NEW CONTRACT FOR FOX NEWS' BETA MALE: Somewhat surprising news today that Alan Colmes, co-host/sidekick of Fox News Channel's "Hannity and Colmes," has signed a new contract to continue to host that show. H&C is Exhibit A for those who call Fox a conservative network, as the dynamic, bright, and well-spoken conservative Hannity is paired with the weak, tentative, stammering Colmes, who is decisively on the defensive for about 2/3rds of each episode- clearly Fox searched long and hard for the dumbest liberal they could find and Colmes is who they found. The kangaroo court-like show was even compared by the lefty website TomPaine.com to "a Harlem Globetrotters game." This new contract only puts off the inevitable, which is that Colmes will eventually quit and/or be fired and subsequently write a Bernard Goldberg-like tell-all book about the evils of the "Fair and Balanced" network.
