… Big Shock on their News Agenda [#CBS] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 20th,2014

.. not surprising , given her comments .

.. Sharyl Attkisson was interviewed on the O ‘ Reilly Factor the other night . She is now free to shop her services elsewhere since she has left C.B.S. . That is lucky for most of us , since (maybe) someone like FoxNews will swoop in and scoop her up …

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the interview footage …

.. she is good , really good at what she does . It will be interesting to see where she ends up landing …

… Congratulations to Megyn Kelly !! [FoxNews] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 8th,2013

.. and her new show , the Kelly Files .

.. Ever since I first heard of her (as Megyn Kendall) , she was amazing and dynamic . She was first a lawyer , then a news reporter at ABC . Then , she became FoxNews ‘ legal correspondent , chiefly covering the federal courts in general , and the U.S. Supreme Court , in particular . Eventually , she was moved to the afternoon , given her own show at FoxNews . That was only the beginning .

.. Now she has been promoted into primetime . It will be interesting to see what happens . I do intend to watch and see , most every night  …

… Nice Touch , Brit ! [Hume Commens on Capital vs Obama] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 31st,2013

.. Brit Hume has always been a master wordsmith . Even when he was just a working class corresponedent at the White House for ABC Snooze , it was always entertaining to watch him go at it with Wilhelm der Fibmeister [Bill Clinton] . Not many people could pin Mr . Bill down that easily , or , better yet , piss Wilhelm off the way Brit does . But he did .

.. Brit Hume was evidently one of Roger Ailes ‘ first choices to come on board at Fox News when they opened shop in the summer of 1996 . He not only appreciated his conservative philosophy , but his professionalism . Also , Ailes knew that Brit was one of Jack Anderson ‘ s “boys,” and was also a disciple of Bob Novak . It meant that he would be a top – flight professional , an excellent “shoe – leather” beat reporter , and would keep it up , no matter how difficult the target or the issue .

.. Barack Obama is no different . Brit spent 15 years as the anchor of Special Report on FoxNewsChannel , and did a fabulous job , in my opinion . He is even more dangerous , now , as FoxNews ‘ Anchor Emeritus and Senior Commentator . He gets to be a commentator , doing what he does best , and duke it out with other people on the issues .

.. In the case with this video , Brit takes POTUS to school , and gives him a world class spanking . Brit reminds you-know-who that before you can distribute or , even , redistribute capital , you have to create it , first . A large part of that is creating the conditions to encourage capital formation . It includes human capital (people and their educations) , along with physical capital (physical investments) , and financial capital (investment $$) . And Obama is a world – class loser at that .

… Bravo , Roger , Bravo ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 24th,2013

.. Roger Ailes is the founder and president of FoxNewsChannel , and then FoxBusinessNews . Unlike about any time in its history , FNC & FBN are under fire like never before . The ObamaCrap Department of Injustice is , I believe , abusing its power by sending out (issuing) a subpoena to phone companies for information about FNC and FBN under seal . They did so without any legal notice or due process to NewsCorp or to FoxNews at all .

.. Normally , this legal notice and process is standard . They decided to do this under the Espionage Act , of all things . The Espionage Act . They knew who the leaker was . They did not need much more info . And , yet they decided to go after all of this stuff , in secret , under seal , and without due process .

.. Roger Ailes responded this afternoon , in an e – mail to his employees at NewsCorp and Fox …

Dear colleagues,

The recent news about the FBI’s seizure of the phone and email records of Fox   News employees, including James Rosen, calls into    question whether the federal government is meeting its constitutional obligation to preserve and protect a free press in the United States. We reject the government’s efforts to criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter   to a   Federal judge as a “co-conspirator” in a crime. I know how concerned you are  because so many of you have asked me: why should the government make me afraid to   use a work phone or email account to gather news or even call a friend or family member ? Well, they shouldn’t have done it. The administration’s attempt to  intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time. We will not   allow a climate of press intimidation, unseen since the McCarthy era, to frighten   any of us away from the truth.

I am proud of your tireless effort to report the news over the last 17 years. I   stand with you, I support you and I thank you for your reporting with courageous optimism. Too many Americans fought and died to protect our unique American right   of press freedom. We can’t and we won’t forget that. To be an American journalist   is not only a great responsibility, but also a great honor. To be a Fox journalist   is a high honor, not a high crime. Even this memo of support will cause some to demonize us and try to find irrelevant things to cause us to waver. We will   not waver.

As Fox News employees, we sometimes are forced to stand alone, but even then   when we know we are reporting what is true and what is right, we stand proud   and fearless.

Thank you for your hard work and all your efforts.

Sincerely ,

Roger Ailes
