    I see John Roberts has moved up to Senior News Correspondent?

    I have no idea why, during the primaries, Shepard Smith had been given a lesser role than someone else you would expect who anchors FNC’s “The Fox Report,” the network’s newscast-of-record.

    I know that Shep had appeared on FOX Broadcasting during Election Night breaks. No dissing Brett Baier, but I would have assumed that Shep should have anchored the primary debates, no?

    @Ralph Hahn:John Roberts was hired from CNN as the Senior News Correspondent

    @Snap Tie: John Roberts was hired to run the Atlanta bureau, covering the southeastern section of the U.S., but until today, I never saw the title of “Senior Correspondent” before or after his name.

    This is all fine, but where’s Red Eye? That’s all that matters here.

    Dana Perino started a draft “Greg Gutfeld to speak at the convention” deal. I would watch if he did. :grin: No way they’ll let him. Gutfeld would probably get bleeped. :lol:
