    • O’Reilly made tons of money for FNC. He wasn’t even given a chance to say good-bye to his viewers. He was treated shabbily in the end.

        • OK….just guessing here but if Fox Fired BO using the morals clause I believe that would free BO to go to a new network immediately……..paying his contract off may keep him from going somewhere else until the contract is up…….that might be worth 25 Million to Fox alone.

          Ill to wait till its my day to be Jim Pinkerton to be sure….LOL…… of course J$ background may give him a idea.

          • LIked Jim on Fox News Watch.

            The first one — hosted by Eric Burns — not the less balanced, more partisan one that followed from 2008-2015 hosted by Jon Scott.

            Jim is kinda like the Republican (or Libertarian) version or opposite counterpart to the Democrat Alan Colmes. He was mellow and often disagreed without being disagreeable. They could both be very charming.

      • We don’t know the exact circumstances of the exit without a final goodbye. Mabye he was told to apologize on-air in return for finishing out the summer and refused.

    • I don’t know where my DVR get its info from……..but they should hire me because I couldn’t do a worse job at updating stuff………..last week they updated the ORF to say the factor for one show and then Friday its said something like Friday factor……now it says the factor……..however the new line up for next week hasn’t changed one bit……..I remember about a moth after Tucker took over it still had Brit Hume listed for that hour a few times….drives me crazy.

      Rant over.

  1. Today’s most popular links:
    5 obsess over O’Reilly
    4 legitimizing bigotry
    3 spread fake news
    2 pain in the neck
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Tantaros filling calls critical tweet a Fox ‘sock puppet’ operation.

  2. Tech question — In Disqus, is there a way to use wildcard characters in your blocked user list?

    • Not to worry.

      I’ve asked Johnny to ask Nixon to stop referring to me directly — or indirectly as either a hypocrit, a troll or a racist.

      If Nixon stops I real have no reason to use an unblocked Disqus handle. again.

      It worked for most of February and all of March with no name calling.

      No reason it can’t resume. It makes reading this blog so much more pleasant.

  3. My favorite quote of the day. From Vanity Fair:
    “Unkind as it is to say, reading anything by Chelsea Clinton—tweets, interviews, books—is best compared to taking in spoonfuls of plain oatmeal that, periodically, conceal a toenail clipping.”

  4. In 20/20 Preview, Caitlyn Jenner Attends Backyard BBQ

    Won’t Tucker Carlson’s “First Big Interview” on Monday as promoted by ‘Fox Friendly’ Mediate suffer in the ratings by comparison.

    I think most of us are familiar with the expression “sloppy seconds.”

    Were Tucker’s bookers aware that ABC had already ‘nabbed Caitlyn’ for Friday night?

    Or perhaps TC will still get decent ratings given that there is probably not much cross over between FNC loyaliss and ABC viewers…a small Venn Diagram intersection if you will.

  5. Kind of sleazy that FNC didn’t let Bill say goodbye after him being a cash cow all these years. Once you stop making money for Fox they throw you away like a used piece of tissue paper.
