After CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and American Urban Radio Networks correspondent/CNN political analyst April Ryan, the bronze medalist in carnival barking would have to be fellow CNN political analyst, Playboy correspondent, and Sentinel Newspapers editor Brian Karem. Karem had his press pass suspended on August 2 a la Acosta did last year and, like in that case, the White House was on the losing end as, on September 3 a federal judge demanded that Karem have his pass restored.



CNN analyst Brian Karem, the "senior [read: only] White House reporter" for the porn magazine Playboy, announced on Twitter Friday that the White House suspended his "hard pass" effective Monday for 30 days. The letter from press secretary Stephanie Grisham cited his behavior at Trump's social media summit on July 11, where he verbally attacked Trump's conservative guests: "This is a group of people that are eager for demonic possession."



Needless to say, it’s safe to assume that CNN and Jeffrey Zucker are proud of political analyst and Playboy White House correspondent Brian Karem following his shouting match Thursday with Salem Radio Network host Sebastian Gorka. If so, it would further illustrate why CNN isn’t a serious news organization.



Squirrel, Pilgrim! Things aren’t going so well at the moment in the culture wars? You went all in on a hate crime that turned out to be a hoax? Your dignified Indian elder Marine veteran wasn’t much of a veteran and the Covington kids did nothing to him? How about the minstrel show in the Virginia Capital? Take heart, progressives. You can dig up an American icon and knock him down cost-free and with no risk he’ll defend himself! Jussie Smollett’s story may have been fiction, but John Wayne was real and he was conservative. Therefore, he can be vilified. It doesn’t matter that the Duke rode off into the sunset in 1979 -- why not pour a bit of your perpetual outrage in the Wayback Machine and head over to Twitter for some gasping about … a 48 year old interview with the star.



Michael Shannon: He’s a great actor, but, right now, he’s behaving like an unhinged lefty maniac. In a recent interview with Playboy, the Waco actor gave his two cents on the Trump administration in such an overzealous manner that it left many fans wondering whether he was in the terminal stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome.



On Tuesday, 2018's first White House press briefing showed that the media have picked up where 2017 left off by making fools of themselves with dumb and nonsensical questions. This time, topics included college football in red states, that infamous white box truck, and working during the holidays.



Who would have thought we’d actually come to miss Hugh Heffner? The old libertine’s PJs are barely cold and the magazine he founded to showcase nude women has turned to showcasing … nude sort-of women. Playboy wants everyone to “Meet your November 2017 Playmate Ines Rau.” Problem is, Ines isn’t really a girl.



Sentinel Newspapers (Montgomery County, MD) and Playboy correspondent Brian Karem announced on Thursday night that he was hired as a CNN contributor, marking the culmination of Karem’s rise to fame thanks to throwing a hissy fit during a White House press briefing.



Following his increasingly infamous spat with Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the credibility of the media’s recent reporting, Brian Karem, writer for The Sentinel and Playboy, took to the airwaves to vent his concerns to other highly regarded news intellectuals. This eventually led him to the entirely credible, and not at all untrustworthy, person of Brian Williams. “They've never admitted a mistake,” Karem whined and huffed incessantly to Brian, “There is never any accountability, yet they want to flip the script and hold us accountable while not accepting any responsibility themselves and that's a very childish maneuver.”



Fresh off his newfound stardom after arguing with White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday afternoon, The Sentinel and Playboy writer Brian Karem told MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews that he (and the press corps) are “tired of being paddled” as liberal pushers of fake news.



Pro-life Christians have got it all wrong. God actually wants some people to get abortions. At least, that’s one way Chelsea Handler justifies the pro-choice movement. The talk show host has always been open about her choice to abort her own teenage pregnancies. She has no regrets about the choice(s) she made at 16. In a recent essay penned for Playboy magazine, Handler wrote that “I’m 41 now. I don’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby.”



Playboy has jettisoned the nudity, but the Interview remains, and its subject in the new issue is MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who discusses topics such as her fondness for the music of Thelonious Monk; the recipe for a cocktail called an Aviation; and (mostly) politics.

Maddow declares that she’ll never run for office and says an imaginary Maddow presidency would consist of her “getting sworn in and handing it over to my vice president, Amy Klobuchar, before immediately resigning.” Other highlights include her comment that "if the Democrats use their political might in the 2016 election, within four years the NRA could be effectively dead in terms of strangle-holding those federal issues."
