    Betsy, “But don’t worry, CNN. You can count on Stelter — supposedly the network’s media watchdog — to carry your water.”

    LOL

    • Cecelia

      And the DNC’s.

      • Larry Kelly

        Just a short time ago, Project Veritas released over 100 hours of audio. Stelter said ten minutes later there was nothing in it.

        • Cecelia

          He’s a speed-listener.

          • Larry Kelly

            Yeah, took me over an hour.

          • fammus1

            Larry, every now and then You tickle my funny bone.

  • Cecelia

    That was a great Tucker last night, the ex-CIA operative was thoughtful, direct, with no hyperbole.

  • GATXER

    Shocked and saddened at the death of Alan Colmes…….great broadcaster.

    • Cecelia

      Oh, how sad! Ive always been fond of Alan. He was a straight shooter and so wonderfully crazy about his wife.

  • ojfl

    May the Lord receive Mr. Colmes in His arms. Rest in peace and comfort to the family.

  • Saintsfan720

    Am so sorry to hear of Alan Colmes’s passing. I remember listening to him (and disagreeing with him) on AM talk radio in the 80’s. His radio”graffiti” segments were funny. Liked him on Fox as well. Condolences to his family & friends.

  • Larry Kelly

    As if the Wemple whining wasn’t loud enough, John Podesta has joined The Washington Post as contributing columnist.

  • sky303

    That is sad and shocking news to hear about Alan Colmes.

  • Son of Rusty Shackleford

    I must admit I enjoyed Hannity & Colmes more than just Hannity by himself, even though I didn’t like Colmes’ politics. I remember once on April Fool’s Day after Hannity went solo Colmes opened the show doing a quick bit wearing a Mao hat and spouting some commie nonsense; it was an LOL moment. Fox loses Brenda Butner and Alan Colmes within four days of each other! Very sad. RIP Alan.

    • Mitch Alan

      I don’t recall Colmes ever appearing on Hannity’s show once he left it in 2009.

          Besides that?

      • sky303

        I think he’s been on there a few times I don’t watch Hannity really so I can’t count how many times but I know he’s been there a few times.

        • Mitch Alan

          Colmes would have been a good addition to The Five. For whatever reason, his tv career never recovered from being taken off H and C.

    • carolr527

      Wasn’t Alan Roger Ailes’ very first hire when he started FOX News?

  • Michael T

    Sad news about Alan.

    But also a reminder that if you, your friends or your relatives experience swelling in their neck or armpits, please see a doctor for a checkup. Swelling may also occur in the groin and abdomen.

    Lymphoma is in most cases very treatable.

    • carolr527

      RIP, Alan. My mom died of lymphoma. For three years she was fine, then it turned very aggressive and she was gone within weeks. My prayers for the Colmes’ family.

  • Larry Kelly

    CNN town hall: McCain/Graham. Trump should show up in the audience to heckle everybody.

  • Larry Kelly

    i’m guessing Veritas found the audio bomb in Al Capone’s vault.

    In 2014, Cable in the Classroom was entirely discontinued in the United State. Not sure what kids are offered as a source of current events. In my day, even grade schoolers were kept in the know:

      That brought back fond memories. I always looked forward to “My Weekly Reader.”

      Remember the Scholastic Book Sales? You’d order the books and they’d come in a few weeks.

        I bought my first book at one…….encylopedia Brown…….gave me a love for reading.
