      Bruce Wayne could have agreed to disagree with the murderers of his parents, but hatred channeled his energies on a more productive path.

  • J.J.

    I am not a Katy Tur fan at all, but I actually feel sorry for her. Why should she have to accept and embrace what her father did to himself. It was a selfish act with no consideration for his family.

    Bruce Jenner did the same thing to his kids, then gets mad that his youngest 2 daughters have difficulty accepting it.

    • Saintsfan720

      Katy Tur’s parent should not have aired their personal family issues publicly like this. Don’t like it at all. Sounds like it was a combination of hurt feelings and a political agenda.

      • Cecelia

        Sounds like Zooey Tur is a jerk in both genders.

    • Larry Kelly

      I want a gal, just like the gal, that transitioned from dear ol’ dad.

    • Cecelia

      Why would Tur’s transitioned mother make these very fraught dynamics public?

  • Mitch Alan

    Alex Jones is milking this situation like a cow. Free publicity galore. Megyn is also getting publicity but is damaging to her reputation, as Jones has taped everything. Mama didn’t raise no fool.

    • Joe Concha

      Familiar analysis 🙂

      • Mitch Alan

        Did you hear those tapes where Megyn is buttering up Alex Jones, tells him how great he is? lol

      • Larry Kelly

        I might have dreamt it.

      • Cecelia

        Nobody said that Jones is a good guy, and note that Megyn’s attempts to rectify criticism and explain herself caused Jones to go on the offensive.

        We don’t live in a world where networks don’t cowtow to pressure and journalists don’t start sweating over script.

        Those are the outside and inside forces that make journalism as fresh and informative as kabuki theater.

  • Saintsfan720

    I think the ladies of FNC are smart and gorgeous not matter what they wear. But, I can only imagine the reaction of some viewers on the show’s Facebook and Twitter pages the day the “Outnumbered” hosts all wear pants.

  • Larry Kelly

    Maybe Dana will stage a mock debate segment tonight with Jasper?

    • Larry Kelly

      No Jasper, but Mr. Concha on deck with a few things to say about the New York Times editorial board.

  • Larry Kelly

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

  • Larry Kelly

    On CBS THIS MORNING’s report on that poor father of the brain damaged North Korean released son, did they report the dad’s anger at President Obama expressed yesterday? Did the doog make me eggs benedict for breakfast?

  • carolr527

    Why did FOX lose Dr. Siegel and Dr. Samadi? I would have linked their input on Steve Scalise’s condition.

    • I’ve seen Dr Siegel maybe a half-dozen times over the last day or two on Fox discussing his condition.

      • carolr527

        Good to hear – I guess I missed him.

        • Larry Kelly

          “Dr. Howard, Dr. Siegel, Dr. Howard”

  • Lurker

    LOL I remember when I had appendicitis

    I probably couldn’t walk for like 2 months

  • Minnesota Nice

    Weiner gets yanked!

    . . . according to this J$ tweet – https://twitter.com/johnnydollar01/status/875808378110574592

    • Grandpa D

      I nominate Minnesota Nice for the link description of the day.

    • Larry Kelly

      I saw it. Actually pretty good. A little long maybe.

      • Minnesota Nice

        Okay its Friday and my immature mind is thinking are talking about the movie or joking about “it”

        • Larry Kelly

          Best left to the imagination.

    Re: Rachel Maddow’s A-block

    Fox News hosts must envy Rachel Maddow with all their hearts.

    They must find it unimaginable that she is treated rationally, rather than linked heart and soul (along with her every work colleague) to a hateful viewer and would-be assassin.

    What a life it must be to live in such a world where Brian Stelter and company dont link your politics to unconfirmed reports of hate crimes toward gays and Muslims and hideous graffiti 24 hours after Donald Trump is elected. A world where the blame is bipartisan (though still thoroughly Trump’s fault) when a politically aligned monster tries to assassinate congressmen.

    The media is moving on now, folks…and no, they must account for none of it. They’re just doing their jobs, informing us. Don’t try and stifle freedom of the press with notions that they’re lying partisan bastards who have poisoned the well.

    In fact, Rachel says the media will save America!

    By that she means they’re going to save us from ourselves. They’re going to show us who’s boss!

    Oh, to be the golden children!

    • Larry Kelly

      There are still windmills to slay… and living things too.

      • Cecelia

        I wonder if that synthetic estrogen stuff could knock me off my soapbox.

        • Larry Kelly

          hope not

  • Larry Kelly
    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      The “reporter” was butthurt simply because he thanked the President who got his son released from that hellhole, and not the one who sat on his a$$ and did nothing? Does this overpaid tool really think that Obama deserves any credit for it? How in the hell was King Putt involved in the outcome?

      • Larry Kelly

        Obama deserved credit where he got results as with the death of cops by excusing black rioters and young thugs.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          And when he enabled Iran to speed up their nuclear weapons program.

    • Cecelia

      In which Mr. and Mrs. Warmbier go from Whole Foods to Cracker Barrel denizens in one day.

      (A designation used recently in a media poll)

      Part of the obligation of a concealed carry permit is to maintain proficiency with your weapons by frequent practice and to protect others. It is such a hugh responsibility, I have not chosen to get mine as yet. My partner has his permit and I let him use one of my firearms to ensure he carrys a top quality pistol to meet his obligation.

      • Cecelia

        In many states , you don’t have to have a concealed carry permit on your property or in your car.

        • Larry Kelly

          Property is okay in Ohio, but a gun in a car must be unloaded and in a locked compartment unless you have a cc. I have a 12 gauge shotgun by the door. Pretty typical for us rual folk.

          • Cecelia

            We do too and we aren’t rural yet.

  • Minnesota Nice

    Drudge has a picture of Tucker above link to Concha piece on stress. I thought Tucker looks different, then looked closer and see it is a picture of Tucker when he was at MSNBC.

    • Larry Kelly

      Thankfully he’d given up the bow tie by then.

    • Cecelia

      Tucker and Maddow do look like siblings.

      I think the heavily drugged host that Drudge alluded to is Anderson Cooper.

      Stoned and made of stone.

  • Larry Kelly

    Progressives actually did have a point about the dangers of “home grown terrorists”. They just missed the irony that they were growing them.
