Tarlov Believes Her Lying Ears

October 19, 2019

“[Hillary] didn’t call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.” On Fox & Friends Weekend this Saturday morning, FNC contributor Jessica Tarlov apparently believed her lying ears. Or, maybe, she just had had a really late Friday night.

In a segment subtitled “Clinton Suggests Russians are “Grooming” Gabbard,” F&FW co-host Jedediah Bila played a David Plouffe podcast with Hillary Clinton saying, “I think they…are grooming [Gabbard] to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians…That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up because she’s also a Russian asset.”* [Underscoring added for emphasis.]

Less than a minute later, Jedediah remarked, “For [Hillary] even, I mean, to come out with this type of statement and say you’re a Russian asset. She has no evidence of that. Does this help the Democrats in any way to have her doing this?”

Jessica responded, “Well, if you listen to the interview, she didn’t call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.”

Well, Jessica if you listen to the interview carefully, she did call Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset.

“Prevaricating Pete” Gets Engaged

June 16, 2019

Jennifer Rnderstandauche: Jenny Cunningham? This morning Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Pete Hegseth announced his engagement to “Jenny Cunningham” after the “Shot of the Morning” (two photos) showed him with his new beautiful blonde fiancee in the Caribbean.

Pete gushed, “So, a week ago, I asked the most beautiful, wonderful, smartest, toughest, best woman I know on the planet, Jenny Cunningham, to be my wife. We are so thrilled!”…You know I’m so blessed. And, we’re so happy we took a week vacation.” He continued, “And, you know, she’s got three kids; I’ve got three; we’ve got one together, little Gweny. And, we’re so excited for our big whole family.”…We had a great time. She was wonderful.” Turning to the camera, he said, “I love you, babe!” Tellingly, apparently, he remarked, “A lot of people here know Jenn.”

Turning to Pete, fellow co-host Jedediah Bila replied, “Congratulations to you! I love Jenny! So, congratulations! Yeah, Jenn’s the best!” Fellow co-host Ed Henry agreed, saying, “Yeah! She’s great!”*

“Prevaricating Pete”? According to Married Biography (hereafter MB), Pete has been married twice before: First, to Meredith Schwarz (photo of the then just married couple) for five years (2004-2009), and, second, to Samantha Hegseth for seven years (photo of the then just wed couple) and had children named Gunner, Boone, and Rex. According to MB, the  reason for [the] failed marriage, Pete was in an extramarital affair with his Fox Executive Producer Jennifer Rauchet ….With this affair he has a daughter Gweny (or, apparently, a/k/a as Gwayne born August 2017 (photos of the two together, including one with Gweny).”

The reason for any prevarication by Pete may be understandably explained by MarriedWiki reportage, saying, “Pete is head over heels in love with both Jennifer and Gwayne. He is open about his affair with Jennifer but Jennifer is quite secretive as she is not on social media.”

Ainsley Available Again?

May 17, 2019

Ringless again! First, their was apparently well-connected Kevin Wayne McKinney: Then, there was former Clemson quarterback Will Porter. But, apparently, the gorgeous queen of the Fox & Friends weekday curvy couch queen Ainsley Earhart is on the market again. The author noticed yesterday that she was not sporting a wedding band: In fact, after the author checked she has not worn it all week. Seemingly, the lovely lady is available anew.

According to a Page Six article which I had not read until I did some research today on Ainsley, she has separated from Will Porter and has no interest in reconciliation with him due to a purported dalliance that he reportedly had with one of her closest friends. If true, it is purportedly the second time that she has had a similar sad relationship in that regard.

Hopefully, she will find a kinder future–with or without someone.

[Author’s aside: Strangely, Ainsley followed the author yesterday but she has unfollowed the author since.]

Aly & John: Too much NYE Fun?

