My Soap Box: Pot, meet Kettle. Pot: “You’re black!!”

June 2, 2009

Irony [ahy-ruh-nee] noun: “A Fox News correspondent attacking a leftist think tank for “just [taking] the days talking points and try to reproduce them. It’s pretty clear what they are and what they do, they’re just party hacks, they’re the worst sort of people in politics.” He then goes on to call Obama a socialist.

Dear Mr. Fox correspondent, your homework tonight is to find a dictionary and look up the word ‘Hypocrite’ . That is all. Have a nice day.

Update: Later in the show, They run a talk about how the media is supposedly scared of Obama. That he supposedly runs monthly newsconferences and the ones in primetime are costing the networks millions, but they’re afraid to not run the conferences for fear of Presidential retaliation. So let me get this straight; Obama is running press conferences that are just fucking TV stations of big big money and networks are just teeming in fear because he’s gonna just run them into the ground if those press conferences aren’t aired? I have heard from Fox, more than once, that Obama needs to be more communicative about these uncertain times we’re in. So now that he IS communicating w/ the public on a regular basis it’s bad because he’s forcing them? And these multibillion dollar corporations are just crying in a corner for what may happen should the conferences not be shown? Fox, the main, big, national Fox channel (Fox 5 Atlanta, over here) didn’t run at least one of his prime time conferences and I heard nothing from the democrats about that, you know who I DID hear from, Fox News pundits basically applauding themselves for having their sister channel ignore the press conference. Also, I think I only count 3 primetime conferences and one was the state of the union address thingee (that isn’t really the state of the union adress, because incoming Presidents don’t do one on their rookie year) and the others were dealing w/ the financial crisis. Those, I personally think, are a bit more important than the latest episode of Deal or No Deal. I’m gonna drive myself crazy following these political antics. Cause both sides do shit that make me want to just drop out and be ignorant.
