    • Julie did four hours of live coverage, 1am -> 5am. Meanwhile at the ‘new’ MSNBC they used Hollywood hack Lawrence O’Donnell as a news anchor and then aired reruns of earlier coverage through the overnight hours. Lean Forward!

      • Julie, Adam Houseley, Trace Gallagher, and Catherine Herridge have been terrific. Others, too, but can’t remember their names right now.

  1. NPR top goal this morning: protect Muslims. Can’t wait to see how CNN taps down redicalized Islamic slaughter of a Christmas party. The fear the left generates has its own consequences like pouring cold water on “see something, say something”. A man who had been working in the area of the monster’s home said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

    • I know one thing…in a scenario of carnage and death, no one should find themselves hoping that the shooter isn’t someone who can be shoehorned into your ideological camp (conservatives).

      Or loathe to find the shooter is a Muslim because that makes them seem like a bigger problem than those awful Isamophobic Christian conservatives (liberals).

      It’s madness. How have we all been so radicalized?

      Surely, we can compromise enough to stop hating each other. Let’s talk about ways we can toughen gun laws and immigration laws.

      Could we start somewhere? Anywhere? Before we become partisan facsimiles of human beings?

      • We have become radicalized because each side threatens the other with real ramifications. The side that wants to drop their their guard and say, “play ball with me and I’ll play ball with you” will get the bat shoved up their ***es. Republicans are in favor of the one area of gun law change that could really make a change, tightening up mental health laws to prevent easy access to firearms. Liberals are fighting these proposals now making their way through Congress. Other than that, short of repealing the Second Amendment, no law that has been proposed would have made any GOOD difference whatsoever.

        • Repealing the Second Amendment wouldn’t solve anything. Criminals will always find weapons. These terrorists even had a bomb factory in their home.

  2. Today’s most popular links:
    5 Fox tops rivals
    4 to Sandy Hook
    3 Caution prevails
    2 climate pledge
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Lauren Ashburn resurfaces.

  3. What would Zucker campaign on, “the governor’s brother works for me”, “a Lemon in every pot”, or maybe “hey, I moved jobs from Atlanta to NYC”?
