Those Fox Fucks Are At It Again...

Every now and then I check the Fox News website. I know, I know, they're evil. I like to see what they're cooking up. At 2:00 Wed., 9/20/06, the top headline read "Chavez: U.S. Empire 'Will be finished in near future'. Venezuelan boss calls President Bush 'the devil'" accompanied by the picture above. Notice the book he's holding. It's "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance", by Noam Chomsky. I have read Chomsky and seen him in interviews and debates. He's a smart cookie. This is the only time you're going to see Chomsky's name on Fox News. God knows they'd never interview him. He'd rip them apart. Fox knows what they're doing here. They didn't have to use a picture of him holding this book. They're saying to their idiot audience, "Hey, look, this madman is reading Chomsky. You don't want to read the same things as him, do you? He called our president 'the devil'." Man, I sure do love the anti-intellectualism in this country. Fuck.

Right on the money Chris, you nailed it!

So much gets lost in translation. Chavez was actually commenting on how much our President looks like the Tasmanian Devil.

I always thought those UN translators were a bit sketchy...

Why bother, Fox "News"? It's not like your followers were THINKING about reading some Chomsky.

I love Noam Chomsky; he's sexy.

It's hard to tell who they'd like to discredit more, Chavez or Chomsky?

Chris said...

Skylers dad-Thanks. Nice to have you on board.
Frank-He's got about the same intellect as Taz as well.
Megan-You're probably right. I doubt Fox News viewers THINK about reading at all. Zing!
Flannery-Even more than Rummy?
Vikki-I think they'd like to discredit all that disagree with Herr Bush. They've got their work cut out for them.

Perish the thought. I've never found the Rum sexy. Not even one little bit. At one time, I found his braggadocio refreshing. But sexy? No. Obviously, the people at People were high.

It's good to know your enemies and what they're up to. Gawd, Fox News makes me throw up a little in my mouth ...

And I second Flannery Alden's comment.

that's just one o' the reasons no one's ever HEARD of Chomsky. If they DID, they might start THINKING and then our leaders would be run out on a rail.
