The Fox “News” Spin Cycle ► Episode 21
Bizarro is owned by DC Comics

It was another busy week and the research room of the Fox “News” Spin Cycle was working overtime with 333 tweets and status updates collected in the week since Episode 20 was published. Of course most of them were from Judge Nap. That’s why, beginning next week, we are giving Judge Andrew Napolitano his own series.

It was a week in which Fox “News” helped the GOP politicize the attack in Benghazi, Lybia, Vice President Joe Biden smacked down that snot-nosed kid Lyin’ Ryan, and several attempts were made by the Man Who Fell To Earth, before he finally succeeded on Sunday, which Fox “News” didn’t cover live at all.

After weeding out all the duplicate ideas, and non-political tweets, this is what we are left with, so, let’s get right to it.

It looked, for a moment, that Fox “News” was going to politicize this story. However, it disappeared without a trace.

Fox and Friends found a family to attack President Obama so they didn’t have to.

Judge Nap was promoting his own Libertarian-style column in which he attacked President Obama.

Ignoring all evidence to the contrary, and denials from the White House, Fox “News” spent a considerable amount
of time promoting this phony story that President Obama was going to bring the Gitmo detainees to Illinois.

This references the Presidential debate and, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, Fox “News” found people to trash President Obama.

While this was a segment to promote the Discovery Channel show, they found a way to trash President Obama.

One of Judge Nap’s Libertarian concerns.

This was just embarrassing. Guest Host Mike Jerrick acted like the biggest nerd in the Universe.

Then Jerrick had his sister on the show and they both came off as big nerds.

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

Fox “News” spent a while lot of time pretending the Jobs Report was cooked. However when previous Jobs Reports were bad for President Obama, Fox “News” was happy to promote those numbers.

No, not really. Breitbart is making it up and Fox “News” is repeating it.

And this happened too.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Detroit’s my home town and the police department is
lobbying for more officers. Therefore, they pumped out a scare story like this.

The GOP in the House has been doing everything in its power to politicize the Benghazi attack.

One of Judge Nap’s Libertarian causes. The government is bad. Lack of government is good.

Another of Judge Nap’s Libertarian causes.

And another . . .

. . . and another . . .

I was so proud. Early in the week Bully Boy Bolling proved I was getting under his very thin skin by pretending
he didn’t care. Therefore, I was only too happy to post about it on my blog. Then he proved he’s a typical Bully Boy
who can dish it out, but can’t take it. Consequently, I was only to happy to write about that on my blog as well.

Would it surprise you to find out that Rasmussen hated President Obama’s performance at the debate?

Peter Johnson, Jr., who comes off as everybody’s avuncular uncle is not just a President Obama Attack Dog, but is actually Roger Ailes personal lawyer and a Knight of Malta. Remember that when you see him expound over any religious issues.
Fox “News” Sunday has been sending out these “behind the scenes” photos lately. However, all they
reveal is that the network uses green screen fakery to pretend the guest is somewhere they are not.

Isn’t that cute? It’s made out of wood, just like the Fox “News” audience heads.

There’s so much wrong with this. Let’s start with a “school of journalism” getting pointers from the discreditable Fox “News.”

Fox and Friends Weekend has launched a facebook page. This is an example of what you get if you join.

Judge Nap seems to think it’s perfectly okay for churches to play politics.
I wonder if he would be equally okay with the churches being taxed.

One of the areas in which Judge Nap and I agree is that we are both anti-war. However,
was he as vocal about it when Dubya was lying the country into an illegal war?

Breitbart has a totally unsourced story, so Judge Nap feels it’s perfectly okay to pass it along.

Hoo boy!!!

Gee? A political party spinning a story? Nope, that’s never been done before.

Fox “News” is rather gleeful about this because it was the “Youth Vote” that helped push President Obama over the top in 2008.

Technical difficulties, my ass. God was making Her views known about the lies of Father Jonathan, the Fox “News” priest.

It turns out he wasn’t, but early in the week Fox “News” was positive that Veep Joe
Biden would be gaffe-tastic and Lyin’ Ryan would be in command of the facts.

