Bret Baier: ‘After I Saw that, I Said ‘We Are Dropping the Ball on that Coverage’

BaierTVSBret Baier is taking a cue from John Oliver.

The Fox News “Special Report” host was watching Oliver’s inaugural show on HBO last Sunday when it hit him that the world’s biggest election — where up to 800 million people in India will be voting — is getting almost no coverage in the U.S. “After I saw that, I said ‘we are dropping the ball on that coverage,’ Baier told us at the TVNewser Show on Tuesday. His team is now working on a story about the election which wraps up May 12.

Baier says shows like Oliver’s as well as “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” “can really penetrate on news stories.”

We interviewed Baier for about 20 minutes following his keynote speech. We discussed everything from the 2014 and 2016 elections, to how he engages with “the most fervent critics of Fox News,” and the current state of the media’s relationship with the White House: “I think there is a sense that the president feels like he doesn’t get enough good treatment in a media that has, for the most part, turned a little bit on this White House, in policy and substance.”

I began by asking Baier what he thought about the president’s approval rating, which an ABC News/Washington Post poll released earlier that morning showed it had dropped to 41%.

Hillary Clinton Sees Media Double Standard Toward Women

abc_hillary_clinton_nightline_interview_lpl_130129_mnAt a “Women in the World” event in New York City last night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her view of a double standard in how women are talked about in the media, Politico’s Maggie Haberman reports.

“There is a double standard,” Clinton said. “The double standard is alive and well, and I think in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence,” she added.

She added advice for women, suggesting they not take criticism personally, but instead seriously. Clinton’s comments about the media’s gender double standard come a day after a new Women’s Media Center report showed a different issue when it comes to females and the media: a wide gap between the number of female media figures and their male counterparts.

Greta Van Susteren Has Media Advice for Hillary Clinton

greta-van-susterenThe media has been covering the over 4,000 pages of previously confidential Clinton administration memos released this afternoon, and Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren took to her blog to point out what she perceives as bad media advice then-First Lady Hillary Clinton received.

Van Susteren bolded in red parts of the released documents that she thought was not helpful guidance the First Lady received.

Greta

“The red highlighted notes are particularly bad media advice,” Van Susteren says. “Telling the interviewee (here, Secretary Clinton) to be rude? I think a guest / interviewee looks slippery who won’t answer the question asked and instead attempts to divert and this is the precise advice given to the then First Lady.”

Clinton granted Van Susteren an exit interview upon leaving her post as Secretary of State in January, 2013.

Erin Burnett to Ted Nugent: ‘Don’t Talk About My Colleagues That Way’

Erin Burnett Ted NugentAfter cancelling on her last week, Ted Nugent joined Erin Burnett on “Outfront” last night to answer for the controversial comments he recently made about President Obama.

After saying there was no racial undertone to his “subhuman mongrel” comments about the president, Nugent went on a CNN tirade.

“For anyone to claim that I’m a racist…is the typical crap that the propaganda ministry in the media, particularly most of your cohorts there, even though I got Piers Morgan‘s ass thrown out, and I’ll do the same with Don Lemon and Wolf Blitzer.”

“Do me a favor, don’t talk about my colleagues that way…I respect them both greatly,” Burnett responded. “They don’t deserve respect,” Nugent shot back.

Blitzer voiced his agitation with Nugent’s comments last week, while Lemon said Nugent’s apology came with too many caveats.

Burnett then brought up chimpanzee comments Nugent made about the president: “If I called the president, who is a black president, a chimpanzee, I would and should be fired.”

Hillary Clinton Takes a Shot at FOX In Super Bowl Tweet

She doesn’t tweet much — 3 times in January — but during the Super Bowl, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used Twitter to take a shot at FOX, but it was interpreted as shot at Fox News.

The tweet got thousands of favorites and even more retweets, not all supportive. @GOPMommy responded, “I know of 4 guys in #Benghazi that got ‘blitzed,’ it’s too bad you weren’t sacked for that.”

A few hours before Clinton’s Tweet, FOX aired a live Bill O’Reilly interview with Pres. Obama during which the president was asked about Benghazi, the IRS scandal and the healthcare.gov debacle. “These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them,” the president said to O’Reilly.

It was also No.1 in the A18-49 and A25-54 demos.

Also on the list was “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, who talked about her battle with MDS. “It was hard, because so much was unknown,” Roberts said in the emotional interview. “I was scared. For the first time, I was truly frightened.”

Live-to-Tape Goes Very Wrong for CNN

There was an embarrassing mix-up on “ICYMI” last night between Brooke Baldwin and Jake Tapper and ICN was watching.

The two had taped a segment about Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton traveling together on Air Force One to South Africa for Nelson Mandela‘s memorial. Not long after the Q&A started, Baldwin stopped Tapper mid-sentence, gave some instruction about how it should play out, then started over.

That happens all the time in TV newsrooms with pre-taped interviews. But usually the “bad” take is left on edit room floor. Not this time. WATCH:

For Baldwin’s part, she was quick to address the flub on Twitter.

Joe Scarborough: ‘I Really Need to be Calling My Agent’

On “Morning Joe” today, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski got into it over the RNC considering shutting out NBC and CNN from primary debates in 2015/16 because both networks are planning to produce films about Hillary Clinton, who may or may not be a Democratic candidate for president.

The discussion, as it often does, turned to the politically polarized cable news channels. Brzezinski called Fox News, “a mouthpiece for the republican party.”  Scarborough then questioned, “What do you think MSNBC is at night?” Mika responded, “I don’t think so.”

“Of course you don’t think so because you are a democrat,” Scarborough said, adding, “Whereas I am fair minded and down the middle and in so much trouble right now I really need to be calling my agent.”
