Fox News

Fox News Story Time


The first of the live televised January 6 Committee hearings will air tonight at 8 p.m. You can watch it on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, C-Span, and even Fox Business. Fox News is sticking to its regular line up of Fucknut One at 8 p.m, Fucknut Two at 9 p.m, and Fucknut Three at 10 p.m.

Fox News does plan to cover the hearings during TuckerHannityIngraham time as “news warrants.” What that means is producers will be watching the hearings and writing material of it for the anchors to be outraged over on the air. Fox News will have a special on the hearings at 10 p.m. which will gaslight the hearings to their viewers who didn’t watch them.

Fox News will not air the hearings for three reasons. Reason one is that they get the highest ratings with their usual primetime lineup. Sure, it’s all white nationalist propaganda delivered by a bunch of lying bastards, but they get viewers. Sure, most of those viewers are Nazis, but Neilsen Ratings count Nazis. Nazis buy Balance of Nature and MyPillows.

The second reason they won’t air the hearings is that they can’t let their viewers make up their own minds. Fox News can’t let its viewers watch the facts play out. Fox News has to gaslight the issues for their viewers. If you’re a Cletus, it’s easier to be told what to think than it is to develop your own thoughts.

The third reason Fox News won’t air the hearings live is that it would probably piss off their white nationalist audience that’s mostly made of sycophantic MAGAts. Fox News doesn’t want to air evidence against Proud Boys and Oathkeepers when their audience consists of Proud Boys and Oathkeepers. Their viewers don’t want to spend two hours hearing how Trump is a traitor to the United States. They’ll change the channel to Newsmax or One American News before hearing that stuff. They would just stick their fingers in their ears and go “la la la la la” for two straight hours, but they’d forget the words. Cletus will send Ella-Mae on top of the trailer to rearrange the antennae. She doesn’t need shoes for that.

So what will Fox News talk about tonight? Maybe they’ll do a segment on how nobody should listen to a celebrity like Matthew McConaughey talk about politics right before they advertise Tucker’s upcoming special on Kid Rock (this is a real thing).

Maybe they’ll talk about the assistant principal fired in Mississippi for reading to children the book “I want a new butt.” Maybe they’ll talk about the most dangerous thing making its way into schools today and threatening children, Drag Queen Story Time.

They’ll probably talk about the migrant caravan heading this way through Mexico. Remember during the 2018 midterms when it was all Fox News and Trump would talk about? They claimed George Soros was funding it. It was the most dangerous threat to this nation since Obama’s tan suit. It was so dangerous that Fox News stopped talking about it the day after the election.

The surest bet is that Fox News will do tonight what they do every night, and that is deliver propaganda over news.

Most news outlets are businesses that seek profits, but most of them understand they still have to be responsible to the public. Fox News does not get that. So while airing the hearings would be the responsible thing to do, Fox News would rather go with its usual lineup and continue selling advertising for the evening. But even worse, they’re not going to let their viewers see the proceedings but will later gaslight it all to them. And it’s mostly for entertainment.

Instead of showing two hours of evidence that Donald Trump tried to destroy our democracy, Fox News would rather show their viewers two hours of MyPillow and gold coins commercials.

Music note: I listened to Queen, not because of the issue here, but because they rock. However, when I first started drawing this, I got Cher songs in my head.

Tucker’s Boy


I heard someone on a Sunday morning news show say there hasn’t been an increase in white supremacist groups, but that they’ve been given credibility and legitimized. No shit, Sherlock. But maybe with all the big-time support from major players, like Donald Trump and the entire gaggle of idiots at Fox News, perhaps they have increased recruitment for hate groups. There was no Qanon before Trump.

The number one terrorist threat in this nation is angry whiny little-dick-suffering white guys. Most terrorist attacks are committed by these goons. This has only increased during the Trump era. Who heard of Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, and Boogaloo Boys before Donald Trump occupied the White House? And when you point out to conservatives that white nationalists are the number one terror threat in this nation, they get upset. They claim they’re not racists but they’re very defensive and protective of white hate groups.

When a black man drove a truck through a parade killing people and another shot passengers on the subway in Brooklyn, I had right-wing trolls comment on my various platforms that these attacks were proof white supremacy isn’t the number one terror threat. But these goons don’t even recognize white nationalist terrorist attacks as acts of terrorism. Case in point: The January 6 attack on the Capitol building to overturn an election that many of them say was just a bunch of tourists exercising their freedom of speech.

Not only can’t they see white nationalist terrorism, but they also can’t even see white nationalism. Donald Trump said he didn’t know anything about Qanon except that they love their country. He couldn’t tell the difference between anti-racism protesters and the Nazis chanting “Jews will not replace us” in Charlottesville in 2017, even after the Nazis killed Heather Heyer, an innocent anti-racism protester. And on the top-rated “news show” in the nation, its host, Tucker Carlson, asks, “What is racism?”

Tucker Carlson’s show isn’t just the top-rated in the nation, beating its competition by a wide margin, but it’s the most popular show with white nationalists. David Duke, a former Grand Wizard, says Tucker speaks for the racists. And with promoting the Great Replacement theory while saying he doesn’t know what racism is, he is doing the bidding of racists.

Tucker has been talking about the bogus conspiracy theory for years that white people in this nation are being replaced by non-white immigrants. They believe this is a Democratic Party strategy to eventually erase white people and have a non-white Democratic Party-supporting voting majority. They use this shit to justify changing laws to make it harder for non-white people to vote and to advance other conspiracy theories. White racists truly believe this shit.

And just like what happened in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015 where nine black parishioners were killed inside a church, we had another young racist engage in a mass shooting to kill black people.

Yesterday, a young man drove over 200 miles to kill black people. He was a believer in the Great Replacement theory that Tucker peddles on his show. The white supremacist didn’t hide his intentions or motivation. He wrote a 180-page manifesto of his hate and intentions and had the “n-word” written on the barrel of his assault rifle. He shot 13 people, killing ten.

