Fox Outed Themselves!

If you’ve seen me call Fox, aka Faux Noise, the official Republican Ministry of Propaganda once, you’ve seen me do so a hundred times.  For me to say so is one thing, but when they actually announce it on-air themselves, that is a delight to savor.

FoxSheepNow here’s one of the few good reasons to go on Fox News. Thomas Ricks, a member of the Center for a New American Security, author of several books on the military, and a Pulitzer Prize winner, went on Fox to talk about Benghazi. But his interview didn’t last long. Asked why Sen. John McCain seems to be backing off his threats to block U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice from being made secretary of state, Ricks said, "I think that Benghazi generally was hyped by this network especially and that now that the campaign is over, he’s backing off a little bit. They’re not going to stop Susan Rice from being secretary of state."…

…It’s fantastic anytime someone goes on Fox News to say that Fox News is operating as a wing of the Republican Party. It’s exponentially more fantastic when the person going on Fox News to say that Fox News is operating as a wing of the Republican Party is not some token liberal, but rather someone introduced by Fox as a distinguished expert on foreign policy and the military… [emphasis added]

Here’s the video:

Did you see that goose-steppers face when he realized Ricks was not going to parrot the Republican Party Line?  Classic!  He couldn’t end the interview fast enough.  How awful for them that the sheeple got to hear something true for a change, not the normal echo-chamber Pablum.

  1. Saw this— Laughed- loved it—– Delightful indeed –

  2. Irony: The fact that Faux News provides more humor than Comedy Central … and Comedy Central provides more News than Faux!
    And now Faux is claiming that Mr. Ricks has apologized to them.
    Of that I have no doubt … but this is what he actually said:
    "I'm sorry you were offended by someone actually telling the Gospel truth on Faux – but I'm sure you'll do everything possible to NEVER let THAT happen again."

  3. This is great!  I loved how Rick's said "You're welcome" at the end — just a tad cheeky, and deservedly so!  Faux Noise calls in an expert but fails to do their homework before the interview.  I've heard it said that before you ask a question in a court of law, you should know the answer.  Well, in the court of public opinion, Faux asked the question and then got taken down several notches with an answer they should have known about.

  4. This was hilarious! FAUX Noise actually does just hire idiots to spout their propaganda.
    Nobody did their homework about this guest.

  5. Oh bliss, Bliss, BLISS!!!!!  Thank you so much TC!
    (God bless Ricks for saying that it was 'partly because Fox was acting as a wing of the Republican Party'  – and I too loved that ending!).
