Andy Schlafly/Conservapedia have apparently now decided that Fox News is just too
damn darn Liberal.
The Fox News Channel is a United States cable and satellite news channel. It is a 24-hour general news service covering breaking news as well as political, business and entertainment news. The average age of its viewership is 65 years old, and even 70 years old for its O’Reilly Factor. Much of Fox News Channel is self-serving “happy talk,” telling its elderly audience what it wants to hear, or selling O’Reilly’s latest book.
The Fox News Channel heavily promotes RINO Backers — commentators who may appear to be conservative but side with RINOs just when it matters most. Examples include Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Karl Rove, and Rush Limbaugh, who savaged Todd Akin for making a pro-life statement pointing out that pregnancy from rape is rare due to feminine biology. The Fox News Channel gave Karl Rove a platform to raise money against pro-life Republican candidates.
Even center-right pundit Sarah Palin is too conservative for Fox News Channel, as when it canceled some of her interviews at a key political moment in August 2012, and then refused to renew her contract. And Fox News believes that the former guatemalan president Efraín Ríos Montt was a dictator.
Uhh Andy? I don’t totally disagree with everything you said here, the first paragraph was spot on really. After that things quickly got further and further from reality the more you typed. I realize that your perspective was probably skewed by your traumatic upbringing in the household of Phyllis Schlafly, yikes! But since when was Efraín Ríos Montt not a dictator?
José Efraín Ríos Montt seized power in a military coup and was later charged and convicted for genocide and crimes against humanity (a verdict later overturned by the Constitutional Court of Guatemala). It is estimated that over 17,000 Mayan indigenous people were killed under his “guns and beans” campaign in the space of only about 18 months.
I must assume that you are once again making up your own definitions for things rather than using those found within a dictionary. According to any conceivable interpretation of the accepted standard definition of a “Dictator” Efraín Ríos Montt certainly meets and even exceeds the necessary qualifications.
Still I do wish you luck in your never ending quest to limit the ranks of the Republican party to only the most fervent of the true believers. Frankly though I have a hard time understanding how the GOP is going to win any further elections once the party is reduced to just your mother and you. :p