January 1, 2019

Six minutes late to broadcast. Yes, today New Day co-hosts, the lovely Alisyn Camerota and wiseacre John Berman showed up six minutes late this morning with no apology (or explanation).* Usually, the duo appear at 5:59 a.m. ET (which, by the way, New Day, screws up DVR recording of other channels unless manually monitored). But, today, inexplicably, they did not: In the author’s opinion, viewers and fans deserved the courtesy of an explanation as the show began. Unfortunately, they got none.

Aly, John, and New Day producers, step up your game.

*New Day – 01/01/19 (@ 6:05 a.m. ET).

[Author’s aside: In all fairness, Aly was one of the journalists chosen to usher in the NYC New Year (pic).]

Buttery Nipples Gone

November 1, 2018

But not the drinks. In a humorous apparently politically correct decision, Land O’Lakes decided to “udderly” change the face of their butter (new look). Their erstwhile iconic comely American Indian maiden’s photo was altered for apparently politically “appropriate” purposes.

Instead of the nubile Native American beauty’s photo of her holding a pound of butter in front of her breasts and her showing her bare knees at the end of her short skirt with distinctly apparent breast with nipple aspects, there is now a close-up of her face. For those who are ignorant of this seeming tease, if one simply cuts out the knees and places them where the pound of butter was in front of her breasts, it appears to be a naughty nod to the guy and gal who formerly bought their tempting product.

It will be interesting to see how the product sells now. Perchance, it will depend on the guy or gal who buys the once seemingly salaciously packaged product. Of course, sex sells–and, we shall see as to the Land O’Lakes lady’s butter.

Jedediah’s Sexy F&FW Debut

September 9, 2018

Sharp, saucy Staten Island siren with sexy stems! To the strains of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer,” first time guest co-guest and former “The View co-host Jedediah Bila made her glam debut in the center seat on the Fox & Friends Weekend curvy couch. As the camera zoomed in on her saucily “shaking it” in a short blue dress and her more sedate male co-hosts Pete Hegseth and Ed Henry, the leggy lovely exclaimed, “I’m already dancing!”

To the F&FW audience, Ed promised, “You’re going to get Jedediah a lot more.” And, the Wagner College valedictorian was unveiled to the fans indeed as the show progressed.

In a subsequent segment subtitled, “Jedediah on the Curvy Couch,” on a personal level Jedediah revealed that she is from Staten Island and that she was a Catholic school girl; and that she had recently wed. (According to U.S. Weekly, the thirty-nine year old married Jeremy Scher on February 17 in Huntington, New York, her affianced with whom she had “been living together for a while.”) She added that she went on honeymoon to Italy, enjoying a hot air balloon in Florence yet fearful and cursing; took a Vespa scooter to tour; and took a chairlift up a mountain. However, she indicated that she sadly had to leave the light of her life Emma, an adorable white “toy” dog behind.

In the same segment, supra, on a professional level, she recounted that she had reviewed a book by conservative talk show host (and now FNC host of Life, Liberty, and Levin) Mark Levin, Liberty and Tyranny, and that is how she made her first appearance on FNC on Sean Hannity’s show (March 10, 2010). Chiming in on cue, Ed asked, “Are you working on a book?” Jedediah animatedly answered, “I am working on a book! It’s comes out November 9….It’s called “#Do Not Disturb: How I Ghosted My Cell Phone to Take Back My Life.” It’s going to change your life: You’ve got to get this book!” Elaborating, she remarked, “I took steps: I had a technology addiction, and I realized how crazy it was! I share personal anecdotes; I share the whole journey–crazy ex-boyfriend story. You’re not going to miss anything!”

And, that was just the beginning of Jedediah’s audition and the weekend!

Abby’s View Table: Whose F&FW Curvy Couch?

August 28, 2018

Now she’s gone. Who will rule the F&FW curvy couch? Yes, sadly, today, the sexy short-lived former queen of Fox & Friends Weekend, good girl Abby Huntsman Tweeted, “It’s official! Thrilled to return to where it all began for me …never dreamt back then I’d one day join @theviewabc table.” Now, the question is what lovely royal will be given Abby’s crown and scepter to reign on the F&FW curvy couch after her untimely abdication.

