    Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for 2016 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, exposed a blatant conflict of interest on Wednesday that the Fox News Channel has been hiding for months. Lewandowski showed how Fox News has been hiding the fact that Fox News Channel Vice President Bill Sammon has a daughter working for the campaign of the Washington establishment-backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Sammon's daughter, Brooke Sammon, is Rubio's national press secretary, and obviously both have a vested interest in the success of the Rubio campaign and the demise of the other campaigns. CNN's Erin Burnett asked Lewandowski about Fox News's...

    Fox News Channel's top Washington editor ordered the network's reporters to couple any mention of global climate change with skepticism about the data underlying such a scientific conclusion, according to an e-mail released by a liberal media-watchdog group Wednesday. Media Matters for America said the internal e-mail from Bill Sammon, Fox News's Washington bureau chief, called into question the network's impartiality in reporting on climate change. In an e-mail sent last December to Fox News's journalists in the wake of a global conference on climate change, Sammon asked Fox journalists to "refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or...

    He seated a left-wing radio host in the coveted front row. He called on a liberal blogger from the Huffington Post. He even brought far-left columnist Helen Thomas out of the wilderness and let her ruminate about "so-called terrorists." Clearly, President Obama was making a point of showing deference to the Left at his first prime-time press conference, which was broadcast to millions from the stately East Room of the White House on Monday. Longtime members of the White House press corps who are accustomed to sitting in the front row of presidential press conferences were surprised to find their...

    A friend of my son's turned me on to these guys, don't know who they are aside from people who work in Washington. But they're pretty funny and smart, plus this show they have on their homepage is pretty good. The new show features and interview with Fox News' Bill Sammon about the primaries and the vote stealing in the House last week. He also lets it be known that Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner might be looking to get involved in the '08 race since he seems to have reemerged in the last week with press releases. Interesting. Plus...

    Bill Sammon's book: AT ANY COST ^ | 6-11-06 | Marc Costanzo
    A political reporter who was on the road with Gore during campaign 2000 takes a highly critical look at the post-election-day efforts by Gore and his team to, in the author's view, "steal the election." He chronicles the events as they unfolded day by day, and provides much behind-the-scenes reporting on the Gore team. Word from the Publisher AT ANY COST is the inside story of exactly how Al Gore dragged a one-day presidential election into a five-week ordeal and nearly pulled off the largest act of political larceny ever in American politics. Award-winning reporter Bill Sammon spent months on...

    Kudos again to FR, Buckhead, Howlin, Texasforever, NYCVirago, and of course Jim for having this site to begin with. "Chapter 9 "We're Toast" pg 143 - 145 directly credits Freepers above with uncovering the "missing Documents" out of President Bush's National Guard Service that were distinctly unflattering to the President, and also flat forgeries. I am reading the book at the moment, and I wanted to pause and give credit where credit is due. I thank all those who helped bring to light these roaches that considered themselves so important as to try to influence a Presidential Election. I thank...

  • Sammon Excoriates Media on Katrina Video: “Journalistic Fraud” & “Disingenuous”

    The media at all levels on Wednesday pounced on video released by the AP of government conference calls held as Hurricane Katrina hit last August, with most stories portraying them as containing a smoking gun about how President Bush was warned about potential levee failure. But as FNC's Brit Hume noted on his show Thursday night, the video, which MSNBC's Hardball hyped Wednesday as “breaking news,” was hardly any such thing, or “confidential video” as the AP hyped, since the video was made public at the time and the sessions were open to the press. During Hume's panel segment, Bill...

    ALBANY, Feb. 27 — Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton took a swipe at the White House on Monday, saying that Karl Rove, the president's political adviser, "spends a lot of time obsessing about me." Mrs. Clinton's comments came during an interview with an Albany radio station, after she was asked about a new book that quotes Mr. Rove as saying she is certain to be the Democratic presidential candidate in 2008. "I don't know where he gets his information from," Mrs. Clinton said of Mr. Rove during the interview on WROW-AM. "If I were thinking about this, I'd say, 'Why are...

    President Bush, stung by accusations that he responded too slowly to Hurricane Katrina, yesterday traveled to Texas hours after Hurricane Rita slammed ashore to monitor relief operations. "Our federal government is well-organized and well-prepared to deal with Rita," Mr. Bush told reporters in Colorado before flying to Austin, Texas. "We've got teams on the ground, beginning to analyze the situation and prepare the necessary response." Last night, the president issued a statement declaring major disasters in Louisiana and Texas. The declaration makes both states, local governments and some private nonprofit groups eligible for federal assistance, including grants for temporary housing...

    President Bush yesterday defended Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld against congressional critics and conceded the United States cannot force Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions.     In a year-end press conference, Mr. Bush expressed confidence in Mr. Rumsfeld, who has come under fire for his handling of the war in Iraq.     "I believe he's doing a really fine job," the president said in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. "And I believe that in a new term, members of the Senate and the House will recognize what a good job he's doing."     Mr. Bush said Mr. Rumsfeld will be needed in the...

    Someone with better access to Florida's election data that I am can now settle a question leftover from the 2000 Election. As you'll recall, the tv networks called Florida for Gore before the polls had even closed in the Central Time Zone part of the state, depressing the amount of votes Bush likely would have received. Now that the 2004 Election is over, it's possible to extrapolate how much that early call may have cost Bush. 1. Take the Florida counties that are in the Central Time Zone. Count the total number of votes cast in the presidential elections in...

    THE WASHINGTON TIMES ^ | By Bill Sammon
    American voters, while split over who should be the next president, overwhelmingly predict that President Bush will vanquish Sen. John Kerry, an expectation that could affect the outcome of a close election. While the various national polls show that voters prefer the president over Mr. Kerry by an average of four points, those same surveys place Mr. Bush some 20 points ahead on the question of which candidate is expected to win. "This could be a big cause of concern for Kerry," professor Vicki Morwitz of New York University said. "If people really think Bush is going to win, they...

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — President Bush's advisers, seeking to keep Sen. John Kerry on the defensive, yesterday said they would continue criticizing his reference to the sexual orientation of Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter.     Mr. Bush did his part to keep the story alive by expressing his displeasure with the Massachusetts Democrat for invoking Mary Cheney's homosexuality at Wednesday's presidential debate.     "The president does not believe it was appropriate," White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan told reporters aboard Air Force One. Mr. Kerry found himself on the defensive in an interview yesterday with CNN's Candy Crowley, who asked about...

John Kerry in post debate polls, has abruptly scheduled a major speech for tomorrow in hopes of halting Mr. Kerry's momentum.     In a rare, last-minute alteration to the presidential schedule, Mr. Bush has scrapped a planned talk on medical liability and instead will give what the White House called a "significant speech" about the two central issues of the campaign -- the war on terrorism and the economy.     The president is said to be eager...

    A defensive Dan Rather suggested last night that although he may have used forged documents in a CBS report criticizing President Bush's military service, the "thrust" of his report was true.      "Those who have criticized aspects of our story have never criticized the heart of it, the major thrust of our report," he told viewers on "60 Minutes." "George Bush received preferential treatment to get into the National Guard and, once accepted, failed to satisfy the requirements of his service."
