Bloviating with ‘O-Blame-A’:
Fox News Makes Up for State of the Union Disaster

Fox News Corp. and President Barack Obama have something in common: Both believe their popularity allows them to continue to con their audience.
In the lucrative pretend world that politics and cable television networks play to, the world becomes their oyster.
Last night’s well-touted spar between garrulous O’Reilly and Obama had all the makings of a wrestling match with both wrestlers bouncing rubber-like off the ropes—all show but no headlocks.
If anything, Fox viewers should now seriously consider what Fox is presenting as ‘real news’.
“Prior to the interview, O’Reilly told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that he was “not nervous”.
With presumed questions already submitted and the fix long in, who needs to be nervous when all you have to do is just follow the script?
“He is not a bad guy. I think people misread him,” he said. “However, my interview this time is going to be very precise”. (HuffPost, Feb. 3, 2014).
“He is not a bad guy”? Obama’s the guy that’s inflicting real pain on real people with ObamaCare during the unasked for and unwanted Constitution-killing Fundamental Transformation of America.
And for “However, my interview this time is going to be very precise”. This time? LOL, shouldn’t all interviews be precise?
A very precise question many are now asking about Fox News: Why grant to Obama a pre-Super Bowl ‘interview’ at the end of the same week when only 11% of Americans watched the pathetic State of The Union Address?
Was the only allegedly right-of-center television network helping the president make up for massive SOTU lost opportunity? Was last night’s prime time Obama interview a way for Fox to ensure its future in the cable television network lineup?
Correctly predicting the “lies, lies and more lies”, millions of Americans deliberately tuned out on SOTU, switching channels the moment they saw Barack Obama.
Fox News lives on ratings. Obama lives on low-information voters. Could a deal between both parties have been made to boost their oxygen source?
Canada Free Press (CFP) is “not nervous” to ponder.
Slice it and dice it, but Fox News gave Obama the perfect opportunity of ducking controversies a dysfunctional White House believes have already been settled. What a requiem for the four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, left to die in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Anyone could predict that Obama, who is ringmaster ‘O-blame-a’ when it comes to who’s at fault for what he calls some “boneheaded decisions” from his regime, that the current White House Artful Dodger would blame Fox News for spreading the wrong kind of news.
In ‘O-Blame-A’s’ own words: “These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them.”
Many would argue correctly that the news of the day is spread in equal parts on the masses by both Fox News and the White House.
“They’re coming to take your guns; they’re coming to take you away”...
If Fox News is really “fair and balanced”, why did it grant to Obama an interview that aired before the NFL’s SuperBowl—the most-viewed sports event in the United States of America?
Many who tuned in for the big game were attracted by creative commercials like the Budweiser one where a lovable puppy who can’t stay away from the big boys in the horse barn ends leading the horses back to their stalls.
Meanwhile, Budweiser’s adorable puppy is closer to reality than either bloviating Bill or the made-for-television, suck-’em-in-on-prime-time Barack ‘O-Blame-a’.