Probably, the hottest F&FW co-host was the comely Kiran Chetry; the naughtiest, perhaps, was Juliet Huddy (who always smilingly blushed when the blonde heard her show intro’d by Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy, saying, “Yes, the drapes match the rug”), and the strangest transmogrifying one, Alisyn Camerota, a sexy, smart gal who later “woke” to another whole new world–CNN.

Regrettably, the sexy, sharp Puerto Rican Five siren Kimberly Guilfoyle left FNC under some less than flattering accusations. And, strangely, the leggy lovely Nicole Petallides left her FBN:AM fans without an explanation but, happily, she still graces the screen as a reporter for FBN. Molly Line seems to be a possibility since she seems to be getting more air time on FNC on shows such as Outnumbered as of late: Formerly, she oft guest co-hosted F&FW when the suits were seemingly trying to transition Aly out–without success.

So, who should be the next F&FW queen? If it were up to the author, FNC would bring back Nepalese goddess Kiran Chetry: The former F&FW & America Morning co-host has the killer looks, personality, and smarts to arouse her F&FW fans to a fabulous morning. (She’s done her time, and she has been loyal to the network and her fans.) If not Kiran, Nicole would be awesome on the curvy couch as the brainy, famously leggy Greek beauty who will waken F&FW viewers with a jolt of pulchritudinous femme fatale java.

Nevertheless, the author believes that the odds favor Rachel Campos-Duffy who has begun to occupy the center seat lately on both Fox & Friends and Fox & Friends Weekend. She’s a lovely lady who came to the public’s consciousness as a cast member on MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco before becoming a regular guest co-host of The View–and she’s the wife of Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI). Like former F&FW co-anchor Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Survivor contestant (the predecessor of Anna Kooiman, who was the predecessor of Abby), Rachel starred in her own reality series and she has political connections like Abby Huntsman (whose dad is the current Ambassador to Russia).

Stay tuned.

 

Abby’s Adieu (F&FW): Short & Sweet

August 12, 2018

“Abby, please don’t go, too!” But, sadly, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman did just that in spite of the plea of this Carpe Diem author. With less than two years under her belt as Fox & Friends Weekend co-host, she bade her co-hosts Pete Hegseth and Ed Henry, her crew, and, most importantly, her viewers a fond farewell to reportedly join her good friend Meghan McCain at the table on The View to wage friendly fire with libs Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Yesterday, in the opening segment, Abby exclaimed, “Big news that we will talk about tomorrow! But this is our last weekend together! So, we are going to make the most of this [inaudible].” True to her word, she did just that today. And, it came as no surprise to those who follow cable news (HuffPo link): But, to the viewers who do not, it probably did since Abby sat on the F&FW curvy couch as queen for such a short reign. In the final segment today, F&FW producers gave Abby a fitting farewell tribute (vid via J$P) as they brought in her hubs Jeff and their daughter Isabel Grace to mark this new chapter in her life. The daughter of the current ambassador to Russia and the past ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, Jr., certainly was politically savvy and smart. And, the Utah lovely also had her sexy side–albeit family friendly–a la weekday Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt. She gave her fans a reason to rise in the early morn on the weekend with her cheerful disposition, beauty, and brains.

Gone much too soon, Abby! You will be missed!

 

 

Clayton’s Weird Departure

July 31, 2018

Abby, please don’t go, too! As word spreads that Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman may leave the FNC fold to join her friend Meghan McCain at The View, F&FW fans are welcome to muse about the strange disintegration of a trio of co-hosts that preceded her, i.e., Clayton Morris, Alisyn Camerota, and Dave Briggs. (Yes, the author knows that the lovely now honorary Aussie Anna Kooiman was the lovely F&FW co-anchor that was the bridge between Aly and Abby.)

