Fox News Panelist Defends President Obama, Slams Tactics Her Network Often Uses Against Him (Video)

As most of us know, about 95 percent of what keeps Fox News going these days is devoting nearly every show on their network to bashing President Obama. Pretty much no matter what the president says or does, Fox News is often right there to tell conservatives exactly why it’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to the United States.


It’s like I’ve often joked, if President Obama cured cancer, Fox News would say he was “waging a war on oncologists.” If he saved orphans from a burning building, it would be some kind of socialist plot to put fire fighters out of work.

Well, conservative Outnumbered panelist Jedediah Bila did something that you rarely see any conservative do on Fox News – she defended President Obama and called out the tactics often used by practically everyone on the network.

“There are some people in the conservative community who feel that they need to criticize Obama at all times, whether he’s saying something that needs to be criticized or not,” Bila said. “There are people waiting with bated breath on Twitter, and you can just tell they’re waiting to pick on something. Give him a chance to speak! Let’s see what he has to say!”

And she’s absolutely right. Though it’s clear by this interview that she’s still very much in the anti-Obama camp. But that’s how bad Fox News’ anti-Obama propaganda has gotten. Even a mild defense of the president by a conservative on the network is fairly shocking.

She also spoke about the hate mail she received when she dared to praise a speech the president had given. Because, you know, how dare anyone on Fox News say anything positive about Obama!

Considering a huge part of what Fox News does is nitpick at any little thing President Obama says or does, it’s interesting to see a conservative employed by the network specifically criticize these tactics. Because when I say that they nitpick and attack anything the president does, I’m really not exaggerating.

While there’s always going to be some kind of partisan pettiness found on both sides of the political debate, since Obama’s election in 2008, Fox News has taken this to a whole other level. It’s become so bad that nowadays when I’m watching the network I don’t even really get angry. I just sit there amazed, often laughing at the ridiculousness of their reporting. I honestly don’t even consider Fox News an actual “news” channel.


In my opinion, Fox News is nothing more than a conservative entertainment and propaganda network pretending to be a cable news channel.

    The answer is hate. Simple, stupid, mindless hate. The people they are pandering to don’t just dislike or disagree with Obama. They hate him. They hate everything he says and everything he does. There is no room for compromise and you can’t say anything remotely praising him. When you demonize someone this much it makes it much easier for them to believe anything said about them that fits your view no matter how outlandish.

    For example, often you see conservatives who will talk up with glorious years of George W Bush. Many of them don’t like Bush either but they see downing Bush as somehow elevating Obama.

      No, you hear the talking up the Reagan years. Bush and Bush and now Bush are all members of your secret Handshake club; Progressivism.
      (Read that as RINO’s). You do realize that DINO’s do exist too?

    She lost me with “form an educated opinion”. Faux viewers do no have this capability. And to compare the left’s reaction to Bush to the current right’s pummeling of Obama is pure nonsense. Of course, Faux viewers love to eat up that nonsense!

  • Cole

  • bobg

    Fox News is propaganda pure and simple. The Nazis employed the same tactics before WWII.

    • gtrippp

      I hope you are smart enough to know that propaganda is used in almost all politics. In fact, your comment that related Fox to the Nazis was, indeed, propaganda. Dems are experts in that field, altho many like you, don’t even know that they’re using it. They just spread whatever stupid memes they see, blindly believing posts by propaganda sites which include no sources for the lies that they’re spreading.

      • Mike Palacio

        Says the guy with the Washington Redskins profile pic.

      • Gtrippp

        Heck of a reply. Can’t respond to the comment, so deflect to something else. And what’s wrong w/ the Redskins pic? I guess you’re one of the idiots that doesn’t know the true meaning of the name, which is a warrior w/ red war paint on. 3 Native American high schools have the same name, cuz it’s a name to be used w/ pride. Educate yourself, before you make stupid comments.

      • Mike Palacio

        That’s funny! Are you using that for your stand-up gig? Everyone that doesn’t have their head lodged up their ass knows that redskins is a derogatory term used for Native Americans. You telling me to educate myself is pure comedy gold.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      True, They had their version of Rachel Maddow subverting the populous too. The National Socialist Women’s Union and German Women’s Agency used Nazi propaganda to encourage women to focus on their roles as wives and mothers of the Master Race. “Leni” Riefenstahl was the MSNBC Spokeswoman of her day.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      And the Soviets utilized the MSNBC model of accusatorial commentary. Good for you for bringing that up.

