    Two weeks ago former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a lot of heat from the media when he said President Obama doesn't love America during a fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It turns out, many Americans agree with Guiliani's assessment. According to a new Fox News poll, the vast majority of Americans believe the United States is the greatest country in the world, but a smaller majority believe President Obama feels the same way. The new poll also finds the numbers saying Obama is patriotic, honest or a strong leader have all declined in the past few years. More...

The mother has been “charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.” After watching the cell phone footage of the incident, Rivera responded: “First, I’ll talk about the...

    While jousting with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly a few years ago, Jon Stewart proclaimed him “the Mayor of “Bull---- Mountain.’’ But that image is imprecise. Fox News, the cable network beloved of conservatives, is less a mountain than a fortress, or maybe a tank. Firmly in the driver’s seat is O’Reilly, who worked at a Boston TV station and attended Boston University and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. The network’s operational mode is the furthest thing from serene mountaintop remoteness: Day in and day out, Fox girds for ideological battle with what it sees as the...

It all started with this article [link at URL] by David Corn and Daniel Schulman published in Mother Jones on Thursday, in which they detailed how on many occasions over the years, O'Reilly has characterized himself as a veteran of war reporting. Among the quotes they cited are times when O'Reilly said things like "I've reported on the ground in active war zones from El Salvador to the Falklands," and "having survived a combat situation in Argentina during the Falklands War, I know that life-and-death...

    After NBC News suspended anchor Brian Williams for erroneously claiming that he was nearly shot down in a helicopter while covering the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly went on a tear. On his television show, the top-rated cable news anchor declared that the American press isn't "half as responsible as the men who forged the nation." He bemoaned the supposed culture of deception within the liberal media, and he proclaimed that the Williams controversy should prompt questioning of other "distortions" by left-leaning outlets. Yet for years, O'Reilly has recounted dramatic stories about his own...

Rosen made the embarrassing disclosure in a story on the channel’s “Special Report” show hosted by Bret Baier. The alleged al-Qaeda financier, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, is a very close friend of Rupert Murdoch and his family, who control major media companies like News Corp and 21st Century Fox. The latter is now the parent company of the Fox News Channel. Fox News is to be congratulated for reporting...

    MSNBC registered its lowest full-day rating in nearly a decade on Tuesday, a devastatingly low benchmark that shows just how severe the network's decline has become. The liberal cable news network drew an average of 55,000 viewers in the all-important 25-to-54 year-old demo on Tuesday, its lowest full-day rating since July 2005, according to Nielsen ratings provided by an industry source. CNN had nearly three times as many viewers in the demo; Fox News nearly five times as many. That low reflects a more general decline in recent years.

Through his Kingdom Holding , he holds significant stakes in companies including Citigroup C -0.41%, Twitter TWTR +1.28% – and, until recently, News Corporation. The Prince hasn’t sold out completely – he still owns about 1% of the company, as well as a separate 6.6% shareholding in 21st Century Fox Inc which in itself is worth about $1.7 billion – but he previously also held 6.6% of News Corp NWSA 0%, or a total of 13.184 million class B shares.

Yet two prominent Fox News hosts, Chris Wallace and Shepherd Smith, harshly criticized Boehner and Netanyahu on Friday for secretly arranging a Netanyahu speech to Congress that is transparently aimed at undermining President Obama, and set up without the White House's knowledge.

Smith spent much of his on-air news hour waxing poetic about the lunch, which President Obama held in order to lay out his policy proposals before a small group of influential news anchors. But at the end of his broadcast, the Fox anchor pointed out a minor — but almost certainly intentional —...

    Word is now circulating around the Catholic world that conservative hero Gary Sinise, along with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, both publicly professed faithful Catholics, cancelled their appearances at a Legatus Summit at the last minute under pressure from the LGBT crowd. Legatus is the organization of Catholic CEOs founded by pizza billionaire Tom Monaghan to advance the spirituality of Catholic men and women in the higher echelons of American business. The primary work of Legatus and its members is the increased holiness of the members and spreading the gospel within corporate America. Certainly there is a conservative tinge to...

    FTVLive told you yesterday that Fox News and Dish Network had ended their retrans dispute and FNC has returned to the Dish bird. As we predicted, the terms of the new deal weren’t disclosed. However, people familiar with the talks said Dish is paying a significant increase for Fox News, which is one of the most popular networks, not just among news channels but entertainment and sports services as well. According to research firm SNL Kagan, the average monthly fee for Fox News is currently about $1.00 per subscriber. Under terms of the new pact, the price Dish would pay...

    I see that Dish and Fox News have worked out their differences and now Dish subscribers can watch Fox News again. The White House is relieved because, despite protests to the contrary, the reality is that Big Guy gets all his news from Fox.That’s right, since the Big White is a Dish subscriber, they were pretty much cut off from what was going on around the world when Fox went black last month over contract issues with Dish. So that whole kerfuffle about Big Guy not attending the march in Paris? Fox’s fault, for refusing the terms Dish offered.So after...
  • In Middle of Fox News Blackout, Docs Reveal Dish Chairman Donated Thousands to Dems

    One look at the political history of Dish Network founder and Chairman Charles Ergen places the idea that the network dropped Fox News over a simple contract dispute in serious doubt. Since Dec. 20, when the Dish network dropped Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, the former has lost about 90,000 subscribers. The Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph decided to take a look at OpenSecrets documents revealing Ergen’s political donations from last year, which immediately raised some red flags. Ergen donated a total of $64,000 to the Democratic Senatorial campaign Committee, according to the report. As Joseph writes, Ergen’s donating record obviously doesn’t prove he...

    Ypsilanti Township residents Dave and Sue Weber argue a county-run facility is no place to be showing what they consider offensive, right-wing political propaganda. They said they started going to the county's recreation center on Washtenaw Avenue last fall and were dismayed to see Fox News show up on four of the 12 television screens in the cardio area during election season. "In September, when we toured the facility before joining, we didn't notice Fox on at all," Dave Weber said. "But now October comes around, pre-election time, that's when it multiplied onto four screens, four out of the 12...

    The “Fox News Is Stupid and Evil” article is by now its own genre of journalism, albeit one that almost nobody does very well. In the course of attempting to enlighten some not especially bright Democrats earlier this week — hola, @mcspocky! — I went looking through a few of the so-called studies that purport to demonstrate that Fox News viewers are deeply and uniquely misinformed about public affairs. They are mostly horsepucky, as I demonstrated with this assortment of dim-witted accounts of the PunditFact “study” (which is not a study) of disputed Fox News statements, the authors of which...

    How do you say ‘Chutzpah” in Arabic? For that’s the most appropriate word to describe a Hamas-linked organization designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terror organization telling an American news operation to stop talking about jihad. Recently, Sean Hannity’s outstanding frankness has been joined by Bill O’Reilly telling the truth on jihad. And throughout the day, FNC has featured knowledgeable commenters, in addition to CAIR apologists, in a “fair and balanced” presentation - -something CAIR does not want.
