Outnumbered Gets Tense After Herman Cain Claims ‘There is No Rampant Injustice in America’

With the ongoing debate over the NFL protests of the National Anthem (and racial prejudice) becoming more notable wedge issue for President Donald Trump, Fox News’ Outnumbered got in on the action Tuesday. Herman Cain, the former GOP presidential candidate and King of Shucky Ducky, joined the show as the day’s “one lucky guy” to impart his thoughts. While Cain — a self-made millionaire — is certainly an impressive figure who went through his share of racial prejudice on his way to his success, he made a pretty astonishing declaration on the topic of Colin Kaepernick’s protests and the state of racial affairs in America. Remarking on Hillary Clinton’s comments on the protests, Cain said:
First of all, what Hillary said made absolutely no sense because if you go back to what Kaepernick first said, he said, and I quote — I saw it on video Continue reading "Outnumbered Gets Tense After Herman Cain Claims ‘There is No Rampant Injustice in America’"

Despite 18 Months of Turmoil, Fox News Still Manages to Dominate Cable News Ratings

  When last week’s quarterly cable news ratings came out, no one really batted an eye. As is almost always the case, there was something in the ratings which gave each of the major cable news outlets reason to brag. And as has been the case for as long as almost anyone can remember, Fox News was, by far, the most watched of the three. Normally that’s not newsworthy. But given the massive change and transition the network gone through? It’s well worth noting. No cable news outlet has had a more turbulent past year-and-a-half than Fox News. But they appear to have successfully transitioned at both an executive and programming level — without losing their lead position. According to Nielsen Media Research, the Fox News primetime lineup outpaced CNN and MSNBC in the third quarter of this year — in both total viewers and the advertiser-coveted A25-54 demo. Hannity Continue reading "Despite 18 Months of Turmoil, Fox News Still Manages to Dominate Cable News Ratings"

NRA Spox Dana Loesch Is Moving After Her Family Received Threats: This Underscores ‘Why I Carry’

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch is moving out of her home after she and her family have received threats from numerous gun control advocates. “It’s difficult to have an open house and sell your house conventionally when you’re still in it and you have a security threat- a security issue as well,” Loesch began. The conservative radio talk show host told Martha MacCallum that she used the #MeToo trend that dominated social media to share her story, posting a picture of her family’s belongings in garbage bags.

Sen. Chris Murphy Blasts Health Care Executive Order: Trump ‘Put a Gun to the Head of Our Constituents’

Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, created a vivid, cutthroat description of President Donald Trump’s new health care executive order — likening the policy to shoving a firearm in the face of American voters. The new policy, which kills federal payouts to insurers, was dubbed by Murphy as “health care arson” during an appearance on Fox News Sunday today. The junior Democrat senator serves on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and has been one of the loudest voices in advocating against the GOP’s attempts at Obamacare repeal. Murhpy’s full comment went as follows:
“[Trump] is literally setting the entire health care system on fire — just because the president is upset that the United States Congress won’t pass a repeal bill that is Continue reading "Sen. Chris Murphy Blasts Health Care Executive Order: Trump ‘Put a Gun to the Head of Our Constituents’"

Fox News’ MediaBuzz Briefly References the Network’s Own Scandals During Weinstein Coverage

Fox News’ coverage of the Harvey Weinstein scandal has been somewhat notable in the past week, given the network’s recent history. And it was briefly addressed during Fox News’ MediaBuzz this morning. Roger Ailes left Fox News after sexual harassment claims and Bill O’Reilly parted ways with Fox after the harassment claims against him piled up. (Sean Hannity, who has been slamming liberal moral hypocrisy over Weinstein, recently hosted O’Reilly’s big return to the network.) Howard Kurtz opened MediaBuzz today talking about Weinstein, especially the media angles, given the serious questions surrounding NBC News allegedly spiking Ronan Farrow‘s report. Fox News contributor and Townhall.com political editor Guy Benson noted the Weinstein response from late night hosts in particular, and in his comments he referenced Fox News itself:
“One element of this story that I’ve been fascinated by is the late night comedians who jumped all Continue reading "Fox News’ MediaBuzz Briefly References the Network’s Own Scandals During Weinstein Coverage"

Tucker Carlson Slams ‘Corrupt’ NBC News For Burying Weinstein Story: They’re ‘Lying’

On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson went after NBC News for burying the Harvey Weinstein scandal. “Many powerful people knew what Harvey Weinstein was doing and not only ignored his crimes but actively took his side against his many victims,” Carlson began. “It’s a long list, but at the very top of that list is NBC News.” Carlson noted that their reporter Ronan Farrow had the story months ago, but the network “killed” his investigation. He then called out NBC News president Noah Opperheim for saying Farrow’s story “wasn’t ready.” “Let’s be clear — NBC is lying,” Carlson declared. The Fox News host went through a list of assertions from Opperheim and NBC News, ranging from how they “encouraged” Farrow to report the story to how his story was “not the one they saw” when they passed on it. He played the exchange between Farrow and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Continue reading "Tucker Carlson Slams ‘Corrupt’ NBC News For Burying Weinstein Story: They’re ‘Lying’"
