    Fox News and CNN On Wednesday again traded blows on the air with Fox News's Sean Hannity comparing CNN's Anderson Cooper to Jerry Springer and Cooper hitting Fox for not reprimanding its top-rated host. The back-and-forth jabs seem to be happening on a regular basis between the two cable news networks, with MSNBC, which is currently second to Fox News overall in the cable news race, rarely being dragged into the fight. “In the two days that have elapsed since the president’s lawyer Michael Cohen was forced to reveal in court that the mystery client he tried to keep secret...

    A few weeks ago, the journalism watchdogs Democratic Party apparatchiks at Media Matters* organized a boycott against Laura Ingraham after she tweeted something snotty about Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg. She apologized for it, but Hogg didn't care and neither did his handlers at Media Matters. The grown-ups saw a perfect opportunity to take down one of their most hated enemies, and they had no problem using the kid as a human shield. That's who they are, and that's what they do.It's not working, and I'm having trouble remembering the last time it did work. Jon Levine, The...

    Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said Monday that Fox News should fire Sean Hannity following the revelation that he is a client of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Hannity has frequently covered stories about Cohen — including the FBI raids on the New York lawyer's home, hotel room and office last week — without revealing his own connection. “I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud he can’t get out of it. And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again be trusted,” Connolly said on CNN. Connolly said Hannity’s involvement...

    In a series of statements, Hannity said Cohen never represented him "in any matter," though he "occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective." Hannity later added that he "did not ask Michael Cohen to bring this proceeding on my behalf, I have no personal interest in this proceeding, and, in fact, asked that my de minimis discussions with Michael Cohen, which dealt almost exclusively about real estate, not be made a part of this proceeding." On his radio show that day, Hannity said "I might have handed him 10 bucks"...
  • David Hogg’s boycott backfires: Laura Ingraham’s viewership jumps 20 percent

    Sponsors who left Fox News star Laura Ingraham’s show at the behest of teen gun control activist David Hogg are missing out on a 20 percent increase in eyeballs. The conservative author of “Shut up and Sing” lost nearly 30 advertisers since a boycott against her show launched March 29, but those who held firm are benefiting from a ratings windfall. Data compiled by the media watchdog News Busters shows a jump from 2.23 million viewers prior to Mr. Hogg’s campaign to 2.7 million since her return from a vacation.
  • Learning From 'Life Liberty & Levin'

    Liberal journalists have spilled a whole lot of ink in the Trump era, boasting how they've suffered watching a week or so of Fox News programming to explore the strange informational terrain of the Trump voter. They pompously proclaim it's television for your crazy Uncle Frank, pushing conspiracy theories for dumb people while nurturing resentment toward the elites -- meaning, of course, them. That nasty cartoon is rebutted by the new Fox News program "Life Liberty & Levin," hosted by Mark Levin. It is more intellectual than anything produced on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or MSNBC. Nothing they have on...

    It may seem surprising for a liberal commentator like myself, but from 2010 to 2013, I worked in the most prominent den of American conservatism: Fox News. During my time at the network I came to realize how condescending I’d been in my views about not only the people who worked at Fox News but the people watching at home. And condescension is just a snooty form of prejudice; we are only condescending to those we feel are inherently beneath us. The more I got out of my own liberal bubble, the more I met other conservatives who were neither...

    On Fox Business Network tonight, Lou Dobbs and Gregg Jarrett went on a tear against special counsel Robert Mueller minutes after President Trump did the same. He denounced the “witch hunt” and even said it’s an “attack on our country” in remarks responding to the FBI raid on his lawyer Michael Cohen‘s office. Dobbs –– one of the most pro-Trump voices on both Fox and Fox Business –– said, “We’re witnessing an orchestrated assault on the President of the United States.” Jarrett joined Dobbs to say, “The Attorney General is incompetent, the FBI is corrupt, and Robert Mueller and Rod...

    Laura Ingraham’s return to Fox News tonight doesn’t mark the end of her bad news: Allstate insurance has quietly dropped Ingraham’s show, telling employees in an internal memo that her comments about Parkland student David Hogg were “inconsistent” with company values. Ingraham is expected back on the air tonight after a vacation she announced amid the fallout over her comments. In a March 31 memo, obtained by TheWrap, Allstate said it severed ties with Ingraham’s show on Wednesday, March 28. That was the day Ingraham posted a tweet accusing Hogg of “whining” that he didn’t get into several colleges. Allstate...

    Hannity allegedly made the comments about Smith — who has made a name for himself in the Fox News Trump-era by refusing to pander to his network’s conservative audience — while hanging-out with Trump at Mar-a-Lago last weekend where he was “overheard trashing” the anchor, according to Vanity Fair. “Hannity was denouncing Shep and Trump was eating it up,” said one source who is familiar with the encounter between Trump and Hannity, which led in the host attempting to discredit the report. This wouldn’t be the first time Shepard Smith has butted-heads with Fox News’ opinion programming. During an in-depth...

    What did Fox News' Laura Ingraham say that cost her advertisers? About David Hogg, the teenage Parkland, Florida, high school shooting survivor, Fox's Ingraham tweeted: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)" Insensitive, given the mass shooting that killed 17 at Hogg's high school? Yes. Insulting and condescending coming from an Ivy League-educated lawyer? Yes. But the punishment does not fit the crime. Hogg urged Ingraham's advertisers to drop her show. Several did. Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept her apology....

    Video at link. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a New York audience this week that Fox News is giving her public statements unfair scrutiny because she is now a private citizen. President Trump’s 2016 campaign rival told a sold-out room at Rutgers University last week that reporters should stop telling her to “go away,” but on Tuesday she delivered a slightly different message. Mrs. Clinton told a group of women that she is part of “the resistance” against the White House’s agenda, but she wants less coverage of her efforts from Fox.

    Laura Ingraham will return to Fox News Channel, despite a spate of recent defections by advertisers from the program she hosts there each weeknight. “We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” said Jack Abernethy, co-president of the 21st Century Fox-owned cable outlet, in a statement. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.” The note is unusual for a corporate executive to issue on behalf of a program host, but the situation swirling around Ingraham is anything but normal....

    Fox News is standing by Laura Ingraham, the host of the network's 10:00 p.m. hour, after she made some controversial comments about Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, who has become a familiar face in the gun control movement.

    Right-wing commentator Laura Ingraham has taken a week off as host of her Fox News television show after more than a dozen companies said they will pull advertisements from her program. Among the latest corporations to cut ties with Ingraham were Liberty Mutual, which confirmed to CNBC that it doesn't plans to run anymore ads on her show, and Bayer, which made its announcement on social media. [cut] Pet food company Nutrish was the first to announce it would remove ads from Ingraham's evening news and opinion show, "The Ingraham Angle."

    There is an all out assault in progress trying to drive Laura Ingraham off television and radio, led by Parkland student and newly-minted media star David Hogg. Ingraham is a target, superficially, because she mocked Hogg as a whiner in a tweet after he publicly griped that several colleges had rejected him. On the scale of internet insults, saying that someone is “whining” doesn’t even register it’s so mild.
