In his first response to the comments by the head of MSNBC, that the "one FOX on-air personality they would like to have is Sheppard Smith," Roger Ailes, the head of FOX News said tonight that MSNBC was welcome to Smith, but they would also have to agree to take Juan Williams as part of the deal.
I was a dedicated Fox watcher until 2001. Then they hired scumbag Geraldo. That day I turned off the TV and have literally never turned it back on since then. I don't miss it a bit.
Not so professional behavior on Ailes part. Rather unbelievable, actually. He knew who Juan Williams was, and he is paid to be exactly that— a liberal, of a Republican son in addition.
Juan is mild mannered and to be taken seriously Brit Hume has to show him some irritability. Combs is a Marxist. Juan is not.
How else does Ailles justify “fair and balanced”?
MSNBC should take the deal....Juan could replace the token black guy at MSNBC in Al Sharpron....
Someone might actually tune in that time slot into see Juan...at least he can speak proper english language....
also....At least Juan isn’t mildly retarded like Rev. Al...
S. E. Cupp is a major leaguer in my book
Colmes is married to a female?!! Who knew!!!
cant stand Williams..
Give them Bob Shmuckel and Bergaldo Rivera too please kthx.
i AGREE WITH YOU.
Juan, Colmes, Beckel and even Whoraldo are what they say in sales..”Loss Leaders”. They bring in some independents and just some people who like the whoraldo drama..then those stay around long enough to hear some good conservatives.
MSNBC knows "gay" when they see gay. And they've seen Shep. Send them Shep. He'll fit right in over there.
VERY good point!
I like Juan, and do NOT take him seriously. He is a good little role player, means no real harm, and plays straight guy to the blonde starlets and the big FOX names so they can look like rolled brilliance.
He is indebted to his friends at FOX, has expressed his gratitude and he is privately very close to Sean and O’Reilly.
It is somewhat entertaining watching Juan getting bitch-slapped over and over again in roundtable discussions. I say toss in Geraldo and 3/5’s of The Five.
Dana Perrino said today that Juan was the ONLY person at FOX who thought that Oabma WON the debate last night..
Colmes is married to Monica Crowley’s sister.)
Well we now know who got the Brains in the Crowley Family.....
Send the Chris Wallace too. He has gone from being an insufferable twit to and out and out Obama campaigner.
Fox should fire him.
Who will anchor?
Send PMSNBC Shep, he and Hissy Chrissy can hump each other while watching Obama videos.
Williams is insufferable.
I thought with NPR he would have had his road to Damascus moment but, he didn’t. If nothing else his contract has given him free reign to act stupidly. He brings nothing to the table, really, nothing.
As much as I disagree with Beckel at least I know he has a very human side. He was one of the few on the left to publicly defend Rush Limbaugh during his drug addiction revelations. Beckel, a recovering alcoholic, said it is one human condition that does not discriminate by political leaning, education, background etc. and he was right. Because of that brave defense I cut the guy a lot of slack, more than he deserves often times.
I would love to see Shep off of Fox. I have always and I mean always thought he was nothing but a puff piece pretty boy anchor and couldn’t understand his appeal. I found him haughty, condescending and insufferably smug. That was an opinion I had of him from the first time I saw him when he may have been reporting on something as inane as a dog rescued from a storm sewer too.
I think Ailes should trade them to the Red Sox.
