    The new lawsuit filed by two women against Fox News and several of its personalities is riddled with inaccuracies. This raises questions about the veracity of its claims. Jennifer Eckhart and Cathy Areu, a former Fox Business producer and frequent network guest, respectively, claim that they suffered sexual misconduct, harassment, and even rape at the hands of Ed Henry, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Howard Kurtz.The lawsuit immediately made waves in the mainstream media, where it was picked up by the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, CBS News, and other major outlets. It has been a top trending topic...

    A former Fox News associate producer and a show guest are suing the network over allegations of rape and sexual harassment. Jennifer Eckhart, a former associate producer on Fox Business, and Cathy Areu, a network guest, filed a federal lawsuit accusing recently-fired news anchor Ed Henry of rape and Tucker Carlson, Howard Kurtz, and Sean Hannity of sexual harassment. The lurid details aren’t important. What matters, as always, is credibility. And in the case of both these women, their credibility is suspect. Does this sound like a rape victim to you? From Washington Examiner: “I stand for all victims who...

    “I did suffer from sexual harassment from older men and men in power. And they made it very clear some of the exchanges that would have to happen in order for me to be promoted there. And I was so young, so naive. I didn't even really understand what was going on. I knew that I had to leave,” Emily Miller told Fox News’s Howard Kurtz on Sunday. . . . The New York attorney general’s office is reportedly investigating how the network handled sexual harassment allegations. The revelation came after NBCUniversal announced that NBC News Chairman Andy Lack was...

    Fox News anchor Howard Kurtz condemned network contributor Mollie Hemingway for naming the alleged whistleblower on his show. Hemingway mentioned Eric Ciaramella, 33, a career CIA analyst, on Sunday's episode of Media Buzz and argued that "the media should be in the business of sharing information that is in the public interest." Kurtz, however, disagreed both at the time and on the network's The Daily Briefing the next day. “I don’t think it’s the role of the media to disclose the identity of the whistleblower,” Kurtz said. “As you know, a name came up on my program yesterday. I don’t...

    The day has finally arrived when our online media monopolies are blatantly censoring the news that Americans can see. Chrissy Clark writes at The Federalist: Facebook and YouTube are removing all content from their platforms that mentions the anti-Trump whistleblower's name, whom news outlets including RealClearInvestigations have publicly identified as CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. No law bans media outlets or any person but the intelligence community inspector general from making the whistleblower's name public. A Facebook spokesperson said the platform will remove "any and all mention of the potential whistleblower's name.

    Twitter has suspended or forced users to delete tweets naming the alleged whistleblower despite stating it is not company policy to do so. Several Twitter users said their accounts were suspended for tweeting out the name. One said Twitter later messaged him saying the suspension was “an error.” A Twitter spokeswoman told Breitbart: “Per the private information policy, any Tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules.” The spokeswoman said posting the name of the person isn’t against the rules. Screenshots from a number of users confirm...

    Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist and a highly regarded independent journalist, created a stir during a panel discussion on FNC's Sunday morning program Media Buzz, hosted by Howie Kurtz.  At 11:19 A.M. E.T., as the program was being broadcast from Washington, D.C. without a delay, the topic of the "whistleblower," who set the ball rolling on the move to impeach the president because of the July 25 Trump-Zelensky phone call, came up. Mollie Hemingway: The New York Times did all but reveal his name in September and (unintelligble) all the details. . . Howie Kurtz: The New...

    WASHINGTON, DC — The discomfort in Howard Kurtz’ reaction was priceless as FOX News contributor, Mollie Hemingway, stunned her colleagues by actually using the whistleblower’s name during an appearance on FOX News’ Media Buzz Sunday.It’s difficult to understate how gutsy she was to go against the entire media establishment and refuse to play along, even if the whistleblower’s identity is already well known having been previously published in Paul Sperry’s article at Real Clear Investigations.

    Rudy Giuliani: The witness I relied upon if you paid any attention to what I did last week is someone named Victor Shokin. That’s the affidavit I put out plus two others… Those three all say that Joe Biden pressured the president to fire Shokin because Shokin had just come upon a laundered $3 million transaction to Hunter Biden. And he was told by the Serbian government that the United States government would not allow to give that information out. That’s the reason they say they were fired… That’s a lot stronger proof than any silly whistleblower nonsense about something...

    "Media Buzz" host Howard Kurtz criticized rival network MSNBC for its coverage of President Trump Sunday and singled out host Nicolle Wallace for talking over the president's speech and calling him a liar while it streamed live on air last week. "MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace did exactly what she and colleagues did during [Attorney General] William Barr’s [Capitol] Hill testimony -- broke in, in the middle, to accuse people of lying -- in this case, while the president was still speaking," Kurtz said. Wallace broke in mid-sentence during Trump's Wednesday news conference about the House opening a formal impeachment inquiry...

    Fox Insider ^ | MAY 31, 2018 | As seen on America's Newsroom
    "MediaBuzz" anchor Howard Kurtz said Thursday the media is showing selective outrage after comedian Samantha Bee called White House adviser Ivanka Trump a "feckless c---." Reacting on "America's Newsroom," Kurtz said Bee's comment is a "shining example of viciousness" but there has been "no uproar" against TBS to this point, compared to the "Roseanne" show cancellation just days ago. "It's the worst word in the English language that you can use to describe a woman. ... Instead it's being reported as, 'Wow did you see what Samantha Bee said?' The media's outrage against Roseanne, which is justified, is kind of...
  • Kurtz: The Democrats' Impeachment Fantasy

    Nancy Pelosi is running away from impeachment. And the fact that she’s doing so speaks volumes about where her party is in the Trump era. Let’s start with the inconvenient fact—inconvenient for Democrats—that President Trump hasn’t committed anything close to an impeachable offense. Critics can skewer him over his policies and persona, or speculate about what the Russia investigation might find, but mostly they just wish that somehow he could be magically removed from the White House. That, however, is not the view of much of the liberal base that can provide the energy and the money as Pelosi’s party...

    President Donald Trump's press conference on Thursday was the "harshest and most sustained attack on the media by a president of the United States in history," according to Howard Kurtz. During the question-and-answer session, Trump repeatedly criticized CNN and tussled with its reporter, Jim Acosta, and was terse with MSNBC correspondent Kristen Welker. "You couldn't turn away," Kurtz said on "Special Report" tonight. {..snip..}

    Until the last couple of weeks, the conventional wisdom was that a Trump nomination would all but assure a second Clinton presidency. After all, she’s the former senator and secretary of State with an awesome political machine, and he’s the untested billionaire with a penchant for divisive rhetoric. Plus, Democrats have an Electoral College edge and have won the popular vote in five of the last six campaigns. But some commentators see troubling signs in Clinton’s performance so far and wonder how she would withstand a Trump onslaught. The Donald has high negatives, to be sure, but Hillary does as...