  • Hal

    She knows the Fox ship is sinking and is looking for a new gig.

    • Steve Brains

      Fox is strong enough to almost BUY CNN.

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Dude, with your pocket change, you could by CNN.

      • Steve Brains

        Bad investment. Ever since they took up the RED mantle of Obamahate with FOX, they have lost market share because they CAN’T manage the operation of a news organization AND be RNC/KOCHAGANDA shills simultaneously. When the Fox deal fell through as a criminal enterprise… it has been such a pariah that Dish has taken it off the programming here and replaced it with MSNBC lite.

        I bought part interests in many small businesses nationwide. Limited partners were in great demand during 2009 and until The REDS drove the wheels of the OBAMACOVERY in 2010 and the massive racial stagnation and obstructionism in 2011,12 and 13… I was watching about 15 balance sheets a day. I have slowly been selling the businesses back to the owners in increments and as the last year of My plan comes to an end, I wil have but almost HALf the EURO play into a tax deferred kEOGH plan that i will tap in 20 years.

        After it quadruples again @ 7% GUARANTEED interest.

        If I could ONLY compound interest the way you compound STUPIDITY!!! I could BUY the RNC and close it for spite.

  • rossbro

    Fox is the advertising branch of The Republican Party

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      And NBC & CBS are what? Rev. Al Sharpton is impartial? Seriously? If you’re gonna throw stones, throw them in all directions. Even at Mr. Clifton here. What? You thought a Message Board titled ‘Forward Progressives’ was unbiased?

  • TheBipBip

    After watching a few months ago Fox News for 5 minutes, where a panel of “experts” kept convincing themselves that there were not racist for thinking that the Danish Prime minister had a “black thing” fantasy for taking that selfie with Obama. I decided to use the parental control feature of my cable box and Fox News is no longer an option at home. I have always let my children watch opposing views and different sources of information. But Fox News is NOT a source of information. It is a lobotomising machine which is a menace on young minds. It is not about their opinions but about their non-sens ridiculous arguments.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      You actually figured out how to set that up on your TV? Wow, good for you. Most everybody else in your Mickey Mouse Club House leaves
      their Cable Box tuner glued to MSNBC.

      • Nick

        Why do you gotta be a dick?

  • EnoughAlready

    I wonder how they will cope once Obama is out of office at the end of their term. Once he’s out of office, will they just sigh and return to ‘normal’ life, or set their sights on the next President and continue the bashing?

    • Jillz

      I think option number two since it’s gotta be unlikely for a Republican to win the next Presidency. If Hilary wins, I’m especially sure it will be option number two.

    • Sakonya1

      Not unless he’s Black!

  • gtrippp

    Bush was slammed CONSTANTLY, by a media that conveniently forgot that the 2 wars were approved by a Democraric Congress, an international coalition, and the public. He was used as a scapegoat for the wars, and for the housing bubble (that was created by Clinton era lending rules) which burst while he was in office. At least Obama is mostly only criticized for the stuff that he actually does.

    • Jillz

      Maybe my memory is lapsing a little, but didn’t he (Bush) get that approval based on lies about WMD’s?

      • gtrippp

        He got that information from the same military leaders that had advised Clinton. The same ones that had people like Clinton and Kerry preaching about what a major threat Saddam was, and saying that he already had WMD’s, and that was BEFORE Bush was even elected. Go on youtube and watch the speeches that major Dems gave, before Bush was elected, and before the 2nd Iraq war. Hopefully, that will restore your memory,

      • Jillz

        So your position is that Bush gets a free pass b/c he listened to advisors; but Obama is somehow out to destroy the free world when he listens to his [advisors]?

        An example: this latest right-wing lunacy trying to discredit medical professions and the CDC b/c conservatives don’t want to believe the truth they’re being told by PROFESSIONALS about Ebola?

