    Fox Business host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery criticized Democratic House Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota for blaming the rise in crime in Minneapolis on the police. “I don’t understand why she’s not addressing people who commit murder,” Kennedy told the hosts of Fox News’ show Outnumbered on Tuesday. “And the lack of respect for human life and basic decency. Because, really it’s on the person who is committing the crime. And certainly, you can look back and say there might have been some failures along the way, but to take all responsibility away from them, it’s completely illogical.” WATCH: Omar had criticized the police during a town hall event in Minneapolis Saturday, according to Fox News. “What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things,” she had said. Omar later elaborated that one of the two things she spoke of was that “the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed...
    Fox News hosts Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery and Julie Banderas on Wednesday took turns berating a liberal panelist for having the temerity to claim that dispute their claim that New York City is a “hellhole.” Kennedy and Banderas, in an effort to bolster their case that the city is a terrifying, crime-ridden wasteland, boasted that they “talk to cops” and read the New York Post as evidence for their claims. Besides whipping their viewers into a frenzy over vaccine mandates and critical race theory, Fox News has spent much of its time fear-mongering about supposed crime waves in Democratic-run big cities. (The reality is a bit more complicated, as murders are on the rise but robberies, property crimes, and rapes have all significantly declined this year.) On Wednesday’s broadcast of Fox News’ midday roundtable show Outnumbered, the panel was wrapping up yet another segment squarely blaming crime on Democrats and police reform efforts when the hosts took direct aim at New York. “It’s impossible to ignore the fact that crime rates are up,” Banderas declared. “And where are they up? They’re...
    Fox News’ Outnumbered got combative on Wednesday as the panel sparred about whether New York City has become a crime-infested “hellhole.” The dust-up happened during a discussion about crime rates and the argument that the police cannot enforce the law because they are supposedly being defunded in Democrat-led cities. After host Kennedy spoke about assault and other types of violent crimes happening in New York, Julie Banderas turned to liberal panelist Jenna Arnold and asked “do you not see a pattern here? Every Democratic city has more crime and less power in the hands of police officers who are suppose to keep this from happening?” Arnold responded by minimizing the relevance of the “Defund The Police” movement, and she also called for a greater focus on the underlying societal conditions that compel people towards criminal behavior. She also rejected the panel’s characterization of New York as a dangerous place, saying the city is “just fine.” Kennedy sarcastically rebuffed that assessment — responding that “the homicide rate has shot up…People are pooping in the streets.” Banderas concurred, and then Arnold countered...
    A Fox News panel on Friday’s broadcast of “The Five” mocked a new Twitter feature designed to warn users when they are about to enter “heated conversations.” The feature, which was still undergoing testing by Twitter, was supposed to promote “healthy conversations.” “The Five“ panelist and Fox Business host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery thought that Twitter made the wrong move. “It’s like when Playboy stopped showing boobies. It’s a really bad marketing strategy,” Kennedy told her fellow hosts before embarking on a discussion on whether or not Playboy showed nudity. (RELATED: Madonna Lifts Up Skirt, Flashes Audience On ‘Tonight Show’) “They stopped,” Kennedy said. “They were like, we really just want to be about the articles for real. I know men have been saying that for a long time. And like, when Tumblr was like, no, we’re done with porn. No one uses Tumblr anymore. It’s like, that’s what people go to Twitter for. They go because it’s abusive, it’s filthy.” Cohost Greg Gutfeld also criticized the new feature. “Twitter should be focusing on Twitter trends, right?” Gutfeld said....
