I liked it when Fox had short skirted Megan shake it up to their election geek room while Karl Rove insisted the math showed Romney would win Ohio and therefore the election.
Great camera work.
Lousy, dead wrong news reporting, but great camera work!
330-206, girls. Get a math book next time you go shopping for stockings.
Camera Obscura has obscured the facts. Rove did not say Romney would win Ohio he said is was too early to tell. He said "I think this is premature...I don't know what the outcome is going to be but we gotta be careful about calling things when there is 991 votes separating the two candidates and the quarter of the vote yet to count".
Fox news disagreed with Rove and called Ohio for Obama. Megan Kelly said that Ohio was won by Obama and that Rove was wrong. That was because the votes that were left to count were primarily in solid democrat areas such as Cuyahoga county and the Democrat lead would only widen.
Check out the actual news clip
It was 332-206, not 330. Quite the landslide by the American voter.
Thanks for the link, FNF. Rather amusing to re-watch Fox from that night and afterward, especially the silly deconstruction. I found Gretchen memorable, blaming single women for the Romney fiasco, apparently because of loose morals.
Gretchen Carlson -- married women vote more on the economy: "because when you're married, abortion is not really—or contraception for that matter—is not maybe a huge part of your life."
In Gretchy's strange world, only single women have sex, only married women have children. Must be an awful marriage, poor Gretchen. Still, I agree with FNF, Fox is always good for a laugh or two, and the eye-candy glam, if you like the look.
The must be doing something right at Fox because they continue to beat everyone else in the ratings:
It could be the very attractive women with gleaming teeth, shiny, wet lipstick and well oiled legs... or just the fact that conservative and Republican viewpoints cannot be found anywhere else on the dial.
The legs do sell!
The SciFi channel does really well, because fictional scifi - cannot be found anywhere else on the dial.
Ratings as the arbiter of a network? Well, Duck Dynasty, 9.6 million viewers. The OreillyFactor, 3 million, with hypocritical 'moralist' Billo (the Andrea Mackris harasser) beating all his talking head competitors, hands down. Web Link
There ya go.
Yes, I equate Billo with pogonophoran, but that's just me. Well, just me, and anyone who's listened to his audiobook.
pogonophoran? Had to look it up. Nice. It does match Mr. O'Reilly, especially that profanity laced tirade when he was doing the tabloid national enquirer show, Current Edition or whatever it was. Well worth a view and a laugh.
