Rahm Emanuel to Sean Hannity: “Shut the F*ck Up, You Lost” (CAVEAT - This is a parody article.)

Dr. Boyce Watkins

The reality is that someone needs to start speaking the truth about Fox News, for we must grow out of the mindset which leads us to believe that any pack of bigots with access to a media megaphone has a right to have their opinions respected. In fact, part of me believes that Fox News should be considered treasonous for its efforts to rip the nation at the seams in order to make a profit.

There’s almost nothing productive about speaking to Fox News analysts or feeding into the mindset that has continued to poison America. They are like the WWE of journalism, believing that a few million dollars and a large audience can fool others into believing that you have real journalistic integrity. Nearly every branded clown on the network, from Geraldo “Trayvon died for wearing a hoodie” Rivera to Juan “The Happy Negro” Williams has built a career on a foundation of lies, manipulation and blatant bigotry.

The words from this fictional conversation remind me of why I went from appearing on Fox every other day back in 2007 (before I truly understood what they are trying to do), to turning down every appearance request they’ve made for the last five years. The network has served as a platform of ideological terrorists and those who are determined to destroy the country we love. Any individual interacting with Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly or others in the Fox News “Axis of Ignorance” walks away feeling as disgusted as a nun who slept with her neighbor for a pound of butter.

Fox News is probably the most unAmerican news network in the history of the United States. It is a reminder of just how much work we must do to make our nation into what we want and need it to be. Hannity’s prominence and high salary are visible manifestations of the racism and ignorance that lies in the hearts of millions of Americans. We can track our nation’s progress toward racial healing by the ratings of this horrible network. We will know that America is a better country when Fox News ceases to exist.

13. Now what did I do wrong?

 

I had the exact title, the link, and a 4 para excerpt. Did I violate some unknown TOS? Is there some kind of parody smiley I should use? I was really trying to emphasize the real persons real comments about Fox News. I think they are so right on, I thought others on DU would be interested in reading a very righteous anti-Fox rant. Sorry you don't approve.

2. Should have known it was fictional, though.

Rahm only tells progressives and Dems to "shut the fuck up!".

12. correct, unfortunately. Rahm is "brave" the way it's defined inside the beltway:

kicking the poor and middle class is brave, but the only you ever say to the wealthy is "as you wish."

"We will know that America is a better country when Fox News ceases to exist."

16. I really dislike headlines like the one in the OP.

It states a falsehood as if it's a fact. And I really wanted to be true.

I don't know how much stock I put in an article written by a guy who didn't realize until 2007 what Fox was doing.

But, alas, I guess I'll take any drubbing of Fox I can get, no matter how weak.

19. I am well aware of it being the title of the article. After

all, isn't that what I was referring to...the title of the article?

I see no reason for your patronizing snark since the criticism is not aimed at you. But at least I know you a little better now.

And no, you were referring to the title of the OP. That's the only reason I replied. Semantics!
