  1. Anyone catch Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront? Yikes! Erin’s right eye was almost shut. She was battling a bad cold last week and she apologized halfway through the show to the audience and mentioned that “it” happened right before they went on air so they couldn’t get a fill-in host. I’m assuming the “it” was pink eye or whatever. Erin needs to take the rest of the week off or her arm will fall off on Friday’s show at the rate she’s going.

      • I don’t think the Politco piece suggests that Pres. Obama is a “traitor”. I don’t think so either.

        However, I think that there is more tangible and arguable evidence to be cited by people who argue that Obama wished to use his office to facilitate a sort of parity between the West and the Middle East, than can be argued for Trump-Russia collusion.

        I don’t believe either charge, but which one gets me labeled a partisan kook by the media?

        For all the apples vs bananas stuff, and crap about Fox indoctrinating the slubs merely by covering controversy within the FBI’s investigation, the “Reality-Based Community” has tinted glasses on too.

        • No, I said that he was a traitor. He put the nefarious interests of a country that is a sworn enemy above those of the country that he was president of. That is a traitor.

    • This story has been also largely ignored by the media. DWS testified yesterday to some committee that is looking into this I believe. Imagine-there were no leaks out of this committee hearing as there were when Don Jr. testified.
      I am hoping there will be a huge break in this story sometime in 2018 to shake up the mid-terms.
      A question. I have not seen any story to talk about when this practice started. Could it have started back when Cash for Clunkers was done? We all know those cars DID NOT go into landfills!

      • Titilating theory.

        It would be ironic because I’ve read that both the new and used car industry had the devil of a time breaking even on this program due to red tape and some long waits on reimbursement from Uncle Sam.

  2. Megyn continued her parade of victims today. She must be getting ratings with this stuff, but I can’t imagine who wants to start their day listening to women recounting being harassed, groped, or God forbid even raped?

    Sadly, there seem to be enough bad behaving men to keep her show booked with these women for weeks. Today it was Russell Simmons.

  3. The investigation is ON! The guy who interviewed Harris Faulkner didn’t attack her, so twitter’s very own Inspector Clouseau is out to find proof that the interviewer is a right-wing pro-Trump propagandist. The evidence so far: he has written for ‘right-wing’ outlets like Adweek and Hollywood Reporter. And of course that famous right-wing outlet the LA Times which employs him. Plus if I link to him, that’s more evidence!

    Advice for Clouseau: seek professional help.

      • I also had another guy on twitter react poorly to the interview. He insisted Harris doesn’t deserve any credit because everything she says is written for her. She just reads a prompter. He doubled down when challenged, said even the interviews are scripted. The questions AND the answers are written in advance, and the interviewees play along and pretend to be answering spontaneously.

        I think he’s going to work on that moon landing hoax next.

    • A black person that does tow the liberal line must be constantly targeted for attack as well as anyone deemed supportive.

      • Not only that but obsessed puppet signed up for a account at that “right wing site” the LA TIMES….LOL and hes posted all of two comments…….funny how both are bashing a woman of color on FOX…..lay down with disgraced racists like Iceboy…..you start to act like them.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 buzziest brands list
    4 sexually assaulted
    3 more Chris Cuomo!
    2 cheap shot
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 The War on Fox: CNN joins Media Matters in anti-FNC crusade.

  5. I don’t care if they delete from the transcript Mika’s charge on MoJo that Trump groped Bill Bush, and erase it from the video footage.

    I don’t care if the other panel members look askance and don’t comment.

    Mika is doing what she’s been encouraged to do.