      • G

        Wow, in less than one sentence, you show how uninformed you are. Obama is NOT listening to his military advisers, ALL of which have told him that air strikes alone will not be enough against ISIS, and that we need ground troops. And the CDC has already been proven wrong, about the Ebola situation, and is obviously more worried about preventing panic than they are about preventing it’s spread. I, for one, think the Ebola problem IS being overblown by Fox, but I don’t think it’s getting enough attention from everyone else.

      • Guest

        And the part about Bush lying about the WMD’s?

      • Jillz

        Not uninformed, just sick of hearing Obama getting slammed and nit picked to death from the same people who have done nothing but obstruct everything he’s tried to do for the past six years, and who blatantly lie to do it.

        Bush was a disgrace as a President. When I hear more conservatives agree with that, maybe I will take their criticisms of President Obama with a few more grains of salt.

      • Steve Brains

        To ME, obstructionism by an ELECTED OFFICIAL is TREASON .

      • Jillz

        Sedition, at the very least.

      • Steve Brains

        Do you know what a flail is?

      • Steve Brains

        it’s not inciting others to act, it’s DIRECT action to derail the elected Government.

      • Steve Brains

        But he needs Boehner to DO HIS JOB and put a debate on the issue on the floor. THEN a vote on a BILL specifically authorizing this.

      • JOHN McCARTHY NUDE ARREST

        he wont answer that,,,,,,,,his FOX “news” Benghazi Tshirt is on a wee bit too tight

    • John M

      Are you serious? “Obama is mostly only criticized for the stuff that he actually does”? You mean like Benghazi? 4+ investigations and Zero evidence of wrongdoing by Obama. 2+ IRS investigations that not only found that there was no connection to the White house, but, the IRS was in fact going after liberal groups more often. How about the constant blaming of the economic collapse on Obama, even though it happened before he was President. You’re pretty much guaranteed to find Fox slamming Obama for everything he does. The irony of this is that he’s actually a pretty conservative President. “Obamacare” is probably his key piece of legislation. If you watch Fox (or any other station for that matter) you’d be convinced that it’s some sort of takeover of the healthcare system. When, in reality, it is almost the exact same plan that the Republicans put forth in the mid 90’s and Mitt Romney actually passed in Mass. And the funny part is that all it really is, is a website that gives you access to insurance. Notice all the reports form insurance companies complaining about how they’re losing money because of the socialist Obama? You don’t? Hmmm, Funny how that works.

      • Jillz

        I’ve never quite gotten that either. How can anyone think the ACA is related to anything socialist. It’s a capitalist plan which is bringing more customers to insurance companies.

      • Steve Brains

        It’s a GUARANTEE of profits for the heath management industry, just as Part D was guaranteed profits for Big Pharma.

      • G

        What are you talking about? Of course the insurance companies aren’t losing money! They’re making tons of it! Obamacare was written by an insurance lobbyist! It was never intended to save people money. Insurance RAISES medical costs, cuz people don’t comparison shop for services when they have insurance. It was to give poor people insurance, which could have been done simply by extending Medicare/Caid. And the GOP plan wouldn’t have FORCED people to buy insurance, so that’s a HUGE difference from Obamacare!

      • John M

        Sorry, but that’s exactly what the GOP plan from the 90’s did. And rather than take pride in that. Rather than say “this was our idea!” They try to make it sound like it’s some socialist health care. This would make Obama the worst socialist in the history of socialism.

      • Steve Brains

        NO, the Reagan Health reform was to finish the deal Nixon made with Edward Kaiser in 1971. Were less but perpetual care was mandated and cures were ignored in favor of medication and maintenance. Hence, HMO. health MAINTENANCE organization.

        in 1986, Reagn closed mental hospital creating a new tax class called HOMELESS PEOPLE! almost

      • Steve Brains

        But it DOES!!!! For almost 20 million by Easter.

      • Steve Brains

        7 investigations, the Senate did 3.

        the IRS should investigate the tax status of ALL churches, looking specifically for ANY political activity. Which would disqualify them completely. AND they would have to pay BACK TAXES for every year they were politically active.

        might even eliminate the debt!!

    Is this writer actually criticizing Fox for giving a differing view than the usual Right philosophy? And she’s not facing any discipline for doing it. This writer is a joke, writing lies for a propaganda site, but has the nerve to criticize Fox, and call IT propaganda.

