  1. Coldest weather in Ohio in twenty years dominates the news.

    Brrrrr. Global what?

  2. -17 is my current temperature. Freaking crazy and I am ready for this to end!

  3. Can’t wait to hear the stories from all kinds of people once the big “O” is done with his term.

  4. “Can’t wait to hear the stories from all kinds of people once the big “O” is done with his term.”

    ^^ “anonymous White House person” (janitor?) says Obama is better campaigner than governor. Wow! Stop the presses.🙂

  5. MSNBC, the intellectual’s hang out? Well, maybe not.

    “26 percent of MSNBC viewers have a college degree, compared with 29 percent of all Americans.”

  6. Dennis Rodman returns from North Korea with some new tricks. Now taking the uncle he can’t stand over to Michael Vick’s house.

    Luke Russert was subbing for Chuck Todd.

    Chuck Todd ‏@chucktodd 15h
    About to board flight to Pasadena to fulfill 13yo promise to wife that if she went w/me to Miami title game, I’d go w/her to FSU title game

  8. ^^ “anonymous White House person” (janitor?) says Obama is better campaigner than governor. Wow! Stop the presses. ”

    Yep, even the janitor knows by now.

  9. A little something for “Republicans are doomed” talking points mouthers:

    Washington Examiner’s Michael Barone considers how the Hispanic vote in 2014: “Obama campaign strategists noted that [ObamaCare] was unpopular among voters generally but evoked very positive responses from Hispanics… Since the Obamacare rollout, Gallup’s numbers show that the president’s job approval has declined more among Hispanics — 23 percentage points — than among any other demographic group… The Obamacare rollout — just like the government programs that encouraged home mortgages for not necessarily creditworthy Hispanics — has not produced the favorable results they may have expected.”

  10. Chuck Todd was one of the ones who said last week that the Repubs are NOT in a good position for the 2014 elections.

  11. Grandpa Dave Says:

    The weather must be on everyone’s minds. The Weather Service local forecast (i.e. – http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?zoneid=ILZ014&zflg=1) website is bogging down as bad as myhealthcare.gov.

  12. icemannyr Says:

    The Weather Channel was live 4:30am-11pm Sunday and is back in storm mode today which means they are live 4am to at least 8pm if not 11pm again.

    Today we go from 43f to a low of 8 tonight and Tuesday.

  13. Will MSNBC’s Host Apology Streak End As Mitt Romney Accepts Latest Mea Culpa?

    “comics on news programs is always fraught with danger”

    Ezra never fails to disappoint:

    “The exchange numbers are solid. You can trust those.”

  15. savefarris Says:

    According to the White House, we should be on the lookout for “excessively high temperatures”.

    Amateur Hour.

  16. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    We are at -11, with a wind chill 0f -38. This winter is becoming just like the one of ’76-77, back when the scientific consensus was a coming Ice Age.

    And Obama can take his Executive Order and shove it.

  17. Not for the reasons she gave, but glad Liz Chaney dropped out of her Senate primary race:
    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/01/liz-cheney-wyoming-senate-race-101767.html?hp=f1
    We don’t need Republicans knocked off by each other. We need the Senate majority. Delaware ex-witches, this means you stay away.

  18. icemannyr Says:

    “Monday on ‘On the Record’
    ObamaCare under the microscope! We reveal the frightening truth about your coverage, doctor visits and your treatments.”

    Frightening truth? Really? What more negative things has Greta found that FNC has not yet reported on?

  19. savefarris Says:

    This should have gone in WHWN, but oh well: my favorite news moment of 2013: Name that Pilot

  20. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    Frightening truth? Really? What more negative things has Greta found that FNC has not yet reported on?

    It turns out that many doctors under Obamacare are veterinarians, do to too many M.D.’s quitting in frustration.

    This is what happens when you have eediots working in the News Department.

  22. A frightening truth is that many seniors with Medicare Advantage have found their hospital stay out of pocket maximum eliminated and maximum procedure costs raised from $125 each to $250 each and tier 2 prescription drug copay raised from $5 each per month to $15. ALL cuts because of Obamacare cutbacks to the program.

    At leat that was my frightening truth yesterday as i read my packet’s fine print.

    There’s much more to be revealed for sure. Keep it up FOX!

