“I think we all know what’s going on there [at Fox News],” CNN chief Jeff Zucker told the crowd Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “The Republican Party is being run out of News Corp. headquarters [and] masquerading as a channel.”

RNC chairman Reince Priebus was quick to disagree, tweeting that the Republican Party speaks for itself. Leave it to Piers Morgan to troll Priebus, asking if Fox News boss Roger Ailes had approved the tweet.


Earlier in the week, Ailes had taken a shot at CNN, telling The Hollywood Reporter that the network had “thrown in the towel” when it comes to news. Ailes noted that CNN and Zucker “had a big hit with a whale one night [the documentary Blackfish]. I guess he’s going to do whales a lot. If I were Discovery, I’d be worried.”

Listen up, Zucker and Ailes: this is how things really are.

    Actually, “MSNBC leans crazy” is not, strictly speaking, a completely accurate statement– they DO, as they claim, “Lean Forward!”; in fact, so much so, they are bent at the waist and grabbing their ankles…

      You mean the Establishment Republican Party? Yes.
      Long live the new Republican Party.

        Yes. The rinos can’t hear the thundering herd coming for them.

      As evidenced by the post-Obamacare launch polls, right?

    • lainer51

      The “Barry love-fest party” IS DEAD, CNN, MSslobber&droolNBC and friends just don’t know it yet

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Gee Reince, the GOP may speak for its self, but it doesn’t seem to speak for its constituents very well. Toad.
    I do find it humorous that the DNC shills at CNN and MSNBC are calling out Fox for being in the tank for anyone tho. That takes big hairy balls.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      Which they don’t have.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        They have the cajonies to say it, just not to carry it thru.

        Have you SEEN Maddow’s show?

        • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

          Nope.. Is that a someone that is Mad? We do NOT have anything on any of our media sources that has that which begins with an M…

          And just in case you might want to know why we don’t play the stock market…it’s because we don’t have stock in Bleach or Disinfectants…

        • Scott Anderson

          That is one scary dude.

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        and after MSNBC declares it will actually triple down on the left wing crazy…. But Pucker thinks FOX is the problem child?

        It must really suck for him that people exist on this planet who are center right…. just kills him inside…

        • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

          U bet.

        • Paige Jackson

          I wish it did.

        • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

          Most definitely.

    • Pat

      unfortunately the gop does not have those kinds of balls, actually they don’t have any, missing their spines also.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        The establishment GOP needs to go. No guts, no glory. The young bucks are the future of the party. Balls and spine. The complete set.

    I wish Reince’s party spoke for Conservatives and hadn’t turned into liberal-lite.

  • bill_a_bob

    Hey Reince, we’re the Tea Party and we speak for ourselves, pal. Tell rove and his demonic minions were coming for them this year. I bet you have a lotta room in your empty al gore lockbox lunch pail. Have fun operating on no cash. have a nice day!

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Really, Reince? We believe you need to do some real work on your Establishment Elitist Republicans… Chambliss changed his story from 2012 to 2013…

    Senator Saxby Chambliss – (R – GA)

    Source: http://www.msnbc.com
    By Drew Katchen
    Chambliss: Amb. Rice didn’t lie, but put ‘softer touch’ on Benghazi facts
    12:39 PM—Updated 11/07/13 09:09 PM

    Source: thehill.com
    See full article sourced below:

    “I’m not saying she lied, I’m just saying she didn’t tell [the truth],” Chambliss said on MSNBC. “She put a softer touch on what the real facts were. That’s not lying.”

    We called the senator’s office, whom had not announced that he was retiring at the time of his appearance on MSNBC interview and asked the question, of his telephone answering service in D.C., was he not a lawyer before he became a senator? His office aid responded, “Yes”. We then asked, had he been drinking before he went on MSNBC, to make such a stupid statement…”I’m not saying she lied, I’m just saying she didn’t tell [the truth],” She attempted to admonish, the question asked, as in “I will not answer that question”. As in how dare you ask such a question of The Senator.

