BRIAN'S QUOTE OF THE DAY
Brian on Hamas in Egypt: "So now, we're under the belief, erroneous as it is, that they won a fair election and we should support them. We should never support them. We don't support Hamas, we don't support al-Qaeda, we never would have supported Hitler in World War II even though he won a fair election. So the reaction should be we've got to support the military government... For the most part, I like the military in Egypt. That is the only way for it to work out."
SHANNON BREAM, FOX News Correspondent, stopped by and talked to Brian about the New York Post article entitled "Strong is the New Skinny." Bream loves the idea behind the article, and said that women should not feel any shame in how much they weigh. "Just own it," Bream said. Later, Bream challenged Brian to a push-up contest and then invited him out for a mani-pedi the next time she is in New York!
Grammy-winning recording artist RICKY SKAGGS joined Shannon and Brian in studio! Skaggs talked about his successful career, how he got into Bluegrass music, and how he believes his musical ability is a gift from God. Skaggs said that even though he will perform in "beer joints" and bluegrass festivals more than churches, he finds that performing is a form of worship itself. "Music, it's a language of God that everybody will listen to," Skaggs exclaimed.
CHERYL CASSONE, anchor on the FOX Business Network, talked to Brian about the FOX News Talk Radio All-Star Summit! Cassone, who will anchor the summit, discussed the highly-anticipated event, while Brian expressed his assumption that he will be at the center of attention the whole time. Later, the duo discussed the jobs report and the record-breaking 11 million people that tuned into watch Duck Dynasty last night. To Brian's surprise, Cheryl revealed that she had never seen the show!
FOX News Digital Politics Editor, CHRIS STIREWALT, talked to Brian about Edward Snowden. "The President needs to get into the fight because if he doesn't, this is going to go away," Stirewalt exclaimed. Later, the two discussed if it was appropriate for the President to be golfing while the Navy SEAL UBL raid commenced. While Brian was disappointed with the President's reactions, Stirewalt did not find it too worrisome: "Why is everybody mad that he golfs? He can golf! Golf is a wonderful game."
DAN HENNINGER, Columnist for The Wall Street Journal, talked to Brian about the NYPD's controversial Stop-and-Frisk program. Henninger said he does not understand why certain NYC Democratic mayoral candidates want to wind down the highly-successful program. "The city is just so pleasant now. It's a sea of tranquility... in no small part because of these effective policing strategies," Henninger said.
FOX Sports co-President, ERIC SHANKS, talked to Brian about the newest addition to the FOX family, FOX Sports 1! Shanks said that on the brand new national channel's first day tomorrow, there is going to be 16 hours of live sports between UFC fights, NASCAR, and the late night news show. Shanks also talked about all the programming that will be on the channel during the weekdays and weekends, including a show with Regis Philbin!
KEVIN MCCARTHY, FOX News Contributor and film critic, gave Brian the low-down on which movies to see this weekend. McCarthy raved about the upcoming film The Butler, exclaiming that Forest Whitaker poured his heart into playing the starring role of Cecil Gaines. McCarthy also said that Oprah deserves an Academy Award nomination for her role in the film as Gloria Gaines. "She is one of those people who are so famous that if I can watch her on camera and not think of Oprah and think of the character, she's done her job," McCarthy explained.
