Mike's Blog Round Up
November 12, 2017

Time for hot links and a full mug of coffee, Crooks and Liars! I thank you for letting me be part of your week, and boy-howdy! What a week it was! Today we take a jaundiced peek at Pravda Fox News. Because it has become the state-run media, that's why!

News Corpse hears desperation in Fox News.

TrumpTimeStamp judges Sean Hannity for trying to defend alleged child molester Roy Moore.

Speaking of the middlebrow, Hometown, USA publishes John Cleese's Ode to Hannity. It's a classic.

Bonus Track: Hysterical Raisins makes a campaign ad (and the disclaimer to go along with it); but I don't think we will hear, "And I approve this message" at the end.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).

Can you help us out?
