Duggar Family To “Share Our Hearts” In Fox News Interview

THUMP. THUMP. THUMP.

Sorry, I was just banging my head against my desk. It seems the Duggar family has decided to grant an interview to none other than Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in which they will discuss the fact that son Josh Duggar molested five girls as a teenager. Michelle Duggar wrote o…

Kirsten Powers Might Be Right About “Illiberal” Feminist Rhetoric

Columnist and FOX News contributor Kirsten Powers has an essay up on The Daily Beast today calling out “illiberal” feminists for bearing down so hard on anyone who doesn’t agree with them that they’re effectively silencing other, non-feminist perspectives. I would normally be happy to sit back with a glass of wine and watch the…

Freddie Gray, Baltimore & Beyond: What To Read/Watch/Listen To Since TV News Is A Steaming Pile Of Hot Garbage

The mainstream media, and cable news especially, has long been a complete and utter hot mess, but the level of idiocy, godawful “reporting” and outrageous spin has hit new heights in its coverage of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, including the recent events in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray. The Washington Post, reporting on a “tip” from inside the Baltimore Police Department,…

Roundup: Fox News Reacts To The Oscars

Several times yesterday, I quite nearly posted about a thing someone on Fox News said about the Oscars. Then, before I could even get something together, another person on Fox had said an even more ridiculous thing about the Oscars. So you know what? I decided to just do a roundup.

Bill O’Reilly Is A Lying Liar, But Fox Is Not About To Care

When the news broke about Brian Williams having lied about his helicopter having been nearly shot down while he was covering the Iraq war, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was there to tear him to shreds with a searing monologue about how important it is for the fourth estate to, you know, not lie about…

Fox Fears “Frozen” Is “Empowering Girls” By Portraying Dudes As “Evil And Cold”

“Fox And Friends” host Steve Doocy is clutching his pearls (okay maybe his cufflinks) over what he calls “The Frozen Effect,” which — gasp — makes girls feel good about themselves.

Megyn Kelly On Women: “We’re Drinking, We’re Smoking, We’re Having Premarital Sex”

Megyn Kelly, you’re all right.

Say what you will about Fox News (which hopefully is very little, because my god, talk about bottling up the worst conservative arguments into one place and giving them a megaphone), one thing is true: their own Megyn Kelly, right-leaning host of “The Kelly File,” is kind of…

SHOCKER: Eric Bolling Said Something Stupid About Women

I avoid Fox News entirely for exactly this reason. Every time I watch a clip from Fox News — excepting Bill O’Reilly’s sympathetic monologue about the injustice of Eric Garner’s murder — I just end up with high blood pressure. I don’t like to hate-watch! And yet, I keep hate-watching.
Anyway, in this week’…

Fox Anchor: Young Women Serving On Juries Is A Bad Idea Because They “Don’t Get It”

Kimberly Guilfoyle and her co-hosts on “The Five” decided on Tuesday’s edition of the show that young women are just too out of it to be functional members of society.

“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade joked yesterday that the message behind the brutal video released by TMZ depicting since-terminated Ravens player Ray Rice beating his then-fiancée Janay Rice was “take the stairs.” His co-host Steve Doocy quipped, “The message is, when you’re in a an elevator, there’s a camera.” On today’s show, Kilmeade addressed…
