Alan Colmes, who was one of Fox News's only prominent liberals, has died suddely at age 66.
His wife, Jocelyn Crowley, posted the following statement, confirming his death today:
Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.
Though a left-wing commentator, his right-wing colleagues may have liked him even more than liberal audiences, who sometimes felt he was used as a deliberately downplayed foil to his longtime co-host, Sean Hannity. Hannity later received his own show.

The term fake news was coined to mean, literally, false information intentionally created and passed off as real information. The intent of fake news is to deceive.
Factually incorrect information that was presented as news in good faith but is corrected is not fake news, not unless it is intentionally left uncorrected.
Factual news that is perhaps focused on at the expense of other news is not fake news, even if the act of curating could be called manipulative.
Factual news that is unpleasant to some factions is not fake news.
Calling all of the media fake news is fake news.
There are now several incidents of Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Donald Trump himself, at this rally in Florida Saturday ...
Trump, discussing terror, seamlessly mentions incident "last night in Sweden".— Steve Kopack (@SteveKopack) February 19, 2017

... referring to terrorist incidents that NEVER HAPPENED. Conway infamously referenced Bowling Green, Spicer allegedly confused Orlando with Atlanta, and now Trump has referred to a non-existent terrorist incident in Sweden on Friday when no event of any kind occurred.
This is a pattern, not a series of mistakes.
These grifters are gaslighting America. The rest of the world knows it's fake news, but a good % of the American public is saluting the cardboard cut-out:
I honestly do not believe there is hope for America after Trump's ascendance to the throne. He is chipping away at the country's already shaky trust in the media, and I do not believe that is something that can be recovered. His goons will believe anything. I believe he is highly beatable in four years, but not sure he'll last, and yet I don't think it matters — he has already destroyed any concept of the office as anything good, noble and decent, and will have utterly destroyed too many people's faith in what's real and what's fake.
For the record: He's fake. Take me to the camps first.
Sorry if it sounds harsh, but reading unbearably pompous gay writer Chadwick Moore's eye-rolling story of being oh-so-very upset that his gay friends have turned on him now that he is a right-winger who thinks businesses should have a right to discriminate against us, I couldn't help but focus on his odd neediness to impress and bond with his conservative father.
Just suck his dick and get it over with already, bro.
Oh, wait, that's right, we lefties are mean girls, so if we say anything mean, we're in a bubble. Unlike Ann Coulter, who Moore —in his coming-out — notes is witty and smart.
Moore's a total hypocrite for whining about mean libs. He interviewed the — I can assure you, extremely warm and genuine — Nick Jonas for Out, then later excoriated Jonas for having the balls to speak out on behalf of LGBTQ rights. He told Nick to fuck off on Twitter, and wrote an absolute rant on Facebook that he has since gutlessly deleted.
Moore's writing is also a slog — filled with a holier-than-thou vibe and riddled with devil's advocacy (he was the devil all along, not just his advocate), so it's completely unsurprising that he would declare he is a conservative. The only shocker is that he claims he voted for Hillary, which is not exactly believable since in the same piece he says he and his beloved dad spent hours bonding over “the ridiculousness of lefties.”
The ridiculousness of lefties? Let's review:
Yeah, spare me your high-grounded reasonableness, Chadwick.
I commend Chadwick's best friend, who dropped him like a hot sack of shit over his right-wing conversion. This is not about incuriousness and not tolerating free speech, this is about a gay man, writing for a magazine with the title of OUT (hope they use him Chadwick Less) who now believes that businesses in the U.S. should be allowed to discriminate against gay people.
Moore has written that he doesn't want to be tolerated, he wants to be loved or hated. That says everything about his character, and his attention-whoring. (Also: Put me down for hate.)
In his anti-Nick Jonas FB post that Moore scotched, he wrote:
And I keep wondering, to my sisters and brothers--when will the mothership return for us? This planet doesn’t deserve us. Maybe it’s time we check out.
You are not our brother, nor our sister; you are an embarrassment whose lack of self-esteem is worn as the opposite, so ... you first. Bye-eee.
Appearing on Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, Ryan Murphy was put on the spot by host Andy Cohen regarding the upcoming seventh season of his wildly popular American Horror Story.
I guess Murphy is really going for pure horror, because he confirmed the series will focus on ... the 2016 election!
In response to Cohen fishing for any info about the theme, Murphy volunteered:
Well, I don't have a title, uh, but, uh, the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election ... that we just went through. So, I think that will be itneresting for a lot of people.
Andy started to move on, but caught himself and asked if that meant someone would be playing Donald Trump on the show, to which Murphy admitted:
... uh ... maybe.
God, am I going to have to commit to watching this thing? I hear nothing but raves, but just haven't been able to commit to a series in years.
