Brian Kilmeade on Fox and Friends.

Posted on 02/17/2003 8:32:33 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

I watched Fox and Friends this morning, and Brian Kilmeade was back from Kuwait. He was telling different stories about the soldiers there.

The snow and ice was extremely thick this morning, and the Foxnews camera panned outside to the street, and Brian and the other co-hosts noticed that several cars were stuck on the ice.

During the next segment, Brian and about 30 people went outside and pushed and pulled three different stuck cars out of the ice and snow. One of which was a New York Policeman.

You wouldn't see any other anchors doing this. I love Foxnews!!!

What I was going to say was that this reminds me of the Bake Sale Rush Limbaugh had years ago.

I saw this too. It was great. I've watched FNC exclusively since 11/7/00.

As Brian was helping push he said something. He said "think of all the things the NYPD does for you!" Now Push!!!

Me thinks this was a subtle hint at Sept 11.

Did you notice the third-world men standing on the sidewalk not doing a thing?

you might call them "third-world men," but to me they'll always be -- suspects.

At the end of the show they were naming off the ten worst dictators in the world, and Brian said "France should be on here as well"

They decided to come here because they are either selfish or up to no good.

I watched it with an irrepressible smile. Definitely too cool for Today.

When the police car was stuck and they needed more people, Mike Jerrick said 'Where's Paula Zahn when you need her!?!"

Very funny.

Agreed (except for the weekend programming.) Fox and Friends takes some grief on this board for being too fluff, but I think it's a good mix. They don't take themselves too seriously. Best of all, they don't trot out that Steven Tyler lookalike fairy fashion designer that's on Today seemingly every single time I flip past NBC.

Pushing that NYPD cruiser out of the snow was great!

I agree that the weekend programming is terrible. I think part of that is the weekend people don't have as much job security as the everyday morning people.

Pat Sajak is a serious conservative. Search around the Internet for a commencement speech he made, I think at Hillsdale College, where he is now on the Board of Trustees.

The Disconnect Between Hollywood and America

By Pat SajakPosted July 26, 2002This transcript of Sajak's speech from April 4, 2002, appeared in the July, 2002 Issue of Imprimis.

Here in this quiet, peaceful corner of Michigan, you might not have a sense of your importance in the world. I come from a community that has the opposite problem. Because it is so big and so powerful, so great and so well-known, it has an exaggerated view of its significance.

That community is Hollywood. Not Hollywood, the town. Not much Show Business actually goes on there. Most of the studios are spread around other Southern California communities, like Culver City or Burbank. But I mean Hollywood, the Entertainment Mecca — which includes parts of Southern California and New York City, and, because news has become entertainment, some of Washington, D.C., as well. While I work in Hollywood, I live elsewhere.

My family and I live in a quiet suburb of Annapolis, Maryland. The kids go to school there. They live near their grandparents — my in-laws — and most of my neighbors care very little about overnight ratings, box office grosses and sweeps weeks. We don't hate L.A. In fact, we like it, and we spend a great deal of time there. But I happen to have a job that allows me a great deal of flexibility, and that gives me the luxury of living a real life in addition to my fake one.

You see, one of the dangers of my business is that it has the potential to fill you with a distorted view of life and of your importance in it. And it's understandable in a way. If you are part of a successful enterprise, people treat you very well. They send limos for you. They tiptoe around you.

They pretend that the most outlandish or inane things you might say are important and quotable. Drugs? Adultery? Alcoholism? Deviant behavior? Don't worry. You go on Oprah — you cry — people call you heroic for being so open — and your career soars to new heights.

You're treated importantly, so you must be important. Suddenly your views are not just your own private opinions; they become part of the public record. They quote you on Entertainment Tonight and in People magazine. You can endorse a candidate, fight for a cause, call people names — it's pretty heady stuff.

