On Monday night’s Special Report, Fox News anchor Bret Baier took time to correct false reporting from MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell earlier that day claiming incompetent Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes was a “Republican,” when, in fact, the Florida official was a lifelong Democrat.
The Blaze’s Dana Loesch unleashed on the liberal media Thursday evening, during her appearance on Fox News’ The Kelly File, for creating the atmosphere for “fake news” to flourish. And she cited the Media Research Center to do it. “It was the Media Research Center and they discovered that about 8 percent of voters, they determined that maybe if what they had believed was being said about Hillary Clinton that they saw on the news, maybe if they would have believed it, it would have had an impact on the way that they voted,” she stated, “70 percent of voters don’t trust the media, that’s and MRC poll from last week.”
With the liberal media still going bonkers over Donald Trump making a legal tax deduction available to everyone, and other outlandish reports flying around, the panel on Fox News’ The Kelly File took some time Monday to poke fun at them and analyze why they’re breaking now. Anchor Megyn Kelly could barely contain her laughter after listening to colleague Trace Gallagher rattle off recent ridiculous hit pieces, “And wanted to have sex with The Apprentice staffers and says bad things. And the AG. I mean, what?!”
During Thursday night's edition of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel, the host and three panelists mocked cable television coverage of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's meeting with Paul Ryan, GOP speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Megyn Kelly led the charge by accusing the Cable News Network and MSNBC of treating Trump's arrival as if “it was the second coming." One of her favorite things in the coverage was a liberal cable channel's banner that read: “Breaking News: Trump Gives Thumbs Up Heading Into Meeting.”
In a humorous and pithy takedown of President Obama for his performance on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday, Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt appeared on Monday’s edition of The Kelly File to express his astonishment with how Obama’s reached “the point of utter incredulity, even with people who were once very admiring” like 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft who Stirewalt described as “the sort of number one Obama-nuzzler in the whole stable of Obama-nuzzlers.”
NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday actually interviewed disgraced New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.
This led Daily Beast columnist Michelle Cottle to smartly observe on Fox News’s Media Buzz, “While as a Congressman he wasn't that great, and as a mayoral candidate he’s down in the polls, his penis is still a national celebrity” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
You don't know whether to laugh or cry upon reading the Sunday night shots campaign Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen at Politico took at Mitt Romney and his campaign.
Maybe these guys really believe that the Romney campaign is the one which still desperately needs a "last chance to move the needle in any significant way in the swing states that will decide the election," and that "Obama is slightly better positioned in the states that will dictate the outcome." If they do, my take is that the Romney campaign is playing possum, and the Politico pair, infused with Beltway naiveté and skewed polling data, are gullibly buying it. Several paragraphs from their effort follow the jump (bolds are mine throughout this post):
What a difference two weeks make.
On August 30, CNN's Howard Kurtz accused Glenn Beck of attacking former green jobs czar Van Jones in retaliation for the advertising boycott the Jones-founded group Color of Change had organized against the Fox News host.
Now that Jones has been forced to resign as a result of numerous allegations uncovered and/or reported by Beck, Kurtz is wondering why most other news outlets totally ignored this story.
To refresh your memory, here's what Kurtz said about Beck on "Reliable Sources" two weeks ago (video embedded below the fold):
