Bundy’s public feud with the Bureau of Land Management over his refusal to pay grazing fees received extensive support from Fox News, which devoted nearly five hours of primetime coverage to the story’.
‘Sean Hannity provided him so much positive coverage, Bundy praised the Fox News host as a “hero.”
‘By noon on April 24, Fox had mentioned the rancher only twice, and never covered his racist comments’.
‘On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy drew a parallel between Bundy’s standoff and the situation of two Texas landowners, and Fox’s Andrew Napolitano told viewers to “forget the battle in Nevada” to focus on events in Texas instead’ and let’s hope their not ignorant racists too ’cause that sure makes us look like the idiots we are’.

‘A Republican lawmaker from New Hampshire on Wednesday said that women are paid less than men because they don’t work as hard or as often, insisting throughout his speech that his argument was legitimate, despite objections from his fellow lawmakers’.
‘State Rep. Will Infantine (R)’
“Men, by and large, make more because of some of the things they do.”
“Their jobs are, by and large, riskier”.
“They don’t mind working nights and weekends”.
“They don’t mind working overtime or outdoors.”
“Men work on average more than six hours a week longer than women do:
“Women make half of what men do because of flexibility of work, men are more motivated by money than women are.”
