Fox News disables comments for all YouTube videos about McCain’s death after followers ruthlessly smear him

Published

on

Fox News on Sunday disabled the ability to comment on its YouTube videos about the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

Over the weekend, scores of commenters at the Fox News website were allowed to trash Sen. John McCain. But those attempting to view videos about McCain on YouTube were notified that the network had “disabled” commenting.

“Comments are disabled for this video,” a notice on each video said.

Fox News continued to allow comments on videos about other topics.

Meanwhile, at least one story on FoxNews.com had accepted at least 3,500 comments in about two hours. Many of the comments wished McCain “good riddance” and declared him a traitor.

“I’m sorry, but I can’t celebrate the life of a man who has done so much evil,” one commenter opined. “He is burning in Hell right now, and receiving the due payment for his evil deeds.”

President Donald Trump has signaled that he wants Senate Republicans to turn his impeachment trial around on Democrats by actually making it a trial of the Biden family.

Democrats crippled their own impeachment effort with a rushed timeline: columnist

But Thursday, NBC News analyst Kurt Bardella argued that Democrats may also have caused problems for themselves by making the impeachment process too short and setting arbitrary deadlines.

GOP now stands for ‘Gang of Putin’: Conservative slams Republican ‘affinity’ for Russian president

Published

on

For aging Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers who are old enough to remember the Cold War, the admiration that the alt-right has for Russian President Vladimir Putin — a former KGB agent — is quite ironic. And that irony isn’t lost on conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, who is highly critical of President Donald Trump’s pro-Putin outlook in his December 4 column.

Boot, now 50, was born in Moscow on September 12, 1969 — back when Moscow was still part of the Soviet Union. But he was still a kid when his parents fled the Soviet Union and moved to Los Angeles, where he grew up. The Soviet Union ceased to exist in the early 1990s, and Putin is a right-wing authoritarian — not a communist. Boot, however, emphasizes in his column that Russia is still no friend of the United States.
