The person who reviewed RED EYE obviously hasn't watched it enough. REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER is the LAST show RED EYE aspires to!

Yeah, that RedEye review misses the mark on so many levels. It doesn't even sound like he has ever watched the show, only a single YouTube clip of it.
He talks about Fox alienating it's "religious right" base (like his parents), but the show is on at 3 AM and I doubt that there are many old religious people in that time demo.
I think it is also worth adding that Bill Maher and SNL haven't been considered funny by anybody for years.

This isn't cable news, but I want to bring it up. I had no idea Bob Stokes was such a sexual harrasser/pervert. I used to like him. Too bad. Good for Hillary Andrews to win her suit against him.

Oh, this was at The Weather Channel and reported at FOXNews.com via the "New York Post":

The Hazlett link needs to be fixed. By the way, she's very cute. (Don't worry. I won't go Bob Stokes on her.)

OS, did someone take your name in vain at Hotline?

I can't wait to see what reply, if any, NBC's Chuck Todd makes to the HRC Campaign?
Any chance they will go through with it?

Mike: Whenever I saw Stokes, who is obviously Asian, I always wondered: what is his real name?

That's tdf, grammie! Anyone who knows me knows I would be hard pressed to praise maddow. I think patsy or 'why' would be the culprit of the triple post. Who knows, maybe it's philby. Royal King is seared in their little pea brains. All I can do is laugh!

I saw that Greg Kelly was on Fox 5 NY this morning. I wonder if that means anything?

Mike, OS is Olby Sucks.
I use it, like I do FF for Fox Fan, simply b/c it is easier and faster.

I've liked Andy Kindler, but what is his ideology? It has to be left, but to what degree? Far, not-quite-far, moderate, or center left?

Tucker's analogy is hilariously accurate, but Allapundit's line about the cover of Time needing only "a milkshake with two straws in it and the headline, “You have beautiful eyes.”' is priceless!

Excellent BOR piece by Bill Nunes. One problem: BOR doesn't just claim he's an independent; he is an independent. Other than that, excellent.

I want to follow up on something I brought up at 5:13 PM Tuesday:
>This is sort of related to cable news. I sent a friend request to Meghan Asha, a semi-regular "Red Eye" guest, on Facebook. It was just a roll of the dice, as it always is with me and women, but I sense a big fat denial of that request because of who she is and the fact that she doesn't know me from Adam, as a friend of mine would say.<
Well, almost 52 1/2 hours have passed and still no accept. Looking like a denial, all right. I figured that would happen.
I'm so bored and lonely right now. I echo that sentiment in my latest blog posting, which is my "Homepage" here.
