Funny how the Fox people have instantly turned on her.

 

 

Funny indeed.

 

It's called job preservation.

Anyone catch Larry Wilmore's bit on this? He had already predicted Frau Gretchen would be fired from Fox after her coming out for an assault weapons ban.

 I deeply miss the Stewart/Colbert hour.

 

Oh gosh, yes.  I was going to post that after some of the Daily Show clips linked above brought back huge nostalgia pangs.  With all the **** going on in the country now, that hour would have been must see TV.  I miss Stewart calling out Fox on all the bull****. And I would have loved to see how the conservative Colbert character covered Trump day-to-day.

 

I tried to transition to Trevor Noah and Larry Wilmore, but it just wasn't working for me. I rarely watch now.  I do watch Colbert on his CBS show fairly often, and his opening segments are usually pretty smart and funny.  But it's tough living up to The Colbert Report.

Really?

Some of his segments are indeed exceptional, but his schtick is all the same. I get so tired of his facetious outrage pounding his fists on the table, or his constant "that's like saying ..."(insert ridiculous statement)

I'm with you there. He is good in very small doses but I could never actually watch an entire show

According to two sources briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox’s outside probe of the Fox News executive, led by New York–based law firm Paul, Weiss, Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances toward her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox. Kelly, according to the sources, has described her harassment by Ailes in detail.

 

Kelly’s comments to investigators might explain why the Murdochs are moving so quickly to oust Ailes. As New York reported yesterday, Rupert and sons James and Lachlan, the three top executives at 21st Century Fox, have, according to multiple sources, decided that Ailes needs to be removed. Kelly, who has become something of a feminist icon thanks to her tangles with GOP nominee Donald Trump, is seen by many inside Fox as the future of the network. She’s currently in contract negotiations, and given that Bill O’Reilly has said he’s considering retirement, Fox can’t afford to lose her.

The Gretchen thing made no sense, but I can understand harassing Megyn Kelly, even if she does have blood coming out of whatever......

Going to be interesting to see what Fox News looks and sounds like in a couple years.

Hearing Ailes is huddled with advisers in "full on crazy mode." He's furious that Megyn Kelly is now being credited with his ouster

21CF statement: Roger is at work. The review is ongoing. The only agreement that is in place is his existing employment agreement.

Predicto getting nervous

Saw something that folks at Fox are worried that people like O'Reilly will quit if Aisles is forced out.

I swear between the convention and this, I've been waiting for this week for literally half of my life

Of course Ann the journalist knew all about this, but never felt the need to look into it before because conservative extremists never attack their own, it might hurt the never ending and sole purpose of accusing liberals of stuff.

 

How forthright of her to mention it now that it is public knowledge.  Next she is going to reveal that Richard Nixon bugged the Oval Office.
