Alluring Aly’s Anniversary

July 15, 2015

Comely Camerota: “Can’t believe it’s already my one year #CNNannniversary[:] it’s been a terrific first year.” And, it has been–with New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota doing what she does best, resurrecting moribund cable news morning programs (a la her second and third stint at Fox & Friends Weekend). Aly to the rescue: Aly’s cool and Aly’s hot!

When New Day replaced American Morning (soon after Kiran Chetry‘s tearful namaskaar), CNN put beefcake Cuomo scion Chris on to co-anchor the show with tyro Kate Bolduan and sweet third wheel news reader Michaela Pereira. It never quite worked with Chris leading the pack as the alpha male with puppy Kate yapping for his affection and second wife Michaela seeming to just want Big Love or peace, joy, and happiness–not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. When Kate got preggers, the ND viewer could sense that Kate’s tearful goodbye may have been forever (with Zucker itching for a winner in the morn).

Subsequently, Aly began filling in for Kate. Even the casual viewer could sense a whole new dynamic–where the boy was not the boss anymore: The girl was even if she did not necessarily let him know it. Like his Pop or his brother, Chris plays partisan style: And, Aly plays it fair. Poor Michaela seems to opine from the peanut gallery.

With Aly at the helm, it is indeed a New Day at CNN. A good day!

Twilight Zone: Poor Bob Massi

July 10, 2015

“12 p.m.”: Seriously? Yes, seize the day, or Carpe Diem: But, do it right! Yesterday, Fox & Friends promoted their fave Las Vegas lawyer, Bob Massi, and his eponymous show Bob Massi is the Property Man. As the segment ended with the eminently likable lawyer that reminds one of the affable Gerry Spence with his white mane and his silver tongue, the graphics displayed indicated that Massi’s show would be aired on “Saturdays at 12PM ET.”* No, they are not: they are on at 12 noon. If they were at 12PM ET, they would actually be at 12 midnight!

Readers, please forgive the author for expressing this personal peeve. But, it is very irritating to him when such clear terms as p.m. (post meridiem) are simply ignored as if they had no meaning. 12 noon or 12 midnight are proper and should be embraced. “12 a.m.” and 12 p.m.” are almost rendered meaningless because they both are 12 midnight: 12 hours before the middle of the day and 12 hours after the middle of the day.

Sorry, Bob, for FNC’s confusion! I assume you are on at 12 noon ET tomorrow. Break a leg–in a good way! *Fox & Friends – 07/09/15 (@8:28 a.m. ET).

Kilmeade: “I Never Came Home to a Parent!”

June 30, 2015

Brian: “Luckily, I stayed out of trouble!” On Fox & Friends this morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade revealed that he was a “latchkid” as a fatherless teen.

In a segment with Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarznegger, who was promoting his latest cine, Terminator Genisys; two upcoming sequels to Conan and Twins; and “The After School All-Stars” program to help kids with homework, music, arts, etc.), Brian embraced his latter efforts, especially, enthusiastically. Emotionally, he remarked, “For me personally, my mom had to work: My dad passed away when I was in ninth grade. I never came home to a parent.” Poignantly, he explicated, saying, “So, I led soccer…half the year: the other, it was unscripted. Concluding, Brian exclaimed, “Luckily, I stayed out of trouble!”

Brian, your F&F fans are glad you, did! Good work, Arnold. And, Kudos, Mrs. Kilmeade!

*Fox & Friends – 06/30/15 (@ 8:27 a.m. ET).

Ainsley: We’re Having a Baby

June 22, 2015

Earhardt: “I’m five months pregnant now.” Today, Fox & Friends First co-host Ainsley Earhardt announced that she is having a baby!

As F&FF concluded this morning, Ainsley’s co-anchor Heather Childers read emails from fans noting that Ainsley has been posting pics with her scripts covering her tummy and wondering if she were hiding something. Turning to Ainsley with a smile, Heather asked, “So, Ainsley, do you have something to tell us?”

Beaming, Ainsley proudly proclaimed, “I do!” Rubbing her belly with glee, Ainsley announced, “We’ve had an extra little man or a little girl on set with us for the past five months! We’re having a baby! My husband (Will Proctor) and I are having a baby.”

