Fox News as contributor

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/6/2014 6:33:56 PM

Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville has been hired as a Fox News contributor. ADVERTISEMENT The former Bill Clinton adviser will join the network to provide political commentary. Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming, announced the move on Thursday. "James´ successful and storied career in politics over several decades is an enormous asset to Fox News," Shine said. "We are privileged to have him lend his breadth of experience, wit and dynamic perspective on the network." Carville helped lead Bill Clinton´s successful 1992 presidential campaign; he continued to serve as a senior political adviser in the Clinton White House. Carville went on to work as

Comments:
Heavy sigh. I guess it could be worse. It could have been Axelrod. s/o Carville is as annoying as Colmes.

Fox is going all out after the no-info viewers. I wonder if they realize that by signing on all these left-wing radicals like him, beckle, williams, powers, et. al. that they are going to loose a lot of their regular normal viewers.

I like listening to James Carville. I don´t agree with him but appreciate his insight into the other side. Had he not been a political consultant he could have been a stand-up comedian. And, IMO, it gets old listening to your side all the time.

#3 Bob Beckle, Juan Williams and Kristen Powers have been on FOX for many years and are not new left-wing radicals. Kristen Powers has had a very obvious shift to the center if not the right. Beckle will be Beckle and it doesn´t stop me from watching the Five. Juan Williams - he is good for the daily talking points out of the WH, I agree. But, watching FOX like I do - I do see a good side in him from time to time.

As soon as I see CArville´s face on FOX, regardless of the program (and that includes O´Reilly), I change the channel. The ONLY thinking democrat on Fox, in my opinion, is Kirsten Powers. When other democrats on Fox are posed a question whose common-sense, real-world answer is blatantly obvious to the rational mind, these democrats fall, lemming-like, right into their talking points, regardless of how foolish that makes them-they will tow the party line no matter what. Powers often has an answer that is carefully thought out and has some reasonableness, sometimes even going against the majority democrat opinion. Admirable.

Fox with have to change their brand from "Fair and Balanced" to "Truth and Lies." Seriously, I won´t watch anymore. The folks from the left like Carville, Juan, Colmes, et al, don´t present a point of view. They present lies. You can ask them questions to which there is an obvious, objective answer and they will twist and contort to take the opposite side no matter what it is.

He gives me the creeps, too. And I have actually seen him in person. His opinions give me the creeps, too - most of the time.

Yet, he is married to Mary Matalin. I would love to be a fly on the wall during their conversations on political and social matters.

I hope - I expect - that he will be much more informative than Juan, Alan or Bob. Keep your enemies close. And pay attention to what they have to say. If not, how do you prepare an effective offense?

As a party propagandist or a real smart political analyzer? If Carville can manage fair and balanced it might be worth a one time look. His chance for legacy.

If just another leftist propagandist, people are starting to catch on. obama wasn´t that hard to spot as a rhetorician if you are ruled by intellect. Carville as one who can out yell and overtalk is not a people getter IMO.

Carville as a people watcher and fair analyst could be as insightful as Dick Morris.

No, a steady diet of like minded pundits and opinionaters is boring. There has to be a mix to make us watch. Sure, we all love to dislike Bob Beckel, to gag at Juan Williams´ naivete´ and, you´ll see, to get the adrenaline pumping while listening to Carville rant. It´s called programming to keep the ratings up. Roger Ailes didn´t lead Fox to a ratings stratosphere by handing out pablum every evening.

I have virtually stopped watching the Fox Cable Network, or in fact, any TV news. The internet has all the news I need to see and I can pick and choose which bias I wish to read. I refuse to watch Mr Beckel, Colmes, Williams, Carville, Ms Powers, and all the other UnFair and Unbalanced personnel they now put on the air. Some of the things they say are not just inane, but border on insane. ( My opinion ). There are plenty of sports and movies to take up my time without getting upset by hearing bigoted, biased, racist rants by a slew of partisan know-nothings/

I sure hope you folks are not surprised by this. I have been posting how far left Foxnews has been going for months. The liberals would not let their people go on Fox and it hurt Fox so bad that they even told O’Reilly to start kissing up to Obama. The only one that gave fox a hard time about changing was Hannity and they moved him to such a late time that now no one hardly listens, but they still use him to hold on to the right. They know that there are so few Pro American places for the conservatives to go that they only have to do a little to hold the conservative audience.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
