In recent years, cable news has turned into more a political drama program than an actual presentation of the day's current events. While that may be the case, notable Christian #Pat Robertson is still making headlines due to his controversial remarks and views which were evident during his most recent broadcast.

One of the most prominent voices in the faith based community for decades has been Pat Robertson, the chief of the Christian Broadcasting Network and host of the "700 Club." While religion often dominates the show, politics finds its way into the discussion on a routine basis. On Monday night, Robertson expressed his disgust that the liberal-leaning MSNBC was now pulling in better ratings with some demographics than the conservative #Fox News.

"Those lawyers better get out of the picture and let the programmers run that network," Robertson went on to say. In addition, Robertson also went on to defend Fox News host Eric Bolling from the recent allegations that he took part in sexting and sending lewd pictures to female co-workers without their consent.
