Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The sallow faces of Karl Rove and Dick Morris appeared constantly on Fox News during the 2012 campaign. But since Karl Rove showed up on the channel to give his explanation of why Mitt Romney lost, he’s basically disappeared. The world’s worst political pundit, Dick Morris — whose impeccable record of being wrong was well established before 2012 — is also persona non grata on the GOP’s Pravda.

This isn’t an accident, but a directive from the top, according to New York Magazine‘s Gabriel Sherman.

Why? It could be shame, but it’s more likely that Fox News’ chief Roger Ailes is protecting the little credibility that remains at the nation’s most popular news channel. Months of convincing Republicans that Mitt Romney was going to win has been followed by the now infamous treatment of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tom Ricks after his on-air critique of Fox, and a bombshell story from Bob Woodward that Ailes asked General David Petraeus to run for president as a Republican.

The Media Matters clip above shows that in a YouTube world, there is some accountability attached to constantly misinforming viewers. Unfortunately, Rove and Morris are just two of the worst culprits. Turn on Fox News right now and you’ll see why the channel’s viewers are nearly as uninformed as its hosts.

  1. Wow. Karl and Dick both gone from the airwaves. Dick Armey resigned from the organization he pretty much started. Could this be the end of Rove’s 1000 year Reich?

  2. billbear1961 says:

    Well, it CERTAINLY cannot be because they are crooked FOOLS.

    Jesus, if THAT were the criterion, the pool of contributors to FOX would be BONE-DRY.

    Filthy, outrageous, democracy-hating, 24-hour-a-day PROPAGANDISTS!

    Where in CHRIST’S NAME is the FCC??

    Does it do ANYTHING, anymore, except protect Aunt Mildred from NAUGHTY WORDS??

  3. nobsartist says:

    You must be concerned if you are a “news” network and your biggest competition is comedy central.

    • billbear1961 says:

      Unfortunately, if Americans want news and thoughtful analysis, they have little choice EXCEPT to turn to Comedy Central!

      Thank GOD for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert!

      With their comedy routines, they make it clear that the GOP and their supporters are no longer a decent, respectable alternative to ANYTHING.

      • Landsende says:

        Billbear
        So true. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert point out the lies and hypocrisy of Faux News, Rush Limpdick, Beck, Coulter and all the other hate mongers on the right by using humor. They make it so easy to make them look foolish.

      • Michael Kollmorgen says:

        Actually, I prefer foreign news sources. BBC, Alzeria are both good sources.

        There are a lot of other good news sources too on Short Wave. Heck, even Radio Havanna Cuba has some value.

        It’s a shame though ya got to listen to a foreign news source to get the real scoop on our Politics.

        • billbear1961 says:

          I’ve lived with my partner—now my husband—in Canada since 1987, and we both prefer the CBC, especially Radio-Canada (the French-language CBC), to anything in the States, even for news about the U.S.

          But when we turn to U.S. sources, aside from the NY Times, we trust Stewart and Colbert.

          We trust them to expose and skewer the unbelievably mad, bigoted and corrupt LIARS on the American right.

          It was a sad day when the Fairness Doctrine was incinerated in the U.S.

          The nonstop, and often unchallenged, corporate-fascist propaganda unleashed by that move has done ENORMOUS HARM to the Republic, and yanked American discourse alarmingly rightwards over the years, towards the irrational–and rabidly delusional.

          Watching the U.S., our greatest fears are focused on the crooked judges Big Money—through its GOP lackeys—has had placed everywhere on the courts!

          Citizens United is an absolute DISGRACE, and the Fascist Five who have imposed it on the country are TRAITORS, guilty of violating their judicial oath of office and the Constitution they swore to protect and uphold.

          Most in the media have become little more than corporate mouthpieces.

          Surely, the average PROSTITUTE has a stronger code of ethics.

          The only true hope for the country lies with the progressive, social democratic wing of the Democratic Party.

          No one better exemplifies that hope than Senator-elect ELIZABETH WARREN.

          • Michael Kollmorgen says:

            I think you are 100% correct.

            Also, if things don’t start to improve here Politically, Canada is going to see a dramatic influx of american “refugees”, now wanting to become Canadian citizens, sooner or later, probably sooner who just got disgusted with the system.

            If I could have tolerated the cold weather up there better, I’d of been a Canadian Citizen long ago. I seriously thought about it 30 years ago.

            I don’t know how Canada manages to tolerate the US.

          • billbear1961 says:

            We tolerate the U.S. because there are many good Americans, like you, who want what’s decent and fair, for America—and the world!

            (And because you’re our biggest trading partner!) 😉

            Happy Holidays, MK!

          • Michael Kollmorgen says:

            I’ve noticed over many years how the american dollar and the Canadian dollar flop back and forth, value wise.

            Some people here say how bad your country is, nearly socialized medicine, etc, etc, etc.

            Funny thing is though, your county now is beating the snot out of america economically.

            These nay-sayers down here never did know what they were talking about.

            You’re a great country. I wish our country would adopt your government style and go totally parliamentary.

            I think we’d have a lot less problems – at least politically speaking.

        • lana ward says:

          Fox News has been # I for 13 years. How does your news source rate? In the toilet?? LOL

      • lana ward says:

        Does this mean you agree with Stewart castrating Obama LOL!!

        • 324516 says:

          LANA I AM A LIBERAL AND A DEMOCRAT A QUESTION TO YOU.WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT A MAJORITY OFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE VOTED FOR THE PRESIDENT IN THE LAST ELECTION. I AS A BLACK MAN CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IT WASNT BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK ACTUALLY OF MIXED RACE HERTIAGE THAT NOVELITY HAD WORE OFF. EVEN IN THE BLACK COM. NO HE WON BECAUSE WE LIB. COULDN,T FIND NOT ONE REP. THAT WOULD DISCUSS OBAMA FAILURE WITH US. INSTEAD WE WERE TREATED TO OH HE,S NOT AN AMER. WHERE HIS BIRTH CER. OH HE A SOC. HES A COMU . WITHOUT ANY FACTS TO BACK UP WHAT YOU WERE SAYING. I AM OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER ATIME WHEN REP. AND DEM FOUGHT LIKE CATS AND DOGS TIP ONEAL AND REAGEN TO IRISH BLOKES BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY IT WASNT ABOUT THEM IT WAS ABOUT AMERICA I WORRYABOUT THE REP. PARTY MALCONTENTS TAKE OVER THEN WE LIB LOSE AND SO DOES AMER. WE LIB NEED SMART INTEL. REP. TO PUTA BREAK ON SOME OFOUR FAR OUT IDEAS AND YOU NEED US TO MAKE YOU DUST OFF YOUR TENNIS AND GET BACK INTO THE GAME SO FROM A BLACK MAN THAT LEANS MOSTLY DEMOC.. GIVE ME YOUR REASONS THAT I SHOULD TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOUR PARTY THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

          • lana ward says:

            Those who voted for Obama now wish they hadn’t. This country has never been in this bad of shape. He said he was going to transform America and most hate what he is transforming it into. Check out the states that are run by Republicans, they are doing much better than those run by the Dems. Somehow Republicans have a good sense for business and know how to prosper, the Dems don’t. Many blacks are turning Republican. They are worse off under Dem leadership than they have ever been

          • 324516 says:

            your wrong

          • lana ward says:

            I’m right, open your eyes

  4. Lynda says:

    Karl and Dick embarrassed the Fox team and for that they had to go. It takes a great deal to embarrass Faux, but these guys pulled if off in spades. Well done guys.

  5. Michael Kollmorgen says:

    I wish people would get one thing clear in their minds;

    Fox News is not a reputable News Source. They are classified as an Entertainment Channel.

    Also, all these right-wing Clear Channel Radio Stations, AM & FM alike are not news sources, but Entertainment Channels. All of these talk show hosts, people like Rush are not news reporters, but news and issue Propagandist.

    That’s why these radio programs break away once an hour to broadcast the real news usually from a source like CBS, ABC or even AP.

    • How In The Hell Can Fox Be Real News When They Make Shit Up Daily!! Fox Is Fake Like The GOP/Tea Party Are Patriots When In Fact They Are Just A Bunch Of Lying Terrorists And Traitors!!!

    • dalnb says:

      I see FOX about as entertaining as I see a kids freak show as being entertaining! I honestly believe if our military ever over-runs a talaban recruiting and training post they wil find recordings and videos of FOX talk show hosts being used to recruit terrorists; FOX gives the impression our nation is poorly governed and we would welcome the over-throw of our governmenet.

    • It’s precisely because of these “sources” of information that such a large part of American society is so “under-informed” and so susceptible to right wing propaganda and dogma. This explains why people vote against the best interests of the nation and more importantly fail to think for themselves. No wonder the middle class has declined.

      • bruskis1 says:

        Not only do people fail to vote for the best interest of the nation, but they fail to vote for there own best interest. I cannot tell you how many people complain to me, about the 50%of Americans getting a free ride, who have friend, relatives, or even themselves have recently been helped by a Govt agency. When I point that out to them, they explain, “I don’t mean people like me or my mom, or my brother, but THOSE PEOPLE, that take advantage of the system”. I cringe at the bigotry in there statements, and the complete lack of knowledge about what there party want to do to there own way of life…when we these people wake up and realize that they are voting themselves out of SS, Medicare, and any other type of Govt program that their party thinks is a entiltement? These people are lower middle class at best, upper poor, and they are voting to end there own govt help??????? Someone please explain it to me, because I am so confused….

        • notafoxfan says:

          bruskis1..i agree with your feelings,but human nature being what it is,often seemingly intelligent people are easily led or convinced..remember the aesops fable about the dog who had a large bone and walked across a bridge,then upon seeing his reflection in the water thought that dog had a bigger, better bone and he wanted it,so he opened his mouth to grab it and the one he had dropped in the water, leaving him with nothing..??thats the way a lot of people are..they cry foul about the u s government (big brother),but gladly will take what is offered to them personally..

        • Michael Kollmorgen says:

          Wait and see what “might” happen.

          IF they do cut SS, medicare, etc. out of the budget, the very first people who won’t have it anymore will call for a revolution, will be the ones that supported gutting them out of the budget in the first place.

          That’s what happens when you are a lower middle class white trash republican. They’d rather have their guns over food, a decent job, education or services to support your health.

          Goes to show just how effective Brainwashing really is. And, Republicans are experts at it.

        • jgsoliveira says:

          That used to confuse me. Now I know many are brainwashed.

  6. The reason we are not seeing people like Karl Rove on FOX or anywhere else is because he is busy trying to convince the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson and other wealthy GOP donors that the millions of dollars they gave him were well spent. Not an easy thing to do considering the results of the 11/6/12 election.

  7. frida says:

    Karl Rove and Morris lied too much. If they could be at Fox News by now, their business could have gone down rapidly. Any one who has brains can not take those lies anymore. It was really disgusting. One more left (Sean Hannity). The man uses his mouth like a needle.

  8. jarheadgene says:

    When I was working the GOTV Get Out The Vote phones for the local Obama campaign, The numbers, of those that actually answered the phone, who were in favor of Obama was staggering. So I was finding it hard to believe the FOX and Rassmusen Polls. And when FOX and Romney and Rove were all saying Obama did not have PA in the bag, and PA was going to surprise the DEMS, I was in awe….and I know the campaign got a little worried, so in the last couple of days Clinton came through here to shore up votes. Turns out there was no real need. Now some law makers (GOP) are looking to change our electorate rules, if they were in place for 2012, the President would have only gotten about 12 out of the 20 he did get. It seems you can be a MORONIC MURDOCH MEAT PUPPET like Hannity or ORielly or Coulter and keep a multimillon $$ job. OOOORRRR you can go way out on a limb and lie to yourself and everybody else like ROVE and MORRIS, end up looking like a Total FOOL, which they are. OOOORRR you can be like BRUCE BARTLETT and start telling the TRUTH (something FOX doesn’t deal well with). Of the three options the last two will get you dumped off of FOX. Wake up conservatives….FOX IS a LIAR !!!!!

  9. jarheadgene says:

    And unfortunately, for them, Romney cannot appoint Secret Service to protect those guys. HAHHA because THEY LOST !!!! ahahahhaha

  10. Karl Rove is Porky Pig!!! He was probably given wedgies in school!!!

  11. ETW says:

    Stations like Fox should be prevented by law from using the word “News” at the end of any broadcast. It’s pure rubbish…. Too bad a cadre of loyal, brainwashed viewers remains out there to provide justification for ad dollars.

