‘Faux News’ haters slam Rob Lowe for watching Fox News

On Monday evening, actor Rob Lowe tuned in to Fox News to watch Shepard Smith’s coverage of Sandy after the storm made landfall. While Shep Smith has critics on both sides of the aisle, it was the oh-so-smart and totally tolerant “Faux News” haters who blasted Lowe for daring to flip the channel to Fox.

The nerve of Lowe, watching anything other than MSDNC!

Lowe did not endorse Romney (or anyone else, for that matter), though some do suspect that his presidential vote went to the GOP nominee.

Lowe dished it back to one particularly obnoxious follower.

As Twitchy has reported, Lowe also tunes in to CNN, though it’s often to take swipes at the anchors. Sadly, Piers Morgan is proud of that.

But Lowe kept his response classy.

    Nothing to see here just the thought police gearing up for their world wide domination.

    It’s incredible to me how some people think if others belive or think differently from them that they are somehow in the wrong… the my way or the highway kind of people need a reality check.

    • Tiffini

      Couldn’t agree more, watching (reading) all news sources is how you stay informed. These people sound too one-sided.

  • NRPax

    I honestly do not understand the vitriol directed at Fox News. If I want a more liberal slant, I can tune into ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, Al-Jazeera and NPR. One network does something different and it’s the end of the world?

  • Owen007

    Well, what’s he supposed to watch? MSNBC? CNN? Please. You watch FOX for news, and watch those other two for a good laugh.

    I guess I thought the “eaux” word ending was a “snarky” way to use the French spelling for words that rhyme with “GO”, like “Bordeaux”, “Chateaux”, etc. Not an alternate way to spell words that sound like “OX”, e.g., Beaux for Box, or Peaux for Pox. These idiots who spell Fox as Faux, provide the perfect exemplar for poster child liberalism: stupid, backward, and totally wrong.

      actually i think faux means fake in another language don’t know which one

    but the real news like cnn, cbs, abc, nbc, msnbc are ignoring benghazi?

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Okay, first, I am as conservative as they come, but I rarely if ever watch Fox News. All the liberal hatred against that network always cracks me up. It’s like making fun of “All My Children” since I don’t watch that either. They kind of waste their breath, and show how small they are as they continue their campaign against a channel that seems to not fall into the lockstep that the other three have done. Wah.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    So in the spirit of the post, what stupid, overused nicknames to our liberal crybabies fall to that you have noticed. My favorite is “Faux News.”

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      So much fail, because “faux” rhymes with “foe” so it doesn’t even work. Wanna bet the liberal braintrust actually thinks “Faux” is pronounced like “fox,” especially as they repeat each other like the sheep they are?

      • ceyanne

        They use “Faux” b/c faux is French for “false”. So they think they are being clever with the “x” ending and the “false” meaning, insinuating that Fox News is false news.

          The phrase quit being funny (if it even was) the minute was coined.

  • Donna Jackson

    These are the people that have a fit any time they think they are being told what to do with their bodies, but they sure can tell the rest of us what news to watch and how to vote.

  • TocksNedlog

    Stay classy, liberals.

    Rob Lowe just got hotter.

  • Love of Country


    @RobLowe Shep Fox News is your channel? I guess U vote Romney. No wonder it was so tough for you to play the brilliant Sam Seaborn,


    Hey kid …. it’s Owebamao supporters who fill every prison, welfare line, drug house, rehab center and soup kitchen to capacity …. don’t get things twisted, you idiot.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      I noticed the douche BVD has “Obama 2012” in his pic. All I needed to know.

  • $7421226

    wow, and Lowe was ‘so proud’ of his Revolutionary War ancestor, who is probably rolling in his grave over Lowe’s waffles. today you are either an AMERICAN or a democrat. in obama’s Amerika, you cannot be BOTH.

  • Kate

    How many of these people bashing Fox News have actually sat down and watched an hour of it? I watch Fox News, but I make sure to watch parts of CNN and, when I can stomach it, MSNBC. I’ve even read articles on HuffPo.

    One has to be able to articulate WHY he or she don’t like a news channel, besides blind loyalty to your political ideology.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      They just parrot what MSNBC and AP spoon-feed them.

    Omgeee…you just keep getting hotter!!! :)

    Can’t believe you watch Fox “News”, even Shep Smith. That network has
    absolutely zero credibility. Are U watching them for laughs?

    MSNBC is actually the “occupier” of that title. Close but no cigar Danny Boy.
    Funny if yet someone dissed his beloved MSDNC he would go into an uncontrollable rage.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    @RobLowe Watching FauxNews? That channel is pure scripted Hollywood entertainment #fixnews

    Unlike CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN?
