Fox News drops 'fair and balanced' slogan without announcement

Daryl Cagle

Fox News has dropped its slogan "fair and balanced".

An executive told CNN that the decision had "nothing to do with programming or editorial decisions".

Last August, producers were asked to use the slogan "Most watched, most trusted" instead but there has been no official announcement of the change.

Gabriel Sherman, the journalist, who broke the story tweeted that the slogan had been an "iconic tagline of the Roger Ailes era".

Mr Ailes, the founder and ex-chairman of Fox News, resigned last year after female employees made sexual harassment allegations against him, and died last month aged 77.

Fox News is arguably the most powerful voice in conservative media in the US.

President Donald Trump regularly quotes the channel in his frequent Twitter statements.

Never forget what your HERO did you lefty hypocrites!!!

We'll never forget what Bill Clinton did. Thanks for raising the issue. 8)

Longest economic expansion in American history
The President's strategy of fiscal discipline, open foreign markets and investments in the American people helped create the conditions for a record 115 months of economic expansion. Our economy has grown at an average of 4 percent per year since 1993.

More than 22 million new jobs
More than 22 million jobs were created in less than eight years -- the most ever under a single administration, and more than were created in the previous twelve years.

Highest homeownership in American history
A strong economy and fiscal discipline kept interest rates low, making it possible for more families to buy homes. The homeownership rate increased from 64.2 percent in 1992 to 67. 7 percent, the highest rate ever.

Lowest unemployment in 30 years
Unemployment dropped from more than 7 percent in 1993 to just 4.0 percent in November 2000. Unemployment for African Americans and Hispanics fell to the lowest rates on record, and the rate for women is the lowest in more than 40 years.

Raised education standards, increased school choice, and doubled education and training investment
Since 1992, reading and math scores have increased for 4th, 8th, and 12th graders, math SAT scores are at a 30-year high, the number of charter schools has grown from 1 to more than 2,000, forty-nine states have put in place standards in core subjects and federal investment in education and training has doubled.

Largest expansion of college opportunity since the GI Bill
President Clinton and Vice President Gore have nearly doubled financial aid for students by increasing Pell Grants to the largest award ever, expanding Federal Work-Study to allow 1 million students to work their way through college, and by creating new tax credits and scholarships such as Lifetime Learning tax credits and the HOPE scholarship. At the same time, taxpayers have saved $18 billion due to the decline in student loan defaults, increased collections and savings from the direct student loan program.

Connected 95 percent of schools to the Internet
President Clinton and Vice President Gore's new commitment to education technology, including the E-Rate and a 3,000 percent increase in educational technology funding, increased the percentage of schools connected to the Internet from 35 percent in 1994 to 95 percent in 1999.

Lowest crime rate in 26 years
Because of President Clinton's comprehensive anti-crime strategy of tough penalties, more police, and smart prevention, as well as common sense gun safety laws, the overall crime rate declined for 8 consecutive years, the longest continuous drop on record, and is at the lowest level since 1973.

100,000 more police for our streets
As part of the 1994 Crime Bill, President Clinton enacted a new initiative to fund 100,000 community police officers. To date more than 11,000 law enforcement agencies have received COPS funding.

Enacted most sweeping gun safety legislation in a generation
Since the President signed the Brady bill in 1993, more than 600,000 felons, fugitives, and other prohibited persons have been stopped from buying guns. Gun crime has declined 40 percent since 1992.

Family and Medical Leave Act for 20 million Americans
To help parents succeed at work and at home, President Clinton signed the Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993. Over 20 million Americans have taken unpaid leave to care for a newborn child or sick family member.

Smallest welfare rolls in 32 years
The President pledged to end welfare as we know it and signed landmark bipartisan welfare reform legislation in 1996. Since then, caseloads have been cut in half, to the lowest level since 1968, and millions of parents have joined the workforce. People on welfare today are five times more likely to be working than in 1992.

Higher incomes at all levels
After falling by nearly $2,000 between 1988 and 1992, the median family's income rose by $6,338, after adjusting for inflation, since 1993. African American family income increased even more, rising by nearly $7,000 since 1993. After years of stagnant income growth among average and lower income families, all income brackets experienced double-digit growth since 1993. The bottom 20 percent saw the largest income growth at 16.3 percent.

