    Despite his fall from prominence due to serial lying and removal from the anchor desk of NBC Nightly News, current MSNBC breaking news anchor Brian Williams will be given another chance to rein over a daily news program when, according to CNN’s Brian Stelter, MSNBC awards him a half-hour show at 11:00 p.m. at a date to be determined. Stelter reported late Monday night that Williams's program will be slated to run from Labor Day to Election Day and last for only a half-hour "wrapping up the day's campaign news, the sources said." Of course, this brings to mind Williams’s...

    This could go down as the most egregious example of an MSM “anchor” groveling at the feet of a liberal activist . . . During MSNBC’s coverage of the opening night of the Republican convention, Tavis Smiley complained that, unlike cop killers, “killer cops” are not called “vicious and despicable and cowardly and reprehensible.” Brian Williams immediately piped up: “Tavis, if I appointed you president and you still refused to run we would have to appoint you.” I’m guessing Williams meant to say “if I nominated you for president you and you refused to run we would have to appoint...

I mean, in general, that point is evident since he lost the anchor’s desk at Nightly News and was suspended for six months for lying about his journalistic exploits.

    MSNBC breaking news host and ex-NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was allowed out on MSNBC’s airwaves early Friday afternoon to discuss President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima so he could resurrect a taped report that aired in 2005 on the 60th anniversary of the nuclear bomb’s dropping on the Japanese city. In the course of discussing the event afterward, though, Williams threw some shade in the direction of the U.S. military and then-President Harry Truman by complaining that “we’re the only nation to have used them in anger” against the horrifying Axis Powers member.

    rian Williams’s mouth is getting him in trouble again. The disgraced ex-Nightly News anchor on Monday closed out a segment on Castro by declaring liberal Washington Post writer Eugene Robinson a “Pulitzer Prize-winning communist.”  Williams tried to dig himself out of the hole, retreating, “Communist. Wow! Columnist....I think I have that on the mind. You are not, in fact, a communist. You are a friend of ours and a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with the Washington Post.” Brian Williams: Eugene Robinson Is a ‘Pulitzer Prize-Winning Communist’ The slip came after Robinson was discussing Cuba’s “dangerous path for survival” as it attempts reforms....

    As you may have heard, MSNBC has seen some big (and warranted) changes in 2015. Add it all up, and every program that existed from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM EDT as recently as six months ago no long exists. The alterations are swift: A national correspondent (Kate Snow) and a political director (Chuck Todd) will be joining and rejoining, respectively, the 19-year-old cable network. Morning Joe will occupy 25 percent of live (or plausibly live) programming per day. Opinion-based programming––at least after the morning show and before primetime––has been cleared away as a more traditional news focus takes...

However what is most significant about the report is what, or rather who, it does not mention.

Is this part of a not so subtle effort on the part of NBC...

Good, he’s hit a nerve. At his campaign kickoff announcement at Trump Towers, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you (gesturing to audience member), they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”...

In an interview on Fox on Saturday, the real estate mogul hit back at critics who allege that he's just running for president for publicity, saying that his campaign has damaged his image and his businesses. "This isn't good for my brand, I think it's bad for my brand," Trump said. "Maybe I'm leading in polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers, I lose people." Still, Trump maintained that his businesses are "very strong," and haven't been too hurt by the bad publicity yet.

    The horrific murder of a pretty young woman by an illegal alien at a prime tourist location in San Francisco is validating the argument of Donald Trump on the influx of violent criminals, and causing at least some local media reflection in arguably the nation’s most politically correct city. This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    Quit watching NBC, period. Everyone. Have some backbone and self discipline. Quit watching that network. Permanently, no matter what. I do not watch nor will I ever watch it again.

    NBC has severed all ties with Donald Trump after his insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants. "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump," the network said in a statement. "To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC. In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Celebrity Apprentice on...

    NBCUniversal, under pressure from an array of Hispanic groups, is severing its business ties to presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Miss USA pageant, scheduled for July 12, will no longer air on the network. Nor will the Miss Universe pageant, scheduled for next January. Both pageants were, until now, jointly owned by NBC and Trump. "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," the company said in a statement on Monday. "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump." Speaking to reporters after...

    After NBCUniversal severed its relationships with Donald Trump on Monday, the billionaire businessman and presidential candidate responded by invoking suspended NBC anchorman Brian Williams and threatening to meet NBC in court. Here is Trump's statement: "As of today, Donald J. Trump is no longer affiliated with NBC. Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct--- that is why our country is in serious trouble.

    Former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been demoted down to breaking news anchor at MSNBC. However, on top of the humiliation of such a demotion, Williams shouldn't be too surprised to find a somewhat less than welcoming reception from the sanity challenged network of Big Ed and Reverend Al. According to a New York Post report, the rank and file staffers at MSNBC absolutely hate Brian Williams for a less than complimentary report on the state of cable news on his former Rock Center program:

    After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided the fate of habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made a brilliant decision by removing him from the anchor chair at the “NBC Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other chronic liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on the cable news network that has turned into a ratings disaster. MSNBC has a pathetic number of viewers for a national news network, usually about 500,000 per night. This is only...

    I think I’ve found the perfect running mate for The Donald: Brian Williams. Then the ticket would have two ids (the “it”) with an ego (the “I”) and a superego (the above “I”) – and at least one of them is not too smart.WTF (Winning the Future)!

    Dismissed from his post at NBC's Nightly News for making up stories, Brian Williams has been reassigned to the company's floundering cable channel where he has vowed "to reclaim my reputation, one viewer at a time." Whether Williams will be able to accomplish was thrown into doubt by his stubborn insistence that his on-the-air fabrications "weren't intended to mislead people." "Fiction isn't inherently untrue," Williams observed. "Many novels and movies portray deeper truths via fictional characters and events. We don't deride Mark Twain or Steven Spielberg for making up stuff. While I don't claim to be as good at it...
