Hosts Worried Hiring Allen West May Damage Fox News’ Credibility

NEW YORK — Fox News hosts today openly lamented the network’s hiring of one-term Congressman and tea party favorite Allen West to be an on-air contributor, expressing concerns that it endangered the network’s reputation as a source for “fair and balanced” news and information.

“Quite frankly, I don’t see how this does anything but allow people to question our integrity,” said Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. “He’s not a serious journalist. He’s not even a pundit. He wasn’t even a successful congressman. This is a man who said that liberal women ‘have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness … we are not going to have our men become subservient … then the debt will continue to grow … deficits will continue to grow.’ What the Hell does that even mean?”

Fox News host Sean Hannity agreed, saying, “The guy’s a quack. He once called for censoring American news agencies. Maybe if he’d left it at MSNBC and CNN, he’d have a point, but he lumped us in there as well, and that’s just nuts.”

“Here at Fox News, we have a journalistic standard to uphold,” explained former FOX & Friends anchor Gretchen Carlson. “We have to remain impartial so as to remain relevant and trustworthy. West is a total right-wing nut case. Here’s a man who said, ‘I’m very concerned about this very divisive rhetoric the president is using when he continues to talk about ‘equality’ and ‘fairness,’ and this thing that I think is really contrary to the principles that I mentioned, as far as life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.‘ You just can’t spin that as anything other than bat-shit insane.”

Regardless, Fox News President Roger Ailes defended the move. “Allen West is a voice of the people, insofar as the people are a bunch of raving lunatics lost in conspiracies of their own creation. Since that’s a good share of our demographic, I see this as a no-brainer,” he said.

Former Fox host Glenn Beck was saddened at the news of West’s hiring. “Oh, how the mighty have fallen,” he crooned. “To hire a man who, while a sitting congressman, claimed to know that 80 members of the Democratic House Caucus were communists without having the stones to name them represents a new low for my old network. How can anyone take him seriously, with all the conspiracies he spews out and the way almost everything he says is a factual lie? I weep for Fox. I truly do. That man is clinically insane.”

      Fox News is the most credible of them all Donna. You guys don’t like Allen because he’s not your typical follower, but you love obummer.

            If there is a god, Palin will be the GOP nominee and we can watch Hillary mop the floor with that nasty reich wing witch at the debates! By the way, are you still a teenager? To be a Palin fan and use the term “Obummer” in one post? Pathetic.

            No, no, I was laughing at the quote, gasping for air, then continuing to laugh at it. Come on, it’s hysterical 😉 I was certainly not saying Fox news is credible in any way. Because, as we all know, it’s not.

            What is wrong with Palin? You don’t like her because she tells it like it is, and not part of the washington elites. Go back to the northeast you elitist fools. When was the last time you’ve ever been hunting? Prolly never!

      Hey sheenan , not sure how even your pea-brain would call my post off topic, but then again the assumption is 22% of libs can think for themselves. Perhaps your in the 78% ( do the math ) .

      At some point you should either take down the Sharpton poster or surprise him at the studio and propose on air.

      It’s funny, although not in a humorous way, that liberals find value in the “Reverend Al Sharpton” who uses cue cards containing mostly pictures with a few single syllable words intermixed – – – -while someone like the Honorable Allen West is given the “Uncle Tom ” treatment by stunted leftist hobgobblers such as yourself.

      Highlighting your own intellectual deficits is something most intelligent people avoid . . . but clearly liberals in the 78% (say “heenan” here) seem to insist on it.

      Tell me you had help with your post . . . no way would I want to take credit for such a stunted response.

      Like every good liberal you should openly blame someone else while partaking in the name-calling ritual.

      Hey, who helps you find your way home at the end of the day? I bet it is challenging for you

      Here’s to betting you sit alone at lunch . . . or with someone whose IQ is
      < 65 .
