Meet "FAUX & Friends"
Steve Doocy serves as one of Faux News Channel’s (FNC) co-anchors for its top-rated morning show "Faux & Friends," as well as the network's weather forecaster. A graduate of the University of Kansas, Doocy began his career as a feature reporter at WRC-TV (NBC) in Washington, D.C. He is also the author of The New York Times bestseller The Mr. and Mrs. Happy Handbook (2006.)
Gretchen Carlson joined Faux News Channel (FNC) as an anchor in June 2005. Carlson is co-anchor of the network's live morning show and cable's number one morning program, "Faux & Friends." In 1989, before starting her television career, she was the first classical violinist to be crowned Miss America. In 1990, Carlson graduated with honors from Stanford University and also studied at Oxford University in England.
Brian Kilmeade serves as co-host of FNC's irreverent morning program, "Faux & Friends," in addition to serving as the network's sports reporter. A graduate of Long Island University, Kilmeade began his career as a correspondent on "Channel One," a daily national high school television news program. Interestingly, "Channel One" has leaned left of center since its inception in 1989. Perhaps Kilmeade fell out of a window at "Channel One" and landed on his head before he moved to the Faux News Channel.
Today, Tom Tomorrow savages this trio of loons for their kid gloves treatment of the owner of the Faux News Channel and his current troubles across the pond.
If this is a (fair & balanced) exposure of fraudulent "journalism," so be it.
