FOX News White House Reporter Ed Henry To WH Press Secretary Jay Carney … It Doesn’t Sound Like ObamaCare Website Is Actually Fixed
This is how the Obama White House defines meeting their Obamacare goals, when site is stressed, instead of getting an error message, they send you off to an overload area and send you an email to try again later.
Yesterday, Fox News White House reporter Ed Henry held Press Secretary
Baghdad Bob Jay Carney’s feet to the fire and questioned whether the Obama administration had actually met the deadline of fixing the Healthcare.gov web site. People are getting a cue message, instead of an error message. The individuals are still not enrolling, they are just getting placed in another line to wait. But this is the governments definition of success. So what did Carney do in his response, got defensive of course. Note to Obama Admin, you have no more “trust” capital with the American people. Either start telling the truth and acting like humans to others who you have consistently lied to for feel their wrath in 2014, 2016 and thereafter.
These people are still playing politics and being disingenuous with the American people even after they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
George Will Says on Fox News Sunday: “All Hell is Going to Break Loose’ When Employers Dump Plans Due to Obamacare
The Obamacare web site is not the problem, Obamacare is America’s problem …
On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor George Will discussed the the self-serving administration’s status report on Obamacare that stated its functionality was still months away. Even though they [Obama minions] declared victory on Sunday that they had met their goals. However, as the liberal MSM focuses on the Healthcare.gov relaunch, George Will points out the the worse is yet to come … even more ominous, with potentially much larger implications, he sees on the 2014 horizon when employers start dumping employees on to Obamacare, Medicare and Medicare and “All’ Hell is going to break loose.”

“100 million people get their insurance from Medicare and Medicaid, 171 million get it from their employers,” Will said. “Watch the employers. Because if they start dumping people into Medicare and into Medicaid, and the doctors then say, ‘The burdens are too high, and the reimbursement is too low, we’re not seeing Medicaid patients,’ then all hell is going to break loose.”
Full discussion of Obamacare between Fox News Sunday panel can be read HERE of Fox News senior political analyst, Brit Hume; former Democratic congresswoman, Jane Harman; syndicated columnist, George Will; and former Democratic senator, Evan Bayh.
WALLACE: An ad from Organizing for Action, the advocacy group for President Obama, pitching family talks about Obamacare this holiday season.
And it’s time now for our Sunday group: Fox News senior political analyst, Brit Hume; former Democratic congresswoman, Jane Harman; syndicated columnist, George Will; and former Democratic senator, Evan Bayh.
Well, as of midnight, I was going to say we have a new and improved, but I guess it’s an old and improved Healthcare.gov Web site that the administration is touting made dramatic progress. White House officials emphasize, though, the focus should not be on the deadline, it should be on the continuing process of getting it better and better.
Having said that, Brit, don’t they have a lot riding on how this goes, the next few weeks?
BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: Of course. I think the website is a little better. We were on it yesterday, just to see what, you know, might be out there, what might be available. The site works better. You can get through and check plans.
The #1 Cable News Network just landed a huge get for their Business channel …
From TV Newser comes the following story, after 20 years at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo is leaving and headed to the the Fox Business Network. The “Money Honey”will re-join Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who first put her on the air when he ran CNBC. Maria over the years has also been called the “Business Babe.” But seriously, Maria Bartiromo is a ground-breaker in the industry, not just for woman, but for reporting on major business stories over the years and making it possible for business channels to succeed. Maria Bartiromo was the first correspondent to report live every day from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. It is hard to believe that I have been watching CNBC that long. Bartiromo will also be joining Lou Dobbs at FBC, who she also worked previously with at CNBC.
Breaking: Maria Bartiromo is leaving CNBC to join Fox Business.
“After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24,” a CNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Her contributions to CNBC are too numerous to list but we thank her for all of her hard work over the years and wish her the best.”