The world waits breathlessly for your next pronouncement. Rosie O'Donnell — a daytime talk show host — goes public with her sexual preference, and she is lauded as brave. What exactly is brave about that? First of all, who cares? And what's brave about getting the chance to be interviewed by ABC and landing on magazine covers? I characterize it as bravery-as-a-career-move.

I don't mean to pick on Ms. O'Donnell, but it's just another example of the self-importance that Show Business can bestow on you — the idea that your sexual preference matters to anyone other than your immediate family and your partner, or partners, seems rather silly to me.

Speaking of silly, Alec Baldwin, an actor, recently compared the election of George W. Bush to the terrorist attacks of last September. This is the same Baldwin brother who promised to leave the country if Bush were elected.

Sadly, he reneged on that one. Baldwin also went on Conan O'Brien's late-night show during the Clinton impeachment to say that Illinois Republican Congressman Henry Hyde should be shot — along with his family. Do remarks like that get you chastised in Hollywood? Ostracized? Marginalized?

No, it's Alec Baldwin. He's an actor. He's in Show Business. He's important. The silliness and outrageousness that emanates from Hollywood comes from non-performers as well. Ted Turner once mocked his employees who had ashes on their foreheads for Ash Wednesday as "Jesus Freaks." Mr. Turner, a self-proclaimed protector of human rights, apparently has his limits.

Filmmaker Rob Reiner — a cofounder of Castle Rock Entertainment — is reportedly upset by what he sees in many films these days, and he plans to do something about it. In fact, he's so upset about this thing, anyone who wants to depict it in a Castle Rock film must meet with Reiner first in order to justify its inclusion.

So what's got Rob so upset? Gratuitous violence? Casual sex? Disrespect toward Christianity? Bias against Big Business? Is that what he wants to cut down or eliminate? No, of course not. That would be censorship. He wants to get rid of smoking. There's too much smoking in movies.

To quote Mr. Reiner, "Movies are basically advertising cigarettes to kids." No knock on Rob. In fact, I agree with him. But why is smoking open to censorship and not these other issues? And what happened to Hollywood's argument that movies and TV shows don't cause bad behavior, they just reflect it? Or is it merely a health issue?

But surely, health is involved when it comes to violence and casual sex. The answer is, there is no answer. It's just Hollywood being Hollywood. It's monumental hypocrisy. Kids can't pick up bad habits from what they watch... oh, except for smoking. You see, if you complain about what you see as excesses on the screen, you are a book-burning prude who wants to tell everyone else how to live.

You are a censor. You have no right. That is a right saved for the wise. They know better. They are important. It's the same kind of nonsense that brings celebrities to "Save the Earth" benefits in eight-mile-per-gallon limos.

Or that allows them to make a public service announcement urging recycling — filmed at their 20,000 square foot homes. They can lecture to you and you should listen, even if they don't, because... well, because they're celebrities. They're from Hollywood, for goodness sake-and you live in Michigan!

I could go on with a laundry list of silly and hypocritical things said and done by some of my fellow Show Business luminaries, but the point here is not to make them look silly. They're perfectly capable of doing that without my help.

The larger point is the disconnect between the realities of this nation and its people, and the perceived realities of many in the entertainment community. I don't mean to sound too harsh — or hypocritical. After all, I seem perfectly happy to have cashed my checks for the more than 30 years I've been in television.

And I'm not exactly working on the Dead Sea Scrolls. I do make a living by selling vowels and spinning a giant multicolored wheel! So who am I to be pointing fingers? Well, I'm just someone who wants to feel prouder than he does — as proud as he once was — about what goes on in his industry.

And that's why I spend only part of my time around it. I need to step back occasionally. I think it does help me see the world more clearly. And that's the irony of it all. Whether it is from my home in Maryland or from your classroom here in Hillsdale, you — in a very real way — are more aware of what this nation and this world are about than the supposedly well-connected and in-tune people who inhabit our media culture.

