Laura Ingraham, the radio host and Fox News commentator, is about to become a prime time host on the conservative cable network. Ingraham is expected to take over the 10 p.m. hour on Fox News, according to people who spoke on condition of anonymity. While there may be one or two final details to negotiate, Ingraham has been telling friends that the deal is essentially done, the sources said. Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network´s top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity´s show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9
Comments: Not confirmed yet. Hannity would move to earlier slot time slot.
Since FNC has been kicking CNN in ratings can since when God was a kid, you´d think perhaps CNN might figure out that maybe if they thought that way about their programming, they might start out drawing the Nick Jr. cartoon reruns.
Fox is accustomed to winning every hour of every day, thanks to its incredibly loyal right-leaning audience, so the shifting of Hannity may be an attempt to fortify the 9 p.m. time slot.
That incredibly loyal right-leaning audience is not going to last if the younger Murdochs keep leaning left and refusing to stand by their hosts in the face of all of these false allegations. They´ll end up being like the NFL with half empty stadiums.
Fox placed the five back at five O´clock? Who runs this network.? Who named a show the specialists? Who fired Bolling & O´Reilly? Who kept pushing Hannity´s show back & forth? Who hired Kate, Eboni, Juan Wms, Geraldo, Dana, Shep, Bob Beckley, Ezekiel, Who pushed Hannity back & pushed Megyn Kelly in?Sorry I´ll pass on Fox, they lost me during the presidential election. At one time Fox had a great network with great people.
they put Eric Bolling through all that hell and now he is going through a far worse tribulation, having lost his precious son -
so, Fox News is SO worried about Eric Bolling and some pictures texted on his phone but they won´t even stand up for him -
and why didn´t these women come out with their complaints back when all the other things were being discussed at Fox (most notably, Gretchen Carlson and Roger Ailes) - why were they silent?
Aren´t you supposed to report it when someone has sexually harassed you in the workplace so that they are not enabled to continue their pattern of abuse? You´re not supposed to wait until that to see if you might possibly get your own show or some other reward for silence.
So, Fox News did this to Eric Bolling
Meanwhile, Kimberly Guilfoyle was on there again today with what I think I would call a hair-bra -
she has the two front sides of her hair grown long and full (maybe they are extensions) and they are draped on either side of her bust, like apostrophes or would you say, brackets?
Ah, then of course at the end of the show, they had some thoughtful things to say about Eric -
five people purportedly intelligent people and not one of you can see where all this is going?
Tomorrow - stay tuned - let´s see what dress Kimberly Guilfoyle wears with her hair-bra
Does anybody remember Laura´s first disastrous attempt at a show on Fox? It was at 50 and lasted just a few weeks in 2008. Leaked videos showed her as a vicious harridan. I´ve quit listening to her radio show and I´ll pass on her new show.
Although I love her commentaries on Fox, she substituted for Tucker and was quite unwatchable. Unless she improves her delivery, this will not end well for her. She was manic at times and abrasive. Hopefully, she will settle down and learn to speak with a less strident tone. She makes excellent points but if she is not watchable, they get lost. She definitely has the knowledge. She needs to work on her delivery. A speech coach would help to tone down the nasal quality to her voice.
To the posters who comment on her manic, nasal voice:
She is from Connecticut (as is Ann Coulter), and that is her style. It works MUCH better on radio than TV (although I find her very attractive to look at). As noted, an over-the-top delivery style doesn´t work for long on TV. The occasional guest host spot works well, but long-term it could be a turn-off.
I wonder if she will keep her radio show, since she is a single mom with 2 (or 3?) adopted kids to take care of. This would be a long work day.
I would like Lisa Boothe and Trish Regan to combine to have a new show. I think Ingraham will need some sort of partner. The Five will obviously go back to 5 PM. I think this move is more to get Hannity at 9 PM.
Laura Ingraham is far too confrontational and strident to be watchable on a regular basis. She´s worse than O´Reilly for interrupting and arguing. Tucker Carlson argues, but in a way that isn´t a turnoff.
Well... I guess it will be interesting. I dunno, I stopped watching Fox after they made the big programming changes. FNC is on the ropes and needs to do something. I don´t think this is a bad move... yet. Ratings will tell, but frankly if Fox News is going to do something meaningful, they need to get rid of Rupert´s little Rat-Baggers who are making MSNBC look good!
