    Unlike Roseanne Barr, so-called “comedian” Samantha Bee will apparently be allowed to keep her show on the air after making offensive, profane comments about the First Daughter, Ivanka Trump. Bee, who came under a tidal wave of criticism last week when she casually referred to Ivanka as a “feckless c*nt” apologized to viewers on Wednesday night, insisting that she was on a crusade to take the C-word “back” for feminists. She acknowledged, however, that the way she used the word on last week’s program was not a great example of that reclaiming effort.

    CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. Of course, CNN took issue with the facts and put together a lineup of media figures to beat up on the President for criticizing them. Among the group was CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News. “I have been talking about this ever...

    The former attorney general of the state of New York allegedly had a pattern of slapping and choking women with whom he was intimate. He also spat at them, demanded threesomes, insulted them, threatened them and called one (who had dark skin) his "brown slave," according to recent accusations. One woman claims that without warning he slammed her so hard that he broke her eardrum. Another woman says that his palm left a red welt on her face that remained visible the following day. These and other details about Eric Schneiderman were disclosed by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer in...

    Full Title: Dinesh D’Souza demands equal justice for Rosie O’Donnell’s FIVE violations. He was convicted for just one. Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, who was indicted in 2014 for using straw donors to contribute $20,000 to a GOP candidate in 2012, is demanding equal justice under the law for liberal comedian Rosie O’Donnell, who made illegal contributions to five different Democratic political candidates. As BizPac Review has reported, O’Donnell used five different addresses, according to records published in the New York Post, and four variations of her name to illegally donate to five liberal politicians, including Trump-hating Democrat Adam Schiff. During...

    t’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.” After highlighting what would be discussed...
  • More Joy Reid Anti-Gay Writings Discovered — MSNBC Host Claims Site was Hacked

    Joy Reid’s old blog, The Reid Report (2000-2014), is littered with even more anti-gay posts than were originally discovered, reports the far-left blog Mediate. The MSNBC host is claiming these latest discoveries were not written by her, but by hackers as a means “to taint my character.” Earlier this year, Reid admitted to authoring a number of posts on her old site that mercilessly ridiculed then-Republican Florida Governor Charlie Crist as a homosexual (even after he married a woman). Reid was clearly using homosexuality as a pejorative, as a weapon of ridicule, so the left-wing MSNBC anchor’s homophobia has already...

    On Friday, shortly after President Donald Trump's announcement of air strikes against Syria, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow twice put on her tinfoil hat, alleging that there is a "perception that the president may have ordered these strikes in part because of scandal," and that Trump's decision "may have ... (been) inflected by the scandals surrounding him." Maddow even contended that this alleged perception of scandal-driven decision-making will "affect the impact and the effectiveness of these military strikes." Maddow's first speculation appeared shortly after Trump's announcement:Transcript RACHEL MADDOW: As we follow the news in these incredible days that we have been having recently...

    What did Fox News' Laura Ingraham say that cost her advertisers? About David Hogg, the teenage Parkland, Florida, high school shooting survivor, Fox's Ingraham tweeted: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)" Insensitive, given the mass shooting that killed 17 at Hogg's high school? Yes. Insulting and condescending coming from an Ivy League-educated lawyer? Yes. But the punishment does not fit the crime. Hogg urged Ingraham's advertisers to drop her show. Several did. Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept her apology....

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.Stelter set up the tone of the show to once again be all about bemoaning how Trump treated...

    President Trump shocked the world Thursday night when it was announced that he planned to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in the coming months. The political world was so overwhelmed by the news that even the journalists at CNN were more or less optimistic. Yet over at MSNBC, host Rachel Maddow was anything but enthused by the idea as she spewed skepticism and threw shade at the commander-in-chief for excepting North Korea’s offer. Towards the beginning of her bitter rant, Maddow seemed to question the President’s intelligence and/or knowledge of history for taking the meeting: You might...

    The Wednesday CNN town hall promoting gun bans and moderated by Jake Tapper was arguably a train wreck from the beginning. Between a student saying Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reminded him of the shooter and shouts of ‘murderer’ at NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, it was out of control. But in the wee hours of Thursday morning, things got worse for the anti-gun network when the local Florida ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that CNN had been planting questions. The whistleblower was Colton Haab, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who heroically shielded his fellow students from the bullets with...

    Recall the outrage from Washington Post liberal columnist Jennifer Rubin when President Trump said George W. Bush was “unpatriotic”? Or when Trump said of Democrats that they had “acted like terrorists” during the budget fight? Or when Trump attacked Democrats for “purposely sabotaging the country’s economic recovery” and added that “These guys bet against America all the time”? Rubin was particularly incensed when the President went after pro-choice activists as “terrorist groups” and said that the words of a Democratic Senator “borders on treasonous.” Actually, no. Rubin was not outraged. Nor were her colleagues in the liberal media. Doubtless it...

    So-called fact-checking website PolitiFact proved just how much of a hack organization they were on Thursday when they announced that they were hiring former Florida Congressmen David Jolly (R) and the infamous Alan Grayson (D). The backlash was swift and came from across the political spectrum, especially for Grayson. The backlash was even present on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered where Cupp and TV’s Andy Levy hilariously mocked the “fact-checker” for hiring the “Archduke” of lying. “In his 2010 campaign, he got called out by another fact-checking website for using edited video in a campaign ad to make his Republican opponent...

    ABC kicked off Sunday’s Good Morning America with five minutes dedicated to the government shutdown. And despite the fact that Democrats were bragging that they had the votes to do it, the liberal network trashed Republicans and touted how President Trump would take all the blame. “The government is not going to stay closed forever. The question is how long will it take. And you can see the argument on both sides. As our polls show, you guys showed it, people coming into this debate believe the President and Republicans will be to blame by a wide wide margin,” hyped...

    Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh came locked and loaded for Wednesday’s show, torching the liberal media as “childish,” “unstable,” and “entirely unfit to discharge their constitutional duties” in light of their “unhinged instability” at Tuesday’s White House press briefing concerning President Trump’s health. Limbaugh also hammered the liberal media as having turned the briefing room into “nothing more than Romper Room without a teacher” with “the kids playing in the sandbox, not getting their toys and not getting their lunches and not getting recess.” “Ladies and gentlemen, the childish display, the childish exposition and behavior of the Drive-By Media...

    After CBS initially ignored the Iranian people’s uprising against their oppressors from Thursday to Saturday, and then downplayed the murder of two protesters and shootings of others earlier on Sunday, White House Correspondent Major Garrett finally dedicated some sort of significant time to the subject (two minutes 31 seconds) for the network when he was filling in on Face The Nation. Unfortunately, he only brushed over the details and questioned if President Trump should be speaking out in support of the people fighting for freedom. Garrett began the show with an interview with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and before getting...

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...
