So they rearranged their entire line up for Kelly? Will miss Greta at 10:00, she is by far the best and by far the fairest.

“Celebrity” based news leaves me cold. I don’t want to be entertained, I want to be informed. I’m quite capable of making my own decisions, thank you.

>> If she’s just a cuter Candy Crowley, she won’t last

That would be “cute” definitely not “cuter”.

Not standing up for her. but these are entertainment shows, they are meant to feature the hosts point of view. They are not meant be hard news. Kelly needs to be careful that she doesn’t venture into Nancy Grace territory. She needs to tone it down or she could easily look like she’s coming unhinged.

she has this giggly laugh and flirts a lot on air

I got tired of her when she was first paired with Bill Hemmer. Any time he would say anything, she would giggle so much that she could not even respond to him.

I recall making several comments about her childish giggling.

It wasn't too long after that she was moved to a later program -- away from Hemmer.

I quit watching much of FoxNews, except the morning headlines, a long time ago.

Greta is at 7 now, and O’Reilly didn’t look pleased. I think she may give him a run for his money for Number One Cable News Show.

Kelly is certainly not my favorite, but pulling Fox “hard left” is simply ridiculous. Let’s see how it plays out.

You are correct. She is a better looking Susan Collins Establishment Moderate/LIberal.

Newt lost because the Republican Party did not allow him to be represented by delegates to the County and State conventions in the same proportion as the votes he won at the precinct voting. He won nearly half the votes of our precinct, but our precinct sent only one delegate for him out of many to the county convention. His delegates at the county convention were then eliminated in favor of Romney going forward to the state convention. There are a number of videos on YouTube which illustrate how the GOP leadership cheated on the convention and party rules to shutdown any opposition whenever the delegates attempted to go off script for any candidate other than Romney. In other words, the conventions were rigged to select Romney no matter what the delegates actually wanted to vote for or against.

The Democrats did the same thing only worse by imprisoning delegates in their rooms during the Democratic National Convention. The delegates were rejecting Obama in favor of Hillary Clinton or otherwise, but they used fraud, force, and coercion to produce the outcome they were seeking.

I missed the first 15 minutes, and was not impressed with the rest of it. Kelly seems to have a huge ego, and I’m not sure it’s merited. Time will tell.

In all honestly, I don’t lose any sleep over what or who she is. It’s really all about ratings and selling commericial time. On the other hand, I would hope conservatives aren’t like liberals in that our ears can’t tolerate hearing anything except what we already agree with. I don’t care for liberals maskng themselves as moderates, but I don’t object to liberals being who they are at all. Provides us with a clear target for rebuttal.

I will rarely be watching Kelly. A news channel should have a PM news show. Not all shout-format shows.

I will miss the Fox Report Across America, Around the World, Cool Critters, etc, segments.

Roger Ailes will not fire Megyn Kelly or anybody else that buys into Ailes’ interpretation of what is a “fair and balanced debate.”

Megyn has been trained to be as “Rude and dismissive” as O’Reily, as “Interrupt and change the topic” as Greta, and as “Never let a guest finish an opinion” as Cavoto.

To Roger the Ailing, “balanced” means taking the devil’s advocate position to whatever the guest’s opinion is.

I don’t give a furry rat’s behind what the “Devil’s Advocate position” is on ANY topic!

I try to gain a better understanding of what the GUEST’S opinion is.

Roger Ailes has his puppets so well trained that once a guest starts to clarify an important opinion held by the guest, Ailes has his puppets talk rudely and very loudly over the top of them, AND change the topic at the same time.

The question I have for Ailes is as follows: “Why do you have any guests come on your various shows?”

It would save a lot of air time for us high-information viewers to not have to mash the “mute” button when the Fox “Star” opens their yap.

Not having any guests on their shows would allow rude and low-information Fox program stars to compete directly with the MSNBC rude and low-information stars such as Iconic Chrissy Matthews, and Larry McDonnell.

BTW, the final con that Roger the Ailing has his puppets say at the end of their painful shows is: “That’s all the time we have, my friends.”

If that is the way that Fox wants to treat their guests, and then pretend that having done so that they consider us to be their “friends” is at variance with my concept of friendship behavior by example.

I always thought she was pretty, but never ever liked her. Her manner of speaking irritated me....too fast, blunt, and just not friendly. I haven’t watched her for years and still won’t.

I am totally going to miss the re-run of Greta, she comes on at 4:00 CA.
time so I could catch the re-run at 10:00!! NOT happy with this new line
up at all. I was off on Tuesday and caught Gretchen Carlsons show,
the real show or something. It was just awful, she comes off so extremely
phony!! I have had Fox on 24/7 hate what they have done! I never turn
the channel off trying to support the ONLY sort of conservative station
there is, but this programming is TERRIBLE!!! I am truly upset about
them moving Greta! Would rather see the re-run of Greta than the
re-run of slimy O’Rielly!

“It’s really all about ratings and selling commericial time.”

I think Ailes is good at what he does. But not perfect. I think Fox’s ratings bump will be very short and about as successful as when the GOP panders to minorities, stressing their ethnicity.

“I would hope conservatives aren’t like liberals in that our ears can’t tolerate hearing anything except what we already agree with.”

I would expect objective news and conservative commentary, she is neither a journalist in any serious capacity, nor conservative.

I go to Fox for a break from the Progressive bias and cultural slant. I’d rather watch an honest Progressive like Mika breszinski or Wolf Blitzer.

And who holds Ailes accountable for his "mistakes?"

He chose to shake up the prime time line-up. That's a "New Coke" decision.

Crowley yesterday threw a few pitches that Cruz should have hit out to the park, but he refused to attack his opponents personally. He stipuck to the ideological decide instead.

When Crowley brought up the statement Obama made about keeping a low profile as a junior senator I was really disappointed Cruz didn't knock that one out of the park. At least some comment about a low profile presidential campaign would have been funny.

Newt kicked her bony little lawyer ass up around her shoulders.
I noticed Kelly moving left for a number of months. With apologies to any lady Freepers who might see this, I thought it might be hormonal related to her pregnancy. Might take a few weeks for all that security seeking/nest building estrogen to work its way out.

An amateur. YOU said it. She may be a quick study in her field of lawwwh, but Newt lays her dictatorial self out, on Wright’s link above (see #4). At politics, she is an amateur.

Fox is dead to me, but for Brett Baire (sp?) at 5 PM, and at 7 PM Greta, the only real workhorse of the whole sorry lot.

Your theory is more than just a crackpot theory....liberalism is indeed tied to estrogen......and conservatism to testosterone....numerous studies have shown this. (also resonates with what we know and observe about human nature)

She kept thinking she had something by quoting so called “conservative justices” - this to me proves she is a liberal. That’s a tactic they try and use all the time....trying to justify their positions by quoting “even other conservatives” blah blah blah.

Newt kicked her cute little fanny to the curb.

I think early on with Juan, they thought they could get him to turn on dems, rat them out so to speak. At first Juan did that because his nose was still bleeding, but shortly thereafter he was right back being a diehard racist supporter of nobama.
