NEW YORK — “Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy and Elizabeth Hasselbeck criticized Penn State’s agreement to pay 26 victims of former assistant coach and convicted sex offender Jerry Sandusky $59.7 million, calling the settlement “unearned handouts” and “money for nothing.”
“We’re seeing more and more of this victim mentality in America,” said Doocy on the settlement. “60 million dollars for 26 victims of sexual assault comes out to just under 2.3 million per victim. 2.3 million dollars just for being sexually abused? It’s excessive and embarrassing.”
Sandusky, who was convicted in 2012 of molesting dozens of young boys over a 15-year period, worked as an assistant coach for the Penn State football program for over 30 years. The school has been widely criticized for their mishandling of the facts surrounding Sandusky’s crimes.
“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to follow the money on this one, Steve,” Hasselbeck agreed. “Obviously Sandusky’s victims decided to ride the gravy train, courtesy of the media. It’s unbelievable. No victim of sexual assault should receive more than half a million dollars at the absolute most.”
“Can you imagine if the Catholic Church was forced to pay out that amount of money to every kid that was abused under its watch? My God, it would have to declare bankruptcy,” Hasselbeck said. “I’m not one to start blaming victims, but I think it’s clear that these particular ones were part of the infamous 47 percent of American society that’s uninterested in working.”
“The real tragedy here is that now the Penn State football program—a vibrant economic power—is taking even more of a beating. A 73 million dollar fine from the NCAA and the Big Ten, as well as four-year postseason ban wasn’t a big enough penalty? What is our country’s obsession with punishing job creators?” said co-anchor Brian Kilmeade.
“I know some viewers will get mad at me bringing the president into this—and sure, on this particular case it doesn’t appear he was involved—but this entitlement culture, this feeling of being owed something, this obsession with lawsuits and payouts? We can thank the left and their allies for that,” Hasselbeck asserted.
“I’m not saying what happened to the victims here wasn’t terrible, but enough money to stop working for a few years? This simply isn’t right,” Doocy concluded. “Best-case scenario now, these people are going to be looking for some type of government handout for the rest of their lives.”
She shows her ignorance every time she opens her mouth. Always has, always will!
I wonder if Hasselback would take this stance if it were her “precious” children that were molested?
Don’t any of you outraged morons know this is a PARODY news site??? Look at the other headlines. “Israel Only Building Settlement Because of Lumber Liquidators Sale”.
These too making these comments are the most uninformed people on this earth. I am sickened by their behavior and their comments on the subject of abused children. They both have the habit of opening their mouth before they think. Fire them both!!!! They obviously think that their worth is much more than an abused child. Get a clue, nobody thinks they should get the compensation that they are paid for making these kind of remarks. Neither one of them should ever be able to work on an public forum that involves them opening their mouth or stating their opinion. Sick sick sick. They are as bad as the abuser!
Are people really so gullible that they believe everything circulating on the internet? A quick glance at the other articles on this site should quickly reveal that this site is satirical. You can get mad at Fox for all kinds of things, but this isn’t one of them. Chill out.
I would like to tear that up anyway. Now I really do. I feel better now knowing she doesn’t want any money.
Frankly, it would serve her right to have her kids molested.
Completely disgusting and downright negligent. BTW, the Catholic church HAS paid out millions and millions of dollars to victims, and I hope they DO go bankrupt if they continue to knowingly allow Priests with complaints and charges against them to hold title and keep their jobs. Yep, it’s factual, look into it.
I would like to see how she feels after being raped, not saying I want her to get raped, but the Conservative thing is to always discount the need for anything or for compassion right up until it happens to them or their child.
Also too, the right has been the whiniest victimhood class for so long now, it’s like an artform for them.
Lizzy is right where she belongs.
Please, folks! This is a satire site…much like The Onion. Just click on “Show Facts”. The only true facts are statistical facts put out by all news outlets.
If one of those kids was Hasselback’s, she’d be singing a different song. To be abused and then be shut down at every corner when trying to report it; these young people deserve the settlement and with the money set back at Penn State, it isn’t going to hurt them.
Hey folks, it’s satire. Please press the “Show Facts” button at the bottom of this article to see what is true in the story. And then start on your serving of crow.
All I have to say is “You self righteous bitch!!!”
You know, this show has spouted a lot of stupid stuff in its history and Hasslebeck has been equally guilty of massive amounts of stupid but this is beyond the pale. I’d ask Hasslebeck one question…what if this were your son? What if your son had been molested over and over and over in the showers at a prestigeous unversity only to have it covered up and people there to turn a blind eye? Who is this mentally ill woman to even opine about a limit to what people can ask for? And to judge these victims as “unwilling to work”? How grossly sick is that? Wow, probably some of the most vile, judgemental and hateful stuff I’ve heard in a long while. Good Christians that they all whine they are…
That’s like 2.3 million per vicitim. Take our legal fees of about 25-50% and it’s between 1.7 million and 1.1 million per victim. A lot, but considering the shameful acts of cover up by the university… entirely justified.
People don’t take sexual assault against men quite as seriously as they do women. Sexist pigs.
I wonder if Steve Doocy and Elizabeth Hasselbeck make over a million in a year… and if so, would they prefer to be molested to “earn it”? Tossers.
“gravy train” what a fucking idiot.. what they said is absolutely disgusting… what if it were their children who were repeatedly sexually abused…..
It’s satire, guys.
Wow. Just…wow. How out of touch do you have to be to think like that. That has to be some kind of diagnosable neurosis….if not borderline personality disorder….
I am so flabbergasted at the FILTH they just spewed out…I am rendered speechless!
What the hell in wrong with our values? Set aside a moment the stupid coming from Fox,the victims received 59.7 million and Fox says they are receiving “unearned handout”, OK,what else can you expect from Fox,but the NCAA is receiving 73 million for upsetting their program I guess and not a word from anyone about the hypocrisy of that.
“No victim of sexual assault should receive more than half a million dollars at the absolute most.”
SO Hasselbecks price is a half a mil? So if I gave her a half mil I could bang her?
Who are they to decide what a fair settlement is for being raped as a child. He did this dozens of times and there is no way the school did not know.
Do ANY of you have any idea what it feels like to be raped? I’m guessing not, because if you did, there is no way any of you could make such horribly insensitive comments. Shame in all of you. 2.3 mill is just a drop in the bucket and cannot even begin to pay for the wrongs that were perpetrated against these young boys.
Would you feel differently if the victims had been young girls?
Your comments were both insensitive and unkind. This has nothing to do with feeling entitled or not wanting to work for a few years. Even if it was, don’t you think these men deserve some rest? Some peace? That evil man stole all of their peace. He wanted what he wanted and didn’t care who he hurt and what’s more, the school and other members if the coaching staff KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON! Shame shame shame!!! And SHAME on ALL of you hateful judgmental excuses for human beings.
I hope none of your children is assaulted, Elizabeth Hasselbeck. I hope you never get the call from the ER that your daughter has been assaulted and raped. Or your son gets molested by a pervert. I hope you get fired and I hope they sue you for defamation of character.
Fox news are the most prejudice and racist people on tv! I can’t say what I really want because it wouldn’t be lady like! They are disgusting!!!
Until you have been raped, sodomized, forced to perform unspeakable acts against your will. Shut the [email protected]$ up!!! The scars that’s left after this abuse is more than you could ever deal with. Don’t comment on things that you know nothing about. Educate yourself, because you sound stupid other than being idiotic.
This is a joke – this did not happen – it’s pure troll bait. Look at the other articles and think about them for a sec.
Please remember this. The only journalistic credentials this woman has, is being the vapid, intellectually bankrupt, blond girl from season two of Survivor. No wonder she landed at Fox!
So I take it that the people insulting the intelligence of Mrs. Hasselbeck failed to notice the other articles on this website which include “White House Promises to Resurrect Citizens Who Die Waiting for Obamacare Website” and “Drone Delivers Healthcare to Yemen Terrorists in Latest Obamacare Gaffe.” Hint – it’s not a real news site.