This 18-year-old kid threw his own life away while destroying many others and took credit for the violence in the name of white supremacy. This is Tucker’s boy. Tucker Carlson needs to own this.

The writer of the manifesto plotted his actions down to the minute, included diagrams of his path through the store, and said he specifically targeted the Tops Markets location on Jefferson Avenue because its zip code has the highest percentage of Black people close enough to where he lives.

The manifesto shows the shooter has been planning the attack for the past few years and became more serious since January. He whines about “white genocide” taking place in America and proudly brags about his racist and anti-Semitic views. I guess if he had a talk show on Fox News, he’d also be saying, “What is racism?” with a wink.

The manifesto writer conducted a Q&A with himself where he said he supports “those that wish for a future for white children and the existence of our people.” This is not the first white supremacist mass shooting in the Trump era. This isn’t the first with a manifesto. And if Fuckers like Tucker keep pushing their racist agenda on primetime television while Donald Trump conducts hate rallies where the all-white crowd chants “send them back,” it won’t be the last.

The shooter live-streamed his white nationalist terrorist attack on Twitch, which I guess is another hangout for white racist goons in addition to 4chan, Gab, and Truth Social. But these goons don’t need the dark web anymore because the number-one “news show” in the nation promotes their racist theories. White supremacy is now mainstream.

What does it say about America that its top-rated news show is hosted by a white supremacist? Tucker doesn’t have to just look into a mirror to see white supremacy. He can just look at the white supremacist shooter who killed ten people in Buffalo.

If Tucker Carlson had a son, he’d look like the Buffalo white supremacist shooter.

It’ll be interesting to hear what Tucker talks about Monday night on his show. I predict he will not own this.

Racist TV


Republicans are working overtime in several yee-haw states to make it illegal for public schools to teach that America is a racist country despite the fact nobody is teaching it, and despite the fact America IS a racist country.

Republicans refuse to believe this is a racist country and think even mentioning our racist past will put children through emotional trauma from white guilt. These fucknut fuckers also refuse to believe white privilege exists because they’re incapable of seeing it even while being the beneficiaries of it.

There’s an episode of 30 Rock where pretty people get better service, but they don’t realize they’re receiving better service than average-looking everyday schmoes like Tina Fey. It’s the same thing with white people and white privilege. They don’t see their privilege because they only see themselves. They aren’t paying attention to people who don’t look like them except when they turn on Fox News which is constantly screaming about the victimization of white people. THAT…they believe. White Christians believe they are the most persecuted demographic in the history of the world.

We are a racist country steeped in systemic racism lingering from our racist past. Our nation was founded on racism and still has a culture, business, and legal system that discriminates based on race. Republicans ask how can we be a racist nation while at the same time they’re making it harder for black people to vote and making it illegal to talk about racism. “How can we be a racist nation after electing a black president?”, they ask while also trying to delegitimize him by claiming he was born in Kenya.

There’s a lot of evidence we’re a racist nation from pay inequality to the number of African-Americans in prison that’s disparate to their population to police brutality to Colin Kaepernick being unable to get a job while white America’s defending a football coach for kneeling in prayer on the field to Hollywood hiring white actors to play Asians. But the biggest evidence we’re a racist country is that a racist like Donald Trump was elected president (sic) of the United States of America.

Sure, Trump didn’t win the popular vote as more people voted against him, and he lost in 2020, but there are enough Americans, 74 million of them, voting for Trump that make this a racist nation.

These people are so racist that they voted for a racist despite the fact he had zero experience, never gave details on how he was ever going to accomplish anything, and from all evidence, is a fucking moron. They’re so racist, they overlooked the fact they voted for a man who literally paints himself orange and wears a bleached skunk on his head. Personally, those are signs of dementia and alone should be disqualifying factors. Paint your face orange and wear a bleached skunk on your head then apply for a job at Taco Bell and see if they hire you. Republicans are afraid teaching racism will make white kids feel bad, but voting for that racist orange moron sure did make them feel good.

When Donald Trump said he could shoot a person on 5th Avenue and his followers would still vote for him, he was right. He could shoot a person on any avenue and his base would still vote for him because of his racism. He was the best they had.

Then again, maybe making Trump president (sic) isn’t the biggest sign we’re a racist nation. Perhaps the greatest indicator we’re racist is Tucker Carlson and the fact his show is the most popular in America.

Maybe racists have more time to watch TV than non-racists. Maybe racists have more time on their tiny racist hands than non-racists, who are probably too busy to watch TV because they’re out doing things like fighting racism.

Tucker is so racist, he claims he doesn’t know what racism or white nationalism is. He asks what they are incredulously and in the same manner I asked, “What is ball tanning?” Tucker’s inability to see racism probably stems from his privileged prep school upbringing. His white privilege is compounded with his trust-fund baby privilege.

A new study by The New York Times explains how Tucker Carlson “stoked white fear to conquer cable.” The New York Times wrote that Tucker Carlson “has constructed what may be the most racist show in the history of cable news.” They also include “perhaps, the most successful.” The times analyzed 1,150 shows in their study of Tucker’s racism.

Tucker declares himself an “enemy of prejudice” while telling his 92 percent white audience that they’re being replaced by nonwhite immigrants. When African migrants crossed our border into Texas, Tucker warned that the continent’s high birth rates meant the new arrivals might soon “overwhelm our country and change it completely and forever.” Tucker talked about African birthrates as if he was talking about rabbits….dirty dirty rabbits.

Tucker said, “We don’t judge them by group, and we don’t judge them on their race” a few weeks before claiming immigrants are making our nation dirtier. The Times writes that Tucker, “warns his viewers that they inhabit a civilization under siege — by violent Black Lives Matter protesters in American cities, by diseased migrants from south of the border, by refugees importing alien cultures, and by tech companies and cultural elites who will silence them, or label them racist, if they complain.”

I’m not eager to call everyone a racist who disagrees with me. But, I am not afraid to call a racist a racist. I use a lot more discretion than conservatives use accusing political opponents of being pedophiles…while they themselves support pedophiles.

