Anna On Honeymoon: “Very Salacious” Huddy Back!

September 19, 2015

Kooiman: “I’m going out with a bang!” And, Juliet is BACK with her own bang! Tuesday, Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Anna Kooiman revealed, “I leave for my honeymoon today! I’m going out with a bang!”* When co-host Steve Doocy queried where she would go, Anna exclaimed, “Italy and Austria!” And, in her place on the curvy couch today sat former F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy.

Even though it has been approximately a year and a half since Juliet graced the curvy couch, she seemed somewhat back in her element–even though Juliet awkwardly defended her friend View co-host Michelle Collins repeatedly for her snarky remark directed at Miss America contestant, Kelly Johnson (Miss Colorado), for her talent competition as to her life-saving work as an RN. Not to mention Collins reportedly impugning nurses reportedly saying, “Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.”

To boot, Juliet let the guys and gals know that she was still her own licentious self even if she were dressed this morn more like a school marm than an FNC fox. In a “7 Things Every Man Should Know,” co-host Tucker Carlson read, “You [men] are more difficult to live with than you think you are.”** In response, Juliet declared, “It’s accurate: Yes, definitely! That’s why I think people should live with each other before they get married: But, that’s just my very salacious personality.” Pointedly, co-anchor Tucker Carlson replied to the thrice-married cougar, “And, studies yet do show that people who live together before they get married have a higher divorce rate”: As co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris grinned, Juliet laughed, “Which makes a lot of sense!”

Youthful hottie Anna is gone for now: And, the F&FW boys get a blast from the past.

Kilmeade’s “Naked” Misogyny?

September 14, 2015

Sarcastic Brian: “What a shame!” For the “painted [topless] ladies” who feel less safe in Times Square (re a recent attack on the street performers), Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade seems to think that they are asking for it. It was not Kilmeade’s finest hour this morning: And, he should apologize to the topless-body-paint gals who are trying to make a living lawfully–and to all the other women who value their equal rights.

Sounding like a troglodyte, usually au courant Brian opined in a jarringly offensive fashion re women who believe in exercising their legally recognized equal rights by “baring their breasts as men are routinely permitted to do” (according to a 1992 New York Court of Appeals Court decision, People v. Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss). Introducing an upcoming story, his co-host Steve Doocy declared, “The painted ladies of Times Square are seeing red, why they say [that] they feel less safe when they are naked in Times Square.” Unsympathetically and chauvinistically, at best, Brian sarcastically responded, “What a shame!”

“What a shame indeed!,” Brian! The apparently practical endorsement of the reported attack on Amanda Roman, a “desnuda” of Times Square, was unseemly and unwarranted. In the author’s opinion, you should apologize to her and to all of the “painted ladies” who are simply exercising their equal rights to earn a living a la the “Naked Cowboy” in Times Square. After all, it is 2015!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, Kelly File host Megyn Kelly will grill her colleague F&F co-host Brian Kilmeade in his next regular segment with him as she did “The Donald”–or, maybe, not.]

F&FW: Losing Their Religion?

September 6, 2015

“Go Blue”: But no “tipsforJesus”! This morning, Fox & Friends Weekends seemed to snub Jesus, or, perhaps, His followers who wanted to help a harried waitress. Crazy, crazy!

In a “News by the Numbers” segment, F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman, a self-professed Christian, proclaimed, “Three thousand dollars, that’s how much a Salt Lake waitress was tipped despite the Michigan loss. It didn’t stop [the collegiate football] fans from feeling generous, adding a hashtag “goblue” on the side of that receipt.”* Even though the a shot of the receipt had “@TIPSFORJESUS” next to the gratuity for $3000.00 and the next frame of the waitress gratefully displaying the tab on the “tipsforjesus” Twitter account, Anna said nary a word about “tipsforJesus,” an individual or group who apparently want to bless others who need a helping hand.

“Go Blue”? Speak of burying the lede, F&FW, “tipsforJesus” deserves, at least, a hat tip!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 09/06/15 (@ 7:24 a.m. ET).

Update: Happily, co-host Carlson Tucker did finally give an “h/t” to “TIPSFORJESUS” in a “News by the Numbers” toward the end of show by mentioning the name of “the group” (but the meme remained that it was some generous Michigan “Go Blue” fans). F&FW – 09/06/15 (@ 9:49 a.m. ET).

“Clueless Clayton” Gets Mad!

September 6, 2015

Still no theologian. Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris got into his usual huff after being critiqued critically. Actually, the thin-skinned chap got even more irate this morning: The silly boy blocked the author from following his Twitter feed after the Carpe Diem article this morning entitled, “Clueless Clayton: Putative Theologian!

