    The Washington Post ^ | August 26, 2016 | Fred Barbash
    Drew Pinsky’s six-year-old HLN show, “Dr. Drew On Call,” has been canceled by CNN, effective Sept. 22. CNN Money, in its reporting of the announcement, connected it to a broader shakeup at HLN, including the end of Nancy Grace’s flamboyant show devoted to criminal court cases. But the decision came eight days after Pinsky’s comments on a radio show on Aug. 17 questioning the health and medical care of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president. After looking at bits and pieces of Clinton’s health-care records she made public in 2015, he said he was “gravely...

    A Michigan rodeo clown is out of a job after he joked about gender identity at the Calhoun County Fair last week. “You’re either a boy or a girl, y’all understand,” “Rockin’ Robbie Hodges told the audience Thursday. “If you’re confused, then you need help, OK?” Some audience members appeared to laugh at the joke, but an attendee who recorded the skit said many people left out of protest, a local NBC News affiliate reported. Megan Harvey, the executive director for the Calhoun County Fair, said she was disappointed by the comments. “I was very disappointed, because we do not...

    On Monday morning in The New York Times, Comedy Central announced that it will be canceling almost effective immediately far-left comedian Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show after only a year and a half on the air of mocking and smearing conservatives to the delight of television critics and other liberal journalists from coast-to-coast.  Comedy Central President Kent Alterman revealed that, along with the fact that the contracts of Wilmore and other staffers are set to expire, Wilmore’s show simply “hasn’t resonated” despite “hoping against hope that it would start to click.”

    The Tampa chapter of the New Black Panther Party “has made an official decision” to kick out one of its members after he gave a recent television interview in which he stated his opinion of police had changed. In his interview with WTVT (FL), Clarence Jones — also known as Ali Abdul Muhammad — “knowingly and willfully misrepresented himself as a ‘leader’ of our organization,” despite being removed “from leadership approximately two months ago by collective decision,” TNBPP told the Daily Caller in a statement.

After reviewing the initial findings of the probe, James Murdoch is said to be arguing that Ailes should be presented with a choice this week to resign or face being fired. Lachlan is more aligned with their father, who thinks...

Early in Sunday’s 9:15 a.m. service, Executive Pastor Shane Duffey announced that Noble had been removed as pastor on July 1, after the NewSpring board of directors had “made a difficult and painful decision” to make a change. Duffey said the termination by the state’s largest and richest church came after Noble “had made unfortunate choices,” and that the board members had confronted Noble on numerous occasions regarding his use of alcohol. The announcement came three days after a closed-door,...

During her tenure, school violence has been on the rise and a number of people blame her and her policies.

Trump fired his wunderkind campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Monday at the campaign’s regular Trump Tower meeting. “Corey was escorted out of the building,” a source close to the campaign told Breitbart News. Lewandowski came to the meeting unaware that he had lost the support of the GOP presumptive nominee, the source said. At the meeting, attended by both senior campaign staff and members of the family, Trump reviewed different campaign metrics that were all faltering: cooperation with party leaders, fundraising, surrogate operations and most importantly the polls. The campaign manager seemed to have run out of ideas. When...

On Tuesday, Thornwell was fired. A manager at the placement service that arranged the vet’s job at Time Warner Cable in Charlotte told him...

There is also one other key difference between Gration and Hillary, emphasis mine: “It is false that I ignored State Department instructions and willfully disregarded State Department regulations concerning the use of commercial email for official government business.

    Germantown, Md. (ABC7) - Jeffrey Higgins says he never thought his same-sex marriage would be a problem at his job. But on November 8, his marriage came up during a conversation that led to his termination from Mother Seton Catholic Church in Germantown, where he worked part-time as a cantor and choir member for 1.5 years. On November 8, Higgins, 29, says Pastor Lee Fangmeyer invited him to his office, asked him about his marriage, and then asked him if he'd resign. "I was shocked," Higgins says.

    Two daycare workers have been fired for refusing to go along with the center’s transgender agenda. Madeline Kirksey, one of the workers who is an author of a Christian book, says her religious liberty rights have been violated. The two were fired after refusing to call a little girl a boy. The two male parents of a six-year-old little girl told employees at the school to refer to their daughter as a boy, and to call her by a new masculine name. The little girl’s hair had also been cut like a boy’s. Kirksey told Breitbart Texas in an interview,...

In his post, Halstead said that the issue is...

    LEWISVILLE – The story of a now-former Whataburger employee denying service to two police officers went viral Wednesday, but that former employee told us there are two sides to every story and the incident was just a misunderstanding.

He was back at the Lewisville Whataburger for lunch Wednesday at the request of Whataburger corporate staff, who asked him to come so they could apologize. "No person should make that comment to anybody," Marshal Magovern said. News 8 spoke to the former employee...

    The Weather Channel says it is getting rid of its reality TV shows, along with morning shows led by Sam Champion and Al Roker. The struggling network is looking to get back to its roots, with less expensive programming and a lineup that appeals more to weather geeks. An estimated 50 people out of The Weather Channel's staff of 1,400 are losing jobs as a result, the network said on Thursday. The NBC Universal-owned network had lured Champion from ABC's "Good Morning America" to host "AMHQ," a weather-focused morning news program. Starting in early November, Champion will work on weather...

    Sunday night Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager, Corey Lewandowski, lambasted the GOP establishment consultant class, when he joined Breitbart’s senior political investigative reporter Matthew Boyle on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot radio, channel 125. Lewandowski explained that what most infuriates the establishment consultants is they don’t have any say in Trump’s campaign or platform. “It drives them crazy. They want to say ‘I’ve run a campaign in the past. Pay me for my knowledge. I’ve been involved with previously failed presidential campaigns,’” he said. With Trump “That’s not how his campaign works,” added Lewandowski. “We don’t want these consultants...
