    Newsmax ^ | June 21,2016
    Neil Cavuto, an anchor for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, is recovering from open heart surgery. In a statement, Fox News said that Cavuto had the operation Monday at a New York City hospital and came through with "flying colors." The journalist was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997. Cavuto has been off the air since May 31. Fox said Tuesday that he's scheduled to return to hosting his trio of shows on the news and business channels later this year.

    The Republican politician has made controversy his trademark with unflattering pronouncements about most people. Here people are not particularly surprised that Mr Trump succeeded in offending the people of Brussels on "Mornings with Maria" on the Fox Business Network. He was being quizzed about his proposal for an entry ban for Muslims travelling to the US and responded: "There's something going on and it's not good, where they want Sharia law, where they want this, there has to be some assimilation. There is no assimilation... You go to Brussels, I was in Br Trump: "Brussels? It's like living in a...

    A conversation about Donald Trump on Mornings with Maria Monday nearly went off the rails as Trump supporter and reality TV star Omarosa Manigault offered a retort to Fox contributor Tamara Holder by invoking her “big boobs.” The panel discussion, led by host Maria Bartiromo, turned on Trump’s criticism of George W. Bush‘s handling of the 9/11 attacks and the Iraq War. It all began when one panelist accused Trump of mentioning 9/11 a lot with the aim of politicizing it. Rather than give due consideration to this absolutely unheard-of tactic, the former Apprentice star brought a heavy dose of...

    Fox Business Network's Republican primary debate was watched by an average of 11 million viewers on Thursday, the smallest audience of the six GOP candidate showdowns held so far. The figure from Nielsen is down 2.5 million viewers from the first FBN debate on Nov. 10, which pulled a record high 13.5 million viewers for the cable network. It's less than half of the largest debate audience of the 2016 presidential campaign when the Republicans' first meeting pulled in 24 million viewers for Fox News Channel on Aug. 6 and significantly below the last GOP debate on CNN, which had...

    It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Ted Cruz regularly shines in the debates, such as the one airing tonight on the Fox Business Channel.

That he was pretty much a solid conservative, all the more so. RIP. Hank

According to debate criteria that will be announced Tuesday, host Fox Business Network will consider both early-state and national poll results in deciding which candidates make the primetime forum. That main debate will feature candidates who place in the top six nationally, based on an average of the five most recent...

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters called President Obama “a total pussy” during a live interview Monday for what he views as his impotent response to the threat of Islamic extremist terrorism. Peters, a Fox News military analyst, appeared on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business program to respond to Obama’s Sunday night Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism, a speech that was widely panned. Peters, a fierce critic of Obama’s national security policies, was visibly angry as he blasted the speech. Peters said he was taken aback by Obama’s continued references to Americans not giving into their fears....

When asked who would pick up the tab for the demands she listed, Mullen said, “The 1 percent of people who are hoarding the wealth and causing a catastrophe students are facing.” “If the 1 percent just had their taxes raised a...

    First, the moderators were unintrusive, so they were not part of the story. Therefore, an excellent job -- about as well as any moderators could do, and certainly better than most. Let's take the candidates in alphabetical order. Bush: I feel for him. His eyes seem anxious and overly polite, his smile unsure, and such is his demeanor. It's a pity, for his governorship in Florida was sound enough. But his campaign is slowly dying. Carson: He was very strong this time, but he still comes across as uninformed and inexperienced outsider. People believe that Washington is the problem, but...

    The current GOP presidential nomination cycle has received an unprecedented amount of media coverage due to the celebrity nature and historic depth of the field.

At this early juncture, it's important not to confuse the flavor of the month with a viable candidacy. Early polls act as a sort of superficial popularity contest, a referendum on the current political establishment. Americans are fed up with the current regime in Washington, and who can blame them.

    The dueling-perspectives political panel is compatible with the aims of CNN, MSNBC and the other progressive broadcasters. Here is how it works: You invite a member of the Republican establishment often a RINO, preferably a bimbo to do battle with a lefty from similar circles. The sides are ideologically so close that, in all likelihood, the panelists hang out after the show. This format is positively postmodernist. Why? Because, by presenting the public with two competing perspectives you mislead viewers into believing that indeed there are two realities, and that it is up to them to decide which...

    The past several decades, Americans have seen the disaster unionism has wrought on Detroits Big Three. The auto-makers, saddled with powerful unions, fell victim to a combination of labor inefficiency and premium worker pay that proved unsustainable. And while much of the rest of the private sector long ago realized the sots, government apparently has not. So, for the first time in history, public employees comprise the largest segment of unions today. Save for New Jersey or New York, the pending public pension crisis is nowhere more evident than in California. Currently the state is on the hook for $100-300...

Maybe we should just put Senate votes up on eBay. Nelson, the 60th vote in the middle-of-the-night Senate party line vote on health care reform, will go down in American political history as the inventor of the permanent earmark. His seemingly principled stand against including federal funding for abortion evaporated like the morning dew as he decided to take what was behind door No. 1.

    Over the weekend, I recounted news that Lou Dobbs may leave CNN for Fox Business. With Fox’s acquisition of John Stossel and Tucker Carlson, NewsCorp entities are well on their way to becoming the home of most conservative television personalities. This leaves CNN with Dobbs, Bill Bennett, Ed Rollins, and sorta Republican David Gergen; MSNBC has Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan. Properly executed, the move could benefit everyone: Dobbs is more ideologically at home with Fox, and FB would gain Dobbs’s unmatched financial reporting and the viewers he would bring to the struggling network. If Dobbs could connect with...

    NY Times' Brian Stelter reports that CNN anchor Lou Dobbs recently met with FNC/FBN chairman Roger Ailes and could be entertaining ideas of leaving CNN and moving Fox Business Network: Mr. Dobbs, an administration critic who calls himself an independent, met for dinner with Roger E. Ailes, the chairman of Fox News, last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of the meeting. One of the people said Mr. Dobbs is a potential hire for the Fox Business Network, the ratings starved, two-year-old spin-off of Fox News. Mr. Ailes has shown willingness to raid other networks for Fox Business...

    Rumors have been swirling about Fox courting cancer-stricken, old racist coot Don Imus to be part of their morning lineup, and now it seems they're close to reaching a deal. The question is: What the hell took them so long? Brian Stelter reports in today's New York Times that Fox Business is hoping to simulcast Imus' utterly unlistenable radio show in the same way MSNBC did before they fired him after the "nappy-headed hoes" incident involving the Rutgers women's basketball team a couple of years ago. Stelter says that the deal is in "advanced negotiations" and that Fox hopes Imus'...

    Here's a teachable moment: Bad things can happen when the government intervenes in the economy, which Fox Business Network host Cody Willard pointed out on his "Shot Clock" segment on "Happy Hour." Willard, on FBN's May 4 "Happy Hour" used part of his segment to call for the jailing of the New York Fed's chairman, Stephen Friedman.

    While there has been a lot of outrage over taxpayer money being used to fund $165 million in bonuses paid out to American International Group (AIG) executives propagated by the media, Fox Business "Happy Hour" co-host Cody Willard suggested the bailout money is going to something far worse - terrorism, specifically al-Qaida. On March 18, The Wall Street Journal reported that some of the money the U.S. government paid out to AIG might be benefiting hedge funds that bet on a failing housing market. According to the report, investment banks like Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB) sold financial...
