  1. Good on Piers for speaking up about the massacre of Christians in Egypt.
    Is it just me or has he become more sane since getting canned by CNN?

    • Overnight ratings (midnight to 6am) usually aren’t published regularly. I’ll see if I can find out anything though I’m not optimistic about being successful.

  2. What will get me to change a cable news channel faster than anything:
    1) news story is presented
    2) anchor introduces a liberal and a conservative flack — likely as not, I’ve never seen before
    3) they each spit out talking points and argue unpleasantly
    4) click

  3. Another site is obsessed with O’Reilly commercials details, I wonder if their source is from a FNC competitor.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 litmus test
    4 is bogus
    3 first female CFO
    2 yammers about CNN
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 As boycott spreads, O’Ratings skyrocket.

  5. I knew what Spicer was getting at with his “Hitler never used gas” comment. With all the Trump-Hitler references these days, the outrage seems ginned up.

    • Most people with a functioning brain knew what he meant. He meant that Adolf never used it in combat.

  6. If he is not being made to go on vacation by Fox, big mistake by O’reilly to take time off.
    Fight through it, win in ratings, make them keep you.

    Easier to fire a guy away from the office, not winning in the ratings nightly.

    • Is O’Reilly taking some time off?

      I couldn’t find anything in any of Johnny’s “Tuesday Links and Open Thread.”
