‘Enemies of the State’: Fox News to Air Repot on Gov’t Harassment

Just as we are talking here on Wizbang about the mess with the resignation of Mozilla CEO’s and as Senate Majority “leader” Harry Reid has been attacking the right of free political speech from the floor of the Senate every single day and as Obama has used his IRS as a weapon to destroy conservative, Fox is airing a show highlighting all this criminality.

Without a doubt Obama’s government is constantly whipping up hatred for anyone who disagrees with the liberal line. So, at 10PM Eastern on Saturday, April 5, Fox is airing FOX News Reporting: Enemies of the State to expound on this anti-free speech crusade being perpetrated by people and entities ranging from President Obama, Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, to the NSA and the IRS and others on the left-wing of the American political sphere.

The one-hour special will be hosted by FNC’s Jon Scott and will focus on Americans who have found themselves in the crosshairs of their own government. During the program, Scott will be joined by FNC senior national correspondent John Roberts and co-anchor of America’s News HQ Greg Jarrett to investigate four issues where private citizens found themselves in battles against the government.

In fact, just today (or should I say every day for the last many months) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was using his official Twitter account to attack conservative donors. But Reid isn’t the only one. We’ve seen Obama use his bully pulpit to attack conservative media personalities by name, something few presidents have ever done. Worse, he has used his IRS as a weapon to attack organizations on the right in an effort to scare them out of their political advocacy.

The Fox special will explore all these issues and more.

Tune in at 10PM eastern on Saturday and see how the U.S. government has been undermining the free political speech of Americans.

    expect that the executives at Fox already have good tax lawyers as they have probably already been audited for each of the last 4 years.

    Given how poorly edited and poorly fact checked almost everything on Fox News is, the time between the airing of the report and the response from the left will probably be measured in minutes.

    What is amazing is the Fox News Channel editors know that everything they say or report will be severely fact checked. Yet, the editors refuse to put the effort into their stories so that they can withstand the response of the left.

    • GarandFan

      Care to give examples of “almost everything”? Or do you just regurgitate the party line…no actual thought required?

      • superdestroyer

        Look at http://www.salon.com/2013/10/18/inside_the_fox_news_lie_machine_i_fact_checked_sean_hannity_on_obamacare/

        Any time Fox News reports on a member of the public, they misrepresent them. What is amazing is that Fox News reports with the POV and fact checking is not needed. A reporter should naturally be skeptical of outlandish claims Fox News seems to jump on every outlandish story without stopping to either fact check or even do a reality check.

        • LiberalNightmare

          There ya go, watching fox news again.

          Stick with MSNBC, some of the infomercials are really done well.

          • LiberalNightmare

            Am I the only that thinks its ironic to use an article from Salon to bash the credibility of Fox News?

          • alanstorm

            Ironic? I think the word “lame” applies better.

          • superdestroyer

            Are you arguing that Salon is wrong or that since Salon is to the left of Fox News, it can be ignored.

            What reference would you find acceptable that would ever do fact checking on Fox News.

            The Washington Post reported that Fox News could not even fact check their claim that they do not make mistakes.


          • jim_m

            It seemed obvious that he was claiming that Salon, as a far left opinion magazine and not a hard news source, was not a credible source for news period. Jeez, what a dope.

          • LiberalNightmare

            I’m not arguing with you. That would be pointless.

            I’m mocking you.

          • superdestroyer

            I always find it odd that people demand references and then, when given references, just nitpick them without providing any counter cites or references. If Salon and the Washington Post are wrong, surely you could provide some cites that show that Fox News does not make more mistakes than CNN or MSNBC. And any source would be acceptable unlike others who demand cites and then argue that no cite would be acceptable.

          • jim_m

            The whole point of references is to provide support for your assertions. However, references are not proof that your assertion is valid. Understanding what those references actually say and mean is not just “nitpicking” it is the substance of argumentation.

            What you’re really objecting to is that people disagree with you and actually are willing to debate the substance of your arguments. That happens a lot here which is why I suspect you spend so little time here.

          • LiberalNightmare

            I find it odd when people reply to the wrong comment.

          • alanstorm

            First you cite Salon, then the WP? Citations should be from CREDIBLE sources.

            Shame this has to be explained to you.

        • alanstorm

          Sorry, can you be a little more vague there?

          Keep practicing – English is a tough language to learn. Punctuation and phrasing helps. Knowing what you’re talking about helps even more.

