one of the primary owners of Clear Channel Communications Inc., a broadcasting company that owns conservative talk radio shows throughout the country. In 2005, Clear Channel picked Fox News Radio, a division of Fox News, to be the primary source of national news for most of its news and talk stations.

    Bain influence seems unlikely as the current head of Bain is an Obama supporter. I haven’t seen the video as my connection doesn’t support the bandwidth, but any objective ‘look back’ at the Obama fiasco would, if objective and accurate, necessarily show Obama in a less than favorable light. An accurate portrayal of a failed President is not the same as bias.

    I am more concerned with the PC attitude shown by Bill Shine in having the video removed and disavowing the presentation. An attitude of “we didn’t authorize this” is very much different than a claim that it was biased or inaccurate.

      Jon,
      The head may be an Obama supporter, but strange things are going on at Clear Channel. Take for instance the San Francisco area radio station Green 96. This progressive AM channel had some of the top rated shows in the area, but Clear Channel decided to shake things up. First they announced that they were dropping ALL progressive shows from their lineup and changing the name of the station to KNEW. Given that there were other channels airing Limbaugh, Hannity and the other top Conservative shows it seemed like a fools game and the calls protesting the change made that clear. Finally they decided to simply move all but 1 of their top rated shows to the night (Randi Rhodes is still on from 12 to 3) and fill in the drive time slots with financial talk and Glen Beck. Yep, they replaced Stephanie Miller’s highly popular morning show with Beck from 6 to 9. The result, a 90% drop listeners. Now why would any smart business person make such a change? Is it a coincidence that this is a presidential election year? Is it a coincidence that the parent company is owned by Bain Capital? Can you think of ANY good reason to change the format of the only progressive station in an area so well known for progressive politics if not to disrupt the flow of progressive ideas during an election year?

        Progressive ideas? More like progressive insanity!!!

      • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

        K1 this sounds like a grteat plan to me!!!! I love it!!

      • Kinetic1

        Jay and Brad,
        Yes, from a right leaning bias it sounds good, but from a sound business standpoint? There were already 2 stations devoted to conservative talk in an area that is predominantly liberal. What financial gains are you likely to see by moving a hugely popular radio host to the late evening and replacing her with Glen Beck, a man even the right has stopped listening to?

      • Vigilant

        “Can you think of ANY good reason to change the format of the only progressive station in an area so well known for progressive politics if not to disrupt the flow of progressive ideas during an election year?”

        Can you think of ANY good reason to challenge the Constitutionality of such a move? That’s right, you can’t.

        And, as you say, they may want “to change the format of the only progressive station in an area,” I say, “so what?” Are you now the business manager of Clear Channel or Bain? What they do or do not do to garner ratings, or to legally conservatize their programming is their business, not yours. They will succeed or fail based on subsequent ratings, and even if the change is a “loss leader” to remold political thinking, that may not fit your progressive idea of “fairness,” but it’s perfectly legal.

        You folks on the left, of all people, should not live in glass houses. The “Fairness Doctrine” is and always has been a leftist idea to neuter the conservative media outlets though regulatory fiat. Perhaps the only thing that has obstructed its passage is the fact that the media libs know it would destory them as well, and even more so because their programming is more egregiously biased.

      • Vigilant

        Again, Kinetic1 says, “Yes, from a right leaning bias it sounds good, but from a sound business standpoint?”

        If you’d like to apply for a job as media financial consultant at Clear Channel, by all means put in your resume. If their motivations are to influence political opinion even at a loss of profit, that, my friend, is their decision, not yours.

      • Kinetic1

        Vigilant,
        What a STUPID argument! Had I claimed that this move was illegal you might have a point, but I didn’t. If I had said it these changes were unfair your point about the fairness doctrine might have struck a chord, but I said nothing of the sort. I simply questioned the reasoning behind a decision that makes no sense in terms of ratings of financial gain.

        Clear Channel does indeed own KNEW and as such has the legal right to make whatever changes they see fit (providing they do not break any FCA laws.) Listeners have the right to change the channel and have done so in numbers so large that it must be costing Clear Channel a bundle. You may not find this odd. You may be willing to just ignore corporate media manipulation of the air waves, apparently for the purpose of altering the political views of a region. No, that’s not true. You and others complain about the “Liberal Media” all the time! Many of you claim that FOX News is the only accurate source on TV. You know, this brings to mind something I once heard;
        “You folks on the” right, “of all people, should not live in glass houses.”

