The same day Hillary Clinton will face off against Donald Trump in the first presidential debate, more than 300 economists blasted Hillary Clinton’s economic agenda in The Hill.
Before the first 2016 presidential debate began, female celebrities had already picked their winner: Hillary Clinton. From Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian to Olivia Wilde, Hollywood declared “#ImWithHer.”
At least Hollywood acknowledges the Armenian Genocide, even if President Obama won’t. The Promise — which recently premiered at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival — is the latest historical drama directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda). Starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, the film utilizes elegant cinematography, intense action sequences and love triangles to address the horrific events of the 1915 – 1917 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.
In the least surprising development of the 2016 presidential campaign, the New York Times on Sunday endorsed “Hillary Clinton for President.” The last Republican the Times endorsed was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. What wasn’t as expected was a follow-up anti-endorsement of Donald Trump, “the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.” The NYT bravely tried to make a positive case for Clinton: "Our endorsement is rooted in respect for her intellect, experience and courage," while dismissing her classified documents scandal as "a matter for the help desk."
On Monday’s CBS This Morning, anchor Charlie Rose asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook a blunt and straightforward question about the Democratic candidate’s weaknesses, which is a rarity in the morning media world. After Rose asked Mook if Clinton was going to be on the offensive or defensive in the debate, he followed up by asking if there was any way Clinton could improve her record of trustworthiness with voters, in one debate, anyway.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, NBC correspondent Katy Tur denounced Donald Trump’s campaign team for demanding fair treatment from the press ahead of the upcoming debate: “So what they’re trying to do is find a way to best game this system. And what you’re seeing on TV, all over the airwaves, is his campaign manager and his surrogates trying to blame the media before the media has even covered the debate.”
There are a couple ways to create a new hit show: great dialogue (House), groundbreaking concept (Lost), or you can just show lots of boobs. Apparently Netflix, or Nipflix as they could be called, opted for the latter option with their latest original series, Easy.
As if the politicization of Sunday night football wasn’t enough, you can now have politics shoved down your throat while watching a concert too. At the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas on September 23, Bono warned screaming fans against a Trump presidency, or as Rolling Stone put it, “spun the Republican nominee’s gloomy rhetoric into an optimistic message.”
The LGBTQ movement strategically promotes an image of tolerance and acceptance – it’s good for their brand. Yet, after a closer look inside the ranks, it’s clear that division and prejudice exist between the community’s very members.
When will the highly left-politicized "fact checking" site known as Politifact evaluate a statement about the unemployment rate among young blacks as "Mostly True"? When Bernie Sanders says it.
When will Politifact take a very similar statement and determine that it's "Mostly False"? When Donald Trump says it — even though, if judged consistently by Sanders' strange definition of "real unemployment rate," Trump was closer to the mark than was the Vermont senator.
Appearing as a guest on Saturday's Smerconish show on CNN, former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson -- who was a presidential debate moderator in 1992 -- fretted that NBC's Lester Holt will not be aggressive enough in pressing GOP candidate Donald Trump, and will perhaps devote too much time to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified email as Secretary of State.
On Monday’s Today, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie conducted back-to-back interviews with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook and Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. While Mook was treated to softballs about Clinton’s strategy, Conway was hammered on Trump being an “aggressor” who likes to “hurl insults.”
In a contentious interview with Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie scolded the Republican nominee for joking about inviting Bill Clinton mistress Gennifer Flowers to the upcoming presidential debate and warned Trump against mentioning the former president’s sex scandals during the event.
The Washington Post and Time magazine are trying to play up the fact that debate moderator Lester Holt is a registered Republican – as if this means anything about his performance. Registering only gives you the right to vote as a Republican. It doesn’t mean that you actually do. It could just be a public-relations ploy. NBC and Holt have studiously avoided comment, perhaps because they wouldn’t want a probe of all the registered Democrats at 30 Rock.
In the September 26 edition: top newspapers want reporters to go easy on Hillary Clinton in order to save the country from the “dangerous” Donald Trump, as a New York Times columnist confesses her liberal friends want the media to give Hillary “a total free pass.” Also: CBS tweaks a video to hide Bill Clinton saying his wife has “frequently” had episodes similiar to her 9/11 collapse; CNN creates a false quote of Trump proposing “racial profiling” and then attacks him for it; and Andrea Mitchell frets that the terrorist attack in New York City will knock Hillary “off message.”