But Tucker doesn’t consider himself a racist because Putin has never called him a racist, which he pointed out on his show. And by god, Putin is probably an expert on this since he’s identified Ukraine as a nation of Nazis, which is his reasoning for his invasion…which Tucker has supported. Hey, if a war criminal hasn’t called you a racist, then you must not be a racist. Right?

Fox News lawyers argued in a slander suit that Tucker’s show is just entertainment and “any reasonable viewer arrive(s) with an appropriate amount of skepticism about the statements he makes.” But Fox News viewers are not reasonable people.

Tucker’s show is racist and it caters to the white nationalists he claims don’t exist and whose attack on our nation’s capital is something that will barely register as a “footnote” in history. Carlson likes to use the term “legacy Americans,” a dog-whistle term he lifted directly from the Daily Stormer, a Nazi publication. Tucker pushed the story of white farmers in South Africa being murdered by black South Africans, which was first pushed in racist havens on the dark web, like Gab and 4chan.

Tucker is also the biggest champion of “the great replacement,” a racist belief that Democrats are deliberately importing “more obedient voters from the third world” to “replace” the current white electorate and keep themselves in power. Meanwhile, Republicans are making it harder for black AMERICANS to vote.

A Fox News spokesgoon said, “Tucker Carlson programming embraces diversity of thought and presents various points of view in an industry where contrarian thought and the search for truth are often ignored. Stories in ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ broadcasts and ‘Tucker Carlson Originals’ documentaries undergo a rigorous editorial process. We’re also proud of our ongoing original reporting at a time when most in the media amplify only one point of view.” He actually said this with a straight face.

A “rigorous” editorial process? How rigorous was the process with the Seth Rich story? “Embraces diversity of thought”? How often does Tucker have an opposing viewpoint on his show? And “most in the media amplify one point of view”? No wonder they don’t see white privilege. They don’t even see their own show.

Tucker’s show is racist because Tucker Carlson is a racist. And Fox News has made him immune from the few journalism ethics policies they have, and Tucker even boasts how he doesn’t answer to the channel’s chief executive. He only answers to Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News. Murdoch is happy with Tucker’s racism as it brings in at least three million viewers each night while CNN and MSNBC struggle to reach one million each.

Tucker invoked the “ruling class” in more than 800 shows and told his white nationalist audience the “ruling class” is importing immigrants from the “Third World” to replace them with more “obedient voters.” The “ruling class” is an antisemitic dog whistle that helped lead to the chants of “Jews will not replace us” in Charlottesville. The “Great Replacement” theory was also cited by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter and the shooter who targeted Hispanic shoppers in El Paso. There have been no apologies or ownership of this from Fox News or Tucker.

The Times found that Tucker has amplified the idea of demographic replacement in more than 400 episodes. He’s also highlighted shifting gender roles and falling white birthrates in more than 200 episodes.

R. Derek Black, a former white nationalist who has disavowed the movement, said it It doesn’t really matter if Tucker believes any of this because he’s using the same rhetoric as white nationalists. Black said having the most popular cable news host “directly pulling” from their talking points “makes them feel like, ‘Wow, we must be right.’” But despite what the lawyers for Fox News said, I think Tucker does believe in the stuff he says. I believe Tucker Carlson is a white nationalist. Tucker Carlson is a racist. And, Carlson’s TV show is also the most popular show with white nationalists.

Former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke said in 2020 that Trump should choose Carlson as his running mate. Nick Fuentes, another white nationalist, cheered Carlson’s promotion of the “Great Replacement” theory. Andrew Anglin, the founder of The Daily Stormer, called Carlson “literally our greatest ally.” They used Carlson’s image and his “Great Replacement “theory to promote a White Lives Matter rally.

If you don’t think you’re a racist but all the racists agree with you, you’re doing something wrong. Also, if all the racists agree with you then you’re most likely a racist too. They’re not watching Tucker for his cooking segments, which if he did have, would probably only teach how to boil white rice.

Tucker along with other Fox goons gloated over the demise of CNN+, especially targeting their former colleague Chris Wallace. Fox News celebrates the demise of an outlet that told the truth while they can keep telling lies and racist conspiracy theories.

Tucker used the Times article on his show and called journalists at the newspaper “obedient little establishment defenders” and asked: “Why do they keep calling us racist? Well, to make us shut up, obviously.”

No, Tucker. They called you a racist because you’re a racist, and that’s why you have the number one program. The majority of America’s TV “news” viewing audience would rather be told racist lies and conspiracy theories than hear the truth because America is racist.

Testicular Tucker


Once again, I’m not making this shit up.

On last Friday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, or whatever that show’s called, its host, Tucker Carlson, talked about testicles. Is it just me, or is Tucker kinda obsessed with men? I’m detecting a pattern here. He has a new documentary coming out titled, “The End of Men.” There is a trailer full of muscular topless men that looks more like an advertisement for Grindr. And did I see a guy with his penis in a Tesla charging station? Also, it is weird the first black guy in the trailer is a chubster? Did Tucker edit this thing himself? This video is so…manly, Ron DeSantis just banned it from all Florida classrooms.

Anyway, Tucker was talking about balls, specifically, he was addressing falling testosterone in men. Why? Is that a national crisis up there with Italian satellites changing bamboo ballots from Trump to Biden? Is it as dangerous as the Great Replacement Theory? Nonetheless, Tucker is very concerned about your balls and that they may be too white.

This is a switch. Usually, Tucker is all about white people being white and straight. He believes Democrats are replacing white people in this nation with non-white people and it’s the worst thing ever. His main worry is that white people will never again control 100 percent of the nation and will have to settle for only 99 percent of it. Now, he’s concerned your and his balls are too white. OK, so Tucker prefers brown balls. There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m cool with it.

Tucker’s question was, “How do you reverse the effects of falling testosterone?” He brought on Andrew McGovern, an Ohio-based fitness professional, who said part of the solution to falling testosterone is “red light therapy.” What is that? I don’t know, but I now know, thanks to Tucker, that it includes tanning your testicles.

