- JEALOUS? Erik Wemple of the Washington Post: “Kill Fox & Friends Before it’s Too Late”
- Wemple: President Trump takes his cues from the dreadful morning program on Fox News. Or miscues
- The reliance of the president on “Fox & Friends,” already well established, took on a bit more menace
JEALOUS LIBS! Well known fact President Trump likes to watch Fox & Friends, then he would shoot a tweet based on what he saw from the show, then liberal media go nuts! Repeat cycle of watch, shoot and media explode.
On July 10, WaPo writer Erik Wemple just can’t take it anymore he finally found a solution: ‘Kill Fox & Friends’. Wemple considers it a menace the reliance of president Trump on “Fox & Friends,” an already well established fact.
If Trump watches official fake news network CNN and official unhinged network MSNBC, no way this loony WaPo hack would complain.
Sean Hannity unleashed a tweetstorm on the Washington Post writer, calling him a disgrace.
From Washington Post :
Back when regular people watched “Fox & Friends,” it was bad enough to warrant killing the show. Back in those pre-Trump-presidency days, the program merely distorted the news in ways that reflected poorly on President Barack Obama.
President Trump takes his cues from the dreadful morning program on Fox News. Or miscues
The republic managed to survive the awfulness.
Again, “Fox & Friends” and Trump prove what a noxious combination they’ve become. The former churns out questionable information or mere pro-Trump cheerleading, and the latter amplifies it. Thus far, this symbiosis has clarified just what “Fox & Friends” is — a propaganda mill — and the type of media coverage the president fancies — straight-up sycophancy.
….Left to its own devices, “Fox & Friends” could do far more damage, unless it’s killed.
This is a weird post from Sean Hannity: “Did Hannity do last show?”
Uh oh My ANNUAL Memorial Day long weekend starts NOW. Destroy Trump/Conservative media breathless coverage starts! Did Hannity do last show?
If Fox News is going to fire Hannity, time to drop your cable subscription!
BOYCOTT THEM BACK! Liberal NAZIS like George Soros funded Media Matters has targeted Sean Hannity calling advertisers to pull out because of his Seth Rich coverage and today seven companies decided to do so.
After cars.com announce that it was pulling its commercials from Hannity show, six other advertisers followed suit, according to the New York Daily News.
They include two mattress companies, Leesa and Casper; exercise bike maker Peloton; military family insurer USAA; Crowne Plaza Hotels; and Ring, which provides outdoor home security.
BOYCOTT THESE COMPANIES! TIME TO SHOW OUR OUTRAGE!
Fox News has lost yet another personality after a complaint lodged by another Fox employee.
Bob Beckel, cohost of The Five, was fired Friday after an internal investigation stemming specifically from interaction with an African American IT coworker in New York on Tuesday.
Beckel, 68, has been accused of a pattern of insensitive and racist behavior and will be the subject of a forthcoming lawsuit by the IT employee, according to a statement released by Wigdor LLP on Friday.
‘Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,’ the network said in a statement.
Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, partners at Wigdor LLP, released a statement Friday detailing what they say happened leading up to Beckel’s firing.
‘Mr Beckel stormed out of his office when our client, a Black IT employee came to service his computer, telling our client that he was leaving his office because he is Black.
‘To make matters worse, after our client lodged a complaint about Mr Beckel’s racist behavior, Mr Beckel, in front of Chief Human Resource Officer Kevin Lord, attempted to intimidate our client and persuade him to withdraw his complaint. Because he would not do so, Fox, in what has now become common place, leaked the story on a Friday to minimize the attention drawn to Mr Beckel’s racist behavior.
A person close to the matter at Fox said the following:
‘HR was informed of the incident on Tuesday evening and did a thorough investigation within 48 hours of the matter. We came to a decision that Bob needed to be terminated early this morning.’
( Daily Mail ) Roger Ailes, the former chairman and CEO of Fox News, has died at the age of 77, eight days after falling and hitting his head at his Florida mansion.
Ailes’ death comes less than a year after he resigned from the network he founded over allegations of sexual harassment.
His wife Elizabeth, with whom he has one 16-year-old son, broke the news on Thursday with a statement to Matt Drudge:
‘I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many.
‘He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise – and to give back.
‘During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions.
‘And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life,’ the statement reads.
