I limited it just to the ones who seem particularly hateable, or at least particularly high-profile. Also this is just people with their own shows, so no Coulter, Malkin, etc.

Gonna have to go with Hannity on this one. His only real competitors for sheer volume of awfulness year-after-year are Beck and O'Reilly. Beck's saving grace is his ability to entertain unintentionally; O'Reilly's is his ability to occasionally come off as reasonable.

Doocy (edging out O'Reilly).

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 19 March 2009 05:55 (5 years ago) Permalink

Yeah imo Hannity is the only one who projects pure evil. Beck/O'Reilly are just really stupid people who just happen to have gotten TV shows.

iatee, Thursday, 19 March 2009 05:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

this is real tough

  • glenn beck is basically retarded, gets tons of shit wrong all the time, is smug as a mug even tho he is wrong lots, not really hatable tho
  • neil cavuto got outed a down low racist and on top of it all he's so obviously itching to be a CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE and instead he's kind of just this sniveling guy w/ no real thoughts, i think you could hate this guy on principle but in reality he's harmless
  • steve doocy is hard to hate since 'fox & friends' is a pretty lighthearted show all told, he obv holds some tenants of lockstep conservatism close to his heart but in terms of smugness, outright hatred for others, racism, classism, elitism, etc etc he's soo far down on the fox news totem pole that he's not even rly worth discussing. i'd watch football w/ him at least
  • sean hannity is going to be my vote, mostly because he has absolutely no class or morals at all. he really lowered himself to another level during the election this year and right after w/ ACORN stuff, birth certificate nonsense, muslim bs etc all which he knew was false. on top of it everyone on his show is almost as bad as he is, and really since he so obviously gets off on being a jr limbaugh i think he's the worst on the channel. his misplaced self-satisfaction is only matched by rush
  • mike huckabee, c'moooon this dude oookay once you get past his awful views on lots of things. but he's acceptable to me on one level because his views seem reasoned to me (i know the reasoning comes from the bible but w/e) and not borne out of str8 hatred for other ppl so he's passable as far as fox goes (his show with bill maher was genuinely cool)
  • brian kilmeade is basically juts like doocy, not enough personality or self-confident charisma to ascend to o reilly/hannity heights so instead he's kind of just a bumbling fool at worst and a functioning robot at best. nothing more than meets the eye w/ this dude
  • bill o reilly is a someone whose side i am actually on. i watch dude's show or part of his show every night and like huckabee i think he's wrong 5 million percent of the time but i think he has actually thought about his beliefs, and unlike hannity i don't think he tries to provoke people purposefully for the sake of being a huge asshole, i just think he's a spirited dude. he's respectful of others' views (i.e if hannity had on cam'ron and dame dash it would've been purely to humiliate them whereas o reilly really brought them on in the spirit of 'fruitful discussion' [had a school principle on as well iirc] which is kind of endearing to me) even tho he sometimes doesn't act that way. i turned the corner on him after he spoke about how he gained a lot of respect for obama after he got to talk to him one-on-one, showed me that dude really takes what other people have to say into consideration etc etc
  • geraldo rivera, if it wasn't for hannity id vote for this piece of shit. he's not even fun to make fun of because he's so self-important even tho his career amounts to him being a lapdog. he carries himself in the name of 'reporting' which is just so vile and degrading that i can't really speak about it. my hate for his man and what he does is unspeakable
  • greta is kind of an awful human being but as far as her 'genre' goes she's lapped in hateability by nancy grace about 35 times over
  • chris wallace is a good guy and he's broken rank a few times. he's just as much of a 'newsman' to me as david gregory or anyone else of that ilk, he just happens to lean right. no probs w/ him at all really
my favorite person in the world is shep smith btw. yall see him mock glenn beck for his bullshit histrionic crying? really i love shep's cynicism the most. dude just gets cable news

I agree that O'Reilly's different from these other guys, for better or for worse. I think he takes his position as #1 at Fox seriously, and tries to be the guy who isn't thought of as a kneejerk reactionary. And from a political/ideological perspective, I don't think he is - he's def. conservative, but not far-right. But on a personal level, he is totally a kneejerk reactionary, and in discussions, will look for opportunities to simplify the other person's side so he can make them the bad guy and himself the righteous defender of blah blah blah.

But I do enjoy watching him too; it's very entertaining to see him do all that. And his interview w/ Obama was great, and relatively free of the posturing I was talking about.

here's shep sonning joe the plumber after our plumbing friend said that he'd "go ahead and agree" with the idea that a vote for obama = a vote for the death of israel. this video is amazing cuz you can tell that joe is in some van and he thought he was gonna get a bj interview from fox news and instead shep utterly dismantles him. also i <3 the idea of shep taking it upon himself to ruin joe the plumber, like his detest for the spectacle is so palpable

This is also a good clip of Shep talking with O'Reilly about the Nader and Joe the Plumber interviews. He gives a bit of his philosophy on reporting, journalism, etc and why he went after them. When people tell him Fox is biased, etc he says he asks "have you just been watching that O'Reilly cat?"

yeah also he's been there since the inception of the network, and he's obviously he's seen it move away from his style of journalism and towards the o reilly/hannity style of television so it makes sense that he's protective of the 'old style' and of his reputation personally

I've always liked Shep since Katrina when he was live in New Orleans and went off.

"Soldiers are moving those people from one hot overpass to another. They need water. Somebody get these people some water. What is going on here?" (that's how I remember it)

It was the first sane moment I saw on television that awful couple of days and I've always respected him for breaking character at that moment regardless of who he worked for, and I've enjoyed seeing clips of him over the years even though I won't watch FOX in general.

