Mother of Man Arrested for Threatening Pelosi Blames ‘really radical’ Fox News

Posted by: Audiegrl

Think Progress.org~Yesterday in San Fransisco, federal agents arrested 48 year-old Gregory Giusti for allegedly threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Giusti “allegedly made dozens of calls to Pelosi’s homes in California and Washington, D.C., as well as her husband’s business office. He allegedly recited her home address and warned that she should not support the healthcare overhaul bill that was recently signed into law if she wanted to see her home again.” Yesterday on San Fransisco’s local ABC affiliate, Giusti’s mother blamed Fox News:

ELEANOR GIUSTI: Greg has — frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with myself or the rest of the family and — which gets him into problems. And apparently I would say this must be another one that somehow he’s gotten onto either by — I’d say Fox News or all of those that are really radical, and he — that’s where he comes from.

Fox Used Footage of Celebrities Without Permission for Palin’s New Show

Posted by: Bluedog89

CNN~Rapper LL Cool J appears to be upset with Sarah Palin and Fox News for using footage of a 2008 interview in its promotion for the former Alaska governor’s upcoming television special.

“Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW,” the musician Tweeted on Tuesday night.

A promotion for the show – called “Real American Stories: Hosted by Sarah Palin” – features an announcer saying, “They’re famous faces. Now hear the real story behind their incredible lives.” In addition to LL Cool J, country music star Toby Keith and former General Electric CEO Jack Welch are pictured.

LL Cool J wasn’t the only one surprised to see that he was part of Sarah Palin’s upcoming Fox News program, “Real American Stories.”

A representative for country star Toby Keith told CNN that she too was unaware that Fox News was using an old interview of Keith’s, conducted sometime in early 2009.

Toby Keith also unknowing participant in Palin's show.

“I had no idea Toby’s interview was going to air on Sarah Palin’s special. I found out after the press release went out and was contacted by a reporter asking about the show,” Keith’s publicist said. “It is an old interview….I was never contacted by Fox requesting permission. I still have not heard from Fox.”

Ed Begley Jr. Flips Out On Fox: Climate Change Is Real (VIDEO)

HP—On Tuesday afternoon on Fox News, actor and environmental activist Ed Begley Jr. got into a heated shouting match with Fox News contributor and substitute Neil Cavuto show host Stuart Varney about the “hacked climate emails.”

The conversation started out civil enough. “Does this change things at all, these emails,” Varney asks Begley. “Do you ever think that maybe you’re wrong about global warming?” The GOP has now opened a probe into the emails, and the Drudge Report is calling the emails “the greatest scandal in modern science.”

Fox News Fact-Checks Sarah Palin’s Coin Conspiracy Theory
This must sting a bit. Sarah Palin’s newest conspiracy theory on the “disturbing” redesign of U.S. coins was too much, even for Fox News — on Tuesday night, Fox fact-checked Palin.

Last Friday, while speaking at a Wisconsin Right to Life fundraising banquet — attendees were barred from bringing cell phones, cameras, laptops — Palin rolled out the latest: an anti-Christian conspiracy in the redesign of U.S. coins. Palin waded into the subject by remarking that there had been a lot of “change” of late — for example, the redesign of U.S. currency which moved the once-centered text “In God We Trust” to the edge of coins.

“Who calls a shot like that?” Palin demanded on Friday. “Who makes a decision like that?”

As Fox News anchor Bret Baier noted: President Bush, that’s who.

Healthcare Reform Bill Passes House – and Fox Nation Erupts With Violent Rhetoric

FOXnation_headerlogoMedialite/News Hounds—Fox News blog-enemy News Hounds has captured some of the online, anonymous commenter vitriol inspired since the House of Representatives passed the health care reform bill last night. On the Fox Nation article “The House Passes Government-Run Health Care,” many of the 3,000+ comments are angry, factually inaccurate and even blood-thirsty — an all too common reality for highly politicized internet content.

Here are some choice samples via News Hounds. Fox Nation readers seem to be chasing their own tails in frustration – and have completely left the realm of sanity and entered the dark, eerie, evil David-Koresh-type world.

Where the hell are the Fox Nation moderators?
