Fox News Comments was created to expose the audience that Fox News caters to. Every comment is posted as it was shown on foxnews.com or thefoxnation.com. Some of what you read will make you laugh, some of what you read will shock you. Fear-mongering and hate-mongering have proven a very successful ratings-grabber for Fox News, but it’s generated about as much hate and fear as can be expected. So stick around – you might learn a slur that should have been dead decades ago!

C&T:  I can’t say I’m shocked at these comments…ya gotta consider the source, FOX News seems to cater to righteous inbred idiots.  It’s kind of scary, though, that there are so many nut jobs out there so filled with rage and hate.

For the second year in a row, The Daily Beast crunches the numbers for America’s 55 largest cities, ranking their brainpower from first-to-worst. How does your hometown fare?

C&T: I’ve lived here for 15 years and I can tell ya the level of STUPID around here astounds and amazes me daily.  Some may counter that the average IQ dropped significantly when I moved here.  Could be.  But the stupid here reflects not so much lack of education as lack of common sense. As in NONE.  Nada.  Zip.

Joy Behar repeatedly called Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle a “bitch” on “The View” Tuesday, and said that she is “going to hell.”

Behar’s comments came during a discussion of an ad that Angle released earlier this month. The ad, which focused on immigration and contrasted smiling white children with scowling Latinos, was called “the most overtly racist” ad of the entire campaign by Rachel Maddow on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.” The “View” co-hosts were no less outraged by it, with Elisabeth Hasselbeck criticizing Angle for using children to stoke fear.

But it was Behar who really let loose on Angle.

C&T:  Good for Joy!  She, along with Rachael Maddow, Whoopee Goldberg, Bill Maher and Jon Stewart are amoing my heros who say exactly what they think.  Thx, julieg for the link!

There’s no getting around the fact that politics are fueled by fear, from smear ads convincing us the other candidate is going to raise our taxes and take away our guns, to people trying to tell you that the President wasn’t born here and is going to kill our grandmas. That’s why we’re not surprised that Stephen Colbert wanted to hold a March To Keep Fear Alive (Now part of Jon Stewart‘s Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear#. Colbert just wants to continue the time-honored tradition of scaring people into making important decisions. So, we chose 14 people #and animals/things) who keep fear alive in politics as well as our daily lives. We gave them our own rating from 1-10 Colbert heads (of course), but tell us what you think by voting for the scariest one!

The Funniest Store Placement Fails & Wins

 Stores do the best they can to stock aisles with similar products, making it easier to compare brands and find the things you want. But sometimes, whether for marketing purposes or just by accident, things are placed next to each other on a shelf in a seemingly ridiculous way. Why would you place condoms next to diapers? As a passive aggressive reminder?

Is Palin bashing a pre-requisite for an appearance on the new Parker-Spitzer show? Aaron Sorkin referred to Palin as an ‘idiot’ and ‘jaw-droppingly incompetent’ on Monday’s show. And now, Tuesday’s show featured Oliver Stone calling Palin a ‘moron’.

Mexico Killed In Drug Deal

MEXICO CITY—In the latest incident of drug-related violence to hit the country, all 111 million citizens of Mexico were killed Monday during a shoot-out between rival drug cartels.

According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the violence was sparked by a botched drug deal involving an estimated 20 kilograms of marijuana, a dispute that led low-level members of the Sinaloa cartel to open fire on local dealers in Culiacán. Within seconds, the gunfire had spread to Chihuahua, Michoacán, Yucatán, and, minutes later, the other 27 Mexican states, leaving every person in Mexico dead.

The right-wing’s saviour has spoken…but WHY THE FUCK do they believe him? He can’t even remember his own lies.  WTF!

Glenn Beck this weekend: “I know that many in this country think that I’m a fear-monger. It is not a . . it is not a label that, I think, applies . .”

Glenn Beck earlier: “I think what’s coming is horrific. I don’t even want to speak it out loud . .”

“I can tell you there will be rivers of blood . .”

“Are we headed for a one-world government . .”

“A global economic holocaust is coming . .”

“It’s September the Eleventh all over again, except we didn’t have the collapsing buildings . .”

“If you haven’t done your homework yet — what is it going to take? I urge you to catch up on it, and catch up on it fast. It’s kind of important, for a couple of reasons. One . . uhh . . the whole end of time thing . .”

Whatta hypocritical, full of shit, forked-tongued fuckin’ asshole.

C&T: Jon Stewart and Bill Maher are my heroes.  Jon Stewart does it again and shows how FOX News is a bullshit factory…asking if FOX news is “evil” or “stupid”.  Yes and yes.

Jon Stewart continued his coverage of the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ debate last night, focusing on Fox News’ incongruities harder than he ever has. In a segment called “The Parent Company Trap,” Stewart shared with his viewers how Fox News’ plan to “follow the money” from mosque builder Imam Rauf to terrorists will be a tricky one because it leads right back to Fox News.

Stewart showed clips from his show last week, in which he mocked Fox News for playing a dangerous game of association based on speculation, and wherein Fox continued to mention a nameless man with ties to Imam Rauf through the “Kingdom Foundation.” It turns out the man they are referring to but never name is Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, one of the biggest shareholders of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

THE Haggler, as regular readers know, typically works on a very grand and ambitious scale, swashbuckling for consumer justice with just his bare hands and a telephone. The results often dazzle and amaze. But much of what is vexing about life as an American consumer today are teeny-weeny irritations — minor outrages that add up to a low background hum of bother.

In this episode, we present the Haggler’s own quick tour of what you might call pet peeves, though that term is slightly belittling. Let’s just call them peeves. These are changes that the Haggler will impose by fiat the day after he is named Global Consumer Czar of Everything Consumer-Related, which is definitely going to happen someday.