They should be fired for such statements.. “Just for being Sexually abused!!”
Think these shallow biggots would be singing a different tune if one of their children were raped and molested
Fox does this in order to control the conversation. Fox drones will be repeating the same thing, and how ridiculous is it to argue with a person who says that 2.3 million dollars is too much to pay someone for being sexually molested. that is probably what the kids were thinking when they were getting molested, CACHING. Go home fox, you’re drunk…
I am so tired of the high and mighty Hasselbeck…she’s a great example of what not to say, she’s definitely not a worthy reporter they just hired her for the controversy surrounding the things she says !! She spouts off the dumbest shit… No amount of money is too much for the pain those people went through ! Does she know for a fact the kind of struggle a rape victim or a victim of sexual abuse goes through ? What if it was ger family members? Would she still say the same insensitive shit ? Self righteous bitch…
Hmmm…what would be an appropriate amount if her kids were sodomized….??? She should burn in hell for her comment. Fox fire that loser!
Just no respect for you! As a woman and mother it’s disgraceful and you make me sick Hasselbeck! I can believe you get paid for this!
folks, just to be sure you know, newslo is satire. now, http://facebook.comAmerican Family Happily Institute – that’s another matter
That Elizabeth Hassleass doesn’t even know how to look real, let alone be real. Fake hair..check. Fake tan..check. Botox..check. Fillers..check. High maintenance cunt..check.
She is such an idiot and so is FOX news. Never watch it for their unbeliveable way of thinking and talking about other people. Neve watched the View because of her. She and Ann Coulter would make a good couple.
I wonder if she would have the same attitude if she was abused, Or raped as a child. She should be fired and never allowed to speak professionally again.
They make more money in one short year sprouting their self righteous reiterate than these victims will ever see.
You dont have to be a rocket scientist to realize fox news is not news…
These fucks should be exterminated.
Wow! Never have I ever thought someone could be that stupid!
It’s way beyond time to lose these assholes and the Faux News ass they rode in on.
….and what exactly did you expect from Fox????
here here for a bankrupted vatican
Damnit Newslo, you got me again.
Ok… well you have to remember that Newslo is a “hybrid” news outlet that has real article that are just too good on their own to be satirized, and then there are the stories that are satire. As I have been unable to find ANY other reference to this story other than a few blogs that more or less cut and paste this story. Since the article doesn’t state the date this alleged comment was made and taking into consideration that I can’t find any other legitimate source for this, I think this falls into the “satire” portion. But it’s ok… it’s definitely something Steve Douchey and his cheap plastic blowup doll companion, Elizabeth Hasselbeck would say, and they say enough stupid things and tell such absurd lies that they both deserve a daily spanking on their webpages.
Wonder how they would feel if it was them sexually abused. Being molested, sexually abused fucks up the mind of the victim. Hasselbeck and Doocey better hope they are NEVER molested/sexually abused. Bet they would feel entitled if their kids were sexually used, abused, and refused. Hasselbec and Doocey think they are above everyone else. They both need a major kick in the ass and a big punch in the nose and mouth.
ATTENTION MY IDIOT SHEEPLE……THIS IS A SATIRICAL PIECE…(for those sheeple still flabbergasted by the articles content)
What is SATIRE ? =
noun: satire = 1.
the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
Elizabeth Hasselbeck is an idiot. She has always been an idiot. Talk about entitlements dear Elizabeth, you were a notbody when you were lucky enough to be on survivor. You managed to look cute enough to get Barbara Walters attention. Get off your self righteous box lady and put yourself in their place. That kind of abuse can effect someone all their life.
and Steve Doocy, you are nothing but a doofus!
Hasselbeck said. “I’m not one to start blaming victims, but I think it’s clear that these particular ones were part of the infamous 47 percent of American society that’s uninterested in working.”
does she even know what’s saying?
The trio of Fox News to make these comments is irresponsible an just plain stupid. They have no idea what the victims endured physically, emotionally, and mentally.
I am truly embarrassed by the thought I just had when I read that second paragraph. Their hate is poisonous.
I wonder how she would feel if her children were molested?
