Update: Fox News Makes Racist Comment Thread Disappear

What right wing racism?
Wingnuts • Views: 43,802

I’m not surprised to see this; Fox News has now made the entire comment thread for their Whitney Houston article disappear: Singer Whitney Houston Dies at 48 | Fox News.

It was probably easier to just trash the whole thing than try to moderate 5000 comments full of racial slurs. I’ll bet somebody at Fox News is pretty pissed off at me today.

Oh, you know it; if they had any sense of shame, the Fox News/Nation muckety-mucks wouldn't let their comment threads get like that to begin with, but they don't.

All of the heat they're catching is well deserved.

They seem to be either under the impression that the only people reading the comments are far-right nutjobs anyway or that a easily-fooled word filter is all one needs to moderate such bile.

They underestimate the creativity of a far-right nutjob faced with a word filter.

(They should get the word filter they have at Cracked.com. That one is amazing. It edits words like "Japanese", "despicable", "denigrate"...the word filter at Cracked knows it is up against the readers of Cracked, and it will NOT let any profanity or racial slurs through.)

Anil Dash: If your website's full of assholes, it's your fault

This one stands out:

You should have community policies about what is and isn't acceptable behavior. Your community policy should be short, written in plain language, easily accessible, and phrased in flexible terms so people aren't trying to nitpick the details of the rules when they break them. And then back them up with significant consequences when people break them: Either temporary or permanent bans on participation.

It's not enough just to flush the crap occasionally and pretend it wasn't there.

Honestly, applying a word filter to a place like Fox News would be like trying to put a word filter on SomethingAwful. Someone, somewhere, will find a way around it, and then the floodgates will open. There is just no way to hold such a tide of bile back.

How about a singing tribute to the Soldier that lost his/her life to defend our freedoms instead?

A lot of people will say that with a community as large as Fox News, there's just no way to implement such a policy. Baloney. This is why you hand-pick moderating teams and monitor their moderation efforts. You can then discipline any moderators who are out of line, and replace them with moderators who are more capable of enforcing the rules.

All my life there has been this underside to the American society - the subset of Americans who really are full of hate and bigotry. In the old days newspaper editors could just ignore their letters. Politicians would shun them (in public anyway), save for the rare atavistic fringe politician. The bigots would rely on newsletters and local meetings.

Today, empowered by modern communications technology, bigots everywhere can declare their ugliness for all to see, in beautifully formated HTML.

The question is whether Fox wants to alienate part of their customer base, which they have worked hard (from dog whistling to faux reporting) to accumulate.

Any website owner concerned about long term integrity would just start banning users, ip addresses, maybe even whole address blocks if necessary.

Fox Pundit Says Women In The Military Should ‘Expect’ To Be Raped

TROTTA: But while all of this is going on, just a few weeks ago, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta commented on a new Pentagon report on sexual abuse in the military. I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect? These people are in close contact, the whole airing of this issue has never been done by Congress, it’s strictly been a question of pressure from the feminist.

And the feminists have also directed them, really, to spend a lot of money. They have sexual counselors all over the place, victims’ advocates, sexual response coordinators. … So, you have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much.

Finally, blogging explained:


Vodka delivers shot of creativity

Getting a buzz from booze may boost creativity. Men who drank themselves tipsy solved more problems demanding verbal resourcefulness in less time than sober guys did, a new study finds.

Sudden, intuitive insights into tricky word-association problems occurred more frequently when men were intoxicated but not legally drunk, say psychology graduate student Andrew Jarosz of the University of Illinois at Chicago and his colleagues. Sober men took a more deliberative approach to this task.

A moderate alcoholic high loosens a person’s focus of attention, making it easier to find connections among remotely related ideas, the scientists propose online January 28 in Consciousness and Cognition.

I'm trying to remember exactly what the topic was, but Fox news did this at least once in the past to another story's comment section that had gone unmanagably racist. We were monitoring it here and it was getting some further attention on other sites, and then a couple thousand comments went poof. I'm thinking it was maybe something about the First Lady.

Also, there's a grave problem with that report. Only journalists with high credibility can easily rely on anonymous sources.

It's amazing how spectacularly hypocritical they are.

Fox has Brent Bozell on almost daily, who runs the Media Research Center (which is kind of Media Matters' mirror universe twin) which is also a 10+ million dollar a year outfit, though it focuses on "liberal media bias". They also constantly have on folks from Heritage, AEI, American's for Prosperity, etc -- all of which subsist on wingnut welfare from RW billionaires (but, but Soros! ///). Then they're whining about American Bridge 21st Century, which has raised only a tiny fraction of the money that Karl Rove's superpac has, and they give Rove a daily platform on their channel, paying him to pretend he's some sort of objective political analyst instead of one of the foremost operators on the front-lines of current and upcoming elections.

Napolitano loses show, but stays on with Fox.

Napolitano will remain with the network in other capacities, although without a show of his own and a dedicated time slot, it is almost certain we will see less of him from now on. I'd also speculate he has a non-disparagement clause in his contract with FOX, which would explain why he has been such a saint and gentleman about all this, when most people would be going for the network's jugular. He even posted to his official Facebook, asking his fans to tone down the "email traffic to Fox" regarding his show cancellation.

Now, can I say with 100% certainty that he was canceled because he shined a constant, bright, undeniable light on "uncomfortable" issues such as Congressional corruption, increasingly powerful Occupy protests, economic unrest, the NDAA, and the dangerous rollback of our civil rights since 9/11?

No, of course not -- I don't work at FOX, and I have no idea what went through their minds when they pulled the plug on Freedom Watch.
But the fact remains: there is now not even ONE anchor in the United States, on a major network, routinely covering the NDAA's imprisonment without trial provisions and the Obama administration's never-ending attack on American citizens' core civil liberties.

Seems to be part of an overall shakeup of the Fox Business lineup.

the bill is so ineptly drafted that it could intrude deeply into teacher’s private lives. SB 1467 doesn’t just ban public speech or conduct, but all speech and conduct. That means public school teachers in Arizona will be forbidden from engaging in any FCC-regulated activities no matter where they are. That means no sex, no going to the bathroom, no cursing and no showering. Ever.

Interesting, I missed this one last week - wacko 9/11 Truther Judge Andrew Napolitano has been fired from Fox: Dangerous Minds | Is This Epic Rant What Got Judge Napolitano Fired From Fox?

What a sad attempt at Socratic dialogue.

I didn't watch the video of Ellen's message to the "Million Moms" on her show on Fox News' site...can't remember where I watched it, but a large number of the comments were pretty nauseating. One that really jumped out at me...the guy was saying he hated gays because "the act" (you know, that "unnatural" act they are so obsessed about) was so disgusting to him.

OK, ummmm...so how does this reason for hating gays apply to lesbians?

Just to clarify, the "they" referred to in the parentheses below is the homophobes.
