    According to new reports, Greta Van Susteren did not leave her show on Fox News willingly but was abruptly forced out by CEO Murdoch. Money.cnn.com reported: A sharp knock on the door signaled that Greta Van Susteren's time on Fox News Channel was over. A courier arrived at Van Susteren's Washington, D.C. home at 9 a.m. Tuesday, hand-delivering two letters that said that Van Susteren "was being taken off the air" immediately, according to her husband, John Coale, who is a high-profile Washington lawyer. Van Susteren was already planning to leave, but she thought she would be hosting her 7...

    In an extensive article within New York Magazine, mostly outlining the rather sordid details of Roger Ailes, readers may also note specific confirmation of something we outlined in August of last year (2015). Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch instructed Fox News executives to take down Donald Trump. (NY MAG) [] Murdoch was not a fan of Trumps and especially did not like his stance on immigration. (The antipathy was mutual: Murdochs been very bad to me, Trump told me in March.) A few days before the first GOP debate on Fox in August 2015, Murdoch called Ailes at home. This...

    The likely departure of the former aide to Richard Nixon who defied the odds when he launched Fox News 20 years ago could present a big problem for the Murdochs. Three of Fox News biggest stars Bill OReilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren have clauses in their contracts that would allow them to depart if Mr Ailes were to leave the network, the two people briefed on the dispute said. This means a core team of on-air talent could follow Mr Ailes out of the door. Mr OReilly said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter last...

Galston While all eyes have been turned toward the dramatic nominating contests in both political parties, the fundamentals that will shape the general-election contest have been shifting toward the Democrats. Candidates seeking to succeed a two-term incumbent of their own party face an uphill battle. All other things being equal, political scientists find, such candidates can expect to fall short of the incumbents re-election vote share by at least 4 percentage points. Applied to the 2012 results, this metric would yield a 47% share for this years Democratic nominee. On the...

The newspaper's conservative-leaning editorial board wrote Friday that Trump must prove he is as successful in the business world as he says he is. "One of Donald Trump's claims to presidential competence is his business and financial success, and so he should want voters to see the proof beyond the gilded staircases," they wrote. "He could enhance his credibility on the point by releasing his tax returns." The Journal catalogued Trump's repeated dodges on...

    The head of Fox News, Mr. Wall Street, aka billionaire Rupert Murdoch (not an American) is one of the strongest advocates for mass immigration into the U.S. to fundamentally change the dynamics of the U.S. economy. This approach further solidifies the modern American future as service driven only - a traditional class society, "haves and have-much-less". The middle class evaporates along with the lost jobs and wages.

    In the absence of Donald Trump, the Republican debate moderators and GOP candidates found a new punching bag -- the frontrunner's closest competition in Iowa, Sen. Ted Cruz. Thursday night's Fox News debate at the Iowa Events Center had some competition for ratings, after the field's frontrunner decided not to show. Trump instead held his own event less than three miles from the venue, raising money for veterans and ensuring sole access to the spotlight with just four days until Iowa voters head to the caucuses on Monday.

Even the moderators wanted to know: Why do his fellow Senators despise him?

    News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch, in a discursive speech Monday evening, blasted Secretary of State John Kerry and attacked the left for creating an "identity crisis" that he charged has undermined American strength and fostered terrorism around the world. And he drew a connection between U.S. foreign policy and domestic culture, arguing that “in recent years, there has been far too much institutionalization of grievance and victimhood."

    During the Fox Business News debate several political junkies noted a rather curious omission: Senator Marco Rubio was never questioned about the 2013 Senate Gang-of-Eight bill and his stance on Comprehensive Immigration Reform. In fact, if you were to review the debate substance you'd note that candidate Rubio wasn't directly questioned about his immigration positions at all.It is not disconnected that during the 2013/2014 Gang-of-Eight immigration constructs, Fox News was an active participant in the promotion of the immigration reform proposals. In order to facilitate the congressional immigration intent Fox launched a previously unknown pro-amnesty propaganda blitz to support senate...

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has suggested that Barack Obama was not a real black president in a tweet praising Republican candidate Ben Carson on Wednesday night. Murdoch, who has repeatedly praised Carson in recent months, tweeted: Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide? And much else. He then directed followers to an article in New York magazine that he said showed minority community disappointment with the presidents record. However, his earlier tweet directly implied that Obama, whose mother was a white American and whose father was a Kenyan studying...

    Rupert Murdoch just bought National Geographic. Heres the problem everybody should be talking about. The media was up in arms yesterday at news of Murdoch's high-profile acquisition. Here's what you should know. The news that National Geographic has now been placed in the hands of Rupert Murdoch prompted a predictable outcry, roughly akin to what happens in the movies when the clearly evil tycoon takes the orphans away. A bastion of popular science is now controlled by a very prominent climate change denier who, despite his companys assurances of editorial integrity, has spent decades interfering with the independence of his...

    So now Megyn Kelly is a RINO squish intent on doing the liberal medias dirty work. (SNIP) That Trump has been trashing her for so long, and the best her coworkers and boss can do is tweet a few cowardly lines asking him to pwease, pwease stop, Mr. Trump, pwease, suggests that Foxs audience has sided with Trump on this one and has lost a certain amount of faith in Megyn Kelly. What Trumps campaign has done, then, is give other candidates an excuse to blow off questions from Megyn Kelly. Considere this exchange between Kelly and Ted Cruz last...

    Though Fox News hosts remained largely silent during Donald Trump's first spat with Megyn Kelly, the channel's personalities were quick to defend their colleague Tuesday morning after Trump again decided to ridicule Kelly. Trump had patched up his relationship with Fox after commenting that Kelly "had blood coming out of her wherever" during the first Republican presidential debate. However, on Monday night he said Kelly was "off her game" upon returning from vacation. He also retweeted a comment calling Kelly a "bimbo." During "Fox and Friends" on Tuesday morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade said Trump's tweets attacking Kelly were "totally out...
