So much for Fox’s stated desire to replace Kelly with a woman.

Just out of curiosity, how much Faux News do you watch? January 5, 2017 10:15 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Watch or DVR from 6-7 for the news. Love the panel with Krauthammer. Used to watch Brit Hume from 7-8 during election season. Major gravitas with that guy. Others not so much. Occasional O’Reilly, maybe once a month. No one else… Understood that Kelly had become a star there but never watched her. Ahhhhh, The Five, every so often. You? January 5, 2017 10:42 AM Log in to Reply Will Durant Not enough to even know who Tucker Carlson is. I had to look him up. Though my ignorance is not just with Fox as I only watch a small amount of talking heads for my news. ABC has devolved into 5-10 minutes of news followed by promotional content of their Disney/ESPN entertainments. Local news is either ambush style for useless video or from the “leads it bleeds” school of teevee marketing. Even on the net I get frustrated with links expecting me to watch a commercial to get to a 6 minute video with 30 seconds of real content, if that much. I’ve pretty much been able to speed read and edit on the fly with my own eyes following print from a very young age. Old dog doesn’t want to learn new tricks, but my BS meter still works pretty good regardless of the media. I don’t want my political advice coming from guys and gals whose primary job is selling Viagra and Ken Nugent’s services.

And this past election night…Fox all the way until 300am… January 5, 2017 10:46 AM Log in to Reply chefdavid Wouldn’t you loved to watch this one.

January 5, 2017 3:01 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Georgia’s constitution states that “no money shall ever be taken from the public treasury, directly or indirectly, in aid of any church, sect, cult, or religious denomination or of any sectarian institution.” — linked Washington Times article I don’t see this as anti-Catholic at all regardless of whatever intent was around in 1875, but just further reinforcement of the Establishment Clause in the US Constitution. The $58 million being siphoned off to private and religious schools by utilizing state tax credits could be better spent in addressing failing public schools. It is clearly a con game circumventing the Georgia Constitution. January 5, 2017 5:13 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