      • Vigilant

        Judging from the heat of your reply, I know I’ve hit the nerve on the head. Thanks for confirming that.

      • devil dog, USMC,DAV.

        Wake up people. You better believe FOX is fair and balanced. Makes me laugh how you all don’t say a word about the state run media like,msnbc,cnn,abc,and cbs. They are on EVERY day putting commercials out for the treasonous so called imposter in chief. Yet Fox puts one show, that tells the truth,something the left clowns can’t handle, and they go nuts! It’s really laughable the way you clowns don’;t say a word about them. Like trickle up his leg guy wth the tight shorts that makes no sense whatsoever, along with the nazi schultz, and les,madcow.olberman got so bad, that even nbc had to fire him, and then went on ‘current’ tv via algore, and got fired there.When do you ever see both sides on their shows, where FOX has the dummy lefties on every day.there is no comparison shine.

      • Kinetic1

        Vigilant,
        You are correct. Your response did hit a nerve. You see, I’m tired of trying to hold a reasonable fact based conversation with individuals on the right, only to find that the best they can do is resort to name calling (Jay) or prove that they have no real understanding of the Constitution by using it as a club. Clear Channel’s rights under the Constitution to not invalidate my right to question their intent. Do you get that? Do you understand that the Right does not have an exclusive claim to rights under the Constitution? And your suggestion that I was questioning their rights does not make it so, no matter how tightly you wrap yourself in the flag.

        I understand that you thought you were making an intelligent point, but you weren’t. I also understand that, unable to think of a logical reason for Clear Channel’s actions your only defense was to change the subject. And, when your failure to mount a decent argument was pointed out, you claimed success for getting a response. Had I not responded, would you have claimed success for my silence as well? You may feel empowered by your use of childish gamesmanship, your exercise in Roveian tactics, but this is no a substitute for intelligent conversation and debate.

      • Vigilant

        Kinetic1 says, “I also understand that, unable to think of a logical reason for Clear Channel’s actions your only defense was to change the subject.”

        I submit that your understanding is faulty, not mine.

        “Unable to think of a logical reason?” I quote my own posting: ” If their motivations are to influence political opinion even at a loss of profit, that, my friend, is their decision, not yours.”

        That’s called “a logical reason,” or do you need glasses?

    • Sharr

      Blah Blah Blah – Why isn’t the media reporting on what is really important?
      How about the Bilderberg Meeting at the Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia?
      It is being held from May 3l – June 3, 2012 and all of the power brokers are
      coming!!
      It is known to the Bilderberger Group as The Palm Tree Conference.
      You know how many Palm Trees there are in Chantilly, Virginia!!!!
      The Logan Act says American citizens aren’t supposed to go to these kinds of
      meetings are they???
      Didn’t HillBill “Blue Dress” Clinton pay $300,000 fine for going to a Bilderberger Meeting?
      Didn’t she???? Oh – Didn’t she also lie about that??
      Are Geithner and Bernanke and Kissinger fined for going????

  • http://google Mary

    There isn’t anything wrong with the video, Obama and others got their knickers in a knot over snippets of the truth, but sometimes hope and change, PLUS truth hurts!

    • CJ

      I agree. Restating the facts in a comparison, such as this video, is what I think all the media should be doing. Although FOX (overly) used graphics for sensationalism, this is what people have come to expect, let alone demand, from the media. I don’t agree with the tactic as its purpose it simply to get attention to appease advertisers, but it is required in today’s ‘over stimulated’ society, just to stay equal to everything else, and get the message out. Sam seems to be trying to make a big deal over nothing.

      • Vigilant

        “Sam seems to be trying to make a big deal over nothing.

        Truer words have never been spoken, CJ,

        I have more than once expressed some doubts as to where Mr. Rolley’s sentiments lie.

        He once again uses a headline that is not quite kosher, with “Fox News’ Romney Campaign Ad.”

        You need to go to Rolley’s second paragraph to see, “More accurately, ‘Fox and Friends,’ a show airing on the “fair and balanced” Fox News channel, aired an exceptionally partisan four-minute video about President Barack Obama that could have doubled as a campaign advertisement for Romney.”