  23. My biggest hope is that all responsible for ObamaCare will be tarred and feathered on their way out of Washington.

  24. savefarris Says:

    This is what happens when you have eediots working in the News Department.

    To be fair to the news department, the NTSB CONFIRMED the names of the pilots. So the eediots aren’t just in the media, they’re in the government as well!!!

  25. MSNBC Disputes Report Rachel Maddow Influences Management, Personnel Decisions

    MSNBC is disputing a National Review Online report that suggests Rachel Maddow holds significant power in both network editorial vision and personnel decisions. “This is categorically false,” Rachel Maddow said. “I have never had any role in any management decision at MSNBC. Any source who says otherwise is wrong.” An MSNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser Maddow’s show keeps her busy. “Rachel has absolutely no role in network management decisions.”

  26. savefarris Says:

    ^ Rachel and Obama have something in common: “The buck stops over there!”

  27. Dylan Byers doesn’t like the FOX full page ad: “Fox News punches down at CNN, MSNBC” says he. “just a fun victory celebration”, says I.
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2014/01/fox-news-punches-down-at-cnn-msnbc-180639.html

  28. icemannyr Says:

    This the first time Dylan Byers has noticed FOX News being obnoxious about being the #1 cable news channel?😛

    They take out full page ads in the NY Times to promote FNC.

  29. icemannyr Says:

    FNC just ran a funny new promo for Hannity.
    VO Guy “Open debate and real dialog.” Yeah unless you are the liberal guest.😛
    Sorry the promo was to funny to not comment on it.

    FNC stopped using the creepy white text on a black background for their promos and they are back to more normal graphics.
    You can watch the photos on their schedule page,

  30. icemannyr Says:

    AC360 Later has returned to CNN. The first topic is the cold weather.

    AJA is talking about the violence in Iraq.

    FNC has Hannity talking about his conservative solutions for the country.

    MSNBC is talking about Obama vs Republicans in 2014.

    In the Hannity C block the classless Ann Coulter says MHP was really crying about her 4th quarter ratings.
    Keep up the nasty comments Ann.

    Keep up the nasty comments Ann.

    She’s probably closer to the real reason, than Harris-Perry’s stated reason. And, If you want to talk about classless, I seriously doubt that it would ever cross Coulter’s mind to wear tampon earrings.

  32. icemannyr Says:

    Hannity also bashed Melissa Harris-Perry calling her a “Liberal loud mouth”.
    So it’s ok for Hannity to tow the RNC line yelling a liberal guests daily on FNC but Perry is a “Liberal loud mouth” because she does not agree with his politics.

    In the MHP segment Hannity has to play old clips of Ed Shultz from Ed’s radio show because they have nothing to do with the topic.

  33. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    So it’s ok for Hannity to tow the RNC line yelling a liberal guests daily on FNC but Perry is a “Liberal loud mouth” because she does not agree with his politics.

    No, he was wrong. She’s a “Marxist loud mouth.”

  34. icemannyr Says:

    So you would have no problem if any MSNBC male host said that a female host on FNC was a “Conservative loud mouth”?

    I get Hannity not being a fan of MHP but he could choose his words better.

  35. I’d leave her alone to lick her wounds, but I’m a big softie.

  36. icemannyr Says:

    If there’s a culture at MSNBC that allows nasty comments about conservatives then there is a culture at FNC that allows O’Reilly and Hannity to talk down to their female guests.

  37. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    So you would have no problem if any MSNBC male host said that a female host on FNC was a “Conservative loud mouth”?

    Nope. But MSNBC hosts are known for going much lower. Bashir and Schultz, for example.

  38. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    If there’s a culture at MSNBC that allows nasty comments about conservatives then there is a culture at FNC that allows O’Reilly and Hannity to talk down to their female guests.

    There is a big difference between “talking down”, which O’Reilly does to everyone, and the vulgarity that MSNBC puts out.

  39. icemannyr Says:

    Agreed.

    It’s 25 °F going down to 6 °F. Tuesday the high is 10 °F and the low is 5 °F.

    TWC is back to their reality shows.😛

  40. Nixon - niila niihpikiiookwa meentwasiaani Says:

    Ice, we have been hanging around -11° all day, with wind chills getting as low as -42°. The wind has finally died down, but we still have 16″ of snow to deal with.

  41. -10 outside my place in Ohio
