Proud New BabyDaddy @ Fox News

By Debbie Schlussel

As I noted recently, you won’t see hypocrite Mike Huckabee criticizing single mother Bristol Palin the way he did single mother Natalie Portman because he’ll only criticize liberals and non-FOX News affiliated babymamas and babydaddies.  So don’t look for Hucksterbee to say a word about his FOX News colleague, John Roberts, a newly-minted babydaddy. Ditto for Bill O’Reilly who criticized Jennifer Aniston for playing a single mother in a movie, but hasn’t said a word about Bristol Palin or Roberts and won’t.

Grandpa John Roberts, FOX News BabyDaddy, w/CNN BabyMama Kyra Phillips

Roberts, 54 and FOX News’ senior national correspondent, just had twins with girlfriend/CNN anchor Kyra Phillips, 42.  No, they are not married.  It’s ironic that the couple made great effort to pick out very fancy-sounding, pretentious names for their new kids, Sage Ann and Kellan Clay, but just couldn’t bring themselves to do the most basic classy thing:  get married.

This is the culture now, not just in liberal America, but in FOX News’ America.  And Roberts and Phillips are glamorizing it, too. They shamelessly sold an “exclusive” to People magazine, just like Bristol Palin’s pimp, Sarah Palin, did for her.  But don’t look for Mike Hucksterbee or Bill Falafel/Loofah O’Reilly to say a damned thing about it.

Consistency and real, actual concern about the promotion of out-of-wedlock births in America aren’t Hucksterbee’s thing.


One other thing:  some of you might point out that Roberts came to FOX News from CNN.  The thing is, Roger Ailes and FOX News have brought in so many liberal CNN personalities, from Greta Van Surgery to Bill Hemmer to this guy, there are fewer and fewer differences between the two networks.

Bravo DS! I’d like to point out that if black women in America have a 71% out of wedlock and this elitist couple who would think they are ABOVE said black women…are NOT! You have joined that fabulous group to be part of (emphasis on the out-of-wedlock and NOT race). You Hollywood elites are NO BETTER!

Oh and ladies, if your baby-daddy won’t marry you, he just doesn’t respect you. You can get mad at me for pointing it out, but at the end of the day, yo’ baby-daddy doesn’t respect you and you ought to wrap your brain around THAT piece of sadness.

They are both old. Looks like fertility drugs were used to become a bastard-factory. How sad. (I just don’t think all these twins being born are natural…too many to be so).

DS is right. If you abhore out-of-wedlock births, than ALL are to be frowned on. That’s the one thing that troubled me about so-called Conservatives and the Bristol Palin baby-mama storyline.

Oh yeah, thanks for pointing out the Liberals from CNN (Greta Van Sidemouth and Bill Hemmer…left in the dust and overtaken by Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly and his falafel/loofa fetish) now on Fox News….owned 19% by Prince al-Waleed bin Talal.

Oh yes, Fox News is sooooooooo Conservative.

I think both Roberts and Philips should tie-the-knot since these two had twins. Now if I had a girlfriend and the both of us had sexual relations with eachother and I impregnate her, I’ll marry her and not selfishly leave the poor girl and let her become a “babby-mother” (as Schlussel mentions). Now I don’t know why John Roberts and Kyra Philips aren’t getting married since the two of them had twins? Are they both being narcassitic and selfish? Could be!

I would rather have these two unmarried parents who are (ostensibly) committed to one another, in love, and providing a good home, than be stuck with two married parents who hate each other but stay together “for the kids”.

My dad left my mom virtually at the altar, and I’m better off for it. What I found out from my half-siblings several decades later was that he was a real sh!tbag of a father. But hey, they got that whole “married parents” experience and are better off for it – NOT! They’re both messed up in a lot of ways that I, thankfully, am not. I’m glad ol’ pops wasn’t around so I could suffer through the many years it took him to finally grow up.

The first step is: don’t have an out-of-wedlock pregnancy. If step 1 fails, don’t use the kid as an excuse to be anchored to someone you can’t stand. Bad marriages is what truly messes up the kid – not single parenting.

Dave-O on March 16, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Dave, sounds to me like the lesson to be learned from your story is not “don’t get married” but “Don’t date and/or have sex with a__holes.” Too many women have sexual relationships with guys they KNOW are selfish, narcissistic jerks, and they do it anyway, then whine for the rest of their lives about what selfish narcissistic jerks their baby daddies are. I even know girls who are currently having sex with guys who have fathered babies with other girls without marrying them, and these girls actually believe that somehow THEY will be different.

It’s a good thing I check out this site often or I’d have never heard about this story since I no longer watch FUX News.

CornCoLeo on March 16, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Now that’s a lie. Bad marriages…messes up the kid”–what you stated, is a lie.
Out of wedlock, bastard kids is what is helping to ruin this once great nation. It is a culture, a way of life. Stats abound with these things, pretty accurate too.

