    NOTHING HAS CHANGED... WASHINGTON, D.C.-About 75 Beltway players gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on the evening of Feb. 2. The journalists and lawyers were there to toast White House special counsel Lanny Davis. As the dismay over the Monica Lewinsky allegations was giving way to the realization that the President just might dodge the bullet, Mr. Davis was returning to private practice after 13 months in the service of Bill Clinton. Wall Street Journal investigative reporter Glenn Simpson congratulated Mr. Davis for leaving the White House during “a brief window of opportunity between scandals” and toasted...

    During a concern-filled installment of CNN’s The Situation Room on Monday, host Wolf Blitzer anxiously posited that revoking the clearance of CNN national security analyst James Clapper would constitute a “potential national security threat.” Blitzer was quick to get Clapper on the phone after it was revealed that his security clearance might be in danger.
  • CNN star Don Lemon wants more outbursts during WH press briefings after April Ryan rudely shouts out

    CNN star Don Lemon praised his colleague April Ryan for shouting questions during Tuesday’s White House press briefing, essentially encouraging reporters to interrupt their peers before offering a tortured explanation of patriotism. Ryan interrupted White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders during Tuesday’s press briefing, repeatedly asking if President Trump is aware that NFL players who protest during the anthem are doing so because of police-involved shootings, as opposed to disrespecting the flag. Sanders attempted to call on a different reporter, but the CNN contributor shouted over everyone in the room until the press secretary acknowledged her. “The president has made...
  • CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Attacks GOP for Memo Release: ‘Putin Has Succeeded’

    Friday on CNN’s “Wolf,” host Wolf Blitzer harangued Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, for releasing the much-anticipated FISA memo and doing so not at the same time as the Democratic Party minority memo, so that a side-by-side comparison could be made. Stewart dismissed the criticism, but later in the segment, Blitzer accused Stewart and the GOP of allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to succeed given the member created doubt in U.S. government agencies. “So, Putin has succeeded because that’s what’s happening right now,” he said. “The whole nature of the support for the intelligence...

    The news media wants to tie everything it can to the Charlottesville attack. Wolf Blitzer was worried just a couple of hours after yesterday’s van attack in Barcelona, Spain, which left at least 13 dead and over 100 injured. “There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all, at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, even though they may be different characters and different political ambitions. They used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a large group of pedestrians.” The notion that Islamic terrorists, like those in Barcelona...

    You can't make this up. Blitzer actually contemplated whether Barcelona was a copycat of Charlottesville.

    The Hill ^ | Aug. 17, 2017 | Jonathan Easley
    CNN suggested Thursday that the terrorist attack in Barcelona, Spain may have been inspired by the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., because both involved a vehicle running down pedestrians. The claim has drawn criticism because vehicle-ramming has been used before by Islamic extremists to carry out terrorist attacks. Investigators have not drawn any links between the incidents in Barcelona and Charlottesville.

    (Full title) Blitzer: There Will Be Questions About Whether Barcelona Attack Is ‘A Copycat Version’ of Charlottesville Attack On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” anchor Wolf Blitzer stated that there will be questions about whether the Barcelona terror attack was a copycat of the Charlottesville, Virginia car attack. CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Scuitto said, “[I]n light of the uproar over the last several days, five days apart, you have white supremacists in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have — attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles, apparently to kill as...

    CNN's Wolf Blitzer was anchoring the network's breaking news coverage Thursday afternoon on the possible radical Islamic terror attack in Barcelona, Spain when he made the inartful and arguably pathetic assertion that the truck attack could be "a copycat" of the neo-Nazi car attack on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, you gotta hear this. This is Wolf Blitzed moments ago on CNN. Now, the Drive-Bys are trying to massage and manage Hillary's comment that all of these Trump supporters are deplorable. Now, the way it came out, she put Trump supporters in a basket, and half the people in the basket are deplorable. They're racist, they're sexist, they're bigots, they're xenophobes, all these horrible, rotten things. Then the other half that is in the basket of Trump supporters, they just feel disenfranchised. They feel ignored. They feel left out. They feel like the government's...

    CNN is pushing back on claims that one of its lead news anchors was seen celebrating Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president Thursday night, calling the accusation "absurd." A video circulating online shows anchor Wolf Blitzer dancing to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" while drinking from a glass and waving his hands in the air, apparently at the network's CNN Grill in Philadelphia. "CNN celebrates Hillary: Blitzer toasts speech, dancing, party!" reads a headline at the conservative Drudge Report, linking to the video. But a CNN spokesman said Friday that Blitzer was not showing bias toward the Democratic nominee, only celebrating...

    Maybe they were happy it was over, or maybe they were celebrating “history” being made — as they repeated all week — by their preferred candidate. Regardless, cameras captured CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer and Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger drinking wine and dancing with delegates as “Sweet Caroline” played over the loud speakers at the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention. CNN aired video of the two taking it all in: Blitzer with a glass of white wine in his hand, and Borger clapping and singing along.

    A hacking threat against CNN that rose to the FBI attention is actually a hoax, claims a freelance writer from Tennessee who is claiming responsibility for the post. David Garrett Jr., from Nashville, says he we the one who posted to the anonymous site ´pastebin´ claiming to be Sony hackers the ´Guardians of Peace.´ It included the bizarre demand that CNN should turn over anchor Wolf Blitzer. It is believed that the FBI issued a Joint Intelligence Bulletin based on that post that warned CNN and other media companies that hack attacks could be in the works.

    The hacker group that brought Sony to its knees is now threatening to hack CNN, the FBI warns. In a cryptic, menacing message posted online, the so-called 'Guardians of Peace' says: 'The result of investigation by CNN is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes.' The group then offers the bizarre demand that the network 'turn over' Wolf Blitzer, the popular host of CNN's 'Situation Room.'

    Police are often harshly criticized for their lethal use of firearms, giving many reason to wonder: Why don't police shoot to wound? That was CNN's Wolf Blitzer's question to legal scholar Jeffrey Toobin when discussing the shooting death of Ferguson, Missouri, teenager Michael Brown. "Why can't they shoot a warning shot?... Why can't they shoot to injure?" Blitzer queried. To answer Blitzer's (and your) questions, here's a general overview of why police don't shoot to wound:
