Video: Fox News goes ballistic over Iran

FoxAlert1
Still from video below

Robert Bridge writes for RT:

[…] Just how long and deep America has snorted from the cracked mirror of imperial power, intoxicating the nation with delusions of grandeur and exceptionalism, was nowhere more apparent than this week in the Fox News studios where five pugnacious pundits cheerleaded for a full-blown clash with Iran (the Full Metal Jacket moment starts around the 3:10 mark).

[…] By conjuring up the insane idea of bombing Tehran over nothing more than a mishap, Tantaros has exposed herself as a smoking gun, a media weapon of mass destruction, proving exactly how lethal and dangerous the Western mainstream media message has become irrespective of the channel. Instead of these media pundits speaking from a position of level-headed neutrality, reasonably weighing issues of enormous gravity in a fair, unbiased and non-hysterical manner, they come out screaming and shooting from the hip. At the same time, allowing any opposing voice to balance the circus act has now become an exception as opposed to the rule.
It may well prove to be the tragedy of our times that the Fourth Estate is actually proving to be more gung-ho about war and conflict than those men and women now serving in the military forces. […]

Not so much a Fourth Estate, more like a Fifth Column these days.

Faux News is full of clowns that are contributing to the idea of starting of a major conflict. For instance with Russia. They are obviously too dim to realise that it will not be a news event as it will be live and personal.

What a bunch of utter ignoramuses. The women twittering on about Regan had seemingly never heard of Oliver North. The presenter described freeing the US naval personnel as ‘the latest provocation’. That really is the height of utter stupidity. It is little wonder that people globally perceive US citizens as being so stupid. It is not altogether the fault of the US people – but letting foreigners take over their media really is. Unfortunately, we here in the UK have made that very same mistake too – so what does that say about us? The truth is – in both… Read more »

What does it mean that 4 identically dressed Barbie dolls (high heels, sheath dresses, high grooming) are the ones screaming for war seated around a hapless male moderator?

All this is nothing but Zionist Jewish Israeli propaganda. they try to demonize Iran when Iran does not have any nuclear weapons and is not pursuing to have any. Five Nations and the USA agreed on a nuclear deal with Iran. But the Zionist Israel are mad as hell, what they want is the US to go and annihilate Iran for Israel imperialism, Greater Israel and Jewish control of the whole Middle East to start with.
Remember that all the TV Stations are owned and controlled by the Jewish Cabal.

these so called pundits are pro-war republicans, not objective journalists. they`ve never been to a conflict and seen, up close the human results of war, been shot at.

The so-called fourth estate has almost always been more gung-ho about imperial military adventures than the people who actually have to do the killing and dying. Journalism by its nature is infested with play-actors, narcissists and fantasists for whom phrase-making and posturing substitute for reality. They see the world as a movie in which they are the directors; but all they are in fact are prostitutes to power.
