  • Bozell on IRS Scandal: ‘Bigger Than Watergate’

    Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” last night and chastised the networks for skipping the substance of the latest congressional hearing on the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. Bozell’s comments came after Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the scandal, once again refused to answer questions during a congressional hearing, instead choosing to use her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Rather than discussing the merits of the latest hearing, all three networks chose instead to play up the verbal confrontation between Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD),...

    It’s the end of the year which means for about the next two months, families will be getting together for holiday festivities. To most people, November and December are something to look forward to but to the perpetually unhappy souls over at Democratic Underground, the holidays are a time of torment. Besides the sheer horror that Thanksgiving is to those of the vegan persuasion, many DUers have conservative-leaning relatives who aren’t afraid to speak their ideologically diverse opinions. Things are made even worse by the fact that many of the tender lambs might also be exposed to the propaganda filth...

The ACLU along with an attorney representing the safe house and three sex offenders has asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent the city from evicting the residents. “The state has asked the residents to leave and if they don’t leave they will be arrested,” attorney Daniel Wolcott, Jr. told Fox News Radio.

As we reported yesterday, Beck had a rough month ratings-wise in May, slipping -17% in total viewers and -33% in the adults 25-54 demo compared to last year. That said, he still handily topped his competition on CNN and MSNBC. As TVNewser first reported last week, Beck is planning to launch a web-based TV network called GBTV after he leaves FNC. No...

    Sarah Palin made her debut as a contributor/analyst on Fox News Channel yesterday in an interview with Bill O'Reilly. Her analytical debut was short; it was actually in the form of an interview with Fox News Channel flagship/"bigshot" Bill O'Reilly and lasted a mere 15-or-so minutes divided into two segments. The breadth of the interview and Palin's resulting analysis were quite mundane as the usual topics of interest in current event news were covered, though the pacing of the questions on which Palin could offer analysis was pretty speedy, thanks to O'Reilly. These were in order: Palin's analysis of why...

    Fox News will finish 2009 as the top-rated cable news network, a perch it has enjoyed for eight years running. But 2009--the first year of the Obama administration--also marks FNC's highest rated year in the channel's 13-year-history. FNC topped the competition in all dayparts: morning (1 million total viewers, 340,000 viewers in news' target demographic of 25-54-year-olds); total day (1.2 million viewers, 323,000 in the demo); primetime (2.2 million viewers, 551,000 in the demo). Those numbers mark year-to-year demo gains of 14% in the morning, 16% in total day and 10% in primetime (Mon-Sun), according to Nielsen. FNC saw double-digit...

    The famed comedian D.J. Hughley has stated that whenever he accidentally rests his television dial on the Fox News station it will automatically start tilting to the right. That's funny, but it also illustrates the dogma and mantra that comes from this station that claims to be "fair and balanced". That claim is indeed untrue. In fact, there has never been a cable channel so devoted to one area of political debate. Fox News is not extremely committed to the right wing dogma of the political debate it is pro ultra conservative awash with neo conservative views which are...

    Commentary On Monday I was doing my usual channel-surfing and I was fortunate enough to come across a very special event. George Bush was awarding a posthumous Medal of Honor to the family of U.S. Army Private First Class Ross Andrew McGinnis. The 19 year-old McGinnis was on patrol in northeastern Baghdad. McGinnis was behind a .50 caliber machine gun which sat atop a Humvee carrying four of his fellow soldiers inside. An insurgent hurled a fragment grenade at the vehicle. The explosive device fell through the gun port and landed among McGinnis' fellow soldiers who prepared themselves for the...

    That's bad news for journalism and bad news for the country. Bad news for journalism because it further undermines the credibility of an already-distrusted media. When one newspaper openly shows its bias, all other newspapers are suspected of having their own bias.

    Fox News ought to buy a copy of Monday's Democrat debate on CNN to play over and over during the general election campaign. For now, the Democratic candidates need to appeal only to their nut-base. So on Monday night, the candidates casually spouted liberal conspiracy theories that would frighten normal Americans, but are guaranteed to warm the hearts of losers blogging from their mother's basements.

