    Fox News Channel launched exactly 25 years ago on October 7, 1996 and the network will celebrate the milestone throughout Thursday. Check back throughout the day for more clips marking the anniversary. When Rupert Murdoch announced his vision for Fox News Channel only nine months before it launched, FOX had seen phenomenal growth in entertainment programming, children’s content and in sports offerings, but the company lacked a relevant news organization.  While Murdoch expected success for the costly venture, critics weren't exactly confident the upstart network would succeed. Some cable providers initially refused to even carry Fox News and reporters openly questioned if there was an appetite for another all-news station.  Rupert Murdoch announced his vision for Fox News Channel a few months before it launched in 1996.  "Very few people thought we would succeed," Brit Hume said, noting that New York Times writer Bill Carter once mocked Fox News as Murdoch’s "imaginary friend."  However, a quarter-century later Fox News has a lot to celebrate and recently finished the third quarter of 2021 as the most-watched network in all of basic cable among...
    Fox News Channel unveiled its newly renovated Washington, D.C., bureau this week with a special ceremony as it marks 25 years on the air. FOX Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News Media President Jay Wallace, and Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott attended the ribbon-cutting Thursday for the state-of-the-art, all-digital newsroom. "For those of you like myself, who have worked here for 25 years, it's kind of extraordinary to think that next week we will be celebrating the 25 years of Fox News Channel," Scott said. "So it makes complete sense to start here today to kick off that celebration with a celebration of each of you. When a group of us in New York started thinking about how do we want to celebrate the anniversary, I said it's about just a few things, very simple. It's about the team both on and off the air that have kept us successful and going, like Lachlan said during the last 18 months, it's been extraordinary and it's about the audience and respect for the audience. " Fox News Channel unveiled...
    A ship above the water. David Morris, a 52-year-old property developer, took this incredible photo while walking on English Channel Beach in southwest England. The photo, which was posted on his Facebook account, went viral on social media last weekend. No, this is not a photo gallery, but a fact that is visible to our eyes. A distorted reality, of course, is that, contrary to appearance, the boat actually floats in the sea. This is a “high channel water” that can be explained by the temperature inversion phenomenon. Normally, cold air stands above hot air (which is cooler at altitude). On this sunny morning, the event turned upside down: cold air was seen trapped in the ocean, warm air above. As a result of looking at an object located below the horizon, special atmospheric conditions that bend light … otherwise “float” like this particular thing. These optical effects are very rare in our latitudes, but occur more frequently in the Arctic. In this region of the north of the world, temperature differences between sea and air often cause a...
    College football may have lost one rivalry when Ohio State vs. Michigan was canceled, but there’s still an all-time great rivalry remaining with Navy taking on Army for the 121st time. This year’s game will be held at West Point after previously being scheduled to take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Pennsylvania would not allow any family or Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen to attend, so the schools changed location. This marks the first time since World War II (1943) that the game will be held on the campus of one of the academies. Around 10,000 people are expect to fill Michie Stadium. Last year Navy defeated Army 31-7 in Philadelphia and holds a 7-3 advantage in the last 10 head-to-head matchups against Army. Both teams run a triple-option offense, so don’t expect much passing. Army is expected to start Tyhier Tyler at quarterback who has completed just one pass this season, while Navy is expected to start freshman Xavier Arline. He would be just the fifth freshman quarterback to every start for the Midshipmen against Army....
    (CBS Local)– It’s been almost 50 years since the Vietnam War ended and it is still one of the most fascinating times in our nation’s history to examine. While many studied the war in school or have family members who served overseas, one of the overlooked groups of people in the narrative about the war are the U.S. Air Force pilots. A new special from the Smithsonian Channel called “100 Missions: Surviving Vietnam” airs on Monday, November 9 at 8 p.m. EST/PST and it follows a special group of U.S. Air Force fighter pilots who put their lives on the line for the country. Dr. Michael Hankins, who is a curator of U.S. Air Force history, is one of the people interviewed in the special and he believes the stories of these pilots will resonate deeply with the audience.

    In July, as federal troops were confronting demonstrators in Portland, Oregon, longtime 9News meteorologist Marty Coniglio tweeted a photo that compared the action to Nazi Germany. A fixture on the channel's popular morning show, he was off the air the next day...for good. This week, Coniglio explained why he did what he did in a column for Westword, which starts with this: "Better to be a good American than a good employee. Distilled to its most elemental expression, that is the reason why I blew up a 35-year career in broadcast media to add my voice to the alarms sounding about the current state of our Republic." You can read Marty Coniglio's complete piece here (and see the Tweet below). Thousands of people did, and posted more than a hundred comments on the Westword Facebook page, most applauding the longtime TV personality and wishing him the best. Says Al: "Better to be a good American than a good employee." Good for you! Responds Tonie: Bravo, Marty! We need more patriots like you. Responds Leba: Beautifully put....

The address “The Criterion: Announcement to the World” will air at 11 a.m. EST, the network tweeted on Thursday, according to Breitbart. The tweet announcing the date and time of the broadcast is no longer available on the social media platform.  Farrakhan has been known to spew hateful rhetoric against Jews, gay people and Americans.
