  1. Disgraced Racist Stooge™ is whining that Tucker didn’t talk about Trump press conference last night……..hint…….its Fox News….NOT the Fox history channel………the press conference was the day before and covered then……….guess his quota of Fox hate was low last night.

    Loyal FOX News Trump Flack Tucker Carlson did no segments on Trump’s disastrous press conference answering questions on #Charlottesville


    • ‘That’s yesterday’s news’ used to be a phrase to sneer at stale reporting. Now apparently it’s a mark of quality to the DRS crowd. Maybe MSNBC can make that their new slogan: ‘Yesterday’s news…today!’

      • and then there’s this……..How Disgraced Newshounds start LIES

        Fox News send this tweet

        Moments ago, President @realDonaldTrump tweeted about General Pershing’s response to terrorists.

        Disgraced Racist Newshounds sends this to his poor deluded followers
        Richard W.‏ @IceManNYR
        FOX News did not bother to note this Trump Tweet contained #FakeNews

        But you know with a Disgraced Newshound…….there’s a catch…..and there is

        30 minutes before the racist ICE sent his tweet Fox News from the same account had already sent this tweet.

        Fox News‏Verified account @FoxNews
        Trump cites tale of Gen. Pershing’s pigs’ blood bullets that historians dismiss

        Of course hours later the Disgraced stooge still has NOT told his poor followers that he lied and Fox News did tell their followers… about #fakenews


  2. The Specialists were down in total viewers again yesterday. I think they were getting close to their lowest number that wasn’t a holiday. The only FNC show to finish further out of first for their slot was The Five.

    They were up in the 25-54 demo, but were the only FNC show of the night to finish third in their time slot (Your World tied for second).

    The Five had the biggest demo viewer increase in their time slot and had a smaller total viewer decrease than Maddow, but still lost to her by over 900,000 viewers.

    It wasn’t a great night for Fox overall. None of their shows, from Cavuto through Hannity, won their slot in the demo (Hannity and MacCallum came closest). Only two shows won their time slot in total viewers (Special Report and Tucker both won by a lot).

    • Some of Eboni’s comments in that interview with TV Newser are not a good sign for The Specialists.

      When asked about the future of the show, she said; “I’m no mind reader. I have been told nothing.”, “Now I don’t know the status of The Specialists.” and “So until I hear otherwise, I’m excited to go to work.”

      When asked about Ingraham possibly getting her own show, she said: “No, I have not heard anything at all, internally. I have probably read the same things that you have, tweets from Drudge, and what have you.”

      [She also said “In my opinion, it would be a smart move by Fox to bring her on.” Not sure she why she would be encouraging Fox to make a hire that would likely cause her to lose her show. It’s not like she needs to suck up to her bosses. I’m pretty sure that Fox is going to keep her around whether The Specialists continues or not.]

      If the show was safe, it would be irresponsible for the network to allow rumors to keep swirling around and not telling the employees of the show that they have nothing to worry about. It’s still pretty surprising that they are telling them nothing at all.

      Fox looks like they are holding off saying anything until there is something official to announce. I think that whole building is expecting a change to come.

      Although, it is also possible that they are waiting for the Bolling investigation to be done, but I’m also pretty certain that they already know what did or didn’t happen.
      If Bolling is going to be fired, this probably would have been a great week to announce it. It would not get much attention.

  3. Today’s most popular links:
    5 high price
    4 Guy Benson
    3 Tucker responds
    2 Sean Hannity
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Impartial CNN anchor calls Trump ‘unpatriotic’ and ‘un-American’.

  4. I like how FOX spent so much time on Barcelona while MSNBCNN continued their Trump-bashing. Terrorist expert Aaron Cohen was on Tucker – very smart and sensible man, I could listen to him for hours.

    • CNN left their coverage , I know they had coverage through out the day, when I checked MSNBC they seemed be stuck on Trump. I remember when cable news channels used to try to do more than one news story a day.
