Fox News mole hired by Gawker. Oh this ought to be good!

Courtesy of Gawker:

 I work at Fox News Channel. 

The final straw for me came last year. Oddly, it wasn't anything on TV that turned me rogue, though plenty of things on our air had pushed me in that direction over the years. But what finally broke me was a story on The Fox Nation. If you're not a frequenter of Fox Nation (and if you're reading Gawker, it's a pretty safe bet you're not) I can describe it for you — it's like an unholy mashup of the Drudge Report, the Huffington Post and a Klan meeting. Word around the office is that the site was actually the brainchild of Bill O'Reilly's chief stalker (and Gawker pal) Jesse Watters. 

The Nation aggregates news stories, gives them provocative headlines, and invites commenters to weigh in. The comments are fascinating actually, if you can detach yourself enough to view them as sort of the id of the conservative movement. Of course, if you can't detach yourself, then you're going to come away with a diminished view of human decency, because HOLY MOLY THESE PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE THE BLACK PRESIDENT. I'm not saying they dislike him BECAUSE he's black, but a lot of the comments, unprompted, mention the fact that he is black, so what would you say, Dr. Freud? 

The Fox Nation moderators, realizing that they had a problem on their hands, did the absolute bare minimum, hiring one or two college kids to comb the comments for the most egregiously racist postings, and putting in automatic text filters that blocked various key words. Of course the intrepid commenters quickly found ways around these filters using letter substitutions and spacings, which is why many comments complain about our "n@gger president" and the "M u s l i m in the White House."

Hmm, I wonder if THIS news is worth a few new dings in a certain refrigerator, in a house with stolen windows, located on a dead lake? I'll bet it is!

    OMG! That video is so unbelievable. Talk about a snob! What a wooden mannequin of a man!

    House with stolen windows? WTF?

    1. Anonymous7:06 AM

      I didn't see anything about window, etc. Where is that one?

      He's not talking about the video there, he's talking about the Palin's house which suspiciously uses the exact same materials as the Wasilla sports-plex that She championed and got Wasilla in massive debt builiding.

      The windows and second floor railings in particular are oddly identical to the sports-plex.

      You know, the house she claims "Todd and his buddies" built.

      My guess is that the construction company that "won" the bid was VERY grateful for the millions she sent their way.

      Todd and Sarah stole building materials from when they were building the sports complex or whatever it was in Wasilla and used it on their own house. You didn't know that? I don't blame you. It's hard to keep up with all of the Palins' illegal activities.

    windows, doors, rails, steps, probably a toilet or two, all on lucy lake

    Can't wait to hear how much the Fox Personalities hate Sarah Palin (except Hannity who might be the world's biggest ass).

    Here's what I want someone defecting from Fox to broadcast to America: that Palin reads off an Autoscript teleprompter loaded with all the questions and answers for her "interviews."

    This could be really fun. I am stocking up on popcorn.

    Hannity would be eaten alive outside the conservative bubble.

    Check that, he's probably looked down upon by conservatives, but wildly embraced by the whack-job righty fringe.

    it is funny how they "filter" comments, I have been filtered for saying positive things on their website. I also was filtered for pointing out that it is crazy to hate people for the way they vote (aka liberals). I was also filtered for saying that many of our politicians are bought and paid for by large corporations.

    My point, they really don't filter out hate instead they filter out reasonable discussions. They like to promote strife. And many of their listeners need to seek professional help!

    WELL, DAMN! Busted.

    watch the new video

    I love it. Wonder if it's Tucker Carlton?

    Someone needs to take them down, especially after Hannity defended zimmerman and talked to him.

    1. Anonymous7:05 AM

      Hannity is a white supremacist. If he could he would wear his white sheet and hood on the air.

    2. Anonymous7:07 AM

      Yes, they hate the President BECAUSE he is Black. NO doubt in my mind.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
