There's an underlying foolishness in the whole "controversy" that Stewart brings out and that's the notion that hip hop
lyrics alone are to be taken as literal representations of who the artist is.

No one seriously believed that Johnny Cash advocated killing someone just to watch them die.

None other than Don Imus, certainly no liberal, made the point a long time ago that no one comes up with this manufactured outrage over all the sordid tales portrayed in country music.

But Fox is playing to a demographic that is susceptible to the narrative of young black men presenting an intimidating persona (and Common doesn't necessarily even fit that description)


ozzy osbourne was talking about the whole suicide solution controversy that said he TOLD a listener to kill himself ozzy's take was that it was ridiulous to judge aperson by their lyrics or do things just becuase songs said to do them

I came late to this thread, but I do remember Hannity with his panel of "experts" and he reads part of Common's song that talks of "cop-killing" and is visually upset by it on his show...explaining thsi to his panel. When in fact, Common is speaking out against "killing cops" in his song. But Hannity has done his job. Take something out of context and spin it in your favor. Blast Common, smear the President, etc....everyone is Fox News TV land has heard what they need to hear. The majority will never get the true story.

And by saying such things Obama legitimizes the insanity of the right.

Nice link. Newsbusters? :lol:

Paul Krugman has it right:

Quote:
Think about what’s happening right now. We have a crisis in which the right is making insane demands, while the president and Democrats in Congress are bending over backward to be accommodating — offering plans that are all spending cuts and no taxes, plans that are far to the right of public opinion.

So what do most news reports say? They portray it as a situation in which both sides are equally partisan, equally intransigent — because news reports always do that. And we have influential pundits calling out for a new centrist party, a new centrist president, to get us away from the evils of partisanship.

The reality, of course, is that we already have a centrist president — actually a moderate conservative president. Once again, health reform — his only major change to government — was modeled on Republican plans, indeed plans coming from the Heritage Foundation. And everything else — including the wrongheaded emphasis on austerity in the face of high unemployment — is according to the conservative playbook.

What all this means is that there is no penalty for extremism; no way for most voters, who get their information on the fly rather than doing careful study of the issues, to understand what’s really going on.

Not so shockingly, Stewart found another slight inconsistency in the FNC world view

It seems the news channel that is quick to tar all of Islam with the most heinous acts of some of its misguided members is indignant at the accurate reports that the Norway mass murderer is a self-identified Christian with extreme views, many of which are tied, by his own writings and statements, to his warped view of Christianity.

The reason for the Fox outrage-it's unfair to blame an entire religion for the acts of its most unhinged members.