Ailes, who was a hemophiliac, died about a week after falling and hitting his head in the bathroom of his Palm Beach, Florida home, according to an incident report.
The report say they got a call from Ailes’ residence just before 2pm on May 10. The caller said that Ailes was bleeding heavily on the ground and was not responding to questions. Paramedics arrived within a minute and he was taken to a hospital.
- Martha on interviewing Trump: “He has an energy that is very interesting as an interviewer. .. he has a way of darting across a number of topics in his answers. You can go in a number of different ways to follow up because he’s touching on four, five, six things in an answer.”
EXCLUSIVE: Martha MacCallum on What It’s Like to Interview Trump
May 04, 2017 // 10:10am
Fresh off her busy week on the road, Martha MacCallum chatted with Insider about her big interview with President Donald Trump, the launch of her new primetime show on Fox News Channel and more.
Take a look at the Q&A below and don’t miss “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” weeknights at 7pm ET.
You’ve interviewed President Trump before, along with many presidential candidates and White House officials over the years. But how did it feel to interview a sitting president at the White House?
“I realized the day before: this is the first time I’m in the White House interviewing a sitting president, the 45th person to hold the job. It’s a historic moment just to sit there and look across at someone who is part of that panoply of the history our country. It definitely struck me as a significant moment for me.”
What’s different about interviewing President Trump?
“He has an energy that is very interesting as an interviewer. Most people take in your question, they try to answer it, then you follow up. But he has a way of darting across a number of topics in his answers. You can go in a number of different ways to follow up because he’s touching on four, five, six things in an answer.”
How does that unpredictability affect how you prepare for the interview as a journalist?
“With him, it sort of takes on a life of its own because he really engages in conversation with you. You go in there with as much as you can in your head and a few things in front of you and then rely on the research you’ve done. You really can’t anticipate what he’s going to say. You have to be ready to engage, sort of like fencing. It’s very different.
Are there any behind-the-scenes moments you could share from the interview?
“Anyone in the room, the president took the time to take a picture with them. That struck me. I think he recognizes it’s an important moment for any American to be in that special place, the People’s House, and he wants them to enjoy that moment. Keep in mind, his people are looking at him going, ‘Um, Mr. President, we’re an hour late.'”

ROGER AILES story:
( Daily Mail ) Separately, a source told Mediaite that ‘high-powered television executives’ are plotting a new conservative news network because Fox is allegedly becoming too left of center.
‘I’m working on it hot and heavy,’ the source said. ‘It’s live, it’s real.’
The channel could be ready for airwaves in 10 months, the source said.
This news comes as New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman asserts that two sources close to Ailes, 76, say he would like to get back into TV.
And considering the recent firing of Bill O’Reilly, 67, from Fox News and Tomi Lahren, 24, from The Blaze, coupled with suggestions from Mediaite that Sean Hannity will not have ‘a long relationship’ with Fox, there are multiple potential new anchors galore for a new channel.
The change in direction at Fox News is primarily attributed to Rupert Murdoch’s sons James, 44, and Lachlan, 45.
James serves as CEO of Fox News parent company 20th Century Fox while Lachlan serves as co-chairman.
The Rupert Murdoch sons, James and Lachlan, who allegedly are taking Fox News to the left.
From New York Times :
In House of Murdoch,
Sons Set About an
Since taking over two years ago, James and Lachlan
Murdoch seem determined to rid the company of the
old-guard culture on which their father built his empire.
….James and Lachlan introduced additional benefits, including more paid vacation, vastly enhanced reproductive coverage for women and “expanded coverage for our transgender colleagues.”
…When they first took over, they stepped gingerly around Fox News. James and his progressive-minded wife, Kathryn, have long been embarrassed by certain elements of Fox News, associates said, while Lachlan’s views of the network have been more in line with his father’s. Both sons were willing to tolerate the freewheeling Fox News culture because of the enormous profit the channel generates.
….James and Kathryn Murdoch — whose Twitter feed shows disdain for President Trump — are also building what has been called a survivalist compound in rural Canada that has its own water and energy supply.
…The brothers are radically different in style. James is a speed-talking, tightly wound technophile — cool and calculating, to the degree that he can come across as slick, several associates said. Fashion forward, James socializes with young technology kingpins like Elon Musk, a founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX.