As producers showed a sonogram of Ainsley’s little one in the womb, Heather asked, “And, do you know if it’s a little girl or a little boy?” Pointing to the screen, Ainsley laughed, “In that picture, the sonogram, I said, ‘Look, honey!…Our little girl is praying. And, he said, “No, that’s a boy! Our boy is throwing the football.”

As Heather started to ask her whether she and her hubby were going to find out the gender of the baby, Ainsley replied, “No, we’re not going to find out. We’re gonna wait. It’s going to be a surprise!”

In response, Heather queried, “And, how far along are you?” Ainsley answered, “I’m five months pregnant.” Stroking her stomach, she continued, “And, what has been fun about this is now just the joy for my husband and for me but sharing this with my family and his family….What a joy to give them [Ainsley’s parents] this gift because it’s their first grandchild and my in-laws first grandchild.” Laughing, she added, ” I want a girl so I can have bows in her hair!”

Subsequently, Heather remarked, “You look beautiful! You are glowing like they always say.”

Indeed, Ainsley. Congratulations to you and Will!

Kilmeade’s “Man” Fail

May 26, 2015

Brian: “I kinda of failed at the manhood thing….I’m a man in training.” Indeed! Where was Steve Doocy? In an incredible display of ineptness at basic “masculinity” this morning, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade showed his lack of the basic knowledge of how to change a tire. Hilarious!

In a segment with Derrick Van Orden, the author of Book of Man: A Former Navy Seal’s Guide to the Lost Art of Manhood, Brian and guest co-anchor Scott Brown were given the simple task of changing a tire to prove that they were real men ostensibly for co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. As Scott began to jack up the car, Brian enthusiastically began to take off the lug nuts as if he were in a pit crew for an Indy race. Instead of loosening the lug nuts before Scott raised the car enough to take the tire off, Brian pulled all of them off except one before Scott had jacked the auto up and stabilized it. Suddenly, the car lurched forward and the jack began to fall: As Brian inexplicably tried to remove the tire, which would have resulted in the car hitting the ground unceremoniously and, possibly injuring him and others, the Navy SEAL aptly intervened, saying, “Stop what you’re doing; let it down; the jack has fallen.”

Ever waggish, Brian intoned, “This is why I have a triple “A” (AAA) card!”

Thankfully!

[Author’s aside: Even though the author thinks that characterizing changing a tire as masculine is intrinsically sexist–the author’s sisters may well prefer that their guys do it but they certainly could do it if they so desired–Brian and Scott failed at the “man” test. Obviously, Brian and Scott should have put the car in gear or in park and put the emergency brake on first. Then, Scott should have jacked up the car a bit with the wheel still soundly in touch with the ground; Brian should have loosened the lug nuts; Scott should have jacked the auto up until the tire cleared the ground; Brian should have removed the tire; and then they could have replaced the tire.]

[Author’s aside #2: Fox & Friends posted a vid of Brian and Scott being “men” by tying a tie and tying a knot but they have not posted the one of the epic “man” fail by the guys.]

Camerota Gets Naked– Yet Again!

May 25, 2015

Aly Cat: Rowrr! Today, sexy New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota provided her male admirers with a view that they will relish. A Playboy spread? Not quite. But, she did show some skin–the sight of her naked ring finger this morning.

Lest Aly’s amorous acolytes get too excited, she has gone bare before. After an unexplained two-month absence from her then show Fox & Friends Weekend, she similarly doffed her connubial bling when she appeared as a Fox & Friends Friday guest co-host: Of course, Loverboy was performing “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” that Friday for F&F’s 2011 “All-American Summer” concert series that day and the bohemian hottie was ready to party (vid). A few years later, (01/04/14), Aly was at it again as she flashed her tanned nude marital ring finger to her acolytes when she guest co-anchored America’s News HQ.

Now, Aly has changed networks from the irreverent cable news ratings champ network Fox News to the more staid 24/7 cable news pioneer. Now, her hemline often drops too low and her neckline rises too high. But, she is still giving her fans the finger–not the mean one.

“Naked Aly”: It has a certain seductive ring to it. For her fervent votaries, it resounded all the more today. Rowrr: Aly Cat is back–at least, for today!

