Faux News Follies! A Racist, a Moron, and a Liar

First up…Newly unemployed Faux News bigot.

Fox Sports reporter attacks Latina valedictorian: ‘I didn’t know Mexicans were that smart’

Reporter Emily Austen has been taken off the air by Fox Sports after she was caught on video making racist comments about Mexican, Jewish and Chinese people.

While participating in a Facebook video broadcast for Barstool Sports, the 27-year-old sports reporter and others appearing on the show mocked 18-year-old Mayte Lara Ibarra, who recently revealed that she was her high school’s valedictorian and an undocumented immigrant.

“I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart,” Austen quipped to her co-hosts during the Barstool Sports broadcast.

She also asserted that “the Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class” and that Jewish people are “stingy.”

As a result of the tirade, Fox Sports said that Austen, who is a contract employee, would not be participating in future broadcasts.

“We were made aware that Emily Austen appeared in a social media video unaffiliated with Fox Sports in which she made insensitive and derogatory comments,” Fox Sports Florida General Manager Steve Tello said in a statement. “She was not speaking on behalf of Fox Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video. Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming Fox Sports Florida or Fox Sports Sun broadcasts.”

Then there is Geraldo, whose IQ level has devolved every minute he has spent on Faux…Suggesting the Orlando victims were cowards.

On ‘Fox and Friends,’ Geraldo Rivera says Orlando victims didn’t fight for their lives

On Monday morning, Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera appeared on Fox and Friends and took the opportunity to criticize the victims of Saturday night’sterrorist attack on the LGBT club Pulse in Orlando, Florida.

Media Matters reported that Rivera said, “When you’re in that situation and you have no weapons, you have two choices. If you can’t hide and you can’t run, you have two choices. You stay and die, or you fight. For God’s sakes, fight back. Fight back.”

He continued, “There’s 100 people that he murdered with one weapon that he reloaded. When he reloaded they must, people must, America must understand, we are at war with Islamic terror, with these terrorists. We’ve got to stop them in Raqqa, we’ve got to stop them in Mosul, and we’ve got to stop them in the Pulse, Orlando.”

Rivera’s charge that the crowd didn’t display proper courage and determination neglects to bear in mind that research has shown that mass shooter scenarios are completely chaotic situations where even experienced tactical personnel have been known to freeze or become disoriented.

Law enforcement officials and safety experts say that the smartest course of action in any active shooter situation is to escape the area as quickly as possible.

Failing at everything else, it’s the old standby lying – “It’s Obama’s fault!”

Fox wrongly reports that Obama wants to ban armored helmet that saved cop’s life in Orlando

As police stormed the Pulse nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning, the shooter fired at a police officer wearing a Kevlar helmet. While the officer was harmed, he survived — and his helmet saved his life.

In an interview with former New York City Police Department detective and a media personality, Bo Dietl, “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocy asked why the Obama administration was “pushing to take away life-saving armor,” Media Matters reports.

The fact is, neither the Kevlar helmet nor the BearCat vehicle used to punch through the wall of the club to allow police access to the scene are on the list of prohibited police equipment created in May 2015. The order aimed to keep local police departments from buying some items with federal dollars.

“And yet, it wasn’t that long ago where we heard a number of people from the political left say, ‘You know what, the local police departments have too much heavy artillery. We really have to take that stuff away from them,’” he said.

Fox News has yet to clarify the error to its audience. It’s unclear how a former police detective like Dietl also doesn’t have the facts on equipment.

Roland Martin Calls Out O’Reilly As a Liar on Cops and BLM!

That’s right, he said it!

And challenged the chicken-winged chickenpoop to a debate.

And I quote:

The reality is this: Black Lives Matter has forced a level of accountability in America dealing with police that we have never seen. And the people to blame for crime going up are these sorry cops who don’t wanna do their job, but they want to draw their paychecks, and they want their pension. They’re the ones who are not doing their jobs, they’re the ones who should be patrolling. And I’ll say this, if you’re a cop doing stuff right, you shouldn’t be afraid if you’re caught on videotape.

…Every time you call out Black Lives Matter, and you’re wrong, I’ma check you, Bill. Because in this case, you’re a flat-out liar. And I’ll say it again, if you want a debate, call me.

Faux News Pundit Looking At 40 Years In Jail For Lying

Well, at least one Faux News pundit’s lies have caught up with him. And he is looking at 40 years in the Federal Pen, for lying about having worked for the CIA, and presenting himself to Faux viewers as an “expert” on National Security – supporting the right wing lie machine.

They should hang his ass for treason, along with the Faux News folks who had him on their shows. Typical of the folks Fox brings on as “analysts” and “experts”, this guy had a long criminal record.

Fox News Pundit Pleads Guilty To Faking CIA Ties

He faces up to 40 years in prison.

A Fox News guest terrorism analyst pleaded guilty on Friday to U.S. charges that he fraudulently claimed to have been a CIA agent for decades, federal prosecutors said.

Wayne Simmons, 62, of Annapolis, Maryland, entered the plea in U.S. district court in Alexandria, Virginia, a Washington suburb, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

The plea came in a hearing in which Simmons changed the not-guilty plea he had made in October.

