Fox News hosts whine at ’60 Minutes’ for ‘no follow up’ on Hillary concussion conspiracy (via Raw Story )

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Monday lashed out at 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft because he failed to devote a significant part of his Sunday interview with President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to “follow up” on the suggestion that the secretary may have not told…

    Do those guys over at FOX ever get tired of just getting it wrong all the time?

    Apparently not.

    Always Rong!!1! is actually their business model.

    There was a Google News headline earlier today that read: “President Obama vs. Fox News” – Fox news.

    If you follow the link all you’ll get is a dead page with a non-working video with the by-line “Donald Trump weighs in”. It seems that Fox News has finally embarrassed itself… Too Funny.

    So Fox was saying “give us times,dates,places,medical reports etc. to prove she wasn’t faking it”.
    The host had a perfectly great opportunity to grill her for their satisfaction…and he didn’t take it. What BAD reporting.

    Their whole function is to keep the seeds of doubt alive in the moronic viewing audience, and insinuate a “conspiracy” about the 2016 elections. I doubt anyone at Fox even believes their own accusations, but are getting paid big bucks to keep the far right churned up.

    “Fox & Friends” criticizes the journalism of “60 Minutes?”

    That’s like “TMZ” questioning the integrity of “Entertainment Tonight.”

    That’s like the Weekly World News slamming the reporting of the New York Times.

    That’s like Donald Trump telling Warren Buffet how to make money.

    The possibilities are endless…feel free to add your own!

    Fox and Friends is the gutter of Fox News…and that is sayin something.

    Oh my! It took awhile for me to understand what these people are doing on a daily basis….Modern secular trance brought on by fear and modern technology…every day they do an induction and then begin to sway, just the mention of Hilary is enough to bring them out of their chairs into the trance dance..

    Wier, in his 1995 book, Trance: from magic to technology, defines a simple trance (p. 58) as being caused by cognitive loops where a cognitive object (thoughts, images, sounds, intentional actions) repeats long enough to result in various sets of disabled cognitive functions. Wier represents all trances (which include sleep and watching television) as a dissociated trance plane where at least some cognitive functions are disabled such as volition but not consciousness within the trance typically termed hypnosis.

    Either splash them with water or call a good witchdoctor to help them break the trance…

    Maybe the partisan dances are more trance than truth based?….

    I never watch this show, however I think they are playing around because HC has a history of, um, filtering events to her advantage. I do watch Bill O’Reily alternating with A. Cooper. B.O. has always said he believed HC on the concussion.
    Carlson, as you can see was not going along with the “boys” on this.
    Mole-hill story, bottom line.

    “That’s like Donald Trump telling Warren Buffet how to make money”

    More like Donald Trump giving hair care advice to David Hasslehoff. The Donald is actually pretty good at making money.

    I think you’re on to something there. A good ice water swim maybe…

    One thing about you guys, you sure can tell spoofing when you hear it. :-)

    The Donald is actually pretty good at making money.

    I’ve seen it written that he actually has less money now than he inherited from his father. I don’t know if that’s true, and I’m not sufficiently interested in him to care.