I like Laura but don´t record any outtakes. She must have convinced Fox of no more meltdowns. She can be hard to work with. She´s known for going through the most producers in the business. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3lCfHtaR30
I´m going to have a very hard time forgiving FOX for the way they treated Eric Bolling. IF they had produced NAMES AND PROOF of the accusations against him, I would have been ok with it. But to treat him that way, which it looks like indirectly could have caused his son´t suicide is unforgivable! He and his wife will never recover. Right now I´m hating FOX!
No I don´t like her body language when she goes on the attack. I quit listening to her radio show because of her rants and her appearances on shows when she telegraphs with her lower jaw going slack before the response and cuts people off like BO would do. I haven´t viewed Fox since the debates and I thank Megyn Kelley for that I´ll remain removed from all television news including Fox. Fox Business in the early morning and I´m done for the day.
I think it´s a great move and will be watching. Don´t believe the bitter Never Trumper´s excuses, they loathe Laura because she supports President Trump and said mean things about that dolt Romney after he blew it in 2012.
Like others here, I greatly reduced watching Fox News after the Megyn fiasco, the start of The Five, the promotion of Perino and Stirewalt (how snarky can one get?), etc. I like Tucker, but we all know the Left is hypocritical, etc. so I don´t need to be reminded of it. Martha has her moments but I primarily watch Lou Dobbs at 7pm - although how much Ed Rollins can one watch? I do miss Greta though.
I Like Laura and feel she has grown since her early days in broadcasting. Even her voice has improved with seasoning. If this is going to be another political talk show...it´s doomed. There needs to be a hook or something different about it. Please no more panels. How about making it all conservative.
In the past couple of years political talk shows and cable 24 hour news has lost it´s luster. No need to know when so predictable and repetitive. I would rather read a book, watch a movie or go on Lucianne.
Because of birth-order, I will usually suspect something which LOOKS like it´ll be good for me at first. What if the new owners want to help her to fail at this slot in order to prove their demented point?
Then she either opened her eyes or began compromising her stands to soften more towards the call of the RINOs.
I admire the fight she put up against W Bush´s amnesty call. It failed, only to be given the "end around" by Nobama and his illegal CACA plan for illegals.
We are not finding old clips of Hitlery and Bubba defending the idea of border security that had been somehow "forgotten" since the new focus on giving illegals 20-somethings amnesty came into fashion.
Good Luck to her, but Fox has walked away from where I want to spend my time. Others watch it religiously, like people drawn to the Weather Channel to see destruction and devastation and being pushed aside for discussion of how we are being taken away from important things by RAKE news.
I was an early watcher of The Five when it aired at 5. But I quickly tired of Juan Williams and his pathetic facial expressions and almost always disagreed with his position on issues. Also quickly tired of Dana´s constant chatter about her dog. Still love Gutfeld, but the rest of the crew turned me off forever.
Tesla said it would rather spend money on litigation and “fight to the ends of the Earth” than give in to what it called extortion and abuse of the legal system connected to a recent lawsuit alleging racism at the company’s factory in Fremont, Calif. Tesla earlier this week was hit by a class-action lawsuit by former worker Marcus Vaughn, calling the company a hotbed of racist behavior. That was the latest legal action involving allegations of racism at Tesla. In a blog post late Monday, Tesla sought to contest certain allegations in the lawsuit and said that it takes
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A major blackout hit Puerto Rico´s most populated region on Wednesday just as the government announced it had met its goal of 50 percent power generation nearly two months after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category 4 storm. The Electric Power Authority said it dispatched crews to investigate why a key 230 kilovolt line that connects the island´s northern and southern regions had failed for the second time in a week. The blackout affected the capital of San Juan and nearby cities and towns along the U.S. territory´s north coast, provoking a groan from people
MINNEAPOLIS – A 20-year-old Minneapolis man is facing assault charges after allegedly stabbing two men in a fitting room at Macy’s at the Mall of America Sunday night. Mahad Abdiraham was charged with two counts of first-degree assault causing great bodily harm in connection with the incident. According to the charges, a 19-year-old man who was with at family members at the Mall of America to shop came out of a dressing room to show his family pants he was thinking of buying. When the man returned to the dressing room, Abdiraham was near the room and appeared as if
America´s political establishment just will not take a hint. The latest evidence is the growing buzz surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden´s potential presidential candidacy in 2020. Appearing in a series of interviews for his new book, Biden is now not ruling out a run for the White House.One question: Why is this anything other than a joke?It´s one thing to be depressed and disappointed about Donald Trump´s victory, but have these people forgotten everything we learned from the 2016 election?Apparently so. Not only did the ultimate outsider win the election, but the second most formidable force throughout the contest
Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she
A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy. Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student. He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth. The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment. Mr Sutcliffe, who teaches children aged between 11 and 18, said the incident took place on 2 November. He said a week-long investigation found he had
