Behar: Fox News Hijacking The Narrative

From ABC’s henfest of harridan haters, ‘The View,’ via YouTube:

President Obama On ‘The View’

(Starting at about 6 minutes into the clip.)

BEHAR: Can I follow up on something?

OBAMA: Yeah.

BEHAR: I mean, because you’ve really done a lot I think. I mean, you’ve signed two hundred plus laws into being, since you’re in office.

Note that Ms. Behar considers this to be a good thing.

You have… financial reform has taken place, you’ve got a health care, I mean, you’ve put two women on the Supreme Court [sic], I could go on and on.

Most of these things listed are remarkably unpopular with Americans as a whole.

And yet the right wing, through Fox News, they seem to be hijacking the narrative.

Notice that even Joy Behar is enough of a media insider to realize that there is a narrative to the so-called news.

Note too, that the Democrat media complex of networks and cable channels, of Hollywood and the theater, of the arts and education – all of those are not enough for Ms. Behar.

They still cannot stop Fox News from controlling “the narrative.” Which, after all, is the left’s birthright.

Where, on your side, is the narrative? Where is your attack dog to come out and tell the American people, "Listen, this is what we did"?

OBAMA: Joy, that’s your job.

BEHAR: Well, I do!

This is a remarkably telling exchange. First, Mr. Obama admits that controlling the narrative is the job of the media. And then Ms. Behar says she is trying her best to do that job. To be Mr. Obama’s ‘attack dog.’

Needless to say, we have known this to be the case for a long time. But it’s nice to see them finally admit it so openly.


OBAMA: Www-well, well, let me, well, well, let me say this: When times are tough, as they have been, naturally there’s going to be a political argument that’s going on out there. And uh, again, I volunteered for this job. And politics is not bean bag, I mean, politics is a contact sport and you expect people going af… at you.

The one thing that does frustrate, uh, frustrate me sometimes is the sense that… you know, we shouldn’t be campaigning all the time… You know, there’s a time to campaign, and then there’s a time to govern, and what we’ve tried to do over the last twenty months is to govern

It’s hard to tell from clip if Mr. Obama’s last remarks were meant to be a joke. We assume it was, since all he does is campaign.

Of course, this might very well be how a community organizer does “govern.”

And after all, when you elect a professional rabble rouser, you really can’t complain when he spends all of his time rousing the rabble.

    Just as Nancy Piglousy has Charley Rangel as her houseboy; dingleBarry has Joy Behar as his personal bowling ball.

    Interestingly, with FOX news representing a mere fraction of the total “news” outlets, the socialists demonstrate beyond a doubt that what they fear the most is the truth. This has always been the case and why FOX, as well as all the new media, as well as Rush and a handful of other talk radio hosts must never cease.

    Even when I was in my 20’s I learned that the alphabet media was pandering to the sound-bite, snippet, get-your-emotions-in-a-knot public. When Rush arrived in 1988, it was a breath of fresh air. Then, adding to that, the computer revolution gave us an avalanche of honest in-depth coverage of events and of course, Steve with this website dissects news stories to show their obvious bias and destructive intent.

    But to Ms Behar, all I have to say is, “The truth hurts, don’t it?”

    200+ laws, that’s 10 a month. Tell me the boy who sits in the president’s chair ISN’T a socialist/communist…..

    It seems to me that the only hijacking being done here is that the United States of America is being hijacked by a socialist/fascist regime. If these guys had been as open about their goals for our country 40 years ago, they would have all been shot as traitors. Actually they were open about their goals, but nobody took them seriously because it could never happen in America. But after 40 years of liberal indoctrination in our schools, and the liberal adgenda hammered into our conciousness by the useful idiots in the mainscream media, the people are blind to the revocation of their precious freedoms. Welcome to never in America land.

    Something is wrong with Behar’s brain. That’s one sick woman.

  5. AmericanIPA says:

    “Hijacking the narrative” = allowing the truth to come out, or removing the gloss and positive spin from all of the left’s totally unpopular actions.

    “You have a healthcare”= I can’t translate this. It’s just too stupid to deal with.

    That part about Obama not wanting to campaign is just hilarious. He stopped there for a couple of days and his handlers had to send him back out because it’s all he’s ever done with any kind of success. Well, that and write biographies of himself. Should be about time for another one of those by now. I mean, it’s been almost five years since his second autobiography came out.

    I don’t think most people on the left can even muster up any real indignation about the accusation that they control the media (or the narrative as Ms. Dimwit puts it). It’s just laughable to pretend that the leftists don’t control the media now. Nobody with half a brain–I know that doesn’t include anyone on the View’s panel or many of their guests–thinks the media isn’t completely on the side of the democratic politician and way of life.

    The View was pre-taped & edited, but Obama still sounded like a stuttering robot. Most all talk shows who say it’s live, and we have to break for a commercial were running out of time are all pre-taped.

    How can Obama keeps making statements “‘we’ shouldn’t be campaigning all the time. We should be governing”, when he is the most guilty party and has done nothing but. Aside every democratic candidate, he visits businesses everyday too.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Only the businesses he stole away from the private market and gave to the Unions.
