Nets Attach Words 'Sexual Assault' to Trump, But Not to Clinton

October 11th, 2016 5:55 PM
As the broadcast network evening newscasts on Monday recalled both the tape from 2005 revealing Donald Trump speaking lewdly about his behavior toward women, and Trump inviting women who have accused Bill Clinton of either sexual harassment or assault to Sunday's debate, there was an obvious double standard in the willingness to use the term "sexual assault" with regard to Trump…

August 11th, 2011 10:30 PM
ABC’s Jake Tapper on Thursday night scolded Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a “gaffe” over his assertion that “corporations are people” since “everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people.” That common sense observation came in reaction to a bunch of hecklers, from a left-wing activist group, who confronted Romney in…

Sharron Angle’s Media Strategy a Lot Like Democratic Media Strategy

August 3rd, 2010 9:01 AM
Carl Cameron thinks Sharron Angle is naive. I think Sharron Angle thinks like a Democrat: Expect good media coverage, tell the media what you want to talk about, and by golly! expect friendly coverage!

FNC Highlights Baseless Lawsuits Hitting Palin

July 6th, 2009 2:12 PM
As the broadcast network evening newscasts on Friday reported on Sarah Palin's decision to resign as Alaska's Governor, they gave little attention to the toll taken on the Governor by the onslaught of frivolous lawsuits from her political enemies. But, by contrast, FNC gave much of the credit for Palin's decision to these lawsuits that have tied up the Governor's time and forced her family to…

Sarah Palin Leaker Outs Himself...and Turns Out to Be a Hoaxer

November 10th, 2008 5:35 PM
(Check out the update below. Apparently this "leaker" is actually a hoaxer. Did Carl Cameron get scammed with completely false information?