Of particular interest was Clayton’s bizarre adieu [vid]. Dave left in an emotional farewell in 2012 as the Bean Town sports boy transitioned to NBC Sports (before going to CNN to co-host Early Start with Christine Romans). Alleging legendary FNC honcho Roger Ailes harassed her, lovely Aly left for CNN New Day eventually where she has “woke” according to her book, Amanda Wakes Up. Re Clayton, his departure seemed strange at best: Out of the blue seemingly, he emotionally announced, “I have decided after 18 years in broadcast television – I didn’t think I was going to do this. That today will be my last day in television.” Additionally, he remarked, “”I don’t think you’ll ever see me on television again.”

In an ambiguous assertion, Clayton said that “he would be pursuing a new calling in ’empowering people’ and helping others build wealth through passive income.” Now, Clayton posits, “How to pay off your house within 5 years using these awesome ninja tricks.” Hopefully, it works: But, it sounds as strange as his fascination with UFO’s.

Clayton’s farewell was a bizarre goodbye. Hopefully, Abby will not follow suit. (She’s a keeper–or should be!)

Abby & Pete: Obama Can Run Again! :-)

June 4, 2018

Did Abby Huntsman embarrass her dad? In one of the craziest segments ever, Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Pete Hegseth, and Ed Henry seemed utterly oblivious to the 22nd Amendment. It was utterly insane.

In the opening segment of the third hour, Abby remarked, “There’s a new book [“The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House”] that came out this week, Ben Rhodes who…was on his national security team and he talks about Barack Obama and how he felt about the election and…right after Trump won.” Interjecting, Pete read an excerpt of the book (on screen) which read, “‘What if we were wrong? Maybe we pushed too far,’ Mr. Obama said, ‘Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe. Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early,’ he said.”

Later, Abby remarked, “[Former President Obama]…said ‘[T]en or twenty years too early, that the country wasn’t ready for him. Pete and I were talking about this in the commercial break. He could still run again! Right? Ten years after he left office.” Pete chimed in, “You’re just two consecutive terms: You could take one off and come back.” Abby responded, “He could take on Donald Trump in 2020.” Instinctively, Ed interjected, “Isn’t that something that would be challenged though?”

Wrong, Abby. And, wrong, Pete. And, at least, you had a clue, Ed.

Sad. It was as if none of the three had heard of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which reads, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Such ignorance–in the true sense of the term–makes any informed viewer cringe. Great F&FW team: But, up your game!

[Author’s aside: Had the three been in Russia and talking about Putin they would have been correct.]

 

Things I Shouldn’t Say

March 27, 2018

Aly’s woke wrong, and Ainsley’s Ainsley. In the old days of Fox & Friends, Mancow was mimicking oral sex with E. D. Hill with his second and third fingers in a vee and lapping it up with his tongue with a naughty smile as a blushing E. D. laughed it off. Apparently, they had been lovers–and, viewers were invited to a peep show of sorts of days gone bye.

Now, it’s different. New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota has gone from Roger Ailes smart, sassy, sexy lovely to Jeff Zucker’s snarky, “rolling eye” gal when it comes to her conservative guests. But, sometimes, she’s fair–even though the viewer knows that Zucker is watching and having his way way too often.

As to Fox and Friends co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt, she plays her role a la Abby Huntsman of Fox & Friends Weekend. Both are beautiful, brainy gals bringing it to the center seat on the curvy couch. They are both sexy as all get-out: But, they are also rather religious. So wrap your brain around that–if you can.

As a synopsis, Aly is still sexy but she is Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct: You never know if she’ll kill you with her looks or her CNN ice pick. As to Ainsley (and Abby), they both appear very inviting but one wonders if they really in truly are that sweet.

Abby: Back in the Saddle Again!

March 19, 2018

Huntsman: “This weekend. [Nervous grimace emoji].” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman announced that she would be back on the curvy couch this weekend. After the birth of her beautiful daughter Isabel Grace [photo] in late November, Abby seems somewhat nervous about her return after maternity leave.

