Senator Hillary Clinton
Amidst the turmoil of all the immigrant family separation stories, the media has decided to turn to their unblemished angel, Hillary Clinton, for her insight on the controversy.
During the past few days, several news outlets -- including the New York Times and CNN -- have reported that during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, the Democratic candidate “overruled” a sexual misconduct charge made by one of her senior advisers. Most national media outlets skipped over that Clinton-embarrassing scoop.
If you wondered why Sunday evening television seemed so fun, and non-vomit inducing, it’s because CBS’s Madam Secretary was between seasons. But fear not, “Madam Hillary” is back, and they’re here to let you know that global warming will destroy the United States Navy. While President Dalton (Keith Carradine) struggles through his reelection bid, a naval base in Bahrain is hit with a tropical cyclone of epic proportions. Causing billions of dollars in damage, and at least one death.
"Blow-by-blow coverage that gives disproportionate attention to one or two candidates. Some getting short shrift or gratuitously negative coverage. A press obsession with tactics and strategy that outpaces policy differences and leadership characteristics.”
“Sound familiar?” asked James Warren, chief media writer for the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, when describing a Harvard University study regarding the 2016 presidential primary campaigns.
Every July, members of the Kennedy family get together at their compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Independence Day holiday with food, drinks and a wide variety of decorations.
This year, however, the gathering featured an unusual item: a blue-suited, golden-haired piñata resembling Donald Trump so each member of the family got to “bash” the Republican presidential candidate … literally!
It’s ironic when outspoken liberal women who moan about “women’s rights” come to the defense of men with multiple accusations of sexual crimes against women, even rape, simply because they’re Democrats. On Thursday’s The View, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar did just that, coming to the Clintons’ defense over Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusations and, along with Sunny Hostin, dismissing Broaddrick’s “credibility.”
While a guest on Howard Stern's radio show, Anderson Cooper of the Cable News Network surprised the host when he stated: “I don't think I'm going to vote. I don't think reporters should vote.”
Amazed co-host Robin Quivers then asked if he really doesn't cast any ballots in elections before stating: “That's like you're not a citizen!”
Hardball host Chris Matthews twice promoted Star Wars on his show two months after The Force Awakens director J. J. Abrams and his wife, Katie McGrath, donated to Kathleen Matthews’ congressional campaign, something Chris Matthews never disclosed.
The MSNBC anchor is currently facing calls to suspend his show after it was revealed that 48 of Matthews’ guests on Hardball had donated $79,050 to his wife’s campaign, sometimes just before or after appearing on the show.
According to an article posted on the NBC News website by Luke Russert, nine GOP members of the U.S. House of Representatives created a controversy by voting against naming a post office in Winston-Salem, N.C., after “award-winning poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou.”
Russert stated: On days when House members don't have much to do, “the body names post offices. Usually these are fairly mundane affairs; the body will unanimously vote to approve the naming of a post office no matter what member puts the request forward.”
Many people distrust information included in articles of The New York Times due to the newspaper's obviously liberal slant, but pranksters this week went a step further and distributed 10,000 copies of a false edition of the paper, which stated on its front page that Hillary Clinton had quit this year's presidential contest.
An article written by Madison Margolin for The Village Voice noted that the copies also “proclaimed that Congress would debate U.S. aid to Israel” and “were handed out across Manhattan -- at Penn Station, Grand Central, Times Square -- as well as at the Barclays Center.”
As NewsBusters reported almost a month ago, Stephen Colbert -- CBS's new late-night talk-show host -- has been losing ground to Jimmy Kimmel on ABC and NBC's Jimmy Fallon, a drop that includes many Republicans and has sent him to third place among late-night viewers.
However, David Poltrack -- chief research officer at CBS Corp. -- has stated that a more dire threat The Late Show faces is not from other late-night programs but is the play-back of prime-time episodes recorded earlier in the evening.
During Monday evening's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable network, new host Trevor Noah mocked the efforts by the Cable News Network not only to promote the first Democratic debate in the 2016 presidential contest on Tuesday, but also to add another participant to the event: vice president Joe Biden.
Noah rattled off the current candidates: former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton, junior senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders, former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley, former U.S. senator from Virginia James Webb and former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee.