    Fox News’ The Five mocked Twitter’s new trigger warning feature on Friday, with Kennedy comparing it to “when Playboy stopped showing boobies.” The new features being rolled out by Twitter are designed to keep conversations civil, Mic reported. Warnings include messages under tweets receiving lots of engagement that say “conversations like this can be intense.” The company will also reportedly send pop-up messages that read “let’s look for each other,” “remember the human,” “facts matter,” and “diverse perspectives have value.” However, the hosts of The Five were not having any of it and argued that Twitter’s pleas for civility will ruin the site. “There’s no healthy conversations on Twitter,” remarked Jesse Watters. “It’s a cesspool and everybody knows it’s a cesspool, and that’s why they love it.” Greg Gutfeld described Twitter as the “bathroom wall” that everyone scribbles on and called the new features “stupid.” “Twitter should be focusing on Twitter trends because Twitter trends collates the irrational mob attacks into a table of contents,” he said, later adding, “Twitter trends is one of the most destructive things on social media because it directs people to somebody who...
    Republican South Carolina Sen. John Kennedy said Friday that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) wants the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to ground Fox News’ unmanned aerial vehicles in order to hide the “lunacy” of the Biden administration’s “open border” policy. WATCH: “I believe that the reason that they’re limiting drone usage is because they don’t want the American public to know, and I think this is illegal,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.” “I’m sure that some are people who want to come to America for a better life. That’s fine. I’m proud of that, but that’s why we have a legal immigration system,” Kennedy continued, claiming that many of the migrants trying to enter the U.S. are criminals, child predators, drug dealers and terrorists. “The idea of saying that anybody who wants to come in can come in is lunacy and the American people don’t support it, which is why I think the Biden administration is preventing the usage of the drones.” (RELATED: ‘The Mona Lisa Of Incompetence’: Sen.

    One of Robert F. Kennedy‘s sons said on Sunday that he supports his father’s killer being paroled because “all human beings are worthy of compassion and love.” Sirhan Sirhan was recommended for parole on Friday 53 years after the assassination; the final decision rests with the governor. “I’m overwhelmed just by being able to view Mr. Sirhan face to face,” RFK’s son, Douglas Kennedy, told the two-person parole board. “I’ve lived my life both in fear of him and his name in one way or another. And I am grateful today to see him as a human being worthy of compassion and love.” Kennedy, a Fox News correspondent himself, reiterated that position in an interview with Fox News correspondent Christina Coleman. “I had lived my life in avoiding his name in the newspaper, avoiding his image, and to sit across from him on a video screen — where he can see my face and I can see his face — allowed me to see him as a human being, and all human beings are worthy of compassion and love, and...
    Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy said Monday that President Joe Biden’s reported decision to pay a contractor not to build the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.” WATCH: “I read the article about President Biden, Biden’s decision to pay the contractors $2 billion not to build the wall, not to finish the wall, and here’s my conclusion about that,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.” “What do you call a genius in President Biden’s Homeland Security Department? A visitor,” Kennedy quipped. (RELATED: ‘Like Making El Chapo The Drug Czar’: Sen. John Kennedy Questions Choice Of Kamala Harris As Illegal Immigration Head) “What he’s doing is a crime against nature and intelligence, for two reasons,” Kennedy continued, arguing the decision is “an obscene waste of taxpayer money” and that building a border wall should not be contentious, given that countries as varied as Saudi Arabia, Israel, France and Morocco have all built them. “Border walls work and we’ve had a border wall for 30 years in America,” Kennedy said. “Every president since then has supported it including President...
    Fox News’ Marie Harf plans to keep wearing her face mask on airplanes — forever. “I’m going to wear a mask on a plane for the rest of my life, even if I don’t have to,” Harf told incredulous colleagues Kat Timpf, Guy Benson and host Kennedy on Kennedy’s Fox Business show Tuesday. “Planes are gross, I think, just to begin with. You’re in close quarters. ” The Transportation Security Administration still requires masks for air travelers, a policy that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said this month was justified as a “matter of respect.” However, pressure has been growing for the agency to lift that policy. Thirty senators sent a letter on Tuesday asking the TSA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to update guidelines related to travelers who had been vaccinated against Covid-19. “I’m just going to!” Harf said about her intention to continue wearing a mask. “I’m going to own it. …  You don’t know who is vaccinated and who isn’t.” Watch above via Fox News.

