In our last episode of Meet the Foxers, we were exposed to the self-defecation of, no, not Gretchen Carlson again, but another member of the ClusterFox team, Roger Ailes, as he zinged President Obama.
Today's installment brings a lovely array of attacks on The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and NPR, because, after all, in Ailes' eyes, they're apparently right up there with the president of the United States:
- "He loves polarization. He depends on it. If liberals and conservatives are all getting along, how good would that show be? It'd be a bomb." (ClusterFox, on the other hand, is fair and balanced.)
- He called Jon Stewart "crazy." (And Glenn Beck is sane.)
- "He hates conservative views. He hates conservative thoughts. He hates conservative verbiage. He hates conservatives." (I guess all that public on-air John McCain nuzzling didn't count. Oh, and Bill O'Reilly's gotten a few kisses blown at him, as have others I dare not name... because McCain would get jealous if he knew Jon cheated on him, and we all know what a hot temper McHotHead has.)
- Re: The Rally to Restore Sanity: "Don't give me a social speech on the steps of the Washington Monument. Don't lapse into non-comedy." (How impertinent of a satirist to try to make a serious point. And yet, ClusterFox is clearly a comedy channel, yet tries to make serious points all the time.)
But wait! There's more! That's not the end of Episode 2, not by a long shot. Mr. Aile-ment saved some ammo for America's Public Enemy #1, NPR:
- "They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude." (Project much?)
- "They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don't want any other point of view. They don't even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda. They are basically Air America with government funding to keep them alive." (Yes, Roger, NPR and Hitler are interchangeable. Why, just the other day, I was driving along, minding my own business, when I saw NPR employees forcing Republican women and children into gas chambers. No wonder Aile-ment is the chairman of a "news" organization. His flair for objectivity is uncanny!)
And that concludes today's episode of Meet the Foxers.
