‘Check your soul’: Conservative Matt Drudge unloads on Fox News for laughing about the massacre of Jews

Published

on

Conservative media personality Matt Drudge is not the likeliest critic of Fox News. But a segment on Fox this morning was too much even for him.

“A segment on Fox News this morning where hosts laughed and joked their way through a discussion on political impact of terror was bizarre,” he posted to Twitter. “Not even 48 hours since blood flowed at synagogue? Check your soul in the makeup chair!”

Drudge was apparently referring to an Outnumbered segment this morning. He posted a picture of Fox News host Kennedy laughing above a chyron that said, “Questions on how mail bomb scare, synagogue attack could impact midterm voters eight days from now.”

During a segment on Outnumbered, the Fox News hosts discussed how politicians were responding to the Pittsburg shooting and mail bombs targeting prominent liberals.

“Sadly tragedies are not even bringing us together any more,” Kennedy said. “It used to be — unfortunately, it was a unifying factor. We all remember how the country and in places like New York City, how people came together after 9/11. Watching vigils and other parts of the world as they pray for us and pray for our country to heal. It feels like we have really lost that.”

She then pivoted to joking about voting for a third party as her colleagues laughed.

“What I will say is being a member of a third party for a little while,” Kennedy remarked. “Then you will see what it feels like to lose every single election and still walk around with a smile on your face.”

A spokesperson for Fox News responded to Drudge in a statement.

“Kennedy made an unrelated quip at the end of the segment which was focused on unity – there was absolutely no joking or laughing about the events of this weekend and a screen grab of her smiling is hardly indicative of the entire segment. The lower third should not have been up for the duration of this segment as it was not fully reflective of what the panelists were discussing,” the statement said.

Judge blocking release of Jeffrey Epstein records has ties to officials linked to Epstein: report

Published

On Saturday, the Miami Herald reported that a judge who blocked the release of grand jury material in the Jeffrey Epstein child sex abuse case has ties to three officials with a vested interest in the outcome of the lawsuits surrounding the scandal.

"Krista Marx, the Palm Beach chief judge who also heads a panel that polices judicial conduct, has potential conflicts of interest involving three prominent players embroiled in the Epstein sex-trafficking saga: State Attorney Dave Aronberg, who has been sued by the Palm Beach Post to release the grand jury records; Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, whose department’s favored treatment of Epstein while he was in the Palm Beach County jail is part of an ongoing state criminal investigation; and ex-State Attorney Barry Krischer, part of the same investigation in connection with his decision not to prosecute Epstein on child-sex charges," wrote Julie Brown, a reporter who has extensively covered the Epstein case.

Can it happen here? Bill Moyers says it’s happening right before our very eyes

At 98, historian Bernard Weisberger has seen it all. Born in 1922, he grew up watching newsreels of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler as they rose to power in Europe. He vividly remembers Mussolini posturing to crowds from his balcony in Rome, chin outthrust, right arm extended. Nor has he forgotten Der Fuehrer’s raspy voice on radio, interrupted by cheers of “Heil Hitler,” full of menace even without pictures.

Fascist bullies and threats anger Bernie, and when America went to war to confront them, he interrupted his study of history to help make history by joining the army. He yearned to be an aviator but his eyesight was too poor. So he took a special course in Japanese at Columbia University and was sent as a translator to the China-Burma-India theater where Japanese warlords were out to conquer Asia. Bernie remembers them, too.