Tucker, always wanting to bring to his show the most renowned, most respected, most educated, and brightest conservative fucknut media can offer, turned to Kid Rock. Keep in mind that this show is number one in all news shows. Number one.

So, Tucker asked Kid Rock, the lyrical genius who gave us, “Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy,” his thoughts on testicle tanning. Mr. Rock, or “Kid,” as his friends, like Monster Truck, call him (one of his friends is named “Monster Truck.” Why do I know this?), replied, “Dude, stop! Testicle tanning? Come on. I haven’t heard anything like that in a long time.”

So, how long has it been since Kid Rock has heard something like testicle tanning? As for me, I’ve never heard of anything like that…ever.

In Tucker’s defense, he may have mistaken Kid Rock for being a testicle expert based on the lyrics in his latest hit single, “We The People,” which are, “Fuck CNN, fuck TMZ, and you social media trolls, y’all can suck on deez (deez). Deez nuts, that’s what’s up.”

That is indeed…what’s up.

Tucker got serious, and this is the part of his show where his expression is the same as a person struggling with a bowel movement, asked, “Don’t you think at this point when so many of the therapies, the paths they’ve told us to take, have turned out to be dead ends that really hurt people, why wouldn’t open-minded people seek new solutions?”

Kid Rock replied, ““I don’t know what the hell is going on in this world. I’m not even sure if I understood that question. But some days you just want to stop this planet and let me off.”

That’s exactly what I say each time I’m reminded Tucker’s show is number one, and after I saw that trailer. Stop this planet and let me off. But, when you even lose Kid Rock with your conspiracy crap, you have problems. Kid Rock had no interest in bronzing deez nuts.

Promoting testicle tanning is right in line with Tucker’s other medical beliefs, that forcing a child to wear a face mask is child abuse, de-worming medication is better than the vaccine, and the government is denying white people monoclonal antibodies.

Tucker said, “One of the biggest stories of our lifetimes is the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men.” One of the biggest stories of our lifetimes? Really? Tucker’s upset that the National Institute of Health “doesn’t seem interested in this at all.” I got a nickel for the first person to call the NIH and ask if they have any pamphlets on tanning deez nuts.
Anyway, this red light therapy involves shooting a laser at your genitals. Tucker’s expert calls it, “full-body red-light therapy.” They would have brought Dr. Anthony Fauci on the show for his views on this tanning your dingleberries if he wasn’t such a quack.

They call this treatment “bromeopathy,” which sounds like something Barney Stinson would have coined. He did create the Bro Code, which contains all the rules on being a bro that every bro should know, like, “Thou shalt not make eye contact during a devil’s three-way.”
Unfortunately for Tucker’s viewers, Bromeopathy (stop this planet and let me off) is expensive. Have you seen the typical Tucker fan? Yeah, that guy’s not going to plunk down four figures to get his balls bronzed but, he doesn’t have to get testy about it. There are cheaper methods.

I consulted with a real scientist, Dr. Nadly Danglybits from the Knackers Institute for the Advancement and Study of Testicle Tanning in Pascagoula, Mississippi. There are no nut jobs at this institution. Dr. Danglybits is a big believer in bromeopathy. He’s balls-out for it but says you should save your money from the expensive treatments and just buy yourself a decent toaster. You probably don’t need to adjust the setting any higher than four, but insert your boys and push the lever down and then wait. If it gets really warm, don’t worry. That’s supposed to happen. Your testosterone will be shooting through the roof in no time. Butter and jam are optional.

Another testascular option involves jumper cables. Open the hood to your car, attach the jumper cables to the battery, attach the other end of the cables to your crown jewels, then have a good friend, someone like Monster Truck, start the car and step on the gas. For your safety, make sure the car stays in park. I don’t want any harm to come to you.

Unfortunately, these bromeopathy treatments only work on white men who are Tucker Carlson viewers. Coincidently, my scams also only work on white men who are Tucker Carlson viewers. Maybe we’ll get lucky and Dr. Dingleberry’s treatments will sterilize a lot of Tucker fans.

How does Tucker Carlson not know we’re laughing at him?

As I started work this morning, I thought, “The serious thing to do would be to draw a cartoon on the war in Ukraine or the lifting of the face mask travel mandate.” But, c’mon. Tucker’s talking about balls. How could I ignore that? I can’t wait to see what my colleagues follow me with on this subject.

Also, I did a Google search for names of tanning salons but I didn’t expect to find an actual salon named “BronzeBerry.” It’s in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, right next door to my town. After seeing this cartoon, they might want to change their name.

Canning Caitlyn On The Can


I did something weird last night. I watched Fox News. More specifically, I watched Tucker Carlson. Granted, it was only for about five minutes, with three of those probably being commercials. But still, I watched Fox News.

I have YouTube TV and when I scroll through the channels, the first ones that pop up are those I frequent the most, like CNN, MSNBC, BBC…and yeah…that’s about it except during football season. That’s not all I watch as I also have streaming services, but yeah…on actual television, I mostly only watch news shows. So it actually took some scrolling before I could even find Fox News. And when I found it, it was time for Tucker.

I jumped in while Tucker was talking to some goon about “wokeness” and the damage it was having on the nation, how Democrats were going to pay dearly for it, and how it’s just a bunch of fear-mongering from the left as striking fear into people is all the left has. Tucker, who’s spent years warning on the danger of the Great Replacement theory kept a straight face during this discussion about using fear tactics.

Then, Tucker was about to go to commercials but promised when he came back, he’d give a report on CNN finally admitting Hunter Biden’s laptop is a thing. So after sitting through commercials for prostate medication and buying gold and silver, Tucker came back and delivered on his promise to expose CNN and make them look like hypocrites. Tucker explained he was going to show clips of CNN attacking the reports on Hunter’s laptop and then show more recent clips of CNN finally realizing the legitimacy of Hunter’s laptop. Tucker had to explain to his viewers that’s what they were seeing because it’s not what he showed.

