Yes, it’s Beck Week on Political Pwnage. Or is that Beck Weak? If I could analyse the bus-sized chalkboard I would, but I can’t, so I won’t. Even the master himself looks confused at points unsure of what his conspiracy doodles mean. Try to decipher the noise and if you can, let us know. We are still head scratching about exactly what he means.
Let’s be honest here: FOX news is probably one of the most (if not THE most) propaganda-laced news networks in existence, today. We here at Political Pwnage have numerous posts citing this “water is wet” level of obviousness. And honestly, we almost feel bad for these folks, because it’s like shooting fish in a deep fryer.
But sometimes, when the planets are aligned perfectly, even our neocon friends not only get it right, but right on. Just watch as Obama is shown stating that the sequester was not his or his administration’s idea, but then watch as Mr. White House Press Secretary himself, Jay Carney states the complete opposite. Damn, son. One can only assume Obama must be eating a lot of bacon with his breakfast these days; to go along with the copious amounts of egg on his face.
This is just priceless. When a crowd notices that FOX is trying to report on them they take exception and makes them look silly with a simple but effective chant. The anchor encourages his field reporter to power through it but the FOXed up report just gets drowned out and has to revert to leaving the scene and performing the report on a cell phone. Check it out.
It’s nice to see John McCain make non-sensationalist appearances. It seems the McCain we knew was mostly absent after his twin brother showed up totally focused on Benghazi. During a discussion on Sean Hannity’s show the old McCain did show up though amid all this noise to educate FOX on exactly how they have been misreporting Middle Eastern News.
Oh, how right you are Omar Little. This title is lifted from one of the best lines, of the best characters of arguably the best television show ever made. The Wire. In a slow post election news cycle Political Pwnage digs back deep into the FOX News archives to revive one of the most one sided discussions of all time in 3 parts. Clinton agreed to a 15 minute interview with Chris Wallace so long as half the interview was spent speaking about the Clinton Global Initiative. It was an obvious ploy for FOX to ambush the former President. But being such an obvious ploy, and Bill Clinton being Bill Clinton, he was ready. Chris Wallace spent a few minutes discussing softball questions and grinning to set his trap while Clinton sat relaxed and waited. Then, quite casually, Chris Wallace tries to pin 9/11 on the former POTUS asking a question he must have practiced 100s of times. Not unlike a political transformer, the casual elder statesmen straightens up and moves from social change Jimmy Carter POTUS to I’m the POTUS bitch, and now I”m the president of you. There’s a particular spirit for politics Bill Clinton has few other politicians have ever exhibited. Rather then be consumed by political bullshit Bill Clinton thrived in it. He loved The Game. Instead of showing agitation or being ruffled by such an enormous accusation he’s not offended. You can read it all over the man’s face “I was wondering when we were going to start this thing.” Chris Wallace then gets to spend another 15-20 minutes getting embarrassed on his own network learning an important lesson. You come at the king, you best not miss.
