Fox News Weighs in on Becks-lash 2009



At the end of this clip dude says that we have to admit that soccer is becoming an American sport and I feel a little uneasy about agreeing with someone on Fox Hate Network about anything. This is easily a low point for me, even worse than the night I drove around Dallas in a white Humvee limousine with Korn looking for topless bars.

Haha. You drove around looking for topless bars with Korn? Please elaborate on this story, it sounds like a good one.

Nice to here this from a fox reporter. One of the radio hosts, originally from a Phoenix fox station, went on a rant bashing soccer while he was subbing in for someone in Houston. Glenn Davis promptly embarrassed his lack of decent journalism, citing his escape to a "lazy, boring rant." Shows you that the old "soccer is an Un-American sport" argument is quickly becoming unacceptable.
And, I only watch Fox, but completely disagree with that radio host (obviously) The guy has been fired from his Phoenix news station (on different grounds)

One of which radio hosts? What are you talking about?

Whenever I see something like "Fox Hate Network" I realize that the individual making the remark is on par with sports reporters who bash soccer. totally blind incoherent idiocy

1:19 is hilarious, but it's true that Shep Smith is actually not the spawn of Country Music Satan.

Not so much Fox Hate Network as much as Fox Hype Network. It's simple tabloid-style journalism as perfected worldwide by Rupert Murdoch. Once you understand that you're essentially watching a 24-hour-news channel that takes its headline writing tips from The Sun (though not its sourcing standards; Fox is much higher there at least), you realize that it's not that bad. I was watching when Shep said that and I couldn't believe it. We've really turned a corner, I just wish they could've given the segment more time.

It's okay to agree with Shep, I find myself doing it all the time. Here he calls out Puritanical criticisms of that foot(hand)ball player who got shot: http://deadspin.com/5319700/foxs-shepard-smith-explains-mcnair-case-dying-is-not-illegal?autoplay=true

Just for instance.

Check out Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. It might be of interest to understand that anti-Fox News Channel people are standing on the shoulders of some pretty nasty and hateful folks. By the way, isn't this a soccer blog?

I don't know - seems to me you just turned into the Offside Hate Blog.

Congrats.

People who say ignorant things like that, particularly in this gratuitous way when there was no need to other than to preen a little, have never actually watched it.

But you go on toeing the official leftwing line about a network that has the unmitigated gall to have a couple of conservative commentators.

There's more "hate" on 10 minutes of Keith Olberman than 24 hours of FOX.

But you keep being narrow minded, so I won't feel bad about never coming to this blig again.

You know anonymous there are many people out there who are not really left wingers who can't stand Fox News. It doesn't make them ignorant or narrow-minded. What I don't like about their network is the lack of boundary between news and editorializing. There aren't just a "couple of conservative" commentators on Fox. There is an army of right-wing nutjobs on that channel.

And anyone who suggests reading Jonah Goldberg has clearly lost the plot, as Goldberg has.

Shep Smith is actually a very good reporter and news presenter, however.

I forget the radio hosts name. Go to Glenn Davis' soccer radio and listen to the first hour of his july 20th podcast

lol to the people so upset about you calling out their biased news network. They're all slanted one way or the other, but lol to all these upset people.

Malcolm Rolex said...

anonymous 8:22 just beat me to it... you guys are all going to get your panties in a bunch because he said on his blog that he's not a fan of fox?

you act like he stole your child, who gives a shit?

and yes, shepard smith is a chode too.

Anonymous said...

this is his blog, your reading it for his opinions, if you don't like them then that's unfortunate, in this particular case he is against fox news, however I would have to agree with him, there is definitely a lot more bias and hate on fox then compared to other news channel, but in reality if you want fair and balanced you should try BBC or France 24

Fox hates soccer, just like ESPN. We all know that.

I love seeing "open minded" folks accuse Fox of being hate filled or close minded. Pots and kettles.

I AM NEVER READING THIS BLOG AGAIN, LET ME TELL YOU!
I am horribly upset that you would say the the home of Glen Beck and the network that happens to change [congressman in sex scandal] - R to [congressman in sex scandal] - D a network of hate.

I bet you voted for B-rock The Islamic Shock HUSSEIN!!!!!1

---------------------------------

MSNBC has their own army of Liberal commentators. Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. The reality is that cable news has become a nightly political debate between Fox and MSNBC.