  • FD Brian

    Fox News is the echo chamber for the right, it’s a great place for the right to go and NOT be challenged by their policies (or lack thereof), it makes them feel special when there is somebody else patting them on the back. But the truth is the right and fox news have nothing constructive to offer other than the same old same old and the American people are going to catch on to that.

    • youcantgetridofmethateasy

      And what does that say about MSNBC? The oracle of Truth?

  • Jim Bean

    “Even a mild defense of the president by a conservative on the network is fairly shocking.’ Its shocking only to those who don’t watch but think they know everything that goes on there (which, I suppose, encompasses all Liberals.)

    • Mike Palacio

      Puh-leeze! We all know the redonkulous shit that happens on FOX. It’s full-on Obama Derangement Syndrome. So, don’t even pretend it isn’t. If you wanna circle jerk, head over to The Blaze.

      • Jim Bean

        And what keeps it going? The constant refusal to provide the evidence requested in these scandals for one. The losing of the emails. The destroying of the Blackberry. The redacted documents. The refusals to testify. The defiance of court orders. The refusal to release information. The resignations. The rise of the JV Squad to Superterrorists. The endless promises that turned into lies.

        None of those things are ‘made up’. None of those things are ‘ridiculous.’ None of those things suggest anything but the most lawless administration in history. And while you think it shouldn’t be discussed because he’s your baby, if your baby where white, he’d be long gone. And if the baby were Republican, he’d be long gone. All the other media would have seen to it.

      • Steve Brains

        The Hastert Rule has been the Bulwark of the RED party since the 80’s. It;s how they keep Obama looking bad and America firmly entrenched in a war it can not win, a debt the REDS refuse to pay and a deficit that could easily be balanced with intelligent revenue restructuring, to include an Alternative Minimum Tax for ALL Corporations that qualify for a fine under the original PPACA regs.

        The little guys (you know, the ones Fox kept paying and featuring that really NEVER HAD any PPACA issues) can get off scott free if they can manage it.

        The Oversight Committee is to OVERSEE the HOUSE!!!!

      • Jim Bean

        C’mon man. You get EVERYTHING wrong. You need to confirm things first, and then talk.

        (House Oversight Committee)

        We exist to secure two fundamental principles. First, Americans have a right to know that the money Washington takes from them is well spent. And second, Americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. Our duty on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee is to protect these rights.

        Our solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers, because taxpayers have a right to know what they get from their government. We will work tirelessly, in partnership with citizen-watchdogs, to deliver the facts to the American people and bring genuine reform to the federal bureaucracy.

        This is the mission of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

      • Steve Brains

        Who sold you THAT crap. The oversight Committee has ALWAYS been a Redpublican road show with false witnesses who are NEVER relevant to any issue. It is a publicity stunt put on by a car theiving arsonist insurance scammer.

        Elijah Cummings is a Passenger of the Road Show. You saying he’s doing a poor job in defending your POTlitical position in Congressional Hearings?

      • Steve Brains

        I read their mission statement, but I also SEE what they do on their Witchhunt Roadshows and minimized witness list propaganda MISSIONS. I have seen ISSA fail to follow procedure to protect himself from being PROVEN a LIAR ON THE RECORD!!

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        Like Charlie Rangel? Seriously?

      • Steve Brains

        HE ABSOLUTELY IS!!!! He has CONSTANTLY asked for irrelevant and immaterial data. WHY do you THINK he hasn’t TAKEN THE MATTER TO COURT?

        Because he would have to show CAUSE and he CAN’T!!!! He knows he’d be shut down abd the matter CLOSED.

        THei is RED POLICY 101.

        Ads against Udall not only mis spell his name, but ask “What is Mark Udall hiding.”

        It is on TheForward Progressive page this morning.

        it’s ALL inuendo. Gardner has SEVEN PACS shipping money for ads into Colorado, and they all say, ‘Mark Udall is old time politics, He’s Obama’s buddy, he’s having millions in outside money sent in Colorado to smear his one issue campaign.”

        Which is Total Rove!!! it’s EXACTLY what Gardner is doing!!!!

