Fox News anchor Jane Skinner announced at the end of her program, Happening Now, this afternoon that she would be leaving the network effective immediately. “I’ve decided to take a break from this business,” she said.

Skinner has been with FNC since 1998. “This is my last day on the air at Fox,” she said, citing family reasons. Skinner’s husband, Roger Goodell, is the commissioner on the National Football League...

Too bad. Always been one of my favorites.

Oh yeah, not too hard to look at either. Oh well...

My bet is on Harris Faulkner to replace her. Harris has a great personality, but Jane’s kinda prude and reserved nature played well with John Scott.

Well, maybe if she's at home more, her husband will be more distracted and won't continue to ruin professional football as quickly.

And, by ruin professional football, I mean cowering to the union thugs and Obmaa supporters who torpedoed Rush Limbaugh's bid for franchise ownership.

"Have to change channels whenever she comes on. "

I hope you use the remote when you do. I don't think you can catch an STD from touching a TV that she's on, but I'm not positive. I wouldn't take the chance.

" If I could find one who likes stupid , ugly, oafs, we could make beautiful music ."

Question: if the plural of "hoof" is "hooves", and the plural of "loaf" is "loaves", shouldn't the plural of "oaf" be "oaves"?

Well, my first reaction was, Who leaves a steady, good-paying job just as the economy is falling into a depression? But I guess her husband has a pretty good-paying job as well.

But it’s easier to quit a job in this market than it is to find a new one, IMHO.

Perhaps you think that she is good looking, but she is a Lefty, as is her radical NFL czar husband. Her leaving is good news for Fox News.

Good question. Commissioner of NFL-you know he’s got to be a big lib, and he played key role in negating Limbaugh’s ownership quest. But Skinner has maintained a non-partisan demeanor.

I take it that you are trying to help me, because you are not exactly demonstrating your superior intellect by asking this question to one who already admitted he was stupid . I get prayers from Freepers sometimes too . thanks to you all .

Skinner received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Northwestern University. Her father is Sam Skinner, former Secretary of Transportation and White House Chief of Staff under President George H.W. Bush. She is married to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and resides in Westchester, New York, with their twin daughters.

I'd say....

Goodell cuts own pay by 20 percent

With her now having more time to clip coupons and cut the kids hair herself, I think they'll muddle through.

Good chance her twin daughters are approaching or are in their teen years, and she needs to be around to ward off those testosterone-crazed, adolescent males. [Hey, I was one, once upon a time!]

Could.Not.Agree.More.

Hoover compounds and exponentiates her "annoyability factor" by being engaged to that d-bag John Avalon.

From the David Horowitz Freedom Center, October 6, 2009:

Marc Lamont Hill isn’t Just An Admirer of Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, He’s His Publisher

Marc Lamont Hill, Sept 7, 2009:

"I am thrilled to announce that Mumia Abu-Jamal has joined the Barbershop as a weekly contributor!! His column, “Live From Death Row,” will appear every Wednesday starting next week.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is one of the world’s most celebrated journalists, freedom fighters, and political prisoners. Since his early days in Philadelphia, Mumia was an active member of the Black freedom struggle. From his award-winning journalism to his involvement with the Black Panther Party, Mumia has devoted his life to Black liberation. Wrongfully incarcerated since 1981 for the murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner, Mumia has continued to place a spotlight on various forms of injustice around the globe through his numerous columns, commentaries, and books. Mumia has generated international support for his own case, which has been one of the most glaring and repugnant reflections of the criminal (in)justice system."--Marc Lamont Hill

They probably won’t do it, but I’d like to see Shannon Bream or Jamie Colby take it. Shannon fills in for Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier so I doubt she’ll be considered.
