      From the debris and mud, I wonder if that had been a burn area earlier?

  • In spite of Bill Maher’s jabs at Bill O’Reilly (i.e. joking that O’Reilly is with the KKK when Prof. Gates said he’s a clansman), I enjoyed last night’s episode of Finding Your Roots that featured the two Bills and Soledad O’Brien. I’m even going to watch next week’s episode with three actors. Maher shares a birthday with my late great-grandfather–January 20.

    • Thanks for reminding me of this. With all the SotU hoopla I’d forgotten about it.

    Seeing Jackie Kucinich on Happening Now, I can say that Dennis the Menace certainly did well in the daughter department.

  • Larry Kelly

    Charlie Rose this morning, “my close and dear friend, Bill O’Reilly”.

    • If that ever gets out it will be good for at least an hour of name-calling on twitter.

  • Megyn Kelly named by David Zurawik the best debate moderator on television.

    That’ll get some harrumphing in certain quarters, unless they bury it entirely.

    • Marty

      Hear hear!

      • I tweeted the cable news names on both the best and worst lists. Only one complained that I did it to spread ‘negative’ information about him: Jake Tapper. His skin is thinner than a flea’s wing.

        • Marty

          Hmmm…. that surprises me.

        • Larry Kelly

          Oh, I’ve learned that many a time.

      I can see Trump’s face turning red as a tomato at that. Her intelligence and beauty really upsets him.

  • So long Al Jazeera America. I read all about the fine journalists who will be out of a job, and that’s true for some. But I shed no tears for David Shuster, a fraud who supports government censorship of news. He’s getting a taste of his own medicine now, only AJAM is not being shut down by the government as he advocated for Fox News, but by the supply and demand of the free market. Enjoy your retirement in obscurity David Shuster, fraud and liar.

      I will say I watched the channel along with all the other news channels it was nice alternative to when CNN gets annoying , and back when MSNBC was leaning forward all day, and when I don’t wanna watch some shows on FNC. , and it was nice seeing John Seignethaler back on TV. Shuster always seemed to come off as smug (more at MSNBC than at AJAM though)

    • Nope it’s in there because you spotted it. I was just about to thank you for doing so. 😉

    Trillary Clinton™ @D2_Derpinator Tweet just a while ago:

    PEYTON MANNING:

    *Nationwide Jingle*

    “Al-Jazeera’s shutting down.”

  • Larry Kelly

    Mr. dad ran into the same proble Mr. Concha points out about brand names when the Kelly Delli was selling Mother Dogturd’s Potato Salad.

  • Larry Kelly

    Last October 50 journalists at AJAM voted to unionize in face of objections by management. A couple month’s latter… well, you decide.

      Also I think the Oil prices thing is getting to their owners (the Qtar government ) and they had to cut something ….

      • Larry Kelly

        Probably so, since they weren’t getting any return on their AJAM huge investment. The DOG CHANNEL gets better ratings I hear, and that don’t even have thumbs to work the remote.

        • sky303

          A lot of AJAM programs had un countable ratings meaning they were that low.

    I got 80% of the benefits of the Willow Curve by wrapping myself in the lights when I took the Christmas Tree down.

  • GATXER

    Boy those twitter stooges sure do think everybody at Fox News should comment on former MSNBC employee Ann Coulter twitter comments……….put on those #bigboypants and realize its NOT going to happen……..Fox News doesn’t take programing advice from people who don’t even understand how TV works.

    • Is that what they’re yammering about tonight? That’s an interesting about face. I recall when they were dismissing Ann Coulter as irrelevant.

        I saw that Moe was once again showing his great lack of knowledge of all things military. Not that that keeps him from mouthing off on the subject.
