Study: Fox News Viewers are Total Hypocrites

with 4 comments

Watching Fox “News” valiantly defend the idea of teenage pregnancy, family privacy and “kids being off-limits” these last few days, got me thinking about the OTHER recent teenage pregnancy that swept the nation this past year: Jamie Lynn Spears.

So, I decided to do a little informal study. Results below:

Here’s Fox “News” viewers on Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy:

“It’s obvious that the Spears family is out of control.”

“I believe that Jamie-Lynn should be fired from Zoey 101.”

“This sends a really bad message to a generation of already sluttified young girls.”

“Seems if the parents were more in control of their children these days, these kind of mistakes may not be happening.”

“Teenage pregnancy is not normal …”

“If our children were actually PARENTED instead of parents’ trying the buddy-buddy route with their children…her mom should feel shamed by this.”

I could go on, but you get the idea.

Now, let’s take a look at what Fox “News” viewers had to say about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy:

“(Bristol) should be congratulated for accepting this responsibility.”

“(Bristol) is a beautiful girl…..and deserves to have this time as a private moment.”

“I feel that it’s not the mistakes your children make that questions your parenting skills”

“The Palins have a everyday problem an they chose to handle it the way thay all see fit an it is not any of our concern except for support .”

“Yes, her daughter is pregnant….I think the fact that they are supporting their daughter with love and sound advice speaks a lot to their devotion to their children.”

Again, you get the idea.

Uh-huh. The incredible thing is that these people actually believe themselves to be “Fair and Balanced”. What do you think? Let me know in the comments…

Anyhow, having now spent WAY TOO much time on the FOX “News” site, I gotta go burn my computer and grab a Silkwood shower.
