  • Good News: All Major Candidates Are Eligible For August 6 Debates

    There will be two GOP candidate forums (sponsored by Fox News) on August 6 in Cleveland, OH. The main event will feature candidates polling in first-through-tenth place over a series of five newly-released national surveys. Earlier in the day, however, the network will also host a debate for candidates…not doing as well. Previously, Fox said only candidates polling one percent or higher would merit an invitation. Now, however, Politico reports the network has lowered the bar: Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6...

    WHOA! Who, besides me caught that? Approximately 9:15 EDT, the blonde bimbo hosting FOX AND FRIENDS Saturday, with Tucker Carlson and some other guy, just had a slip of the tongue and called Ted Cruz a "clown". They were getting ready to show a clip of Ted making a speech and she said: "Let's watch this clown...clip." After saying "clown" she quickly said "clip". Tucker Carlson smiled as if to say, "Did she just say that?" Not a mention of it from any of the hosts. Hope there is an outcry for Conservative viewers and she gets called on the...

    It’s old news that Jimmy Carter believes Jesus would support gay marriage and some abortion. But Fox News? Well, Carter doesn’t like that. Earlier this week, NY Times reporter Philip Galanes sat down for lunch with the former president and black author Jacqueline Woodson to discuss issues of race and religion, including the confederate flag, black-white relations and same-sex marriage. Galanes pointed out that both Carter and Woodson went “door to door” as Christian missionaries when they were younger. Woodson went as a Jehovah’s Witness, but no longer practices. Galanes understood. “They’re not so hot on gay and lesbian issues,”...

    Donald Trump doesn’t just want to appear on Fox News — he’d like to program the network too. The presidential candidate and active Twitter user fired off some tweets Thursday to criticize FNC for its use of political analyst Karl Rove. “.@FoxNews You shouldn’t have @KarlRove on the air — he’s a clown with zero credibility — a Bushy!” Trump tweeted. “.@KarlRove wasted $400 million and didn’t win one race — a total loser. @FoxNews.” The $400 million number cited by Trump represents the amount of money Rove’s Super Pac, American Crossroads, raised in a failed attempt to defeat President...

A segment on last night’s “O’Reilly Factor” shows two supervisors immediately brushing off the television network, while one delivered a terse response. Fox approached Supervisor Wiener at City Hall saying,” I don’t want to be a pest it’s just literally a minute…” Wiener quickly cut off the interviewer saying, “Fox News is not real news and you’re not a reporter.” Wiener told SFGate that “tea party” members are flooding him with...

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who is considered a conservative kingmaker as the man behind Fox News, took to Twitter Sunday with a swipe at Donald Trump's recent comments on illegal immigration. Trump's campaign to be the Republican presidential candidate has swelled in support and media attention following his controversial remarks about the threat posed by undocumented immigrants in the United States. He sparked outrage by saying that some people crossing the border from Mexico were "rapists" and "criminals." The comments found support among some, but also a pile of criticism. A slew of corporations, including Macy's, NBC and ESPN, responded...

    Presidential candidate and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) is furious about Fox News' rules for the first GOP primary debate. In a Fox News interview on Friday, Graham blasted the right-leaning network's "dumb" rules, which will limit the participants to 10 candidates polling the best in an average of the five most recent national polls. "I think that this is a dumb way to weed out the field," Graham declared. Many critics say the August 6 debate's rules harm the candidates campaigning in the early voting states and elevate those who have been getting those most national TV exposure or...

She is a patriot who is truly “fair and balanced.” As a former attorney, she knows how to grill politicians in tough interviews. That’s why Fox News just announced Megyn Kelly’s The Kelly File has officially been #1 among adults between 25-54 rating. She now averages 458,000 viewers at her 9 pm slot in that target demographic, which is even larger than The O’Reilly Factor’s audience that has dominated the cable news race for years. She has 2.219 million viewers, and was boosted by major...

The emails, obtained and published by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, show a June 9, 2014, exchange between Centers for Disease Control and Prevention logistics specialist George Roark and agency public health adviser William Adams. Roark begins by writing: “Unreal, no country in the world would allow this.” Adams responds: “Well, in ten years or less,...

