Defending the indefensible: Iraq

Great exchange on Bill Maher's show about American politics and warfare. Man, man, Tony Snow is so full of BS, it's hard to know where to begin. How about here: a wise man once said 'it's better to be roughly right than exactly wrong". Well then, why were all Bush's backseat generals on tv claiming the victory would be swift, that they'd be greeted as liberators, that they knew where the Iraqi WMD's were, and so on and so on. Tony Snow is a disgrace to journalism, I know people who haven't read a single book in their entire lives and could still do a better job than Tony. We really need to publicly execute the Bushy Bunch as it's clearly too late for them to grow a conscience or a rational brain.


They're baaaaaack, solo-style!

It's the return of Jon Stewart's Daily Show and Stephen Colbert's Colbert Report!! Beware politicians and economists, the critics are in full force again, even without writers. Be good now.


The evil behind mass media

Pox on all their houses! With players like these, blogging will be gr8 in '08!


Vladimir Putin is the devil

Wow, somebody call the senile police. Bill Cunningham has lost his mind. Hannity doesn't seem to notice.... Great journalism, Fox.


Idiot of the week: Sean Hannity (Fox Noise)

People people, if you were ever looking for a fool, I give you... Sean Hannity. Let's run down 10 minutes of "Hannity and Colmes"-airtime and point out the total BS and inconsistencies this idiot brings out.

Grodin: ...don't say a Hollywood veteran is going to talk about the presidential election. Who said that? I 'm not going to talk about the election, that's for ratings.
Hannity: No that's to defeat Hillary ... She's terrible for this country ... any of the republicans are infinitely better than her higher taxes, her weakness on terror, her retreat from Iraq, her open borders and her destruction of the healthcare system.
[1) any republican?! 2) infinitely?! 3) Hillary, weak?! 4) the borders are already open 5) the healthcare system is already broke. Please do continue, Sean!]

Hannity:...it's not about ratings, it's about what we care about. You're insinuating it's about ratings
[Major BS alert!]

Hannity: ...left-wing extremist Charles Grodin...
Grodin: right-wing fascist Sean Hannity
Hannity:...that is so insulting!
Grodin:..if I had asked you for a mistake for my book, what would it be?
Hannity: ...I'm Christian, I think you should admit your mistakes, humble yourself...
Grodin:...name one
Hannity:..I was in trouble all the time as a kid... until I was...21...
[Major BS alert again]

Grodin: Were you indicted?
Hannity: Never... arrested? No.
Grodin: One!
[Hannity cannot admit one, he's definitely a bad Christian by this point]

Grodin: I'll tell you the lesson I learned. That even though sometimes you think you're right, like you always do...
Hannity: I do not!
[Hahahaha! He just did! Again!]

Grodin: Would you aknowledge there's too much bomb-throwing from right and left?
Hannity: Yeah, from Nancy Pelosi, (inaudible) and Harry Reid and John Murtha and John Kerry
Grodin: How about all the right-wing people like Sean Hannity?
Hannity: No, show me one example
[Hannity is so full of BS I can almost smell it]

Hannity: Give me one example where I've been a bomb-thrower
Grodin: Look at the five names you just mentioned as bomb-throwers, they're all democrats
[Forget about that, just take a look at the five minutes of airtime you just filled with your empty head and hateful rhetoric, Sean!]


The Nobel Pedophile Price for child molestation

This one is just too bad to let it pass. Michael Savage deserves his place with the stupid people. He just claimed that 90% of the people on the Nobel Committee are into child pornography and molestation. "According to the latest scientific research", he dared add!! Not only that, he stumbled over a catch phrase as well. What Savage wanted to say is "capo di tutti capi", but even after 4 tries, he still couldn't make it. Better luck next time, moron. How do people like this wind up with their own talkshow on the radio, you wonder? Well, euhm, beats me!


Some 'think' Jesus came before Aristotle, Socrates and Plato...

The worst persons in the world, caught on air. Apparently there's even people stupid enough to believe that Jesus Christ predates the Greek civilisation and that nothing, nobody predates the Christians.... Look who got left behind in first grade. If these people don't know the first thing of history, why on earth are they discussing it... on TV!? Ofcourse they're not the only ones...


Al Gore is hostile to human civilization

Tucker Carlson, living it up, everybody. He'll be mediahistory soon but until then we can be sure to find the looniest of claims whenever he's on the air.

"I think Gore would have been a disaster as president. We'd have been living in the Dark Ages. I think he's fundamentally hostile to human civilization. And a phony."
SIMON: Would we be fighting a war in Iraq?
CARLSON: We would likely be not, not be fighting a war in Iraq. We'd also be living in yurts in the dark, and that would be maybe almost as bad.

Hysterical Tucker! If only it were true...


Dean Opperman sticks it to the pseudo-journalists

"While I welcome your sudden awakening to journalistic integrity, I can't help but remember your ceaseless cheerleading for Bush's war and your complete unwillingness to ask him anything in the way of tough questions for years on end. When it comes to dereliction of duty, you guys made the Exxon Valdez look like a fender bender."

Presenting: Lapdogs of the corporate press

Fox news at it again: "Dems want failure"

John Gibson is the idiot-at-work. The democrats vow more failure... Exactly what's to win again John? Simply less attacks?! I thought y'all were gonna win the hearts and minds of the Middle East? I thought y'all were gonna spread democracy the same way y'all spread false rumours like 'Saddam has WMD' or 'tax cuts for the wealthy are good'?! You are the failure, Gibson.


The people rise up against the FCC and media consolidation

These are clearly not the same Americans that have re-elected Bush in '04. Where did they get these people? Have the Chinese been secretly training the Americans to rise up against the political and commercial powers that be? This video gave me back my trust in mankind, but then again, this handful of people may also be the last resort of sanity in the nation.


The Daily Show experts, preporting the news

I give you "the McLAUGHlin Group"


Fox Noise Channel: unfair and unbalanced

Welcome to American News, welcome to Propagandistan.


Robertson in a nutshell

Robertson: "2005 will be a good year, the terrorist threat will diminish"

Meet Chris Matthews: flip-flopper to the bone and the personification of 'go with the flow'

Chris Matthews in his final column in the San Francisco Chronicle entitled 'Hail and farewell' on sunday, September 1, 2002:
So I'll say it: I hate this war that's coming in Iraq. I don't think we'll be proud of it. Oppose this war because it will create a millennium of hatred and the suicidal terrorism that comes with it. You talk about Bush trying to avenge his father. What about the tens of millions of Arab sons who will want to finish a fight we start next spring in Baghdad?

Chris Matthews on Hardball on the 1th of May 2003, right after the 'Mission Accomplished':
We're proud of our president. Americans love having a guy as president, a guy who has a little swagger, who's physical....Women like a guy who's president. Check it out. The women like this war. I think we like having a hero as our president.

Chris Matthews on Hardball the 16th of December, 2005:
Well, it's probably the greatest gamble since Roosevelt backed Britain before World War II. The president deserves credit, if this gamble comes through -- and it's not clear yet. If his gamble that he can create a democracy in the middle of the Arab world and he does it, he belongs on Mount Rushmore.
