  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Jill Stein conspiring with the Russians? Isn’t this the same Jill Stein who insisted on recounts in several states? Recounts which would only have benefited Madame Clinton?

    • sky303

      Yes either that or people like to blame her for Clinton’s loss because apparently some people voted for her , Johnson, stayed home, picked a dead gorilla, instead of the two most un popular candidates in running history, so it could be that.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Still, she insisted on the recounts. So, to now claim that she was part of a massive international conspiracy to deny Clinton her birthright as president, makes them look like complete fools.

    RE: Erin Burnette’s eye

    Reminded me of this (George’s involuntary winking) —
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWedkk3K2Q4

  • I hope Erin gets better soon.

  • I went to Twitchy to see left-wing overreactions to the tax bill. Big mistake. Mr. Bill was mocked for yesterday’s Tip of the Day.

    • Cecelia

      That first tweet responding to Bill was a hoot!

      • It’s okay. Subsequent replies were worse. It’s a good thing Bill won’t actually see these replies. Social media posts are in his words, but his staff runs his (and Holly the Corgi’s) accounts. So, the joke’s on you, haters!

        • Cecelia

          Why would anyone tweet him then.

          • They don’t know he doesn’t run the accounts.

          • Cecelia

            I know, but why would Bill let that info out?

          • Focus on the first sentence and disregard the second. To his point, I wear medium polo shirts, but large t-shirts when I run and sweatshirts when I’m running errands or relaxing at home.

          • By the way, the first tweet I saw this time referenced the Wiehl settlement. It was a low blow.

          • Cecelia

            Fox paid her to shut up back in the day when the media and liberals could pretend Fox invented sexual harassment.

            You’d think that scenario would have boded caution for both Ailes and O’Reilly.

          • Cecelia

            That’s nice.

            Now why would BOR ever have mentioned that he doesn’t read his Twitter replies?

          • He didn’t. I just know it. He’s a stubborn Luddite.

          • Cecelia

            Ah.

          • When he promotes all the streaming devices where you can get the No Spin News, as well as when he did Monday’s Facebook Live video, he proudly admits “I don’t know what (variation: what any of) that means.”

          • Cecelia

            Most likely you are correct.

  • CDG24

    Kennedy and Jesse being the hosts for NYE is not too big of a surprise, but it looks like Fox just threw together the rest of it.

    Fox seems to not have many people wiling to work on NYE. Even Leventhal and Keating are not doing it for the first time in years.

    Ed Henry will probably do fine. Dean Cain always does pretty well when he appears on Fox. Though I don’t understand having Fowler or Boothe doing NYE coverage. Especially Fowler. What makes Fox think that he would be good at being a Times Square correspondent?

    Fox looked like they were trying to make more of a commitment to trying to beat CNN on NYE in recent years, but this year it doesn’t seem like it is the case.

    • Cecelia

      Cain and Boothe are fetching. There should always be some sexual tension at parties.

      If Fox is lucky something untoward will be said or done, but nothing Griffin crass.

  • J.J.

    I guess KG bowed out of NYE with Bolling gone. I would have enjoyed KG and Jesse.

  • GATXER

    Disgraced Racist Iceboy wast obsessively raging that Fox wasn’t talking about the Tax bill vote for hours before the vote last night…….but I wonder just how stupid he felt when there was actually news (the Vote) and ONLY Fox news was live while MSNBC and CNN were showing hours old shows?

    #laughingstocks
    #whitenationalist

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      He doesn’t feel stupid at all. That would imply a sense of shame. He has none.

    • What is the point of talking about something for hours, something that hasn’t even happened yet? Is there only one story in the news? Funny how the papers always find hundreds of things to cover every day, but Newshounds liars want Fox to obsess on whatever single story he picks out of a fishbowl for that day. #drs

      • sky303

        MSNBC and CNN must cover like one story frame per day so FNC must also because reasons..

    Interesting to see Cable News Ratings for just Sunday Mornings.

    Fox News averaged 1,496,800 viewers with MSNBC at 480,400 & CNN at 781,000.

    My ratings grid for 7 am to NOON Sunday, December 17, 2017.

    Jeanine Pirro didn’t host Hannity last night. It was Kimberly G.

    I think Judge Jeanine gets better numbers than Kim.

  • Cecelia

    They had access to the commuter info of Democrats in congress.

    I can’t imagine that much will come of this for DSW and fellow pols who shielded the Awans.

    Their fellow Republicans will be loathe to go after them, and certainly the MSM won’t.

      This will be buried unless this reporter from the Daily Caller keeps digging. No one else seems interested. The panel on Special Report was disinterested.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 FNC dominates
    4 has been terrific
    3 New Year’s Eve
    2 wide shut
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 CNN staff elated ‘rude’ Bolduan is on leave.

  • CDG24

    A stronger digital presence from Fox News was being mentioned for a while, but it is surprising that they are going to do a pay service.

    They have the advantage of the Fox name, but they are going to need to come up with some good programming to convince people to buy.

    Maybe Dana Loesch leaving The Blaze was a precursor to joining Fox for this service.

    The service would be a great place to bring back some version of Red Eye. That would probably be one of the best selling points they could have.

  • Minnesota Nice

    We had a Yankee gift exchange at work today and the gift can be funny, recycled, good or terrible up to $10.

    This is what I got – Image.

  • sky303

    Making a streaming pay service is tricky , you gotta have stuff people Beck found out how hard it is, even NBC had a hard time with a comedy service that they are shutting down, So if there’s a FOX news pay service it might be wise to have both channels and some interesting exclusive stuff as well and good price that justifies it.

    • gcblues

      Actually, for a while now Fox news and FBN are free on yahoo with live streams no longer interrupted. Not too hard.

      • gcblues
        • I like that “4K QUALITY” claim. Fox News is produced and fed at 720p. Nothing can turn that into 4K. I wonder how long this stream will survive.

          • gcblues

            there are many streams every day. plus show in entirety almost as soon as they are done
