  • Twitter erupted Wednesday night when a certain disgraced Fox hater tried to smear Greg Gutfeld. He was careful not to use Greg’s twitter handle (so Greg wouldn’t see it and respond), but someone alerted Greg, and his response set off a twitter storm. We have the highlights for your reading pleasure.

      Ice seems to want to go out of his way to look stupid. To him, it simply comes naturally.

      • Larry Kelly

        His stupidity is exceeded by his dishonesty.

    • Larry Kelly

      Nice to see the IceTurd get the recognition he has long deserved.

    • Cecelia

      Ice deleted the tweet. What had he said?

      • Minnesota Nice
        • Larry Kelly

          forgot “the”

        • Cecelia

          Thank you. I read her tweet but didn’t get the part where I was supposed to open up the pic…

          Doh!

      • You can see the screenshot at thelink I postedin today’s first comment.

        • GATXER

          16 hours later and the coward is still making excuses. Good job from GG on calling him out….I wish more people would call him on his lies and out of context vids.

        • Cecelia

          Oh, sorry. I opened your link, but then failed to open the top tweet.

  • Larry Kelly

    What I wonder is “Would Chris Hayes Get Beaned in a Full Season of Play?”.

  • GATXER
    • Minnesota Nice

      Of course the liberal USAToday author has to take many snide swipes at Trump and sadly even DeVos. Otherwise nice to see Olbermann called out and seems like he was forced to apologize.

      • Thanks for the warning. I won’t read it now.

        • Cecelia

          It’s worth reading.

      • Cecelia

        Just read this after saying the same thing.

        True dat!

    • Cecelia

      Enjoyable piece, but only in scenarios where a liberal or liberal tv station is being held to account for deplorable behavior, must one simultaneously do an at-the-very-least-equal-excoriation of a conservative or of FNC.

  • GATXER

    This is one of the dumbest things Ive read on a major news site in a long time about Fox News.

    • Most service providers place news and business channels together. My provider, Altice, places them this way:
      23 MSNBC
      24 CNBC
      25 CNN
      26 FNC
      102 i24
      103 Euronews
      104 BBC World News
      105 Bloomberg
      106 FBN

      • Minnesota Nice

        I have DirecTV (since 1997), our news/business channels:
        202 CNN
        204 HLN
        345 BBC World News

        353 Bloomberg
        355 CNBC
        356 MSNBC
        357 CNBC World
        359 FBN
        360 FNC (Fox News Channel)

        I maybe missing one or two, perhaps the doog owner knows as I know he also has DirecTV from previous conversations here at J$.

        • sky303

          looking at Direct tv’s line up that’s all of them except RT on channel 321 also since 1997 , that’s customer loyalty there.
          my system in HD is
          731 HLN
          736 CNN
          737 MSNBC
          738 Bloomberg
          776 Fox News
          792 CNBC
          793 Fox Business

          in SD
          it’s
          31 HLN
          36 CNN
          37 MSNBC
          38 Fox News
          53 CNBC
          121 BBC World
          134 Fox Business
          156 Bloomberg

          I’ve seen Fios’ line up they do it the best
          having all the news channels between 600 and 620 hd 100-120 sd

        • Larry Kelly

          The cabin only cares about two:
          354 DOG CHANNEL
          360 FOX NEWS CHANNEL

          • sky303

            Dog Channel ? What in the world is that?

          • Larry Kelly

            Leave your dog at home? Have a bored dog? Do you like your dog barking at the TV?
            “Yes”, you say? Then the DOG CHANNEL is for you and your canine companion.

            Nonstop owner-tested, dog approved TV geared to a pooch to keep amusement available when a dog-sitter isn’t part of your budget.

            Just get a MY PILLOW for Fido to park in front of the flat-screen and never feel guilty of leaving him/her alone again!

          • sky303

            a whole channel for dogs, that’s interesting, hope the dog pitches in the bill ;p

      • sky303

        You get Euro News ? interesting, Wish mine had I24 news I like them, I have to watch online.

      • GATXER

        Comcast which try’s to have the same lineup in multi area has
        29 HLN
        36 CNBC
        47 MSNBC
        51 FOX
        411 Bloomberg
        410 FBN

        I don’t think the guy knows what hes talking about……….EVERY provider Ive ever had them some what together….DISH…..DirectTV…….Insight,,,,,,,,and Comcast.

        Only issue Ive seen is when they add something they have to fit it in…..Comcast how every has ALL of the News channels in HD right next to each other
        1110 Fox
        1111 HLN
        1113 MSNBC
        1117 BBCW
        1121 CNBC
        11123 FBN
        with no other channels in between them.

    • sky303

      That’s kind of dumb , I don’t watch a channel because it’s on channel 303 or channel 43 as long as it has something I want to watch , yes it makes it easier to channel surf that way ( I don’t always use my guide and search thru it) and I might land on a channel but still If I won’t want to watch it I will change the channel.

    • Cecelia

      Nice to see they’ve moved on from Fox being popular because it appeals to those rubes who aren’t smart or intelligentual enough to make it in an academic/technological society, or dumb enough to become our political pawns.

    • Grandpa D

      The Washington Post is outsourcing its opinion columns to The Onion.

  • Minnesota Nice

    Funny.

    As usual, Joe Concha had a good column posted here. But, I have not had a problem with the media coverage of storm so far. I live in South Louisiana where 27 inches of rain fell this time last year. Many friends and relatives saw their homes and cars go underwater and have spent past year rebuilding. Have mostly watched coverage on FNC and Norah O’Donnell on “CBS This Morning” and found the first hand accounts from citizens powerful and moving. I definitely feel for the young lady that went off on CNN but all she had to do was tell them no she didn’t want to do interview.

    • Cecelia

      I can’t believe she used that sort of language in front of her children and other people’s children.

      There have been tons of interviews with stressed-out folks who have shown much grace and maturity.

      That woman had NO excuse to act like that.

      • Saintsfan720

        She had been through a very traumatic event. I would cut her some slack. 🙂

        • Cecelia

          She’s an uncouth moron.
