FOX Has the Nerve to Call MSNBC "Biased" and "Political"...
After having the irony neurons successfully removed from their Ã¢â‚¬Å“brains,Ã¢â‚¬Â the breezy FOX & Friends team were simply shockedÃ¢â‚¬â€SHOCKED!Ã¢â‚¬â€that NBC and MSNBC act in a way that they (and the White House) consider to be Ã¢â‚¬Å“biasedÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“political.Ã¢â‚¬Â
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right, people on FOX attacked an actual news network for being biased and political, and did it with a straight face. This from a network that was established with the sole focus of having more Republican bias than all the networks combined in an attempt to Ã¢â‚¬Å“balanceÃ¢â‚¬Â the "liberal media" in a way that they and they alone considered to be Ã¢â‚¬Å“fairÃ¢â‚¬Â? Gretchen Carlson went on to decry how Keith Olbermann dared to tell Bush to Ã¢â‚¬Å“shut the hell up,Ã¢â‚¬Â claiming that she would never show such disrespect to a president. This from FOX, who owes its very existence to the fact that they were willing to attack, lie about, mock, and demonize Bill Clinton 24 hours a day during his presidency, then continue doing it for years after? This from FOX, the home of Sean Hannity, Bill OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, John Gibson, and every right wing whackjob who can string together a few syllables?
After 9/11, it was declared that irony was dead. But clips like this makes it clear that irony is alive and well and has a happy home wherever a Republican feigns outrage.
P.S. Any chance that FOXÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s attack has something to do with the escalating feud between FOX and NBC/MSNBC after executives at MSNBC refused to stop Keith Olbermann from making fun of FOX? Oh, how the self-righteous have fallenÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