 [Author’s aside: Re Aly Cat, “ages ago,” when Aly guest co-hosted a segment with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on F&F about with what animal the co-anchors identified most, Aly purred, “Cat.” (For curious F&F fans, Steve answered, “Unicorn,” and Brian declared, “Lion.”)]

Media Buzz: Haughty Howie

May 17, 2015

Kurtz: “You might even get a response from me.” What a Sunday “beast”: Howie, you’re on Fox News now! Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz sounded today like he is still with the media effete elite.

Closing his show today, Howie promoted his social media site and e-mail address, saying, “That’s it for this edition of Media Buzz: I’m Howard Kurtz. We hope you’ll ‘like’ our Facebook page….Send us an e-mail with a media question, not a political speech: FoxMediaBuzz@foxnews.com, Fox MediaBuzz@foxnews.com.” Raising his eyebrows high with a smile at his lowly FNC audience, he added, “You might even get a response from me.”

From Fox & Friends to “Howie & Haughty”: What a segue! If Howard is lucky, he “might even get a response from me.” I guess he just did!

Howie, you’re on Fox News now: Don’t insult your viewer!

Update: Howie humbler a week later: More respectful of his FNC audience Sunday, Kurtz closed his show, saying, “That’s it for this edition of Media Buzz: I’m Howard Kurtz….Remember that you can always check out our Facebook page….Email us at MediaBuzz@foxnews.com. Questions about the media I will respond online: maybe, even here.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

Kelly Zings Kilmeade

May 14, 2015

Kelly: Well that changes everything…It’s all forgiven! On the Kelly File tonight, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade got his head handed to him on a platter by none other than FNC colleague and no-nonsense anchor Megyn Kelly. In the latest of their engaging segments (on Deflategate this evening), Brian opined about New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady’s contumacious reaction to the NFL’s suspension of him for four games, the self-acknowledged “Deflator,” and Patriot owner Bob Kraft. Even though Brian expressed skepticism about Brady who reportedly failed to turn over his text messages, he seemed to give Kraft a pass–and a sop.

As Megyn grilled Brian about Deflategate, Brian mentioned that the “Deflator” Patriot ball handler was actually indicating that he wanted to lose weight according to the Brady rebuttal. As they both scoffed at the account, Megyn sarcastically responded, “In particular, that works with men. Every man wants to be told that he can deflate.” Before chuckling at her ribald reply, Brian exclaimed, “Right!”

Cutting to the quick, Megyn queried, “So, you don’t feel confident about Brady’s defense?” Brian answered, “No.” Coming to Kraft’s defense immediately and almost instinctively, Brian responded, “But, I will say this. Bob Kraft is the owner of the team, a great guy: He watches the show: He’s a huge fan of yours. And, I feel bad because I don’t want to be Stephanopoulos.”

Derisive of Brian’s attempt to ingratiate her into obeisance, Megyn declared, “Well, that changes everything!…Why didn’t you tell me that? It’s all forgiven! Never mind, they’re being railroaded.”

Unfortunately, as usual, Brian impulsively comes anew to the defense of Kraft, the owner of the Patriots who have been implicated in both Spygate and Deflategate. But, as usual, Megyn brooks no such bias from friend or foe. Megyn Kelly: Kicking butt even if it is F&F‘s Brian Kilmeade!

Kiran’s Heartfelt Plea

April 28, 2015

“They need your help.” Today, Kiran Chetry desperately pleaded for the immediate help of her beloved people, the people of Nepal (the land of her birth).

In a video Kiran posted this afternoon on Twitter, the Nepali beauty reached out to both her CNN and her Fox News fans: Identifying herself as a journalist formerly of the two preeminent cable news channels (American Morning and Fox & Friends Weekend co-host respectively), she implored her Tweeps to come to the aid of her fellow Nepalis, saying, “They need your help….If there’s anything that you can do to help–a donation, no matter how big or small–you would be making a difference between life and death for these people.” Requesting their immediate aid, she added, “Waiting around to figure out the scope and scale of the disaster means lives lost that could have been saved which is why I’m asking you to please donate.”

For those who may have needed guidance as to a worthy charity, Kiran remarked, “Kids of Katmandu has years of experience on the ground in Nepal. They’ve been focusing on the children and working very closely with native Nepalis to insure that every dime you donate is spent in the best way possible to give aid to those who need it and quickly. And now is the time that they need it quickly.”  And, for any hesitant soul, Kiran continued, “Please if you have even a small amount to give, go to KidsofKathmandu.org or the American Red Cross and give anything you can to help the people of Nepal.

Kiran, this author will indeed. And, hopefully all of your other CNN and FNC fans will follow suit. Kudos, Kiran: Thanks for your video–and for letting your Tweeps know how that they can be there for the Nepalese people!

Aly: Too Sexy For New Day?

April 27, 2015

CNN buttons Camerota down–or pins her up! Sexy New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota apparently got a directive from prudish CNN producers this morning: Button your shirt! In the early morn, Aly sported a somewhat plunging neckline which flattered her fab feminine figure: But, the Fox & Friends Weekend former co-anchor also looked somewhat demure in that her decolletage was not accentuated. However, Aly did subscribe to Michelle Obama’s “dare to bare arms” fashion today: And, she looked lovely.

Perhaps, Aly appeared a bit too lovely for the staid CNN crew. In the latter part of the second hour, Aly was all buttoned up–or pinned up. The author could not discern which offending item was used to cloak the bosom of CNN’s newest Aphrodite, Kiran Chetry‘s apt successor.

Zucker, let Aly do her thing. She rules the morning even if the governor’s beefcake brother, Chris Cuomo, thinks he does. Chris may have been deemed Playgirl‘s “Sexiest Men of 1985,”: But, don’t underestimate the Bristol Bay Babe. That New Jersey cheesecake cutie keeps her fans coming back year after year–no matter what news channel she is on.

To paraphrase the Pussycat Dolls [vid], let Aly “loosen up [her] buttons”!

A F&F First: Nudity Allowed

April 25, 2015

“I’m so wasted!” Ainsley Earhardt and Heather Childers naked? For their naturalist viewers, the Fox & Friends First co-hosts made au naturel all natural.

Without warning, blond beauties Ainsley and Heather introduced a NSFW Watter’s World “Political Accomplishment Edition” segment by Jesse Watters to arouse their audience in the early morn to a little porn (April 04/14).* It was Jesse’s usual schtick of embarrassing hapless and clueless hotties and/or eccentrics about current events: This time, he ended his report with an interviewee who said that he was not yet “wasted” and a scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High [NSFW clip (0.17/0.19)] of Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn) who assuredly was. In the naughty vid, Spicoli proclaims, “I’m so wasted!”: On the wall in the background, there are two apparent Playboy pinup lovelies flaunting their full frontal nudity.

As the segment ended, Ainsley exclaims, “Oh, my word! Interesting!” Chuckling, Heather replied, “You never know what you’re going to get!”

Indeed, Ainsley and Heather! Playboy pinups on air? Another Fox & Friends First!

[Author’s aside: “Cleaning out my closet” [vid] as Eminem might say: Sorry, CD readers, that I did not get this F&FF story to you earlier.]

Kilmeade: President’s “Badas* Glasses

April 23, 2015

POTUS: “Climate change can no longer be denied.” While Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade may not necessarily concur with the substance of President Obama’s take on global warming and its purported effect on the Everglades in Florida, he did like his style. After the mid-show began today with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon’s Earth Day jokes, a chuckling Brian remarked, “The President was in the Everglades with some nice…some badas* glasses.” [POTUS’s “badas* glasses pic.] As F&F co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck giggled “ooh” at Brian’s surprising choice of words, co-anchor Steve Doocy arched his eyebrows at Brian, deadpanning, “The President’s glasses?” Smiling, an unrepentant Brian haltingly riposted, “Did you see his glasses? They looked–very good!”

Kilmeade & Friends today? No, just a “badas*” Fox & Friends!

Prann Returns: Still Unlisted!

April 14, 2015

Anna Kooiman: “Welcome back from maternity leave!” Saturday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman so welcomed FNC reporter Elizabeth Prann back to Fox News after her maternity leave. The proud mom said that the baby girl of her and her “crazy hubby” [pic] weighed 20 pounds: When probed further, she “conceded” that her baby weighed only eight pounds at birth.

Yes, the blond-haired beauty is back at FNC: So, why doesn’t Fox News acknowledge her?  Over two years ago, Carpe Diem noted that the flaxen-tressed lovely was not on the Fox News’ “All Anchors & Reporters” list: Today, she is still not on that list.

Strange. Maybe,  Elizabeth’s former boss, Greta van Susteren, will go to bat for her. Or, at least, her hubby Baltimore Oriole pitcher Darren O’Day should call foul!

[Author’s aside: For an archival post that lists Elizabeth as a “Washington-based correspondent for Fox News Channel (FNC), link here.]

Elisabeth’s Freudian Slip: Waterboarding?

April 9, 2015

Hasselbeck’s strange formula for Boston Marathon murderer: It is yet to be determined whether Dzhokhar [Tsarvaev] deserves to breathe another two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen.” Today, Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck seemed to have a Freudian slip while berating Rolling Stone for its failure to update its readers on the fate of their former cover boy, now convicted Boston Marathon murderer Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

During a segment subtitled, “Rolling Stone Silence: Web Coverage of Tsarvaev Verdict Missing,” Elisabeth’s F&F co-anchor Brian Kilmeade incredulously proclaimed, “Well they [Rolling Stone] have a stripe there just for breaking news: I don’t care what it is, where it is; It’s a “Breaking News” stripe. It never made the “Breaking News” stripe!”*

Agitated, Elisabeth exclaimed, “No, they have not updated as of yet: We’ve been checking throughout the night and this morning. Still no update on that story and whether Dzhokhar deserves to breathe another two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen! It is yet to be determined by the journey, jury.”

Elisabeth, there is no option to waterboard a terrorist under the current President. And, even if there were one, Dzhokhar needs no “enhanced interrogation”: He has been convicted.

No worries, Elisabeth: You can now take that deep breath–of oxygen.

*Fox & Friends – 04/09/15 (@ 8:33 a.m. ET)

[Author’s aside: For that errant truant who skipped chemistry class, the formula of water is H20.]

Aly’s “Apology”: Why I Left Fox News

April 1, 2015

Camerota: “I left Fox for more opportunity.” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota so answered her fervid fans “MOST burning question” yesterday, i.e., “Why did you leave Fox?” [Vid.] She disclosed, “[It is] the question that I get every day.” Elaborating, she continued, “Some people say, ‘When are you coming back?’ And, some people say, ‘How dare you!’ And, some people say, ‘How could you have gone to the dark side of CNN?’ And, some people say, ‘I thought you were fair and balanced!” Smiling, Aly declared, “I’m happy to have an opportunity to address all this.”

In explanation, Aly revealed, “I left Fox for more opportunity, and CNN has exceeded all of my wildest dreams on that front. I didn’t know that I would have all of this opportunity when I came to CNN. I’m so grateful for it: In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.”

Contrasting her new experiences at CNN with her time at FNC, she said, “I have had exclusive interviews; I have hosted documentaries; I’ve anchored prime time specials; I’ve been on every show across CNN’s entire platform; [and] I got a job as the morning anchor on New Day which is a dream job–a long held dream job of mine.” Summing it up, she said, “I have had so many golden opportunities: And, I’m really, really happy!”

Addressing her forlorn Fox fans, she said, “And, I know that you all say that you can’t possibly be happy: I think this is possibly the happiest moment of my career, my long career. And the funny thing is that I’ve loved all of my jobs: I’ve had great jobs! I loved my time at Fox….But, this is my favorite career opportunity.”

Softening the blow further to her FNC devotees, Aly cooed, “When people say, ‘I hope you’re doing okay,’ I am doing okay. And, when they say, ‘When are you going to leave and go back?,’ I don’t think that’s in the cards, at least, not as long as CNN will have me. So, I hope that somehow you can dig deep and be happy for me and even occasionally check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN.”

Well done, Aly. You may have new appreciative acolytes on New Day: But, you have not forgotten your faithful fans at Fox & Friends weekend either. And, the author’s bet is that they will find it difficult to “dig deep and be [truly] happy” for you: But, they will doubtlessly “even check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN” for their beloved Aly.

[Author’s aside: In the author’s opinion, Aly said it all, supra, when she said, “In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.” Too bad. A la her former F&FW co-host Kiran Chetry, she deserved a center seat on the F&F weekday curvy couch and she did not get it. The losers? F&F fans.]

F&F’s Faux Pas: New “Popped Culture”

March 30, 2015

Elisabeth: “We’re going to take a look at the lighter side of celebrity news and our first story is an update on actor Harrison Ford’s condition.” Yes, Fox & Friends’ co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck so introduced FNC marketing veep Michael Tammero‘s brand new segment “Popped Culture” this morning.* Sorry, Calista!

In response to Elisabeth’s strange segue, Michael intoned, “Three weeks after crashing his plane into a California golf course, Harrison Ford is out of the hospital: The seventy-two-year-old actor reported spotted driving in Los Angeles. Ford not in the clear just yet: The crash left him with serious head wounds as well as a broken ankle and pelvis which he will likely need therapy for.”

Apparently, Ford’s wife Calista Flockhart did not see her hubby’s accident as “the lighter side of celebrity news”: Purportedly, she has forbidden him to fly his own plane again. If the reader views this graphic photo of Ford after his accident (via PerezHilton.com), s/he may agree with the former FOX femme fatale Ally McBeal.

“Popped Culture”: A recovering broken cinematic icon “the lighter side of celebrity news”? Not quite, Elisabeth!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, F&F‘s copy editor was on spring break in Panama City with Ainsley Earhardt and the rest of Hannity‘s wayward crew (“Spring break 2015 exposed in Panama City Beach” vid): Tammero’s next story on the birth of Carrie Underwood‘s baby had a picture of her newborn subtitled, “Bundle of Joy: Carried (sic) Unerwood (sic) Shares First Pic of Baby.”]

Sen. Scott Brown: “Mr. Vice President…Get Your Hands Off My Wife!”

March 23, 2015

Guest Fox & Friends Weekend co-host: “He just had his hand on her back and it just kept going lower and lower.” Last Saturday, guest F&FW co-anchor and former U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) regaled viewers with a personal anecdote about the roving hand of the amiable Vice President of the United States–on his wife.

At the bottom of the second hour, F&FW returned after a commercial break with a joke by Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon about the President and the Vice President. Segueing from that jest, F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson remarked, “But, speaking of our unusually effervescent Vice President, Scott Brown, you know him: You kind of had an amazing experience with the Vice President.”

As Tucker and F&FW co-host Anna Kooiman gleefully turned to him for his story, Scott nodded, saying, “Yeah, I actually like the Vice President: He does have a good sense of humor.” Sighing, he continued, “But, yeah, we, you know, we have had many encounters with the [Vice] President and referenced one yesterday on O’Reilly where…the [Vice] President, when I was getting sworn in, had his hands where I didn’t think was inappropriate.” Subsequently, producers aired a clip of a portion of his swearing in ceremony: Elaborating, Scott revealed, “I said, ‘Mr. Vice President–I said it to his Secret Service–I don’t care if you’re the Vice President or not, get your hands off my wife!”

Chiming in sympathetically, Ann said, “So, you’re being sworn in…and the Vice President is not touching your wife the way that you wanted him to.”

In response, Scott stammered, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Listen, we, we all have a sense of humor. And, at the end, my wife’s like, ‘Is this how things are supposed to be in Washington?'”

Demanding more details, Tucker queried, “So, what did he do?”

In answer, Scott replied, “Ah, listen, he just had his hand on her back and it kept going lower and lower. And, you know, it is what it is.”

Tucker exclaimed, “Well, that’s unbelievable!”

Coming to the Vice President’s defense somewhat, Scott declared, “Listen, he’s a very, very touchy-feelly guy: He’ll come up to you and he’ll give you a hug, guy or girl. So, I don’t want to make it seem like it was…completely inappropriate [but] it did, I felt, crossed the line a little bit.” Giving the Veep a bit of a break, he concluded, “It’s just Joe being Joe…so I don’t hold it again him.”

