Fox News Posts Their Ludicrous List of ‘The Biggest Losers of 2022’ – They Left Out a Few

At the end of every year the media is filled with lists that they compile of significant people and events that made the news for the previous twelve months. These lists enumerate the best and/or worst of whatever the topic of the list happens to be. It’s always a subjective exercise that reflects the opinions of whoever was assigned to put the list together.

Donald Trump, Biggest Loser

Consequently, any such list by Fox News can be expected to lean heavily to the right politically. Which is exactly what happened with their “Biggest Losers in Politics” list for 2022. To begin with, the list was curiously short. These lists usually itemize ten or twenty contenders for recognition, but Fox could only manage to scrape up five. That’s likely because they were determined to populate the list with Democrats, but couldn’t find enough to fill their list because it was an unexpectedly good year for Democrats.

Fox News crowned Stacey Abrams as their biggest loser. While she was defeated for the governorship of Georgia, it hardly seems worthy of top dishonors for a Democrat who lost a tight a race in red state. The same thing goes for their second place finisher, Beto O’Rourke of Texas.

Somewhat surprisingly, Fox News put Donald Trump in at third. At least they had him on the list, but by any rational standard he would have been first. After all, not only did most of his endorsed candidates in contested races lose, but his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel was raided by the FBI where they found hundreds of illegally hoarded classified documents. And the Congress has issued criminal referrals to the Department of Justice for those crimes, as well as others related to his having incited the insurrection on January 6, 2021, and for obstruction justice.

Fox’s list was rounded off with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and Herschel Walker, whose losses have nothing in common. Maloney lost due to a badly gerrymandered redistricting, while Walker lost because he’s Trumpian moron who never should have run.

The most ridiculous thing about this Fox News list was what was left off of it. They apparently didn’t think that the humiliation of losers like Kari Lake, Blake Masters, Dr. Oz, Kanye West, Elon Musk, Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon, or Vladimir Putin, deserved any mention at all.

The best justification for Trump to have been declared the biggest loser is that he had a prominent role in contributing to the pathetic losses of everyone just listed above. That’s actually a pretty remarkable achievement.

The only list missing this year so far, is the one that Trump might produce himself. Although there is still time, and now that he has posted his nightmarish Christmas greeting, he is free to put his own “Worst of 2022” list together. Not that we can’t all predict what it would look like. And of course, it would lead off with Trump’s arch enemy, President Biden…

Donald Trump’s Presumptive Best of the Worst of 2022:

  1. Joe Biden
  2. Mitch McConnell
  3. The “Fake” News Media
  4. Radical Left Marxist Democrats
  5. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
  6. The January 6th Committee
  7. Immigrants/Refugees
  8. NY Attorney General Letitia James
  9. Democracy
  10. America

Honorary Mentions: Liz Cheney and other so-called “RINOS,” including most of Trump’s former cabinet secretaries, and the few relatively decent Republican members of Congress who voted for his impeachments.

Fox News ‘Doctor’ Attacks Stacy Abrams for Fetal Heartbeat Comment that He Later Admits is True

Fox News has never been a particularly good source for medical information. To the contrary, with respect to COVID-19 they have a long record of disseminating crackpot conspiracy theories and fake cures that resulted in the deaths of untold thousands of people. They were literally killing off their own viewers.

Fox News, Covid

Throughout the pandemic, Fox News was instrumental in spreading disinformation. When they weren’t denying that there was any serious public health issue at all, they were promoting quack cures like hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. And among the most frequent distributors of deadly misinformation was their “Medical A-Team” “doctor,” Marc Siegel, who insisted that COVID was no more dangerous than the common flu.

RELATED: SURPRISE! Those Who Trust Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN Believe the Most COVID Misinformation

On Friday Fox News brought in Siegel again to dispense his unique brand of bullpucky. The segment was about comments made by Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate, Stacy Abrams, on abortion and one argument in particular that anti-choice activists cling to. Abrams was addressing claims that a fetal heartbeat can heard in ultrasound exams. Host Dana Perino played a clip of Abrams saying that…

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

That’s a factual statement that credible medical professionals will attest to. The ultrasound machine actually inserts sounds when it encounters certain fetal activity. It is a product of the machine itself, rather than amplification of any existing sound. But that isn’t how Siegel portrayed it in this interview.