Former CBS News-man Bernard Goldberg has written a best- selling book called Bias, in which he maintains that the real problem with the media is not a bias based on liberal vs. conservative or Republican vs. Democrat. It is a bias based on the sameness of worldview caused by social, intellectual, educational and professional inbreeding.

These are folks who travel in the same circles, go to the same parties, talk to the same people, compare their ideas to people with the same ideas, and develop a standard view on issues that makes any deviation from them seem somehow marginal, or even weird.

They think they have diversity in their midst because they take pains to hire a representative mix of gender and race. But there is no diversity of thought. On the great social issues of our time, there is an alarmingly monolithic view held by what has become known as the "media elite."

You can bet that the New York Times is careful about how many women it hires, but you can also bet that it is not very careful that these women hold diverse views on issues they'll be writing about, such as the environment, gun control or abortion.

My guess is that a pro-life view within the walls of the Times is a pretty rare one. And the same holds true on the entertainment side. It is just assumed that "right thinking people" hold certain views.

If you don't... well there's the problem. How can you portray people fairly in film or on TV if you think their attitudes are so foreign? How can you write about people fairly if they seem so out of touch with what you are used to in your everyday life?

That might help explain why religion is rarely depicted as a natural part of life in the average sitcom or drama series, despite the fact that tens of millions of Americans say that it is important to them.

At a dinner party in Los Angeles recently, our hostess was about to say some grudgingly kind words about President Bush and the way he was handling the War on Terror. She prefaced her remarks by saying, "Now I know everyone at this table voted for Al Gore, but ..." Well, she knew no such thing.

She just presumed it. It's what "right-thinking" people did. This "false reality" is a phenomenon that permeates media circles. It's the phenomenon that caused Pauline Kael, former film critic for The New Yorker, to remark after Richard Nixon's election sweep in 1972, "I can't believe it! I don't know a single person who voted for him." This was a man who won in 49 out of 50 states, and she didn't know one person who voted for him. And I don't think she was dealing in hyperbole.

She simply had never met those people. She couldn't believe they really existed. It's the phenomenon that allows the media to "rediscover" patriotism and heroism in the wake of September 11, when those of you in Hillsdale, and millions of others in St. Louis, Cleveland, Salem, Phoenix, Cheyenne, and a thousand other cities and small towns, know that those traits never went away.

It's the phenomenon that explains Hollywood's disdain for Big Business. You read about it in the newsmagazines and see it in the movies. Big Business is bad. The people who run these businesses are heartless, often criminal, brutes. There is no regard for the little guy.

Thousands are laid off while the greedy business executives reap windfall profits. Never mind that some of the biggest and least-competitive businesses are in entertainment. They merge, they lay off thousands, while stock options accrue to the top executives.

Top talent at networks and in movies get tens — even hundreds — of millions while so many of their co-workers, the little people they care so much about, lose their jobs. They simply don't see the contradiction.

They are above it. And, perhaps worst of all, it's the phenomenon that allows movie studios and television networks to program with an utter disregard for your kids and your communities. It's not that they're evil people. They have kids and they care about them.

But they see no connection between what they do and the results of what they do. And, besides, you're not really families and communities. You're ratings, demographics and sales. You see, they are — for the most part — clueless. Clueless about this country and its people.

Clueless about you. And they are afraid. They are afraid of the new technologies — afraid of the dwindling numbers of viewers or readers or listeners... afraid for their very existence. So, don't you see, they have to do what it takes to survive. They must survive.

They are important. Who do you people out here — the ones they fly over on their way to the other Coast for meetings — who do you think you are? Well, you are this country. You are its future. And I think that's a very good thing to be. The world can look mighty dark and forbidding at times.

But how exciting to be in a position to help change all that. And you're at the center of it. The center is not Los Angeles or New York. The power is not in Hollywood or Washington. The power is here.

Oh, you may end up in one of those other locations, but look what you will bring with you. This place. Its ideals. Its strengths. Its traditions. You will have spent these formative years in a setting where ideas can be discussed and treated with respect.

