Salon: Fox News is self-destructing: Islamophobia, Obama’s Reagan moment and Roger Ailes’s new humiliation

What happened to the extended victory lap?

Convinced that last year’s midterm losses for Democrats signaled the effective end of Barack Obama’s presidency and a resounding victory for all things conservative and Republican (“On Fox News, there were smiles all around“), just three weeks into the new year Fox News is left wondering what happened to the “lamest” of the lame duck presidents. The one Fox News was going to mock for two more years while trying to tarnish his legacy.

…Fox continues to wrestle with the unfolding crisis over the network’s demonstrably false and stunning claim that some parts of Europe, including in France as well as Britain’s second largest city, Birmingham, have become Islamic and are “no-go zones” for non-Muslims, including for British law enforcement.

    Salon world view: It’s a good thing my mouth was open or that bird would have shit right on my face.

    • Just a thought

      I was trying to think of a response to the article, but after reading your comment I realize I have nothing to top it. That is SO “Salon.”

        I got that line from Jackie ‘The Jokeman’ Martling, formerly of the Howard Stern Show.
        ‘What’s the difference between Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson?
        One was the first man to walk on the moon.
        The other one f***s little boys.’
        ‘Jewish girl says, ‘Dad, can I have fifty dollars?
        Dad says, ‘Forty dollars, what do you want thirty dollars for?’

    The left dwelling on someone else’s faux pas is unconscious satire of a high order, considering their total support year in year out for massive Globull Warming scams and making racism of low expectations excuses for muslim terrorist fanatics.

    story needs salt
    …..Salon article originated at Media Matters
    “President deeply tied to anti-Fox News group’s top donors
    “The information comes amid reports that White House staffers held regular meetings with Media Matters,
    “Also, numerous large grants were provided
    to a group called Leadership for Quality Education, which was run by
    John Ayers, the brother of Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.
    ..Tides Foundation,
    Center for American Progress, or CAP., Soros all in cahoots

        You’re not supposed to know. What you’re supposed to know is: Koch brothers!!! Koch brothers!!! Aaaargh!!!

        As time goes on, I have a harder and harder time not coming to the conclusion that true Marxist and Leftists are sinister and evil. I backslide now and then whenever I think they’re just sadly misguided.

        Salon is owned by David Talbot and has never actually made a profit, not a dime, ever, in its entire history. It is run solely as David’s vanity project to foment political hate speech from the far left and the far right.

    well, after visiting Salon I feel like my IQ has dropped.

      We live in a B-movie now with the most spectacularly insane plotline ever; too bizarre to ever be real but here it is.

      The most brazen lies are told, the king of lies is that Islam is a religion of peace.

    ‘Salon’ is for people who cannot handle strong drink in the ‘saloon’.

      Good one!
