Ailes responds to MSNBC: "You can have Shep Smith, but you've got to take Juan Williams also."
one man's opinion

Posted on 10/04/2012 5:19:46 PM PDT by ken5050

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.

<Bob Beckel is tolerable as is Alan Colmes but Juan needs to go!!!!!

Juan can stay. Beckel is a liberal racist who makes me turn the channel when he is on. His comments go beyond just stating the liberal viewpoint into real racism. Sometimes the others call him on it, sometimes they don’t catch it, but whatever, the guy needs to go.

Would Ailes be willing to pick up some of the cost of William's contract to make the deal? When asked, he smiled, and said, "it's open. Anything and everything is always on the table in negotiations. But they'd have to give me something back in return. Maybe S.E. Cupp. She shows a lot of potential. Could be a major leaguer in the near future."

I really miss S.E. Cupp on Red Eye. I wondered what had happened to her, she used to be something of a regular. I didn't realize she had gone over to the "dark side." I'd forgive her in a second.

Would that be the same Colmes who described in such disgusting terms the way the Santorums’ mourned the death of their stillborn baby boy?

Was he Santorum's personal friend? If Santorum used a miscarriage for political purposes, I can't blame Colmes for mocking the guy. I am a Santorum supporter, but there are just so many facets of the guy's personality that are simply contemptible, and I'd like to thank you for highlighting yet another one. I still think he was the least of all evils in the GOP field at the end, but Romney is personally a better man, ideology aside.

Bob Beckel is tolerable...

Bob Beckel is a bomb-throwing blowhard who is about as dumb as they come, and I have personal, inside knowledge of just how utterly uninformed this guy is.

He’s a token Libtard who’s there just to stir the pot.

“Bill O treats grown men like they are 8 year olds.”

Besides being an out-of-control egomaniac who just likes the sound of his own voice (he asks insufferably long questions, gives his guests mere seconds to respond, then interrupts them almost immediately!), O’Reilly’s show is really about little else than Bill O’Reilly and what he thinks.

He tells people what he thinks then (Talking Points) then spends the rest of the hour asking people what they thought of what he said. It’s all about Bill 24/7/365 and I can’t stand his schtick.

I like Bob Beckel.

Pro-life. Christian. Intelligent.

Yup, he’s a complete liberal, but a good man. Colmes is too. Intellectually dishonest? Absolutely.

Not a pretty as Dana Perino..”

Have been around Perino quite a bit. She is a snarky twit and just one of the reasons I only watch FOX Business now.

while nothing would make me happier, that is a bit harsh on the feelings of Juan Williams....who I would not miss for a second, but even some liberals have feelings

I find myself watching less and less FOX news programs, since they started trying to look like all of the other infotainment shows.

Disgusted, too, by the unprofessional appearance of so many of the female anchors and reporterettes. (Yes, I am a woman.) Most of them are made up and dressed as if for a night of street-walking instead of serious news presentation.

Geraldo is a definite no-no for me, as is the phony Huckabee. I don’t just mute; I change the channel - usually to CNN.

Not so professional behavior on Ailes part. Rather unbelievable, actually.

I had the same response, and I suspect this story is bogus.

Letting Shep go is a start. I got fed up with his obnoxious snark long ago and FOX can do better. He’s merely the best of bad choices during the time slot.

Juan’s.... Often not very sharp but he generally isn’t cruel/unkind. I think most of the time, he genuinely believes what he’s saying and the liberal spin. Which is sad.

I really don’t watch FOX much at all any more over the past couple of years. I used to constantly keep it on in the background during the day. Now the TV’s pretty much just off.

Depending on the changes FOX makes, I’d probably go back to viewing again tho.

FYI..topic says "humor"

I guess the hallmark of a successful parody is that it gives one food for thought. So, thanks..

Juan is an idiot. I used to have some respect for him, but he is so ill-informed, ignorant, and argumentative that i just can’t stand him anymore. He’s dumb as a rock, but at least a rock doesn’t try to shout people down.
