FOX News Anchor Knows His Porn

It’s not surprising that FOX News is throwing a shit fit about the Smut for Smut campaign.

But the clip below is *really* worth watching for the last 30 seconds.

Daily Show gold, I tell you…

    I like how she jumps right into “AND WHAT DO THE CHRISTIANS THINK??” Because, you know, Muslims and Jews don’t have opinions, obviously…

  • KeithLM

    That actually seemed like a well-reasoned look at the topic. It was only mildly sensationalist, it acknowledged that only some people were upset about it, it interviewed people from both sides and gave them the chance to respond, and it even looked at the legal issues involved.

    WTF? Has Fox actually hired some legitimate journalists?

  • Jeff Dale

    The clip of the young woman at 1:37 (1st of 3 Xians) was excerpted from a slightly longer clip that I saw last night. In the slightly longer clip, she goes on to say, “God is not just about killing people…”

    We have a candidate for unintentionally funny Xian comment of the year. Not to mention one of the easiest setups for any atheist who happens to be on hand.

    I have a theory as to why Faux News cut out that part of the clip for this report. It’s because they wanted to leave enough time for the lawyer at the end to say he knows his porn.

  • CS Shelton

    “He went there” … Thanks for telling me where to skip to for the LOLs. I’m allergic to Fox News.
    - xD hahahaha!

    @Amy-Jean Fox News doesn’t recognize other religions in this case because of the implied “Christian Nation” notion.

  • Marcus

    “I know my porn.”

    Man… That guy kicks ass.

  • Heidi

    I love that he automatically assumes she’s familiar with the porn flick he mentions.

  • Yeonghoon

    As always sensationalist, when are they ever going to lose the obnoxious tones – they also heavily edited the atheist segment, and as Jeff said the whiny girl’s “god isn’t just about killing people” (Oh so it’s homocide + love? Alright then, ahem) is cut out, I do have to admit that faux made me rofl with the last 30 or so seconds… Pirates 2 haha you gotta be kidding me, yeah we all went there, or at least I did…eeek!

    I also love how we atheists rally up against faux – ah solidarity :)

  • JD

    Mike, some Fox News pundits and guests do occasionally mention Jews in their bid for tokenism. Or they appeal to Judeo-Christian founding, conveniently forgetting the whole the codified-slavery-into-the-constitution bit. I don’t recall any Jewish names listed in the Philadelphia Convention, so we’ll have to blame that on the Christians.

    Why not just put the raciest and most violent verses on a banner? Especially the stories about incest. I also recall a passage where a father sent his daughter to be raped by a mob and the daughter died. Some passages from Leviticus are a hoot, like wow, you needed commands against bestiality to be written down to know it’s wrong?

  • John

    The Bible MAY have the worldview that best portrays the universe as it is. If so, then it needs to be considered, regardless of the parts that are hard to explain or are distasteful to us. (Keep in mind a view of the universe without a creator has some hard to explain facets, as well.) If true, our relationship with the most important entity may depend on it. As for porn, it portrays something CLEARLY false (fantasy). It objectifies women, and makes good relationships with them more difficult. I’ll take the former over the latter, thank you.

  • James

    John,

    Christianity is a fantasy! And it is CLEARLY false.

    Your problem with pornography is that much of it objectifies women? Do you even know the numerous forms of objectification and devaluation of individuals and groups that is advocated in the bible? I can contend that a lot of pornographic fantasies sprang from the unnatural suppression of sexual identity from bible ideologies.

    Christians are setting society back. Certainly isn’t worth all the death and destruction inspired by it. Grow up and get over god.

  • Heidi

    Well, I am a woman, and I am FAR more offended by religion than by porn. Heff doesn’t bang on my door at 8:00 am on a Saturday shoving Playboys in my face. But if he did, I would still be less offended.

  • j.klarr

    This is Fox News people (and don’t call it Faux News, because what the f–k is FOH NOOZ?), why would they even have to attempt spin or bias? You have the audience on your side once you say “Atheists.” Now I don’t complain overmuch in the face of adversity, but it is a fact that Atheists are the most hated minority in America, if not the world.

    This campaign is creative, only time will tell if it is effective. Personally, I’d rather fap to the incest stories, the pay to marry a virgin stories, and the male-domination-over-women stories in the Bible, but I’ve got strange tastes in porn just like everyone else. I can’t fap to the shoops in a Playboy.

