FOX News Meteorologist Takes to Twitter to Voice Frustration Over The View

“I came on the show two years ago to promote ‘Mostly Sunny’ and it went very well, so I can only guess why they kept saying no this time,” Dean tweeted.

Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean is blaming politics for several failed attempts to try and promote her book on ABC’s The View. Dean took to Twitter to express her frustrations on Tuesday.  

“I came on the show two years ago to promote ‘Mostly Sunny’ and it went very well, so I can only guess why they kept saying no this time.”

Dean has been an outspoken voice against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who is under fire for falsifying nursing home deaths during the COVID pandemic.

“I would’ve never spoken out about not being invited back on the show, but seeing how the hosts — with exception to Meghan McCain — continue to downplay all the deaths in New York nursing homes and the other scandals surrounding Governor Cuomo made me furious,” Dean told Fox News.

She noted co-hosts Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar are regularly bashing Republican governors such as Florida’s Ron DeSantis and Texas’ Greg Abbott over coronavirus but haven’t had much to say about Cuomo.  

A spokesperson for “The View” declined comment when reached by Fox News.

After a defamation lawsuit was brought by voting machine company Smartmatic against conservative cable outlet OAN in 2021, the case has been settled.

An attorney for the right-wing outlet stated “The case has been resolved pursuant to a confidential agreement,” on Tuesday afternoon, according to a report from CNN’s Oliver Darcy.

After the 2020 presidential election was won by Joe Biden, conservative media organizations like Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN made claims or allowed claims from guests and contributors suggesting that companies like Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems had tampered with and interfered with the election. Famously, Dominion won a $787.5 million settlement from Fox News for its false claims.

While it has settled with OAN, Smartmatic is still in the midst of litigation against Fox News and Newsmax, as well as other pro-Trump figures.

The lawsuit is the latest settled by the network. In September of last year, it came to terms to end a lawsuit brought by former Dominion Voting Systems executive Eric Coomer.

CNN is ending its weekly King Charles program helmed by Gayle King and Charles Barkley after just six months.

The show — which aired Wednesdays at 10 PM ET — failed to produce the strong ratings the network hoped would follow the high-profile hosts.

According to metrics from Nielsen, the show debuted in November and was the lowest-rated primetime weekday series debut for CNN in a decade. Unfortunately for the network, viewership fell 20% since the debut, with one late January episode failing to hit 100,000 viewers in the 25-54 demographic.

The program was championed by former CNN CEO Chris Licht, who was fired last year after a magazine profile in The Atlantic called his ability to lead the organization going forward into question. Despite his ouster, CNN continued with the idea of the program led by Gayle King and Charles Barkley in hopes of increased ratings as it struggled in primetime against competitors like Fox News and MSNBC.

The news of the demise of King Charles wasn’t completely unexpected. When it began last fall, CNN shared that the program was expected to run through “early spring.”

In total, the 14-episode run the program featured saw an average audience of 459,000 viewers, with 106,000 resting in the 25-54 demographic, according to the New York Post.

Fox News’ Jessica Tarlov: I Never Feel Disrespected on The Five

“I can’t actually remember a time I was genuinely offended or upset by something that went on during the show.”

Jessica Tarlov has one of the most difficult jobs at Fox News: she’s the dissenting liberal voice on the network’s popular afternoon show The Five.

In an interview with USA Today, Tarlov admitted that while she may take grief from social media users, she knows she has a role to play and has to straddle a fine line.

“There are a lot of people, and they’re especially loud on…X, who are not fans of mine,” Tarlov said. “But you don’t want to come off as shrill, like every single thing a conservative says you automatically have the opposite opinion of.”

She continued by noting that while there have been some strong arguments with other panelists on the show, she never takes comments to heart.

“Overall, it’s been an incredibly positive experience for me,” Tarlov added. “I have a pretty thick skin. I can’t actually remember a time I was genuinely offended or upset by something that went on during the show. And I think that even though some viewers might not necessarily see it that way, I don’t actually find the interactions to be disrespectful.”

The 40-year-old commentator added that she feels like she could “go on forever” in the role.

The Five has become a ratings juggernaut for Fox News in the early afternoon window. The show — often helmed by Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, Jeanine Pirro, Tarlov, and Dana Perino — has at times finished as the most-watched program on cable news.