This is so very typical of Fox “News.” A huge Republican voter registration scandal was uncovered in
several states, including Florida, so it deflects the issue with a small potatoes Democratic scandal.
Sadly this is true, but only because Dubya started 2 wars, one of them illegal. I
wonder if Judge Nap shows any concern for the soldiers once they come home.

This is typical of the hard-hitting news Fox and Friends weekend covers when they are forgetting to bash President Obama.

My favourite Bully Boy goes to Atlantic City a lot. Does he have a gambling problem?

There has been no decision. The Supreme Court has chosen to hear a case.  However, be afraid. Be very afraid.

Remember how just last week the Reich Wing was telling everybody the polls were biased and could
not be trusted. Suddenly when one favours its point of view, it’s announced from the rooftops.

Which one’s the pig? Too strong? See below for an example of Fox “News” calling someone a pig.

There are many people who skip the Pledge of Allegiance, or do not say the words “under God” when reciting it.
However, Fox “News” found a Democrat saying it, so it will use this as a cudgel to get its brain-dead listeners to hate her.

Yet, President Obama has vowed to wind down the war and remove the ‘Merkin presence in Afghanistan.

Does this mean that Judge Nap supports the Occupy Movement?

Where was Judge Nap when Dubya was passing the Patriot Act, participating
in the rendition program, and  and waterboarding suspects?

Judge Nap seems to think money spent on PBS is bad. Where was he when Wall
Street execs were getting giant bonuses paid with the government Bail Out Money?

This was a totally untruthful, hour-long trashing of President Obama’s environmental policies.

Friedman also said: Every friend of freedom must be as revolted as I am by the prospect of turning
the United States into an armed camp, by the vision of jails filled with casual drug users
and of an army of enforcers empowered to invade the liberty of citizens on slight evidence.

This was the Pay Per View debate special that, financially, was a fiasco. Many people who paid couldn’t access it and,
by the next morning, could be found for FREE all over the innertubes. Even Fox “News” was giving it away for FREE.

Two things, Loofah Lad: 1)> Paul Krugman is always sure of his facts, whether you happen to agree with him or
not; 2) Weren’t you one of those who claimed it was unseemly to call out Mendacious Mitt for his lying lies?

Small government = small guy gets crushed.

Here’s another area where I happen to agree with Judge Nap, and Milton Friedman, apparently too.

Fox “News” never promotes President Obama’s speeches in advance, nor does it
run the president’s speeches in full, like they did this one for Mendacious Mitt.

However, Fox “News” was happy to promote this speech from  Mendacious Mitt.

However, Fox “News” would die if people didn’t support lies. It’s all in how you look at it.

Yeah, because we all know that Jesus was one tough motherfucker who told the poor to take a flying leap at a rolling donut.

Don’t tell me, tell the Mendacious Mitt-Lyin’ Ryan campaign.
An unsupported allegation, from someone no one has ever heard from before,
published on World Nut Daily becomes a national story because Fox “News” says so.

Spare us the Faux Outrage, Bully Boy Bolling. He’s talking out of his ass again and he knows
it. He was a former commodities trader and knows what happens in one state would
not have the same results across the country. Furthermore, he also knows that the California
EPA regulations are the toughest in the country. Yet, he would choose cheap gas over clean air.

Fox “News” started pushing this story, which has been totally debunked as a bad translation by Google, right after it
was revealed that a Mendacious Mitt SuperPAC took $1,000,000.00 from a Canadian businessman. What a coincidence.

Oh, fer fuck’s sake!!! The Falafel King brings on a body language expert to decide who won the presidential debate.

President Obama gives lots of speeches. Fox “News” never gives them a kiss on the ass like this.

This is another example of how Fox “News” takes a bogus article and elevates it into national news.

One wonders why someone with a reputation for REAL journalism would sit down with a race-baiter like Scammity.

However, Judge Nap said NOTHING about Mendacious Mitt’s fundraising in Israel of the
$1,000,000.00 contributed to the Mendacious Mitt SuperPAC by a Caanadian businessman.

Judge Nap will pass along any Libertarian ideas, as long as it doesn’t conflict with his support of Mendacious Mitt.
Is this woman still an official Fox “News” contributor?

When Dubya was president, and gas prices were rising, Fox “News” kept saying that the president
can’t effect the price of gas. However, now that The Black Guy is in office, it’s a different story.

