FNC PRIME TALENT 100713Just in time to celebrate last week’s ratings results that since its 1996 debut, FOX News Channel was the most watched network on weekday primetime basic cable during the third quarter of 2014, the network today celebrates 18 years on air. During the same quarter, the network was also third in total day viewers among all cable networks.

Its 18th “birthday” comes one year into its current primetime lineup, which includes “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” (7pm), “The O’Reilly Factor” (8pm), “The Kelly File” (9pm) and “Hannity” (10pm). According to Nielsen Media Research, during primetime for the past year, FNC ranked in the top 5 highest-rated networks in all of cable 96% of the time.

The network offered a flashback this morning to where it was 18 years ago today. Ohh how things have changed.

Greta Van Susteren Addresses President Obama’s Thursday Digs at FOX News Channel

Screen Shot 2014-10-03 at 11.44.34On Thursday, President Barack Obama offered remarks at Northwestern University on the economy and at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala on immigration reform. While the topic of each speech differed, he was able to weave in one common thread.

“There’s a reason, fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about Obamacare,” said Obama at Northwestern. “Cause good, affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on FOX News, it turns out it’s working out pretty well in the real world.”

His Twitter handle managed by Organization for Action later reiterated that statement.

While discussing immigration reform at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala Thursday evening, President Obama managed to reference the host of FNC’s “Hannity.” Read more

Greta Van Susteren to President Obama: ‘Put on a tie’

GretawireFollowing President Barack Obama’s statement on the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley by ISIS, FOX News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren took to her website Gretawire to call out the president for his attire, which did not include a tie, during his live remarks.

“And by the way, I am all for casual clothes — but he IS the President of the United States and he IS talking about a beheading of an American, not the annual Easter egg roll,” writes Van Susteren. “Put on a tie. All eyes are on the President and he needs to convey the right message on all levels.”

Obama, who’s been semi-vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard since August 9, also received flack on Twitter for not wearing a tie during a Monday press conference on current events in Iraq and Ferguson, Mo.

In Van Susteren’s five line headline, she opined in parenthesis that “this vacation casual is unacceptable in the face of this atrocity.”
