  1. It is interesting how Martha still considers herself a temporary host at 7, and Shannon Bream still says she’s filling in for Martha. Shannon covered the Supreme Court pick, but that’s something she could still do as a host. I don’t see how Martha moves from 7 or Shannon moves from 9 a.m. For that matter, I wonder why Fox hasn’t named Heather Nauert the host of the 2 p.m. show.

    • Martha’s show is scheduled for only the first 100 days. I still would like to see Trish Regan given a tryout though Martha is doing an acceptable job.

      • The last time FNC did that, Alisyn Camerota went to CNN when Ailes brought in Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Lahren is younger and a lot less established. I don’t think the FNC women would stand for such a move.

      • If they were going to get an opinion host, I think they would go from inside like Perino or Kimberly for example.

          • as is stirewalt. what amazes me is i see nothing in her background that exposed her to the study of Classical Rhetoric yet she conceptualizes communication and its consequences as well as anyone i have ever listened to other than Dominic LaRusso. Not something you are born with.

    • Well I don’t think they have settled on if the show permanent or not since it’s still called first 100 Days; it might like her test.

  2. Aren’t people who are complaining about how Trump is treating CNN the same disgraced fools who thought Obama doing the exact same thing to Fox News was great but didnt go far enough?

    Why yes they are…..hypocrites.

  3. Wow…..the new Quinnipiac University.poll says that 60% of Independent voters dont think the media is honest…..thats gotta hurt.

  4. On The Five Greg Gutfeld said that Red Eye’s Andy Levy knows Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both went to Columbia University and launched a newspaper there. Gutfeld joked that Andy must feel so terrible about himself because his classmate was nominated for the Supreme Court and he, Andy, is just the ombudsman for RE! BTW, Andy will be on Tucker’s show this evening.

  5. Today’s most popular links:
    5 leaving (MS)NBC
    4 not providing
    3 Flashback
    2 own worst enemy
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 What’s in store for the most watched female in all cable news?

  6. IN the wake of violence at Berkeley to shut down a speech from a gay Jewish Brit, we get this:

    “FOX getting the Trump supporters are victims of intolerant liberals script ready after alt-right goon has to cancel speech.”

    Now who would be totalitarian enough to support censorship by violence? (It’s getting cold in here.)

    • I thought the back peddling was even better:

      “Of course I don’t condone the violence however it may not be a good idea to book an alt-right Trumper to speak there.”

      1st Berkeley students invited him………and I guess the disgraced racist is now against people of color giving speeches anywhere in the south……OH wait…..that sound right already.
