Oh, brother. What could Kucinich possibly contribute. Was Pee-Wee Herman or Chumlee (Pawnstars) not available?

Of course Kucinich the rabid leftist Kook is going to be made to look like a mainstream Democrat and at the same time the media will make moderate Republicans look like extremists, it has been their meme every since America elected a radical Marxist as President. The slow drip of liberalism is quickly becoming a torrential flood.

Hey Dennis how does it feel to have sold out for a ride on AF1 during the health-care debate?

Actually, among the rational moments, he will make a fool of himself.

There are many here who long for a Conservative net work. The plain fact is, there are not enough viewers to provide the commercial support required to do the job.

Fox News presents Dennis to show the ridiculous other side.

Disagree. More than enough potential viewers, but the ad buys would not be there because of the metrosexual advertising agencies and media buyers. Cable and satellite operators wouldn't be inclined to air the channel unless it were free. Probably not even then. And it's hard to make a dollar when you're giving it away for free.

Along with Geraldo, Karl Rove, and Hannity, here is another great reason not to watch Fox. Fox is a joke. They spew the same government propaganda as the other state run media networks. Burn your TV. Dont believe the lies they feed you.

I used to watch FOX in the evening. I no longer do. Dennis will not compel me to change my stance, nor will it make any lefty watch FOX.

So, FOX will lose in the long run.

That is rationalization.

If there were enough viewers, the net work would exist.

Roger Ailes knows what he is doing and has produced the most conservative product economically possible. There can be no doubt about his conservatism.

used ot watch FNC all the time, infact the only channel I would watch but then it got too much with Megyn Kelly and her pal the homo activist media matters dike called Sally Khon, or Kohn.
Hannity is nothing to me anymore, he is another who is supposed to be conservative and yet cannot mention at all social conservative issues.

Why is it that our side will not talk conservatives social issues, things like family and children doing better with marriage, normal marriage I mean.

The left have silenced so many on our side and Hannity wailing on all the time the talking points from Rush or Levin got boring as did his blue collar for a few weeks.

Gretchen Carlson, BOY, is she dopey, thinks the MI6 is M16 for the British spy service, her harping on about a easy bake oven for her boy at aged 7, he saying she now know what she will do Christmas day with the kids because she interviewed an actor for parental guidance movie, her always harping on about the dopey Miss America comp and now she asked why can;t obama just pass an order banning certain guns and mags

Geraldo, Colmes beckel, hell is that awful show still on called the 5.

I might have got bored every now and again with Beck but at least he got protests going, informed us of the left and their corruption etc and we now get the 5.

Yeah; right.

I quit watching Fox News when they swung Left....what I've seen, can't be unseen, and name-dropping never impresses me at all.

Being the "least Left-biased" doesn't cut it, with me.

I wish I could find enough people, talent and $500 million to start a conservative news network that had conservatives arguing with each other on how to be more conservative. Of course, for some balance, some libertarians could be on shows.

FoxNews increasing disappoints.

Wow, I have to agree with that whole post. Grinchin Carlson has become sickening in the last few months.

I like Doocey, but Grinchin’ always disses the guys and sits around with a know it all attitude and a smirk. My husband and myself yell when she speaks. That is the cue we need to quit FOX & Friends.

FOX and Grinchin are about to be the past in my morning.

It used to be a good show. I am done with it!

That Sally woman gets the off button on my remote. FOX is on it’s way out.

While I have no use for his politics, in a way I believe Kucinic is a decent guy. As far as I know he has always stuck to his principles (warped as they seem to me). He is also one of the few to leave congress without becoming a multimillionaire. I still don’t want to watch him, but I think he does deserve this much credit.

I had satellite tv for decades because of the instant availability of news as it happened. There used to be some pretty decent programming. However, for the psst few years I’ve wondered why I continued to pay out the nose for a dwindling number of shows that had any semblance of intelligent thought. Finally, FOX was the only reason I kept it. A few weeks ago I realized that FOX was, indeed appeared to be, trying to rival the msm for inane, irrelevent banter and political correctness. I also realized that I was helping pay for the spread of Liberal tripe much more than supporting common sense. So I now have no tv service at all. Some of my friends acted as if I had sold my car and bought a horse and buggy. I now get my news via the internet and listen to Conservative talk radio. I bought dvds and music for myself and my grandchildren. It has been positively liberating and enlightening and I am better informed than ever before.

I did all this before I even heard about “Al” Jazeera, the baby momma show or little rodent Dennis being invited on FOX. Needless to say, I’m glad I made the move. I would advise anyone to assess the value of the programming that’s coming into their homes. You may be a little shocked at what even the Family Package is feeding your kids and grandkids if you take the time to watch. I know I was.

That makes sense.
This pick may be good for ratings.
If he performs as expected he should be a good source of controversies.
And he has his lefty fans of course, he should bring some of them to watch. In the process they may learn something.

have you seen her harp on about women vs men and this women make better cooks etc.
She moans about PC but then is quick to be PC herself about women.
She is a flake of the highest order, how Doocy puts up with her I don;t know and as for her Miss America comp, WOW, what a ditz, again today she was promoting it.

I’ve now basically given up on that show too because of her but was it me or did she seem more quiet than usual as if she had an argument with someone before her show?

She did not look comfortable my wife said when that tall good looking younger blond English woman was on and WTH is it with ehr dresses she has bene wearing, today my wife said was a page from the decades and is there a law in NY City which stop women from wearing long loose skirts?

As for her anti gun rants lately, WTH she needs to read the constitution.

To think this ditz got her break by being a ditz and gets paid very good for being a ditz.

Also remember when she said why do people need these kind of guns and my reply to her was, why do you need that big house over 3,000sq ft, why does your boy which you dry still after gving him a bath at aged 7 need an easy bake oven .

No reply from her.

See when she asked who is the biggest liar and the English woman said Clinton and I think it was Doocy which said we’ve had a lot of mail saying the same thing LOL

“Contributor” usually implies a net positive.

In that case, he won’t be “contributing” until he leaves.

I would argue that you are not interested in news but in right wing propaganda to sooth your anxiety. A CNN like purveyor of conservative propaganda pablum is not economically viable.

Once again, everything you say is true. I was wondering if it was just me and my husband, but I am sick of this woman. The only way to get rid of her is to quit listening to FOX and Gretchen.

I also notice that she is usually an ass when a good looking woman is on the show. Her jealousy is written all over her snarky attitude.

Gawd, she is an obviously catty witch. What she did to Hank Jr was about the worst treachery I have seen from her. He was a guy who lauded that stinky witch in a song.

There is stuff out there on on the net that she had an affair a while back. LOL
