  1. Looks like Andrea Tantaros intends to spend the rest of her life litigating over a book and TV role that is bring rapidly forgotten.

  2. Speaking of late night piety, where are the condemnations of cereal sexual harasser & liberal clown Harvey Weinstein? Please don’t hold your breath!

  3. I finally figured it out. Don Lemon is a parody of a anchor/reporter. He’s not intended to be taken seriously. I should’ve realized it with his “black hole theory.” Had that not been an intended joke, fully approved by the brass at CNN, he would’ve been fired on the spot.

  4. Dana Perino is quite the class act. Trump chastised her on twitter, but yet he came back to her when he needed something. I totally understand why Trump reached out to everyone for support, he’s a great marketer, unlike HRC.

    • She sent him an advanced copy of her book looking for a plug. She was the needy one.

      Dana Perino is owned by the Bush Family, and she was a never-Trumper. Same with Ari Fleischer.

      • Perhaps, but then you have to admit Trump was needy as well when he called her years after he blasted her on twitter.

        • Well, sure, when you are running for President, sucking up all that free media, she was one out of 500 people he contacted.

          Dana was strictly a Jeb! supporter, no way she was going to support anyone without the Bush name.

          • As you know Dana did eventually support Trump like the rest who didn’t initially. However, there are many who still seem to hold a grudge against them, which is very sad and divisive.

  5. Nice tweet from Pat Sajak ✔ @patsajak
    OK, let me explain this again: We’re celebs. We’re wiser & more empathetic than you. We are famous. Please take our opinions more seriously.

  6. Brian Flood has been an excellent edition to Fox News. I hope Fox hires more media reporters. Joe Concha would be an awesome edition, especially since he is DC based.

  7. I don’t think Ruhle needed to apologize. It looked like casual moment when they realized their outfits looked like those worn by security detail and they had a laugh.

    When it wa pointed out that it could be considered too lighthearted, the tweet was taken down.

    Nuff said and done.

  8. Weinstein’s public statement addressing the charges against him should be in the pages of every psychology textbook as an example of antisocialist personality disorder at its purest.

    A full-on denial and push-back against his accusers, even if a lie, would reveal more of a sense of shame and a moral conscience.

  9. So CNN and Fox are carrying the Las Vegas PC with the Sheriff and FBI and MSNBC is talking to Al Sharpton about Trump

    about to be destroyed in ratings again MSNBC

  10. Unfortunately, sexual harassment goes on all the time, both with the claims that are prefaced on legal constructs that often seem to defy male-female dynamics, and worse still with crude and aggressive behavior that is beyond disputes of interpretation.

    The article below shows how the media treats such matters when the perp is NOT one of their cultural or political pariahs:

    With an eye always on the bottom line of out-of-the-woodwork lucrative lawsuits and on professional and monetary alliances. Just like every other corporation…

    Sans tears, garment rending, and feigned moral outrage….at least until something happens that prevents them from holding down the fort. Then all bets are off and the fingerpointing begins.

    • ‘“Everyone is entitled to their religious view,” Wiener said. “But when you enter the public space, when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law.”’

      Any space anywhere, including Bella’s chair, that will not be defined as being “public” in the sense of being the beneficiary of some public means?

      And how about those brilliant semantics that work out to —though you may have hold your religious precepts dear, we’re going to make laws that punish you for following them…