What he showed was an old clip of a CNN anchor talking about how Rudy Giuliani can’t be trusted for information and that the right is using Russian propaganda. He then showed a recent clip of another CNN anchor talking about the investigation into Hunter Biden. Neither clip mentioned the laptop. But, Tucker was there to tell us they talked about the laptop they weren’t talking about.

During the few minutes I watched, Tucker never talked about the importance or relevance of this laptop. If you actually pay attention, conservative media has not been telling you anything specific about the laptop that makes it criminal or evil. It’s legal to own a laptop. Good people own laptops. Churches have laptops. Why I bet even people at Fox News own laptops. So, what is it then? Oh, the emails on Hunter’s laptop. What do they say?

The emails conservative media use are “purported” to come from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden until he abandoned it at a computer repair store. For some reason, Hunter Biden had a computer full of evidence that will send him to prison, so he abandoned it for Rudy Giuliani to pick up and expose him. So much about this does not pass the sniff test. And trust me, you don’t want to sniff Giuliani. But, all the emails show is that Hunter was arranging meetings with his business dealings in Ukraine and mentioned his father here and there. Not only do the emails not show any criminal connections to the president, but they don’t display any criminal activity by Hunter Biden. The big news here is that there’s a laptop that might have once belonged to Hunter Biden.

The fact is, there is an investigation of Hunter Biden, but not about his laptop. It’s about his taxes. Now Fox News and conservative media want to focus on someone who doesn’t pay their taxes? Really? Also, if you hate someone for using their political connections for shady business in Ukraine and Russia, maybe talk to Donald Trump. Didn’t he run a beauty pageant in Russia? Didn’t he try to build a Trump Tower in Moscow? Didn’t he try to extort the president of Ukraine? Of course, none of that is as criminal as Hunter Biden having a laptop and an email account.

And if we’re going to send people to prison for using an elected office to grift and profit, then I’m all for sending Hunter Biden to prison as long as he has a lot of company.

Maybe Tucker did talk about the relevance of the laptop but I wouldn’t know because I had to change the channel. Kash Patel, a Trump goon with scary crazy eyes, was coming on to talk about the laptop and I knew I wouldn’t be able to stomach the bullshit. But, I see why people fall for Fox’s gaslighting and lies. It’s an art. Tucker shows clips of people talking about something and he tells his stupid audience they just watched something else. Fox News is not good at the specifics and details of a story. How could he be lying about it when he’s so outraged? Would a guy endorsed by prostate medication and shitty pillows lie to you?

And I didn’t even find what I was looking for as the reason I watched the network in the first place was to see Caitlyn Jenner’s first appearance on Fox News after being hired as a correspondent.

I heard she was going to be on either Tucker or Sean Hannity’s program…and I get those racist gaslighters confused. All conservative racist goony white guys look alike, amiright? As it turns out, she was on Hannity’s show at nine, but I couldn’t flip back over and watch more Fox News. Fives minutes every six months is about all I can take and I didn’t want to have to take two showers in one night.

I did read about Caitlyn’s appearance on Hannity and as it turned out, he only asked her two questions, and no. One of them wasn’t about which bathroom in the building she was going to use.

Fox News hired Caitlyn to be a “trailblazer” for the network but in reality, they hired a trans person who is transphobic. It’s like when they hire a black person who hates black people and votes for a racist like Donald Trump. My black friends says it’s OK for me to be a racist. Now, you have a friend who says it’s OK to hate trans people.

Caitlyn, a Republican, is trans and supports the bigoted “Don’t say gay” bill in Florida. She’s also against a trans swimmer competing with women. Yesterday was Transgender Day of Visibility, so Caitlyn went on Hannity which would be like a black person going on Tucker’s show to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Caitlyn pushed all the right buttons to get this job where she’ll only be asked two questions per appearance. During a February appearance on Hannity, she said, “We are living in such a woke world right now, I can’t even figure it out.” 

Where else but on Fox News can you find a trans person complaining about living in a “woke” world? Maybe in six months, I’ll change the channel again.

Good luck finding the restrooms, Caitlyn.

Nuclear Outrage


Good lord, what is it now?

Fox News is in the business of scaring fragile white people. President Barack Obama once said that if he watched Fox News then he’d probably hate President Obama too.

White conservatives are afraid of any change, especially if that change is a threat to their white privilege. They’ve even created a conspiracy theory, pushed by Tucker, called the “Great Replacement Theory,” where liberals are using immigrants to replace people of European ethnicity. And none of those immigrants are going to ever say “Merry Christmas.”

But what the hell are they reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop while never telling us what’s on it? Sure, The New York Times acknowledged there’s a laptop that Rudy Giuliani claims belongs to Hunter, but we still don’t have any real dirt.

Last week, a college trans swimmer won a women’s competition. This has been covered on actual news outlets, but it’s not the lead it is over at Fucknut TV. Republicans are so outraged by this you’d think they came home to find a trans swimmer in their bathtub corrupting their rubber ducky. He’s seen too much!

Florida’s goon governor, Ron DeSantis, even took time off from signing hate legislation and screaming at children for wearing face masks, that he signed a proclamation declaring the woman who came in second in the swim competition as the actual winner. I wonder if Sidney Powell has notarized it yet.

Republican elected officials are putting more effort into frivolous culture war issues than they are putting into performing their actual jobs, from DeSantis’ hate legislation to Marsha Blackburn asking Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to “define” women, to Ted Cruz wasting everyone’s time on Critical Race Theory and “racist babies.” It’s like there are no more adults in the GOP or on conservative TV.

Fox News spends a good chunk of its time complaining about the mainstream media, but guess what, Kitty Cat. Fox News is the ratings leader, something conservatives are very proud of but, that makes Fox News the mainstream media.

