Insiders at FOX have been complaining bitterly ever since FOX gave Williams a huge, multi-million, multi year deal, after he was fired from NPR over comments that allegedly were insentitive to Muslims.

One FOX on-air personality said, not for attribution, that "Basically, Williams is dumb as a rock. He drags down the level of discussion on the panel, and Brit Hume has a perpetual pain in his neck from glaring in astonishment at all the insipid, inane things Williams says."

"Geez" said another. "We can get Alan Colmes to do the same crap for 1/20 the price. And at least this way we keep in in the family." ( For those who aren't aware, Colmes is married to Monica Crowley's sister.)

Ailes is known to have regretted signing Williams to the big deal, especially since NPR senior management gloats about it all the time at industry gatherings. He'd just love to be able to move Juan's contract, but as yet has found no takers.

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."

Send the Chris Wallace too. He has gone from being an insufferable twit to and out and out Obama campaigner.

Fox should fire him.

Ideology aside, Colmes is a pretty good guy. He helped out John Derbyshire after the guy was booted from National Review. Ideology is one thing, but friends are people who'll help you out in times of trouble with more than just words.

Wish they would replace Bill O with Lou Dobbs. Bill O treats grown men like they are 8 year olds.

Take Juan for crying out loud! He is absolutely insufferable. Bob Beckel is tolerable as is Alan Colmes but Juan needs to go!!!!!

Yes, by all means. And if they could also unload Whore Aldo it would be a trifecta.

Ailes should trade all three of these clowns for one of the janitors at PMSNBC.

They should just cut their losses with Juan. The guy is actually running off viewers!

I have a simple message for Mr. Ailes and it goes like this.

When the libs come on, the show goes off!!

I'm mainly talking about their guests but that also includes Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, etc. etc.

I’m no O’really person BUT O’really is the best RINO they have..
Not a pretty as Dana Perino, Kirsten Powers, Lis Wiehl or Megyn Kelly but not as democrat as Shemp Smith.. or Juan Sharpton or whatever his name is..

Juan's entire contribution seems to be brow-knitting, condescendingly smiling, and regurgitating boilerplate lefty dogma.

He's about engaging and intellectually challenging as a chronic yeast infection.

...Colmes is a pretty good guy.

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

I can agree with most of the "get rid ofs" on this thread, especially that insufferable Smith, but I am surprised no one mentioned the worst of them all: Geraldo.

When either of those 2 twits invades my screen the mute function is deployed.
