How political were the 60th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night? According to host James Corden, the music audience's response to Hillary Clinton "might have been the biggest cheer of the night."
On Friday, the CBS Evening News was the only one of the three broadcast network evening newscasts that informed viewers of revelations that Hillary Clinton in 2008 allowed an advisor, Burns Strider, accused of sexual harassment to remain a part of her campaign -- thus demonstrating another example of hypocrisy by the former Democratic candidate.
On Thursday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, during a discussion of Republicans pushing theories of a "secret society" within the FBI that is trying to undermine President Donald Trump, Republican-leaning MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan likened the issue to the fake "Pizzagate" story that resulted in a deranged gunman storming into a pizza restaurant.
The word “doomsday” is intended to terrify. So moving the Doomsday Clock forward to just two minutes to midnight gives journalists a chance for a national freakout about the chance of nuclear war. Only one problem with that. The two academics helping make this news are liberals who have given to the left eight times more than the right.
On Friday, the College of William & Mary announced that former FBI Director James Comey, a 1982 graduate, will "will teach a three-credit course on ethical leadership" beginning this fall. Establishment press coverage of Comey's assignment, coinciding with being named "an executive professor in education," has mostly avoided the myriad reasons why having him teach such a course is a horrible lapse in judgment by W&M.
WASHINGTON — Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year's good news. It was the economy: gross domestic product was up some 3 percent and, for the last quarter, nearly 4 percent; unemployment was down to a 17-year low, with black unemployment at the lowest level since such statistics were compiled. The stock market was soaring, up some 40 percent since Donald Trump was elected, and inflation was low.
Since last Thursday, the liberal media have been going wild with accusations that President Trump was racist when it was leaked that he referred to select counties as “s***holes.” And during that time, the evening broadcasts for three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated 41 minutes and 43 seconds to that comment and the fallout. But despite their vocal concerns of Russia meddling in U.S. affairs, they have been dead silent on an indictment related to the Uranium One scandal that was unsealed by the Department of Justice last Friday.
Schadenfreude, schadenfreude, oh beautiful, beautiful schadenfreude! You will soon be able to enjoy some great Election Night 2016 schadenfreude again in the form of HBO's documentary, The Final Year, which will soon be broadcast on that network. As you can see from the trailer below it appears to be mostly a big borefest of Obama administration hype about how wonderful and wise they were. However, its saving grace is that the HBO film crew was at a Hillary "victory" party hosted by former UN Ambassador Samantha Power to celebrate Hillary Clinton winning the election.
Bye-bye Hillary? Amy Chozick’s profile on the front of the New York Times Sunday Review featured the headline “Without Her.” It was a regretful (possible) goodbye to Hillary the high-profile feminist heroine, while crediting her with igniting the #MeToo movement, and postponing mention of her inconvenient husband as long as possible: "Hillary Clinton, the first woman who had a real shot at the presidency, has finally set off a national awakening among women. The only catch? She did it by losing."
On Friday, New York magazine blog The Cut published a January 5, 2016 video of MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews jokingly asking his staff for water and the “Bill Cosby pill I brought with me” prior to an interview with Hillary Clinton. While Matthews apologized, this marked the latest evidence of inappropriate behavior by Matthews and the third story in less than a month with the first two coming thanks to The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey.
The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks engaged in a feeding frenzy over Michael Wolff’s gossip-filled book, as they ate up the salacious details in Fire and Fury. From January 3 through January 9, the networks stuffed their evening and morning programs with over two hours of coverage of the Wolff book and the subsequent fallout for former Donald Trump aide Stephen Bannon.
Towards the end of their political coverage during Sunday Today, NBC fill-in host Morgan Radford questioned Meet The Press moderator Chuck Todd about the veracity of a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation, which came to light last week. But in doing so, she conflated it with GOP senators asking the FBI for a criminal investigation in Christopher Steele, the British agent who worked with Russian agents to get dirt of President Trump on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, and claimed it was all “fake news.”