So, most “news” watchers in this country are being outraged by wokeness, the Great Replacement Theory, the War on Christmas, Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, trans swimmers, trans Potato Heads, George Soros, Italian Sattelites changing ballots in Dominion voting machines, convoy truckers’ freedom being taken away, bamboo ballots, Hillary Clinton, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and the rest of the “squad,” a black female vice president, a black female Supreme Court Justice, Jussie Smollett, socialist face masks, vaccines with microchips, the WAP song, unsexy M&Ms, Dr. Seuss being canceled, the election stolen from Trump, the gay “agenda,” cancel culture, the federal deficit (only when we have a Democratic president), the “Russia hoax,” Dr. Fauci doing his job, and Hunter Biden’s laptop. What did I leave out?

Here’s a new guideline: If Fox News reports it, then you probably don’t have to be upset over it.

Why Do I Hate Tucker?


Even though Fox News is more of an entertainment outlet than a real source of news, actual journalists do work at Fox News. Sure, you don’t see them in prime time and a lot of their contributions get manipulated to push agendas over news, but there are journalists at Fox News who take their jobs seriously.

But while Fox News highlights hacks like Greg Gutfeld sneering at actual news and Tucker Carlson defending Vladimir Putin while sitting in a comfortable studio where the greatest dangers are sniffles from the brisk central air system, real journalists like Pierre Zakrzewski, Oleksandra Kuvshynova, Benjamin Hall, and Brent Renaud are in war zones exposing the truth to the rest of the world.

Last week, Greg Gutfeld claimed the media were emotionally manipulating viewers with footage from the war in Ukraine. Since Fox News is the number one “news” channel in ratings, they are the media. And a lot of that war footage was coming from Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova who were risking their lives while Gutfeld was on the air downplaying their contributions.

Benjamin Hall, another actual journalist at Fox News who was on the ground in Kyiv, rebuked Gutfeld explaining to him, “This is not the media trying to drum up some emotional response. This is absolutely what’s happening.” Hall should know better than Gutfeld as he’s not only on the ground covering the war, he was injured shortly after his exchange with Gutfeld.

Greg Gutfeld should apologize, not just to Hall, but to his viewers for downplaying a war in favor of his pro-Putin bias. He should apologize for not doing his job.

Shortly before the invasion began, Tucker asked, rhetorically, “Why do I hate Putin so much?”

Tucker did an entire segment saying, “It may be worth asking yourself, since it is getting pretty serious, what is this really about? Why do I hate Putin so much? Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him?”

Tucker asked his viewers whether Putin had promoted “racial discrimination” in schools, made fentanyl, attempted to “snuff out” Christianity, or eaten dogs. Tucker said, “These are fair questions, and the answer to all of them is ‘no.’ Vladimir Putin didn’t do any of that. So, why does permanent Washington hate him so much?”

Tucker, I can give you two damn good reasons to hate Vladimir Putin: Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova. We can also include Benjamin Hall and Brent Renaud.

Vladimir Putin killed Pierre Zakrzewski this week. Zakrzewski was covering the war on the ground in Ukraine so his colleagues back home, like Tucker and Greg, could report the information and know exactly what was going on. It’s just a shame Tucker and Greg abused the resource that was Pierre Zakrzewski.

Pierre Zakrzewski was an Irish photojournalist and a fixture in war zones and in addition to Ukraine had covered conflicts in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. Fox gave the cameraman the company’s “Unsung Hero” award for helping evacuate Afghan citizens who had worked for the network along with their families last summer.

Oleksandra Kuvshynova was also murdered by Vladimir Putin this week. She was serving as a consultant for Fox News in Ukraine, helping the network’s team navigate the area, gather news, and speak with sources.

Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed when the car they were traveling in came under fire. Benjamin Hall, who had to rebuke Greg Gutfeld that this was is actually happening and not some anti-Putin media extravaganza, was in the same vehicle and injured.

Brent Renaud, a documentary filmmaker who was in Ukraine for Time Studios, was killed last week in a suburb of Kyiv.

Journalists are putting their lives at risk to bring us the news. It’s just too bad that the majority of viewers are watching an outlet like Fox News.

While the goons at Fox News would rather defend Putin and repeat his propaganda, real journalists are in danger covering news in a war zone. Fox News’ Pentagon correspondent Jennifer Griffin said, “If ever there was a time that the world needed journalists, reporters, risking their lives to tell these stories, it’s now. Without a free press, the autocrats win.”

We do need journalists. What we don’t need are the Tucker Carlsons and Greg Gutfelds posing as journalists. Tucker and Gutfeld, instead of being cheerleaders for Vladimir Putin, should understand why they should hate the man who murdered their colleagues.

Sure, Tucker. Putin’s not eating dogs or making fentanyl. He hasn’t fired you or tried to “snuff out” Christianity. He hasn’t taught any Critical Race Theory courses in our schools. He’s never even called you a racist. So, why hate Putin? There are a lot of good reasons to hate Vladimir Putin, like his killing of civilians, but you can hate him because he killed your colleagues.

Russian Heroes


There are heroes and then there are cowards.

Marina Ovsyannikova, an editor and producer for Russian state TV’s flagship news program, ran on the set during a live broadcast with a sign protesting Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Ovsyannikova chanted “stop the war” while holding a sign with the same message and “don’t believe propaganda” and “they are lying to you here.”

They are lying to you there.

The Kremlin has cracked down on journalists reporting the news and has made it a crime to report facts out of Ukraine, especially reports of Ukrainian victories and Russian military failures. Anyone reporting facts will be charged for impeding the war effort. Anyone reporting “fake news” can be sentenced to 15 years in prison. Western journalists have fled the country with several Moscow news bureaus shutting down. Western news outlets don’t want to see their journalists charged with crimes for doing their job or even worse, disappear.

Marina Ovsyannikova has disappeared. OVD-Info, a human rights group that tracks protest activity and detentions in Russia, says Ovsyannikova has been “detained.”

Ovsyannikova was probably expecting to be captured after her protest, so she recorded a video message beforehand saying, “What is going on in Ukraine is a crime.”

