  • Hillary Clinton Tells Fox Reporter Ed Henry He can Only ask one Question

    YoungCons ^ | August 28, 2015 | Michael Cantrell
    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is practically imploding right before our eyes as her email scandal continues to unravel and she keeps trying to play it down in hopes she can survive the storm. Given the grilling she’s received from Fox News reporter Ed Henry over the last few weeks, Hillary decided to pull a page out of Donald Trump’s playbook and “handle” the journalist by telling him he’s only entitled to one question. Yes, she really is that pompous. Rather than sounding tough, firm, and confident like Trump did when he righteously manhandled Jorge Ramos, Hillary comes off as...

    A New York Magazine writer and author of the 2014 book about Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, "The Loudest Voice in the Room," said in a recent televised interview the cable station's biggest star, Megyn Kelly, may not be re-engaging in public disputes with presidential hopeful Donald Trump because she doesn't want to hurt her chances to move to a more mainstream network, like CNN. Kelly, on the heels of widespread criticism of her debate night questioning of Trump – after which the billionaire businessman called her a "bimbo" in a tweet – went on what she and Fox officials...
  • Megyn Kelly: The First Casualty in Donald Trump’s ‘Asymmetric’ War on Fox News

    2016 GOP frontrunner and billionaire Donald Trump already won his war with the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly. She’s exposed as having a point of view, rather than being a purely impartial arbiter of news. Now he’s just having fun as a larger war between him and the network’s powers-that-be looms. In exposing Kelly, he’s employed at least parts of an unwritten playbook for political warfare his former, longtime aide–legendary GOP trickster Roger Stone–has laid out mostly informally over the years called “Stone’s Rules.” Stone hasn’t actually published the “Rules” anywhere, though some appear littered throughout his Twitter account and...

Today he told Malzberg that Megyn Kelly wants to go mainstream and is keeping her options open.From the interview: Gabriel Sherman: In the days after the debate all of the emails and messages that FOX News was getting from their viewers were pro-Trump emails. Roger Ailes and his executives at FOX were shocked at the volume of the response. And, they really didn’t know what to do because their audience loves Trump. And...

She’s exposed as having a point of view, rather than being a purely impartial arbiter of news. Now he’s just having fun as a larger war between him and the network’s powers-that-be looms.

    Last night Kelly on her show had two guests, one a weeny gop consultant, and they badmouthed Trump for several minutes. It was AFTER this that Trump made his tweets. You won't hear about the precipitating factor from the media. In other words, Megyn didn't take him on head to head or fearlessly, as she likes to consider herself, and instead hid behind two men, and had them make the offending comments as she sat there innocently nodding in agreement and leading them on. Strong women speak for themselves, and don't need to hide behind men’s trousers. Not fair and...

Overall, this lands Fox as the Clinton family’s 9th largest donor over the course of the family’s political involvement.”

Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected. For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A 21st Century Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter from now on, “Roger will report to Lachlan and James.” “For Ailes,...

In a biting dissent in the Obergefell v.

    Donald Trump and the Fox News Channel are in talks about Trump possibly appearing on Fox on Monday night, according to a source with knowledge of the talks. Trump has been lambasting Fox for days, ever since he was challenged in last week's GOP debate. It is "highly unlikely" Trump would appear at 9 p.m. with host Megyn Kelly, the source said, and that's probably an understatement. Trump has repeatedly and personally insulted Kelly in recent days. But talks are underway about a Trump interview with another prime time host, like Sean Hannity, the source said, adding that nothing had...

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) of Florida was in second place with just 10%.

And if that wasn’t enough, for Canadians in general and Torontonians in particular, the Toronto Blue Jays were home to the Minnesota Twins.

    The first GOP primary debate of the year, hosted by Fox News and moderated by three of their best, kicked off in headline-grabbing style when the moderator team backed candidate Donald Trump into a corner about the possibility of running on a third-party ticket. But the attacks didn’t stop there. Out of the six questions that Trump was asked, most of them were nothing more than thinly veiled attacks in what conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested was a targeted effort by the GOP establishment to slam the brakes on Trump’s momentum. While Limbaugh had reported that there was a...

This is how Megyn Kelly began her non-question, question: "You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” “Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Retorted Trump. “No, it wasn’t,” Argued Megyn -- without anything to backup her assertion -- “Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” So let me get this...

    Trump’s battles with Kelly will probably further burnish the anchorwoman’s reputation as a tough-as-nails television star. The conservative cable news channel has sought to market Kelly as a strong and independent voice. Inside Fox, the view at the end of the debate was that all three moderators — Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace — had fared well, and that Kelly was the stand-out. Some political observers said that Fox’s post-debate coverage seemed tilted against Trump, partly because of a Frank Luntz focus group, convened by Fox and televised immediately after the debate, that had an anti-Trump tone. Trump was...

No, Trump worried about Fox News, and in particular, debate moderator Megyn Kelly. She’d been hammering him all week on her show, and he was certain she was out to get him. He had canceled a Fox News appearance on Monday night, the friend said, in order to avoid her. (Trump’s spokeswoman wouldn’t confirm or deny this.) It turns out Trump was right.

    In last night's Republican debate on Fox News, there were a few moments of tension, most of which featured Donald Trump. However, the big story is that there is no big story. Trump was not his normal bigger-than-life personality, nor was he just another candidate. He and Jeb Bush were polite to each other, although Trump did bump elbows with all three moderators on one occasion each – and also had a pretty testy exchange early with Rand Paul. Rand also had an angry exchange with Chris Christie, and Rand got off a good line about the "big hug with...

    Watching the debate tonight I noticed several thing that demonstrated great bias:1. Opened with hit #1, who will not pledge to support the nominee? They KNEW only Trump.2. Trump calling Rosie names on twitter and are you a misogynist?3. Even whn in Trump's sweet spot of immigration: PROVE Mexican govt is sending their criminals.All in the first 20mins.And never was a single question framed in a way that allowed him to shine.

    Trump reserved his harshest criticism for Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who pressed him on a history of critical and insulting remarks about women, complaining, “I think Megyn behaved very nasty to me.” “I thought it was an unfair question,” he said. “They didn’t ask those questions of anybody else. So I thought it was an unfair question.”

    That was not tacky, that was despicably Unfair! The candidates in the first debate panel were given opportunity to attack Trump, who of course was not on the stage. I wouldn't blame Donald Trump if at his first opportunity to speak tonight, he unloaded on Fox for that little slimy trick, plugged his book for folks to source his policies, and walked off the stage!

    Chris Wallace tapped the black three-ring binder resting on the corner of his desk. “I’ve got some doozies in there,” he said, eyebrow raised provocatively. The unlabeled binder holds the veteran Fox News anchor’s questions for Thursday’s Republican primary debate, for which he will serve as a moderator. Clamped inside it are newspaper clippings, memos to his researcher and outlines of what the hodgepodge of presidential candidates vying to top the GOP field have been saying about the issues and about each other. It has become a primary-season ritual for Wallace, a fixture at Fox News for more than a...

    In an interview with Politico, Fox News hosts Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly, and Chris Wallace revealed they already have a plan if Donald Trump refuses to obey the rules of Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate. “Listen, he’s going to be treated like everybody else,” Baier said. “We’re going to treat every candidate the same. Everybody is going to know all the rules going in; there is going to be a sound at the end of their time — it won’t be a pleasant sound.” “Are we thinking about different scenarios? Sure. Our job is to make sure everybody plays by...