Can we get Fox “News” personalities to wear RFID chips? That would make it easier to keep track of the lies.

There is no low to which KKKarl Rove and Fox “News” will not go. BTW,
Turd Blossom, have you admitted your MASSIVE conflict of interest yet?

Another Libertarian cause close to Judge Nap’s heart.

Loofah Lad even uses his silly quiz to push propaganda.

Another Libertarian cause close to Judge Nap’s heart.

Another Libertarian cause close to Judge Nap’s heart.
Remember when the polls were all skewed and couldn’t be trusted? That was only last week, but Fox
“News” is hoping you’ll have forgotten by now. Knowing its brain-dead audience, that’s a sure bet.

“QUICK! How can we blame this on President Obama?”

Because we all know how “Fair and Balanced” Fred Thompson is.

Touting polls that are favourable to Mendacious Mitt and trashing polss as skewed
that favour President Obama is just standard operating procedure on Fox “News.”

Because we all know how “Fair and Balanced” John McCain is.

There is not one single provable occurance of President Obama stifling Free
Speech, but Judge Nap’s not going to let that stop him from pretending there is.

It didn’t happen until Sunday, when Fox “News” was too busy bashing President Obama to cover it live.

This is Loofah Lad pretending he won the debate, even though Bill Moyers called him on his inaccuracies.

One bad debate and Judge Nap hopes that it is all over for President Obama.
To that end he’s pushing a pearl-clutching article by Andrew Sullivan.

This is not what it seems, but all you needed to know that was that it originated
at The Daily Caller, fast becoming President Obama Conspiracy Central.

Another story that Fox “News” is happy to elevate to a national story because an aggrieved
father wasn’t happy with the letter sent by the president after the death of his brave son.

I wrote a blog post about this silly bullshit from Bully Boy Bolling as well, especially after I discovered he blocked me
on Twitter after I hurt his sensitive feelings. Like every bully I have ever met, he can dish it out, but he can’t take it.

More from the Austin Petersen Brain Trust. Judge Nap wants the nation to “fire Obama”
in favour of Mendacious Mitt, who everyone knows is athe lyingest liar to ever lie.

Even Judge Nap knows how stupid this is, but that doesn’t prevent him from passing it along to his brain-dead followers.

This is just a way for me to blow my own horn. Mid-week 3 of the Top 5
posts on my blog were from my popular “Chow Mein and Bolling” series.

Once again Fox “News” is touting polls favourable to Mendacious Mitt. Last week
polls that had President Obama in the lead were criticized as skewed an inaccurate.

This is the closest you’ll ever see KKKarl Rove come to admitting he controls nearly
$300,000,000.00 in two SuperPACs from Crossroads. Then he goes on Fox New and
touts his own attack ads, without mentioning his MASSIVE conflict of interest.

This was a very funny, and very effective, advert. That’s why Fox “Nes” spent so much time denigrating it.
“What’s next?!?! Suing General Motors for car crash?”

Suddenly Lara Logan is a favourite on Fox “News” because she said something bad about President Obama.

This oddsmaker is going to lose his shirt.

Now Judge Nap is promoting movies with a Libertarian point of view.

Who does?

The question wasn’t strange, but Fox “News” will go with Lyin’
Ryan’s condemnation to a question he wasn’t prepared to answer.

This is Judge Nap’s Biggest Lie of the Week™. This is an industry
that had been deregulated. More regulation may have saved lives.

Ayn Rand took Social Security and was against all religions. She’s a fraud, who Judge Nap is happy to promote.

The Republicans helped pass this bill, Judge Nap. You know that, right?

No, but that’s not what The Daily Caller, Conspiracy Central, wants you to believe.

Blowing my horn again. One day later 6 of the Top Ten posts on my blog were all about Fox “News.”

He’s still trying to sell the bullshit that fewer government regulations would have prevented these
deaths when this was an industry that was already deregulated. What’s worse, I’m sure he
already knows that, but since it doesn’t fit his Libertarian ideology, he’ll push a lie instead.

Empty slogans from the Libertarian point of view.

Of course, had AP published a funny picture of President Obama, that would have been fine with The Falafel King.

