He's like Hallmark Cards; a tweet for every occasion.

well, that was the decision they made, for that very reason. I just happen to think that it was shortsighted. They kept chasing the tea-partying Trump voters, with no long range plan, and it bit them in the bottom.

Yeah, similar to how Ron Wood was practically created in a lab to fit into The Rolling Stones, Lahren seems to have been also created in a lab solely to fit into Fox News.

None really She has basically been groomed to move up to Fox, for the last year or so. I just don't believe the women who came forward, because we all know in this day in age "Guilty until proven innocent". Just ask any dude in college who has had their life ruined with a false rape accusation.

Watching Fox News at lunch in the gym. Plenty of war cheerleading. No O'Reilly mentions.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Tomi Lahren? She's good at speaking Tweets into the camera. Her intuition isn't in the same realm as cable news pundits. It takes a lot of time to curate the wit that it takes to run your own show. Tomi Lahren on Fox News would be a new low. Maybe as a contributor or frequent The Five guest.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

If they really wanted to shift the image from partisan cheerleader/prime time entertainment, they'd jettison Hannity and pick from this lineup (only they'd spell the names correctly:

Martha McCallum
Brit Hume
Harris Faulkner
Sheppard Smith
Dana Perrino
Brett Baier


Haven't watched the network in months, so maybe Tucker Carlson has improved from his O'Reilly-lite style. And obviously, the network isn't going to raid all of its "hard news" talent such as Smith to stick in prime time slots. But it would be an interesting experiment to see if audience would stick with a new lineup of folks with more of a journalistic reputation.

Market research will likely have them going with those leaning more to the partisan side (Bolling, etc.). Brit Hume has a bit of gravitas but he's been a regular O'Reilly guest and fits the partisan role and the grouchy crank image. As someone mentioned, Perino may just project too "nice" an image for the prime time partisan audience.

Faulkner would give them a two-fer as a black woman if they're looking to improve their profile.

You do know date rape is in fact rape, right?

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Don't forget, BillO once strangled his ex-wife while their daughter watched.

Quote:
Q: In the course of your meetings with the children, did either of them describe any incidents of domestic violence between their parents?

A: Yes.

Q: And who was that?

A: M. reported—having seeing an incident where I believe she said her dad was choking her mom or had his hands around her neck and dragged her down some stairs.

Q: And?

MR. CLAIR: Your Honor, to the extent that that incident as alleged may have predated the signing of the agreement.

THE COURT: Counsel. Counsel, she asked the question, we got the answer. Let’s move on.

And let's not forget about the harassment lawsuit from 2004. There was audio tape on that one. "Rub that falafel thing. . ."

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

I think Carlson has got worse, he does this trick where he turns off earpieces of those who he is interviewing so they don't really hear what he's saying .

Give me a fucking break with this bullshit.

No one, NO-fucking-ONE pays out twelve million-fucking-dollars to settle a false allegation.
