    CBS paid more than $5 million in a settlement agreement reached in the 1990s with a woman who claimed former '60 minutes' executive producer Doug Hewitt sexually assaulted her, the New York Times reported Thursday. Lawyers hired by CBS to investigate the workplace culture of '60 Minutes' are set to present a report to the board next week, according to the Times, which obtained a draft. The report, precipitated by the high profile removals of '60 Minutes' producer Jeff Fager and CBS chief executive Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations, found the program's separation from the larger company to be...
  • Trump: 60 Minutes did a phony story about child separation when we had the same policy as Obama

    @60Minutes did a phony story about child separation when they know we had the exact same policy as the Obama Administration. In fact a picture of children in jails was used by other Fake Media to show how bad (cruel) we are, but it was in 2014 during O years. Obama separated.... ....children from parents, as did Bush etc., because that is the policy and law. I tried to keep them together but the problem is, when you do that, vast numbers of additional people storm the Border. So with Obama seperation is fine, but with Trump it’s not. Fake...

    Mike Cernovich is about to debut his long-awaited movie about “fake news,” a visual broadside on the hypocrisy seen often in liberal media and the clearest explanation yet of his tactics popular on conservative social media channels. In “Hoaxed,” a quick-paced two-hour documentary, he says, “All media is narratives and we are in a war of narratives.” The crowd-funded “Hoaxed” sticks it to big media like "60 Minutes" and others for playing favorites with Democrats. For example, Cernovich shows video of media figures questioning the health and mind of President Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but ignoring the signs...

    Variety ^ | OCTOBER 14, 2018 | Daniel Daddario
    The President talked over Lesley Stahl in a relentless blast of rhetoric that seemed more rally than interview ......the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length..... Lesley Stahl’s interview with Trump was an undeniable get; he’d been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC’s Lester Holt and indicated he’d fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russia investigation. But the interview seemed governed by two motives, both of...

    "I'm the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didn't. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets," Trump said. President Trump claims his administration has been tougher on Russia than his predecessor's, arguing that former President Obama allowed Russia to annex Ukraine and only offered them "pillows and blankets." "I'm the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didn't. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets. I'm the one -- and he's the one that gave away a part of Ukraine where Russia," Trump said in a "60...

    President Trump said he has “no intention” of shutting down special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl asked Trump in an interview that aired Sunday if he would pledge not to shut down probe. “Well, I don’t pledge anything,” Trump said. “But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.” When pressed on why he wouldn't make a pledge, Trump said he didn’t want to. “Why should I pledge to you? If...

    When Shakespeare wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” he may have been right — then. Today, our definition of words is much more fluid and the latest debate centers around the word “mob,” defined by the dictionary as “a crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble.” Cell phone videos proliferate of scenes such as the group chanting, “We believe survivors,” as they crowded around Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife on a dinner date, screaming and driving the couple from the restaurant. Defenders of the screamers characterize them...

The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.

Jim Jordan, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, announced Thursday he plans to mount an anti-establishment run for speaker of the House -- presuming Republicans keep control of the chamber. “Should the American people entrust us with the majority again in the 116th Congress, I plan to run for Speaker of the House to bring real change to the House of Representatives," Jordan said in a statement.

    She is viewed highly among Republicans and Independents, with a rating of 83 percent and 55 percent, respectively. However, among Democrats, only 28 percent view her favorably, with 56 percent of Democrats viewing her as unfavorably. . . The first lady stirred up controversy in June when she wore a jacket with the words “I Don’t Care, Do U?” on her way to visit a children’s detention center in Texas. “It was for the people, and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me, and I want to show them that I don’t care,”

    The Hill ^ | 10/14/18 | SHARYL ATTKISSON
    The first hint came about a month and a half ago. A well-connected Democrat laid out a new scenario to me. It went something like this: “Democrats will take over the House and possibly the Senate after the midterms. We’ll demand that Trump release his tax returns. He won’t do it. The fight will become a legal battle. It’ll go to the Supreme Court. We’ll impeach him over it. That’s how we’ll finally get Trump.” I had a few reactions to this stated strategy. First, I can’t imagine that such an effort would reach fruition before 2020, when President Trump’s...

    "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager is leaving CBS News "effective immediately" amid allegations of inappropriate behavior, the company announced on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program," CBS News president David Rhodes said in a statement. A New Yorker article in August implicated Fager, along with former CBS CEO Les Moonves, in a series of allegations of sexual misconduct at the company. Moonves stepped down from his position earlier this week.

    An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow and his senior counsel Carly Gammill appeared in a Washington D.C. federal court last week to find out when they will be receiving documents related to the Obama unmasking scandal. The ACLJ (American Center For Law and Justice) filed a FOIA lawsuit last summer and they are just now beginning to receive documents. Sekulow revealed the first batch of unmasking documents on his radio show Jay Live on Tuesday. The ACLJ received heavily redacted emails from former US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power that show unprecedented unmasking and political bias in the final...

    Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity—his lifeless body hanging from a tree. Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching...

    Stormy Daniels’ lawyer said there’s more to the porn star’s “60 Minutes” interview about a sexual affair with President Trump — including a description of the commander-in-chief’s private parts — but it didn’t make the cut because “they’re a conservative network.” “When she sat for that interview, it actually lasted over two hours in length, the actual interview,” Michael Avenatti told NBC’s “Megan Kelly Today” on Wednesday. “And then the portion that the American public saw was only 14 or 16 minutes of actual interview time on ‘60 Minutes.’” Asked what details the interview left out, Avenatti said CBS is...
