  • Larry Kelly

    CNN fires injured journalists, discriminates against blacks, eats humans. Nice place lately.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      At least they’re not eating injured black journalists. So they’ve got that going for them.

      • Larry Kelly

        Roland Martin’s liver would have gone well with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

  • GATXER

    I guessing the Judges mistake was saying fox can report instead of my sources can report…….otherwise wouldn’t MSNBC have to fire Maddow for her Russia rants? The judge isn’t a reporter after all.

    I hope its not permanent I like the guy….don’t agree with him politically but he does have a sharp legal mind form what I can tell………hes usually right about what the outcome of cases will be.

    • Mitch

      Replace him with Tomi Lahren.

      • TheMightyINB

        That would be a good trade.

        One has decades of experience in law… and the other is mildly attractive. But hey, she loooooves Trump, so what else is needed?!

        /sarc

        • Lurker

          Mildly attractive is a understatement 😜 🤣 😝

          • TheMightyINB

            Meh. Big head, no figure.

          • Lurker

            Prettiest blonde out of all the blondes to me would be Kayleigh McEnany 😜 🤣 😝

      • GATXER

        Is she any kind of a lawyer? Fox Needs a good legal person.

  • GATXER

    Anybody know the rules for political ads and media people…..if I were Rep. Swallwells opponent Id be cutting a pretty good ad out of Tuckers show last night……I know Ive seen Journalist ask people not to use footage…….I know Chuck Todd did that last year……but do they legally have the right to stop them?

    • gcblues

      no

  • GATXER

    OK…….I fully predict disaster here…….I know North still does FBN but has he been on Fox News much i haven’t seen him in a while.
    Every time I see him….I’m reminded of Jags first season.

    • Larry Kelly

      I’m reminded of potted plants.

  • sparty

    Ainsley has a new picture book coming out in November 🙂

    http://simonandschusterpublishing.com/takeheartmychild/

  • Lurker

    Since FOX makes soooo much $$$, I think they will just payoff Andrea so she can just go away 🙁

    They already paid off Gretchen which was the worse, there was barely any evidence against Ailes & alot against Gretchen, with all those charming letters she sent to Ailes but Megyn coming foward probably sank Ailes for good & they also paid off Juliet Huddy, don’t know how believable that BOR incident was, seems like FOX bought it

  • Larry Kelly

    I would pay good money to watch David Brock as a Tucker guest,

    Axios AM: ‘David Brock will announce this morning: “American Bridge is calling on the U.S. Senate to hit the pause button on the Supreme Court nomination hearings until such time as the {FBI-Russia} investigation is complete … If the Judiciary Committee will not halt the hearings, Democrats should walk out and refuse further participation.”‘

  • Larry Kelly
  • Michael T

    Look everyone.

    The “mean girls” — also known as the Dollar Blog Tag Teamers – Gatxer, Cecelia, Nixon and Kelly are having a “piling on circle jerk” because I keep calling out a commenter making libelous accusations. Such fun in the sun. Let’s all grab an adult beverage and sing along.
    http://johnnydollar.us/20170320/monday-links-and-open-thread-94/#comment-3214745416

    Dang. I thought this was a blog about cable news. Not one to falsely accuse former commenters of being a racist.

    My bad.

    • Cecelia

      I say the site starts a pool on how long it will be before you circle around and delete that comment.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I prefer to call it “creatively edit.” He thinks everybody is too stupid to remember his earlier version, which is usually an insult.

        • Michael T

          Let’s be clear.

          With not a shred of evidence of ever editing to deceive.

          It’s just a baseless talking point folks.

        • GATXER

          Yea……the thing has edited most of his posts in this thread in the last 30 mins or so.

          • Michael T

            When you get to my age you’ll understand why.

            We can only hope some day you’ll do the same with some of your poorly written posts.

      • GATXER

        and still playing the victim……….still unable to get that we talk about cable news

        AND the people who cover it.

        He just cant accept anything bad said about the DRS™…..and yet just today he said this:

        https://twitter.com/sdmike1974/status/844250988676431872

        Always comes back to race with those people.

        and this:

        https://twitter.com/sdmike1974/status/844232779499896832

        Cant seem to tell people of color apart either.

        • Michael T

          Your childlike qualities of pettiness, name calling and repetition are endearing.

          But your reasoning, logic and analytical skills need some work…not to mention your writing skills.

          An example of your dysfunction is, during a discussion, if an issue has been fully explored and discussed to a point of resolution, it is not uncommon for you to return to old settled arguments. The notion of transitioning seems at times very foreign to you and difficult to achieve.

          • GATXER

            yea…sure. OK.

            Speaking of skills…..you figure out why you cant track how many thousands of visitors J$ site gets yet……it was really simple.

