      “Old Blue Eyes II”.

      • Cecelia

        He’s had fillers put in his lips.

        That and eye lid lifts don’t work out well on men.

      • Mitch Alan

        I thought Woody Allen has brown eyes?

  • Larry Kelly
    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Ain’t love grand?

      • Presbyter

        Can you spell “ spousal privilege “?

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          The reason for the solid marriage of the Clintons.

  • Cecelia

    I am so sad in the news of James Rosen.

    I admired him very much. Very disappointing.

    • Mitch Alan

      I wonder where he will resurface. Or is his career destroyed, another Eric Bolling situation. Somehow Ed Henry was forgiven, but not these two?

      With Ailes and O’Reilly there were cash settlements and lawsuits. That is quite a bit different from Rosen and Bolling.

      • Cecelia

        Henry wasn’t accused of sexual harassment, that I know about.

        He committed adultery. I hope he and his wife have worked things out.

        • Mitch Alan

          He sent picture of his you know what to his stripper mistress in Las Vegas and she released it to the public. Source: NY Post.

          • Cecelia

            Maybe they were carrying on and she got chatty.

            I’m glad I grew up in the days when men expressed their interest via dinner and flowers.

          • Larry Kelly

            and a love note, though I did later dip her pigtail in the inkwell

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            “I want you to listen to me. I’m only going to say this once. I did not dip that pigtail in that inkwell, no not once.”

          • Larry Kelly

            “and it’s time I get on with the Safety Partrol’s business”

          • Cecelia

            Oh, you two!

            I get side stitches!

          • Cecelia

            In the one room schoolhouse?

          • Minnesota Nice

            Mistress wasn’t a Fox News employee – huge difference.

          • Mitch Alan

            Then why did FNC suspend him for 4 months?

          • Minnesota Nice

            Probably violated some ethics policy, but it wasn’t sexual harassment against a co-worker.

          • Cecelia

            Sounds like revenge porn.

        • Saintsfan720

          Ed Henry’s situation was more comparable to Charles Payne’s I think. Consensual but made public and not putting himself or his employer in the best light.

          • Cecelia

            I think Payne’s girlfriend met him as a guest on FBN on occasion and said that she was pressured into the affair (whatever that means) and that he later dropped her as a guest (hurt her career) after they split.

      • Cecelia

        Rosen and Fox seemed to have managed his departure in a way that was best for him.

        I hope he can return to being a tv reporter in the future.

        Hopefully, some good will come of all this for everyone. Frankly, I’m not sure all the devastation is justified.

        • homemaker

          I am guessing James will write books. If he does a few he will be able to reappear in the media in some way. I have to admit I was flabbergasted when I read the story.

          • Cecelia

            I have that feeling too that unlike some others, he’s going to be able make a come back.

  • Cecelia
    • Larry Kelly

      Oh Trump doesn’t trust Democrats any more than he trusts Republicans. He sells the Brooklyn Bridge, he doesn’t buy it.

  • Saintsfan720

    James Rosen is a talented and smart reporter. However, that last incident allegedly happened last spring when Ailes was out, O’Reilly was either out or about to be out, and the law firm had begun their investigation. There’s no excuse if true.

    • Larry Kelly

      and dumb

    • Cecelia

      The Hill piece said that Rosen had harassed someone at the State Dept.

      Heather Nauert?

      • AndrewComment

        Actually (according to Folkenflik) the woman was a foreign national covering the State Department.

        Apparently Fox settled with her in exchange for her silence and she moved on.

        She now works for a foreign-based news organization.

  • Larry Kelly

    Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Mark Warner coming up on ‘Special Report’ with Bret Baier.
    Expect a war dance.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      I make it a point to never watch Granny Warren. Or, as I call the Senator from Massachusetts, “Trots with Turkeys.”

      • Mitch Alan

        I would PAY for her DNA test, which would help her prove that she is really Native American.

    • Grandpa D

      What a coincidence! They were the Final Jeopardy question today.
      (No one got it right.)

  • GATXER

    What kind of nut is Iceboy the disgraced racist news-hound? Well there is this…….. he replies to a Fox News tweet advertising Scott Baio being on Watters Word last Sat……and says this
    “Why would anyone do that?
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/949767938189529089
    :………which I have no problem with I wouldn’t go out of my way to watch that either………but then we have this……he then not only watches the show but rage tweets whining about it. Calls Baio a D-lister not realizing hes a Z-lister who’s afraid to go on a #1 show because he cant leave his moms basement.
    “Two Trump d-listers on FOX News. Slow news day?”
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/949819354341879809
    “The media does not need advice from a d-list Trumper who can only get booked on weekend FOX News Trump propaganda shows.”
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/949819882484518912
    then send that tweet twice in case any of his few low info people missed it.
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/949819976541769729
    “Trumper Baio on FOX News pretending to be a tough guy yet if you criticize him for his Trump support he’ll most likely block you than engage in a debate. “https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/950073498889871362
    Then the disgraced rasit goes on to talk to other nuts about a show he wonders why anybody would watch, inculding attcking his wife.
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/950052244908642304

    forgets hes blocked J$ for just pointing out his daily lies.

    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/949822608412946432
