Fox News Digital won a Shorty Award last night for Best Integration of Social Media with Live Television for the 2012 Election Night. Co-anchored by FNC’s Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly, the evening garnered over 12 million viewers according to Nielsen data.

They share this win with Bravo TV Play Live on Watch What Happens Live.

    oooh…what a great award to win…I bet Meryl Streep is envious today….

  • Hillbilly

    Congrats! I have no idea what a Shorty Award is, but winning something is always nice. :)

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    It worth the price of admission to watch Megyn Kelly go to the real pollsters and drain all the hot air out of that idiot Karl Rove.

  • Ben

    Amen to that
    Anthony Parello (APo76).

    Watching Karl Rove have a meltdown was fun. The sort of behavior that is an inspiration for a Saturday Night Live sketch.

    Bravo and Fox News sharing an award… so ironic.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Awards are handed out for excellence. Why you boneheads brought karl Rove into this I’ll never know. That’s like me bringing up ABSCAM, John Edwards and Obama. lol

    This award must be a joke, right?? It was fun to watch Fox Fake News bungle election night coverage…I thought I was watching Saturday Night Live….

    @Ralph Hahn

    Go to Videos. Type in these words: Karl Rove election night.

    He had a live on air, seen by millions nationwide, meltdown on Fox News after the network had reported (along with ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, PBS), that President Obama had carried Ohio. Rove insisted that he was correct and everyone else was wrong. He was benched by the network for his behavior. Almost everyone knows about that incident.

    Saturday Night Live did refer to it the following weekend.

    It will be a long time before another person running for office pays Karl Rove any money to help them get elected.

    @Ben: Karl Rove was only one of maybe a dozen analysts on Fox’s Election Night coverage. If the program is singles out, usually the kudos to the host(s). That’s why Brett and Megyn are pictured.

    Dick Morris was the one who got canned after the election.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I’m not a fan of Karl Rove, but he is just a pawn in the large group known as Fox News. Rove is very partisan, I know, but NOT indicative of Fox News as a whole.

    But, I’ll take Rove over Chris Matthews, who got tingles up his legs while listening to Obama’s 1st term speech. LOL

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ben: Oh, yeah. A story reported on SNL is usually fake.

    I don’t know why you libs refer to Fox as Fake News. Fox is just about the only network that raised questions about Bengazi. Hillary was going to testify before Congress, but got Jungle Fever or whatever. When she finally testified, she was just a citizen at the time. Our Ambassador and three other loyal American foreign diplomats got killed, needlessly. And NO one in this Administration is taking any responsibility. Someone will eventually get tossed under a bus to take the vblame, probably the somebody was just following orders from above.

    The REAL Fake News is done by the lamestream media who ignores the real news as favors to Obama. That’s not real reporting. It’s keeping their viewers in the dark because all they are is Obama’s propaganda networks.

    Proving yet again why it is the number one name in news!

  • Scandalfan

    Maybe shorty award = razzie award. That’s the only award Fox Faux News deserves.

  • JusThaFacs

    HaHaHa to the jokers on BSnbc. I bet not one of them are getting a thrill up their leg after finding out FOX had over 12 million viewers. Joe, Mika, Chuck, Chris, Al, Rachael and Lawrence are wondering if they’ll even have a job after Comcast exec’s read about this. Of course they’ll still have their job because Comcast just does not give a damn.

    Congrats to FOX…!!!