            You figure that out….took me @ 2 minutes…….and I might listen to you on my skills.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Cant seem to tell people of color apart either.

          Black, brown, yellow or red, we all look alike.

        • Michael T

          As long as you’re so obsessed with intruding on my Twitter conversations and collecting and sharing my tweets, here’s another one to add to you’re prized collection.
          https://twitter.com/sdmike1974/status/844427721035976704

          It’s free. No charge. Enjoy.

          You’re welcome.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        He will eventually explode in a matter that will make Spud’s classic look mild. Meanwhile, I have made my last reply to him. He simply wants the attention. I am not going to give it to him.

        • Michael T

          Explode?

          I am enjoying this.

          Back in August I was new to fending off a tag team. Now I feel quite comfortable arguing with the low hanging fruit here at J$P.

          Your side has my sympathy defending yourselves which is why you folks resort to petty issues like name calling, unwarranted ad hominems, baseless objections to comment editing and unprovable assertions about race.

          It’s difficult being handicapped by being in a rigid political right-wing bubble exacerbated by an inability to objectively evaluate Fox News and their talent.

        • GATXER

          Maybe I should do that also and just pretend he doesn’t exist…..its like talking to a wall………and hes always the victim here anyway….even though he feels the need to defend people who don’t even bother to post here. He attacks the site and the people who regularly post here…..uses fake screen names to device people from who he is and then lies that hes done that till busted by the sites owner….admits hes just doing it to enjoy upsetting normal people…….there’s a word for people like that on the internet……I think.

          Let him whine to himself.

          • Michael T

            Yeah, go off and pick backup on your obsessive hunt for people who only you thing are racists and more naked men to ad to your Twitter account, if that floats your boat.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Mabye he’s simply trying in vain to impress Jodie Foster or Jodi Arias.

        • Larry Kelly

          Good plan. No good comes from the alternatives.

          • Michael T

            Back to cable news is my mantra!!

            Johnny and Mike C. deserve it.

          • GATXER

            Yea im going to do it also…..his reply below is just vile…

            “Yeah, go off and pick backup on your hunt for racists and naked men if that floats your boat.”

            …….I’m going back to discussing cable news and the people who talk about cable news…like the DRS™ and real media critics…..let him talk to a wall………they should get along fine. If he wants to defend people….let him……..he so bad at it….I shouldn’t care.

          • Michael T

            Yay!!

            My strategy worked then. Sayonara.

            BTW, Sayonara is Japanese for ‘goodbye’ for those with a low level of education and maturity.

          • TheMightyINB

            Since when has the left concerned themselves with false accusations of racism?

            As Spencer Ackerman taught us in the Journolist scandal, that’s the strategy.

          • Michael T

            Millions of Americans disagree with the politics and rulings of Justice Thomas…as well as the other conservative justices.

            Does that make them racists? Of course not. That would be silly.

            A point I have been trying to make with Gatxer for what dates back to at least last August.

            Similarly, Richard — aka Iceman — disagrees with the politics and anchors siding with Trump — and criticizes Harris Faulkner. But also Maria Bartiromo and Melissa Francis, who fall in the same category of being news anchors who offer opinions — i.e., side with Trump. He’s tweeted the same about CNN’s Don Lemon at one point — perhaps during that phase when he was pro Trump.

            But again Gatxer wants to focus on Harris so he can introduce race and charges of racism. The truth is he simply ‘hates’ Iceman because he occasionally writes for NewsHounds.

          • TheMightyINB

            That’s not at all what I asked.

            The left is fine accusing people of racism, while knowing it’s untrue. It was a stated strategy.

            So why the whine now?

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            He loves to play the victim.

          • Michael T

            No. I just love toying with the low hanging fruit so locked into rigid thinking and sophomoric arguments.

            You and Gatxer with the confrontational TheMightyINB soon to join you who keep commenting about avoids to avoid my direct hits. Shall we block him? No, shall we ignore his comments? Shall we report him?

            Y’all are so confused you don’t know what to di next. You can’t find anything in recent history to criticize, so you, Gatxer and Cecelia raise petty issues about editing or make false accusations about a racial obsession. Both with no proof.

            Keep tryin’ — maybe you’ll score a win or two. Right now you’re getting your collective butts kicked not unlike your fearless leader Donald Trump (this week anyway).

          • GATXER

            He was a OK guy till he went completely nuts in the age of Trump.

            I guess if you hang around with a Racist long enough the crazy has to get to you.
            Personally I cant stop laughing at him…..he almost as funny as the Disgraced Racist stooge ICE.

          • Michael T

            Admit it, you’d be lost without a foil.

            You keep coming back for more. Unfortunatley you always go away saying either “I’m going to start ignoring his comments” or “I’m going to bed” clearly implying you can’t take it anymore. Ha ha!

