When will television news anchors ever learn? Just because it is on the TelePrompTer does not mean you should say it. Read the words first.
HuffPost’s Danny Shea has the video of Fox News’ Clayton Morris calling himself Steve Doocy… twice. Morris was taping the Fox Flash web feature for “Fox & Friends” when he made the rather serious error of calling himself the wrong name.
The worst part? After the embarrassment of actually saying what he said, Shea reports that Fox News execs “didn’t find it amusing.”
And why would they, there is absolutely nothing funny about this story. For TVNewser, this is Steve Doocy…
Update: Apparently Morris was not reading from a TelePrompTer but was making a “hilarious” joke. What a laugh riot.
Greta Van Susteren threw out the first pitch last night at the Mets game at Citi Field. It was also Fox Fan Night at the new ballpark. Several other Fox Newsers were in attendance including the Fox & Friends lineups of Gretchen Carlson, Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy, along with his son, new Fox News hire Peter Doocy. And the weekend F&F team of Alisyn Camerota, Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs. The Mets lost 3-1 to the Tampa Bay Rays during a rainy night at Citi Field. They lost a day game today, too.

“Here’s what’s pissing me off,” said Curry. “The reason I have to fight every time to do these stories is because the truth is that it’s hard to get the majority of Americans or even a significant number of Americans in NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS’s world, to care. I think journalism is a battle and I feel the scars and I see the blood on my sword on a daily basis for fights for foreign coverage to be more present in our broadcasting.”
The New York Observer reports the panel had some contentious moments. After Sanchez described Iran coverage and reports from people who aren’t “happy faced, really pretty anchors,” Curry interrupted: “I’m not sure I’m a happy faced, pretty anchor.”
Later, Sanchez defended his network’s coverage, and correspondent Christiane Amanpour. “I think it could be a little insulting to someone like her to say that we weren’t on the story just because…we weren’t rolling coverage of the protest of every moment of the day on Saturday, the second Saturday of the summer,” he said.
Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld announced last night he will be guest co-hosting Fox & Friends on Saturday.
“Yeah, they’re having me co-host,” he said at the end of last night’s program. “They are nuts. They’re out of their minds.”
It will be the first time Gutfeld is co-hosting the program, although he has appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend in the past. Saturday show will be co-hosted by Gutfeld, and regulars Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris.

Beginning today, Fox & Friends First, which aired from 6-7amET and featured Camerota as one of the anchors, is being replaced by a third hour of Fox & Friends.
Camerota will be moved to the weekend, beginning July 26, where she will co-anchor with Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris. For now the newsreader role during the week, previously held by Camerota, will be handled by co-anchor Gretchen Carlson.
Camerota began her nine day vacation on Friday, as she noted on her blog. She also responded to a commenter named Marshall who asked, “Does going on a long vacation make you nervous, or do you have an iron clad contract? Don’t pull a Laurie Dhue on us, or a Page Hopkins, or a…”
“Do you know something I should be aware of Marshall?” she responded.
