Colbert: Fox News so desperate they’re breaking out their ‘emergency Muslims’

Raw Story

Break out the emergency Muslims

Wednesday night on “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert discussed the sad state of affairs at the Fox News Channel, where, in the wake of the Benghazi non-scandal, no juicy stories have come along to rile up the Fox Nation. The network, said Colbert, is being forced to trot out its “emergency Muslims” just to have something to talk about.

Colbert opened the segment by saying that while he may have spent the first part of the show only talking about himself, “Not all of the news is that hard-hitting. For instance, yesterday, this is the story that everyone was covering…a monkey loose in a fur coat at Ikea.”

“Luckily,” he said, “the folks over at Fox News are never afraid to smash the glass and pull out the emergency Muslims.”

Once again, the Fox News brain trust has seized upon the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” an Islamic community center two blocks away from the site of the former World Trade Center, as a cause for ire. Reportedly the community center has yet to become more than a house of worship.

“It turns out we may have been lied to,” said one Fox anchor in the clip that followed.

“Turns out it’s just an empty space with no community center,” said Gretchen Carlson of “Fox and Friends.” “Dozens of worshippers gather at the site for prayer services,” she continued, “but it’s all pray and no play.”

“All pray and no play,” said another of the network’s talking heads. “You could call this a ‘mosque-rade.’”

“Oh,” said Colbert, “it’s a ‘mosque-rade’ alright. And I’m in no Mahmoud for it. I’ve ji-had it up to here! The media haj to Mecca big deal out of this.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
