On Fox: Hypocrisy. What Else?

June 30th, 2010

Jon Stewart, as usual, has the goods. In short: Fox castigates the Obama administration for bringing up things that happened under Bush when explaining their reaction to the oil spill. Fox & Friends was livid that David Axelrod “blamed” the Bush administration for the oil spill. (Their “interpretation” of his comments. In fact, Axelrod mentioned the economy and the wars in the Middle East as distractions, and at least at that point in time did not lay blame for the spill directly on Bush.) This interpretation of an indirect comment by Axelrod was what set them off. According to Fox and Republicans & other right-wingers, you can’t “keep blaming Bush.”

Stewart points out that not only did right-wingers blame Clinton for things that happened during the entirety of the Bush administration, but just two weeks earlier, F&F blamed Clinton for the oil spill. So, after a year and a half, it’s “weak” and “unserious” to (by their interpretation) blame Bush for stuff he was, um, directly responsible for, but it’s OK to go back nine and a half years and more and somehow find a way to blame Clinton for the oil spill.

Whilst this level of hypocrisy is more or less SOP at F&F, it still has to be seen to be fully appreciated, and nobody takes us there like Stewart. Enjoy.

    The clip speaks for itself. No comments!
    Thank you for sharing with us, Luis. Jon Stewart makes me to regret I dumped the cable and watching through air channels.
