One Bumpy Flight for Fox News’ Maria Molina

Fox News meteorologist Maria Molina had one bumpy flight with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels: so bumpy, she passed out.

“You back with me now?” the flight instructor asked after Molina’s head slammed the side of the F/A-18 Hornet. “Yea, I passed out,” she told him.

Recounting the experience on “Fox and Friends,” Molina revealed her other response to the flight.

“At least you didn’t throw up,” co-host Steve Doocy said to her. “Yea, three times,” she admits. “We just didn’t show it in the package.”


Local News Anchor Causes National Stir Over White House Reporting

Catherina Anaya of CBS affiliate KPHO was part of one of those local news junkets to the White House on Wednesday. But in the span of one sentence during her 5pm liveshot, she, in her own words, “made two major mistakes:” Anaya reported things that were supposed to be off the record, then declared that White House correspondents give their questions to press secretary Jay Carney in advance.

“It was very informal and off the record,” Anaya said, before reporting what happened. “[Carney] talked about how he gets his day started, all the information he needs to be aware of in case he’s asked certain questions in the daily press briefings.”

Anaya then caused an uproar with this statement: “One of the things I found interesting is reporters and correspondents, unless it is breaking news, they provide questions to him in advance so he is already preparing for the answer.” The press secretary, and the press, fired off Tweets in response:

 

 

Last night, Anaya apologized for her “bad reporting.”

‘Fox & Friends’ Scooter Race Goes Awry

A “Fox & Friends” segment on new toys crashed and burned this morning when several of the anchors attempted to race scooters and skateboards in the studio. Steve Doocy crashed into the camera on his skateboard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck lost control of her scooter and Heather Nauert wiped out and landed “right down on the floor on my stomach.”

On the “After the Show Show,” Peter Johnson Jr. surveyed his colleagues on the extent of their injuries before they agreed to a rematch, although he declined to participate himself. “I’m kind of the Bob Costas. Look at my eyes,” he joked. Watch:


The Afternoon Ticker: Cooper, Carlson, Doocy

  • Gretchen Carlson will be the emcee of the annual “Time for Lyme” in Greenwich, CT in April. Carlson, host of “Real Story” on Fox News, battled Lyme Disease, a bacterial infection transmitted by black-legged ticks, for several weeks last year.

  • “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy will be honored next week as Kansan of the year. Born in Iowa, but raised in Abeline and other parts of Kansas, Doocy got his Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas.

The Ticker: Doocys, Grace, Heroes

  • Fox News father-son team Steve Doocy and Peter Doocy are interviewed in AdWeek. “When I first started reporting, my dad told me about all the rookie mistakes he made, which was really helpful because in a way he made them for both of us,” Peter says.

  • Nancy Grace will sit down with Alexis Somers, the daughter of the Utah man convicted of murdering his wife, tonight on her HLN program. The interview is Somers’ first since the verdict was reached on Saturday.

  • CNN has announced the celebrity lineup for the annual “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute.” Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Allison Williams, Jason Biggs and Jim Gaffigan will be attending, with musical performances by Daughtry and Sara Bareilles.

Fox News Correspondent on Appearing on His Wife’s Reality Show

Fox News West Coast correspondent  Adam Housley was on “Fox & Friends” this morning with his wife, actress Tamera Mowry Housley , half of the “Tia & Tamera” reality show on Style Network.

Housley often appears on his wife’s show, but is mindful of his role as a correspondent for Fox News. “You do have a line of professionalism you don’t want to cross,” said Steve Doocy. “Absolutely,” said Housley, “We do have the same bosses.”

“[The reality show crew has] a set schedule so I know when they’re going to be there,” he added.

Mowry then pitched a pregnancy testing product she’s endorsing and likely using as the couple is trying for baby number 2.

The final episode of “Tia & Tamera” is this Sunday, just hours before the entire Style Network goes dark to be replaced by the new Esquire Network.

Hasselbeck got a welcome from Regis Philbin, a cake from Carlo’s, she did Zumba with Sean Hannity and got a visit from, naturally, Donald Trump. The show also got a new set. (See the construction video after the jump).