Responding to Perino’s question, “Can you hear a heartbeat at six weeks in a pregnancy?” Siegel hedged at first, calling Abrams’ comments “outrageous,” followed by a short historical outline of how ultrasound was invented and it’s contribution to medicine. He seemed to be implying that Abrams was criticizing the existence of the machine, which is absurd. He eventually circled back to the question and his reply actually affirmed what Abrams had said (video below):

“I gotta tell you that you can see at six weeks that a fetus is forming. There’s no heart there, there’s no valves, but you are seeing a fluttering, a flickering of electrical activity. That’s the beginning of a heart. So you can debate all day when an actual heart occurs, but that is the beginning of flickering, of fluttering of life there where the heart is gonna be.”

So Siegel is acknowledging that there is no heart present at six weeks, and thus no heartbeat. He tries to contort his response into the Fox News narrative by talking about some future fetal development that hasn’t yet occurred. But the fact remains that Abrams was right and Siegel is reluctantly, but expressly, concurring with her.

That’s the sort of disreputable blather that Siegel has made a career on on Fox News. He was, after all, the guy Fox News turned to to interview Donald Trump about his infamous cognition exam where he claims to have correctly identified an elephant and recalled the five words “person, woman, man, camera, TV”

Siegel never bothered to interject that Trump’s assessment of that test was preposterous. He stood there and nodded blankly as Trump proclaimed that the test revealed his extraordinary mental prowess. It’s a moment in the media that exposed both Siegel and Trump as mentally deficient and brazenly dishonest.

Fox News Grossly Distorts Stacey Abrams’ Remarks About Living in Georgia

It’s always a simple matter to determine what and who Fox News is most afraid of at any given moment. It’s revealed in the most obvious manner in how they parcel out their outrage and air time. And as the Republican primary for governor in Georgia approaches, Fox News is, once again, showing their cards.

Donald Trump, Hell Hole

The Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia, Stacey Abrams, is running unopposed in her Party. That’s providing her with a significant advantage over the Republicans who are battling over their current governor, Brian Kemp, and the Donald Trump endorsed challenger, David Perdue, who is presently behind by more than thirty points. Trump despises Kemp because he refused to obey Trump’s illegal commands to overturn Georgia’s election results that affirmed Joe Biden’s victory.

RELATED: Trump’s Impotent and Insane Letter Asking Georgia to ‘Decertify’ the 2020 Election

In an effort to impede Abrams’ momentum, The “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends did a segment that was wholly derogatory and dishonest (video below). They played a portion of a recent speech that they deceptively edited and took completely out of context, focusing on a sentence fragment that they could mangle into something incendiary and misleading. What Abrams actually said was that…

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live. Now, somebody’s gonna try to PolitiFact me on this, so let me contextualize. When you’re number 48 for mental health, when we’re number one for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that’s on the rise and wages that are on the decline, then you are not the number one place to live in the United States. But we can get there.”

The part that Fox News glommed onto was the snippet about Georgia being “the worst state in the country to live.” Knowing that unscrupulous right-wingers would try to twist her words, she immediately made it clear that she was talking about some of the areas in which the current GOP governor was failing the people and the state.

That’s actually a common campaign message by a candidate for any office who is challenging an incumbent. You point out the shortcomings of your opponent and explain how you will improve things. And that’s what Abrams did, even promising a brighter future saying that “we can get there.”

However, Fox News left out the optimistic part of Abrams’ speech so that they could falsely accuse her of insulting the state she’s running to lead. And they totally ignore the realities of campaigning that include exposing your opponent’s weaknesses.

What makes this all the more despicable is that Fox News never holds Republicans to the same standard. Especially not their Dear Leader Trump. There is no politician in modern times who has been more offensive in maligning America than Trump. He often refers to the U.S. as weak and stupid. And his vile, anti-patriotic attacks frequently cast the U.S. as a province of Hades. For instance…

Despite Trump’s obvious contempt for America, his disdain for Gov. Kemp is even greater. So he gave a sort of backhanded endorsement to Abrams last September saying that “having her I think might be better than having your existing governor.” What’s more, his anti-Kemp crusade has produced a backlash that is causing Republicans to vow not to vote for Kemp next November.

That could put Abrams in the awkward position of having to thank Trump for his help during her victory speech. Not that Trump really deserves thanks just for being a hate-filled ignoramus.

Fox News and Republicans are Lying Extra Hard to Confuse Everyone About Voting Reform

Ever since Joe Biden humiliated Donald Trump – beating him by more than seven million votes – the despondent Cult of Trump has whined that Trump didn’t really lose. They continue to cling desperately to the “Big Lie” that the election was rigged and that the presidency was stolen. These are the fantastical delusions that led to the deadly Capitol Hill insurrection of January 6th.

