A Busy Friday for Senator John McCain

As potential U.S. action in Iraq drew saturation coverage on TV news today, Senator John McCain lent his voice.

The Arizona Senator, who has urged President Obama to “get a new national security team,” appeared on cable news five times across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN.

He started on “Morning Joe” and “New Day” this morning, first telling an MSNBC panel we should’ve left stabilizing forces in Iraq similar to Japan, Germany, Korea, and Bosnia. Speaking with Chris Cuomo, McCain got specific on Iraq: “Airstrikes are something to be considered.”

Next, he appeared on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” in a pre-recorded interview. “I think I’d put David Petraeus on a plane to Baghdad right now to sort all of this out,” he told Mitchell.

On-set in New York, McCain joined Neil Cavuto on “Your World” in the 4pmET hour following an Army press conference updating the condition of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is now back in the U.S. undergoing treatment. “Right now, he probably deserves a lot of our patience,” McCain said.

McCain rounded out the day back on CNN, appearing on “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” weighing in on which members of the president’s national security team need to go. “The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, number one, the National Security Adviser [Susan Rice], number two…who should probably spend time with her family on Sundays,” he said.

Charles Payne Shifts From Contributor to Anchor at FBN

Charles PayneWhen Charles Payne gets recognized on the street, he often gets told something along the lines of, “I love you on TV, but I’m not in the stock market.”

“Everybody’s in the market,” Payne told TVNewser this morning, citing examples of people who use Apple laptops or drive Ford cars. “What you have to figure out is – do you always want to be on the consumer side of it?”

Bridging the divide between Main Street and Wall Street is a cornerstone of Fox Business Network, and it will be one of the “great goals” of Payne’s new show, “Making Money with Charles Payne,” which debuts tonight at 6pmET.

“There’s a distinction between Wall Street, the physical place downtown … and Wall Street, the place where you can go and start to pick out great American companies to become a part owner of,” Payne said.

Payne says he sees a “two-pronged challenge” for himself: bringing down the intimidation factor of Wall Street and convincing people that it is still worthwhile to invest. He says he will accomplish this without falling victim to some pet-peeves of business television, including “an obsession with fast money, crazy terms you don’t know, someone telling you you’re going to crash.” Read more

The Fox Ticker: Witch Hunt, Name Game, Gadget Guy

  • Bill O’Reilly says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s recent call in TIME magazine to “expose every instance we find,” of racism, sexism and homophobia is dangerous. “If his vision were to come true,” O’Reilly said on his show last night, “we would be a nation of witch hunters.”

  • Neil Cavuto is a fan of the phablet, thanks to his “sausage-like fingers.” In USA Today, Cavuto talks about his favorite tech gadgets and the devices he uses to consume both financial and political news.

Did Pizza Hut Steal Neil Cavuto’s Idea?

neil cavuto_304x200In a Twitpic video this afternoon, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto‘s show tease claims Pizza Hut has made a fortune off his great culinary mind.

“Did I tell you that years ago, I came up with the idea for an all-you-can-eat meat pizza, with a cheese-filled crust,” Cavuto said, claiming that Pizza Hut has made a financial killing off his idea, in the form of the fast-food chain’s stuffed-crust pizza.

Cavuto then had words of advice for three former Taco bell interns, who claim they came up with the idea for the popular Doritos Locos Taco 19 years ago (Taco bell launched the item in 2012.)

“I’m telling you kids…you’re getting squat, because you didn’t think, just like I didn’t think,” Cavuto concluded.

Neil Cavuto: MS Diagnosis ‘Made Me Do Things I Never Would Have Done’

CavutoFox News and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto is the subject of USA Weekend’s Cause Celeb feature talking about his work to raise awareness for Multiple sclerosis. Cavuto reflects on how his life changed after his diagnosis:

His wife says it was “divine inspiration” that led to Cavuto’s on-air disclosure of his own MS while interviewing a pharmaceutical executive.

“I don’t think I would have adopted my boys (Jeremy, 12, Bradley, 11; he also has a daughter Tara, 28) had I not had the illness. It humanized me, taught me not to be a jerk. It made me do things I never would have done,” says the initially reluctant advocate. “It forced me to focus on things that were important.”

Neil Cavuto Reflects on His 30 Years in TV

CavutoFox News and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto talks to the Hartford Courant about his first job, how his MS can affect his interviews and how the business has changed in his 30 years on television:

A lot has changed. When I started just doing work on financial shows like CNBC’s Nightly Business Report, it was the only place you could see stock prices other than newspapers. Now there are hundreds of sites. Now we are not only giving data but context as well. I fear though, in some cases, it is going from serious to adding some entertainment components and in our profession that is the conundrum. We can’t think of it as just a way to inform people anymore and we have to deliver the news in a new way without dumbing it down.

Liz Wahl Would Definitely Join CNN and ‘Maybe’ Join MSNBC

CavutoWahlLiz Wahl hasn’t gotten any job offers as of yet. The former RT anchor, who quit on air Wednesday afternoon, told Neil Cavuto she’s not sure what she’ll do next.

Cavuto: “Would you go to MSNBC?”
Wahl: “Maybe.”
Cavuto: “Would you go to CNN?”
Wahl: “Yes.”
Cavuto: “Would you go to Fox?”
Wahl: “Oh my gosh, well, we’ll see what offers stand.”

“I didn’t realize how much of [Russian president Vladimir Putin's] views would actually be pushed in the newscast,” the former Fox News intern said about her 2 and a half years at the network. She says RT has “a fringe following.”

“People actually believe what is being said on air here,” said Wahl, who will be back in front of the camera this Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
