    This just in: Fox propaganda network is pushing no investments in America, just let things go south and cut all regulations (like China). They say Nugent the helf-wit gun pusher is scheduled to attend the State of the Union address. The NRA should be proud….

  • Mark2

    @Tony “Rachels on fire!!!!”

    Really?! How is that possible when Rachel and Lawrence were off on Friday. Just thought you should know…rookie.

  • Andy88

    How long before Obama and Holder pay to have Fox news taken off television like they did with Glenn Beck?

  • usa8888

    I believe Glen beck was committed to an insane asylum…No? And he was forced to leave….

  • Ratboy

    @ Rachel AND Lawrence were off.

    So did their viewers switch over and watch FOX?? :shock:

  • Ratboy

    I believe Glen beck was committed to an insane asylum…No? And he was forced to leave
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO he went and started his own gig and is now making even MOOOOOOORE money than before!!

    Soooo Who is insane???????

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Wheneven there is breaking news, American tunes in CNN. Friday’s event was the outlaw LA policeman. Today (Monday) things will go back to normal.

  • Sam

    Another example of how dumb Fox News is :

  • Bobbyv

    I think Fox should be outlawed

  • Mark2

    @Ratboy “So did their viewers switch over and watch FOX??”

    I usually just turn to CNN when Rachel is out.

  • usa8888

    Rat–Beck and Slimebaugh are both insane asylum candidates and both attract suckers commensurate with their deficient mental capabilities.

  • Mark2

    @Sam “Another example of how dumb Fox News is…”

    That was a clasic clip. That lady had no clue what she was talking about. The sad part is that the Foxtards who were watching that program will take her at her word and even regurgitate that erroneous statement to other Foxtards.

    I was actually stationed in Germany for 3 years back in the 90s and the thing I hated most was all the freakin’ snow and lack of Sun. I guess that “business” lady never lived in Germany…lol.

  • tony

    @Mark2-Whether Rachels on or off her pants are on fire!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Sam: >>> Fox News’ Credibility At ‘Record Low <<< ROFLMAO!!

    And then, you post a link to the Huffington Post website for details. HuffPo is about as liberal as a website could be. There goes YOUR credibility.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Looks like we have a larger number of libtards today, lying their asses off with the same old cliches. Everything they claim about FNC is the opposite. That’s why it’s been the #1 cable news network for m ore than a decade.

    The numbers, both cume and 25-54, are strong on Fox. And, yet the weasels continually lie about falling audiences and how Fox is losing its credibility!

    And, as for the blind getting their facts from the blind, Fox-haters provide links to socialist Huff-Po to “back-up” their outlandish claims. Ohhhh, boy!

  • Sicilian Papa

    MSNBC the Titanic of cable news! Look at those key demos. Wow! What a beating. If TINGLES gets a thrill up his leg and no one feels it…does he really have a thrill!

  • Ratboy

    I guess our resident economic genius, ZERO x 4 missed the memo that Beck, Limbaugh, Maddow, Mathews, Schultz, and OReilly (but he gives his web proceeds away) not to mention all the others on the cable news (Stewart and Colbert too) are in it for the MOST money they can make!!!!! The bigger the contracts the better!!!!!!
    If not they would do it for free!!!

    Hence Beck WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Limbaugh WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ZERO x 4 loses!

  • 1nancy2

    Looks like CNN may awaken from its years of slumber and actually start giving other stations some compo..That’s Nancy Speak for ‘competition’. I used to enjoy CNN and am willing to tune in again, if………they make their shows interesting. Had 2 ft of snow and now freezing rain. Arghhhh! Where’s my cuppa coffee? BBL

  • tony

    The left using the Young Turks,Huffington Post,as a fact check what a joke.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Erin and Wolff bomb Tingles at 5 and 7!!! Time for Tingles to retire. The thrill is gone!
