Blonde Moments, Fox News Channel Style

It’s the weekend, which gives me license to relax and be un-serious about everything. In that spirit, and with the proviso that you understand I’m perfectly OK with other hair colors, please allow me to be a blondist, and a keen observer of the differences between the two (and only two) sexes  —  or what […]

Fox News Channel won the VP debate viewership race, beating CNN, MSNBC combined.

As they did at the first presidential debate, Fox News Channel beat all of the other cable news networks combined, in VP debate viewership. Over 10 million people watched Fox News Channel instead of the others. FNC also beat all of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC). This is important, why? Because the others are […]

Fox News Channel strengthens against faultering CNN, MSNBC

CNN’s ratings are tanking again, while further left MSNBC also dipped, last month. The number one rated Fox News Channel, however, held its own and even rose a little. CNN Has Lowest-Rated Month In More Than A Decade In April It’s no April Fool’s joke — last month CNN delivered its lowest-rated month in total […]

Ma, Ma, Ma, My Solyndra

The community where I live is upgrading our Comcast cable services—which means that I won’t have Fox News on the third floor of my hacienda until they get out to my place and give me whatever fancy box I need. I had no idea how addicted I had become to Fox. I now know what […]

Viewer asks me why I watch Fox News Channel. I answer. He tootles off.

Over at my old haunt’s YouTube channel, a liberal asks in a channel comment: “Why do you watch Fox News, the republican channel?”  That’s his comment.  Rich. I presume he asks because most of my videos are clips of Fox News Channel items I captured because I thought they were important. One of them has […]

Hypocrisy and News of the World

It’s been interesting to read various people who know little of Britain try to explain Britain and British culture to Canada. They’re trying to do this, of course, because of the hacking scandal, the demise of the News of the World, and the threats posed to media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his newspaper and television […]

Media Mogul Charged with First Degree Murdoch

In December 1996, a Florida couple, John and Alice Martin, who sounded suspiciously like union goons, claimed to have inadvertently tapped into a phone conversation between then House Speaker Newt Gingrich and House Republican leadership. According to these Democratic and union activists, they were just driving around with a police scanner in their car, picked […]

A Little Mock on O’Reilly

State-run CBC’s state-funded comedy show Little Mosque on the Prairie was raised on Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly Factor Wednesday night by Bill O’Reilly, along with correspondent Juliet Huddy — who said the show did a nice enough job satirizing the situation. I mean the situation in which there is a mosque on the prairie — […]

Fox News Channel dominates State of Union coverage and analysis

It’s not surprising that even the lefties who chose their MSNBC over their CNN to watch the actual address (during which time their so-called analysts’ mouths are mercifully zipped), switched away from that channel as soon as the analysis began, post-speech.  And that’s the only one of the three cable news channels that did lose […]

CABLE NEWS MEDIA: Fox’s Hannity beats new Piers Morgan/Oprah, MSNBC Maddow/Michael Moore

Even though it was the premier show, and the interview with superstar Oprah had been hyped beyond even the hyperventilating media’s recent accusations or insinuations that Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity (…) was to blame for the Arizona madman shooting, CNN’s new replacement for Larry King, Piers Morgan, failed to beat the […]

How to call someone an a**hole with aplomb; and other newsquips for January 7, 2011

In an otherwise pretty slow news week, if we read between the lines, we find some gems. And this is the part where I post newsquips. 1. “This guy sounds like a bit of an ‘a-bomb’ himself.” — Megyn Kelly, Fox News Channel (Reason #2 why I love Fox News Channel) Heh. “A-bomb”. That’s funny. […]

YouTube non-fan comments: “Are you proud to be Canadian, or a Canadian wishing to be a Yank?”

Just when I thought folks had stopped poking me with their pointy sticks about my politics and the name of my site called “ProudToBeCanadian”… I guess he’d seen where I criticized Canada, or something, in one video or another. Possibly the one where I show how Bill O’Reilly niggled the stupid state-owned CBC Politics show […]

Normal Christmas greetings welcomed and celebrated like normal folks at normal places…

You’ve all heard me yammer about the PC secular progressives with their heads up their butts trying their hardest to avoid using the word “Christmas” in every “seasonal greeting” (less this year because I believe we’ve all but won that battle in the culture wars now). But you want a little respite from all the […]

Left-wing media outlets, journos, display obtuse understanding of FAIR AND BALANCED, and JOURNALISM

I wanted to start out by saying “this is hard to believe!” but alas, it’s just not hard to believe anymore. This is Salon.com today: It’s based on a leaked memo. But this memo sounds like a directive to be fair and balanced in one’s reporting, to me, and to adhere to one of the […]

Conservative Party of Canada being led by effete blowhards? Cancel your membership.

To Canadian liberals like Conservative Party busy-bodies Geoff Norquay and Peter MacKay, tripe like this, found at the state-owned CBC website, seems to be perfectly fine: “No sympathy whatsoever for this guy or any other soldier killed in Afghanistan. You want to go play with guns and go to foreign countries to murder innocent people? […]
