    Just saw something strange again. Am watching "Outnumbered" again today, and as expected, they were mum on what happened yesterday, up until the 12:40 mark (see below). I was watching it today to specifically see if they would say anything. They got on the violence again, and once again it looked like the producers were dictating, this time Faulkner was on about the violence and Francis cut in with something about not knowing if she was talking. Now there's Faulkner talking about an "awkward incident", and that Fox "doesn't censor" at the 12:40 mark. Yeah Fox, thats exactly what you...

    The mostly behind-the-scenes attempt between Election Day and Inauguration Day to prevent Donald Trump from taking office the first time will go public in 2020. As I reported last week, a cabal of Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans are plotting a post-election civil war of sorts to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if Donald Trump legitimately wins. “It’s insurrection,” President Trump said on Fox News last week when asked about the widely-circulated plan. “We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that.” SNIP But this is more than the far-fetched hallucinations of political outcasts. The mayhem they’ve...
  • George Soros Mention in Connection to Nationwide Riots Squelched on Fox' "Outnumbered"(vanity)

    On "Outnumbered" today, Newt Gingrich is the guest. In the segment before the 10:30 break, they were discussing the unrest across the country. Gingrich brought up the issue of who is funding, and (I believe)Melissa Francis blurted George Soros. There was a pause, and Gingrich said "he funded it". More pause, then Marie Harf says "I agree, he should not be mentioned as part of this". More pause, then Gingrich says "ok, thats verboten", then more awkward silence, and then to commercial. Anyone catch that as well?

    (snip) 'FOX News Sunday' host Chris Wallace praised Joe Biden's Democratic presidential nomination speech on a panel with Dana Perino, Brit Hume, and Karl Rove. "I thought it was an enormously effective speech," Wallace said. "Remember, Donald Trump has been talking for months about Joe Biden as mentally shot, a captive of the left. And, yes, Biden was reading from a teleprompter and a prepared speech but I thought that he blew a hole, a big hole in the characterization." "It seems to me that after tonight, Donald Trump is going to have to run against a candidate, not a...

    Fox News had high praise for Michelle Obama’s address at the Democratic National Convention Monday night. Obama denounced President Donald Trump for creating chaos and division and failing to lead with empathy and competence. She urged Americans to elect former Vice President Joe Biden. “It’s very difficult to try to connect with an audience without an actual audience there with you but she has the ability to connect with people through the screen,” Fox News anchor Dana Perino said. “You got the sense when you talk about authenticity, she has it in spades. “She has that voice, she has clarity,...

    In a new Op-Ed for The Hill, Fox News contributor Juan Williams argues Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic will hurt him with older voters. Williams brings up the examples of Stacey Nagy, who wrote in her husband’s newspaper obituary. “They blame his death…on Trump, Abbott and all the politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives.”

    CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter may have landed himself in hot water, according to the attorney of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann. Last week, Sandmann announced that The Washington Post settled the $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder who had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. This followed the multimillion dollar settlement agreement CNN reached with the teenager back in January. However, Sandmann's attorney, Lin Wood, spotted a retweet from Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how...

Fox said the video was "too disturbing.' So now they will decide what we can see. Murdochs hate America

WALLACE: But what about the good parts, sir? TRUMP: No, no. I want to go this.

    President Trump said his niece Mary L. Trump “was not exactly a family favorite” and that he and his family “didn’t have a lot of respect or like for her.” Trump made the comments during an exclusive interview on “Fox News Sunday” a few days after his niece’s tell-all, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” set a first-day record for Simon & Schuster after the publisher said Thursday it sold 950,000 copies, including presales. During the interview Trump called his niece’s book “stupid” and “vicious.” Host Chris Wallace noted that one of...

    Fox News host Chris Wallace confronted President Trump during an interview to air Sunday, where he accused President Trump of lying about presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden wanting to defund the police. During the “Fox News Sunday” interview, Trump explained that Biden’s platform has been adopted from the radical left, including defunding the police, citing the radical “unity” charter drafted by Biden and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). “It’s gotten totally out of control and it’s really because they want to defund the police, and Biden wants to defund the police,” Trump told Wallace. Wallace interjected, “Sir, he does...

    President Trump is clearly no fan of Fox News host Chris Wallace, having called him a “wannabe” who is “nasty and obnoxious” and “will never be his father.” This latest interview isn’t helping. The two went at it on Fox News Sunday over the recent surge in coronavirus cases, mask-wearing, tearing down statues, and, of course, Joe Biden. In one particularly odd moment, they tangled over the president’s cognitive tests. Trump recently boasted that he “aced” the test. “They said, ‘that’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did,’ Trump said on Fox News last week. “But...

    President Trump, in a “Fox News Sunday” interview with Chris Wallace set to air Sunday, blamed surging violence across the country on “stupidly run” cities, while also offering support for facial coverings to stop the spread of coronavirus but saying he wouldn't issue a national mandate. During the exclusive interview at the White House on Friday, Wallace asked Trump to explain why murder rates were up in cities like Chicago and New York. “I explain it very simply by saying they’re Democrat-run cities, they are liberally run. They are stupidly run,” the president said.

    Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of the Times, was a guest on Harris Faulkner's Fox News Channel show yesterday. Discussing the Weiss resignation, Abramson began by sloughing off Weiss's resignation as a "molehill," dismissing her as a "junior-level opinion editor." Abramson then made two absurd assertions: "The idea that the New York Times is edited by a cabal of left-wing journalists is just not true." "I don’t think it’s true that moderate voices are being hushed at the New York Times. Most of the opinion columnists at the Times are centrists. They are center to liberal." Get the rest...
