I have no idea about Bill Hemmer, but the axing of those three, IMO, is a huge step in the positive direction.

I just have very little tolerance for people screaming at each other like children at a playground. Talk about disrespect for discourse.

The Situation Room is a cartoon. was i supposed to feel like president of the world being briefed on 'situations' around the globe? that is how wolf made me feel.

I used to walk crossfire but I didn't really like it. It was just political banter.

I agree with Jon Stewart. Shows like that are hurting America.

Now I'm really getting confused.

There's the Anderson Cooper show hosted by Heidi Collins, then Paula Zahn anchors on the Aaron Brown show.....what's next....Wolf filling in for Larry King?

Half the time I don't know what show I'm watching....why don't they just call it the News Hour?

I've stopped watching 360. It's just not the same when Anderson isn't hosting.

"ICN has learned that Bill Hemmer will debut on Fox News Channel this Monday, August 29th in the 12pm EST hour of Fox News Live"

At least I can see that cutie again but FOX? How could he? I thought it might be Court TV because he dates Kimberly Newsom

Rumor is that Aaron Brown will be dumped too.

Personally, I'd be happy if every single "opinion" show that debuted within the past 10 yrs on ANY station was scrapped. Becuase what it has led to is the Ceasarean Rome-ing of the masses. F#*$($ng bread and circuses. If the news is not entertaining, it is one big yawn. We expect our news to come with big popcorn and junk food buckets of talking point "debate." If it was possible to bring back Uncle Walter, the audience would do the equivalent of throwing tomatoes at him and booing him off the stage while munching on their popcorn.

I don't remember being bored with the news until the tabloidization of it taught me to be bored. Certainly, as a kid, "Nightline" didn't leave me bored or feeling bereft. I'd rather eat Shredded Wheat newswise these days, when so much is imjportant is going on, than sugar-laced, teeth rotting crap (fill in sugared cereal of your choice.) It may taste good, but it rots your teeth in the long run (your brain). In the end, we have all been dumbed down. It's sad when I have to go on foreign news sites to find out what's happening with international news.

It's product placement infotainment that gets played in high schools during homeroom.

I remember it during high school. Lisa Ling was also on it. I'm glad that both she and Anderson Cooper ran far away from it.

Yeah, Democrat, I like my trans-fat laden bucket of popcorn as much as anyone else. Fortunately, I realize the stuff was threatening to rot my brain, so I went on Bill O' Reilly Anonymous.

There's omly so much an intelligent, college-educated mind can take before it implodes.

BTW...I read on another thread that even FOX has negative comments about the Iraqi Constitution? I don't watch Fox anymore. What ecactly are they saying? I'd love to know, but the talking heads on that channel give me the heebie jeebs these days.
