    In case you missed it earlier this week, the National Organization for Women [NOW] put the Little Sisters of the Poor on their "Dirty 100" list. The list is a compilation of organizations and groups that have filed suit against the contraception mandate in Obamacare and claims the Little Sisters of the Poor is forcing their religion onto employees by objecting to the mandate on religious grounds.

    This is the story of MSNBC in a nutshell: It rose to prominence on its criticism of George W. Bush, peaked during Barack Obama's historic 2008 campaign, and, by criticizing Republicans and championing liberal causes, sustained its viewership in the years that followed. Until now. MSNBC suffered harder loses in 2013 -- in terms of both viewership and revenue -- than either of its competitors at Fox News and CNN, according to Nielsen data featured in a new Pew Research report. Prime-time viewership declined by a staggering 24 percent (nearly twice the loss sustained by CNN and four-times that sustained...

    Recently, the Clown Prince of Journalism, Bill O'Reilly, called Barack Hussein Oblahblah a "patriot". I kid you not. From the good folks at Breitbart: *** “ 'I said on Kimmel that both President Bush the younger and Barack Obama are patriots because they served their country,' O’Reilly said. 'You may not agree with them, alright? But I don't think you say they're not patriots unless you have, you know, evidence that is just through the roof. I think almost every president that's ever served this nation has been a patriot, including Richard Nixon.'

Ms. Kelly, why did you rush to call Joe the Plumber a racist on your prime-time show when it is a fact that you gave a complete pass to the avowed racist Negress and ACORN member Jehmu Greene when she openly insulted Tucker Carlson for being a white male who disagreed with her? Or perhaps, Ms. Kelly, you presumed the smarmy Negress Jehmu Greene was actually embracing Mr. Carlson with words of love and kindness when she verbally attacked and insulted him live on camera on your show...

    Murphy's Law famously states that "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." But many are unaware of the lesser-known corollary to Murphy's Law, known as Fox & Friends Law, which states that "anything that can be derped on Fox & Friends, will be derped." Consequently, from the moment it was decided to pair the hosts of Fox & Friends with Hispanic meteorologist Maria Molina for a segment on National Taco Day this morning, the derp was inevitable. It was inevitable that Brian Kilmeade would ask Molina, "What are tips we need to know to do it correctly? You grew...

The question was: “Governor, many people were disappointed that you decided not to run for president this year, but are still hoping that you might one day run for the White House in the future. Roger Ailes was recently quoted as saying, ‘Sarah Palin had no chance to be President.’ What do you make of that?” “Interesting,” Palin said, before...

Among her examples, Sarah Palin cited the popularity Michele Bachmann experienced with the media immediately after winning the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa. Bachmann is now down significantly in all the polls, especially since...

    Rupert Murdoch's News Corp could face probes by U.S. authorities for possibly violating bribery laws, compounding the media mogul's problems after a phone-hacking scandal in Britain. The Obama administration has significantly stepped up enforcement of anti-bribery laws in the last two years, winning big settlements from the likes of Daimler AG and BAE Systems Plc by focusing on bribes they paid to foreign officials to win lucrative contracts. Bribes for business have represented the bulk of these anti-bribery cases brought by the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is unclear whether U.S. authorities would use scarce resources...

    GOP megastar Sarah Palin’s bus tour rumbled toward the Hub last night, driving into a Republican Party furor as her headline-grabbing East Coast trip threatened to overshadow today’s presidential announcement by party front-runner Mitt Romney. “She will certainly be in New Hampshire to rain on Mitt’s parade,” wrote Massachusetts GOP spokesman Tim Buckley in an e-mail obtained by the Herald. Bay State GOP officials confirmed yesterday that Buckley wrote the e-mail, but said it was a private exchange and not an official communication. “I guess she blew in with the storm,” sniffed state House minority leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North...

    “Bold brash and never bashful, The Donald now makes his voice loud and clear, every Monday on Fox.” That’s right, Donald Trump is coming to Fox News, according to a network promo obtained by Mediaite, just a few weeks after Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were suspended by the network until they make a decision on whether they are running for president in 2012. Trump will appear on the program “Fox and Friends” on Monday mornings, CBS confirms, and the network notes that he will not be paid for his appearances, a contrast to Santorum and Gingrich, who have contracts...

    It would be fair to say that the relationship between Fox News and Glenn Beck is being…tested. A recent NY Times column that suggested that Fox News was considering life without its controversial star has led to speculation about Beck’s value to–and future at –the cable news network, yet few have asked what Beck may have planned if he decides to leave Fox News. We may, now, have an answer. Mediaite has learned that Beck has planned to hire a Fox News big wig to work within his production company, revealing, perhaps, much bigger and more innovative plans than anyone...
  • KT McFarland cut off by Fox

    Ok, for the second time today I saw KT McFarland on Fox and she mentioned that this is the first time the U.S. has initiated an overt act of war based purely on intervention supporting the toppling of a dictator. This time, however, after several minutes of speaking by phone, she began to make that statement and was unceremoniously cut off by the Fox person. KT is absolutely correct and Fox should follow this story, because it is going to be a factor in the days and years ahead anyway. You can't undo a completed Tomahawk attack.
  • Evan Bayh to Join FOX News

    Former Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh is slated to become a contributor to Fox News, Huffington Post and other outlets are reporting. Bayh, a moderate Democrat who served in the Senate from 1999 to 2011, will act as a commentator and political analyst for the network, according to the Huffington Post. Bayh flirted with the idea of a presidential bid in 2008, but ultimately abandoned the idea. "Senator Bayh's decades of experience in the political arena and his participation in key decisions in Washington will lend a valuable point of view to the entire FOX News lineup," said Michael Clemente, senior...
  • Beck is Leaving Fox? It doesn’t make Sense!

    On any given day, Glenn Beck’s show at 5:00 PM Eastern on Fox News, has better ratings than Fox’s Greta Van Susteren’s show that runs at night, prime time shall we say. Susteren, regardless how weak she is versus the others in the evening at FNC, is still stronger than the hot-heads on MSNBC and the losers at CNN. Therefore, it is strange the Drudge Report-posted pending NYT story that Fox and Beck will part ways. Indeed, Beck being “extreme” may be the reason as to why Beck may end his career at Fox. However if he is extreme, in...

    This is from Barry Ritholtz's blog: Here’s what I learned recently: Someone I spoke with claimed that Ailes was scheduled to speak at their event in March, but canceled. It appears that Roger’s people, ostensibly using a clause in his contract, said he “cannot appear for legal reasons.” I asked “What, precisely, does that mean?” The response: “Roger Ailes will be indicted — probably this week, maybe even Monday.” You read it here first . . .

    It was an incendiary allegation — and a mystery of great intrigue in the media world: After the publishing powerhouse Judith Regan was fired by HarperCollins in 2006, she claimed that a senior executive at its parent company, News Corporation, had encouraged her to lie two years earlier to federal investigators who were vetting Bernard B. Kerik for the job of homeland security secretary. Ms. Regan had once been involved in an affair with Mr. Kerik, the former New York City police commissioner whose mentor and supporter, former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, was in the nascent stages of a presidential...