            #WINNING

          • Michael T

            “That’s not at all what I asked.”

            I was getting you back on track about the issue at hand after you ventured off into some rabbit hole about Spencer Ackerman who was never mentioned.

            Attempts to deflect don’t work with me.

          • Larry Kelly

            As the mother of all stooges once revealed, “whatever it takes”.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That vulgar comment of his would seem to strike right at the heart of the rules of this blog.

  • Michael T

    Who’s the attractive black lady seated behind Gorsuch? Doesn’t appear to be Stacey Dash or Rep. Mia Love.

    • TheMightyINB

      Why do you think it would only be one of those two women?

      • Michael T

        That’s an easy one.

        Because for me and many others those are the only — or the most publicized — conservative A-A women in recent memory that looked anywhere close to what this attractive lady looked like.

        I know you are probably looking for a racial or anti black conservative motive like Gatxer who finds one under every rock.

        But the truth is I had no hidden agenda other wondering why she had the primo seat and who she was.

        • TheMightyINB

          But if you knew it wasn’t them, why mention them at all?

          • Michael T

            Don’t mean to be rude, but read my comment again…more carefully this time.

            In the SECOND sentence I wrote, “Doesn’t appear to be…”

            TRANSLATION: May or may not be.

            Capiche?

      • GATXER

        BTW: ignore the link given by haters…….she there for one reason…….she used to clerk for……wait for it……..Gorsuch…..somehow the haters link left out that fact.

        Now why would they leave that part out…….seem pretty important………and anybody who thinks she looks like Dash…….obviously cant tell one black woman from any other

        • Michael T

          “She was there for one reason…….she used to clerk for……wait for it……..Gorsuch.”

          Is that true?

          I heard she was currently working in the White House legislative affairs unit…and just a little over 2 yrs ago she was earning less than $38K/year as a Senate Cloakroom Assistant.

          While it’s decent and notable for you to defend her as NOT a “low-level” assistant — we can disagree on that point. Although, perhaps there was a better way for me to characterize a Senate Cloakroom Assistant.

          Please don’t take this as personal. I am assessing your comment and have no issue with you personally…making thar comment. I make plenty of mistakes and have no right to call the kettle black.

          We have a good streak going here at J$P – going on 2 full days. I don’t want to spoil it.

          You and I both like to try and keep the record accurate. I’m sure Johnny appreciates it — as long as we don’t bicker.

      • GATXER
  • Michael T

    I’m sometimes mildly entertained by how politicians spin things…or argue their side if you will…regardless of party.

    The latest is from Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), “If the Freedom Caucus kills this bill they would have voted to continue Obamacare, which as the President pointed out — in 2018 we will probably lose the House and the Senate.”

    Then on the other side you also have Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), a former Trump surrogate who said he is worried undocumented immigrants would take advantage of the GOP plan.

  • Larry Kelly

    I watched a little of the Gorsuch confirmation hearing. The only thing I saw not mainstream were Senators. Outclassed shamefully.

  • Larry Kelly

    Supreme hearings not what they used to be. No Long Dong Silvers. I had to tell Bella no one was getting Borked.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Don’t mention to her the hair and the Coke can. She’ll hide under the bed.

    Judge Nap let go by Fox News, sad day!

    • Michael T

      Where did you read that he was “let go”?

      The best I could find with Google was an “indefinite suspension.”

  • GATXER

    You know I wish the Disgraced Racist stooges like Ice would make up their minds about Fox News being TrumpTV………you cant call Fox TrumpTV and then celebrate when Fox News reports bad news about Trump………it cant be both.

    http://www.newshounds.us/you_know_it_s_bad_trump_chris_wallace_praises_democrats_house_intelligence_hearing_032017

    Its like they dont really watch Fox News so we dont have to or something.

    • I can’t see the tweets because Ice courageously blocked me months ago, but after years of the newspoodles I know their tricks pretty well.

      • GATXER

        Best I can do……I don’t think the word propaganda is in the famous Newshound “writers” dictionary.

        • As I thought. It’s TrumpTV except when it isn’t TrumpTV, after which it goes back to being TrumpTV again. How gullible are the lemmings who follow this stuff and don’t realize how the cherry-picking is used to smear people like Harris or Bret Baier, or why it gets shoved aside for the occasional “Even Fox News says…” post? They’re certainly not more sophisticated liars than they were a decade ago, so the readers must be exponentially dumber.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I am certain that Bella is more behaved than these mutts. And much smarter.

            She has a certain dignity that surprises people when I reveal she’s my doog.

      • Larry Kelly

        I don’t need to see them. As with the TV soap operas, you could watch once a year and find nothing changes. Kind of like the trolls that visit us. Just a variation on a theme of stoogini. Lying, cheating, backstabbing outliers of the liberal fringe.