Fox News, Constitution

However, despite having seven months, sixty court cases (all of which they lost), and unlimited hours of right-wing media on Fox News and elsewhere, they have never been able to provide even a sliver of evidence to support their hysterical, fringe-dwelling theories. Consequently, many Republican governors and legislators have turned their focus to future elections and a full-bore campaign of voter suppression.

That effort was met by Democrats in Congress who introduced the For the People Act,” a package of voting reforms aimed at preserving democracy. It hasn’t been easy. The conservative Democratic senator from West Virginia, Joe Manchin, has been, until recently, gumming up the works. But now he has released his compromise version of the bill which has been positively received, even by the foremost advocate of voting reform, Stacy Abrams.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been enough to move the knee-jerk Republican obstructionists. In fact, they just became even more committed to their anti-democratic agenda. That was plainly evident in this exchange between Dana Perino of Fox News and GOP Senator Tom Cotton (video below):

Perino: One thing that’s a little puzzling about this is that Manchin Lite is very similar to the Georgia voting bill. And the Georgia voting bill, Stacy Abrams said, is Jim Crow 2. So you could be a little confused as to what the Democrats are actually trying to do here. Do you have any idea?
Cotton: I’ll confess I’m always confused whenever Stacy Abrams is advocating for some radical voting proposal. But Dana, I think it’s pretty clear what the Democrats are trying to do. S1 is the Democrats bill to rig our elections forever. They can’t pass their unpopular agenda, so rather than changing their agenda, they want to change the rules of our democracy.

Okay. Try to follow this. Perino says that Manchin’s compromise is similar to the Georgia bill that Democrats staunchly oppose as blatant voter suppression. But it isn’t similar at all. So it’s not surprising that Abrams supports the Manchin compromise, but not the Georgia bill. Then Cotton admits that he’s confused, which shouldn’t surprise anyone either. But he also complains that Manchin’s compromise is a “radical voting proposal,” which Perino just said is very similar to the Georgia bill. So Cotton is bashing as radical the ultra-conservative Georgia bill that he has previously praised.

Don’t hurt yourself trying to make any sense of this. It is a profoundly ludicrous stab at disparaging any attempt to restore fairness to America’s voting processes. Cotton continued in his dishonest misrepresentations by claiming that “This bill would require taxpayer funding of politician’s campaigns.” That’s a flaming lie. The proposals that make up Manchin’s compromise are clearly spelled out. They include…

  • Automatic voter registration
  • Making election day a holiday
  • Mandating at least 15 days of early voting for federal elections
  • Banning partisan gerrymandering
  • Voter ID provisions

However, nowhere in the list is anything suggesting taxpayer funded political campaigns. Cotton has to know this. He’s presenting himself as knowledgeable about the proposed legislation. He has even made a determination that it would be unconstitutional because “the states have primary authority under our Constitution to regulate our election systems.” However, he’s flat out wrong about that as well. Article I, Section 4, Clause 1 of the Constitution states that…

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.”

What we have here is a Republican senator purposefully lying in order to muddy the waters so that people can’t have a rational understanding of perhaps the most significant feature of American democracy, the sanctity of the vote. And he’s doing it with the full cooperation and complicity of Fox News. It’s because of deliberate transgressions against the American people like this that we must remain vigilant and committed to achieving real reform despite the obstacles in our way.

Republicans on Fox News Favor ‘Faith Based’ Elections Over Actual Democracy

For over a month now, Donald Trump has been stubbornly insisting that he won the election, despite Joe Biden receiving seven million votes more than Trump and a 306 to 232 electoral college victory. Defying reality, Trump continues to whine about alleged voter fraud for which he has no proof. He’s already lost about four dozen lawsuits for lack of evidence.

Donald Trump Hugs Flag

Meanwhile, Fox News remains steadfastly on Trump’s side, disseminating blatant lies and conspiracy theories in support of Trump’s manic delusions. On Monday morning Fox hosted disgraced former GOP Speaker, Newt Gingrich to advance the phony election fraud story (video below). The segment was intended to bolster the vain hopes of glassy-eyed Trump cultists, and on that measure, Gingrich did not disappoint with this ludicrous diatribe:

“This election is gonna come down to turnout. The objective fact is, I believe Trump probably did actually carry Georgia.”

