Default 'Fox and Friends' accuses NBC of using hurricane benefit concert to boost Obama

http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/11/02/fo...e-sandy-obama/

Fox News is rooting for the continued suffering of people in the wake of Sandy because they say the telethon might help Obama... not surprising at all.

Part and parcel of the overall Repub plan to make things as bad as possible for voters and blame it all on Obama.

Doom and gloom is all that the Repubs have left to influence the voting public into seeing things their way.

Sad.

Oh that Faux. What a love/hate relationship.
You got to love em for the outrageous crazy reporting/reporters, yet never set too close to the tv set. Guarantee permeant brain damage.

The closest comparison I can think of was the old Jim Bakker/Tammy Faye show.
It was so awful, you couldn't resist watching simply out of disbelief.

Just like watching a train wreck unfold right in front of your eyes. Just like watching the Three Stooges beat themselves silly while attempting to service a car at a gas station they work at. Just like watching Jan Brewer waving an accusing finger inches away from Pres. Obama's face. Just like watching Limbaugh accuse Sandra Fluke of being a slut and a prostitute. Just like watching a WWE pro wrestling match and interviews. Just like watching a whole bunch of clowns exit out of a micro mini-car in a three ring circus. It's a combinaton of satisfying one's morbid curiosity and being comically relieved all at the same time.

Pretty much. The fact is many of us here love Fox news and we shouldn't deny it, for the reason you mention. It has at least three threads on the front page now.

Fox isn't even trying to hide it any more. There was a benefit concert 4 days after Katrina too. I'll bet they didn't discuss that either.

Is this the first disaster relief concert ever televised?

This is where we are at a country. Everything is politicized. "where were the conservative entertainers". I'm sure the people suffering could care less about who helped raise the money.

The entertainers were New Yorkers. Can't be that much of a shock to Fox that they aren't conservatives.