I voted Chris Wallace as the worst, because like Britney Hume, he pretends to be a journalist. When Clinton ruined him a couple of years ago I thought maybe he had learned his lesson, but he just keeps on. And the smirk suits him less than the other assholes.

james k polk, Thursday, 19 March 2009 07:43 (5 years ago) Permalink

Here's the thing about Sean Hannity: is it not obvious at this point that he, as opposed to the usually singled-out Limbaugh, is the real, perhaps apolitical, entertainer of the Republican talking heads? People calling him the most hateful or right-wing or whatever are only, at best, half-right. From what I've heard about him from a friend who's met him at a party and works in talk radio is that he actually doesn't have a huge axe to grind; it's all for the show. He's maybe the worst if you simply hate ideological actors.

And singling out fox for smugness is silly. If you have a tremendous problem with smug and condescending political hosts surely you also cringe whenever Rachel Maddow puts someone down or when you watch too much of the Daily Show. Fox News is annoying for a couple of reasons but it'd be silly to claim "smug" as one of them and then flip over to watch Keith Olbermann, who is, of course, just an honest journalist with the courage to speak truth to power (or whatever his talking points sound like to you if you believe the message).

Cunga, Thursday, 19 March 2009 08:03 (5 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, when I call them fascists, I'm right but when they call me a communist they are wrong. Fortunately, as long as we both get to say it the truth is exactly in the middle.

I hear the same of Limbaugh. I mean, Limbaugh will tell you that, straight up, and so will O'Reilly. Maybe Olbermann will too, and if he won't he's the biggest prick of the lot of them. But is it noble? Is it even fair? It's a dark alley to go down, but are these hosts on news channels honestly presented as entertainers and not journalists, and how much responsibility lies with the viewer if they swallow their turds of wisdom?

Maybe if Hannity did a little soft shoe at the beginning of each show I wouldn't have a problem with him.

Glen's good for laughs. Brit's slurred speech is fun to imitate. Chris Wallace is a wet noodle most of the time, but occasionally he says something that makes sense. O'Reilly is a trained monkey. The Fox & Friends crew is irritating beyond belief, but ultimately harmless. The rest of the anchors/readers are just cyborgs.

There is nothing remotely redeeming about Hannity.

I can relate to their predicament in that - and I think most people can recall similar stories - there have been times in my life where I'm goofing off through a sort of artificial persona and some people mistake the shtick for my actual personality, and then you feel obligated to not break character and disappoint or lose attention. Eventually, with these people, they got to the point where if they ever just lightened-up they'd lose their audiences. But, of course, they get paid millions to be something they're really not and to rile up resentment and bitterness in a lot of people (and that goes for both sides) and that's where my empathy dips.

To sum it up:

Guy from the Rand Institute: This Van Brunn's culture is a tribe of racist, anti-Jewish, anti-negro, anti-immigrant, everything and therefore he's a phenomenon of the Left because racism is a form of collectivism...there was a deal made by the Nazis and the Communists in the Germany in the 30s where they each agreed [now, bear with me here, this is the clever bit] to define themselves as the opposite of the other, you see the percentage in that...

all his conspiracy talk about obama admin secretly run by ACORN/commmunity organizers, this kind of language, the other day fretting about the fcc diversity chair being out to shut down speech he doesn't like

he actually uses the word racist... but to describe them, and their motives behind the plans that "they" are assembling to silence "us" (i.e. Obama's new FCC chairman and their 'diversity committees' which will mandate changes at Fox in the name of 'equality')

it is not coded at all, it is simply inverted -- pretty much straight up those-racists-are-trying-to-take-me-out-by-calling-me-a-racist. the line 'This doesn't look like the country I grew up in' seemed way louder than the sentence he said before or after it...

this whole 'Speak Without Fear' week and I have lost track of the number of sentences that begin with Beck saying 'I Fear...'. Something like 25-30. He's just so afraid that... something's... going to happen. Not sure at all just what, mind you, but don't say he didn't warn you about it

people are certainly discovering the Black Panther Newsreels on youtube

I watched them all recently on the first disc of this - http://www.amazon.com/What-We-Want-Believe-Panther/dp/B000ILYYPS & they are really something, especially Off The Pig. On youtube, some of the most explosive bits are carved into 45 second sections out of context, and they're stirring stuff up. But man they were so sharp, total leaders talking in razor sharp memes, they need less than 5 seconds to get their points buried in you, things like 'Slavery was mostly about greed, and Racism was the excuse' cut through 40 years of babbling

Glenn Beck warns about the controlling OLIGARHY

the part where he said 'ONE LETTER IS MISSING'. and then paused. and instead of drawing in the C, drew in the Y, I began helplessly laughing so loud at my desk three people came by to see if I was okay

I know that Glenn Beck believes a big chunk of what he's saying but I really wonder if shit like that isn't intentionally funny.

well, far from shaking him when he does that, laughter on that front fuels him and his audience. 'Those ivy-leaguers think our spelling errors are more important than saving our country from the Oligarchy.' And actually I have been spending a lot less time laughing at Beck recently than wondering how in the world he can be countered & exposed.

We need a 2010 remake of 'A Face in the Crowd' so badly

so after posting the Beck clip on Facebook and having Kenan post a link to conservatives making fun of him, my wife made this comment:

Wait. Conservatives don't like boobs? So, it's my rack not my black?
