  1. You guys remember Tomi Lahren? She was the girl on video that talked about Obama that went viral. Wonder if Roger Ailes hired her? Just saw her tweet that she ended her show saying something new is coming and just this morning she showed up on FOX & Friends

    • She’s left the near-insivible One America News. I have a feeling they were upset that she did so because I tried to watch one of her youtube videos to see whether I could figure out what was going on and it had been removed due to a copyright claim for her former network. If I had to guess, I’d say she’s going to take a post with the Trump campaign.

      • There was an article on how One America News was beating alot of the newer networks in ratings like Fusion etc.. & they are only on 1 cable station. Hmm, her videos were removed due to copywrite claims from her former network? Then it looks like she left on bad terms. After the viral video looks like someone came in & scooped her up, could be Roger Ailes =P

        • I’ve seen that channel , it looks little low cost , most of their day is just plain news with a couple opinion shows . Seen Tomi’s show a few times she may have been seen and picked by someone.

    • I can’t view the video above .. is says “content unavailable” .. probably because I am outside of the US.
      Nagin is in jail .. and Shep spoke at the Newseum Wednesday and he said then , that Nagin didn’t send the buses to evacuate poor people…and it cost people their lives. I remember seeing Many yellow buses, just parked up nearby ,which could and should have been used to evacuate the people who had no means to leave NOLA before the storm hit.

  2. Neuhauser: Shepard Smith opens up on Katrina, Ray Nagin, and more.
    Shep’s credibility and competence took a big drop yesterday with his interview of Yahoo’s Oliver Knox on how great the economy really is. it is not just because Yahoo is left, and Knox is further left, it is the utter denial of economic reality the USA is facing. denial you hear in Obama folks talking about the need for a “3RD term”. ok, so don’t listen to right winger economists, read Obama donor’ Zuckerman’s wall street journal piece today. note that there are 822,000 fewer full time jobs today than pre-Obama. google CBO unfunded liability charts for the last 8 years and note the upward death incline.

    Shep and Knox with straight faces talked about how good the economy is and that we dummies cannot see it. Shep seems to be a nice guy, but that interview left him looking clueless.

    so no way i click on him and his comments about Nagin or anything else after that. hey Fox, how did Knox get on your station? he was brought on as an expert, not an opinion maker. ya gotta be kidding me. look at the interview, it is posted on fox, and it was not supposed to be a joke.

  3. Charlie Rose filling in for Scott Pelly on the CBS EVENING NEWS. Hardest working man in show biz. Well, now that James Brown is dead.

      • Seventy-six days after his death, the Godfather of Soul was finally laid to rest on Beech Island, South Carolina. He was buried in a crypt at the home of his daughter, Deanna Brown Thomas. The Rev. Al Sharpton presided over the burial. Savoir-Faire is everywhere!
        Hard to get a guy buried when he has six wives and twenty kids, give or take.

        • I would make a joke about Sharpton looking like the Crypt Keeper, but it would be in poor taste, so I won’t.

      • I don’t know if you watched part 4, but those cubs get into everything in the yard and their mama won’t let them back into the water.

        She wants the whole pool for herself.

        • my dog reacted that way after her pups got weaned. She would grab them by the tail and pull them away if they ran to me to get petted.

  4. This is CNN, CNN , CNN , CNN, CNN , WITH CNN’s Chris Cuomo on CNN , stay tuned next for CNN Tonight on CNN on CNN incase you forgot the name ,CNN call now.
