Fox News’ Shannon Bream on ‘Volatile’ Scene at Supreme Court: Protesters Were ‘Getting Physical’

Fox News anchor Shannon opened up on Tuesday about the “volatile” scene she encountered with anti-Fox protesters on the steps of the Supreme Court Monday night after President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“People were jostling around, getting physical. People were standing behind me while I was trying to do live shots. It was pretty unnerving,” she told TheWrap. “I felt unsure at some point. There was one guy wearing a mask standing behind us. He wouldn’t move.”

As the protests continued, Bream said she began to grow more concerned — eventually scrapping a plan to shoot “Fox News @ Night” from outside the Supreme Court building and instead move to the network’s Washington, D.C., studio.

“There were people who were screaming and angry and pressing in on us,” she said. “People were very passionate and emotional.”

Bream, who had been broadcasting from the court since 8:30 a.m., said she and her Fox News team were targeted by many protesters. “There were people who were screaming at us and were clearly not Fox fans,” she told TheWrap. “A small group of people who were yelling and getting in our faces, were saying things that were anti-Fox.”

Bream said barricades separating protesters from media — typical during most other high-profile moments at the high court — were not in place Monday night.

“I want to sing the praises of the U.S. Supreme Court police because they’re always fantastic. They always do a good job,” she said “But last night the barriers weren’t there.”

Reps for the Supreme Court police did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap about why the barriers were not present.

On Monday, Bream had tweeted about how fears for her and her crew’s safety prompted her to change her broadcast plans.

“Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS,” she said. “Literally had to bail on our live show from #SCOTUS. Moving the show back to the safety of the studio.

Fox News anchor Shannon opened up on Tuesday about the “volatile” scene she encountered with anti-Fox protesters on the steps of the Supreme Court Monday night after President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Fox News Host Cancels Live Coverage of Brett Kavanaugh Protest: ‘I Felt Threatened’

Hundreds of people gathered on the steps of the United States Supreme Court on Monday night to protest President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, and the tension was so high that Fox News host Shannon Bream canceled a live show because she didn’t feel it was safe.

“Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile,” Bream tweeted later that night. “Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.”

She went on to say that the network’s team had changed their original coverage plans and moved to a studio location. “Literally had to bail on our live show from . Moving the show back to the safety of the studio. See y’all at 11p,” Bream wrote. A representative for Fox News did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The protest was in response to Trump’s announcement that he has nominated appeals court judge Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant by outgoing justice Anthony Kennedy.

The 53-year-old Yale Law School graduate has served on the D.C. appeals court since 2006, having been nominated by George W. Bush in 2003. Kavanaugh previously served in the Bush administration advising on the selection of judicial nominees, and worked the Bush campaign during the 2000 Florida recount. In the 1990s, he worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation that eventually led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

Trump’s pick will likely establish a 5-4 conservative majority on the court — which could shape the court for generations — and it encouraged a crowd to quickly gather following the 9 p.m. ET announcement.

Holding up signs such as “Protect Roe Save SCOTUS,” the protesters chanted “Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Kavanaugh has got to go,” according to USA Today.

Sen. Bernie Sanders told the crowd they should be ready to challenge the nomination. “Are you ready for a fight? Are you ready to defend Roe vs. Wade?” he said. “This is a tough fight but it is a fight that we can win … We have the American people on our side, now we have to go state by state by state to make sure senators do what their constituents want.”

Mike Huckabee Defends Tweet Linking Nancy Pelosi and MS-13 Gang: ‘It Was Satire’ (Video)

Mike Huckabee on Monday defended a tweet suggesting that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi employed MS-13 gang members, telling Fox News host Shannon Bream that the blowback was all just a misunderstanding and evidence that clearly people didn’t understand “satire.”

“It was satire,” he told Bream, brushing aside the controversy. “I tell people all the time and I regularly post on my Twitter account. If you don’t have a sense of humor, if you cannot handle satire, please don’t follow me.”

The original joke from Huckabee on Saturday suggested that Pelosi was employing MS-13 gang members.

The former Arkansas governor rebuffed criticism of the tweet, which many have derided as racist and offensive.

“A lot of people are trying to make this about race. What race was I talking about? I was talking about a criminal gang. A gang is not a race. People who murder, rape, who mutilate little children children, that’s not a race of people. That is a gang of criminals,” said Huckabee.

“There’s nothing to defend. I’m amazed that there were people out there defending MS-13 and somehow saying that we were nice enough to them. I don’t want to be nice to MS-13. I want them to be out of business. I appreciate the president for wanting to treat them as they are, as criminals and people that are predators to little children and need to be taken off of our streets.”

Just hours earlier, Huckabee had used his platform to accuse the Lexington, Va., restaurant Red Hen of “bigotry” after they refused to serve his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, because of her work for the president.

“Bigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA,” he thundered. “Or you can ask for the ‘Hate Plate’. And appetizers are ‘small plates for small minds.’”

Fox News Offers Second Apology to Philadelphia Eagles

Fox News host Shannon Bream offered an on-air apology on Tuesday night following a Monday segment where she suggested that Philadelphia Eagles players who were kneeling in prayer had actually been protesting the national anthem.

“Last night during our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer,” said Bream on her program “Fox News @ Night”

“To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season last year. We sincerely apologize for the error.”

The moment earned a broad rebuke online, even from the right-leaning Media Research Center whose managing editor, Brittany Hughes, called the photo “deceptive.”

On Monday, Fox News ran a segment on the NFL national anthem protest which included misleading footage of Philadelphia Eagles players kneeling in prayer. The segment from “Fox News @ Night” anchor Shannon Bream was used to bolster President Trump’s decision to cancel a planned event with Eagles players at the White House today.

“The Philadelphia Eagles will not be visiting the White House tomorrow to celebrate their Super Bowl victory due to the national anthem controversy,” said Bream. “The Eagles who won Super Bowl LII apparently wanted to send a smaller group of players. A handful did not plan to attend but it appears the president said ‘no thanks.’”

As she spoke, footage ran of Eagles players kneeling in prayer, not protest. During the 2017 season, not a single Eagles player kneeled for the anthem, CBS News and multiple other outlets reported.

Fox News Anchor Shannon Bream: ‘I’ve Heard Other Similar Allegations Against Brokaw’ (Video)

Fox News couldn’t resist delving into the sexual misconduct accusations swirling around NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw. On Thursday evening, “Fox News @ Night” anchor Shannon Bream revealed a curious nugget, telling network media guru Howard Kurtz that she was not surprised by the Brokaw story.

“Being in this business and knowing plenty of other women in this business, I have heard other, similar allegations against Brokaw. So it will be interesting to see what comes of this,” she said.

Bream dropped that little nugget after Kurtz offered a defense of sorts for the embattled NBC icon.

“I’ve covered most of Brokaw’s career at NBC. Very nice man. I’ve never heard a whisper or rumor about this sort of thing. Married to the same woman, Meredith, for more than 50 years,” said Kurtz.

On Thursday, Variety and the Washington Post published an account each of the women who say that Brokaw engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with them decades ago. The Variety account came from Linda Vester, who spoke on-record to the magazine in a lengthy video which accompanied their story.

“I was groped and assaulted by Tom Brokaw, then the anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News,’ said Vester in the video, who alleged that Brokaw groped her, tried to kiss her on multiple occasions and showed up uninvited to her hotel room back in the 1990s.

Friends of Vester’s told Variety that she had told them of the Brokaw behavior at the time and the journalist provided contemporaneous journal entries to the magazine to further corroborate her claims.

For his part, Brokaw issued a categorical denial of Vester’s claim.

“I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC,” he said in a statement provided to Variety. “The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda’s allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her at that time or any other.”

Fox News anchor Shannon Bream took to Twitter on Sunday evening to make an appeal on behalf of a gravely ill boy who said his last wish was to meet one of the Avengers.

And within hours, “Captain America” star Chris Evans, “Ant-Man” actor Paul Rudd and other big-screen superheroes answered the call and contributed videos for the boy, whose name is Emilio.

“His uncle sat next to me on a flight a few weeks ago,” Bream told TheWrap on Monday. “He reached out yesterday, and I don’t really have Hollywood friends but I said I’d give it a try. I sent the tweet and said a prayer.”

Bream, who did who did not provide other details about Emilio’s location or condition, got an almost immediate response to her tweet.

“We got videos from Paul Rudd and Chris Evans to the boy,” Bream told TheWrap, who credited CNN anchor Jake Tapper for helping to make it all happen.

“Jake is friends with Rudd and that really got the ball rolling. That — in addition to all the kind RTs — got the attention of the others,” she said. “I’m still going through tweets this morning and finding others offering to get involved.”

Rudd and Evans were not the only Marvel universe stars to respond to Bream. Ryan Reynolds, the star of the R-rated “Deadpool” superhero franchise, also offered his services: “I’m more of a ‘Reserve Avenger’. But happy to help.”

“Thank you, EVERYONE! Major progress has been made because of you. A special assist coming in from @jaketapper ??’????? I guess Twitter can be full of love when someone really needs it,” Bream tweeted.

Tucker Carlson to Take Megyn Kelly’s Time Slot on Fox News

Tucker Carlson will take over Megyn Kelly’s 9 p.m. time slot after she leaves, Fox News announced on Thursday.

Additionally, Martha MacCallum will move to Carlson’s current 7 p.m. spot for at least the first 100 days of the Trump administration.

“In less than two months, Tucker has taken cable news by storm with his spirited interviews and consistently strong performance. Viewers have overwhelmingly responded to the show and we look forward to him being a part of Fox News’ powerful primetime line-up,” 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch said in a statement.

Kelly, who announced her decision to move to NBC News earlier this week, will have her last day on the top cable news channel on Friday. Carlson’s show moves to 9 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 9, while MacCallum’s new show will start on Jan. 16 with Bret Baier working 6-8 p.m. in the meantime.

MacCallum’s 7 p.m. show will be called “The First 100 Days,” and it’s still undecided if she will keep the time slot after that. Either way, she recently signed a new multi-year deal with Fox News. Shannon Bream will co-anchor “America’s Newsroom: with Bill Hemmer in MacCallum’s absence.

“Martha is a versatile and skilled anchor who has proven to be an essential component of our news programming. For the last 12 years, our viewers have trusted her reporting and we are pleased she will be part of our primetime line-up for the first 100 days of the new presidency,” Murdoch said.

Carlson took over the 7 p.m. ET time slot formerly occupied by Greta Van Susteren back on Nov. 14 and ratings haven’t slowed down since then. The first week of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was the third highest-rated week of the year for Fox News during the 7 p.m. hour, behind only election week and the Republican National Convention coverage.

In the first four weeks of the show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 2.9 million viewers and 537,000 in the key demo of adults age 25-54, topping CNN’s “Erin Burnett Outfront” and MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” combined in both categories.

“I just want to make a show that I would watch. I’m mostly a news reader, so I always think when I’m reading the stories, ‘I wish I could talk to the person in the story,’” Carlson told TheWrap last month. “Less analysis and more interviews with people who are in the news, maybe who aren’t on television a lot but are directly connected to the story.”

Carlson prefers to have “participants” from the news on his program, and the plan has paid off. He’s had a variety of guests over the first four weeks of the show, including New York Times public editor Liz Spayd, Newsweek’s Matt Cooper, Martin Shkreli and even someone who burnt an American flag.

Many of these guests wouldn’t typically appear on Fox News, but are willing to debate Carlson when he calls on them. Carlson said the reason is a combination of his relationships he’s built over the years and the inviting format of the show that results in left-leaning pundits to appear on his show.

“I know a lot of liberals. This is my 25th year in the media. I’ve lived in a very liberal world my whole life. I like, by the way, a lot of the people in it,” Carlson said. “I know a lot of people … I like to think that we give them a chance to talk. There is no point in having someone on if you don’t let them say what they think.”

Fox News finished 2016 as the most-watched basic cable network in prime time and total day, a first for the network that has been around since 1996.

The ratings success came despite the ouster of Fox News founder and chairman Roger Ailes last summer amid embarrassing sexual harassment allegations. The post-Ailes team of Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine stepped up and proved that not much can deter Fox News’ loyal viewers.
