The Fox News Channel will not host any Democratic primary debates during the 2020 election cycle, the Democratic National Committee announced Wednesday, saying it doesn't have confidence the conservative-leaning network would responsibly handle such an event.
It’s 2021, and president donald trump will shortly be sworn in for his second term. The 45th president has visibly aged over the past four years. He rests heavily on his daughter Ivanka’s arm during his infrequent public appearances.
Before you get too excited about O’Reilly’s firing, look at his replacements.
Since neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was sworn in as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development on March 2, we’ve barely heard a peep from him. Is it because he’s adjusting to his new position, for which he has no relevant experience? Probably. Is it because, as his surrogate said, that he’s not qualified to run a federal agency? Could be that, too.
Bill O'Reilly has for years been Fox's most valuable on-air talent. He may also have been its loneliest.
21st Century Fox is parting ways with the host of The O'Reilly Factor, who stood atop cable news ratings for years. Tucker Carlson will replace O'Reilly in the 8 p.m. ET time slot.
The Fox News host abruptly announced "a vacation" amid sexual harassment allegations.
Is he waving or drowning? Swimming or sinking? I ask this question because we’re more than two months in and the trauma has not subsided, but it has, perhaps, bifurcated. Sure, Trump still shows alarming potential as a would-be tyrant, contemptuous of constitutional proprieties, and prone to trashing every last norm of liberal democracy. But he is also beginning to appear simultaneously as a rather weak chief executive, uninterested in competent management or follow-through, bedeviled by divisions within his own party, transfixed by cable news, and swiftly discrediting himself by an endless stream of lies, delusions, and conspiracy theories. Even the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal challenged his credibility last Tuesday.
It’s a rare event when President Trump tweets approvingly of a journalist, but yesterday Eli Lake of Bloomberg View gained that unusual honor.
In July of 2010, journalist and provocateur Andrew Breitbart posted a video excerpt of remarks on his site purporting to expose “evidence of racism coming from a federal appointee and NAACP award recipient.” This was an explosive charge. The Tea Party was ascendant then and racial grievance was one of its animating features.
Roger Ailes' future as chief of Fox News was thrown into doubt on Tuesday as several news organizations including Variety reported his imminent departure following allegations of sexual harassment.
Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes is facing a sexual harassment suit from former anchor Gretchen Carlson, as well as allegations of similar behavior from six other women. But this is not the first time Rupert Murdoch has had to deal with a harassment case in his media empire.
From the network’s inception, Roger Ailes has been so synonymous with Fox News that it’s hard to imagine the operation running without the seasoned TV programmer and former Republican political adviser at the helm.
Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News host claims she lost her job for refusing CEO's alleged unwanted sexual advances.
On “Fox and Friends,” Gretchen Carlson was the archetypal dim blonde on the couch, sitting between two men and struggling to understand the crazy ways of the modern world.
Conservative talk-radio stars gleefully watched as The Donald rubbed everyone the wrong way. But now that he’s turned his fire on Cruz, they’re picking sides.
Bomb ISIS. Go ahead. They deserve it. It certainly satisfies the primal need for visible retaliation after the Paris attacks. It may even do some good in the struggle against terrorism in Europe. Some—but probably not very much.
It has become a commonplace since Friday’s attacks that whatever else the political effects of the carnage in Paris may be, they mean that candidates with foreign-policy experience now have an edge. You should be skeptical of this claim. It’s not just, as Brendan Nyhan writes, that events like this tend to have very little effect on the eventual outcome. Nyhan caveats that “the attacks may prompt a sustained focus on foreign policy among Republicans, who are still searching for an issue to run on against Democrats in 2016.” If that is true, it would seem that the candidates with the most to lose are Donald Trump and Ben Carson, who currently lead the GOP field.
To the consternation of the GOP, Ben Carson still remains a significant player in the Republican presidential field. Carson appears to have no interest in what his challengers say or do, and he could not care less about how they speak of him. Remaining above the fray has been a tactic that Carson has used superbly throughout his campaign. But the most alarming aspect of his campaign thus far is the apparent disregard he has for what he says and does.
Many may object to his views on Mexicans and the looks of Carly Fiorina, and his sneering at Megyn Kelly—and much more—but at least, when it comes to interior decoration, Donald Trump is no slave to mimsy restraint. It can be safely assumed that Donald Trump does not spend his weekends at Ikea.
