My husband was flipping channels a bit ago and stopped at Fox new when they were showing a clip of Howard Dean at Democracyfest, where Dean made a remark that if the Dems were in control we wouldn't be in this mess. So O'Reilly shows this clip and goes off about how awful it is that Dean didn't give any details about how the Dems would have done a better job, and the Dems have no ideas, etc. The usual b.s.

Of course, O'Reilly gives no context to the speaking event. Why would Dean stand there and tell us what we already know at what was primarily a social event? He just used an out of context video clip, to blow a little hot air. What an ass.

I spent some time this weekend with a women who was one of the group of women that did the research for Robert Greenwald's movie Outfoxed. They each took shifts and watched five hours of Fox News a day (and read the website) and documented everything they said. Then the info was used to write a book called Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O'Reilly, and started a website called News Hounds. They post articles from Fox and they respond with the fact of the matter. She was pretty darn funny. You'd have to have a good sense of humor to watch that much Fox News and not lose your mind.