In which Bully Boy Bolling sent the wrong Twitter address out to his brain-dead fans and there were complaints galore.

Because we all know how “Fair and Balanced” the Toe-Sucking Whore-Monger is.

Fox “News” is doing everything in its power to trash Big Bird
because President Obama is doing what he can to save Big Bird.

Keith Ablow (who embarrassed himself at the end of the week, but I’ll get to that) seems to think
he’s perfectly normal for stocking survival food and guns for the upcoming Apocalypse.

Even though he has already admitted on another newtwork that he has no proof the Job Report was cooked.

Another Daily Caller bullshit story that Judge Nap hopes his brain-dead listeners will believe.

This was such a funny segment because Wretched Gretched went all ’80s Fan Girl to gush over Rick Springfield.

This was how Fox “News” tried to ‘play the ref’ before the Veep Debate even started.

Remember just last week when Fox “News” kept telling it’s brain-dead audience that it was unseemly
to call Mendacious Mitt a liar for all his lying lies? Yet, when Stephanie Cutter tells the truth, Fox
“News” calls her a liar and then claims she turned “beet red,” which was another Fox “News” lie.

TRANSLATION: Boss screws workers to avoid doing the right thing.

It turned out that Lyin’ Ryan would need all the help he could get at the debate the
following night when he came off looking like the lying schoolboy he really is.

It didn’t work the first time, so Scammity tried again. Anything to help Lyin’ Ryan.

If we could tax GOP lies, we could retire the debt.

How can you trust a man who wears a bad toupee? This will be like all the other times: Frank Luntz will have
another skewed focus group, which he will claim is representative, which will proceed to trash President Obama.

Every Fox “News” Sunday poll is bullshit. It starts with the preselected audience of brain-dead
Fox “News” viewers, who get their misinformation from Fox “News.” While they are careful (most
of the time) to say the polls are not scientific, they are not even non-scientifically credible.

“Hammers” is just another one of those action verbs Fox “News” likes to use when the truth is the opposite.
This is something I wish I had not lived to see. As my friend Carol said: I hope I die before I grow old.

Blowing my own horn again when later in the week all 5 of the Top Five posts on my blog were about Fox “News.”

Another Libertarian cause of Judge Nap’s. I have no problem letting Gary Johnson debate.
He is more likely to take away votes from Mendacious Mitt than President Obama.

Again Fox “News” is touting a debate when it is in Mendacious Mitt’s favour. If the polls start to swing
the other way, Fox “News” will go back to saying how they are skewed and should not be trusted.

This is teh Libertarian point of view. Not that I disagree totally, but a
Libertarian candidate doesn’t have a hope in Hell of being elected.

I repeat: A Libertarian candidate doesn’t have a hope in Hell of being elected.

No shit, Sherlock.

Another story based on faulty statistics that was debunked by week’s end.

Judge Nap promotes his own column in the Washington Times which was a endorsement of Gary Johnston.

He’s now old enough to wear long pants.

Former Veep trashed President Obama for the situation in Lybia, even though the policies of the
Dubya administration did so much to fuel anger in the region. Then he trashed Joe Biden’s performance
at the debate, even though he told someone on the floor of the Senate to “Go fuck yourself.”

No matter how hard they tried those Foxy Friends at Fox and Friends couldn’t get
General Hayden to sign on to their assessment of the attack in Benghazi.

It will if Fox “News” has anything to say about it.

More stumping for the Libertarian candidate by Judge Nap.

However, KKKarl Rove will describe everything EXCEPT his MASSIVE conflict
of interest in spending nearly $300,000,000.00 to influence the 2012 elections.

Some idiot on MSNBC wondered whether Mendacious Mitt died his hair. All the anchors
told him pretty much that he was an idiot for even mentioning it. However, The Falafel King
(who calls his show “The No Spin Zone,” remember?) tries to sell it to his brain-dead followers
as a MSNBC investigation, hoping they won’t click through and discover he’s lying to them . . .again.

Judge Nap wants his brain-dead followers to believe that the choice is binary.

Oh, wait! Isn’t it unseemly to be calling people liars Fox “News”???

My Latin is rusty, but so is Judge Nap’s.

While these seminars are FREE, I wonder what merchandise Bob Massi sells to make it worth his while.

Yet it turned out very differently.

Fox “News” started pushing this story as soon as it was learned that a Bain backed solar company was going bankrupt.

Thomas Jefferson also said, “Honesty is the first chapter of the book of
wisdom.” This one has been conveniently forgotten by Fox “News.”

Bully Boy goes all Bully Boy once again.

Only idiots wear a baseball cap indoors.

Who cares?

She’s only partially right. It’s an issue because the entire GOP, with the help of Fox “News,” is trying to turn it into
an election issue. Whatever happened to allowing sober investigations to play themselves out before blame is assessed?

This is Judge Nap’s mantra. Yet, he virtually contradicts himself
with his next message that came almost immediately afterwards.

It was a private company that screwed the Gulf of Mexico up for generations to
come and the government that held the company accountable. And then Judge Nap
contradicts himself again with his next message which came almost immediately afterwards.

You can’t have it ALL ways, Judge Nap. Choose a stance and stick with it.
The woman is clearly an idiot. And, if you watch the clip, it was the other way around: The
host confronted the woman’s idiocy and she couldn’t explain why she holds that opinion.

Does this mean Mendacious Mitt’s religion is now on the table?
Bully Boy Bolling is whistling past the graveyard. He knows the Vice President won the debate.

Judge Nap is whistling past the graveyard. He knows the Vice President won the debate.

Here’s the reaction from the phony bologna focus group.

Judge Nap is bitching about the Nobel Peace Prize given to the EU.

Fox “News” has spent a lot of time denigrating VPN Biden for his debate performance as an
excuse to avoid having to say Lyin’ Ryan lost the debate, even as he lied his way through it.

Oddly enough every tweet Fox “News” mentioned was anti-Vice President
Biden and not a single one was anti-Lyin’ Ryan. Well, whaddaya know?

Yet, the coward has blocked me on Twitter because he can dish it out, but he can’t take it.

CAPTION: God, if you’re listening, strike down this Lyin’ Ryan for his lying lies.

Sarah Palin is a punchline everywhere but Fox “News.”

This is Judge Nap’s second biggest Lie of the Week™. The Obama administration is not trying to prevent
ANY votes. The court challenge is to ensure that everybody has equal access to the voting booth.

Because VP Joe Biden won the debate, so he has to be denigrated.

Now Scammity is promoting the Ayn Rand movie too.

Shorter Judge Nap: He’s against it.

This is the Vice President who shot his friend in the face.

I’d love to follow you, Bully Boy, but you blocked me on Twitter.

Now Judge Nap (while cleverly quoting another so it doesn’t look
like he’s saying it) is calling the president a “political thug.”

If this was two Republicans, it would never see the light of day on Fox “News.”

More Bully Boy Bolling Bullshit™: There’s no indication that this person is a Socialist. Although
he worked for the Democratic campaign in ’08, it was for pay and there is no proof he voted
Democratic. What’s more is that Bully Boy is avoiding mentioning that several shots were fired at a
Democratic campaign office in the very same city. Why would he forget to mention something like that?

This is Mendacious Mitt and Lyin’ Ryan pandering to Ohio voters by claiming President Obama wants to kill Ohio jobs.

Why isn’t this guy in jail?

Does this mean, now that you’re married, you’ll no longer be sending out the morning cheesecake photo?
There are montages out there of all the Lyin’ Ryan lies, but you’ll never see that on Fox “News.”

Another Daily Caller story that is full of unsourced assertions. Not one person is “on the record.”

Fox “News” never mentions Bill Maher on the web site without the qualifier “pig.” NEVER!

Compared to all the softball interviews that Fox “News” gives to Mendacious Mitt and Lyin’ Ryan.

And that’s all the time we have, kidz. Another edition of The Fox “News” Spin Cycle has come and gone. Join us next week when we expose another whole series of Fox “News” lies.

And, remember, starting this week Judge Andrew Napolitano will be getting his own series. Feel free to make suggestions as to what to name it. I am leaning towards “Judge Not,” a terrific Bob Marley song, along with a Biblical injunction. However, I am open to suggestions.

Let’s end with a song.
