Why are so many Fox News programs taped without audiences?

Looking for a certain RP comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

Echo Chamber

fox news dinosaurs Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher all tape their programs before live audiences. Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck don't.

The pussies.

The reason is pretty clear as any normal audience would groan in pain at the inanities belched out by the Fox "talent". Such a spectacle wouldn't make for good television. It wouldn't catapult the propaganda very well, either.

Just sayin'.


As for Anthony Wiener's wiener, who the hell cares? He's still one of my favorite legislators if for no other reason than the time he stood before Congress and told the American people, twice, that the Republican Party "is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry". Veddy nice.

It was, of course, bone-headed of him to post such personal images of himself online, however briefly, but testosterone has been long known to wither brain cells, so anything is possible with men. However, unlike his Republican brethren, who generally campaign nonstop on the strength of their iron-clad marriages before getting caught in airport bathrooms with little boys and the occasional goat, Wiener was always known as a Washington playboy. Frankly, I'm more surprised that he even bothered to get married.

The only thing about this episode that bothers me is I'll now have to endure endless dick jokes for the next week or so from every corner of the 'net. Oh, joy.

The following is #37 in a list of accomplishments by the GOP since they gained control of the House in 2011. None have yet to result in one, single new job.

(37) Conceived a plan to replace three federal employees with just one federal employee. Yes, they're now actually reducing jobs.

Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? They're misrepresenting the effectiveness of the economic stimulus package of 2009.
