OOPS! Time For Proper Introduction

In my haste to produce this new weblog, I've forgotten to properly introduce this weblog.  The is the Fox News Channel weblog dedicated to the network for Fair and Balanced news coverage (regardless of what some folks think).  Please feel free, whether you're and FNC fan or not, to read my pithy writings.

"Fox and Friends"

Fox News Channel is the home of, by far the best of the morning news shows on television (cable OR broadcast), Fox and Friends, which starts out weekdays with Fox and Friends 1st (with an assortment of rotating hosts)  at 3:00 AM Pacific/6:00 AM Eastern Time, followed by the regular version of F&F at 4:00 AM Pacific/7:00 Eastern Time hosted by Steve "Weather Guy" Doocy, E.D. Hill, and Brian "Sports Guy" Kilmeade, with Lauren Green handing the halfhourly news updates.  Beginning this coming Monday, July 26, the program will originate from Boston, site of the Democratic National Convention. On Saturdays and Sundays, Mike Jerrick, Juliet Huddy, and  Julian Phillps pilot the ship (known as Fox and Friends Weekend) at 4AM Pacific/7AM Eastern Time.  You can send an electronic letter to the show at

FTC Inaction (Hopefully)

My thinking is that the attempt by leftist groups to force the Federal Trade Commission to order Fox News Channel to dump its motto of "Fair and Balanced" will fail.  These people are soooooo envious of FNC's ratings runaway status.

Comments on "Fox News Watch"

If you'd like to put in your two cents worth concerning "Fox News Watch," you can drop an electronic line at

"Fox News Watch"

One of the best shows on FNC is "Fox News Watch."  The show is moderated by veteran broadcast journalist Eric Burns, who is joined by syndicated columnist Cal Thomas (who also has his own show on FNC, "After Hours with Cal Thomas" on Saturday nights), American University journalism professor Jane Hall, Jim Pinkerton, a columnist for Newsday, and media critic Neal Gabler.  You can see "Fox News Watch" Saturdays at 3:30 PM Pacific Time, 6:30 PM Eastern (and repeated five hours later) on THE Fox News Channel.

Uma Pemmaraju

I have long come to the conclusion that Fox News Channel anchorwoman Uma Pemmaraju deserves not only more opportunities to host, but should be promoted to full time anchoring duties. Uma's been in broadcast journalism for more than 25 years though she looks much younger than that. She is capable of conducting interviews as well as anchoring news coverage. If any of you out there likes Uma's work and would like to see her host more often, you can contact the Fox News Channel at

The Left's War On Fox News

It seems that there are people out there who long for the halcyon days when you the television viewer had only the three old broadcasting networks' newscasts, or, in more recent years, the three old broadcasting networks' newscasts and CNN.  The rise and emergence of the Fox News Channel have given them big time maalox moments.  Not only have they produced this piece of garbage disguised as a so-called "documentary," now these characters want to sue FNC over its' use of one of its' slogans, "Fair and Balanced."  They are very angry over FNC's overwhelming lead in the cable news ratings race.  They also detest talk radio and the use of the Internet  as other alternative sources for news.  If any of you pinkos are reading, there are several reasons.  A great many viewers and listeners like the program that you despise.  They have felt for a long time disenfranchised by old media because their programming has a bias that they do not agree with.  You FNC, talk radio, and alternative Internet news haters will never be satisfied until the government steps in shuts down everything.
