    The MSNBC definition of “hard news” kind of reminds me of Chris Griffin’s definition of “hard gas.”

    Elisabeth received a MUCH nicer sendoff than Gretchen did. Here’s hoping Ainsley gets the job when she returns from maternity leave.

    • Fox News Fan

      Why did Gretchen need some big send off? She went from the morning to the afternoon.

    So glad to see Obama make that 40 foot putt on CBS THIS MORNING and watch him ham it up. So did the anchors as they just had to show it twice. Not a word of the six soldiers he sent to Afganistan gettin blown to bits two days ago.

    I’ve noticed that Major Garrett who was impossible to discern bias in his long stay at FOX is pretty transparent now he is at CBS. I think it’s because he really, really hates Trump.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Obama has his priorities, which are pretty obvious.

  • Larry Kelly

    Donald Trump to ring in the New Year with Fox News. You heard it here first, Trump fanboys.

    • Marty

      I heard about it the other day. Suffice it to say I won’t be watching.

    • Grandpa D

      I guess Grandma J and I will have to change plans. Neither of us can stand Trump.

    • As I understand it he’s going to be on for the countdown for about 15 minutes. 14 minutes too many for some. I wonder if this is why they chose Bolling and Guilfoyle to co-host NYE. I thought it an odd coupling when it was announced, but if the goal was to get Trump to make an appearance, that might explain it.

        I miss the old Hemmer and Kelly days that was my favorite

  • Fox News Fan

    Poor twitter.com/ericbolling getting hammered on twitter about Donald Trump being on the NYE show.

    • Marty

      And he is presently getting hammered by Greg Gutfeld on The Five for defending Donald Trump’s disgusting rhetoric. Trumpsplaining. Bolling touchy on the subject.

      • Yes it was clear that he found Greg’s disagreement quite annoying.

        • Marty

          I was hoping that line of discussion would have lasted a lot longer so someone on that network would finally blow the lid off the incessant need to defend and explain DT. Someone needs to confront the issue. Trumpshaming.

          • Larry Kelly

            Well, Trump is right about Clinton being a liar. I can explain that if you like.

    • Michael T

      Did you see the number of Twitter users who just discovered they had been blocked by Bolling in the past and couldn’t access his Twitter feed?

      I was one of them and I’ve never been blocked by anyone. Some claimed they only made one or two mild criticisms and stated for obvious reasons that, “He’s as thin-skinned as his idol Donald Trump.”

      I found it all kind of funny…and revelatory of course. Plus I have a backup Twitter account I haven’t used in months to gain access to what all the fuss is about.

      • Fox News Fan

        It’s hilarious how thin skinned Bolling can be.
        Joe (Mediaite) is a “Bolling Mini-Me”, he’s as thin skinned or worse than Bolling.

        Bolling isn’t even bright enough to just “mute”.

        Bolling actually blocked me for pointing out how all the # nonsense was doing nothing for #CashinIn’s ratings. He flipped out cause he feared his fans would catch on and quit spamming #CashinIn for hours on Saturdays. That was before he switched to the even more worthless… #WakeUpAmerica. He brags about that stuff etc… even mentioned it to TRUMP. Yet, CashinIn loses to all the other COFB shows. Heck, this week it got beat by #BullsAndBears by around 550,000 viewers.

  • Re: “Missing Dick Clark”: Me, too. Assuming Kathy Griffin is co-hosting again on CNN, having Trump on FNC must be a way to fight bombast with bombast.

      I am so old that I fondly remember Guy Lombardo. It just doesn’t seem like New Year’s Eve without him.

      • Guy Lombardo did a short bit on Laugh-In. I remember it in its entirety:
        “When I die, I’m taking New Year’s with me.”
        On new year’s eve I post the Ellery Queen episode with Guy Lombardo playing himself….and Auld Lang Syne.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          I’m looking forward to it, Johnny.

          • If I recall correctly the series was set to be in 1947 so the NYE episode (which was the first episode) was set on NYE 1946…which would be ten days or so after I came upon the scene in real life. Why am I talking about how ancient I am? Enough of this!

    • Marty

      Or BS with BS.

    • Larry Kelly

      Per the flood of commercials Griffin and Coop are now doing about “full mouth kissing” your assumption is correct… and yuck!

  • Mitch Alan

    Did anyone catch Abby Huntsman anchoring the 9:00 AM FNC show? Hard to understand why she was hired in the first place. What exactly does a rookie anchor add to the channel? Lots of on the job training for her, as she is not very polished.

    • sparty

      She’s conservative and she’s hot. What else does she need?

      • Mitch Alan

        Someone who can speak like a professional journalist. She isn’t conservative, more like her dad than anything else.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          On one hand you have who knows who, and on the other you have nepotism.

    • Larry Kelly

      FOX has been using her as a reporter. She’s actually pretty good.

    • Fox News Fan

      Abby Huntsman is an absolute joke. FNC has made some very questionable hires lately. Some that really make you scratch your head.

      She’s a RINO for sure…

      • In what way is she an absolute joke? Was it something she said yesterday? Today?

        • Mitch Alan

          She is not ready for prime time. She talks over the other guests or reporters with rather inane comments. She belongs on the One America Network, not Fox News or even FBN.

          • Cecelia

            I haven’t seen her, but assumed she got some professional chops from having been on MSNBC.

  • Michael T

    Re: Elisabeth Hasselbeck signs off
    Hope for her sake that this was truly a voluntary departure after only two years on the job.

    But color me skeptical. (ducking to avoid darts coming my way)

    Especially with the yearly Nielsen report yesterday that F&F’s demo ratings have really suffered.

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/as-2016-approaches-cnns-new-day-is-doing-better-than-you-may-know/

    If she doesn’t get hired by another show – cable or podcast – in the next few months, I think all of us skeptics should accept that more than likely it was voluntary after all.

    “Don, it’s gonna take a lot more for me to get upset at a woman who enabled a guy who turned the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor,”
    And then Lemon cut the segment short.
