    I was already furious with the ravings of Shepherd Smith after our president's press conference last week, but at least Shepherd was respectful of the office. This chump, Bob Beckel is not, AND NEVER WILL BE. For those of you who missed it, this tough guy, who continues his "dry drunk" repeatedly referred to our president as "Comrade Trump".

"But when he said that the fake news media is not my enemy, it's the enemy of the American people, I believe that crosses an important line."

    Shepard Smith, a Fox News anchor, whose job is to report the news, instead went off, unhinged, attacking President Trump because Trump criticized CNN reporter Jim Acosta.  Evidently, the news media boys believe they can attack Trump, but when Trump responds, then it is an attack on the First Amendment.  They cannot handle being criticized. Smith said: It's crazy what we're watching every day.  It's absolutely crazy.  He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as [if] we're some kind of fools for asking a question.  Really?  Your...

    Following President Donald Trump‘s press conference on Thursday, in which he referred to reports of his campaign’s contact with Russia as — you guessed it — “fake news,” Shepard Smith delivered a scathing response. The Fox News anchor — one of the few voices at the conservative network willing to take Trump to task — began by defending rival CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose attempts to ask Trump about the recent White House leaks turned into 10 minutes of the president attacking him, as well as the entire news organization. “He’s an accomplished reporter — a guy I’ve never met,...

    CNN conflated two statistics this week to falsely suggest that its ratings were equivalent to Fox News' during last week's coverage of President Donald Trump's inauguration. The episode started when Trump on Tuesday congratulated Fox News on Twitter for "being number one in the inauguration ratings." "They were many times higher than FAKE NEWS @CNN," he wrote. CNN's public relations team responded to Trump's tweet, citing cumulative numbers from Nielsen Media Research. Cumulative numbers measure audience reach, while ratings — the statistic Trump referred to — measure the average number of people watching a given program. "According to Nielsen cumulative...

And Carlson is good on TV, appealing and palpably comfortable in the role, which probably means new viewers are more likely to stick with him than they would a newbie host who’s less self-assured.The question really is this: If you’re a Fox News right-winger...

    The Megyn Kelly story is about best laid plans going awry—ironically awry. She bargained to be the biggest voice of the dominant news channel in America — and, as well, the best paid on-air personality in the history of television news. Instead, she’s become merely a contender among the knives-out egos in the contested (and ever dwindling) territory of network news—and at a steep discount to the brass-ring salary she might have had. The Murdochs, father and sons, thought Kelly was going to be their way of cleansing Fox of Roger Ailes and his brand of diss-the-elites conservatism—and of letting...

    Yesterday morning, Fox News announced Tucker Carlson will be taking Megan Kelly’s 9 PM EST time slot. Kelly announced earlier this week she would be finishing out her contract with Fox and be heading to NBC. Her NBC offer includes a daytime show, a late-Sunday news program, and various political commentary opportunities. ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ aired in mid-November and has already made history with 3.7 million viewers tuning in for its debut. Timing is everything and Carlson rode the #MAGA train to the best time slot on the most popular cable television network.

    Four years ago I posted about the "McLean Stevenson Effect" which you can read HERE. Basically, McLean Stevenson starred on the hit series M*A*S*H.

    On changes at FOX. Important note: it’s been a tumultuous year at FOX. It’s no secret I don’t agree with aspects of their seemingly new agenda wherein independent conservative commentators were axed to make room for more partisan talking heads, as if the airwaves aren’t bloated enough already with lapdogs bloviating daily tired leftist talking points. However, smart people run FOX – I have great respect for many of the individuals I was privileged to work for – and their apparently experimental political shift will probably pay off handsomely, whilst opening doors for new, refreshing, competing news outlets. So it’s...

    Fox’s choice of conservative stalwart Tucker Carlson to replace trend-bucking news star Megyn Kelly is a telling pick — a rightward shift back to what the channel’s viewers are used to. When I called up Al Tompkins yesterday at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in Florida, he quipped: “Sure is a lot of white guys in the evening, huh?”
