From RICHARD ROEPER at the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES:
After multiple viewings of the now-infamous Fox Business Network’s take on the new “Muppets” movie, I can come to only one conclusion.
Bonkers. They’re bonkers.
In a segment on “Follow the Money,” FBN’s Eric Bolling paired up with Dan Gainor of the right-wing Media Research Center to deliver a report that seemed straight out of “Saturday Night Live.”
“Liberal Hollywood depicting a businessman as evil, that’s not new,” said Bolling. “Dan, let’s point this out, this oil muppet, evil man that he is, is called Tex Richman.”
Gainor: “Yeah, it’s amazing how far the left will go just to stoop, to manipulate your kids, to convince them, to give [them] an anti-corporate message, I mean . . .”
Bolling: “I’ll put it out there. Is liberal Hollywood using class warfare to kind of brainwash our kids?”
Bolling asked that with a straight face. And he wasn’t even wearing a tinfoil hat.

From WASHINGTON WIRE at THE WALL STREET JOURNAL (June 8, 2010):
The Lexington County Republican Party has scheduled a meeting Thursday evening to discuss if, or how, to respond to state Sen. Jake Knotts’s racially derogatory remarks aimed at President Barack Obama and South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley.
“We already got one raghead in the White House. We don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion,” Knotts said on an Internet political talk show last week.
Haley is an Indian-American, and she would be the first non-white to be elected to the state’s governor’s mansion if she wins this fall.
COLUMBIA, SC (WLTX, AP) — Lexington County Senator Jake Knotts has again apologized but refused to resign for calling the Republican gubernatorial front-runner Nikki Haley and President Obama “a raghead.”
“I am not going to resign under any circumstances,” Knotts said told his fellow senators at the State House Tuesday.
Knotts said he has been called names, including redneck, in the past. He said he’s proud to be stereotyped as a redneck, and is honored by the true meaning of redneck — someone who gets sunburned from working long hours outdoors.
“If all of us rednecks left the Republican Party, the party is going to have one hell of a void,” Knott said.

You know Neil Cavuto right? He’s the head of “business news” at the Fox “News” Channel and at the Fox” Business” Network.
Here’s what he had to say about the financial crisis when discussing it with Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA):
Did you warn or express concern about any things that happened? I’m not saying that one or the other is beyond blame, I’m just saying I don’t remember a clarion call that said Fannie and Freddie are a disaster. Loaning to minorities and risky folks is a disaster? Maybe if you said it, enlighten me.