    Not everyone has the same tastes as I do though. So… trade your smut for smut! Will trade out my Bibles for softcore mags. Must be 18+ and have valid ID to receive a Bible. Softcore Bibles only, no literal versions will be given out.

    Perhaps they could trade out porn AND science books, then place the holy books on two halves of the table to show which books are traded out more. Then it either tell people that almost nobody actually reads their holy books and would rather have porn, or it would show that atheists would rather learn science than look at porn. Let people interpret the data however they want to.

  • Heidi

    (and don’t call it Faux News, because what the f–k is FOH NOOZ?)

    It would be the kind of news they have on that network.

    From Dictionary.com:

    faux:
    ? ?/fo?/ Show Spelled[foh]
    –adjective
    artificial or imitation; fake: a brooch with faux pearls.

    i.e. Faux News = A network with Fake News.

    I think the reporter missed a point (or intentionally misrepresented it) when he said that the atheist group was “equating porn with religion.” No… they were not. They were equating the bible to porn… and the koran to porn. That’s a pretty huge difference, in my opinion.

  • Kyure Lirnglot

    Damn, I would have loved to shown up with a copy of Dawkin’s The God Delusion and said it was a holy text for atheists and for then to give me porn with a camera. They would have shit bricks.

    I get that feeling this wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for Weasel News, this is custom designed for shock value, jus to get on the news. I see a rosy career in PR for the students involved…

  • Amy Brown

    did no one notice that it isnt Fox news but MOX news? might want to change the title ;)

  • michel

    She says she doesn’t understand what this as to do with god ,. i guess she never read the bible , its full of absurdity’s and smut, for example ,.
    for the black girl , send this to your mom and dad.
    EXODUS 21:20-21 – According to God’s law, it was wrong to beat a slave to the point of death. But if the slave survived and got back up within a few days, the beating wasn’t punishable, because the slave was the property of the master. (God endorsed slavery.)

    And what about this little gem.
    GENESIS 34:13 – Shechem had premarital sex with Jacob’s daughter Dinah, which angered Jacob’s sons. Shechem and his father, Hamor, agree to circumcision for the men in the city in order for Shechem to marry Dinah and make Jacob’s other daughters eligible for the men of the city. Three days later, while the men are still enduring the pain of circumcision, Jacob’s sons attack the unsuspecting city, killing Shechem and Hamor with swords, looting the city, seizing the flocks, herds, possessions and wealth, plundering the houses and carrying off their women and children.
    What about this fine fathers decision to give his daughters to a mob.

    GENESIS 19:6- In Sodom, Lot’s home was assaulted by a homosexual mob seeking to have relations with two angels. Lot volunteers his virgin daughters to the crowd, saying “you can do what you like with them” as long as the guests are left alone.
    Then apparently it was ok with god because.

    GENESIS 19:26: God, apparently un-offended by the proposed rape of Lot’s virgin daughters, turned Lot’s wife to a pillar of salt for the heinous crime of looking over her shoulder.

    just to mention a few silly things in that rag called the bible.

    Damn, I would have loved to shown up with a copy of Dawkin’s The God Delusion and said it was a holy text for atheists and for then to give me porn with a camera.

    Yeah, it’s a holy text for atheists in the same way that the phone book is a holy text for people with phones. Wiseassedness FAIL.

    Also, porn with a camera was not part of the deal. Commas are your friends.

  • Heidi

    Forgot to comment on this.

    did no one notice that it isnt Fox news but MOX news?

    Did you not notice that “Mox” news is just the website that presented the clip? And that during the entire exchange there is a little Fox News logo in the bottom left corner?

    Regardless of what anyone says, religion and god are human inventions to help the weak and the stupid cope with the fact that we are all going to die. If you think about it this world is much more beautiful if some selfish, bored god didn’t create it and us to resemble him yet still be flawed to such a degree..If this all happened by chance, by the mere chance of this planet having water, and being close enough to a star to create an ecosystem of organisms to evolve into us. Think of the chances of that happening and guess what …. it did! That to me is much more beautiful..

    I agree that this was an excellent PR move. Shocking, marvelous, and attention getting. Though I would have probably opted for handing out science books in brown paper bags and infographic flyers of hypocrisy in religion. Then it would have been a pious porny pun.