        • Retired military

          “Any time Fox News reports on a member of the public, they misrepresent them”
          Is this like when a Dem politician gets into trouble the MSM leaves out the fact that he is a democrat?

    • 914

      As if the left has any interest in facts or checking? Benghazi anyone? We have to pass it to see whats in it anyone? Get lost knucklehead.

    • alanstorm

      Can you back up any of that, or is the lack of citations the dead giveaway it appears to be?

      Can you contrast and compare Fox’s editing and fact-checking with any of the other networks, so as to demonstrate the other networks’ brilliance? (Sorry, that one’s a trap. You can’t!)

      • warnertoddhuston

        Of course he can’t. He’s just talking out his ass and didn’t expect to be fact checked.

    • alanstorm

      “Given how poorly edited and poorly fact checked almost everything on Fox
      News is, the time between the airing of the report and the response
      from the left will probably be measured in minutes.”

      Please explain what the first phrase has to do with the second. I have no doubt the left will react instantly; I am also quite sure that their responses with be almost totally fact-free.

      • superdestroyer

        Fox News will use some claim to prove its point about government harassment where Fox News either leaves out details or takes someone as being 100% truth. The left will immediately fact check the claims and show that Fox distorted the truth.

        It is like the Republican politicians who let their staff plagarize but forget that every speech they make will be fact checked by the left. It does not benefit the right to pretend that the left does not exist.

        • alanstorm

          Nice assertions. No evidence.

          Your WP cite refers to several items per Bill O’Reilly, specifically. I was unaware that he was the totality of Fox News.

          Keep trying! Maybe you’ll learn something.

          Love that bit about FN taking “someone as being 100% truth” (unique phrasing there!) when the MSM has a noted tendency to release democrat press releases, verbatim, as news.

          • jim_m

            Like most of the morons bleating about FOX News he cannot tell the difference between news reporting and commentary and analysis on the news.

            Having thus demonstrate himself to be a complete and utterly ignorant ass we can safely say that his opinions are uninformed and likely to consist solely of left wing talking points that he gets from his masters and he is incapable of the critical thinking necessary to really understand the news.

        • Retired military

          Oh you mean like how CBS showed the NG papers and Dan Rather asserts that even though the papers were obviously faked that the story is true. Gotcha.

    • Retired military

      “What is amazing is the Fox News Channel editors know that everything they say or report will be severely fact checked”

      Whereas the dems are hardly ever fact checked by the press. So they just lie their ass off and the press willingly carries the water for them repeating those lies time and time again.

    • LiberalNightmare

      Hmmm, the only way you would be able to speak intelligently about Fox New’s production quality is if you were watching.

      You sure you want your friends to find out you watch Fox News?

      • 914

        Bias liberal knee-jerk assumption is more likely for the likes of it.

        • LiberalNightmare

          The left trains its minions well.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    I wonder if they’ll look at Big Government’s treatment of Toyota vs. its treatment of GM?

    2001: GM detects the defect during pre-production testing of the Saturn Ion.
    2004: GM recognizes the defect again as the Chevrolet Cobalt replaces the Cavalier
    March 2005: GM rejects a proposal to fix the problem because it would be too costly and take too long.
    September 2007: A NHTSA official emails the agency’s Office of Defects Investigation recommending a probe looking into the failure of air bags to deploy in crashes involving Chevrolet Cobalts and Saturn Ions, prompted by 29 complaints, four fatal crashes and 14 field reports.
    June 1, 2009: GM files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
    July 10, 2009: The U.S. Treasury purchases GM assets, giving the government primary ownership of the company.
    February 2010: NHTSA again recommends a probe looking into problems with air bags in Cobalts; ODI again decides that there is no correlation and drops the matter.
    February 2010: Obama administration’s transportation secretary, Ray LaHood in remarks before a House subcommittee states: “My advice is, if anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it,” he said, sending the company’s stock into a nose dive.

    Only problem is, LaHood was talking about Toyota, not GM. It’s good to be owned by Big Government – bad to be independent and largely non-unionized.

      Yep. It’s good to work for President Mugabe er, obama.

    It was interrupted breaking Malaysian flight news report and it’s not rescheduled to air. It’s not even available on the website to watch

  • chirisdex

    Given how badly modified and badly reality examined almost everything on Fox Information is, plenty of time between the broadcasting of the review and the reaction from the remaining will probably be calculated in moments.
