Gretchen Carlson’s Advice for ‘Ebola Nurse’: Stop Talking About It

“Real Story” host Gretchen Carlson says if “Ebola nurse” Kaci Hickox has an objection to being referred to as the “Ebola nurse,” she should “stop talking about it” and, perhaps, go back to work. Carlson responded to Hickox’ essay in The Guardian:

I never had Ebola. I never had symptoms of Ebola. I tested negative for Ebola the first night I stayed in New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s private prison in Newark. I am now past the incubation period – meaning that I will not develop symptoms of Ebola.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Returns After Tumor Scare, Surgery: ‘I Had a Scary Week’

“Fox and Friends” host Elizabeth Hasselbeck returned to the “curvy couch” Friday morning, and took time to explain her recent health scare. Hasselbeck said “I had a tumor in my abdomen” and doctors “didn’t like the way it looked.”

Following her doctors’ advice, Hasselbeck underwent surgery, which she said was successful, but “no fun.” Fortunately, the tumor was not cancer. “I had a scary week where we didn’t know what the results were, but I’m okay.”

Ubiquitous Jon Stewart’s Next Stop is ‘The O’Reilly Factor’

400JONBILLJon Stewart has been on pretty much every news channel recently (TV and Web) to promote his film “Rosewater.” But tonight’s appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” has the potential to make news for other reasons. Because, well, it always seems to make news when Stewart and O’Reilly  get together.

Last month, Bill O’Reilly  was on Stewart’s show to promote “Killing Patton,” where they got into a debate over White Privilege. The longtime frenemies have been frequent guests on each other’s shows since 2001 and even had a debate back in 2012.

Stewart’s visit to Fox comes the same week the “Daily Show” host had a verbal spat Fox Newser Sean Hannity.

In Profile: Payne, Atencio, Bartiromo

The host and namesake of Fox Business Network’s “Making Money With Charles Paynesat down with New Jersey Monthly to discuss the benefits of dressing for success.

There’s some common-sense stuff that’s just not being taught in high schools… A little thing like dressing right goes a long way.

Fusion’s Mariana Atencio wrote a first-hand account of how student activism inspired her to be a journalist. Mariana will be participating in Fusion’s RiseUp summit next Wednesday.

Every time I’m in the field as a correspondent, whether it’s in Ferguson or Hong Kong, I see a reflection of my younger self in the students who are putting themselves at risk by standing up to power and shouting “enough already!”

FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo was featured in Palm Springs Life magazine to discuss bringing “Opening Bell” to Palm Springs tomorrow, talking to CEOs and the job market.

I talked with one CEO who told me he is backing this clinical trial where you insert a semiconductor chip or sensor into your blood stream and your phone will call you  two weeks before you’re suppose to have a heart attack to say you are going to have a heart attack and you need to go see the doctor

Mike Rowe: ‘CNN, Fox Not Just News Outlets, But Nonfiction Outlets’

141014111252-mike-rowe-smiling-hat-story-topCNN’s “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” host Mike Rowe was the guest for an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit, and took plenty of questions about various dirty jobs he’s worked in the past and the new job he’s working at CNN. Asked about the transition to being part of a news network, Rowe suggested the old concept of news programming is evolving. “It occurred to me that networks like FOX and CNN were not just news outlets, but fundamentally, nonfiction outlets,” Rowe said. “CNN, in particular, was very interested in exploring alternative forms of programming, very similar to DIRTY JOBS.”

Rowe says fitting into a nightly lineup that includes Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett and Wolf Blitzer has been effortless. “They’ve been great to work with…And as long as headlines like Ebola, and ISIS, and terrorism, and natural disasters don’t completely dominate the landscape, I think there will be room for SOMEBODY’S GOTTA DO IT and other shows like it.”

How Bill O’Reilly Helped Save BU’s Student Newspaper

bill-oreilly_52792557A handful of Boston University students are sending thanks to Bill O’Reilly after the Fox News host donated $10,000 to help save BU’s independent student newspaper, The Daily Free Press.

The Freep, as it is known on campus, was formed in 1970 as a response to the Kent State shootings in Ohio. It is owned and operated entirely by students, many of them studying journalism at BU’s College of Communication. (Full disclosure: I served as the paper’s managing editor in 2005, when I was a senior at BU.) In recent years, the paper has been plagued by financial issues; on Monday, the Freep’s editors announced that if they did not raise $70,000 by December 31, they would be forced to stop publishing the print edition altogether.

O’Reilly, a Boston University alum, pledged $10,000 to the campaign on Tuesday. Along with a $50,000 donation from Massachusetts philanthropist Ernie Boch, Jr. and more than $20,000 in smaller donations, the campaign has ensured The Daily Free Press will survive another semester at BU.

Kyle Plantz, the paper’s editor-in-chief, told the Boston Globe that the check from O’Reilly arrived at the paper’s newsroom yesterday:

Staff at the newspaper received a call Tuesday from O’Reilly, who explained why he was making the donation. “As a former Freep-er, he got his start here and he remembers his time at the Freep,” Plantz said.
