  1. In the mind of a hater…..this makes complete sense.

    Spend all night whining about how Fox News is covering the attack in the UK…….then post this gem

    Richard W.‏ @IceManNYR
    19 dead in #Manchester and @seanhannity turns it into an attack on the liberal media. You truly are a horrible human being. #Manchester

    attacking Fox news OK……attacking Liberal media……makes SH a horrible human being…..I mean really??????

    • I think the Stooges are ISIS alone wolfs. If terrorists can help Stooge crusades against enemies, that’s what friend’s are for.

    • Message to Richard: Blinker fluid doesn’t exist and you don’t need to refill it or get it changed. Someone is making fun of you.

  2. 1st let me say I don’t know what to believe and Ive made my feeling pretty clear about Hannity …….that said…….why is it a conspiracy theory for SH to talk about the Seth Rich story with NAMED sources of information……but if you dare question the many anonymous Trump story with all sources unnamed…….you must be a nut….I mean Ive yet to see any major anti-Trump story that had a named source…..and the opposition party (the Media) belittles anybody who even questions that they anonymous source might have made it up.

    • The DNC never allowed the FBI to examine and investigate the hacked server. Maybe because is it wasn’t really hacked, maybe it was leaked by someone in the DNC?

      • It was a Computer Company associated with the Hillary Camp that said Russia hacked Podesta lol

        Jim Comey’s FBI is a waste of space

      • The DNC didn’t even call the FBI back when told they were likely hacked.

        The DNC wanted nothing to do with any possibility of their servers being examined in the sightest by FBI experts.

        Not Bill and Hillary Clinton, the titular heads then of the DNC.

        Those two don’t manuaver around federal laws pertaining to both national security and to public access to information to brook the Feds seeing anything that might have their prints on it

  3. I used to tune to CNN first for big breaking stories like last night, but they have become the Trump News Network. Their resources are far superior to Fox but they fail to use them. Thanks to Fox for covering the story early and often.

  4. I guarantee those who were continuously complaining that Fox News wasn’t doing wall to wall coverage of the anonymous source Trump “stories” and theories the past few weeks didn’t say a peep about CNN/MSNBC lack of coverage of the terrorist attack. Outside of CNN/MSNBC every other USA and World news network had continuous coverage of this attack.

  5. ISIS isnt about to kick the welfare cheaters off the welfare rolls, Trump is. ISIS isn’t about to mess with your black and illegal alien voter farms, Trump is. Liberals, keep in mind who the enemy is. CNN and MSNBC, keep your eye on the prize. Worry about ISIS later. Besides, ISIS hates Christians, they can’t be all bad.

    • Yeah, an ISIS attack gives some credence to Trump philosophy and policy.

      The natural media dynamic of “If it bleeds it leads” goes completely out the window in the stilted and artificial culture of a class-organ press.

      The targeting of adolescent girls to be blown to bits is a story to be managed and manipulated as political entities might do, so as not to distract or mitigate from mainline media narrative.

  6. NOT THE HEADLINE STORY YOU WILL SEE ON nbcmsnbccnnpbsabccbswapnyt:

    “UNAWARE OF TRUMP ‘PUSHBACK’: Former CIA director John Brennan told House lawmakers he is ‘unaware’ of any efforts by President Trump to push back against probes into Russian meddling in the 2016 election”

  7. I have the solution for FNC’s ratings problems:
    A new show in prime time: “Free For ALL” Eight political pundits sit around a round table , without a moderator. Everyone starts talking and shouting their opinions and are allowed to interrupt each other or over talk as they wish. The person who has for the most talk time is given a $1000 bonus payment, to encourage aggressive pursuit of the microphone. More entertaining than Outnumbered and The Five. Eight is better than five in my book.

  8. Preliminary Nielsen data for Monday 22 May 2017:

    • When they want to know what’s acutely happening, the swallows return from Crapistrano.

  9. Only FOX carried PM May’s speech a little while ago. Both CNN and MSNBC were all about Trump/Russia.

    • I hope you weren’t expecting CNN and MSNBC to give credence to bad guys (ISIS and the Trump Administration) by allowing the isolated and random act of blowing up a concert venue to distract them from taking down the president.

    • Trump-Russia is the missing plane, bridgegate, OJ viewer catnip of the day. For distressed liberals anyway.

  10. I’m trying to watch The Specialists, but Kat Timpf is just insufferable. I don’t know what it is about her.

  11. Today’s most popular links:
    5 gets a lawyer
    4 plan to march
    3 spread fake news
    2 embarrassing FNC
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 While FNC covered terror attack, MSNBCNN talked about Trump!

  12. The fact that The Five cannot host breaking news should be proof that it does not belong in prime time.
