Greta Van Susteren Slams Stelter’s Comments on Layoffs: ‘Are You Kidding? That’s Cold’

greta-300x168 copyOn Sunday, CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter described last week’s layoffs at the network as “painful,” but part of a media industry trend he called “reshaping.” Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren saw TVNewser’s story on Stelter and called his commentary “cold”:

This is pretty cold to call what happened to so many hard working people – who lost their jobs – “reshaping.” The truth: failed management. Those who got laid off were doing their jobs — you can’t say that for those who manage the place. If they did their jobs, there would not be so much heartache and worry for so many.

What is also cold is the way this is done. Management doesn’t manage effectively…leading to layoffs…or, code, ‘reshaping’ and then it doesn’t even have the guts to do it themselves. They have HR do it….and even worse, the reshapen employee is escorted out of the building. Go figure, right?

By the way, how does Jeff Zucker keep his job?

Stelter responded to Van Susteren’s comments on Twitter:

Greta Van Susteren Defends Ebola Coverage: ‘I’m Doing My Job, And So Are the Others’

gretaYou don’t often hear a Fox News Channel host defending CNN and MSNBC, but Greta Van Susteren does just that in a sharply-worded defense of Ebola coverage on cable news: “It was the media torch that has ramped up the government’s attention to this predictable crisis and, if further unchecked, catastrophic crisis.”

In a post on Van Susteren’s “Greta Wire” blog, the FNC host (who just reported from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Maryland, interviewing three doctors working on the first Ebola vaccine) suggests critics of cable’s expansive coverage of Ebola–and particularly its arrival in the United States–of deliberately missing the point:

We should have done this so called ‘overboard reporting’ months ago. Maybe if we had, the Texas Hospital would have been ready to deal with Mr. Duncan and maybe two nurses would not be in isolation units, one at Emory, and one at NIH – and others quarantined. Maybe even our government would have been ready?

Just consider this: without the media all over President Obama about ebola, he would not have canceled his fundraising trip to Connecticut to stay home and convene a meeting about ebola at the White House. You can credit the media for that.

Of course the reporting is not perfect but it is getting traction with our government.

And as for the oldest trick in the book? The critics of current ebola reporting are using it themselves! They are criticizing those who are putting a giant spotlight on the crisis and thereby drawing attention to themselves. Some may really need the attention….sagging sales?

Sean Hannity: ‘I Don’t Like Bill Maher as a Person But…’

HannityA fiery debate between usual allies Bill Maher and actor Ben Affleck on HBO last week has crossed over to cable news this week, and last night, Sean Hannity had a surprising compliment for the former.

“I don’t like Bill Maher as a person, but I think Bill Maher is good for America,” Hannity said to guests Greta Van Susteren and Bob Beckel. “He says all these outrageous things; he’s almost become an iconoclasm because he’s willing to speak the truth when so many others in the media are scared to death.”

Maher and Affleck got into a heated exchange on “Real Time” last week over radical islam, with Maher suggesting criticizing Islam doesn’t equate to criticizing Muslims as people. Affleck objected, claiming Maher was painting a broad brush on the entire Muslim religion. The sparring match between the two spilled over to cable news: Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC all did segments off of the HBO debate.
