Congressman Allen West: Obama's 'Liberal Progressive Agenda' Is 'Antithesis' to U.S. (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 3rd 2011 5:23PM
As a Tea Party-backed candidate for congress, Allen West made a name for himself by using strong language to rail against the Obama administration.

The Florida republican won his race, and during an appearance on 'Fox News Sunday' (Sunday 9AM ET on Fox) he told host Chris Wallace that he wasn't going to back away one bit from his previous statements that the current government is "tyrannical," "socialist" and "despicable."

"I think it is," West doubled down. "When you look at the nationalization of so much of our production. Being the automobile industry being the health care industry. ... When you look at the fact that we are creating more victims, and making people more dependent on the government."

"We're going in the wrong direction, and I think that the liberal progressive agenda is not the thing that American people want and is the antithesis to who we are."

We have to warn West that if he keeps up with the over-the-top rhetoric, he's going to increasingly find himself on television.

Juan Williams: Sarah Palin 'Can't Stand on The Intellectual Stage With Barack Obama' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 28th 2010 11:20AM
Appearing on Fox News Sunday (Sunday, 9 AM ET Fox) panelist Juan Williams argued that none of the republicans being mentioned as potential 2012 candidates have the charisma to match Barack Obama's beside Sarah Palin, who isn't smart enough to challenge Obama.

"There is nobody out there except Sarah Palin who can dominate the stage and she can't stand on the intellectual stage with Obama," Williams said.

Williams' statement was followed by oohs and groans from the panel. We're not sure if this was because they disagreed with Williams assessment or because they were surprised he would speak so candidly about Palin, a fellow Fox News employee.

Newt Gingrich: 'More Inclined to Run (For President) Than Not Run' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 6th 2010 5:40PM
Potential presidential candidates usually play coy about their intention to run, right up until the moment that they officially throw their hat in the ring. However, former GOP Speaker of the House and current Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich is bucking that convention.

In an interview with Chris Wallace, on 'Fox News Sunday' (Sundays, 9 AM ET on Fox), Gingrich strongly hinted that he will be seeking the republican nomination in 2012.

"Callista (Gingrich's wife) and I will make a decision probably at the end of February beginning of March," he told Wallace when asked about his presidential aspirations.

Then Gingrich added this:

"We're much more inclined to run than not run, and I think everything we've done over the last year, talking to friends, thinking things through, has made us more inclined to believe it's doable."

If the 67-year-old, who hasn't held elected office since 1998, does seek the nomination, there's a good chance he will be opposed by fellow Fox News contributors Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin.

Senator Claire McCaskill on START Treaty Debate: Republicans Need To Stop 'Hiding Behind the Skirts of John Kyl' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 29th 2010 10:15AM
Appearing on 'Fox News Sunday' (Sunday 9:30 AM ET on Fox) , Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill used some interesting language while blasting Senate republicans for dragging their heals on the ratification of the START Treaty with Russia, a bilateral agreement to draw down each country's nuclear arsenal.

"Instead of playing politics and hiding behind the skirts of (Arizona senator) John Kyl, I hope the Republicans look at (Indiana Senator) Richard Lugar, the ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, who has said, unequivocally we need to do this START treaty."

And with that, McCaskill has surged ahead of Sharon "Man Up" Angle for the most boldly emasculating insult of the year, female politician category.

Sarah Palin Defends Her Reality Show: 'Wasn't Ronald Reagan an Actor?' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 1st 2010 5:37PM
On 'Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace' (Sunday, 9 AM ET on Fox) Sarah Palin fought back against criticism from Karl Rove that she might lack the "gravitas" to be president because she will be starring in a reality TV show called 'Sarah Palin's Alaska.'

This was Rove's full quote, which Chris Wallace read to Palin:

"With all due candor, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American Calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office' . . . There are high standards that the American people have for (the presidency), and they require a certain level of gravitas."

"I agree with that, that the standards should be high for anyone who would ever want to run for president," Palin shot back. "Like, um, wasn't Ronald Reagan an actor, wasn't he in Bedtime for Bonzo -- bozo, something. . . "

The name of the film Palin was reaching for was 'Bedtime for Bonzo,' in which Reagan played a Professor trying to teach chimpanzees human emotions. The former Governor may have a point: compared to such a timeless classic like 'Bonzo,' 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' may end up looking downright Reaganesque by comparison.

James Cameron Doesn't Think Much of Fox News' Glenn Beck

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 24th 2010 7:32PM
Glenn BeckActually, that's putting it mildly. James Cameron probably has a higher opinion of mosquito bites because as Ned Flanders once put it, "They sure are fun to scratch."

Cameron had a sit down with Hollywood Reporter reporter Alex Ben Block for the DVD release of his Oscar nominated film 'Avatar' and the two somehow got to talking about global warming and the pandemic of people on both sides of the aisles.

This segued into that all-important political topic of Glenn Beck, prompting Cameron to call him a "[BLANK]ing [BLANK]hole," only he didn't say "blank." Use your imagination.

Keith Olbermann Denies that 'Countdown' is Going Down

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 5th 2010 8:35PM
Fox and MSNBC have been attacking each other with more frequency (but probably less violently) than the Black Spy and the White Spy, and one of their main forms of ammunition have been their respective ratings.

So naturally 'Countdown', hosted by the rather large (both in stature and physical size) talking head Keith Olbermann, had to respond to a report that appeared in the New York Post's "Page Six" column claiming that his show is one baboon hair away from cancellation hell.

Brit Hume has some advice for Tiger Woods

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 4th 2010 11:27AM
Fox News Channel's Brit Hume gave Tiger Woods a little bit of advice yesterday. It wasn't about his golf swing or what media strategy to embrace to get back on the good side of the public or even just a general "hey, keep it in your pants, pal." Hume said that the only way that Woods can be truly forgiven is if he changes his religion.

Let the controversy begin!

Sesame Street unveils new Bill O'Reilly character

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 26th 2009 2:36PM
Remember the brouhaha with Sesame Street over their alleged swipe at Fox News? Sesame Street has officially extended an olive branch.

Sherrie Westin, executive vice president of the Sesame Workshop, appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to explain the "Pox News" joke and unveil a new character that pays homage to "Papa Bear" as part of the show's long-standing Grouch journalism homages. Just so there's no confusion, the new Sesame Street character is the guy in the suit on the left, not the right, I think.

Did Fox make Beck back off?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 23rd 2009 10:02AM
Glenn BeckEven though the sudden pull out from several sponsors hasn't caused Fox to prematurely eject Glenn Beck from his time slot, he was suspiciously absent from the airwaves this week.

Some suggest this Beck-free week wasn't just a much needed vacation for the host, or for the viewer for that matter.

TVNewser spoke to some Fox insiders who claim the network ordered the silver haired devil to take a week off so some of the heat over his advertising boycott could die down.

What if the Apollo 11 moon landing didn't happen under Cronkite's watch?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 20th 2009 1:04PM
Walter Cronkite on the cover of TimeWalter Cronkite's passing didn't mark the end of an era in the TV news business. The era he helped produce and prolong died long before he did.

It's hard for me to ever imagine a time when people considered a major network news anchor as America's most trusted source for anything. Claims of bias and political persuasion being injected into every story with a meat syringe created a thick fog that made it very hard to cover anything with a modicum of honesty.

Cronkite, however, was the man people turned to when something blew up, exploded, imploded, launched, landed or any other number of descriptive verbs, because his goal wasn't to make news every time he stepped in front of a camera. His goal was just to report it.

The Daily Show's first 100 days under Obama

by Danny Gallagher, posted May 6th 2009 12:03PM
Barack Obama and Jon Stewart on The Daily ShowWhen Jon Stewart announced before a studio full of deafening cheers and Stephen Colbert's deafening silence that Barack Obama would become the 44th President of the United States, the show seemed to be in an interesting pickle.

Could the show be just as funny as it had been under an administration that didn't blur the line between setups and punchlines? Could Stewart and friends find the funny in a president who inspires more love and fear in people than a teddy bear with a switchblade?

So let's grade The Daily Show's first 100 days under socialism President Obama report card.

Is Mike Wallace really all done with TV?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 10th 2008 9:25AM
WallaceHave we seen the last of Mike Wallace on TV? If you believe his son, Fox newsman Chris Wallace, the answer is yes. Mike Wallace, who has been recovering from a January triple bypass heart surgery, recently had a fall in his home in New York. Fortunately, Mike wasn't badly hurt, but the doctors are watching him closely in the hospital because of the complications from his heart surgery. He is on blood thinner because of the bypass and if he starts to bleed from the fall, he could bleed out.

According to Wallace's son, Chris, host of Fox News Sunday, the heart "is working fine," but he added that his 90 year old father is done with TV. Does CBS know that for sure? I mean, will there be no future Mike Wallace interviews or special interviews? He retired from 60 Minutes in 2006, but remains with the network as Correspondent Emeritus. Chris made it sound like there will be no more TV ever for Mike Wallace.

He also said of his father, "He's doing really well," having spent time with him while he was in New York at Fox's studios to report on the presidential primaries.

Chris Wallace doesn't want Katie Couric's job

by Allison Waldman, posted May 18th 2008 3:02PM
Mike + Chris WallaceAccording to the Hollywood Reporter, Chris Wallace is on the short list for replacements if -- more likely when -- Katie Couric departs the CBS Evening News anchor desk. Wallace, son of the CBS elder statesmen and 60 Minutes attack dog Mike Wallace, has been host of Fox News Sunday since 2003. But the guy isn't interested.

"As much as I grew up in CBS and as much as I associate that anchor chair with Walter Cronkite and the history of broadcasting, I have never been so happy as I have working the last four-plus years at Fox. I suspect I've had a much better last couple of years than Katie Couric."

Clinton goes ballistic on FOX - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 25th 2006 12:33PM
Clinton goes apeshit on FOXWhat happens when you mix Bill Clinton, a morning issues show produced by the conservative FOX News Channel, and a question that he didn't do enough to capture Osama bin Laden? You get the tirade below, which aired yesterday morning on FOX News Sunday. When host Chris Wallace questions the former president on how his administration failed to get bin Laden, Clinton got increasingly upset, to the point where he was almost yelling at Wallace. I could go over what he said, but you're better off watching the ten-minute video and you can decide for yourself whether he is right or not. Embedded video is after the jump; it's been one of YouTube's most-watched videos to date.

By the way, here is Wallace's reaction, care of FishbowlDC.
