      I like how Hannity is reporting this whole matter. I expect big numbers again for his show last night.

    • Larry Kelly

      That was a good read!

      Not a pretty picture. Hope she sues his azzzzzzz off.

        And it’s only eleven years ago. Only yesterday in the scope of decades old accusations. I have the Kelly family’s treasured daguerreotype of young Abe fondling a female rail-splitter.

    • Larry Kelly

      Oh darn. And to think I thought so highly of him.

      • timdub70

        Not exactly his decade either.

      The op-ed, written by the woman assaulted, tells a full and complete story. So far I have read the Politico and WaPo stories about this and they are leaving out the first part of her story or minimizing it. Be sure to read HER story and then see what the media is doing to the story.

        Franken has always had an angry and condescending edge to him. I can see him being a boor and then being an even bigger jerk over a negative response to his entitlement.

        I can’t get worked up about this though. It’s was crude and juvenile and an apology was in order.

        We have to keep some sense of perspective between idiots and true predators.

        • Minnesota Nice

          If it was just the picture taken by his brother, perhaps, however he also forced his tongue down her throat as “practice”. Also another woman has come forward, see https://mediaequalizer.com/brian-maloney/2017/11/melanie-morgan-after-tv-appearance-al-franken-harassed-me-too

            Sound like Frankenstein is really passionate over fiscal policy…

            I don’t like Al Franken, and this was harrassment, but the only thing sexual about it was he was arguing with a woman, which she sure played up to the nines in her account.

            If we have to expunge from public life, every man who’s acted like a jerk toward a woman, we’re going to have to get an island.

            There’s got to be some perspective with this.

            I’m sure that there is a picture of the freak forcing some unwilling female’s hand down his diaper. https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s–Iv7fooXe–/18erpzpga8wjujpg.jpg

          • Cecelia

            Don’t ever do that again!…

            Where can I get some Bleachbit?

            Yikes…

            What has been seen, cannot be unseen.

          • homemaker

            I think the picture alone would not have made me disgusted. It was the story of “practicing the kiss” & him sticking his tongue aggressively into her mouth that made me feel disgusted. That was assault & this picture was a “eff you” to her for fighting back.

    Interesting Eboni K Williams retweeted the Newsweek ridiculous Fox news aging audience story. Noticed her twitter profile says Fox News host. Her website ebonikwilliams.com still says she the host of Fox News Specialists.

    • Mitch Alan

      She quit that show, she is too pretty for radio.

  • Larry Kelly

    FNC Memes – cover about have the tweets of Stooges for the last five years. Idiots and morons… and their mothers dress them funny.

    HLN is making some changes

    S.E Cupp is moving to 5pmet

      As long as Cupp doth not runneth over into SPECIAL REPORT’s time slot.

      Unfiltered has experienced some ratings problems
      Understatement of the week!

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        And the Hindenburg had a rough landing.

    • Mitch Alan

      Now instead of not watching her show at 7 pm, I will now not be watching her show at 5 pm.

    • CDG24

      Unfiltered will fit in better closer to the other non-crime shows on HLN, but there are fewer potential viewers at 5:00 ET and it is a panel show that will now have to go up against the top cable news panel show.

      Also, Unfiltered will now have an even weaker lead-in.

      When a show changes time slots less than four months on-air, and it is not related to personnel changes/ time slot openings, it is not a great sign for the show.
      If ratings don’t get better, they can’t just move the show again. I also don’t think they have another direction to go with the format.

      This line from the memo is laughable: “This new line-up creates a stronger flow into prime, which now hosts a robust library of highly-rated HLN and CNN Original programming, designed for us to win.”

      None of the shows on HLN are highly-rated and they have no chance at winning by any possible measure.

      • sky303

        Since i usually watch HLN at 4 et , I do have a higher chance of being able to watch at 5et than 7et…

      Not quite the appetite, opprobrium, or vigor as there was toward Fox, in the reporting of sexual harassment among the cerebral NPR folks.

      • Larry Kelly

        I say Buffy, those FOX people are quite the neanderthals.

  • GATXER

    I don’t post non cable new stuff often so I hope J$ wont mind this…….but I think everybody should see this about this Vietnam Veteran.

    What the hell is Somerby talking about ?

    • Grandpa D

      I’ve given up trying to figure that out.

  • Larry Kelly

    A.B. Stoddard is on something called “No Labels Radio”. I would gladly slap STUPID across her forehead.

      Or, as the racist stooges spell it, “Stoopid.”
