    It is interesting how Martha still considers herself a temporary host at 7, and Shannon Bream still says she’s filling in for Martha. Shannon covered the Supreme Court pick, but that’s something she could still do as a host. I don’t see how Martha moves from 7 or Shannon moves from 9 a.m. For that matter, I wonder why Fox hasn’t named Heather Nauert the host of the 2 p.m. show.

    • Mitch Alan

      Martha’s show is scheduled for only the first 100 days. I still would like to see Trish Regan given a tryout though Martha is doing an acceptable job.

      • sparty

        But if Martha’s ratings are great why would they bounce her?

        • Mitch Alan

          The point is to give Trish a chance, I think she would get higher ratings, she certainly has a livelier personality.

          • sparty

            One thing working against The Dish is she reportedly was Ailes’ choice to replace Megyn.

    • Lurker

      Someone suggested to hire Tomi Lahren & give her the slot. I agree

      • sparty

        The last time FNC did that, Alisyn Camerota went to CNN when Ailes brought in Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Lahren is younger and a lot less established. I don’t think the FNC women would stand for such a move.

        • Lurker

          She has a feisty personality sorta like Megyn

          Martha is too boring, I can’t watch 1 hour of her show, actually I haven’t even tuned into her show lol

          • sparty

            She’s more like Hannity than Megyn.

          • Lurker

            Does she look more like Megyn or Hannity? 😜 🤣 😝

      • sky303

        If they were going to get an opinion host, I think they would go from inside like Perino or Kimberly for example.

        • Lurker

          I would pick Kimberly or Trish, Sandra Smith is good too

          Dana is a stuttering bore

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Dana is far from boring. She is a national treasure.

          • gcblues

            as is stirewalt. what amazes me is i see nothing in her background that exposed her to the study of Classical Rhetoric yet she conceptualizes communication and its consequences as well as anyone i have ever listened to other than Dominic LaRusso. Not something you are born with.

      • TheMightyINB

        Tonight needs some life experience first.

        Nobody wants to listen to a perpetually angry 20-something.

    • sky303

      Well I don’t think they have settled on if the show permanent or not since it’s still called first 100 Days; it might like her test.

  • sky303

    If Only CNN would resist going off the rails… or get a new conductor that’s not Zucker.

  • GATXER

    Aren’t people who are complaining about how Trump is treating CNN the same disgraced fools who thought Obama doing the exact same thing to Fox News was great but didnt go far enough?

    Why yes they are…..hypocrites.
    #laughingstocks

  • GATXER

    Wow…..the new Quinnipiac University.poll says that 60% of Independent voters dont think the media is honest…..thats gotta hurt.

    • gcblues

      better question. who are the 40% and what are they smoking?

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I think that they are drinking their own bath water.

        • gcblues

          you should have been a physician not a pilot. So you never responded. i know you took psyche exams in order to sit in the left seat of uncle sam’s rides, he does like them bent. would the Donald pass?

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I think that Trump would pass. I have seen some serious whack jobs that were certified under the Personnel Reliability Program.

          • gcblues

            ty for an honest answer even if it scares the (&*^)&^ out of me.

      • Michael T

        I found it interesting (even counter intuitive) that the more educated (college degree) were more likely (50%) to answer YES to the question, “Do you think that most members of the news media are honest?”

        Same was true of the older you get. Of those 65+ it was 50% who said YES.

        I was a tad bit surprised — especially at the second group where I thought older voters might be less trusting.

        • gcblues

          Publik skool

  • Lurker

    Katy Tur is a STAR? Says, who?

    Oh, The Washington Post, nevermind 😜 🤣 😝

  • carolr527

    On The Five Greg Gutfeld said that Red Eye’s Andy Levy knows Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both went to Columbia University and launched a newspaper there. Gutfeld joked that Andy must feel so terrible about himself because his classmate was nominated for the Supreme Court and he, Andy, is just the ombudsman for RE! BTW, Andy will be on Tucker’s show this evening.

    1 What’s in store for the most watched female in all cable news?

  • GordonGekko

    Maratha is smart and hot, they will keep her at 7p if she continues like this.

  • IN the wake of violence at Berkeley to shut down a speech from a gay Jewish Brit, we get this:

    “FOX getting the Trump supporters are victims of intolerant liberals script ready after alt-right goon has to cancel speech.”

    Now who would be totalitarian enough to support censorship by violence? (It’s getting cold in here.)

    • GATXER

      I thought the back peddling was even better:

      “Of course I don’t condone the violence however it may not be a good idea to book an alt-right Trumper to speak there.”

      1st Berkeley students invited him………and I guess the disgraced racist is now against people of color giving speeches anywhere in the south……OH wait…..that sound right already.

      • Yeah, just invite speakers the rioters like. Problem solved!

        Beam me up!

      • I got threatened for RTing the tweet I quoted above. Guess who the Cyber bully who threatened me was. Three guesses and the first two don’t count.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani
          • And you didn’t even need to phone a friend.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Moe is easy to pick out. He lives to boss people around. I figured out long ago that it must really suck to be Joe Remi. To be that full of hate and bitterness has to eat at his insides.

          • GATXER

            beat me by that much.

        • GATXER

          Without looking….i’m betting MOE…who has the power of grayskull?

          He lives in some fantasy land where he’s the twitter police or something…..I guess between drinks or something. Twitter will laugh at him…..any wonder he’s banned at every media site I visit. His big thing is to tell other people what they are allowed to talk about on other people’s blogs.

          • It’s really bizarre. I RT’d one tweet, and he’s all I’m Reporting You to Support. For RTing a tweet, and what’s more, not even his tweet. It’s like I need his permission to RT a tweet that he didn’t even send because he’s mentioned in it. That makes it ‘targeted harassment’. One tweet! No I’m not making this up, even if it does sound like something from Bizarro Planet.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I’d tell him to report it to Al Gore. After all, he did claim to invent the internet.

            I went over and looked at it. It’s nice to know that patients at State Hospitals are online.

          • Cecelia

            Guess it’s better than threatening your life and rioting and setting fire to stuff.

            Liberals have lost their minds.
