The Benghazi network

Now that the phony debt ceiling crisis is over, FOX, the Benghazi network 24/7, has gone back to its reporting of phony Obama scandals. They are concentrating on Benghazi for the moment, but I am sure that they will resurrect the phony IRS scandal too. Thus far, no one at FOX has thought to connect all the phony scandals in one narrative. It may be stretching things too far, but really nothing is too far for FOX. They might falsely claim that Solyndra was a CIA false front, approved by the IRS, and used to funnel money and guns to drug dealers in Operation Fast and Furious and arms to terrorists in Libya.

Price of souls

When I occasionally watch FOX for a few moments, I often ask myself how much the commentator is getting from Rupert Murdoch as the price of his/her soul. There are exceptions on FOX, such as Shephard Smith, Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera, who have not sold themselves to the devil, and there may be others. How can they live with themselves when they must know that what they say is untrue? I know the pressures that employees face from their employers and the Citizens United decision has made the situation worse. In our system, you must work to live. Supreme Court decisions and the laws enacted by Congress SHOULD be designed to protect the rights of  individuals. Labor unions performed this function to some extent in the past, but the GOP are warring against unions at the insistence of their masters, the 1%.