Where the great traditions of this nation and its cultural heritage have been passed on to you... and, through you, will be passed on to countless others. No matter how you eventually make your living or where you live your life, your time here at Hillsdale helps assure that you will have a positive impact on your generation. That strikes me as an excellent start on your legacy.

I will take a small part of Hillsdale with me when I leave. I envy the big part that each of you will carry throughout your lives. This resource — this power — is reality. Not the media's version of it. And you possess it. Use it wisely. Thank you.

You must be Brian's biggest fan. I guess I'm his second biggest fan. I got up at 6am this morning to watch him with that great subtle wit. I even laughed out loud when they pushed the lincoln and Brian, who was driving, continued on down the street and through the intersection. Also when they were pushing the police car and Brian told the folks on the street to put away their open containers and come help push.

Pushing the police car was such a hoot.

Also loved the clips of Brian in Kuwait eating in the mess hall with the troops. Last week when he was actually there, I'd be in tears when the troops were talking to loved ones back home. The guy and his wife with the newborn twins had me sobbing.

I'm on the Left Coast so I don't get to see as much of "Fox and Friends" as I would like (no tape delay). I did see the "car push" -- a great bit!

One question, 'though. Why is Kilmeade always griping about the lack of attention he receives?

He is just playing around. It keeps the show lighthearted and fun. You should have seen Fox and Friends 4 years ago. They were playing strip poker, and dunking each other in dunk tanks.

I beat all of you as Brian's biggest fan. He showed the dad seeing his new twins for the first time last Friday just as I was about to leave for work -- couldn't stop the tears. Loved it this morning as they were trying to push that car. And Brian didn't have any gloves on!! Fox, Shep, Steve, Pat, Hannity, Tony, Britt, Cavuto, Kasich -- They all rock !!! Sorry, can't take O'Riley and Greta. And Colmes is completely off the radar screen.

I watch Fox and Friends every morning.......and contrary to popular notions about who watches the show, I would be a demographer's/market researcher's dream. Head of household, 47, father of seven, six figure income, college educated, etc., etc..........and a total goofball who enjoys folks who don't take themselves too seriously. :) The trio at Fox and Friends remind me of your goofy but very bright neighbors. I like 'em, I like their stances on most issues, and they do NOT take themselves too seriously. Winning mix in my household.

Tell ya what I did do, and before this segment aired, I called Fox News Cable in New York and asked to be put thru to a voice mail that Brian would be likely to hear.

I thanked him from my heart for the joyous, humorous, touching, truly informative and fantastic reporting he did from Kuwait.

I could not help myself, those clips last week were priceless, for us and for our FANTABULOUS MILITARY! (I want more!) Loved his segment on the mess tent today-LOL! But hey-these guys get LOBSTER once in awhile....TERRIFIC!

If anyone feels so inclined to tell Brian in person, via voice mail, how much you appreciated his comments, the Fox News Cable number in New York is 1-212-556-2500

Well, I can't resist. I was one of those guys pushing the police car this morning.

I work in the same building as Fox. I came in early by train this morning to beat the worst of the storm. On my way I passed Rockefeller Center, where only a hardy few were waiting outside to see Al, Matt and Katie do the weather. I thought, hey, today's the day to get on camera, nobody's here.

Called the wife on the cellphone, said "Honey, turn on the Today Show, look for me on the right. I'll wave my briefcase." Al spoke to the people right in front of me, my wife later told me I was there clear as day.

Walked half a block over to Sixth Avenue, crossed the street right at the Fox Studios, saw a bunch of guys going to push a cop car. I decided to join in, because, well, it's what guys do in snowstorms, it's fun, right? It was only when I got to the car that I realized it was the guy from Fox and that someone was filming us. I was the guy right next to him on his left with a green hood, in case anyone saw it.

