    Can’t say i’m displeased by the resignation of Flynn as National Security Adviser. Not over the press ginned up Russian stuff but by his apparent misleading of Pence. With that kind of bad judgment best he is gone. I had always been uneasy about him. Reminded me a bit too much like the fictional U.S. Air Force General, Jack Ripper.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Jack D. Ripper was simply misunderstood.

      • Larry Kelly

        well, that and the fluorine.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Loss of essence. Viagra and the like hadn’t been invented, so his only choice was to start WW III.

  • Larry Kelly

    MSNBC, NBC, and CNN could not be more hacked at the Daily Caller not listening to their whispers. If the question had been asked, Flynn would have been fired by now.

    • GATXER

      Flynn was gone the second he lied to the VP and they found out…..can’t think of a reason they would let him stay after that.

      Now….which news network picks him up?

      • Larry Kelly

        Maybe Ed Schultz’s?

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        CNN. What’s one more liar?

  • Larry Kelly

    I turned CNN’s HISTORY OF COMEDY off after about twenty minutes. Can see what the left loved it as it made Lenny Bruce into some kind of hero. To me he wasn’t at all funny and poisoned comedy no less than he poisoned himself.

    • Cecelia

      There could never be a Lenny Bruce today.

      The ‘avant garde’, as well as scary morons such as that Berkley teacher on Tucker last night, would make sure he/she disappeared one way or another.

      • Larry Kelly

        i’m sure he would be peppering Trump with obscenity. He would thrive.

        • Cecelia

          No, Bruce was counter-culture. He went after the shibboleths of the establishment.

          Artists, the media, intelligentsia, corporatists, sophisticates and wannabes, now all march in lockstep in our Tower of Babel world.

          Today’s Lenny Bruce is us.

          • Larry Kelly

            Well then I stand corrected. The CNN special led one to believe his biggest foe was religion and proponents of obscenity censorship. The media of that period is so different from today’s media, he might find little with which to object.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            He would find plenty to object to. The utter hypocracy, for one thing.

    • GATXER

      I saw part of that………I knew the name but had no real idea who Lenny Bruce really was.

  • Great column by Jonah Goldberg.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Indeed.

  • What is causing the Reliable Sources winning streak? Is it the option of Trump bashers over Trump administrators?

    • Larry Kelly

      SNL and Stephen Colbert are suddenly thriving so I imagine Democrats strongly motivated to find relief from the pain of electoral loss are a motivated audience.

    • Mitch Alan

      Media Buzz is just a boring show, endless panels with the usual tired talking heads. I nominate Joe Concha to replace Howie Kurtz as host.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I second. Or Lily Langtry. I’m sweet on her.

    • GATXER

      I watched RS for two weeks…..it’s barely a media critic show anymore………..hard to compare. It’s all trump and reporters talking about Trump……with a little Fox News bashing thrown in.

      I dont care for judge Jeanine shows…………because IMHO it stopped being a legal show and does more politics now………..although I admit I only read about it these days…..haven’t watched since the last big trial she covered.

      I wish we had a legal show that covered court news all over the country again.

      • Larry Kelly

        I watched her talk about the 9th Circuit Court. First time I ever listened for longer than a few minutes. She was actually impressive.

  • Larry Kelly

    Hard to beat the walking dead.

  • Mitch Alan

    When I see Marie Harf’s face, I immediately turn the channel. Good hire, Fox News! Why don’t you hire Tomi Lahren instead, dummies?

    • TheMightyINB

      Why must you always demand an echo chamber?!

  • GATXER

    OK….in fairness….I have about 15 Trucker shows on my dvr I haven’t watched yet…..that said…..where has this Trucker been?

    Ive watched him off and on when he was with CNN and MSNBC and I seen a few clips of him on F7F…..but this is like a whole new guy. It’s like somebody said…….say what ever you want. I’m loving it. Ive learned something new from every show.

    Normally I dont watch Opinion shows but his is great. But Can it last?

    • Larry Kelly

      The guests are the stars and they are quite the variety. So maybe?

    • Cecelia

      Watch tonight’s.

      It is sweet, sweet,sweet.

      • GATXER

        I’m not watching them in any real order ………dvr tonight I have 22 now……per your req…I make it at the top of my list.

      • Michael T

        Tucker Carlson vs Erik Wemple

        Hmmm.

        Interesting exchanges. I would have preferred less talk about the obscure issue of the “paid propaganda from the Russian government,” which is pretty low on the list of what Mr. Wemple usually writes about. Most viewers of Tucker’s show probably never heard of these low profile inserts.

        But I’m not in his target audience. I’m sure it does very well in the ratings with an audience more aligned with his views…and all things considered, isn’t that what really counts?

        As someone who puts a strong emphasis on passion and energy in primetime cable news opinion shows Mr. Carlson seldom disappoints.

    It bothered me when I heard Trump’s phone calls to world leaders were being leaked to the press. Didn’t seem to bother the press who was doing it.

  • Larry Kelly

    Would Carl’s kid still have a job if he had said such a thing about the former first lady?

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      They should fire the little SOB. My apologies to his mother, but the kid is a worthless creep.

    • Isn’t his Dad with CNN and a favorite on Reliable Sources? That would pretty much guarantee Stelter won’t cover the story.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I never watch CNN. It rots the brain. And they should replace Stelter with a jimp.
