  1. Lawrence HAMMER THIS! O’Donnell last night to guests, “So apparently, Secretary Tillison called Trump a moron… what’s the big deal, half the country calls him that every day.”
    No, Mr. Concha, don’t expect any clean-coming.

      • Not sure what you mean. I am paraphrasing from memory, but am pretty confident of the first part as it struck my anger button. I am sure Larry would have had no problem saying “f..king moron” as that’s part of his hammering, roiling, rock&roll ranting.

        • And don’t think for a minute that the MSM reserves such pettiness for a president who calls them out and insults them by calling them Fake News.

          Their penchant for labeling free-speech defenders as being alt-right, CNN’s threat to the guy who made the Trump as wrestler gif, and the number they did on Trump rally supporters during the campaign, show how Big Media feels no reticence with punching down.

      • I’m guessing too that if Tillerson said it, and he certainly could have, it came by MSNBC second or even third hand.

        • I hear you. But not why just include the “f***ing” part in the original story. Ruhle revealed it in dramatic fashion five hours later on the air. You absolutely include it in the original report. You don’t get to “oh by the way” it after.

          • Yep, CBS covered the story this morning with the reporter saying the “f***ing” part. Watching Andrea Mitchell today, she claims NBC has more solid sources than they need.

          • IN the clip I saw there’s a reference to ‘a dozen’ sources who say there’s ‘tension’, but when it comes to the ‘moron’ angle Ruhle refers to ‘my source’. Sounds to me like she only has one source for that particular charge, but since I haven’t followed her reports much at all beyond seeing that clip I could be way off base.

  2. Bill knocked off Hillary. Thank goodness it wasn’t knocked up. I don’t think any Bill has done that since the 1990s. 😉

    On Hannity's radio show 5p ET today. We'll talk Vegas massacre & Killing England knocking Hillary Clinton from #1 spot on best seller lists!— Bill O'Reilly (@billoreilly) October 5, 2017

  3. NBC actually outbid Fox…..so much for the “she took less money” narrative…..

    –Megyn Kelly is raking in $23m a year for her new NBC morning show and is locked in for the next three years, DailyMailTV exclusively revealed
    –One high-ranking insider said: ‘How on earth can they justify paying her $69m for three years?’
    –Latest rating reports reveal that Kelly’s show on Wednesday had a low viewership, a 1.5 overall rating and a .08 rating among women 25 to 54

  4. The Five is doing great back at it’s old time slot. Tuesday it was #3 in cable news, yesterday it was #4 with 2,420,000 viewers.

  5. Watch the liberals and liberal media treat Harvey Weinstein much differently than those at Fox News. LOL – Harveys lawyer is Lisa Bloom.

    • That’s what Eric Bolling should have done, hire either Lisa Bloom or her dear mother Gloria Allred to be his attorney.

      • They are both liberal lawyers and likely would never defend a conservative, much less someone from Fox News. I think Bolling got the best he was ever going to get considering the circumstances with an amicable parting of ways with FNC.

        • Weinstein announced that he will take a leave of absence from his production company and focus his “full attention” on taking on President Trump and the National Rifle Association.

          Translation: the devil who fights your devil seeking a get-out-of-hell card.

        • I read something today that said that Bloom isn’t defending a Democrat, she’s defending the guy who is trying to get bankrolling for a movie of her book.

          I have no idea if that’s true.

          • Yes, it is true. She tweeted about it months ago. So…IOW she is like all the other women who were assaulted. They wanted fame & fortune over their dignity.
            Liberals=hypocrisy.

      • They would never have taken his case for the reasons described above. He had nothing to offer them other than a big fee.

    • VARIETY concluding paragraph:
      “Weinstein is a fighter, a screamer, and a bully. He’s paying big money to top lawyers and is on the hunt for public relations firms in search of advocates. He’s probably not going to go quietly and his attorneys will be pitbulls. But in the court of public opinion, the jury may already be out. Threats may not be enough this time.”

  6. I was at New York Comic Con at the Javits Center today. I met five voice actors at the autograph tables on Level 1 and briefly walked the show floor on Level 3. Before I left, I noticed occasional Red Eye guest Katie Linendoll in the lobby (Level 2). I thought about introducing myself, but decided not to. All I could think of saying was I enjoyed her on Red Eye, since that’s all I know her from, and I thought that would sound creepy. So, with nothing else to do or see, I headed back to Penn Station.

  7. Today’s most popular links:
    5 sales rise
    4 false, phony, fraudulent
    3 the Ruhle
    2 misfires
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Concha: (MS)NBC should come clean about purported ‘moron’ quote.

  8. Evidently, cleavage power is not to be remarked upon if it’s being wielded by Katy Tur and not by a Fox employee.

  9. It’s seems anymore that liberals are invariably pleased if body injury befalls anyone who disagrees with them.
