Geraldo Rivera stopped by Fox & Friends‘ curvy couch on Friday, where he was asked about the fact that an Iranian jet attack on U.S. drones had gone unreported until a week after the election. (Snip) “It is officially an act of war; I agree with that,” said Rivera. “Now jump cut to the question of why we didn’t know about it initially? Our Jennifer Griffin reports that it was a classified mission. That’s one of the reasons they gave for not revealing it. But I think it’s pretty clear, like the response to the storm, that
Comments: And we will be hearing garbage like this for four more years.
Okay, Geraldo...here's another one for you: We Republicans know the real reason Boeing held off announcing huge lay-offs until THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION and Lockheed's will be forthcoming shortly, but just for giggles, why not give us your spin?
Geraldo has become a joke and a caricature. He is so in the bag and has a "man crush" on Barry. This behavior is representative of the MSM and how they refuse to investigate anything with this guy and make excuses for him. Pathetic! If Bush had decided to take an Asian "working" vacation at the time the fiscal cliff was looming - they would want him impeached.
I'm with several of the aboce posters. I am so sick of Who-uan Williams and all of the other demrats that Hannity bring on that I have completely stopped watching. Fox, in it's insane claim to be balanced is moving to advertised progressism. I think Hannity did more to get Obambi reelected than the mainstream media. He and O'Reilly apologized too many times for criminal behavior. Hannity and his "Stop Obama Express" did nothing to get the facts out.
We need someone to buy a network and have pure unapologetic conservative news. I would buy stock in it. We don't need scare tactics or exagerated hype. We just need facts.
Who in the press is talking about the UN Charter to suppress our second amendment rights? Who in the press is talking about the impact of the growing national debt? Who in the press is talking about the "gifts" to Obama's friends in the name of stimulus? Who in the press is talking about the corruption in the administration an the house and senate republicans refusal to do anything about it?
Yep, me too. The DVR fast forwards through Juan, Bechel, Jerry Rivers and Combs. Don't care for O'Reilly or Hannity much either. Never thought I would say that Greta is one of the better programs on Fox these days.
FOX NEWS increasingly about anchors in tight dresses, stiletto heels that I doubt they can walk in, and sucking up, slobbering over former or current elected officials. It's about sound bites, baiting people to say something controversial so it will go viral to spike ratings, employing the idiot RNC and DNC consultant class, etc. Blah,, blah, blah. No in depth reporting except for Kathryn Herridge, Jennifer Griffin. No coverage of racism toward whites, Conyers' wife, Jesse Jackson, Jr. criminal probe, etc. Time to quit being a dumb sheeple and turn propaganda off.
Have not been watching FOX either...they have about proven no different than the rest. Will not watch anything with Beckel, Geraldo, Colms, and am getting really tired of Bill OReilly. But here again, most people just talk about doing something and nothing ever happens...so why don't we just stop with the MSM bit...nobody is listening so why bother
I'm grateful to all the preceding posters re: Fox, Geraldo, the hideous Juan, Beckel, and the steadily growing number of blondes in 6" heels with skirts to their crotches who averaged don't make one dimwit. You've hit all the nails on the head. I too have turned off Fox except for Bret Baier and he only lasts until the panel begins. Then, depending on who is sitting there I go to mute until Dr. Krauthammer. Otherwise, no sound, nothing. In addition to the truly stupid marxist Juan, add Kristen, Mara, the blonde who uses her initials for a first name, and all the others now presented as being worthy of being heard. I don't think Ailes has it altogether anymore. If what I've learned is even half true, they have to be hurting. And if their only remaining claim to fame is that they are hated the least...well, I'd suggest that this says it all.
I am coming to the same conclusion about Fox, the posters on this site have expressed my sentiments.
The nation is divided, we have just witnessed a cataclysmic election which portrayed American tax payers as the enemy, and the latent progressives are crawling out of the Fox closet. Sorry, Fox, but I am weary of your intrusions every night.
Geraldo and Beckel will NOT be seen in this house.
I watch Bret Baier on Fox News and then Lou Dobbs on Fox Business. I was a fan of The Five at first but Bob Beckel, the reformed alcoholic, is simply insufferable. He has a nasty and mean personality and I can't stand to listen to a single word from him. If The Five got rid of Beckel I would return but I doubt they will. As for the female Fox panelists on Baier's show they are all liberals of varying intensity. The goon from the Wash Post, Charles Lane, is another sniveling leftist. Thank heaven for Krauthammer, Hayes, Kristol, Barnes, and Hume to provide some sanity.
Hey some of those hot blonde info babes on Fox are not so bad. In looks and content, infinitely better than Rachel Madcow and the execrable Nancy Grace. O Reilly should be replaced with Greg Gutfeld, and Hannity with Dennis Miller. Tokyo Rove should be canned immediately, along with Jerry Rivers. Do so love Bob Beckel's new red hair dye job.
Greta is the best especially when she plays clips of the MahaRushi.
November 7th did not want to listen to anyone (Rush, Sean, Mark, etc) or read anything on the internet. Invested 4 years in trying to educate myself, others, listening to the pundits and their "take" on things. In the end, they were ALL wrong!
I won't blame them for the results, but apparently their pulse on America's electorate was about as accurate as mine and it was worthless. After reading blogs for 4 years and listening to talk radio it seemed like the tides were turning. So many posters on sites stating they had voted for Zero 1st time but not now. I believed the reality of his agenda was making its way into people's lives and they would certainly see the taint I saw? Apparently not.
