  • Hillary Clinton's scandals piling up faster than flakes in a snowstorm

    Wading through the daily deluge of Hillary Clinton news, I feel like I’m reading the police blotter. The litany of her shameful shenanigans resembles the litany of neighborhood crimes recorded by cops. There are simply too many to stomach. There is another similarity, too: In both cases, fear and revulsion are the proper responses from honest Americans. More than 17 months before Election Day, Clinton scandals are piling up faster than robberies during a police strike. There is a media feeding frenzy over her shady dealings and the sheer volume of unsavory revelations is approaching a critical mass. The pace...

    Members of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday will question outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller on investigations of the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, the Boston Marathon bombings, and recent leaks of classified government information. Mueller was to undergo questioning by the committee on these and other issues in what will be his final appearance before the panel. His last day on the job is Sept. 4. The Justice Department revealed last month that it had secretly gathered emails of Fox News correspondent James Rosen and phone records of The Associated Press in an effort to crack...

    Bill O'Reilly Forced To Deny Accusations He Physically Assaulted His Ex-Wife Prior To 2010 Split By Dragging Her 'Down A Staircase By The Neck' By DAVID MCCORMACK 18 May 2015 Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly is alleged to have physically assaulted his ex-wife by dragging her down a staircase by the neck, according to evidence heard during a bitter court battle over custody of their two children. A hard fought three-year custody dispute between O'Reilly and ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy finally ended last month when a Nassau County Supreme Court justice granted custody of the couple's two kids to their mother....

    Western Journalism ^ | 5/14/2015 | B. Christopher Agee
    “Is he really the sole arbiter of what is right and just?” Referencing Barack Obama’s remarks at a recent forum aimed at addressing poverty, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took exception to the president’s public indictment of a rival cable news network. Obama stated that Fox News Channel offers a “constant menu” of programming demonizing the poor as lazy “sponges” and “leeches.” Scarborough eviscerated Obama not only for his comments, but for the forum in which he decided to make them. “At a bipartisan summit, you decide to attack a cable news channel as the problem,” he said, “saying that [FNC...

    For going on seven years we have learned three things about President Obama: 1) He loves the poor so much he continues to create more of them. 2) He loves the poor so much he does everything in his power to keep them poor. 3) He doesn’t see the opposition as loyal, but as bad players — his enemy. This is especially true of Fox News, which Obama ripped as anti-poor bigots during a Wednesday afternoon summit on poverty. We’re used to this Obama, the forever-partisan who has never seen himself as president of all the people but only of...

    During a panel discussion about poverty, President Obama criticized Fox News for stereotyping poor people as “sponges” or “leeches.” Part of the problem, he explained, was that so many people think that the poor are underserving of help from the federal government, causing wealthy people to actually be angry at the poor. “I think the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges and leeches are don’t want to work, are lazy or are undeserving got traction,” Obama said. He blamed the Fox News channel for feeding that narrative. “It’s still being propagated, I mean, I have to say that...

    Cable news is in trouble. The Pew Research Center reports that the median daily audience for Fox, CNN, and MSNBC is down about 11 percent since 2008. The Washington Post's Paul Farhi sees a grim future for the industry. He argues that cable news outlets are pretty much where newspapers were a decade ago: their audience is aging, their medium is being disrupted by new technologies, and the next generation of viewers is developing habits and preferences that they're poorly placed to serve. (This is probably a good moment to note that I'm a contributor to MSNBC.) The networks may still...

    American Idol ratings hit a series low last week, dropping to a 1.4 in the desirable 18-49 demographic. Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor. Heading into this week the two regular editions of “Idol” were averaging a combined 2.9 rating...

    American Thinker ^ | Lloyd Marcus
    For crying out loud, Cruz simply trumpeted traditional principles and values that Americans have celebrated since the Republic's founding: American exceptionalism, liberty, freedom, hard work, God, and country.  The problem is that without even realizing it, many have succumbed to the left successfully tainting their thinking, lowering the nation's behavioral bar, and forcing political correctness down our throats.  So when a Ted Cruz comes along, his message sounds edgy to those hearing it for the first time.  And yet I believe that many will be drawn instinctively to it. Why?  Because conservatism connects with our higher self/spirit.  It inspires people...

Ted Cruz told Fox New Tuesday night, after various liberal media outlets bashed him as a "scary," "dangerous," "slimy" no-compromiser with a "hardline conservative message." For starters. The day after announcing his presidential ambitions, Cruz told Megyn Kelly one of his "favorite comments" came from the New York Times, which said that Cruz could not be swayed by the Washington elites, who hate him. "And I have to admit, my immediate thought was, holy cow, do I have to disclose that to the Federal Election Commission (the...

According to TMZ, Twentieth Century Fox Television filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against EMPIRE Distribution over the name it shares with Fox's popular television series "Empire." Founded in 2010, EMPIRE Distribution releases digital music from urban artists including leading hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg, T.I. and Kendrick Lamar. Fox's fictional Empire Records releases urban music including hip-hop and R&B, but in a real life twist, songs from the series are actually available for sale.

    One America News, which launched patriotically on July 4, 2013, is something of an anomaly in the cable news universe. First of all, it's based in San Diego, California. The channel's news coverage is intended to be straight down the middle, even though its talk shows are pretty staunchly conservative. The network does not cover sports or pop culture news. Like Lahren, many of its news anchors and reporters are young. And for now, it airs no commercials. The network may want to emulate Fox's success, but it's taking a very different path to get there.

In the coming months (and Sling’s been working quickly), it will hit the Xbox One...

But at the end of his broadcast, the Fox anchor pointed out a minor — but almost certainly intentional —...

    Fox ^ | 12/19/14 | Jonathan Hunt
    Editor's note: Fox News Chief Correspondent Jonathan Hunt became a naturalized U.S. citizen on November 21, 2014. It was October 1995, and I'd been in the U.S. for little more than a month. I sat back in my seat on a flight from Los Angeles to Washington (which was my new home), and thought about what I'd just witnessed: my first major assignment as U.S. correspondent for Sky News was to cover the end of O.J. Simpson's murder trial. And this country I now found myself exploring, dissecting and trying to understand and interpret for my British audience appeared to...

    For the third time in a month, Dish Network customers are missing out on popular programming due to a dispute with a channel owner. This time it’s Fox News, one of the most popular cable channels in the United States. The channel disappeared from Dish’s lineup shortly after midnight Eastern time Sunday because Dish’s contract to carry Fox News expired before it could be renewed. It was still blacked out on Monday.

    21st Century Fox and Dish pointed the finger at each other tonight as carriage talks between the two failed to produce a deal by midnight, resulting in Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel no longer being available on Dish. Both sides blamed the other for the shutdowns. “It is disappointing that, after nearly two decades without a blackout, Fox News Channel has been blocked by Dish Network,” Tim Carry, EVP Distribution at Fox News Channel said late tonight. “We care deeply about our viewers and hope that they will regain access to the number one cable news channel soon....

    Looks like DISH just axed the FOX News Channel. Liberals everywhere are probably ecstatic. I saw the logo and hear the crazy annoying music. They've been threatening on the air for days .. . so I guess it happened tonight at close to 11:00 p.m. Central Time.

    According to Nielsen, FOX News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier surpassed ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir in five key markets across the country in household viewers including Baltimore, Jacksonville, Ft. Myers, Providence and St. Louis. As a cable news program, this is quite an impressive feat for Special Report, as its rival World News Tonight is a broadcast program. With more than a double-digit advantage over Muir, Special Report easily beats World News Tonight. Baier also outperforms the broadcast program CBS’ Evening News with Scott Pelley in both Atlanta and Austin in household viewers. In cable news,...
