  • Judge rejects lawsuit against Fox by ex-host Andrea Tantaros

    A judge threw out a New York lawsuit Friday against Fox News by former host Andrea Tantaros, citing her “vague, speculative and conclusory allegations.” The lawsuit U.S. District Judge George Daniels dismissed had alleged Fox tried to torment Tantaros after she complained about sexual harassment. The lawsuit claimed Tantaros was viewed as a threat by Fox executives after she declined an offer of more than $1 million to remain silent. The suit said Tantaros suspected her emails and telephone conversations were being monitored after she revealed personal information in calls or emails that were then referenced by others in cruel...

    Variety ^ | 16 May 2018 | Brian Steinberg
    Veteran programming executive Suzanne Scott was named chief executive of the Fox News, part of the continuing reorganization of 21st Century Fox as it prepares to sell the bulk of its assets to Walt Disney Co. She will report to Lachlan Murdoch and Rupert Murdoch, who will lead the recalibrated parent company. Fox News already generates a substantial part of 21st Century Fox’s finances and will perhaps be the largest financial contributor to the parent corporation should the proposed sale proceed. The elder Murdoch will continue to work as executive chairman of Fox News, which includes the operations of the...

    Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz says he has finished his long-awaited report detailing his review of the FBI and DOJ’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential election. In a letter to members of Congress on Wednesday, Horowitz does not say when the review will be officially released to the FBI, DOJ and congressional committees. But the inspector general said he has provided a draft report to the Department and the FBI, and requested that they review it to identify any information that should be protected from disclosure. A portion of the report on McCabe had already been released...
  • Oh My: Sinclair Broadcast Group Making A Play For Hannity?

    I say this no more than half-jokingly: The only proper replacement for Hannity at 9 p.m. on Fox would be Trump broadcasting live from the White House for an hour, riffing on whatever he wants to riff on. A nightly national rally, five nights a week.Well, four nights. Hosts often get Fridays off, especially during the summer. Jared could sit in for him.Hannity is supposedly signed at Fox through 2020, which means one of two things is true. It could be that Sinclair is thinking long-term here. They’re plotting to build a national competitor to Fox but it won’t...

    Bill O’Reilly is in talks to head back to cable news in his old 8 p.m. slot, but this time at Newsmax TV, sources exclusively tell Page Six. Newsmax is also chasing other former Fox News talent — Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have been approached to join as hosts of hourlong shows in prime time. Bolling already has a deal with CRTV for a digital show. Adding to the Newsmax mix could be former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who we’re told is set to star on a politically focused late-night panel show. An insider told Page...

    In a bygone age, during the days of Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus Press Secretary Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump was someone very different – someone who watched (gasp!) CNN and MSNBC. At least, that’s according to new reporting from New York Magazine‘s Olivia Nuzzi, who writes that White House officials concocted a plan to keep the volatile president on track by changing his diet – his television diet, that is. Trump would reportedly work himself into a tizzy watching Morning Joe and New Day, tweeting all manner of disgruntled miscellany before an 11 A.M. briefing, in which he would review the...

    .The call to the White House comes after ten o’clock most weeknights, when Hannity is over. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Sean Hannity broadcasts live at 9 p.m. on Fox News, usually from Studio J in midtown, where the network is headquartered, but sometimes from a remote studio on Long Island, where he was raised and now lives. All White House phone numbers begin with the same six digits: 202-456. Hannity calls the White House switchboard, a number listed publicly, and reaches an operator. The operator refers to a list of cleared callers, a few dozen friends and family members...

    Donald Trump Jr. is in the process of divorcing his wife, Vanessa Trump, and reportedly has a new girlfriend. According to Page Six, the 40-year-old Trump has been dating Fox News 'The Five' host Kimberly Guilfoyle, 49, for the past few weeks. The new couple is “having a great time,” a source told Page Six. “While he wants to respect the privacy of his family, he is getting divorced, and he enjoys Kimberly’s company,” the source added. However, people have been pointing out on social media that Guilfoyle bears a strong resemblance to Trump’s stepmother, Melania, 48. Kimberly, 49, is...

    The Hill ^ | May 11,2018 | BY AVERY ANAPOL -
    A former Fox News military analyst will not be booked on Fox Business again after saying that torture “worked” on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The network will not book Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney again, a spokesperson confirmed to The Hill. McInerney made the comment during an appearance on Fox Business to discuss President Trump’s CIA director nominee Gina Haspel, who McCain has fiercely opposed over her work at a CIA black site prison. "Sen. John McCain said he's not going to endorse Haspel also in part because she believes in torture, that she thinks it works, even though she laid...

    The great things about liberals is that even though most have never run a business, they all know exactly how businesses should be run.  It's as if all those courses they took at Amherst or Yale on women's studies, art history, and neo-colonialism gave them an intuitive sense for market forces, and exactly how much businesses should pay employees, exactly how much in taxes businesses should pay, and how to run every aspect of their companies. It's hardly surprising, then, to find an exposé in the Washington Post focusing on Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.  Hannity spent millions of dollars to...

    A spokesperson for Fox News said they have banished the guest who said torture “worked” on Sen. John McCain, calling him a “songbird” for his five years spent a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Air Force veteran and former military analyst Thomas McInerney caused massive outrage yesterday for his interview on Fox Business Network where he bashed McCain for his opposition to Gina Haspel‘s nomination as CIA Director. McCain opposes Haspel because of her history overseeing the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, and when McInerney spoke to Charles Payne about this, he bashed the Arizona senator. “The fact is John...

    During a discussion with host Charles Payne on Fox Business Network, retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney was asked to opine on the criticism faced by Gina Haspel, who was grilled on Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee in her pursuit of confirmation for the top job at the CIA. Having played a role in the CIA’s interrogation/torture program during the 2000s, Haspel waffled a bit as Democratic senators pushed her on the morality of the methods, which are no longer in force. McInerney was riding with Trump on this one: “It’s very simple to me, Charles. If we...

    The least-watched prime time program on Fox News drew more viewers than its most-watched counterpart on CNN. “Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream” drew an average of 1.5 million viewers in the month of April, according to Nielsen ratings reported by the Conservative Tribune. CNN’s most-watched show, “Anderson Cooper 360,” had an average audience of 1.1 million and placed a distant 24th among cable programs. Several shows in Fox’s morning and daytime lineup also outperformed “AC360,” including “America’s Newsroom,” “Fox & Friends,” “Outnumbered,” “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” “Happening Now,” “Shepard Smith Reporting,” “Outnumbered Overtime” and “Daily Briefing with...

    Fox News host Neil Cavuto delivered a closing monologue Thursday questioning President Donald Trump’s habit of calling news stories “fake news” while the President lies frequently and leaves false facts uncorrected. “How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one that keeps muddying the waters?” Cavuto asked. “I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp.”

    Iran Bulletin ^ | 2 May 18 | Christopher Holton
    On 1 May, Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel interviewed retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor on Fox News about Iran’s relations with the U.S. Macgregor endorsed the horribly flawed Iran nuclear deal and essentially inferred that the U.S. is but a puppet for Israel and Saudi Arabia. Disappointingly, Carlson made no effort to challenge Macgregor’s statements and contributed with some straw man arguments of his own that appeared to back up what Macgregor was saying. The straw men start to appear at the :45 mark of the 5 minute video below when Carlson asks the question of Macgregor, “Is it in...
