O’Keefe not withstanding, A million members of the left must be going Kryten today.

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There is some serious gloating going on

Meanwhile on the left: disbelief and resignation.

I used to get upset about this sort of thing, but now? Pft. Whatever.

Couple this with a new influx of corporate cash into political advertising and… well hey, democracy was nice while it lasted.


Just remember this would not have been possible without the long term cooperation of the MSM. Acorn videos, Van Jones, Tea Parties, “Racism”, Ken Gladney, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings, ¿Quien sabe? and Sarah Palin’s “Acknowledged Grandchild”, all ignored, misrepresented, delayed or otherwise not covered by the MSM…

…and that’s just in the last year!

The difference, how many days did it that the MSM to cover O’Keefe and Acorn, days, even weeks.

How many days did it take Fox to cover the story? On the net same day. On TV? I saw it this morning.

That’s it in a nutshell!

Oh and Fox, don’t get cocky, if you fall into the MSM’s habits you will suffer the same fate and deserve it.

…this time over Obama’s Oslo speech.

The Nobel address was Obama at his worst or near-worst. Let’s count the ways.

He then proceeds to Fisk the speech raising a some valid points. I personally think he is missing the forest for the trees but it is a valid critique.

More interesting that this is the fact that Mr. Frum will find that the media that normally fawns over him lately while trashing Palin will be quoting Palin approvingly today (as Morning Joe already has) and ignoring his take. The results for him are predictable:

Will this be a dawn of awareness concerning the media’s sudden respect for him? I wouldn’t be the farm on it. I think he might be one of the people Mike Gravel is talking about.

Update: Talk about strange bedfellows, Atlas and Bolton are with Frum on this one.

Yes I know that’s twice in 4 days but it is the most accurate description I’ve yet seen.

Seriously you can’t make stuff like this up:

Top Obama donor and fundraiser Jodie Evans met with the Taliban in Afghanistan on a recent trip there, according to a report by Jane Fonda of a discussion she had with Evans last month. The meeting with the Taliban took place just weeks before Evans was videotaped directly handing to President Barack Obama a package of information about her trip to Afghanistan at a high dollar fundraiser in San Francisco.

Let’s quote Fonda directly:

I sat next to Jodie who told me a little about her recent trip to Afghanistan with an American delegation that included a retired colonel, and member the State Department. While there, she met with people ranging from the brother of President Karzai, Afghan members of Parliament, activists, to warlords and members of the Taliban. Jodie is co-founder of the peace organization, Code Pink, and always willing to go to any lengths to try and find out what’s really going on.

Gee meeting with our enemies when we are at war with them. It looks like Jane hasn’t changed all that much in 40 years. I guess this is the new Vietnam after all.

The fact that I am seeing this just before going to a meeting concerning the eleven-eleven campaign breaks the irony meter and turns my stomach. Our failure to arrest Fonda for Treason 40 years ago is still paying dividends.

Just remember Evans is part of the Obama fund raising crew. Would she get away with it under President McCain?

Never forget we did this to ourselves and as always we get the government we deserve.

Update: Just to clarify my eleven-eleven meetings are all with local people about getting involved, they are not “national meetings” after all I’m just an unemployed tech guy.

Update 2: Gateway had this yesterday and I didn’t see it. Apparently neither did the MSM. (shock!)

Update 3: The president now says he’s restored America’s standing, are we standing up or bowing down. Combined with this I’m in danger or a going Kryten moment. Is Legal Insurrection right that this is his “Mission Accomplished” moment?

Update 4: Finally found an embeddable clip:
