    CNN bosses are terrified of what Ted Turner would say… for good reason.

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    The Duggar news has made it across the Pond this morning, with strong emphasis on the FRC and Huckabee, and a few fingers at FOX and Santorum. BBC has noted even FOX is even covering the story.

    • Has the BBC caught up with stories of Muslim rape gangs victimizing thousands of underage non-Muslim girls – like in Rotherham? It’s in their own country, not here like Dugger. Any stories on why the local leftist governments worry more about being PC or being called racist than protecting these girls?
      Checking their web site, I did not see the word Muslim nor much analysis of the government inaction. I searched under Rotherham rape.

      • Larry Kelly

        Reporting intensified to delight in any misery of those not sharing their belief system. Pretty much the core of all trolls.

        • Cecelia

          You’d think that a personality type that is innately inclined to enjoy piquing people would be the most brilliant internet troll.

          It’s interesting that this is not the case. “A natural” stands out too much in a way that is not the case for those internet militants who have had to hone troll techniques and a sense of subtlety in them.

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    Turner. A great visionary. Created cable news. A happy birth until we discovered it was Rosemary’s baby.

    • Achilles Plunket

      He was a visionary. It’s a shame it ended like it did. The Braves miss him too.

      • Larry Kelly

        He was and is one of a kind.

  • Just saw an attorney brought in as an ‘expert’. When asked if the Prosecution can appeal the not guilty verdict, she replied ‘They absolutely can’.
    I don’t know who Rebecca LeGrand is but I wouldn’t hire her to get my dog out of the pound.

    • Cecelia

      Was that about the police officer who shot the black couple?

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      What country does she practice law in? Or should I say planet.

    Since Mike C. has left, I will post the O’Reilly History Quiz for him. It’s Billy the Kid, and I have no idea how to embed it: http://www.billoreilly.com/quiz?categoryID=3 I will try to do this until Mike is able to return. It is the least that I can do. By the way, I got 8 of 10, missed 2 and 10.

    • Larry Kelly

      5 out of 10. pretty poor shootn’

    • Cecelia

      Zero of 10 correct.

      I’m serious.

      That’s a record that no one may equal.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I’m sure that it has been equalled many times, especially by The Annoyer. You, however, are honest enough to admit it. I admire honesty. We sure as hell need more of it in the world.

        • Cecelia

          You’re a doll, NN.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Many would disagree.

          • Cecelia

            Theyd be wrong.

    • GATXER

      1 of 10….wonder if that’s because I NEVER watch westerns. Gee I can usually guess better than that even when I haven’t watch the news all week.

    • I’m back. Since Legends & Lies began, each O’RHQ is centered around that week’s episode. Since I’ve only seen one, David Crockett, I only linked to one.

      Thank you for linking in my absence.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Glad to see you back, Mike. I was glad to provide the links for you. Hopefully, the roach is gone. I bought the companion book to “Legends & Lies.” It’s an interesting read.

  • sky303

    The Current CNN is not Ted Turner’s CNN , his CNN was better, just like his HLN was better.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    O’Reilly Top Story Quiz, “Obama’s War on Poverty:” http://www.billoreilly.com/quiz?categoryID=5

    • I got 9 out of 10 right, missing #5.

  • Re: MediaBuzz videos: … Dave”: I thought irony and snark didn’t pollute the discourse until Jon Stewart first hosted The Daily Show. Though I couldn’t stand Dave’s politics, the early years of show helped get me through middle and high school. After the infamous O’Reilly interview in January 2006, my view of Dave soured, but not to the point that I didn’t watch when guests I liked, mainly comedians and Regis Philbin, were on.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Dave turned into a bitter old man in front of our eyes. I think that a lot of it had to do with events going on in his private life.

      • Cecelia

        I think he started the whole ironic – we ‘re not laughing with you, but at you- school of comedy.

        • If he started it, then Jon Stewart expanded it and Rachel Maddow started a separate campus.

          • I really liked Paul and the band. The running gag of the horn section raising their hands was great.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Remember Johnny Dark? He was hilarious.

          • Yes, I do, and he was.

    • gcblues

      my ally in arms, you caved!

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        He didn’t cave, he waited for the fool to leave before returning.

  • Larry Kelly

    Rev. Al is coming to Cleveland. Though less than a hour away, I won’t hunt for my autograph book.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      He reminds me of a human version of a lamprey.

  • Re: “Shafer: What liberals still don’t understand about Fox News”: This is trending from the left on Facebook.

    • Our most popular link this weekend too. Makes some valid points along with repeating some dubious and/or descredited memes. (Ten years ago people were predicting Fox’s audience would age out of existence and yet today it is as dominant in the 25-54 demo as ever. Sounds like they’re using the ‘global warming’ models.)

      • Maybe the dubious and/or discredited memes are why liberals love it.

      • Larry Kelly

        The same people predicting this were the same predicting the end of Republicans. Still predicting I suppose on Twitter regardless of evidence. Hope springs eternal.

  • This weekend’s most popular links:
    5 Ted Turner
    4 big bad Fox
    3 Rev fat-shames
    2 impact coverage
    And the most popular links in this weekend’s links…
    1 What liberals still don’t understand about Fox News.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Lily Langtry was in for Jenna Lee. She brightened up what is usually a sad day for me.
