Ask Howie

    I was at the Trump rally in Windham, NH last night. My first rally. I am a Board Certified Internist and Gastroenterologist with over 40 years of experience. I was in the front row closest to Mr. Trump. He was described on your report as "being unhinged." I presume this is a political rather than a psychiatric observation. Nevertheless, the implication of the statement is clear. I can assure you that from my observations which are honed from many years of clinical practice, that he is not unhinged…

    Is it your responsibility to call out the media rather than your guests who have their own bias. In fact one of your guests at least had actual facts, but isn't that your job. The show is called Media Buzz. Maybe I am wrong and if so, please straighten me out. The media has to answer to all the bias and other things that you and only you should be able to call them out on. Thanks

    Howie, watched you and Greta Van Susteren discussing the coverage of Trump this week. I was fascinated that Greta didn't really think this was organized and it was much more Trump’s doing. Let me remind you that the entire leadership of the DNC was shown the door and that didn't even rate an 8 hour news cycle coverage. THE ENTIRE LEADERSHIP, and yet Donald Trump and a Gold Star father have a brush up and the entire world is on Trump. And to be frank Hillary & the DNC baited Trump with Kahn and Kahn knew it.

I'm not educated as to how the networks are held accountable for what they say, but it seems like they can belittle Patricia Smith and others and get away with it? Why are they allowed to do that? It's just wrong what these outlets are doing! FOX is the only network that truly is fair and balanced. Other networks need to look to y'all for guidance.

Howard, WHY do you and most Fox News reporters lump people of color behaving badly in with the entire group of people of color, but do NOT (and rightly so) lump policemen behaving badly with the entire group of policemen? You should NOT label an entire group because of the actions of a few. Also, WHY do you continuously make references to "policemen were protecting the protesters," when it is the police job to protect law-abiding taxpayers and citizens?

It is the job of the media in general, and news organizations specifically to report the facts. We, the public, do not need your interpretation of anything. We can decide for ourselves what these things mean.

Headline writers are the bottom feeders of journalism. All many people look at are the headlines. Responsible journalists can write a balanced story but the whole thing can be sabotaged by a bad headline. Aren’t there any journalistic ethical principles for headlines?

There is no question there is a difference in how the media covers Trump and the protected way they cover Hillary, even when she ignores them. It’s ironic that Trump will attempt to answer any question thrown at him, while Hillary gives the media few opportunities, other than under friendly and controlled situations, to ask real questions. Most seem to be softballs.

Does The Donald's nomination conclusively demonstrate that the media will do ANYTHING for ratings?

You didn't deal today with the real reasons for the backlash with Megyn regarding Donald Trump. The blowback is, as you must know, the hypocrisy and lack of balance at the network. It’s moving away from its core audience to pursue audience growth from center left. Not sure it will work.

If you don't think FOX went on a 24/7 pro Trump tirade, you've been absent for months
