Dave Clams Up

Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs seems to have something stuck in his craw lately. Other than monologic Tweets, the friendly sports guy who in the past has frequently responded to his Twitter followers has seemingly gone mute for almost the last three weeks.* Perhaps, the FNC brass has dressed him down the same way that it did to his former F&FW colleague, Ainsley Earhardt.**

After her reprimand as to certain communications with viewers, Ainsley said, “I’m not doing it  any more:*** If Dave follows Ainsley’s over-reaction, he will find himself ill-served. He needs to remember that Ainz was axed and was subsequently replaced with fan-friendly co-host Alisyn Camerota. Furthermore, Dave should realize that F&FW fans are often like family: Sometimes, a poke in the rib is an affectionate jab.

Dave, your thick-skinned friend and co-anchor, FNC Twitter king Clayton Morris may not be such a bad role model. Get back in the game!

    Hi Jake,

    Yes, I noticed that too. I certainly hope none of us tweeters have inadvertently offended him in anyway, shape or form. It kind of defeats the purpose of tweeting when one doesn’t respond to one’s tweets. Whatever the reason, hope everything is fine with him.

    I missed the incident with Ainsley “not doing it anymore”. What is that about. I tried to search your blog, Jake, but came up empty. The link provided didn’t take me to it either, just back to the home page.

    Just curious what it is all about.

    Jerziegrl, not sure what happened as to the link: Just tried it, & it worked. As to “not doing it anymore,” Ainz seemed to indicate she regretted corresponding with viewers after she got into trouble with the FNC suits (according to TVNewser). For more info, please try the link again.

    Dave, I hope that Dave B. will continue to grow. The self-described “princess” needs to be able to not mind the “pea” so very much.

    True, oh so true, Jake. Thanks. Have a great weekend.