And has anyone seen that giant snow mountain in the street that Fox has shown a hundred times today? Two of us went out and climbed it an hour ago. Every tourist in town is posing for pictures on top of it, it's (amazingly) higher than the traffic light. A fun day so far.

His reports were always interesting. Sometimes he went too fast, probably due to excitement. But I learned a lot watching the demonstration of the chem suits and the chow lines and so on. Moreover, you can bet our TROOPS appreciated him and Fox. Are there ANY other mainstream news media people there with the troops?

Great idea! I am hoping that Fox could put the segments together for a stand alone show. I have always appreciated Brian's quick wit, but his rapport with the troops (and the brass) was really outstanding.

I once lived near Pat when my family lived in MD, (Severna Park) for three years after almost seven in GE. He is much loved in MD.

This article (I guess a speech) by Pat is so appropo today (it was given last summer) it is amazing. And it is so full of quotable quotes ya cannot chip any single one out without feeling like it is just the ice flake off an iceberg.

I loved every single word. Thank you for posting this. It is a keeper.

For sure, Pat recognizes and disparages the lack of diversity of thought in his 'other' community (the Hollyweird one) and I loved how he applied it to the New York Times! Too perfect! And I did love the way he nailed ol Rob Reiner. Too deserved! hehe

Hard to believe one school district could bring you both Alec Baldwin (the Bloviator) and Brian Kilmeade (who, with Peggy Noonan, seems, from TV, to be the best of the bunch listed below).

  From Baldwin to Bedford Falls

By Michael Watt

So yesterday Bill – you know, William Baldwin of the Massapequa Baldwins -- ...

.... Tim Van Patten whom some of you might remember as “Salami” from “The White Shadow” but that’s only because you don’t know that he has directed several episodes of “The Sopranos” and “Touched By Angel.” ...

Tim, you should know, also graduated from Massapequa High School. With me, Class of 1977. As did Brian Setzer, Brian Baldinger of Fox Sports and NFL fame and Jessica Hahn, for that matter. Jerry Seinfeld graduated a few years (1972) before I did, but my brother in-law lives with his family in the first house the Seinfelds bought when they moved to Massapequa. My good friends Laura Savini of WLIW Channel 21 and Brian Kilmeade of Fox News are also from Massapequa. Peggy Noonan the speechwriter grew up in Massapequa Park, and Ron “Born on the Fourth of July” Kovic’s father was my Little League coach.

Oh, and did I mention the Buttafuoco’s (MHS Class of 1974, both of them)?

Not all the following folks grew up in the Massapequa/Massapequa Park area

Neighborhood News

Race car champion Jim Brown lived in Massapequa Park until a crackup took his life in the very race that made him famous all those years, the Indianapolis 500...

Weatherman Frank Field lived in Nassau Shores, where his son, meteorologist Storm Field, later made his home.

Will Rogers, homespun writer, sharp-witted philosopher, comedic cinema cowoy had a home on Clocks Boulevard in East Massapequa. Some of his contemporaries lived across the street and together they rode the marshes making action films.

Christine Jorgenson, who had the first highly publicized sex change operation, lived just west of the Massapequa reservoir. She took walks around the neighborhood, attracting the curious from all over. An observer’s walk to the bocce court and/or the reservoir would usually net a view of the long-legged beauty, who was once a guy.

I remember reading that speech by Pat Sajak. He is so right. Hollywood is just a bunch of spoiled, self-serving, egotistical, and well paid actors. They have no business speaking beyond what they are paid to read from the script. Loved the shot about Hollywood's hatred of big business when they, in fact, are big business and much more skewed toward the high end than any corporation is. Sheesh...the top dog gets $20 million for 3 months "work" and the key grips and camera guys get hardly anything. The hypocrisy is endless.

I loved the one where the mother and two sons were in the studio. The oldest boy - about 3 yo - was so happy to see his daddy on the TV in the studio, he wanted to run over to it.
