CNN’s Kirsten Powers Slams Trump Surrogate Over ‘Gendered’ ‘Hysterical’ Comment (Video)

CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers ripped Trump surrogate Jason Miller on Tuesday night for calling Sen. Kamala Harris “hysterical,” implying that the comment was sexist. “It’s just women that are usually called hysterical,” said Powers. “How was Sen. Harris hysterical? I don’t really understand that. I mean, she was asking some tough questions,” Powers responded after Miller made a comment that Harris was “hysterical” during Jeff Session’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. “From my perspective — my, I would say, objective perspective — I mean it was … it didn’t seem like there was any effort to try to get.

Is Bill O’Reilly More Gun-Shy About Hostile Guests?

Is Bill O’Reilly More Gun-Shy About Hostile Guests?
On March 17, something happened on “The O’Reilly Factor” that has become more unusual: Bill O’Reilly hosted former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, who spent several minutes vehemently disagreeing with him.

Once, that wouldn’t have been cause for mention. The Fox News Channel host has always mixed it up with guests, usually, like Frank, from the liberal side of the political aisle. Yet since he was accused of inflating his war-reporting credentials, the sight of such naysayers within the host’s “no-spin zone” has seemingly grown more rare.

Fox News may be privately celebrating that it’s weathered the allegations against O’Reilly, whose program has marched on without a hitch. The host himself has been vigorous not only in defending himself (despite a few clarifications) but also eager to call out his critics, such as retaliatory broadsides celebrating the collapse of MSNBC. He has also derived satisfaction from touting his ratings success.

Bill O'Reilly Says Fox News Is ‘Fairly Balanced’ With 19 Liberal Paid Contributors (Video)

  • The Wrap
Bill O'Reilly put the Fox News slogan to the test on “The O'Reilly Factor” on Thursday, but never really came to a definitive conclusion. After a viewer said that he was tired of seeing “smug liberals like Kirsten Powers and Alan Colmes” on the network, O'Reilly jumped to their defense. “Fair and balanced is the Fox News motto. If the liberal view were not represented, we'd be liars, so that's ridiculous,” he said. O'Reilly then asked “Fox & Friends” host Heather Nauert how many liberal contributors the network had.

Fox News Hopes ‘Outnumbered,’ With Four Women and One Man, Offers Both Sparks and News

When “Outnumbered” launches on Fox News Channel today at noon, viewers may tune in solely to see whether argument erupts along gender lines created by the program’s eyebrow-raising central conceit of four female anchors and one male guest holding forth on the issues of the day.

But executives really just want audience members to stick around for the news.

“It needs to be a news show first and foremost,” said Jay Wallace, the network’s senior vice president for news. “We needed to have a show that would be nimble enough to deal with the news, having journalism at the heart of this.”

Even so, it’s hard not to look closely at the way “Outnumbered” is packaged. The show is unlike anything else on the cable-news daytime schedule. At the same hour, MSNBC features veteran correspondent Andrea Mitchell at noon while CNN offers “Legal View” with Ashleigh Banfield.

Fox News’ New Take On Female Panelist Daytime Talker Will Feature One Guy And Be Called ‘Outnumbered’

  • Deadline TV
Fox News Channel finally announced the replacement program with which it will fill the void left when Megyn Kelly moved to primetime — Outnumbered. It’s kind of like The View, in that it’s a panel of women taking on the day’s top news/pop culture headlines — only with an Fnc spin in that it’s got one rotating slot for a guy, who’s, you know, outnumbered. The announcement comes the same day The View announced it had talked all of its current and former co-hosts — including the ones who left under a cloud — to return to the show May 15 to say so-long to Babs Walters, who is retiring as show on-air Den Mom, though she’s continuing as show exec producer. Outnumbered debuts Monday, April 28 at 12 Pm Et; Fox Report Weekend anchor Harris Faulkner and Fox Business Network’s Sandra Smith are among the panelists named today.

Fox News to Launch ‘Outnumbered,’ a Noontime Panel Show, April 28
Here’s an interesting cable-news concept: Fox News Channel will launch a panel program, “Outnumbered,” featuring a rotating crew of four female hosts and one male.

The hourlong program will debut April 28 at noon Eastern Time.

Bill O’Reilly Asks: What’s the ‘Downside’ of a Woman President?

  • The Wrap

Fox News primetime shuffle: Megyn Kelly moves in, but O'Reilly, Hannity and Van Susteren stay

Megyn Kelly continues her rise in the ranks of Fox News Channel anchors, as the network Tuesday (Sept. 17) announced a revised primetime lineup that includes her new show, "The Kelly File."

Starting on Monday, Oct. 7 (all times Eastern), the very popular "On the Record With Greta Van Susteren" moves to 7 p.m.

"After 11 1/2 years number one at 10 p.m," Van Susteren says in a statement, "and driving home near midnight, I am 'to the moon' thrilled at a new challenge (and a new drive! Half the year I won't even need headlights!)."

"On the Record" replaces "The Fox Report With Shepard Smith," which is going away -- but Smith isn't. He is scaling back his regular Fnc slots to just 3 p.m., now home to "Studio B With Shepard Smith."

Kirsten Powers Battles Fox Panel: Right ‘Obsessing’ About Black Crime So They Can ‘Stick It To Black Community’

Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers sparred with the panel of Fox News Watch on Saturday afternoon over the specter of black crime, which conservatives have been using as a foil for the media's alleged obsession with the racial elements of the Trayvon Martin shooting.
