    Dem Congresswoman: Food Stamps Help Small Business

    Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA): “When you’re talking about cutting meals on wheels, when you’re talking about cutting food stamps which actually is money that goes directly to small businesses markets in communities versus giving tax subsidies to farming corporations, these are the kind of cuts that the Republicans are talking about.”

    Bret Baier Re-Signs Multi-Year Deal With Fox News

    Fox News’ Bret Baier has re-signed a multi-year deal to remain with the network, continuing as the anchor of Special Report in addition to acting as lead anchor of Fox News’ political news coverage through the 2016 election.

    Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes described Baier’s approach to journalism as “tough but fair,” adding that “I’m proud to have him at the helm of this year’s election coverage and for years to come.”

    Adds Baier: “I am humbled by Roger’s trust and confidence and look forward to carrying out his vision for FNC – a commitment to breaking news, asking tough questions, and doing it in a fair and balanced way.”

    Baier has anchored Special Report — the number one political news program on cable — since 2009, when he took over the helm from Brit Hume, who currently serves as the network’s senior political analyst.

    In the months to come, Baier will report live from both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention in addition to leading the network’s election night coverage

    The last time they checked Erin Burnett still has a pulse..but what’s happening to Rachel?

    I do beleive you are correct. I am beginning to thing that the congressional beauty parlour is setting the rollers in their hair too tight! Or maybe they need to clean the air ducts to the offices, or maybe……………………….they are just LOONEY TUNES!!!!

  • Ratboy

    And by the way Coffee Steve, I wasnt totaly nakie. I had socks on because you left coffee grounds all over the floor! :twisted:

  • Laurence Glavin

    Rachel Maddow was off Monday night; Chris Hayes took her place and at the end announced that Rachel will be on tonight (Tuesday). I don’t understand why the cume at 9:00 pm Eastern would decline when Chris Hayes is on. He does a great job.

    Bret Baier Re-Signs Multi-Year Deal With Fox News

    He reminds me of Tim Russert…congrats to Baier

    **I wasnt totaly nakie. I had socks on because you left coffee grounds all over the floor

  • Rod D

    In the key demo:

    O’Donnell: 259k
    Greta: 267k

    Greta’s going down! :-)

  • Joan

    Rat boy
    Did Hannity ever sign a contract do you know? There was a big story about O’Reilly and Hannity having big offers as the number 1 and 2 then the story about O’Reilly I didn’t see anything about Hannity!

  • betty

    Att., Rod D….Greta will still be high after you’re “down” ( 6 feet under.)

  • Coffee Steve

    @Joan

    Hannity hasn’t signed yet but he should at any day now

  • DB

    Again, Fox’s early morning show (Fox and Friends) beats all the MSNBC primetime shows in total audience and demo. What makes it really sad for MSNBC is that it was a down day for Fox and Friends.

    I think I have figured out why Fox lets Beckel do his thing and apparently is not firing Jehmu, they are the best ads anywhere for the Republicans.

    Finally, even more off topic, is it just me or is Red Eye getting stale? I know Gutfeld is the backbone of the show and does not have the time to put into it anymore but also Shulz ( Bill–not ED) has become totally unfunny and just spouts the same old stuff over and over. Just my opinion but used to really like the show and now fast forward thru most of it.

  • Anthony M

    why do they still track cable news ratings when its just FNC and then everyone else

  • Coffee Steve
  • Jeff

    Sen. Lugar lost his primary fight with a Tea Party extremist.

    Hehe!!

  • Coffee Steve

    @Jeff

    Lugar never should have spoke bad about Coffee :-)
