They really did it. They really spiked my favorite show.

Santa is White, Jesus was Not

By Cyberquill • 12/15/2013 • 7 Comments

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, who plumes herself on being a “straight news anchor,” has nonplussed the straight-news-seeking among her viewers by anointing with the chrism of “verifiable fact” the notion that both Santa and Jesus were “white” …

Is Christianity a Religion?

By Cyberquill • 11/29/2012 • 2 Comments

Winter solstice drawing nigh and Fox News’s annual war on the “War on Christmas” having kicked into high gear, in the course of this verbal slugfest with the head of some Atheist organization, Bill O’Reilly fiercly puts forth the notion that Christianity is not a religion, but a philosophy. …

The Mystery of the Missing “That”

By Cyberquill • 04/05/2012 • 8 Comments

Just because, on balance, I spend more time defending Fox News against half-witted broadsides by those whose analysis of the network does not appear to extend much beyond regurgitating catchphrases picked right off the Fox-bashing grapevine—i.e., who have fallen for the very type of propaganda they profess to denounce —than I spend joining in the criticism myself, does not mean that nothing which emanates from “the most powerful name in news” ever gives me pause. …

The Oreo Hypothesis

If you desire to hold on to your belief that God created the cosmos on 23 October 4004 BC, as reportedly sleuthed out from Biblical data by the venerable James Ussher in the 17th century AD, then how do you respond when confronted with truckloads of non-trivial astronomical and archeological data that put the age of our planet at roughly four billion and the age of the universe at 13 billion years and change? …

“Fair and Balanced” and the Contrast Factor

By Cyberquill • 07/25/2011 • 6 Comments

Once upon a time, I worked at a restaurant that featured white cloth napkins, neatly folded, on glossy wooden tabletops. After some time, the owner—no idea what had possessed him—suddenly decided he wanted black napkins instead.

Fine. So henceforth, black napkins graced those wooden tabletops.

One day the laundry delivery was late, meaning our funereal napery wasn’t ready for the dinner shift, and the white napkins from before were pressed into service again.

When I came to work that night, a tidal wave of dazzling albescence almost knocked me back out the door. …

The Fox News Paradox

“This network thinks Sarah Palin is a genius, that it’s OK to slaughter any Muslim you see, and that Obama is a Nazi and deserves to be overthrown.” Hard to say whether the commentator who …

The Bigger Clown

In my previous post, I discussed a segment on The O’Reilly Factor in which host Bill O’Reilly had stated several times that President Obama was not a Muslim, that he was not born abroad, and that everyone who thought otherwise was “insane.” …

Mullah Obama?

By Cyberquill • 02/15/2011 • 17 Comments

Surveys have shown that a non-trivial percentage of Americans (roughly one in five) believe President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. Chances are an even greater percentage of Americans hold the Fox News Channel in large measure responsible for perpetuating this perception, along with the notion that Mr. Obama was born not on Oahu, but in Kenya. …

The Second Wiehl

Had I known the manner in which talk radio loudmouth Jim Fate shrugged his mortal coil, I never would have opened the package which contained this intelligence. …