I hope t
I wish Whoopi had kicked Hassellbeck’s ass before she left the View ! Hell, she still might do it !
JUST ENOUGH NEWS…Newslo is the first hybrid News/Satire platform on the web. Readers come to us for a unique brand of entertainment and information that is enhanced by features like our fact-button, which allows readers to find what is fact and what is satire.
The best part of this will be the comments. That woman shouldn’t speak in public. It’s embarrassing as a woman!
It’s sad how many people just assume this is a real story. The dark side of the internet.
Newslo, you guys may want to be a little more sensitive to the stories you “joke” about. Children being sexually abused is a sensitive subject matter and look at the comments below, on the story and on her fb page, people are taking it seriously. Yes that happens with other articles, but this is when where someone might overreact and make a death threat against her or make an attempt at her life. In the future use a little bit better judgement and see what’s in poor taste like this.
Fox has achieved the level of comic parody. I read to the end of the article and was still asking myself if this was an Onion piece or Fox parody. My God, Fox is defending the economic rights and prerogatives of pedophiles and pedophile-protectors against the interests of their victims.
I really am at a loss for words reading that. She said she doesn’t want to blame the victims, then says I guess they are apart of the 47% who don’t want to work. That is very demeaning and she is doing exactly that blaming the victims for seeking damage and forcing the college to own up to its mistakes and cover ups of defending the Child molester. I’m sure, but I think the 2.3 million for each victim, is not enough. You have victims that can have PTSD which can last a lifetime, other emotional problems, lack of trust among other things. Maybe Fox and Friends should Volunteer at a Shelter, or hotlines where people call in for help, do something positive instead of blaming people who have been victimized, repeatedly.
Of course this is not true. Find the video.
Wow way to crucify these people without paying attention to the fact that it’s fake. Sad!
Please, Please!!! Self- righteous bitch is not fitting….think of something much worse!!!! 2 million plus is not enough to live the rest of your life with what was done to those men as children!!! But, what kind of thinking does one expect from “Spawn of the Klan”!!
Does Fox’s commentators have no shame?
FAKE! FAKE! Fake!
Let’s destroy the life of Elizabeth’s little sons and see how much she thinks it’s worth for them to live a life of pain, shame and mistrust.
If Elizabeth Hasselbeck was sexually abused as a child, do we think she could be earning so much money babbling on an entertainment show as she does? Or might she have suffered the deep psychological problems that happen to many victims of abuse and consequently be working a minimum wage position?
Considering all the cover-up, the school is getting off light. I wish the victims could sue Penn State into oblivion. The school essentially traded the innocence of those children for a game.
How do you put a number on a traumatic life event that could cause subconscious wounds? You say they have a victim’s mentality, but the fact of the matter is that these people are victims of rape. This is very insensitive statement to make and I think they should apologize for it.
Bet if any of them had been victims of sexual assault, they’d think differently. And blaming the President for this? Wow. She clearly has no idea that this has been a problem for decades.
Tell me, Fox, what’s the going rate for a life ruined? The fact that this is even being discusses is proof positive of the lows to which your network will stoop to stoke firew of ignorance raging through your low information audience.
Hey morons…this site is satire. You really think a website with an article titled “The whitehouse promises to resurrect citizens who die while waiting on the Obamacare website is legit???”
You’ve got to punish where it’s going to hurt the most….the pocket book. That FA UX news crew is oblivious, making and expecting far too much compensation for what they do. Talk about entitlement!
I got fooled again, this is a fake story, satire they call it. I call it irresponsible. The thing is, this sounded exactly like what would come out of this fool’s mouth, so I fell for it and so did others, I see.
This is a parody. Never happened. You people are incredibly ignorant to believe this story.
Too bad Ariel Casto is dead. If he were still alive I’d move to hand this stupid bitch over to him for 11 years just to see how much she believes in that $500,000 limit.
Are you guys kidding me!!!? THIS is a humor site, satire, NOT Factual. For Heavens sake click the “SHOW FACTS” button to see what IS factual about the article.
