Murdoch Host - Dog Ate My Emails

Many of those who look in on Zelo Street will already be familiar with the Murdoch mafiosi and its propensity for dishonesty, coupled with slavish support for right-wing politics. But what newspapers like the Sun, and broadcast outlets like TalkRADIO, produce is as nothing when put alongside the tsunami of falsehood, misinformation and propaganda that spews daily from the hosts at Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse).

Yeah, we put them in the mail, er, I think

And FNC is the template for other operations: TalkRADIO is drifting inexorably in that direction, Sky News Australia (now 100% Murdoch owned) has already arrived there, and the people at Ofcom will no doubt be looking nervously at a start-up “news” channel which is being planned by the inmates of the Baby Shard bunker.

In the run-up to this year’s US Presidential Election, FNC has, to no surprise at all, been shilling shamelessly, and almost continuously, for Combover Crybaby Donald Trump. This has involved pushing some truly wacko conspiracy theories, including a claim that Democrat challenger Joe Biden’s son Hunter, or someone on his behalf, dropped off a MacBook at a repair shop, and that something on the hard drive was seriously incriminating.

Dodgy emails! The thing that, in the retelling, did for Hillary Clinton in 2016! Off went the whole roster of FNC’s “opinion” hosts, including one Tucker Carlson. He is the one who inherited the 2000 hours weekdays Eastern slot after the departure of Bill O’Reilly. Tucker Carlson Tonight is FNC’s highest-rating show. And Carlson pushed the Biden email story.

But here a problem entered: all those hosts talked about the emails, but no emails were ponied up. This sowed seeds of doubt, even in the minds of loyal FNC viewers. So now, we are told that there are more damning Biden documents. And FNC has them. Or, rather, FNC did have them, but, er, they got lost in the post. You read that right.

So it was that Carlson, earnest manner, straight face and all, told his viewers yesterday evening “On Monday this week we received … a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family”. But the documents were in New York, and Carlson was in LA. So a producer in NYC “shipped those documents overnight to California with a large national carrier”. And guess what happened then? You’ll love this one.

The Biden documents never arrived in Los Angeles. Tuesday morning we received word from the shipping company that our package had been opened, and the contents were missing”. Sorry Tuck, but this is complete crap. One, the producer in NYC only needed to scan them, or use their phone camera, and then use that gizmo called email.

And Two, how did the people who allegedly intercepted the package know what to look for? Was it marked “Fox News Channel - incriminating Biden documents en route to Tucker Carlson”? if they really had been dynamite, someone would have gone to JFK, EWR or LGA, got on a plane, virus risk or no, and delivered them personally.

The Hunter Biden email claim didn’t work. Now it’s been replaced by “A Registered Democrat Dog Intercepted My Homework And Ate It”.

But don’t laugh too loudly. This standard of con artistry will be here in the UK very soon.

The Kamala piece was very funny!

I'd say that's quite small beer compared to the fact that McNicol, Matthews and others worked to ensure Labour lost elections. And were then paid off with looted party funds. All of which benefited the Starmer Quiff and his minority gang of red tory quislings.

Corrupt Brits have fuck all to learn from the Yank version.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight averaged 5.36 million viewers in October.

The show’s monthly average viewership was the highest for any program in cable news history.

The show also had just over 1 million viewers in the adults 25-54 category, and 670,000 in adults 18-49.

"The show also had just over 1 million viewers in the racist morons 25-54 category, and 670,000 in racist morons 18-49." FIFY.

Whatever Carlson's dog-eared homework, its a desperate man that tries to save Trump from the slammer.

Barring Jesus returning and coming out as a Trumpian, it's pretty nailed on that Biden is going to win and return some sense of stability to America.

Remember when the left stood for truth and transparency?

Console yourself with the thought that the right continue with dissembling, hypocrisy and projection.

@ 01:30.

The Left still does stand for truth and transparency.

The right never has, doesn't, and never will.

Could one ask how Biden became a rich man on a government salary without having any businesses?

Vote Biden, sell your country to China, but you don't get the money!

"When Joe officially ended his term as VP, he filed a financial disclosure form that listed his net worth between -$897,000 and $489,000. But then, in the subsequent two years, the couple apparently made more than $15 million in speaking fees, book tours (both he and and Jill released memoirs), and leadership at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania".

Could one ask if that's egg on Gammon Anonymous' face @12:27? Or cum from fellating Nazi demagogues?

“We need to be having the rest of our friends with us, saying to China: ‘We play by the rules. You play by them or you are going to pay the price for not playing by them, economically’,” Biden said in Thursday’s debate against Trump.

In contrast, Trump spoke admiringly of Xi and was seen by experts in China as “a businessman ready to make deals and not focused on human rights,” according to Jacques deLisle, director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania.

"have egg on one's face" Fig. to be embarrassed by something one has done. https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/have+egg+on+face

The phrase is figurative, which means that it isn't a description of reality. Rather like the substance of your complaints about Biden. BTW, condolences on being caught out by Borat.