When a fan asked today (March 19), “When r u coming back to work? We miss you, she replied, “”This weekend. [Nervous grimace emoji].”

No worries, Abby! Your fans eagerly await your return–or, as Aerosmith, might say “Back in the Saddle Again”! [Vid].

Cuomo Shows His Ass: Avalon Shows His Class

February 8, 2018

“He’s in Wisconsin: You know, he’s not in Louisiana or something like that.” New Day co-host Chris Cuomo showed his elitist ass this morning. Apparently, the liberal Cuomo scion is getting increasingly frustrated that the CNN mantra “Russia, Russia, Russia” is turning out to bite his Democrats in the ever increasing scandal that is embroiling the the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice and now, perhaps, even former President Obama.

In the part of a segment entitled “Sen. [Ron] Johnson Accused of Promoting FBI Text Message ‘Conspiracies,” Chris went ballistic.* After co-host Alisyn Camerota introduced the discussion about the texting between illicit lovers, former F.B.I. Chief of the Counterespionage Section Peter Stzrok and F.B.I. attorney Lisa Page, laughing off Page’s text, saying, “potus [sic] wants to know everything [we’re doing] and that was so scandalous that it got Ron Johnson’s attention because once again it must show the Deep State conspiracy….”

Clearly annoyed, Chris interjected, “Johnson suggested heavily that it was about Obama’s interest in the Clinton email investigation now. Why? This is the second one now, okay? He was with the whole “secret society” b.s.! Now, this Ron Johnson was supposed to be this level-headed businessman. We let him be at the Magic Wall, for god’s sake, to point out how insurance works and what it means. He was supposed to be level-headed.” Ranting further, “But, now, John [Avlon, CNN political analyst], he’s seems to have thrown himself with in with the silliest, most absurd, and embarrassing suggestions.”

Subsequently, CNN Political Analyst John Avlon responded, “When Senators and the President seem to further destroy trust in civic institutions, that is incredibly dangerous for the country and that’s what we’re witnessing here.”

Continuing his rant, Chris exclaimed, “I’m surprised by Ron Johnson, of all people. We used to have him on here: He would be the voice of reason….He’s in Wisconsin: You know, he’s not in Louisiana or something like that!”

Interjecting a voice of reason, Avalon retorted, “Whoa! Wait a minute! What’s wrong with Louisiana?”

Laughing at Chris and his obvious inanity, Aly exclaimed, “Whoa!”

Unrepentant, Chris declared, “But, I’m saying that you have a state like in Louisiana, this kind of talk, that what makes it so hard for Senator Kennedy down there is that there’s more of an appetite for this than there is in Wisconsin.”

Shaking her head is disbelief and looking at Avalon with a smile, Aly pointed to Chris, saying, “He’s doubling down.”

Interjecting, Avalon retorted, “I’m going to defend NOLA [New Orleans, Louisiana] We’re here to defend Louisiana!”

Shaking his head in annoyance, Chris answered, “You’re not even from there!”

As the segment ended, Chris looked at Avalon and remarked derisively, “Cajun over there! An honorary Cajun!”

Chris Cuomo shows his ass: John Avalon shows his class.

Aly’s “FAKE NEWS”: “ChapStick”

January 31, 2018

Rep. Joe Kennedy, III: “Lip gloss.” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota may be “woke” as a liberal since she transitioned from FNC to CNN: But, her bias was showing this morning in her interview of Rep. Joe Kennedy, III.

Warmly welcoming Rep. Kennedy, who gave the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union address and who was mocked for his “drooling” on social media, she smiling said, “Good morning, Congressman!…How are you? How was that experience last night?*

Chuckling, he answered, “It was a lot of fun! I have, um, a lot more caffeine and a lot less lip gloss on.” Proving POTUS right for the moment, Aly replied, “Now, now hold on, Congressman.” Leading the witness to a more masculine answer, Aly queried, “Was it lip gloss? Is that what you’re going with? Or, was it ChapStick?”

Haltingly, Rep. Kennedy responded, “It was, it was. I would go with ChapStick.” More honestly, he added, “So, whatever is was, it was a little too much apparently.”

Sorry, Aly. But, Rep. Kennedy said, “Lip gloss.”

*New Day – 01/31/18 (7:22 a.m. ET).

Chris & Aly Mock POTUS

December 19, 2017

Cuomo: “I hold it like a man–with one hand!” Giving fodder to President Trump in his claim that CNN is fake news, New Day co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota supplied it in droves this morning.* [Vid (“The Right Scoop): Link here.]

Recently, Chris and Aly gave the President grief for drinking a dozen Diet Cokes a day. Today they mocked his manner of drinking water in his national security speech Monday. Chuckling, Aly remarked, “Twitter took note: It has led to comparisons of how the President needs to use two hands, apparently, to drink from a water bottle. He did that drink the speech last month and then again yesterday!” Cradling her small water in her hands in derision,  she added, “But, this was an even smaller glass yesterday where he used two hands.”

Turning to Chris, she laughed, “I believe last time you called it the “baby grip!”

Deriding President Trump further, Chris responded, “Well, that is the sippy cup that you’re using there right now! Grabbing a large empty glass vase, he joked, “I don’t get all the hands thing and the glass.” Putting the empty vessel to his lips and feigning a gulp, he brandished it to the viewer, saying, “You know, I don’t know what it’s all about….This is what I drink out of–I drink out of ’em and I hold it’s like a man–with one hand! But, you know, that’s, that’s me!”

Seeming to reference Senator Marco Rubio’s insulting infamous shot at POTUS, Aly joked, “You just have giant [inaudible]! Sarcastically, Chris said, “I don’t think that’s a judgment. Certainly, not one of our biggest concerns: You know, if you want to a cup with all of your hands that’s what you do!” Going for the derisive denouement, Aly iterated, “It is the sippy cup!”

Sadly, CNN is  a soupcon of a shadow of what it once was–a news work that put on, at the very least, a semblance of objectivity.  Anti-Trumpers and Never-Trumpers were given comfort: And, Trump supporters were reaffirmed in their views of CNN’s overt bias. Sad.

Acerbic McCain Disses Doocy (Peter)

October 18, 2017

Steve sanguine: Ainsley anguished. This Wednesday morn, Fox & Friends fans eagerly awaited co-anchor Steve Doocy‘s reaction to his son, FNC correspondent Peter Doocy, being dissed by a perturbed, irascible, supercilious Senator John McCain after being queried as to whether his relationship with President Trump was frayed to the point that he was not to support anything that the President came to him and asked for.

Introducing the segment regarding the heated exchange between his son and the fiery Senator, Steve said, “John McCain is the man who torpedoed the Affordable Care Act fix in the Senate. So, that’s a good question regarding the relationship with the President. And, a young correspondent I happen to know asked the Senator about it and I don’t think he liked the question.”*

Immediately thereafter, in the vid that ran, Peter asked, “Has your relationship with the President frayed to the point that you are not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?”

Menacingly, McCain acerbically retorted, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb? Huh?…You mean that I’m going somehow to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of a personal disagreement. That’s a dumb question!” Then, he turned and walked away in a huff.

After the clip, Steve declared, “Is it a fair question? Clearly, John McCain has not been a reliable “yes” vote for the Trump train. And, so going forward what’s he going do? As the President said, he would like to have John McCain’s vote but he doesn’t.”

Interjecting, co-host Brian Kilmeade stated, “McCain had a speech after getting a Freedom Award where he was very negative about the President.” Explaining, he mentioned McCain’s allusion to the President’s policies as “half-baked nationalism.”  But, defending McCain, he said, “But, he seemed to, at least, give a vote for the moving forward on the budget resolution, to discuss the budget: That will be later this week.”

