The Beginning of the End for the Faux “News” Slimepit?


    We can only hope.

    For years now, Faux “News” has been an utter slimepit of hatred, viciousness, and bigotry, by the likes of modern-day Father Coughlin figure Glenn Beck, hatemonger Sean Hannity, and other assorted rabble. Now, we’ve got the exploding scandal over Faux owner Rupert Murdoch’s absolute lack of ethics, and probably legality, in his pursuit of the “news” (aka, “lots and lots of money for Rupert Murdoch”).

    Speaking of which, don’t you just love how the supposed “fair and balanced,” “we report/you decide” people get their “news?” Also, don’t you just love how these “family values” folks treated actual flesh-and-blood families, including those of a murder victim, of 2005 London bombing victims, of the families of dead British soldiers (so much for conservatives caring about “the troops!”), possibly even of 9/11 victims? Do these people have any shame at all?  Yes, that last question was rhetorical.
