    Fox does have a great bullpen of reporters/anchors to replace Jenna: Heather Childers, Arthel Neville, Elizabeth Prann, Patricia Stark, Julie Banderas, Jackie Ibanez, etc. As I’ve rambled here before, be patient in picking someone. They have all summer.

    • Larry Kelly

      Drop down a tier and the bench is strong.

      • Saintsfan720

        Julie, Arthel, Heather, and Patti Ann Browne are the most experienced anchors they have on the “bench”. None of these ladies would have any problems covering big or multiple breaking news stories. But, there are so many others as well that deserve a shot. Tough choice.

        • sparty

          If Heather Nauert had stayed it would be her.

        • Lurker

          Give it to PAB

          She deserves a permanent gig

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I agree. And I am unanimous in that.

    • Mitch Alan

      I would go with Kristin Fisher. Elizabeth Prann can barely handle what she is doing now.

      • sparty

        Kristin hasn’t paid her dues the way the others have. Heather has been the main fill-in on HN and she’s most deserving of a promotion from F&FF.

        • Presbyter

          HC definitely.

    • sparty

      Patricia Stark left some time ago.

      • Saintsfan720

        Did not realize that. I would see her during”Red Eye” and liked her. Since the cancellation, don’t know who’s on overnights now.

  • Larry Kelly

    Don’t blame Kathy, she made Cooper the man he is today.

  • Larry Kelly

    The shot Media Matters took at Hannity was so off the mark, he never opened the box with the purple heart.

  • Larry Kelly

    Here’s hoping HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher has the same crisis management consultant as Kathy Griffin.

  • Mitch Alan

    Murdoch didn’t attend Roger Ailes’ funeral. Rush and Sean Hannity were there as well as Ethel Kennedy, RFK’s widow. Dennis Kucinich was there, but Murdoch snubbed the funeral.
    Why?

    • homemaker

      Sounds like the family-mother & son-have no use for Rupert these days.

      • Mitch Alan

        Murdoch’s firing of Roger Ailes, Bill Shine, and Bill O’Reilly was nothing less than brutal and unprincipled. Or has Rupert simply gone senile and is now taking orders from his liberal sons?

        • Lurker

          Rupert is listening to his Sons

          • Mitch Alan

            Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly both made that old coot many tens of millions of dollars. How much did the Murdoch boys make him? Not a nickle.

    Hi. Sorry dude. Your blog is in a level 10 of being totally crapola. Miss Prissy. You mean Arthel Neville? I saw Arthel Neville’s picture on your website and I was on the internet for about an hour trying to find out the person’s name. Your dumb blog just goes on a tirade about Miss Prissy. And it didn’t say anything. So luckily I found out her name by going to Fox’s own website. I hope to God you are not what we have to look forward to as the alternative and good media.
    Johnny Dollar I like how your logo is basically the Fox news logo. What do you think about UN trucks driving around throughout the United States of America. You . Get back on your surf board. Get brain dead on laguna beach on LSD. Post modernism, materialism, agnosticism, atheism. Your blog fits the bill for all of them. And you can add crapism.You need to be toweled.Maybe you can get a good job on BET or on the next bad under siege movie. Do us a favor and don’t try to reinvent the wheel.

    • TheMightyINB

      Wow.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani
        • Minnesota Nice

          LOL.

          My initial thought was commercial where they said “This is your brain on drugs, any questions

          • Larry Kelly

            My continuing thought is “to whom belongs this sock puppet?”

      Mark, it’s impossible to argue with that.

  • Larry Kelly
    • Cecelia

      They’ll prattle out unconfirmed bullshite all night tonight on this action, but with Trump it’s “Are you sure those were Japanese planes over Pearl Harbor?”

      • homemaker

        Can’t find it right now but this morning I saw on Twitter either Andrea Mitchell or NBC News say they won’t broadcast Trump’s Twitter about the attack in London because the information was “unconfirmed”.
        Someone responded:you’ve been talking about anonymously sourced information for the last 2 weeks and you have no problem with broadcasting that!

        • Cecelia

          Exactly.

          They endlessly peddled the DOJ debunked claims about the Ferguson, Mo. cop and false claims about George Zimmerman’s actions before being confronted by Trayvon Martin.

          I don’t think Pres. Trump should tweet unconfirmed stuff either, but no institution in American life is supposed to be more zealous for the truth than the media, and no group of people is less so than these phonies.

  • carolr527

    My heart goes out to London. Praying that this madness ends.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      The only thing that will stop this madness is some well-placed mushroom clouds in the Middle East.

    • Larry Kelly

      Praying that the religion that fires the furnace cuts off the fuel.

  • Mitch Alan

    The religion of peace strikes again.

    Howie opens with three extremely lovely young women. Old or plain need not apply.

    • Cecelia

      The perk of hosting your own show.

      My husband would probably be interviewing underwear models.

      • Larry Kelly

        Howie was consistent as he closed the show with a fourth lady attractive enough to be a beaty queen… or a model of anything.

  • Larry Kelly

    Did Chrome Dome even comment on Ichabod Griffin? Maybe he wasn’t on today?

    • Cecelia

      Stelter was busy expressing disapproval over Trump using coordinated terrorist attacks to further his agenda against terrorists attacks, and tsking whatever Fox & Friends was airing about the incident.

  • Cecelia

      All you need is love. That and never letting them in.

      I watched the news magazine , it was alright I like the idea of a classic news magazine program – meaning it’s not focused on just crime stories like Dateline and 20/20 have become and what 48 hours is. But it wasn’t really bad, it’s 60 Minutes level of quality but that’s something else.
