Not sure whether O’Reilly deserves Yos! for agreeing to leave Fox New or Oys! for the reason he’s leaving. So, let’s go with 2 ½ of each! O’Reilly, an alleged serial sexual harassment offender, follows in the footsteps of his partner-in-crime Roger Ailes, who also was forced out by allegations of sexual harassment not long ago. O’Reilly was Fox’ top ratings-getter, and the top in all cable news. Ailes founded and ran the network. If the two, in effect, top guys were serially harassing women, can that be the end of the issue for the network? Hmmmmm. So, officially let’s award 2 ½ of each to O’Reilly and that leaves room for more in the future. Oy! Oy! ½ Oy! and Yo! Yo! ½ Yo!
The Huffington Post invited to the White House Correspondents Association annual dinner those high school journalists who ousted their new principal through shoe leather and determination by investigating her credentials. They did the background checking the school board never did and showed that the academic background she presented as her bona fides to the school board were fiction. Her principal-ship was short. The dinner, which in the last 20 years morphed from an annual gathering of DC journalists and their sources into a must-get ticket for Hollywood celebrities and included (really) a red carpet, this year will have nearly no celebrities as they are boycotting because Donald Trump is president. Then, Trump said he wouldn't attend because he is in a "fake news" war with the media. Since Trump wasn't going to attend, his entire administration, backing up his refusal to attend, also has said they won't attend. To the Huffington Post, which typically fills its seats with Hollywood types, five Yos!: Yo! Yo! Yo! Yo! Yo! To the high school students, enjoy the dinner, you earned it.
President Trump shares with, at least his press secretary Sean Spicer, five Oys! for the misdirection saying that an “armada” was heading toward North Korea as it prepared to launch a test missile or conduct an underground nuclear test. For a while it appeared Trump’s first 100 days might result in a war. In fact, that “armada” was heading in the opposite direction. No true explanation has come about yet – was Trump doing a misdirection or was there miscommunication or what? Eventually the ships did turn and head toward North Korea. Spicer is saying, in effect, “The ships were heading to the vicinity of North Korea they just started in the opposite direction.” Five Oys! for scaring the bejesus out of the world. Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy!
