Why Isn’t Fox News Covering Florida “Voter Fraud” Story? Hint: It Involves The GOP | Blog | Media Matters for America

justinspoliticalcorner:

For years ago Fox News helped turn ACORN into a dirty word among conservatives by leading an often-hysterical right-wing crusade against the community activist group, charging it time and again with “voter fraud” on behalf of candidate Obama. In order to bloster its flimsy “voter fraud” attacks, the network repeatedly harped on reports that ACORN canvassers had submitted questionable voter registration forms.

Yet this week Fox has shown virtually no interest in covering the unfolding story out of Florida, where the state’s Republican Party has cut ties with a consulting firm accused of handing in more than 100 dubious voter registration forms.

Note that in the unfolding Florida story, the firm in question was paid directly by the Republican Party and is accused of ACORN-like activities. But at Fox News, it’s crickets.

In fact this morning, Brian Kilmeade hosted a Fox & Friends panel discussion about voter fraud. In 2008, the allegation that ACORN submitted questionable registration forms was routinely referred to and condemned as “voter fraud” on Fox. (To this day, Fox treats misaddressed voter registration forms as “fraud.”) But this morning, Kilmeade and his guests made no mention of the fact that the Republican Party was just forced to fire a consulting firm for submitting potentially bogus voter registration forms; forms being reviewed by local law enforcement.

The DNC releases a tough video highlighting inappropriate cheering during the Republican presidential debates and notes none of the candidates said anything.

Not One Candidate“  video showcases the divisive party of hate.

Of course they wouldn’t try to call for civility, the current Republican party is dependent on incivility. These candidates are actively courting those who would boo a gay soldier or call for the death of the uninsured.

Should we be surprised, frightened, disgusted or simply say ‘we knew it’, that in the informal mixer just after Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Perry spoke at a Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford, NH, an unknown gentlemen approached a casual Perry like an Ian Fleming character, and proceeded to say, ‘Bank of America… we will help you out,’ and silently moved on. At least we know now who is funding what, and whose interests potential future president Perry will be paid to defend.

- Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com

Fast forward to precisely 40 minutes into the clip below.

The “unknown gentleman” has been identified as James Mahoney, Director of Public Policy for Bank of America.

And yes, that’s the same Bank of America we taxpayers bailed out with Bush’s TARP program in October ‘08.

For the first time, according to CNN, most Americans don’t agree that their own member of Congess deserves reelection. Only 41 percent of those polled said that their lawmaker deserves another term, 49 percent disagreed. While this is at odds with a recent Gallup poll on the same question – 54 percent say that their lawmaker deserves reelection, as opposed to 34 percent who disagree – it is in line with polls that show deep disapproval with Congress. For instance, in the latest CBS/New York Times poll, a scant 14 percent of Americans approve of the way Congress is doing its job.

Guess who hates the Republican party? Answer: EVERYONE.

TAKE “OUR” COUNTRY BACK FROM “THEM”

arewepayingattention:

Take back America.  Take it back from whom?

Gosh, I thought liberals and people of color and Muslim Americans and Democrats and feminists and gay people and union members and public school teachers and single mothers and environmentalists and maybe even some atheists were Americans, too.   And I thought the rights of all Americans were protected by the Constitution.

That’s not how the GOP’s and FOX’s Angry White People see it.  Nor the right-wing corporate billionaires who fund these Angry White People.  And sadly, the media — upon whom we depend for our public discourse — can’t seem to distinguish between our real patriots and the self-proclaimed patriots who assault our liberties. 

This is not good.  In fact, it’s dangerous.
