  1. Megyn’s been named the ADweek News Anchor of the year? The disgraced racist stooges little heads will explode over that for sure.

    Good job for MK this year……hard year for her but she handled it well IMHO.

        • Just curious…….do you watch her show?……..I wonder if it doesn’t bother me………as much because regularly I dont watch……… I dont see her very much…….during my CNN week she was on 2 times in one night……that was a bit much.

          • I never watch, so the snippets I see are all I have to go on. That’s really not enough. Now for Hannity, that’s plenty. I’m pretty firm, however, in my conclusion that Megyn has a lot of courage.

          • They don’t get publically hammered day in and day out by a politician and his followers. She stood up to the abuse. You have to give her that.

          • i do give her that. first time business owners have a govt/seller/buyer/employee/service front to deal with that is simply awesome in it’s scope. just think of what openning a simple muffler shop would entail. i think those are American heros, the guy that gave me my first serious shot was responsible for the lives of hundreds of employees, read families, mortgages, kids. he never went to college started peddling used cars. sorry i think that is pretty darn awesome. hammered. come on man. public really? who do you think business does business with other than the public? you git to my itch spot has i see household survey and labor salary report in converging lines when the household survey should be soaring. people don’t need a stinking job to work. we could use a few self employed heros about now. can’t outsource that work. 100% in your hands.

          • You want to talk heroes? Besides those in the military fighting and dying for their country, and the cops willing to take a bullet to save others, think about the firefighters. It takes a special kind of courage to run into a fire to save a stranger. That is courage. Those are heroes. Not somebody opening a used car lot, or a muffler shop or an adult book store.

          • Well, my husband has to watch her every night. I’m usually in the room on my laptop not 100% paying attention but really get the gist of her and the stories she’s focusing on. Just last night she a bit on about her early years in Chicago and even my husband said “she’s getting kind of full of herself, isn’t she.” I concurred. Since the Roger Ailes thing I have been less than enthused about her. Just my opinion. Anyone lose can love her/hate her as much as they want.

          • I think that she shouldn’t told the Ailes story. It was a clumsy pass that didn’t affect her career.

          • I normally dont watch the “opinion” shows on any network……..however this year Ive been doing so somewhat. Of the big 3 Fox ones I like hers the best……of course since I personally can’t stand Hannity it isn’t much of a race. I’m far from a expert but she has the best guests…..which is the only reason Id watch to being with.

      • When it gets to me, I turn off the sound and gaze into those eyes. I’ve got this thing about pretty white women.

  2. How come when your hometown makes the Facebook newsfeed……..it’s NEVER good news?

    Just once…..I mean come -on.

  3. Glad to see the “exceedingly bright host” working to earn a “Cronkite Award” after getting his first from a Crackerjack box.

  4. A PRIVATE video — titled “Is Barron Trump Autistic? #StopTheBullying” — was posted on YouTube in early November that speculates Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son is autistic. The video, which Rosie O’Donnell PUBLICLY tweeted out, has over three million views. Rosie was once known as “The Queen of Nice”.

    • Golly, was just in NYC for Thsnksgiving. Did dinner with my daughter’s boyfriends parents (very liberal) and if by golly this very subject came up. I said, as respectfully as I could, Rosie and her ilk were FOS and to leave the kid alone. Had to say it 3 times before they changed the subject. Next day, I asked my daughter if there was any blowback regarding my comments from her boyfriend and she said, “he agrees with you”. Whew!

  5. Had to turn Shep off a moment ago. Sometimes he interrupts a guest to repeat something over that he’s already said if the guest hasn’t taken the bait to repeat it themself. Irritating. What’s the point of having a guest?

  6. Obama knows but one tune, “I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those (white working class) voters effectively,” he said. “Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country…”. If only the devil didn’t stop the Lord’s message from reaching the people. Trying to think of last time I watched FNC in a restaurant. Yeah, it was never.

    • I’ve seen FNC on restaurant TV’s, muted with closed-captioning. The one I recall has multiple muted closed-caption TVs, each with a different channel. I usually don’t watch any. Too busy eating.

    • He has this weird obsession about Fox. Guess he was taught at an early activist age about being able to pull the wool over people’s eyes with the MSM being on your side. Now, his methodology to manipulate people has changed and he’s ticked off.

    • I have prayed and hoped for the best for Pres. Obama for years.

      He turned out to be nothing more than a liberal activist, and he’ll be going back to that soon without the intrusions he so resents that pit Western interests against nations he believes we have wronged.

      Just go.

    • Pres. Obama : “The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It’s making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs.”

      http://www.mediaite.com/online/obama-on-dems-inability-to-reach-voters-part-of-it-is-fox-news-in-every-bar-and-restaurant/

      Evidently, the president thinks that a broad expanse of opinion and info isn’t a good thing.

      Why? Because it’s all settled science, uniformity defeats divisiveness, and…btw…we’re too dumb to know the difference between real news and clickbait.

      Oh, and fake news Fox is out there…sigh…

    1 Hogue: Impartial CNN anchor’s expletive exemplifies ‘skin in the game’.

  8. I can’t believe Geraldo was saying such nice things about Castro on Tucker’s show. Really disappointed in Geraldo.

    • I encourage you to use google and learn all about the NYTs and their relations with Joe Stalin. Geraldo has bought into the dream no historical firing squad orgies can counter.

  9. So the ISIS inspired Ohio State car-crusher, knife-slasher was “devotedly religious”. What was he worshipping that didn’t turn him away from such behavior? Why if your not a butcher should you be allowed to buy a butcher knife? We need some common sense knife-safety laws.
