Bossie apologized and so Fox News says he doesn't reflect their attitude. I wonder if he gets invited back.

“David Bossie’s comments today were deeply offensive and wholly inappropriate,” the statement said. “His remarks do not reflect the sentiments of Fox News and we do not in any way condone them.”

In other words he forgot to say it in code words.

Trumpsucker Maria Bartiromo publicly fluffs Dear Leader and gets mocked for it. I guess she feels that polishing Trump's knob isn't so bad if it pays well. Sean Hannity, the apex in Trumpsucking, certainly thinks so.

The complete intertwining of the Trump administration and Faux News continues. The dismissal of sexual assault by Trump does too.

Quote

Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson greeted the news that her one-time boss Bill Shine has officially joined President Donald Trump’s White House as deputy chief of staff for communications on Thursday with an air of disbelief and disgust.

Responding to the news on Twitter, Carlson wrote, “This .... on the 2 year anniversary eve of filing my harassment lawsuit; giving women a voice, letting them know you can be believed, launching a national movement to stand up and speak up and say enough is enough. Life ... works in mysterious ways.” She added the hashtag #BeFierce, which is also the title of her 2017 book about sexual harassment in the workplace.

Carlson is deeply familiar with Shine, who was named in at least three separate lawsuits against Fox News for allegedly covering up sexual harassment by the network’s late CEO Roger Ailes. Shine resigned in disgrace from Fox last spring just a few months after Ailes was ousted.

Of course I don't think what happened to Carlson was right but it's tough to feel sorry for somebody who made a career and a buttload of money on dismissing the valid claims of any number of groups being beaten on by Republicans over the years.

Kimberly Guilfoyle Left Fox News After Investigation Into Misconduct Allegations, Sources Say

Quote


Six sources said Guilfoyle’s behavior included showing personal photographs of male genitalia to colleagues (and identifying whose genitals they were), regularly discussing sexual matters at work and engaging in emotionally abusive behavior toward hair and makeup artists and support staff.

According to sources, Guilfoyle was the subject of a human resources investigation that started last year and involved interviews with Fox News employees, including hair and makeup artists and producers. Sources said HR warned Guilfoyle about her behavior several times, including a stern warning from Kevin Lord, the head of Fox News HR, in the fall of 2017. HuffPost also began investigating Guilfoyle’s workplace conduct last year.

Still (Steve) Douchey after all these years.

Quote

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday praised President Donald Trump for being willing to meet with the leaders of Iran without any preconditions — despite the fact that they savagely attacked former President Barack Obama for wanting to do the same thing when he ran for president in 2008.

After playing a clip of Trump on Monday saying he’d gladly meet with Iran to discuss a potential new nuclear deal, co-host Steve Doocy said such a meeting would make sense for the president, given that he has already met with the leaders of other U.S. rivals such as Russia, China and North Korea.

This contrasts strongly with what Doocy said about Obama’s willingness to meet with such leaders, as he once sarcastically described Obama’s strategy as reaching out “to these crazy people around the world and try to get things done.”

Steve Douchey has a minor revelation. All it took was two years, a firehose of information, the definitive analysis of every head of every U.S. intelligence agency, and public humiliation of his boy Trump by Vladimir Putin on the world stage in Helsinki.


Quote

Steve Doocy had an unusual revelation during an interview with National Security Adviser John Bolton on Tuesday morning’s Fox & Friends.

If Russia is still trying to disrupt American elections, as top White House officials reconfirmed last week, then does that mean Vladimir Putin “lied” to President Trump?

The host pointed out that the “show of force” in the White House press room aimed to emphasize that Russia “even today, apparently, is still meddling in our election process.”

This was likely news to many Fox & Friends viewers who are under the impression that the entire Russian investigation is, in the words of the president and the show’s no. 1 fan, a “hoax.”

“Given that, it kind of looks like Putin told our president a lie,” Doocy added.

Of course, during his infamous Helsinki press conference, Trump said that Putin was “extremely strong and powerful in his denial” that Russia had interfered and was continuing to interfere in U.S. elections.

