Bill Maher Sees Dead Cable People

SteveDoocyPicPer a guest column in this week’s Hollywood Reporter, the host of Real Time has a bad, sick-sense feeling about the possible takeover of Time Warner by News Corp. What’s good for the Doocy, the acerbic TV host imagines, will not be good for the Maher:

There’s a terrible price to pay for this. (I mean besides the terrible price I personally will pay when Rupert takes over HBO and my show becomes Paste-Eating Time With Steve Doocy.)

Maher may have it wrong. It seems to FishbowlNY that the more likely Fox News morning show host to be gifted with some extra Friday Real Time would be Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Has Gawker Spooked Fox News?

Fox News has declared Gawker “dead or dying,”reporting that the site’s traffic is down 75%, though that doesn’t appear to be even close to the truth. The erroneous numbers were first mentioned on the Fox News website yesterday, then repeated by Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends this morning. There are so many legitimately negative things to say about Gawker, why make one up?

John Cook is pretty sure it’s his fault:

I have for several weeks been working on a story about a Fox News personality that Fox News really does not want published! Fox knows what the story is, because I’ve asked its PR department for comment (they refused).

Gawker will publish the story next week, and we will be personally contributing to their web traffic.

Cindy McCain Knows Her Geography

We keep reading in the press that republican VP nominee Sarah Palin is like Dan Quayle. Dan Quayle is one of our favorite political figures of all time. Mainly because he made more gaffes than Joe Biden on a bender.

Cindy McCain, during an interview with George Stephanopoulos that aired yesterday was asked about Palin’s national security experience (or lack there of). She said,”Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia, so it’s as if she doesn’t know what’s at stake here.”

This, of course was echoing Fox News’ Steve Doocy saying that Palin (who didn’t get her passport until 2007) does have international experience because Alaska is right next to Russia.

Which does remind us of ol’ Dan Quayle saying,”I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix.

Yay! We have another 9 weeks of this stuff!
