I don’t know if the Number in my Headline is Really True & Accurate, but I Assume it is . . . AND THIS IS WHY.
For Years . . . Fox News has led off every RATINGS SEGMENT – BRAGGING about how Fox News is Leading all Competitors COMBINED in every Demographic Category.
BUT WE HAVEN’T HEARD . . . anything akin to that in probably more than a year. Don’t you wonder why?
AS A MATTER OF FACT . . . quite a few Months Ago, I wrote that MSNBC (of all Cable Networks) was CREAMING Fox News in the most Important Television Demographic Time Slots.
AND EVEN THOUGH CNN . . . is a Dreadful News Provider, they too have made a Comeback at the Expense of Fox News.
YESTERDAY . . . Monday, September 25, 2017 – I was listening to the Resurgence of the FIVE On FIVE in the Background, as I was waiting for the 6:00 O’Clock News with Bret Baier. PLUS I WANTED TO HEAR what Sean Hannity, who was to be their Special Guest, was going to say about his Guest Steve Bannon, who was slated to Kick-Off Hannity’s Return to his Original 9:00 O’Clock Time Slot.
NOW THIS WAS A REVELATION:
IT WAS SEAN HANNITY . . . Who said in a Braggadocios Way, how Strong the Fundamentals of Fox News were, considering that FOX NEWS “LOST” THREE QUARTERS OF ITS AUDIENCE – but in spite of it was still Hanging-In.
SO HOW ARE THE MURDOCH BROTHERS DEALING WITH THIS MEDIA MASSACRE?
AS UNBELIEVABLE AS THIS IS . . . The Sons of Robert Murdoch, the Owner & Co-Founder of Fox News, are acting like Deck-Hands on the TITANIC – REARRANGING THE DECK CHAIRS AS THE SHIP’S GOING DOWN.
FAKE NEWS AT 6:00PM WITH BRET BAIER:
Here was Bret Baier with his Panel of Three Opinionists, speaking about the NFL DISGRACE (my word) of NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, when one of the LEFTIST JACK-ASSES SAID . . . I never thought I would live to see the day when a President of the United States WOULD FORCE SOMEONE TO DO ANYTHING.
NOT ONLY WAS THAT A REPREHENSIBLE THING FOR THIS JERK TO SAY . . . It Wasn’t Even True or Accurate by the Most Remote Measure – Yet . . . Neither Bret Baier, Nor his other Two Guests CALLED OUT THIS JERK FOR FAKE NEWS.
AND BY THE WAY . . . If you want to talk about a President who FORCED the People to something they DIDN’T WANT TO DO . . . THINK OBAMACARE.
President Donald Trump NEVER FORCED ANYONE TO DO ANYTHING about this Insult to America . . . Least of all to Stand for the American Flag and/or the American Anthem. But, because Bret Baier and no one else challenged this CREEP, it makes Fox News a Purveyor of FAKE NEWS.
In another Fox News Program, some other Jerk Opinionist in a Town Hall Setting Said . . . It’s Totally Acceptable NOT to Stand for the American Flag, but NOT to Desecrate it. MORE FAKE NEWS ON FOX.
IN 1989 . . . the US Supreme Court of America Ruled that Desecrating (Burning) the American Flag was a LEGAL FORM OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION UNDER THE FIRST AMENDMENT.
When I used to turn-on Fox News . . . in the early days, I LOVED the Conservative Content. And then it became FAIR & BALANCED, which really meant . . . let me have some LEFTIST PIECE OF CRAP RUB YOUR FACE IN IT.
I didn’t Turn-On Fox News to Watch the Likes of Sniveling Juan Williams, the sickness of Geraldo Rivera who says he’s a Republican, but is proud to say that he voted for Obama TWICE. Or how Rivera is Best Friends with EVERYONE who is Someone, including his “DEAR FRIEND”, as he puts it, Donald Trump, just before he TWISTS the Knife in President Trump’s Back.
And who in the Hell needs to hear the Pearls of LEFTIST WISDOM coming from the Mouth of Marie Harf, who’s PROUD AS PUNCH to say repeatedly . . . that she had a hand in the Iranian Deal on behalf of Obama?
AND DO I REALLY NEED TO KNOW . . . nor should I care what Richard Fowler, the Black Socialist (Communist) thinks About All The Bad Things He Sees As Part Of The USA?
AND THEN THERE’S CARL ROVE & DANA PERINO . . . Two Swamp Creature Holdovers from the Bush 43-Years to tell me all about the Right & Wrongs of US Politics.
FOX NEWS DIDN’T BECOME GREAT BECAUSE IT SAT ON THE FENCE . . .
But Fox News has Fallen . . . Because Sitting On The Fence Has Become Its Most Comfortable Position.
FINALLY . . . ABOUT THE NFL DISGRACE TO THE FLAG, ANTHEM & FANS:
THERE IS NOTHING . . . Let me Repeat This – “NOTHING” Redeeming whatsoever about Taking a Knee to the Anthem or the Flag, that can be explained other than being a Horrible INSULT To The Country, the Men & Women who serve this Country in the most dangerous ways possible, and the FANS who spend BILLIONS of Dollars to Root for their Favorite TEAM, only to have that Team Disgrace the RED, WHITE & BLUE.
AND LET ME GO ONE STEP FURTHER . . . The Owners who allow this to happen, whether on the Field or off the Field, or who do not allow their Players to be on the Field during the Playing of the National Anthem . . . ARE DESPICABLE BASTARDS.
AMERICA’S TEAM MY ASS:
AND FOR JERRY JONES . . . Owner of the Dallas Cowboys to get on his Knee, Locked Arm-In-Arm with his Players and Coaches BEFORE the Anthem, and then to Stand Arm-In-Arm DURING the Anthem to show Solidarity with his Players, makes him, in my Opinion . . . THE BIGGEST BASTARD OF THEM ALL.
AND ONE MORE THING ABOUT THE FIRST AMENDMENT:
Everyone in the Media . . . is WAILING about the First Amendment Rights of the Players, Owners & Coaches to Express Themselves as the Constitution allows. But that is NEITHER TRUE – NOR IS IT RELEVANT, since the Constitution does not Cover PRIVATE Enterprise and the Behavior of Employees.
ALSO . . . according to NFL BYLAWS, there is a SPECIFIC Manner in which all NFL Players MUST Conduct themselves during the playing of the National Anthem . . . BUT FOR THE SAKE OF THIS EDITORIAL SCREW THAT.
WHAT ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT?
Why is it that these OVER-PAID Football Thugs are PRAISED by the Media for Exercising a First Amendment Right THEY DON’T HAVE, but President Trump is VILIFIED for exercising His First Amendment Right To Defend the HONOR & INTEGRITY of the American Flag & Anthem?
