  1. Showing what kind of News channel they are NOT…..the Senate is about to vote….Fox News is live……CNN is live………MSNBC has maddow talking about the boy scouts…….hey its only a bill that effects 1-6th of the economy. Can stop that opposition party stuff.


  2. Good piece by Concha. I suspect that there will be a new White House Communications Director within six weeks.

    • not a bowling fan so that is ez, seen less of brian, i do not know if he wears well but he seems to know more each time i listen to him. his bronx accent had me stereotype him i believe. they are not all …. well never mind.

          • I drive by the AMF Riviera Lanes in Fairlawn, OH, made famous by ABC and fellow Boilermaker Chris Schenkel every time I visit my periodontist. The Firestone Tournament of Champions was traditionally held here.

          • There was a time when the Pro Bowlers Tour on ABC was the most popular show in its time slot on Saturday afternoons.

          • 15 years and five months ago, I bowled a 221. It was well above my average in the low 100s. About a decade ago, I played a lot of the Wii Sports video game for the Nintendo Wii console. I excelled at bowling, routinely scoring above 200. I was an ace with the WiiMote (remote controller).

    • Not a big fan of Bolling or the Specialists show, esp. since the two outside ‘specialists” are usually two Trump defenders who happen to be available. I like Kilmeade on here better than on F&F.

    • While I think is a guy I’d like if I met him in person, I don’t think I’ve ever heard him enunciate a complete calmly spoken sentence.

  3. Scaramucci, Scaramucci, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright ‘ning me …

  4. Al Jazeera America’s lean was often indistinguishable from MSNBC’s. Staffers should be interchangeable without voiding warranties.

  5. Today’s most popular links:
    5 executive producer
    4 in dispute
    3 blasts
    2 Greta talks about
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Brooke says ‘yes’.

  6. Hannity continues to have anybody that’s anybody — night after night. Or like tonight, somebody that was somebody: Reince Priebus.

  7. He did it again tonight. Bret Baier interupts the panel during their Washington style criticism of Trump to try to suggest the POV of the people that elected him. To me, Bret is very good at this, and I appreciate it. Panel members must too as their efforts to play off it is usually worthwhile.

    • i would think he would ask the questions of any sizable side with no position representation on the panel as almost a reflex, it is his job well done. However if we were to sort back the mountain of daily events going back for months now, knowing it will only continue, it will be harder, and harder to blame the panel for only seeing the chaos. the best question i have heard is what outcomes are possible with this sort of daily new burst of focus on one chaotic piece of nothing after another? is it supposed to negate the growing problems not being addressed? i know, we will wait for the deficit to hit some magic number then pay attention. depressing man.
