The biggest Pop star of our time dies suddenly of cardiac arrest and the ignorant losers at News Hounds take their usual opportunity to attack and smear Fox News. These low lifes have no shame.
 
p.s I see Antoinette has been sipping the joy juice again. She's keeps getting Stanford mixed up with Sanford.

Big Momma and her flock of dim-witted mindless sheep have absolutely no shame. You know how those hating simpletons take some kind of perverse joy in the Governor's personal problems.  
 
Utterly Pathetic

Fox Nation Slimes Michael Jackson
Reported by Ellen - June 26, 2009 - 10 comments  
 
Well, she has done it again. The Heinous Hen leader checks out one, yes one report by FoxNation and decides that Fox has slimed Michael Jackson because they only discussed one area of his life. Has she not been paying attention for the last day and a half?
 
Another excuse fr this woman? to attack Fox and her little myrmidons follow along without a clue.
 
Another clueless posting by the clueless leader of the Mutts.

I just wonder how some of those holier than thou hypocrites could stand up under similar scurtiny of their lives. After all, there are serious rumors about Ellen and Priscilla.

I suspect that they would fail miserably in the court of public opinion. Their non-stop hatred and intolerance of anyone who dares to disagree with their far left views seems to render them unable to admit their own endless short commings. The sole reason Big Momma and company hate Johnny is because he dares to expose their continous blatant lies and smears.
 
I say keep up the good work Johnny, it drives them nuts eh?

Laura Ingraham is filling in tonight on "The O'Reilly Factor." That's a no-surprise guest host. 1/7 (one-seventh) of last night's pre-empted show will air tonight: the segment with Bernie Goldberg. I doubt the other 6/7 of the show will ever see the light of day on FNC.

I believe Laura will be traveling next week and that's why the surprise guest hosts.

Hannity's "Soul Mate Of Hate" Arrested Again
Reported by Ellen - Fri 4:13 PM
 
Hannity knows a white supremacist. White supremacist gets arrested. Can anyone explain what this has to do with Hannity? Have you gone off the wagon, Ellen?
 
And then there is this from one of the puppies.
 
Freedom of speech and opposing views are one thing-BUT inciting hate actions, disrespect for the Pres., insunuating pitchfork actions and seditious moves are not covered.

Hey, moron. Don't you think if there was any truth whatsoever in your silly accusations, Hannity would be in jail now? Ya big dope!!

Bret Baier's house is certainly beautiful, but an off-the-showroom-floor look is not a very appealing one in the long haul. It tends to be a little cold and more than a little noveau riche seeming.
 
Mrs. Baier would have done better with a decorator. As contradictory as it seems, in interior design you really CAN buy personality (if you have to) and an evolved rather than staged look to a space.
 
The bit about Joe Scarborough going on with George Snuffupagus (or however you smell his name), makes me wonder why Mika is acting like such a ambitious stage-wife when it comes to Joe?  
 
Come on, girl! Scarborough and Morning Joe are truly NOT your last best hope...

It's going to be interesting to see the analysis if MSNBC talent manages to drag themselves into the studio this weekend in order to cover the world changing story of Michael Jackson's death...

Cecelia, my husband named him Snuffleupagus, from Sesame Street, and that is his name now in my family.
 
No easier to spell but apropos I think.
 
I agree about the Baier's home. But if they're happy I'm happy.

HA! The irony is amazing. These people really don't see themselves through the same eyes as they see the rest of the world, do they?

Now, Grammie, good design is far more important than happiness...

"insunuating pitchfork actions and seditious moves "
 
Besides his screwed up lack of insight I wonder what the above means, especially the "seditious moves"
 
Is that a new dance the kids are doing now?

What sort of sedition is Hannity is supposedly fomenting?

I just realized that Dennis Miller is out of the question as a potential surprise guest host. He said on Wednesday night that he was leaving Thursday for a two-week vacation in Japan.

Correction: 2/7 (two-sevenths) of last night's show aired tonight. Not only did the segment with Bernie air, but so did the Talking Points Memo and Part 1 of the Top Story segment with Karl Rove.

I passed up the link to KO's sleazy reading of the Sanford's Emails b/c I was listening to something else at the time and now I can't find it.

Blackflon - why are you obsessed with the newshounds? The 5 or 6 regulars here know where you are coming from so why the incessant attacks - I mean it is not as though they post here - is it?  
Imnotblue - So Fox has not replaced Colmes eh? - Mind you he has a radio show so that is alright then!
