As I watched Tuesday while the anchors on “Fox & Friends” leveled unsubstantiated charges against Rep. Elijah Cummings as if they were facts, I couldn't help thinking how much more dangerous Sen. Joe McCarthy might have been in the 1950s if there had been a show like this to amplify his reckless allegations. The Fox News morning show was playing one of cable talk's dirtier games, and the longtime Democratic congressman from Baltimore was its target for his role in the House IRS probe.

As early morning TV goes, the day is shaping up to be a doozy:It's Elvis' birthday, clam night at Howard Johnson's, and an 85-year-old waitress' TV debut.Horace Holmes, who's in the midst of this pre-dawn mayhem at WMAR-TV, senses the "Morning Show" is working on all cylinders and allows himself a satisfied smile during a break."Anybody who's up this early in the morning I have a bond with," he says. "We're kindred spirits."But how many people have been up since 3:15 a.m.? And how many will make it through the day -- and night -- without caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol or even junk food?

With Mitt Romney now officially President Obama's opponent, it truly appears to be game on at the Fox News channel -- at least, if this morning's "Fox & Friends" is any indication. Today's version of the morning show featured an anti-Obama video that resembled propaganda films from 1930's Europe more than it did responsible TV politics of today. And the remarkable thing was the witless crew on the couch that serves as hosts for this show had the audacity to present it as journalism and congratulate the producer who put it together.

WERQ-FM (92.3) retained its top spot among Baltimore radio stations for the three-month period ending Sept. 30, but a series of changes at the urban contemporary station, as well as the decreasing margin between it and runner-up WPOC-FM (93.1), suggests the longtime powerhouse may be hearing footsteps.Ratings for the quarter just ended showed WERQ with an overall drop in listenership of nearly 5,000 listeners in an average quarter-hour, from 33,500 to 28,800. That's still enough to keep the station at No. 1, but only 2,200 listeners now separate it from WPOC.

Seven weeks ago, a warehouse clerk in Savage was fired after a co-worker complained about his taste in morning radio: the raucous Grego and Mo show on WIYY (98 Rock), where seemingly no racial, ethnic or sexual jokes were out of bounds. Yesterday, Grego and Mo themselves were fired.Greg Onofrio and Maurice Billington, both 29, were fired after they completed their 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. show, exactly 10 months after they took to the local airwaves with an outrageous, Howard Stern-like style that has generated complaints from African-Americans and other minorities.

It is only a media footnote to the larger story of three young women who were horribly victimized looking as if they are successfully reclaiming control of their lives. But it was nevertheless fascinating to see how successfully Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, the trio of Cleveland women kidnapped and held captive for over a decade, were able to bypass the TV morning shows in delivering their message of thanks on a YouTube video Monday. The three women are exactly the kind of figures network morning television shows like "Good Morning America" and "Today" have long fought over for exclusive interviews.

"And I always felt, and what I heard from people, was that the popularity had come from the right reason," he continued.

CNN and Soledad O'Brien Thursday announced a new deal that will take her out of the morning weekday anchor chair and make her an independent producer of documentaries for the channel. The move by new CNN chief Jeff Zucker is a smooth one that keeps a talented journalist connected to the CNN brand while paving the way for the one-time executive producer of the "Today" show to launch a weekday morning show of his own design featuring Chris Cuomo and most likely Erin Burnett, who is now struggling in the ratings weeknights at 7 p.m. on CNN. The new deal gives O'Brien, an award-winning correspondent for her work on such CNN productions as "Black in America," a guaranteed income producing non-fiction programs for the channel through a production company she will form.