        A number if issues present themselves with this kind of reporting:

        (1) “Fox and Friends” is not NEWS. It is entertainment, as are O’Reilly, Hannity and Greta Van Susteren. The headline implies it was aired as a part of a news broadcast. It was not.

        (2) The headline calls it a Romney campaign ad. It was not. Rolley later backsteps with “could have doubled as a campaign advertisement for Romney.” “Could have doubled as” and “is” are two very different assertions. Does he have evidence that Romney campaign money was used to fund the associate producer’s efforts? I don’t think so.

        (3) He places “fair and balanced” in quotation marks, as if it’s a phrase to be leery of. While there’s no doubt that Fox presents overall a traditionalist, conservative viewpoint, there’s also no doubt that independent media research has shown time after time that Fox is indeed the most fair and balanced media outlet by showing both sides of the story.

        (4) “Exceptionally partisan” it may be, but note that in Mr. Rolley’s haste to condemn it, he offers NO rejoinder, NO disputation of the facts in a video which clearly spends about half of the time using Obama’s own words. I would challenge him to find anything unfactual in that video.

        Mr. Rolley forgets that words are important. They mean something, and to abuse journalistic standards to hide a very transparent attempt to mold the direction of thought is to be guilty of the same media bias of which he accuses Fox News.

        His bio says, ” He is dedicated to seeking the truth and exposing the lies disseminated by the mainstream media at the behest of their corporate masters, special interest groups and information gatekeepers.”

        Mr. Rolley, who is your corporate master or special interest group?

      • Vigilant

        Incidentally, Rolley conveniently overlooks the fact that Fox also airs anti-Romney ads that are so controverial as to be newsworthy.

      • GregS

        Excellent points and very well stated, Vigilant! I also agree 100 percent with you about questioning where Sam Rolley’s sentiments lie. In addition to what you have mentioned about him, I would like to point out that he seems to rely VERY heavily on liberal news sources, such as the Huffington Post, for the articles that he writes. In fact, some parts of his article on this page could have been lifted (with a little re-wording) right out of the following Huffington Post artcle:

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/30/fox-and-friends-anti-obama-video_n_1556557.html

        I find it very disconcerting that Sam Rolley is using the divide-and-conquer strategies of the liberals on what is supposed to be a conservative website, using very liberal sources for his articles, during a time when we, as conservatives, should be uniting as a single block to remove Obama from office in November!

    • eddie47d

      This only proves that FOX is a propaganda arm of the Republican Party to show such a long ad.

      • Paines Ghost

        Eddie,

        If this piece “PROVES” that Fox News is a Republican Propaganda machine, then what does the constant PRO-OBAMA drumbeat on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN prove that they are ALL COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA OUTLETS? Look at the preponderance of the articles and “NEWS” stories carried on any of these stations and you will see one very consistent theme” REPUBLICANS BAD, DEMOCRATS GOOD. They are all in lockstep with this. New York Times, WAPO, all of them.

        If you can’t see that the mainstream media are pretty much ALL actively promoting OBAMA, then it is because your ability to grasp REALITY has been degraded by years of listening to and believing the liberal drivel that passes as NEWS at the mainstream outlets. Seriously, you cannot possibly believe that the entire mainstream media being PRO-OBAMA is what you would call FAIR and BALANCED. Of course, ONE OUTLET cries out against the overwhelming unbalance, and the mainstream media, and all the leftie TROLLS, are outraged.

        How about this: Real AMERICANS, those that still love their nation, those that believe in WORK, HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and the CONSTITUTION are completely fed up with the offerings at the mainstream media. Have the statistics not made this perfectly clear? And your leftie heroes, such as OLBERMAN and MADCOW have left off with REPORTING and do little more than spend their time attacking conservatives. Of course, YOU would call that fair and balanced.

        You want to talk FAIRNESS, get a clue and get a grip on reality.

    • Vigilant

      Chester coughs up a hairball with “So glad to hear from believers in Fox News “Fair and Balanced” reporting.”

      Suggest you direct your comments elsewhere, shill. Like for example the MSNBC editing of the Zimmerman tape to fan the flames of race wars,

      The list of liberal media lies is voluminous.

      • http://wildeyguns.com Wildey

        At the turn of the 20th century, news papers made it a common practice to simply publish the congressional registry. There was no editing. People were given the privilege of forming their own opinion of what’s happening. Today, you rarely see anything that could be a question. Everything coming to us is in the form of facts. We’re being taught to react to the “facts” / propaganda, not to take the time to reason and then act. I’ve never heard Obama or Romney ask a question. We’re suppose to accept everything they say as truth.

