Hannity Makes A Big Deal Out Of Christine “Not A Witch” O’Donnell’s Endorsement Of Mitt Romney

If there’s a doubt in anyone’s mind that Fox News will cheerlead almost any Republican, no matter how foolish or inconsequential, check out tonight's Hannity segment that trumpeted Christine "I'm not a witch" O’Donnell’s endorsement for the 2012 Republican primary. The thought crossed my mind that the whole thing was a sneaky way of making Romney look bad. But even if Hannity’s praise of O'Donnell didn't seem quite sincere, he sure did a good job of looking like his good wishes for her and Romney were.

Donald Trump Quits His Debate – One Day After Insisting He Wouldn’t

Donald Trump visited the O’Reilly Factor last night and promised that despite everyone but Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum declining to attend his December 27th debate, “I am going to show up and maybe we’ll just have a chat. We might just discuss the world and we’ll discuss it with ourselves.” But, oh what a difference a day makes. Today, Trump has announced his withdrawal. But, as FoxNews.com notes, he’s still threatening a run of his own. Can we stop treating this charlatan as a serious political figure yet? Also in the interview, O'Reilly hilariously lectured Trump about being overly sensitive.

Herman Cain’s Fox News Image Makeover Continues

Forget the multiple accusations of sexual harassment, infidelity and other improprieties. Forget the jaw-dropping ignorance about foreign policy. Herman Cain has suffered at the hands of the “liberal media” and that means there must be lots to like as far as Fox News is concerned. I posted last week that Sean Hannity dangled broadcast opportunities for Cain during his last visit to the Hannity show. In Cain’s follow-up visit – ostensibly to analyze the weekend Republican candidates’ debate – the only real question on the table was just how bad the liberal-media moderators were. And, for viewers at home, just how much could Hannity slobber over Cain. UPDATED.

Roger Ailes To Write His Autobiography

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Roger Ailes could get as much as $4 million for his autobiography, which is being co-written with Fox News contributor Jim Pinkerton. Pinkerton, you may recall, was recently blasted by journalists and media ethicists for failing to disclose he collaborated on a book with Michele Bachmann while he was discussing the 2012 campaign on the air.

Bill O’Reilly Wishes Barbara Walters “Happy Holidays”

Has Bill O’Reilly been brainwashed by the evil secular progressive Christmas ruiners? How else to explain his closing a discussion with Walters last night by wishing her “Happy holidays?” It’s true that Walters is Jewish but, as she said in a December, 2006 Washington Post article, she’s not religious. In fact, in that same article, Walters said she had a Christmas tree. Besides, why should Walters’ religion stop O’Reilly from wishing her a Merry Christmas? He certainly doesn’t care when it’s school children who don't celebrate Christmas. After all, he explained, it’s a federal holiday! That’s why I can only conclude that O’Reilly has been captured by SP aliens and brainwashed. Either that, or his whole War on Christmas crusade is a load of BS.