    An ad unveiled today by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is being denounced by Greta Van Susteren, who says it selectively edited her interview with Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to make it appear the Benghazi investigation is politically motivated. Via her website, the Fox News Channel host has demanded the Clinton campaign remove her 81-second “Briefing” spot, also providing a transcript of the original program to prove Gowdy was not actually backing the Democratic presidential primary candidate’s claims. Van Susteren sees the key discrepancy as “Chairman Gowdy saying ‘it could be’ when I pointed out that a delay in releasing the...

Terms, including the length of the contract, were not disclosed. Ailes’ contract was to expire next June. Fox News is wildly popular with conservatives and has...

The figure is far higher than initially reported. While the payments to Sidney Blumenthal may not reflect any apparent conflict of interest, his work with Brock's liberal advocacy and media groups was a focus of his high-profile deposition on Tuesday before the House Benghazi committee. Republicans' rationale for the questioning was that his financial and political...

O’Reilly has been so “wounded” by a widespread, concerted campaign to portray him as Brian Williams’ doppelganger and to get him kicked off the air that he is up 41 percent from the same month of May last...

I should acknowledge that Gutfeld spoke without notes, unscripted, live and off-the-cuff. I often talk with inexactness when I’m speaking live. Live speaking is a perfect venue to make mistakes.

After reviewing two commencement-speech anthologies - "The World is Waiting For You," which features 18 speeches by liberals, and "Remembering Who We Are," which showcases 30 conservative speeches - Washington Post blogger and book critic Carlos Lozada gives five reasons why conservatives do a better job. First, he writes, conservatives are more likely to speak to graduates as individuals, rather than as members of a movement or generation. Whereas liberal speakers say things such as, "you are the first generation that ...," conservative speakers are more likely to...

    Megyn Kelly is having a very good month. And we’re not talking from a ratings perspective, either. Comparing Kelly to her competition at 9:00 PM is now a pointless exercise. The May numbers show her beating CNN’s taped programming (Bourdain, Rowe, etc.) and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow many nights by a 3-to-1 ratio or more. It’s actually been that way for some time and Kelly’s dominance appears to only be getting stronger. All of that said, what this column will focus on is all the headlines/buzz the program is generating long after the 44-year-old Albany Law grad signs off at 10:00...

    [subtitle: New law bans Soviet street names, statues and other reminders of communist past, as some question priorities.] In a country where at least 4,000 localities had a main thoroughfare named after Lenin, outlawing remnants of the Soviet era like street names and statues was bound to cause problems... The phenomenon is so common now that it has its own name -- "Leninopad" or "Lenin-fall," a phrase that echoes the Ukrainian word for snowfall...

    Fox News has decided that Mike Huckabee should not be the Republican nominee, so Chris Wallace went on the attack against Huckabee’s flat tax plan on Fox News Sunday. Video: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)CHRIS WALLACE: You want to abolish the income tax. You want to abolish the IRS and create a fair tax, which as you say is a national sales tax, but critics say the problem with that is that it’s too regressive. The Tax Policy Center said this, that “the average rate for the lowest income group would exceed 33% while the average rate for the top group would fall to...

    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...

    What happens when the public does not wish to live out the utopian dreams of its elite leaders? Usually, the answer for those leaders is to seek more coercion and less liberty to force people to think progressively. Here at home, President Barack Obama came into power in 2009 with a Democratic Congress, a sympathetic press, and allies in Hollywood, academia, unions, and philanthropic and activist foundations. Yet all that support was not sufficient to ensure "correct" public attitudes about Obama's agenda on health care, entitlements, taxes, guns, abortion and cultural issues. In the 2010 midterm elections, the Democrats...

    Fox News, which is hosting the first Republican debate of the 2016 campaign, will require participants to place in the top 10 in an average of the five most recent national polls in the run-up to the event, according to details obtained by The Washington Post Thursday. The standard will winnow what is expected to be a field of 16 or more GOP presidential candidates by the Aug. 6 event in Cleveland. Determining which contenders will get to participate in the official forums sanctioned by the Republican National Committee has been a thorny challenge for the cable news network and...
