  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    I have said it before, and I will say it again; Dana Perino is a national treasure.

    • Larry Kelly

      Punitive damages to anyone says otherwise.

      • Son of Blackflon

        Yes!!

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Dadflon should sue Momflon for punitive damages. There is no way Sonny came from his loins.

    • Cecelia

      Dana was raised by folks who taught her that integrity and credibility are a continual work in progress.

      She was taught to tell the truth, that character isn’t a social status, talent, or genetic asset, and to always…always…always make her bed.

      She’s good people.

    • Son of Blackflon

      She could sue for punitive damages

  • gcblues

    remember i said Hannity will be Glen Becked a while back. i want to be right at least one time, so remember, ok?

    • Cecelia

      Keep hope alive.

        Safest place in my house. #biohazard

  • Re: “Factor video: Bernard Goldberg analyzes coverage of the Soros hack”: This was a bait-and-switch segment. The promoted topic was the Ryan Lochte et al story, but it was only briefly discussed before getting to the real topic: Soros.

  • Larry Kelly

    If only FTV Live could send the kids to bed without supper.

    • Cecelia

      Hannity is a tiresome zealot, but he has never copped to being a journalist, as claimed in this piece.

      He has categorically stated that he is not that.

      • Larry Kelly

        TRUE
        However, Stelter has made such pretentious claims:
        Critic
        Media analyst
        Reporter
        Journalist
        Breath mint
        Floor wax
        Egg sucking dog

        • Grandpa D

          “Floor wax” — Dessert Topping

        • Cecelia

          Insightful observer.

        • Less filling.

          • Larry Kelly

            AND, he makes snow cones for the children.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Coprophagic skunk.

      • That struck me too when I read it. Apparently the author knows very little about Hannity and makes up what he doesn’t know. If there’s anything Hannity has been consistent about it’s saying ‘I don’t pretend to be a journalist’.

      • sky303

        I don’t like either of them.. but I agree he’s never said he was a journalist , hence the whole opinion radio show thing he has.

  • LenInFlux

    That ad hyping Morning Joe is a joke – both of them were kissing Trump’s rear end for months. And all throughout the primaries they were busy reminding their audience that they were one of very few who predicted Trump would win because he knew what he was doing. Now they are imploring Republicans to repudiate the guy as if he didn’t start saying controversial stuff until after the Primaries were over.

  • homemaker

    I hope The Hill is thinking everyday “what a great hire Joe Concha was”.

    I enjoy every article even if I don’t agree with every point made.

    • Joe Concha

      Boss… about that raise… I’d like you to read this.

  • sky303

    On the Morning Joe ad : I am watching a different ad than they did ,because it doesn’t really look like anything but pictures of them talking with famous people with words about how they are firebrands (ha ha ha ha) and holding the powerful accountable …watch them in the morning blah blah… not that they are against any candidates.

    1 Click-bait: Mediaite’s lying headline.

  • sparty

    Anna will be sorely missed but I’m happy for her and wish her well.

  • Some unkind, disparaging comments about Anna on twitter tonight. From people who’ve never watched her host a single show, naturally. Knowledge would just cramp their style.

    • Larry Kelly

      May they wake up to find a wombat in their pajamas.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Or a Tazmanian devil.

    • GATXER

      FYI: the dry drunk claims after he called you a sad person:

      “The perv who ignored the Ailes story except for articles that cast doubt on the women. Yeah.”

      Like I’ve said they not only see a Fox News in their heads that doesn’t exist but the see a J$ site they are obsessed with that also appears only in their poor disgraced heads. You linked to both sides and anyone who reads this site knows that.

      Im sure there will soon be a scary black man on TV they can obsess over so it will soon pass.

      • He lies like a rug.

        • GATXER

          Well the frozen one did finally delete the FAKE tweet from a Parody Trump account….so he’s been thinking REAL hard today.

          Oops…spoke too soon its still there…you would think even a disgraced “writer” would post a notice it was a FAKE RT from a parody account…….but he’s a newhound after all.

          • Larry Kelly

            AND a Twitter stooge. The moral high ground of the bizarro planet.

  • Larry Kelly

    SPECIAL REPORT PANEL of Lisa Boothe, Karen Tumulty, and Charles was a nice mix. Knowledgeable, smart, funny all.

    • Larry Kelly

      You can say that again.

      • Larry Kelly

        Shut up.

        • Larry Kelly

          YOU shut up!

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            OK, Larry. Stop fighting with Larry before we have to call the cops.

          • Larry Kelly

            He started it.

    • Grandpa D

      Johnny should do something about the echo.

  • GATXER

    You know I said that week that I’m avoiding comments sections on most sites nowadays….I try to read Concha’s work when I see it linked here…..but while he gets more traffic at the HILL the comments are worse than mediaite…….which I wouldn’t have believed.

    His work has improved IMHO….I don’t agree with some of it……but I like stuff that makes me think.

    That said I made the mistake of reading comments about the poor CNN-EX-FOX producer who died in Spain this week…………some people are just sick.