In answer, co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt responded, “Well, they’ve been going back and forward, Senator McCain and the President.” Pointing to Steve, Ainsley exclaimed, “And, for him to talk to your son who I feel like is my family, I didn’t like that! But, I understand, I know he’s going through a lot so God bless him: But, I didn’t like that exchange! Looking intently at Steve, a sympathetic Ainsley asked, “How did you feel as his dad?”

Deflecting, Steve answered, “It’s, it’s a good question. And, you know what, it’s the sound bite we ran.”

As Solomon once said, “A soft answer turneth away wrath.” Well played, Steve–and Peter.

Shep Preempts Rick (and F&FW)!

September 10, 2017

Seriously? Preempting FNC’s chief meteorologist Rick Reichmuth (and Fox & Friends Weekend) this Sunday morn mid-show for Shepard Smith seems like one of the stupidest programming decisions that FNC has made. Such disrespect to Rick, the F&FW co-hosts, and their fans is almost unforgivable. Rick and the F&FW crew were doing a much better job than this interloper and his crew are doing. Get a grip, Fox News!

[Update: At least, Rick reappeared on “Shep’s show” at 8:38 a.m. ET.]

 

Aly & Dave Back Together–on CNN!

September 4, 2017

Clayton Out! Alisyn Camerota: “Don’t adjust your TV’s: It’s not 2012. Look who [sic] I’m reunited with, Dave Briggs, my old co-host!”* That is how New Day co-host introduced guest co-host Dave Briggs with whom she formerly co-anchored Fox & Friends on FNC (as Early Start promoted the upcoming New Day Show).

As New Day concluded, Aly turned to Dave, smiling, saying, “Well, Dave, um, it’s.” On cue, Dave turned to Aly, deadpanning, “Before, we go, you know…I’ve read this terrific book: I need to get you to sign my copy.” Beaming and looking at the camera, Aly jested, “What’s it called? You mean “Amanda Wakes Up?”

Beaming at his former Fox News co-anchor, Dave declared, “I’ve read it: I’ve done my homework. I’ve searched for my story in there.” Not so facetiously, she replied, “Oh, you may recognize a few characters in there!” Chuckling, Dave responded, “I recognize a little bit.”

And, fans of Fox & Friends Weekend and Fox News in general may recognize a lot. And, Amanda Wakes Up may tell a lot–about Aly’s transmogrification from her FNC role to her CNN one.

Ironically, on the very day that Aly and Dave reunited on CNN morning TV, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris who was on the same team with Aly and Dave declared his departure from the curvy couch this Labor Day in the penultimate F&F segment and said that he might not ever be on TV again.

Hottie Heather Returns to F&F

Former Fox & Friends newsreader Heather Nauert returns as the new State Department spokesperson. The blonde beauty had the same sexy mien with a short dress and plunging neckline this early morn on the curvy couch as usual: And, she also brought the brains and strength re North Korea, Russia, and Syria with full control of POTUS’ perspective. She was a true Trump representative: Sexy, smart, and strong a la FLOTUS!

Congratulations, Heather, on your job! And, welcome back to F&F!

FBN:AM “Shining” Twin?

August 17, 2017

Riva Gold: Yes, she’s a little scary but, a barrette would make her even more so. Yes, Wall Street Journal markets reporter Riva Gold seems quite competent at what she does in the final segment of FBN:AM: But, truth be told she seems unnerving. The first time the author saw her he thought he was watching a little girl give a grownup report with a sense of Stanley Kubrick lurking in the background filming his sequel to The Shining.

Riva seems rather good at reporting the global market scene: But, she does so in an unnerving fashion–especially, so early in the morn. Riva, please go to a trusted, high-end hair stylist to get a cut that suggests a more welcoming TV personality look. Otherwise, FBN:AM fans will not want to “come play with [you] forever and ever and ever” (vid).

FBN:AM‘s finale? Eyes Wide Shut!
