“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. Penny Nance, president of the PAC Concerned Women for America (who semi-defensively let us know immediately upon first speaking on camera that being a… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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’s… READ MORE »

In promoting his new book (which I am too irritated to even link to) on Fox News’ “Trending With Tantaros,” KISS frontman Gene Simmons proclaimed that we ladies need to stop leeching off our men because so many dudes walk out anyway, and that we should just actively plan for abandonment instead. Gene, what’s the deal… READ MORE »

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. They argued that most people become conservatives as they get older, and that young women start as liberals until they marry and gain enough “life experience” READ MORE »

“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… READ MORE »

Dr. Keith Ablow, professional douchebag/member of Fox’s “Medical A-Team,”  is known for his general assholery and sometimes-shady health advice. On Tuesday, he appeared on the show “Outnumbered” and made a remark that was bold even for him: he said he couldn’t take Michelle Obama’s school nutrition campaign seriously because she needs to “drop a few” pounds.

Why Fox News is recapping “The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose” is beyond me. Alas, while “The Five” discussed how romance reject Nick Viall quite reasonably asked Andi Dorfman why she had sex with him in the “fantasy suite” if she knew she wasn’t in love with him, gross old dude panelist Bob Beckel… READ MORE »

Fox News’ new show “Outnumbered” pits four female anchorbabes up against one male guest. The premise? Gender wars! Fun! On Friday, the male guest, (unscrupulous) Fox Business contributor Charles Payne, wore a cute little accessory on air to signal his disdain for the opposite sex: cufflinks depicting a caveman with a club, dragging a woman… READ MORE »

As I read the chyron “Girls Gone ‘Mild’: Book Advises Women Not To  Raise Their Voices,” I was all ready to watch this Fox News segment advising women on how to carry themselves professionally in the workplace and then kill it with fire.

Earlier this week, Slate.com columnist Aisha Harris wrote a somewhat tongue-in-cheek piece arguing that Santa Claus needed a makeover. Instead of always being depicted as a jolly, fat, white man, Santa Claus should be a penguin. Harris wrote about growing up as a Black child and seeing two versions of Santa — on TV and… READ MORE »

“There’s no denying that from the surface it appears to be some sort of cover-up. But when you look at the finer details, there are telltale signs of this girl actually lying.

At this point, we shouldn’t be surprised when Fox News does something terrible. And indeed, my general response to their ridiculous antics and rightwing pandering is to just sigh and roll my eyes. But this? The network using Aerosmith’s “Dude Looks Like A Lady” as the background and outro music for a story on Bradley… READ MORE »

Watch Fox News’ Megyn Kelly decimate her pompous blowhard guest, who is judgmentally arguing that stay-at-home-moms are “better” for all kids.

Feministing blogger Zerlina Maxwell is a survivor of rape. Last week, Maxwell appeared with Sean Hannity on Fox News and what she said on the show generated some racist, misogynist comments and both rape threats and death threats. Her “controversial” comment? She said, “I think we should be telling men not to rape women and start… READ MORE »
