    RE: Megyn Kelly link
    I don’t see Putin sitting down for a 1 on 1 interview with Megyn Kelly. Putin in thick Russian accent: “She had blood coming out of her wherever”.

    Her confirmed “big get” is Erin Andrews. Really???? Wasn’t that peeping tom lawsuit 3 or 4 years ago?

  • Larry Kelly

    Megyn Kelly’s prime-time debut set for June 4. “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” will have a limited run over the summer. I personally was more excited to have seen the return of Log Lady last night. May the actress who played her rest in peace.

  • Larry Kelly

    “You MUST be kidding, right?” Harris-Perry wrote in an email. “Where is the part where she systematically fired, dismissed and gaslit black folk in national media while hiding behind the white boys at MSNBC?”
    She has a point.

    • Saintsfan720

      Safe to say that MHP is a far left zealot. But, she is intelligent, passionate and makes can’t miss TV. Has anyone forgotten the tampon earrings? With Beckel out, maybe she and her agent should consider requesting an audition for “The Five” . Why not? 😉

    • Cecelia

      Should it be gaslit or gaslighted?

      • Larry Kelly

        I honestly don’t know what that means. Did Griffin try to hook a propane tank to her?

          It’s from the Ingrid Bergman movie Gaslight.

  • LenInFlux

    Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t get the theory that if Fox’s viewership is down that the people who have stopped watching Fox (for whatever reason) will shift to watching MSNBC or CNN. It makes no sense that a person who used to be a loyal O’Reilly viewer would turn to Chris Hayes.

    • sky303

      I think it’s actually an increase of audience to MSNBC and CNN not a fox drop
      on may 19th 2016 8pmet on FNC in the demo was 477,000, on may 18th 2017 : 8pmet 470,000 demo while msnbc on those dates was at 223,000 and 506,000 respectively, CNN 321,000 vs 546,000.

      With total audience FNC May 19th 2016 at 8pmet 2,930,000 vs 2,658,000 on May 18 2017
      while CNN was at 924,000 vs 1,574,000 respectively
      msnbc 773,00 vs 2,054.000

      FNC has stayed stable in ratings … it’s the other channels adding people which FNC might not be doing.

    • Larry Kelly

      I think it is a function of more disgruntled liberals watching.

    Re: Zucker play

    There’s is no way that this was an inadvertent mistake on CNN’s part in their misrepresentation of a subset set of statistics (how FNC treated the particular subject of Trump’s fitness for office) as being the overall conclusive stats of how the media treats Trump in all aspects of their coverage.

    What a bunch of liars.

  • Mitch Alan

    Fox News finished third last week in the demo,, MSNBC was first. I hope the Murdoch boys gave themselves a nice pay increase.

    Frankly, a lot of the programming on FNC is basically unwatchable.

  • J.J.

    I’m guessing CNN and MSNBC execs are secretly donating to the Trump 2020 campaign.
    Trump is making left leaning cable news ratings great again.

    5 zings Trump

    19 dead in England. IRA?

    • GATXER

      It shocks me that hours into this MSNBC and CNN are using 2 of their most partisan hosts……of course the stooges are complaining…….oh wait they actually said “Rachel Maddow’s doing an exceptional job covering this.”……funny how that never works with head racist Ice with Fox News………I mean MSNBC doesn’t really have any non partisan reporters left ……..but CNN joking with Anderson on right?

      • GATXER

        Shame Fox put on SH….but since CNN put on Don (did the plane go into a black hole?)Lemon……only the Disgraced Racist stooges could complain…and of course they are………I get Shep was on the air both live and internet for hours but I wish they gone another direction.

      The IRA stopped blowing up things quite awhile ago. Probably a Rugby Union fan protesting Rugby League playing games in Manchester.

      • Cecelia

        Rugby is certainly not a “religion of peace”.

        • Larry Kelly

          Used to go to all of Purdue’s rugby games. They were right after the Saturday college football ones. We few fans watching were appreciated by the players. Had a big tub of oranges injected with vodka they shared with us. Totally unsupervised by the college as best I could tell. One of my favorite memories from the good ol’ days.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            It was a club sport, along with lacrosse.

          • Larry Kelly

            Purdue had an all-american linebacker, Chuck Kyle, who I believe broke his collarbone bone moonlighting on the rugby team. A sport close to war.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            The indians called lacrosse “The little brother of war.”

      • Larry Kelly

        Salman Abed. Sounds Irish to me. Might be a lone o’wolf though.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          O’ Sama always sounded Irish to me.

      Monica needs a new shrink.

    • Cecelia

      They are ever the good little fascists. They know what to say and what not to say in order to stay employable and on invitation lists.
      MSNBC yakked it up about her scandal from daylight to dawn. Endless conjectures from Geraldo’s Clintonite crap to Chris Mathews days of blasting Bill and Hill before he got the memo.
      I was there watching.

  • Mitch Alan

    Shep Smith putting out his liberal talking points, not Islamic Terrorism in Manchester bombing today. Probably a “lone wolf”, not Islam, then gets into a heated argument with James Woolsey, former CIA director for praising Trump’s war on Radical Islam.

    I am looking for a new news source.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Islamic “lone wolves” are a common form of terrorism. The putz has been around long enough to know that. If not, he needs to join Beckel in the unemployment line.

  • FNC LIVE all night:

    11pm @ShepNewsTeam + SkyNews
    12mid @tracegallagher
    1am @kellywrightnews + @ArthelNeville
    4am @HeatherChilders
    Heather Childers scheduled for 4am to 6am, but likely Fox & Friends will begin an hour early at 5am.

    We lost Bill O’Reiley but now are still stuck with Bernie Goldberg? Sad. Oh well, he is popular with the Geritol crowd.
