Bill Maher needs to shut up about Dems going on FAUX

They are a propaganda outfit and Dems shouldn’t legitimize them.

1. I don't know. I enjoyed Jon Steward's several interviews on Faux a lot. And let's not forget ...

Steward being there just to support Sept 11 first responder legislation.

3. Lately, Maher Has Seemed More and More Like a Grumpy Old Man

Maher likes to hear himself talk and doesn't give his guests much of an opportunity to speak. I used to enjoy his show more; lately, not so much. As far as Dems going on Fox, why would they? The moderators are rude and abusive to Dems, and consistently interrupt and shout them down. It's worse than having an argument with your teenager. Who in their right mind would willingly subject themselves to that kind of pointless abuse? I say bravo to the DNC for their decision to boycott Fox.

8. Going on Fux is not for every Dem. But the ones who can get their points/shots in etc..should

absolutely go on. One of the conditions of the interview is let me speak. That's why we have to hear KellyScum go on and on rather then get cut off right away.

4. Why not change the title of this thread, to Bill Maher sucks?

 

I haven't seen anyone respond to why it is terrible for a Democrat to go on Fox. I think it is a great idea. First of all it shows the zombie viewers that a Democrat who goes on Fox has to have guts. Second of all if the person who goes on Fox kicks some ass, that most certainly won't give Fox credibility now will it?

Just because Bernie has the guts to go on Fox and your candidate doesn't quit making excuses for your candidates lack of courage or ability to handle tough questions.

I disagree with Bill Maher on a lot of issues, but he is spot on about going on Fox. Wasn't it Adam Schiff who promised Bill that he would go on Fox? If so, when will the Adam Schiff bashing begin?

6. FAUX is a propaganda outfit

 

Dems going on FAUX just legitimizes them as a news organization.

7. Of course it should be done with their more respectable anchors. But see going on faux would

be 'impure' and why 'legitimize' them. Faux ain't going anywhere it would be good to shine a little sunlight ova there.

5. Why Eric Swalwell goes on Faux

"it's the only time my parents get to see me on TV. They're Republicans."

Plus he's not afraid to appear on Faux. He takes a pretty good chunk of their ass with him when he leaves every time. If any Democrat doesn't think they can do the same thing, then no, they should not appear on Faux.