Why I love Maria Bartiromo and have watched her for years on CNBC. Watch the video below and her rip Democrat Senator Ben Cardin a new one for being disingenuous on tax reform and only wanting to tax the rich as an answer. As she says, “its your way or the highway”. And when the senator made the comment, next time let me answer the question, Maria responded and hit him over the head again by saying, “Oh you’ve answered. You have answered quite clearly”.
Maria Bartiromo’s statement on her leaving CNBC:
“After twenty great years of having a front row seat to some of the most important economic stories in the world, it’s hard to sum up the gratitude and appreciation I have for the team that helped make it happen. I am incredibly proud of what we have been able to accomplish. I want to thank all the people at CNBC who have been with me on this journey, and of course the viewers and investors everywhere for making me love every minute of it.”
From The New York Times:
Ms. Bartiromo is expected to work on a program about the day’s developments on Wall Street. Her new deal is also expected to include exposure on the far-more-watched Fox News. (Neither Fox outlet commented publicly on Monday about the hiring.)
The signing is a coup of sorts for Fox Business, which has struggled to establish a profile. Last week, Fox Business averaged fewer than 10,000 viewers in the group that attracts advertisers, those between the ages of 25 and 54. CNBC had more than three times as many with 31,000.

FOX News Prime Time Shake Up … Megyn Kelly to Take Hannity’s 9 PM Slot … Roger Ailes Says ‘All of Our Stars Will be Back’
BIG SHAKE UP ON PRIME TIME FOX NEWS SCHEDULE … MEGYN KELLY MOVES TO 9 PM.
According to the Drudge Report, FOX News is set to make their first change in their prime time schedule in 10 years. Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM time slot, previously held by Sean Hannity. This does not come as too much of a surprise as before Megyn Kelly went on maternity leave, she stated when she returned she would be leaving her day time show and moving to prime time.Well it appears she has landed the coveted 9 PM slot.
What a problem to have for FOX, some much talent and not enough time slots for them. This is also terrible news for the rest of the cable news networks like CNN and MSNBC, who already are a distant second and third. Tak about the rich getting richer. So why is FOX the #1 cable news network? They do not sit on their laurels and just bleed the current model until in fails. They are aware enough to realize that tweaks to their business and viewership model are needed to stay #1. The joke of the day had to be from CNN’s Peirs Morgan. That’s right, who? Megyn Kelly will now be taking Pier’s on in the 9 PM hour which prompted Morgan to Tweet, “Bring it on”. Really? Dude, Piers, get a reality check … “It’s already been broughten”.
But do not let your heart be troubled, according to Roger Ailes, Hannity is going nowhere and all the FOX News stars will be back. So is FOX prime time going to be from 7 to 11? Their line up will most likely be Greta Van Susteren 7-8, Bill O’Reilly 8-9, Megyn Kelly 9-10 and Sean Hannity 10-11.
The first question Cavuto asked was about the rumor, first reported on Drudge Report, that Megyn Kelly will me moving into the 9pmET time slot this Fall. “Generally, I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” said Ailes, adding “all of our stars will be back.”
As for Hannity, who currently hosts the 9pm hour, Ailes said, “Hannity is a brand that many of our viewers love and want to see, and, as you know, is one of the nicest guys in the building.”
Hot Air has a bunch of possible mix and matches with time slots and who could be going where. It is incredible how with one slight change and so much talent on one cable news station just how much is affected as one domino knocks into the next.
FOX’s Shepard Smith Gives Up on Team Obama … “I Don’t Believe Much of Anything They Say Anymore” … “Honey Boo Boo Tells More Truths”
Barack Obama, They Lying King: WOW, Barack Obama … you know you lost when even Obama apologists like Shepard Smith finally gives up on you and your perpetual lies to the American people.
