    There was a telling media moment on Friday’s Lou Dobbs Tonight, as the Fox Business host dissolved into a fit of uncontrollable laughter as he recounted the latest questionable claims from suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. By the time Dobbs had finished reading the 50-second update, he was laughing so hard he could barely speak.

    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...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Here's a novel idea: Fox Business Network should focus on covering business news. At least that's what Kevin Magee, executive vice president of the News Corp-owned cable news network, is urging his staff to do. Unhappy with Fox Business' focus on politics, Magee fired off a memo to employees reminding them that the network was not created to be a light version of its sister Fox News Channel. "I've been asked to remind you all again that they are separate channels and the more we make FBN look like FNC the more of a disservice we...

Jackson called the oil spill Barack Obama’s “responsibility,” but he said, “It’s not his fault.” At around 2:00 into the video Jackson made a bizarre statement, saying, “Some will have mercy on BP, but they’re bigots.”

    Another devastating intended/unintended consequence of the Obama administration's major government expansion: charity organizations (already in deep struggle to weather current economic conditions) will likely experience additional major decline in contributions. On the April 16 broadcast of Fox Business Network's "Varney & Co.," Rick Dunham, CEO of fundraising consultant Dunham & Company, weighed in on the new budget proposal that would scale back charitable deductions for families making over $250,000. "Do you think you're going to take a really big hit in terms of lower donations to charities? How big a hit?" host Stuart Varney asked.

    Liberal commentator Nancy Skinner conceded there is one issue the right is right on - the value-added tax (VAT) is an absurd idea. Skinner who is a regular guest on the Fox Business Network, stated April 7 that the VAT will do absolutely nothing to help the ailing economy, concurring with the "Bulls and Bears" panel. "Everybody, you're going to be surprised: I finally found a tax I don't like, and it's this VAT tax!" Skinner exclaimed. "Here's why - it doesn't produce any behavioral changes - it's hidden as Gerri Willis said. What you want in a tax is...

    The past several decades, Americans have seen the disaster unionism has wrought on Detroit’s 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...

    Politics: Sen. Mary Landrieu was the new "Louisiana Purchase." Sen. Ben Nelson got the federal government to pick up his state's future Medicaid tab. 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. The deal for Nelson includes special Medicaid funding for Nebraska, along...

    People keep forwarding me emails and blog posts saying ABC fired me. Internet forums claim I was fired because I aired a story about the downside of government-controlled health care. This is silly. It's not even logical. No one can broadcast anything on "20/20" without ABC's approval. The truth is that my departure from ABC was by mutual consent. I left to go to the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network because I want more time to report on free markets and economic liberty, the kind of reporting I do in this column. With two 24-hour news channels, Fox...

    Now Lou Dobbs really is Mr. Independent.The last of CNN's original news anchors just announced he is leaving the network he joined in 1980, and this evening's episode of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" will be its final broadcast. Dobbs revealed his motives in a straight-forward statement at the program's opening: Over the past six months, it's become increasingly clear that strong winds of change have begun buffeting this country and affecting all of us. And some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in constructive problem...

    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...

    How many people are watching the new Fox Business Network? About 6,300, on average, on any given weekday, according to early estimates compiled by Nielsen Media Research. By contrast, Fox Business’s chief competitor, CNBC, attracted about 283,000 viewers each weekday from Oct. 15 through Dec. 14, the first two months that Fox Business was on the air, according to Nielsen’s calculations. While Nielsen, at the network’s request, has measured the viewership of Fox Business since its premiere, Nielsen is not permitted to release or even confirm those figures publicly. That is because they are so low as to fall below...

I'll be checking the site to see if there's any live streaming, which I imagine is a possibility given the CNBC's giant distribution advantage of 90 million v. Fox's 30 million homes. Any reports from those who have access to the cable channel itself would be greatly appreciated.

And while early on, when it was first announced, some analysts were inclined to dismiss Fox Business as a knockoff of Fox News, the sense now is that the network is looking a lot more promising, and not only because of the potential synergies with the Journal's news operation. Analysts see strong potential in terms of advertising revenue, with more than enough advertising for both Fox Business and...

    THE LONG-RUMORED FOX NEWS BUSINESS news channel will launch by the middle of next year, a top securities firm said in a report issued Tuesday to shareholders. Citing comments by Fox News Chairman-CEO Roger Ailes, UBS analyst Aryeh Bourkoff said the Fox Business Channel was slated for an early to mid-2007 launch. The new channel presumably would compete with NBC Universal's CNBC, which Ailes headed before joining News Corp.'s Fox unit.
