Huddy Debuts Timidly

July 15, 2010

Bill O’Reilly: “You feel free to disagree with me. I won’t be mean. I promise you.” Fox News correspondent Juliet Huddy made a timid debut in her new segment, “Did You See That” on the O’Reilly Factor.* Unfortunately, Juliet’s weekly topic was politics, not exactly her forte a la Charles Krauthammer, Laura Ingraham, or Alan Colmes. However, she knew the facts but when it came to opining, she fell short.

Whenever host O’Reilly would voice skepticism during her discussion of TX Dem Congressman Ciro Rodriguez (D-TX) or NV GOP Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle, Juliet would seem to waver. For example, when Juliet indicated that she did not think that Rep. Rodriguez had acted like a statesmen in his outburst toward constituents, O’Reilly said that he admired Rodriguez more and Juliet quickly confessed that she, too, liked passion. Subsequently, when Juliet began to criticize Ms. Angle’s anti-Harry Reid commercial and O’Reilly replied, “I don’t think so: I think this is a homerun, Juliet backtracked, saying, I think it’s a homerun: I think Harry Reid is shuddering right now.” Seeming to sense somewhat too much obsequiousness from Juliet, even for himself, O’Reilly kiddingly responded, “You feel free to disagree with me. I won’t be mean. I promise you.”

For her virgin appearance in “Did You See That,” Juliet still did reasonably well with her fresh, fun flair. Yet, she seemed to have crammed for the subjects and to have not fully digested the material. For future “Did You See That” segments, perhaps, Juliet, O’Reilly, and the audience would be better served with a lighter fare more a propos to FNC shows like Fox & Friends and Red Eye. (As to F&F, while the various co-hosts do discuss heavier topics, they generally do so as a group generally, not as sole authorities.)

For now a tepid, but hopeful “thumbs up” for Juliet in her new O’Reilly role.

S.E.’s Cupps Overflow

March 23, 2010

Apparently, Vice President Joe Biden’s wit and wisdom were not the only things on display at the Radio-Television Correspondents Dinner last week. According to sexy conservative commentator and author S.E. Cupps, she gave “America’s most influential columnist” Charles Krauthammer an inadvertent peek at her cups.  When Andy Levy asked S.E. about a fetching photo of her in front of a Fox News banner, she answered, “That’s from the correspondents’ dinner…last week where Biden spoke.”* Then, she provocatively revealed, “The thing you learn about strapless dresses is you will spend the entire evening trying not to flash Charles Krauthammer–which I did.”

Now, that’s a news flash!

O’Reilly: New Krauthammer Segment?

January 27, 2010

Last night Fox News host, Bill O’Reilly, announced a probable new O’Reilly Factor segment with Charles Krauthammer, a Pulitzer-winning conservative syndicated columnist and regular panelist on FNC’s Special Report. As he introduced Krauthammer in a segment entitled, “Inside Story,” O’Reilly stated, “Tell us what’s really going on inside the Obama administration right now….The concept of this, and we’re hoping to make it a regular segment with you, is that you find something that the folks may not know.” Given the chance, there is little doubt that “America’s most influential commentator” (according to the Financial Times in 2006) will indeed do so if given the chance.