    What do you get when you drop the former Miss New York, also known as "America's sexiest bikini model," into a struggling TV newscast in the unrated market of Tyler, Texas? You get Fox's next reality series – "Anchorwoman." Lauren Jones, whose career credits also include serving as a "World Wrestling Diva," a soap star and one of Bob Barker's beauties on "The Price Is Right," is playing a new role right now – anchorwoman on KYTX-TV, a local CBS affiliate in Tyler. But it's not a real job or a permanent journalism position. It's part of a Fox Entertainment...
  • E.J. Dionne and Media Bias

    In his Washington Post column today, E.J. Dionne argues that Democratic presidential candidates have no obligation to go on Fox News. He notes correctly that first John Edwards and then Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton declined to appear on a debate cosponsored by Fox News and the Congressional Black Caucus. Leading Democratic candidates did appear on such a debate in the 2004 cycle, in which the lead questioners were Fox's Brit Hume and a black journalist selected by the CBC. My recollection is that both asked thoughtful and fair questions that gave candidates an opportunity to present their views.

    Chicago Tribune ^ | April 11, 2007 | MASTHEAD EDITORIAL
    The three top Democratic presidential candidates -- Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama and former Sen. John Edwards -- have declined to participate in an autumn presidential debate for the frailest of reasons: because one co-sponsor is TV's conservative-leaning Fox News. (The other sponsor is the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.) It's true that politicians and journalists often don't get along. Heck, we've had some famous pols snub Tribune editorial board meetings because they didn't like something we wrote. Fine, it's a free country. But let's be clear here. Clinton, Obama and Edwards weren't going to be debating Fox News...

    Fox & Friends Weekend hasn't lost Kiran Chetry -- it's gained Ainsley Earhardt. The recent FNC hire began her tenure on this weeend's shows, and by all appearances has made a smooth landing. Sandwiched between the "Kelly Brothers," Kelly Wright and Greg Kelly, one of the first stories the trio discussed this morning was the results of the presidential straw poll at this weekend's CPAC conference in Washington. Kelly Wright described Mitt Romney's straw poll win as a surprise "because of his Mormon background," then added that "he isn't running to be chief theologian, he's running to be chief...

    As TVNewser first reported yesterday, Fox News sent a letter to John Ferriter, agent of weekend anchor Kiran Chetry, blasting the pair's contract demands and severing relations with his client. Fox and Chetry were in the middle of contract renegotiations. Fox News legal VP Dianne Brandi writes: You have treated Fox News with such arrogant disregard that we do not desire to do any further business with you. You refused to enter into good faith negotiations despite your client's statements that she wanted to remain at Fox News and was happy with the renumeration we had offered. You and your...

    His news feeds and air-conditioned studio were hundreds of miles away in New York. But Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith looked at ease perched on a platform before the pool at the Don Cesar Beach Resort and Spa in St. Pete Beach on Tuesday, stealing glances at a nearby BlackBerry and laptop computer while leading the 3 p.m. newscast, Studio B. “There was a time when covering news from a remote location was hard,” said Smith, dabbing a tissue at tiny trickles of sweat on his face. “Today, I’m not any more or less connected here, because of technology,...

    by Mark Finkelstein October 1, 2006 - 09:39 Being a regular Fox News Watch viewer, there was nothing surprising, tuning into this evening's discussion of the Clinton-Chris Wallace dust-up, in hearing lefty panelist Neal Gabler take his employer and colleagues to task. Among his moves, Gabler: - Claimed "this network's reputation [presumably as right-leaning] precedes it." - Asserted that Chris Wallace "did not frame the question properly. He asked why didn't you do more? Which is like asking 'will you stop beating your wife?'" - Defended Wallace only at the expense of other Fox colleagues: "He is not a Hannity,...

    The Fox News Channel shakes up its anchor roster a little today, with former WABC/ Ch. 7 correspondent E.D. Hill moving from "Fox & Friends" to the network's "Fox Live" anchor team. Former CBS News anchor Gretchen Carlson will take Hill's place as a co-host of the freewheeling morning show. "Gretchen's warm personality and dynamic energy are a perfect fit for 'Fox & Friends,'" Bill Shine, senior vice president of programming, said in a statement. Also starting today on FNC is "Live Desk With Martha MacCallum" at 1 p.m., replacing "Dayside," and a full hour of news with Jane Skinner...
  • Clinton defends himself in Fox interview

    In a combative interview on "Fox News Sunday," former President Clinton defended his handling of the threat posed by Osama bin Laden, saying he tried to have bin Laden killed and was attacked for his efforts by the same people who now criticize him for not doing enough. "That's the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now," Clinton said in the interview. "They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try." Clinton accused host Chris Wallace of a "conservative hit job" and asked: "I want to...
