-Headline of the Day-
"Fox Runs Interference For GOP Obstructionism On 9-11 First Responders Bill."

After Jon Stewart's smackdown of the media over non-coverage of the 9/11 first responders' health bill -- the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 -- all the foxbots are suddenly furious that such a bill would hit a roadblock in the Senate. It's the worst thing ever and the people responsible for holding it up should be ashamed!

So, who are the people holding it up? If you watch Fox News, you have no freakin' idea. According to Media Matters' Eric Boehlert, foxbots are "simply playing dumb, on an epic scale, and forgetting to tell viewers Republicans filibustered the Zadroga bill." Instead, Fox viewers are told that "politicians," "Congress," or "Senators" are holding it up. Which ones? Pffft! Who cares? What's important is that the lame duck session of Congress (i.e., Democrats) aren't getting this thing passed! Outrage! Outrage!!

Why do Democrats hate 9/11 first responders so much? That's what Fox News would like to know. (Media Matters, with plenty of video)

-Thank you Fox News!-
While we're on the subject, here are Republicans thanking Fox News for all their totally unbiased reporting:

Need I remind you that a recent study found that Fox did the worst job of informing viewers? It also found that, the more viewers watched Fox, the dumber they got. Given that, these Republicans are basically thanking Fox News for making viewers stupid enough to vote for them.

Remember, friends don't let friends watch Fox. That is, unless you want stupid friends. (Media Matters, via Reddit)

-Bonus HotD-
"Repent Amarillo Executes Santa to Highlight The Importance of Christmas."

Because, for the religious right, that's what Christmas is really all about -- death to infidels and making children cry. (Right Wing Watch, with video)
