The Leftists and Democrats are overjoyed. Fox News has fired Bill O’Reilly and rehired Bob Beckel. O’Reilly is an expert, facts-based, political analyst and commentator. Beckel is a Leftist, grumbling, political idiot.
I stopped watching THE FIVE when Beckel returned. With THE FIVE moving to the 9-o’clock time slot, it is probably doomed.
As a businessman and political junkie, it is difficult to understand why the number one ranked TV network and program schedule would destroy itself. They have lost Beck, Greta, Megyn, and O’Reilly! If I were Rupert Murdoch, I’d terminate James Murdoch, who clearly doesn’t know what he is doing.
One of the biggest communication problem with many TV newscasts is the commentary offered by guest journalists – often writers.
Apparently, reading their copy from a monitor, with a limited amount of time, they blast out long sentences and long, multi-idea dissertations (paragraphs) that are often difficult to follow. Unlike reading, where long complicated sentences and paragraphs can be reread and/or dissected . . . a verbal commentary of the same material cannot be easily or quickly reviewed.
Professional TV and Radio commentators – like Rush, O’Reilly. Hannity, Varney, Levin, etc. – normally do not make these communication mistakes. They apply the KISS Principal: KEEP IT SHORT AND SIMPLE. And the average listener can get it . . . understand it.
I like the Stewart Varney 3-hour news show on Fox Business News from 9 to 12 in the morning. They discuss the news and issues of the day at a rational, easy to understand pace.
Similarly, my favorite Fox News personalities pursue — or pursued before they got dumped — this approach.
Clearly, the Leftist media and Democrats are trying to bring down FOX NEWS and are succeeding! The network has reportedly bought into the Leftist’s smear campaign and lost Bill O’Reilly – one of the nation’s leading news analysts. That’s a huge mistake. They have lost many of their diversified, interesting and informative analysts and commentators, who are now being replaced with novices who report the same stuff over and over. Only Hannity is left but is buried at 10:00 o’clock. And, as I noted above, THE FIVE – with Beckel induced stupidity – has been plugged in at 9:00!
Obviously, the accusatory women and their lawyers are seeking fame and fortune . . . and I fear Fox has foolishly played into their hands. Settling out of court is a mistake . . . and only serves to bring on more leaches – greedy women and lawyers, turning traditional male-female verbal and visual interaction into a money-making racket. And the ladies will continue to use their plunging necklines and skimpy skirts as male bait.
I don’t know about you, but with the exception of Hannity, I’ll be looking for some competent, experienced, objective analysts and commentators – Rush, Ingraham, Varney, etc. – and perhaps O’Reilly on another network.
Thank the Lord for my DVD recorders!