  • GregS

    As I’ve stated before in these forums, Sam Rolley is an Obama shill, and this is just another one of his articles that shows this. He misses the point when he implies that the video was not “fair and balanced.”

    It’s a well known fact that, in the coming months, the liberal news media will do all they can to protect Obama and gloss over all of his failures and lies. The video fills the void, which the liberal news media has created, with the facts that the liberal news media will definitely leave out.

    In this respect, Fox News is fair and balanced.

    My question to you, Mr. Rolley, is: Why didn’t you complain about the front-page, factually incorrect, hit piece that The Washington Post conveniently ran, which characterized Romney as a gay-bashing bully, about the same time that Obama came out with his support of gay-marriage?

    If you want to talk about media bias, Mr. Rolley, I would suggest that you broaden your focus at least a little bit!

    • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

      Dear GregS,

      You write: “As I’ve stated before in these forums, Sam Rolley is an Obama shill, and this is just another one of his articles that shows this.” Your statement is illogical.

      You write: “It’s a well known fact that, in the coming months, the liberal news media will do all they can to protect Obama and gloss over all of his failures and lies.” Yes.

      You write: “The video fills the void, which the liberal news media has created, with the facts that the liberal news media will definitely leave out. In this respect, Fox News is fair and balanced.” No. It demonstrates that Fox is a mouthpiece for Romney as the liberal media is a mouthpiece for Obama. It’s all designed to support the false left/right paradigm. It also demonstrates that you (and most who have commented here) do not want true, objective reporting from your news organizations. What you want is cheer leading to bolster your “side.” Never mind that they are on the same “side” and that is “their” side which makes them against your side because “they” want to steal your money and your freedom.

      You write: “My question to you, Mr. Rolley, is: Why didn’t you complain about the front-page, factually incorrect, hit piece that The Washington Post conveniently ran, which characterized Romney as a gay-bashing bully, about the same time that Obama came out with his support of gay-marriage?” As Sam is my employee, I will answer: Because we are not part of Romney’s campaign and have no desire to be so.

      You–and most others who have commented–missed the point of this story: that Fox News produces propaganda pieces and attempts to pass them off as news stories. Yes, the rest of the MSM do this as well. We often call them on it.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

        Bob I usually agree with most you have to say but I find your comments here to be Ron Paul bias and loser mentality at best. Very disappointed.

      • GregS

        Bob, the first part of your response to my post is your opinion, and that’s fine with me. However, I strongly disagree with what you had to say in your last two paragraphs:

        In response to my question to Sam Rolley as to why he didn’t complain about The Washington Post front page hit piece on Romney, you responded: “…we are not part of Romney’s campaign and have no desire to be so.” I was NOT defending Romney here, and I did NOT expect you or Sam Rolley to defend or campaign for him either. The Washington Post blatently passed this off as a FRONT PAGE NEWS STORY, not to mention that it was factually inaccurate. Correct me if I’m wrong, Bob, but isn’t this what you are accusing Fox News of doing?

        This brings me to your last paragraph:

        You write: “You–and most others who have commented–missed the point of this story: that Fox News produces propaganda pieces and attempts to pass them off as news stories.” No, I don’t think we’ve missed the point at all. First of all, Fox and Friends is an opinion show with commentaries and interviews, as well as news segments, scattered throughout. While I agree that the Obama video showed only the bad points about Obama, I strongly disagree that this was being passed off as a “news story.” It was simply a commentary, NOT a “news story,” and at least it was factually accurate. That’s a far cry from the hit piece on Romney that was splattered over the FRONT PAGE of a MAJOR NEWSPAPER.

      • revnowwhilewecan

        Brad,
        I don’t believe Bob mentioned Ron Paul once in his response. All he did was point out that there is no difference in candidates which if any is an illusion at best so any “Paul loser mentality” inference is of your own doing. I think I would be safe in saying that Bob feels as if America has lost. Not just Ron Paul.

      • Vigilant

        Mr. Livingston says, ” Fox News produces propaganda pieces and attempts to pass them off as news stories. Yes, the rest of the MSM do this as well. We often call them on it.”

