Weather Channel Distances Itself From Founder’s Climate Change Comments

ColemanKellyDavid Kenny, CEO of the Weather Channel, is distancing the company from comments made by Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman on Megyn Kelly‘s show earlier this week.

“Not only is the ice not melting, more polar bears are alive and happy today than we’ve had in 100 years,” Coleman told Kelly. The  research behind climate change “is bad, bad science,” he says.

In a note to staff today, obtained by TVNewser, Kenny writes, “Mr. Coleman does have a place in our company’s history, and we appreciate the contributions he made more than 30 years ago. However, we want to be clear: John Coleman is no longer affiliated with our company, and his opinions do not represent The Weather Company. We regret any confusion this has caused.”

Coleman, 80, has worked in TV news for more than 60 years. He was the first weather anchor for “Good Morning America” in the 1970s. In 1981 he co-founded the Weather Channel. He’s also worked at WCBS in New York, WBBM, WLS and WMAQ in Chicago,  and spent the last 20 years of his career KUSI in San Diego.

Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes Honored by Green Beret Foundation

KEANE_AILESThe Green Beret Foundation honored Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes, Publisher of the Putnam County News & Recorder and Putnam County Courier with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their personal support of the nation’s military and Green Berets. Army Gen. Jack Keane (left) presented the Aileses with their awards.

“Behind every successful man is a surprised wife,” Ailes joked as he began his remarks.

Last night’s event at the Pierre Hotel was emceed by FNC anchor Bill Hemmer. Various FoxNewsers were there including Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Harris Faulkner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Steve Doocy, Janice Dean. Megyn Kelly dropped by for the cocktail hour, so she could be back for “The Kelly File.”

“When President Kennedy helped form the Green Berets he knew that some day they’d be needed,” Ailes went on to say. “The values and principles that lead you to go in harm’s way willingly are unique American traits. The people in this room — particularly the Green Berets — have my greatest respect because they are prepared to risk everything for an idea, and that idea is called America.”

Elaine Howard, CEO of Gannett Government Media and Lieutenant General John Mulholland, Jr, former Deputy Commander of the Special Operations Command, were also honored.

Ebola Arrives in New York; Cable News Clears the Decks for Rolling Coverage

B0rMF7DIgAAD5i0Well, Canada, it was nice, but, well, we’ve got Ebola in New York. You could almost hear the cell phones ringing with news executives’ re-worked plans: We’re going to pull you guys out of Ottawa as soon as you’re off the air. Everybody to New York.

The cable news networks reacted with a frenzy of reporting Thursday evening in the wake of New York City’s first confirmed case of Ebola.

As New York is home to the nation’s major media, the emergence of Dr. Craig Spencer was enough to send producers pulling the keys from around their necks to unlock the nuclear launch codes. This, my friends, was big. Sorry, Dallas and Atlanta, I mean, well, do we really have to explain this to you?

CNN and MSNBC devoted wall-to-wall coverage to Ebola ahead of a planned news conference in New York, while planning extended coverage into the night and for Friday morning. Fox News announced it would air a live edition of “Hannity” at 10 p.m., followed by a live hour of “The Kelly File” with Megyn Kelly at 11 p.m. “Fox and Friends First” will begin live coverage at 4:30 a.m.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, at the Ebola news conference that was carried live on cable news and streamed online, said New York, essentially, had been ready and waiting for this. “What happened in Dallas was the opposite,” the governor said. “The more facts you know, the less frightening the situation is.”

So on with the intense coverage then–and no panic, okay? FoxSports.com writer Erik Malinowski grabbed a photo of CNN’s Ebola 7-box (above), about which author Adam Sternbergh noted “there are more people on that screen than have contracted Ebola in the USA.”

In Profile: Chris Jansing, Megyn Kelly, Alicia Menendez, Stephanie Ruhle

JansingPaul304NBC News’ senior White House Correspondent Chris Jansing talks to The Hill about growing up in Ohio, her move to D.C. and baking wedding cakes.

I’m happy a lot. Anytime I’m with close family and friends. Doing breaking news. Traveling. Meeting interesting people and experiencing new things. And it makes me very happy to throw a great dinner party with fun people around the table that lasts for hours. There should always be a cheese course.

kelly sandbergFox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly sat down with People to discuss juggling motherhood and her career, which doesn’t leave much room for sleep.

I have a set up that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and fulltime employee in the night. It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.

Fusion’s Alicia Menendez and Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle are both featured on Marie Claire‘s “New Guard” list, which highlights the 50 most connected women in America.
