Someone who rejects right-wing conservatism and left-wing progressivism equally. An updated or new classical liberal -- not just politically, but also philosophically and culturally. New Liberals or neoliberals reject both Rightist moral dogmatism and Leftist moral relativism -- both the pre-modernist religious Right and the post-modernist socialist Left. They generally favor both economic freedom (like the Republicans) and social and personal freedom (like the Democrats). New Liberals tend to believe in (1) the philosophy of reason and science; (2) the ethics of individualism and self-interest; (3) and the politics of liberty and capitalism. Most lean toward atheism, hedonism, and libertarianism.
Historian Victor Davis Hanson and atheist Sam Harris are examples of New Liberals, as well as many current writers who favor the literature of the Greek, Roman, Renaissance, and Enlightenment classics.

1. A person who describes themselves as a Democrat, but is actually quite conservative, such as Zell Miller. FOX News always gives them airtime in hopes that they can claim to be "fair and balanced."

2. Someone on FOX News who is actually a liberal, but either dumb or weak, and exists primarily as a punching bag for the conservatives on the show. Alan Colmes is an example.

Someone who claims to be a liberal or Democrat, but has positions and a voting record reflecting that of a conservative or Republican. See also DINO.
One who is often called a "Fox News liberal" is Alan Colmes, co-host (with Sean Hannity) of Hannity & Colmes; he is criticised by liberal commentators, including author and talk show host Al Franken, as weak and unable to effectively debate his decisively conservative counterpart.
That op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal is the weakest rebuttal to the pro-Bush article he was trying to refute. He's a milquetoast Fox News liberal if you ask me.

Niles and Frasier Crane type people who think they're liberals but are conservatives who sit on the couch all day to drink beer and watch Fox News. They also vote for Donald J. Trump. They're idiots.
Fox News liberals are self proclaimed liberals who are actually conservatives and listen to what the dumb fucks over at Fox News tell them.

Boy, it’s a good thing the Liberal News Media relentlessly investigated those false claims of WMDs’ isn’t it? Otherwise, hundreds of thousands of people would have died needlessly and we would have been stuck in a hellish war for at least a decade!
