Daddy Adam Housley: “Here He Is!”

November 14, 2012

“Pictures will be coming soon.” FNC correspondent Adam Housely and his wife, Style Network’s Tia & Tamera co-star Tamera Mowry-Housely, welcomed their tardy baby boy Aden John Tanner into their lives Monday night. Exactly two weeks “late,” Aden weighed in at 9 lbs. 5 oz. and measured 21 inches long. Announcing his son’s birth Tuesday, Adam Tweeted, “Aden John Tanner & @tameramowrytwo are doing great! So amazing and so blessed!” Providing a link with the barest of baby basics, Adam proclaimed, “Here he is!” But, no baby pic.

Chiming in sweetly, Tamera Tweeted, “@AdamHousely and I are beyond so n luv with our son.” To, she gushed, “Adam and I feel very blessed to finally be holding our son. He is a beautiful miracle, and our hearts are overflowing with love.” Still, no baby pic.

In a personal missive to Tamera’s fans, Adam promised, “Of course, pictures will be coming soon.” Quoting her, he added, “Can’t wait to share him with you guys.”

Congratulations, Adam and Tamera! And, share the baby photos soon!

School Bus Violence: MacCallum Cheers?

February 23, 2010

Student fighting: rah, rah, Martha? Today America’s Newsroom co-anchor Martha MacCallum dubiously introduced a story by FNC correspondent Adam Housley about the merits of a Wi-Fi equipped Vail, Arizona, public school bus. After Adam praised the success of the program in not only quieting the horseplay of the students but also in facilitating their doing homework on their laptops, Martha remained unconvinced.

Martha opined, “I bet the kids do like it….[But] socialization is just non-existent now. They communicate with each [sic] other all the time by Internet. So, here’s one opportunity where they’re actually on the bus: they can talk to each other, they can get to know each other, they can, you know, have a fight once in a while [and] have some physical interaction with each other. And, now they’re not going to have it there either.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

Perhaps, Martha had just read an almost two-week-old report by the New York Times on this very topic and decided to offer an ill-conceived opposing view. Martha appeared to hearken back to the apocryphal Rockwellian days of noisy school bus rides where the worst offenses were committed by ear-thumping upper classmen or body-pummelling classmates who were trying to impress the pretty school girls. Today, when a simple “dis” may incite the pulling of a knife, revolver, or worse, Martha (or, in fact, anyone) should be loath to condone school violence of any sort (whether “benign” or not).

G.I.’s: “Pigs” in Afghanistan?

September 25, 2009

A sports story gone awry? Today Adam Housely, FNC’s Live Desk co-anchor, seemed to inadvertently tell his audience that American soldiers who stayed in Afghanistan were like pigs–not exactly a compliment in the Muslim. Hopefully, that was not quite the point that he intended to make.

In his seemingly stay-the-course segment on America’s future role in Afghanistan, Adam appeared to reach back to an old coach’s pep talk in his minor league days as an Expo or a Tiger. As he interviewed Jim Phillips, a Heritage Foundation Middle East fellow, about his advice on U.S. involvement, he asked, “Remember the old analogy of the bacon-and-egg breakfast where the chicken…is involved and the pig is committed? Is it time now that we commit fully or pull out fully?”

Perhaps, the author has considered Adam’s analogue a bit too much. Nevertheless, if one were to carry Adam’s argument to its logical conclusion, American G.I.’s there now or new ones in the future would be disdained as unworthy by the largely Muslim population. Or from an American perspective, they would be sacrificing their lives for another’s selfish enjoyment.

Adam, strike one!

Adam’s Fall

February 18, 2009

After taking a high-tech lie detector test on the Live Desk, FNC correspondent Adam Housley may be in big trouble with his long-time girlfriend. At the close of his report on a new truth detector with a supposed accuracy of @95%, Adam welcomed questions to test him from co-hosts Patti Ann Brown and Trace Gallagher.

Patti Ann asked, “How many personal calls do you make on your work cell phone?” Falteringly, Adam responded, “I don’t make very many” and the machine registered, “False statement.”Adam said, “That wasn’t fair: You’re going to get me in trouble.

Then a more devious Trace queried, “I want to know when you are going to marry that girl you’ve been dating for like eleven years.” (A smiling, yet sympathetic Patti Ann turned to Trace and hit him on the arm with the back of her hand.) Abashedly, Adam asked, “Do I have to answer that one?” Trace retorted, “Just answer: say something. I think she’s watching.”

Reluctantly, Adam replied, “Hopefully, soon” and the lie detector flashed “False statement” again and then “Subject is not sure.” Patti Ann gasped, “Oh, no!” and Trace laughed, “So sorry!” A ruby-red, sheepish Adam declared, “Gallagher, I’m coming to live with you….You put me on the spot….You’re in big trouble with me.”

After that fall, Adam will be working by the “sweat of his brow” to make up with his Eve.