Lowest poverty rate in 20 years
Since Congress passed President Clinton's Economic Plan in 1993, the poverty rate declined from 15.1 percent to 11.8 percent last year — the largest six-year drop in poverty in nearly 30 years. There are now 7 million fewer people in poverty than in 1993. The child poverty rate declined more than 25 percent, the poverty rates for single mothers, African Americans and the elderly have dropped to their lowest levels on record, and Hispanic poverty dropped to its lowest level since 1979.

Lowest teen birth rate in 60 years
In his 1995 State of the Union Address, President Clinton challenged Americans to join together in a national campaign against teen pregnancy. The birth rate for teens aged 15-19 declined every year of the Clinton Presidency, from 60.7 per 1,000 teens in 1992 to a record low of 49.6 in 1999.

Lowest infant mortality rate in American history
The Clinton Administration expanded efforts to provide mothers and newborn children with health care. Today, a record high 82 percent of all mothers receive prenatal care. The infant mortality rate has dropped from 8.5 deaths per 1,000 in 1992 to 7.2 deaths per 1,000 in 1998, the lowest rate ever recorded.

Deactivated more than 1,700 nuclear warheads from the former Soviet Union
Efforts of the Clinton-Gore Administration led to the dismantling of more than 1,700 nuclear warheads, 300 launchers and 425 land and submarine based missiles from the former Soviet Union.

Protected millions of acres of American land
President Clinton has protected more land in the lower 48 states than any other president. He has protected 5 new national parks, designated 11 new national monuments and expanded two others and proposed protections for 60 million acres of roadless areas in America's national forests.

Paid off $360 billion of the national debt
Between 1998-2000, the national debt was reduced by $363 billion — the largest three-year debt pay-down in American history. We are now on track to pay off the entire debt by 2009.

Converted the largest budget deficit in American history to the largest surplus
Thanks in large part to the 1993 Deficit Reduction Act, the 1997 Balanced Budget Act, and President Clinton's call to save the surplus for debt reduction, Social Security, and Medicare solvency, America has put its fiscal house in order. The deficit was $290 billion in 1993 and expected to grow to $455 billion by this year. Instead, we have a projected surplus of $237 billion.

Lowest government spending in three decades
Under President Clinton federal government spending as a share of the economy has decreased from 22.2 percent in 1992 to a projected 18.5 percent in 2000, the lowest since 1966.

Lowest federal income tax burden in 35 years
President Clinton enacted targeted tax cuts such as the Earned Income Tax Credit expansion, $500 child tax credit, and the HOPE Scholarship and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits. Federal income taxes as a percentage of income for the typical American family have dropped to their lowest level in 35 years.

More families own stock than ever before
The number of families owning stock in the United States increased by 40 percent since 1992.

Most diverse cabinet in American history
The President has appointed more African Americans, women and Hispanics to the Cabinet than any other President in history. He appointed the first female Attorney General, the first female Secretary of State and the first Asian American cabinet secretary ever.

Eric Bolling suspended from Fox News amid lewd texting scandal

Image

Fox News said Saturday that host Eric Bolling will be suspended from air "pending the results of an investigation" into whether he sent lewd photos to co-workers, a network spokesperson confirmed to CNNMoney.

The show Bolling typically hosts on Saturdays, "Cashin' In," did not air.

News of the suspension came one day after HuffPost published a story saying more than a dozen sources confirmed that Bolling had sent female colleagues an "unsolicited" photo of his genitals.

Bolling's attorney said he denies the claims.

Eric Bolling out at Fox News after report of lewd text messages

Image

Fox News host Eric Bolling is leaving the network on the heels of a report that he had sent lewd text messages to female colleagues.

In a statement on Friday, Fox said that it was canceling "The Specialists," the late afternoon talk show co-hosted by Bolling that launched earlier this year, and that it had agreed to part with him "amicably."

"We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck," the statement said.

The news arrived on the same day that Charles Payne, a host on Fox's sister network Fox Business, will return to his job following an investigation into his own alleged sexual misconduct. Payne has denied the allegations against him.

Bolling's alleged behavior was detailed last month in a story published by HuffPost. He denied those allegations and later sued the reporter who wrote the HuffPost story, Yashar Ali.

