During a 10 a.m. press conference on Thursday, Fred Warmbier, the father of freed North Korean hostage Otto Warmbier, thanked the Trump administration for aiding in the release of his son while voicing his displease with the Obama administration’s handling of the situation. In the coverage on MSNBC that followed, Warmbier’s comments were dismissed as “rhetoric” from “someone who isn’t necessarily politically sophisticated.”
On Tuesday, Time Inc. announced yet another in a long series of corporate downsizings. Wednesday evening, a horrid post by Time.com reporters Melissa Chan and Jennifer Calfas on "What to Know About Suspected Virginia Shooter James Hodgkinson" illustrated why the parent company is and deserves to be a continually shrinking enterprise.
In the wake of the attack which injured Congressman Steve Scalise and several others, the mainstream media rushed to explain away the narrative that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, was a radical progressive who hated Republicans. They opted instead to lay the blame at the feet of a toxic political environment created by none other than President Donald Trump. Co-host Mika Brzezinski obsequiously did so on Thursday’s Morning Joe when she proclaimed, “What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this President is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news.”
After a Bernie Sanders-supporting, Republican-hating gunman attempted to slaughter GOP Congressmen, CBS This Morning host Charlie Rose on Thursday wondered if it was Donald Trump who needed to show "civility." Talking to Republican Congressman Gary Palmer about violence at a baseball practice, Rose suggested, “Do we begin with leadership from the White House in terms of trying to cool down things and trying to create more civility and trying to create a more common ground?”
During a promotional tour for her new memoir – Chasing Grace – Christian sprinter Sanya Richards-Ross shared a sobering fact: every female track athlete she knows has had an abortion.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday issued the following statement blasting the New York Times Editorial Board for their intentionally fallacious editorial on the Alexandria shooting.
The media seem allergic to reporting on the ongoing crisis in Venezuela. On June 12, protesters set fire to the country’s supreme court, after it “voted to reject a motion that would prevent Mr. Maduro from rewriting the country's constitution,” according to The Telegraph. Yet, the morning and evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC failed to mention this major incident even once.
In a pre-recorded report on Thursday's New Day, CNN correspondent Randi Kaye repeated a discredited claim that Republican Rep. Steve Scalise 15 years ago spoke to a group founded by white supremacist and former KKK leader David Duke. As if the assertion that he spoke to the group were not in dispute, Kaye recalled: "Questions were raised about a speech he gave to a group led by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke back in 2002."
Amidst all the political points made at the Tony awards, Patti Lupone, star of War Paint, had her own personal message for Donald Trump.
According to Elle Magazine, she was approached by a reporter who asked her why Donald Trump should see her show.
Trevor Noah is once again hoping that people won’t see him as an angry talk show host. He’s just here to offer some “perspective.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg, the host of The Daily Show gave a synopsis of his life story and also explained what he brought to the Daily Show, formerly hosted by Jon Stewart.
The Washington, D.C. area and political junkies around the country were left in a state of shock Wednesday, in the wake of the horrific attack on Congressional Republicans at a baseball field. As would be expected, the shooting dominated the evening broadcasts of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). But in a pleasant twist, all three avoided pushing the liberal talking points for gun-control, while at the same time, welcoming President Trump’s unifying address.
Reading the Rolling Stone cover story and interview of Rachel Maddow – at the same time that it’s reported the magazine is settling for $1.6 million with a fraternity it smeared with an utterly phony rape story from the University of Virginia – is jaw-dropping. Janet Reitman of Rolling Stone shamelessly asks Maddow questions including “Do you marvel at the degree to which the administration just blatantly lies?” And: “Have you found the whole fake-news and ‘alternative facts’ stuff to be a distraction?” For her part, Maddow proclaims she is a “cheerleader for the American media."
In the wake of this morning’s shootings in Alexandria, Virginia and San Francisco, NBC pulled the episode of The Carmichael Show set to air today, “Shoot-Up-Able,” which was supposed to revolve around a mass shooting. Instead, NBC aired “Lesbian Wedding,” a more light-hearted episode originally set to air on June 28. Unlike last week’s episode which promoted a clear liberal political agenda, having Joe (David Alan Grier) and his sons help Joe’s mother commit suicide, this week the show remembered it’s a comedy and offered some funny dialogue about a family member’s lesbian wedding
After the horrific news broke that a politically motivated gunman opened fire on Congressional Republicans Wednesday, there was a collective call from politicos to be more responsible with the rhetoric they use as so not to promote hate. Apparently, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews didn’t get the memo as he took to his show, Hardball and proceeded to smear Republicans. “Good evening. I'm Chris Matthews in Washington. Donald Trump and his ties with Moscow remain the big story here even on a day struck by violence,” he announced as he started his show.
A bill that sets into motion a full-scale house-cleaning at the Veterans Administration - has so far been ignored by the national evening newscasts of ABC and CBS, as well as Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo.
