Meet Fox News’ Latest Contract Contributor

Media Matters for America reports that Fox News has now hired Roger Stone as a contributor. Who is Roger Stone? He’s a Nixon-era political “dirty trickster” who thinks misogyny is the best way to attack Hillary Clinton. Think I’m kidding? I’m not.

Fox News states twice on its website that Republican political strategist Roger Stone is now a “Fox News contributor,” a title given to those with network contracts. Stone is a “professional dirty trickster” who once formed an anti-Hillary Clinton group with the acronym “C.U.N.T.” after he tried “to come up with words for B.I.T.C.H. and just couldn’t do it.”…

The conservative Weekly Standard has described Stone as a “professional dirty trickster and high priest of political hijinks.” In a 2012 profile, New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman wrote that “Stone thinks politics has gotten a lot less interesting since those Nixon days. For one, there are ‘fewer and fewer’ dirty tricks.”

Shameless smears are the currency of Stone’s career:

Established Anti-Hillary Clinton Group C.U.N.T. In 2008, Stone established the anti-Hillary Clinton group Citizens United Not Timid, which also went by the acronym C.U.N.T. The group claimed to “educate the American public about what Hillary Clinton really is” and sold shirts emphasizing the acronym. Stone explained of the group’s name: “The truth is, we sat around for hours trying to come up with words for B.I.T.C.H. and just couldn’t do it.” Below is the logo of the now-defunct group:

And here that logo is:

    there are ‘fewer and fewer’ dirty tricks

    No, there are fewer and fewer stupid dirty tricks thought up by morons. Instead you have things like voter ID laws which are not exactly the result of genius but far above Stone’s level of intelligence.

    For one, there are ‘fewer and fewer’ dirty tricks.”

    They have not disappeared entirely.
    GOP Operative Pulls Election “Shenanigans” In New York House Race

    Wisconsin GOP files complaint in Paul Ryan’s race

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A well-known protester who says he’s running against Congressman Paul Ryan because they share a last name should be kicked off the primary ballot for misleading prospective voters into thinking they were signing up to legalize marijuana, Wisconsin Republicans argued Thursday…

    Both cases included an attempt to get someone on the ballot with the same surname as the candidate from the other party.

    To educate the American Public about what Hillary Clinton really is.

    Hillary Clinton is female. But really, I don’t think most of the American public needs to have that explained to them.

    …who thinks misogyny is the best way to attack Hillary Clinton.

    It might well be. Hate is an all time best seller and the foundation of fundie xianity. The weird, angry old white men who run and vote for the GOP aren’t going to have a problem with misogyny.

    Racism was and is a highly effective way to attack…the Moslem, Kenyan terrorist in the White House currently.

    It’s amazing to me that anyone of more than middle-school age would have considered that logo (or, for that matter, that acronym) a good idea. It’s not only misogynistic, it’s downright juvenile.

    Well it worked for Mary Whitehouse … Oh wait, it didn’t!

    (In her case it was Clean Up National Television although that may be apocryphal and if true was soon changed upon realisation of acronym – not something done deliberately for fucks sake!)

    Can’t wait to see Hilary Clinton as President of the USA. Wonder if the fools currently spewing about Obama (B–b–but he’s bleck!!) will manage to top their previous efforts at Teh Cwazzzzeee!!!!! shit once she’s in charge?

    Hey ‘dodgy’ Roger Stone how about:

    Fox News – keeping it classy since ‘Married with Children’.

    There’s no “may have been” about it, as I’ve pointed out to you before. The story is from a “docudrama”, Filth, The Mary Whitehouse Story. But then, your inability to tell fact from stories that happen to appeal to your prejudices is well known, as recently demonstrated in your ludicrous account of the foundation of the state of Israel.

    Does their logo make anyone else think of a large white guy wearing a thong ?

    It’s clearly a martini glass of blue curaçao with a star-shaped ice cube.

  10. dingojack says

    Synfandel – and here is how you make it. (Replace the olive with ice from a five-pointed star icecube tray).
    Dingo

  11. Synfandel says

    Oh, Dingo, I’ve sworn off booze until I’ve lost some weight, but that martini looked SO tasty!

  12. says

    He couldn’t come up with words five words to fit b, i, t, c, and h? Must have a shameful vocabulary. “Block Intrusive Totalitarian Clinton Hegemony” off the top of my head …. and yes it’s a mouthful, but that’s what acronyms are bloody for!

    Oh he’s just Another Short-sighted Simpleton Haranguing Others with Libelous Epithets

    Up here in Canada we really did have the Conservative Reform Alliance party for a couple of days. I think they should have kept the name, as it described their platform perfectly.
