No, Greg. The biggest myth is that Fox reports news.

    Rachel Maddow Beating Hannity: Are People Finally Catching on to FOX News' BS? | Alternet →

    Particularly impressive were the results of the two powerhouse programs on the MSNBC lineup: Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell. Maddow won seven of the eight days against her Fox competition, Sean Hannity. For the 8-day run Maddow beat Hannity by 18% and her 544k average was second to only Bill O’Reilly in all of cable news. O’Donnell won all eight days against Fox’s Greta Van Susteren. His margin of victory over Van Susteren was 17% for the eight days.

    This can no longer be considered a temporary blip on the ratings scales. With two weeks having elapsed, the MSNBC programs are showing steady strength against competition that was once thought insurmountable. Only Bill O’Reilly is holding his top position for Fox in primetime. This may indicate that Sean Hannity is wearing thin with viewers who are likely disappointed with his overly confident (and harebrained) assurances that all the polls were wrong and that Mitt Romney would emerge victorious.

    Fox News pushes conspiracy theory that Joe Biden was drunk during the debate | Examiner →

    reallyfoxnews:

    In their attempt to turn attention away from the debate, Fox News has decided to create their own conspiracy theory. On a special edition of the Sean Hannity Show, Sean Hanntiy questioned whether the vice-president was drinking bourbon before the debate.

    Hannity: I noticed that you guys were giving away bourbon to people over here.

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY): It’s the home of bourbon.

    Hannity: I wonder if Joe had some before the debate.

    Taking to their Twitter accounts, multiple Fox News hosts continued the “Biden is drunk” theme.

    @ericbolling - MrVO is interrupting and laughing.. Is he drinking? #AA

    @greggutfeld - Biden is the drunk at the bar, Martha is the unhappy bartender, and Ryan is the unfortunate salesman caught in the middle.

    Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee furthered the conspiracy during a morning show on Fox News.

    “(Biden) came across like a guy you meet at a cocktail party or some political event, an obnoxious drunk who’s loud and boisterous and interrupts every conversation… He just is the kind of guy you want to get away from as quickly as you can and go find someone else to talk to. It was just boorish behavior for the first half”

After Obama’s Election, Fox News Declared Itself “The Voice Of The Opposition”
Roger Ailes On Obama’s Election: “I See This As The Alamo.” A March 6, 2009, Los Angeles Timesarticle reported that, in a meeting with former Fox News host Glenn Beck, Fox News CEO Roger Ailes declared that his network would challenge the Obama administration, reportedly saying “I see this as the Alamo.” FromThe Los Angeles Times:

Before Glenn Beck started his new show on Fox News in January, he sat down with Roger Ailes, the network’s chief executive, to make sure they were on the same page.
“I wanted to meet with Roger and tell him, ‘You may not want to put me on the air. I believe we are in dire trouble, and I will never shut up,’ ” said the conservative radio host.
But before Beck could say anything, Ailes shared a message of his own: The country faced tough times, he said, and Fox News was one of the only news outlets willing to challenge the new administration.
“I see this as the Alamo,” Ailes said, according to Beck. “If I just had somebody who was willing to sit on the other side of the camera until the last shot is fired, we’d be fine.” [Los Angeles Times, 3/6/09]

    Here’s an example of the “reframing” effort, the script — currently being undertaken by panicky Fox “news” and Team Romney — to spin Mitt Romney’s own words into something a bit more palatable to the “47 percent” that Romney dismissed as a scavenging horde of grifters, eaters, and shiftless bums, and whose existence sucks the lifeblood from the upstanding and heroic entrepreneurial class:

    He was obviously inarticulate in making this point. The point we’re trying to make here is, under the Obama economy, government dependency is up and economic stagnation is up. And what we’re trying to achieve is trying to get people off government dependency and back to a job that pays well, that gets them on the path to prosperity.” — Paul Ryan

    No. Sorry, Paul Ryan. Mitt didn’t mean to say that at all.
