Faux Noise

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

What fascinates and befuddles me is wingnuttery and dumbfuckery. I've also always been fascinated by how water swirls as its going down the drain; they say it swirls counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere but I've not been down there to confirm this.
That's a myth, but as for other wingnuttery and dumbfuckery:

Exclusive: The true origins of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory. A Yahoo News investigation.

Faux Noise finally retracted after eight days, but it’s been too cowardly to apologize and Hannity has never had the stones to do either.

Do Racism, Conservatism, and Low I.Q. Go Hand in Hand?
Conservative Syndrome could help explain link between religiosity and lower intelligence
Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice
Couple all that with a belief system whose every, single tenet is based on ignorant, unreasoned fear- fear that is easily engaged, triggered, manipulated and enhanced. They are simply unable, in any sense, to act or react with logic or sanity.

:lol: After reading about the Yale experiment, I came away feeling that folks like Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and all those others must be scared to death and it made me feel even better about telling Meadows how I hoped his female family members would be sexually assaulted by members of groups that he most detests (fears the most).

They are wussy snowflakes. EVERY SINGLE FACET of "conservative" ideology is rooted in fear. Illogical, unreasoned fear.

Fox News Cuts Into Trump Speech To Deliver A Brutal Real-Time Fact Check

Ouch, what's a Trumpette to do when their own state media, Faux Noise, starts telling the truth about their idol?

You spend a lot of time keeping up with Fox News. I liked your Fox News - Police Officer human interest story.

    Ilhan Omar responds to Tucker Carlson's rant about her: 'Racist fool'

    Calling Tucker Carlson a “racist fool” is like saying that the Sun rose in the East this morning.

    Fox News Hasn’t Asked Paid Contributor Ken Starr (or Alan Dershowitz) About His Pedophile Client Jeffrey Epstein

    It's just Faux Noise being sleazy Faux Noise.

    Ken Starr career "high"lights:
    Disrupted an entire nation over lies about consensual adult sex.
    Presided over the Baylor rapes and coverups.
    Represented a pedophile.

    He may not be our worst perv ever, but he's the most wide-ranging one.

    From what I understand from reading about the Epstein case, the court records were under seal until recently, and if so, nobody would have known to ask about their involvement in it.

    Idk if lawyer names get hidden.

    Anyhow, according to the article The Daily Beast reported on March 12, 2019 that Dershowitz helped negotiate the deal. The article then links the Miami Herald, Nov. 28, 2018:
    Acosta, in 2011, would explain that he was unduly pressured by Epstein’s heavy-hitting lawyers — Lefkowitz, Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, Jack Goldberger, Roy Black, former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis, Gerald Lefcourt, and Kenneth Starr, the former Whitewater special prosecutor who investigated Bill Clinton’s sexual liaisons with Monica Lewinsky.
    Faux Noise has never asked either about Epstein. :roll:

    Clarification to my post above: The article says, " Dershowitz ... has appeared on Fox News more than 70 times since news of that 2008 deal broke," but it only calls Starr ("interviewed ... at least 59 times") "a paid Fox News contributor".

    Not sure that it matters. As the article argues, I think Faux Noise had an absolute responsibility to ask both about Epstein. If prosecutor Acosta is news, surely the defense team that's sitting on your set also is.

    then it seems the ability to ask them about their involvement was present and they didn't do it. But then again, nobody else did either until this latest episode. As far as I konw, Dershowitz is the only surviving member of OJ's defense team. I wonder how he feels about that one?

    Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman are unrecognizable as Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson in 1st 'Bombshell' trailer

    You have to see it with your own eyes, but Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman have absolutely transformed for the new film, "Bombshell."

    "BOMBSHELL is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it," the official description reads, alongside the first teaser trailer.



    The 85-second clip is more of an introduction to the women, Theron as Megyn Kelly, Kidman as Gretchen Carlson.

    The power duo gather in an elevator, alongside Margot Robbie, who plays a fictional character, and the silence is deafening.

    Check out the thrilling clip above and the movie when it's out on Dec. 20.

    Roger Ailes, who died in 2017, was forced to resign in 2016 after Carlson accused him of sexual harassment in a lawsuit. Other women at Fox News, including Kelly, also said Ailes sexually harassed them during his tenure at the cable news channel.

    "Bombshell" also stars John Lithgow as Roger Ailes, Connie Britton as Beth Ailes, Allison Janney and Kate McKinnon.
    Helluva cast, might be fun.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls Out Laura Ingraham After Grammar Tweet: ‘You’re a Neo-Nazi Fan Favorite’

    :lol:

    As y'all know ;) , I don’t mind grammar correction, but “less” vs. “fewer” is really desperate and lame, Nazi Laura.

    WATCH: Laura Ingraham Drinks Steak Impaled With Lightbulbs and Plastic Straws to Own the Libs

    :confusion-scratchheadblue: Article

    Yes, Laura, that video "will be in the Smithsonian," but not for the reason you think or will like. Is she making fun of we lefties or of righties? Is she really saying that her team is that childish and moronic? If so, I agree.

    Just more moronic Republican nonsense; if Laura impaled her ass with crushed light bulbs and plastic straws and pushed it all out on tv, I'd probably watch and perhaps even applaud depending on how things worked out. :)

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson turns on Trump for asking Ukraine to investigate his rival Joe Biden: ‘There’s no way to spin this’

    "However, Carlson insisted that the president’s actions did not rise to the level of an impeachable offence"

    Translation: Only one of Tucker's lips has dislodged from Dolt .45's butt.

    Between Shep Smith and this, I guess that Barr's message to Rupert Murdoch got through. They should rename to the SychoFox Network.