“His fraud cost the government money, could have put American lives at risk, and was an insult to the real men and women of the intelligence community who provide tireless service to this country,” said Dana Boente, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Simmons had appeared on Fox News, the top-ranked U.S. cable television news network, as an unpaid guest analyst on terrorism since 2002.

A grand jury indicted him in October for portraying himself as an “Outside Paramilitary Special Operations Officer” for the Central Intelligence Agency from 1973 to 2000.

Simmons pleaded guilty to charges of major fraud against the U.S. government, wire fraud and a firearms offense. He faces up to 40 years in prison. Sentencing is set for July 15.

Simmons admitted that he defrauded the government in 2008 when he got work as a team leader in an Army program, and again in 2010 when he was deployed to Afghanistan as an intelligence adviser, the statement said.

He said he made similar false statements in a 2009 bid to get work with the State Department’s Worldwide Protective Service.

Simmons also admitted to defrauding an unidentified woman out of $125,000 in a bogus real estate investment. When he was arrested, Simmons illegally possessed two firearms, which he was barred from having because of prior felonies, including a state conviction and two federal firearms violations.

Larry Wilmore Takes Bill O’Racist To the Woodshed

Wilmore turn up some serious heat on Faux New’s racist commentator Bill O’Reilly,

“Preacher” Larry Wilmore takes Bill O’Reilly to church: “When the f*ck have you ever walked in a poor black neighborhood?”

Bill O’Reilly isn’t just upset at black people for having “tattoos on their foreheads,”he’s angry with those of us who pointed out that all black people don’t have tattoos on their foreheads — and Larry Wilmore is fed up with it.

On The Nightly Show Tuesday, Wilmore didn’t just attack O’Reilly, he needed an entirely new shtick in order to demonstrate the Fox News host’s depravity. He began, as he does, seated. “The worst part is that O’Reilly had the gall to be upset by the backlash from his statements,” he said, before complaining that O’Reilly tried to use “fantasy hands” to wave the racism away.

“You can’t use fantasy hands to describe racism!” Wilmore said. “Fantasy hands are best for saying things like ‘Ta-Da!’”

“And when,” he continued, “when the fuck have you ever walked in a poor black neighborhood? Like I’m supposed to believe you spend your Saturday nights strolling through Compton counting forehead tattoos?”

At this point, Wilmore became so frustrated he had no choice but switch his rhetorical mode entirely. “Talking reasonably isn’t going to do it — I’m going to have to take you to church.”

“The devil has come in Bill O’Reilly’s clothing,” Wilmore proclaimed. “You preach a message about a lack of hard work and motivation, Mr. O’Reilly, but what you fail to see is that black people work twice as hard to gain half as much.”

“It’s not tattoos on our foreheads that condemn us — it is separate but unequal education, and red-line housing, and banks that will not provide us loans, and a criminal justice system designed to keep us in chains.”

“Those are the proverbial forehead tattoos that consecrate the mark of the beast for black people in America. Can I get another ‘Amen’?” he asked the audience.

“We don’t need tattoos on our foreheads,” Preacher Wilmore said, “when all people like Bill O’Reilly see is our inky black skin. Did Eric Garner have a tattoo on his forehead when he was strangled in the street? No! Did Trayvon Martin have a tattoo on his forehead when George Zimmerman decided to end his life?”

Tattoos On Their Foreheads

Tavis Smiley responds to Bill Reilly’s latest racist remarks…

 

Two years ago O’Racist claimed pretty much the same thing in an interview of Sen Paul Ryan…That time moving the tattoos to black folk’s necks…

Larry Wilmore Responds…

“Bill O’Reilly is afraid of this black man”: Roland Martin challenges Fox host to debate “anytime, any day, anywhere”

“You’re not going to sit here and make some stupid comments that ‘most black youth are ill-educated,'” Martin said

On Tuesday, NewsOne Now host Roland Martin weighed in on Bill O’Reilly’s claim that African- and Latino-Americans are unemployable because “they have tattoos on their foreheads,” saying that he would be willing to challenge O’Reilly to a debate “anytime, any day, anywhere.”

One of the NewsOne Now panelists, Angela Rye, complained that “Donald Trump did not push back — he allowed that foolishness to continue. If you want to be president of America, as [Obama] said president ‘of all Americans,’ you need to be able to push back on the stereotypes and the bigotry.”

Instead, Trump allowed it “to be spewed out of this cable host’s mouth.”

Martin jumped in, saying “you’re not going to sit here and make some stupid comments saying ‘most black youth are ill-educated,’ but then you don’t want to have a real discussion about the education system in America. You are not going to sit here and say they’ve got tattoos on their forehead, which is pretty damn stupid.”

He then challenged O’Reilly to a debate, but noted that there’s little chance of that happening. “Bill is afraid of this black man,” he said, but still invited him to debate “in your studio, on the street, at Sylvia’s.” If he really wants to have this conversation, Martin concluded, “let’s roll.”
