The Rude Pundit: Elizabeth Warren Tells Fox "News" to Go Fuck Itself with Roger Ailes's Femur

Elizabeth Warren Tells Fox "News" to Go Fuck Itself with Roger Ailes's Femur


Fuck yeah, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is running for president, just went to war with Fox "news." In a series of tweets, Warren told Fox to get the fuck away from her with this town hall bullshit. Apparently, Fox invited her to appear on their network of the damned and Sean Hannity, and she declined, explaining, "Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class."

snip//

It's about goddamn time one of the Democratic candidates stopped with this whole bullshit idea that they have to "reach" Fox "news" viewers. It turns Fox into the de facto spokesdicks for the mythical "White Working Class," a group that is so much more than Fox-infected assholes (and is also far, far bigger once you remove "white" from the name). And Warren's rejection of Fox turns a spotlight on the "news" network's efforts at stupiding their viewers with a nonstop fecal flow of fear and fuckery. Maybe Kirsten Gillibrand and Pete Buttigieg will back out of their scheduled appearances.

Essentially, Warren just declared war on Fox "news." She went far, far further than just declining the town hall. She went for the throat, naming evil where she sees evil. Warren dug up the rotted whale carcass of Roger Ailes, ripped out his femur, and started fucking Tucker Carlson's ass with it.

Look for Fox to react furiously, as Fox will do, likely calling her everything from "Pocahontas" to "Emma Goldman" (actually, Emma Goldman doesn't have a Disney cartoon, so Fox viewers wouldn't understand it). They'll make her seem like Stalin has been reincarnated and that Warren and AOC are gonna be forcing you to eat organic dirt to stay alive while Rashida Tlaib ululates in your ears.

But Warren wouldn't have started this if she didn't know what she was getting into. She could have politely declined and moved on. This is a war she wants. This shows she knows that you have to kill the troll if you want everyone to be able to cross the bridge.

why give Fox legitimacy to their claim of being fair and balanced. That is the furthest thing from what they are. Fox viewers wouldn't change from being trumpsters anyway.

11. A President does not have to govern for a TV channel.

 

Citizens are free to choose what they watch. A president does not have to underwrite those choices. Some not doubt get their news from RT. A President does not have to legitimise that choice..

On the other hand, a candidate or elected official will make up their own minds. Senator Warren has expressed herself magnificently. Mayor Pete will put his case quite forcefully as well. The lost sheep, or something like that I guess.

21. Not sure if you are serious

 

..but I think most of us would prefer some level of compromise and sense.

But that's kind of the point. Fox News does not advocate for compromise and sense. They advocate for the exact opposite - hyper partisan conservative politics. The more hyper partisan the better.

In fact, you could probably draw a direct correlation from the beginning of Fox News (when such things such as compromise actually existed) to today's current dysfunctional state in which compromise is seemingly impossible. Donald Trump is President. Mitch McConnell leads the Senate. There will be no coming together on any issue with this current alignment.

Fox News and other RW media are greatly responsible for what we are now seeing. Why feed that beast? They can't be reasoned with at this point.

She has no issue with reaching out to Fox’s audience. She just doesn’t want to do it via Fox. Excellent take on that here from Charles Pierce:

10. This is exactly the 1-2 punch I hope for throughout the Primary campaign.

 

I'm pulling for Warren for this and many other reasons, but am also thrilled that Bernie is out there doing his thing. The two of them approached their respective Fox News Town Hall opportunities differently, but I think that they both made wise choices.

Bernie handled himself on Fox admirably, and made notable inroads to Fox News viewers. That may become some important leverage if he endorses another Democratic candidate (I doubt Bernie will clinch the nomination) or perhaps as he campaigns in the General Election if he happens to be the nominee. But Warren did her own thing, and she is not the least bit wrong in her choice. Fox has corroded our Republic for decades, and Elizabeth Warren is the perfect candidate to tell them what for...

I hope that they both keep up their good fights.

k&r,

Especially in light of WH efforts now to make them official state media.
Sean Hannity and co. can just drown in the vortex of hate and greed they're spinning, they're losing their audience to the nursing homes by the droves, I'd rejoice at the day their worst fraudsters join Alex Jones as loser bets for advertisers and end up hawking "bone broth" to keep up their drivel.

Cetaceans are intelligent and noble creatures, traits that are sadly lacking with the codger.

deranged donnie and bill barf are being depicted as Jabba the Hut by cartoonists, and Ailes matched that physique as well.

Eric Swalwell regularly appears on Fox, and he's still polling at 0%.

He's not yet presidential material and will make a much stronger mark in the House -- and maybe, the Senate, after Kamala goes to Washington as Joe's VP -- and should cool his heels for a while.

But Rude hit it out of the park in closing about Elizabeth's war on Fox with words that should be heeded by every Der candidate:

She could have politely declined and moved on. This is a war she wants. This shows she knows that you have to kill the troll if you want everyone to be able to cross the bridge.
