FNC’s ‘War Stories’ a Tribute to Marie Colvin

Tonight Fox News presents a 2004 edition of “War Stories with Oliver North” as a special tribute to journalist Marie Colvin, who died last week covering the Syrian civil war. The one-hour program features an interview with Colvin in which she talks about how she got into war reporting and the violence she’s seen along the way. “War correspondents have to be able to deal with absolutely everything,” she says. The special delves into the history of war reporting in interviews with Pulitzer Prize winners Eddie Adams and Nick Ut, as well as News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch who talks about his father’s work as a journalist during WWI. Colvin worked for the News Corp.-owned Sunday Times.

“War Stories with Oliver North: Deadlines on the Battlefield” airs tonight on FNC at 9pmET/PT.

CNN Contributor David Frum Says He Was Banned from FNC Appearances After Limbaugh Comments

Conservative columnist David Frum — who was named a CNN contributor last month — writes about the past, and the future, of the Republican party in New York magazine this week. Buried toward the end of the piece is an interesting few sentences about what may be the source of the rift between Frum and Fox News Channel, which he has frequently been critical of in the past two years:

Back in 2009, I wrote a piece for Newsweek arguing that Republicans would regret conceding so much power to Rush Limbaugh. Until that point, I’d been a frequent guest on Fox News, but thenceforward some kind of fatwa was laid down upon me. Over the next few months, I’d occasionally receive morning calls from young TV bookers asking if I was available to appear that day. For sport, I’d always answer, “I’m available—but does your senior producer know you’ve called me?” An hour later, I’d receive an embarrassed second call: “We’ve decided to go in a different direction.”

FNC’s Shannon Bream on TV News: ‘I Immediately Felt This Is Where I Was Meant To Be All Along’

Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream is profiled in this month’s Northern Virginia magazine, and the Washington correspondent reflects on her interesting, and unusual, career path. Bream was a corporate lawyer in Tampa — which she described as “a square peg in a round hole” — before getting her start at a local station in Florida:

“It was love at first sight being in the newsroom,” recalls Bream. “I immediately felt this is where I was meant to be all along.” An intern at Tampa’s ABC affiliate, WFTS-TV, Bream worked as a corporate lawyer by day and then into the wee hours at the station by night and on weekends—all in addition to attending a necessary class to qualify as an intern. Hungry for industry knowledge, Bream would do anything she could at the station to learn more about the craft. “On weekends, I would beg some reporter to let me go along with them to learn.” Read more

Fox News Teams Up With Google for GOP Debate in September

Fox News will tap into Google’s web technology to involve viewers in a jointly-hosted Republican presidential debate, slated for September 22 at 9 p.m.ET.

The debate will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando and will be moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier, with panel contributions from Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly. Fox News will ask for question submissions via Google-owned YouTube, and viewers will be able to vote on the questions they want answered. The debate will also incorporate Google search trends and public data, “to help provide context to the questions and inform the debate throughout the evening,” according to the Fox News release.

The September 22 debate follows the ratings success of the last FNC Republican presidential debate, held in Ames, IA, on August 11.

FNC’s Shepard Smith: ‘Some Buildings Shook, It Scared Some People, and It’s Over’

The cable news networks juggled a lot of breaking news yesterday, shifting away from Libya when the Virginia earthquake struck shortly before 2 p.m. Fox News Channel’s Shepard Smith attempted to put it all in perspective on “Studio B,” kicking off the 3 p.m. broadcast by saying, “The east coast appears to be, for reasons unknown, in a bit of a freakout mode. That is a mistake.” Smith went on to say that the live pictures of evacuations in New York and DC — which were all over the cable networks, including FNC, for most of the afternoon — were “ratcheting up a sense of panic that is completely unnecessary and absolutely counterproductive.” Watch:
