On Friday's Fox and Friends, and again on Fox and Friends Saturday, Fox News Channel gave coverage to a story ignored by the other networks as the show recalled for viewers that two illegal immigrants have been charged with murdering a El Dorado County, California, police officer, Brian Ishmael, who was shot to death on October 23 while responding to reports of a robbery.
While 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris is not leading in any national polls or major fund-raising efforts, the California senator is ahead in a significant category for the Democratic Party: Hollywood celebrities, who have contributed $1.1 million to her campaign so far. As further proof that entertainment is wildly disconnected from people across the country, Pete Buttigieg -- the homosexual mayor of South Bend, Indiana -- is Hollywood’s second choice, with more than $922,000 coming from stars in the entertainment business during the third quarter of 2019.
Over the past several days, in contrast with the other networks, Fox News Channel has been giving attention to one of the Parkland parents who is pro-gun and blames President Barack Obama and other Democrats for school policies making it easier for Nikolas Cruz to murder his daughter, Meadow, and 16 other students at Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Andrew Pollack has appeared on a number of Fox News shows to promote his new book, Why Meadow Died, which gives the results of his own investigative efforts into the school's history of covering up Cruz's severe behavioral problems that should have already landed him with a criminal record, making it harder for him to purchase his murder weapon.
WASHINGTON -- Forty years ago this past Sunday, more than 900 men, women and children killed themselves or were murdered in Jonestown, Guyana. Geography buffs will note that Jonestown is just east of Venezuela, where yet another crazed left-wing experiment is being played out today, though on a much larger scale. And hence, the prospect of death on an even grander scale is still possible in that once prosperous country.
While condemning the President’s visit this past weekend to California to witness the devastating wildfires himself and his comment on the topic, BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay argued on Monday’s Morning Joe that climate change “is probably the most pressing issue of our time.”
Republican John Cox is the dictionary definition of an underdog in the California governor's race against liberal Democrat Gavin Newsom. On average, he's down 29 points in the polls. So why are the "fact checkers" focusing on him? Bill Zeiser, editor of the Real Clear Politics Fact Check Review, noted both PolitiFact and The Washington Post are trying to pick apart Cox's claims.
The ongoing struggle between Democrats and Republicans over illegal immigration took a major turn on Monday, when Thomas Homan -- acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency -- sharply criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Pelosi for drawing a bright line against the federal lawsuit alleging California is nullifying federal law enforcement on immigration. She said "We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities.”
The legion of the perpetually aggrieved "white supremacy"-obsessed jumped on a Monday remark by Trump administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions to concoct a bogus "racial dogwhistle" when he used the term "Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement" in a speech to the National Sheriffs' Association. Five days in, many of them still haven't acknowledged that former President Barack Obama and others in his administration have used the term without generating controversy.
With sexual harassment in the news in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is it really a good time to hold a political fundraiser for someone who used his position of power to gain sexual advantage from the wife of someone who once ran his political campaign? Movie star Reese Witherspoon held a political fundraiser on Friday at her home for the gubernatorial campaign of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who admitted to an affair in 2007 with the wife of the campaign manager for his election as San Francisco mayor.
This apparent hypocrisy served as material for the creative juices of infamous street artist Sabo who placed a rather, um, unique door hanger at many homes in Witherspoon's neighborhood.
Bill Maher is on a hiatus from his HBO Real Time show until January. However, that doesn't mean he isn't still providing a bit of humor even if it's inadvertent. And Maher's latest bit of unintentional humor comes in the form of a presidential endorsement for 2020. What his endorsement reveals is how laughably shallow the Democrat field of potential candidates is.
NewsBusters has chronicled a slew of media reactions both on-air and print in the hours and days since Donald Trump’s stunning presidential election upset of Hillary Clinton, but stories like one posted late Friday for Saturday’s print edition of The New York Times about West Coast liberals proved that such meltdowns will be here to stay for the near future.
With MSNBC Live host Thomas Roberts holding serve from Santa Monica, California on Tuesday afternoon, he brought on none other than NBC News special correspondent and former California First Lady Maria Shriver to demand the American people “pause...to think about how this is historic and unprecedented” for Hillary Clinton to become the first female presumptive presidential nominee.
