The National Rifle Association responded to YouTube’s announcement that it will ban more gun-related videos by accusing the site of “political posturing and censorship.” In a statement reported by The Hill, a YouTube spokesperson announced that starting next month, the site will broaden its ban on gun-related content. The new rules will prohibit videos that show how to assemble firearms and videos that advertise websites where users can purchase guns and gun accessories.
Shepard Smith, a long-time anchor for the Fox News Channel, signed a new multi-year contract on Thursday, when he stated during an interview with Joe Concha, a media reporter for The Hill political website, that opinion programming on his network doesn't “really have rules” and exists “strictly to be entertaining.”
To the shock of no one (at least in the NewsBusters newsroom), the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored on Friday morning the stunning revelation that the Clinton Foundation is under FBI investigation for possible crimes while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. FNC’s Fox & Friends was the only cable or network morning show to confirm and cover the story, spending eight minutes and 50 seconds (minus teasers) on the Clinton Foundation.
In a video statement posted on Tuesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell offered a blistering critique of the “big three” networks for censoring and downplaying reports concerning the Russian uranium deal brokered in the Obama administration by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
RESTON, VA — Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell blasted the media’s censorship in a Monday morning statement of the developing Uranium scandal involving the Clintons and Obama Administration.
Why the collective liberal media yawn on the multi-headed Democratic scandals surfacing everywhere except on their pages and airwaves? It's not that the stories are too far-fetched and thin to interest self-respecting journalists, because they are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny.
CNN briefly ended their network-wide blackout on Wednesday afternoon of the massive Russian uranium story with a 19-second recap of President Trump’s comments moments earlier in the Oval Office about The Hill’s investigation. “The big story is the uranium that was purchased — that was obtained by the Russians during the Obama administration. He says that's one of the big stories — one of the worst stories of the past decade,” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
On Thursday’s Morning Joe, after days of ignoring The Hill’s latest reporting confirming an extensive racketeering scheme organized by Russian government officials that appeared to directly benefit Bill and Hillary Clinton, the show finally decided to cover the story. However, instead of getting worked up about unethical or possibly illegal Clinton-Russian collusion, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski attacked Trump for tweeting about the new revelations.
On Wednesday, The Hill reported that a key FBI informant involved in the investigation of the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal was threatened by the Obama administration and warned not to publicly disclose details. Also, at a Senate hearing that same day, Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised that the Justice Department would take “appropriate action” in response to the new information.So how much time have the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks devoted to the growing story this week? As of Thursday morning, a grand total of ZERO seconds.
New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday.

On Tuesday, The Hill reported new revelations in the scandal surrounding Russia’s obtaining control of American uranium and its payments to The Clinton Foundation.

Leading off his eponymous Fox News Channel show on Monday, Tucker Carlson delayed bringing on a liberal guest to debate the day’s news in order to spend a few moments lambasting how those NFL players protesting the National Anthem were “giving the rhetorical finger to the country that made them rich.” Carlson was later assisted by The Hill’s Joe Concha as the two lit into the “media bubble” for not understanding how upsetting the protests have been for average Americans.
