Mea Culpa: Fox News Keeps Making Conservative-Friendly Mistakes

From Daily Finance:
Every news organization makes mistakes. But when Fox News makes mistakes, they seem to tilt in a suspiciously consistent direction, favoring Republicans and conservatives over Democrats and liberals. It happened again Wednesday, when host Gregg Jarrett, introducing a segment on Happening Now, described the "huge crowds" that were turning out to greet Sarah Palin on the promotional tour for her book, Going Rogue. "These are some of the pictures just coming into us," Jarrett said as images of Palin surrounded by throngs of supporters flashed across the screen. While Palin may indeed be drawing big crowds, it didn't take long for liberal watchdog blogs like Think Progress and Media Matters to point out that the masses Jarrett touted on Happening Now had nothing to do with Palin's book...

To The White House and Beyond: Palin/Beck 2012!

PalinBeckForget what the Mayans say, magnetic pole reversal, or solar flares for 2012. If these two horsemen of the Apocalypse join forces to take the White House in 2012, the end is near…

Chris Good writes on the Atlantic:

Don’t rule it out, because apparently Palin wouldn’t either in an interview with Newsmax:

Palin initially chuckled when Newsmax broached the idea. But then she had some serious words of praise for the popular Fox personality.

“I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I’m not there yet,” Palin tells Newsmax. “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he’s so bold — I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective.”

This is an interesting thing to think about.

Lots of coverage of NASA deciding it had to debunk the more apocalyptic 2012 theories. The SFGate decided to excerpt some of the Q&A, ending with this:

So what you’re saying is …

“Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012 … scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.”

There you have it. No calamities expected in 2012. What could possibly go wrong in an election year?

Transcript of the Forthcoming Sean Hannity/Sarah Palin interview

On the firstchurchofmutterhals blog:

Don’t say I never gave you nothing. Guess who got her hot little hands on the Sean Hannity/Sarah Palin interview that hasn’t even happened yet? Don’t tell anyone, but back in the 80s I gave a lap dance to Stephen Hawking and as a reward for my sultry moves he offered me use of his time machine. Behold!

Sean Hannity: First of all I’d like to say that you are the second coming of Christ.

Sarah Palin: Oh gee thanks, it’s citizens like you that make me proud of this our land of freedom and bravery in the country we call the American States.

SH: If the Virgin Mary walked into this room and shat in the corner, it would not rival the profundity and pureness of your being. I would allow myself to be buried alive with your corpse, if my producer deemed it necessary…

Sarah Palin Booed at Rangers/Flyers Game

NOTE: Political views aside…Philly fans need no reason to boo. But throw in this tidbit from the Philly Inquirer about Palin readying for a jog through Philly’s Center City with a NY Rangers’ jersey on, well it gives you the idea that the maybe-next VP is not a real stickler for details.

Philadelphia Inquirer

You never know where you are going to find a political scoop, but Lynn Zinser at her NYT hockey “Slapshot” posted first that Sarah Palin, in her much-ballyhooed appearance dropping the puck at the Philly Flyers’ opener, was greeted by “resounding (almost deafening) boos from the Flyers crowd.”

Fox Sports observed on its site, “The crowd reacted with a mixture of cheers and boos at her appearance.” AP also detected a “mixture” of cheers and boos.
