Fraudulent Connection between Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, FOX News, the Tea Party

Why is the American Media concentrating on Murdoch's scandal in Briton? Why is it failing to see the connection between Murdoch, Roger Ailes and FOX News, the Tea Party, and the 2010 election?

There are rumors that Ailes may be the next Murdoch employee to undergo a government investigation due to his dealings with Judith Regan and Bernard Kerik.

Rupert Murdoch has used FOX News to defeat the Democratic Party and promote the Republican party's power. Murdoch's FOX News operator is Roger Ailes. Together, they created the Tea Party, financed and produce it's political activities, and promoted it as a political party on FOX News. They raise millions of dollars to finance the Tea Party's election contests lies to wound the Democratic Party.

FOX News cable outlet operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party and is clearly biased.

Murdoch's number one concern is that Fox is very successful.

Roger Ailes. Head Of Fox News

Roger Ailes has been masking right-wing propaganda as “Fair and Balanced” news since before Fox News was thought of. Ailes began as a media consultant for Richard “Tricky Dick” Nixon and has been manipulating the media for right-wing causes ever since.

After Obama was elected, Ailes would continue these attacks against Obama and his associates, making big issues out of ACORN, the New Black Panther Party and Van Jones. Under his guidance, Fox News propelled the anti-Obama Tea Party to a serious national movement.

One of Ailes suggestions for the Nixon campaign was to plant a racist at a townhall to ask Nixon about the n-word.

To balance an obligatory “Negro” on a panel in Philadelphia, Ailes dreamed of adding a “good, mean Wallacite cab driver.”

“Wouldn’t that be great? Some guy to sit there and say, ‘Awright, Mac, what about these ni**ers?’”

Ailes was responsible for the infamous Wille Horton anti-Dukakis ads while working for George Bush Sr., which pundits said used race-bating and fear to garner support for Bush. Of the ad, Ailes said:

“The only question is whether we depict Willie Horton with a knife in his hand or without it.”

Ailes would go on to produce right-wing bigot, Rush Limbaugh’s, short lived syndicated TV show in the nineties.

In 1996, Ailes founded Fox News with Rupert Murdoch. Ailes would incorporate talking points from Fox News directly from the Bush White House, and Fox News would defend and support Bush’s choice to go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the 2008 election, Ailes started his attack on candidate Barack Obama by jokingly mistaking him for Osama Bin Laden. His army of Fox News commentators and hosts would demonize Obama as Muslim, a socialist, and a militant African. Ailes would use the same race-baiting scare tactics he did with Willie Horton to turn Reverend Wright, and Michelle Obama’s alleged “Whitey Tape” into scandals.

Since the election, Ailes has continued his attacks on Obama. Scaring his white, uneducated demographic with made up scandals about ACORN, the New Black Panther Party, and rapper Common. Ailes has been a champion for the anti-Obama Tea Party movements and the ridiculous birther movement.

Commentary: Fox News is MIA on Murdoch scandal
By Leonard Pitts Jr. | The Miami Herald

A few words on what Fox News is.

The question has, of course, been debated forever. Fox says it is, as the name would suggest, a news network. Its critics say it is actually the propaganda arm of the Republican Party and that its highest loyalty is not to accuracy, fairness or other journalistic values but to the furtherance of the Party line. Not that any sentient life form should need the help, but events have recently arranged themselves such as to make painfully obvious which view is truth and which is tripe.

As it happens, one of the biggest news stories of the last few weeks has been the phone hacking scandal that now ensnares media baron Rupert Murdoch. For those who somehow missed it, it involves revelations that reporters at Murdoch's News of the World British tabloid routinely paid police sources for information and hacked into people’s cell phones, including that of a murdered 13-year-old girl.

That’s led to the shutdown of the 168-year-old newspaper, a spate of resignations and arrests, hearings in Parliament, rumored hearings in Congress and criminal investigations here and in the UK. This story is a gift from the news gods and any news organization worthy of the name would jump on it like a trampoline. Most have. Fox has not.

The Pew Research Center’s Project For Excellence in Journalism just surveyed reportage of the story in two time frames: July 6-8 and 11-15. In that period, according to Pew, CNN devoted almost 170 minutes to the story, MSNBC about 145. Fox? About 30. That bears repeating: one of the biggest stories of the summer gets, over the course of six days, a half hour of attention from Fox “News.”

Now, let us be fair and balanced here. Fox is owned by Murdoch and the last thing any news organization wants is to be in the awkward position of reporting on itself. To have to air that which might embarrass or damage colleagues or bosses is the definition of a no-win situation, especially since there will always be doubts, from within and without, about your ability to do so fairly. But when professionalism demands, this is what you do.

When CBS News’ report on President Bush’s service in the Texas Air National Guard turned out not to be credible, CBS reported it.

When Jayson Blair hoodwinked and humiliated the New York Times, the New York Times reported it.

When NPR was mortified by a deceptively-edited hidden camera sting, NPR reported it.

Fox’s failure to report —and allow viewers to decide — speaks volumes and offers definitive answer to the question of what Fox is.

It is the nation’s leading manufacturer of false outrage and fake fury — War on Christmas! War on Christmas! — top supplier of bogeymen for those who need to feel terrorized in order to feel alive.

It is America’s number one distributor of misinformation — Hide Nana! The death panels are coming! — a warehouse of conspiracy theories, junk history and dubious “facts” given credit by virtually no one who does not watch Fox.

It is a noise maker, a box of cacophony from which reason will seldom emerge unscathed.

And it is a bovine excreta machine.

But a news organization? No. That is a designation you have to earn.

Step one: Report the news.