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but propaganda is based on lies. Can you point to ONE thing in that video that is factually incorrect? Perpetuating the left-right paradigm may be one thing, but until anything is disproven (most of which uses Obama’s own words), then it’s not propaganda, it’s the truth.

        Moreover, as pointed out above, Fox NEVER passed this off as a “news stor(y).” It was a comparison of Obama’s words with his actions/results on an entertainment show. Tell us what you are going to “call” Fox News on for essentially exposing the truth about Obama.

    • http://AOL Ellen

      If Fox behaves this way they are going to lose a lot of fans — starting with me. I think the program was right on track. Do we now have an Obama fan making decisions for Fox? If they want to keep the slogan that they are “fair and balanced” they should get rid of this creep

  • afdbghq

    It appears that the main purpose of the Main Stream Media today is to keep anything negative about Obummer off the air, twisting the facts in such a way as to make the facts appear favorable to Obummer, and tell untruths about Obummers opponents. When a network airs anything factual that shows the real Obummer (anything the MSM deems offensive) or exposes his hypocrisy the MSM immediately goes on the offensive with all their talking heads spouting the same rhetoric and lies to try and make people believe the other network is biases when in fact all they are doing is demonstrating their own liberal, left leaning bias.

    This video is stating facts that the government is providing. But because they are facts and the MSM cannot twist the facts then they play the bias/racist card to try and demonize their opponents.

    This video should be run on every network.

  • Maureen Haley

    It appears to me that more and more folks are waking up to Obama’s BS message of Hope and Change. Let’s just Hope there are enough of us right leaning folks to finally bring Change to the White House. With close to 50% of the folks in this country on some form of government assistance, we will have our hands full for change come Nov. The message is clear: Those of us to the right need to change the current out of control left leaning administration or else this country goes down the same liberal abyss as those countries on the other side of the pond.

      He said he would “create” more jobs, did he do that? NO< even if he did, he has brought in 4.5 MILLION legal immigrants in the 3 plus years he has been President, so IF he created ANY jobs, the immigrants gobble them up.
      He "swore" on the Bible to uphold the laws of America, has he deported the illegal aliens?
      They are breaking multiple laws, and 2 MILLION of those illegal aliens filed ITIN numbers on their income tax, claiming multiple children to the tune of costing us 4.2 BILLION in tax refunds for nieces and nephews in Mexico, don't believe me, go to numbersusa.com, and check for yourself!

      “Well, it IS an anti-Obama video, which is the point.”

      Karolyn, we need hear from you only ONE thing that is unfactual about that video. It is as difficult to run a pro-Hitler video as it is to laud the damage to this country done by Obama.

      • Vigilant

        Speaking of which, you continue to defend Obama while telling us you’ll vote for Ron Paul. Dr. Paul stands for everything Obama is opposed to.

      of Limbaugh as well.If Romney wanted these popele on his side, he would only have to start feeding their collective egos, which is an easy thing to do. But Romney doesn’t waste his time with them.

    don’t fall for all the negative news about the job numbers and the rise in unemployment, the repubs fall for this every election. barry and his cohorts in the media will run bad numbers for awhile then all of a sudden probably in sept. the news will start getting better, more jobs, the unemployment rate will fall below 8% and happy days are here again. the sheep will follow, those like me who don’t like romney will either not vote or cast one for the muslim, i will turn my back and vote for romney with mixed feelings, i do not want another four years of barry and moochella, just think what the vacation schedule will look like if he’s reelected and that is minor to the damage he wilkl do to this republic.

    Big deal. Aren’t MSNBC, CNN, Headline News, and the news divisions of the broadcast networks, overly long Obama re-election commercials?

    It’s almost comical that people continue to believe in this supposed “democracy”. If Ron Paul is not in office the people have lost again. There is no difference as Obomney is just the continuance of the status quo. The telling sign for me is the fixed polls. If Romney truly had the grass root support that the fake straw polls show then surly it wouldn’t be too hard for a couple of his people to hang out and pick up the delegates. The fact that it took so long to finally pry these delegates away from Paul is telling in itself. (BTW the delegates are not official yet as the MSM whores would like us to believe). Wake up people. What does it mean that Ron Paul can fill stadiums and Romney still has tables open at your local Subway, yet Romney is “ahead” so much in the polls? Really? Paul supporters are not only more passionate, they are more. I am not bitter. I truly am happy even tho Ron Paul will not get in because as I’ve stated, the elitist’s are on there last legs and the people know it.

