We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Beware the Brit Humes in Your Office," blared the headline from another Huffington Post blogger. This one, penned by business columnist Eve Tahmincioglu, included the following passage: "The fact that a journalist -- and I use that term loosely as it pertains to Hume -- would go on a national news show and put down another high-profile individual's faith should tell all of us that religious bigotry, and bigotry as a whole, is a growing problem in this country."
Brit Hume is a damn fine journalist. I suspect that the reason he pulled out of Fox when he did was he knew that network management was moving away from good journalism and would not be on the same network with the likes of Glen Beck. Brit Hume is a JOURNALIST, this Evie is a fool. We have so few good journalists remaining in this country. It is interesting to consider the newspapers that have died. Typically they are in a two paper town, and the papers that close first are those that became an extension of the liberal agenda rather than staying true to the tradition.
I used to watch the 5pm Fox News almost every day when Brit Hume ran it. It's not as good now, though it's still a cut above CNN and WAY above the level of any of the other cable or broadcast news shows. I'll listen to Hume any time, anywhere, he wants to speak.
Fox runs some info-tainment-style programs, which I don't care for, but their straight 5pm news is worth watching.
