    Remember after the election when the sore losers the Republicans bailed on Fox because they didn’t like reality of what they saw on TV. Many of the same sore losers bailed on this site or at least temporarily left because they were so upset.

    It’s the same scenario, democrats don’t like what they see so they tune out. It appears that Fox ain’t picking up new viewers. With the major news you would think fox would be up more significantly, and yet, they are not.

    Must be Angelina’s boobs are more important than the GOP boobs!

    White House Releases 100’s of Benghazi-related emails.

    Benghazi scandal continues to grow as the pressure gets to Obamababoon.

  • Mark

    Did Michelle Obama do a strip tease on MSDNC yesterday? YUCK…..

  • Jeff

    Ouch that’s gonna hurt the GOP right in their Issa!!

    The White House on Wednesday released what it calls a complete set of emails and documents totaling 100 pages showing the evolution of the administration’s talking points about the Benghazi attack.

    The emails, ranging from Sept. 14 to Sept. 15, indicated that CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell requested that references to Al Qaeda, an Al Qaeda linked terrorist group operating in Eastern Libya, and prior terrorist attacks in the area be scrubbed from public talking points—hours before State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland made a similar request, as previously reported.

    Mark2 you lie. Prove it.

    Why are you guys so upset at the Obama administration for this AP and IRS smokescreen?

    The Bush administration did the very same things. Did you guys complain about it then?

  • SteveB

    Fox News. Number one in Cable News for the past 13 years…….
    Man thats gonna leave a Mark……

  • Mark

    Purple Hayes has no brain
    Lately ratings don’t seem the same
    double digits and he don’t know why
    ‘scuse me while I fire that guy

    This is as clear an example of disparate treatment as the IRS’ hurdles selectively imposed upon groups with names ominously reflecting an interest in, say, a less intrusive or biased federal government,” said CEI fellow Chris Horner.

    Most green groups, including EarthJustice, The Waterkeeper Alliance, and Greenpeace, saw their fees waived. In fact, according to the report, 92 percent of requests from green groups were waived by the EPA.

    Right wing lunacy continues in here. Fox Fake continue to corner the market on the Lawrence Welk crowd…..

  • Ralph Hahn

    These scandals will continue to proceed, thanks to the Mainstream Media. When THEY turned on Obama, it was 1968 all over again when Walter Cronkite, CBS News Anchor, editorialized that the Vietnam war was at a stalemate and the best that we could hope for was a compromise. A couple of months later, LBJ told the American people that he was NOT going to run for his second full-term in the White House.

    If any of you happen to see Obama in person, yell out “President Nixon” as see if Obama turns around. lol

  • Jeff

    Ya know Speaker Boner has all these WH emails….and has for months. But he’s still trying to find them through all the Merlot stained paperwork on his desk.

  • usa8888

    This just in: inflation remains at very low levels….

  • Doug Z

    And here’s where things could become a headache for the Obama administration:

    CEI, on the other hand, had its requests denied 93 percent of the time. One request was denied because CEI failed to express its intent to disseminate the information to the general public. The rest were denied because the agency said CEI “failed to demonstrate that the release of the information requested significantly increases the public understanding of government operations or activities.”

    Similarly, requests from conservative groups Judicial Watch and National Center for Public Policy Research were approved half the time, and all requests from Franklin Center and the Institute for Energy Research were denied.

    “Their practice is to take care of their friends and impose ridiculous obstacles to deny problematic parties’ requests for information,” said Horner.

  • Jeff

    Obama to address the IRS issue in 30 mins.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @USahole: Where is the proof that you have so far failed to produce to back up your statement that 2/3rds of Fox News viewers are ‘elderly’?

    We’re still waiting.

  • usa8888

    Europe slips into another recession due to austerity measures from right wing kooks. this could adversely affect the US economy..

  • Mark

    Why does Eric Holder hate Muslims like Issa?

    More White House Bigotry.

  • usa8888

    Ralphie–you have got to learn math…

  • Ralph Hahn

    >>> Obama to address the IRS issue in 30 mins. <<<

    Why bother watching it? It'll only be more BS again.

  • Doug Z