Looks like Shepard Smith has lost the tingly feeling up his leg as well. Shep Smith said on Studio B that he was fed up with the Obama administration and went off on them. Hey Shepard Smith, welcome to the world of reality that Obama and his minions LIE!!! Shep went on to say that he really can’t believe anything they say anymore. Did Shep finally have an epiphany that Obama was a divider, a liar, dodges the truth and is a community agitator? Really Shep, it took you 5 years to figure this out? It must be sad times for Shep Smith to suddenly realize that “Hope and Change” was a lie. Maybe the best line was, ” …there is nothing worth hearing … maybe Honey Boo Boo … She tells more truths”.
“It’s interesting to me. You know they government reads my email to my father. They know who I’m talking to on the phone. They know everything that is going on in the house. They have the government minders around now. But if you want to know what the charges are on somebody that attacked our embassy. Oh no, you can’t have that… I don’t believe much of anything they say anymore because I can’t figure out which parts to believe.”
Daily Commentary – Monday, August 5, 2013 – CNN and HLN See Their Ratings Plummet Post Zimmerman trial
- CNN and HLN Fall following post-Zimmerman trial, Fox News holds it’s own and remains top of the cable news
Tucker Carlson Says Al Sharpton And Jesse Jackson Are “Hustlers And Pimps Who Make A Living Off Inflaming Racial Tensions” During Interview with Geraldo Rivera (VIDEO)
During an interview this morning on Fox & Friends – Weekend, Geraldo Rivera said that this is how politics tainted the legal process, raised expectations in the minority community and now has added to the racial divide when the verdict came back not guilty. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara said that if George Zimmerman was black, he never would have been charged with a crime. Rivera went on to say that not all tragedies are crimes. The original prosecutors, the original police chief and officers did not believe a crime was committed. Rivera said that this was race politics, the president gave the signal and then Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton stirred things up.
Classic pic as Tucker gives Alisyn the are you friggin kidding me look as Rivera says he holds Sharpton & Jackson in high esteem. Might be worthy of a caption contest.
However, the classic bit of Geraldo’s ramblings was when he said that he held in high regard Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The look on Tucker Carlon and Alisyn Camerota’s face was priceless. That’s when Tucker Carlson said that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were “Hustlers and Pimps who make a living off inflaming racial tensions”
“I don’t know how I feel about George Zimmerman,” Carlson said (watch video here). “But I am positive that people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do not deserve to be called civil rights leaders. They are not. They are hustlers and pimps who make a living off inflaming racial tensions. They know nothing about this. They’re not residents of Florida. They don’t represent anybody, they’re not elected to anything, they don’t have constituencies. The only reason they’re allowed to do this is because we in the press enable them by calling them civil rights leaders. Why do we do that?”
Geraldo did not want to get into that debate, but conceded and made a powerful and honest comment … “you had 11 black kids killed last weekend in Chicago and 40 odd wounded. Where was the Reverend Sharpton? Where was the Reverend Jackson. That is the real civil rights crisis in urban American today. It is the gun violence run ramped. Black on black crime … What happens here is they went back to the old stereo-type black kid killed by cop, there is where the outrage is. And it is almost irresponsible …”
Actually, it is completely irresponsible.
Good Grief, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is a Bumbling Disgrace, Fox News Ed Henry Rips Him on Eric Holder’s Lies Under Oath to Congress
OBAMA’S WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY JUST HAS NO CREDIBILITY …
Today was the 4th of July come early as fireworks flew at the White House. Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry White House
spokesman spin doctor Jay Carney went at it like cats and dogs today during the White House press conference discussing Attorney General Eric Holder’s lies under oath. CBS reported, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday expressing “great concern” about the possibility that Holder lied under oath during his testimony earlier this month on the Justice Department’s seizing of journalists’ records. With three scandals going on simultaneously, it’s only a matter of time before some one takes the fall. The Obama administration has to do something to stop the political bleeding. The fact that Obama appointed Eric Holder to investigate Eric Holder only added fuel to the fire and made a complicit MSM raise an eye brow. Carney would say, “I don’t see the conflict”. Dude really? Stevie Wonder can see the conflict. It is hard to imagine this does not end with a Holder resignation.
Transcript from The Gateway Pundit:
Ed Henry: Was he not telling the truth at that point? He was involved in it.
Jay Carney: Involved in what?
Ed Henry: He signed off on the search warrant!… Are you not involved after you sign off on a search warrant?
Jay Carney: Again, I’ll refer you to the Justice Department. You guys are complaining that the subpoena with prosecution. Again… I would just point you to what the Attorney General said.
Major Garret: But is this a technical inaccuracy you’re holding onto?
Jay Carney: I’m not. I’m saying based on what I’ve seen in published reports and what the Attorney General said, I don’t see the conflict.
From CBS News, the White House defended Holder on Wednesday, with press secretary Jay Carney saying it was “self-evident” that Holder told the truth. “I think based on what he said, he testified truthfully,” Carney said. “The attorney general talked about prosecution,” he explained, while the case in question was completed with no further charges or prosecution slated. The truth? Carney, YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!! If Obama and his minions think that they are going to get away with parsing words and “it all dependes on what is, is” they are going to go down hard and the Democrat party in tow.
On May 15, Holder told the committee he wasn’t involved in “the potential prosecution” of a member of the press under the Espionage Act for disclosing classified information. “This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy,” he said.
Shortly thereafter, reports began to surface that the Justice Department, in addition to seizing telephone and email records of Associated Press reporters, had seized the the emails and phone records of Fox News correspondent James Rosen. While Holder had recused himself from the AP proceedings, the Washington Post reported that the attorney general had personally signed off on the search warrant for Rosen’s records.
In the search warrant, the FBI called Rosen a “criminal co-conspirator” and suggested there’s probable cause that he violated federal law. Rosen was not charged with any crime.
MSNBC Dead Last Among Cable Networks in Ratings Collapse … Rachel Maddow Show Has Lowest-Rated Month Since 2008 Debut
You mean people actually still watch
MSLSD MSNBS MSNBC … How Low Can They Go?
It certainly does not come as a surprise that MSNBC’s ratings have hit the skids. Only die hard libs watch the network and with the Obama scandals with Benghazi, AP/Rosen and the IRS, even the most hearty libs cannot seem to stomach watching their Obamamessiah go down in flames. Honestly, MSNBC has become unwatchable. I would sooner watch a 24 hour Honey Boo Boo marathon than have MSNBC programming inflicted upon me. Which is sad because I used to know folks there; however, they have long since gone. MSNBC is down during the day 346,000 total viewers, down 10% (115,000 in 25-54, down 7 percent). And during prime time, MSNBC at 539,000 total viewers, down 20%. What, you mean folks don’t want to watch shows like, The Morning Joe I used to be a Republican, Hard Ball with Chris “a tingle up my leg” Matthews, Politics Nation with Al “Race Baiter” Sharpton, All In with who cares, and Rachael Maddow? Say it isn’t so. At what point does MSNBC clean house?
What is even more stunning is that FOX cable has more views than there other three competitors combined.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Averaging 539,000 viewers in primetime and 175,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, MSNBC suffered double-digit drops from last May — down a respective 20 and 19 percent. Losses were less substantial in total day, down 10 percent to an average 346,000 viewers and down 7 percent to 115,000 adults 25-54, while all other nets pulled growth in multiple categories.
The soft start for All In With Chris Hayes has not helped. Hayes, down 32 percent in total viewers from The Ed Show last May, has offered a poor lead-in for MSNBC’s primetime flagship, The Rachel Maddow Show, at 9 p.m. The show delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in September 2008 (717,000 total viewers) and its second lowest with adults 25-54 (210,000). Maddow was topped by typical time slot victor Sean Hannity and CNN’s Piers Morgan.
Read the complete rankings, May 2013 versus May 2012, via Nielsen:
- Primetime FNC: 1,973,000 total viewers, up 17 percent
- CNN: 660,000 total viewers, up 70 percent
- MSNBC: 539,000 total viewers, down 20 percent
- HLN: 624,000 total viewers, up 91 percent
