FNC Fires Scapegoat Chris Stirewalt — and Their VP for News ‘Retires’

You’ve got to hand it to Trump — he’s like Obi-Wan Kenobi. Strike him down, and he becomes more powerful than ever. We all remember the catastrophic moment on Election Night, when Chris Stirewalt called Arizona for Biden, and Bret Baier was like, “WTF, Fat Boy?” Bret Baier: “But Chris, we haven’t called Texas yet. […]

Millions Stopped Watching Fox News

The big news this week is that, for the first time, Newsmax got a bigger audience than Fox News. “Newsmax’s Greg Kelly Reports beat Martha MacCallum’s Fox News program in the 7 p.m. hour, bumping MacCallum down to No. 4 in cable news, behind Erin Burnett on CNN and Joy Reid on MSNBC.” The reason […]

Tucker Carlson’s Tightrope Walk

Scott Johnson at Powerline ponders the plight of Tucker Carlson, who finds himself stuck at a network that has declared war on its audience. What has surprised me most about Carlson’s tenure at Fox is what we might call his Buchananite streak. He’s far more paleoconservative than I had any reason to imagine prior to […]

Fox News Still Will Not Admit Bungling Election Night Call on House Races

In addition to botching the presidential call in Arizona, Fox News was even more disastrously wrong in their congressional projections on Election Night, claiming that Democrats would “expand” Nancy Pelosi’s House majority by as many as 15 seats. Deb Heine at American Greatness: The Fox News Decision Desk made its wildly inaccurate projection early on […]

Millions of Republicans have stopped watching Fox News after the Election Night debacle in which the network’s “Decision Desk” (i.e., a Democrat named Aaron Mishkin) called Arizona for Joe Biden at a time when they were still claiming that Ohio and Texas were “too close to call.” When the “Decision Desk” called Arizona for Biden, […]

Biden Spokesman Melts Down After Being Asked Simple Yes-or-No Question

  This whole interview with Brett Baier of Fox News is a disaster for T.J. Ducklo, who is exactly the type of testosterone-deficient soyboy you’d expect to be National Press Secretary for Joe Biden. When Baier raised the issue of Biden’s declining mental acuity — which is highly relevant to his fitness for office — […]

Guess Who Was on TV Last Night?

  OK, I think you might recognize this guy. The reason why I didn’t promote my appearance Thursday night on The Ingraham Angle in advance was because the way cable news “hits” are scheduled, you never know if you’re actually going to be on until it happens. Like, this had been planned for a day […]

Shep Smith Out at Fox News

  Was he fired or did he quit? Shepard Smith is stepping down from Fox News, the network announced on Friday. Today’s Friday afternoon showing of Shepard Smith Reporting was his last. A native of Holly Springs, Mississippi, Smith, 55, joined Fox News at its inception in 1996 after beginning his television career a decade […]