STOP YELLING AT MY FRIEND
As a survivor of childhood sexual assault, I would like to invite Ms. Hassleback down here to my house.
I have a Louisville Slugger with her name on it.
When we define human beings in purely materialistic, economic terms … then we get this.
It’s satire guys. But considering the crap Hasselbeck normally spews, it’s easy to see how one could assume it was the truth.
You have to be kidding can not believe this. Too bad Joy wasn’t there
This is priceless and these comments are brilliant.
Its not a real story… you sheep are why the people in office now got elected… smh
This is obviously a joke…even Hasselbeck is not this stupid…
Pedophile rapist defenders?
i can’t find this anywhere.
is this real?
So exactly what is the going rate for rape?
Fuck these people, they are self righteous asses.
A lot of you are making some pretty angry, petty remarks about something that isn’t even true. The article is a satire, not factual and meant to rile up folks who don’t realize it never happened. It’s humor. Read the other items around it. It’s a FAKE story.
I couldn’t stand hasselass when she was spouting her stupidity on The View and only NOW occasionally tune in but with this forum she has now I have 2 words-Taser and muzzle
Elizabeth you are the one who is entitled. I don’t know a day you really worked given a silver spoon the day you were born your claim to fame The show survivor. that is it what have you truly added to society …so many more people in this world do so much they are the unsung hero’s you know nothing of the heart in giving or helping I am floored every time you open your mouth. I cant believe you even have an education. entitled they got raped fox news you suck.
What an ignorant and sick comment. Obviously has no empathy for children that are raped, and how it affects our life and future. She would have a different opinion, if she was raped as a child. Thank God I don’t watch this show.
I am totally amazed at Fox….that they can become bigger douche bags than they already are….I bet Elizabeth and Steve (not sure he might enjoy it) they’d be singing a different tune…I know they are out to get folks ire up….but these two deserve the Golden Douch Bag award…
This is what the radical right does to a culture.We used to call it ‘conquer and divide’…now it’s just seduce and destroy for some right-wing campaign of hate and intolerance!
This is outrageous! No one can be this callous and cold. I feel that the victims are worth more than a couple million! If these comments are true then the these talk show host should be fired! God bless theses victims!!!!
how much does 10 yrs (or more) of therapy cost, even under Obama care? Yet if someone gets hurt when the coke machine their are trying to break into falls on them the culture is to litigate….(shakes head) makes no sense
This is a satire site, like The Onion.
You really gotta watch it when satirizing Republicans though… it’s too easy to make it sound real at this point. Which oughta be the number one sign that the GOP has gone WAY wrong.
Reading most of these comments I understand why the human race is doomed. But, hey, if its on the internet, it must be true. Now I just need to figure out how to stop the NSA from conducting toilet-cam surveillance in my bathroom.
Fuck Elizabeth Hasselbeck!! Let that cunt get molested, then see how much she thinks she deserves. Damn right wing slut. She always showed how ignorant she was on The View, now she’s doing it on Fox and Friends!
How much does Hasselbeck get for setting on TV spewing such absurdities? I am sure that she believes she worth every dime, and clearly believes that those “victim mentality” children are not worth a damn or a dime.
Really this is disgusting journalism..
Have they ever been victims or someone in their family. ….shame on you!!!!
newslo get your shit together for mobile. too many people can’t see the facts hide facts buttons and these comments are getting lame.
This is disgusting to make a joke out of this story. Newslo should pull this down and apologize. Rape is not a joking matter.
Awwww Jenny McCarthy a breath of fresh air and wit! Elizabeth Hasselbeck-WHO? WHO IS THAT?
WOW, Just…. WOW, if this is real, I am just speechless.
Where is the video of this?
Now maybe people will understand why this station should be shut down shame on you……k
Steve Douchey and Elizabeth halfwit. Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber.
You people and your rage panties. Newslo is satirical, herpderpderp.
It’s fake people! IT’S FAKE!!
Reprehensible beyond words.
They should be ashamed of themselves. So disturbing!!!
It may be fake, but their attitude isn’t.
Steve Douchey and Elizabet
Child molesters stick together.
