    On the Fox News side of the political spectrum, noted Stephen Colbert on Monday night’s Colbert Report, the lens was more narrowly focused on why Hillary got Vanity Fair to run the Lewinsky essay now.

    Watch Jon Stewart snap at Fox News over its selective outrage on Benghazi

    The segment compares the Benghazi mess to the Iraq War mess, with an eye on how Fox News and GOP politicians reacted to similar, Stewart argued worse, muddles involving Team Bush and Iraq.

     

  5. Fox News reportedly used footage of random Asian people instead of Koreans mourning the ferry disaster

    In a clip about the Sewol ferry disaster in South Korea that killed over 260 last month, Fox News broadcast footage of random sad Asian people instead of mourning Koreans, Global Post reports.  The footage, which has since been deleted from Fox’s website, was of “people presumably from another region of Asia” and not Koreans, according to KoreAm, a blog covering Korean American culture.

  8. Much of the world now sees Putin for what he is: a semi-delusional autocrat who views the disillusion of the Soviet Union as one of the greatest tragedies in the late 20th century and has confused his own geo-political propaganda for reality. Who would be fooled by this guy’s bull sh*t?
     


  9. Sex and beauty sell. No one expects, or should expect, news operations to be devoid of friction, humor, even joke(rs) who might cross a line or two. But with a guy at the top who doesn’t seem to respect women, and has a history of appearing to treat them as objects, I wonder what life must be like for women who work at Fox.

    The share of Americans aged 18-29 who view Christmas as “more of a cultural holiday”.  Among those 65 +, only 19% agree.

  11. Though free markets, profit motives, and unrestrained accumulation of wealth have no immediate relationship with Christianity, the cross and the coin are nonetheless powerful, paired symbols of the American right wing. Catholic conservatives thus must carve a way around Francis’ difficult insistence that governments be harnessed toward the relief of poverty, not the creation of it.

  13. WATCH: Fox’s Megyn Kelly rips Erick Erickson over sexist comments

    On Wednesday, a study saying that women are now the primary or sole earners in 40 percent of households with children was released by the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project.

    In response, Red State editor Erick Erickson decided to put his science hat on and dropped this insight on Fox News Business:

    When you look at biology — when you look at the natural world — the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complementary role. We’ve lost the ability to have complementary relationships… and it’s tearing us apart.

    It turns out that Fox News employs some of these females, including one named Megyn Kelly. She was not happy with Mr. Erickson.
