Another Fox News whine fest

Fox News is all of a doodah because president Obama said something that is blazingly obvious by saying that they demonize the poor. They have gone on a weeklong whine fest about being so unfairly maligned. The Daily Show poses the question of whether this shows that Fox News in merely lacking in self-awareness or is cynical or stupid or just downright evil.

The Daily Show reports, you decide.

    is all of a doodah

    🙂 First time I’ve heard that expression. Evidently, the origin isn’t known. I was amused to learn that the proper Spanish translation of “to go all of a doodah” is “ponerse nerviosísimo” (and to learn that there’s a proper Spanish translation of “to go all of a doodah”).

    Fox News se ha puesto nerviosísimo. Again.

    Well, that explains why my local Fox affiliate has spent all morning on the water (I live near a huge body of water) gushing over a boat that’s currently selling for $1.2 Million. Every time this morning I’ve tuned it on to check the current temp (I’m working from home today), the same reporter is standing on the same deck, saying stupid stuff about the boat. Definitely pandering to the 1%.