  12. DICK MORRIS ANOTHER NASTY MAN, ALL THEIR MONEY, AND ALL THEIR MEN, AND PACK GROUPS., YOU SEE THE EVIL LOOSE AND EVENTUALLY GO AWAY. MORRIS AND ROE ARE JUST PART OF THE BLIGHT IN THIS WORLD AND WHAT THEY STAND FOR.

  13. What is so sad they misinformed and outright lied to people. Did you see the look on their faces when Rommney’s ass handed to him!

  14. ARTIE says:

    Fool’s names and fool’s faces are often seen in public places = FAUX NEWS!!!

  15. howa4x says:

    Fox is opinion news, and both Rove and Morris were so off base that even Alies can’t save them. Here is the good news. With every lie and story they made up about Obama, he still won.This shows the declining influence of Fox. The problem for them is they are trying to sell damaged goods, and brands that went out of date. White people in their 50-80’s Watch fox and listen to Rush. Rove the ass kisser of the wealthy, had nothing else to say. He struck out in the last inning and the last at bat. Morris was in an alternate reality. What else can Fox say about Obama? They are on a loosing slide now. The demographics are against them. It should be intresting

  16. Lynx says:

    Is it true that the Koch brothers threw a fund raiser barbecue after the election to help recoup their humiliating loses? I heard that the main meat course was rack of Rove and the side dishes included macaroni and Morse. Those two porkers could have fed a LOT of angry Repugnicans.

  17. jstsyn says:

    Hard to imagine rove had a position of real influence during the bush administration. No wonder things are a mess and we are probably lucky it is not much worse considering they had eight years to f it up.

  18. pogomcl says:

    think Murdoch let them hang themselves. It was in his best interest. they didn’t bother to read his twitter feed Nov 5 to see that he conceded a Romney loss–so pretty stupid. RM has to clean house and do good job of it if he wants his grubby hands on LAT and ChicTrib… and FoxNews lacks any credibility overall.

    but they were the first to call OH / election

  19. Ed says:

    And even CBS< ABC and NBC only do "soft" news.

  20. dalnb says:

    The loss of Karl Rove is no loss at all. He and Mitch McConnell (and their followers) have done more to prevent our national recovery than any other person(s) or group in the nation. The soooner McConnell is gone the sooner Washington and our nation can return to an acceptable level of political sanity!

    • Longawaitng says:

      dainb, you definitely should share in Obama’s nobel peace prize. Both of you have rendered the significance of liberal speech and nobel peace prize to “minus zero”.

  21. old_timer_37 says:

    Can’t understand why Republicans don’t know what Ailes FOX News.

  22. I agree with Maddow, Fox News is the propaganda arm of the Republican Party and should not be considered a news source. Get your news from Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show.”

  23. William says:

    People will only see what they want to, how sad our state of affairs is.

  24. Jack Wormer says:

    Well, these two Conservative LIGHTS have about 2-years to polish their resumes and cleave unto another Croessus-like SUCKER…

  25. notafoxfan says:

    i honestly dont know why anyone would consistently watch fox news in the first place..i think you are no longer seeing rove and a few others anymore because they have nothing else to add to fox news obama bashing at this point..fox simply has and will move on to others who spit fire and promote hatred on topics such as taxing the rich a bit more or the ever present middle east situation..fox news biggest problem is fact checking on any given issue..they push and promote their own agenda, without telling the actual truth and they get a lot of people to agree with them..its sad…watch hannity or oreilley a few times if you dont agree with me, and then watch msmbc or cnn..msnbc in particular will show both sides of an issue and have the written or video proof on any given topic..that is journalism and not one sided paranoia..

  26. marciano3rd says:

    The solution is very simple. Don’t watch Fox News!!

  27. Fox News…Wow!….Still misleading the public….Even Today…..

  28. It is call a “Romote Control!”

    Change the channel. They will change or go broke!

  29. thebunt says:

    When Dick Morris was suggesting that Romney would win Pennsylvania, the exact hour, it was possible to get EIGHT to ONE (8-1) if you wanted to back Romney to win Penn on one of the on-line betting sites.. Michigan was 10-1, Wisconsin and Minnesota were both 11-1. And of course Obama was a huge favorite, as he was during the entire election process. http://www.oddschecker listed all the odds for those betting on the internet. They listed the odds for about 20 different on-line betting sites. It was amazing that nobody would mention this. Poll takers can be wrong, or biased, and if they are wrong, they just take another poll. If bookmakers are wrong, they don’t eat.