F&FW Oops! TEEN Alcohol Safety

March 14, 2015

FNC “Medical A Team” doc: “We want teenagers to be careful about mixing this stuff (Palcohol) with…other alcohols.” Oops! FNC Medical A Team’s Dr. David Samadi made a Biden-like Washington gaffe this morning on Fox & Friends Week in his interview with co-hosts Anna Kooiman and Clayton Morris and guest co-anchor Peter Doocy: He told the truth. To make matters worse, he told the truth about teens and alcohol and most Americans’ real attitude about the mix thereof.

In his F&FW segment on Palchohol, a powdered alcohol that can be concocted to turn water into a variety of potent potations, Dr. Samadi remarked that Palchohol could “be abused by teenagers”: that it could be easily concealed, and that it could be carried to bars and nightclubs.* He explicated, “My concern is that some of these powdered ingredients could be very, very powerful. So, as we’ve seen with powdered caffeine that were like twenty times more potent than a regular cup of coffee, this could also be extremely dangerous….Now, if it really is that powerful, it can affect your liver [and] it can effect your pancreas, and the last thing you need is for teenagers to get into this kind of trouble…[which]…could be irreversible.”

As a cautionary conclusion, Dr. Samadi declared, “We want teenagers to be careful about mixing this stuff [Palcohol] with other kind of caffeine and [with] other alcohols.”

Oops! Dr. Samadi told the truth: Most Americans know that many teens will drink, and they hope they do it safely–even if they should not be drinking at all.

Clayton Fails History–Again!

March 5, 2015

Cane him! Morris maligns Democratic president anew. Forgetful Fox & Friends guest co-host Clayton Morris still can not get his history straight when it comes to the seventh President of the United States, Andrew Jackson. Over six years ago, self-proclaimed history buff Clayton accused “Old Hickory” of caning someone in the Senate: Today, he maligned President Jackson once again, saying, that he was called “‘Old Hickory’ [be]cause he went into the Senate floor with the cane” (and feigned to swish an imaginary cane as if he were whipping a hapless lad).*

Once again, Carpe Diem must defend one of America’s few democratic [little “d”] Presidents from Clayton’s “history lessons.” President Jackson got his nickname “‘Old Hickory’ because [his soldiers] said he was strong and straight as a hickory tree,” not because he beat some legislator senseless: Rather, it was South Carolina Congressman Preston Brooks who caned Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner with the cane of which Clayton spoke. Six years ago, it was during a “Bad Hair Club for Men” segment that Clayton make his spurious assertion: today, it was during a segment on the twenty dollar bill (citing Jackson’s “beautiful head of hair”).

N.B.: As George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Unfortunately, Clayton did not remember today: And, so, he was so condemned to repeat his own history. Cane Clayton? Perhaps, if he does it again!

Step it up, Clayton!

Anna Admits: He Put a Ring on It!

February 7, 2015

Kooiman: “My partner in crime forever!” This afternoon, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman confirmed her co-host Tucker Carlson‘s revelation early this morning: With a pic of herself  (with a ring on it!) and her beloved in Oz, she Tweeted, “We’re engaged! My favorite person on the planet popped the question watching the sunrise over the Sydney Harbor! Yay!”

Prominently sporting her connubial bling, Anna posted another photo of herself kissing her lover in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House, Tweeting, “Engaged! Can’t wait for this fun spirited witty benevolent intelligent amazing man to be my partner in crime forever!”

For good measure, Anna Tweeted yet another pic of herself, her lucky lad, and–yes–her marital rock, saying, “Celebrating our engagement with family and friends! Bling bling! Best. Birthday. Present. Ever!”

Oddly, Anna did not reveal who her lucky lad is. After Tucker’s premature disclosure this morning, the author assumes she is hoping to share, at least, that one “secret” with her Fox & Friends Weekend fans upon her return.

Well played, Anna!

[Author’s aside: Anna’s man? Probably, Mark!]

Update: On Sunday morning, F&FW producers revealed in a “Shot of the Day” aptly initially subtitled “He Put a Ring on It!” that Anna’s fiance is an Aussie named Tim. Sorry, Mark! F&FW – 02/08/15 (@ 8:32 a.m. ET).
