Krauthammer Called Ugly Again

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer can’t seem to catch a break. Within two weeks he’s been mocked by liberals for the way his face looks.

Earlier this month on his MSNBC show Martin Bashir played a video clip featuring Krauthammer. When the clip ended he sarcastically apologized for any “young viewers who may have been frightened by that face.”

Last night on Joy Behar‘s Current TV show, CBS News Contributor Nancy Giles shared a similar sentiment. Behar began the discussion with FNC host Brian Kilmeade‘s recent joke that women at Fox are hired out of a Victoria’s Secret catalog.

Displaced Joan Walsh Mixes Up Fox News Hosts

Fox News hosts Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy are, in fact, two separate people but Salon‘s Joan Walsh mistook one for the other yesterday. All Fox News correspondents are evil and one and the same, right?

Hurricane Sandy forced Walsh out of her home in New York City last week. She wrote in a column Sunday that her five-day stay elsewhere was comfortable, so she “chose real suffering” in the last hour before heading home: She sat in a car and listened to Fox News on SiriusXM.

Walsh described her perception of that hour, hosted by “Romneybot Steve Doocy”: Read more

Fox News Radio Host Gets Fed Up With Majority Whip

4cfc4ce2-1717-74fd-249a-e32c1a1c657f-fb_james_clyburn3.jpgHealth insurance is apparently not the rage these days in terms of conversation topics. Who knew?

Here’s a Fox News Radio episode of “Brian and the Judge”, where Brian Kilmeade is interviewing House Majority whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.). Right in the middle of the interview — you know, the good part where health insurance gets really interesting — Kilmeade shakes his head, puts his forehead in his hand and waves his arm in the air to show how bored and frustrated he is while Clyburn continues talking up his take on health insurance.

Clyburn, always among the coolest congressmen in interviews — we’re surprised he put up with it.

Of course not, noted Ms. Carlson. There’s no way that Senator Hillary Clinton could use the phrase ‘typical black person,’ they noted. ‘So there is a certain double standard in society,’ said Ms. Carlson. And also: ‘I sort of take offense at that line: ‘typical white.” Mr. Wallace was getting a little bit annoyed. ‘I didn’t think it was fair. I didn’t think it allowed Obama to make his point,’ Mr. Wallace later told The Observer in a telephone interview.”

  • 24/7 Wall St. presents, “The Twenty-Five Most Valuable Blogs”

  • Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert writes, “How dreadful was the news coverage last week surrounding the official release of Hillary Clinton’s public White House schedule from her eight years as first lady? So bad that I found myself in rare (unprecedented?) agreement with at least two prominent conservative bloggers who noticed the same thing I did: The Beltway press corps is, at times, a national embarrassment.”

  • Huffington Post’s Rachel Sklar reports, “Hillary Clinton’s Bosnia Story A Hit On YouTube!”

  • Gangrey.com presents the winner of the 2008 Goat Awards.

  • Media Week reports, “Time Inc., which has been hit by sweeping layoffs in recent years, has continued to pare its head count in its quest for cost-savings, albeit in smaller ways. This Old House shed four people in the past few weeks in communications, production and TV production, while at Sports Illustrated, a handful of people were laid off from the title’s Picture Collection archive. (Some of the SI staffers were to be assigned to other positions in the company, a Time Inc. spokesperson said.)”

  • Mesh Media Strategies reports, “I was privileged to join a group of bloggers, along with TV news executives and personnel from the Washington DC area, Monday night for a reception and private tour of the soon-to-open Newseum in the nation’s capital. In a word, it is spectacular.”

  • WWD.com reports, “Financial market turbulence, housing bubble bursts, Bear Stearns collapses — no wonder advertising isn’t looking rosy (or that most publishers don’t want to go on the record and talk about it). As the end of the first half draws near for magazines, business looks soft. Through April, the latest Media Industry Newsletter numbers show ad pages declined for most fashion titles and the unpredictable economy makes it impossible to predict how things will end up by June, much less the entire year.”

    RADIO

  • A release announced, “Beginning Wednesday, April 2, at 9 p.m., the National Symphony Orchestra will return to the airwaves of Classical WETA 90.9 FM. Performances are being drawn from NSO archives, and most broadcast programs will feature repertoire from multiple NSO concerts. These two-hour broadcasts will take place on the first Wednesday of each month for the next year. WETA’s John Chester will host. The series is made possible by WETA’s Friends of Classical Music, including Patricia Sagon.”

  • The Wall Street Journal writes, “The Justice Department’s approval this week of the XM-Sirius satellite radio merger was a long time coming — maybe too long given that the deal was announced more than a year ago. Still, credit Antitrust Division chief Thomas Barnett for making the right call in the end.”

  • The Wall Street Journal reports, “One of the marquee deals of the now-faded corporate buyout boom was close to collapse Tuesday night, a victim of the credit-market turmoil that began last summer. The planned $19 billion privatization of the nation’s largest radio broadcaster, Clear Channel Communications Inc., looked increasingly likely to fall through as the private-equity firms and banks backing the transaction failed to resolve their differences over final financing terms, people familiar with the matter said. It would be one of the biggest leveraged buyouts yet to implode as the upheaval in global credit markets has made it nearly impossible for banks that financed such deals to spread their risk by packaging their loans for sale to other investors. That’s left many banks exposed to massive losses they have been trying to avoid.”