    Just after the election they listed odds for the new Secretary of State. Kerry was favorite at about 3.5 to one. At the end of the scale they had Sarah Palin listed at 200-1 and Clint Eastwood at 500-1)

  30. craig says:

    if fox had any credibility and morals, they would change their name to fox politics. at least msnbc admits they are. problem with fox viewers is that they get opinion, and run with it as if it were real news. fox and it’s viewers are trapped in a bubble of an alternative reality.

  31. alumahead says:

    Fox is News for the Doomsday Preppers and Hear Comes Honey Boo Boo crowd. If you can manage to get reception in your bunker, then Fox News is for you. If you want to get a good laugh go visit the comments section at the Daily Caller or similar site (most are proud Fox News viewers). The Red State wonders are so rabid and mis-informed that if you didn’t know better you’d think it was some sort of gag site.

  32. The national memo is nothing but a pile of shit with idiots eating the lies spewed by the socialist elite that own/run this cesspool site. Everyone on the left is a traitor to the United States and should receive the same fate as a traitor. (execution) If America falls those traitors to the US will be the first to get the AXE.

    • amazonfan says:

      LOL

      Are you serious? Or is this meant to be satire? I hope so, because you’re taking stupidity & extremism to a whole new level.

    • Michael Kollmorgen says:

      IF American ever does fall, guess who is going to get the firing squad the first day?

      The Rich, Corporate Execs and their supporting Republican Politicians. Then it’ll filter down to all these right wing hate groups, anti-government weekend warrior-wanabees.

      And, they won’t be able to run to China either. China would probably shoot them faster than we would. They hate Traitors more than we do.

      France had their revolution and purged their society of all these nasty people. Britain did too. Russia certainly did as well.

      Mark my words, we’re next! Just a matter of time.

    • Stella53 says:

      LOL! Looks like you forgot to take your meds!

  33. rippper says:

    Along with Rush Limbarfbag, Racist Hannity, Bill “I’m perfect” O’Reilly, Dick “turncoat” Morris and Karl ” I don’t care whose life I put in danger” Rove should also leave the country. It would be a much better place without these assholes.

  34. rippper says:

    Fox embarrasses itself every night when Hannity and O’Reilly spew their vomit. Both of these morons believe their own lies.

  35. Lisztman says:

    Gee. I wonder how life in Topeka is treating him…

  36. This set of videos should be shown on MSNBC or CNN. It will not be viewed on FOX, because FOX had a paid agenda and got their butts beaten. I feel their pain, but, even sadder is that their egos do not permit them one scintilla of chagrin. This is the first election I remember where those who lost really think they won. Notice how they will plumment further down the perennian tubes when then, once again, block Obama’s agenda for returning the Shrub tax cuts (obscene to the max when they were put forth) to ONLY 98% of Americans. ONLY 98%. “Pity the Billionaires.” Ha.

  37. Rove does a great Porky pig imitation at the beginning of his talk with Chris Wallace.

  38. Stella53 says:

    Fox News is comical in a sick sort of way. Their hosts’ faces are all twisted and scrunched and all they do is whine and complain about everything! O’Reilly’s phoney outrage about the “war on Christmas” is a joke. All Sean Shamity does is phoney whining. I find them comical and could never take them serious. The only person at Faux News who is a true journalist is Sheppard Smith. The rest of them get paid to goad, cajole and lie.

  39. Real news, ABC, CBS? HA, HA, HA Go get a job

  40. Lord Barrington says:

    News source. LOL. On the version we get in Asia it’s all old washed up musicians. Pat Benatar? Good grief! I thought she died years ago. And Limbaugh? His followers are scary.

  41. olafaux says:

    3000 + Years ago, “David” asked, and David is STILL asking this question: “”Lord, who shall abide in thy Tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy Holy Hill?
    The answer? Well we found it @ Ps. 15:2-5.
    Amen
    God bless America!
    dick moris & kkk rove SHALL NOT!

  42. Wow… Do all of you very “vocal” people; believe there is “any” fair and balanced news broadcaster in the USA? I find reading the comments humorous – So what news channel is non bias? Trashing one news organization here? Bias anyone?
