You have to know the difference between a Newsperson and a Pundit.
It's interesting that FOXNews has "news" people (Trace G, Hemmer, etc), and pundits. Fox, unlike the sheeple media, doesn't confuse the two.
It's a totally different style. Perino can pull it off. Maybe? one or two more. Hemmer is a news guy. The facts, good or bad. "Here's what is known." He doesn't veer too far off of that. Tucker is a Pundit. He doesn't veer too far off of that. IMHO, pundits that don't base there opine from the facts are not really worth listening to (are you listening MSNBC, CNN, AJ [depending on who you listen to], BBC, NPR).
I don't listen to Tucker either. I didn't listen to Rushbo, although he brought up many things that did turn out to be true. Both are decent pundints. AND both understand what they do/did for a living. I usually stick to Hemmer because I like the straightforward news and make up my own mind. Although I do appreciate Perino. She's one I'll listen to regardless because I respect her opinion even though I disagree sometimes.

At the beginning, OD, I listened to Rush because he was hilarious. (See link. Oy!, did the feminazis hate that'ne, eh?)
In the last, what?, five years he was taking himself seriously. But he was so powerful among GOPs he made news. I listened, from time to time, for that.
As I've said, I love Perino. Neither MSNBC nor CNN have anyone like Hemmer. I'm guessing that Hemmer left CNN for Fox because Fox still allowed for the reporting of news.
