Fox News is number one in cable news. But what does that mean. I believe it reflects a very real fact about Americans; a SIGNIFICANT number of us are stupid. Australian Rupert Murdock knows it. Roger Ailes knows it, and I know it.

The media gauntlet against 3rd party candidates is nearly impenetrable. Of the many independent and 3rd party candidates who run for President every year, I remember only Ross Perot, Ralph Nader and maybe whats-his-name-Forbes getting ANY media coverage.
As the current two-party political system begins to deteriorate and things like Occupy Wall Street go from full media blackout to 24/7 coverage, it should surprise no one that Rocky’s bid for US President IS getting significant media attention.
Rocky will accept the nomination of the Justice Party for U.S. President at the Olpin Theater on the U of U campus today at 1:00pm. (Google Map)
Come see the Justice Party born here in your own back yard. Someday you’ll be able to say you were there.
If you can’t make it (on such short notice), please show some love with small donation.

Fox disgusts me. Obama should have walked out. His adept handling of Baier reflected a lifetime of experience dealing with White folks who can’t muster an ounce of respect for a Black man of superior intelligence and authority.
Fox News’ Bret Baier interrupted President Obama so many times during Wednesday’s interview that Newsweek described the encounter as a “interrupt-a-thon.” – Huffington Post
I remember eight long years of listening to Hannity, O’Reilly et. al. tell us how unpatriotic is to show disrespect for the President of the United States.
It’s not very often that I can give Kudos to the “main-stream media” but for this I must. The Obama administration, who has become increasing intolerant of criticism, tried to get Fox News excluded from the White House Press Pool. This after Mao admirer “communication czar” Anita Dunn, along with David Axelrod, and Rahm Emanuel claimed that Fox News is not a “real’ news organization. Anita Dunn even went as far as saying on CNN that fox isn’t real news like CNN.
Read story on Fox news.
If I were a news organization I would be embarrassed about getting the approval of any administration official no matter who is President. Apparently they were a little embarrassed and when the White House tried to get Fox News blacklisted it was simply the bridge too far. The water got just too heavy to carry and the tank got too full of you know what for the mainstream media to stand it any longer. In a rare show of journalistic solidarity all members of the White House Press Pool told the most thin skinned administration since Nixon they will not interview any further Obama officials if they exclude Fox News.
Does this mean the mainstream media will begin to honestly cover the Obama administration? probably not but it’s a good start.
With Obama it’s if you can’t say anything nice you can’t say anything at all.

I would like to ask how many people at oneutah.org had ever heard of the ACORN scandal, or ACORN for that matter, till I brought it up? This shows just how pathetic the so called “mainstream” media has become. It is why they are dying Dinosaurs while alternative media such as Fox News, blogs, talk radio and the international press are flourishing. It’s sad when you get more news from the foreign press than the so called free press of the United States.
The Constitution specifically enumerates Freedom of the Press because they are supposed to be the watchdogs of the government, not its cheerleaders. So much of the press have allowed the government and private interests, including big business, to dictate what it prints. The press should be wildly critical and skeptical and hold all politicians, special interests, and business’ feet to the fire. That is why the founders wanted a free press because they knew the dangers of a government controlled press.
There was a time when reporters worked hard to investigate a story to get the scoop. Now they simply regurgitate the faxes and press releases from the very organizations they are covering. If the mainstream media did their jobs the two heroes that posed as pimp and prostitute wouldn’t have had to because ACORN would have been exposed long ago by eager reporters.
Media scrutiny keeps honest people honest and keeps dishonest people at bay, while lack of scrutiny allows corruption to flourish. Corruption is what turns a first world country into a third world country.
Welcome to an America of your (Republicans) choosing.
See if you can guess which one.

This is why we love Rocky. The contrast between Rocky and Bill was palatable. Bill seemed so small and helpless.
There does not need to be a demonstrable crime to impeach the president of the United States. Apparently Bill thinks there does.
I almost choked when Bill said in disagreement:
I think I know more than you do about American history and the Constitution.
Rocky of course was an ACLU legal eagle.

Rocky says: Do you just have guests on your show so you can hear yourself talk? …You invite guests on to call them names?
After the segment, O’Reilly engaged Fox’s Senior Judicial Analyst, a thoroughly discredited (by the National Review nonetheless) former NJ State Judge, Andrew Napolitano for a little moral support after the spanking Rocky gave O’Reilly for his ignorance on the Constitution.
