Fox News Hosts Break Vacations to Cover NYPD Killings, Political Fallout

OReillyBill O’Reilly was off on Monday night, but the killing of two New York City police officers brought him back on the air because, he said, “I’m angry.”

O’Reilly called in to “The O’Reilly Factor” to “send a big message tonight.” O’Reilly then delivered a blistering attack on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. “He is a far left individual who is incompetent. He cannot run the City of New York.” O’Reilly argued that de Blasio is an “anti-cop” politician “who should resign today.”

Of the killer, O’Reilly described Ismaaiyl Brinsley as a “loser” who is the only one with “blood on his hands.” He said “I hope he’s enjoying Hell right now.”

TVNewser has learned Fox hosts Greta Van Susteren and Sean Hannity also broke planned vacations to cover the aftermath of the NYPD murders–not by phone, but returning to work to host new editions of their shows.

Steve Doocy Discusses ‘A Fox & Friends Christmas’

xmasFox News Channel will air “A Fox & Friends Christmas” tomorrow night, Christmas Eve, at 8pmET. The annual special will be hosted by Steve Doocy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Brian Kilmeade with “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-hosts Tucker Carlson, Anna Kooiman and Clayton Morris joining in on the festivities.

“This has been a Fox News Channel tradition for a number of years. It’s fun for us to do, because No. 1, it actually puts us in the spirit of the Christmas season. It’s always fun for us and it is great for the viewers. It’s the one program we do that isn’t about the news of the day. It’s actually about the day, and the day of Christmas,” Doocy told TVNewser exclusively.

The two-hour program will feature several musical acts, interviews with notable guests and messages from several of FNC’s popular personalities. “American Idol” winner and country music artist Scotty McCreery will perform and co-host Doocy is looking forward to his appearance, “Scott is a great kid, a wonderful entertainer.”

The special will also include opera singer Renee Flemming, classical singer Jackie Evancho, “America’s Got Talent” contestant’s Sons of Serendip and American singer Jesse James Decker. The program will also feature appearances by the Young People’s Chorus of New York, the Radio City Rockettes.

“It’s a great opportunity for families to watch the whole program with kids, and their loved ones. You get the music, the stories and it is fun to do and fun to watch,” Doocy said.  Read more

Greta the Diplomat

NYPGretaThe New York Post, which until last year was a corporate sibling of Fox News, says Greta Van Susteren would have been a better Cuban negotiator than Pres. Obama. In an opinion piece, the Post writes:

It’s hard not to note that in another recent case — Mexico’s jailing of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi — Fox News’ Greta van Susteren helped get this US Marine freed without any of the compromises Obama agreed to in exchange for Alan Gross. Maybe next time the president needs a back-channel negotiation with some thug regime, he should send Greta instead of John Kerry.

The U.S. will be looking for an ambassador to Cuba in due time. Perhaps Greta is ready.

Exclusive: Erin Burnett on Her Show’s Success, And Her Most Surprising Supporter

BurnettEAt CNN, most of the talk in recent months has been about layoffs, the leadership of Jeff Zucker, and, at times, Don Lemon. Shows have been canceled, high profile talent and executives have departed, and after months of turmoil some insiders admit they’re exhausted. A few even describe the mood as grim. So it’s worth mentioning that in one corner of CNN’s Columbus Circle home, where the “Erin Burnett OutFront” show team works, the mood is upbeat. “I love coming to work every day,” Burnett tells TVNewser.

Since her CNN debut three years ago, Burnett has steered clear of the chaos and quietly created something the network has in somewhat short supply–an hour of the nightly lineup–7pm–that is both stable and successful. Last week, “OutFront” had a rare one-day win in the demo over Fox News Channel’s “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren. Year-to-date, “OutFront” has taken second place from MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews in the demo, and in November, the show boasted a +102% increase in the demo versus 2013, while “Hardball” fell -42%.

Burnett tells TVNewser “OutFront” has matured into a show she enjoys, and that makes the bosses happy. [Disclosure: I was part of the team that launched "Erin Burnett OutFront" in 2011]. “Creating a new show is not easy. You have to learn a lot of things the hard way. Over the past three years, we’ve built this show into an hour we are incredibly proud of…with a team that’s thick as thieves.”

TVNewser confirms Burnett recently signed a new contract that will keep her at CNN for several years–and further remove her from the uncertainty that surrounds other shows and stars at the network. But perhaps most surprisingly, she’s earned the respect and friendship of a very unlikely supporter–her biggest competitor.