There is an obvious logical flaw in that commentary. Notice that Gingrich is describing what he “believes” as an “objective fact.” Beliefs are, by definition, not facts. It’s like saying “there’s a pink elephant in my living room, and if you don’t believe me, just ask him.” This analogy also works because Newt’s contention that Trump won Georgia is about as real as that elephant. Gingrich continued…

I believe that the election process is a mess. I really wish the governor would call a special session to clean it up. And the Republicans simply have to turn out more votes than Stacey Abrams can steal.”

There he goes again, relying on his “beliefs” to justify complex and expensive legislative activities for which there is no discernible reason. Even worse, Gingrich is now accusing Stacey Abrams of committing felony election fraud – without a sliver of evidence – for an election that is still a month away. And he continues further…

“Every person who’s worried about the future of the country, from a conservative standpoint, has to go vote. And that’s the number one challenge. Not the debate or the arguments. Just getting people to vote in this runoff.”

That’s the sort of inspirational rhetoric that Republicans specialize in. Never mind making persuasive, logical arguments based on facts and reason. Just drag your bones to polls and place your mark on the bottom line like you’re told to do. Be good sheeple and Dear Leader will reward you in the Beyond World.

It’s notable that nobody on Fox and Friends bothered to challenge Gingrich’s lies and irresponsible guidance. Even though Fox News called the election for Joe Biden way back on November 7, and Georgia’s votes have been counted three times without any change in the outcome. The “news” reported on Fox is disposable if it doesn’t affirm the fantastical beliefs of the Trumpists. That’s the “Faith Based” model of journalism that dominates the right-wing media. And Gingrich, and his Fox Friends are merely the televangelists of this pseudo-spirituality.

Racist Fox News Hosts Smear Democrat Stacey Abrams as Promoting an ‘MS-13 Blue Wave’

It really doesn’t take much to set off the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends when a Republican candidate is trouble. That’s the current state of the gubernatorial election in Georgia where Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams is in a dead heat with her GOP opponent Brian Kemp. This is a deep red state where Democrats aren’t supposed to win, so Fox News has bolted onto the scene to muck it up.

Fox News, Stacey Abrams

On Sunday morning’s episode of Fox and Friends (video below), the three co-hosts set out to malign Abrams, who would be the first African-American women governor in the U.S. But they had to manufacture a controversy by taking her comments out of context so they could align her with criminal gangs. Co-host Ed Henry began by saying:

“As if on cue, Stacey Abrams, who is the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Georgia […] sounds like, she thinks at least, that that the Blue Wave is gonna include illegal immigrants voting.”

Then they run a video clip of Abrams saying:

“The thing is that the Blue Wave is African-Americans. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian-Pacific Islanders. It is made up of those who were told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented.”

Coming out of the video, Henry says that “If you’re undocumented you’re not supposed to be able to vote.” Whereupon his co-host Pete Hegseth asks:

“What should we label it? Is it an illegal Blue Wave? An alien Blue Wave? If you’ve got criminal gangs coming across, is it an MS-13 Blue Wave?”

Really? First of all, it needs to noted that Abrams was not talking about voters. And nowhere in the clip that Fox played did she say that. She was talking about all of the people who can contribute to an awakening of progressive change in the country. That includes many people who don’t vote but care about the direction this nation takes. It includes students who are not yet eighteen, like the survivors of the Parkland massacre. It includes Dreamers who fulfill every criteria of citizenship except for the technicality that they are undocumented. And it includes the tens of thousands of citizens in Georgia that are being unlawfully removed from the voter rolls by a corrupt Republican secretary of state who happens to be Brian Kemp, Abrams’ opponent.

However, for Fox News to go so low as to associate Abrams with the MS-13 gang is way beyond the pale. As an aside, the MS-13 gang did not come across the border. It’s a home grown gang from southern California. Nevertheless, this proves that Fox News has a complete lack of integrity, honesty, and ethics. And it proves their intention to advance a racist theme that African-American candidates must be connected to criminal elements simply because of the color of their skin. It’s a theme that Fox’s audience will readily accept due to the priming they’ve had from years of watching Fox.

There is going to be a Blue Wave in November, and Fox News is going to have to live with it. Of course, they will lie their butts off and spread bigoted propaganda like they did here, but they can’t prevent the coming progressive tsunami by exposing how hateful and prejudiced they are. They are just going to make matters worse for themselves and the Republican Party they are shilling for as America becomes more diverse. And maybe Democrats and progressives should welcome any actions they take to destroy their own Deplorable right-wing.
