  3. Will the bald headed butt kisser bring up CNN blame for bad choice of banal sources on, wait for it… RELIABLE SOURCES?

    • I love his lame excuse, the reporter had multiple sources.

      In CNN’s world: Fake Source + Fake Source + Fake Source = Reliable Sources

  4. Tip of the Day: to combat depression or a hopeless feeling, use a simple technique: every time a negative thought reaches your mind- accept it. Then replace it with a positive thought. Takes discipline to do that but if you master the process you will be healthier in every way.— Bill O'Reilly (@BillOReilly) December 9, 2017

  5. Eboni Williams is still with FOX News?

    I thought I heard Pete Hegseth say she will be anchoring FOX & Friends Weekend?

    • She’s not with Fox, and isn’t even a contributor any more. But Pete did say “I think it’s going to be Eboni Williams” at the end of this morning’s show (I just checked). I remember putting EKW into a poll for who should replace Anna Kooiman and people jumped down my throat for just including her as a choice. Now if Pete’s correct I’ll have a chance to see how off base I was.

      • Fox’s website still has her listed as an on-air personality (occasionally they forget to take one down) and she still has “Fox News host and legal analyst” listed in her twitter bio.
        She likely is at least still under contract as of now. I assume that she would be making on-air appearances somewhere if she wasn’t still under contract at Fox.

        Her only tweet this month is a retweet of someone who said Fox should bring her back.
        Maybe she didn’t have that many good options out there and wants to stay.

        Maybe Fox wanted her to lay low for a while and then try to give her a fresh start.

        Also possible that Hegseth just said the wrong thing.

        • You’re right that she’s still listed, but she announced that she’s a tv host, and since her show was cancelled (The Specialists) she was going to seek other opportunities in tv and was in talks with other networks. At which point she disappeared from Fox News without a trace. Her sudden return as if she had never left strikes me as odd, and I have no doubt there’s a story behind the story that we’re not hearing. She is a lively, personable, and needless to say gorgeous presence on F&F, but has the same problem as Hegseth: getting a little too argumentative and spunky for a morning show IMHO. I don’t mind disagreements and debates, but early morning I think requires a little less caffeine in the discussions than what you might see on a prime time show. Overall I’m happy to see her back on Fox but twitter has long memories and some comment she made about Trump and white voters is still being used against her. Of course these are the same people who say Bret Baier is a Never-Trumper, so there’s that.

          • Especially since she is a liberal and you can tell she disagrees with everything he is saying. It just makes the viewer uncomfortable so early in the morning.

    • Williams is on Fox & Friends this morning (Saturday). I came here to ask when did she return to Fox, decided to do a search before I posted, and found your comment. For me, it’s nice to see her back on air.