However, if America has now been converted to a Takers vs. Makers country it is what it is. I still can't swallow that. I am curious though as to why there aren't any allegations of cheating? We had story after story on election day of the Black Panthers back at the polls. Republican poll monitors physically removed from sites. Military ballots not reaching our soldiers, etc.
The libs certainly seem to have perfected the nasty campaign, why then is it impossible to believe that they have successfully achieved an air-tight method of cheating in overwhelming, election winning numbers?
At least give Beckel credit for occasionally being funny! Geraldo, Colmes, and Juan Williams not so much! In fact not at all, nor are they competent debaters, always talking over people and switching topics whenever they have to give a tough answer. The Talking heads who think that conflict bring ratings are dead wrong as I like many other posters turn the channel as soon as they show up and spend the rest of the hour on the cooking channel.
I also am Foxed out. No more. I'm joining you on the food networks.( When Big Bang Theory isn't on.) I've been a Fox addict since they came on the air, but no more. I had learned to live without the news after the alphabets knifed Bush 1 and getting Fox was such a relief. But no more.
If somebody already mentioned this forgive me, but I was stunned to hear the supposedly smart, savvy, well-informed Whorealdo express surprise that the sow JArret was born in Tehran. DUH! Where have you been, you idiot?
If Fox has to let him go due to budget cuts, then it won't bother me.
I don't mind dissenting opinions. But people who make opinions that are downright stupid, like Obama "had his plate full" are not worthy of being compensated financially. Obama has thousands of people who are employed to respond to and disseminate information about international incidents. There is only one reason why we did not hear about this, and we all know what it is. Obama would have looked like a weakling, even to his own people, right before an election. Funny how no "anonymous sources" dribbled out this information before Election Day.
I haven't watched any news for four years because at some point I will have to see Obamas mug or hear his voice .I canceled cable two years ago but for some reason I still get it. All my news comes from internet postings. Unfortunetly I still have to look at Obamas mug from time to time.
For the last few weeks, the media has been having a quiet debate about whether or not to take a stand against using official White House photos in protest against being shut out of many White House events. On Monday, MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd took things a step further, calling the limited press access “a version of propaganda.” Todd qualified that statement to make it clear he’s not saying this is out-and-out, overt propaganda, but argued it does come across to people as such when outside photographers aren’t allowed access. AP photojournalist Charlie Dharapak agreed, adding that it’s a “visual press
Many of the city’s major clothing stores tried to defuse the “shop and frisk” scandal on Monday by agreeing to an anti-profiling policy demanded by civil-rights activists led by the Rev. Al Sharpton. Barneys, Macy’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor and the Gap are among the retailers that promised to post and abide by a “Customers’ Bill of Rights” in the wake of allegations that some black shoppers were targeted for questioning by cops after purchasing pricey items. The move followed a sluggish start to the Christmas shopping season, which is unusually short this year due to late date
George Will wryly notes that our young president is benefiting from his lengthy spell of on-the-job training. Too bad the nation has to suffer through it. “The education of this president is a protracted and often amusing process . . . as he continues to alight upon the obvious with a sense of profound and original discovery,” Will said. “The president is saying, ‘the trouble with big government is it’s so darn big.’ And like a lot of other big organisms — dinosaurs spring to mind — it has a simple nervous system, it’s sclerotic, it’s governed by inertia, and
If you don´t already know by now, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms can´t even run a store without royally screwing up. Nearly one year ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on an ATF sting gone bad when the bureau tried to catch bad guys by setting up a store. The sting ended in a damaged rent space, $35,000 in stolen goods and with a fully automatic machine gun lost on the city streets. Now it appears ATF failed during another store front sting and is punishing teenagers they convinced to help them by throwing them in jail. We´re talking
There are going to be some epic data theft and hacking stories to come from the sad history of ObamaCare. They’re probably already happening. There has been a repeated history of both state and federal authorities concealing security breaches until forced to discuss them by freedom-of-information requests. These authorities are keenly aware of what a few big hacking stories will do to a system that’s already far less popular than it needs to be, with a reputation for technological ineptitude among the young people it desperately needs to milk for cash. But the hackers will have to get in line
WASHINGTON – Democrats are breathing a sigh of relief over what effectively passes as a re-launching of the Obamacare website, with some lawmakers now expressing optimism that the healthcare reform law will fall to their political benefit. Democratic office-holders like Sen. Mary Landrieu, of Louisiana, expected to face a tough 2014 re-election campaign, are once again embracing the Affordable Care Act. But Republicans argue the Affordable Care Act remains problematic and unsalvageable for a long list of reasons that extend well beyond a website, citing concerns about issues ranging from security to individuals losing their insurance coverage. “The American people
Russian President and 2005 Super Bowl champion Vladimir Putin unexpectedly dissolved RIA Novosti, a state news agency, along with its radio affiliate on Monday, a move the agency itself said would “appear to point toward a tightening of state control in the already heavily regulated media sector.” The agencies will be combined into Rossiya Segodnya and headed by Dmitry Kiselyov, a Russian news anchor who recently provoked controversy over his on-air homophobic remarks, an appointment sure to heighten tensions over Russia’s anti-gay policies ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics. The New York Times reported that the decree caught even the
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
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
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
