Fox News may have fatally shot itself..by mocking 102 year old woman for standing in line

Making fun of a 102 year old woman standing for 6 hours will not work in this country..(see video in Video and Multimedia Forum) here, posted by... Grassy Knoll ..last night:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/101799134


.Nope...this one will not fly...This will destroy Fox's reputation among a lot of seniors that followed Fox without thought. For once, some of the seniors who are stuck on Fox, will think. So..in my opinion, Fox will lose another 20 to 30 percent of viewers, over time..slowly as this one, or its equivilant..spreads throughout the country....
...very slowly..this will evolve into an incredible moment that could bring Fox down....

....This is it...in my opinion...Yes, some will stay with Fox..of course...but to lose 20 to 30 percent more viewers as Fox gets pounded over time...and it will take time..like the 47 percent statement..will destroy Roger the asshole.
.....Or..maybe they will apologize...but if they do.......it is will be like that asshole who discussed "legitimate rape.."...too late..too little. Roger will have to fire all three of those talkers..and he won't..But that mocking must go viral..and it will...slowly, as the rest of the media picks this up..This one will be really fun to watch..

1. you don't understand

She was black and so to many Fox viewers that makes her less then human so mocking
her is fine.

2. Spot On!

I wouldn't be surprised if they claimed she was a member of the "New" Black Panthers.

4. I don't think so. I would argue with that right here:

Her being 102 years old, will trump the racism card. She looks 102 and is 102. So, we all have some kinds of feelings for 102 year old people..
...Even Fox news watchers. We all have older friends and relatives that have difficulty standing. That will overcome the hatred of this old black woman among many. I guess 20 to 30 percent of the stuck on Fox viewers will leave when this goes viral. Sure, a lot will stay. But this one will do it for many. Even younger viewers will see this as going too far. And the rest of the media will have a good time mocking Fox News reporting..and it will go viral..It will start later today..and pick up. That is my opinon..

15. EXACTLY!

They only care about themselves! They don't even care about their own descendants since they are climate change deniers. They don't care if there are jobs for people paying into the Social Security or Medicare they are using, ship them overseas.

Too selfish and afraid to even identify with that lady.

19. Yes

A lot of their viewers think that non-whites and woman shouldn't be allowed to vote.

6. Bullshit Mountain's...

...problem is they aren't "conservative" enough. They were Willard's biggest cheerleaders last year that pissed off the teabaggers and many others...especially when many expected a Rmoney win only to see their "great white hope" go down in flames. Faux became the scapegoat...their ratings took a big hit. This is why they shitcanned Dick "twinkletoes" Morris and Mooselini Palin.

Faux's big problem is their audience shrinks every time an EMT goes to Sun City...the same thing with hate radio...

8. They've Moved On...

In fairness I saw some of the late night comedians make fun of this brave lady. Of course they won't apologize...they feel if this lady came to such a public event, picking on her is fair game. They're on to the next poutrage...

9. They have moved on, but the rest haven't...Here is why...

This will get picked up by Stephanie Miller, and Thom Hartman, and tonite..Ed Schultz, and Rachael..and many others. Fox has moved on..but this one, like the 47 percent statement is too much. Because it was on "radio" it took time to get caught..but it did....
Fox News is a target, cause Fox News goes after the rest of the media for being.."left wing liberal" which of course is another lie.

So, Fox News will for once pay, and pay dearly when this one gets around...and I believe that it will..in ways that no one ever thought of...And it is about time....

13. Beating Up Faux...Old Hat...

I watch Steph and half of her show is "Right Wing World" these days...but I also know I'm part of a very, very small audience. It's preaching to the choir...yet another outrage log on the Faux fire.

There's plenty of bright shiny toys out there for the talking heads to chase...the SOTU is already passe, they're onto Cruise ships and Hagel's fillibuster.

Truth is Faux noise has far less impact than believed...last year's election results are your proof. On their best nights they may reach 3 million people...out of a nation of 300 million. It's a squeaky wheel...and it's magnified within the bubble they've created...but overall most people could care less about faux. Their credibility shreaded years ago...Al Franken did a fine job doing this.

What will eventually pull Faux Noise down is Rupert's health. This is his toy...a corporate loss leader that is sure to undergo big changes when Rupe goes to the other side...his kids will carve up the corporation and sell off the parts...

11. It would be nice to think so

but I doubt it.

FOX viewers/rightwingers see compassion, empathy, humanitarianism, etc., as pathetic weaknesses, something to be mocked.