        But Udall is too stupid to point it out and a egregious as Gardner in the Senate would be, Udall may not deserve to win. Maybe he just doesn’t wan the job anymore. if I had to deal with you on a daily basis, I might take sniper lessons and living the mountains with My money, and guns.

        There SI no evidence because there IS no WRONG doings. Not the First investigation nor the LAS 6 after that.

      • Jim Bean

        Then should have never admitted to wrongdoing in the first place and they should have released the evidence that proved there was no wrong doing.

      • Steve Brains

        Issa asked them to prove a negative. Asked for a picture of the dark without a light.

        hehehe What has Bush done for America besides photo ops on 9/11 and the Mission Accomplished fraud?

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        He advanced Progressivism 10-fold. Bush did a much better job than Obama ever will in suppressing Free Market Economics and Civil Rights. Obama will never reach those lofty heights of Progressivism; that’s why he’s shifted his path towards Socialism. It’s easier and you have a lot of guns on your side to suppress political dissent.

      • Steve Brains

        Collapsing an world economy WILl suppress Free Market GRowth!!

      • youcantgetridofmethateasy

        No kidding? Really? He’s not a bobble-head on Fox? I never knew that. Thanks for setting me straight, Steffy.

  • George A Bradley

    I don’t really understand the point of this article.

    Fox News is a conservative network, run by News Corp which more or less openly endorses and supports the Republican Party. Are we supposed to be outraged that they function as a propaganda platform for the anti-Obama camp? Is this anything new?

    No, it isn’t, and singling out Fox as though they are the primary culprit is pointless and silly. So is expecting them to be balanced in their reporting. We on the left (and I very much am) tend to act like Fox News is some kind of erroneous monster, one which is single-handedly blaspheming against the holy altar of “real news”. In fact, the issue is much more complicated and Fox are anything but unique in that regard.

    There ARE no “real news” channels anymore. All of them are blighted by the same disregard for facts and integrity. Perhaps Fox is the most obnoxious, but that is simply down to one’s point of view. Plenty of Republicans probably felt the same way toward Olbermann, Maher, etc during the last years of the Bush regime as Democrats do now about the way Obama is treated now by Fox. Furthermore, one could absolutely make the case that the vitriol leveled against Bush was absolutely equal to that faced now about Obama. I distinctly remember the jabs at Bush, many justifiable but many not, and at their worst they were undoubtedly loaded with the same level of loathing as what conservatives are flinging now at Obama. It’s a case of “potayto-potarto”, I’m afraid, and there’s nothing particularly special about what Fox is doing other than its the only one that comes from the right.

    “In my opinion, Fox News is nothing more than a conservative entertainment and propaganda network pretending to be a cable news channel.” Well, duh. Actually, that’s about the same with all “news” channels. Fox’s only distinction is that they are conservative. Really, all these channels – CNN, MSNBC, etc – are the same in that regard. Don’t believe it? Watch any one of them for 24 hours straight and time how much of the content is actual news vs opinion. Again, not unique to Fox in the slightest. Aside from the hourly 5-10 minute “reporting” and sporadic “updates” between segments of shows, these channels should really be called “Current Events Analysis Channels”, or something similar…because that’s what they are. And we, as American society, have nobody to blame for that but ourselves, because quite frankly nobody wants 24 hour rolling reports dealing only in fact. What we do want is opinion. Because it’s more interesting, more entertaining. We like to see Bill O’Reilly lose his mind at Geraldo and Glenn Beck being insane. We enjoy it that way. It’s not an accident that probably the blandest, most “news heavy”, least partisan mainstream channel (CNN) has the lowest viewing figures.

    My point is that the digs at Fox News need to stop, or at least move on from the same old tedious “OMG PROPAGANDA!” rants. Propaganda in news media is nothing new. In fact, biased reporting has been the norm for centuries and in many countries – the UK for instance – newspapers, etc are actually pretty open when it comes to endorsing a certain candidate and “picking a side”. Maybe if people stopped relying on news channels to form their every opinion, we’d realize it doesn’t really matter a damn if Fox News hates Obama or not.

    If President Obama casually said that drinking your own piss was not good for you, the pundits at Faux news would jump all over their seats to tell everyone how good drinking your own piss is.
