  • Fired RedState Writer Slams Site Over Hypocrisy of Layoffs: We Were ‘Insufficiently Partisan’

    The conservative blog RedState experienced “mass firings” Friday because of what its parent company, Salem Media, characterized as a decision influenced by finances. But one writer who was laid off said she is skeptical of that characterization, adding that she believes the website is effectively trying to silence voices that are not, in their view, sufficiently supportive of President Trump and his policies... “If this is a decision just strictly made for money purposes, they would want to keep the ones who were bringing in the most [page] views,” Wright said... Indeed, Mediaite obtained RedState’s traffic report for the month...
  • 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...
  • Flashback: Intelligence Community Believes It Was a Different Michael Cohen Who Visited Prague

    CNN’s Jake Tapper reported Wednesday morning that intelligence officials looked into allegations from an explosive unsubstantiated memo that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague in late August to meet with Russian officials, and found that it was a different Michael Cohen who visited the city. Cohen strongly denied the charges Tuesday, saying that he had never been to Prague. The Washingtonian reported that two sources at the University of Southern California confirmed that Cohen was in Los Angeles at the time he was supposed to have been in Europe. Tapper seemingly confirmed Cohen’s story. “People tried to run that down...
  • Sources: Mueller has evidence Cohen was in Prague in 2016, confirming part of dossier

    WASHINGTON The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White...

    RUSH: I was overwhelmed with email reaction to Fox News Sunday yesterday, more than ever. I’m hard-pressed to figure out why. I think it’s probably ’cause I don’t do these things very often and we’re in the midst of massive audience growth and so forth, but I just want to thank everybody. And even though those of you who were snarky about the glasses, I love you. I absolutely love you. “You look like Harry Potter.” You know, every time I go on TV, I prove what it is about TV. The only thing that matters is how you look,...

    Student survivors of the horrific Parkland, FL school shooting spoke on multiple Sunday shows today, and one of the students had a very direct message for President Trump. Trump claimed yesterday that Democrats “didn’t want to” solve the gun problem. David Hogg, who said the day after the shooting that “children will continue to die if we don’t take a stand now,” looked into the camera on CBS’ Face the Nation and said this to the President: “President Trump, you control the House of Representatives, you control the Senate, and you control the executive. You haven’t taken a single bill...

    It looks like we may soon see a merger of two of the most well-known Trump-skeptic news sites.According to the The Daily Beast, the billionaires behind Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire are currently in talks to buy Glenn Beck’s conservative media empire TheBlaze. As the Beast noted in their piece, the Wilks family funds Shapiro’s site and are looking to “to expand their holdings in conservative media.” They previously looked at Breitbart, but a difficult relationship with Rebekah Mercer prevented that from occurring. Shapiro didn’t exactly deny that talks are underway regarding the potential purchase of TheBlaze. Per the Beast:...

    Wednesday during a segment on HLN’s “SE Cupp Unfiltered” critical of former Trump chief strategist and Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon, Mediaite managing editor Colby Hall took on the “constituents of Alabama.” During the panel’s criticism of Bannon, Hall said it was time to “sort of look down our nose” at Bannon’s receptive audience at a rally he spoke at on Tuesday in Fairhope, AL. “I think it’s time to sort of look down our nose at the constituents of Alabama who apparently think a pro wrestling-mantra like Steve Bannon – like, he was literally channeling Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage...

    It is more than somewhat likely that Infowars publisher Alex Jones wants sites like ours to post rants like this. But in this instance, we’ve decided to indulge him, because this one is just too bizarre to ignore. Wednesday, Jones posted a wild, 12-minute rant against the mainstream media and, specifically, NBC’s Megyn Kelly. Jones recently sat for, according to his account, three extended interviews with Kelly, which are to be edited down and will soon air on Kelly’s new show Sunday Night.

    Oops! Wrong Castro twin brother.  They do look alike being identical twins but they have very unidentical jobs which Mediaite should have been aware of in differentiating between Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro from HUD Secretary Julian Castro. Unfortunately, Mediaite did mix them up by identifying Joaquin, not Julian, Castro as a vice-presidential hopeful in a story this morning titled, ABC Anchor Asks VP Hopeful Castro if Hillary is ‘Sensitive Enough’ to White Trump Voters:
  • Memo to George Will, Bill Kristol, and All GOP ‘Never-Trumpers’: Good Riddance!

    Mediaite ^ | June 27, 2016 | by Matt Schneider
    If for some reason, though, Kristol and Will believe Trump poses such a unique threat to America and to the Republican party’s legacy, then one final and admittedly simple point should have put them at ease long ago. Trump is not running for dictator, but instead for President of a country with a strong system of separation of powers and checks and balances in place. The Republican party that Will foolishly and haphazardly abandoned will, at all times, be in Congress to reign in any of Trump’s outlandish proposals. Therefore, all “Never-Trumpers” should take a deep breath and realize that...

    From Mediaite: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was “entirely using emotion, conjuring horror stories” about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloids––which Zakaria referred to as “basically their Fox News.” Zakaria argued that “the media does have a bias...

    Fox News scored quite the interview Friday morning with former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair to get his take on the successful British referendum to leave the European Union, but decided to cut it short to hear Donald Trump speak. Blair was the perfect guest to discuss the political and legal turmoil now facing Britain, and especially to discuss the news that Prime Minister David Cameron will be resigning in the coming months. But then Trump began speaking in Scotland, and Fox made up its mind.

    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    After a gunman killed 49 people in a terrorist attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, a prominent conservative blogger came out as gay in Monday blog post. Jim Hoft is the proprietor of Gateway Pundit, a stridently conservative blog best known for its anti-Islam and pro-Israel stances and its embrace of anti-Obama conspiracy theories. Hoft has long been open about his sexuality to his friends and family, but never publicly addressed the issue. “Like most gay Americans, I don’t wear my sexuality on my sleeve…” he wrote in a blog post cross-posted to Breitbart. “I’ve been a conservative activist...

Weaver said, “We should perhaps follow the example of yourself when your wife was running for Congress.” Matthews muttered “Oh here we go” as Weaver said that Kathleen Matthews––who mounted an ultimately unsuccessful congressional bid this year––never released their tax returns.

    Will [Donald Trump] have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure. For every one he’ll lose 1½ , two Republican women. Trump’s comments like “You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,” that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally. — Ed Rendell, a surrogate for the Hillary Clinton campaign

    The Blaze’s Dana Loesch tore into Donald Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany Monday, at one point attacking her for being “flat-chested.” Loesch blasted McEnany for making grand claims on CNN about how anti-Trump conservatives weren’t actually conservative, despite McEnany herself having made no discernible contribution to the conservative movement before this election cycle. “Who the hell is this chick?” she asked. “Babycakes, this was more than going on television and flashing them pearly whites and your flat-chested, red-dressed, over-sprayed bleach blonde hair, while you sit here and you preach all this stuff about who is and isn’t a conservative.