She said, “Unfortunately, I have been working at Channel One during recent years, working on Kremlin propaganda. And now I am very ashamed. I am ashamed that I’ve allowed the lies to be said on the TV screens. I am ashamed that I let the Russian people be zombified.”

Channel One is the first channel to be broadcast nationwide in Russia. It’s owned by the state and has over 250 million viewers.

Ovsyannikova said in her video message that her father is Ukrainian and her mother is Russian. “They have never been enemies,” she said, pointing to her necklace comprising the colors of the Russian and Ukrainian flags.

Referring to the year when Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine, Ovsyannikova said, “We were silent in 2014 when it all started.” She said the silence continued when Putin critic and opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned and then imprisoned. “We just silently watched this anti-human regime and now the entire world turned their backs against us,” Ovsyannikova explained.

She ended her message with, ““It is only in our power to stop this madness. Take to the streets. Do not be afraid. They can’t jail us all.” But they have jailed her along with thousands of others. It takes real courage to publicly protest the Russian government or Vladimir Putin. Ask Pussy Riot. Ask Alexei Navalny.

TASS, the Russian state-run news agency, citing an unnamed government official, reported that Ovsyannikova is detained and could be held liable under Russia’s ban on “discrediting” actions of its armed forces. 

Ovsyannikova’s one-woman protest is being hailed around the world as a dangerous act of resistance. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked her in one of his daily video messages. He said, “I am grateful to those Russians who do not stop trying to convey the truth.” Thousands of Russians have been arrested for conveying the truth.

Marina Ovsyannikova is a hero for reporting the truth in a nation that doesn’t allow press freedom. Here in the United States where press freedom is the bedrock of our democracy because you can’t have a democracy without a free and independent press, we have cowards zombifying their viewers with Kremlin propaganda. We have cowards like Tucker Carlson.

Tucker Carlson is a coward. While Marina Ovsyannikova is being “detained” by the Kremlin, that same body is ordering state news outlets to feature Tucker. The Kremlin shuts down people like Marina Ovsyannikova while promoting goons like Tucker Carlson.

Marina Ovsyannikova was ashamed of herself for working for Channel One and helping spread Kremlin propaganda, so she did something about it. She’s a hero. Tucker Carlson has no shame and continues to spread Kremlin propaganda. Fox News has no shame for allowing this to infect our nation. Rupert Murdoch has no shame. Fox News viewers have no shame.

Ted Rall, an ultra-leftist American “journalist” works for Sputnik, another Russian government-owned “news” platform that operates in the United States, because we have freedom. Ted has no shame. While Sputnik may be shut down in the U.S. from sanctions, for the time being, Ted is using his social media platforms to continue spreading Kremlin propaganda. He has a following eating it up. But Ted asks, “how can I be a traitor to Ukraine when I’ve never been there?” Ted has mastered the art of deflection which is a useful tool in propaganda.

An American can’t be a traitor to Ukraine. Don’t be silly. But you can be a traitor to American ideals and to democracy. As a journalist, he’s a traitor to truth. As an American, he’s a traitor for being Putin’s puppet, a Kremlin propagandist, and a useful idiot.

The useful idiots like Ted and Tucker don’t have shame that they’re free to spread Kremlin propaganda and will be rewarded for it while Marina Ovsyannikova lives in a fascist state that has “detained” her for speaking the truth. She knew that going in. She knew she would be hunted down and may not ever be seen again. Marina Ovsyannikova could very well be in a Siberian gulag while Ted and Tucker are still cheerleading Vladimir Putin while he bombs more baby hospitals.

In Russia, you’re not free to be brave but in the United States, you’re free to be a coward. How does it feel, Tucker? How does it feel Ted? How does it feel to know the Kremlin wishes Marina Ovsyannikova, and the thousands of others they’ve arrested for protesting against their unprovoked war, could be more like Tucker Carlson and Ted Rall?

We need more heroes like Marina Ovsyannikova and fewer cowards like Ted Rall and Tucker Carlson.

Keep On Truckin’


CjonesRGB02222022

When it comes to lies and spreading hate and division, goon TV keeps on truckin’.

If you’ve been watching Fox and the other channels your crazy uncle loves, you would have thought the brutal authoritarian regime bringing crackdowns upon its oppressed minority wasn’t China, but Canada.

Right-wing TV is upset that the Canadian “Freedom” Truckers are being denied their white privilege and entitlements to break the law. As we learned from the insurrection at the United States Capitol and the lawless rulebreaking Trump regime, conservatives care less about laws and more about who’s breaking them.

If you’re a white conservative, it’s OK if you protest. It’s OK if you attempt to overturn the government. It’s Ok to break into the Capitol and poop and pee-pee in the hallways. It’s Ok to bring nooses and try to hang the vice president. It’s OK to steal stuff. It’s Ok to attack cops. It’s OK to block roads. It’s OK to stop commerce. It’s OK to kill jobs. It’s OK to disrupt the supply chain of goods entering and leaving this country.

The same people upset over the Canadian government clearing the “Freedom” Truckers after being allowed to block roads around that nation’s parliament, and blockades of the border for weeks, were more than happy to see Donald Trump and William Barr clear a park of peaceful protesters so he could have his photo taken while holding a Bible upside down.

For conservatives, it’s wrong to protest for racial equality but good to protest fake attacks on their white freedom.

Remember when conservatives were the “law and order” party? Yeah, scratch that. Remember when they cared about cops? Scratch that too. Weren’t they complaining about the supply-chain crisis and blaming President Biden? Oops. Haven’t they also been complaining about the employment rate? Uh oh. Remember how they always claimed to be for a strong economy? Yeah, not so much.

These “Freedom” fu…er…truckers have been breaking the law. Several would-be terrorists were caught with weapons in a plot to murder the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They’ve been disrupting the supply chain. Workers at auto plants have been told to go home because the goods they make were not able to be transported across our border with Canada. The truckers’ actions have hurt the economy in both nations.

