With slightly less makeup than Tammy Faye Baker her wide angry eyes look at the camera and then her guest. She asks him if he has ever watched FOX News programs and before he can answer she claims she watches every day and they never make Nazi references, like he claimed, when talking about the Left. Jon Stewart then airs many of the Nazi references made on FOX: including on her program.
Megyn Kelly lied.
And she knows it.
Nothing new. FOX has a habit of airing the most offensive, the most libelous, the most slanderous filth ever aired on TV. That's true whether it be entertainment or what they laughingly refer to as news. But Megyn Kelly is a special case even amongst all this vile propaganda, tin foiled hat conspiracy theories that benefit only the Right and slimy septic sludge that pours out of the mouth of the likes of Hannity, Beck and O'Reilly. O'Reilly specializes in angry finger point accusations that he won't allow the accused to answer without interrupting with more accusations and even more name calling. Glen Beck specializes in wild conspiracy theories that make no Jewish Holocaust and fake moon landers seem almost sane in comparison. Once again: they all benefit the Right. And Hannity is just as nasty as he can be. It's as if someone reincarnated The Stooges and forced them to do their act as if they were partisans of the most putrid kind.
I understand. It's entertainment, entertainment on the level of wild animals eating the Christians, with an extra juicy irony: the beasts claim to actually be Christians as they do anything they can to hold head ripping, crotch chewing, court over anyone who dares to disagree with them.
OK, it's entertainment. Entertainment on the same level as the wrestlers on Friday night Smackdown. Like what some dare refer to as "wrestling," the damn shame is that there are those out there who think it's real.
And part of the "entertainment" with Ms. Kelly, whose face to me is a grotesque mask that contorts in sickening sarcastic mirth and rage, is supposedly her being some kind of sex object from what I gather. I don't understand it. Really. I don't. Given a choice between her and Sarah Palin, I think I'd rather become a eunuch.
But Kelly is in a different category. She supposed to be a journalist, a "news" anchor, but she acts like neither. She shouldn't be out there lying about content: especially content on her own damn show.
A few years ago a high profile anchor, Dan Rather, lost his job because a document he based a segment on wasn't the original document: had a different font. The secretary who typed that damn thing said the content was right, it just wasn't the original document.
If Dan Rather loses his job over telling the truth with a document whose only fault was that the font was different from the original, shouldn't FOX "News" toss Kelly out the door, landing hopefully quite hard on her ugly little ass? But, instead, Ms. Kelly only further proves that "FOX 'News'" is an oxymoron.
Not that we didn't know that already.
