Time and time again, Fox News has continued to push Republican propaganda, even after their own reporters have discovered it is not true. Note that, while slanted to the left, MSNBC opinion shows are fact based, but Fox’s are lie based. Fox News’ credibility just doesn’t exist anymore. No wonder I call Faux Noise the Republican Ministry of Propaganda."

I couldn't agree with you more – except that I don't think MSNBC is slanted to the Left – but I am European not American!

Re Kim Jong-Un – the button that will launch a nuclear missile is on his nightstand? The whole world had better start praying that he doesn't ever have a nightmare or walk in his sleep, or ANYTHING alarming – even trying to swat a mosquito could have terrible consequences!

Loved the the interview. None of it surprised me. I've never thought of Fox "news" as a legitimate journalistic organization. All of that is just part of Rupert Murdoch's ultra conservative media at work. I would LOVE to find out that he and his minions have been doing here what they did in the UK. I think they were completely on point when they talked about MSNBC. Sure, they have an agenda, but they don't just come out with opinions unsupported by data. When Rachel goes off on a topic she does it with charts, facts, interviews not just her own point of view. That is how journalism should be. Well, objective would be nice but that left the station with Walter Cronkite I'm afraid. Good story, great interview.

You know before the little emperor in NK took the throne I saw some video of him at a college campus somewhere in Europe, he seemed almost normal and I had hope that when he did take over, he might be a more reasonable person to deal with. Maybe he will be once he has his own military leaders in place, but I think he is aware that if he strayed from the party line, his dad's cohorts could and probably would take him down in a heartbeat. So I'm not sure if he really is as crazy as he sounds or if he is as crazy as he needs to be to stay in power right now. He sure does do a good imitation of his old man though. Fool.

Rubio needs more than just plain bottled water to wash out the BS he is now spewing...
Maybe some soap too... Naw, I don't think that will work either.

The people in Florida had better wise up to the g o p puke Rubio is becoming just to appease
the g o p puke party liners.

Love your homemade cartoons. They are "spot-on".

Ty, Tom.

Thanks Tom for the post.
The MoveOn video just proves what we have know all along regarding the Faux Noise agenda.
Thank you for introducing us to the newest NRA member..LOL. Andy is the best satirist there is!! Love his NY Times articles!
The GOP better get their eulogy printed up as their death as a political party is nigh.
Yep, Rubio didn't like the taste. Wonderful cartoon.
Read, viewed and noted.

I was gagging all the time trying to watch Rubio give his speech, The government can't help any one and then he goes on to say the the government has helped him and his family so which is it Rubio you need to get your facts before you open your big trap.

Puzzle — 5:15 From fame to ignomy in one day! At least I was under average, but only just!

MoveOn — Dirty laundry indeed! Even bleach won't get that laundry clean.

The New Yorker — I love the parity of the NRA and North Korea. Scary! Two wingnuts on a collision course.

MSNBC — Remember the theme music to MASH — Suicide is Painless? I think that must be the theme music for the Republican/Teabaggers. They are so caught up in their own ideological machinations that they cannot see what is happening. They are committing political suicide. It might be painless for them, but it is painful for everybody else who has to endure their tantrums and stupidity. 2014 is coming!

Cartoon — Ready for the big times yet Rubio? Didn't think so. BTW, that nice warm feeling you have, good thing you're wearing a dark suit because you just peed your pants! Water can do that to you.

So, if we are looking for meaningful immigration reform and part of that is learning the language of our country -just why in the hell did he deliver his comments in Spanish and first no less???? Go on recess Marco.

And so it begins ... the early onset of destruction to what's possible. Don't look now but the transparency of fear is leaking out.
