    When it comes to fake news stories, if anyone's an expert it's Dan Rather . . . The disgraced former CBS News anchor has a new twist on the vast right-wing conspiracy. Instead of plotting against poor innocents like Bill and Hillary, those conspiratorial conservatives are now creating phony feuds among themselves! On Rachel Maddow's show tonight, Rather declared himself "suspicious" about the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News, suggesting that Trump and Roger Ailes might have "gotten together and planned out" the feud for their mutual benefit.

    Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly of asking “the question every mainstream media liberal journalist wants to ask” and “the question Barack Obama wants to focus on” on Tuesday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel. Cruz was asked about his support for ending birthright citizenship and whether this means he favors amending the Constitution, he answered, “Well, as a policy matter, Megyn, it doesn’t make any sense anymore, that people who are here illegally, that their children would have automatic citizenship. That what that does is it serves...

    Donald Trump’s performance in his first presidential debate and his comments afterward showed that his unique skills for amassing a fortune, offering headline-grabbing retorts and ranking first in voter polls cannot protect him from his penchant for ill-advised public criticism of others. Trump’s recent verbal barbs have targeted the Fox News TV moderators of his first presidential debate, as well as fellow Republicans, Sen. John McCain, of Arizona, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina. Regardless of Trump’s opinion of his critics, he runs the risk of drawing attention away from his serious attempts to raise valid issues such as...

Ailes' office called Trump's office. We "can resolve this now," Ailes said to Trump,...

For a few days, Ailes didn’t know how to handle Trump’s full-throated attack on Kelly, who accused Trump of sexism during the debate. Eventually, as I reported yesterday, he made the same choice he always does: follow the ratings, and mend fences with Trump. But that process has meant that Fox has...

    After the big GOP debate event the other night, I was left devastated by the behavior of the Fox News hosts. Today, I hear this is all part of a larger plan for Fox News to betray it's core audience of conservatives in an attempt to move to the center and grab market share from the major networks. Guys, I am very depressed by this news. I was already sickened by Fox radio news every hour on the hour, and now to watch Megyn Kelly and other Fox leaders make a "career move" while serving masters of the GOPe is...

    Curtain has been pulled back, exposing Murdoch and his wrecking crew as an anti-God, anti-family, anti-freedom and anti-U. S. network within the propaganda machine We should thank Fox News for hosting the debates on Thursday evening. Hopefully, the bloom is finally off of the rose. The network did more in two hours than I have been able to do for quite some time. Toto was also on stage, pulling back the curtain of deceit and exposing the fact that Fox News is, indeed, in word and deed, a prominent member of the globalist puppeteers’ propaganda machine. Yes, the current puppet...

    It’s still over a month until the next GOP debate, hosted by CNN and the Reagan Library and moderated by Jake Tapper, but we are getting word that the format may be strangely familiar to viewers of the recent spectacle. The hosts have begun sending out invitations already and giving what sound like confirmed details of how it will play out. The similarities are rather hard to ignore. (Yahoo News) All but one of the 17 Republicans vying for the party’s presidential nomination have made the cut so far for the next debates hosted by CNN, the network said...
  • Hillary Defends ‘Incredibly Impressive’ Megyn Kelly from ‘Outrageous’ Trump

    Hillary Clinton confirmed during a rare Q&A session with the press on Monday that she found Donald Trump’s “blood” comments about Fox News’ Megyn Kelly “outrageous.” However, she added that some comments about women’s health from Trump’s rivals at the GOP debate were equally “outrageous.” “I said it was outrageous, I stand by that,” Clinton said of Trump’s words. “I think more people should say the same.” “But I just want to remind us that what they say about women — not one woman who is perfectly capable and incredibly impressive, able to take care of herself,” Clinton continued, referring...

    Gabriel Sherman at New York Magazine claims an inside look at Fox News’ and Roger Ailes’ handling of the weekend fight between Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly.Part 1, published Monday:According to two high-level Fox sources, Ailes’s diplomacy was the result of increasing concern inside Fox News that Trump could damage the network. Immediately following Thursday’s debate, Fox was deluged with pro-Trump emails. The chatter on Twitter was equally in Trump’s favor. “In the beginning, virtually 100 percent of the emails were against Megyn Kelly,” one Fox source, who was briefed on the situation, told me. “Roger was not happy. Most of the...

    RUSH: Here's Megyn Kelly, as she opened her show last night, portion of the opening monologue. KELLY: Mr. Trump did interviews over the weekend that attacked me personally. I've decided not to respond. Mr. Trump is an interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate. That's why he's leading in the polls. Trump, who is the front-runner, will not apologize, and I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism. So I'll continue doing my job without fear or favor. RUSH: Yeah, so there you have it. Everybody's decided to move on here. They've... (interruption) What are you...

    Here were Kelly’s questions, one by one. As the debate went on, her quotient of informational questions to headline-grabbing ones went up. But early on, during the highly anticipated beginning of the first debate of this presidential news cycle, it was a ratings-garnering fireworks show:

    True or not? On the one hand, this comes from Gabriel Sherman, one of Fox’s most relentless critics in the media, a guy who published an unflattering bio of Ailes last year and who offhandedly refers to Fox’s audience as “misogynist” in the course of this very post. On the other hand, it makes all the sense in the world that Ailes would offer Trump a bonanza interview with Kelly after the debate given the mega-ratings that would produce. If you were him, wouldn’t you do the same? _________ Ailes offered Trump the chance to do a special on Kelly’s...
  • Fox News In Disarray As Their Own Viewers Support Donald Trump Over Megyn Kelly

    The real reason Fox News gave in decided to play nice with Donald Trump is that they were flooded with criticism from their viewers after Megyn Kelly went after the top Republican candidate. Donald Trump returned to Fox and Friends this morning, where he was given his usual diet of Charmin fresh softballs to ramble on about. What was interesting about his appearance was that it even happened. Trump’s return to Fox marked a complete capitulation by the network after they tried to run him off of the stage during the first Republican debate. After Fox News had tried to...