      DEMOCRACY? Yes, we are a democracy. James Madison described a democracy…”DEMOCRACIES have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatable with personal scurityor the rights of property; and in general been as short in their lives as they been violent in their deaths…”

      Franklin went further to say… ” Democracies are two wolves and sheep voting on what’s for lunch…”

      America WAS a Constituional Republic. There is NO refernce to democracies in the founding documents other than what I’ve written. Our Constitutional Republic assimilated to a democracy with the 16th and 17th Amendments. What your hearing today is a result of Bush Sr.dumbing down of America.

    Obama leaves me totally awestruck, He’s so amazing! He can lie, lie, lie through his teeth and never – not once – bat his dead eyes.

      That was so funny, I forgot to laugh.

      There’s moral, immoral and amoral.

      Moral: God’s rules of action and interaction.
      Immoral: Knowing the rules but breaching them. This person can repent and get back on track with God.
      Amoral: Functioning completely outside God’s rules. Zero conscience.

      Amoral would best describe Obama. To him, the only lie is something he didn’t say. The Emperor Caligula described an amoral man. “If I am man, then my subjects must be something else. If they are men, then I must be something more”.

    As far as I’m concerned, Obama offers us communism, government ownership / government control, while Romney offers us Fascism, private ownership / government control. All the ads and speachs are nothing but propaganda. Looking at either one, their pasts tells me they will continue to take America over the same cliff.

    The American people, not you readers, are like herd of buffalo. A “DC” rider fires a gun and stampedes them to go blindly to wherever DC wants them to go. They react to the moment instead of educating themselve and act with reason.

    I know there’s not enough us enlightened to put Ron Paul in OUR White House but the momentum is there and building. Do what the media does, ignore Romney. Put time, effort and resources behind the momentum Ron Paul had the courage to start. Educate yourselves to the point you’ll realize you should be frightened of Obama and Romney for your sake and your childrens sake.

    As I study the bible concentrating on Matthew 24 &25 and John 3:16, I learn how today’s events are nothing but the prophecies coming together but they don’t have to. For the last 45 years I’ve been reading publications largely received through the Foundation of Economic Education and the Foundation for American Christian Education. The more I study, the more I realize ignorance was bliss.

    Again, forget the Communist and the Fascist. Want to know about Romney’s Mormon church? Read Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey. With those two running it will be the first time in history that neither candidate even hinted at their Christianity. Wonder what God thinks about that.

    “I’m astonished the leader of the free world would fail to protect the unborn from being aborted on the basis of sex.”—Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ)

    Recently Congress, along mostly partisan lines, voted to approve the genocide of unborn females—sort of a “get ‘em while they’re still in the womb” law. The United States has now officially joined China and India in encouraging the destruction of unborn females.

    The result of such genocide has left both China and India with populations that are lopsidedly skewed toward males. The US is now primed to follow their lead.

    Oddly enough, some of the biggest backers of female genocide are females, liberal females at least.

    Their self-defeating/self-hating attitudes are aligned with the core misogynistic policies of the radical left: population reduction (and the concomitant denigration of women’s natural role as mothers), polymorphous perversity (with its promotion of women as sex objects), and the adoration of Islam (with its attendant “honor killings,” rapes, disfigurements, and other means of keeping women “in their place”)—just to mention a few of the Left’s misogynistic policies.

    So I guess it should not come as any surprise that liberal women are applauding the recent decision to practice officially sanctioned female genocide. God forbid anything should come between them and their “right” to choose murder—the murder of the weakest among us; the voiceless and defenseless, the not yet born. The trademark narcissism of the Left is all too evident in the selfishness exhibited by these liberal
    women. It is all about them, and fxxk anybody else—born or unborn.

    He very well kept his promise – we have GOOD & ROCK-SOLID CHANGE!
    So now everybody knows what his change means.
    And another unexpected change – surprise, surprised – he is a GAY.
    But now WE have to make the CHANGE – transfer the CHARLATAN to the Guantamo.

    As was pointed out above, Fox and Friends is an ENTERTAINMENT / OPINION show, NOT a “news” show, and the video being discussed here is a COMMENTARY, NOT a “news” story, and because it wasn’t “news,” they can’t be accused of “portray[ing] the news.”
