Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,
Comments: Excellent! Megyn Kelly is an outstanding addition to their primetime line-up. That must really hurt Hannity´s ego. Hannity has become tiresome. He let´s pundits bicker constantly that is so very annoying and he repeats the same thing over and over again.
I quit listening to Hannity and Colmes because all Colmes could come up with were the Democrat talking points.
Lately I´ve quit listening to Hannity because all he can come up with are Conservative talking points. I agree with most of them, but the constant refrain is boring, boring, boring. Rush and Levin have original thoughts, but Hannity could be replaced by a tape recorder of sound bites.
Hannity is a principled conservative who worked his way up. Greta is a lib who would be better off returning to CNN. Megyn is also a lawyer and more grounded. Greta´s too close to Dem insiders and a Scientologist. -a dangerous cult. No wonder she doesn´t go after the Islamists.
Poor Hannity. He will find the need to go back to taping shipping paper on his bedroom windows to block the sun. This downward turn will only force him to find the drive to excel and learn for his future endeavors.
Doubt FoxNews will be dumping Hannity. Lots of people like him. Actually, he seems to be getting more watchable and listenable as time goes by, although I rarely watch. No doubt Megyn is cuter for non- gay male watchers. Unless you look at the photo on Drudge. She is kind of novel as a recovering liberal, as least presenting herself that way. No doubt Hannity will comment this afternoon.
Who says Hannity is going anywhere. It is possible that the two of them will host the show. I read that Sean just signed a long term contract with Fox, so he is probably not leaving. Although the time slots could be shuffled around.
I can´t watch windbag oreilly because he cuddles up to the dems too much. I almost can´t watch Sean because he interrupts his guests too much and he blabs on and on and on repeating his question before each sentence or comment from his guest. I wish I had a "mute" button so I could silence Sean and let the guest speak. I love Sean´s spirit and viewpoint though.
Big Megyn fan and hoped this was her time slot. Hannity still gets best ratings next to O´Reilly, and Greta is next. If you watch her, you would know shes no liberal, no matter what above poster says. She always has on good guests and unlike Hannity and O´Reilly actually lets them talk. Hannity has become tiresome, and overexposed, but really think Shep Smith is worse, so hope that is where Sean will go.. to the 7 time slot.
Was hoping she´d replace Greta and Greta would replace Shep.
As for Hannity, yeah I´m getting tires of a lot of his schtick. His radio show has turned into a joke, bringing on libs and then talking over them.
You can´t change a lib, so don´t bring them on in the first place. They have plenty of other venues to vent their opinions on, let´s concentrate on getting the best people we can get into place and get them into office.
Since his days in Australia, decades ago, Murdock´s laser focus has always been on entertainment never philosophy, to gin up his bottom line; precisely what FOX News is. Fox´s lineup is about as conservative as the republican party i.e. close to zero. Sad the number who get their daily ration of ´truth´ from these third rate yip-yap artists.
#10 beat me to it. Hannity is impossible to listen to on the radio because of his repetitiveness, but the TV show has been good at times because he does a few novel things once in a while. Greta is truly fair and balanced, IMO. She asks the same tough questions of every guest, and I like that she gives Rush and Sarah Palin time on her show.
Megyn Kelly can be good, but the outrage is sometimes forced, IMO. I was really angry with her on election night 2012 when she so chirpily announced Obama had won reelection. I wanted to smack the smile right off her face!
Shep is totally unwatchable, and hysterical. He already has the 3 pm show, so get rid of him!
Let Sean go to the 70 slot in place of Shep Smith. I haven´t had any use for him since Katrina. He blew it for me then and I have never looked back. He never apologized for being so wrong about something so important.
Megyn will quickly turn off viewers with her gigantic ego. Sean has all the right views but is boring, interrupts guests, asks questions in the form of blowhard, "don´t you agree with me that yadayada...". People, find something better to do in the evenings. Maybe read a book.
Funny, they wouldn´t even THINK of replacing shep. Kelly paid her liberal dues earlier this year with some feminist kerfuffle. Now it is a complete take over by liberals. Fox news is just an msnbc wannabee.
If we were in Britain the bookies would start placing bets on what the new lineup will be. Here´s my guess: Newsreader SHEP has 2 shows; bet he loses the 7pm, to Greta, followed by OReilly at 8, Megyn at 9, Hannity at 10
Shep Smith is the worst of them all and should move on to CNN or ABC. O´Reilly is a gas bag and is getting stale. Hannity interrupts guests because the liberals he has on never would shut up if NOT interrupted. Motor mouths who monopolize the air time, never giving the conservative an opportunity to speak. I like Hannity.
Do you know what I watch in the evenings? Not the news. Im burnt out on politics so when the evenings comes around its hello to A&E, History Channel, Destination America. Not FNC or the Blaze. Im done for the day.
Fox New´s lineup has been in need of a freshening up. WHile I dont spend a lot of time watching Fox or any other news outlet for that matter, I see enough of Fox that it is time to juggle some of their hosts around and freshen the network´s look.
Had to laugh at #37, since I´ve heard Hannity stumbling on the radio, too, reading comments that are meant to sound off the cuff. I think they´re all in it for the money. Politicians, pundits - no difference.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of President Obama´s Obamacare "strike team," says it´s a "good thing" that people are losing their old health care plans: "Because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn´t meet the minimum standards. That´s just not a theoretical discussion. There´s a reason you have minimum standards. There are people out there who have insurance that´s really an illusion of coverage. They have immense deductibles, they have annual and lifetime caps. There´s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies and the fact that they´re going to lose those
Fresh off his interview with President Barack Obama, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Now with Alex Wagner to review what the president said and to express his thoughts on the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Matthews linked the GOP to South Africa’s white apartheid advocates and declared that those who facilitated the transition to Mandela’s presidency were more patriotic and had greater regard for their country than the Republicans in Congress. Matthews acknowledged a point that Rev. Al Sharpton had made earlier in this broadcast where he noted that the last apartheid president, F.W. de Klerk, recognized
The Obama administration knew as early as August that the small-business portal on healthcare.gov would not be ready by the Oct. 1 launch, but delayed admitting those problems until Nov. 27, according to documents released by House Republicans on Friday. In one colorful email exchange in mid-August, Henry Chao, the administration official charged with the development of the online insurance marketplaces, expressed frustration with delays from the private contractor working on the website. When the contractor suggested a new date of Nov. 15 for the launch of the small-business portal of the website, Chao bluntly asked: “Can we sign this
The White House dismissed a report suggesting that President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did not meet ahead of the botched rollout of Obamacare. Obama press secretary Jay Carney said the claim was based on a “ridiculously false premise.” “Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president,” he said. “She’s here a lot and meets with the president with regularity.” “It’s safe to say Secretary Sebelius spent a lot of time here,” he added, noting the administration’s focus on health care reform. The report from Politico Magazine noted that a Government Accountability Institute analysis of the president’s
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
