Fox & Friends Segment Replaces SOTU Audience Laughter And Applause With Cricket Sound Effects | Media Matters for America

Fair and Balanced...

How do they still call themselves "news"?

"It sounded kinda quiet after those laugh lines." *Slight smirk appears on Kilmeade's face*

*Cricket sounds*

(Seriously. WOW. That's beyond sad.)

Anyone who really thinks there were crickets chirping is an idiot. But tell me, PhilsFan, is what F&F did better or worse than what MSNBC did last year? Here's the video to refresh your memory:

YouTube - MSNBC Lies to Promote Racial Tension

But remember, it's just their evening lineup that's biased. Their daytime "news" is perfectly reliable.

Now which was a harmless attempt at humor (however childish), and which was a dangerous lie? Did you discuss that in your journalism class, I hope?

1. Do you really want to get into discussing whether or not Fox News has helped propogate dangerous lies?

2. "Well the other side does it too" isn't a very convincing excuse for bad behavior.

So the commentators of Fox and Friends are idiots?

Thank you for clarifying this.

They obviously thought their audience would fall for this propaganda, pretty revealing about what they think of you all.

You see, I don't pimp MSNBC as being unbiased. MSNBC does shit from time to time that makes me shake my head. This is an example.

But Fox does it way more. That's the point. If you really wanna do a tale of the tape, Fox will look worse. But conservatives will rally around Fox in a way liberals never will for MSNBC.

I just love that the discussion just ends up being "Oh YEAH, well YOUR LIBERAL NETWORK IS BIASED TOO!" instead of something substantive.

God help the media in the U.S., that's all I can say.

i'd say this is way, way, way tamer than the Fox News "vigilance" against the threat of Black Panther intimidation at the polls.

remember that hysteria? remember all that airtime? remember the hours dedicated to stopping the Black Panthers (all two of them)? yeah. thought so.

Why do you insist on downplaying the story?
