Prize-Winning Journalist Thomas Ricks Bashes Fox News While ON Fox News! WATCH HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitikPerezTV

If you've ever watched broadcast news through a critical, thoughtful lens then you should know NO news network is perfect, and all have some degree of political and philosophical influence…

But one of the WORST offenders of news manipulation under a political agenda is Fox News, which is why we almost squealed in delight when Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Thomas Ricks called out the network for "operating as the wing of the Republican Party."

Watch a man who has covered the military for YEARS voice his expert opinion on how Fox chooses to report on certain events (above)!

Obviously, right after Mr. Ricks' damning statement, the interview is immediately CUT, ’cause god forbid Fox News lets someone voice an opinion that doesn't coincide with what they want to their viewers to know.

    Why is it not OK for FNC to do this? Other networks do. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CBS, ect.

    Are you joking? CNN is the WORST at skewing all stories to favor the left side. Just because you don't agree with their viewpoints Perez doesn't mean you can't look at both sides. CNN is worse when it comes to how they report their stories.

    Are you kidding me jack-off? Try watching MSNBC for a second without throwing up. That is THE most partisan news organization on the air or in print. Totally in the tank for Obama that they don't even discuss ANY issues that put the man in a bad spotlight — and there are tons of examples where Obama could have been impeached or at minimum would not have gotten the nomination the first time if the media had covered what's really going on.

    Seriously Perez, you are disgustingly liberal and need to try to show the other side, asshole.

    MSNBC is actually the most BALANCED network on cable right now in that its biggest show, "Morning Joe" features REPUBLICAN Joe Scarborough and his round table of several differing viewpoints. I respect Joe and feel he always tells it like it is, despite his political beliefs. He's not afraid to point out "the stupid" as he sees it, despite the party affiliation. No other show (or host) has that type of ownership. The reality is that most of cable "news" is nothing more than ratings rhetoric spouted by talking heads who have no clue what true "journalism" really is. These shows are encouraging the demise of our country because they inspire fear and hatred based on affiliation without the "benefit" of honest facts. So very dangerous! What that guy said about Fox News was spot on and the way they abruptly stopped the interview when it turned on them just proves my point. It was also something a dictator would do. Censorship is bad. Facts are good.

    ALL new stations do this, not just FOX. FOX just stands out because they are like the only station that reports for the right wing…



  10. 10

    BOTH sides are EQUALLY guilty of blatantly obvious propaganda, favoritism, and obvious left or right biased. Just looked at the leftie sites when it comes to guns is enough to make me facepalm.

    The difference with Fox, even though, it shows the right, is that you actually hear the left, like this moron. MSNBC is so far to the left that you don't even hear the other side. They only bring on guests that spew out what the commentators, like Rachel Maddow, say.

    The fact is that misinformation was given by the Obama administration. We were told that this video was the cause. From the very beginning, Obama's people knew it wasn't. So, the media is criticizing people like McCain for wanting to know, Rice, or otherwise, who did this? And, all the sudden, McCain is wrong for demanding an answer? If this were Bush, the media would be storming the White House.

    So, Fox news is fair and balanced?…..no way in hell!….I personally watch each and every network, and no particular network sways me in ant direction. It's all about what you believe in and what's in your heart….thta's what matters.

    Good for him.

    The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won't budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at

    BAHAHHAHHAH He fucking owned them. LOL so much that they just cut out his segment bahahhahahha

    Anyone who is calling Perez a disgusting liberal needs to check themselves. Your just butthurt cause fox news got owned on its own network. The thing that made fox news look so bad is that they cut the segment short and got him off air for not agreeing with them. LMAO. Atleast when I watch the other networks they let both sides argue with each other. On fox news they show like 12 republicans go at one democrat and you say "its balanced" stfu.

    perez never said to vote for Obama, he never swayed who to vote for. He just showed this clip cause its funnier then fuck lol. And also the only things he posts about Obama are good things because this is a gossip site and he is trying to show things like Obama supporting gay rights because anyone who doesn't is a bigot.

    Fox News and talk radio are the only people that are covering the attack on our consulate in benghazi. the amabasssadors naked body was drug through the streets and three Navy Seals fought for 7 hours for their lives, obama ordered the military to step down, no help came for them. it was in the middle of the campaign you know when obama was telling people that 'al queada was OVER. once they were all dead obama went to bed and went campaigning in los vegas and described the attack as bumps in the road. now the woman who was sent out to LIE on 5 sunday shows is being rewarded with sec of state, susan rice should not be confirmed she lied to AMERICA

    FOX is the only pro-conservative view. All the other networks are pro-liberal. In a more perfect world, shouldn't it be 50-50?



  20. 20

    Thomas Ricks is right.

    Re: heather – Heather, you need to get your head out of your ass and get an education. To say Perez didn't try to sway dumb people like yourself is just ridiculous. Fox news is no different than MSNBC in picking sides. That is just a fact. Also, don't try to even act like you know what the word bigot means. Stupid teaching stupid.

    I am so happy to see how most of these comments point out how backwards your thinking is!! You couldn't be more wrong about fox! It is MSNBC and CNN that report a one sided view. You should get your acts straight before posting these totally inaccurate and offensive posts! To be honest I enjoyed reading your daily posts but now I'm totally turned off after reading this. I'm not a follower anymore.

    One of the worst offenders Perez? Really? Why? Because they are right of center and you dont often agree with their opinion shows? Clearly you've never watched the channel as their straight news - from the AM until 5PM has NO BIAS and is more fair and balanced than any other news on cable or network. Why dont you do a little actual research and see if any of the other news networks even allow or encourage interviews with their harshest critics? Besides this guy was 100% off base as he is yet another lefty liar trying to distract and distort and minimize what a horrendous scandal the 9/11 Benghazi attacks and murders were. The Obama State Dept and White House are 100% guilty of a terrible foreign policy that trusted Libyan terrorists to protect Americans in our embassy/consulate instead of our our Marines - just so the LIbyans felt more comfortable– even if it meant our American staff was less safe, of sitting and watching 4 Americans die because Obama didnt want a fire fight screwing with his re election and of covering up their lies with the Sept 16 Susan Rice Show with that bullshit story about spontaneous demonstrations and videos and no mention about pre planned terrorism — the only thing that was actually in the intelligence reports. Once again Perez you firmly prove why you should stick to Hollywood gossip and stay very far away from politics and serious news — its way way above your pay grade.

    Re: amariola – You are absolutely wrong about trying to make an equivalence between MSNBC and Fox News. MSNBC is a far left opinion cable news station 100% of the time. Fox News is a straight news station until 5PM when their opinion shows start. BIG DIFFERENCE.

    Re: venus_oriental – What are you smoking? Morning Joe is only show on that network that even has a psuedo conservative on the show. And Scarborough 99% of the time does not have a conservative viewpoint– he has the conservative viewpoint that liberals want them to have - which is complete bullshit. You are seriously demented to think MSNBC even knows what the words fair and balanced mean.

    Re: Dude – 150 million gun owners, 300 million guns only around 10k gun deaths a year as a result of actual gun crime. Doctors kill 7,000 people a year due to screw ups, DUI related deaths are on par with guns, illegal drug overdoses surpass gun deaths..i could keep going :) If you're leftie news wasn't so biased and didn't report screwed numbers you'd realized its greatly exaggerated.
