Bill Hemmer has for years been the faithful morning co-anchor at Fox News Channel, boosting the profiles of time-slot partners like Megyn Kelly, Martha MacCallum and Shannon Bream. Now he's set to step into his own solo spotlight. Hemmer will take over the 3pm timeslot previously anchored by Shepard Smith, the last stage of a much-scrutinized transition at the Fox News. The appointment was applauded by the President who took to Twitter to share his approval: 'A great choice. Bill is a winner!' he wrote.

I would frequently get home around 3pm and turn on the tv to see what's happening. I saw Shep and turned off the TV. I'll try again now.

Hemmer always seemed like a decent guy to me. I wish him well and hope he doesn't fall into the dark side.

FTA about Shep Smith "with a no-nonsense, down-the-middle brand of reportage." Not the Shep Smith I remember.

What a pleasant change! Finally someone worth watching at 3pm. What took Fox News so long to dump the simpleton Shef Smythie? They lost a lot of people over the past 10 - 15 years with that has been that was on the eponymous Shef Report - sooooo boring.

Now if FOX would just listen to those of us who have been with them from the beginning and get rid of The Judge and Juan Williams. It seems to take years for FOX to wake up to the fact that we're turning off our TV sets when those Two come on the screen. Remember Bob (can't remember his last name) who was on the Original The Five? He was a Drunk, Addict and always came unprepared and sometimes looked like he was sleeping on the set. He was undoubtedly in a Drug or Alcoholic stupor, yet they kept him on until he had to go into Rehab and the story came out for all to read! Now we are seeing more and more new Liberal faces appear. We are looking for another conservative channel to take the place FOX! If that happens, I hope some of our favorites will jump ship and go to a more favorable environment!

The 3 PM time slot doesn't seem very attractive to me but maybe that is just because of the central time zone I live in.

A good move. Hemmer seems like a down-home, aw-shucks, next-door-neighbor kind of guy which is a bit deceiving because I've seen him conduct some razor-edged interviews. He zeroes in on and goes for the throat when someone panders with fluff or spin, but he does it in a nice-guy way that completely flummoxes his guest.

Looks like someone at FOX has sobered up and wants to remain on top. Good choice, he is an honest man and I am not sure of his position on a lot of things, which tells me he is a good journalist.

Gee, now I can watch Fox in the afternoons, if I want to. Previously, when Smith's face showed up, the channel changed as soon as I could reach the remote, or the power went off, either way Smith was NOT going to be on my TV. Huge improvement for Fox. Good riddance.

Shameful Shep cried the most tears of any of them on election night 2016. I followed the entire coverage to the end and watched him go from jubilation to deep despair. Even Wolf Blitzer held up better. The MSNBCABCCBS coverage I, of course, did not watch but the clips of their disappointment that were subsequently put together was very entertaining.

Very good choice. Interesting man, I saw O'Reilly interview him once. Was stunned to find out that he spent a year working with Mother Theresa. Maybe Fox finally gets it.

If I watch anything on Fox or any channel anymore, it’s Bill Hemmer. I have no clue as to his politics and that’s the way it should be. Good choice Fox.

As the House Judiciary Committee moves closer to voting on two articles of impeachment against President Trump, Senate Republicans are mulling "two choices," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday. So here's what I would anticipate. The House managers would come over, make their arguments; the president's lawyers would then respond, and at that point, the Senate has two choices. It could go down the path of calling witnesses and basically having another trial; or it could decide -- and again, 51 members

To say that We the People are outraged over the Democrats baseless absurd articles of impeachment against our president would be an understatement. Candidly, I've had to talk my feisty Irish/Cherokee wife down from throwing a brick through our TV.

We're smearing his a** with impeachment and y'all can't stop us.The most infuriating thing about Democrats and fake news medias' fake outrage over Trump's alleged crimes is everyone knows Trump has done nothing wrong.

As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors. I respect the office and understand just how tough the job can be. But recently, Attorney General William P. Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office.

A federal judge has blocked President Trump from diverting Pentagon funds from various military projects toward building a wall on the United States's southern border. Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas issued the block in response to a lawsuit by El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights."The President's emergency proclamation was a blatant attempt to grab power from Congress. Today's order affirms that the President is not a king and that our courts are willing to check him when he oversteps his bounds," Kristy Parker, an attorney for the litigants, said in a statement.Secretary of Defense Mark Esper approved

This release led to years of 'demeaning' tweets from President Trump, forced Page into therapy and left her looking for work, the lawsuit said.

Senate Republicans are weighing a speedy impeachment trial that could include no witnesses for President Trump’s legal team or for House Democrats. The discussions come as the House is moving forward with articles of impeachment against Trump, teeing up a trial in the Senate that would start in January. The White House has indicated publicly that it has a wish list of potential witnesses, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Hunter Biden and the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. But Republican senators, including Trump allies and members of leadership, appear reluctant to drag themselves through a drawn-out trial with messy procedural votes when the outcome appears pre-baked.
