Things I am too hot to care about

It’s the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don’t get it! They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”

–Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, on why young women don’t need to vote

Affordable housing. With hair like this, you don’t need a roof over your head.

Quote of the Day: Veterans take down Fox News for “boobs on the ground” joke

Sixty US veterans from the Truman National Security Project have written an open letter to Fox News’ Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld over their oh-so-funny jokes about Major Mariam Al Mansouri, the female UAE pilot who led airstrikes in Syria.

 “[B]efore you jump to the standby excuse that you were ‘just making a joke’ or ‘having a laugh,’ let the men amongst our number preemptively respond: You are not funny. You are not clever. And you are not excused. Perhaps the phrase ‘boys will be boys’—inevitably uttered wherever misogyny is present—is relevant. Men would never insult and demean a fellow servicemember; boys think saying the word ‘boobs’ is funny.”

Word.

How many more times is the media going to fall for GOP Obamacare lies?

It’s like deja vu all over again! This week the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a report with new analysis of the impact of Obamacare on the economy. The report, which analyzed the economic outlook from 2014-2024, concluded that Obamacare will cause a reduction in the labor force by the end of 2024. 2.3 million workers will drop out of the labor force either by deciding not to work or reducing their hours. Apparently, retiring early sounds a lot better than pulling double shifts at a thankless job so you can keep your health insurance.

The CBO concluded that: “The estimated reduction stems almost entirely from a net decline in the amount of labor that workers choose to supply, ...

Conservative media’s greatest misogynist hits of 2013: Feminism is a sexual perversion that causes statutory rape and more


This year’s greatest misogynist hits from conservative media included gems like, “You shut up.

White teacher shames his Black student for dressing up as Santa, or how the right is waging a war on Christmas

Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh aren’t the only people obsessively invested in Santa’s alleged whiteness. Just last week, a white teacher chastised his Black student for making the mistake of dressing up as Santa.

Headline of the day: Fox News on Syria

Speaking of Syria, the following screen shot of a google news search for the term “Syria” shows how different media present the news about a potential diplomatic solution to the Syrian crisis. As you  see, CNN and CBS emphasize the fact that Syria has said it will hand over its chemical weapons; NBC stresses the “peaceful” nature of the development and The New York Times refers to the diplomatic nature of the deal. Fox News, for its part, acts as if nothing new has happened. It basically says, what is wrong with you people! How can you oppose a strike on Syria when there are chemical weapons there? Thanks for the informative and enlightening perspective, as always, Fox.

TV news channels turn not actually controversial story into an excuse for transphobia

I am so sick of 24-hour news networks. Their insistence that every story be framed as controversial has led to some awful coverage of California’s new law requiring public schools to respect students’ gender identity, which we reported on yesterday. The law’s going to be a big deal in the lives of kids whose shot at academic success was limited by, say, not being able to find a place to change for gym. It’s an important but very basic fix, and there’s no reason for controversy or for folks who aren’t directly benefiting to care, besides being happy for the win. That is unless you’re a bigot. And in the land of 24 hour news, bigots get a great ...
