Well Fox News is run by Republicans so of course anything a Democrat does Fox News will be there. And who gives a poo if Obama orders a burger with just Mustard... I hope the next time you go down on those cheap hookers Sean Hannity you choke on their pubic hair and die.

Ollie - Don`t get snippy because your conspiracy theory failed. Just accept the fact that you made a poor comparison and got called out on it.

But it`s adorable you think your flaws are a result of our "spinning" your contribution. High five, buddy!

@JJXanadu "Actually, Ollie, the main difference might just be that John Stewart was actually funny..."

Actually, I found them both to be equally unfunny.

@Skibi "Also, Ollie, Jon`s focus was more on the inanity of spending five minutes reporting that the prez went for fast food, and also poking fun at how slowly Obama ordered.

"Dijon was not mentioned once."

Okay, I get it.

Fox: Obama is elitist.
Comedy Central: Obama is retarded.

I guess retarded is funnier than elitist. At least that was the joke when Bush was in office.

@TR-Wolf "OldOllie: One is a comedy show making light of a silly situation, the other is a news channel making an actual news report on it."

You obviously have never watched Fox or you would know that Hannity is not and has never claimed to be a straight news program.

Sorry guys, I`m not buying the spin. But thanks for playing our game.

Just to clear things up... Conservatives are the Democrats, right? And Republicans are the far right, wasn`t it?

But yeah, dijon is really, really fancy. Everyone know`s that although it says Dijon, it`s collected near the Tannhauser Gate with C-beams modified with Flux Capacitators...

didn`t he ask for a spicy mustard first? BTW who the fudge cares what condiment he prefers on his burger? the real question should be "Are we conservatives retaining our dignity or are we being poor sports about our dying ideology?"

I don`t get the problem. American mustard is extremely mild, he just wanted a bit of spice, and asked for Dijon as its generally easier to find in the US than say English, French or German mustards, which are all spicier than American yellow mustard.

But yeah, a NEWS report on the type of relish the president has on his burger? If that`s all they can snipe at him for, he must be doing a pretty good job generally.

"So why are you ripping on Fox and not Comedy Central? I guess that wouldn`t fit the template (Fox = BAD, conservatives = BAD)."

Actually, Ollie, the main difference might just be that John Stewart was actually funny, while Hannity failed miserably at his attempt (if he was trying) to be funny. What that does is make the Daily Show version seem like a lighthearted take on the whole situation, while the Hannity clip feels more like an attempt at a slight on the president himself.

All right. So he was obviously on the plane. Because they tagged it Air Force One. Which you said is what they do when the President is on a plane. And therefore, he was lying when he played ignorant. And therefore, unless he is, in fact, a retard with a handsome young black man costume on, he could have definitely called off the bombing run that HIS plane (that he was apparently definitely ON) made. Could you have made my point any better for me? I should probably thank you, but it seems like you`d take care of that too, so I won`t bother.

MY middle-class father likes dijon mustard, is there a point here? It would have been closer to "elitist" if they said they didn`t have any and he left the store without a burger. Still not newsworthy, but closer to "elitist".

Typical American media. Trying to make someone look bad for personal tastes regarding condiments is not only pathetic, but very disappointing. Either our media is trying to scare us, or filling our brains with rubbish.

I cannot wait until I escape this ignorant, and arrogant nation filled to the brim with idiocy. At least Obama is capable of making intelligent decisions regarding our nation`s course, unlike our previous president.

I like how the title says "Conservatives" when all you see is Sean Hannity. I was expecting a protest in front of the White house or something. I do see his point though. Obama did sell himself as the "everyman", but pointing out the fact he likes Dijon Mustard is kind of stretching it.

Oh and
"Obama just had Air Force 1 buzz New York. And for those of you who believe he didn`t know, AF1 is on 24 hour stand by to the President alone. It goes NOWHERE without his approval, and certainly not without him being notified at all."
Air Force 1 is the call number of the plane the President happens to be on at the time. If he went up in a 2-seater Cessna, that plane would be AF1. The plane itself is a Boeing VC-25, a military version of the 747-200. And the US has 2 of these, not just one. Louis Caldera, director of the White House Military Office, approved the flyover not Obama. I don`t like Obama, but I can`t stand when people make arguments withou

I agree, I`m not a huge fan of Fox, but I hate seeing the other media outlets avoid a large portion of their well-deserved criticism.

I see Fox as the hokiest news provider. They pick up any story with a bit of flash and the try to push it like hell, throwing in a "right" twist. Most of the others have "left" twists, but their reports have more substance, so people accept it because their news is meaningful.

But they got away with plenty of fluff stories on Bush. No one cared though because it just further vilified the "worst man to ever have lived". So Fox becomes the whipping boy, which it does deserve at times, but the others do not have to worry about accountability.

And no one complained when the other big networks would salivate, just waiting for Bush to take one single misstep, and then plaster it in all of their newscasts.

One example was the time he couldn`t open the door after his presser. Is it really newsworthy to show a President a little befuddled after a technical difficulty. I`d make the same remark with all the news going around with Obama and his teleprompter.

So its fine and dandy to lambaste an unpopular President. But if you take a swipe at the Golden Boy, oh noes, you have no credibility. The fact is all the news networks today suck. But inconsistent sentiments are obviously making people reel against Fox. And people say the media is not in control...

"how is Dijon fancy?"

Exactly.

However, 20 years ago (give or take 10 years) there used to be TV commercials in the US for Grey Poupon. You`d see a Rolls Royce pull up next to another Rolls Royce. The men in the back of the car would be eating. One would roll down the window and say "Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon."

It was an advertising campaign to try to make people think they had a superior product and that they were fancy. People joke about it some now but good grief the Grey Poupon is on the shelf right next to the yellow mustard at any grocery store.

Fox just has to try to find any way they can to bash Obama. Morons.
