The more The White House decides to act like the radical left, who cannot abide by anyone "fact-checking" them or challenging their prognosis, FNC will garner more viewers because a large majority of the American people perceive, correctly, a leftist bias in the rest of the MSM....
This will be good for FNC....
This will be good for J$.

Re: "Bad priorites?" Z on TV  
[Inserts mine]
There is something wrong with President Obama running from TV interview to TV interview with everyone except Fox, while his highest-[taxpayer] paid and most trusted presidential advisers spend their time [and taxpayer money] on Sunday morning TV trying to take down Fox [with taxpayer money] instead of building up the country. Maybe they should spend a little more time [and taxpayer money] on the reality of where this country finds itself today instead of trying to use the media [and taxpayer money] to polish the president's image and punish any outlet that doesn't co-operate [with taxpayer money].
I think I've clearly made my point. Agree or disagree? That is the question.

2 years already for FBN? How time flies.  
So I thought that Comcast WOULD not make any deals for NBC-Universal, looks like I'm going to be wrong about it.

I caught the part of Imus this AM discussing Lou Dobbs' last minute cancelation....what a shame.
Perhaps when Mr. Dobbs joins FBN, he can tell us all if he was actually forced no to go on by the CNN bosses.

Johnny, David -- I can't remember his last name even though he's a regular on Morning Joe--- was recently hawking his book on Imus and was just delightful there.
I had wondered how his spot would go over on MSNBC.
Now I know...

This is my favorite quote from "SteveDooshy" aka The Fetid One from his Reddit thread:
"Well Hops, I had to delete my posts just so I could prove who you are right Fox Fan."
Sorry Patrick, but I still have never opened a Reddit account. I do still read links to it from popurls, but yours never seem to make it to the top of the list. I wonder why?

Tonight on "The Factor," there was another follow-up on Warren Ballentine's racial attack on Juan Williams. Bill explained that he didn't hear what Ballentine said for exactly the reason I thought: he was wrapping up the segment and preparing to tease what was coming next. Juan was on tonight in his usual Monday slot with Mary Katharine Ham. So far, FOXNews.com hasn't posted video of the segment and I don't know if they will.
Also, Juan was a guest in the third hour of John Gibson's radio show today.

Re: "Stossel debuts": It's always the anonymous insiders, or the PR people, that spout off amateurishly or defensively; or both.
