in this video clip from Fox News we have a group of folks discussing Dan Aykroyd and his recent comments on the Larry King show and if you ask me these people went out of their way to ridicule and demonize him for speaking out about UFO's and Aliens.




same video on Daily Motion


the video is titled "Aliens Hate Us" and starts out by calling Dan a "total wacko" and then paints a picture that the subject of UFO's and Aliens is just like "other crap"

right after that they jump on Aykroyd's comment about 9-11 and how Aliens might not want to contact us or reveal themselves because humans do stupid things. they then show Dan in a scene from one of his movies where the character he was playing could be seen as someone who is crazy.

then they try to say Dan was making a joke about the 9-11 comment and should have totally avoided the subject. the conversation then goes in the direction of painting a picture of him giving up his sanity and being "a alcoholic" because he promotes a wine company that he owns.


i already know this show is just a commentary program but what do you think about this ? is Fox News purposely presenting a one sided brainwashing agenda here and what happened to being "Fair and Balanced" ?





for anyone who hasn't seen Dan Aykroyd "Unplugged on UFOs" here's the video

Well....is a pretty good example of the intellectual vacuum that exists over at the Fox "news' channel, IMO

I was particularly amused by that horse-faced whiny-voiced simulcrum of a "Human Being" (aka Ann Coulter) being a guest on that "oh-so-intelligent" panel of boneheads.....

Says quite a lot for how desperate some of them can be, just to get ANY time on the boob-tube.....

The show is Red Eye and its for entertainment It is not a serious news show. Cant really take much they say as serious. I do not see this as Fox slanting anything. The show is like South Park - equal opportunity bashing. Nobody is left untouched. It actually is pretty balanced - since everyone gets a slam now and then.

I personally like the show for when I can not sleep at 3:00 am. Its pretty funny a lot of the times.

I dont see this as a big deal...at all.

Shame on you, you should know by now what crap you get fed if you watch Fox News.


They really are nothing more than entertainment in my eyes now. I expect no decent news from them, i expect any truth to be tucked under the chairs of the unrealistic pristene looking news anchors, and i expect any news of value to be overshadowed by a story of a little kitty at some point.

Fox News, fair and as balanced as a fat guy riding seesaw with a skinny kid.

They have a talking stack of newspaper making commentary on that show. Pretty much everything they say is meant to get a laugh. Really I just see it as a failed attempt at a comedy show. It is better than infomercials in the middle of the night though.

Weed, when you try to insult somebody by using vocabulary above your competence level, it helps if you double check the spelling before hitting 'send'. There's too much mockery of the subject from ALL directions, IMHO, but you have to admit that misspelled personal insults such as yours do make it LOOK more ridiculous than maybe it deserves.

Did they mention Aykroyd's story about being warned in a dream to come outside to see a UFO, but sleeping through the opportunity? That story is actually pretty laughable, if you actually did any investigation of it.

Simple minded fools.. god they piss me off, venomous and hateful bigots.
It's a shame cause Dan Aykroyd seems like such a nice guy, it takes courage to put yourself out like that as a celebrity and personally I commend him for it.
Here's to Dan Aykroyd, cheers!

By the way.. If you haven't seen the movie they show a clip from, do it.. it's disturbing but really unique in my opinion, maybe it's just nostalgia.. scared the hell out of me when I was younger.. the penis nose didn't make things better.

I do realize that this show is to get a quick laugh..

But calling someone a wacko is pretty harsh. I for one praise Dan for having the intestinal fortitude to speak up and say what he believes in....

Cheap shots, and name calling.. I'd expect nothing less from FOX.

LOL!

Very clever visual analogy.... ( ewww....it burns my eyes!!!
)

But, as GEL, up above, pointed out....it IS the "Red Eye" show, so not so much even attempting to even be 'fake' news, just blah-blah-blah-talk (Oh, but that is the very definition of Fox "news", usually, even when they ARE trying to be 'serious'....)

Has been repeatedly shown that the Fox "news" programs are nothing other than mouthpieces of propaganda, mostly for the "right" side of a certain political party in the USA. (That would be the 'GOP')....

Even Roger Ailes (grand Pooh-Bah and founder) has admitted it.

I was particularly amused, last week, by a full-page newspaper advert spread by Fox, touting their "news" team..... with photos of the 'team', to include, of all people Bill O'Reilly...along with Sean Hannity....BOTH (just two, for example) who will flip/flop back and forth, as to whether they are "newsmen", or "commentators"...

Really, funny, if it wasn't so tragic.....


BUT...sinking to a new low (as if that's even possible, at this point, by 'dissing' Dan Akroyd?

Pathetic.....

(Guessing it follows from their already written "playbook" that labels ANYONE from Hollywood as some sort of --- in their 'view' --- nutjob to start with, regardless of the topic. Oh, 'Moses" himself, NRA chief Charlton Heston, and his ilk....like Angelina Jolie's father, excepted of course...)

Who is that smarmy tool?


I don't care what Dan Aykroyd believes... he's a great guy, highly intelligent, funny, gracious, and worth more as a person than a hundred of those smug little twits.

Dan Aykroyd seemed to ridicule the whole UFO field himself on Larry King just to get laughs. He wasn't serious for a second, just manic, over the top and completely unfunny.

Maybe if he'd contributed some intelligent debate on Larry King he wouldn't be getting attacked as a 'UFO nut' now.

Okay. 23 different alien races coming to "visit" us, but at the same time, they want "nothing to do with us". Absurd.

Sorry, but as much as I admire Dan's acting and musicianship, he is a full blown nut bar when it comes to aliens and the paranormal. I'd blame his brother and a lot of pot for getting him into the ghost/alien/paranormal nonsense and his Psi Factor show. His brother is quite the enthusiast. But come on, Dan. Let's get real.

Word that was "misspelled", please....oh...."simulacrum". Got it. Thanks, Great Bird of the Galaxy!*


Yeah, don't always use spell check on this borrowed laptop today.

Wish I had ground support from the KSC, would have helped greatly....

*That moniker rightly belongs to Gene Roddenberry, but after his passing, I use my (very little) authority, here, (none, actually...) to pass that on to you, because I respect your input...usually. (past tense, for now...)




....guessing, though, in terms of misspellings, THAT one was fairly minor. Did anyone miss my drift???

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BTW, J.O.--- Care to chime in on Akryod's "23 alien species" comment?
Sounds (to me) as if he's repeating what has been available, on the Web, for some time now.

Frankly, to assume 23 viable, intelligent and space-capable species, all within our "local neighborhood" beggars belief, to my mind.

I mean, I like Star Trek as much as the next guy or gal, but I can separate a fictional, story-driven commercial "enterprise"
from a dose of reality, and logic, and rational thinking about the incredible, incredible coincidence of SO MANY species, existing in the same time period (based on geological timescales) and all with range of OUR little portion of the galaxy?

Ok. Either this thread is about Aliens & UFOs or its not. Im not sure why the topic is focusing on Fox News.
This is the Alien & UFO Forum.

what a bunch of vacuous arrogant idiots.
i used to watch FOX for a month or two to try and get a feel for what the average joe may believe or enjoy and after a few weeks of attempting to educate myself to the uneducated I gave up because I was starting to feel ill. Mentally and spiritually and physically. It was just repetitive airheaded unfunny garbage. So the fact that they make fun of someone for speaking their mind and totally and unsurprisingly miss the fact that Akroyd didn't say there are such and such number of alien species, but rather it was an English government official, is very illustrative.

and furthermore i have a great sense of humour but there is nothing funny about straight mockery unless you are making some kind of point of your own which they obviously did not have.