Let’s not forget these “protests” were organized by white nationalists. Let’s not forget that these “Freedom” Truckers are not just the minority of Canadians, but they represent a minority of Canadian truckers. The trucking industry has condemned these protests. Of the 120,000 truckers Canadian truckers who serve cross-border routes, an estimated 85 percent are vaccinated. Let’s destroy the economy because 15 percent of Canadian truckers have full diapers.

This entire thing is supposedly about vaccine mandates. Canada and the U.S. both exempted truckers from being vaccinated to cross the border in order not to disrupt the supply chain. Those exemptions were lifted in January, and then all this bullshit started.

The truckers’ freedoms were never taken away. If you’re entering another nation, then you are expected to obey the laws in that nation. If you go to Mexico, you are expected to obey the laws of that nation. If you’re a citizen of the United States and Canada says you must be vaccinated against COVID to enter, Canada is not violating your rights. The same goes if you’re a Canadian and want to enter the U.S. You may as well protest against another country’s seatbelt and speed limit laws.

It really doesn’t make a lot of sense, which explains why the Fox fuckers are so in love with these butt-hurt truckers.

Stupid Son Of A…


CjonesRGB01272022

There may be a lot of douches over at Fox News, but there are only two Doocys (not to be confused with “deuce,” but it’s OK if you do confuse them). They have two Doocys but they can’t keep one Shephard Smith.

Yesterday, the president of the United States of America (in case you’re a Republican, the current president is Joe Biden), called a reporter a “stupid son of a bitch.” Yeah, he’s from Fox News so it’s probably true because, in addition to that fact, he’s also the son of Steve Doocy. And while we can make fun of it, laugh, and tweet about it, like I did yesterday (only to have a fucker from Fox News steal my joke), a president shouldn’t ever attack the press. But, we know it’s not the first time.

Presidents have been quarreling with the press and calling individual journalists vulgar names since there have been presidents and journalists. Journalists don’t exist to give politicians the coverage they want. They don’t go to press conferences only to ask questions a politician wants to answer. Donald Trump literally asked a reporter once, “Why can’t you ask a nice question?”.

CNN’s Jake Tapper defended Peter Doocy during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night. Tapper said, “I don’t think any president should be calling any reporter a dumb son of a bitch.” Jake’s right, even if the reporter is a “dumb son of a bitch” asking a stupid question.

Sometimes a reporter has to ask a stupid question just to get a politician on record like, “Do you disavow all the Nazis and Klansmen who support you and are naming their babies after you?” With Donald Trump, the answer would probably be, “I don’t know anything about Nazis or Klansmen but I hear they love their country.” There’s also the background that he too named one of his racist babies “Donald.”

What Peter Doocy asked the president (the real one, not the president of Mar-a-Lago) yesterday during a press conference at the White House was if he thought “inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms.” President Biden responded with, “”No, it’s a great asset. More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” 

They’re calling it a “hot-mic moment,” but since the President (the guy who won the popular vote and electoral college), was standing at the same podium where he had just been speaking into microphones, I’m pretty sure he knew they were “hot.”

While this has received a lot of coverage on TV news, and all the outrage from the Right on social media, everyone seems to be overlooking the fact that it was indeed a stupid question that only a stupid son of a bitch would ask. This guy wants to know if a president thinks inflation is bad politically, and he’s a professional reporter hired to cover the White House? What’ll Doocy ask a politician next? Do you think all those dead hookers and cocaine found in the trunk of your car will be a political liability? Do you wish law enforcement authorities had not found all that child porn on your government-issued laptop? Do you now regret going to that 1997 Valentine’s Day party in blackface? Are you glad there’s a newly-released video of you dancing the “Boot Scootin’ Boogie?” Do you now regret the support you gave white nationalists in their attempt to overthrow the government? OK, maybe they’re not all stupid questions.

The president (the one who lives in the White House today) later called Doocy to apologize, which seemed to upset Sean Hannity. Presidents aren’t supposed to apologize for their insults…at least the fake one doesn’t.

Jake Tapper is right. Presidents shouldn’t be slinging out derogatory insults at reporters. He told Jimmy Kimmel, “Standards for decency don’t have to do with whether or not you like the people who are being treated poorly. It has to do with the standard.”

Tapper is also correct with his comment, “And yes I realize that Peter’s channel would never come to my defense like that, so it is what it is.” 

A journalist should do the right thing, no matter who the president is (Joe Biden) or if the reporter is a really bad one working for a “news” outlet with a far-right pro-racist agenda. Fox News doesn’t always get that.

While the douches, deuces, and Doocys over at Fox News are having fainting spells over this, they all sat back, chortled, chuckled, and snorted when the Trump administration tried to ban Jim Acosta from covering the White House.

But it was their own reporter whom Trump attacked and said she had “blood coming out of her wherever.” Now was that before or after Fox News had jumped on the Trump Train?

Donald Trump has insulted a lot of reporters. He’s called them stupid, lightweight, nasty (the females), terrible, wise guy, third-rate, and told one he wasn’t thinking. He asked April Ryan, a black female reporter, if she knew everyone in the Black Congressional Caucus. He told CBS’s Weijia Jiang to “go ask China.”

Most of all, let’s not forget his attacks on the media itself and his attempts to destroy its credibility. He famously calls the free press “fake news.” He’s called it “phony.” He’s called it “corrupt.” He called The New York Times the “Failing” New York Times. He calls The Washington Post “The Amazon Washington Post.” To Trump, the greatest sin a journalist can commit is to publish the truth about him.

Donald Trump also voiced support to get rid of the First Amendment, which has been carefully ignored by all the “constitutionalists” out there.

This isn’t to do a whatabout in defense of Joe Biden. And other Democratic presidents, such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, have also attacked the press and reporters. The point is, presidents should cherish and support the First Amendment and a free press. Without a free press, there is no democracy.

And even if Fox News is full of Stupid sons of bitches like the Doocys, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Jeannine Pirro, they are still protected by the First Amendment.

I’m sure Joe Biden knows this. He is the real President of the United States of America after all.
