    After Senate Republicans unveiled their ObamaCare replacement on Thursday, ABC smeared the bill during World News Tonight with claims that people were going to pay more for less and that Medicaid was being cut. On Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos took to his show, This Week to continue their smear campaign. “The President right there said no cuts in Medicaid … Why is the President going back on his promise,” he rudely yelled at Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway. According to Stephanopoulos, “A lot of senators have questions about the Senate bill. Particularly those cuts in Medicaid. More than $800 billion.”...

    Civil rights groups are expressing concern that a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment is fueling the growth of right wing extremism across the United States, citing dozens of anti-Sharia demonstrations across the U.S. this weekend and an ongoing uptick in online recruitment. Police in Seattle and St. Paul, Minnesota, made arrests after fighting broke out during a series of marches across the U.S. on Saturday against Sharia, a strict form of Islamic law. The marches, launched by ACT for America, a self-described non-profit national security organization, is run by vocal supporters of President Donald Trump.

    STATEMENT BY DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN ON ANONYMOUS ALLEGATIONS Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous officials, particularly when they do not identify the country let alone the branch or agency of government with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.

    [snip] Compounds such as ammonium hydroxide, ammonium phosphate and ammonium chloride are considered safe in small amounts. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted ammonium hydroxide status as a GRAS, or Generally Recognized as Safe, substance in 1974. Ammonium hydroxide is also an acceptable ingredient under the conditions of "good manufacturing practices" in dozens of foods, from soft drinks to soups to canned vegetables, according to the General Standards for Food Additives set forth by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a group funded by the World Health Organization and the United Nations' Food and Agricultural Organization.

    (ELK POINT, S.D.) In this rural outpost of just over 1,900 residents, a local college student has become a courtroom sketch artist, trailers on Main Street are ersatz offices for a major law firm and members of an agricultural youth club are puzzled by a new metal detector at the local courthouse. The changes are part of Elk Point's selection as site of a multibillion-dollar defamation case pitting ABC News against South Dakota-meat processor, Beef Products Inc. The company contends that ABC and reporter Jim Avila defamed it by referring to its signature product as "pink slime" in 2012 broadcasts....

    In the days and hours leading up to a hearing of the Senates Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBC, and NBC) were giddy at the prospect of two heads of U.S. intelligence agencies fingering President Trump in a plot to shut down the Russian investigation. But after the two and a half hour long hearing, they werent kicking themselves for getting their hopes up, they were kicking Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and NSA Director Michael Rogers for not giving them what they wanted. .. The anonymous claims about Trump pressuring high-ranking intelligence officials were...

    ABC News is reporting that Current and former CIA officers speaking to ABC News on the condition of confidentiality say the United States scrambled to get all the suspects off European soil before Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived there today. The officers say 11 top al Qaeda suspects have now been moved to a new CIA facility in the North African desert. The disgrunted intelligence officers even disclosed an actual list of 12 high-value targets allegedly held by the CIA, and ABC is reporting it : Abu Zubaydah: Held first in Thailand then Poland Ibn Al-Shaykh al-Libi: Held in...

    On Friday, all three network morning shows began with anchors breathlessly declaring that President Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner was “under scrutiny” in the FBI’s Russia investigation. However, after offering the screaming salacious headlines, each broadcast quietly admitted that Kushner was not the target of the investigation nor was he accused of any wrongdoing. Opening NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer hyped: “Under scrutiny, President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, now part of the FBI’s Russia investigation.” Minutes later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie promised viewers there was “fresh turmoil facing the Trump administration.” Correspondent Peter Alexander further sensationalized the...

    Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for canceled Tim Allen comedy Last Man Standing. Speaking to Variety Thursday, studio presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman said that they were surprised by ABCs decision to pull the plug on the show. Thats the one thats really an open sore right now, Davis said. Kurtzman added, We really were expecting a pickup. The fact that we didnt get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen, such a huge star with such a huge following. But the...

    More than a quarter-million people have put their names to a petition demanding ABC bring back the highly-rated conservative sitcom Last Man Standing. The fan-created Change.org petition titled Save Tim Allens Show Last Man Standing has garnered more than 275,000 signatures in less than a weeks time. Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values, petition creator Deputy Matt wrote. Last Man Standing is one of the...

    The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allens hit comedy Last Man Standing comes on the heels of CBS Stephen Colberts obscenity-laced rant against Donald Trump and underscores how far the media thought police have gone in their war on conservatives, conservative thought, and even conservative comedy. Allens show, in which he plays the manager of a sporting goods chain, features Allens biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across. But it is a rarity among sitcoms, in that any conservative...

    In Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held her own in another pinch-hit appearance for Sean Spicer, tussling with ABC chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl over the timeline for James Comey’s ouster from the FBI.  At one point in the briefing, Huckabee Sanders had clearly moved on from Karl to another reporter, but he nonetheless continued shouting and Huckabee Sanders invited Karl to “trade places” with her. If not, he’d best remain quiet because “I think it's my turn now.”‘I Think It's My Turn Now!’ ABC’s Karl, WH’s Huckabee Sanders Quarrel Over Comey FiringThe...

    NewsBusters ^ | May 11, 2017 | By Mike Ciandella
    The major health insurance provider Aetna announced that it would be pulling out of the last two states where it still participated in ObamaCare. Yet, the morning news shows of ABC and NBC completely ignored this important news story, while CBS This Morning gave it a mere 25 seconds. This continues a longstanding network news tradition of defending the Affordable Care Act and ignoring its failures. In a study released on October 28, 2016, the MRCs Bias by the Minute project detailed how the evening news shows on these three networks routinely ignored or barely covered ObamaCares failures during that...

    Just tuned in to ABC This Morning. Basically it repeats as a lead story the Washington comPost garbage. Very very little balance. For instance, while stating the DOJ says Comey did NOT ask for additional money for Russia investigation, a giant graphic on the screen says COMEY ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL MONEY. And they EXCITEDLY reported the boos rained upon Betsy DeVos by some bigots at a university in Florida AND how a New Jersey Republican was screamed at by a snowflake at a town hall. By the way, diversity at ABC This Morning has yet to include a white male....

    All three networks on Monday excitedly promoted the anti-Donald Trump potential of the testimony of a woman the President fired. CBS This Morning predicted that former acting Attorney General Sally Yates would deliver “explosive” “bombshells” about possible connections to Russia. Reporters on NBC’s Today reassured viewers that the Democrat was totally reliable. ABC's Good Morning America included a clip of liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein to make that point. A network graphic on CBS screamed, “Bombshell Testimony? Fmr. Acting AG Yates to Testify on Flynn & Russia.” Co-host Charlie Rose opened the show by trumpeting, “Testimony on Capitol Hill today could...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed President Trump's record in his first 100 days in office, saying, "He hasnt really proposed anything. "We're looking for the infrastructure bill, which ... we [would] welcome and want to work with the president on," Pelosi told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an exclusive interview that aired on "This Week" Sunday. "We welcome some of his ideas that he said in the campaign about work and home balance in terms of child care ... affordable child care." snip At one point during the interview, the House minority leader mistakenly referred...