If you come from a single parent family: You have 2 strikes vs you in this life. Simple. More likely to use/abuse drugs, end up in prison, work (whenever that is) at menial jobs, etc.

Funny, there is an option if ya’ll dont want to have kids in a relationship,…there IS another option.

Jilly on March 16, 2011 at 9:24 pm

‘On ya Jilly! Couldn’t have said it better.

Dave-O, keep dreaming. As a guy you KNOW that a man who does not marry a broad has no respect for her. Even worse if he knocks her up.

No one is saying a married couple will 100% always be better parents, but when the guy does not respect a woman, the relationship is at a disadvantage from the get-go.

Men are getting LOTS o’ milk free these days. I blame the woman more. The angst alllllll comes out when the un-covenanted relationship is broken when the guy easily leaves. The broads really take umbrage then when they really have no right. I see it as estoppel because the dummies waived the rules when they decided to be used.

Skunky on March 16, 2011 at 9:33 pm

John Roberts before he went to the USA was a host on “Much Music” videos channel in Canada.

Bill C. on March 16, 2011 at 9:42 pm

With the piece in People magazine we will probably be treated to lots of pics of the beautiful news people gushing over their beautiful babies – with no discussion of when they plan to marry. Oh yeah, we ADORE these little miracle babies, but not quite enough to provide them with the security of married parents.

I remember many years ago one of my employees came to me to tell me she was pregnant. And unmarried. I asked her when she and the baby daddy planned on tying the knot. She stated a date well into the future, 6 – 12 months after the baby was due. I asked why they were waiting, unless they intended their child would be the ring bearer. She said, “Well, we can’t really afford the kind of big wedding we want right now, and I want to be able to lose the baby weight so I look good in my wedding gown, so we’re going to wait.” I said, “Sweetheart, seems to me the big white-wedding ship sailed the night you got pregnant. Now you just need to mitigate the damage and bring this baby into a home with two MARRIED parents.” She told me I sounded just like her mother. Two weeks later they had a small wedding with just both families. And Dave, I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but they are STILL married and have two more kids, 15 years later.

    DG, you rock! 😀

    Skunky on March 17, 2011 at 9:45 am

People that old shouldnt be having babies. By the time the kids are in college they’ll be taking turns changing their dads diapers. When I see people in their fifties having children it smacks of selfishness. I’m 29 and I’d be pissed if my dad was 81.

tyler on March 17, 2011 at 1:19 am

    You can say that again.

    What a mess this could turn out to be.

    I wonder how many kids this guy Roberts already has. Why did he have to leave Canada?

    BethesdaDog on March 17, 2011 at 10:38 pm

Oh actually that smarmy looking greasy msmer will be 83 when his twins are 29.

tyler on March 17, 2011 at 1:21 am

As per Bill C. – – once an aging hipster VJ…

All that’s missing is the mullet, eh?

The Reverend Jacques on March 17, 2011 at 1:40 am

    Those two guys look ghastly– not quite gay, but freaky. Is that a Canadian thing? I don’t ever remember Americans looking that weird.

    America is really screwed up, where talentless idiots become millionaires in the media.

    BethesdaDog on March 17, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Phillips is not a child either. Do you believe that pregnancy was an accident on her part? Please! She might not get all she planned… though.

Maria on March 17, 2011 at 9:09 am

    Maria, you bring up a valid point, since John Roberts mistakenly impregnated Kyra Philips, he should’ve proposed marriage to her. Afterall, the two of them have a career that pays them great money, so they both can take care of the twin kids. But John Roberts decides not to marry Mrs. Philips. One man’s opinion, if I go out with a single girl and she has a child, I’ll go out with her and build a relationship with her, and I’ll be a better father to her own child than the last guy she was with. And from their I’ll marry the girl and we’ll have more kids and create a bigger family. Now since I’m a single man and looking for a female, I’m not going to talk about “family values”, I’ll leave that to those on this website who has children.

    “A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on March 17, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Oh, by the way, she will be 71 when the child reaches 29. Not pretty.

Maria on March 17, 2011 at 9:21 am

The fact that nowdays it’s “cool” for unmarried couples to have children is another indication of the cultural morass that we have fallen into. Hey, in the days of the cavemen when they dragged a prospective mate into a cave did they stop at a minister’s first?

Jerry on March 17, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Well they violated the baby naming rules that I set out. One of those rules is “Thou shalt not name thy daughter after an herb, nor a spice, nor any other condiment, lest thy friends assume she cometh from the unwashed wearers of hemp.” And don’t tell me Sage can also mean wise. That’s not what the kids at school will think when they tease the crap out of her. And what the hell kind ofname is Kellan? That’s a fake Irish name the same way Da’Quan is a fake African name.

Sean M. on March 17, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    Yeah, should have named the kid Da’Quan, or Latwan, or Antwan. That would have been interesting.

    Talk about being teased later in school.

    BethesdaDog on March 17, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Thanks for the replies.

