Conspiracy freaks on Fox News worry that NBC’s benefit for Sandy victims is a plot to boost Obama

There’s no end to the political paranoia among THESE PEOPLE:

“Fox and Friends” questioned NBC’s upcoming fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy on Friday morning, wondering aloud whether it was putting the event on merely to help President Obama.

The benefit, “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together,” will air on Friday night, and features performances by Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Christina Aguilera and Billy Joel, among others. The televised benefit concert has become a staple of post-disaster relief efforts. But “Fox and Friends” smelled a rat, since the concert is airing so close to the presidential election.

“Good intention, raise some money for victims, but the timing is more than suspect,” guest host Eric Bolling said. “Is this more political? Is this more, let’s get this thing on TV before the election to help President Obama look more presidential? Or is it more to help out victims?”

“It does look like they’re trying to squeeze it in,” Steve Doocy agreed. He then noted that Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen are avowed Obama supporters (they are also New Jersey musical icons, of course).

“Where are the conservative performers?” Doocy asked. “How’s NBC going to control what people say?”

  1. The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won’t budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-fox-news-scylla-guardian-of-bullsht.html

  2. That’s all really scary Brandt. ( By the way, how are you going to sell your mediocre art after the election?).

    If all youu said about Fox News is true, what possible fun can you have in store for MSNBC?

    ON MSNBC, the ratio of negative to positive stories on GOP candidate Mitt Romney was 71 to 3.

    That’s not a news channel. That’s a propaganda machine, and owner Comcast should probably change Phil Griffin’s title from president to high minister of information, or something equally befitting the work of a party propaganist hack in a totalitarian regime. You wonder how mainstream news organizations allow their reporters and corrdespondents to appear in such a cauldron of bias.

    I thought show host Sean Hannity of Fox News defined party propagandist. But while his channel was bad, it wasn’t as bad-boy biased as MSNBC.

    The ratio of negative to positive stories in Fox’s coverage of President Obama was 46 to 6.

    Check out the full Pew study here. It’s a good one, and there is much food for thought in its findings as we approach the end of an election cycle marked by poor media performance.
