    Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6 prime-time event, removing a requirement that participants reach at least 1 percent in polling. The change amounts to an insurance policy for candidates who were in danger of being disqualified from the vital first debate based on low polls – Carly Fiorina, former New York Gov. George Pataki and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).The announcement by Michael Clemente, Fox News Executive Vice President, News, means that all 16 announced candidates will qualify for Cleveland — either the...

    One idea that came up was to urge three leading candidates — Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor; Mr. Walker; and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida — to band together and state that they would not participate in any debate in which Mr. Trump was present, using his refusal to rule out a third-party bid as a pretext for taking such a hard line. The thinking, according to a Republican involved in the conversations, was that the lesser-funded prospects who have been eclipsed by Mr. Trump would follow suit, and the TV networks airing the debates would be forced to...

    I'm feeling a bit Onion-y today and consequently I must offer a explanation–a theory–about what we are seeing these days in this hallucinogenic political season. Now that Donald Trump has taken the lead in the latest Fox poll, it’s time to call this perverse reality show for what it really is. Trump is working for his friend Hillary Clinton’s landslide election.

It wasn't that long ago when Fox News called them the most liberal organization in the country and that's still true to this day. Add to that, the other polling organizations which they will use to help in their selections of who'll be worthy to run are ABC News, NBC/Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Monmouth and possibly Public Policy Polling. These organizations and ,by extension, Fox News and are responsible for keeping Bush as number one.

The former President of Mexico -- who is also quite the successful business man -- unloaded on The Donald Wednesday night as he left The Palm in L.A. Fox went all in against Trump and his recent comments about Mexico, telling our photog (in Spanish), "He's acted like an idiot ... I don't know how he's made so much money, he doesn't deserve it." Fox had more to say, including a suggestion on what Trump SHOULD do with his riches.

The figure is far higher than initially reported. While the payments to Sidney Blumenthal may not reflect any apparent conflict of interest, his work with Brock's liberal advocacy and media groups was a focus of his high-profile deposition on Tuesday before the House Benghazi committee. Republicans' rationale for the questioning was that his financial and political...

The exact nature of Nova Vulpeculae 1670 has always remained a mystery.

The Washington Post's Paul Farhi sees a grim future for the industry. He argues that cable news outlets are pretty much where newspapers were a decade ago: their audience is aging, their medium is being disrupted by new technologies, and the next generation of viewers is developing habits and preferences that they're poorly placed to serve. (This is probably a good moment to note that I'm a contributor to MSNBC.) The networks may still...

Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor.

    American Thinker ^ | Lloyd Marcus
    For crying out loud, Cruz simply trumpeted traditional principles and values that Americans have celebrated since the Republic's founding: American exceptionalism, liberty, freedom, hard work, God, and country.  The problem is that without even realizing it, many have succumbed to the left successfully tainting their thinking, lowering the nation's behavioral bar, and forcing political correctness down our throats.  So when a Ted Cruz comes along, his message sounds edgy to those hearing it for the first time.  And yet I believe that many will be drawn instinctively to it. Why?  Because conservatism connects with our higher self/spirit.  It inspires people...

    "Well, look, there's nothing like the warm embrace of the mainstream media," Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox New Tuesday night, after various liberal media outlets bashed him as a "scary," "dangerous," "slimy" no-compromiser with a "hardline conservative message." For starters. The day after announcing his presidential ambitions, Cruz told Megyn Kelly one of his "favorite comments" came from the New York Times, which said that Cruz could not be swayed by the Washington elites, who hate him. "And I have to admit, my immediate thought was, holy cow, do I have to disclose that to the Federal Election Commission (the...

    Fox is suing a San Francisco digital music distribution company because of its name. According to TMZ, Twentieth Century Fox Television filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against EMPIRE Distribution over the name it shares with Fox's popular television series "Empire." Founded in 2010, EMPIRE Distribution releases digital music from urban artists including leading hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg, T.I. and Kendrick Lamar. Fox's fictional Empire Records releases urban music including hip-hop and R&B, but in a real life twist, songs from the series are actually available for sale. Columbia Records released songs from each episode for the duration of the...

    “He thinks he is going to do a Nixon to China. He is the man who is going to develop the entente, the understanding, the condominium with Iran to run the Middle East. We will join with them. We are going to recognize their presence, their dominance in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, and now in Yemen as that will be the reward for having cut a deal with us on nuclear weapons.” “That’s impossible, O’Reilly said, “because if that ever were to come true, we would alienate all of the Sunni nations. Saudi Arabia, the Emirates…” “But that’s exactly...

    Draw your own conclusions about how much confidence you can generate about the truthfulness of the administration's responses FOX News Sunday, and its continuing attempts to actually perform live-action news gathering, is often attacked by disappointed members of the Irate Right as well as the Indignant Left by the outcomes of their various interviews of the glitterati among the members of the Washington, D.C. elites. The Irate Right should recognize that, generally when Chris Wallace interviews anyone who represents (directly or indirectly) Barack Hussein Obama, the result can be very informative. Not from the video tape, but from the transcript...

    Mickey Kaus resigned from The Daily Caller after its editor, Tucker Carlson, pulled down a column he wrote critical of Fox News. Who is Mickey Kaus? He is a liberal, who has written for Newsweek, The Washington Monthly, and used to blog at Salon under the title "Kausfiles." In 2004, he expressed dissatisfaction with John Kerry, but still endorsed him and contributed to his campaign. Amazingly, despite being a graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law School, he seems to have avoided having every molecule of common sense wrung out of him, as evidenced by the reporting he has done on...
