I am wondering just what that girl is thinking.
Women Jealous of Romney’s Wife Because She Married Rich? (by TheYoungTurks)
As a woman, may I just say that of all the emotions I feel towards Ann Romney, envy isn’t even remotely close to being one of them.
Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada’s right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.Canada’s Radio Act requires that “a licenser may not broadcast … any false or misleading news.”
I can’t even hate on Canada right now.
Canada, I think I love you
I’ve never been so proud :’)
I love Canada with all my heart right now.
Today in Fox reader reactions to the Aurora tragedy.
There are no words to describe how inhuman and despicable these “people” are.
Oh my. So in their zeal to rehabilitate their credibility, they hire someone from the least credible network on television? I guess that makes as much sense as anything the Vatican has done in Benedict’s papacy.

If he wanted to issue a challenge, he should have asked for someone to show him an example of fair and honest reporting on Fox News. That would actually offer up a degree of difficulty.
The reason why Fox News feels so threatened by Jon Stewart is because his program is more popular than anything not named Bill O’Reilly on the network. Not only is Stewart popular, but he is popular with the coveted young demographics that Fox News struggles with. The average Fox News viewer is 65 years old. For years, the Fox News model of success has been powered by viewers literally aging in to watching Fox.
However, Jon Stewart has thrown a wrench in the Fox News cycle of life by educating his millions of younger viewers about Fox News. Stewart spends segments debunking the propaganda, exposing facts, and uncovering the edited video that is the bread and butter of America’s top cable news network.
Every night Stewart is teaching Americans how to not watch Fox News. The Daily Show host has become the media critic with the biggest platform and loudest voice in our country, and most often that voice is targeting Fox News for their brand of “journalism.”
Even though the US economy is slumped in the doldrums, some of the country’s shrewdest commentators make a serious case that Obama could be heading for a landslide victory in 2012.
How to explain such a turnaround? In the United States, at least, there is one compellingly simple, two-word answer: Fox News.
By any normal standards, Obama should be extremely vulnerable. Not only is the economy in bad shape, he has proved to be a much more hesitant, less commanding White House presence than his supporters longed for. And yet, most surveys put him comfortably ahead of his would-be rivals. That’s not a positive judgment on the president – whose approval rating stands at a meagre 44% – but an indictment of the dire quality of a Republican field almost comically packed with the scandal-plagued, gaffe-prone and downright flaky. And the finger of blame for this state of affairs points squarely at the studios of Fox News.
Jon Stewart, on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and her
strangely not conservativecrusade for paid maternity leave
Anti-“government handouts” until they apply to you, Fox News style. From Jezebel’s article Megyn Kelly Bravely Stands up for Megyn Kelly’s Rights:
While Kelly’s pro-maternity leave stance might seem encouraging, and a prominent woman conservative woman advocating any sort of social program refreshing, it’s not brave or envelope pushing to advocate policies that would be immensely beneficial to yourself. As Jon Stewart pointed out, Kelly isn’t so progressive when it comes to other social programs that would immensely help other populations, as that would be “government intrusion.” Megyn Kelly is about as Girl Power as Sarah Palin or Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

An article sanctioned by Fox News about an organization using words to drive political goals and “affix inflammatory connotations to words and phrases used in the policy discussions with which they disagree?”
I will forever be tempted to post the Bill O’Reilly
loofah “sexy” phone messages in response to every Bill O’Reilly quote.
Racism: it never gets old. Oh wait…
