  • Monday’s numbers: Bill O’Reilly-Tucker Carlson-Sean Hannity 1-2-3.
  • CNN hires Oliver Darcy as media writer.  Flashback: The story is bogus.
  • Douglas Brinkley at Virginia Tech.  Big Ed Schultz yammers about CNN.
  • Sunday showdown: MediaBuzz beats Reliable Sources.  Weekend numbers.
  • Fox News hires first female CFO.  As boycott spreads, O’Ratings skyrocket.
  • O’Reilly’s fate seen as litmus test for FNC’s future. Today’s Wemple O’Whine.
  • Tucker videos:   on Putin; on the massacre in Egypt.
  • J.J.

    Good on Piers for speaking up about the massacre of Christians in Egypt.
    Is it just me or has he become more sane since getting canned by CNN?

  • Saintsfan720

    Ratings question: any numbers for “Red Eye” and their finale Friday night?

    • Overnight ratings (midnight to 6am) usually aren’t published regularly. I’ll see if I can find out anything though I’m not optimistic about being successful.

  • Larry Kelly

    Rumor has it when the Russians take over Nicaragua, they are putting Big Ed Schultz in charge.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      They’ve subcontracted the place out to Cuber.

    What will get me to change a cable news channel faster than anything:
    1) news story is presented
    2) anchor introduces a liberal and a conservative flack — likely as not, I’ve never seen before
    3) they each spit out talking points and argue unpleasantly
    4) click

    • Mitch Alan

      Marie Harf gets an instant remote click.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        The name “Harf” sounds like a doog with a harelip.

  • Minnesota Nice

    Another site is obsessed with O’Reilly commercials details, I wonder if their source is from a FNC competitor.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Let’s just say, “This. Is. CNN.”

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 litmus test
    4 is bogus
    3 first female CFO
    2 yammers about CNN
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 As boycott spreads, O’Ratings skyrocket.

  • Larry Kelly

    Charles K., “Russia lies every day and twice on Sunday.”

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      “You ever see a commie take a drink of water?”

  • Larry Kelly

    I knew what Spicer was getting at with his “Hitler never used gas” comment. With all the Trump-Hitler references these days, the outrage seems ginned up.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Most people with a functioning brain knew what he meant. He meant that Adolf never used it in combat.

  • J.J.

    If he is not being made to go on vacation by Fox, big mistake by O’reilly to take time off.
    Fight through it, win in ratings, make them keep you.

    Easier to fire a guy away from the office, not winning in the ratings nightly.

    • Michael T

      Is O’Reilly taking some time off?

      I couldn’t find anything in any of Johnny’s “Tuesday Links and Open Thread.”