It's interesting to note that Faux News seems to be having a bit of trouble walking the tightrope between at least having a fig leaf of legitimacy and falling over into full blown Alex Jones territory (though Hannity effortlessly passed that milepost long ago, just in a less ranting fashion). I posted elsewhere about the viewer meltdown over their poll that showed the majority of the country supported a path to legalization for immigrants already here and yet we have another Faux News reporter who has had enough and walked. What's a propaganda outlet masquerading as a news organization to do? My guess is they'll follow the money which means encroaching further on Alex Jones territory.

Quote

Another Fox News reporter has left the conservative network over its direction and vividly pro-Trump tone.

Adam Housley announced he was leaving Fox, which he joined in 2001, because the network’s focus on President Donald Trump and panel discussions had crowded out hard news reporting, reported Politico.

“He’s not doing the type of journalism he wants to be doing,” a former employee told the website. “And he is unhappy with the tone of the conversation of the channel.”


Quote

Housley’s discomfort with the pro-Trump tone at Fox News is widely shared among the network’s reporters, according to current and former employees.

“People are losing their minds,” one current Fox News personality told Politico.

Conor Powell stepped down as Jerusalem bureau reporter earlier this month over similar concerns, according to a person close to him.

Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters quit working as a contributor for the network in March because he believed its pro-Trump “propaganda” was harmful to American democracy.

“Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer,” Peters said in an email to colleagues. “I swore to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’ and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform.”

“Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers,” he added.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

Worthy of Faux News. Hell, worthy of The Onion too!

Quote

ox Business host Deirdre Bolton on Thursday suggested that the White House is functioning as it is supposed to after The New York Times revealed that a senior staff member is working behind the scenes to thwart President Donald Trump’s agenda.

In an op-ed published on Wednesday, a person who was described as “a senior official in the Trump administration” said that they considered it their patriotic duty to work against some of Trump’s agenda.

While Trump himself hinted that the anonymous writer may be guilty of treason, Bolton said that there is a silver lining for the president.

“I actually took away one positive, which I know is a bit odd,” Bolton explained. “The writer’s most concrete example of how the Trump administration is failing was about the sanctions against Russia, which seem to be something that the president did not want to do initially. But then, [the president] kind of came around.”

“So in some respects — although the person is very critical, obviously — that’s kind of the point,” she continued. “Right? You get all the smartest people in the room, everybody argues and hopefully the best idea wins. I mean, that’s the idealistic view, of course, of the sausage being made.”

“The one example that was [in the op-ed], I thought that was how the system was supposed to work,” Bolton added. “Smart people argue and the best idea wins.”

God. What a load of bilge.

Some remarks really for the Trump Phenomenon thread, but this news item prompts them and so they're here. When is this going to end? I'm tired, tired, tired! Tired of all the winning and all the whining. Tired of the post-truth society. Are truth and decency from now on just crank obsessions of a shrinking minority of nice ineffectual people such as TRS posters and British Quakers, like vegetarianism, or not using four-letter words[3]? If not, how long will the recovery take? How many decades? And what will the "recovery" look like?

The above is the start of one of my best rants, but I'll leave it there for now. Another thing bringing this on for me (fear not, my meds'll kick in 10 mins) is that although people over here seem at last to realise that a no-deal Brexit is looking seriously possible, we are also realising that our political system, and House of Commons in particular, is too broken to stop it. The Conservatives have no way of getting rid of Theresa May, and none of the possible successors have a clue what to do (and no-one has suggested a list), and that goes for the Labour party with Jeremy Corbyn too. And I am shocked (not "shocked—SHOCKED!", just shocked) when I hear Brexiteer politicians saying we're going to be fine because we're British and we[1] beat Germany in the war and that proves why we're the best, and because we always find a way and that's the British defining characteristic[2] . . .

Well, you got most of the rant anyway. It's 6.15 am here, I got out of bed half an hour ago, and I'm just going to do the British thing. Assume the stiff upper lip and make myself a nice cup of strong tea. Why not have a delicious Marmite sandwich too? (Seriously! I love the stuff). It's how we won the war!

ETA: I've just seen this: Gary Younge in the Guardian on this very subject.

[1] It's very bad taste, take it from me, to mention FDR, Eisenhower, Marshall Aid, D-Day etc., at this point in the argument. And we wouldn't even have had them if Churchill and Roosevelt hadn't got on so well.

