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.
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan thinks he knows why President Donald Trump has had the NFL in his crosshairs. Jealousy. "This is a very personal issue with him," Khan told USA Today after Wednesday´s owners meetings concluded in New York regarding Trump´s insistence that the league´s players should all stand during the national anthem. Trump attempted to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014, but his bid failed. Khan believes that might be fueling the President´s unrelenting criticism of the widespread player protests during the anthem this season. "He´s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life
A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´. Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an
WASHINGTON — A young Barack Obama questioned his place in the world and his racial identity, agonized over whether he´d make enough money as a community organizer, and lamented his incompatibility with his ex-girlfriend in 30 pages of letters he wrote to her that are now being archived by Emory University in Atlanta. (Snip) "My ideas aren´t as crystallized as they were while in school, but they have an immediacy and weight that may be more useful if and when I´m less observer and more participant," Obama wrote in 1984 to McNear, who was a student at a California college
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Sunday signed new legislation that will allow state residents to choose a gender option other than male or female on official documents. The legislation, a top priority of civil rights groups, also makes it easier for transgender people to change their gender identification on birth certificates or driver’s licenses. (Snip) The measure requires California’s registrar to issue new birth certificates to those born in the state who want to identify as a different gender, or as a third nonbinary option known as “intersex.” It deletes a requirement in state law that an applicant undergo treatment and
The legendary Bigfoot and other creatures like it have reportedly been spotted near a Northern California lake, according to a paranormal investigator. Jeffrey Gonzalez, a self-described paranormal expert, said he heard about the sighting from a local farmer who said he saw the creature and five others running on his ranch near Avocado Lake. “One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder," Gonzalez said in comments obtained by Fox 26, a Fox News affiliate. "And the five scattered and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and
The health of a nation’s economy and the health of its people are connected, but in some surprising ways. At times like these, when the economy is strong and unemployment is low, research has found that death rates rise. At least, in the short term. In the long term, economic growth is good for health. What’s going on? One study of European countries just before and during the Great Recession found that a one-percentage-point increase in the unemployment rate is associated with an 0.5 percent decline in the overall mortality rate. Other studies of Europe during different periods, as well
Netflix’s House of Cards helped Russian troll factory workers craft messages messages slamming Hillary Clinton that they posted in comments section of Washington Post and New York Times reports during the 2016 presidential race. This according to a Yahoo report from Michael Isikoff, as explained to CNN’s New Day this morning. Watching House of Cards was supposed to help the trolls write messages to sway the election, Isikoff said he learned while interviewing a worker from the troll factory Internet Research Agency. The worker, who went by the name “Maksim,” said they were “forced” to watch House of Cards, in English
Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what
George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´
Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,
Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day
Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.