    And this all was around the same time horizon, that the Senate chummies, had been out Yachting and Drinking on their Yacht “The Black Tie”…

    Rinse, like the rest of the Karl Rove Republicans are pushing hard for amnesty and dissing the Tea Party. Screw U Rinse.

  • Clete Torres

    You may speak for ‘them,’ Rinse, but don’t ever think you speak for us.

    We true conservatives speak for ourselves.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      T h e WINNER! Up Vote A Gazillion Times!

    • Marla Hughes

      He didn’t say he spoke for you. He said he speaks for the Republican Party. Which he does. It’s his job. Oh, and you don’t speak for all conservatives, either. I am one and can speak for myself. :-)

      • Clete Torres

        Hence the ‘we, and ‘ourselves.’ Or didn’t your computer show those words?

        • Marla Hughes

          I saw the words. I also saw you make the claim to be a ‘true conservative’, which I find amusing.
          In addition, your statement implies that Reince Priebus is trying to speak for you. I was clarifying for you that if you’re not a member of the GOP, he was not and if you are, that’s his job. I thought you might have issues with critical reading skills, but was too polite to inquire.

          • Clete Torres

            Glad you’re amused. Get back to me when your up votes equal or surpass your comment count. Cheers.

          • Marla Hughes

            Like I care who approves of my opinion or not.

          • Clete Torres

            Yet you couldn’t not reply.

    Funny how the snarky comments about approval from above came from people whose channels get permission on what to report from the White House…

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Journo-lista’s unite…. When it’s well known the WH co-ordinates it’s coverage with every major network anchor by phone.. it takes gall of epic proportions to accuse the RNC of doing the same..

      Even if they tried, the next anchor report would be on how the RNC was trying to rig coverage in their favor..

      which they blindly do on command for the democrats.

      They’re running a stealth one party state controlled media war…. and FOX is the last one they haven’t stormed the barricades on,…. the rest didn’t only surrender, they dropped their pants and grabbed their ankles with a smile..

      This AG and president lied to a federal judge to ransack reporters files…

      and the whole MSM just shrugged…

      No outrage at all about “journalistic independence”.. none.. they simply, meekly, submitted..

      but we’re supposed to respect them?

      I’ll respect this media when they adopt EQUAL standards for everyone.. and so far, being a democrat is a license to steal.

  • Scott Anderson

    Fox leans left too. But less left than the rest. I can barely watch fox now.

  • bill_a_bob

    Reince, you make me long for Michael Steele!

    • Clete Torres

      Not in a million years. He was the definition of incompetent.

  • robert anthony

    “Did Roger approve this?”…Hey, Piers, based on your ratings, NOONE approves anything on MSNBC.

  • Paul C.

    Hey Piers, isn’t MSNBC screening all data because of idiots like you and a few others??

  • stuckinIL4now

    All well and good Reince to tell CNN to go pound sand, but when is the Republican Party gonna shut up and DO something–like stand up for the Conservative principles upon which the party was founded?

  • Electradivine

    The GOP and the right are a disaster right now, such a shame

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Based on what? Their opposition to Obamacare?

      • John Ansell

        Based on their push for Amnesty. Based on their votes for CR’s. Based on their lack of fight for family values. Based on their lack of fight to get to the bottom of all the major scandals. Based on their willingness to fight a base of the party known as the TEA Party. Based on their lack of fight against Reid, Pelosi, Boxer. Based on their lack of fight to take out Dick Durbin. Do I need to go on? It saddens me.

  • notenoughtime

    The liberals are a crazy, delusional bunch to call out Fox for what they have been doing on a daily basis. So much so they each compare their talking points and phrases in order to be in unison. Whether the mainstream media news outlets or CNN and MSNBC, they stories are presented in the same way, same visuals, same talking points and same targets.

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    Wow getting their butt kicked in the ratings by a non news cable network like MSNBC really brings out the worst in these tabloid beta males.

    Nothing pleases me more than when someone like Zucker shows the world how somebody else has touched a nerve. Just the immaturish way he made his accusation and the rediculous nature of it proves he knows he is floundering with that network. Again.