Bolling did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Bolling is just the latest high-profile Fox employee to leave the company amid damning allegations. In April, Fox sacked its top-rated host Bill O'Reilly after dozens of advertisers fled his show over the revelation that he and the network had paid millions in settlements to women who accused him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. (O'Reilly, now hosting a show that is broadcast on his website, has consistently denied those allegations.)

Nearly a year before O'Reilly's ouster, the late Fox co-founder Roger Ailes was forced out of the network amid an avalanche of sexual harassment allegations, which he denied.

Eric Bolling's son dies hours after father loses Fox News job

Image

Eric Bolling's son Eric Chase died on Friday night, just hours after his father lost a high-profile job at the Fox News Channel.

The cause of death has not been announced. According to a family friend, an autopsy will not take place until Monday.

Eric Chase Bolling was starting his second year at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It is unclear if he died on or off campus. Local authorities did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNN.

His parents learned of the death late Friday night and flew to Colorado on Saturday morning.

Eric Bolling confirmed the heart-wrenching news in a tweet.

"Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear," Bolling wrote. "Thoughts, prayers appreciated."

In a second tweet, Bolling said that an autopsy would be conducted next week. "Authorities have informed us there is no sign of self harm at this point. ... Please respect our grieving period," he wrote.

The family friend said the Bollings are in a profound state of shock. Eric was their only child.

Eric Bolling sometimes talked lovingly about his son on Fox News. Bolling, a former trader, joined Fox Business Network in 2007 and later jumped to Fox News, where he became one of the channel's best-known conservative hosts. In his appearances on the 5 p.m. talk show "The Five," he cheered on Donald Trump's campaign for president. He also wrote a pro-Trump book called "The Swamp."

Trump's sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump expressed their condolences in separate messages on Twitter. "I am so sorry for your loss. I know how devoted you were to your son. I cannot fathom how difficult this must be," Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.

When "The Five" was moved to 9 p.m. last spring, Bolling stayed on at 5 p.m. as the leader of a new show called "The Specialists."

He signed a multi-year contract in June. He parted ways with Fox News in August after an investigation into allegations, first reported by HuffPost, that Bolling had sent female colleagues an "unsolicited" lewd photo.

Bolling moved to sue the HuffPost reporter and vowed to fight the claims, which he called "false smear attacks."

"I look forward to clearing my name" as soon as possible, he said.

Fox announced his departure around 4:30 p.m. on Friday. Fox said it happened "amicably." "The Specialists" was canceled.

Sources at Fox said staffers were shaken up about the sudden death.

"We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Eric Bolling's son," the network said in a statement. "Eric Chase was a wonderful young man and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bolling family."

Bolling's former colleagues and other journalists also expressed condolences.

"So awful. My heart goes out to Eric and his family," CNN's Don Lemon tweeted.

"Overwhelmed by the news of Eric Bolling's son," Fox contributor Katie Pavlich tweeted. "How absolutely horrific and devastating."

Fox host compares 9/11 memorial to Confederate monuments

Image

In an interview with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade alluded to a memorial for passengers of United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Zinke was slated to speak.

"Do you worry that 100 years from now someone is going to take that memorial down like they are trying remake our memorials today?" Kilmeade asked, referring to the recent controversies that have led to the removal of statues for Confederate military leaders like Robert E. Lee.

"I'm one that believes we should learn from history and I think our monuments are part of our country's history," Zinke replied. "We can learn from it. Since we don't put up statues of Jesus, everyone is going to fall morally short. And I think reflecting on our history, both good and bad, is a powerful statement and part of our DNA. So I'm an advocate of, again, learning from our monuments, understanding the period they were made. But also, we live in a great country and monuments are not Republican, Democrat, independent. The monuments are a tribute to all of us."

Why Shepard Smith's debunking of Clinton-uranium deal theory left Fox News viewers enraged

Image

Some viewers are calling for Fox News anchor Shepard Smith “to go” while others are basically saying “way to go” after he spent several minutes on his show Tuesday debunking a conspiracy theory surrounding a sale of uranium to Russians while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

Smith said the theory that then-candidate Donald Trump repeatedly shared during the 2016 campaign — one purporting that investors in a uranium sale approved by Clinton’s state department funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation in a quid pro quo deal — is “inaccurate in a number of ways.”

For one, Smith said, Clinton’s state department had no authority to veto or approve such a transaction and that, instead, it was approved by an interagency committee — the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States — made up of members of nine government agencies, including the state department.