Poor Clayton: Unfortunately for him, the author actually listens to him. Yesterday, Clayton erroneously declared, “In the Bible…it explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced.'” He was obviously winging it, and the author called him on it, pointing out that the Scriptural reference (Deuteronomy 22:22) pertained to an adulterer and an adulteress.

Re Clayton’s peevish response to the author’s article: No worries, anything that the author really cares about is what he says on Fox & Friends Weekend. As to his cyber world advice, FNC’s “Kurt the CyberGuy” will do just fine. Or even better.

Clayton, man up! See you tomorrow, I assume, on F&F.

FNC: Fairly Unbalanced?

August 25, 2015

Megyn vs. The Donald: There’s no such thing as bad publicity. If one truly believes that gals and guys are equal, they have to embrace the warrior women a la the Army Ranger School graduates: Ergo, when Kelly Files anchor Megyn Kelly takes on Donald Trump she should be prepared for war.

As Carpe Diem readers know, the author is a true fan of Megyn Kelly: Also, the author is an admirer of Trump since reading his book “Trump: The Art of the Deal.” The author finds it amusing that FNC’s CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes would be calling for The Donald to issue an apology for “an unprovoked attack” calling Megyn a “bimbo.”

Megyn is a “big girl” now. She does not need any white knight to save her: She is no damsel in distress. And, every FNC Twitterer that whines about how Trump is treating their nighttime queen makes Megyn look weak and feeble. Their “noble efforts” simply say she is not tough enough for the real world of politics: I.e., our queen can not go to battle or to war against the big boys.

Megyn can fight. And, so can “The Donald.” Let them fight: And, let them both get better ratings!

F&F: The Real Duck Dynasty

August 25, 2015

Willie Robertson: “Bruce, do you think that they can kiss each other?* Yes, it is a little strange that the national media is focused on the author’s neck of the woods, But, it is good since it shows that this area of the country is not the stereotypical “redneck” area that the Manhattan elites too oft mock. And, even if they still snark at the beautiful wedding of Mary Kate and John Luke, they can go to Hades.

This morning, Fox & Friends featured the lovely Sadie Robertson, a finalist on “Dancing with the Stars” and the author of “Live Original: How the Duck Commander Team Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.” It was a scintillating segment celebrating not only Sadie’s new book but also the wedding of Willie Robertson’s son, John Luke, and his beautiful bride Mary Kate MacEacharn.

To the author, it seemed strange: A very special family that he has known for years, the McEacharns, were thrust into the national spotlight. But, it also seemed right because the McEacharns and the Robertsons share the same values of faith, family, and country. Best wishes, Bonnie Kate, and congratulations, John Luke! And much love to you all!

Anna: The “R” Word

August 24, 2015

Kooiman: “I don’t want to say it on air: You know what ‘r’ word I’m talking about!” Saturday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Anna Kooiman schooled her co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris on sensitivity.

In a “P.C.” segment on the USDA proposing to drop the term “midget” from its regulations re raisins in response to a petition from “The Little People of America” who deemed it offensive, Clayton and Tucker ridiculed the move.* Clayton scoffed that the proposal was a waste of taxpayer’s dollars. Acerbically chiming in, Tucker derisively remarked, “This is what mass hysteria looks like. When you read the accounts of the cultural revolution in China where everyone with eye glasses was banished to a collective farm, you think how could people have been that insane: Where there no adults present? That’s exactly the moment we’re living through now where the government is waging war on language because ‘midget’ is offensive. Like this is crazy!”

Subsequently, the co-hosts seemed to bash the very concept that the term may be offensive to little people as patently political poppycock. Seemingly coming to her senses suddenly, Anna declared, “Well, you know what, it wasn’t that long ago, to play devil’s advocate, it wasn’t that along ago that the ‘r’ word was something everybody used, and it didn’t seem like that big of a deal.”

Furrowing his brow, Tucker queried, “What’s the ‘r’ word?” Facetiously, Clayton deadpanned, “Raisin?”

Aptly, Anna answered, “No, I don’t want to say it on air. You know what ‘r’ word I’m talking about!”

Yes, Anna, F&FW fans know exactly what the “r” word is. And, they also know what the “i” word was. Now, it’s time to affirm the small people, the mentally challenged, the bedridden, and all who may have otherwise been deemed to have less worth than any “normal person” by an unenlightened society: we do well to remember that we are all created in God’s image.

New Day: No “Good Stuff?”

August 19, 2015

No worries, ND fans: Aly is still there! However, New Day oddly deleted it’s de rigeur “Good Stuff” segment this morning at the end of the show. Stranger yet, there was no personal segue to Carol Costello. Rather, in a solo shot, co-host Chris Cuomo alerted the voters in the final segment that “the news continues with Carol Costello right after this break.” At least, then his sexy co-anchor Alisyn Camerota put her hand next to his face and waved goodbye to her fans–even though her lovely visage did not grace the screen.

New Day, if you want to be “Headline News,” that is one thing. But, if you ever expect to catch Fox & Friends you have to up your game!

F&FW Censors Sharon Stone!

August 15, 2015

F&F Weekday: Sharon clad & Sharon naked! Saturday, Fox & Friends Weekend producers transmogrified into risible prudish prigs when they censored sexy siren Sharon Stone’s sensual shot featured on the front of the New York Post. Even though the Basic Instinct star had all of her “naughty bits” or “lady bits” covered, F&FW censored everything from her shoulders to her mid-thighs to keep the “p.c. police” away.*

Friday, F&F producers similarly clad the nude Venus the first time that they aired her NYP photo. However, they came to their senses the second time, deciding that the empress needed no clothes nor censorship. And that was during the weekday!

F&FW censoring the NYP front page! Seriously? Ha!

[Author’s aside: For the censored F&FW pic, link here.]

Kiran: Nepal’s Beauty (& Host)

August 2, 2015

“Hosting Miss Nepal US pageant.” Whilom CNN and FNC anchor Nepali lovely Kiran Chetry exudes feminine pulchritude: So, who better to celebrate such beauty than she in the 2015 Miss Nepal U.S. Pageant? No one!

Displaying her gorgeous gams in a sexy short exotic dress, Kiran announced her return to the beauty contest. The Nepali lovely Tweeted, “[H]osting Miss Nepal US pageant. This is dedicated to “rebuilding Nepal” after earthquake.”

And, Kiran is not kidding. “Rebuilding Nepal” is a cause close to the heart of the Kathmandu-born beauty. In April, she made a special plea to her fans to come to the aid of the Nepalese people. Specifically, she requested that they give to “Kids of Katmandu or the American Red Cross.”

Kudos, Kiran!

[Author’s aside: The author followed Kiran’s suggestion re “Kids of Katmandu”: And, he is glad that he did. Of course, the Red Cross is a wonderful option, too.]

Anna: “I’m a Married Woman!”

August 1, 2015

The lucky guy? Tim Stuckey. Sorry, fellows, sexy Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman has tied the knot! No worries: you can still check the blond beauty out each Saturday and Sunday in the early morn but you can’t touch–too much!

Last night, Anna and Tim said, “I do” and the conjugal tango between the two lovers began. Fox & Friends First co-host Heather Childers shared a pic of the joyful duo, Tweeting, “The happy couple! Mr. & Mrs. Stuckey!” For good measure, Heather added a fab vid of the lovers celebrating their new life together as newlyweds with that special “first dance.” To boot, Heather’s F&FF co-host Ainsley Earhardt Tweeted a few fun wedding pics. Happily, the gorgeous bride added her own sweet shots for her fans.

Congratulations, Anna and Tim!

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).

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!

Perino Goes Pe-loco?

June 18, 2015

Dana accuses her Five co-host Eric Bolling of shady ethics? In a made-for-TV moment yesterday, FNC Five co-host Dana Perino became unhinged as she attacked her co-host Eric Bolling over his defense of the latest entrant to the GOP presidential race, Donald Trump. The caustic exchange left Dana glowering into the camera and a non-too-amused Eric shaking his head at her.

Dana, W’s self-professed number one fan, may just have to recuse herself from the Five for the duration of the election if she is not too careful. The former White House press secretary of President George W. Bush, apparently, can not brook the thought of any unconventional Republican standing in the way of W’s little brother Jeb!‘s ascension to the throne. Approximately, two weeks ago, she was proclaiming that Jeb! basher Senator Rand Paul had “jumped the shark” and appeared gleeful to shiv this libertarian rival on the O’Reilly Factor: Today, she was happy to wield the mace to go at Eric and, by extension, Jeb!’s lastest critic, The Donald.

Actually, it was humorous in a schadenfreude fashion. In the “A block” yesterday [FNC vid], Dana seemed genuinely outraged that co-anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle and Eric would take the flamboyant billionaire seriously, especially, as to his saying he would build a southern border wall and make Mexico pay it.

In her “A block” segment, Kimberly said that Trump was adopting the “Walmart/Kmart approach” by getting the U.S. to “charge everybody for everything” to “make a profit in America”: Chiming in, Eric endorsed The Donald’s take on getting tough on Mexico (among other countries) and said that he was making the other candidates think. In response, Dana was aghast: Haltingly, she sputtered, “I don’t know what to say.”

Derisively, Dana remarked, “I understand…[that]…it feels good to hear that a President of the United States is going to bring back all of our jobs from China and Japan [but] it is so divorced from reality. As Eric turned toward her, she seemingly took a shot at him, saying, “I think you got to take this more seriously: At least, I do! And, I, I’m surprised at some of the people who actually think that some of this would work, especially, given that their other positions are that, for example, executive actions are not something that we should have; we should not have an imperial Presidency.”

Subsequently, co-hosts Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams gave their takes, respectively, reducing Trump to an exemplar of hubris and showmanship. When Eric came to Trump’s defense, Juan rejoined, “If you’re a serious Republican, do you think that you are helped with him by having him on the same stage with you?” Eric exclaimed, “Yes! No, no: I don’t think you’re helped personally but I think the America people are helped because now they have to address some of the things that Donald Trump addresses that these guys [other candidates] don’t want to talk about.”

Jumping in, Dana scornfully asked, “[D]o you actually think that…the moderator [in a GOP debate] should say, ‘Mr. Rubio, Trump says that he is going to bring back all of the jobs from China: How do you respond?’ And, like all of the candidates are supposed to respond to that!” Then she snarked, “How actually is Donald Trump’s [sic] going to bring all of the jobs from China!”

Subsequently, turning to Eric, Dana acerbically queried, “How would you answer…’how you would bring all the jobs back from China?'” Eric replied, “First of all, I don’t that Donald ever said that he would bring back all of the jobs from China: But, he, he certainly would bring back some of the jobs from China.”

Outraged at Eric’s impertinence, Dana shouted, “He said it in his speech yesterday!” Accusatorily, she stuttered, “no, th, th, that, covering up for him is actually wrong! And, I understand that you have a deal that you’re trying to work on with him. I saw the Twitter last night! I just don’t see how that’s how any other journalist would be pandering.”

Incredulous, Eric replied, “I don’t know what you’re talking about!”

Pointing her finger at Eric, Dana riposted, “Well, you said that you’ve been trying to close the deal for years to be on Celebrity Apprentice!”

As Greg cackled in the background, Eric replied, “Oh, my god, Dana!…I have been friendly with Donald Trump for fifteen years!” Scowling, Dana answered, “You’re the one who was shouting it from the rooftop yesterday!” Agitated all the more, Eric asked, “Are you actually saying that you are going to accuse me of saying that Donald Trump has some good ideas that are resonating with America because I want to be on Celebrity Apprentice?  Please tell me that’s not the case!”

Glowering at Eric, Dana barked, “I am saying that!”

In reply, Eric snapped, “I will tell you unequivocally that is not the case! I can’t be on Celebrity Apprentice anyway: I’m a host at Fox News. I’m not allowed to!…Seven years ago, Donald Trump came to Fox and said, Hey! Can he be on it? And, the boss said, ‘no he can’t!'”

Defending Eric’s honor, Kimberly chimed in saying, “He did ask!”

Still enraged at Dana’s slight, Eric exclaimed, “By the way, by the way, Dana, Dana, Dana, I have way more ethics…than to use this platform which I love!” When Kimberly tried to wrap her segment to end the acrimony, Eric sharply answered, “Stop!” Finishing his point, he said, “I love dearly this Five: I do! I was here from day one, and I hope to be day last!”

Caustically, Dana interrupted, “Oh, guess what! So was I!”

Ending the segment, Kimberly exclaimed, “I’ve had enough! Go to your rooms!”

Clearly ticked, Eric uttered, “Wow!”

As the final shot ended, an angry Dana glowered anew and a miffed Eric shook his head.

Calling into question Eric’s ethics, Dana? Wow! President George W. Bush, this is not your dad’s “kinder and gentler” FNC.

[Author’s aside: After the Five yesterday, Trump Tweeted, “Dear @kimguilfoyle, Thank you so much for your nice words today on @TheFive. Will not be forgotten!” The author has a feeling that Dana’s words may not be forgotten either.]

The Concha Republic: The Daily Wrap

June 13, 2015

“The good, the bad, and the ugly”! FNC pundit and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha has a brand new show on NewsMaxTV and here’s the dope. The good? Joe and his co-host Forbes senior political contributor Rick Ungar put on a great show for political junkies discussing the issues of the day from the left and right. The bad? The show is not in HD: But, on the other hand, it is the mugs of Joe and Rick that their viewers are looking at! Re the ugly, imo, DW needs to demolish that horrid metal desk that creates distance from its viewers and replace it with a more welcoming glass one that embraces its audience; it should put up a realistic backdrop (i.e., one that does not indicate that it is dark in New York City at 6:00 p.m); end the tight shots; and add chyrons that identify the guests on the show.

DW is hopefully a work in progress. Joe is a very likeable chap who will, hopefully, make a go of it. He may need a bit more sartorial savvy: His producers should give the ole boy a well-fitting jacket like his cohort Rick.

Joe, good job! But, make it more friendly aesthetically. And, maybe, sex it up on occasion with some eye candy a la FNC!

[Author’s aside: A DW insider asked the author to give an honest review of the show, and the author believes that he has.]

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!”


[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:, Fox” 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 Questions about the media I will respond online: maybe, even here.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

Hannity’s Coed “Debauchery”

May 14, 2015

“T & a”: randy O’Reilly style! Sean Hannity, host of his eponymous program, seems to have taken a page out of O’Reilly Factor anchor Bill O’Reilly‘s old playbook. Decry debauchery but let your audience enjoy the view without feeling too guilty. Tuesday night, Hannity introduced his show with approximately fifteen seconds of coed “t & a,” piously intoning, “After years of out-of control partying, chaos, crime, and now even rape, Panama City Beach, Florida, finally votes to clean up spring break!”

Announcing a “Fox News Alert,” a la O’Reilly, Hannity proudly proclaimed the efficacy of his show, saying, “Panama City, Florida, is taking major steps tonight in order to end the chaos and the crime that has plagued the city during spring break: The city council has now voted to ban alcohol on the beach and try to stop all of this out of control behavior. Now, following a two-year Hannity investigation into what really happens when your kids jet off to spring break, we discover, in fact, that it was not all fun in the sun. This year alone the partying scene was wrought with debauchery, wide-spread drug abuse, gang rapes, and even multiple attempted murders.” He continued, “So, in response, finally…the Panama City Beach city council voted unanimously last night to ban alcohol on the beach during the month of March next year–that’s the height of spring bring…and to end all booze sales after 2 a.m….

In the segment with a Panama City Beach city councilman, an attorney, and an activist, Hannity, queried, “So, the question is ‘will these new common sense measures curtail the very dangerous spring break situation that Panama City Beach has been experiencing?”‘ As the three showered approbation on Hannity for the good that he had wrought in his campaign against a raucous spring break in Panama City Beach, footage ran of bikini-clad beauties twerking, funneling beer, etc. for over three full straight minutes! Subsequently, Hannity introduced his sexy seemingly naive investigative reporter Ainsley Earhardt in the next segment, praising her, stating, “By the way, joining us now…[is]…the co-host of Fox & Friends First, She’s been down there two years in a row. Ainsley Earhardt is with us.”

Introducing a Daily Show clip of anchor Jon Stewart ridiculing the spring break hype of Hannity, Hannity exclaimed, “We took a lot of heat, we got a lot of ridicule, let’s remind people of what we got when we started our coverage.” In the Daily Show snippet, Stewart derisively declared, “Yes, America’s oldest hall monitor, Sean Hannity, dedicated not one, not two, but five different shows on the horrors of spring break including the entire hour on Friday featuring a panel of outraged experts there to expose this annual event. You will believe what they found ’cause you know.” As he aired a clip of Hannity’s show of seemingly buzzed bathing beauties imbibing and twerking as Hannity voices over, “Drinking, drugs, risky behavior, sometimes with tragic results,” Stewart snarked, “Shortly, after filming that piece, that young [twerking] woman blew out her left butt cheek. Some of the more skeptical viewers might think that this is less of a news story and more of a reason to spend a week running wildly inappropriate “t & a” footage alongside pundits tsk’ing said footage. But, you’d only be 99.9% right.”

As Ainsley and another FNC contributor decried the Panama City Beach spring break scene, Hannity aired approximately four additional minutes of “debauchery” for those viewers who needed yet more evidence of the evils that Ainsley had witnessed. And, for those who wanted yet more proof, Hannity produced approximately another minute of footage during the following segment with Ainsley and Geraldo Rivera (about how things are purported “spinning out of control,” namely the “debauchery happening at spring break, riots in Baltimore, and, of course, the war on cops all across the country”).

Debauchery” on display: O’Reilly’s old schtick. Now, Hannity’s new hook? Surprise, surprise: Sex sells!
