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?

Faux News Adopts the GOP Mantra: ‘Where are the jobs?

Posted by TheLCster

FoxNewsRNC_ThinkProgress/Pat Garofalo—Fox News has been pushing back on White House Communications Director Anita Dunn’s assertion that the network is “a wing of the Republican Party” by arguing that “its news hours — 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on weekdays — are objective.” Fox Political Analyst Brit Hume added that “if Fox News really were a GOP mouthpiece, the White House would not be attacking it.” However, Fox’s “objective” news hosts have literally served as the GOP “communications arm” when discussing the economic stimulus package and job creation. In July, House Republicans took to the floor to repeat the mantra “where are the jobs?” And Fox’s anchors, led by America’s Newsroom co-host Bill Hemmer, have adopted the phrase as their own, repeating it over and over on their “news” shows.

I wish that this was a snark, or something out of Orly Taitz’ feverish dreams, but unfortunately its not. For those of you that stay up to watch late night TV, don’t be surprised if you see this infomercial, or maybe we should call it a ‘birthermercial’.

TPMMuckraker/Justin Elliott—A new birther infomercial running on a CBS affiliate in Texas and elsewhere around the country tells viewers a “got a birth certificate?” bumper sticker can be theirs for the low price of $30.

The 28-minute program — quite possibly the first ever birthermercial — features community access production values, heavy use of foreboding strings soundtrack, and standard-issue Birther ideology.

For a $30 contribution, viewers also get a fax sent in their name to the 50 state attorneys general and Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that President Obama produce his real birth certificate.

Here’s a clip of the first five minutes of the program:
