    Oh Dougie!!!!!!

    You know you love it!!!

  • Doug Z

    I told you it is not a person

    , but a program . Just look at his post.

    We are taking about racist and he prints this . then no reply. Just keep up his program post. He works for somebody and his post are done by a program not a person

    This just in: the CPAC comedy convention searched the 315 million people in the US and finally found a black doctor who supports the right wing cause–one in a million—not bad….

  • Raz

    It is a pity there are such haters and ageist here. Considering its the people in their 50’s and 60’s that have the income to spend, they are a group that advertisers ignore at their own risk.

  • Andies

    HLN is going to have to start showing live trials all the time if they want to keep those golden numbers.. If these numbers are great… can you imagine the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial? Those numbers will blow O’Reily out of the water

  • Doug Z

    can you imagine the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial? Those numbers will blow O’Reily out of the water
    You got that right. My girl friend love this.

    They also have to have petty woman involed.

  • Doug Z


    the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial?

    She might not like this as well without the pretty woman. I will ask.

  • Andies

    @Doug Z true.. no pretty women in this Trayvon Martin/ Zimmerman case but ti think it will pull huge number. But wait.. You think Jodi Arias and Casey Anthony are pretty? :o) .. casey looks like a rat and Jodi creeps me out lol..

  • Ralph Hahn

    @People: The 35-64 demo listed here is just that: People aged 35-64. Because FON NEWS scores so high in that demo is NOT STRICTLY people aged 64.

    Keep up your guard against Liberal Bull-hit!

  • betty

    Jeffy…I dont “hope” anyone looses any job…read my lips, I SAID that
    Chissy the “Sweet & Well-mannered” Mattyews must be shaking in his shoes,
    and…FYI, I don’t have a Job to lose, I collect 3 checks per month, I am
    not wealthy, yet I retired at age 61 just before my 1st check came.
    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Chissy is 68 years and refuses to pack it in because he somehow thinks that anyone wants him to stay! Uh-kay, Jeffy ?

  • Letmethink

    Well the horrible Early Start/Starting Point is creeping ever closer to Morning Joe. Must give them reason for pause.
    Rats–how much do you want for your life? Does it come with the smoker? Can a potential buyer opt out of the snow?

  • Ratboy

    How about a plug nickel, you get the smoker but you gotta take the snow too. :lol:

  • Jeff

    Bette, Karma can come back on ya in many forms…..ya don’t have to just have a jobby to be knocked down a peg or two. Yes your comment was limited to being scared, but based on your previous comments it seems you would be quite pleased to see a person in the media you disagree with loose their job. Again karma is a bitch!

    I am very happy with the Fox Fake New line up! Don’t change a thing! Please rehire Dick Morris & Sarah Palin!!! Please!

  • Jeff

    I don’t think even George W Bushy would agree with this idiot….

    Fox’s Bolling: Iraq War Was “The Smartest Thing George Bush Did, He Restored Confidence In America”

    Yes confidence!!

  • Jeff

    I can pull quotes Phat Phuck Limbaugh too!!

    Limbaugh Asks Female Caller If She Spent High School “Baking” Or “Studying Home Ec”

    The Republicans don’t need the support of women……the leader of the GOP clearly continues to demonstrate that.

  • Jeff

    This guy learned how to Flip Flop like Mitt Romneisa!!!!

    Last week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced “The Life at Conception Act,” a personhood measure that would outlaw @bortions by declaring that “human life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore is entitled to legal protection from that point forward.” “The right to life is guaranteed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence and ensuring this is upheld is the Constitutional duty of all Members of Congress,” Paul said in a statement. Anti-@bortion activists have tried to advance similar measures across the nation.
    But on Tuesday, during an appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room, Paul — who is said to be eyeing a run for the White House in 2016 — seemed to waiver from his belief that all @bortion is tantamount to killing human life and should be illegal. Asked if the measure offers exceptions for rape or incest victims, the Tea Party star admitted that it includes “thousands of exceptions” and explained that medical decisions “in the early stages of pregnancy that would have to be part of what occurs between the physician and the woman and the family” — free of government interference:

  • Bobbyv


    Not saying you but I think there are quite a few people on the left who would like to see Fox people lose their jobs

  • RedbarSoup

    WOWWW!!! Fox Wins the Demo like 90% of the time, and once they lose ONE DAY the right loons come in here to defend their poor little Fox News? Saying the total number is the one that counts and not the Demo…you guys need a life or something… :) Also while you are at that….get a clue….buy one if you have to.

  • Jeff

    I’m sure there are Bobbyv, they celebrated when Palin lost her spot on Fox……. as did I…….so maybe that cold I got a few weeks ago was Karma….. (like she needs the Fox News job) she has a diminishing Midas touch still and has Bookoo bucks!

  • Bobbyv

    Lol, see, told you it wasn’t allergies…

  • usa8888

    This just in: you heard it here first–the GOP is FINISHED because they won’t oust the right wing t-party and their lunatic ideas. They try to say things to attract those who voted dem but without changing their ideology, they are DONE. So it will be dems again in 2014 and 2016…the aging Fox Fake News audience is now irrelevant BUT Fox and the right wing loonies like Slimebaugh and Beck will continue to make loads of money off right wing suckers. The country is SAFE–and that’s a good thing…..
