FOX Has the Nerve to Call MSNBC "Biased" and "Political"...

After having the irony neurons successfully removed from their “brains,” the breezy FOX & Friends team were simply shocked—SHOCKED!—that NBC and MSNBC act in a way that they (and the White House) consider to be “biased” and “political.”

That’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 “balance” the "liberal media" in a way that they and they alone considered to be “fair”? Gretchen Carlson went on to decry how Keith Olbermann dared to tell Bush to “shut the hell up,” 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 O’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 FOX’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 fallen…
