Jim Carrey vs. Fox News



quote:

Jim Carrey is a comedian, but his beef with Fox News is no laughing matter. In a press release sent to Fox on Friday, Carrey calls the network "a media colostomy bag."

The feud stems back to a video Carrey recently made for Funny or Die, in which he weighs in on the debate over banning assault weapons with a Hee Haw-style parody poking fun at Charlton Heston and other gun enthusiasts.

Fox News' Greg Gutfield aired a segment on the video, calling Carrey a "dirty, stinking coward," and said that the video made him want to "go out and buy a gun."

"Since I released my 'Cold Dead Hand' video on Funny or Die this week, I have watched Fux News rant, rave, bare its fangs and viciously slander me because of my stand against large magazines and assault rifles," Carrey wrote. "I would take them to task legally if I felt they were worth my time or that anyone with a brain in their head could actually fall for such irresponsible buffoonery. ... In my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue."

Just curious, what exactly would his legal recourse have been if he went through with it? Sue for defamation?

Look at the movies made by Heston during his career, glance at his actions during the civil rights era of America. Then look at the all time funniest scene of Carreys' movies. He is talking out of his ass. Enough said.

Jim Carrey's career is basically dead. He's just doing this to get his name in the press again.

I liked Jim Carey the actor. But when he opens his mouth about political stuff, he sounds so fricking stupid. The way he goes about it is so immature.

There is no comparision to be made between these two as actors. And none as men, either.

Yep. He was insulting all law abiding gun owners, did he think they'd love him for it.

His 5 year old audience grew up, and now has to pay bills...

He is no different than Peirce Morgan, other then Morgan is still on TV. Neither are from this country and have no voice in the matter.

Carrey has dual citizenship so he has the right to voice his opinion.

In a related story liberal patients with colon cancer/colostomies were offended by Mr Carey's words. They have requested a formal inquiry by Mr Holder regarding the following:

-ass talking
-what can lawfully enter the colon
-same colon reversal surgery

Liberal bladder cancer patients with urostomies were left absolutely speechless by his apathy.

When Carey learned of the dissent with the herd he arse talked the following, "The first group is just full of shite while the others are just plain pissed off." He concluded by making veiled threats and overt ones, "If you do not agree with me, I will tear you a new a-hole".

Moral of the story: our society is filled with a bunch of sacks of shite on many levels....

They have a voice... they just don't have a vote. They do live in this country, after all.

He was funny in Liar Liar, which was a take off of an episode of Twilight Zone where a used car salesman could not tell a lie.
Otherwise, I don't find any of his stuff funny.

Fox = Tea Party. Tea Party = stop Obama. We'd be a full blown, weaponless and defenseless bunch of arse kissers by now, if it weren't for Fox.

Fox News represents and presents the views of the % demographic that supports them. A LOT.

Carrey has lost it. Like a lot of Progs who can't stand having their lunacy mocked in public.

Forward.
