    If the odious Lisa Bloom had defended Ed Asner as being an out-of-touch remorseless dinosaur she would have been on the money.

    He is the poster child for that.

    Let him alone.

    • timdub70

      Isn’t this like Joe Namath asking Suzy Kolber for a kiss some years ago?

      • Cecelia

        I hadn’t heard.

      • carolr527

        If I recall, Namath was quite drunk.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          If I remember right, Suzy was quite pregnant at the time. And, yes, Namath was very drunk.

      Best response I heard about Lisa Bloom about why she had her book picked up by Weinstein and then hired as a consultant/lawyer is that now she is bound by attorney/client privilege and can’t represent any new women who want to file charges against Harvey baby!

      • Cecelia

        Interesting! Bloom also was a feminist beard.

  • Cecelia

    What’s going to be the gun or Confederate flag in the Weinstein debacle?

    We’re talking extremely rich white males in the movie industry, liberals are not going to pass up this chance to get some sort of quasi-religious theater from this, and the DNC will want lemonade from lemons via some corporate concessions/money/privilege to interest groups as well as legislation.

    • carolr527

      This is outrageous.

      • Cecelia

        It must be exhausting for these online entities like YouTube, Google, and Twitter to concentrate so much effort on stifling whoever challenges the oligarch left and to squelch folks living under oppressive national regimes.

      • Cecelia

        Carol, it occurs to me that the precipitous downturn that both Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan seem to have had in their careers, their emotional and mental stability, their physicality, has been from the trauma of rape.

        • homemaker

          I think you may be correct.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Classic PTSD. Rape victims aren’t only violated physically, but emotionally. Some never recover.

    • carolr527

      I heard Twitter lifted the suspension.

      • Cecelia

        Twitter caught so much flak about it.

        Time was when Fox News was the only corporation in which there was no industry push-back from the corporate MSM (nor from the chattering class, in general) against any woman making a claim against them.

        That served to make Fox seem uniquely subversive.

        That is no longer the case. This is likely to be for a very brief period, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it become something akin to Salem.

  • J.J.

    Should be another good nigh for Hannity. Saw a promo that he has Jesus Campos interview. I think this will be the first time he has spoken publicly.

    • Mitch Alan

      I wonder how that rumor started. There was no interview like that tonight.

      • J.J.

        I saw the promo during Martha’s hour…..weird.
        Never addressed or mentioned.

        • J.J.

          Hannity responds to upset viewers on Twitter.
          Kind of bush league for him not to say this on air.

          Sean Hannity✔
          @seanhannity

          He cancelled.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            More likely, he was pressured by either his employer or law enforcement to cancel. It is still being called an open investigation.

          • J.J.

            I think you are right. His union, the hotel, or LE told him not to do interviews.

            However, the maintenance man who was in the hall with him has done an interview. He said he froze for a moment while the bullets flew and Campos saved his life by yelling at him to take cover.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Campos would be considered an important witness. I don’t know whether the maintenance man is or not. It depends what additional information, if any, he was able to give the police.

          • J.J.

            and it just got weirder……

            “Media scrum tonight as we learn security officer shot in Vegas attack, Jesus Campos’ whereabouts are unknown.”

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That is industrial-strength weird.

  • Flay Mateo

    What do people think about Brian Kilmeade at 10? It seems like social media reaction has been quite positive. I like seeing him there, and the studio looks great. I do wonder why Fox is having him fill in there, of all people. It kind of seems like they’re grooming him for his own show… is he the backup plan if Ingraham flops or Hannity decides to leave?

    • I don’t think Laura will flop. The backwash from Hannty’s ratings will keep her afloat even if she’s only mediocre. As for Kilmeade, he’s a long-time favorite of mine. One of the quickest wits on television, with a kind of wry delivery that reminds me of Joey Bishop. (His jokes are constantly being cited by people who never watch him and don’t know when he’s kidding, but that doesn’t seem to have hurt his career.) He’s right-leaning, but not all the time, thinks for himself, and seems to get along well with his colleagues. It does surprise me that they have him working from 6am to 11pm when there are others who could have handled 10pm, but what was supposed to be a rotating spot until the end of October has been his since the second week. I hope it continues; Fox can buy him a cot.

  • Larry Kelly

    Ed Asner has spunk. Now and then he coughs some up.

    • J.J.

      I hate spunk!
      — Lou Grant

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I always wondered why Mary looked a bit disheveled when she came out of Mr. Grant’s office.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani
    • Cecelia

      She loves her husband.

  • dsmawley

    While there may be some @ “the pound” desiring a Laura failure, I don’t think that is a prevailing view of Fox News fans. She will get a fair shot with a great lead in & must produce strong rating numbers like anyone else in this cable game.
