The Fox News "Fear and Smear" Mantra

It's long been known to anyone with half a brain that Fox News and their comrades manipulate and distort facts solely for financial and political gain. When there aren’t any facts to twist, Fox News and Co. will just make them up, as needed. I read an interesting article on the Long History of Race-Baiting at Fox News which helped spur my writing today.

Many of us get our news from a variety of outlets: radio, TV, internet, newspapers, and magazines. All of which, at some point, have spelled out in explicit detail the blatant accounts of the lying liars at Fox News. These hosts include, but not limited to: Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Glenn Beck. We should add Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh because they are certainly not exempt here. Also, let’s not forget to include Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes themselves. They are, after all, the masterminds behind the "Fear and Smear" mantra at Fox News.

SOW: LIVE Energy Town Hall - Watch It Tonight!

Watch The Town Hall right here at The Liberal Lunch Live Tonight at 8PM/7PM CT

As a follow up to my HuffPo entry yesterday, President Obama: Cheap Oil = Cheap Excuses, I ask you to join us tonight for a special Live streaming town hall panel at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CST on the topic of energy with Boone Pickens (Oil Tycoon & Founder, BP Capital Management), James Woolsey (Former CIA Director), Bob Deans (Associate Director of Communications – Natural Resources Defense Council) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). The dual crisis in Japan and the Mideast has made it clear to that Washington has failed for decades to set energy policy right and it is now up to us, the American People, to lead a discussion on the importance of energy independence in America.
I, for one, am deeply concerned about not only our future energy sources but also our current dependence on oil and nuclear energy, both of which have a proven record of climate destruction and little concern for human safety. I will be watching this town hall tonight, and I hope you will join.
