What does Tom Brokaw mean when he says FNC has "got a pretty strong filter on all day long"? Seriously, I don't know.

That would be the filter that FNC uses to prevent a steady stream of left wing bias from broadcasting from its studios. Tom is used to working for a network which does not use this filter.

Okay Johnny, what's with the sudden run of anti-Cramer articles. Does this have anything to do with Fox Business and their attacks on him?

Maddow does not do the map illustrations, so the point of the article that she should learn Geography is senseless. On the other hand, Maddow's point that McCain should not be needing tofight for places like Indiana is accurate. Advantage Maddow.

I don't think FBN is responsible for writing the articles. Maybe their campaign has raised visibility on Cramer, but the articles are out there. I just link to 'em.
As for the geography, that's a fair point. Although you'd think she would notice the erroneous map and point it out, if she really knew her states.

I'm too old and too graduated to be an FNC intern. :o( It'd probably be a step down for me anyway.

just looked at Monday nights #'s, here we are in the heart of the election cycle when CNN & MSNBC are supposed to be competitive with Fox - NOT, Fox news dominated every hour from 5 till midnight on both the key audience and the totals. Wait till after these elections are over to see real domination. Dream on Fox haters!

BOR just uttered the dreaded two words ("shut up"), but not to a guest.

Very true, Mike... I heard him say it... and the first thing I could think is, "Can someone take it out of context." And the answer is, yes... very easily. I'll be surprised if we don't see a quite edit of that clip, made to look like he was telling Beckel to "Shut up." He clearly wasn't... but since the truth has never been a deterrent, I doubt it will be now.

O'Reilly put a hammer down on the Ayers apologists tonight. It was postworthy material, johnny!

Is Miz Mad doing an Olby impersonation? Are they becoming interchangeable? Are the lines begginning to blur.  
Has anyone ever seen the two of them together??????

I'm ashamed that Dr. Silver guy is a professor at Hofstra, but I'm not surprised. That's the way of the collegiate world today. I had to put up with it at C.W. Post. I'm lucky I wasn't a student from 2004 to the present. It would have been very frustrating. My last semester was Fall 2003, right before Iraq further deterioriated, and before a certain prison scandal that shall remain nameless. But I digress. Back to cable news now...
