Where’s the link?

Fake news! No link!

I think this is it. http://video.foxnews.com/v/5329167616001/?#sp=show-clips

That message needs to be repeated over and over and over to President Bannon and Donnie, the sock puppet, until they get it.


#6

“but I gotta say”

“cuz normally I say whatever I’m told to say”


#7

Trump done peed on the third rail.


#8

For most of that interview, Chris Wallace seemed to be channeling his father. Then right at the end, it looked like he remembered who he works for and that he’s supposed to be nice to Priebus.


#9

Well its good Priebus went on the record saying the campaign did not communicate with Russia.

Ok NYT. Now do your job.


#10

The funny part is that Fox News IS an enemy of the people.


#11

Nonsense.

It’s long past the time when we should dedicate a memorial to the fallen heroes of Wolf 359!


#12

Highlights the greatness of George Washington who tolerated attacks from a free press and set the precedent for upholding the first amendment. Then John Adams made a fool of himself with the Alien and Sedition Acts, which Thomas Jefferson refused to enforce.


#13

As much as Fox News has worked hand in hand with the GOP propaganda arm, they’re waking up to the reality that Trump presents a threat to all “traditional” media that isn’t under his personal control.

“But you don’t get to tell us what to do, Reince, any more than that
Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I
gotta say, he never said that we were an enemy of the people.

No, and he never called Fox an enemy of the people, either.

Calm down, Chris. Trump named, as enemy Fake News sources: “NYTimes, NBCNews, ABC, CBS, CNN.” He specifically omitted Fox, which is either not news or not enemy news. Either way, relax! You guys got a pass.

gramercypolice over at TheSlot gets all my stars forever for this one: “The enemy of my enemy is my newspaper.”

(Also, BarfBag is a wonderful new feature from the re-formed ex-Gawker properties. Make it a daily read!)


#17

When Fox News starts to sound responsible, you know you’re in trouble.


#18

Is that a brain scan?

For now.

It’s possible FOX may be starting to worry what will happen if Trump continues to out-crazy them.
