  1. Hey Bobby,
    Terrific reporting and commentary, as always!
    I believe Jeff Zucker has already done a ‘cam newton’ and checked out on CNN. Sure, he shows up and goes through the motions, but a dumpster fire is in the cards for CNN in the new year as Zucker dreams of climbing the ladder and running a media empire. However, if the masters of the universe are somehow thwarted in November, ol’ Jeff may be up schitt’s creek.

  2. Shep is going to have a hard time. When he left Fox, he was widely viewed by the conservative Fox audience as very liberal. Much like Chris Wallace is today. The liberals/progressives see him as a former Fox News anchor and hate him before they even listen to him.

  3. Tucker Carlson blew up because he is first to put a finger on the massive undercurrent of skepticism the public has of the loads of propaganda being spewed at us from all corners of our lives. We are being manipulated by many establishments we historically trusted, we all know something’s up, and Tucker gave voice to this HUGE population. This population is also the hidden voter pollsters aren’t catching. People are fed up and he can articulate better than anyone.

    Shep Smith is just another sad victim of TDS.

  4. Shep isn’t “viewed” as liberal; he is. When reading a Teleprompter, he is very good, almost as good as Obama. When speaking off the cuff, he is terrible and shows his lack of command of basic facts. As for the Constitution and laws, he is completely ignorant. Which is why FNC let him go.

  5. Tucker Carlson is so good, he makes you wonder what the hell you were watching or doing before his show came into existence. It’s hard to imagine surviving this election year without him providing pushback and sanity vs. lying media and sleazeball politicians.
