Lynn Henning and Tony Paul The Detroit News Published 8:16 PM EDT Oct 9, 2018 Detroit — It's splitsville for Tigers broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, neither of whom will return to the TV booth in 2019, according to a source with direct knowledge of Fox Sports Detroit's decision. Tigers and FSD officials didn't immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday night. Impemba and Allen worked alongside each other for 16 seasons, from 2002 until early September, when a physical altercation in the press box of Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago led to both of their suspensions for the remainder of the season. They formed an easy rapport on the air, particularly during the Tigers' good run of baseball from 2006-14 led to some of the best ratings in baseball. But their off-air relationship long has been known to be strained, and it boiled over after a Sept. 4 game against the White Sox. A source told The News that Allen had Impemba in a chokehold, a … [Read more...] about Mario Impemba and Rod Allen won’t be back in Tigers’ TV booth

Avi Selk, The Washington Post Published 11:55 am, Sunday, June 24, 2018 "Fox and Friends" organized a spirited discussion about left-wing language on Sunday that opened with a clip of an MSNBC personality comparing Trump voters to Nazis. "THE LEFT'S RACIST RANTS CONTINUE," read the caption that accompanied the clip, and Fox News host Ed Henry introduced the two debaters. Arguing for the right, David Bossie - a former senior Trump campaign aide and president of the conservative group Citizens United. For the left, Joel Payne, a Democratic strategist and a black man. We mention the latter fact for reasons that will become apparent. Bossie spoke first, at length and at a high volume, enunciating syllables by pounding the air with his hands.

By Sheila Dang and Diane Bartz (Reuters) – Comcast Corp offered $65 billion (£48.6 billion) on Wednesday for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc media assets, emboldened by AT&T Inc prevailing over the Trump administration’s attempt to block a merger with Time Warner Inc. The all-cash offer for Fox’s movie and TV studios and other assets including the X-Men franchise, opens a war with Walt Disney Co, which has bid $52 billion in stock. Comcast is expected to lead a wave of traditional media companies trying to combine distribution and production to compete with Netflix Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google. The younger firms produce content, sell it online directly to consumers and often offer lucrative targeted advertising. AT&T won a court victory over sceptical U.S. antitrust regulators on Tuesday when a federal judge allowed it to buy Time Warner for $85 billion, which was widely taken as a green light for Comcast to submit its expected bid. Comcast may face … [Read more...] about Comcast offers to buy Fox media assets for $65 billion in cash