For Democrats, signs everywhere suddenly look rosy. They won smashing victories last week in Virginia and other states. With voters giving the Trump presidency and the Republican-led Congress dismal grades, and the Democratic grass roots re-energized, hope is widespread for a takeover of the House of Representatives and a strong run in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections. (Snip) What’s more, the electoral landscape is tilted against them for reasons besides gerrymandering. Liberal voters and racial minorities tend to be clustered in major cities and their suburbs, concentrating the Democratic base in a smaller number of congressional districts, even
RICHMOND, Va. — Unease over violent white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville this summer and President Donald Trump´s response loomed in the minds of many Virginia voters during Tuesday´s elections in which Democrats made significant gains, according to progressive advocacy groups and interviews with voters. The governor´s race was one of Virginia´s most racially charged in recent memory, and voters were peppered with ads that referenced the August violence. (Snip) In the governor´s race, Northam´s TV attacks on Gillespie focused more on his lobbying career than racial issues, but a Northam mailer lumped Gillespie in with the torch-wielding white supremacists in
Sign of the times in Rome: the city´s cash-strapped administration is eyeing up the coins tossed by tourists into the celebrated Trevi Fountain. Previously swept up and handed over to Catholic charity Caritas, the coins, which can add up to as much as a million euros a year, will now be claimed by Mayor Virginia Raggi for projects to be decided by a city hall working group, according to reports in the local media on Friday. Legend has it that anyone who lobs a piece of change into the nearly 300-year-old fountain while facing away from the Baroque masterpiece is
Calling violence in Baltimore “out of control,” Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered 30 agency heads to meet every morning at police headquarters, and to make crime reduction the top mission not only of police, but also of health workers, housing officials and public works crews. (Snip) Killings in the city have surged past 300 this year for a third year in a row. Violent crime is up 13 percent over last year, and reports of groups of youths attacking people apparently at random have dominated recent local news cycles. Pugh said she was calling on businesses and philanthropies to help fund
When it comes to holiday shopping sprees, Black Friday is no longer the prime event. A new analysis finds that more shoppers are choosing to spread out their holiday purchases rather than stick with the ritual of rising before dawn the morning after Thanksgiving in order to stand in line outside a store and then shop until they drop. During the week that includes Thanksgiving, 35% of shoppers say they intend to do most of their shopping on Black Friday this year, down from 59% in 2015, according to the analysis released Tuesday by consultancy PwC. Retailers are rolling out deep-discount deals, the "doorbusters" that were
The Republican members of the elite Winged Foot Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, are angry after the club management refused to honor and put up a portrait of President Donald Trump in the club. Trump is a member of the elite club that charges as much as $200,000 as its initiation fees, and the Republicans among the 800 members of the club have been asking to have a POTUS portrait hung inside the clubhouse. According to Page Six, an insider at the club said, "Trump has been a member of this club since 1969, and there is a
In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities. On a good day, I´m elated — empowered and inspired by the many women who have courageously opened the floodgates to help end the shroud of silence and shame that surrounds victims of sexual assault and harassment. I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change. On a bad day, I´m despondent — devastated and angry that so many of the people who were rightly outraged over Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were utterly disbelieving
Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery. (Photo) The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.” “Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor. “”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added. Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way. The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced
Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is said to be considering appointing a second special counsel to investigate issues related to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and the Obama administration. Sessions´ contemplation comes after the House Judiciary Chairman urged him to look into Comey´s handling of the FBI´s investigation into Clinton´s email use, the 2010 Uranium One deal, and the Clinton Foundation. Trump has repeatedly called Sessions a "weak" attorney general and pushed him to investigate Clinton and the Democrats as the FBI investigates Trump and his campaign for possible collusion with Moscow during the 2016
The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated
When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that the entire U.S. House will now face mandatory training to avoid sexual harassment and discrimination, moving to address the growing national scandal over behavior ranging from the boorish to the criminal. His comments came hours after a House committee held a hearing on harassment. Mr. Ryan said the House will now have a policy of mandatory training for every lawmaker and every staffer. “Our goal is not only to raise awareness, but also make abundantly clear that harassment in any form has no place in this institution,” he said.
Environment: This week, thousands of scientists issued a bleak and terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action. If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about. In an article published in the journal Bioscience, 15,364 scientists warned that we are "jeopardizing our future" and that "immediate action" is needed to "safeguard our imperiled biosphere." "Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out," the scientists say. The article
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
