Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to react to Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump in the GOP presidential race, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones declared that it was "horrifying" to see the two together, and asserted that "Tina Fey couldn't have done a more incoherent, inarticulate sort of caricature of Sarah Palin…
Bloomberg Columnist: Tina Fey, Jon Stewart More Universal Than Pope
April 6th, 2015 6:16 PM
I hadn't before seen Will Leitch, the Deadspin creator who now writes on politics for Bloomberg, in action. But on today's With All Due Respect, I found him funny and affable.
Even so, he made one left-leaning assertion so absurd it was too much even for show host John Heilemann. Running parallel with the NCAA tourney, Bloomberg has been running a …
Campbell Brown Nixes Dennis Miller for Daily Show: 'Right Wing'
March 9th, 2015 6:09 PM
Did Campbell Brown just give away a dirty little secret: that conservatives are blacklisted in the entertainment business?
On today's With All Due Respect, Brown and John Heilemann were kicking around the results of a poll as to whom Americans prefer to replace Jon Stewart as Daily Show host. Tina Fey came in first, with Dennis Miller a close…

Cable ‘News’ Network: CNN Devotes Multiple Segments to Mockery, Cr
March 21st, 2013 1:17 PM
Is this Jeff Zucker's new vision for CNN? Instead of reporting hard-hitting news, Thursday's 9 a.m. ET hour of Newsroom featured conservatives getting whacked by a gauntlet of talking heads, celebrities, and centrist and liberal guests. And anchor Carol Costello added a liberal lament of "Will Gitmo ever close?"
Here were some "stories" that CNN devoted whole…
Pelosi Called 'Jackass' Before Cameo Appearance on '30 Rock' Finale
February 2nd, 2013 2:58 PM
Liberals were all atwitter a few months ago over the news that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was going to be doing a cameo role on the series finale of 30 Rock.
I wonder how they felt when she was called a "jackass” right before her appearance (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Julianne Moore Praises Tina Fey and Katie Couric for Making 'Significa
January 14th, 2013 9:57 AM
It certainly was no surprise that HBO's schlockudrama "Game Change" won best TV movie at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
But when Julianne Moore accepted her award for best actress for her role in said piece of detritus, it was truly sick-making hearing her say, "I'd like to give a shoutout to two people who I think made a significant difference in 2008 election, Tina…
NBC's Hurricane Sandy Telethon Never Once Mentions Obama
November 3rd, 2012 12:36 PM
When NBC announced Thursday it was doing a "Coming Together" telethon to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims, many people including myself worried that given the list of scheduled performers, it would turn into a one-hour Obama campaign ad.
Much to my surprise and delight, Matt Lauer and guests did a classy, somber, respectful, and at times tear-jerking presentation totally…

May 10th, 2011 12:01 AM
As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC's Tina Fey once again impersonated former Alaska governor Sarah Palin while guest hosting this weekend's "Saturday Night Live."

Tina Fey As Palin: 'We Finally Vanquished One of the World's Great Vil
May 8th, 2011 8:06 AM
NBC's Tina Fey guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live" last evening, and viewers could hardly be surprised her network took the opportunity to once again use her to bash former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
In a mock Republican presidential candidates debate, before depicting Palin as an idiot that doesn't fully understand English, Fey did manage to take a humorous swipe at the…
To Review Tina Fey Memoir, NPR Hires...Janeane Garofalo
April 6th, 2011 11:07 PM
In the midst of Republicans insisting on defunding NPR, the network thumbed its nose at the GOP again on Tuesday night's All Things Considered newscast by having a book review offered by hard-left "comedian" and failed radio host Janeane Garofalo. The book she reviewed was Tina Fey's new memoir, titled Bossypants. Garofalo spent most of the review in a rut of self-pity, but…
