FOX NEWS Chews Its Own Leg Off in a FURY of Recrimination




Fox News called Ohio for Obama, Karl Rove challenged the decision on-air, causing what can only be described as a kernel panic. Fox News' decision desk, its institutional center of authority for making sound election calls, had issued its decision. And Fox News, in its capacity as a newsgathering operation, had called the election for Obama. But Karl Rove, Fox News' ideological paymaster, challenged the decision. So Megyn Kelly got out of her anchor chair, walked down the hall, and interrogated her own highly trained election analysts on Rove's behalf.

Fox News Decision Desk Stands by Call That Obama Will Carry Ohio

3. SURPRISE SURPRISE, room full of white guys with laptops

 

what a bunch of journalistic asswipes.

Between Romney's not conceding when the polls (all of them but one) for weeks before the election had Obama winning, and now this fucking stunt, and the mere fact that they 'rehearsed it' is both a sad state of fox news, but more importantly shows just how dishonest and in denial their lying candidate and the lying journalists that supported Romney.

it feels like we would have been invaded by a bunch of lying half dead white men zombies that would have ushered in a truly horrifying version of 1984 on steroids with the cute white women as their slaves..

Go cry in your boubon boys.. Our boy one so go home and stop spewing that journalistic trash on American TV sets.

5. lol, Maid Megyn demands an explanation from the servants in the king's counting house

Why isn't she in the garden hanging up the clothes til along came a blackbird and pecked off her nose?

Doesn't she understand women's role in a Xtian society?

10. Well, thank goodness that nice gentleman was there to escort her down the steps,

because she might have turned a dainty ankle otherwise.

20. Yes, indeed - she's such a frail thing and can barely make it down the stair.

That's stair, not stairs. One step, maybe two? How on earth does she get up there every day? do they have a special escort for her who also pulls out her desk chair?

15. they tried

this time,but I think they figured that good old-fashioned fraud was a tactic past its use by date and too apparent so they went with suppression and intimidation.More subtle,less effective because the individual and the collective electorate can overcome that with persistence.

9. Pitiful....

It's like an exclusive know-it-all club of whites, looking down their nose, who think "oh we lost.... this will be the end of the country...wink wink. The know-nothing liberal plebs have done it again. tsk tsk tsk..."

11. Perhaps this was all just Fox Kabuki

and the theme of the play was "Sorry Karl, no one is willing to go to jail for you this time."

I have stayed clear of this channel until last night and saw all this play out live, and I must say I was entertained.

13. What a crock.

This was so staged.
Her questions about 2004 was also completely disingenuous as well.

14. This stunt looks so phony and scripted!

Four reasons:

1. They magically have cameras in place to cover her walk down the hallway.

2. The aforementioned "when we practiced this" bit.

3. The lighting in the back room is *way too bright* for actual work, but perfect for TV.

4. The guys doing the counting are all in suit jackets. If it was me working there, there's no way I'd be wearing a jacket.

16. Exactly right..

Your very first point I noticed instantly and was wondering how/why they would have had a camera pre-positioned in front of her if this was such an impromptu action.

Then when she says the "when we practiced this" bit, I said, "ahhh showbiz"
