Shepard Smith, a long-time anchor for the Fox News Channel, signed a new multi-year contract on Thursday, when he stated during an interview with Joe Concha, a media reporter for The Hill political website, that opinion programming on his network doesn't “really have rules” and exists “strictly to be entertaining.”
During an interview you would not see on such liberal cable television channels as CNN or MSNBC, radio host Mark Levin slammed Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) while the conservative activist was a guest on Wednesday evening’s edition of the Fox News Channel's Hannity .
CNN's Chris Cuomo will soon leave New Day for the network's 9 p.m. time slot. His new Cuomo Prime Time will compete with Fox News's Sean Hannity and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. In a Wednesday Variety piece, Cuomo said of his new competitors: "I don’t know where their partisan fights are getting us" — as if the CNN host himself isn't partisan.
In a sit-down interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity on Monday, Vice President Mike Pence was asked about the bitter bigoted comments from ABC’s Joy Behar attacking all Christians made on The View. The Vice President accepted an over-the-phone private apology but encouraged her to make a public apology on her show to all Christians.
Como parte de la promoción de su nuevo libro, el presentador del Noticiero Univisión y activista de la amnistía Jorge Ramos entró al cuadrilátero de la cadena Fox News el miércoles en la noche, en entrevista con Sean Hannity. Ramos mayormente se negó a responder a las preguntas de Hannity y acusó tanto al presentador de Fox como a sus simpatizantes de criminalizar a los inmigrantes.
Promoting his new book, Univision anchor and amnesty advocate Jorge Ramos wandered into a verbal cage match on the Fox News Channel Wednesday evening with host Sean Hannity, refusing to answer Hannity’s questions and accusing both he and his supporters of unfairly portraying all illegal immigrants as criminals. Right off the start, Ramos wouldn’t even answer Hannity’s question if he supports deported illegal immigrants with further criminal records.
As the Media Research Center’s Curtis Houck reported on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta threw a hissy fit following yet another White House press briefing where he wasn’t called on to ask a question (the third by his count). And in a rather enthusiastic appearance on Fox News Channel’s Hannity, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer ripped into the moody CNN journalist for acting so immaturely.
On Tuesday night as the election results came in from Alabama, a number of news outlets reported on the Department of Justice obtaining thousands of text messages between controversial FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page showing their disdain for “awful,” “idiot,” and “loathsome” President Donald Trump, creating yet another headache for Robert Mueller as the Trump-Russia probe drags on.
New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters on Saturday joined the odd new trend in the mainstream press of attacking Fox News for actually covering political stories besides Donald Trump -- especially those involving Hillary Clinton’s and Russia. Fox and other right-leaning outlets were also mocked for not obsessing as much as the rest of the press on President Trump’s Russia controversies in “As Russia Inquiry Widens, an Alternative Narrative Emerges on the Right.”Another Times article accuses the network of “pushing its own version of reality,” as if that’s not what the Times does every day. It’s apparently easier to write criticism of other media outlets than to actually covering scandals involving Hillary Clinton and Russia.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far-left host Bill Maher lashed out at Fox News and wrongly claimed that it had ignored Republican Senator Jeff Flake's speech attacking President Donald Trump. Although panel member Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast did jump in to inform Maher that Flake's speech was covered live, both she and liberal CNN commentator Van Jones claimed that "they didn't talk about it" afterwards. In fact, a Nexis search finds that evening FNC hosts Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, and Brian Kilmead all led with Flake's speech, while Sean Hannity also did a report on the story.
Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, MSNBC contributor and former talk radio host Charlie Sykes displayed the latest example of why he is the type of right-leaning figure that liberal outfits like MSNBC include who will join liberal analysts in bashing Republicans. Sykes took aim at Fox News supposedly not informing its Republican-leaning viewers on the nefarious activities of President Donald Trump, and likened conservatives to a "cult" that always supports "Dear Leader" and "Orange Deuce."
