    CBS paid more than $5 million in a settlement agreement reached in the 1990s with a woman who claimed former '60 minutes' executive producer Doug Hewitt sexually assaulted her, the New York Times reported Thursday. Lawyers hired by CBS to investigate the workplace culture of '60 Minutes' are set to present a report to the board next week, according to the Times, which obtained a draft. The report, precipitated by the high profile removals of '60 Minutes' producer Jeff Fager and CBS chief executive Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations, found the program's separation from the larger company to be...

    The commentator is joining MSNBC's Saturday morning lineup, a move that is sure to raise eyebrows at the network and among the network's left-leaning fans. MSNBC, which has been soaring lately in both ratings and in advertising prices, is giving radio host Hugh Hewitt his own show, adding another conservative voice to a lineup that already includes Fox News poach Greta Van Susteren and former George W. Bush communications hand Nicole Wallace. Hewitt's self-titled show will air on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m., starting June 24, as part of an expansion of the network's weekend programming in July.

    The radical transformation of cable news continues. According to a report by Yashar Ali in New York Magazine, conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt is in talks with MSNBC about the creation of a new television show Hewitt would host. According to New York Magazine’s sources, the show would air on weekend evenings. Initially, Hewitt had been offered a show for weekend mornings, but Hewitt turned the offer down because he reportedly wants an evening show. Hewitt is a longtime conservative radio host who is broadcast through the popular Salem Radio Network. He is also currently a contributor for...

    Washington Post ^ | 3-25-17 | Hugh Hewitt
    By Hugh Hewitt March 25 The pulling of the GOP health-care bill this week was a big loss, and perhaps significant beyond its own costs, as it may signal that the “Area 51” sub-caucus within the Freedom Caucus is made up not so much of conservative Republicans as parties of one with no interest in an agenda shared beyond whatever exists in the space between their own ears.

    The Blaze ^ | February 27, 2017 | Tré Goins-Phillips
    In an infrequent moment of criticism, Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, an unflinching defender of President Donald Trump, admitted that the commander in chief is “too sensitive at times.” Conservative radio show host and Washington Post columnist Hugh Hewitt, after arguing that Trump is “President Promise Keeper,” asked Hannity: “What’s the negative? What’s the one thing that bothers you about him?” The Fox host, who agreed with Hewitt’s assessment that Trump has kept his campaign promises so far, said that it might, in fact, be the president’s stick-to-itivness that has hurt him. Hannity said Trump is “not a perfect person.”...

He said to move on and focus on the congressional races. --This morning Hewitt said that the presidential race is NOT over, that the most reliable polls show the race to be a dead heat --Head of the GOP in Ohio is now supporting Trump (boo hoo for crybaby Kasich) --Mark Levin (anti-Trump for a long, long time) has finally grudgingly endorsed Trump, spends a lot of time with a NeverHillary discussions...

    There was a time when people like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson were powerful voices within the Conservative movement. That was BT or “Before Trump,” when most American Conservatives were asleep at the wheel and operating on status quo neo-conservative autopilot, completely unaware that the maverick radio voices we hailed as rebels, were actually globalist shills-for-hire. The silent majority was silent because we were napping, however, Trump has awakened the slumbering giant and we’re hip to the globalist trick played upon us by so-called radio conservatives, politicians, media, and pundits, who subtly pepper falsehoods like, amnesty is good,...

    Dear Friends, it doesn’t matter whether the Anti-Trumpist of the day emanates from Washington DC (congress), from media (punditry), or from the special interest groups doing the bidding of Wall Street (US CoC), the ultimate thread which connects them all is money. Lots, and lots, of money. These are financial interests. Not meaning to be so simplistic, but it’s always about the money. Behind every globalist word, behind every globalist ideology, behind the convenient use of pop culture – you find the motives of power interests all circle around money.

    Conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt believes Republican delegates should change the convention rules and nominate someone other than Donald Trump for president. On his Wednesday morning show, Hewitt likened sticking with the presumptive GOP nominee to “ignoring Stage 4 cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it.” “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours,” he said.

    It’s predictable; it’s transparent (if you dig into it); and yet it remains as one of the most undiscussed aspects to the current political climate: Multi-media political pundits, including big name National Radio Talk Show Hosts, being paid by DC operatives, Super-PACs, and Campaigns to protect the establishment figures. (see here) They hide, at least they try to, behind layers of constructed LLC’s intended to protect them from sunlight. They also rely upon delays in legally required reporting timeframes to carry out their goals and avoid discovery until after they have been successful in their efforts.

    Salem Radio Network, whose parent Salem Media Group also owns Hot Air, has had perhaps the most stable national network line-up in the business — but big changes are now afoot. My friend and mentor Hugh Hewitt, who has had his national profile skyrocket during the 2016 Republican presidential primary cycle, will move from his long-ensconced position on afternoon/evening drive to mornings, giving Hugh a head start on the news cycle. Bill Bennett, who had served in two Cabinet-level positions in the Ronald Reagan administration, will move into a “host emeritus” position focusing on special interviews and in-depth analysis.

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Sunday slammed Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) and the House Freedom Caucus for "holding the House hostage" and blocking Republicans from electing a successor to outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who wants to resign at the end of the month. Hewitt said on NBC's "Meet The Press" that he hopes Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) — who has said he doesn't want to be Speaker — will change his mind. Hewitt then criticized Brat, who was on the roundtable, and the conservative House Freedom Caucus for giving Ryan a tepid response. "There's like 15 of you...

On State of the Union this morning, Tapper asked Palin if she thought Trump got “gotcha” questions.Palin said, “I’d rather have a president who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit.”She added that the public doesn’t “give a flying flip” which specific leaders are overseeing specific regions anyway. Palin suggested a good metric to judge candidates by might be...
