It's a little embarrassing to call out Fox News on the Douchebag Decree, because that channel is basically a love letter to this column: "Dear Douchebag Decree, I will always be here for you. You will never be lonely as long as I'm around. Love always, Fox News." But it's also embarrassing to let the outrageously offensive commentary go without reminding the Internet that we DON'T just shake our heads and sigh every time Bill O' Reilly et al. run their fool mouths. We get mad as hell, and we tell people about it. On the Douche slab this week are Dana Perino and the rest of the commentators on "The Five," for their responses to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requirement that insurance cover the cost of birth control.
The murder of Kansas physician George Tiller is a devastating and,
unfortunately, perfect illustration of the stupid, hypocritical,
blindered self-righteousness of the anti-choice movement. And just as
painful as the news itself is seeing the variety of twists and dodges
with which the mainstream media does—or doesn't—cover it.
