Some employees at Fox News were left embarrassed and humiliated by their network's coverage of the latest revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling, according to conversations CNN had with several individuals placed throughout the network.



"I'm watching now and screaming," one Fox News personality said in a text message to CNN as the person watched their network's coverage. "I want to quit."



"It is another blow to journalists at Fox who come in every day wanting to cover the news in a fair and objective way," one senior Fox News employee told CNN of their outlet's coverage, adding that there were "many eye rolls" in the newsroom over how the news was covered.



The person said, "Fox feels like an extension of the Trump White House."

I’m hoping for some kind of mass walkout, but I think the utter failure of Megyn Kelly outside of Fox probably kills those chances. As much as they hate it there, they probably consider not having a career anymore worse.

Said personality should quit.  On the air.

Oh give me a goddamn break.

Fox' Tapper smear continues, this time from Gorka:

This is really, really gross.  And expected.

Fucking bizarre:

But behind the scenes, Simmons turned his antics on women staffers — barging into a staff meeting on the building's 14th floor where he was conducting an interview and shouting, "Hey chicks, sue me!" while pulling open his shirt, the Daily Beast reported. Simmons then struck two staff members on the head with his book and insulted their intelligence.



A source confirmed the account to BuzzFeed News. Simmons also asked an employee, who is black, if he was Al Roker, the source said.



In response, Simmons was banned from the building, a network spokesperson said, and he will no longer appear on Fox News or Fox Business channels.

AFor two seconds, I confused Gene Simmons with Richard Simmons.

 As a Kiss fan, I'm glad I won't see Gene on Fox ever again. It is a drag that he did act like a weird, maybe racist, asshole to get that effect.

AReally weird since KISS is the Donald Trump of rock bands

Imagine how Jean Simmons must have felt. Imagine the fan mail she must have got by mistake.

I know last night Judge Jean, I forget her last name, was talking about Hillary's Uranium One "scandal." If she had watched her fellow Fox employee Sheppard Smith's show, she would have learned there is no scandal.

  As a die hard Kiss fan, it bums me out that Gene Simmons likes Trump. I started listening to Kiss back in 92. One of the appeals for me was that it helped me tune out all the douchebags I went to high school with. Cut to 2015 and Gene is praising someone who has taken being douchebag to an insanely new level. In short I still love the band, but I agree with Nick Simmons when he said he knows his dad is full of shit.

Gene Simmons did a really bizarre interview with Teri Gross on Fresh Air. At one point he bragged that he could go to a party and bang anyone's girlfriend or wife. I guess he's got issues.

AIsn't that the attitude of every dude at a party?

Judge Pirro was just charged for driving 119 mph in upstate New York:

I'm sure the radar gun has a liberal basis.

Climate change-denying dickhole Rupert Murdoch's house in LA is currently burning down due to wildfires. Is that irony?

No, it is delicious.

The #MeToo movement is going to ruin Christmas parties, says Laura Ingraham on Fox:

Quote:

It appears Fox News’ Laura Ingraham has found the real victim in the #MeToo movement — office Christmas parties.

“Is the #MeToo movement becoming a spoiler for this season’s Christmas parties?” Ingraham asked during a segment on last night’s The Ingraham Angle.

Speaking to conservative comedian Jimmy Failla, Ingraham wondered aloud if the recent spate of powerful men being outed for sexual misconduct and harassment would make for a less festive mood this holiday season.

“No alcohol and no fun and no lampshades and, I don’t know, maybe that’s better,” she noted. “Is this just killing all the fun of Christmas?”


I don't think I'll be seeking out Jimmy Failla's stand-up work.

Tells you all you need to know about FOX's Christmas parties right there.

If you told me that instead of sleeping in a bed, Laura Ingraham descends to her cellar and buries herself in loose soil, I wouldn't be surprised.

A"Conservative comedian?"

Ahahahahaha!

"Do you ever notice we're the root cause of everything that's with this country...? Of course not!"
AI mean I'm just still boggling over remembering twenty years ago when these exact same fucking people were absolutely distraught over sexual promiscuity and boozy frat party shit because that was back when they thought the Democrats were promoting it.

What's the deal with people who clean air and health coverage? I mean who are these people?

 A couple of nights ago I saw a bit of Sean Hannity's show and the caption beneath his face was FAKE NEWS. Fox has to be the least self aware network of all time.

Human tampon Tucker Carlson bringing the latest BREAKING NEWS to his key demographic:



That looks like something from the news reports in "Robocop".

Except I don't buy what Fox News is selling; not even for a dollar.

John Mooney, an executive VP and editor at Fox News, wrote a shitty piece about the Olympics that got plenty of criticism.  It was removed:



https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/g...mn-1083300



Quote:

Fox News has removed an online column by executive vp and executive editor John Moody following intense criticism online and from gay rights activists, who roundly attacked the piece.

"John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of FOX News and has been removed," the network said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday afternoon.

Objecting to an effort to attract more diverse U.S. Olympians for the Winter games, Moody had written on Wednesday: "Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been 'Faster, Higher, Stronger.' It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to 'Darker, Gayer, Different.' If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work."

He added, "Complaining that every team isn’t a rainbow of political correctness defeats the purpose of sports, which is competition. At the Olympic level, not everyone is a winner. Not everyone gets a little plastic trophy to take home."

The response to the piece was shaped in part by Moody's lofty title. He's been with Fox News with the beginning, though a network insider cautioned that he has no editorial oversight on any platform. As a result of his status and experience at the network, the column was not put through the proper vetting process, this individual said.

Three gay rights organizations had provided statements to THR on Friday criticizing the piece.

Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Greg Popovich and Steve Kerr have all been political at various times.  That's nothing new.  Guess which two Laura Ingraham went after on Fox recently?  Yep, you guessed correctly.  James responded recently:

Of course, the irony of this is that subscribers will need their devious Leftist Millennial grandchildren to set it up for them.

Good. Isolate the worst nonsense and hardcore wackadoos further.
