July 21st, 2020 10:00 AM

Bob Costas is set to bring "valuable opinions" as a contributor to a new employer -- CNN. Some of those opinions made him very unpopular during his many years at NBC, where he bloviated about gun control, the future of football and team nicknames during NFL broadcasts. He left NBC, for whom he also hosted the Olympics for 24 years, in 2017, not on the best of terms.

CNN Bashes FNC as Irresponsible on Virus, But Still Held Public Event

April 6th, 2020 5:16 PM
As the coronavirus pandemic has worsened, CNN has emphasized bleak outcomes, Trump hatefests, and venomous, tiresome Fox News-bashing the cornerstones of their coverage instead of first informing viewers and providing hope. However, one thing that these charlatans have shied away from is their own culpability, including their downplaying of the virus, barely covering it (in favor of…

Bloomberg's Magazine Touts How CNN's Boss 'Defined 2019' for Democrats

December 9th, 2019 4:27 PM
Bloomberg Businessweek magazine penned a puff piece on CNN president Jeff Zucker for its "Bloomberg 50" cover package on "The people who defined 2019." CNN defined 2019? And Fox -- often with double or triple the viewership -- did not? Bloomberg's magazine also picked losers like Stacey Abrams and Greta Thunberg.

Stelter Interviews His Boss: 'Smarmiest, Dishonest, Squirm-Inducing'

November 2nd, 2019 4:30 PM
Before it completely vanishes from public consciousness, we'd like to add one take to Brian Stelter's interview with his boss Jeff Zucker at the Citizen by CNN conference. David Marcus at The Federalist had a strong opinion: "By the end of the half hour, I can honestly say I had experienced the smarmiest, most self-congratulatory, dishonest, and squirm-inducing discussion I have ever…

CNN President Jeff Zucker: I’m ‘Very Open’ to Talk With Shepard Smith

October 17th, 2019 1:12 AM
In an interview spanning the last 30 minutes of Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Megyn Kelly returned to television for the first time since NBC News cut ties with her and, appearing on her old home Fox News, Kelly lambasted the liberal media in the second half of the interview for their rampant, anti-Trump bias with a “hyperfocus on impeachment.” Carlson pivoted to “…

Climate Change and the Democrats

September 13th, 2019 2:24 PM
WASHINGTON — Climate change is one of those issues that the bien-pensants around the world all agree upon. We must act! If we do not act, people will lose their beach houses. Plants will wither and die. Birds will fall from the sky. Just last week, whole communities in the Caribbean were swept away. There are, however, problems with eliminating or ameliorating climate change. For one thing…

CNN Boss: 'Trump Has Hurt Our Perception Among Republicans'

July 30th, 2019 4:29 PM
CNN president Jeff Zucker was laughably understated in discussing his network's terrible ratings, telling The Washington Post "I think Trump has hurt our perception among Republicans to some degree." And CNN's own rampant bias had nothing to do with it? 

CNN Boss Hosted ‘Power Breakfast’ for Kamala Harris Before Senate Win

July 29th, 2019 10:18 PM
In a jarring report put out by McClatchy’s DC Bureau on Monday, and “confirmed” by a “CNN spokeswoman”, CNN boss Jeff Zucker was so impressed with then-District Attorney Kamala Harris that he hosted a 2009 “power breakfast” in order to “introduce her to ‘some of the leading movers and shakers in New York,’” ahead of her successful…

CNN Has Double-Digit Monthly Ratings Loss in Primetime … Again

June 5th, 2019 9:20 AM
If it weren’t for bad luck, CNN would have no luck at all -- especially when it comes to ratings during the network’s vitally important primetime schedule. In May, the channel lost 16 percent of its weekday evening audience from the previous month, falling to just 761,000 viewers and winding up dead last among such cable networks as liberal rival MSNBC and the dominant Fox News…

USA Today Spikes Op-Ed for Using ‘Not Reliable’ Conservative Sources

March 28th, 2019 11:15 PM
Ever since USA Today was founded in 1982, people at the national weekday newspaper have tried to maintain a reputation as a “centrist” media outlet.

ICYMI: Federalist’s Sean Davis Throws Liberal Media Through a Buzzsaw

March 27th, 2019 6:41 PM
For those who either didn’t watch Tuesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight or want to relive it, The Federalist’s Sean Davis made a rare TV appearance and absolutely lambasted the liberal media for their years-long narrative that the President and his team colluded with Russians, calling this falsehood “probably the biggest, most consequential screw up of the last 25 to 50 years.…