    Bravo Lisa Vanderpump Could season 9 of “Vanderpump Rules” include a proposal? James Kennedy sure made it seem like it. Kennedy attended a royal dinner party during a recent episode of “Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by James Kennedy (@itsjameskennedy) The former SUR DJ revealed that he is ready to marry longtime girlfriend Raquel Leviss. Vanderpump – who has been a fan of the relationship since the beginning – gave her blessing for the future engagement. “You won’t find anyone else that’s more on your side than that girl,” Vanderpump told Kennedy of Leviss. Kennedy then revealed that he sees a serious future with her. He told Vanderpump, “Well, can you keep a secret? … I love Raquel so much, you know that. She really has helped me, and you’ve seen everything she’s stuck by me with. I really couldn’t imagine myself with anyone else on this planet. There’s no ‘buts’ — I think I’m going to ask her to marry me.” Vanderpump once again shared her...
    Over the weekend the San Francisco Chronicle published on op-ed centering on Disneyland’s revamped Snow White-themed ride. The authors, Katie Dowd and Julie Tremaine, spend most of the time lauding the relaunch, calling it “really good” while extolling its “gorgeous special effects.” At point, however, they note that the “includes a more comprehensive storyline – but that’s also the problem.” They explained: The new grand finale of Snow White’s Enchanted Wish is the moment when the Prince finds Snow White asleep under the Evil Queen’s spell and gives her “true love’s kiss” to release her from the enchantment. A kiss he gives to her without her consent, while she’s asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it’s happening. As Snow White is a fairy tale, it is of course not to be taken literally. The authors note as much when they wrote that this last scene “is beautifully executed – as long as you’re watching it as a fairy tale, not a life lesson.” On Monday this one column, which takes two or three minutes...
    Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion raised eyebrows with their hit song “WAP” at the 2021 Grammys Sunday night, and Fox News’ Outnumbered Monday panel was quick to condemn the performance as too raunchy for prime time network television. It was a “historic night for women,” said show host Harris Faulkner, noting Beyoncé’s record-setting 28 wins and Taylor Swift being the first female artist to win album of the year three times. “But all of that may have been a bit overshadowed by some of the night’s more risqué moments.” “I thought I had entered into a strip club,” replied Larry Elder. “It was absolutely — what happened to being able to sing, play an instrument and dance? What happened to those skills?” Faulkner agreed with Elder that it shouldn’t be viewed as “overly prudish” to want better standards on prime time TV, noting that the show was only rated “G” — indicating it was safe, family-friendly entertainment. It would have been better if the network had given parents a “heads up,” said Faulkner, and labeled it at least PG-13. “I don’t think that’s too...
    Reuters March 10, 2021 0 Comments Roger Mudd, the longtime CBS News political correspondent who famously helped sink Edward Kennedy’s White House ambitions by asking in an interview why the senator wanted to be president, leaving the candidate flustered, died on Tuesday at age 93. Mudd, who covered politics and national affairs at CBS for two decades before working at NBC News, PBS and the History Channel, died at his home in McLean, Virginia, of complications from kidney failure, according to a CBS News statement. Mudd reported on some of the biggest stories in Washington, his hometown, during the 1960s and ’70s, including passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the aftermath of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1968 assassination, the Watergate scandal and the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974. But he became best known for his 1979 interview with Kennedy in an hour-long profile of the prominent liberal senator from Massachusetts as Kennedy prepared to announce his bid to challenge Democratic President Jimmy Carter for their party’s 1980 presidential nomination. Kennedy, then heir to one of the...
    Roger Mudd, the CBS newsman whose political reporting and substitute anchoring on "The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite" made him a familiar and respected face to tens of millions of Americans in the 1960s and 1970s, died Tuesday of complications from kidney failure at his home in McLean, Virginia. He was 93.  "Roger was a hero in the CBS News Washington bureau," said Susan Zirinsky, president and senior executive producer of CBS News. "He was a journalist of enormous integrity and character. He would not budge if he believed he was right and would not compromise his ethical standards. He was an inspiration to all of us in the bureau. On a personal note — I sat directly across from him in the D.C. newsroom — Roger was big, not just in his physical presence but he was larger than life." Mudd joined CBS News as a congressional correspondent in 1961 and was named national affairs correspondent in 1977.

    Roger Mudd, the longtime CBS News political correspondent famed for the 1979 interview that crushed Sen. Edward Kennedy’s presidential ambitions, died on Tuesday. He was 93. The veteran journalist died at home in McLean, Va., of complications from kidney failure, his son, Jonathan Mudd, told The Washington Post. Mudd, who covered politics and national affairs for CBS for two decades, was best known for his sit-down with Kennedy, of Massachusetts, who had been set to challenge President Jimmy Carter for the 1980 Democratic nomination. But Kennedy buckled under Mudd’s tough questioning and was stopped cold when the reporter asked him why he wanted to be president, before mumbling through a response. “Why do you want to be president? That was it. That’s all I said,” Mudd recalled to the Boston Globe in 2009. “It was a parody of a politician’s answer.” Born in Washington, D.C. in 1928, Mudd began his career in the 1950s as a radio reporter in Virginia. He joined CBS News’ Washington bureau in 1961, working mostly as a Congressional correspondent and filling in for Walter...

    February 18, 2013 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. #insert related here # On President’s Day, entrepreneurs might do well to reflect on what they can learn from our nation’s greatest communicators. “The chief business of the modern presidency is persuasion – convincing people to do things they ought to do but don’t necessarily want to do – which is not so different than an entrepreneur selling a product,” says presidential historian Richard Norton Smith, former head of six presidential libraries and author of Thomas E. Dewey and His Times (Simon & Schuster, 1982), a finalist for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize. Here are six lessons you can learn from some of the most celebrated American presidents, each illustrating a different facet of persuasive communications: 1. Aim big, but be specific.John F. Kennedy successfully transformed his goal of putting a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s from a “pie in the sky” idea to an attainable reality, according to Douglas Brinkley, author and professor...
    Instagram disabled Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s account for repeatedly posting misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. Kennedy Jr., the son of former presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, has amassed a huge following on social media, frequently posting false or unfounded claims about coronavirus vaccines. He also publishes on large pharmaceutical firms and environmental damage. “We have removed this account for repeatedly sharing false claims about coronavirus or vaccines,” a spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, said Thursday. The Children’s Health Advocacy, a Kennedy-funded organization that focuses on vaccines, did not immediately respond to messages. Kennedy Jr. has published misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines in recent times. In a comment in late January, he described vaccines as a potential danger, despite studies of tens of thousands of people that found no serious side effects. The account’s suspension comes just days after Facebook announced that it would step up its efforts to block misrepresentation about the vaccines, including claims that the injections are ineffective, toxic, dangerous or autism-causing.

Donald trump gives the witness in a inauguration for which Washington has been shielded, especially after the assault on the capitol carried out by supporters of Donald Trump on January 6.

Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, George W. Bush, Barack Obama or Donald Trump. It should be remembered that four US presidents have been assassinated during his tenure: Abraham Lincoln (1865), James A. Garfield (1881), William McKinley (1901) and John F. Kennedy (1963). And four others died...
    Fox News host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery personally insulted CNN media analyst Brian Stelter during a Tuesday afternoon segment complaining about mainstream media being mean to conservatives, calling the Reliable Sources host “ham-headed” and comparing him to a potato. Fox News’ midday panel show Outnumbered devoted a segment to conservative grievances over a Washington Post cartoon depicting Republicans who collaborated with President Donald Trump’s attempt to overthrow the election as “rats.” Furthermore, the segment also took issue with Stelter comparing Americans who have been radicalized by the “right-wing media machine” to ISIS recruits and mass shooters. “The same pipeline that helps my children learn, helps you connect with your loved ones, also poisons some adults and distorts their reality. The body of research about radicalization is very clear,” Stelter noted during the Sunday segment. “The internet creates more space for extremism and the echo chamber effect accelerates the process. QAnon is one really clear recent example. But so is ‘Stop the Steal’ and so are some corners of the anti-vaccination movement.” Lawrence Jones, serving as the program’s lone male guest host,...
    A NEWS anchor will undergo surgery to remove a “cancerous” tumour from her throat after eagle-eyed viewers spotted a strange growth. Kristen Kennedy, who anchors WKYT’s News at Noon, used a segment in Wednesday’s bulletin to thank viewers who had contacted her and to let them know she was having surgery next week to remove the growth. 4Before and after: Kristen Kennedy showed WKYT viewers the lump on her neck 4Kristen thanked viewers for emailing her about the growth on her neck She admitted that when she got the first email about the lump she didn’t pay it any attention. Kennedy said: “I got another email. And, I think about by the third one, it came from a retired physician, and that was when I started listening.” She told viewers: “I have surgery scheduled soon for the removal of this. “It is a mass on my thyroid that I would have never had noticed if it were not for you, our viewers. “I started getting emails about two months ago. Viewers had genuine concerns. So, did my doctors. What is...
    Fox News co-host Kennedy provided a clear-eyed and dispassionate explanation to an apparently confused Melissa Francis on why continued questioning of President Donald Trump’s curious pattern of not condemning white supremacists is within bounds. The issue has been a hot topic of conversation since the Tuesday night presidential debate President Trump was asked to unequivocally condemn white supremacy, in particular, hate group Proud Boys, and limply answered “sure” before saying “stand back and stand by.” During a Thursday press briefing, Fox News White House reporter John Roberts pushed Kayleigh McEnany to also condemn racial hate groups in a definitive and declarative manner, though the press secretary seemed to decline — opting instead to cite previous comments. Francis noted that, in her esteem, “no matter how Kayleigh answers the question there is a predictable response that comes.” She then explained what she saw as a no-win situation for the White House. If they answer as they did, it is “not enough,” but if they answer in a clear and declarative manner, critics will ask “why didn’t you just do it...

    Fox News’ Outnumbered panel did not sugarcoat their reactions to Steve Bannon’s fraud charge Thursday — with Kennedy even calling for President Donald Trump to release his taxes. Anchor Harris Faulkner pointed out that Bannon’s indictment was bad timing as it occurred while the president was meeting with Prime Minister of Iraq Mustafa Al-Kadhimi. “You’ve got yet another advisor, former advisor of the president of the United States, that is being looked at legally, arrested on a boat by U.S. Postal Service agents who were investigating this,” she added. “This is not a good look. You see the president distancing himself. You see a prime minister who has come very far away from Iraq sitting there for all of this, because it became news during that bilateral.” Once Harris and her co-host Melissa Francis turned to the panel, each member sounded off on Bannon’s arrest and all generally agreed that it’s a “pretty bad look.” Juan Williams pointed to the growing number of former Trump advisors who have either been arrested or convicted — noting that the political push back is going to be immediate. “Chris...

    Fox News hosts Melissa Francis and Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery suggested on Wednesday that former Vice President Joe Biden was fed questions and read his answers off a teleprompter during a recent news conference, echoing President Donald Trump’s bogus accusations. Following the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s Tuesday afternoon press conference, which concluded with a Fox News reporter asking Biden about his supposed cognitive decline, the president took to Twitter to claim Biden “knew the questions and still couldn’t answer them.” In a Wednesday morning tweet, Trump took his conspiracy theory even further, outright accusing the ex-veep of reading “the answers from a teleprompter,” adding that Biden “was given the questions” ahead of time “just like Crooked Hillary.” During Wednesday’s broadcast of talk show Outnumbered, host Melissa Francis immediately latched onto both of the president’s talking points while analyzing Biden’s performance. “If you were watching yesterday, he said that ‘he wants to stop appealing to the ahh—,’ then he sort of paused for a very long period of time and was trying to figure out he was going to finish that sentence....