My point was not that having a single parent is always better, or was all rainbows and musicals while I was growing up. My point is that my upbringing would most definitely have been a bigger struggle and my chances of ending up a dysfunctional mess like my half-siblings (who had the “privilege” of growing up in a married 2-parent household with my father) would have been substantially greater if he had not abandoned my mother.

Jilly… you’re right in that, statistically, kids from single parent households have a greater tendency to wind up stuck with all of those problems you list. But it’s not an absolute guarantee, as Debbie seems to suggest every time she bashes someone who has a kid out of wedlock. I’d say the kids of these two educated working professionals in the story have a statistically greater likelihood of turning out just fine, compared to kids somewhere else whose parents really can’t stand each other but only decided to get/stay married “for the children”. Let’s not pretend that the only losers and criminals in our society come from single parent homes.

I grew up poor as hell, but now have a graduate degree and earn a salary in the top 5% of US households. I’m an honorable military veteran, was never arrested in my life, not a drug user, etc. The reason for all this was because, despite the struggles and not having a dad at home, what I DID have at home was a hard working, decent, religious, mother who filled our home with love and supported me through her sweat & tears. Would we have preferred a dad there with a decent job and the ability to teach me life’s lessons from man’s perspective and provide my mom the love that a husband is supposed to give? OF COURSE! But the a-hole who was my father was in absolutely no position to provide any of that. And it was evidenced by the fact that he went on to have the whole married, 2.5 kids, suburban household, it (no surprise) was an UNhappy home that produced two messed up kids. I was better off for him abandoning us.

Try looking at it this way: In Debbie’s world, the widow of an Iraq War veteran should just get hitched with the first guy who’s willing to nail her because the children just “NEEEED” a man in the house – no matter how much of an idiot he may be. You guys go ahead and tell the war widows how to run their lives.

Dave-O on March 17, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Dave-O, I think you are not only misunderstanding DS’s point of view, but you have also presumed she feels a way she definately DOESN’T (If I may be so bold to say). That’s not fair.

    I believe DS would NOT think someone (especially a widow…who loses her hubby due to NOTHING she did) who has kids with no dad to immediately marry/date any man at all. I don’t know for sure, but I will use MY belief in her stead (since I am not concrete in her personal view on the matter)…single mums (and widowed and divorced mums) should DEFINATELY NOT marry ANY MAN until their kids are adults and out of the house.

    You see, when a broad who has kids gets attached to a man (non-daddy), she is taking her valuable time AWAY FROM HER KIDS. Don’t have ’em if you don’t want to raise them.

    Kids RESENT new males in their lives. It takes their mum away from them (they are HER kids and NO ONE will love them more than HER…or “Daddy”). It makes them angry (rightfully so) and they act out.

    Sometimes, the kids make life hell for the new man, too. It puts the new man in a sticky situation. It’s not fair for the kids or the new man and at the end of the day, the woman and the man are together for their own selfish sexual fulfillment. The kid will suffer.

    It’s all about picking “right” and being “nice”. If you pick wrong or lose a spouse due to tragedy, the same rules still apply (with REAL sympathy)…once you have a child, your next 18 years are to be the best parent to that child as you can. If you can’t hack it DON’T HAVE KIDS.

    I’m tired of adults ruining children’s lives because they want a sex life. It’s disgusting and one of the few spoken of ways which illustrates how women can be very evil (when they pick a man over the well-being of child….especially if the guy is a child molester…and let me tell you, some women know it but pick the man over their own child!).

    Skunky on March 17, 2011 at 7:19 pm

SEAN R, I think some woman out there will be very lucky to find a man with morals such as you seem to have — unlike Skunky, who refers to women as broads, skanks, and carries himself with double standards (i.e. holds the woman more responsible than the men who use women and are superior for doing so in his opinion). He teaches his children that women are skanks. I wish you luck in finding someone to create a nice family with.

CJ on March 17, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    Oh, snap CJ. I’m actually a FEMALE.

    Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right, man. LOL!

    Skunky on March 18, 2011 at 9:11 am

I believe in Tanach only. Men had multiple wives and the women could only be the wife of one man. I do not remember where in the Tanach it says you must stand before a justice of the peace and get married. (It doesn’t) Many people in Tanach had many children from many wives and some were sent away with the child.

Tina Welch on March 17, 2011 at 10:20 pm

As a mind-numbed Palin-ista, just allow me to add that NO one condones Bristol becoming pregnant out of wedlock. It wasn’t good for her or her baby. However, Bristol is the first one to tell young women DON’T DO WHAT I DID. Her message is that she will be fine as her family has money, but most young women are not that fortunate. Personally, I think the charge of ‘hypocrite’ is way over-used. Sometimes it takes a person who has made that mistake to get the point across that its not ok. Anyone can wag their finger, but sometimes it has greater force coming from someone who has crossed the line and suffered some consequences. I know, a spread in a fashion mag is somewhat overkill and she does not deserve unlimited cash and fame, but Bristol has attempted to spread a positive message.
