Who could have guessed that Fox News host – and reliable GOP mouthpiece - Martha MacCallum turns out to be totes besties with Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Colbert?
On The O’Reilly Factor this week, MacCallum revealed that she was in the front row of Colbert’s debut as The Late Show host, sitting with his family.
“His wife and I have been friends for more than 20 years and I was there when Stephen and Evie met,” MacCallum explained. “Our families are very close friends. Our kids were born at the same time.”
O’Reilly asked with incredulity, “So you, like, socialize with him? You have barbecues with him?”
“Definitely,” MacCallum replied.
“Where’s your sense of fun?” MacCallum asked, proving that she is a Colbert friend, indeed. She claimed the microwave is still in Colbert’s kitchen and offered to break in and steal it back. However, the oven has reportedly been auctioned and sold for charity.
It’s astounding that any Fox News personality would be pals with Colbert. But after O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, MacCallum may be the one we’d least expect. We have frequently caught her promoting Republican talking points while acting as an objective anchor, though she has taken some stands against extremism.
So does MacCallum's bond with Colbert make her better or worse in your eyes? How about Colbert?

I think you are mistaken about O’Reilly and Stewart. I’m pretty sure they have a sort of grudging fondness and respect for each other.
MacCallum is one of the few major Fox Names that I know nothing about, outside of her on the air. Never cared to look. She may very well be one of those media personalities that leave it at the door.
This further revealed just how petty BOR truly is. So people who hold different political/social beliefs can’t be friends with BOR? Or is BOR just pissed that one of his colleagues is friends with someone who dares to mock his bias, bluster and ridiculousness?
It’s very telling that the insecure and thin-skinned BOR didn’t reveal to or remind his viewers that the premise of Colbert’s show/his comedic persona were very much based on BOR himself. LOL! Looks like BOR is too much of a coward to tell the folks the truth of the matter.
Move Megyn Kelly to the prime time. Demote O’Reilly to less than prime time.
Bill still doesn’t realize it’s him being mocked?
