Hemmer had more intelligence in his tie than Soledad has in her entire self!

I thought it was just me who thought listening to Martha was like listening to fingernail scrathing on the chalk board.

She is insufferable.

When did she arrive at FNC?

I didn't have Fox News during the 2000 election and I always thought Hemmer did a fair job and didn't lapse into the typical CNN bias. Not to mention, very easy on the eyes.

I was living in Tallahassee in 2000, and we got used to seeing reporters everywhere that November. The only two that I've never heard a negative word about are Bill Hemmer and David Bloom. Both just all-around nice guys, who didn't throw their weight around or act like celebrities.

Has anybody noticed that when a new personality, no matter where they came from, joins FOX their visibility and personal rating automatically goes up? If that personality gets his/her own show, that show will automatically be the highest rated for that hour in cable news networks.

If a personality leaves, no matter how visible or high-rated when at FOX, they automatically hit bottom. As an example, if Paula Zahn was still at FOX, she would have the highest rating at whatever hour she was on. If Greta were to leave for another network, she would also tank.

He is awesome and a Conservative. Doesn't everyone remember how he dissed Michael Moore at the RAT convention?

When I first saw him on CNN (before I dumped Foxless cable for satellite) I couldn't stand him. Hardly watched him since. But, I also never heard him say anything that wasn't on a printed page in front of him. Sounds like he deserves a reassessment on my part.

Hemmer is the only reason I would turn on CNN. He did a great job--probably why CNN let him go. He is nothing but a plus for FOX. He was in the top ten bachelor's list a couple of years ago. Someone mentioned it to him and he turned red on the air. He's a good kid. I can't believe that he is 40 though.

Julia Erickson is passionate about food. Not about eating it, but about making sure the needy have enough of it.

Somebody said that the whack jobs at DU hate this guy. Well, that's good enough for me. Welcome aboard, boy. I'll be looking forward to your reporting.

I've found that FOX keeps a steady course and lets the people fall where they may. Look at Gretta, she started out as a flaming libby and now she is a pretty decent anchor (for her format, that is). Even Gerald (o) has come off the commie ship of state and calmed down a bit (sure, he's made some real bone head mistakes but he has been sorry for them). There are many examples but two more that come to mind. The first, Alan Combes...I think Alan finally realizes that he is going to get beat to a pulp by Sean everytime he opens his commie mouth so he has toned it down over the years. Mara Liason (panel person on Special Report) she used to be a flaming commie but she has toned waaaay down since the early days. I can tell it just kills her but she gets chewed up so bad when she starts the commie rant that she just has to hold it in. Juan Williams is there for one reason....for Brett to beat the sh!t out of (intellectually) every time he opens his pie hole. I consider that to be entertainment.

In conclusion: Long live FOX and this Free Republic!

" Just asking, but isn't he gay?

Bill Zwecker column,
Chicago Sun- Times, June 2, 2005

" Handsome CNN morning co-anchor Bill Hemmer is being linked with Court TV's Kimberly Guilfoyle, who has filed for divorce from San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. "

Does this mean that Fox is moving to the left or that Hemmer is moving to the right?

Lets remember Gretta -- she has changed remarkably since coming to FNC. She sticks to legal, stays out of politics, and has really made a good name for herself on Fox.

When I used to watch CNN (before they finally gave us FOX) Bill was an OK guy. This is one of cnn's castoffs that I will be happy with.
There is no such thing as another Brit Hume. Wish there was several of him.

Alan Comb-over is insufferable and my stomach turns whenever Whorealdo comes into view.

As for the weekend crew..........just zip right on by. Juliette and E.D. are losing so much weight......I guess they're in competition to see who can weigh under 100 first.
