BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
Brian weighs in on the latest news coming out of yesterday's Benghazi testimony and wants to know why Ambassador Susan Rice didn't ask the highest ranking official in Benghazi at the time of the September attacks any questions before she went on five Sunday talk shows.
Brian's co-host on FOX & Friends, Steve Doocy, stopped by and talked to Brian about yesterday's Benghazi testimony. "The United States of America's federal government lied to the people of America in anticipation of the President getting re-elected... They concocted a cover story and ran with it," Doocy exclaimed.
Co-stars of the Nat Geo Channel show Wicked Tuna, Captains Tyler McLaughlin and Dave Carraro, talked to Brian and Steve Doocy about how they catch sushi-grade Blue Fin Tuna. They explained that while they are trying to catch the tuna, they could be fighting the fish for as little as 20 minutes or as long as 10 hours. Captain Carraro also explained that for a sushi-grade tuna that weighs around 500 pounds, they can make as little as $1,000 and as much as $10,000-15,000 on a single fish.
FOX News Sunday host Chris Wallace called in, and after trying to steal Brian's tech producer, John, he weighed in on yesterday's Benghazi hearings. "Hicks told in riveting detail yesterday the fact that when they saw what was happening in Benghazi, the thought, 'we could be next,'" Wallace explained. He went onto explain that as a result, Hicks and other started shredding important documents so rebels would not see them. "What does that say to you? Does that say to you that this was a spontaneous demonstration...? I mean they were acting like they were under a terrorist attack," Wallace exclaimed.
Steve Schirripa, author of Big Daddy's Rules, talked to Brian about his comedic book that's all about his "no-mess" parenting techniques and how he got his role on the hit TV show, The Sopranos. He explained that on the first six episodes he did on The Sopranos, he made a mere $22,000. "I was just a recurring character," Schirripa explained, "But as the years went on, we all did great." He also shared some insight into his parenting techniques, and why he thinks "because I said so" is the most underrated parenting phrase!
Jason Binn, CEO and Founder of DuJour Media Group, talked to Brian about the high-fashion celebrity world that he is in the center of. In the interview, Binn gave his take on Kim Kardashian's pregnancy fashion choices and explained to Brian how he founded one of the biggest fashion magazines in America. Binn said one of the hardest parts of his jobs is seeing people rise and fall.
"When you're in entertainment, whether it's Justin Bieber or an actor or an actress, you're as good as your last film, you're as good as your last event, you're as good as your last show, you're as good as your last magazine, and I think that's really important," Binn explained, "And the more that you understand that and you don't take what you do for granted, that's what makes you a success.
