  1. Last night’s Gutfeld show was his best one to date. Hope they are on track now and that better ratings will follow.

      • What is it about e-cigarettes that is controversial?

        Looks like they would be a better thing to be addicted to than tobacky.

        • It’s simple, Cece. It’s the need by some to control others. In this case, they are bullying them over e-cigarettes, which don’t hurt a damn soul. The way I look at it, I don’t smoke, but it is none of my business if others do. But the e-cigarettes have a much reduced health risk. That isn’t enough for the know-it-alls.

  2. Oliver Willis a Media Maters paid troll. I spare with him, but Jake with a one punch knockout.

      • Willis knows me as we discuss diabetes issues outside the ring. He was taken by ambulance once from the White House with low sugar problem. He likes my humor and I his when he isn’t being a pain in the butt troll. I haven’t followed him on Twitter for a while as he is prolific and mostly tedious.

    • hard to blame cable news. to sane people he is an obvious poser, yet millions watch his show. when i talk to people and say what a detriment he is to the party people respond. “why? whats wrong with trump? there is nothing wrong with trump, i agree with him”. so, like we are doomed man.

  3. Lily Langtry was in for Martha. I haven’t been this happy since way back when I was sane.

  4. Something jogged my memory about an odd moment with O’Reilly last week. When he did his bio segment on Bill Hemmer, he talked about when he came to Fox and said when that happened “they teamed you with Martha MacCallum”. Um, no. They teamed him with Megyn Kelly. When Megyn got her own hour Martha replaced her.

    No known connection, but how long has it been since Megyn did a “Kelly File” segment on The Factor?

    • Four weeks. June 8 was the last segment to date.

      O’Reilly jumped from Hemmer’s arrival at FNC to his pairing with Martha MacCallum on America’s Newsroom. That solo show he hosted–which featured Because You Asked, if I recall–and the Megyn Kelly era of America’s Newsroom were glossed over. It’s the perils of a short, edited segment.

  6. Tip of the Day problem (re: U.S. Women’s National [Soccer] Team): The in-game action shown was from last Tuesday’s semifinal match against Germany. The B-roll after that was from after last night’s (yesterday afternoon’s in Vancouver) final.
