Fox News: Ferguson riots result of “racial arsonists” stoking a victim mentality in black America (video)


The recent publication of the Department of Justice report into racism in the Ferguson police force and Fox News’ ridiculously partisan reporting of it reminded me of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s assessment of the Fox take on the riots … Continue reading

Breitbart News: craven political hatchet men…..(corrected) (video)


Readers of this blog in the UK may be familiar with the ideological output of Breitbart News following its British launch in February this year. Presumably to gain traction with the UK’s reactionary right, it was quick to recruit the … Continue reading

The Huffington Post and the US senate’s everyday sexism hypocrisy (video)


It is extraordinary to see the extent of sexism in US in 2014.  It is not only the obvious ‘big’ issues like unequal pay, limited career prospects and curtailed reproductive rights.   There is also the sexism that is present in the media and governing … Continue reading

Joan Rivers: the most disgusting female racist in comedy (video)


I used to like Joan Rivers. Her acerbic ‘tell it like it is’ humour, whilst not hilarious to me, occasionally tickled. Unfortunately she has a habit of publicly expressing racist views about Muslims and now specifically Gazans which if reversed … Continue reading

The facts don’t fit your prejudices? No problem. Be like Fox News and invent your own! (video)

UKIP fruit loops (an occasional series): No.2 David Silvester (video)


UKIP councillor David Silvester recently kicked up a storm by suggesting homosexual marriage is to blame for the recent floods in the UK.  He is obviously a bigoted religious zealot and deserves his place in my fruit loop Hall of … Continue reading

Do whistleblowers risk our security? Jon Gaunt and Christina Patterson don’t know but the BBC wastes our time and licence fee paying them to find out (video)


“Jon Gaunt is a pillock” is an hypothesis that I have been reflecting on for some time.  It first came to mind in 2008 when ‘Gaunty’ (as he likes to refer to himself) in an interview with Redbridge Council‘s Michael Stark branded the … Continue reading
