    Newsmax made it official on Tuesday, announcing the hiring of former Fox News reporter James Rosen as the pro-Trump network's new chief White House correspondent, replacing Emerald Robinson, the reporter who pushed a bonkers conspiracy theory that the COVID-19 vaccine contains a satanic marker. The Daily Beast reported last month that Rosen was in negotiations with Newsmax as the channel looked to build out its news operation and pivot away from over-the-top, fringe-right content. “James Rosen is not only a reporter’s reporter, but also a great thinker and author who can share complex issues on a TV screen and explain them in clear and understandable ways,” Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said in a statement. The former Fox News star seemingly replaces Robinson, who was pulled off the air as White House correspondent after pushing the satanic COVID conspiracy last month. In a statement on Tuesday, Newsmax acknowledged that Robinson is soon gone: “Emerald is still with Newsmax, however her contract ends in January and we will not be renewing it. We appreciate the work she has done on-air for...
    Mark Meadows’ attorney has told Fox News that the former White House chief of staff to former President Donald Trump will no longer cooperate with the House committee investigating the events of Jan. 6. It was reported in recent days that Meadows had an agreement with the committee where he would willingly provide documents and sit for a deposition on the storming of the U.S. Capitol. Committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) complimented Meadows in late November on his then-level of compliance, even as he suggested that action would be taken if Meadows tries to resist committee subpoenas. On Tuesday, however, Meadows’ lawyer George Terwilliger told Fox News that his client couldn’t reach an agreement with the committee, so they no longer intend to work with them. Terwilliger contended that the dispute stems from the committee’s intent to examine Meadows’ cell phone records, and press him on matters he claims fall under executive privilege. “We have made efforts over many weeks to reach an accommodation with the committee,” Terwilliger told Fox. He also lambasted Thompson over recent comments where the...

    Hunter Biden was close friends with Tucker Carlson, wrote a recommendation for his son's Georgetown application, and even got Carlson to intervene in a Fox News story about him on Hunter's behalf. Emails from Hunter's abandoned laptop show the Fox anchor and the president's son were close – a fact that Carlson failed to declare throughout his extensive coverage of the scandals surrounding Hunter's business and personal transgressions revealed by his abandoned computer. In emails Hunter professed his 'love' for Carlson and his family, called him 'buddy' and told him 'you're a friend'. In August 2015 data on the 30 million users of extramarital affairs website Ashley Madison were leaked, including Hunter's name and credit card. Fox News wrote a story about Joe Biden's son's alleged use of the site, whose tag line is 'Life is short. Have an affair'. Emails obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter's abandoned laptop show Fox News host Tucker Carlson and the president's son were close at one point In one email from 2014, the news anchor thanked Hunter for writing a recommendation letter for his...
    MyPillow CEO and 2020 dead-ender-who-will-simply-never-quit Mike Lindell attempted to put pressure on Fox News to cover his non-existent election fraud case—which he’s long-promised to file with the Supreme Court—by holding a poorly attended rally outside the cable channel’s offices. On Wednesday morning, a smattering of protesters gathered in Lindell’s name in front of Fox News headquarters on 6th Avenue in Manhattan, where, the MAGA mogul told The Daily Beast, the names of the mystery plaintiffs bringing his mythical filing to the high court would, at last, be revealed. Alas, the names were not revealed. Instead, videos from the slapdash protest, which Lindell shared with The Daily Beast, showed a moderately engaged crew numbering little more than a dozen. They wagged signs branded with “Frank Speech”—the name of Lindell’s homespun social-media platform—and expressed their displeasure with the conservative cable news network for its insufficiently fealty to their pillow-hawking leader. “Shame on Fox! Shame on Fox!” went one chant, mirroring Lindell’s now-signature tagline. “Fox failed! We want the truth!” went another. A billboard truck parked on the street appeared to take aim...
    Tensions are high outside the Kenosha Courthouse where a jury deliberates the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse, currently on trial after killing two individuals in August 2020 during riots that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake. Reporting on the scene Fox News reporter Alexis McAdams could be heard saying over footage recently shot “This man his arm with an ar-15 walkout outside of the courthouse during the jury deliberation.” She then clarified that “He was outside yesterday clashing with protesters. Sheriff deputies stopped him asking to see his permit and his license to make sure everything matched up. He put his weapon back voluntarily according to deputies.” Local authorities are concerned about a return to the deadly riots that led Rittenhouse to show up with a long rifle which he used to shoot two individuals who came after him. The jury is currently trying to decide the guilt or innocence of the 18-year-old who some believe acted solely in self-defense, and others see him as guilty of irresponsible — and deadly — vigilante justice from taking part in an action he...
    Fox News host Jesse Watters implied that Biden may be considering removing Kamala Harris as Vice President after he said his network had heard 'whispers' of confirmation hearings in Congress.  'Our Capitol Hill Correspondent Chad Pergram tells us he's been hearing whispers suggesting there could be some new high-profile confirmation hearings on the horizon in the House of Representatives,' said Watters during the segment.  'Why is this a big deal? Because the house does not confirm normal nominees. But it does confirm vice-presidential nominees. Does this have something to do with Kamala Harris? It's been no secret she's been running out of favor with the Biden team,' he added.  The host touched on reports over the weekend that the Biden-Harris post-election bliss, had worn out as aides became frustrated with her awkward laugh, 'dysfunction and lack of focus,' and low approval rate of just 28 percent.  On Monday, Biden and Harris put up a united front when they stepped out of the White House together to sign the president's trillion-dollar infrastructure bill, after a CNN article on Sunday claimed that their relationship...
    More excerpts are leaking of Jonathan Karl's new book about the White House of former President Donald Trump. According to one part quoted by CNN, former Attorney General Bill Barr ended up being screamed at by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. So, he screamed back. The book describes the unhinged Bartiromo as "screaming" about false voter fraud, which Barr fact-checked in an exit interview with the Associated Press. "Bartiromo had once been a widely respected and trailblazing financial journalist," the book describes. "As a correspondent for CNBC, she was the first television reporter to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Now she had her own show on Fox News and she was using it to boost a series of unfounded allegations designed to overturn a presidential election." Bartiromo invited Sidney Powell, the onetime lawyer for Donald Trump, who rattled off a series of false claims without any "skepticism" from the Fox host. "It was all a lie," wrote Karl, "but Sidney Powell's deranged theories would have never taken hold if there weren't people...
    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan has lifted the lid on how he vaulted from the political margins to Trump world insider, all thanks to the power of television.  In his new memoir he describes how he realized that then President Trump was an avid viewer and how to take advantage of the fact. 'Every time we were on TV, we weren’t just talking to people in the television audience; we were talking to POTUS,' Jordan writes, according to excerpts from 'Do What You Said You Would Do: Fighting for Freedom in the Swamp' obtained by Cleveland.com.  'We didn’t necessarily need to schedule a phone call with the president or try to arrange a meeting. We could talk to him directly through Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.'  Jordan, a founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he had been operating on the periphery of politics. But things changed quickly when he paid his first visit to the White House after Trump's 2017 inauguration for a bill signing. Rep. Jim Jordan developed a close relationship with President Trump after he realized...
    Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer shocked anchor Harris Faulkner by telling her President Joe Biden is, in fact, in command of the White House. The two spoke Thursday on The Faulkner Focus, where Fleischer accused Biden of “polarization” and breaking his promise to govern as a moderate Democrat. This led to Faulkner’s question: “Who is running the White House, in your estimation? You have been inside, you know what it looks like, is it fair to continue to question that?” “Unequivocally, it’s Joe Biden.” Fleischer answered. “You think it is?” Faulkner responded with apparent surprise. “Absolutely,” Fleischer said. “He sets the tone.” From there, Faulkner digressed to a question about Biden’s reluctance to take questions from the media. Fleischer explained that “he doesn’t want to talk to the media. Because he’s running the show and he gets to make those kinds of decisions.” Ever since Biden campaigned for office in the 2020 election, Fox News personalities have repeatedly pushed the idea that Biden is senile and mentally incapable of being president. In recent months, Fox personalities have also run with...
    Sesame Street is promoting vaccines for young kids, just like the show did 50 years ago, but now a children’s educational series teaching children about shots is facing criticism. Fox News’ Harris Faulkner asked Congressman Chip Roy (R- TX) Monday and referred to this as a “government-funded” media outlet “using Big Bird to push vaccines for children.” She shared Senator Ted Cruz’s tweet accusing the children’s television character of “government propaganda” and even showed a tweet from Mike Cernovich. Roy accused Sesame Street of “propaganda” by encouraging them to get vaccines, and even said, “I’m calling on my colleagues to stand strong and not fund a government that’s going to go do propaganda on our kids and put these unconstitutional mandates in place.” Faulkner then added this: I am curious to know what part of the government actually got involved with a 6-foot-7 fake yellow bird telling children not to go to their pediatricians, their doctors, with their parents and work this out, but do exactly what the fake bird did. I mean, I think that’s a fair question. That’s...
    The entire raison d’être of the Republican Party is now to scare white people into voting for them so they can continue to wield power (on behalf of billionaires, of course) with the backing of a craven minority of the U.S. population. Indeed, the only problems conservatives seem interested in solving are ones that clearly do not exist. A killer virus is on the rampage and the planet is overheating like Donald Trump’s toilet seat on the McRib’s annual rerelease date? Meh. Oh, but wait! Here’s a new buzzword that sounds super scary! We’ve thoroughly focus-grouped this, so we know it will fill every hog-shit lagoon in Iowa with white people’s blazing hot fear-diarrhea. (By the way, I’m a white native Midwesterner, so I don’t want to hear it. Come at me, bro!) We’re less than a year out from a former Republican pr*sident’s attempt to overthrow a free and fair election, and since that date, Republicans have been furiously flushing that off-the-charts outrage down the memory hole while elevating utter nonsense. And based on Tuesday night’s results in Virginia, it worked...
    FOX Weather, a high-tech streaming service, launches Monday with trailblazing features that are expected to change the way Americans consume weather news and analysis.  "It’s live programing right there on your phone," meteorologist Nick Kosir told Fox News Digital.

    Fox News’ Neil Cavuto urged network viewers to get vaccinated in his first on-air comments since he was diagnosed with a breakthrough coronavirus case. Cavuto, who has multiple sclerosis and an open history of health issues, has been off the air since last week after testing positive for Covid. When the news first broke, the Fox anchor noted in a statement to Mediaite that “had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation.” On Sunday, Cavuto made a remote appearance on MediaBuzz and told Howard Kurtz that he and his wife (who also tested positive) are doing well. He soon turned his attention to the politicization surrounding the coronavirus as he urged people to “please get vaccinated.” The situation for me being immunocompromised, half the cases we’re hearing on the breakthrough front are among the immunocompromised, people like me who had and have multiple sclerosis or prior heart situations or cancer. There are many like that all around us, and mine is not secret at Fox. But there are plenty...
    Two PACs backing Josh Mandel in Ohio, Club for Growth Action and USA Freedom Fund, have coordinated on new attack ads in the state against Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance for past comments criticizing Donald Trump, reportedly dropping close to a million dollars into the buy. The Club for Growth ad plays quotes from Vance referring to himself as “Never Trump” and saying he “can’t stomach” the ex-president. “On Twitter, Vance called Trump, quote, reprehensible, an idiot, and Vance loves Mitt Romney,” says the voice-over narration as past Vance tweets are shown on screen with his insults at Trump highlighted dramatically. Vance has been running toward Trump for months, and previously deleted tweets like those in the video, scrubbing his anti-Trump past in his bid for a Senate seat in Ohio. Politico reports that both PACs spent about $470k on their ads, and both “feature a screenshot of a Vance tweet from October 2016, in which he wrote “My god what an idiot” about Trump. “The ads will play back those comments to viewers watching NFL and NCAA games in...
    A U.S. Marine veteran appeared on Fox News Friday to relay his account of how he stopped armed robbers from knocking off a convenience store, but wandered way off topic at the conclusion of the segment by declaring that Jeffrey Epstein didn’t commit suicide. James Kilcer was at a Chevron convenience store in Yuma, Arizona early Thursday morning when two robbers entered. One of them pointed a gun toward Kilcer and the store clerk and that’s about as far as they got before the vet disarmed him with his bare hands. A third suspect was on the scene but the commotion started before he entered the store. Kilcer was able to detain the person he disarmed, and the other two fled and remain at large. “Once it happened, I was mentally prepared and just made it happen,” Kilcer explained to Dana Perino. “Did what what had to be done.” “Great to meet you,” said Perino, wrapping up the segment. “And if anybody sees James out there, buy him either an energy drink… or a beer if you want one.” “I’ll...
    "Bad Republican" author Meghan McCain credited her bond with former Fox News colleagues Janice Dean, Kennedy, Dagen McDowell and Kat Timpf for helping her through tough times, saying she knows what "women supporting women looks like" because of her experience at the network.  "Look, I worked at Fox News before I went to ‘The View’ and I probably would not have survived emotionally, the past five years of my life between my dad’s passing, and cancer, and everything I speak about in my memoir happening at ‘The View’ and other things in my personal life if it weren’t for the women that I met at Fox News," McCain said Tuesday night on "Hannity."  It marked her first TV interview since leaving the ABC News daytime talk show earlier this year.  MEGHAN MCCAIN REVEALS BIGGEST REGRET -- AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH 'THE VIEW' Meghan McCain credited her bond with former colleagues Janice Dean, Kennedy, Dagen McDowell and Kat Timpf from Fox News for helping her through tough times.

    Fox News medical contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier said Monday she’s dismayed by people using the tragic death of Colin Powell to say the vaccines don’t work. Saphier noted how people “all over social media” are “trying to use this anecdotal report” to raise questions, but she laid out the facts of the case. Powell passed away at 84 years old from covid-19. He was fully vaccinated, but as Saphier noted, he was being treated for multiple myeloma, blood cancer, meaning he was immunocompromised. She emphasized that “we are still in the midst of a pandemic” and that it’s important for people to keep taking precautions “to protect the vulnerable.” “We never expected it to get us to zero cases, but it does decreases the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, and that’s why we recommend the flu shot, and the covid vaccine going to be the same.” Towards the end of the interview, Saphier more directly stated, “It’s very upsetting to see that people [are] taking Colin Powell’s death a using it as ‘the vaccine didn’t work.’ This is...
    Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) disagreed with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday after she accused Democrats of "bank surveillance" because of a new proposal from the Biden administration. The new tax law proposal would require banks to report the total dollar amount of annual transactions to and from bank accounts if it's greater than $600 in a year. The information would be used to flag the accounts of people who may have underpaid taxes. But outlets like Infowars have twisted the proposal to suggest that the IRS will be spying on each individual transaction. Bartiromo added to the misinformation during her interview with Khanna on Sunday. "Is this bank surveillance still in this spending bill?" she asked. "Maria, let me just put some facts out there," Khanna replied. "First of all, the bill does not in any way surveil individual transactions. There is no oversight of individual transactions. All it does is ask the banks to give the total amount that was deposited and the total amount that...

    ANGELA WEISS/AFP via Getty Images Fox News’ Janice Dean, New York Assembly Member Ron Kim, and more met with Governor Kathy Hochul Tuesday to call for “full accountability” on covid-19 nursing home deaths. Prior to the sexual harassment scandal that led to his resignation, former Governor Andrew Cuomo came under fire for covid-19 deaths in New York nursing homes. A report from Attorney General Letitia James’ office said nursing home deaths were seriously undercounted. Dean’s father-in-law and mother-in-law died in nursing homes in early 2020, and she became a vocal critic of Cuomo’s covid-19 policy. After Cuomo resigned, she said Hochul should be holding people accountable. We won’t stop until we have accountability. @GovKathyHochul just because the old boss is gone doesn’t mean our voices won’t stay loud and clear. https://t.co/2Url5fdET3 — Janice Dean (@JaniceDean) September 6, 2021 The list of people who did Cuomos bidding and who are STILL there is quite astonishing. It will haunt @GovKathyHochul if she doesnt clean house and make sure theres nothing still growing under the floorboards afterwards.https://t.co/FhFX0J98Xg — Janice Dean (@JaniceDean)...
    CNN anchor Brianna Keilar marked Fox News’ 25th anniversary with a blistering rant in which she literally accused the network of getting people killed. You may have noticed Fox’s 25th anniversary has been receiving some attention from outlets lately, including Mediaite. And on Friday morning’s edition of New Day, Keilar added her own voice to the commemorations — sideways with mustard on it. Keilar introduced her subject by telling viewers “Fox is celebrating 25 years on the air this week, celebrating as per usual with misinformation and not-so-hot takes,” then offered “just a sampling from the past week.” Keilar then played a minute or so of clips from the network that featured this Lara Logan rant against immigrants and vaccines, this bit of praise for the Unabomber, and this thing that Tucker Carlson “can’t verify” but just thinks “sounds right,” among other things. That’s when Keilar really told viewers how she feels. Fox’s chief propagandist with Fox’s de facto slogan, there, a dangerous one, by the way. But that’s why you may stumble across a puff piece on Fox, on,...
     If you tuned into Fox News at all on Thursday, October 7, 2021, you would instantly realize that the network has been celebrating its 25th anniversary. Even The Daily Show team wanted to mark the occasion, putting together a brutal montage of the network’s on-air sexual harassment moments throughout the years. “Happy 25th anniversary, Fox News! Here’s to 25 more (sexual harassment and defamation lawsuits)!” read the caption for the video on YouTube. The montage begins with a string of clips featuring current Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, in which he requests that his co-hosts “get naked” and tells another that he would “jam some stuff” into her. Geraldo Rivera later claims that what a woman brings to a marriage — “more than anything else” — is her “youth,” which he says is a “fragile and diminishing resource.” The montage goes on to show infamous clips of Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, who have since departed the network, one showing O’Reilly claiming that women are “blasted out of their minds when they have sex.” Tucker Carlson is also featured in the montage,...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity joined "Fox & Friends" to celebrate Fox News’ 25th anniversary and reflect on his years working for the company since it started. "I’m just very humbled. I’m grateful, I’m appreciative," Hannity said. "It’s changed my life, and it’s fun."  Before starting at Fox News, Hannity spent 10 years working in construction and another 10 years working in restaurants.  FOX NEWS CELEBRATES 25 YEARS SINCE RUPERT MURDOCH'S VISION DEBUTED ON AIR Hannity began working at Fox News in 1996, co-hosting "Hannity & Colmes" for 12 years before taking over his namesake primetime show.  He remembered the early days of Fox News and being unsure if the company would survive long-term. "It was a bold innovation," he said. "Everybody laughed. Nobody thought it would be successful. Not only did we very quickly become number one, but we've been able to maintain that number one position for a long period of time." VideoHannity credits the success of Fox News to staying true to the original motto: "Fair and balanced." "I know the media doesn’t portray us that...
    The Republican gubernatorial nominee opposes mask and vaccine requirements, putting him at odds with a broad majority of the state. A new Fox News poll shows that Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin is far out of step with most Virginians on how to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey — released Thursday — found registered Virginia voters overwhelmingly favor stricter measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in school settings. By a 71% to 25% margin, respondents said they support school face mask mandates for all teachers and students and favor requiring teachers be fully vaccinated, 66% to 31% A supermajority also backs President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees, which requires provide proof of vaccination or weekly negative coronavirus tests from all workers. Respondents supported the rule by a margin of 60% to 36%. Youngkin has come out strongly against each of these approaches. In an August press release, he attacked Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam's statewide mask mandate for K-12 schools and Democratic nominee...
    Oct. 7 will mark 25 years since Fox News launched. To mark the milestone, the cable news leader will release vignettes with some of the network’s top personalities. Mediaite acquired the promos, which feature Sean Hannity, Brit Hume, Steve Doocy, Chris Wallace, Tucker Carlson, Maria Bartiromo, Harris Faulkner, Bret Baier, Laura Ingraham, and Martha MacCallum. These will air starting Oct. 4, one day after an anniversary special that will air at 10 p.m. ET, according to the network. Hannity’s video is of the primetime host talking about being with Fox News since its launch and that, having previously been in radio, he “never imagined” he would be on television. “It was certainly a learning curve for me,” he said. “It changed my life in every way imaginable. I say what I say loudly,” added Hannity. “I say it proudly. And I say it unapologetically.” Hannity remarked that his father, Hugh Hannity, died six months after he started at Fox. “One thing my father would say to me, ‘Where did this come from?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know.’ It’s in...
    MAGA pillow magnate Mike Lindell returned to Fox New airwaves with a commercial decrying “cancel culture” on Thursday afternoon, two months after angrily pulling his MyPillow ads when the network refused to air promise for his “cyber symposium” peddling baseless election fraud conspiracies. “Hello, I’m Mike Lindell. Cancel culture has not only affected myself and MyPillow, but millions of you out there,” the pillow salesman said at the start of the one-minute commercial, which first aired during Fox News midday news broadcast America Reports. The rest of the ad featured Lindell hawking his autobiography, telling prospective pillow customers that after reading his book they “will believe with God all things are possible.” The MyPillow CEO also touted “the best prices ever” on his products in order to thank loyal customers for their “support” during his past few embattled months. On offer was a $99 “bundle” including his book and five pillows featuring illustrations of Biblical scenes with their corresponding texts on the back. Lindell, who has become one of former President Donald Trump’s most loyal election dead-enders, yanked all of...
    NBC Sports broadcasting legend Bob Costas waded into the subset of politics and professional sports Wednesday night when he mocked the apparent situational standards of Senator Ted Cruz and Fox News. Appearing on Cuomo Prime Time, Costas was asked by anchor Chris Cuomo to opine on news of Lebron James announcing he’s received the Covid-19 vaccine as a number of high profile NBA players, such as Kyrie Irving, Andrew Wiggins, and Bradley Beal, openly parade their hesitancy to get vaccinated. Cuomo set up the segment by bringing his viewers up to speed. “So, today, a guy from the right-wing camp that brought us ‘shut up and dribble’ decided he is going to support black athletes.” He then noted Covid vaccine skepticism of a number of NBA Players before noting that Senator Ted Cruz Tweeted, ‘I stand with Kyrie Irving, Andrew Wiggins, Bradley Beale, Jonathan Issac #NBA. Your body, your choice.'” “He’s vaccinated, by the way, Cruz,” Cuomo noted mockingly. “The senator’s comments come in the wake of Lebron James confirming he received the covid vaccine despite being initially skeptical. Important...
    Former House member Tulsi Gabbard visited Fox News to declare vindication after the indictment of an attorney accused of not disclosing his ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign when he reported damaging information about former President Donald Trump to the FBI. The indictment was handed down last week by special counsel John Durham. Attorney Michael Sussmann was charged with secretly acting on Hillary Clinton’s behalf when he fed the FBI information about Trump. Speaking with Pete Hegseth on Fox News Primetime, the former congresswoman took something of a victory lap — with Hegseth reminding the audience that Clinton once suggested Gabbard was a Russian asset. “It really points to the fact that we have a situation in our country where the powerful elite, people like Hillary Clinton and those around her — the deep state, the media — they’re all colluding to destroy outsiders who they deem as posing a threat to their power,” Gabbard argued. “So essentially, what they do is they create this dictatorship those who are outsiders, those who put country first, those who are not afraid...
    "These are individuals, as we've noted, and as we've been discussed," she continued, "we are expelling individuals based on Title 42, specifically because of COVID, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering, posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves." Doocy followed up by asking why Vice President Kamala Harris (D) hasn't been seen working on immigration despite being named by President Joe Biden to address the root causes of the crisis. Psaki claimed that Harris had been working on the issue diligently. The humanitarian crisis at Del Rio worsened quickly as more and more migrants arrived seeking refugee status and overwhelming Border Patrol capabilities. Many of the migrants were originally from Haiti, and some said they had been abused and oppressed in other countries after leaving their home country. On Monday, the Biden administration began an effort to fly some migrants from Texas to their home country of Haiti. Border Patrol Chief Raul L. Ortiz told reporters Sunday that efforts are underway to remove all...
    Fox News host Bill Hemmer revealed on Monday that he had walked out of a restaurant because he was asked to present a picture ID with his vaccine card. Hemmer made the admission during a report on New York City's vaccine rules for restaurants. "I popped into a restaurant three weeks ago," he explained. "I said, I don't have my vaccination card but I do have an app so I downloaded that and I showed it to them. And they said, 'Sir, can we see something with your name on it?'" "I said, 'Here's my Amex, here's my Visa,'" the Fox News host recalled. "And they said, 'Sir, can we see a card with your picture on it?'" "Did you show your Fox News badge?" co-host Dana Perino asked. "I turned around and walked out!" Hemmer exclaimed. "You guys can have it. Good luck. The joint was empty." It's not clear why Hemmer did not offer to show the restaurant staff his driver's license. Watch the video below from Fox News. Fox News host walks out of restaurant...
    With a full slate of college football and NFL games in action over the weekend, the most impressive catch came from fans in the stands. It was a wild scene Saturday night at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, during the Hurricanes home college football game against Appalachian State. As a cat dangled terrifyingly from the upper deck of the stadium, two fans about 50-feet below quickly grabbed their American flag in hopes of catching the animal.

    Former President Donald Trump’s interview with Greg Gutfeld was not a ratings draw for Fox News. Trump sat down with Gutfeld for an interview that aired in the 11 p.m. hour Wednesday night. The pair had a friendly interview, with Gutfeld noting that he was once critical of Trump (since Trump was elected president, Gutfeld has served as one of his most loyal boosters at Fox News). While Gutfeld! — and every Fox News program for that matter — demolished the CNN and MSNBC competition on Wednesday night, the 11 p.m. show lost to a fleet of Fox’s other shows. Sean Hannity had the highest rated show in cable news, drawing 3.07 million total viewers and 468,000 in the advertiser-coveted A25-54 demo. Tucker Carlson placed second, with 2.97 million viewers overall and 471,000 in the demo. Gutfeld’s interview with Trump placed 6th in all of cable news — behind Hannity, Carlson, Laura Ingraham, The Five and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow — drawing 2.11 million total viewers and 392,000 in the demo. Here is a full breakdown of Wednesday’s cable news...
    When Tomi Lahren appeared on Fox News' "Outnumbered" this week, the far-right pundit claimed that the only way California Gov. Gavin Newsom can possibly win California's gubernatorial recall election on September 14 is if widespread voter fraud occurs. It was a ridiculous comment given how Democratic California has become; a Republican presidential candidate hasn't won California since President George H.W. Bush in 1988. Regardless, no one on the "Outnumbered" panel challenged Lahren. And Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple, in his column, cites her remarks as a glaring example of Fox News "undermining American democracy." Lahren told her colleagues, "Yes, Gavin Newsom has raised a whole lot of money from teachers unions and special interests and tech, but that money is not going to save him. The only thing that will save Gavin Newsom is voter fraud. So, as they say, stay woke. Pay attention to the voter fraud going on in California because it's going to have big consequences not only for that state, but for upcoming elections." If Newsom prevails in the recall election, it won't be because...
    Several Fox News personalities and guests have despicably piled on President Joe Biden for talking about his late son Beau Biden during his visit with the families of servicemembers slain in last week’s bombings in Kabul. The president has been the subject of intense criticism since the government of Afghanistan collapsed, leading to a frantic and at times deadly evacuation over the past few weeks, but he’s also been the subject of a number of smears and unfair attacks. The most despicable of these is the miniature parade of Fox News personalities who have decided Biden is a jerk for speaking about his own son Beau — an Iraq War veteran who died young of brain cancer — while speaking to the families of service members who were killed. On Wednesday, Fox host Julie Banderas and her guest, Fox contributor Jason Chaffetz, both roasted Biden for this monstrous crime: Chaffetz: And when they did have a chance to talk about him, Joe Biden was talking about its own son, who unfortunately did die, but he didn’t die in combat. And...
    Comic and pundit Bill Maher used Fox News host Greg Gutfeld’s eponymous show as a premise to mock the network with a slate of parody “comedy” shows with Maher’s idea of Fox’s themes. On Friday night’s edition of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host devoted a table bit, as the parlance goes, about Fox News making a foray into comedy programming. Maher told his audience that “Fox News smells a good thing” with the success of Gutfeld, and that “they are coming up with, they have greenlit a whole new slate of conservative television shows.” “Would you like to see some of the things they have coming?” Maher asked, then added “I knew you would.” He then presented mock-up graphics for shows like Third Rock From The Sun [According To Science], Comedians In Cars Getting Jerky, I Love Doocy. Myth-Trusters, How I Met Your Handmaid, Mad About Jews With Steve Bannon. Q’s The Boss, I Dream Of Gerrymandering, Curb Your Environmentalism, and This Is Gus. You kind of have to see that one. Maher went on to tell his panel...
    "But here's the deal. You know, I wish you someday would say these things, you know as well as I do, that the former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1," he continued. "In return, he was given a commitment that the Taliban would continue to attack others but would not attack any American forces. Do you remember that? I'm being serious. I'm asking you a question," he added, interrupting Doocy. The president laid his head on his hands in frustration at Doocy during their crosstalk. Biden also stood by his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan after Doocy pressed him on the issue. "Yes I do, because look at it this way folks," Biden replied. "Imagine where we'd be if I had indicated on May the 1st I was not going to renegotiate an evacuation date. We were gonna stay there. I'd have only one alternative: Pour thousands of more troops back into Afghanistan to fight a...
    Fox and Friends‘ Ainsley Earhardt interviewed Arizona Sheriff Mark Lamb about his promise not to mandate vaccines, which she and Lamb claimed “went viral” with over 65,000 video views on Facebook. The video in question features Lamb delivering a dopey update to followers of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Facebook account, in which he promises to protect citizens’ rights to be infected by his deputies — yet somehow missed the golden opportunity to be a dude named “Lamb” calling other people “sheep.” Hey, folks, Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb here. With the increase in private businesses and even government organizations talking about mandating the vaccine, I wanted to let you know that here at the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, we do not mandate the vaccine. And as long as I’m your sheriff, we will never mandate the vaccine. We believe that your health choices are yours and yours alone. So whether you get the vaccine or don’t get the vaccine, that’s your private information here. We believe in America and freedom and we’re going to continue on with that. God...
    Seldom does the No. 1 program of the day come from outside of primetime. But on Tuesday, it was a Fox News afternoon show that topped the charts — thanks to an assist from the president. According to data from Nielsen, The Five finished No. 1 in cable news, and No. 2 in all of television, with 4.17 million total viewers. The program also drew 620,000 in the advertiser coveted adults 25-54 demographic. Undoubtedly, the numbers were bolstered by a 13-minute address from President Joe Biden — which began shortly after 5:00 p.m. ET.

    These Gifts for 1-Year-Olds Could Not Be More Perfect You paved the way for me: Philadelphia Flyers Kevin Hayes pays tribute to late brother Jimmy LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fox News Channel, bolstered by viewers' rapt attention to the U.S.-led evacuation from Afghanistan, was last week's most-watched TV outlet on broadcast or cable, according to Nielsen company figures out Tuesday. © Provided by Associated Press US Afghanistan The channel averaged just under 3 million viewers. Fox News Channel outpaced both its cable news competition and the broadcast networks that typically jockey for the top spot. The channel, which is popular with conservative-leaning viewers, surged following the Taliban's sudden conquest of Afghanistan this month and as the Biden administration directed the chaotic removal of U.S. citizens and Afghans at risk after the nearly 20-year war's end. The last time the channel claimed the No. 1 spot was in September 2020, when “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace moderated the debate between then-President Donald Trump and his ultimately successful challenger Joe Biden. MSNBC, which tends to attract liberal-leaning viewers, saw a...
    The traditional media seems to have a short memory, but no one has a shorter memory than conservative media. Seizing on the decades-long foreign policy disaster that is Afghanistan, conservatives are trying their darndest to blame President Biden’s administration for being the people who finally picked up the corrupt and incompetent can that has been kicked down the road for three administrations now. The issues that the United States and its allies face now that we have withdrawn from our 20-year occupation of Afghanistan are messy. They fall at the feet of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, “architect” of the Afghanistan invasion Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and Secretary of State Colin Powell. But regardless of our foreign policy’s pedigree, Joe Biden is the president now. And not unlike the South American caravans of yesteryear, conservative outlets play video of the human suffering and confusion that surrounds Afghanistan’s changing power dynamics and jack their fear and warmongering volume knobs way up. The hope is that the sounds coming from the Middle East and will drown out the wails of thousands of...
    As the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to ravage Florida and the southern region of the United States, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) appears dead-set on ignoring advice from experts to mitigate the spread of the virus. In Vanity Fair, Charlotte Klein explains how the governor's obsession with Fox News may be backfiring on him. Klein notes that a new report has revealed the governor "has yet to meet one-on-one with his state's top public health official this year" despite making time for numerous Fox News appearances. On multiple occasions, Gov. DeSantis, also a loyal Trump supporter, has been questioned about his handling of the pandemic. From his condemnation of vaccine passports and signing of an executive order banning mask mandates, to the uptick in COVID cases among children, DeSantis has faced criticism for his decisions. However, he has adamantly defended his actions by referring to baseless claims or hearsay from like-minded "experts." Some of those same off-base claims come straight from the conservative news depot: Fox News. Vanity Fair's Klein offers highlights from...
    Olympic gold medalist Kevin Durant For a network that’s been huffing Donald Trump’s underpants nonstop for the past five years, this is pretty rich. For some reason, Fox News decided it was newsworthy—and perhaps somewhat untoward—for a group of gold medal Olympians to throw back a few bevvies in the wake of their victories. They were “drunk,” according to Fox’s eyeball-grabbing headline. Though on a scale of 1 to Brett Kavanaugh, I can only assume they landed somewhat closer to Mitt Romney than our rascally Irish Cream-Quart justice. Ah, but these aren’t SCOTUS judges. Or four-martini lunchers. These are premier athletes. And, you know, they’re Black. “Shame” on them. xKevin Durant, Draymond Green were 'drunk' during Team USA celebrationhttps://t.co/hNIp2pOgeE— Fox News (@FoxNews) August 9, 2021 Fox News: United States men’s basketball players Kevin Durant and Draymond Green were seen celebrating during the team’s bus ride to the airport after the U.S. defeated France and won gold at the Tokyo Olympics this month. Green posted a series of Instagram videos to social media highlighting the team’s celebration. Okay, that’s pretty anodyne so far. Not...
    Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington went on the attack against Fox News after finding that they edited former President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated election claims out of an interview he gave to the network. Trump gave an interview to Fox’s Dan Bongino on Saturday night, where he declared a false victory, railed against Democrats, went into a bizarre hypothetical, and generally stormed through a myriad of other topics. As Trump claimed at one point that he was being politically persecuted by prosecutors in New York, he switched gears by once again claiming the 2020 election was “fake” and corrupted by voter fraud. Here’s a transcript from that segment of the interview, note Trump’s bolded, false claims. It’s a disgrace what’s happening, and I don’t think the country’s gonna stand for much longer, they are disgusted. You have a fake election, you have an election with voter abuse and voter fraud like nobody’s ever seen before, and based on that, and based on what happened, they are destroying our country, whether its at the border, whether its on crime, and plenty of...
    A Fox News guest called out the outlet on Wednesday for what he called “dishonest” coverage of the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. During a segment on The Faulkner Focus that showed footage of migrants in Mission, Texas, amid the coronavirus pandemic, substitute anchor Sandra Smith asked former Obama staffer Roger Fisk why there isn’t “a bigger effort” by the Biden administration to get the border “crisis under control.” “When you hear the Biden administration being criticized by both the right and the left, that probably means that they’re on to something,” replied Fisk, who cited the administration keeping Title 42, which allows the United States to expel migrants who come from a country where there’s a widespread disease and therefore may be a health risk. Fisk called Title 42 “a good thing” and “should be celebrated or, at least, welcome.” Fisk went on to call out Fox News’s coverage and cited a Fox News article about Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who called for impeaching President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and footage that shows migrants underneath...
    Senator Bill Cassidy (R- LA) got into it with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Monday night over the massive bipartisan infrastructure package. Ingraham called it a Democratic Trojan Horse that Republicans are falling for, and she started by asking Cassidy if he read the entire bill. “My staff and I have read it totally,” he said. “And defending it, my gosh, why wouldn’t you want this, as one of my colleagues said,” Cassidy continued, pointing to the billions of dollars in the package for issues like repairing bridges and saying that “it creates a heck of a lot of jobs.” Ingraham questioned Cassidy about other elements of the bill and played comments from Senator Mike Lee (R- UT) decrying it. “The White House is, as I said, quite giddy about this,” Ingraham said. “Reuters describes this as a glide path to the $3.5 trillion tonight in their write-up of this, senator.” “It is the person in my state stuck in traffic who’s fearful of their home flooding, who wants to have a better job, that actually would like to make more...
    Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images Fox News has quietly parted ways with longtime legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, months after the former judge was accused by two men of sexual assault. In a statement responding to a new lawsuit filed against the network by a former Fox Business employee, Fox revealed it had “parted ways” with Napolitano. The new lawsuit from a Fox News employee comes months after a South Carolina man named named Charles Corbishley filed a $10-million lawsuit in September 2020 against Napolitano, alleging that he sexual assaulted him in 1987 when Corbishley was a criminal defendant and Napolitano was the judge overseeing his case. Napolitano vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “completely false” through his lawyer. Fox News stood by the analyst in a statement. “Judge Napolitano has assured us in the strongest possible terms that these allegations are false and he will fight them aggressively in court,” Fox News said. Weeks after that lawsuit was filed in September 2020, another man sued Napolitano, accusing him of sexual assault and attempted rape in 2014 and 2015. “These allegations are total...