[2] Sir Gerald Howarth MP (Con), on LBC Radio a few weeks ago. No caricature, I assure you. He was serious. It gave me a jolt, IDMTY, and Shelagh Fogarty, the interviewer, was horrified too.

[3] Well, maybe not for TRSers.
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

Just Tucker Carlson being Tucker Carlson.

Quote

One of the many topics raised by “>the anonymous New York Times op-ed penned by a senior Trump administration official who bragged of thwarting the president is the 25th Amendment.

One of the lesser-known provisions of the United States Constitution provides for a process by which the president’s own cabinet can remove him from office temporarily if he’s mentally or physically incapacitated.

Understandably, the revelation that the 25th Amendment had been discussed by Trump staffers led networks to explain to viewers how it works. CCN ran a segment explaining how it would work.

That provoked an angry response from former CNN host and current Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“CNN briefly ceased to be a news network and instead began indulging in on-air political fantasizing,” Carlson said as he showed a clip of an expert explaining the 25th Amendment. “I can’t believe I ever worked there,”

We can't believe it either, Tucker. We can't believe it either.


Bonus Tucker Hypocrisy points for accusing the opposition of what they do every day.

Quote

Carlson discussed the topic with Conservative guest Mark Steyn, who complained bitterly about the contents of Bob Woodward’s “lousy, unreadable book.”

“Sometimes you can be the only sane person in the world and it’s everyone around you who’s nuts,” Steyn said.

“How are they the same people that are forever lecturing us about subverting democracy?” Carlson said. “It’s mind-bending in its hypocrisy.”

Why yes, yes it is.

There's a new book by somebody born and raised in the white supremacist movement, and who got out. In an interview here's what he has to say about Tucker Carlson. As we've said here before it's no longer dog whistles but bullhorns.

Quote

Tucker Carlson. Don Black and his wife really liked Tucker Carlson. Did that surprise you?

It did surprise me, although it doesn’t anymore. Unfortunately, for this book I had spend a bunch of time on Stormfront and places like it, they love Tucker Carlson. White nationalists, I would say, consider Tucker Carlson as one of their own. He carries the rhetoric of white nationalism into the public space in ways that nobody else does.

Don and Chloe [Hardin Black] not only watch his show but then re-watch it every night. They watch it twice.

Scarier for me was looking at Tucker Carlson’s ratings, and seeing that his show, in this moment, is crushingly popular. It’s the one broadcast that white nationalists hold dear, and also the most popular cable TV show going. I think that reveals some of our problems.

Yes. I was like, whoa. It didn’t surprise me that they watched him. It surprised me a little bit you would watch a cable news show twice in a row.

The sense of grievance that he’s preying on is this idea that like, “Your America is being taken from you.” That’s exactly what white nationalists are saying all the time. I mean, Tucker Carlson might not say on the air, “White Americans, your America is being taken from you,” but it’s clear who he’s speaking to. Donald Trump does some of the same things.

For white nationalists, stuff like that is music to their ears. They’re constantly trying provoke white people to action, get them to embrace this idea that your country is disappearing. You are now in danger. That there’s a white genocide, you’re a threatened species. That’s basically what Tucker Carlson’s entire show is about.

Faux News, still America's number one most trusted Republican propaganda outlet.

Quote

Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” hosted by Stuart Varney, advertised on Twitter Monday night that it would be broadcasting “LIVE from the White House this Wednesday,” adding: “Who knows who might show up for an interview?”

Turns out, a lot of people: Varney interviewed eight Cabinet members and other senior White House officials, in addition to the President himself, between 9 a.m. and noon.

Every guest on Varney’s show — officials and others who accompanied them, including a coal miner who appeared with Kellyanne Conway and a manufacturer who appeared with Linda McMahon — was also listed as attending an Oval Office event on deregulation Wednesday, “Cutting the Red Tape, Unleashing Economic Freedom.” Trump also held a Cabinet meeting Wednesday.

Bill Shine, the White House deputy chief of staff for communications, is the former co-president of Fox News.

Here’s Wednesday’s impressive line-up:
