Discussing the media’s reaction to Tuesday’s presidential debate during Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly and The Five co-host Dana Perino blasted the liberal press for their pandering to Hillary Clinton after pushing for Vice President Joe Biden to run that’s now turned into calls for him to stay out of the race.
During Monday evening's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable network, new host Trevor Noah mocked the efforts by the Cable News Network not only to promote the first Democratic debate in the 2016 presidential contest on Tuesday, but also to add another participant to the event: vice president Joe Biden.
Noah rattled off the current candidates: former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton, junior senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders, former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley, former U.S. senator from Virginia James Webb and former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee.
During Monday’s The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel (FNC), host Megyn Kelly and The Five co-host Dana Perino excoriated the liberal media for committing a double standard in their portrayal of the tea party, which they called racist, compared to the Black Lives Matter movement. Kelly noted the media reluctance to characterize the latter even after protesters chanted that police officers are “pigs in a blanket” who should be “fr[ied] like bacon.”
During a discussion on Thursday’s The Five about the Planned Parenthood videos, liberal co-host Geraldo Rivera suggested to fellow co-host Greg Gutfeld that aborted babies should made into “dog food” and after claiming that he “want[s] a cure” to various diseases using baby parts, Gutfeld schooled him by informing him that he “hope[s] you live long on the backs of dead fetuses.”
Kelly File host Megyn Kelly tore into the Obama administration at the top of Wednesday’s Fox News show for both their inability to comment on the illegal immigrant allegedly at the center of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle’s murder in San Francisco and refusal to crack down on sanctuary cities like the far-left Bay Area city. Ruling that the American people deserv e “a direct, straightforward, simple answer” to the case, Kelly berated them for allowing sanctuaries cities that's led to “lawlessness at the local and federal level.”
Former White House press secretary Dana Perino appeared on The Kelly File on Friday night to lament that she shared a touching story about President Bush visiting wounded soldiers in Washington with National Public Radio, but they edited out a family who was overjoyed to see the president, choosing to focus just on an angry mother who was mad at Bush. "Why are your children okay, but my son is here?"
On Fox News's "The Five" last week, the panel had some fun coming up with alternative songs and performers U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry could have employed in his visit to France last week.
The video which follows starts with Greg Gutfeld exposing how the song used — "You've Got a Friend" as delivered by James Taylor, who was having a hard time even keeping his microphone properly positioned — actually served to expose the Obama administration's kiss-and-make-up hypocrisy. At clip's end, Andrea Tantaros came up with the best song suggestion, which, sadly, could properly be applied to the person delivering tonight's State of the Union speech.
During Thursday’s edition of The Five on the Fox News Channel (FNC), co-host Bob Beckel displayed his middle finger toward fellow panelist Jesse Watters during a discussion about how race-baiting by Democrats in the runup to the 2014 midterm elections backfired.
The discussion erupted following a point from Watters that the Democratic Party uses race in trying to convince voters to not vote Republican because they’re afraid to lose scores of African-American voters that have routinely voted for Democrats. Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle added that such rhetoric doesn’t work in bringing Americans together.
On Wednesday, the Fox News show The Five tackled the controversial video showing a New York City woman repeatedly receiving catcalls from random men over a 10-hour period. While most of the Fox hosts felt that as long as the men weren’t being obnoxious and following the woman for a long period of time the comments were harmless, liberal Bob Beckel predictably took things to a whole new level. After Dana Perino called out one guy that “walks with her for five minutes, that is creepy. And I wouldn't like that” Beckel chimed in by disgustingly saying “I just think she got 100 catcalls. Let me add 101. Damn, baby, you're a piece of woman.”
On Thursday, the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) The Five spent part of its program discussing the latest study from the Media Research Center, which detailed the vast disparity in stories filed by the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC on their evening newscasts in the lead-ups to both the 2006 and 2014 midterm elections.
Co-host Eric Bolling introduced the study and its findings in the show’s second segment: “A new Media Research Center study shows the network evening newscasts have essentially blacked out bad election news for Democrats.”
