7:11 am
39% and was embracing, you know, 9/11, you know conspiracies? >> yep. >> the press has their thumb on the scale. they want to keep this close. i understand where the republicans are doing it but the main stream press is absolutely committed to this it's a horse race, he might lose. >> yep. and i love when you quote fox news personalities directly which refuted roger ail's contention that they are really a news group. brighton killimmediate asked where obama is so determined to bring us down. >> right. and this came because roger ailes was out on the campus lecture tour. for some reason universities bring him in as a leading figure
7:12 am
in american journalism, and let him give these talks about journalism. i don't know why. but ailes claimed that they only have one conservative host on fox news. >> sure. sure. >> but that they employee 24 liberal contributors. >> he. >> anyone who thinks fox news leans right, they had it backwards. they are leaning a little bit to the left at this point. >> huh? all right. let's dig in to the right-wing world. here is on the five. >> here is the thing that irks me, and i don't know the word irk often, but president obama is only cutting spending in an area that gave him his one and only victory. it's like he is cutting the one
7:13 am
employ that saved his butt. >> that was that deep incite from the performer failed lad-mad editor. but right, so obama has only cut the military, right. why don't we talk about the tens of thousands of government workers who no longer work for the government since obama came in. a lot of people have talked about the stimulus and the economy, the obama administration drastically cut back the number of people who worked for the federal government. this idea that he is only cutting the military is a joke as also. >> tucker carlson in for hannity yesterday. >> what is it about this president that so commanded the slavish dog-like loyalty of your
7:14 am
average working journalist. >> wow. wow. >> and not to -- you know, put tucker carlson on the couch or anything, but if bill maher asked over the weekend what exactly has obama done that has driven these people insane? what are these policies that fox news has to devote every day of its life for the last three years to calling obama a monster? that to me is a far more interesting psychological question. >> and as you just pointed out and point out so well on a weekly basis. the slavish dog like media is to a story, and many times it's against -- >> yes. >> there is way more negative coverage of obama than any of the republican candidates. >> yeah, the pew has been doing the study week by week.
7:15 am
obama has not had a positive week of news coverage in more than a year. so romney's news coverage doubles obama and did so throughout the winter. >> yeah. >> but that study cannot be discussed on fox news. and anyone who mentioned, it for they will be fired. >> i remember when osama bin laden was killed the coverage was, well, george bush finally achieved his -- what? >> we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> there is a tea party in her pants and you are invited. call now. 1-800-steph-1-2. ♪

>> rush limbaugh. >> i have noted before that undoubtedly the two worst scourges of modern history have been the scourges of communism and naziism. naughtyism was an attempt to whip up a war between the races. we have a president who is promoting class war fair he does not mind at all this war between the racists. >> he is both a communist and a nazi. >> not to trivialize the death of so many jews. >> right. >> that goes back to the question what exactly has obama

done that drives his people insane. >> he is black and successful. >> they reach for the nazi rhetoric before obama had even filled out his cabinet. this has just been relentless and they can't point to anything -- just like they freaked out over centrist bill clinton. what did he do policy wise that drove him insane. >> he has sex. >> and when you hear limbaugh talk about communism and nazis it's insane. >> all right. >> it is time for the summer driving season that is almost year. down $0.20 since april. and they could drop another $0.13 by mid-june. those falling prices could be
7:23 am
the sign of a falling economy. >> oh, wow. when they were going up, it was obama's fault. i see. >> this is one of the worst u-turns in fox news history. you know and it was -- he could not be reelected with these gas prices and obama himself was personally setting the gas prices. >> yep. >> he was waking up in the west wing and picking a random number. he controlled the global marketplace in terms of crude oil, and obviously now it's falling gas prices are bad news for the american consumer because it all means the
7:24 am
apocalypse is coming. now they just sit there and watch bill say it's bad news that prices are falling. i'm so curious what goes on inside of the brain of though fox news viewer. how do they rationalize that they are pushing the exact opposite attack 90 days later. >> i don't think the words matter. it's just obama bad, obama bad, obama bad. [ eerie music ] >> yeah, exactly. >> and here is neil. >> the problem is kind of the -- hogs get slaughtered kind of concept. when it got too greedy and they are making more than the people who actually pay their salaries the taxpayers people don't want to support that for very long and now they are seeing it. if they can't pay for protesters
7:25 am
or buses, and they can't show up and put on a t-shirt, well you know, the real support just isn't there. >> wow, first of all union members are taxpayers. >> that's right. they are also americans although if you watch fox news you wouldn't see that. but this is one of the reasons where the right-wing media was so opposed to the bailout and they are so upset that it worked. the unions failed and took down gm and chrysler and now they are rebounded, a, with the help of the government and b, with the help of the unions. so the whole success of the detroit bailout drives them to distraction, because there was going to be their centerpiece of how the unions have destroyed

7:29 am
i have the most common type of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa, there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding
7:30 am
and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines you take any planned medical or dental procedures and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa.
